History of Coldwell Banker Harbour Realty

Coldwell Banker Harbour Realty formed in 1996 as the result of the merging of Lassiter Realty founded in 1963 by Herbert and Joyce Lassiter and Whitman Realty, founded in 1987. Because of the partnership with both Lassiter and Whitman, Coldwell Banker Harbour Realty has a long history of serving the Eastern Shore. What started as a small, one office company has grown to meet the demand and changing needs of our community and now offers real estate services from five offices covering the Virginia peninsula from Chincoteague to Cape Charles. Coldwell Banker Harbour Realty is the largest real estate firm on the Eastern Shore. We have over 50 professional realtors who maintain the tradition started 40 years ago of providing the highest quality in customer service to our clients and to meeting their real estate needs.

What We Believe

While Coldwell Banker Harbour Realty has continued to grow through the years, we have not compromised the integrity of “small town” attitude when it comes to serving our community. Most of our agents are lifelong residents of the Eastern Shore and we are proud of the community in which we live and work. To that end, our company is consistently involved in philanthropic activities such as the Adopt-A-Highway program and charitable campaigns across the Eastern Shore. Making a positive difference in our community is paramount in our philosophy.

For over 40 years, Coldwell Banker Harbour Realty has been assisting the people of the Eastern Shore with their real estate needs as well as helping people off the Shore find property here and helping make their dreams come true as well. Building lasting relationships with people who put their trust in us is the secret to our longevity. The networking, referral and relocation services available have only enhanced the hometown personal approach that is our trademark. As technology has become a greater part of our business, we have continued to put personal relationships first, building trust before and after the sale.

We are the number one company in the local market and boast the largest inventory of properties from which to choose and the largest number of sales year after year. Our philosophy of Premier Personal Service has stood the test of time. We work with our customers through the entire real estate transaction with the mindset that it is after the closing that the real relationship begins, ensuring that we will be there for them in the future when they have additional real estate needs.
