What is PREVIEWS ?
In 1933, Coldwell Banker established the “Previews” brand, and became one of the leaders of Luxury Property in the real estate industry in the world. Currently we have a worldwide network of nearly 1,000 International offices located in 50 countries. Coldwell Banker Previews International has a distinguished clientele including some of the world’s foremost dignitaries, actors, musicians and sports figures. The Previews Marketing Program is recognized as one of the world’s finest marketing programs in promoting luxury properties to a global audience.
We have a 28% luxury market share nationwide–well over 200% more than our next closest competitor. Presently, Coldwell Banker Previews International represents the nation’s top four most expensive listings which are priced from *$85 million to $ 150 million. We handle an average of *$76.7 million in luxury home sales every day, and participated in 11,970 transaction sides of multi-million dollar homes in 2009. This equates to $22 billion in sales volume!
The downtown Naples 5th Avenue South office is an accredited Previews office. Many of the agents here at the 5th Avenue South office have gone through extensive, additional training to receive their Previews Luxury Home Specialist designation. Chip & I both have this designation. When Chip & I first learned that the company we previously worked for was being purchased by Coldwell Banker, we immediately purchased the domain name of NaplesPreviews in order to take full advantage of the luxury brand this name represents.
