NAPLES (May 9, 2016) – Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Naples 5th Avenue office was recently approved as a Blue Zone Certified Office. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to commemorate the occasion. Nancy MacDonald, the office’s branch manager, led the movement to encourage a healthy lifestyle.


“I was introduced to the Blue Zones Project through a Naples real estate blogger,” said Nancy MacDonald. “As a group, I realized that there were many ways we could implement healthy choices in our daily work routine.  I think most of the participants would agree that we have stopped allowing “routine” to dictate our lives and have begun making healthier decisions.”

As a part of the Blue Zone movement, the office followed a set of checklist items to ensure a healthy lifestyle could be adopted in clear, measurable ways. Out of 76 sales associates in the office, 43 signed the pledge to lead a healthier lifestyle. In addition, the office was designated as a tobacco-free zone, a bike rack was installed, nutritious food options have been offered at meetings, and smaller serving dishes have been provided.

To encourage exercise and volunteerism, a walking team has been organized to meet three times per week and volunteer opportunities have been sought out.

“We are very active with the Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate CARES the charitable arm of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate CARES works to support the Humane Society Naples, the Shelter for Abused Women and Children, St. Matthew’s House, Ronald McDonald House of Southwest Florida and others.
