Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage announced today that Lisa Cassara, a top producing sales associate in its Gilroy office, was honored with the Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® (SCCAOR) 2011 President’s Choice Award.  

Cassara was chosen for and presented the award by 2011 SCCAOR President, Michael Sibilia, at the organization’s annual installation dinner held Thursday, January 26 at the Silver Creek Valley Country Club in San Jose.  The award recognizes the SCCAOR member who most demonstrates the principles of good real estate practices, provides excellent service to the board and the community, and promotes homeownership and property rights. 

Among her many accomplishments, the award recognized Cassara for her involvement in the SCCAOR re-districting project – an effort to create subset groups of the larger association throughout Santa Clara County for a more localized focus on real estate.

“I am thrilled to see Lisa honored by SCCAOR for her service,” said Nancy Robinson, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Gilroy office.  “She is an incredible activist and proven leader in the real estate community.  She is committed to our industry and is helping to do great things for her fellow Realtors here in South County.  I congratulate her for being selected for the SCCAOR President’s Choice Award.”

Prior to this most recent award, Cassara was named the 2008 Realtor of the Year by the South County Realtors Alliance (SCRA) and served as the organization’s 2011 president.  She is currently serving a three year term on the board of directors for SCCAOR. 

Beyond real estate, she is active with the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce and serves on the committee for the Gilroy office’s fundraising efforts during Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s annual Habitat for Humanity fundraiser. 

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Gilroy office is located at 8050 Santa Theresa Blvd. #210 and can be reached at 408.848.2800.  Cassara may be reached directly at 408.710.6085 and via e-mail at
