Bill was amazing. Not only did he know what to do but he got on to it immediately and pushed us to prepare our condo for the sale. Everyone who viewed the condo made an offer. We accepted an offer 3 days into the sale! - Tou Mosh

A few personal observations on Mr. Bill Papaioannou, real estate agent for Re-Max Realty. My stepfather passed away last August and myself and my 2 sisters were named executors for his estate. Never selling a piece of property before we each had in mind who we would like to represent us in the selling of my step fathers home. Checking credentials on our 3 choices we unanimously chose Bill because of his long record of selling houses in the Hamilton area. Bill got right on the job organizing, listing and showings to potential clients. The house was sold above asking price in a week and a half. We found Bill personable, knowledgeable and attentive in our needs. Bill is the consummate professional in dealing with real estate and would not hesitate to recommend him to other potential clients. - rainer hofmann

This was our first time using Bill. It was a residential home listed due to a death in the family. Bill was very respectful of our situation and an excellent resource for us on the current market conditions and strategies needed in today’s market to sell a house. Bill and his team took some incredible pictures for the listing. We listed the house, bids were taken a week after the initial listing and we were shocked at the success that Bill created for us. We had several offers and eventually came down to a bidding war. Bill ended up getting us an offer much higher than the asking price of the house and our entire family is extremely happy with the outcome. He is a very knowledgeable realtor and made us all feel very comfortable about a stressful situation. We will DEFINITELY use Bill again and highly recommend anyone else to do the same. - Neli Kennedy

This is the second time I have used Bill to buy and now sell my home. I feel extremely fortunate that I did. He has a great team and utilizes their strengths to do the absolute best job for his clients. His associate Greg Rozakis is always such a pleasure and goes above and beyond as does Bill. The advise that they both have to get the house ready was very helpful and Greg even stayed late into the evening to capture the best night time photos himself to really show off my home and backyard. My situation was both unique and sensitive during the sale of my home and the outcome that Bill delivered was beyond my expectation and definitely best case scenario while always being mindful of the unique limitations. Bill has a fantastic and far reaching professional network which makes him as a realtor invaluable. He had my home sold within four hours of being “on the market” and above asking without multiple offers because of his skilled negotiating. Bill also assisted my oldest daughter and her boyfriend in finding their first apartment and not only is it gorgeous and affordable but it was such a positive experience for a first step out of the nest! Thank you Bill and Greg for your outstanding service! - AM

My wife and I were very pleased with how Bill orchestrated the transactions. Bill took the time to explain the process and coached us on what price point would get us the best response from the marketplace. During our negotiations, Bill helped us navigate through a particularly challenging situation by making a move to rectify this sticky issue; he took ownership by 'inserting' himself in the equation in a manner as to not upset the parties involved. My wife and I found Bill to be open minded and pragmatic in his approach. He pulled all the right strings to get the deal done. He did not let people's egos get in the way. BTW, we did not want or have an open house. Bill agreed and explained that only 3% of purchases happen because of open houses. We wanted serious buyers not 'tire kickers'...and we got one. A big thank-you to Bill and his team of professionals. The one big thing that stood out for me was Bill's responsiveness. We began our purchase/sales process on Easter weekend!... Within 5 days we had purchased the new dwelling and put our house on the market & received a firm offer. It would have been up sooner, but we needed a day to get our house ready for showcasing. We highly recommend Bill. - Alexander Huang

Bill Papaioannou is the consummate professional. He sold our home in just two days after twenty viewings, at well above the asking price and with no conditions. My wife knew instinctively that we would be listing with Bill after our first meeting. His honesty, friendliness and genuine concern for you are readily evident. Bill did a comprehensive market analysis on our home, showed us the comparables and listed our home at the right price. He has also assembled an amazing support team of experts in home repair, staging, photography and importantly, to help you to find you your next home. With thirty years of knowledge and experience Bill's negotiating skills really shine out. My wife and I sat with him as we watched him get the best price possible while always treating all offers with respect and equal consideration. You may find agents out there that try to plaster the local media with advertising in hopes of getting you to list with them. This does not necessarily translate into getting the best price. With Bill Papaioannou however you are getting the real deal! - Theresa and Mike Eastham

Bill brought lost of buyers to our home and just when we were about to throw in the towel, Bill pulls out not One, not Two, but Four Rabbits out of the Hat! We got a surprisingly excellent offer, we could not refuse. Bill's excellent listening skills and respect produced some great homes for us to look at. Within 2 weeks it was all said and done and we are already moving into our next family home. - Mary Anna and Ruslan

