About Lisa

I am a native of Northern California and have been living in Chico for almost 25 years. I previously worked in the private country club industry as an Event Sales Director. During my last three years in that industry, I achieved the top sales director for the American Golf Corporation. I have now been a part of the local Real Estate Industry for the past 6 years starting my career in a boutique real estate company here in Chico and quickly learned the multi facets of Real Estate.

I was a top producer at Keller Williams within my first year with the company. I am an active member of my community being on the board of directors of Chico High School Sports Boosters, I am a co-founder and vice president of the Chico Business Group and I am a past member of The Chico Noon Exchange. I have two fantastic children and a remarkable husband that add spice and unpredictability to my life and I love it! I am honored to help you with any real estate needs that you might have!

Becky Williams
Keller Williams Realty Chico Area
About Becky

Real estate is one of the most exciting investments one can make. It should be a fun and rewarding experience. Butte County has a diverse range of choices from prestigious Chico golf courses to fertile agricultural properties in both Chico and Durham, as well as the shaded hills in Paradise. Whether you are looking to Sell or Buy a home, I will help make your next move a pleasant one! As a consistent achiever, I have garnered numerous awards, most recently: Top Producer Award - #1 Listing Agent in Butte County Elite - Northern California & Hawaii Region’s Top 1% ALC - Agent Leadership Council 2019 & 2020 Centurion and President’s Producer Award Quality Service Pinnacle Award When I work with sellers, I know how to align the market and leverage multiple platforms of buyers to achieve the highest price for your home. Rather than negotiating with just one buyer, my goal is to get buyers to negotiate among themselves and bring you the best value for your home. When my agents work with buyers, they want to see their long-term vision. What is important to each buyer is unique. For some, it is safety & security. For others, it may be prestige or privacy. They make sure they know the inventory, as well as knowing what is coming to the market ahead of time. Finding life balance is always important. My values are God, Family, and Business. Customers always come first, and I am committed to delivering an exceptional experience. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors. I love to hike, run, snow ski, & waterski.
