Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre


Bruce Shipley and sales force of established brokerage serving Barrie, Innisfil and
Simcoe County choose to join the Coldwell Banker® global network. 

(Barrie, ON – September 28, 2018.)  Coldwell Banker Affiliates of Canada is pleased to announce that the sales professionals of a well-established Ontario brokerage serving Barrie, Innisfil and Simcoe County have joined forces with Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre, under the leadership of owners Dean and Tania Artenosi.  The Coldwell Banker global network has 92,000 sales professionals in 47 countries worldwide.

Bruce Shipley, former owner of Exit Realty First North and a past President of the Barrie and District Association of REALTORS®, will become Business Development Manager for Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre following his transition to the global brand.

“We’re delighted to welcome Bruce and his experienced sales force to our operation,” said Dean Artenosi. “Bruce is a heritage son of Barrie and we’ve enjoyed a strong business relationship with him for many years. The professionalism of Bruce and his team together with their long-standing connection with Simcoe County will be great assets as we work together to expand our market presence.”

“The transition to Coldwell Banker was the right decision for our sales representatives,” said Bruce Shipley. “This new affiliation offers many exciting new synergies and opportunities that I believe will best position us for long term success.  We’re looking forward to our future together.”

This latest expansion for Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre is part of an ongoing growth strategy for the Ontario brokerage.  In the fourth quarter of last year, the company opened a new Coldwell Banker Global Luxury themed office in Scarborough.  The brokerage now has eight offices in Toronto, Vaughan, Newmarket, Innisfil, Orillia and Barrie.

“We welcome Bruce Shipley and his team to the Coldwell Banker network, and congratulate owners Dean and Tania Artenosi on this latest business venture,” said Andy Puthon, president of Coldwell Banker Canada Operations ULC.  “By providing an effective succession strategy for the First North operation, they have further strengthened Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Centre’s presence in the central Ontario market.”
