Cartus Corporation, a leading provider of employee relocation solutions, announced that Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in San Francisco and San Jose were presented the Cartus Five Star Award, which recognizes brokers who have met or exceeded their individual objectives for outgoing broker-to-broker referral closings during the calendar year.

The announcement was made at the annual Cartus Broker Network International Conference March 8-11, 2016, at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Cartus is a worldwide leader in employee relocation solutions.

“Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Bay Area put extraordinary effort toward not only achieving but also exceeding their objectives for outgoing broker-to-broker referral closings in 2015. This speaks volumes about why our brokers are such highly valued partners – their commitment to our mutual success,” said Gerald Pearce, Cartus executive vice president, Broker Services and Affinity Services. “I’m proud to award this honor to Coldwell Banker and look forward to our continued joint success in the future.”

“We are extremely happy to join the list of Cartus Broker Network members from around the country who have contributed to the broker-to-broker-referral results,” said Mike James, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Bay Area. “Our entire team has worked hard to achieve this goal, and I thank all of them for their ongoing efforts.”

In addition to the awards ceremony, the event included interactive workshops, roundtable and panel discussions, and executive presentations. Cartus Broker Network participants networked with other industry professionals and exchanged information and ideas regarding team building, revenue generation, retention, new business strategies, and increasing customer service—all essential elements for continued success.
