About WILLIAM GANZ
Among other accolades, Ganz represented a record-breaking $6.25 million sale in 2017 and is consistently sought after for his unparalleled track record of success within the region. He has an extensive client base featuring those who seek the luxury lifestyle including heads of industry, celebrities, professional athletes, and investors.
He enjoys contributing to media coverage on the real estate industry and has been featured in Baltimore Magazine, The Baltimore Sun, The New York Post, Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine, Canadian Real Estate Magazine and Curbed.com with his editorial commentary and features on his real estate listings.
William graduated from Shenandoah University with a Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) in 1999 and from Loyola College in Maryland with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in 2002.
When he is not pursuing real estate, Ganz enjoys travelling, boating, social golfing, and spending time with his adopted Greyhound dog Flint. The duo resides along the Inner Harbor, Baltimore waterfront.
A former collegiate baseball pitcher, Ganz placed third in the nation in strikeouts per nine innings during his senior year. Never one to shy away from risk and adventure, Ganz personally captained his first boat during a three-week nautical journey from the Gulf Coast of Florida to the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland in 2007.
William also understands the importance of giving something back to the communities in which we live and work. His community outreach efforts include working on projects with various community agencies such as Our House, The Columbia Association, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The United Way, and donations to various animal organizations.
One of William's proudest success stories was his full sponsorship of a student athlete from the Dominican Republic who pursued his dream of attending college and playing college baseball in the United States.
In His Own Words...
Q: What’s the most gratifying thing about being in the real estate business?
A: Being a real estate broker affords me the opportunity to make meaningful connections with such a large variety of people. At the end of the day we are all human beings and I think that gets lost sometimes. Whether it is helping the wife of one of the Baltimore Orioles that just got traded to the team find a place to live in the midst of a significant life change (suddenly moving to a new city where they don’t know anybody) to helping a family downsize from a larger property in the county to a smaller waterfront location in Baltimore or the first time home buyer that is excited to live the city lifestyle, every step of the way is so important to each of them and I love being able to help with this journey.
Q: What’s the most important piece of advice you give sellers preparing their home for sale and/or buyers getting into the market?
A: Sellers should realize that buyers have far more information at their fingertips than ever before, and typically know the fair market value of a home. Having a pricing strategy is critical to maximizing proceeds on the sale of a home. Shockingly enough, another thing that I would point out is the importance of using professional photography in the marketing of a home. While this is something that I feel should go without saying, it never ceases to amaze me at how many homes are still promoted on the MLS with mediocre photography.
A: For buyers entering the market, I think they need to realize that they make their money when they buy their home, not when they sell it. While they may not receive their actual sale proceeds until they eventually sell their home, what they actually pay for the home dictates those proceeds. With the market being increasingly more competitive with each month that passes by this year, I urge buyers to remain cautious when knowingly overpaying on a property in order to be the successful buyer in a bidding scenario.
