Bill Bodkin joined what has since become Elders Real Estate Port Macquarie in 1984.
Originally a sales agent, Bill’s talent and success saw him move quickly through the ranks to become General Manager.
His analytical and inquisitive mind – combined with a thorough understanding of real estate, complemented by an unwavering sense of commitment to clients and colleagues – has helped earn team and individual awards.
Bill’s determination and perseverance is borne out also in his numerous long-distance fundraising bike rides for multiple sclerosis research and awareness, such as the ‘Loop the Lake’ (Newcastle to Woollongong), “Round the Bay in a Day” (Melbourne) and “Rainbow Ride” (Byron Bay).
With two married daughters and five grandchildren living in Sydney, Bill and Marilyn relish the opportunities they get to be with the family.
In their free time, the couple manage to fit in boating, water skiing and caravan trips.
In September 2014 Bill was awarded the prestigious “John Greig Trophy”. This trophy is presented to an agency principal whose career has been characterised by selfless service to real estate practice, peer recognition as an industry leader and demonstrable qualities of a positive role model.
