McCoy who has 20 years experience in Real Estate Education and now 5 years as administrator for 1031 exchanges . Bill has created many successful businesses in his 40-year career in real estate. He is also an author, a respected instructor in real estate education throughout New Mexico and a sought-after expert in his field.

Bill, a New Mexico native, founded Bill McCoy Realty in 1985, and in 1992 founded what would become the largest privately held provider of qualified intermediary services in the Southwest.

In 2005 Bill sold his interest in the qualified intermediary company and bought a share in JR Realty Inc. with the intention of growing the organization. In two years as Chief Financial Officer Bill helped build JR Realty from two offices and 35 agents into one of the largest independent real estate operations in New Mexico, with five offices in four cities and two states and a sales staff of over 100 agents.

Bill continued to provide qualified intermediary services through his new company, Otra Vez Investments.

JR Realty was bought by Prudential Sandia Real Estate in 2007. Bill stayed on to help with the transition and was then asked to remain as Chief Operating Officer. As COO Bill oversaw operations for Prudential Sandia’s five Albuquerque offices through 2011. During that time of Bill's service, revenues increased five fold.

Bill served on the New Mexico Real Estate Commission Education Steering Committee for over 20 years, was the Dean of Real Estate Instruction for Kaplan Professional Schools for over 10 years and now owns the Center for Advanced Real Estate Studies. He is also the author of numerous books used for real estate education throughout New Mexico and the US, has provided analysis on real estate matters for the New Mexico State Senate Legislative Finance Committee, New Mexico State General Services Department, and provides services to the legal community as an expert witness in real estate cases. In 2019 Bill finished a seven year term as Environmental Planning Commissioner for District 9 in the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In their spare time, Bill and Jody have many hobbies, including glass blowing, stained glass work, pewter casting and travel.
