The latest California headlines clearly show a lot of positive signs: both home sales and prices are up, foreclosures are declining, mortgage interest rates are at record lows and demand from investors has been increasing. In fact, many real estate experts believe the strong performance of 2012 will continue into 2013 across the state.

Nationally, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC has also recognized a more positive real estate landscape with a national advertising campaign aimed at reaching consumers earlier in the seasonal buying and selling process. Launched in parallel with the 70th annual Golden Globes Awards on NBC in January, the “Blue Carpet” campaign includes four major entertainment award shows with a Coldwell Banker brand presence in 2013. Upcoming commercials will run on CBS (February 10), the 85th annual Oscars on ABC (February 24) and the 65th annual Emmys on ABC (September 22). In addition to advertising buys on ABC, CBS and NBC for the four award shows, Coldwell Banker Real Estate will also have exclusive video and social integrations, as well as exclusive media buys in a variety of other shows and high-profile events throughout the year.
