Coldwell Banker Moves

coldwell-bankerThe firm is moving (has moved?) from its Field Point Road headquarters to what was Preferred Properties glass box on the Post Road. Too bad – those were nice digs.

And without getting into some sort of “who’s better” contest, I notice that they have an ad in today’s real estate section of the Greenwich Time boasting that their 120 agents were involved in 22% of every transaction that went down between August 1st and November 30th of this year. That’s great, and certainly better than I’ve done this fall, but the actual numbers behind those statistics aren’t all that encouraging: We saw 66 contracts in those four months, 17 condos (22% = 4) and 49 single families (22% = 11). Divided among 120 agents, it would seem that many of them had the same disappointing fall that I did. Oh well, onward and upward.

  1. Did I missed something, where did preferred properties go, are they sharing the same building, or did they move, or did they merge?

    Preferred is gone, merged into someone – I assume they went into Coldwell Banker, since CB is taking over their lease. Marge Rowe really was Preferred, in a sense, and when she went, there it went.
    Same thing with Sally O’brien. She sold out to Prudential (?) but after her tragic death just about all of her associates scattered and now I’d guess that Pru is wondering what exactly they bought – pretty much nothing.

    What happened to Marge Rowe? I could have sworn I saw her at the supermarket not too long ago, all decked out in an almost ankle-skimming mink coat–the kind they just don’t make any more.

    What a lady!

    The lady is still kicking up her heels, it’s reliably reported. Smart, though, getting rid of her business just in time to avoid this unpleasantness. Timing is everything in real estate.
