Bill & Coleen - We began our marriage journey in May of 1982. Coleen was working at KMTV in the production department and Bill was working at Millard Lumber estimating lumbers for buildings. On our 1-year wedding anniversary in 1983, we bought our first house for one dollar down (and 18% interest!) After some experience with various real estate agents, BIll decided to get his license in 1983. It was shortly after, that Bill quit working for Millard Lumber and we have been 100% commission based. We have three wonderful kids. Our oldest Daughter, a nurse, is a co-admin of a Regional Heart Clinic in North Platte - wife, and mother of 3. Our other daughter is in her last two years of veterinarian medicine, and married to Logan Twist, who is also on our real estate team. Josiah is a busy 22 year old in many jobs and gaining knowledge for future careers.
We are known as The House Mover as we physically moved our house 11 miles to an acreage in Elkhorn where we have lived for 15 years. We have lived in 3 other properties, and know the hassles of moving, and even the burden of owning two houses at the same time (and the expenses of that!)
Although Bill grew up in the Omaha area, Coleen grew up on a farm in South Dakota, on a chicken farm gathering 2-3000 eggs a day! She came to Omaha to attend and graduate from Grace College and is excellent at being in the office as a support staff to our team. She is delighted to now have Dinette in the office helping with the all the compliance paperwork!
The Bill Black Team is made up of the very best professionals in the real estate
Authentic. Experienced. Established.
Logan Twist, from The Bill Black Team helped me every step of the way for the purchase of my first home. He provided me all the expertise and resources needed to make me comfortable that I had made the right purchase, for the right price. As a team leader, Bill is a great resource for each of his individual agents! I enjoyed the process, and will be using them the next time I purchase a home.

Our decision to downsize was difficult as we loved our home. But we also realized that it was a necessary step as we could see that keeping up the property was going to become a challenge. The Bill Black Team helped us transition to a Villa in the Villas on the Ridge that had adequate space, a great floor plan, modern amenities and an HOA to take care of many of the things that were a drain on energy and time. They did a tremendous job marketing our acreage and getting the sale closed. Their professional advise always resulted in the right decisions. When someone was needed to help us on some task (radon mitigation, house cleaners, window cleaners etc) they were always able to provide a referral. The Bill Black Team will surprise you with TLC.

I've got to brag on Bill. We were recently pre-approved for our first mortgage, and deciding to go with Bill was a pretty easy choice. I grew up in the same social circles as his kids, so I knew his character and morals were second to none. Our only concern was that we knew Bill is one of the best, so we worried that our little loan on our first time out might not warrant his time as much as some of his significantly bigger clients. How wrong we were! Along this whole journey, Bill has made us feel like we're the center of his universe. His staff got us set up with notifications to let us know the second a house in our criteria went on the market. Because of our work schedules, there were times when we couldn't see a house unless it was at a somewhat odd hour. Bill always made it happen. He was our 6 year old's new best friend by the end of the process too. I'm very happy to say that this weekend, Bill helped us close the deal to purchase our first home. My wife and I are a couple of anxiety-prone, busy people, and Bill absolutely made this a hundred times easier than we ever expected. If you're buying a home, go with Bill Black, period. I'm glad we did, and if we ever move, we're going with him again. Thanks Bill!

The Bill Black team did an outstanding job of walking us through the selling process. They understand in depth the local market place, what to expect from the competition and what it takes to properly get your house ready to sell. They also do not know the meaning of the word quit. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home here in the Omaha Metro area.

I cannot recommend Bill Black and his team highly enough. His focus on helping professionals transition to a new city and new home is a passion that he takes seriously. He is knowledgeable on all aspects of realty and will represent your best interests at all times. Bill more importantly is a highly principled individual who has supported us during challenging real estate transactions. He is a clear communicator and never have I sensed any pressure from him or his team. Bill will be my realtor for all future deals in the Omaha area.
