Without a doubt, 2020 was a year that no one will ever forget – and for Coldwell Banker Prime Properties, that's not just because of the pandemic. Last year, we grew by double digits, expanded into new markets, and helped more than 6500 individuals find a place to call home. At the core of our surging success is our local leadership teams, which are made up of 22 individuals, 18 of whom are women.
As a top 2% Coldwell Banker affiliate, we are especially proud this year to celebrate Coldwell Banker's recent honor of the Women's Choice Award. The Women's Choice Award is the only award that recognizes and identifies brands that women recommend.
At Coldwell Banker, we value women in real estate. I am beyond proud to work for a brand that empowers women to take on leadership roles and strives to make the industry better. Through our work with our Inclusive Ownership program and What Moves Her initiative, we are continuously exploring new ways to support leadership development, promote shared values, and provide resources for enhancing leadership tools and capabilities for women in the industry." – Liz Gehringer, chief operating officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
Not only is Coldwell Banker recommended as a brand to work with, but as real estate leaders in customer experience and quality, Coldwell Banker Prime Properties is an incredible place to work for.

Years ago during our search for a new home, I connected with a Realtor who was about my age with children very close in age to ours. After school we looked at homes with our kids; she and I went to lunch at various Broker open houses weekly. This was such a great experience; however, looking back I realize how unusual it was. She made looking at homes fun. There was no pressure. We had become great friends. Eventually, we bought a lovely home. One step led to another and I decided I had to grasp the Real Estate career straw. I'm a people person and I found my people!
My real estate success has allowed our children to graduate from college student loan free. My husband and I have traveled to nearly every corner of the world. We are comfortable and very happy. Mid-way through my sales career I was offered a management position and I found my true calling. I truly enjoy watching agents experience their own adventures and grow to their full potential. It's easy to give advice – harder to give advice that will help someone grow and succeed. That's what I do.
A few years ago I wrote a book about real estate: It's Pretty Simple…but It's Never Easy. I think that pretty much describes this career – meeting people, showing homes, finding the solutions to problems, and changing lives. Yup, it is pretty simple…..but it's never easy.
My name is Melissa A. Paquette, Branch Manager/Associate Real Estate Broker at Coldwell Banker Prime Properties in their New Hartford Office. Living in the Mohawk Valley my whole life and currently still reside in Deerfield with my son, Joshua. My love for the Upstate NY Area has kept me here as it's a great location and offers four beautiful seasons of enjoyment.
Real estate has always been a career of interest to me throughout my life. I found that upon being a receptionist for a real estate office years ago brought me to see what a big decision homeownership was. I decided what better way to help my community build their dreams than becoming a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson allowing me to help them make the dream of homeownership possible! Working with people, helping them to buy or sell a home, is a unique and rewarding experience for all. With my 20 years' experience combined in being a Real Estate Professional, Mentor, and Manager I have covered most avenues of the home buying and selling process numerous times!
My involvement with local organizations helps keep me involved and active within the community. I have held a position for the last 3 years on the local MLS Board with the Mohawk Valley Association of Realtors with my current position as President. The past 16+ years I have been active in Scouting at both Cub and Boy Scout levels, Chaired the Boy Scout Mother's Day Breakfast each year at Deerfield Volunteer Fire Dept, active in the Autism Awareness Walk yearly along with several other community organizations events. Being active in the community is very important to me as we all live in a great community and should support each other to have continued success.
Most currently managing for the last 6+ years of my career has been most rewarding for me as I love helping and assisting all the agents within my office. I am committed to my job and agents whenever day or night they need me. I am always here for everyone!
