Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the South Bay’s leading real estate services company, announced today that venerable Los Altos Realtor Royce Cablayan ranked as one of the company’s top agents in Silicon Valley and nationwide for sales last year.

Cablayan was involved in nearly $70 million in real estate sales in 2011, which ranked him seventh for all of Northern California, outpacing more than 3,600 Coldwell Banker agents from Monterey to Lake Tahoe.

In addition, Cablayan finished among the top 1 percent of agents nationally and worldwide for Coldwell Banker, surpassing more than 87,000 sales associates in 49 countries for the world’s largest real estate company.

A 20-plus year veteran Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Cablayan has consistently been among the company’s top 10 agents in Northern California. He has sold a wide variety of properties ranging from small homes to multi-million-dollar estates. Over his career, he has helped clients buy or sell more than 2,500 properties. In addition he serves as sales manager for the Los Altos office.

Fred Hibbert, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Altos, added, “Beyond his sales expertise, there are few people who match Royce’s integrity, character and genuine concern for his clients and the community in general. He gives so much back to the community and is such an important part of this local area.”

Cablayan was recognized for his accomplishments during a company ceremony last month at the Coldwell Banker Generation Blue Experience in New Orleans.

Over the years, Cablayan has earned a number of professional honors, including consistently being one of Coldwell Banker’s top 10 agents nationwide, as well as being the number one agent in Silicon Valley five times and top agent in Northern California twice in the past decade. Additionally, he has been named Realtor of the Year by the San Jose Business Journal.

Aside from his real estate accomplishments, Cablayan has been recognized for his ongoing support of community organizations. Among other things, he has been instrumental in helping disadvantaged children and low-income families in Santa Clara County. He annually heads up Los Altos office’s “Giving Tree” program, which collects gifts for needy individuals.

Cablayan is an active member of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.
