TOP TWO & COMMERCIAL ELITE EVENT QUALIFICATION GUIDELINES

The “Top Two and Commercial Elite Event” is an incentive event in which the top 2% of CBC sales professionals as well as the owners of the top 15 CBC companies are invited to network with their peers, establish new business opportunities and bask in the success of their accomplishments, while relaxing at an exciting, fun-filled destination.

TOP TWO* • To qualify for an invitation, CBC sales professionals must be ranked in the top 2% of all CBC sales professionals. • In addition to being within the top 2% of sales professionals, qualifying professionals must have a minimum CLOSED and PAID commercial AGC of $200,000 based on the most recent calendar year production. • Only commercial production reported and closed by December 31, 2014 and paid by January 8, 2015 to Coldwell Banker Commercial® Affiliates will be used in determining eligibility for the event. • The eligible sales professional must have an active status and be affiliated with an active Coldwell Banker Commercial office at the time of the event. • The Coldwell Banker Commercial office, which a qualifier belongs to, must be in legal and financial compliance at the time of awards presentation and event date in order for that qualifier to attend the Top Two Event. • The invitation to the Top Two Event is non-transferable and no substitutions for the following year or for other events are permitted. • In the event that a qualifying professional cannot attend the Top Two Event, a cash equivalent will not be provided.

COMMERCIAL ELITE* • To qualify for an invitation, a CBC company must be ranked in the top 15 companies overall in commercial AGC, based on the most recent calendar year production. • Only the Owner with majority ownership is invited to attend.
