Bill grew up on the front range of the Rocky Mountains, in Colorado Springs, CO. He was blessed to have had the ultimate playground for a kid – foothills and mountains to hike, ski, camp, and explore. He also enjoyed playing soccer and hockey and it was his dream to play college hockey that brought him back to Minnesota. He attended Bethel University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with minors in Economics and Communication. Bill worked for two Fortune 1000 companies for over 20 years in advertising and marketing communications, where he was responsible for sales growth, leadership development, client satisfaction, and contract negotiation. He has also managed a real estate sales office with more than 80 agents, where he worked with agents and teams to improve their business systems, communications, and prospecting skills to grow their business. It was while doing this that he realized he had a passion for being a Realtor and helping clients achieve their goals. “My goal is to make my client’s home buying or selling experience successful, memorable, and fun! The Kerby and Cristina team approach makes it possible!” Bill and his wife, Diane, live in Vadnais Heights. Bill Joined the KC Team in 2017.

Bill and his team were a pleasure to work with and I had a great experience selling my old house and buying my new one! His knowledge of houses and the housing market made the process easy and enjoyable to go through. I would highly recommend working with Bill and the Kerby and Cristina team to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their house!
We had a great experience working with Bill. He is very knowledgeable and we appreciated his attention to detail. Bill provided valuable insight on the market negotiating a price and following up with issues for us to consider. We would highly recommend Bill Gilmore.
We listed our house with Bill Gilmore at Kerby and Cristina... we were impressed with every person on their team. From early photos and stager to office staff and follow through and final paperwork. They never missed a beat and made the process smooth and enjoyable. Thank you Kerby and Cristina for assembling an amazing staff. We appreciate each one of you.
I want to thank Bill and the entire team at Kerby and Cristina for an exceptional home purchase and home sale experience. Bill found us the perfect new townhome and paved the way for us to get a bridge loan so we could take more time to downsize and move out of the home we’d been in for 30 years. This was a lifesaver for us. Then the sale of our existing home was seamless also. Bill was on top of everything. I was never stressed about what was coming up next. Every detail, small and large, was taken care of with the utmost professionalism. Bill was kind and understanding with our unique situation and offered many suggestions/tools that we were able to use to make the sale process as easy and profitable as possible. I highly recommend Bill Gilmore and team. What a fantastic experience!
