Charity & Social Datebook 2017 Real Estate Agent, Coldwell Banker CAROLE SCHIFFER A native Angeleno, Carole Schiffer has called Bel Air home for the last 20 years. She received her MBA from UCLA before diving into the real estate market in 1978. In 2000, she joined Coldwell Banker as a leading real estate agent in the brand’s Brentwood office. Nationally, she is in the top 4 percent of the company. “I am a high-energy person and enjoy being a mentor for new licensees within Coldwell Banker. I love to grow, and I love watching my mentees grow,” says Schiffer. “I gain my clients’ trust by being very transparent and having clear, honest communication. People know that they can rely on me, and I am always happy to help.” That philanthropic attitude extends to the work she does within her community—from serving on the board of directors for her homeowners association in Bel Air and serving as social director to co-editing the community’s newsletter and co-chairing its emergency preparedness committee. Here, Schiffer shares what giving back means to her. Contact the legacy: 310.442.1384, caroleschiffer.com TELL US ABOUT YOUR CURRENT CHARITY ENDEAVORS.
