DALLAS, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The booming Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex has become the beta test for relocating families all over the world. A phenomenal economy, dozens of major corporate headquarters relocating here and one of the hottest real estate markets in the country constitute an environment that allows buyers and sellers to access the best help available anywhere. At the heart of the relo hurricane is the largest area residential real estate broker, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, and its leading-edge relocation division. Headed by Faye Milliken and Karen Greene, this 30-member team has engineered relocation moves ranging from individuals seeking temporary apartment homes to major corporations moving thousands of people into the Metroplex. "Regardless of the size of a move, it can be a traumatic event in someone's life," says Ms. Milliken. "Families, individuals, corporations, employers, employees, spouses, children -- and even the pets -- find the transfer of all their worldly goods, as well as their familiar worlds, a life- changing experience. The mission of a good relocation specialist is to ensure that this move happens as seamlessly as possible. The less pain and the more convenience, the better." Both the Northeast Tarrant County and the Denton County areas of the Metroplex are among current hotbeds of relocation. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage's relocation division works with all 33 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices throughout this area to offer broad-based relocation services with strong international networking and technology connections created with the recent merger and acquisition that formed the new company. "These offices each have an in-depth knowledge of the many geographical areas, work centers, neighborhoods, schools, shopping and entertainment areas -- all available to our relocating families through the central Relocation Division," says Ms. Greene. "Local traditions with global connections" was the strategic theme promoted during the merger and acquisition of Coldwell Banker Paula Stringer, Realtors, and Wm Rigg, Realtors. The merger was closely followed by the joint entity's acquisition by NRT Incorporated, a transaction that made the company the largest broker in the Dallas/Fort Worth area as well as the state.
