Thank goodness for Google Calendar. My schedule changes from minute to minute and I wouldn’t have it any other way because I love what I do.
Believe it or not, my military background prepared me well for a career in real estate. I grew up an army brat, in Massachusetts… and Texas, and France, and Rhode Island, then carried on the family tradition as an MP in Alabama, Germany, Maryland, Kentucky (waking up in Fort Knox is certainly an eye-opener). I’m sure you get the picture. A service member’s schedule is never their own, your life can change in an instant. Mine still does.
One of my favorite movie quotes, is a line spoken by Carl the FBI agent in Catch Me If You Can. Impersonating a pilot, Frank requests that Carl “Stop chasing me!” Carl replies simply, “I can’t stop, it’s my job.”
I feel that way every day. Every transaction is a story and each home buyer has a unique tale, a specific wish list. Every lender handles their bank-owned transactions differently. The vast world of short sales presents worlds of new challenges. Sellers in our current market face concerns that never existed before. Frequently I’m asked why I am so determined to make every one of these stories work out. I find myself replying, “I can’t stop, it’s my job.”
My clients ARE my job, so doing what’s best for the client is clearly a top priority. Your calls and e-mails will always be responded to... promptly! Even after the transaction is complete, I’m here for you. “I can’t stop, it’s my job.”
Yes, I do have a list of credentials and I’d be happy to recite them for you, but only on demand. My credentials are significant but not meaningful. Here’s what I hope you take away from this. I’ll be up-front with you. At the end of the day you will be satisfied with the job I’ve done. It’s what I learned in the military and what I believe is important.

The Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP) presents its Five-Point Plan to create awareness, find solutions, and advocate equal housing and economic development for the underserved military and veteran communities.
- Homeownership Advocacy. Advocate nationally to develop programs that reduce barriers to homeownership in the military and veteran communities;
- Community Outreach. Foster responsible homeownership in the military and veteran communities by providing housing education and counseling services, and through live and online courses on such topics as foreclosure prevention, financial literacy, and understanding credit—pre and post-purchase.
- Professional Membership. Provide a place where real estate and financial service professionals can share ideas, get educated, and be empowered to better serve the real estate needs of service members, veterans, and their families. Non-military members are welcome;
- Veteran Job Creation. Collaborate with organizations in the financial service sector to support veteran employment, and help implement legislation such as the Vow to Hire Heroes Act, the Health Information Technology Act, the Veterans Benefits Act, the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act, and Executive Order 13360 (promoting federal contracting opportunities for Service Disabled Veteran Owners of Small Business);
- Affordable Housing. Provide affordable home buying opportunities for veterans and service members who have gone through VAREP’s homeownership education counseling services. Participate in first look property programs; discounted distressed property purchase programs; and distressed property donation programs to acquire, renovate, and resell homes below market value;
As America endures the long road to housing recovery, VAREP will serve the housing needs of veterans and service members, ensuring that they have the access to affordable homeownership they deserve. We will be their voice in the legislative and policy arena, encouraging financial institutions and government agencies to create programs that suit their unique needs

Paul Horton / Phoenix Arizona01/18/2018
Working with Bill again was fantastic. This was our 3rd time working with Bill...he helped us find a rental home when we first moved to the Valley, he helped us find the perfect home for purchase, and this time, he managed our personal home for us as we rented it out over the last year. We have never rented our home before, and we were nervous about several things about the process as any first timers would be. Bill handled everything wonderfully. We had extremely qualified tenants within 30 days at a much higher rent than I expected. Bill handled any maintenance or repairs so we never had to worry. And monthly rent was always on time, deposited directly into our account. Our tenants just wrapped up their lease in our home, and Bill ensured it was left in better shape than we left it! I highly recommend Bill for any real estate needs. His knowledge, attention to detail, and no nonsense approach has made us life long clients of his. Thanks Bill!

Eric Elmquist from Pennsyvania10/04/2017
My wife and I are living in Pennsylvania and have been looking for a place to retire at in Arizona. I had worked with a couple other realtors before finding Bill. I have family in AZ who introduced us to Bill. I can say that he is an extremely hard working man. We in PA are 3 hours ahead of the AZ time. I would send Bill emails at 7am from here and he would answer them immediately. I asked him if he ever slept. He told me he was an early riser and liked to exercise before work. He also worked most weekends showing my family houses for my wife and me, while we were tuned in on facetime. He went the extra mile to help us out. He is a very understanding, hardworking and patient man and a great realtor. Thank you Bill for getting us a great deal on our dream house. If you are looking for a home, be smart and call Bill. Eric
Jeanne and David Dunkinson, moved from California05/26/2017
We met Bill when we made an offer on our present home. We were visiting from California and never before moved out of state, let alone made an offer on a house long distance. Bill helped us through the process and an added bonus is he is also our neighbor! He's a great neighbor to have too! J
Sarat and Anju P.05/24/2017
I chose Bill after we found a leaflet stating that he had sold another home in our neighborhood. We had to sell our house within a tight timeframe as I had taken a job in Houston. While my former realtor was trying to buy time and eventually buy the house himself putting us under pressure, we felt something was wrong. I chose Bill without any reference except for the leaflet. He made everything easy and smooth for us and helped my family navigate home showings as I started my work in Houston. Bill sold our house in three days and got us a price that was far beyond what my former Wall Street Journal and Arizona Realtor Service ranked realtor could give. He was sincere, honest and was willing to fight for our rights when negotiations took a different turn. I wholeheartedly recommend Bill as he is a great realtor. If you are a fairly new immigrant to this country, consider Bill as he can give you a great, honest experience. Sarat

Thanks Bill Salvatore with Your Valley Property Team thru Arizona Elite Properties for such a great service. Please feel free to use me as a reference to future clients.
Your service was outstanding!!!! When I first had notions of selling my condo, I was worried about preparation, listing price, and settlements. You handled everything so well. I was expecting there to be long delays in selling, but through your knowledge of the industry, it was listed and received multiple offers, near, and above asking, within 4 days. I really appreciate how accessible you were for questions throughout the whole process!! And really felt the dedication to my listing, when I know that you have listings that far out price mine!
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you, and will definitely use you again, when the need arises!
