Big changes this morning for the Bakersfield realty duo Crisp & Cole.
Carl Cole, 60, has confirmed that he will step down as chief broker, but will remain a partner in the firm.
Cole says the move was amicable between he and co-owner David Crisp, and he hopes to ease up on his work schedule. He says his health was also a factor in the decision, and that he wants to spend more time with his family.
In September, the two denied rumors of bankruptcy and F.B.I. investigations.
Cole says he will now focus on developing a $350 million office and condominium tower project, with Cal State Bakersfield.
Let me be the first to say there is 100% no way CSUB is going to do this project. What a total joke! Also, no mention of the competing business that is not a competing business:
Cole is no longer the broker on record at Crisp & Cole. Instead, he has signed on to work as the broker at his son's Bakersfield business, Points West Realty.
Cole said he is not competing against himself by working with son Alan Cole and Crisp concurred.
Both said Points West is significantly different from Crisp & Cole: It's a small, traditional real estate office that doesn't advertise on TV or maintain a high profile.
"He's running that whole thing," said Crisp
Not a competing business - don't they both sell real estate? Love the line he is running the whole thing - So don't blame me when...
