About Wm French Buyer’s Real Estate Services
Founder and President Bill French (2020) began his company as a result of being in a difficult situation that many people have faced – feeling that his realtor simply wanted to sell a him house without considering what he was looking for. His job relocated him multiple times and he encountered this same problem again and again. As a result of his vision and personal experience, Bill established Wm French Buyer’s Real Estate Services, Inc. in 1977 — the first of its kind in the country — a real estate agency with no listings, where the priority is finding the right home for our clients.
