Here's a short history of the Coldwell-Banker company:
The company was launched in 1906. After the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fires, real estate agent Colbert Coldwell formed a new real estate company.
Coldwell disapproved of the then-common practice of real estate agents acquiring properties for themselves, often from uninformed sellers at ridiculously low prices, and then reselling them for huge profits. He and two partners formed the company of Tucker, Lynch and Coldwell on August 27, 1906.
In 1913, Benjamin Arthur Banker joined the firm as a salesman and became a partner in 1914. He and Coldwell remained active in the company throughout their lives.
And after they died.....?
This could have been a segment on 'Night Gallery', Rod Serling's classic follow-up to 'The Twilight Zone'. In Toobworld, the spirits of Mr. Coldwell and Mr. Banker remained on Earth Prime-Time, somehow connected to their portraits in the company's main office. I've seen this happen before in another TV blipvert in which the portraits of a corporation's past presidents comment on the young up-and-comer as he leaves the building. I believe it was an ad for a car.
This could also be linked to the TV series 'The Ghost And Mrs. Muir'. Perhaps Captain Daniel Gregg was "anchored" (sorry about that) to Gull Cottage in Maine due to his portrait.
