Background

William Harrison is a faculty lecturer of real estate finance, real estate investments and real estate principles. A South Carolina native, he earned the First Honor Graduate (valedictorian) award for his class at The Citadel with a B.S. degree in physics. He subsequently attended the international business studies graduate program at the University of South Carolina in 1976. From there, he went on to earn an MBA degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1978 with a concentration in international finance and real estate.

His more than 37 years of broad real estate experience in the private sector includes international development lending with Bank of America’s World Banking Division, national real estate investment acquisitions with the Century Partners Funds, local residential and land development, selective brokerage, and regional commercial development with the Trammell Crow Company. In addition to academic instruction, Harrison is president of the Harrison Company, which offers development advisory, general consulting and expert witness services to the real estate marketplace.

Harrison is a regular contributor of commentary to the print and broadcast media on the continuing crisis in both commercial and residential real estate as well as mortgage finance. More recently, he has undertaken guest speaker roles at conventions and seminars sponsored by financial services organizations including, among others, certified public accountants, bankruptcy attorneys, wealth advisors, tax attorneys and the Urban Land Institute.
