About Us

Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Inc.

We are a locally owned, second-generation family business. For over 40 years we have operated with uncompromising values designed to deliver the best customer service. Statements like this are easy to make but sometimes hard to demonstrate. For us, our clients confirm the statement, in that nearly 70% of the company’s business comes from repeat and referral business.

The biggest driver of that success is our people. The company has hired only the best agents who share a dedicated vision to serve the best interests of our clients. We have assembled the greatest concentration of experienced talent anywhere. We work collectively to provide you with market information that will support your goals.

Our agents are a strong reflection of our local ties: they are passionate about the region they choose to call home and it shows in their market knowledge. Our agents complete nearly twice as many sales as other local agents. For you, this means a more practiced, committed approach to serving your needs.

You have our commitment that we will work diligently to provide a “Client 1st” approach. That dedication to service has brought the following distinctions:

  • Top 500 U.S. Brokers (Real Trends & national relocation magazines)
  • Top 100 of more than 1,500 Coldwell Banker franchises worldwide
  • Top Company (out of more than 300 companies) in Thurston County Home Sales

Our History

By the early 1980s, Evergreen Olympic Realty was already the leader in real estate sales in the South Sound. What we saw then was an area that was growing in national importance. An unprecedented number of people were moving to the Northwest.

In this new landscape we determined that a strategic alliance with the nation’s top real estate brand would benefit our clients. In 1982 the company became Washington State’s third Coldwell Banker franchise. After an exhaustive review of national real estate franchises, we selected Coldwell Banker for two simple reasons.

First, the company’s values matched our own high standards. Since 1906, Coldwell Banker’s philosophy has been “The client’s best interest must be the guiding force behind all services.”

The “Client 1st” perspective grew from the events following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, when an appalled Colbert Coldwell saw some of his real estate contemporaries take advantage of the tragedy by acquiring property from vulnerable sellers at unfair prices.

Coldwell dedicated himself to providing an honest and knowledgeable alternative, and his mission was furthered in 1914 when Benjamin Banker became a partner. Together they built an organization based on the “Client 1st” philosophy. It is that value that attracted us to the franchise.

Second, Coldwell Banker was and remains the most recognized and respected of the national real estate firms. Coldwell Banker’s unmatched brand recognition combined with our top local presence ensures that our clients have best service offerings to market and manage their real estate needs.

And more than a quarter century later, our decision to franchise is reconfirmed every day. With over 3,000 people moving to Thurston County every year, it has simply never been more important to have both local and national exposure.
