Wow, Our local company Tomlinson in Spokane WA became part of Coldwell Banker on Wednesday. No we are Coldwell Banker Tomlinson. It feels really good , but our colors have changed which feels a little different! Anyone experienced this type of thing before? Would love to hear your thoughts. For me it's all good! There are no limits!

Hi Barb ~ I remember getting the word that our company had been bought by Big Blue.  The moving men were at my apartment moving me to my new condo and I called in to my voicemail. Very unsettling at the time.

It was also odd because we were the number one office in the city and were being bought by the company with the number two office. 

It's been fine over the years (this was seven or eight years ago) but still weirds me out a bit when I see our sign.  It wasn't what I signed up for when I chose the office I work for.  We still have the two offices in town and in many ways have maintained our identity while capitalizing on the benefits of the merger.

Best of luck! Exciting times.

Yes it was a surprise and it sounds like thats how Brokerages like to handle those kinds of things! It was like well we are having a company wide meeting next week on Wed. then on Wed we walked into the room with Blue and white balloons instead of our green colors and listened to a presentation and that was that! It is sort of exciting though. I just was curious if others experienced it and how it felt. Thanks so much for sharing. BarbC
