William Marquess "Skipper"

  • I am originally from Ruxton in Baltimore studied filmmaking in Vermont at Windham College and worked for CBS, NBC and ABC as a northeast new stringer. Following the Lake Placid Winter Olympics in 1980 I moved to Oxford. My first impression of Oxford was "it's just like New England only flat and warm". I got my first job in maryland working for Sports Scene Magazine at Channel 2 in Baltimore. With the change over from Film to Video tape I retired to the Oxford Strand to sell windsurfers and work at the Masthead Restaurant as a bartender. In 1986 I passed my Real Estate exam and went to work as a full time Realtor. I started a Boutique Real Estate business known as Tred Avon Properties which I then sold to Coldwell Banker.  When my non-compete expired I decided to join forces with Exit Latham Realty.

    Over the years I have assisted by being the listing or sales agent for a number of noteable properties on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in Talbot, Dorchester and Queen Anne County including Deepwater Point, Hills Cove Farm, Windy River, Wintersell, Shipyard Point, Long Point, Middle Springs, Ingleton Manor, Woodwinds, Beverly, Little Beverly and Rabbit Point.  In addition to properties on the Eastern Shore I have helped buyers in Baltimore County and Middleburg Virginia.  With my International Property designation I have also assisted in a purchase in France and the Turks & Caicos Islands.

    I have helped found the Oxford Business Association. I am still a founding member and also sit on the board for the Tred Avon Players. I am the Fleet Admiral of the Cardboard Boat Races that raises funds for the Special Olympics of Maryland and have been for the last 16 years. I am a Past Vice President of the Oxford Museum and on occasion will give Historic Tours of Oxford and assist with the July Fourth Celebration in the Oxford Park and Oxford Ghost Walks. I currently reside in Oxford with my wife Leigh and my daughter Galen.

    What I like the best about the real estate business is helping people.  If I can find you just the right house and I see you years later and the first thing you tell me is we are still in our house and just love it then I know I did well and that makes me smile.
