Jeep Rackley Earns Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialist Designation

San Antonio, TX, January 2017 — Jeep Rackley, REALTOR®, CLHMS, of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® has earned the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury™ Property Specialist designation, according to Leesa Harper Rispoli, President of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®. To date, only ten percent of the more than 88,000 sales associates affiliated with the Coldwell Banker® brand have been awarded this designation. “In addition to performance-based criteria on successfully selling luxury properties, Rackley had to complete a prescribed certification course to earn the Luxury Property Specialist designation,” said Leesa Harper Rispoli.

Launched in early 2017, the Coldwell Banker Global LuxurySM program legacy traces its roots to Coldwell Banker Previews International® and the Previews® program, a leader in luxury real estate since 1933. The Coldwell Banker Global Luxury certification course creates a standardized education model to help the newest generation of luxury agents meet and exceed the expectations of high-net-worth clients. In order to participate in the course, participating agents must meet strict production guidelines — “Some of the most rigorous standards in the industry today.” says Craig Hogan, Vice President of Luxury at Coldwell Banker Real Estate, LLC. Certification renewal is also required every 24 months, to ensure Luxury Property Specialists are up to date on new technologies, programs, and best practices.

Born Gene Rackley, Jeep is a third generation Boerne native. He has been a licensed REALTOR® serving Boerne and the surrounding Hill Country since 1997 with nearly 20 years industry experience. His past real estate experience in locations such as Costa Rica and Belize have cultivated Jeep’s repertoire for luxury clientele. When Jeep is not working he enjoys spending time with his family.

New Boerne Location

01_Front ExteriorNow that the big move is over, we visited with Amy Thibodeaux, the Vice President of Residential Sales for the Boerne office, and the entire team at a sales meeting at their new location on River Road.

“I want CBDHR to make a positive footprint here in Boerne. . . We want to be here in many capacities, Community Service, as well as Real Estate.”

Rachelle Lozano, the Director of Marketing, was on-site with a member of her team to talk about the benefits of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS Powerhouse Marketing. In addition, Lozano welcomed feedback from the Sales Associates about working in Boerne and some of the challenges they faced in the world of real estate.

11402997_918863918175216_9144197488158877731_nTaking a tour of the beautiful new office, we were able to snap a few photos highlighting the comforts of their new home. Having a sense of comfort and inviting clients to enjoy a beautiful new office with us is just part of the reason so much effort is put into the decor. D’Ann Harper herself custom designed this building and selected the adornments within. The result is a place our team members are proud to call home.

Away from the construction and in a wonderful location off Main and just a short drive down River Road, the office is close by some well-known thoroughfare. This location is easy to navigate to and very welcoming. The Dodging Duck and Little Gretel are both wonderful local restaurants where some of the Sales Associates visit with friends or offer lunch meetings with clients.

IMG_2366One of the Boerne Sales Associates, Lisa Stanley, loves to help people reach their dreams. Her real estate business is about building relationships during and after the transaction. This is aligned with the belief at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® that we’re family and finding that right home is the single most important purchase one can make in their adult lifetime. Stanley does not see herself as a salesperson, but someone who loves to help people reach their dreams.

11227759_918864014841873_6635213889051771696_nAmy Thibodeaux, pictured left, says safety classes are in the works from local law enforcement and firefighters.  Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Boerne office proudly sponsors and serves several charities; Boerne Education FoundationRoy Maas Youth Alternatives, the new Hill Country Optimist Club and Hill Country Daily Bread, to list a few. Amy plans to offer the Boerne office for charity events to support these groups.
