Coldwell Banker Heritage is consolidating two of its offices into a new Washington Twp. location that will allow it to grow in its 50th year as a company.
The firm will close two of its offices near the Dayton Mall and in Centerville when the leases run out, and will move into a new 10,000-square-feet office being built out in the Galleria Building at 8534 Yankee St.
The 64,000-square-foot building will be renamed the Coldwell Banker Building and will hold 65 Coldwell Banker employees in the leased office space, according to Ron Sweeney, managing partner.

“The move will allow us to grow more agents, give our existing agents an office that better fits their needs all while taking care of our clients’ needs, ” Sweeney said.
Coldwell Banker Heritage has 365 agents in the Dayton area in nine sales offices, the most the company has had in its 50 years. Sweeney said he believes that number will grow.
“The past two years have been some of the best for the company. If we can get more inventory in the market, I expect our growth to continue,” Sweeney said.
The company, which saw sales increase by 12 percent in 2016, will move into the Washington Twp. office in September, Sweeney said. He said once they move in, the building will have less than 5,000 square feet of empty office space.
Coldwell Banker Heritage, which has a corporate headquarters location at 4060 Executive Drive in Dayton, was started in 1967 as Heritage Realtors. The company franchised with Coldwell Banker in 1996.
