Bill Reuther is a native of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, who after graduating from Hillsdale College with a BA in Accounting, made his way down to the Washington, DC area in 1992 to work as assistant comptroller of a Presidential Campaign. After several years working in the political realm, Bill returned home to obtain his law degree from the University of Detroit School of Law. Upon graduation in 1996, Bill returned to Washington, DC where he worked in the corporate law department of a large international law firm. Bill also worked in the government contract practice group of an accounting firm (PricewaterhouseCoopers) as a cost accountant and attorney with a focus on Federal Acquisition Regulation as it relates to Department of Defense contractors.
In 1997, Bill stumbled upon and purchased his first 3 unit apartment building on 17th Street, NW in Adams Morgan and was bitten by the real estate bug. After that Bill spent his spare time tracking down multi-unit investment opportunities. Looking for an opportunity to transition more fully into the real estate field, Bill joined a fledgling mortgage company in 1999. As its Vice President, Bill was instrumental in growing it into one of the largest mortgage brokerages and lenders in the Metropolitan Washington, DC area, providing home financing services in 24 states and the District of Columbia, with offices in Virginia, Georgia and California. In addition to loan origination process management, Mr. Reuther managed the marketing and financial aspects of the mortgage company.
During the mortgage boom of the first decade of the new century, Bill continued to pursue his hobby of finding real estate investments in Washington, DC. In 2005 Bill procured his real estate license to help facilitate his real estate transactions. After a short while he was asked to help friends and acquaintances with their real estate transactions as well. Soon he found himself with an active real estate practice.
Bill holds real estate licenses in Virginia and Washington, DC and serves both locales equally. Bill has been a resident of Alexandria Virginia for 3 years after having enjoyed many years as a Capitol Hill resident living most recently right behind the Eastern Market on 8th Street, SE. Bill is married to Mary Lacey Reuther and has two children, Frank who is 5 and Emily who is 2. He has two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named Hattie and Nellie who are like having two more children.

Apart from his family and friends, Bill most enjoys all things real estate – from the curb to the front door to the floor joists to the curtains to the pacasandra outside – he loves real estate.
