Meet Pauline Bennett
As president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Pauline Bennett leads one of the Carolinas’ preeminent residential real estate companies. She is an accomplished and experienced leader, with a track record of recruiting top-producing agents and growing operations and market share. With 1,100 affiliated sales associates and 21 offices throughout North and South Carolina, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has the resources to assist all types of buyers and sellers in their real estate journeys.
Bennett, a former award-winning and top-producing sales associate herself, understands the support agents need to be successful. Her hard work as a sales associate paid off when Bennett was appointed the managing broker of the Sarasota Downtown office of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida — which, like the Carolinas company, is a subsidiary of NRT. Bennett consistently ranked among the top 20 Coldwell Banker® branch managers in NRT’s southeast region. She was named to the prestigious NRT President’s Council for Managers multiple years, and in 2011 was one of only 18 leaders from across the United States and Canada invited to participate in Coldwell Banker’s Regional Advisory Committee.
In October 2015, Bennett was promoted to her current role as president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Carolinas. With more than half of her 15 years of real estate experience in management roles with NRT, she has brought a new vision and energy to the Columbia marketplace. Supported by a dynamic group of branch managers, she is poised to take Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage to new heights and continue to raise the bar as a local real estate market leader. Bennett’s ability to communicate her vision for the company will allow Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage to maximize its potential in the Columbia market that has so much opportunity for growth.
