Coldwell Banker Office Earns Highest Distinction
Coldwell Banker's Westfield office was recently selected as a Coldwell Banker Premier Office, the highest honor given to Coldwell Banker real estate offices which consistently dem- onstrate exceptional performance and dedication. This is the 10th year the office has been given this distinguished award.
"The Premier Office designation is the most impressive honor among indi- vidual Coldwell Banker offices," said Alex Perriello, President and Chief Executive Officer.
"Marilyn Kelly, Manager, and the members of the sales associate team in the Westfield office have established a standard of excellence for offices throughout the Coldwell Banker sys- tem," he continued.
The Westfield office has been set- ting and breaking records since 1986, when it was first recognized as the number one sales office. Thirteen unprecedented years later, it is still number one in the corporation, as well as being number one in the area
and the local Board of Realtors, Mr. Perriello revealed.
"Our office is comprised of the very best sales associates in the business. Proudly we boast the only five Gold Level Million Dollar Club members on the Board of Realtors, as well as 17 Silver Level Million Dollar Club mem- bers and a grand total of 38 Million Dollar Club members," lauded Ms. Kelly.
"This melange par excellence is one of the reasons our office has continu- ously had such success and will con- tinue to do so," she added.
The office is located at 209 Central Avenue in Westfield, and may be reached by calling (908) 233-5555.

Call (908) 232-4407 String Quartet Inspires Teen
To Compose Musical Piece YOUNG COMPOSER…Linden High School sophomore Adler Perotte, center,
is pictured with the Cassatt String Quartet following their performance of a composition he wrote for them. The quartet visited Linden High School, Soehl Middle School and McManus Middle School in Linden as part of the Westfield Symphony Orchestra's String Master Teachers Program. This was the fifth year the ensemble worked with students in the Linden school district.
Adler Perotte, a 15-year-old sopho- more at Linden High School, recently composed a piece for The Cassatt String Quartet, which visited his school as part of the Westfield Symphony Orchestra's (WSO) String Master Teachers Program.
The Cassatt String Quartet provided 12 master classes and performances for middle and high school students in Linden through the String Master Teach- ers Program.
The program, which has been in ex- istence for five years, provides for the in-school quartet residency from No-
vember through May. Adler, who has been working with the quartet for two years, has been study- ing violin for seven years, piano for 9˝ years, and music composition for four years.
The String Master Teachers Program has had a significant impact on the number of students beginning and con- tinuing the study of orchestral instru- ments, according to WSO spokes- woman Linda Onorevole.
Inspired by the quartet, Adler com- posed the piece specifically for them. Throughout the year, the quartet had numerous run-throughs of the work at all stages, and performed it on May 28 when they visited the Linden High School students for the final time this season.
WSO Music Director and Conductor David Wroe expressed his delight in the work of the students and the String Master Teachers Program.
"I want to make (the Westfield Sym- phony) relevant to the community," WSO Music Director and Conductor David Wroe remarked about the work of the students and the String Master Teachers Program. "It is supported by the community and must give back to it. Education is the way."
