Bill Coghlan

Bill Coghlan joined Whidbey View Homes in June 2017. Bill was born in Seattle and raised in Southern California where he had an extensive career following college (BS in Finance/Real Estate). He was formally trained in appraising, loan underwriting and banking during his initial year of management training with H.F. Ahmanson & Co., the holding company of Home Savings, the then largest U.S. Savings and Loan Association. During this period, Bill was tasked with learning the acquisition process for the Property Development Department and his focus shifted from banking to the development of real estate. During his career he developed over 5000 units that included single family homes, condos and apartments plus an office building and two shopping centers in California, Texas and Florida.

In the late 90s, as the economy started to recover from that recession, Bill joined a small family business that had land to sell to the large public builders who were anxious to meet the growing demand for new housing. The land holdings included 2350 lots, primarily for move-up housing, within a master-planned community. Bill’s major responsibility, initially, was to then take the proceeds from the land sales and reinvest them through IRS 1031 exchanges. This evolved into acquisition and dispositions of all types of real estate over a fifteen year period.

Bill held a California Brokers license, a General Contractors license and Certified General Appraiser license. He currently has a Washington State Brokers license.

Bill was President of the Building Industry Association of Greater Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, a 1200 member lobbying organization, and a Trustee and Governmental Affairs Chairman of the Building Industry Association of Southern California.

Bill is married to his wife Lisa and they enjoy remodeling homes, gardening, vintage cars and spending time with their wonderful senior Labrador Retriever, Libby. They relocated to this paradise called Whidbey Island after searching all of the islands in the Puget Sound for over fifteen years. Whidbey View Homes represented them in the purchase of their home in Langley and they remained in contact with Pamela Z. Hill.

Bill is very pleased to join Pamela at Whidbey View Homes and is looking forward to helping others find that perfect island home for them.
