My husband and I have worked with many realtors in buying or selling 11 homes over the years. We knew Bill only by his strong reputation when we asked him for advice in considering the sale of our Tahoe City vacation home. He responded knowledgeably, thoughtfully, and clearly. He then left us alone to decide what to do about the house. Without being intrusive, Bill brought potential buyers to us without asking for or receiving our listing. He never pressured us to commit or rush a decision. We were sufficiently impressed with his professionalism that we agreed to have him represent both parties in an exploration of a transaction. Through the entire process, Bill was in touch with us at every step, and we closed on the sale yesterday. Bill is an excellent listener and a calming influence in a stressful situation, and his strong sense of ethics governs everything he does. He is well worth your serious consideration when you need a top-rate real estate professional.
