William P. Brown
Realtor for The Maryland / Delaware Group of Long & Foster
A native of Delmar, Delaware, Bill Brown specializes in helping clients who wish to buy or sell in the Salisbury-Ocean City-southern Delaware triangle. Bill joined Long & Foster’s Ocean City, Md., office in 2012 and made it his goal to learn everything he could about the beach-area markets. Today, working from Long & Foster’s Salisbury, Md., office, Bill combines his outstanding knowledge of shore properties with his equally impressive understanding of the Salisbury and southern Delaware markets. If you are looking for a personable, energetic Realtor with sophisticated marketing and negotiation skills, contact Bill Brown today at 302-381-4513.
As a member of the highly successful Maryland Group of Long and Foster, Bill offers sellers unmatched Internet exposure and a huge pool of potential buyers developed by team members across the state. Buyers, meanwhile, benefit from Bill’s extensive knowledge of current market values and trends, thanks to the Maryland Group’s high volume of successful transactions.
Widely experienced in real-estate development, retail-space management, and the restaurant and hospitality business, Bill is the grandson of George Purnell, who founded a legendary retail and food-service complex in Laurel, Delaware, known as Bargain Bill’s (named for Bill’s father). The younger Bill grew up in the business and, as a young man in his twenties, became its president and CEO, eventually increasing the company’s annual sales from $700 thousand to more than $8 million. At the time of its sale in 2009, the business included 12 permanent retail storefronts, nearly 300 small shops rented on a daily or weekly basis, a thriving pizza restaurant, the largest Shell Oil franchise on the Delmarva Peninsula, and a sports bar and grill which ranked fifth in sales in the state of Delaware.
After he and his family sold the Delaware complex, Bill was contacted by a property-investment group who wished to redevelop a large, long-vacant shopping mall in Ohio. Bill went to work for the investors and in less than a year successfully renovated and transformed the property, leasing 180,000 sq. feet of retail space to a mix of national and local tenants.
Immediately thereafter, another investor group hired Bill to revitalize a nearly vacant mall elsewhere in Ohio. Here Bill’s accomplishments included redesigning, renovating, and rebranding the property, recruiting tenants, negotiating contracts, and managing marketing and accounting. In roughly a year, Bill successfully rented 325,000 sq. feet of space.
Today, Bill credits his success to many factors, including the support of his loving wife, Christy, and their two children, Jordan (age 11) and Elizabeth (age 10). Bill and Christy have been married for 12 years, and Bill says of her help and encouragement, “Christy is such a huge supporter of everything I do. She has made me a better person in innumerable ways.”
With his broad knowledge of real-estate development and sales––combined with his savvy business skills––Bill Brown is an exceptional real-estate agent perfectly suited to provide advice and services that will make your real-estate dreams come true. Citing his strong work ethic and his desire to work closely and successfully with his clients, Bill said, “I’m here to do business, to represent people in a professional way, to earn their trust.”
