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. My favorite activities in my free time would be outdoors. I love to hike, run, snow ski, waterski, and I love to get out on my paddle boat!

It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.
