Opt Real Estate

In the world of real estate, the transition from a trailblazing individual to a trailblazing leader is a transformative journey marked by innovation, perseverance and a relentless commitment to redefining industry norms. Drew Coleman has redefined this standard in his unwavering dedication to customer care.

“Beyond the transactions and the financial implications, it’s the lasting relationships built, the trust earned, and the opportunity to play a pivotal role in the narratives of their lives that truly resonates,” says Coleman. “Every handshake and every smile at the end of a closing reminds me of the tangible difference I make in the community, and it fuels my passion for real estate every single day.”

Coleman boasts over two decades of active involvement in industry organizations at local, state and national levels. In 2023, his leadership at Opt drove extraordinary growth, propelling sales past $200 million with a team of 46 members. Within this expansion, he confidently steered Opt’s operations while simultaneously assuming the pivotal role of chairman at RMLS. This past year, Coleman led a comprehensive revamp of the local MLS system, underscoring his commitment to elevating industry benchmarks.

Coleman also played a pivotal role in national real estate initiatives, serving as the vice chair of RPAC Fundraising Trustees and contributing significantly to the NAR Board of Directors and the RPAC President’s Circle Task Force.

“The most rewarding part of my career is the profound impact I can make on people’’s lives,” says Coleman. “From imprinting on our agents how to better their own situation by serving others, to the clients they work with, by guiding them through one of the most significant decisions of their lives, homeownership.”
