About Bill Dean
Bill Lackey has been a Residential Mortgage Loan Originator since 2002. He has assisted clients to purchase primary residences, investment property, homeowners to refinance, both rate and term and Texas Home Equity Loans and one-time close construction loans. He has resources that help clients who have a blemish or two on their credit report get it corrected and, when their credit scores improve, assist them to purchase homes. Clients who have credit issues does not mean they cannot buy a home, it just means it will take longer to work through the process to improve credit scores before they buy.
A licensed Texas Real Estate Broker since 1975, Bill has worked with homeowners, business owners and investors throughout his real estate career. Bill counsels clients step-by-step, from the early stages of the buying and selling process all the way through the closing and afterward, to ensure that they can anticipate what is expected of them as principals and he, as their Realtor, is obligated and committed to perform.
Bill does his “home work,” thoroughly analyzes market data and conveys those findings to his clients. He is careful not to promise what is not in the realm of possibility and believes strongly in the importance of remaining flexible. Bill has always been able to learn new things and change with the times, a philosophy that Bill embraces wholeheartedly.
