Bill Mackey, ALC, CCIM, Certified General Appraiser
First and foremost, I am married to Lori Mackey, who was born in Sumter County, Alabama and graduated with an education degree from Auburn University and earned a Master's in Education from the University of West Alabama. She was a successful reading coach at Sunshine Elementary School, now she sells houses for BMRE.

I am the proud and happy father of a seventeen-year-old daughter (as of 2/18) and eleventh-grader at Demopolis High School here in Demopolis. She is an exceptional performer and entertainer, equestrian and enjoys singing, dancing, puppies, and horses. She is my true joy in life, next to my wife.

I was born and raised in Demopolis, AL was I first developed my love for land as a young boy by working cattle, fixing fences, and bailing hay on my grandparents' farm in Uniontown, a small town twenty miles east of Demopolis. There I learned the value of hard work, the impact of keeping your word, and the importance of building strong relationships with people in the community.

I worked my way through school as a veterinarian assistant, shoeing horses at Auburn University, where I studied Animal and Dairy Science. On my summers off, I worked as a wrangler in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at the R Lazy S Ranch taking tourists on overnight horse-packed camping trips. The Teton Mountains views of Jackson Hole and vast landscapes of Yellowstone National Park only further instilled a love for the land and the outdoors I still embrace today.

After graduating from Auburn, I moved back to Uniontown to begin my career as a cattleman and catfish farmer. Farming was very difficult in the early 80's with interest rates hovering around 20%, and in 1984 I began my career in real estate selling land and while also venturing into the restaurant business. I opened a restaurant in Faunsdale, Alabama known as the Faunsdale Bar and Grill and helped start the Alabama Crawfish Festival.

I am a former Perry County Cattleman's Association President, I am on the vestry for both St. Michael's and Church of the Holy Cross Episcopal churches in Faunsdale and Uniontown, I am on the Board of Directors for the Point Clear Polo Club and have been a member for over 20 years, a Demopolis Rotarian, a Chairman of the Marengo County Economic Development Board, and a pilot since 1984.

In addition to agricultural land brokerage, I also specialized in agricultural land appraisals and hold a Certified General Appraisal License along with the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) and Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designations. I have been the market leader in land transactions for over a decade in the Black Belt Region and continue to offer first-rate products and services to all my clients.
