“Listing and selling for nearly 20 years, the absolute best part of my job is helping so many people with their real estate journey. I love working with people and it starts from the top down. I feel listened to and encouraged from the owners of this company down to my office manager and real estate co-workers. The team atmosphere here is the best. My clients trust me and it’s awesome knowing that I am backed by a company that I can trust.”

Jill Dickson
“I dedicate valuable time and countless resources toward my business. I love that our company prides itself on staying ahead of the technology curve. Real estate is constantly moving and changing. To have a forward-thinking, cutting edge approach gets us out in more places, bringing more buyers and sellers together faster. I can work anytime, anywhere and be confident that the tools we have are effectively managing and growing my business.”

Lori Bonarek
“I switched to Coldwell Banker in 2011 because I knew my long term goals could not be met where I was. I requested to meet with Ed Prodehl and when I did I knew that CB was the place I belonged. My very first year at CB was the most successful since I started in real estate in 2004 and I have felt at home since the day I joined the family.”
