Bought a home in 2013.
We contacted Bill at the beginning of our house search and were thoroughly impressed throughout. We were first attracted by his responsiveness. We had another realtor recommend by friends who we planned to use them, but nights and weekends can be difficult for some. We both have difficult schedules and Bill made time in his schedule to show us homes at our convenience. Not only that, but he even worked with us well after midnight to put in an offer on a home that closed its window for bids in one day. Don't be surprised if he returns an email you send at 10pm. He is a great person for anyone with long working hours.

He is from the DC area and knows the neighborhoods down to microzones. He showed us the areas we already were targeting, and also offered to "just drive us through" a few other areas to make sure we knew everything that was out there.

Bill was also very comforting to have along due to his knowledge of house quality and safety. We were first time home buyers, and having someone along with the interest to look in basements and around the yard to ensure drainage around the house is safe, that water heaters and furnaces are working, that remodeling jobs were of high or low quality, is invaluable. It felt like walking into a house with a safety net.

He is also thorough with details in the paperwork, going through contracts line by line to ensure all is correct and catching errors. He was also great on our price negotiations. First in letting us suggest what we were comfortable with, the counseling us through different options of getting what we wanted. At the end of the day we got nearly everything we asked for, which was more than we anticipated as we asked for more than we expected.

Lastly, he was very friendly and kind throughout the process. We lost in a couple of bidding wars on houses that received numerous offers. He didn't let us get discouraged and made sure we knew that this happened to everyone and we were not doing anything wrong (very helpful to first time home buyers feeling the process getting a bit daunting).

We highly recommend Bill.
