Washington, D.C., January 23, 2020 – Richard Fleischer has been appointed the role of president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Mid-Atlantic. In this position, Fleischer will oversee the daily operations of the company's 28 offices supporting more than 2,400 sales agents in Greater Baltimore, Greater Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and the Maryland and Delaware beaches.
Fleischer most recently served as the regional vice president of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida, the state’s largest residential brokerage. He managed operations for the East Central region, overseeing 25 branch and satellite offices in metro Orlando and on the Atlantic coast, from Flagler County south through Melbourne to Palm Beach and Boca Raton. Supporting more than 1,100 sales agents, Fleischer doubled the productivity of the sales offices, grew the region organically, and rapidly increased profitability, while in that role.
Early in his career, Fleischer served as the relocation manager for Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida and in Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Southern California. In these roles he directly managed a team of relocation consultants and vastly improved referral activities. He began his career with the company in 2004, earning the Fast Star award for exceptional sales production.
"Rich is an outstanding leader with a strong history of supporting top-producing agents while also growing operations and sales volume,” said Sue Yannaccone, regional executive vice president of the Eastern Seaboard and Midwest for Coldwell Banker’s company-owned operations. “He is extremely talented and has earned respect and admiration from his colleagues and the countless agents he has supported throughout his career. I am confident that under Rich’s leadership, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Mid-Atlantic is well positioned for continued growth as the Eastern Seaboard’s leading residential real estate company.”
Fleischer replaces Duff Rubin, who was hand-selected to serve as general manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida. He is the chosen successor to lead the company when current Florida company President Clark Toole retires as the end of 2020. “We are all incredibly proud of Duff’s many achievements and we look forward to continuing to celebrate his accomplishments as he navigates one of the largest and most successful Coldwell Banker flagships in the country,” continued Yannaccone.
