Home Buyer (Berks) Realtor Bill Sands
“My experience working with Bill and Jerry was beyond compare! From touring multiple homes, to putting in a winning offer in a flooded market, they were there for us every step of the way. It was great to have our questions answered quickly and in a way that we could understand (coming from someone with not much experience in the real estate field). When it comes time for our family to purchase our next home, we will absolutely be looking to Sands & Company Real Estate again!”
Home Seller (Berks) Realtor Bill Sands
My husband and I have moved many times over the years and dealt with many realtors both on the buying and selling side. I have to say that Bill is by far the BEST realtor we’ve ever worked with! His professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness, and his ability to close the deal is Outstanding!!! After he helped us with our buying transaction, there was no question that we would use him again for our sale. He is a skilled listener and negotiator. Bill is very well respected in the real estate community, and I think that goes a long way when it comes to negotiations The breath of his local knowledge and its environs along with a thorough real estate expertise was invaluable to us Berks County novices. He took time to introduce us to the market and then showed us many houses, so we had great choices to work with. He has “got your back” in all negotiations and will work tirelessly to get what he believes is the best deal for you. Our experiences have been excellent from start to finish. We highly recommend Bill Sands for any real estate transaction.
