Fresh data from the Move MeterSM on the refreshed coldwellbanker.com shows trends and insights into where Americans are dreaming of moving, giving sellers an informative, clear picture about the potential of listing their homes. In fact, 82% of all Move Meter℠ searches to date were looking to move out of state. The Move Meter℠ compares cost of living city by city. It was created by Coldwell Banker Real Estate as part of a suite of industry exclusive tools to allow consumers to dream of home and guide them to their new destination. In addition to the Move Meter, Coldwell Banker has created the ultimate destination for home sellers at coldwellbanker.com, with industry exclusive tools like the CB Estimate℠, which provides a home value estimate, and a remarkable new Seller's Assurance Program. Americans are on the Move (Meter) Going the distance : The average Move Meter℠ search covered 1,015 average miles (about the distance of New York to Miami). Eighty-two percent (82%) of all Move Meter℠ searches were looking to move out of state. On the flip side, Massachusetts had the greatest proportion of searchers considering staying in-state, with 40% of all searches from Massachusetts looking to stay loyal to the Commonwealth. Only about 13% of all searches were looking within a driving distance of 100-miles from their origin destination with the highest proportion of moves being somewhere between 500 to 1,500 miles away (42%). Chasing Sunshine : While Midwesterners and Northeasterners are looking for warmer temps in the Southeast (38% vs 46%), Southeasterners, Southwesterners and Westerners all had higher likelihoods of staying local to their respective regions. Americans are dreaming of moving – but where to? Southern Charm: Austin, Texas, topped the chart as the most searched destination to move to, and had 46% more searches than the next closest destination. The top locale dreaming about moving to Austin is San Diego, California. So how does the move stack up? According to the Move Meter℠, the move from San Diego to Austin could be a smart move if you value job market strength. California Dreamin' : 20% of searches from California were looking to stay in the Golden State. The top in-state searches looking to move somewhere else within California were from San Diego, San Francisco and Bakersfield. And for those looking outside of California, where were they dreaming about? Californians are looking to Texas, Florida, Tennessee and Washington overall, with Austin, Dallas, Seattle and Nashville having the greatest move appeal outside of California. Burnin' Up for Florida: The #1 state topping the Move Meter℠ interest index was Florida with one out of seven of all Move Meter℠ searches looking to move to the Sunshine State. The top states looking to soak up the Florida sun included New Jersey, California, New York, Illinois, Ohio and Massachusetts. Where in Florida are these searchers looking? Sarasota, Miami, Naples, and Tampa were the most popular searched cities. Floridians don't disagree – they, too, see the appeal, as they were one of the top states searching for destinations within the state as well, with a quarter of Floridian searches looking to stay in-state. The other top states Floridians are searching was North Carolina and Tennessee.

CENTURY 21® Empowering Latinas Program Teams Up with Hispanic Heritage Foundation and Gaby Natale to Create Real Estate Career Opportunities for Latinas Nationwide Century 21 Previous Item Next Item Enhanced program to award 121 education stipends to Latina entrepreneurs across the U.S. Submission Period March 1 – April 30 Emmy® award-winning journalist, motivational speaker, and author Gaby Natale, tapped as campaign’s spokesperson and will lead brand’s first-ever virtual “IMPARABLES” empowerment event on March 9th MADISON, N.J., March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Century 21 Real Estate LLC, the industry franchise leader and innovator for more than 50 years, announced today that in collaboration with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation , the brand will be expanding its successful CENTURY 21® Empowering Latinas Program in 2022 with a national call-to-entry providing critical educational opportunities including financial support for 121 Latina entrepreneurs seeking to obtain a real estate license. Launched in 2018 as a market-focused campaign, the breakthrough program has since enabled deserving women across Florida, California and Texas to pursue careers in real estate. The Empowering Latinas program has also supported the work of philanthropic organizations such as the Eva Longoria Foundation and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation in their efforts to empower the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. “HHF is thrilled to partner once again with the CENTURY 21 brand in an effort to continue diversifying the access to financial education and job opportunities in real estate across America through the CENTURY 21® Empowering Latinas Program,” said Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of HHF. “It’s even more exciting to be work with a friend of mine and our organization, Gaby Natale as spokesperson of the national campaign.” “According to the Urban Institute, over the next 20 years, it is projected that Latinos will account for 70 percent of new homeownership growth in the U.S.*, so it is more important than ever that our industry of real estate professionals represent the same level of diversity as those communities we are serving in markets across the country,” said Mike Miedler, president and CEO, Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “It is crucial that we not only open the door for more diverse candidates to enter our industry, but that we provide them with the critical financial, educational and business resources and support to set them on the path to real estate success. We are excited to bring the Empowering Latinas program to the next level as we identify the most promising Latina entrepreneurs across the country.” As part of the brand’s efforts to further advance equity and representation within the real estate profession, Century 21 Real Estate will host its first virtual empowerment event, “IMPARABLES: An Empowering Latinas Event”, focused on inspiring the next generation of real estate leaders. Available to attendees nationwide, the event will be hosted by 3-time Emmy award winning journalist, bestselling author of “The Virtuous Circle” , motivational speaker, and entrepreneur, Gaby Natale , and will feature Latina real estate