With a warm smile and comfortable manner, along with his Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty Team, he will make your real estate transaction both enjoyable and rewarding. He understands that the key to success in today’s market is a keen focus on the value of digital marketing and the need to remain current with the fast moving pace of social media, online exposure, and active broker networking. William offers seasoned council, solid business acumen and a lifelong familiarity with the Monterey Peninsula. With an impressive resume of success in the spheres of sales and business management and an Entrepreneurial spirit that clearly exceeds most in this industry, he is well versed in the areas of consolidating, strengthening, and then expanding recovered and most often profitable real estate. An exceptional team effort has been an essential contributing factor to his ongoing success. As his retail businesses matured, William turned his attention increasingly to his first and most ardent business interest... the successful marketing of residential and commercial real estate on the Monterey Peninsula. Having opened his first real estate office in 1990, William and his lovely wife were the owner/brokers of the two Prudential California Realty Offices in Carmel and Monterey. He went on to sell his real estate company and join Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty in November 2006. He was one of the more accomplished Realtors in Prudential Real Estate Network and had been consistently ranked among the Top 100 agents internationally; including ranking as #2 selling agent in Northern California and #11 internationally. Let his years of experience as a Broker be a testament to his abilities to represent you and his personal closing of over 1,550 real estate transactions be the proof that he is an exceptional real estate broker.
Today, he is best identified as a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury High Value Residential Broker, earning many of the highest ratings offered by Coldwell Banker NRT, the long list including the prestigious designations of International President’s Premier, International President’s Elite Top 1% nationally and the Bronze Circle of Distinction from Coldwell Banker Commercial. He’s also been recognized locally, designated in the Top 100 Agents in Northern California and top 1% in our Carmel-by-the-Sea office which is the number two office in the nation in its size category. William is a proud member of a multi-generational Monterey Peninsula family. He grew up with a native's appreciation of our pristine coastline that began when his great-grandfather arrived in Pacific Grove and married a local girl whose family was native to Monterey County. A casual question about a local landmark will reveal his rich awareness of our local history. Ask him, and he will tell you with obvious pride of his ongoing work in quality new construction and in the effort to preserve historic buildings and sites here. His sold listings include the historic Marsh Asian Art Building and the legendary Holman Ranch, a 392 acre Carmel Valley guest ranch, once the vacation hideaway for Hollywood stars of the Golden Era. His obvious love for our community is an attestation to his dedication on maintaining our local values. Relax and grow confident in his easy and straightforward manner of doing business and you will realize why so many successful buyers and sellers have made him the captain of their real estate marketing team. His passion for the arts, water sports, golf, and equestrian activities make the Monterey Peninsula his perfect home to share with his past, present and future clients.
