Coldwell Banker Recognized by the Women's Choice Award

Design Trends

Women's Choice Award® recipients have earned the 2021 award for being recommended by 9 out of 10 customers.

by Athena Snow, Coldwell Banker Blue Matter

MADISON, N.J. (January 25, 2021)  In a national survey conducted by the Women's Choice Award, over 85% of the Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC's female customers who have had experience with the brand say they would recommend Coldwell Banker Real Estate to their friends and family. For the fourth year in a row, The Women's Choice Award has recognized Coldwell Banker for its exceptional customer recommendation rating, earning the brand the coveted 2021 Women's Choice Award®

The exclusive set of products and services that earn the award have the honor of touting the Women's Choice Award designation, honoring their achievement as having 9 out of 10 of their female customers highly recommend them. As recommendation ratings are the pinnacle for determining true brand loyalty and love, the Women's Choice Award is a powerful indicator of a brand's commitment to their customers. The Women's Choice Award seal also represents Coldwell Banker's commitment to empowering women to make the best consumer choices for themselves and their families.

The Women's Choice Award is a significant and meaningful accomplishment in real estate because women are at the heart of most transactions. Women make or influence 91% of home-buying decisions and make up two-thirds of all real estate agents. Coldwell Banker has incorporated many diversity and inclusion programs committed to the advancement of women leadership efforts, including the CB Women initiative and What Moves Her campaign, that are dedicated to making sure women are provided with opportunities for career growth.

"At Coldwell Banker, we value women in real estate. I am beyond proud to work for a brand that empowers women to take on leadership roles and strives to make the industry better. Through our work with our Inclusive Ownership program and What Moves Her initiative, we are continuously exploring new ways to support leadership development, promote shared values, and provide resources for enhancing leadership tools and capabilities for women in the industry."
 Liz Gehringer, chief operating officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate

 "Today's marketplace is more cluttered than ever, yet women have less time than ever to sift through the saturated online options and store shelves. And with women on a constant hunt to identify the best brands for herself and her family, the Women's Choice Award serves as a trusted endorsement and visual beacon of empowerment, simplifying her choices. When consumers see that other women recommend a brand, through the Women's Choice Award seal, it provides an unparalleled level of trust and validation, putting her mind at ease- and that's priceless."
 Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women's Choice Award

New COVID-19 Guidelines Issued for Washington State



Content adapted from guidance posted by Washington Association of Realtors®

On Sunday, November 15th, 2020, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee announced wide ranging restrictions in an attempt to curb rising COVID-19 cases.  These restrictions became active on Monday, November 16th and will be in place for four weeks, through Monday, December 14th. 

Some of these restrictions will impact residential and commercial real estate operations:

  • All real estate open houses are suspended.

  • Private home showings are still permitted by appointment with no more than 5 people, in addition to the broker, on site with strict social distancing.

  • Face coverings are required to be worn at all times by real estate brokers, their clients, and industry partners (e.g. appraisers, inspectors, photographers, stagers, etc.). Brokers may not provide services to any client who does not wear a face covering.


We take our responsibility to the communities we serve and our duty to public health seriously.  We are committed to upholding the highest standard in service and safety, and will continue to do so remotely or virtually where necessary.

Open Houses Now Permitted In Spokane County



Original article posted by Washington Association of Realtors

On October 6th, the Governor announced that limited open houses are now permitted in Phase 1.5, Phase 2, and Phase 3 counties.  Spokane County is currently in Phase 2 of Washington's "Safe Start" Recovery Plan.  With that, measures must be taken to ensure that open houses are done safely under required protocols.

In order to hold an open house, the firm and broker must take measures to ensure that occupancy is restricted to the gathering size permitted by the current county phase and all other required protocols are followed (face coverings, social distancing, sanitation, etc.)

For Phase 2 counties - no more than five (5) people, in addition to the broker, may be in the property at any one time.

Brokers must strictly adhere to the occupancy restrictions for open houses, including the following:

  • Post signs at the property (e.g. on the open house signs, at the front door, inside the property etc.) alerting the public to the occupancy restriction and reminding the public to wear face coverings and social distance.
  • Brokers need to carefully monitor the number of persons on site at any one time and not admit more than the allowed number of persons into the property.
  • Brokers need to constantly monitor the front door and potentially lock the door from time to time to prohibit additional persons from entering.
  • Firms may consider assigning two brokers to an open house – one to stand outside and monitor the number of persons admitted to the property, and the other to be inside the property.
  • Brokers must enforce the face covering requirement.
  • Persons waiting to enter the property must social distance and wear face coverings.
  • Clean and disinfect all surfaces, before and after the open house, and have sanitizer placed around the property.
  • Because contact tracing in the event of an outbreak is important, brokers should maintain contact information for all attending an open house.
