In the early 1970’s, Ed began his real estate career with a local firm named Robert J. Honig and Associates. Beginning as a sales agent, Ed became one of the top salesmen in the state, and grew his business through hard work, honesty and a strong belief in family values.
In 1984, after what was then the worst recession since the Great Depression, he purchased Robert J. Honig and Associates which consisted of 2 offices and 20 Realtors® producing approximately $20 million in residential sales. He changed the company name to Honig Realty and quickly grew to the #1 real estate firm in Will County with 7 offices and over 200 agents. Ed realized that the real estate industry was quickly becoming more than just a local business and began looking for a national brand to help maximize exposure to areas outside of Will County. After researching all real estate brands, one stood above all others. It was Coldwell Banker.
In February 1997, He purchased Coldwell Banker Bell, the two companies created Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell with 14 offices and over 400 agents.
From 1997 to date, we have built Coldwell Banker Honig- Bell through recruitment, mergers and acquisitions. In 2015, Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell purchased Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group and extended its growth within the Midwest. With the addition of the The Real Estate Group, we are now the largest Coldwell Banker franchise affiliate in the United States, #1 in the state of Illinois and #1 in the state of Wisconsin.
Today, we are proud to say that Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell consists of 51 residential real estate offices, 2 commercial offices, and over 1,200 professionally trained Realtors® who were involved in over $2.9 billion in residential home sales last year.
We pride ourselves on being a family owned, full service, customer focused company offering a full array of real estate services. It is with great pride that we offer you the services of our firm and its associates, all of whom believe in honesty, integrity and strong family values.
