Bill was instrumental in orchestrating two first-time NCJAR events. In partnership with the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark, NCJAR hosted a Homebuyer’s Fair & Expo in July. The Fair was attended by over 250 Newark residents and the surrounding areas. We had 20 industry professionals who assisted renters with credit repair, legal assistance, mortgage information and workshops in order to give them the tools and resources towards a path to home ownership. Bill is passionate about his charities for which, NCJAR raised monies for both Morris/Union Habitat for Humanity and The Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless.

Bill also brought us another first; Membership Appreciation Day at the Hilton Parsippany in September. We had three nationally acclaimed speakers along with food trucks serving us lunch, while our DJ played music.

Bill truly exemplifies what the Realtor® “Spirit” is all about, and we are proud that he is a member of our NCJAR Realtor® family.
