SANDY, Utah—October 26, 2011—Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Utah’s largest residential real estate brokerage company, announced today that real estate veteran and Utah native Chris Jensen has been named president by its parent company, NRT LLC. In his new position, Jensen will oversee the daily operations of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s 11 offices and more than 700 sales associates.
Jensen most recently was vice president and managing broker at Prudential Utah Real Estate’s South Ogden branch. Previously he served as broker/manager for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
“Chris’ in-depth knowledge of the Utah real estate market, his deep roots in the community, and his creative, forward-looking approach to management and business development combine to make him well-equipped to lead Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Utah area,” said Greg Macres, regional executive vice president for the western region of NRT LLC, the nation’s largest residential real estate brokerage company. “We are fortunate to have someone of Chris’ caliber to lead our team as Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage continues to expand its operations in this very important market.”
Jensen entered real estate in 1990 and he immediately distinguished himself, earning five consecutive Sales Master awards as well as being named President’s Club honoree, both coveted honors for top sales production. Just five years after entering real estate, Jensen earned his broker’s license and soon after opened the first Prudential Real Estate Franchise in Weber County. In 1996, he was honored with the Lifetime Sales Master award for his sales achievement during his first six years in the business. Jensen has served as Director of the Greater Ogden Area Association of Realtors from 1999-2001.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to help lead this highly successful organization and its talented group of sales associates and employees,” said Jensen. “The economy and the housing market have been challenging as everyone knows, but these challenges have prompted both real estate professionals and home buyers and sellers alike to turn to the strength of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage to manage through this challenging time.”

“Our local management team has extensive experience and I want to make sure we’re tapping their talent, ideas and market knowledge as we set the course for the future,” he said.
In addition to his business success, Jensen is an accomplished athlete. He earned first place in the World Professional Mogul Skiing Championships in Vail, Colo., took first place overall in the first-ever Utah Winter Games and earned a host of other National and World Freestyle Championships.
