Professional Experience

Whether in his role as Facility Manager for a major multi-market institutional occupier where project and move management were primary responsibilities, or as Real Estate Manager where multiple owners require his acumen for attention to detail and follow up, William Shy’s experience and core understanding of construction and project management make him a natural leader in the field of asset services.

As Real Estate Manager Bill performs a full range of asset management services including lease negotiations, budgets and planning, financial management, operational evaluation and contract administration; he oversees ground-up developments, tenant build-out projects and capital improvement projects. Bill is also tasked as the Facility Condition Assessment liaison for all management projects in Mid and West Michigan. His extensive insight in the areas of project management, retail management, national occupiers, and institutional budgeting and reporting, make his alliance with Martin Commercial Properties a perfect fit.