Selling a home can be a challenging and tense process, but Bill made the entire endeavor, a joyful experience. He quickly provided direction, as to any repairs needed. He provided the repair man, who charged me low repair costs. He staged the house, and brought a professional photographer to take pictures for marketing/advertising purposes, which were fantastically done. He even helped me with getting the legal fees taken care of. Most importantly, upon reflection, he sold my house for above the asking price, in less than two weeks, (and this was when the market wasn't even doing well). He is extremely professional, an experienced and diligent go getter, an excellent communicator, and someone who with great real estate knowledge, gets the job done really fast, at the ease of his client. He's also a great, honest and friendly guy, who made great effort to get to know me and my family, and my definite recommended goto person, with anything related to real estate, even outside of the greater Hamilton area. Thanks Bill, for all that you have done for me and my family. Your the best! - Stavros Chatzis

We’d had our house up in the late summer into fall with another real estate agency, and although we got a few offers they were mostly lowballs, with a ton of conditions. We decided to pull the house down and try our luck again in January. Which is when we contacted Bill Papaioannou. From the start it was apparent Bill was working very hard for us, informing us how to best position and stage our home to appeal to potential buyers. The photos and photographer he used were very professional, all of it was up online (including a full 3d tour) inside 24 hours. The level of professionalism we received was definitely upscale and focused. Better than we have received in the past. Our home was up for just over a week, and despite there being a couple of crazy blizzards during that time, on the eleventh day, we had a great offer for exactly the price and closing we wanted. The entire experience could not have been more perfect. Bill Papaioannou, as well as his assistant Greg Rozakis, did an absolutely amazing job for us, I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in Hamilton. - Alistair

I hired Bill to represent me to sell a very unique property in Hamilton near the Go Train Station. Immediately after signing the Listing Agreement I realized Bill was the right choice to get my property sold. Too often after signing a Listing Agreement in the past with other properties my experience had often been that the Agent would wait for the property to sell itself. NOT Bill Papaioannou !! Bill mobilized his resources immediately--- a cleaning staff onsite within hours; then a first rate Home Stager to decorate the property; photographer with amazing pictures and articulate listing description. Finally he started an extensive marketing campaign, both Online and within the Real Estate Agent community, to get this property profiled. A week later Bill had 3 strong competing Offers arrive within hours... WOW ! Bill managed the three Offers professionally allowing each a fair opportunity to put their best foot forward... he genuinely wanted the principles of the free market to get me the best price while at the same time treat each prospective Buyer with fairness. If you value integrity as much as I do you will appreciate that this spoke volumes about Bill's ethics. So... he got me a whopping $ 23,000.000 over asking with a clean offer. It was a text book experience of how you want to be represented by an Agent to sell your property:):) The last important fact you need to know... I unsuccessfully had attempted to sell this same property on MLS both privately (and with another very well known local Agent) for the prior five months. Bill demonstrated in one week that he knows his business and delivers... Trust that Bill will deliver if you need to sell your property... his actions differentiate him from the competition! - Trevor Townsend

We found Bill from his previous listing he had successfully sold on our street. I did not know him personally but I had heard great things about him so we decided to contact him. After communicating with him, it was quite evident he knew a lot about Real Estate matters and seemed like the perfect fit to handle a very difficult and stressful sale of our investment property. Bill was the consummate professional dealing with all parties involved in the selling of our investment property including lawyers, agents & our partners. It went so smooth and quick. What was even more impressive & amazing was Bill was able to get us $10.000.00 more than any other agent we interviewed, despite the market being so slow for January 2019. Bill was also very helpful to the Buyer and their agent & he played a big part in putting the deal together. Everyone was happy! Thank-you Bill we recommend you 100% ! - Martha & Robert

My Husband and I would like to thank Bill Papaioannou and Greg Rozakis for their efforts in successfully selling our home. From our first call and meeting with Bill, we knew we were in capable hands. His attention to details, with pictures taken of both the interior and exterior of our house, were factors in attracting buyers. Bill kept in contact with us constantly, keeping us informed as to how everything was going. Within 3 days, we had 3 offers, each of which exceeded the asking price. Therefore, our house sold in little over a week. During this time, Bill and Greg's efforts were also successful in finding us another house. Showing countless print outs of available homes in which to narrow down the ones that we wanted to see. Because of our experience we will not hesitate to recommend Bill and Greg to our Family, Friends and Neighbors. Thank You both again!!! Jim & Lynn - Jim and Lynn

