About Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate Co.

Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate (CBSREC) brings a market-leading combination of resources to each property transaction that is both unique and invaluable, providing sales leadership, marketing structure, depth of knowledge, 65 years of experience, and the ability to make things happen.

Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate has been the number-one real estate company across the Florida Keys since 2004 due to:


We are a 65-year old company with a strong heritage, a long-term view and commitment to the real estate business. No other real estate company has been around for nearly as long.

Market Share

Our market share for sales sides exceeds the number-two company by 395 percent and the number-three company by 457 percent.*


$687 million sales volume for 2019 is nearly 2.5 times that of the second-ranking company.*

We have been the #1 company for listings and sales across the Keys since 2004 due to our Every Day Until It is Sold marketing program. 

We’re ranked 13th among 285 Coldwell Banker affiliate companies in the southern region and 3rd among 44 affiliate companies in Florida.

We had four times more listings than the second-ranking company.*

Luxury property listings and sales

Coldwell Banker Schmitt’s Luxury Island Properties program continues to dominate the high end of the Florida Keys real estate market, selling 2.4 times more properties valued over $1MM and 39 percent more valued over $2MM than the number-two company. Additionally, we sold 2.2 times more properties valued over $1MM that we listed than the number-two company did of its own listings.*  We have led the Florida Keys market in luxury property sales every year since 2005.

Agent Productivity

Our Realtors average 2.2 times more sales sides than the average for all other agents Keys-wide.*

We have more agents in the Top 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100 of the nearly 1,200 agents Keys wide than the next eight companies combined.*

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.
