Bought a home in 2012.
Will was great. He showed us houses for over a year until we finally found one. We must have looked at every house within our price range in the area we were looking. He was very patient and understanding the entire time. This was our first time buying a house and Will was very helpful walking us through the entire process, along with helping us find what we were looking for and within our budget. He also was invaluable when it came time to deal with the bank during the closing process. If it wasn't for him making some phone calls at key times our closing date would have probably gone past the date we had to move out of our apartment, which would have been very inconvenient to say the least. We heard plenty of horror stories about realtors, so we feel we lucked out with Will and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Lakeview, Buffalo, NY.
Will assisted in finding my first home, so I can't speak in comparison to other realtors, but I would definitely use Will again and have referred others to him already. When I first met with Will, I gave him a very specific description of what I was looking for (a double in north buffalo). At the very first property it was easy to see that will knew what he was doing as he was assessing the condition of the roof from the street. When entering the house we immediately went to the basement to assess the actual important aspects of the house(electrical, heat, water, foundation) and worked our way up. Unfortunately, over the span of about 16 months we looked at roughly 75+ properties but were unable to make a purchase. Finally, Will asked to trust him and go out on a limb for some properties out of my comfort zone. I obliged, and after the 3rd property I purchased my first home (a 3 unit in Allentown). Without Will it's likely I would be looking at my 100+ property today.

Bought a home in 2012.
Will is very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods of Buffalo and has a kind Buffalonian attitude. Although he is still young, he worked hard to get us the perfect house and had a great support system behind him in Hunt. We were always able to get in touch with Will, whether by phone, text, or email. He was patient in our search, showing me & my husband dozens of houses over a year period until we found the right one. I would highly recommend Will and plan to seek him out in our next house search.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $50K in Black Rock, Buffalo, NY.
After selling my primary home in April of 2012 I was considering the idea of purchasing a home with the proceeds of my sale. I used William for that sale and I knew he was the right man for the job to help me in finding a home that I could start my own life in. Since moving back in with my father I was itching to find a house. Looking online at everything remotely in my price range Will was right there helping me, telling me maybe that 'that one won't work out' and guiding me into looking at other homes. I know I was being a pain but I knew Will would tell it to me straight. When the property of 237 Dearborn St came up he knew to bring me right in. He just sold the property next door earlier that year and he knew the area well. He assisted me in everything, took me into see the home, set me up with a great home inspector and dove right into the negotiations. As soon as I knew it, I had the house! He got everything done in a timely manner, also set me up with a great attorney and a few months later I was in my own house! Anything I needed Will was right there for me and I would not have anyone else but him be my number one choice for my realtor in the future!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Front Park, Buffalo, NY.
My experience with William Abels could not have been better. Going through the whole process from getting the house ready for sale all the way to the closing date, Will was excellent and attentive. Any problem and I mean ANY problem, he was always right there ready to handle it even when he did not need to. I would highly recommend Will to anybody I knew who was looking for a responsible and caring realtor in the Buffalo area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Amherst, NY.
Will helped us find our dream home! He was always readily available to schedule showings and answered our calls around the clock. As first-time homebuyers, he made the process super easy. He was great with the negotiations and answered all of our questions and concerns along the way. We can't thank Will enough for such a smooth process!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $50K in North Park, Buffalo, NY.
Will spent countless hours showing me houses, and when I finally found the one I wanted, he made certain that I got the best deal possible. His negotiating skills saved me thousands of dollars. When he sold my house he brought in an offer almost 20,000 thousand dollars better than other offer before. I would and do recommend Will Abels to anyone who is selling their home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Kenmore, NY.
Will was fantastic to work with during our search for the perfect home. As first-time home buyers, the options were overwhelming, but Will made it easy for us to understand the process and guided us through. He was easily accessible, extremely professional and also very personable. He went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable, and I would highly recommend him and will likely work with him again if the opportunity arises.

Bought a home in 2011.
Do be afraid to work with a young realtor. Will has lived in the area forever and knows a great deal about Buffalo and the surrounding area. I have a sneaking suspicion that he never sleeps because he makes himself available any time. I do not think that I ever waited more than 5 minutes to hear back from him. My boyfriend and I do not feel that Will pressured us into anything that we did not feel comfortable with. He is more than happy to answer any questions about a property and does not try to sugarcoat anything in order to get a sale. We feel very fortunate to have stumbled across him because we have met “seasoned” realtors who are not as honest and can be just plain sleazy. Since we are first time home buyers Will very carefully explained the whole process to us and made sure that we knew what we had to do. We happily recommend Will to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home or even rent out an apartment. He makes this stressful change from being a renter to a homeowner very easy because of his knowledge, humor, and sincerity. If we ever decide to move we will be asking Will to be our selling agent too.
