March 2016-Lock Richards is Named as a Top Advisor by SVN


Lock Richards Is Named as a Top Advisor by SVN® Grass Valley, California — 23 March, 2016 — Sperry Van Ness International Corporation (SVNIC), a full-service commercial real estate franchisor of the SVN® brand, has announced its top 100 grossing Advisors of 2015. The year-end rankings were presented in front of a packed crowd of over 400 SVN Managing Directors, Advisors and staff at the 2016 SVN Annual Conference recently held in San Diego, California. Individuals named as an SVN Top Advisor represent SVNIC’s highest performers from across the world.

Lock Richards, Managing Director at SVN – Highland Commercial, was ranked as the number 66 SVN Top Advisor for overall performance in 2015. Lock, who specializes in office, industrial, retail and multi-family sales and leasing throughout Western Nevada County, CA, is excited to be ranked among SVNIC’s elite top producers on an international level.

Lock noted, “I was very pleased to make the Top 100 (representing the top 10% of all brokers at SVN), especially since I work in a tertiary rural market that is so much smaller than the majority of my colleagues. I appreciate that my market expertise has been beneficial to so many, and I want to offer a huge “thank you” to all of my clients!”

“These dedicated Advisors truly represent that through hard work and collaboration anything is impossible,” says SVNIC President and CEO Kevin Maggiacomo. “By actively embodying the SVN brand’s shared value principle, they create results not only for their clients, but for their marketplace, workplace and communities as well.”

SVN is the only major commercial real estate brand that markets all of its qualified properties to the entire brokerage and investment community. Participating in approximately $10.1 billion in sales and leasing transactions in 2015, SVN Advisors shared commission fees with co-operating brokers in order to close more deals in less time and at the right value for clients. Advisors also reap the benefits of our SVN Live™ Open Sales Meetings, cloud-based leading-edge technology, and national product councils. This open, transparent and collaborative approach to real estate is the SVN Difference.