As it is for many families, selling our home was an emotional and stressful time. We are glad that we had Bill to help navigate us through the process of selling our much loved family home. He was informative, attentive and patient as he guided us in preparing the house for sale. Once the house was ready for sale Bill's photographer, kept us at ease and laughing during the lengthy picture taking process. The beautiful photos he, and Bills partner Greg, took no doubt helped to showcase all our hardwork and the overall beauty of the home. Once listed, he not only sold the house quickly, but at a record price for the street. Thanks to Bill we have sold our home and can now go after our life long dream. We would definitely recommend him to anyone selling a home in Hamilton. - dayna samuels

We would like to thank Bill Papaioannou for his hard work and determination to sell our condo in a timely manner. He aggressively staged our condo with a professional staging company and advertised our condo on MLS and in the Hamilton Spectator with a half page advertisement which brought numerous potential buyers to view our condo and resulted in a conditional offer to purchase. That offer became firm 16 days later. He communicated with us with an update after each showing apprising us of the interest of the buyer. We found him to be a competent and experienced real estate agent; particularly selling condominiums at Forest Glen. His persistence, advice and personable approach and attention to detail make him an excellent real estate agent which made us decide to enlist his services to sell our condominium unit. We would strongly recommend that you enlist Bill Papaioannou as your real estate agent. Chet and Debi Kras - Chet Kras

"We have engaged Bill Papaioannou’s professional services for several of our rental properties. Bill was always available and gave us insightful information to maximize our returns on our investment properties. With his top drawer negotiation skills, he was able to achieve an over asking price or close to it on all our properties. Brilliant! When we sell our remaining properties, guess who we are going to call!?" Sincerely Barbara & Roger - Roger Nethercot

We listed with Bill for $459,900 and then Bill got us $560,000. Wow we are over the moon! But that’s not all…. He also proved to be a skilled negotiator on the purchase of our new home, saving us a whopping $56,900.. (even in a hot Sellers market). Sure, go ahead and hire a discount agent for some so called savings, but we are very glad that we chose not to! Best choice we could have ever made. We have followed Bill for years and he has consistently proven himself. The numbers never lie! It pays to have Bill on your side! Marina & Jeff Rollings - Marina & Jeff Rollings

Bill and his assistant Greg did a great job for us. Bill delivered everything that he said he would. Bill was always very accessible and responsive to our questions and issues. They did a fabulous job advertising our home, preparing a top rate listing and brochure for our home and hosting an Open House. Bill and Greg are both a pleasure to deal with. Bill impressed us with his strong ability to work with other Agents on our behalf. We have used high profile Agents in the past and Bill is one that we would recommend and use again - Gord & Sue Speare

It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to write this letter of recommendation for Bill Papaioannou and Greg Rozakis of Remax Escarpment Realty. As a full time investor/business owner I have been buying and selling real estate for the last 28 years. My portfolio includes residential and commercial properties. Over the years I have met, interacted and completed business with a significant number of realtors. As such I have become acutely aware of the different facets involved when buying, selling, and marketing properties. On several occasions I have dealt with realtors who were members of larger teams. I had to deal with more than one representative of the team on a single transaction. I felt as though I did not receive the same level of service as various agents were at different stages of their respective careers. The ideal scenario is to have an individual top performing agent who will deal with you from start to finish, one who has perfected their craft through years of experience. Bill Papaionnou is definitely that type of agent. All of my interactions with Bill and Greg were extremely positive. I found them to be honest, ethical, caring, and compassionate professionals. Bill even made a point of complimenting the efforts of the previous agent who was not able to sell my property. Bill and Greg listened to my concerns and addressed my needs. They presented me with timely market research and analysis and discussed relevant trends in the real estate market. They devised a smart marketing strategy to sell my property quickly for top dollar. They suggested that I make some changes that none of the previous agents I had interviewed recommended. I decided to take their astute advice. The result was astounding. I had an offer only hours after the property hit the MLS. Bill utilized his experience, market knowledge, and superb negotiating skills to establish that the buyer should start their negotiations at full list price. The result was that the property eventually sold over asking price. All of this occurred in less than 24 hours. Needless to say I was ecstatic. When I look back at all of my interactions with Bill and Greg, I cannot overstate just how fantastic and rewarding it was to deal with them. I am immensely satisfied with their skill level and professionalism. Bill and Greg demonstrated so much integrity and knowledge that I have already referred them to two of my business associates prior to my transaction closing. Sincerely, Maurice Collins - Maurice Collins

