GET TO KNOW BILL
Bill Brooks has always been driven to help people. His faith, political beliefs, and values are what form the foundation of his actions.
The 67-year old is known by his friends and colleagues for his impeccable character and his bulldog tenacity in getting things done.
“Bill Brooks is a great man,” said Dave, a longtime friend, and a retired officer and combat veteran. He exhibits outstanding leadership skills combined with intelligence, integrity and real-world experience. His skill set is very impressive and I think he’d make a great County Commissioner. What we need is someone with strength AND common sense.
Bill served in the U.S. Army Security Agency as a linguist and interrogator during the Vietnam conflict. He held a Top Secret/Special Intelligence security clearance. He survived a long-term struggle with what was described by doctors as “terminal” Agent Orange cancer.
After his military service, Bill attended the University of Illinois and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology with a concentration in advanced Bayesian statistics. During his tenure at the University of Illinois, Bill founded and administered the Central Illinois Consumer Services, a consumer protection agency that covered fifteen counties in Illinois and worked closely with the Illinois Attorney Generals’ Consumer Fraud Division, conducting investigations and drafting litigation and legislation.
In addition to owning Bill Brooks Real Estate Company, Bill is a real estate broker, and a licensed independent insurance adjuster. Bill has been a proud member of the National Association of Realtors® since 2005 and has served the local association as a member of the Board of Directors and a member of the Professional Standards Committee. Bill frequently assists the local association in conducting mediations and serving on arbitration boards.
Prior to that, he served as a healthcare administrator in Alaska, managing hospital and health clinics in rural Alaska. His professional career spans a wide array of executive positions in healthcare and telecommunications.
Bill lives in Coeur d’Alene with his wife Bobbi. They have four children and two grandchildren.
Currently Bill helps consumers solve problems, and writes a biweekly consumer advocate column in the Coeur d’Alene Press. You can read that here.
