In reference to Bill McKown, realtor for Bailey Properties in Santa Cruz, I am happy to give the highest recommendation for his services. Bill has excellent skills as a realtor with many years experience in the Santa Cruz area assisting investors like myself. He has facilitated transactions on multiple properties for my personal use and my investment portfolio. Bill thoroughly researches the issues involved in these purchases or sales and consistently completes the transactions in a smooth and professional manner. Bill has assisted me in the purchase of single family homes, multi-residential properties, distressed property, and vacant land. You will be well served if you choose Bill McKown to represent you on your next real estate transaction.”

  • Marty Kendall

“Our property was formerly listed with one of those low-fee real estate firms, but after three months we didn’t have a single offer. Within three weeks of listing with Bill, we had an offer over asking price! We can’t recommend Bill McKown highly enough. He was thoughtful, insightful, sincere, throughly qualified and always professional. Bill was a delight to work with and instrumental in the sale of our project. He really knows what it takes to achieve a sucessful real estate deal.”
