Jeff Culbertson — vice president, NRT Southwest Region, a subsidy of Realogy, which owns Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage — has been ranked one of the most powerful people in residential real estate in the Swanpoel Power 200. The Swanpoel Power 200 is an annual list of the 200 most powerful people — CEOs, thought leaders and senior executives — in residential real estate in North America.
Culbertson was among 33 Realogy executives and independent franchises affiliated with Realogy’s brands that were recognized on the list. Realogy, parent company to Coldwell Banker, had more individuals on the list than any other real estate company including three in the top 10 and six in the top 25.
Authors of the report, Stefan Swanpoel and Rob Hahn, said “Realogy is simply residential real estate’s most important company. Period.” The duo also cited Realogy’s recent acquisition of ZipRealty as one of its top acquisitions in recent years. “Jeff’s leadership and vision have made a tremendous difference in our growth at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Southwest Region,” said Jamie Duran, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage San Diego, Orange County and Desert companies. “He has created a success culture that is contagious.”
