Bill Main Sr.  

Re/Max

Bill was born on June 13, 1928 in Camas, Washington to William and Irma Main. He was raised primarily in Portland and on the Oregon Coast. In his junior high school year his father, an engineer working at Grand
Coulee Dam, moved the family to a cattle ranch in Okanogan County . It was there that the Omak High football player met and fell in love with cheerleader, Norma Medford. Norma was the absolute love of Bill’s life and they were married for 62 years.

Bill joined the United States Marine Corps after high school
graduation and when his stint was completed, Bill and Norma together attended EWU, earning their education degrees prior to marrying on September 16, 1950.

They both obtained jobs in the same Oregon school district. After a brief career in education, Bill and Norma, moved to Spokane, with Bill beginning his business career and Norma raising their three children.

Bill began his real estate career in the 1950s and founde d Main Realty in 1959. Over the ne xt 40 years, he expanded the Real Estate Brokerage to, at one point, over 150 brokers, developed thousands of building lots and built hundreds of homes from Libby, Montana to Sandpoint/Schweitzer, Idaho, Liberty Lake and Spokane Metro including Suncrest, Hangman Hills, Shilo Hills and several others. Real Estate was his passion and his
biggest joy was working with the people that were attracted to the business – who tended to be self-starting, self-reliant and in dependent. Bill’s enthusiasm would recruit people to the business and he would mentor them through the learning stages. His hallmark/reputation was honesty and integrity.

Each year, the Spokane Home Builders Association honors a member or members whose leadership and vision have impacted the local housing industry and SHBA.
