Bill grew up in Hangzhou, China, and graduated from the University of Maryland-College Park with an MS in the fields of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. For many years, he enjoyed a career serving big automotive companies in the Detroit area. Bill currently lives in West Bloomfield. Having been in Michigan for over 20 years and having traveled all over the world, Bill strongly believes that Michigan has much to offer. It is one of the best places in the country to raise a family. Michigan has the nation’s (see area info) top schools and universities in the Metro Detroit area. There is no need to worry about running out of fresh water, or about natural disasters. Just like the Great Lakes flow into the ocean, Detroit’s airport connects Michigan to major cities all over the world. Michigan’s communities are socially and ethnically diverse. The salaries are good and the cost of living is lower than other major American cities. We also enjoy four distinct seasons here.
After years of IT consulting, Bill successfully provides multi-million dollar solutions to major automotive companies. Bill draws on his marketing skills in his role as real estate professional to serve his customers. With an engineering background, Bill helps clients make sound decisions based on real marketing data, and he pays attention to details. Bill began his real estate career in 2004 as an investor. He started with flipping houses, buying and selling – and has not stopped. He is now a licensed broker and the owner of 1st Michigan Realty. He is also a notary public acting in the State of Michigan.
In his spare time, Bill is a handyman. His hobby is rehabbing homes, especially distressed ones. He owns properties in many cites in the area. Home Depot and Lowe’s are two of his favorite stores. He understands the structure of houses and is able to make recommendations for remodeling or changing the layout. Currently, he is pursuing his builder’s license.
