About Us

Hill & Co. Realtors was founded in 1950 by Ken Hill and has remained family owned and operated to this day.

In 1976, Hill & Co. was inherited by son, Fred Hill, and has since been passed on to the leadership of its third generation, Marianne Hill.

In addition to the family heritage, Hill & Co. has also maintained its personal touch as a small business.  Hill & Co.’s reputation of excellence is illustrated by its long-standing relationships within the community resulting in repeat clients and referrals.


Bess Baker, now Bess Baker-Whitaker, began working as Secretary-Receptionist for Ken Hill and Fred Hill at Ken Hill Realty on Murphy Avenue in April 1961. Fifty-one years later she is still working for Fred Hill’s daughter, Marianne with the company name of Hill & Co. Realtors, as Office Administrator and Realtor, through three generations of Hills!  Sunnyvale has certainly changed during those years and even though way beyond retirement age, she has not yet considered giving up her daily employment…may be looking forward to the fourth generation!

We enjoyed celebrating her accomplishment the end of April!!!
