Raised in the small logging town of Castle Rock in SW Washington, Bill joined the United States Marine Corps when he was 18. He was recruited to serve as a guard for the presidential helicopter squadron HMX-1, serving under President George H. W. Bush. In 1994 at the age of 24, Bill became a Deputy Sheriff with the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office in Eastern Washington. In the fall of 1997, Bill made the move from Eastern Washington to Camano Island where he still patrols to this day.
“I don’t think I’d still be wearing the uniform if it wasn’t for the support of this community. This is a great place to live and raise a family. People are just friendlier here”.
“As a cop, I’ve made a career out of helping people. Being a real estate broker is different, but at the end of the day it’s still about doing the right thing and treating people right.” “Working with the professional Brokers at North48 gives me the confidence to build on the experience I have.”
Bill lives in Arlington with his wife Gretchen, a managing agent and insurance advisor, his 17 year old daughter Kayla, 16-year-old stepson Cade, and soon to be 13-year old stepson Quinn.
“I love to travel with my family, but nothing makes me appreciate the beauty of the Pacific Northwest more than coming back home”.
