Bill Albers has been selling real estate in California since 1991. Originally a Reno, Nevada native, Bill spent his youth in the Northern California town of Carmel, where his family built and sold high-end properties at prestigious resorts such as Quail Lodge and Carmel Valley Ranch. After graduating with honors in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley in 1990, Bill moved to the Coachella Valley and has been building and selling homes ever since. As a Real Estate Developer and General Contractor, Bill has built or sold over $40 Million in spec homes, customer homes, and commercial buildings. Projects include homes at PGA West, Tradition Golf Club, Bighorn Golf Club, The Vintage, La Quinta Polo Estates, and Hideaway Golf Club.
Clients find Bill’s construction and development background very helpful in analyzing different properties and assessing opportunities. As the owner of Albers Construction Co., Bill knows quality construction and value. For those wishing to upgrade or remodel their homes, Bill’s vast knowledge of the vendor and subcontractor base in the Desert is invaluable. Bill played college golf at the University of California, where he was a 2-time NCAA Academic All American athlete. He is still competitive, having played in the US and British Amateurs, and most recently the 2008 US Mid Amateur. Bill has won multiple club championships at Hideaway Golf Club and PGA West.
