Bill has been a full-time realtor with Berkley & Veller Greenwood Country since 1981. Licensed in both Vermont and New Hampshire, Bill has consistently been one of the top brokers at the firm as well as in the Southern Vermont Board of Realtors. He has served his realtor board as a director and as a chairman of the multiple listings, ethics and legal forms committees. He has received his Certified Residential Broker Manager (CRB) and E-Pro credentials and completed courses in 1031 Tax-deferred Exchanges, contract law, energy efficiency and Conservation Easements. In 2004, Bill's colleagues recognized his accomplishments and contributions and named him Realtor of the Year.
"I'm a former teacher and the son of a teacher, I see my role as an educator of real estate buyers and sellers. People need information and context, not pressure and salesmanship, to help make significant financial decisions. My entire real estate career is based on my belief that I do not sell real estate, I help people understand their options. Buyers want to understand what their money will buy. Sellers want to receive fair value for their property. Everyone wants to be treated fairly."
Over the years Bill and his wife, Alison Macrae, have restored and sold two of their own homes, purchased land and overseen the construction of their current home. Bill also owns and manages timberland and rental property. Along the way he has developed knowledge of green design and building techniques, energy efficiency, historic preservation and sustainable land use. Bill's collaboration with the Vermont Land Trust and participation on the Windham Regional Commission are natural extensions of his interests. His long time membership and service on the Brattleboro Food Coop Board of Directors is also a significant part of his commitment to a strong, sustainable, local economy.
"In 1976, right out of college, I had the incredible good fortune to move to Vermont. I quickly made the conscious decision to spend my life here. My greatest satisfaction has been in playing an active role to help preserve Vermont's working landscape, strengthen the local economy and participate in supporting our interesting and varied community. I love where I live and what I do. I'm a really lucky guy."
