BRENHAM, TX—Three generations of women founded and expanded Coldwell Banker Properties Unlimited. Kelli Brennan, vice president of Coldwell Banker Commercial Properties and Coldwell Banker Properties Unlimited, recalls the reaction of the local market when her sister, Lindi Braddock, and their mother, Yvonne Hastings, co-founded the agency.
“To say we caused an uproar in the market is an understatement,” she says. “We shook up the system when we started our female-owned brokerage. Some thought that women had their uses as a secretary or assistant who could help men promote their careers.”
