About Barb Williams
Personal: Born and raised in the East Bay, I succeeded from pre-school through the Berkeley school system to UC Berkeley.
W.V. Henderson Co.: I trained and began real estate with reportedly the oldest company in Silicon Valley. Bill Henderson was a highly respected appraiser and Expert Witness for the Courts. His emphasis was in commercial real estate and small developments. I built the residential side of the business while assisting Bill with commercial transactions and developments. I was also honored to serve as a Director with the Mountain View Board of Realtors.
Seville Properties: With Bill’s retirement, Seville kindly asked me to join their team, expanding my field of expertise.
C21 Seville-Contempo: In 1997, the Century 21 Network acquired Seville Properties. Under the Seville-Contempo brand, I averaged between 20-30 transactions a year. Because of this production, I was consistently awarded Top Achiever, Centurion, and Master by Century 21.
Coldwell Banker: In November of 2001, Seville-Contempo merged with Coldwell Banker. Since that time, I have been ranked consistently in the top 100 of Silicon Valley Realtors.
Alain Pinel Realtors/Compass Real Estate: In September 2008, I joined the prestigious Los Altos office of Alain Pinel Realtors (APR). In May 2019, APR joined forces with Compass Real Estate–an industry leader and technology powerhouse. Their advanced tools and resources enable me to make the search and sell experience for you, intelligent and seamless.
I have received the GRI (Graduate Real Estate Institute) designation, and have started work on CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation.
Currently, I serve on the District Council for Los Altos-Mountain View and chair the Local Government Affairs Committee of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors (SilVAR). Additionally, I chaired the SilVAR LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE for 2 years.
