Coldwell Banker Canada Announces 2023 Winners in Annual Year-End Real Estate Awards

The most productive, the most inspiring and the most helpful people in the Coldwell Banker Canada real estate network are being celebrated as real estate awards season wraps up after another productive, inspiring and helpful year. 

“In our full-service brokerages across the country, we share one goal, which is to guide clients to the homes of their dreams,” said Karim Kennedy, CEO of Coldwell Banker Canada.  

“Our brokerages are where agents use their passion and experience—along with top-level training, support and technology—to make those dreams happen. We are proud of their work and the example of excellence they set. Congratulations to all!”  

Here’s a selection of the big winners:  




Rookie Of The Year Award 

The Rookie Of The Year, for both GCI and Units Sold, was Sarah Vidalin of Coldwell Banker Oceanside Real Estate.  

 Vidalin credited her well-known land developer father for her work ethic, realtor Eric Smith for his encouragement and brokerage colleagues for their friendship and support.  

“Coldwell Banker was the only place where everyone was welcoming,” Vidalin said.  


Canadian Pillar of Support Award 

New this year was the Canadian Pillar of Support Award, recognizing an individual who demonstrated exceptional proficiency, dedication and effectiveness in administrative support.  

 Typical of the small mountain of nomination testimonials in support of Ellen Rahm of R.M.R. Real Estate, Brokerage, in Whitby, ON, was this tribute from a colleague: 

 “Ellen does everything for our office! Everything is an understatement. She makes the world go round at Coldwell Banker R.M.R. She supports all our agents in a way that I have never experienced working at other brokerages. She is always available to help. She always answers her phone when we call, and she does everything to her best ability to make our agents’ lives as easy and stress-free as possible. Ellen is truly one of a kind and we are so lucky to have her.” 

Canadian Ambassador Award 

Bianca Myddleton, Broker-Owner of Coldwell Banker Marquise Realty in Surrey, BC, won the coveted Canadian Ambassador Award, which is given to the talented and dedicated person in the network who proactively seeks to represent the best attributes of Coldwell Banker global brand.  

 Said CEO Kennedy: “She was celebrated for the professionalism in her office and her staff as well as for advocating for professionalism in the industry in the Fraser Valley. Bianca has also been a leading charitable force behind the annual Coldwell Banker Marquise Diaper Drive, which helps young families in need.”
