Tulsa-based Coldwell Banker Select said it has expanded its commercial real estate business in Oklahoma City by merging with Thomas D. Butcher Realty.
Tom Butcher, with 25 years of experience, leads Coldwell Banker Select's Commercial & Industrial Division here, said Pete Galbraith, of Sapulpa, president of Coldwell Banker Select and a member of the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission.
“At this time, we are fortunate to be able to grow our Coldwell Banker Commercial brand in the OKC area and we are pleased that Mr. Butcher has agreed to help us accomplish our immediate goal of expansion,” Galbraith said. “We are able to continue to provide knowledgeable and professional real estate transaction services to both our commercial and residential clients.”
Coldwell Banker Select has more than 500 brokers working across Oklahoma, with offices in 17 cities, including Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Edmond, Mustang and Blanchard.
Butcher said it was Coldwell Banker's global reach that attracted him to the firm. Coldwell Banker, based in Parsippany, N.J., has more than 200 offices and 2,800 commercial realty experts in 26 countries.
Coldwell Banker's commercial division “continues to be an industry leader among commercial service providers,” Butcher said.
Galbraith said, “Tom is an experienced commercial broker and we like his positive attitude. We are here to support him and to help all ... clients have the best possible experience.”
