Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Reading, PA.
Jerry Pelker served as my buyer's agent and did a great job in helping me land a beautiful house that fit my budget, tastes and connected me with great financing. Jerry is personable and exemplified the value of long-term relationship building as he worked with me for over a year to land the right house at the right time. Jerry was a patient, detail-oriented professional who taught me a ton about real estate and the buying process in general. He was a pleasure to work with throughout our time together. The overall support from Sands & Company, including Bill Sands, the broker, particularly his experience and influence of the local region and housing regulations also added substantial value to the package of having Sands & Co. represent me in buying my first home. Would do business with them again!
They were amazing Jerry was my realtor and he was simply amazing he couldn't have made the experience any better. We had never bought a home before we didn't know what we were doing and Jerry helped and explained everything thing the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Sands & Company helped us navigate through a very long and arduous process of purchasing a home. They came to us with an incredible opportunity to purchase a home. I had given them a list of what we were interested in, and shortly thereafter, they had the perfect home for us. The list we gave them was nearly impossible to meet, and yet, they did. When we saw the home for the first time, we instantly fell in love with it, but there were some hoops to jump through before everything could happen. Sands & Company was by our side every step of the way. They taught us everything about the challenges we faced, gave us examples of how to renovate the home, showed us comparable properties, showed us the true value of the home before and after renovations and mentored us through the entire process. The process, beyond all of our control, took over 8 months, and they held our hand through everything. There were periods of concern that were immediately handled by Sands & Company. There were a million questions and they answered them all. We had no idea what we were doing, but we were completely confident and had total peace of mind through everything, because we knew Sands & Company was by our side. All the way up through the final signature, they helped us every step with guidance and assurance. We knew exactly what we needed to do on the day of settlement. In spite of all of the paperwork and procedures over the course of 8 months and during the settlement, everything was easy - they handled it. We would never have this house without Sands & Company. I can't imagine how awful it would have been to attempt this without them. In my line of business, I have extremely frequent interaction with Realtors. No one is anywhere near the same league as Sands & Company. They understand that it is more than just a purchase. They bring very specific and unique skills to the table, unrivaled by anyone else I've had experience with. From their ability to stage and photograph your home with breathtaking results, to their design expertise for your new home, it's a completely different experience to work with people of their caliber.
The team at Sands & Company was very professional and knowledgable. We initially set the price of our home higher than they recommended. The home sat on the market with not much activity for several months. Once we adjusted the price to Bill and Jerry's original suggested price, we began to receive more requests for showings. Moral of the story: trust their knowledge of the industry and follow their instructions and you will sell your property!

Good guys seems like they actually care about you... If and when I buy another home I'm going through them. Anytime I had questions or needed help they responded almost immediately. Extensive knowledge of the business as well. Willing to work with you and get in the best price possible.
The best thing about Sands & Company was that they helped me to stay on top of the process and all the things that needed to be taken care of as the seller. Any time I would start to procrastinate there was a phone call checking on items that needed to be taken care of, I appreciated that help!
I had a very positive experience with Sands & Company and highly recommend their services. Living out of state we had limited time to work face-to-face with Bill and Jerry. They were able to conduct most of our business electronically. They approached the sale of our property very professionally. I felt like they had my interests in mind during the entire process. They went above and beyond in the service provided and handled small details around the sale to make the experience very smooth. In the end, due to the work they did, we were able to sell the property very quickly.
Again, I highly recommend Sands & Company for their professionalism and service.

We were referred by a friend to Bill Sands, Sands & Company, to assist us in buying our first home. Through our home buying process, we looked at ALOT of homes, and we were never pressured or rushed to make a purchase. Not only did Sands & Company help find us the perfect home, but they also provided us with an education in home-buying and real estate. We will be recommending them to all of our family and friends!
