Home Seller Muhlenberg (Berks)
We have used Sands and Company Real Estate for 3 real estate transactions so far. In two transactions we were sellers and in one we were buyers. Jerry has done a wonderful job each time. He has always made sure our interests were represented, was fair, and thorough. If any hurdles came up during the process he was able to deal with them calmly and efficiently and explain everything to us in an easy to understand way. We would definitely recommend to any future buyer or seller.

Sean Devine just helped our family purchase our first home. He answered any questions we may have had and made the buying process a smooth ride. He is caring & willing to help his clients out no matter what time. Sean went above and beyond is an amazing Realtor and would refer him to everyone.
Home Buyer West Reading (Berks)
Working with Bill was amazing; from day one he went to work for us, not for a sale. He listened when we needed him too, and made sure we understood everything we needed to know during the process. His experience showed through in many ways. From his strong and timely communication skills, ability to see things from other perspective, and great personal skills, I would not use any other real estate agent in the future.
Home Buyer Manheim Boro (Lancaster)
It was a pleasure working with Bill, dependable and trustworthy, at Sands & Company Real Estate. Which is why we will be working with him again soon on selling our home!

Home Buyer- Mt Penn (Berks)
I had the pleasure of working with Bill on the purchase of our first home and I can’t say enough good things about him. He is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, detail oriented and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). He answered every single question I had and explained every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. It was a crazy ride, but we were able to buy a beautiful home in our price range and in the neighborhood we wanted. We definitely could not have done this without Bill, he went above and beyond and really took care of us during the entire process. We hope that we’ll be in this home for many years to come, but when it is time to move again, we will definitely call Bill!
I can’t recommend Bill Sands and Sands & Company Real Estate enough.
Home Seller – Greenfields (Berks)
I can’t thank you enough for everything you did to sell my house. You truly go above and beyond. You coached me through the whole process and took all of the stress out of it for me. 3 days! It took you 3 days to find a buyer for my home. You provided me with research to show me what my house should be worth. You coached me on improvements to make before selling. You gave me the referrals I needed to make those improvements. Your advice was perfect and very appreciated. You sold my home almost instantly, gave me zero stress in the process, and helped me find the perfect new house. It is so great to see that customer service is not a thing of the past… at least not with Sands & Company.
I can’t thank you enough!
Home Buyers –Exton Caln Twp (Chester)
It was a pleasure working with you and Sands & Company Real Estate! As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and were very picky when it comes to finding a home. You were great in answering all our questions and guiding us to our first home. Heather and I both appreciated your opinion when looking at houses. Also you are the reason we went with a single family home verses a townhouse. We are very happy for that! Heather and I cannot thank you enough for all the help. We will definitely recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home in the area.
Thank you Jerry,

Working with Sands & Company Real Estate happened by chance, meaning, clicking enter on a computer screen. That’s where the unknown ended. Bill Sands puts you at ease and listens to what you are looking for and delivers. Every step of the way from Bill, Jerry and the entire team, they delivered a relaxing and stress free experience. No pressure. That’s the experience you get with Sands & Company Real Estate. It’s like working with friends you have known your entire life. Best of the best!

Bill Sands is level-headed and works hard to get everyone to the mutual goal of closing. He is both ethical and knowledgable with vast experience. The photographs and web work that is done by Sands and Company cannot be beat. We have now sold three homes with Sands & Company. We would use them again if we were staying in the area.

Jerry and Bill did a great job selling my home and helping with purchasing my new home..
They answered all questions and concerns promptly. They are professional and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Sands and Company.
Home Buyer –Mt Joy (Lancaster)
I was looking to move into one floor home in future Bill put me on automated updated list of homes that come on market. One day I saw one I really wanted to go look at, Bill was able to get me in to look at the property that day. I put a bid in on house next day that was accepted. Bill worked with me very every step of the way was very professional and helped out with any questions. He is very knowledgeable made me very happy to have done business with him and his company.
In the past, my usual realtor experience has been a person who shows me lots of houses that don’t conform to what I say I want. It seems the name of the game is to throw so many places at me that I’ll go for the best I can find, rather than what I want. Jerry figured out that I was dead set on certain features and gave me useful information when I would propose a property that I was interested in. So much better than the tone deaf realtor that seems to want to sell you the house that everybody else wants.
Bill and Jerry were professional and knowledgeable. They made the process easy, providing us with a number of listings in our area… ultimately finding my family a great home in a wonderful neighborhood. In addition, they connected us with a number of resources (title companies, etc.) When we had a question, they were only a text, a call, or an email away… any reasonable time day or night. Given the excellent service they provided my family, my wife and would have no issues recommending Bill or Jerry to those interested in either purchasing or selling a home.

