I was searching for the "best fit" with a firm for my new real estate career! After interviewing with three firms, I determined without a doubt that Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage was the company to best lead me in this new adventure. When I met Sandi Hess, she so graciously, answered the questions that I had, plus gave me an excellent review of the company, education opportunities and what I might expect. I have been with the company for 3 years and the training has been excellent and the weekly sales meetings, home tours and other associates provided that welcoming touch.

My first experience with CBRB was having an interview with a managing broker, namely Sandi Hess. Sandi became the “go to” person for things that I could not completely understand. She’s friendly, approachable, and is always available. The training program was a delight, Gary B. the teacher, was highly experienced, made learning fun. This program enables one to gear up to sell and understand real estate. There are so many tools, and ongoing training, and CE courses that one can take, just by signing up on line and attending for free! My personal experience with CBRB is one of team, where I can reach out to more experienced associates, who are more than happy to help and share knowledge with us new ones. I see and hear the recruitment calls come to some of our experienced agents, they always say, no, thanks for the call, but I’m happy here at CBRB. That just solidifies my belief that I made an excellent choice to hang my license here! Mark Warkentin, Independent Sales Associate
As I reflect on my 4 years with Coldwell Banker I am happy to say that I absolutely made the right choice in choosing a brokerage. Being a doctor and business owner in the valley for 20+ years I had high expectations of what I was looking for in a company. Integrity was important, and Coldwell Banker has a stellar reputation in the real estate world. However, the North Scottsdale office in particular has deep ties to the community with their charitable contributions to local organizations, and this relationship makes them more than just another "real estate office." It lays the groundwork to building lasting relationships with our clients. From an educational standpoint, Coldwell Banker gives the realtor so many resources to use whether it be for the first time agent breaking into the market or a seasoned agent looking to sharpen his or her skills. The tools available to us as agents are vast and aid in our ability to succeed as agents. However, even with all of this information and support, the business can be very harsh and cut throat. This is not the case at the Carefree office. There is a sense of teamwork at this office that I have not seen anyplace else that I have visited...(even other Coldwell Banker offices) Other agents are always willing to lend a hand or help out their fellow agents. Sandi as a broker is truly the best! She is always available to help in any way she can whether it is for advice or to cover in an emergency. She leads with a quiet confidence and a genuine love for her agents and her staff. It is that sincerity that separates her and the Carefree office from others in the community. I am fortunate to be able to be a part of this office and this company. As I grow my business, this is the company that I choose to align myself with. If you decide to do the same, you won't be disappointed. Cori Bender, Independent Sales Associate
