Bill Riss, owner and CEO of Coldwell Banker Bain, a leading provider of real estate brokerage services throughout the Pacific Northwest and a market leader in home sales in 2018*, has once again been named to the 2019 Swanepoel Power 200, a list of the most powerful people in residential real estate. Riss, owner and CEO of Landover Corporation, a holding company for Coldwell Banker Bain that operates 32 offices and posts $6 billion in annual sales, this year ranks 50th, up 13 from last year’s 63rd-place spot.

The Swanepoel Power 200 recognizes the industry’s most innovative and influential leaders, key decision-makers, trendsetters and emerging leaders. Honorees are selected based on, among other factors, significance and contribution to the industry, geographic reach, growth potential and more. The ranking criteria can be seen here.

“It’s always an honor, and one I don’t take for granted, to be recognized as one of the many leaders in our industry, recognizing contributions to work and an industry that I love. But my success has always been a consequence of the combined talents and dedication of the professional brokers I’ve been privileged to work with,” Riss said.

Riss, a Seattle native and University of Washington graduate with a background in mortgage and commercial banking, land development, new construction and brokerage management, is one of the most knowledgeable and resourceful real estate executives in the area.
