Coldwell Banker Bain, like many great things, started off as a dream. Bill Bain, the Founder of Coldwell Banker Bain, had a dream of starting his own company, tailored to the “carriage trade” or wealthy consumers back in those times. It wouldn’t be long after that, did his dream come true. In 1972, Bill Bain launched a company called, William A. Bain Associates. His first office took root in the AGC building located on Lake Union in Seattle, Washington. Today, although owned by a different man by the name of Bill Riss, Coldwell Banker Bain has grown into a large successful company with over 1,000 agents, 30 offices and in two states, Washington & Oregon. Coldwell Banker Bain has stayed true to its original dream; provide the best service to the luxury real estate market.
