Home Building to Home Selling-How it All Got Started!

Back in 1960, H.H “Pap” West and his two sons, W.V. and Rudy West started a family owned business. A building supply store, (West & Sons), and a construction company, (West Construction), were formed to handle the real estate needs in Columbus.  Hundreds of homes were built by this family over the years.  Their slogan, “If It’s  West Built, It’s Best Built”, truly was the reputation of this family owned business.

As the business grew, the need to sell the existing homes of new customers that wanted a newly constructed home, became more apparent.  In 1968, Rudy West acquired his real estate brokerage license and West Realty Company began the third family owned business.  Agents were hired to market these existing and new homes.

The building supply store was sold and the construction company was taken over by Rudy’s two sons, Ronnie & Steve West.   Over the next 15 years, W.V.  and Rudy West, along with another partner, J.T Moore ran a very successful real estate business.  In August of 1984, West Realty Company franchised with Coldwell Banker Real Estate.  W.V. West’s son, Don West,  took over as the Principal Broker of Coldwell Banker West Realty.  Later, he became President of West Realty Company.  The growth was tremendous in listing inventory, sales and agents.

Coldwell Banker West Realty has just surpassed over 40 years with the Coldwell Banker franchise.  The West family name has now been entrusted in real estate sales for over 50 years to many satisfied clients and customers.  The nickname “Pap” will continue on for many years as Don’s nickname for his grandchildren is just that!
