While it might be nice to know how many homes we sell in a year or how many sales representatives we have across the country-are these the numbers that really matter?
At Coldwell Banker Rhodes & Company, we believe the most meaningful indicator of any real estate company’s performance is customer satisfaction. If the quality of our service ultimately leads to your satisfaction-100% satisfaction–then we will have accomplished what we set out to do. Isn’t that really the only measurement that matters to you, too?
How does a real estate company flourish in an unstable market? Ask Ned Rhodes, whose father founded Rhodes Real Estate in 1940. He’ll tell you that you need to keep abreast of new technology, attract and recruit top-notch sales representatives and stay involved in your business community. In 1988 Rhodes saw a need for change. In order to survive in a very competitive market and to give the company a new approach, a partnership was formed.
Rhodes and Company Ltd. was developed to include 3 new partners; Jim McKeown, Gary Greenwood, and Ross Heuchan. This expanded company was able to attract and recruit new agents, which is a critical part of the real estate business.
The Rhodes family has grown dramatically over the years. Their amalgamation with Coldwell Banker in 1995 produced Coldwell Banker Rhodes & Company, increasing their sales team to over 50 agents. Our award-winning team is made up of highly experienced agents that come from all over the Ottawa area and bring a wealth of talent and experience.
Coldwell Banker Rhodes has made a point of staying abreast of technological change. Wherever you are located-in Ottawa or around the world-we cn meet your needs through our network of more than 3,800 offices in 45 countries.
Part of Rhodes’ success can be attributed to a team approach and a strong client focus. Their weekly sales meetings attract guest speakers from the business community, brainstorming amongst the sales staff and an on-site tour of new listings by all the agents. There are over 50 sales representatives and a knowledgeable support staff, who, whether they are working with a buyer or seller, can count on the whole team’s input in the sales process.
Rhodes and his partners are excited about the future of the Ottawa real estate market and intend to grow their company by following a simple philosophy. Work hard, be innovative, network all the time and above all, employ only the best staff.

With a family that has been in the real estate business for more than 70 years, it was clearly an obvious choice for Tony to follow in the successful footsteps of his uncle and grandfather. Real estate was Tony’s first choice for a career and has been his business since the age of 22 years.
Today, more than ever, it takes more than hard work to ensure his clients are satisfied with the results of their real estate experience. It takes knowledge of current market trends, knowledge of today’s property values, access to the latest technology, sharp negotiation skills, and above all, the patience to listen and understand his client’s real estate needs.
