Surprise for Dorathe Catlin!

June 7, 2012

Yesterday, June 6th, staff and agents of Coldwell Banker Gonella Realty gathered in the parking lot of the Merced office to enjoy a delicious lunch offered in appreciation for all of our hard work and dedication – or so we were lead to believe.

In actuality, the lunch was a surprise party to honor Dorathe Catlin – celebrating her 5th anniversary as a mortgage consultant with Coldwell Banker Mortgage!

  Coldwell Banker Mortgage  Regional Manager, Paul Wirth, and Regional Vice President, Steve McGough had contacted Loren Gonella one month prior to set up the staging of the charade.  Flyers were sent to all of Gonella Realty for an “Office Appreciation Lunch” with reminders sent a few days before.  To ensure that Dorathe would attend, Loren asked her to present a small speech honoring the manager of our Atwater office.

After giving everyone a few moments to eat and chat, Loren asked Dorathe to come to the front to give her special presentation.  As Dorathe was about to start speaking, her manager, Paul Wirth interrupted stating that he had a little announcement to make beforehand.  He then proceeded to reveal that this lunch was actually sponsored by CB Mortgage in appreciation of Dorathe.  She could not have been more surprised!

Coldwell Banker Gonella Realty would also like to add our congratulations to Mrs. Catlin, as well as our heartfelt appreciation for her partnership.  Here’s to many more years!
