The houses Cecil Hill Jr. helps clients buy and sell aren’t made of cards, but the real estate agent’s likeness to actor Kevin Spacey makes it easy to see how people could get confused.
Harford Countians regularly approach Hill and ask whether he is Spacey, star of the Netflix hit series “House of Cards.”
“It’s always good for a laugh,” says Hill, a Bel Air resident who works for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
Hill grew up in Havre de Grace — and in the real estate business. Both of his parents were agents and property managers, so he witnessed early on the importance of professionalism and building trustworthy relationships, he says.
“Real estate is essentially a people business, and I truly enjoy helping my clients navigate the complicated process of buying and selling their homes,” he says. “… I firmly believe that if you are honest and treat people right, you will always have plenty of business.”
A licensed Realtor for 29 years, Hill has represented clients for everything from investment properties and starter homes to farms and million-dollar waterfront residences. His business is also a family affair. Hill’s wife, Sandy, oversees bookkeeping, while his two teenage daughters help with mailings and marketing.
