4B Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter im M. Kate West Staff Writer Lake Almanor Brokers is an independent brokerage firm opened by partners Billy Taylor and Jay Sabelman in June 2012. Between the two, they have a combined experi- ence of 25 years in the real es- tate field. Opening the brokerage firm was a long- time dream for both Sabel- man and Taylor, who are also longtime friends and fishing partners. In addition to their own ex- perience, the world of real es- tate is not new to the two and likely plain old osmosis could add years to their current ex- periences. Sabelman's mother, Darcy White, has been a Realtor in Chico for more than 25 years. ,Bill Taylor, Billy's dad, was the first real estate bro- ker in.Lake Almanor. He rep- resented Ed Clifford in the first sales and marketing of the Lake Almanor Country Club in the 1950s," Sabelman said. The firm specializes in resi- dential, commercial and land sales as well as vacation rental property management. Lake Almanor Brokers also offers vacationers and prospective clients an office away from their own office or home. Sabelman said such a service could include desk space, free Wi-Fi and scan- ning and faxing capabilities. "In addition to listing prop- erties and working with buy- ers and sellers we also offer free comparative market analysis, the tool that is used to determine the correct, ap- proximate value of any given property," he said. Enhancing the full menu of services offered are 10 agents, including Taylor and Sabel- man and office manager Kalah Wann. The additional slate of seasoned Realtors and PROFILES IN BUSI ,IESS LAKE ALMANOR BROKERS brokers associated with the firm are Arlie Holland, Joe Gilmour, Kyle McNeill, Linda Gillam, Sadie Benny, Shelley Ceaglio, Stacey Prior and Todd Smith. In responding to what he would consider the firm's key to success, Sabelman said, "Billy and I like to think of us as regular guys and expect the same of our Realtors. "We are hometown proud while being experts in mar- keting and technology within the real estate industry. "In a real estate transac- tion, you often find yourself in the position of team cap- tain. "You have to have people skills, negotiation skills, mar- ket knowledge and are fre- quently required to give situ- ational advice in what can be extremely fluid circum- stances. "Being a good listener to both the buyer and the seller: that makes me a good Realtor. Hearing how they feel helps us to validate their position in writipg, in a contract, in a negotiation. Our success all comes back, it all comes back to people skills." Taylor and Sabelman are invested members of the com- munity and show their sup- port by volunteering with lo- cal organizations, such as the Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce. They also coach all types of school sports, including golf, skiing and basketball. Sabelman's dedication to the industry was demonstrat- ed by his four-year term as a Name: Lake Almanor Brokers Owners: Billy Taylor and Jay Sabelman Address: 452 Peninsula Drive, Lake Almanor Telephone: 596-3303 Hours: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. seven days a week Website: lakealmanorbrokers.corn Satellite office: 119 Main St. in Chester; 258-3303 director on the Plumas Asso- ciation of Realtors board of directors, of which he served as president in 2007 and again in 2008.
