Neil Lyon has consecutively been one of the top producing brokers in Santa Fe since 2002. 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 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 ability to get difficult transactions completed are his hallmarks, evidenced by his high level of productivity, which since January 1995 has been over $468M in closed sales volume. An impressive record for a market where median residential sale prices are approximately $425K. Neil’s business is equally split between working with sellers and buyers. Of the buyers that he works with, over 75% are either relocating to Santa Fe or purchasing a vacation home.
Neil was honored as Santa Fe’s 2001 Realtor of the Year. He has addressed real estate brokers from around the world at various Sotheby’s International Realty conferences over many years. 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. Neil has earned professional designations that include Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and Graduate Realtor’s Institute (GRI). He earned a bachelor’s degree in Real Estate Finance from the University of Oregon. Neil was also a Master Instructor for the Real Estate Brokerage Managers Council in the 1980s and 1990s.
Neil and his wife, Cindy, have two children. Their daughter is a graduate of the University of Richmond and Washington University in St. Louis, where she earned a master’s degree in Public Health. She is now a research scientist in the Pacific Northwest. Their son is a graduate of Dartmouth College with a degree in earth sciences and now lives in the Northeast working as a geologist.
