Coldwell Banker Real Estate Unveils 30 Under 30

The list recognizes Coldwell Banker-affiliated real estate professionals for their achievements in sales, philanthropy and leadership

MADISON, N.J. (July 17, 2019) – Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC today unveiled its annual list of top affiliated real estate professionals under the age of 30 who have achieved success in sales, philanthropy and leadership. The Coldwell Banker® 30 Under 30 were chosen from the brand’s network of over 92,000 independent real estate professionals affiliated with approximately 3,100 offices in 44 countries and territories. This group of real estate professionals follows in the footsteps of founders Colbert Coldwell and Arthur Banker, who started their company at 24 and 28 years old, respectively.

“During this momentous year in the industry, especially for Coldwell Banker as we rebrand, I am immensely proud that these 30 young professionals are committed to furthering the message we have reaffirmed in our mission statement – to leave your mark,” said Charlie Young, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “These 30 honorees embody the core values that are at the heart of the Coldwell Banker network: home, awesomeness, ingenuity and excellence.”

The list includes affiliated real estate agents, managers and key staff members. Some of the honorees include:

• Sarah Cadiz, Coldwell Banker Premier Realty – Las Vegas, Nevada. Cadiz is a 29-year-old affiliated agent with Coldwell Banker Premier Realty. In 2018, she was awarded Rookie of the Year from her brokerage and achieved International President’s Circle, an elite group of the top 5% of all active agents in the entire Las Vegas valley. In 2019, she was also announced as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Realtors in Clark County. She volunteers with multiple charities – the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life and The Animal Foundation.

• Jordan Collier, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage – Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Collier is a 27-year-old agent in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She has been passionate about real estate ever since she was a child when she would record video tours of her own home. Today, she stands out from her competitors by utilizing social media to post new listings, closing day pictures, industry news and local happenings. Animals are a huge part of her life and she volunteers for Charlie’s Crusader’s Pet Rescue, which rescues and rehomes animals coming mostly from high-kill shelters. She also volunteers with the Ronald McDonald House of Charities.

• Jamie Cronin, Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, Mokena, Illinois. Cronin is a 26-year-old managing broker who began her career as a real estate agent at 21. She realized her drive and passion for real estate lies within management after taking on an opportunity to pilot a Marketing Specialist Program in the Chicago region. She loves that the brand’s tools and offerings allow her to support and train affiliated agents on a daily basis. Giving back to the community is an extremely important aspect of her life – she actively volunteers for the Coldwell Banker Homes for Dogs Project and is heavily involved with Special Spaces, a program that provides children with life-altering or terminal illnesses renovated bedrooms to help brighten their lives or make day-to-day life a little easier.

• Xiaoyun Du, Coldwell Banker United Arab Emirates. This 27-year-old business development manager joined the brand in 2016 after moving to Dubai from China to pursue new opportunities. She found her new path challenging, so she began by studying the market and learning about the different emerging opportunities in the city. She also started blogging in Chinese about life in Dubai and as an affiliated Coldwell Banker agent. This led to connections with many international clients looking for investment opportunities. By focusing her marketing efforts on the Coldwell Banker brand, history, scale and reputation, her international clients felt a level of comfort and it’s garnered her many leads – and the International President’s Elite designation, given to an elite group of the top 3% of Coldwell Banker agents in 2018.

• Katie Grizzel Hanson, Coldwell Banker Schmidt, Realtors, Traverse City, Michigan. This 28-year-old was named Schmidt Rookie of the Year in 2016. This past year, Hanson was recognized as a member of the International Diamond Society, given to the top 10% who achieved at least $165,000 in AGC or sold at least 25 units. She is heavily involved with Blessings in a Backpack, which provides weekend meals for children in need. After losing her brother in 2017 to addiction, she worked with local students to make a documentary that looks at addiction from multiple perspectives. She also organized “Grizzel’s Game,” a hockey fundraiser that raised over $25,000 for Addiction Treatment Services in Traverse City.