From listing our house to closing on our new home, Jerry Pelker and Bill Sands were with us every step of the way. Their honesty was refreshing and they guided us through the entire process. Through Jerry’s recommendations for preparing our house for sale, we were able to get full asking price in 8 days. The team also helped us find our dream home and walked us through the closing process. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home.
Thank you Harry & Natasha Lecuyer
My wife and I worked with Bill over the summer of 2016. We needed to find a new home quickly and had a very tight schedule. Bill ensured we were very efficient with our time — seeing a large number of homes in a short span of time. Bill’s professionalism and knowledge of the area made us very confident, and we were able to bid on (and successfully purchase!) our new home inside of a couple of weeks. We would definitely work with Bill (and Jerry) again in the future.
Matt & Chrissy
We worked with Bill Sands and his team for a full year to find the home that was right for us. Our vision for our ideal home was not an easy one to realize but Bill’s market knowledge and patience succeeded in helping us find just the right place. Bill stuck with us throughout the entire house hunting and purchasing process, always providing valuable insight and expertise. He answered all our questions including the many we didn’t think to ask. Bill is trustworthy and honest and proved to be a tremendous partner in our home search. He shares our appreciation of classic homes and architecture, is invested in the community and his love for what he does shows.
Wayne & Kelly
Our time with Bill Sands and Jerry Pelker, of Sands & Company Real Estate has been the most pleasurable, memorable experience ever selling a home. These trenchant professionals are the best in the business. Their network and abilities to cast the widest net possible is second to none with solid, fast results. Within minutes of posting, our home was seen, scheduled for showing with several people from coast to coast all offering bids and selling within 3 days. This is a team every seller and buyer should go to first. No other real estate company can compare to the speed, tenacity and professionalism of Sands & Company. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you’ve allowed our dream to become reality is such a short time.
Todd and Cornelia Parkhurst
Bill and Jerry work in tandem to make the buying experience seamless. From the moment I contact them to the moment we settled, they were consummate professionals – always quick to respond, respectful of our wishes and desires, and by our side for the important parts of the buying process.

Bill & Jerry are the most professional and knowledgeable realtors that we have worked with to sell our commercial building within two weeks after they listed it for sale. Thank you so much for the hard work.

Bill Sands is a consummate professional. Bill is very thorough and patient and provided excellent service. Bill provided solid advice and helped guide, me as a buyer, through a difficult process. I would recommend Bill to anyone.

