Bill was born in California and had the good fortune to live throughout the US, Europe and Asia. This worldwide travel has given Bill exposure to many different cultures, languages and interpersonal styles. He spent a portion of his childhood in Hawaii where his love of the ocean and surfing developed and has pursued this passion in Australia, Costa Rica, Fiji, Italy, Indonesia, Mexico and both coasts of the US.
Bill spent his earlier career as Chef for 5 star properties throughout the US including The Golden Door in Escondido, CA. and The Breakers in Palm Beach, FL. He has specialized in charity galas, society weddings, and sports events catering for venues such as The World Equestrian Games and the Sony Ericsson Tennis Tournament in Miami. Bill also spent time in Indonesia as Executive Chef and Business development consultant for the first destination health spa in South East Asia, and eventually opened a specialty produce farm in the mountains of West Java which serviced the high end hotels in Jakarta, Bali and Singapore.
Bill has always had a love of real estate, design and construction and is fortunate to have made the career transition as real estate broker with Niche Real Estate. He believes Asheville to be a great combination of small town charm, with a growing food, art and music scene that you often find in bigger cities. Bill brings integrity, professionalism and clear communication to every transaction. He particularly enjoys working with first time buyers, helping them navigate unfamiliar territory, and watching their excitement grow as they build their life in the community. Bill also enjoys working with out-of-town buyers, and will preview homes, send videos, pictures and local information so that his buyers are well prepared. His real estate expertise includes helping clients with “right sizing” and the concept of “aging in place”.
Bill has lived in the Asheville area since 2014 and is delighted to call Western North Carolina home. When he is not working, Bill enjoys spending time with his fiancé, Dawn, exploring all that Western North Carolina has to offer.
