Billy Long

 

Real Estate Agent & Founder

Property Specialties headquartered in the majestic City of Mission Viejo, California, and brings over twelve (14) years of residential and commercial real estate experience in property management and investments.  Billy became a Southern California native in 2002 and is originally from Fayetteville, Arkansas….

After arriving to Southern California, Billy immediately began his career with RIGID Power Tools and BEHR Paint to become a top Sales Executive working with one of the largest retailers Home Depot.  During his tenure as a Sales Executive, Billy had successfully managed the Southern California territory that included the counties of Orange, Los Angeles, Inland Empire, and San Diego.  With the exposure and experience working within his territory, Billy was able to effectively connect with a large volume of clients and heavily study the different counties and cities he had directly managed.

In 2005, Billy went on to launch Property Specialties, LLC, having worked in collaboration with a prominent real estate investor specializing in repurposing affluent luxury residential homes and managing both commercial and residential properties

In 2007 during the economic downturn, Property Specialties primarily focused on property management due to the high demand of distressed loans for clients such as investor portfolios, nationwide banks and mortgage companies.

As the progression of the real estate market began to improve and managing properties slowly receded, Billy sought exciting opportunities within the commercial lending sector focusing on private equity that aided lenders with tight funding restrictions.  Billy was hand-picked and recruited by a premier commercial real estate firm located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and had generated innumerable business opportunities within Southern California.

In 2015, Billy earned his California Real Estate License and repositioned Property Specialties to a real estate sales organization working in concert with well-renowned firm Keller Williams Realty, Inc. and Realty One Group. After closing $9,880,000 in his first year Billy partnered with one of the largest boutique firms in Southern California” Balboa Real Estate” in order to offer the most competitive options for his clients.

Billy holds memberships in association with the Orange County Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors. With Billy’s background and expertise having serviced all of Southern California, Billy’s focal point with special emphasis are in South Orange County.

Billy Long is a very humbled being with a big heart and one of the most charismatic and personable people you’ll ever know!  He loves the phrase “Living the Dream” and his motivational slogan “Passion for Real Estate”.  Raised in a home of humbled beginnings with deep southern roots, Billy never takes life for granted and always counts his blessings. Billy is often complimented for his calm presence and patient demeanor along with his infectious southern hospitality when encountering diverse groups of people and situations.

Retaining Billy Long as your leading Professional Real Estate Representative will be an invaluable investment to you and your property and will lead to a successful and long-term relationship!
