Coldwell Banker Elite names manager for commercial division

Ben Keddie

Coldwell Banker Elite has hired a well-known local real estate agent to head its expanding commercial division.

Ben Keddie has been named vice president of Coldwell Banker Elite Commercial, said Kevin Breen, the firm’s owner. His new job starts Feb. 1.

Keddie will manage Coldwell Banker Elite’s commercial division, which made itself into one of the largest commercial real estate firms in the Fredericksburg area with a deal late last year to acquire Silver Commercial Brokerage. The firm’s commercial division will be run out of leased space on the first floor of the Silver Cos.’ headquarters in Central Park.

Keddie, a Virginia Tech graduate and Fredericksburg native, has spent the past five years as a commercial sales and leasing agent with Virginia Properties Inc.

Keddie has been active in the local business community as founding chairman of the Next Generation of Business Leaders and a participant and mentor in the Leadership Fredericksburg program.