Bill Papaioannou is the ultimate professional and the best agent one could ever want. Selling your home is very personal and, as is often the case for many people, our home is our most valuable asset. Finding a good and reliable real estate agent can be a daunting experience, so we considered several other agents, some advertising themselves as “teams” and offering various guarantees. Bill’s name had appeared many times over the years on signs in our neighborhood with the “sold” sign always showing up shortly after listing, so we decided to include him in our list of potential candidates. We wanted an agent who was proven, reliable, and would reduce the stress and anxiety of coping with one of the largest and most significant financial transactions we would ever make in a marketing field of which we knew very little and were entering with great trepidation and anxiety. Of the three agents we interviewed, Bill stood out not only as the most experienced (over 28 years), but more importantly, as the most engaged and thorough. He carefully considered every aspect of the house and property, identifying the unique features of a century home, and made us feel that our home was as important to him as it was to us, not just another property to move. He also took the time to review comparable market prices and his research with us, before arriving at a fair market value for our home and ensuring we understood how he arrived at and were comfortable with the price before listing it for sale. Bill dealt personally with us throughout and we were never handed off to a random “team member” – an approach we much prefer. Bill went above and beyond our expectations, making himself available day and night for questions or concerns we might have, to looking after everything that needed doing while we had to be away on a trip. He also provided the services of a stager (who was fabulous), a professional photographer (also amazing), and even went so far as to bring in his own staging items for the night shoot photos. No stone was left unturned in his efforts to transform our already beautiful century home into a real showpiece! Bill's excellent marketing and negotiation talents led to competing offers and the sale of our home for well over the asking price after being on the market for only four days! We absolutely made the right choice asking Bill to sell our home and cannot imagine entrusting anyone else to help and guide us in our foray into the real estate marketplace, whether buying or selling. Not only did Bill achieve an excellent result for us, he conducted himself with the utmost integrity and professionalism and ensured we were kept informed and engaged throughout the process. We would trust him for any future business and happily recommend him to our friends and family. - Lise and Don Fraser

Bill was a God sent from beginning to end. I was stuck with no realtor with a fast approaching closing date on my new home and needed a quick sell on my existing property. A friend of mine highly recommended I call Bill. He was so pleasant and helpful on our first call. He agreed to meet the next day and took all my stress away! He met with me at my condo on a Sunday, gave me an appraisal and had his photographer in 2 hours later to take amazing pictures! I was worried about the deep cleaning I needed to do as I had no time before it listed the next day. He made a call right then and there to a cleaning couple that came in the next day to do a full clean and some minor repairs. My property was listed as promised Monday afternoon. We had viewings that same night as well as many the next day. Tuesday night there were multiple offers and I was blown away! My condo sold in 24 hours of listing over the asking price setting a new record price in my building for a one bedroom unit!! Wow did he ever deliver!!! I can't thank Bill enough for his hard work and unbelievable dedication he gave us. He was in constant communication, was extremely positive and he was exactly what we needed during a very stressful situation. We have built a long lasting friendship with Bill. We can't wait to refer him to our family and friends & work with him again in the future!! We couldn't have done this without you Bill! Thank you from both of us and we can't wait to celebrate! :))) - Lana

I would 100% agree with Tom's comments below. We have had the pleasure of working with Bill for a while now as he helped us to find our first house 5 years ago. We were new to the home buying process at that time and Bill went over and above to keep us informed and make us feel comfortable every step of the way. We even had the selling agent write us a letter once the paperwork was completed telling us that it was thanks to our agent that our offer was accepted over a number of others. We just recently sold that house and purchased a new one with the help of Bill's care and guidance. His dedication, attention to detail and professionalism made the process easy for my family and we received 4 over-asking offers within the first 48 hours. Following that, Bill worked tirelessly to help us secure our second home, again against multiple offers. I would recommend working with Bill to buy or sell a home as you're going to be working with an agent that will go beyond the call of duty to exceed his clients' needs. Its been an absolute joy working with Bill and we hope we have the opportunity to work with him again in the future. - Chris L

I’m the professional photographer that Bill uses on all of his homes. I’ve had the rare privilege to watch Bill in action at every level of a sale (for close to 15 years). His commitment to his client is unswerving. I’ve watched him negotiate successful deals (the best kind that benefit his client) under the most incredible market challenges. He is tireless in making the home selling process a pain free experience - from diligent service and sound market research to tasteful staging and ... of course ... professional photography. All this to say I was shocked to read the negatives reviews on this site. I’ve since spoken with Bill about the accusations and he has assured me that he has never met or worked with either one of these people. I was not surprised to hear that. Each one of their comments paints a picture of a complete stranger. I want to assure anyone considering Bill as their agent that they will discover a consummate professional that will place them as top priority through the entire sale process of their home. - Tom Vogel
