Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty started with Joel Faye Bennet and John Grover in 1981 as Trails West Realty. In April of 1985 Bennet and Grover affiliated with Coldwell Banker and by the end of the year achieved a 40% market share with 5.6% of the Associate Brokers in Santa Fe Association of Realtors. The company was sold in December 1994; ownership changed, but the company remained the same. Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty is currently owned by Mike and Theresa Nelson, who also own and manage Coldwell Banker Sudderth Nelson in Alamogordo, NM.
Coldwell Banker was founded in 1906 when Colbert Coldwell, a young real estate Sales Associate, observed families trying to piece their lives together following the disastrous San Francisco earthquake. Disapproving of Sales Associates who acquired property from vulnerable sellers and then resold it at huge profits, and seeing a need for honest, knowledgeable real estate professionals, he formed his own company. This new company was based on a revolutionary philosophy: the client’s best interest above all. In 1914, Benjamin Arthur Banker, another real estate professional, joined Colbert Coldwell as a full partner. Together, Coldwell and Banker forged a tradition of integrity, exceptional service and customer satisfaction that became the company’s hallmark. The company was far ahead of its time in its focus on customer service.
