William R. VanderSluis

Mcshane & Bowie PLC

WilliamVanderSluis has an extensive transactional real estate practice that spans agricultural law to zoning law and everything in between.

To William, every matter is a puzzle that needs deciphering and solving, a perspective that helps him minimize risk for the banks, developers, investors, farmers, and individuals he represents. It’s often said that hiring William is like buying an insurance policy – if there’s a problem, he’ll find it and fix it now, saving unnecessary time and expense later.

This is particularly true with the title work and survey reviews William performs. On several occasions, he has uncovered unperfected interests and obscure deed restrictions, pitfalls that would have exposed the client to risk and liability had they gone undetected. He has also saved clients thousands of dollars in real estate taxes through the creative use of tax cap exemptions at the time clients purchase appreciated lake front homes and other property.

The real estate matters William handles include purchases and sales, title transfers, mortgage and loan documentation, all types of leases, easements, cell tower and wind turbine leases, zoning, and land use involving residential, condominium, multi-family, commercial, industrial, and special use properties. He counsels farmers and agribusinesses on issues such as government benefits, subsidies, tax breaks, and incentives.

William currently sits on the City of Wyoming Zoning Board of Appeals, and he is an affiliate member of the Commercial Alliance of Realtors, serving on the organization’s Forms Committee to standardize transactional documents and practices. He also mentors students at Burton Elementary School, helping them improve their academic performance, social skills, and self-esteem.
