Born and raised in North Attleboro, Bill struck out on his own after high school traveling extensively through Europe. Upon returning to the United States, he lived in upstate New York, Nantucket Island, Cape Cod, and Palm Beach continuing to satisfy his wanderlust. He acquired valuable life experiences, met many interesting people, then went on to attend Cape Cod Community College, Assumption College, Harvard University, and Northeastern University. Those accomplishments, jobs, people, and places have contributed toward the person he is today.

Since 2002, Bill’s diverse residential sales experiences involved complex estate sales, sales involving multiple owners,1031-exchanges, co-ops (very rare in greater-Boston), condos, single-family and multi-family homes throughout Massachusetts.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

“I’m a huge fan of architecture and visit Newport, RI as often as I can to tour the mansions, getting to know them inside and out. I’m also an avid rower, having rowed in college and for numerous clubs nationally. I’ve coached crew as well.”

Do you have a favorite charity?

“I have been involved with Community Rowing of Boston since 1988, reaching out to minority and disadvantaged youths to teach them how to row, often qualifying them for college scholarships.”

What is your favorite thing about your job?

“I enjoy problem-solving. I’m drawn toward complicated and challenging people as well as their similarly complicated transactions. I like breaking down difficult elements of a sale or a purchase to their simplest form, thus reducing the stress of all involved.”
