He was associated with two other commercial real estate companies in Dallas before starting his own brokerage and investment company in 1984.
In a career change, in the summer of 1996, Bill began publishing “Koenig’s Watch,” a weekly summary of important Middle East news from Dallas. He moved to the Internet in 1997, expanding the coverage to international news and changing the name to “Koenig’s International News” (http://watch.org).

In February 2004, he authored “Eye to Eye – Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel,” which was revised and updated in July 2006.
He writes a weekly 12-page news report called “Koenig’s Eye View from the White House,” that focuses on world news that is biblically relevant and White House news from a Christian perspective.
