Those who know Will Stein say he acts with integrity and honesty. A family man first, Will has been married for six years to a school teacher in Annapolis, and together have two children.
Will Stein is best known for his ability to serve buyers and sellers specifically to negotiate in their best interest and, as many state, to ‘See the numbers’. In addition to both real estate consulting, and working in a traditional brokerage setting, Will Stein works with many on purchasing investment properties for a long term hold. He owns many himself, located throughout the Washington DC region, and his ability to see the numbers gives him a unique edge in traditional brokerage negotiations, which allows him to secure the highest price for his sellers, or the lowest price for his buyers, whether just as an investment – or more importantly a new home for a growing family.
In 2012, Will Stein launched, Belair Realty, knowing that he could do more when he was acting in the best interest of his client, not in the best interest of a boss. His ethics have taken him far, and time and time again clients state that he continues to put integrity and honesty at the forefront of all business practices.
