Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty takes top honors for second consecutive year as Carmel's Best Real Estate Company

The real estate agents of Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty, located in Monterey County, were proud to once again be honored with the Golden Pine Cone Award as Carmel's Best Real Estate Company.

Recently, readers of the Carmel Pine Cone, one of the finest-small town newspapers in the country, were asked to vote for their favorite service providers in the real estate arena. This year's winner may bring a sense of deja vu, because for the second time in as many years, Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty was named "Best Real Estate Company."

(Excerpt from the Carmel Pine Cone, September 25, 2009) Perhaps it’s no surprise Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty is the Pine Cone readers’ favorite: With 140 agents, several of the local superstars of real estate sales, and 40 percent of the annual market share in Carmel, CBDMR is certainly the largest local firm.

But managing broker Rita Lewis knows that’s not all it takes: “We have a terrific team of very knowledgeable sales associates, and they really work hard to do a great job for their clients,” Lewis said. “That’s the name of the game.” She says the company frequently gets thank-you letters from clients, and that being part of a national real estate company has significant advantages. “We have an extensive network across the country ... a wonderful marketing department, an IT department and human resources — all those things agents in a smaller company wouldn’t have access to.”

And Lewis is optimistic about the future of the local real estate market. “Coastal property is limited and there are always people with money who want to live near the ocean."
