Bill Eshenbaugh, ALC, CCIM – Active in brokerage and land development in the Tampa Bay area for more 30 years, Bill has weathered and prospered through several real estate cycles and has a keen ability to see and forecast trends ahead of the curve. Tenacity and a fervent passion for the business have earned him the nickname, “The Dirt Dog.” “With land deals, you need to know a little about a lot of stuff,” Bill explains. “We can put together complex deals because we’re so knowledgeable. When we walk on a vacant piece of property, we have a checklist a mile long – we understand all of those issues. We know how to ask those questions and guide people through the process. If you bring us a piece of land, we know how to identify the issues that get the deal done.” Bill is a frequent industry speaker, teacher, and active board member, has been a director or officer in most of the major real estate organizations, and has been honored with numerous “Broker of the Year” awards. Most recently he earned the prestigious Florida 2013 Board-Certified “Land Broker of the Year Award” by the World Organization Land Federation Advisory Board (WOLF) and “The Henry Blanton Lifetime Achievement Award” by the Florida Gulfcoast Commercial Association of Realtors (FGCAR) for his many years of leadership. Bill’s most recent accomplishments include:
2013 Robert C. Meeks, ALC Distinguished Service Award by The REALTORS® Land Institute, an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®
“Land Deal of the Year 2013”
“Overall Deal of the Year 2013”
