Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the Bay Area’s leading real estate services company, announced today that Menlo Park REALTOR® Billy McNair has ranked as the number one individual affiliated agent for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage on the Peninsula with $143.3 million in sales volume last year.

A highly-regarded luxury real estate specialist, McNair also ranked second in Northern California for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage individual affiliated agents and sixth in North America. His sales total 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.

“Billy is successful in part because he brings a unique and extensive skill set and expertise to real estate clients,” said Mike James, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “He’s not only a top REALTOR®, he is also an accomplished former CEO and a licensed attorney, which enable him to guide clients through the legal intricacies of home sales as well as serving as a strong negotiator to get them the best deal possible.”

Wendy McPherson, manager of Coldwell Banker’s Menlo Park office, said McNair is also known for going above and beyond for his clients.

“Billy works very hard to get outstanding results for his clients, whether it’s the most effective way to market a home or helping buyers determine the right investment for their next property,” she said. “He really is one of the go-to agents when it comes to buying and selling luxury homes on the Peninsula. We congratulate him on this well-earned achievement.”

McNair 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.

In addition to his law degree, McNair holds an MBA degree from Santa Clara University, which gives him a strong financial background to analyze market conditions, investment opportunities and macro and micro economic trends.

Having lived on the Peninsula for the past 35 years, McNair has an intimate knowledge of the real estate history, trends and cycles that have influenced the unique Bay Area housing market over the past three decades. He enjoys living in the local the community with his wife, two daughters and son.
