Colbert Coldwell, founder
The company has about 3000 offices in almost 50 countries and territories.
After the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fires, Colbert Coldwell and two partners formed Tucker, Lynch and Coldwell on August 27, 1906. Benjamin Arthur Banker joined the firm as a salesman in 1913, and became a partner in 1914. The company was renamed Coldwell Banker in the same year. Banker and Coldwell remained active in the company throughout their lives.
In November 2005 the company, one of its agents and one of its lawyers were defendants in a lawsuit filed in Middlesex Superior Court, which alleged that Coldwell Banker and the agent hid information from a buyer on serious defects in a property. On December 13, 2011, the Appeals Court affirmed the whole fee award and ordered Coldwell Banker to pay a total of $872,000 in damages and costs.
