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.”
