Though the name on the door is probably a tipoff, it takes no more than a single encounter with Bill to understand that he is the foundation of everything we do at McCall & Almy. He’s incredibly kind and welcoming with an ease that makes you feel like you’ve known him forever. A storyteller at heart, Bill isn’t shy about telling us what he’s learned during the good times and the bad. Every person will tell you about his laugh, it’s his trademark, and it’s contagious. On the business side, Bill likes to be kind, gracious and a mix of old school meets new. Even though he insists on a real person answering the phones, he knows his way around an iPhone. What he loves about commercial real estate and imparts to the company is a sense of entrepreneurialism. This all stems from him being a Navy fighter pilot for three years where he learned persistence and dedication no matter what situation you encounter. Bill’s known for being bullish about the market, and he’s not afraid to take risks having founded two successful commercial real estate companies in his career. His wisdom in the office is invaluable, and we are lucky enough to get the wisdom of his advice every day.
