Bill is a lifetime resident in the Northern Virginia region with a passion for helping others. His tireless work ethic, loyalty, honesty, and integrity are a few qualities that bring clients to put their trust in him. These personal values and qualities are the very reasons Bill enjoyed a 23 year career in the National Football League building world premier organizations including the Dallas Cowboys, Carolina Panthers, and our very own hometown team here in Washington. Bill’s growing passion for real estate began when he started investing in rental properties early in his NFL career while managing his own properties in Fairfax, Fauquier, Prince William, and even Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Bill enjoys supporting young buyers and rental property investors who appreciate his perseverance and dedication he has for finding just the right property for each family and investor. If you are selling a home, Bill provides top shelf marketing, and guidance to bring your property’s value near the market’s peak generating multiple offers for sellers to select from.
During Bill’s free time, he volunteers by providing training opportunities to the Mid Atlantic’s finest youth wrestlers while exposing them to national and international level coaches right here in Virginia at his personal facility.
Bill’s graduate studies were in Education at Indiana University and he completed his undergraduate work at Old Dominion University where he married the former Mariela Tatiana Araujo, a lifelong educator within the public school system. The couple have 2 teenage boys and are active in the diverse community they call home.
Bill did an amazing job with us looking for a home in a hectic market. He was always open and willing to do the research we needed for us and show us houses despite our busy schedules. He also made us feel like it was truly our journey and not just another sale.
Bill was a great Agent and extremely instrumental in our family’s process of selling our home and buying our new home. He was very responsive to addressing all our questions and/or concerns, even going above and beyond of what we would expect from a realtor. He took care of us as if we were his family. He helped coordinate all the aspects of listing and selling our home that made it easy for us given our busy work and home schedule. We had a ratified contract in less than 48 hours from listing, closed within a week, and had free rent back for 60 days!!! Yes FREE!!! When it was time for us buy, his service continued to exceed our expectations. He was responsive, looked out for us, and helped us navigate a very difficult market for buyers. We highly recommend Bill for all your real estate needs.
I recommend Bill and his team if you’re looking to find your home. Bill was instrumental in helping my family relocate from NJ to NC. His guidance and insight into the various markets we were exploring was invaluable.
Bill was so great to work with during the whole home buying journey! He helped my husband and I purchase our first home! As a first time home buyer, he walked us through every step of the way and we learned so much from him. If you are looking for a responsive, attentive, and knowledgeable agent – Bill is your guy. He was always on the same page, knew what we were looking for, and always initiated action while searching for the best home. He had out best interest at heart and always made us feel comfortable. The market was very competitive but with Bill’s tactics and knowledge we were able to land a deal with a single family home of our dreams!
It was a pleasure working with Bill. Extremely helpful. Will definitely work with him in the future should I be in the market again. Highly recommended!!!
Bill was amazing to work with. Very easy to talk to and communicate with, especially as a first time home buyer who knew nothing about the process of buying a home! He was not pushy in any way and very respectful of any financial boundaries I set. He always did his best to accommodate my requests and made the process of purchasing my first property a pleasant and easy one! His wealth of knowledge and experience was displayed as he answered any questions I had and connected me with the right people. Do yourself a favor and get Bill on your home buying team!

We absolutely love Bill! We contacted him when we were searching for a new townhouse to rent. He spent day and night helping us find the perfect place. We toured probably 25 townhouses (not even kidding) and we finally found the one we love. We would send Bill a bunch of places we were interested in and he would set up an entire itinerary for us to check them all out. If this man was not physically with us, he was talking to us on the phone. Such a dedicated and professional man! We will be contacting him again when it is our time to buy a house! He is the best!
My Wife, Son and I were looking for somewhere to rent on a tight budget with two dogs. Bill heard our needs, concerns, and what we were looking for. Within a week Bill had a list of houses all catered to our needs, within two weeks he had us in a house that we absolutely love. He found us a three bed three bath house under budget, in the area we wanted. He stayed on top of the management company everyday for a week because he knew we loved the house and wanted to get in it before anyone else could. He got it locked down for us and now my little boy and dogs have a yard to play in and we have a house we can grow into. In a crazy real estate market, you definitely want someone like Bill in your corner to focus on exactly what you are looking for and he will make sure you get it. Bill is an awesome guy!
Bill Dekraker is one of the most professional individuals I have had the pleasure of working with! He helped me find my current home in a very short period of time. At every step of the process, he was not just an effective guide and trusted advisor, he was always on time, very approachable, affable, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!
Bill takes searching for homes to another level. My family has had some good agents, but Bill is so approachable and makes searching so much less stressful that we will never use another agent. He was so streamlined and efficient with our time that we had plenty of extra time to discuss our purchase at the end of the day. Excellent with logistics.
