Lyon Real Estate welcomes three new agents at its Davis real estate office: Martha Bernauer, Kim Merrell Lamb and Chris Snow. All previously worked for Coldwell Banker-Doug Arnold Real Estate.
Bernauer moved to Davis in 1962 and has an extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods, schools and Yolo County community. She is married to Marc Hicks, another longtime Davisite, and they have three children and one grandson.
Before going into real estate, she was a manager at Caffé Italia and worked at Lamppost Pizza. In 1999, she found her true calling at Lyon Real Estate and has returned to the company after working elsewhere.
Bernauer has a passion for fundraising for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, a charity dear to her heart as her niece was diagnosed with leukemia 10 years ago. In the past four years, she have helped raise over $65,000 for this cause and was honored to be named Women of the Year in 2010 because of her efforts. This year, she will host her fifth annual beer garden and barbecue on Picnic Day in the parking lot behind 401 Second St., with all proceeds going to leukemia and lymphoma research.
Lamb moved to Davis in 2001 after living on a small lake in upstate New York for more than 20 years. She owned a flower shop and a home accessories and interior design shop there. Her career in real estate began in 2002 and she was named Rookie of the Year in 2003 and then a top producer thereafter.
Describing herself as “a bit of a serial remodeler,” she has owned or lived in seven homes in Davis, West Sacramento, midtown Sacramento and Land Park in the past 12 years. She has two grown sons.
Snow, a resident of Davis since 1970, has worked as a real estate agent since 1998 when joined with his mother, Phyllis Snow. He also has a construction background and contractor’s license. Chris and his wife Lauren have two sons.
Lyon Real Estate is the largest brokerage in the greater Sacramento Valley and foothills, serving the area for six decades. More than 900 agents in 17 Lyon offices serve the five-county region.
