CBC Enhances Long-Term Performance with Five New Affiliates

As 2021 got underway, there was a concerted effort among businesses to find new ways of energizing their brands. Commercial real estate was no exception to this initiative, and in a recent blog posting, Coldwell Banker Commercial shares that five brokerages in three different states joined the brand in the first half of 2021. 

Companies that affiliated with CBC include Coldwell Banker Commercial Alamo City in San Antonio, led by Leesa Rispoli; Coldwell Banker Commercial AMH in Farmingdale, NY, led by Tom Gallagher and Michael Litzner; Coldwell Banker Commercial Bartels Real Estate in Lakewood, WI, led by Adriane Bartels; Coldwell Banker Commercial Central Advisors in Houston, led by Michael Hernandez; and Coldwell Banker Commercial Custom Realty in Rochester, NY, led by Michael Liess. 

Dan Spiegel, managing director of CBC, said of the additions, “I am extremely proud to welcome these five new brokerages to the Coldwell Banker Commercial brand. I am confident Coldwell Banker Commercial will be the place where these businesses find long-term growth and success.” 

Many of the newly affiliated owners come to the CBC brand with decades of real estate experience and expertise in their markets. Some served their communities as independent brokerages and are now joining the CBC brand, while others made the leap to broker-ownership for the first time.  

Spiegel added, “I also believe this group of newly affiliated companies will enhance Coldwell Banker Commercial’s long-term performance and growth. It is our goal as a brand to continuously serve communities and professionals while adhering to our core values of Do Right, Win Together, Big Hearted and Ownership Mentality in an ever-increasingly competitive market.”
