Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Lynnfield, MA.
I very much enjoyed working with Bill as a real estate agent. Whenever I had a question or concern, he always returned my call or e-mail promptly. Bill was very understanding of how stressful this process can be, and always made an exceptional effort to make it as painless and easy as I could have expected. Bill is very invested in working with his customers - He even attending the final closing with me, even though he wasn't required to do so. I am very happy that I chose to work with Bill through this process, and would recommend him highly to anyone about to begin the housing hunt!
Bill was awesome to work with! For a couple of years he helped us judge the market and when it was time for us to sell, he gave us great advice and connected us with excellent home staging and photography experts. Our home sold within 3 days thanks to his advice and knowledge of what buyers were looking for, and his negotiation skills with our buyer were equally impressive! We recommend Bill to everyone we know buying or selling!
We were selling a piece of land through IRC-1031 Property Exchange by long-distance communication, having been relocated to California for five years. Bill was responsive, in spite of the time difference of three hours, often sending us email late in the evening. He was diligent in overcoming snags to make the transaction smooth. He was always professional, efficient and pleasant.It was a pleasure working with him.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Stoneham, MA.
We got Bill's name from a RE/MAX agent in Missouri who was helping us buy a new home. We needed to sell our Stoneham home. How did someone is Missouri know he was worth recommending? We had sold a couple of inherited properties in the last few years, so we knew something of the process. Bill took us through all the usual steps, but did them all better than I had come to expect. Based on the size, location, and potential price range of the home, he advised us on what to do to sell it quickly at a good price. We took his advice, including some recommendations on people to help us prepare the home for sale. Once it was ready, it sold in 3 days for more than the asking price, which was already at the top of the range. I don't think it is possible to do better than that.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Burlington, MA.
Bill was very fantastic in selling our home in Medford and purchasing our new home in Burlington. The sale of the Medford home was complicated by the economic downturn, a new baby, AND by a city mistake that flooded our basement. But he hung with us through it all and we sold for a good price.
Its also worth noting that we dragged our feet a little and didn't implement his modest reccomended kitchen upgrades right away. But once we finally did, the house sold in a snap. So don't drag your feet and follow his advice!
As for our new home, we searched for a bit, and Bill was able to hone in on what we were looking for. He helped steer us to Burlington, which we might not otherwise have thought of, and now we LOVE the town! Negotiations were pretty painless and we were able to get some seller concessions for some repair work that was necessary. Now we're in our new home and loving it.
Bill has now built a relationship with us over these last couple years, and if we move again in this area, we would not hesitate a moment to use him again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Melrose, MA.
Bill helped us find the perfect house off market. We were able to negotiate a very fair price for the house before the seller's listed it on the market. Bill's excellent communication and attention to detail made the entire process go so smoothly. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and family and am so grateful for the time and effort he put in to ensuring that we were satisfied with our purchase.
