The mentor highly recommended that he looks into other forms of real estate such as property management.

During this time, he purchased, flipped, and sold several of his own properties as well as helped clients do the same. With the experience of being a top agent in the brokerage and senior property manager, he decided that it was time to open his own firm.

In 2010, William opened his own his brokerage and became a top selling independent broker within just a few years. He also created a web application that allowed owners and buyers to save thousands of dollars during a transaction. It has been William’s goal to provide real estate services to clients at an affordable rate since he first opened his brokerage and is still his mission now.
