Every Home Has a Story

And the only place a seller can tell their story is on coldwellbanker.com

When you look at the life of your home, whether you have been there for 10 months or 50 years, those walls are filled with stories. Memories are embedded within the hardwood floors. Laughter can be heard in the doorways. And tears leave their mark in the entryway.

Our homes are an extension of who we are and it is where the greater story of our lives is written. In our latest TV commercial, called “Catch,” Coldwell Banker Real Estate is sharing one such story of home and how it shapes the person we become. And our story begins in the backyard with a simple game of catch.

I know some of my most vivid memories of home are not necessarily within the confines of the four walls where I ate and slept, but rather the outdoors. Wiffle ball tournaments in the backyard, playing epic games of HORSE in the driveway, water gun fights on the deck, and of course playing catch with my dad in the front yard. While these memories are my own I’m sure many of you reading this had it remind you of your own memories of home.

Those memories that people can relate to are the reason why we allow home sellers to share their stories on coldwellbanker.com through words, photos and videos. Because who knows the story a home can tell better than the ones who lived there? By working with a Coldwell Banker agent a seller can allow potential buyers to envision how their own memories can be made in that home through experiencing what the seller has to share.

Take a look at the ad below and see how we’re sharing one simple story that many can relate to and then visit coldwellbanker.com/stories to find other tales of home and learn how you can tell yours when you’re ready to sell only at coldwellbanker.com.

    David – amazing post. I too had epic games of HORSE under
    the single lightbulb glimmering from the garage. We’d play until are hands were
    black and our knees were bloodied. The whiffle ball games that went 20+ innings
    and still weren’t decided by bedtime. The hide & seek games that were so
    big one yard wasn’t big enough – we often had to make the city block the
    “boundary.” Tossing the football or frisbee across the road – only
    stopping when a car rolled by.

    Ah yes, what memories of playing in the yard. Mom still
    lives in the house we grew up in and every time I go visit or drive by, it
    looks littler and littler yet the memories get bigger and bigger.

    Thanks David. I think I’ll call Mom to say hello…and
    maybe my brothers to see when the next game is.

      Love the sentiment Sean. The hide & seek games that spanned multiple yards is something I had completely forgotten about so thanks for that trip down memory lane! I didn’t add it in the post but my favorite outdoor game was one I invented with my dad called “diving catches.” I would stand on one side of the front yard and my dad would throw it to the opposite side and I’d have to run and dive to try and make the catch. So many grass stains and scrapes but I loved it!
