Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the Bay Area’s leading real estate services company, announced today that Los Gatos REALTOR® Bill Lister and his team ranked in the top 10 for the company in sales last year.

The Bill Lister Team, affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Los Gatos office, sold more than $105.7 million in real estate in 2015, placing it ninth among all affiliated company agents in Northern California. The sales associates surpassed more than 3,900 affiliated agents from Lake Tahoe to the Monterey Peninsula and 85,000 independent Coldwell Banker sales associates around the world.

“Bill Lister and his entire team are outstanding real estate professionals in every sense of the word,” said Mike James, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “They have earned a reputation for their integrity, professionalism, market knowledge and superior customer service. We’re proud to have them affiliated with Coldwell Banker.”

Doug Evans, manager of the Los Gatos office, said Lister is in high demand from South Bay homebuyers and sellers.

“When it comes to marketing exceptional properties or helping buyers find that perfect home, Bill and his team are among the very best REALTORS® in Silicon Valley,” he said. “They truly know the local market better than just about anyone. We congratulate them on this well-deserved honor.”

Lister was recognized for his accomplishment in a special Coldwell Banker awards video and will be part of a celebration event at the Wente Brothers Vineyard in July. He has also been extended an invitation to Coldwell Banker’s Residential Brokerage’s Top 1% Retreat, which will be held in late October at the Montage Beverly Hills.

A real estate veteran with more than 22 years of experience, Lister has sold a wide variety of properties, from condominiums to multi-million-dollar estates. Before entering real estate sales he was an appraiser for 10 years.

Throughout his career Lister has received a number of professional honors, including the prestigious International President’s Premier designation – the highest awarded by the company. He is a member of the Peninsula West Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.

Born on Long Island, New York, Lister has lived in California since early childhood. A resident of Santa Clara County for most his life, he considers himself a native of the South Bay.
