Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC recently selected Diann Patton of Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty in Grass Valley as its new national consumer spokesperson.
In this role, Patton will condense topics from pundits and front page stories into simple tips and advice for people who want to buy or sell a home.
“Diann has years of real estate expertise, along with real-life experience as a mother, wife and friend,” said Jim Gillespie, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “We feel that all of these skills make her an ideal consumer spokesperson, because she can provide advice on topics ranging from selling quickly with the right price, to staging a home for maximum appeal.”
Since taking on the role of national consumer real estate expert, Patton has filmed her first of many quick, informative videos to appear on the Coldwell Banker On Location channel.  The video, focusing on four important reasons that now is a smart time to buy real estate, can be viewed at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=U52fMqBE3Fk.
“Throughout my career, I’ve seen how a home is for many people the most important investment of their lives,” Patton said. “With the new incentives, great inventory, low interest rates and amazing prices, I want to do everything I can to spread the message that people can achieve the American Dream and own a home of their own.”
Patton was selected out of hundreds of other Coldwell Banker associates due to her depth of experience and commanding knowledge of real estate topics.
She is currently a broker and sales manager for Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty. She began her career in 1988 and moved to Grass Valley in 1993, where she has been with Coldwell Banker ever since. Additionally, Patton served as a previous director and treasurer of the Nevada County Association of Realtors and is currently a member of the Nevada County Association of Realtors BOR/PAC Committee and the Association of Realtors Professional Standards Committee.
