The Van Ness office of Coldwell Banker Northern California is the company’s premier office in the Bay Area. In fact, for each of the last 10 years it has ranked in the top three for highest volume of Coldwell Banker’s over 1200 nationwide offices. TRI Coldwell Banker is the only San Francisco residential sales office to top $1 billion in sales each year.
Also known as TRI Coldwell Banker, the Van Ness office finds its unique roots in TRI Real Estate, a company formed in the early 1980’s by a collection of broker/owners. The office evolved over time to its present size of 100 agents. In the early nineties the residential and commercial business components of the original company were split and the residential division was sold to Prudential, and then again a few years later to Jon Douglas. Coldwell Banker acquired Jon Douglas and the Van Ness office in September 1997, and the office has consistently performed at the highest level of the company’s 80 Northern California offices. The office has a commercial group, a rental department, and a new construction group which serves SOMA and other developing areas of the City.
Located on Van Ness at Sacramento Street, the office effectively serves all districts of the City. In the northern quadrant (Pacific and Presidio Heights, Russian, Telegraph and Nob Hills, the Marina, Cow Hollow, and the Lake Street corridor to Sea Cliff) the Van Ness office’s market share of million dollar homes and condominiums dominates the competition year after year.
The office’s preeminent success is attributable to a number of components. “Synergy” is one. The average tenure in the business for a Van Ness office agent is over twenty years. That type of experience is accompanied with finely honed professionalism, knowledge, skill, integrity, credibility and a highly regarded clientele. The interaction of 100 agents with such attributes generates an exciting, successful environment.
“Network” is another word that defines the office’s success. The large network of Coldwell Banker offices from San Diego to Seattle and from San Francisco to New York – in particular “Previews Specialists” – connects agents and clients in an unparalleled fashion.
