Coldwell Banker Real Estate Unveils "Home's Best Friend" Commercial on 87th Academy Awards Show

Event kicks off the "Homes for Dogs Project" with campaign aiming to find Forever Homes for 20,000 adoptable dogs this year

As every dog lover knows, there is nothing quite like coming home after a long day, opening the door, and being greeted by man’s best friend. On Sunday, Feb. 22, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC will spotlight this exact moment as it debuts its new national television commercial on ABC during The 87th Academy Awards.

Capturing the immeasurable joy pets bring to our home, the 30-second ad spot features real rescue dogs, such as Max, who was adopted in 2014 after being spotted on To help more dogs like Max find a forever home, the Coldwell Banker® brand is simultaneously announcing the first ever “Homes for Dogs Project.” By teaming up with, the largest nonprofit pet adoption website in North America, the campaign aims to find homes for 20,000 dogs in 2015. 

“Our previous spots have showcased the joy of coming home, so this year it made sense to portray who’s on the other side of the door,” said Sean Blankenship, chief marketing officer for Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “With more than 43 million U.S. households having dogs, there is no question that our pets go hand-in-hand with our love of home. The ‘Homes for Dogs Project’ takes this a step further, allowing our affiliated companies to join us in helping adoptable dogs find homes.” 

About the “Home’s Best Friend” Commercial 

The new television spot opens with an originally produced country song slowly playing over images of dogs longingly waiting for their owners to return home. The mood and music quickly pick up tempo as the dogs see their owners, capturing the magical feeling both pet and owner share the moment the door swings open. It is the third straight year Coldwell Banker has launched a national advertising spot during The Academy Awards.

The “Home’s Best Friend” spot was conceived by Siltanen & Partners, the national advertising agency for Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. It was directed by Kat Coiro, under the direction of Executive Creative Director, Rob Siltanen. The full commercial, a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the ad and more information on the “Homes for Dogs Project” are available at
