The Hollywood lifestyle was alive and well at this year’s Coldwell Banker Top One Percent Retreat where California and Hawaii’s leading Independent Sales Associates came together to celebrate their success like true A-list celebrities.

The event took place on October 23-26 at the Montage Beverly Hills, one of the city’s most iconic hotels that’s known for its vintage Hollywood ambiance and prime location near high-end shopping options and quality dining spots.

Over 60 Sales Associates from Coldwell Banker Northern California and Oahu, and their invited guests, wined, dined, spent the night in plush suites and enjoyed the renowned hotel’s rooftop pool and cocktail lounge.

To assure their guests of honor were enjoying the experience like Hollywood royalty, Coldwell Banker hosted five celebratory events that allowed the elite group to mingle amongst one another as they engaged in fun activities.

And what better way to break the ice than by having guests lip sync their favorite songs in front of the group? The “Coldwell Banker’s Got Talent” group competition brought out the inner performers of these real estate professionals as they let loose, dressed up, danced and sung hits including Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”, the Beatles’ “Twist and Shout,” Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” and many more. Two teams won the competition with standout performances from Anne Johnson and Trudy Copland of the Coldwell Banker Danville office.


Later, attendees were met by Southern California’s top 1% Sales Associates for a welcome reception and dinner on the terrace of the luxurious hotel that included an evening of networking and exquisite cuisine.

The next day, Sales Associates laced up their tennis shoes to tackle the “Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills Adventure” on famous Rodeo Drive. Teams soared through the two-mile stretch as they completed hilarious photo challenges like giving a stranger a piggyback ride, wrapping team members up with toilet paper like a mummy and posing jokingly in front of check points. A total of 209 tasks were achieved by the upbeat group and ultimately the team consisting of Shawn Miller and Susan Castaneda of the Coldwell Banker Los Gatos office won the entire challenge.


To end the gold star trip, a final night of dinner and dancing at Mastro’s Steakhouse further enhanced the glamorous experience by letting Sales Associates celebrate the last hurrah of the trip in a festive and sophisticated setting. Cocktails, hors d’oeurves, a delicious feast and dancing took place as attendees wrapped up their glamorous experience in true Hollywood fashion.


What a great way to celebrate the many achievements of Coldwell Banker Sales Associates!
