Zephyr Real Estate Announces Top Producer of the Year

San Francisco, CA – January 12, 2012 – Danielle Lazier has been named Zephyr Real Estate’s Top Producer of 2011. Having sold 60 properties during the year, Lazier ranks among the top one-half of one percent of real estate agents in all of San Francisco.

Lazier is a long-time blogger and, in fact, has been blogging since the concept first emerged. Her SFHotlist.com blog is widely read and respected, and is often used as a source in industry news. Her crisp and savvy insights are not just about properties but also about the distinctive lifestyle of San Francisco residents. As she says, “It’s not just about square footage; it’s about the life you want while living in that square footage.”

Reared in both New Jersey and Texas, Lazier has lived in San Francisco since 1999 and can’t imagine living anywhere else. With a degree from Wesleyan University (CT) and a dedication to continuing studies in real estate, management, business, marketing and strategic planning, she is always seeking to innovate, improve and grow. Lazier is quick to point out the value of team work and is proud of her team’s knowledge of marketing, technology, properties, experience and drive. She is certain that the future of the real estate industry will rely largely on team efforts.

Lazier is a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). This is the highest designation awarded to sales associates in residential real estate. The CRS designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. Currently, only one in every 25 licensees is a Certified Residential Specialist.

To quote recent satisfied clients, Roxanne and Neil:

“Danielle represented us on both sides of our recent property transactions and we couldn’t be happier with her high level of service. She’s tuned into the macro factors affecting the residential space and really has her finger on the pulse of local dynamics. Most important, Danielle applied her broad knowledge to our unique needs; she was able to gauge our desires and concerns and then create a plan to satisfy them. She guided us through some very choppy waters (both personal anxieties and a shifting credit/finance market) with patience and tact. She’s direct, efficient, and driven by solutions. For us, Danielle solidified her reputation as a trusted advisor. P.S. Her marketing prowess is impressive – our Mission condo brought in 8 offers and sold for more than 13% over list price.”

“Danielle is a shining testimony to how dedication, organization, preparation and intuitive skills relate directly to success,” commented Randall Kostick, Zephyr’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are delighted to share her success.”

Lazier works from Zephyr’s Noe Valley office at 4040 24th Street. She is a member in good standing in the San Francisco Association, California Association and National Association of REALTORS®. She may be reached at 415.695.8805 x196 or danielle@sfhotlist.com.
