I’m curious about what your thoughts are on this firm. A friend of mine is working there and I’m just about to get licensed (for the 3rd time in 5 years lol) – I lived in NYC for many years in SoHo and have worked for a couple of NYC firms but have since moved out to Suffolk County. I want to sell RE out here ($650k plus residential homes and also some retail and commercial properties)..
I know this branch of Coldwell Banker is ran well, they’re ethical and seem to have things in order. I did meet and interview with the managing broker/principal once already about possibly working there but I just read your piece here and am now looking at other options.
I do plan on working some NYC and Brooklyn deals through out the year too as I have a close friend that owns a brokerage on Fulton St in the city.
Anyhow, any of your feedback, comments or input is greatly appreciated

Coldwell Banker has a great reputation nationally, but in order to choose a local branch to work for you need to do some research. I do know that ColdWell Banker doesn’t have very much of a presence in Brooklyn or Manhattan. In order to work effectively here you will need to be a REBNY member as well as a NAR member. In order to become a REBNY member you need to work for a brokerage that is also a REBNy member.
Hope that helps.
