Alain Pinel Realtors is proud to announce its association with Bill Wygant. A native Californian, Bill was born in Berkeley and grew up in the Oakland Hills near Joaquin Miller Park.
Bill´s San Francisco connection is strong. His father was a Chaplin at Alcatraz Prison, and his mother was the West Coast editor for Women´s Wear Daily, as well as the owner of several local trade publications. As a three time national champion on the French horn, she also played with the San Francisco Symphony.
Bill graduated from San Francisco State University in 1973 with a degree in Theatre Arts and it was there that he met his wife, Diana. For many years Diana was the Artistic Director of the American Musical Theatre of San Jose, and she is currently the Executive Director of Pocket Opera, a small but growing San Francisco opera company. With that kind of family history it should come as no surprise that his daughter, Megan, is the Company Manager for Tony Award winning Berkeley Repertory Theater, one of the leading repertory theaters in the country .
Bill spent a major portion of his life as an airline pilot for World Airways and American Trans Air. Bill feels his time in the air was good training for his career on the ground. As a pilot he obviously used extraordinary skill, care and attention to detail to guarantee that his passengers arrived safely to their destination. As a Realtor, he applies the same standard of care to help his Buyers and Sellers navigate their real estate transactions and arrive safely at their destination too!
Bill is an avid swimmer and former President of the South End Rowing Club located at San Francisco´s Aquatic Park. He has regularly organized and swum on relay teams crossing the Catalina Channel, Lake Tahoe, Maui Channel and the Santa Barbara Channel. Most recently in August of 2007 he put together an English Channel relay team that made a successful crossing from Dover England to Cap Gris Nez France in 12 hours 6 minutes.
An integral part of Alain Pinel Realtors' dedication to excellence is the collaboration of high caliber professionals. Bill certainly fits that profile. Bill brings to APR a wealth of skill, experience and professionalism, and joins a group of distinguished real estate professionals who are all part of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced marketing firm specializing in distinctive properties and estates. Alain Pinel Realtors is dedicated to excellence and our association with Bill Wygant is a bright example.
