It has been a number of years since Bill was active in San Diego Real Estate, but he had a major impact when he was. I sometimes think of the days when San Diego County had 11 Associations of REALTORS and an MLS in San Diego, El Cajon, South Bay, San Diegito...plus smaller MLSs in La Jolla, Point Loma, and Coronado...each with its own lock boxes. In the late 1980s, Bill was a force behind the creation of a countywide lock box system for San Diego County, and he was instrumental in the creation of one of the largest regional MLSs in the country in 1991, Sandicor.
Personally, Bill is one of the people who got me involved in leadership at SDAR. I served on Bill's Executive Committee in 1991. He appointed me as a CAR Director that same year, where I served for 20 years. He was a successful and well respected REALTOR member of the San Diego County real estate community, and a friend who I always looked forward to seeing.
