In its 130th year of continuous operation, Coldwell Banker Hedges Realty has announced that it will expand to Marion, with a new branch office at 1104 7th Avenue in Uptown Marion, slated to open in early 2018.

"Our top priority is providing the support and facilities that our agents need to be successful, and we are thrilled to be adding a new Marion office," said Mike Esker, Coldwell Banker Hedges broker, in a press release. "With over 110 agents - and more coming on board in 2018 - our team has begun to outgrow our two Cedar Rapids offices. Another office in the fast-growing Marion market will reinforce the superior service, aggressive marketing, and local expertise that Coldwell Banker Hedges agents provide to our clients across eastern Iowa."

Previously the Antique Mall and also known as the Park Place building across from Marion City Square Plaza, Coldwell Banker Hedges Realty will lease the 3,000 square feet of the building's main floor. The release stated the company will invest in renovating the interior in the upcoming months prior to opening.

"Once renovations are completed, this new facility will be a fantastic addition to downtown Marion, and an important resource for our clients and agents," said Esker in the release. "Great things are happening in Marion, and we're excited to be a part of it."

President of Marion Economic Development Corporation (MEDCO) Nick Glew commended the company for expanding to Marion, stating, "Coldwell Banker Hedges Realty's commitment to Marion is a true testament to the current and anticipated development in our community." He also added, "We are confident that Marion's commercial and residential growth will continue, and are pleased to see partners like Coldwell Banker Hedges stand alongside us to make great things happen in Marion."

A Grand Opening is expected in early 2018.
