A moment with Bill:

What are two things that make you smile?
As an older member of the Besser + Co. team, I smile when I see achievement and accomplishment by the younger members of our team. The other time when I smile is when my grandson says “thank you grandpa”.

Tell us about your most memorable sale?
Back in 1970 I did my very first public auction in Carnegie. It was a modest timber home that attracted great interest at the time. Very nervous, and with my late father, we auctioned the property and sold it for $29,000 – $9,000 over the reserve! I was hooked on auctions from then on.

What keeps you passionate about real estate?
After 50 years in the industry, I am currently surrounded by young people at Besser + Co., most of which I am older enough to be their father. To offer the occasional advice and to be a sought of guardian overseeing the growth of this company most certainly maintains my passion for real estate.
