Bill has an unusual commitment and unwavering dedication to each of his clients, a business practice that has generated the aforementioned accolades. He’d actually be the first one to point out it is the support people he is affiliated with that allow for the praise, and acknowledgment. "I am surrounded by the very best in each of the specialized fields my practice takes me in to. I have the very best attorneys, a phenomenal CPA, the very best financial adviser, mortgage brokers, insurance brokers, architects, civil engineers, still photographers for residential shots and specialty photographers for things like aerial photographs, title and escrow people, contractors and the list goes on from there. The bottom line is in my practice as a Realtor, I have accumulated what I believe to be the very best support team in the industry and I want to share it with you."
