Ask The Agents
Every week on Tuesdays we run a Facebook Live Video where our customers have the opportunity to ask our NYC Real Estate Agents their questions, as well as hear from William Bolls and his team on Real Estate news, as well as interviews with other professionals in the real estate industry.
6/27/18 – Insurance FAQs
In this edition of Ask the Agents, Althea Johnson from Allstate joins Real Estate agents William Bolls and Samuel Shoffman to cover a variety of questions that potential homeowners might have about insurance coverage for a new apartment or condo. In this video, you learn what type of insurance coverage is available for homeowners as well as what kinds of situations those packages cover in the event you need to submit a claim.
Taking the time to foster a relationship with your insurance agent and checking in on a regular basis can help keep your coverage updated depending on what has changed with your home over the year. Think you’ve made an absurd insurance claim before? Think again! Without giving too much away, it’s a wedding ring story involving show shovels.
We all know by now that you should never, ever microwave metal. But what about other common foods or household utensils that you shouldn’t be zapping? There are a few surprising things that many of us are microwaving without knowing that they could pose a risk to our safety, health, or our appliance itself. William Bolls talks here about thirteen different things that should never be microwaved, and the reasons behind each of them, to help keep you (and your food) safe.
Seasons and holidays can have a huge impact on the real estate market. This can affect your ability to buy or sell a home in the city. This information is important to know if you are planning to buy or sell, and knowing when the market is most active is key. Here, William Bolls discusses what this year’s market has been like, especially in relation to holidays, and how even things like the day of the week that a holiday falls on can affect home sales and market activity.
"William Bolls is THE broker you want when buying and selling in Manhattan"
"William Bolls is THE broker you want when buying and selling in Manhattan. He is a wealth of knowledge and really takes the time to make sure you understand the process and are getting exactly what you want. I can't recommend him highly enough, and send him to anyone I know looking to buy and sell, especially the UWS."
"Your counsel, persistence and attention to detail were critical to a successful outcome"
"From the original listing to the sale of my apartment, I realize the extent to which your counsel, persistence, and attention to detail were critical to a successful outcome. You are obviously skilled in financial negotiations, for which I am grateful."
"“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William"
“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William. As an out-of-town buyer, we faced additional challenges when we decided to buy an apartment in the city. As cliched as it sounds, William truly made us feel like his only clients. It's not a simple process and we required a decent amount of hand-holding. He was there for us every step of the way, even anticipating a lot of our concerns. One of the most valuable characteristics of a good agent is responsiveness. Any time we contacted William--and it was often--he responded quickly and completely. William will definitely be our agent on future transactions.”
"The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home"
“I worked with William over a lengthy period, trying to sell a lobby level doctor's office in a residential co-op building on the upper west side. The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home. He showed patience and was always straightforward, honest and friendly throughout the process. Definitely 5 star.”
