Technology

CBexchange
Available exclusively to Coldwell Banker Brokers and Sales Associates. CB Exchange is our intranet portal to all Coldwell Banker education, products and services, and the source for listing, selling, and prospecting tools, as well as electronic networking tools. In 2016 Coldwell Banker completely reimagined and built our new intranet from the ground up.  From the News Feed for all Coldwell Banker communication to the Springboard for easy access to all apps, this all-in-one connection to the world of Coldwell Banker Real Estate is unlike any other portal out there.

Zap
Coldwell Banker Zap is a single, integrated end to end solution to drive & grow your business. The Zap platform provides all of our agents branded websites, a customer relationship management (CRM) system, transaction management, and digital marketing in one easy-to-use website compatible on your PC, mobile phone, or tablet.  It has sleek consumer engagement on the front end, and powerful marketing and reporting tools on the back end. Pair that with the fact that it’s powered by the Coldwell Banker databases, and this tool is an industry game-changer.

CirclePix
Here at Coldwell Banker Preferred we have partnered with CirclePix to stay on the forefront of Social Media Marketing within Real Estate.  CirclePix provides our agents tools & services such as marketing their listings to a multitude of social media platforms, customized virtual tours and print media, and much more.  For more information please visit www.circlepix.com. 

eMarketing
With CB eMarketing, you will be able to manage your contacts, send branded eCards and eNewsletters and automate your marketing activities. Recently rebuilt from the ground up, it is now easier than ever to manage your contacts and create, send and optimize your email campaigns in one central location
.

CBx
The CBx application is a state of the art listing EXPERIENCE, and one of the ultimate conversation starters to help you get every listing. For the first time, agents will have access to BIG DATA, in real time, in a visual layout, and at their fingertips, to augment the already incredible “kitchen table” listing experience. CBx will go a long way in helping you beat the competition.

This new listing experience allows agents to engage sellers in a confident discussion about the listing price, the prospective buyers, where those buyers are coming from, and how to market to them.
