“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, thoroughly 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 successful real estate deal.”
