William Kane Halick has been involved in real estate and finance since his undergraduate days of University in 2000. He took up the field because he has always been interested in buying real estate which led to a burning desire to understand how the financing of properties works– he’s managed to turn this passion into a long and successful career.
Today William’s real estate expertise and philosophy revolves around the financial underpinnings of property ownership. The strategic long-term decision making that encompasses the financial structuring of the deal in order to maximize value and minimize risk. “A client’s decision for buying will impact how and why a deal should be structured in a certain way,” he says. “Buying in a high tax, high price region such as the Tri-State area has led me to distill property ownership as a trade-off between price, location, cash-flow and risk.” “It is so important to have a serious long term strategy before you go out and start shopping for homes—you’ve got to think things through to have the full picture of what you’re getting into.”
William was raised in New Jersey and splits his time between NJ and Puerto Rico. He holds a BA in History and a minor in International Studies. He’s completed the Financial Times top ranked Executive MBA from Rutgers University. William has also taken courses on Mortgage Backed Securities at the New York Institute of Finance. He began his career at Foxtons Financial, a real estate and mortgage company, then served as an Account Executive with JPMorganChase in their wholesale mortgage lending division, and ultimately founded Aceltis Financial Group in 2003, a licensed mortgage brokerage, where he is the company’s CEO. Recently, re-branded as Aceland Mortgage LLC, with corporate headquarters now located in San Juan, Puerto Rico Aceland is poised for growth and is excited for the next 20 years and beyond!
