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.
