Open House

Coldwell Banker

The Coldwell Banker Life, Camera, Action Contest now has 10 finalists and a grand prize winner will be announced on Friday, but we wanted to showcase a few of our favorite submissions that just missed out on a few votes that kept them from being finalists. This video called "Open House" gives a child's view of how showing a home for sale should work. Gotta say that blonde girl has a promising career in real estate.


Dear Poppy

Coldwell Banker

This video submitted as part of the Coldwell Banker Life, Camera, Action YouTube contest takes a different look at home from others featured. “Dear Poppy” is a sentimental look at one life event that turned a dream house into a true home. While the video didn’t make it as a contest finalist, it’s still one of our favorite submissions.


This is Home

Coldwell Banker

Here it is. The grand prize winner for the Coldwell Banker Life, Camera, Action YouTube contest which asked people to submit a video of their kids or pets giving a tour of their home or sharing what makes their home so special. The winning video comes from the Johnson family in Henderson, NV that’s titled “This is Home” although here at Coldwell Banker we affectionately refer to it as “rapping kids.” Regardless of the name, I’m pretty sure you’ll call it adorable.
