At Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors, we have dedicated ourselves to helping others move. Whether it’s across the country or across the street, our agents assist families every single day in all aspects of moving. But what happens when you ask over 60 real estate agents to pack up and move across town? Well, this year, we found out the answer!
It’s been over two months since the grand opening of our newest location, the Coldwell Banker Building at Yankee Centre and the excitement
Though the decision to merge our Centerville and Dayton Mall offices into a new location was made long ago, it seems like just yesterday we were announcing the big change to our agents. Each former office met individually with Managing Partner, Ron Sweeny, for the announcement, where he explained that in September each office would relocate to a new building.
Located in the former Galleria building on Yankee Street in Washington Township, the new office houses up to 75 agents and is the home of the Coldwell Banker Heritage Global Luxury brand. Offering an upgraded, modern facility, the new space is equipped with a flexible layout and mixture of workstations including, private, semi-private, and drop-in offices.
On September 5th, all agents were welcomed into the building where their workspaces awaited, and the unpacking process began. You could feel the excitement and energy as our agents settled into their new home. Each area of the new office was thoughtfully designed by a team that included our own directors. Some of the more notable spaces are the agent lounge (a modern café with flat screen TV and gas fireplace, where agents could pop in with their laptops for a cup of coffee), the closing room (designed to ensure comfort and professionalism at the end of each transaction), the drop-in offices (available for any agent in the company and the perfect space to meet clients), and the sign shop (an organized space for our agents to store for sale signs).
While all were sad to leave offices that served our company dutifully for so many years, there was no denying the WOW factor and efficiency of the brand-new space-a space that will truly meet the needs of our agents for the next 20-30 years.
We kicked off the opening of the new office with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and party, just a week after moving in. It was a rainy Wednesday morning, but we were happy to have such a great turnout from our agents, the media, and our community partnerships and relationships. After cutting the ribbon, all guests were invited for lunch and office tours.
And though two months later, our agents are back on their schedules, we are still giving tours to family, friends, and clients. Creating a space our agents take pride in has been one of the best results of this transition. And while it’s safe to say that at Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors, we prefer to HELP others move rather than conduct a move ourselves, we know that the hard work has paid off in a way that better serves our agents and allows us the grow as a company. We are excited about the opportunities this change has afforded us.
