The Coldwell Banker Global Luxury program is specifically tailored for residences qualifying among the market's top 10 percent for price, style, amenities and landscaping. Each qualifying CBSREC agent completes the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury specialist course with continuing training. They must also have specific experience in listing and selling the finest residences, along with a superlative record for customer service prior to designation as a Previews International agent.  With our Keys-wide luxury real estate home expertise, reflected in our sales success, CBSREC Global Luxury agents can bring your listing to the direct attention of a substantial database of Keys luxury property buyers and prospects.

Our Every Day Until It’s Sold program integrates Internet (including the most visited real estate company site in The Keys), virtual tours, video and more, along with email, newspaper, magazine, direct mail and network marketing to spheres of influence, past customers, clients and a global audience to effectively expose your property to the market.

We believe our long-ago adoption of Single Agency as the preferred manner for working with sellers and buyers has been a significant factor in the market-leading success of our agents and is a clear differentiator for choosing a Coldwell Banker Schmitt agent to fully represent your interest when selling or buying real estate.

These points of difference pay off in measurable results and provide the foundation and guiding principles on which management, staff and agents rely in order to achieve ever-increasing levels of success for our buyers, our sellers, and themselves.
