Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty Company, the oldest and largest real estate company headquartered in the Metro South area, has moved its Peachtree City office into a newly-renovated, two-story brick building inside the city limits.

The announcement was made by Steve Bullard, owner and president of the Coldwell Banker Bullard organization.

The company’s Peachtree City office was previously located at 1968-A Hwy. 54 West, Fayetteville, just outside the eastern city limits of Peachtree City.

The new location for the office at 201 Prime Point was a former medical office building that was owned by the Catholic Church of Atlanta. Walter K. Krauth III, who served as project manager for the renovation and move, said that “with great assistance from Father John Walsh of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Archdiocese Wilton D. Gregory sold Bullard Investments LLC the building in June 2006.” The Holy Trinity Catholic Church and McIntosh High School, which have their main entrances on Walt Banks Road, are both situated on sites adjacent to the real estate company’s new branch office location.
Bullard explained that the building in Peachtree City will be used entirely for Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty and the local support staff. The company’s corporate offices will remain in Jonesboro.

The building, a 9,000 sq. ft. facility, has been completely remodeled. The team consisted of Krauth, who is with Bullard Property Management, as project manager; Harold “Buddy” Troy, a resident of Peachtree City and partner in Herring Troy Associates of Atlanta, lead architect; Brooke Allen, Herring Troy Associates of Atlanta, interior decorator; and Warren Hanks Construction of Marietta, general contractor.
Krauth said that as part of the interior design, Bullard Realty’s Technology Department, led by IT Director Wayne Martin, had the foresight to install multiple future operational systems in the building, including but not limited to a video wall for multiple listing presentations; a technology training room for agent development; and a VOIP (voice over internet protocol) phone and data system which allows voice and data communications over computer lines. The VOIP system also allows each agent requesting them to have two personal phone numbers and a personal FAX line.

He also expressed appreciation to the Peachtree City Building Inspection Department and the Fire Department of Peachtree City for their thoughtful guidance during the project.
Bullard said the building has the seating space for approximately 70 to 100 agents, two conference rooms and one training room. Support in the building can include reception, manager, assistant manager, office manager, mortgage, and legal staffing. The Peachtree City office currently has 48 agents, a manager, an office manager, and a PHH Mortgage customer service representative.

Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty, founded in 1956 by the late Cliff Bullard and his wife Lena, worked out a franchise agreement with Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation a few years ago and is the largest Coldwell Banker franchise in Georgia and is also the largest real estate company headquartered between I-20 and the Florida line. Steve Bullard has been with the company for nearly 35 years.

The company was ranked at No. 13 in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s most recent listing of “Atlanta’s Top 25 Residential Real Estate Companies”, and it is the principal Cendant Mobility broker for the South and East Metro Atlanta areas, having the largest Relocation Department on the Southside.

Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty, in addition to the corporate headquarters/branch office in Jonesboro and the branch office in Peachtree City, has other branch locations in McDonough, Newnan, Griffin, Jackson, Locust Grove, and Conyers. An affiliated company, Coldwell Banker American Land Mart of Conyers, has a major share of the luxury home market in the Rockdale County area and handles the sales and marketing of numerous subdivisions in the East Metro area. This company was founded by Alton Housworth Jr. in 1986 and was sold to the Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty organization in January of 2004. During 2006, Coldwell Banker ALM had a 63 percent market share in sales above $500,000 in Rockdale County.
