Coldwell Banker Realty names Northern California president to new post

Jennifer Lind, who was hired as Coldwell Banker Realty’s Northern California president three years ago, is now the residential real estate brokerage’s new president of the West.

As regional president of the West for Coldwell Banker Realty, Lind will now oversee 11,197 agents across 133 sales offices in California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington, a company representative said. Combined, these offices brought in a total sales volume of more than $52 billion with 43,217 transactions in 2022.

In 2020, Lind was named president of Coldwell Banker Realty in Northern California, where she led daily operations while driving growth and retention of more than 50 sales offices and independent agents from Carmel to Tahoe, including San Francisco, Silicon Valley, North Bay and Sacramento.

She will remain in California, and Robert Burns, president of Coldwell Banker Bain in Washington and Oregon, and Mike James, regional vice president of Coldwell Banker Realty in Hawaii, will report to her.

Before joining Coldwell, Lind spent 16 years at John Scott Real Estate and a year and a half at Windermere Real Estate where she held executive roles.

New Coldwell Banker Realty CEO Kamini Lane, who took over in March, made the promotion as part of a number of new executives who will helm new regions in a national reorganization of the brokerage.

Other recent additions at Coldwell Banker Realty include The Swann Group, a five-person luxury team led by real estate broker Rachel Swann, which left Compass for Coldwell. In the last year, Coldwell Banker said it has recruited 209 agents from Compass.

Coldwell Banker placed No. 2 on the San Francisco Business Times’ 2023 list of Largest Bay Area Residential Real Estate Brokerages with a total Bay Area volume of $12.9 billion in 2022. Last year it tallied 9,272 property sales and had 1,895 licensed sales agents under its name, second only to Compass, according to Business Times research.
