Words from happy clients

Richard J.

Brownsville TX

"My partners and I were looking for a unique industrial site on the Cape Fear River. We required 20 acres, a six acre slip plus a railroad siding. We were looking for months to no avail. We met Bill under very unusual circumstances. When we were leaving an oceanfront restaurant in the pouring rain we noticed a man coming out of the ocean with a surfboard under his arm. Bill mentioned that he is a REALTOR. I told him the specs for the property we wanted. Bill said he would call within a week. In four days he called me to say he had found the ideal property. Indeed he did. It had everything we were looking for and more. The seller had not listed it with anyone and the seller was asking 1.5 million dollars. During the following week, Bill negotiated the price down to 1.2 million. We closed three months later."

April S.

Clayton, NC

"As a single mom, I was looking for a career with a future. I enrolled in the R.E. License Prep Course at Johnston County Community College. Bill was the instructor. Yes, he covered all the required topics but two of the non-curriculum nuggets he taught us were "the only color that matters in a real estate transaction is green" and "if you want to do business in an ethical manner every time, treat every clients transaction as if it was your OWN money". I now have the most successful team in Johnston County and I have taught all 15 of my agents the same thing that Bill taught us all those years ago."

Dannette H. 

Raleigh, NC

"I was over 60 days behind on my mortgage. My townhome was in disrepair and I didnt have any money for repairs. I was recommended to Bill by a friend. Bill helped me keep the mortgage company at bay while he aggressively marketed my home as a "fixer upper". I'm grateful that Bill kept my spirits up during the darkest time of my life and allowed me to move on."

Bob W.

Syosset, NY

"I bought an unfinished active adult community with 167 units left to be sold. Bill single handedly sold all 167 units in 15 months." 

Travis and Brett,

Greensboro, NC

"I had an opportunity to move up in the aviation design industry but it required that I relocate. We were in a very competitive RE market and the mortgage rates were high. In addition, we had only owned the home for a year and a half. Bill had an open house every weekend until it went under contract. The day before closing, the upstairs bath sprung a leak. Within hours Bill had a plumber and a sheetrocker there to make the repairs. The closing went without a hitch."
