The story behind a bow and a farm is unique, but not unusual.

It all starts in Lyndhurst, New Jersey, where two people learned how hard work and community can make things grow.


Bill Abbott is a Trusted Choice® Independent Insurance Agent. He treats his hobbies like work, so it’s no surprise that he chooses to pursue the skill of bow hunting during his free time. The very attributes that make him a successful bow hunter are the same attributes that led him to success in his career.

Fernando Semiao has a deep appreciation for the land. Born in Brazil, he moved with his parents to the US at the age of 4 months. Encouraged by his father, Fernando began investing in real estate and now owns a real estate business. His love for the land, his father’s example, and the stories of the pioneers inspired him to purchase his own farm.

For Fernando, having someone like Bill by his side as he runs his real estate business is invaluable. As for Bill, the opportunity to work with a client who shares his values is the greatest reward for him as an agent. And working together, they have the satisfaction of helping families achieve their goals and enjoy the security a home can provide.
