Windermere Real Estate, a family-run firm, has acquired Lyon Real Estate, the leading independent residential real estate company in the region.
Lyon Real Estate, the area's driving autonomous private land organization, has been obtained by Windermere Real Estate.

Lyon Real Estate has been an installation in the more prominent Sacramento locale for a very long time with 800+ specialists who produced over $2.86 billion in deals a year ago. Windermere Real Estate was established in 1972 in Seattle and is worked by second-age authority Geoff Wood, Jill Jacobi Wood, and OB Jacobi. The two organizations are individuals from the lofty Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International® networks which is the way the heads of the two organizations initially met.

Under the conditions of the securing, Lyon Real Estate will keep on working under its name and brand and will keep up the current administration group, including president and head working official Pat Shea.

Lyon Real Estate specialists and their clients will profit by Windermere's improved showcasing assets, proficient turn of events, movement and reference administrations, just as an in-house boss financial expert.

“This new chapter for Lyon Real Estate is a perfect fit when taking into account our mutual values of superior customer satisfaction, and long-term relationships with our clients, agents, and community,” says Laura Lyon, former Chair of the Board and the daughter of William L. Lyon, the company’s founder. “The Jacobi-Wood family brings a new and highly engaged second generation of family leadership that is committed to growth and giving back.”

Shea describes this union as the blending of two accomplished and well-respected real estate brands. “We will each continue to maintain our own identity,” he says. “Our company and agents will have the absolute best of both worlds.”

Shea added that over the years, Lyon Real Estate has been approached by a number of suitors seeking a strategic growth opportunity. “This timing is right because Windermere is well suited to maintain the company’s legacy and grow it in the future,” said Shea. “The Lyon family’s first priority is that they leave the company they built and have run for the past 75 years in the best possible hands for the long term,” he added.

OB Jacobi, Windermere co-president states, “We’ve been looking for the right opportunity to grow our network in Northern California and chose Lyon Real Estate because of the strength of their brand, leadership team, and our aligned culture and values. We are fully committed to supporting this great agent network, as well as the admirable work of the Lyon Cares Foundation.”
