About Bill

For 25 years, I have enjoyed calling the Lake Norman region home. As a corporate executive, I focused my energies on helping businesses define and achieve their goals. Now, as a Realtor, I’m still helping folks define and achieve their goals. The difference is I just get to do it on a more personal level. Most real estate transactions are also life transitions, which can be exciting (and maybe a little frightening). That’s where I can help. I’m always thrilled to see my clients buy their first home, their dream home, or their ‘right now’ home. I’m honored when folks trust me to sell their home as they move on to whatever is next. For me, being that trusted partner is what it’s all about.


Buying and/or selling a home is not something you do every day and you need someone who will work with you and for you. I especially enjoy helping first-time buyers. If lakefront living is your goal, who better to help you than a lake resident like me.  Whatever your goals, I will work to ensure you have the best possible experience by:

  • Listening to you to clearly understand your needs  
  • Developing a plan we can track together, and
  • Keeping you informed throughout the process with frequent and productive communications


It’s not rocket science! But it does require a committed and knowledgeable professional with an attention to detail who appreciates your valuable time.


If you’re considering buying or selling (or just need some guidance to know if the time is right), I’d appreciate the opportunity to talk with you and learn how I can serve you.

Bill did an outstanding job with helping us find our dream home in such a short time period. We moved from Denver, CO and only had a few short weeks to find a house. Bill was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! We would recommend him to anyone.

‐ Anna Braksick

Bill was recommended to us from a friend who had worked with him in the past. We immediately loved his personality. He has a calming demeanor that was very helpful with the stressful situation of selling my parent's lifelong home. Bill is very knowledgeable and understood the market in our particular area. I no longer live in the area so his knowledge was much... Read More

Bill’s communication was fantastic. He gave us detailed timelines of what needed to be done. If we ever had any questions, we were able to call him and discuss further. His communication is what made the purchase so easy and non-stressful.

Bill’s knowledge and experience accompanied with his patience and desire to find a perfect fit for us was invaluable. I give him my highest recommendation!

‐ Chris Lambert, Denver

Bill Washburn represented us in the purchase of our new home, so we knew how competent and helpful he was. Therefore, we wouldn’t have considered anyone else to represent us in the sale of our previous home. Bill is especially effective at letting his clients know what to expect and what actions are needed by them. Having dealt with Bill as both a buyer and a seller, we... Read More

‐ Buck & Catherine Buchanan, California, MD

Bill Washburn was with us every step of the way and made us feel like family. He researched the market and came up with a good sale price and timeframe. He took the time to carefully explain everything and made sure we understood what was happening. The house was sold in less than a week! We highly recommend him and Helen Adams Realty Cornelius/Lake Norman.

‐ Liz Hambly, Charlotte

Nothing but praises for this guy. He is personable and really enjoys helping people find the right home. If you want an "honest" realtor who truly looks out for YOUR interest, I highly recommend Bill. We had not moved in 37 years, and there was no stress knowing Bill was in charge!

‐ Shelby Taylor

Bill helped us manage everything from expectations to negotiations to the finer details of getting our punch list completed at the new home. To say that his assistance was “full service” is an understatement. Having not purchased a home in quite some time, we were not familiar with the process. Bill helped us with every step and provided succinct, clear instructions and... Read More

Bill and I were completely in synch as to the approach to selling our rental house.

Bill was a pleasure to work with during every step of the selling process. With this being the first home I have sold, Bill prepared me on the possible outcomes of each decision made and advised on how to get the most out of our sell. My home sold in much less time and with a larger return than I would have expected. Bill also was our buying agent for our new home, which we... Read More

I will recommend Bill Washburn to anyone and everyone who needs or is even considering selling a property. I have never met a more professionally caring individual. Bill was a blessing.

We are so happy Bill Washburn handled the sale of our home. We were in an unusual position of having to sell the home only 6 or 7 months after having purchased it due to an unforeseen job change.

‐ The Greene Family, Charlotte NC area

Bill was privilege to work with. I live in South Florida and didn’t know anyone in your area. Bill went out of his way to recommend contractors and make sure the work was done properly. It is extremely difficult to find someone that you can rely on and I would gladly use Bill again. I only wish he lived in Ft. Lauderdale so I could use his services down here.
