About Neil Lyon
Neil has been a top producing broker in Santa Fe for many years. He has been the most productive broker in the majority of the past 10 years. A licensed real estate agent since 1975 and a licensed broker since 1979, Neil moved to Santa Fe in 1993 and was the managing broker of Sotheby’s International Realty until 2002, when he stepped down to devote 100% of his time and energy to working with sellers and buyers.
Neil has been associated with Sotheby’s International Realty since 1984, with the exception of a 12 month period, when he was president and CEO of a 15 office real estate brokerage in Fairfield County, Connecticut. The sale of that company reunited Neil and Sotheby’s International Realty in 1991.
Neil specializes in luxury homes and building sites in and around Santa Fe. His serious work ethic and his ability to get difficult transactions completed are his hallmarks, evidenced by his high level of productivity, which since January 2005 has been over $375,000,000 in closed sales volume. An impressive record for a market whose median residential sales price is approximately $300,000.
Neil was honored as Santa Fe’s 2001 Realtor of the Year. Neil also served as the President of the Real Estate Brokerage Manager’s Council in 1992 and Chairman of the Realtors National Marketing Institute in 1995.
