A career in real estate can be a great choice for those who have the “entrepreneurial drive” to build their own path to success, design their own business model and work with others day in and day out. In Ontario, the majority of Realtors® are considered to be independent contractors which make you ultimately responsible for how you run your business. That is part of the benefits of owning your own business: you set your goals, your budget, your plans and schedule.
Where does Coldwell Banker® come in to the equation? Affiliating with Coldwell Banker Momentum gives you the power to align yourself with one of the largest real estate brands in the world. Our brand gives you instant credibility in the real estate market when approaching potential clients and customers. Our strength also comes in our world wide network of brokerages and opportunities to grow your business beyond Niagara.
Your decision to pursue a career in real estate can be exciting… and daunting. Due to the entrepreneurial nature of real estate, the ultimate height of your success is in your control. The value of affiliating with Coldwell Banker Real Estate is that you don't have to learn and work alone.
At Coldwell Banker Momentum our strength depends on the success of the sales representatives and brokers who affiliate with us. This means we are in the business of empowering your growth and achievement.

Our company is here to help. There is more to success than the tools described above. Your choice to join our company will put you in a position to work with a wealth of experience. Our team is always sharing with one another and bringing ideas about their success stories to sales round tables and meetings.
It's no secret that a career in real estate and the lifestyle it brings isn't for everyone. If you're really happy working for others and leaving your work at home at quitting time, this may not be the right fit for you. However, if you enjoy having control of how you work, when you work, who you work for, how high you rise in your career, and enjoy doing work that makes a difference in people's lives, affiliating with Coldwell Banker Momentum could be a great decision for your real estate career path.
It is likely you will find the culture of our offices is in harmony with this mindset. While the entrepreneurial nature of your real estate business puts you in control of your work/life balance, we find that many of our successful real estate professionals work in a state of work/life integration. Their love for what they do means that their business is ingrained in all they do, and those things that they are passionate about outside of their career soon become woven into how they do business. Whether it's volunteering for charity, networking over food or wine, or being highly active in the community where they live, work and play, there are many daily activities that can build and strengthen relationships that reveal business opportunities.
