Thinking of buying a new or bigger and better home? According to our professional friends over at NorthStar Moving® Company, whether you are a first-time buyer or moving on up, these specific occasions top the list of the most common reasons people move. Other common reasons can be related to job changes, family expansion, desiring a better neighborhood or even changes in marital status.

Some researchers say that moving a household, for any reason, is one of the top-five stressful things in life. Typically, it is one of the most life-changing and expensive transactions most people will experience. That being said, two things can come to mind that can smooth out the happy-trail toward a new home: 1) a reliable moving professional and 2) the pre-move “Home Sweet Home” finders at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

One of our forever-missions here at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is keeping you and your family needs in the forefront when it comes to the selling and purchasing of your home. We understand there are many more important home buying decisions than square footage, bedroom count and curb appeal. In our fast-paced, changing world, most of us spend significant time away from home—at work, at school, at appointments and even shopping—plus the time traveling to get to our destinations and back.

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, a leader in the residential real estate industry, has you in mind once again, with the introduction of our latest innovation—SPOKES. Like spokes on a wheel, this online search tool is exclusive to, and, putting you at the center of your next home evaluation and buying decision.

SPOKES offers you the ability to calculate the distance and travel times between the home you’re considering and the other important hubs in your life. You can add up to three different SPOKES, plugging in the addresses of the places that matter most to you in relationship to each property listing in your database search.

SPOKES, a home search tool that revolves around your next move!
