Broker/Director of Operations

BillBairdWebAt age 15, Bill became an avid collector and raving fan of the movie It’s A Wonderful Life. One of the morals of the movie is that every decision we make impacts other people, often in ways we never know. Bill lives his life to impact people in positive ways – his family, friends, community, clients – and he does it with commitment, determination and integrity.

Bill learned to work hard at a young age. He was a four-sport letterman in high school and two-sport letterman in college where he obtained degrees in business and psychology.

Bill married the love of his life, Hillory, in 1997. They have two children, Bailey and Grant. Bill and Hillory love to travel to warm places like St. John, Hawaii and Florida when not at ball games supporting their children. Family is the most important thing in his life. He also volunteers hundreds of hours each year in his community including the school board, Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, school activities and various local nonprofits.

In 2000, Bill opened his first real estate company, Infinity Realty. Within 10 years it grew to a 130-agent company averaging $90 million in annual sales. Bill sold the company to Platinum Realty in 2011.

Bill has since taken a different approach with Baird Realty Group. The focus of Baird Realty Group is client centered, expertise driven and quality service guaranteed. All agents are full time and fully committed to these principles. Bill leads by example, accomplishing what so many have tried, but so few successfully: providing high quality residential and commercial real estate service.
