Christmas is Our Favorite Time of Year!

Here at Coldwell Banker Spinks Brown Durand Realtors, we simply love Christmas. Whether we are decorating the office, or having a Christmas luncheon or being entertained by Benji the Elf, we are having fun.

I can scarcely imagine a better collection of people to work with other than our CBSBD agents and staff.

As we bring 2014 to a close, we reflect on the bittersweet year it has been. While we still mourn the loss of Roy (especially today with our first company gathering without him), we do celebrate the addition of 5 new agents in 2014.

We look forward to 2015 in hopes that it will be a year of prosperity and success company-wide that will do nothing but bring honor to Roy and his legacy.
