Overall, it's been an amazing experience.
Overall, it's been an amazing experience. William describes himself as making real estate simple and stress-free and he accomplishes this (easily!).
It seems to me that there are a lot more real estate people who can help you find a house instead of one who can sell your house. In my opinion, the latter is a significantly more difficult task (especially with the economy the way it is now). Well, I'm writing this review because of how happy I am with my realtor (who is doing a spectacular job handling the sale of my home).
To make a long story short, my husband and I first tried selling our house in 2010 (ha!), but have ended up living in it because we couldn't find a realtor who could send us good listings and was smart enough to give us a solid price for our home. This year, I was determined to sell the house and began my search all over again. William contacted me after I requested more information on a random website. After talking for a few minutes, he sent me a list of homes with a short opinion from him on each home that same afternoon. Even though other real estate people wound up contacting us, we went with William because of his attention to detail. We checked out a few houses that we really liked and decided to let William give us a quote on our home. A day later, he came over and brought us a packet showing us the prices of homes that had been recently sold around us and gave us a price range he justified with numbers and neighborhood information. My husband and I talked it over and told him how we wanted to buy a larger house, but didn't want to move out of the one we lived in before moving into the new house. He wasn't deterred by the fact that our house was going to be shown with us still living in it. He has been very helpful with helping me coordinate things that needed to be done at the house (e.g., minor repairs, carpet cleaning, painting, etc.) that I can't attend to because of my work schedule. He keeps me informed by phone and email of the status of our home and anything else I need to know. We are going into escrow soon on the house we're buying and paying for it with the house we're selling (plus a small mortgage William found for us at 3.5%).
In the past I've worked with realtor (pros) who treated my house as if it were beneath them (as it was worth less than $300,000) or people who had too much on their plate to really dedicate enough time and energy to selling it. William is making it seem that selling our house is his one and only priority and that it is not a question of "if" it is going to sell. It is just the "when" that we can't be sure about.
Being a part of Team William has been (by far) my most positive experience working with a realtor for either buying or selling a home. I wish all you home sellers (first time or not) out there good luck. If you have a great realtor like William, your home will sell sooner rather than later!