industry leaders sharing experiences from their own journeys within the industry as well as best practices for achieving success as a real estate professional. Free event registration is available at century21empoweringlatinas.splashthat.com/ . “As someone who went from being unemployed to running a profitable business, and becoming a bestselling author, I know how life can change dramatically for the better when you find the right tribe and tools,” said Natale. “Latinas are among the most resilient and entrepreneurial people of our time, but not every Hispanic woman has access to the tools and education they need to achieve financial freedom and create generational wealth. That’s why I am thrilled to partner with the CENTURY 21® Empowering Latinas program as we help put more Latinas on the path towards success.” “Receiving the Empowering Latinas award was a pivotal moment in my life and career,” said Jeanette Avellaneda, CENTURY 21 Garlington & Associates affiliated agent and 2018 Empowering Latinas Program honoree. “At the time I was an unemployed mother of four who had just gotten divorced and was in danger of being evicted from our apartment. I could never have imagined how applying for this program would change our lives forever. With the support of the CENTURY 21 brand, I was able to start a fulfilling career that allowed me to purchase my family’s first home, give my daughter her dream Quinceañera and partake in all the graduation activities for my son. Beyond the financial security, this career has pushed me out of my comfort zone and given me the opportunity to help my fellow Latinos who otherwise feel they would never be able to reach their dreams of homeownership.” Latinas interested in applying for the educational stipend can do so online at C21EmpoweringLatinas.com starting March 1 through April 30, 2022. In order to qualify for the Empowering Latinas program, applicants must be at least 18 years old, be of Hispanic heritage, have a high school degree or GED, and be a US citizen, or legal resident of the United States. Please visit the Empowering Latinas website for additional program details and application forms. *Source: Decennial census data and Urban Institute projections. https://www.urban.org/urban-wire/number-hispanic-households-will-skyrocket-2040-how-can-housing-industry-support-their-needs About Century 21 Real Estate LLC: The approximately 148,000 independent sales professionals in approximately 14,250 offices spanning 85 countries and territories in the CENTURY 21® System live their mission every day: to defy mediocrity and deliver extraordinary experiences.

- CORCORAN EXPANDS ITS FLORIDA FOOTPRINT TO SARASOTA AND ST. PETERSBURG
CORCORAN EXPANDS ITS FLORIDA FOOTPRINT TO SARASOTA AND ST. PETERSBURG Corcoran Previous Item Next Item Firm formerly known as Dwell Real Estate becomes Corcoran Dwellings NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Corcoran Group, LLC today announced its continued expansion in Florida by welcoming its newest affiliate in Sarasota and St. Petersburg, Corcoran Dwellings, led by Liane Jamason and Marc Rasmussen. The announcement, made by Pamela Liebman, President and CEO of The Corcoran Group, is the firm’s first affiliate launch of the new year. From the broad beaches of its barrier islands to the vibrant cultural landscape of its downtown core, Sarasota offers an unparalleled array of opportunities for residents and visitors alike. Just recently, U.S. News and World Report named Sarasota as the best place to retire in 2022. Comparably, St. Petersburg is the 5th largest city in Florida known for its youthful atmosphere, historic homes, and a strong focus on community. ‘St. Pete’, as it’s called among locals, has also been nicknamed the Sunshine City – thanks in part to a Guinness World Record it holds for the longest stretch of sunshine in the country. For all of this and more, both areas are an ideal fit for Corcoran’s ever-expanding Florida presence, one of the firm’s two home states through brokerage-owned operations. “I couldn’t be happier to kick off this year by welcoming another fantastic firm to grow our presence in Florida – a place near and dear to so many of us at Corcoran,” said Liebman. “Sarasota and St. Pete have so much to offer, and now we get to offer our inimitable brand and expertise to clients in the region. Liane and Marc have built something really special together, and I’m pleased that they’re continuing that work as Corcoran Dwellings.” Established in 2011, the firm formerly known as Dwell Real Estate was founded in Sarasota by Marc Rasmussen, a veteran Realtor® who had a goal of building a boutique experience for buyers and sellers alike. After successfully recruiting numerous top-of-the-line agents, the firm later opened its second office in late 2016, in St. Petersburg. Three years later, Marc then joined forces with Liane Jamason, who to date has had more than $147 million in lifetime sales. Together, they’ve crafted an environment based around the utmost agent support and professionalism – one that has resulted in them setting several sales price records in the region. And just last March, Liane closed on the sale of former Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell’s home. “We prioritize each client by making them feel like they’re our only client with a focus on superior market knowledge, thorough client communication and ethical client advocacy,” said Marc Rasmussen, founder and co-owner of Corcoran Dwellings. “We also always want to give our affiliated agents the best resources to take their business to the next level and we prioritize working with like-minded individuals. With a focus on lead generation and technology, our goals align perfectly with the Corcoran brand, and we look forward to being part of the broader Corcoran family.” About The Corcoran Group The Corcoran Group has been a leading residential real estate brand for nearly 50 years. Through its New York City, Hamptons, and South Florida brokerages, along with its rapidly growing affiliate network, the firm is home to more than 150 offices and more than 5,500 independent salespersons in key urban, suburban, and resort markets nationwide. Corcoran agents earn and keep their clients’ trust with an unwavering commitment to white-glove service, expertise, and integrity. In every market served, Corcoran helps you find the home that’s just right for you. The Corcoran® brand comprises both offices owned by a subsidiary of Realogy Brokerage Group LLC and franchised offices, which are independently owned and operated.