My mother and I were extremely pleased with our experience we had in dealing with Sands & Company Real Estate. Bill was so patient with & pleasant to my 85 year old mother. Everyone was so knowledgeable and helpful. There were some very special needs involved with preparing the property for sale and they helped us find all the necessary expertise needed. All the contractors were honest, reasonable with their pricing and reliable. Settlement was a breeze thanks to the professionalism of Bill & the buyer’s realtor. Many thanks to all at Sand’s Real Estate!
Sincerely, Sharon S
Home Seller (Estate)
Bill and Jerry were great to work with! They were recommended by my brother when they found a home for him personally. My father’s estate home was only on the market for 4 days before they found us a buyer and at the price we were looking for. I’ll certainly be recommending them to friends and family.
I must say my service for selling my house in November 2015 was absolutely exceptional. Bill, you went above and beyond with working with the buyer and her Agent. Jerry, you did a wonderful job with the pictures and all the paperwork. I would definitely refer Bill & Jerry to friends and clients. Praises all around for the job you did selling my house.
Best, Patty Wright
Home Seller- Relocation
Bill Sands and Jerry Pelker did a terrific job assisting me with the sale of my house. Their marketing strategies are very effective, and they were able to secure a buyer in less than three weeks from the time my home went on the market. The buyer was impressed and excited about the house, so I feel grateful to the team for connecting me with this buyer. I am appreciative for Bill and Jerry’s representation throughout the whole process.
All the Best, Keri Morton
I had a very positive experience with Sands & Company.
My agent, Jerry Pelker, gave me a good list of homes in the area that fit my criteria at the beginning of the process. When we started looking at houses, he provided input about the condition and possible resale value. Any time I had a question about something or needed a document, he was just a quick phone call away with what I needed. I would recommend Sands & Company to any of my friends and family based on my experience.
Experts in what I was after…historically significant property. They have the “connections” for all things related to the purchase process as well as the after-purchase needs (contractors, plumbers, insurance broker, etc.). Very pleasant dealing with the team at Sands & Company. My PA Real Estate Team!
Home Seller & Buyer
Sold a Home in Blandon, Bought a Home in Elverson PA 2015- Jerry and Bill were experts when it came to the valuation of our home, and took their time to make sure we felt comfortable with the process. They were not part of some mega realtor machine, and their attention to detail was excellent. We were very unsure during the process, and Jerry was outstanding with being patient and knowledgeable. We found a perfect home at the best price and location, so it was very comforting to know we did not have to compromise anything on our wish list. Our family and friends have told us how jealous they are that we had such an awesome experience! We moved into the home then put the old one on the market and accepted a very competitive offer within 36 hours of the listing!! Jerry and Bill are smart, sassy and know how to get the job done at the speed that is best for the client.
Thank you Both! Pat & Sue
Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Mountville, PA- They help me from start to finish in my search for a new home. I came upon numerous issues with my title company and they were there at every turn to help me through the entire process.
Home Buyer & Seller
Sold a home Denver PA, Bought a Home in Providence Township PA 2015 – She is very happy there in her new home, feels secure, is meeting new people and getting settled in. She has mentioned several times how smooth everything went on Friday with the 2 settlements. Bill’s Dad was so concerned about Ann’s troubles with selling, I remember that day he told Ann that he was going to contact his son to help her sell the house. He was so proud of you all, very confident you could help her when all the others over the years were not able. You and Bill have been so helpful to her, and patiently worked things out through these last few months. She thanks you for a great job!~ and I do too! Very happy with Sands & Co. and I highly recommend Bill Sands and Associates to help you buy and sell your home.
Thank you, Charlene for Owner (Ann DeMato)
Jerry and Bill were absolutely a pleasure to work with. They both worked incredibly hard to find the right home and the right situation for us. The negotiation of the sale allowed us to take possession of the house with immediate equity. Wonderful experience and would highly recommend!
Jerry Pelker served as my buyer’s agent and did a great job in helping me land a beautiful house that fit my budget, tastes, and connected me with great financing. Jerry is personable and exemplified the value of long-term relationship building as he worked with me for over a year to land the right house at the right time. Jerry was a patient, detail-oriented professional who taught me a ton about real estate and the buying process in general. He was a pleasure to work with throughout our time together. The overall support from Sands & Company, including Bill Sands, the broker, particularly his experience and influence of the local region and housing regulations also added substantial value to the package of having Sands & Co. represent me in buying my first home. Would do business with them again!
Thank you, Tyler Parmer
There are realtors and then, there are realtors. Bill Sands falls into the category of, “Then, there are realtors!” After having my home on the market for six months with seemingly no serious interest and offers, I called on Bill Sands, given I saw his success in selling properties throughout the region, but more importantly in the subdivision in which I lived. I shared with him my prior experience of selling homes I owned in less than three months . . . so he knew I was anxious to sell. He placed my home under contract on September 1, 2014 and on September 21, 2014, there was not only interest from several individuals, but a serious offer was made as well! My home was essentially sold!
While this is what is expected of a realtor, that is, sell your home, Bill did so much more than that. He suggested I make some enhancements that were not costly, he made himself available to show the home (which freed me up to travel, as needed), he held open houses to increase the foot traffic for potential buyers, and most importantly for me, he answered all my questions and concerns in concrete easy to understand language.
Throughout the entire process–less than a month–Bill Sands took a personal interest in the selling of my home as though it was more than just a realtor’s job. I value the acumen he has for his profession and the personalization he brings to the process of selling a home. I can certainly recommend him above all realtors after purchasing seven homes in three different states! Bill brings his own style and savvy to selling a home–he comes highly recommended. You will not be disappointed in his going beyond the call of duty to sell your home!!

