Buck & Associates - Over Four Decades in Arlington

The Buck story spans over four decades of community development, a legacy of service, and roots in Arlington.

All these years later, Buck & Associates is still in the same office on Wilson Boulevard—a neighborhood fixture. Long recognized as one of the region’s top commercial developers and property managers, Buck is one of the most established residential real estate firms in Arlington. William’s son, Billy, a third generation Arlingtonian, took over as CEO of the company in 2015.

In 1976, William Buck opened an insurance company on Wilson Boulevard and soon after began selling Arlington real estate as well. Buck, who was on the county’s planning commission and board of zoning appeals, advocated for ‘smart growth planning’ before it was popular. Buck was integral in developing the route for what would become the Metro Orange Line and predicted the expanding commercial real estate opportunities that would follow.
