Bill was born in Anchorage; Alaska where his father worked with the military in troubleshooting communications equipment. Growing tired of exceptionally long and cold winters, the family moved to the north Oregon coast, residing in Seaside until graduation from high school. Upon graduation; Bill was accepted into the American Culinary Federation Chef apprentice program in Portland Oregon. Working under Certified Master Chefs, Bill spent many years working at hotels and private clubs.
In 1985 Bill moved to San Diego California, and began a real estate career in downtown Del Mar at The Jelly Company- one of the premier high-end real estate companies at the time. After vacationing in California a number of times, the sunny climate finally won out over months of winter rain in Oregon. During almost 30 years of real estate Bill has worked at all of the top real estate companies, including Sun Harbor, Dyson & Dyson, Coldwell Banker, and for most of that time Prudential California Realty. In each company, Bill has achieved many awards for his sales skills, and for his contributions in teaching newer agents the ropes. Recognizing his great depth of knowledge, Bill has received letters of recommendation from some of the top attorneys in San Diego.
Bill’s experience is both solid and vast. Touching almost every phase of real estate over the years, he has sold new construction, custom homes, lots, land, apartments, foreclosures, short sales and income property. He assisted many people in buying their first home or income property walking them through the selection & purchase process, negotiating countless contracts. It would be very hard to find another agent who has the experience and knowledge Bill has gained over nearly 30 years in the real estate profession
Bill has a reputation for integrity, knowledge; and customer service to the extreme. He tells all his clients he “Has their back, no matter what happens!” and means it. Buyers & sellers know his calm, reassuring voice is always just a phone call away. Bill stepped in and helped complete a move for a client who came down with pneumonia a day before having to be out of the house. In another instance, elderly client was unable to continue living in a home, he helped arrange a move out, and managed a complete remodel for the home. Whatever it takes to help a client achieve their goals, he’s right there to help.
In 2008, working at Prudential California Realty, Bill met Dan Conway who thought he would be a perfect fit for the powerful real estate team he was building. Dan liked Bills reputation for going way beyond the call of duty and Bill liked the high energy and success that the team represented. The two became fast friends, working together on many real estate transactions, with Bill achieving the highest awards the Team has to offer. With Bills help, the Team consistently ranked among the top 1% of the 55,000 Prudential agents nationwide.
When not working Bill enjoys what can only be called a very active outdoor lifestyle. He enjoys skiing, water sports, running lots of miles through Torrey Pines State Park, and competitive cross-country running. He’s very active in supporting a variety of charities like World Vision, San Diego Food Bank, The Pious Union of St. Joseph, Salvation Army, Union Rescue Mission, American Prison Ministries, Bibles for the World, and many others. He also spends time talking and playing with residents of Brooke Dale Place and Emeritus Senior living.
