"I would like to say that our Folsom Coldwell Banker office is a delight to work in. Our office administrator, Peggy, is devoted to helping all the agents succeed in their business. She is knowledgeable & very patient with us. If we need guidance with correctly completing documents, she is always there to assist and explain procedures. Peggy will always go the extra mile. Heather is our Marketing Coordinator & is also a huge support to our team of agents. Her knowledge of the CB NRT Gateway software has been invaluable. She encourages us all to use the NRT tools to help increase our business. Whenever any of us need assistance with navigating the site, she is always there to help guide us through the process. She offers training classes/handouts to help us remember the steps and procedures. Our managing broker, John Pope has been a wealth of information.

"Close your eyes for a moment and imagine that you’ve just come back home from your dream vacation island and you had a wonderful time. Still the first feeling would be, “Ahh, it’s nice to be home”. For me personally, being within Folsom office and always with no exception carrying an exceptional transaction, the feeling is just like being home after that wonderful vacation. The level of safe of mind with the amount of supports, friendly staff and interacting with other agents were always life memories for me. At the Coldwell Banker Folsom office, relationships even with clients are the foundation of all professional activities. I literally practice following saying from Henry Ford in this office: Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."

"I have been a Real Estate Broker for over 45 years and have experience in many different areas of the real estate business. From simply an agent to managing an office to owning my own company. I have been with Coldwell Banker since 1992 and was the person who started and managed the first office in Folsom in 1993. The reason that I mention all of that experience is to be credible when I say…The Folsom Coldwell Banker office under the direction and management of John Pope and supported by Peggy Juday and Heather Tocatlian is the most efficient, most helpful, and most well run real estate office I have EVER worked in. The atmosphere and organization of this office breeds nothing but success for its agents. I and many other agents feel blessed to have such a positive atmosphere to work in. I tip my hat to John, Peggy, and Heather for their outstanding work."

"Coldwell Banker Folsom has to be one of the best RE offices in the Sacramento Region. John Pope, our office manager, has guided us for many years in becoming one of the top RE companies in the region. His years of experience, legal knowledge and teaching abilities, patience and so much more, make it a joy to work in his office. In addition we have a staff that I would give a 5 star rating if I were putting this on Yelp. Heather and Peggy are by far the most helpful administrators I have come across after being in the RE industry for over 35 years. They are always ready to answer questions, guide us thru the maze of Social Media and always doing it with a smile. The tools they provide make our office run like a will oiled machine. As long as I am in the RE business, I would never dream of going to any other office."

"In the short time that I've been with the office, I've had great success with getting the info and follow up that I've needed to get started on whatever Real Estate project that I needed to complete. Heather and Peggy have been a big help in getting me up to speed."
