His main focus was single and multi-family new construction developments with his many general contractor clients. Bill started McInerney Development and Union St. Properties, Inc., where he and his partner developed new buildings and renovated older properties in many of San Francisco’s finest neighborhoods.
In 2000, Bill moved to St. Helena where he designed, built and sold over a dozen luxury homes over the past ten years.

Bill McInerney is the best real estate agent we’ve ever had. He not only found us the best house, but after we closed escrow he even remodeled it for us to make it our dream house!
I wanted to write and let you know that the money's in the bank and the title's in our pocket. That was just about as smooth as it could go. You and your seller were absolutely on top of it. I wanted a transaction that would go down without a hitch and that's what I got. The reason I always try to buy a property with no contingency, cash on the barrel head, and a quick close is that it takes the agony out of a real estate transaction, which all too often can make buying a house worse than buying a used car while simultaneously getting a root canal and fending off said used car salesman.
So that's why I wanted to write you, to say thanks for a professional job, completed as if by a friend, one who had my interest in mind. You can know that next time I want to sell something in the wine country, you're the man.
We moved out of the country and put our house up for sale with Bill McInerney from Tipp Realty. We were nervous to leave our beloved house in somebody else's hands, but Bill came through in a big way for us. The house sold within days and Bill went above and beyond for us to simplify the process. I flew back into the country three days later, signed papers, moved the remainder of our stuff into a storage unit, and flew back out. Bill helped out the entire way! Truly a good guy! Plan on making friends with your realtor with Bill!
Bill McInerney was fantastic at getting our house sold for the maximum amount. The house was a rental and the last tenants were less than easy on the property to say the least. In order to get it ready for sale, significant work needed to be completed. Bill jumped right in. He completely managed our entire project and home refurbishing. He replaced two bathrooms including showers and bathtubs, painted the entire house inside and out, helped install new carpets, reworked much of the entire landscape both front and back yard, and replaced the garage door.
It almost looked like a brand new house. He was instrumental in ensuring we sell the house for tens of thousands of dollars more than we originally estimated. He was my trusted advisor on what home improvements would maximize the home value, without over paying for these improvements. Super job and executed all in less than 60 days.
