We are so honored to receive the Large Business of the Year Award this past Saturday from the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce! The Chamber of Commerce awards this honor to the “company that balances business success with a dedication to improving the community’s quality of life.” We’ve been proud to be actively involved in the Fredericksburg community since 1977 when our founder, Kevin Breen, started his real estate business. In 1982, he opened the first Coldwell Banker franchise in Virginia and we’ve been the area’s premier real estate company ever since! With our acquisition of the Coldwell Banker Carriage House office in Downtown Fredericksburg this January, we’ll continue to be the Fredericksburg area’s best source for real estate knowledge.
At Coldwell Banker Elite, we know that people make a community – not land or buildings or leases or franchises. We’re committed to giving back to our wonderful community by supporting multiple local charities. We raise $20,000 annually for the Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity, host fundraisers and sponsor adoptions for the Fredericksburg Regional SPCA, support the Rappahannock Big Brothers and Big Sisters program as well as sponsoring a lecture in the UMW Great Lives Series. For over 20 years, we’ve sponsored the Coldwell Banker Elite Grand Prix, a series of ten sporting events in which more than 4,000 athletes compete each year to raise cash for various charities. Aside from fundraising and sponsorships, we also have plenty of agents, staff, and brokers who are personally volunteer for each of these charitable causes. We’re here to stay, and that means helping make life a little better for our neighbors.
Thank you to the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce for recognizing us as the Large Business of the Year! We truly appreciate all of our wonderful clients, friends, business partners and agents who make it easy to love our jobs!
