William Sonzogni Realtor ®
Bill comes from a Financial Services background having spent 15 years on Wall Street, where he built and managed an institutional fixed income trading desk that catered to some of the largest hedge funds in the World. In 2005 he began to specialize in trading the Real Estate sector for various funds and quickly developed a strong passion for the asset class, acquiring knowledge that would eventually help navigate his firm successfully through the 2008 financial crisis. Years later Bill chose to pursue his passion for Real Estate full-time and joined CBRE as a member of their Investment Properties Group, with a focus on Multi-Family buildings. There he had the opportunity to learn alongside some of the most established investors within NJ and study the nuisances of their decision making process and strategies. He credits his strong understanding of the macro-economic picture and ability to spot future trends and opportunities throughout the economic cycle for quickly gaining his clients trust, and his constant protection of their best interests for keeping it.
What fundamentally drives Bill though is his passion for building long lasting relationships with clients, while always taking a very pro-active and consultative approach in guiding them thru what could potentially be the biggest purchase and/or sale of their lives. He takes a great deal of pride and honor in having been entrusted with such an important responsibility, and nothing satisfies him more than guiding clients smoothly, happily, and most important successfully through the process. It's those very reasons that attracted him to the residential side of the business and the ones he by far finds most rewarding.
In his personal life, Bill grew up in Wayne, where his parents still reside, and currently lives in Glen Rock with his wife Liz, their 2 young sons (Jack age 8 & Sam age 5), along with their crazy dog Bella. Bill loves giving back to his community and is often seen volunteering as an ice hockey coach or at his kids’ schools. Last year he ran for a Town Council seat in the general election, which he considers one of the greatest experiences of his life. Always happy to talk and a warm and friendly person by nature, Bill is always available to answer any question you may have or simply just to talk, so please never hesitate to reach out.
