CR Luxury Properties is a division of Cole & Riese Real Estate Group and a collaboration between top producing Realtors® Jill Cole and Michael Riese. Both Jill and Michael, native to the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Los Gatos area, are both second-generation Los Gatos Realtors® and combined offer over 3 decades of Real Estate experience. Jill is a product of Loma Prieta Elementary and CT English Middle School, while Michael was born in Aldercroft Heights before moving to Los Gatos where he attended Van Meter Elementary.


For decades the name Cole has been synonymous with living in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Jill and Nancy Cole have had the longest tenure as a top-producing team of Realtors® dedicated to selling the mountain lifestyle, and continue to offer unsurpassed service to their clients. Selling in the mountains requires intimate knowledge of rural property values and systems, something that comes with years of experience.

Both Michael and Jill work in Los Gatos and market homes throughout the Bay Area. Michael has predominantly focused on the Los Gatos and Saratoga areas, where he has consistently been a top-producing Realtor® with an average sale price of $2.9 Million.


Many promise…. few deliver. There has always been a synergy between the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Town of Los Gatos. Top-rated schools and quality of life are drivers for both communities, while different property values and land opportunities draw buyers in either direction. CR Luxury Properties offers the unique ability to bridge the divide between the mountains and Silicon Valley. Because we sell heavily in both areas, our marketing and reach is unsurpassed. And because we focus on Luxury Real Estate, your property gets the level of marketing and exposure it deserves.


With unsurpassed knowledge and experience in selling both mountain and Silicon Valley Real Estate, CR Luxury Properties gives buyers unparalleled access and representation regardless of the target area. And as a member of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, we have access to the Bay Area’s largest network of off-market exclusive listings, a distinct advantage in a supply-constrained housing market.
