Linda Schlitt Gonzalez and Steven Schlitt presently co-own the company and are both Presidents. With over 120 full time sales associates, our company is known for its excellent training program. Some of our recent technological innovations include a national website that enables consumers to enter their home requirements and search the website to find home that meets their needs. Then our agents follow up to further assist in their search for their ideal home. All of our listings appear on the Realtor.com website and the Coldwell Banker national website. Many of our agents also maintain individual websites to attract even more buyers. Our services include a concierge system for locating area services, a closing coordinator, and customer service coordinator. In addition, we maintain an active rental department and a property management service. The real estate industry is changing rapidly, and it is imperative that you choose a company that stays on the cutting edge to connect with more buyers than the competition to provide the level of service that consumers expect today.
Coldwell Banker was founded in 1906 when Colbert Coldwell, a young real estate Sales Associate, observed families trying to piece their lives together following the disastrous San Francisco earthquake. Together with Benjamin Banker, our founders created a company with higher standards than the post earthquake opportunistic Sales Associates who acquired property from vulnerable sellers and then resold it at huge profits. Coldwell and Banker saw the need for honest, knowledgeable real estate professionals and we have kept their vision and mission in mind for over 100 years.
