Bill has teamed up with his wife, Sharon, to bring sellers and buyers the best service possible. They provide a unique balance and perspective as they counsel clients to ensure success for their real estate goals. His real estate career began in 1977 right here in Marin County at a small office in downtown Mill Valley. These 43 years include 22 years of owning/managing his own office, managing for Frank Howard Allen in Mill Valley and starting and managing the McGuire Mill Valley Real Estate office.
To increase awareness of new property coming on the market among his associates, Bill held a monthly networking session called the Buy/Sell. He spearheaded this and facilitated it for over 15 years. Agents throughout Marin are invited to send information about their properties which are downloaded into a Power Point presentation. At the meeting agents have an opportunity to speak about their new listings while the agent audience views it on the screen. "We have had buyers find some significant properties through this effort. The most memorable one was for a sale of $23,000,000 in Tiburon," recalls Bill.
Bill believes in keeping on top of market trends and ongoing changes in real estate. He is a GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), and has received numerous awards such as: Realtor of the Year - Marin Association of Realtors; Circle of Excellence Award - National Association of Professional Saleswomen; Best Real Estate Agent in Marin - Marin Independent Journal; Distinguished Service Award - Marin Association of Realtors. He has served on and chaired most of the committees at the Marin Association of Realtors (MAR) and has been an officer/director for both the Marin and California Association of Realtors. He was the Association's President in 2010 and currently Chairs on the Professional Standards Committee for MAR. Over the years, he also served as a Director on BAREIS, the Multiple Listing Association. Bill also belongs to the San Francisco Association of Realtors and has assisted many clients sell & buy properties in The City.
Being community minded, over the years Bill has also served on several non-profit Boards including President, Mill Valley Soccer Club; Chair, College of Marin Advisory Committee; President, Marin Community Food Bank; and Secretary, SingersMarin.
A third-generation San Franciscan, Bill moved to Marin with Sharon in 1970 where they raised their family. They are now proud and happy to add the role of grand-parenting along with being respected real estate professionals.

“Absolutely wonderful! Bill & Sharon provided excellent service and exceeded all my expectations. They were very professional, knowledgeable, ethical and they listened to all my concerns and resolved issues in a speedy successful way. I cannot say enough good things about them.”
-J.N., Novato, CA
"As a President and CEO of several companies, I am dependent upon people listening, evaluating and responding to me before I am needed to make a decision. This is exactly what Sharon and Bill did. They met with us to discuss our needs, likes and dislikes and only presented properties after they personally evaluated them. Throughout the entire purchasing and closing of the property, they were prompt and precise with the delivery of the documents needed to close and they were also excellent about responding to all our questions. The only agents we will ever use again for our real estate transactions would be The McKeon’s. In fact, now they have assisted us on 9 different occasions.”
