Prior to entering the commercial real estate field, Bill owned a financial services firm dealing in the marketing of insurance, registered securities and limited real estate partnerships. Today, with over 32 years of experience in the industry, Bill specializes in the sale and leasing of industrial and warehouse properties, and in the sale and development of industrial park sites.
