)-- Hill & Co. Real Estate, a premier brokerage for San Francisco residential real estate, announced recently that its founder, Joseph V. Costello, Jr., has been inducted into the Bay Area Real Estate Hall of Fame. The induction took place at a Luxury Marketing Council of San Francisco event, and current Hill & Co. president Jay Costello accepted the award on behalf of his now deceased father.
In addition, at the same event three Hill & Co. agents were recognized for being among the best REALTORS® in the Bay Area. The rankings were established by REAL Trends in partnership with the Wall Street Journal, and are based on transactions and sales volume. Annie Williams ranked 27th among Bay Area REALTORS®, and 6th among San Francisco REALTORS®. The team of Joan Gordon and David Cohen ranked 51st among Bay Area real estate teams, and 11th among San Francisco teams.
Joe Costello, or “Mr. C.” as he was lovingly called, founded Hill & Company in 1956, and built a robust brokerage – attracting some of San Francisco’s top agents while providing residential real estate services to some of the City’s wealthiest individuals and families.
A proud veteran, Mr. Costello passed away on Memorial Day, May 25, 2015.
Mr. C. grew up in San Francisco. A born extrovert, he loved conversation and seemed to know everybody in town. He was charming, charismatic and bright. He loved a good story and loved telling them. He could converse easily with world and industry leaders at the Bohemian Club, and find equal delight talking with strangers on the street.