Sands & Company was amazing, Jerry was my realtor and he was simply amazing he couldn’t have made the experience any better. We had never bought a home before we didn’t know what we were doing. Jerry helped and explained everything along the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Sands & Company helped us navigate through a very long and arduous process of purchasing a home. They came to us with an incredible opportunity to purchase a home. I had given them a list of what we were interested in, and shortly thereafter, they had the perfect home for us. The list we gave them was nearly impossible to meet, and yet, they did. When we saw the home for the first time, we instantly fell in love with it, but there were some hoops to jump through before everything could happen. Sands & Company was by our side every step of the way. They taught us everything about the challenges we faced, gave us examples of how to renovate the home, showed us comparable properties, showed us the true value of the home before and after renovations and mentored us through the entire process. The process, beyond all of our control, took over 8 months, and they held our hand through everything. There were periods of concern that were immediately handled by Sands & Company. There were a million questions and they answered them all. We had no idea what we were doing, but we were completely confident and had total peace of mind through everything, because we knew Sands & Company was by our side. All the way up through the final signature, they helped us every step with guidance and assurance. We knew exactly what we needed to do on the day of settlement. In spite of all of the paperwork and procedures over the course of 8 months and during the settlement, everything was easy – they handled it. We would never have this house without Sands & Company. I can’t imagine how awful it would have been to attempt this without them. In my line of business, I have extremely frequent interaction with Realtors. No one is anywhere near the same league as Sands & Company. They understand that it is more than just a purchase. They bring very specific and unique skills to the table, unrivaled by anyone else I’ve had experience with. From their ability to stage and photograph your home with breathtaking results, to their design expertise for your new home, it’s a completely different experience to work with people of their caliber.

Bill was the listing agent on a property we purchased. He is a consummate professional. He was incredibly well versed on the property though he did not have it listed for long. His presentation package was top notch and had excellent photos and floor plans of the property prepared. He went the extra mile to assist us with the transaction and we would happily work with him again. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property and we would definitely use him again if the opportunity arose.
Thank you, Randy & John
Sands & Company operates as a well trained team of professionals. Process was smooth & seamless with great communication every step of the way. Would definitely recommend them to anyone!
Best Regards, Shustack
The team at Sands & Company was very professional and knowledgeable. We initially set the price of our home higher than they recommended. The home sat on the market with not much activity for several months. Once we adjusted the price to Bill and Jerry’s original suggested price, we began to receive more requests for showings. Moral of the story: trust their knowledge of the industry and follow their instructions and you will sell your property!
Juliana & Jorge Castillo
Good guys seems like they actually care about you… If and when I buy another home I’m going through them. Anytime I had questions or needed help they responded almost immediately. Their extensive knowledge of the business, as well as their willingness to work with you was the best price possible.
Thank you, Mike Melendez
We were referred by a friend to Bill Sands, Sands & Company, to assist us in buying our first home. Through our home buying process, we looked at ALOT of homes, and we were never pressured or rushed to make a purchase. Not only did Sands & Company help find us the perfect home, but they also provided us with an education in home-buying and real estate. We will be recommending them to all of our family and friends!
All the Best!, Tom & Erin Sardina
The best thing about Sands & Company was that they helped me to stay on top of the process and all the things that needed to be taken care of as the seller. Any time I would start to procrastinate there was a phone call checking on items that needed to be taken care of, I appreciated that help!
Thank You, Angelia Ermond
Jerry and Sands & Company were great to work with! Jerry was very friendly, honest, and helpful. Not to mention his professional and organized manner. I did not have to think too much about anything since he was there to guide me and help plan for the next step! As a first time home buyer with little knowledge in the market, he reassured me every step of the way what to expect, what to be prepared for, and eased any of my doubts as well as answered every question, no matter how little. He also brought me a prop for my own photo at settlement! I could not have been more comfortable, happy, and well satisfied with all of his service to me!!!!! Thanks Jerry!!! 🙂
Sands & Company was very friendly with helpful suggestion through my entire home purchase. They made the process smooth for the first time home buyers. They give quick responses with all my questions and we’re more than willing to work with my unusual schedule.
Thank you, Brittany Braid
I cannot say enough about how great our experience was with Bill Sands & his staff. I have bought several homes in the last 20 some odd years and never had the transaction go so smooth. I saw a property that he had listed on Zillow, and he was representing the seller’s interest. So with that said, Bill helped us purchase the home of our dreams without any problems!!! I can tell you that Bill & his company have a customer for life. We feel like he is a friend, not just another realtor. If you’re reading this Bill, thank you for everything & hope to see you at our house warming party.
I would highly recommend Sands & Company, once I worked with Bill and established a relationship; he was able to best select homes for me to see that met my needs. I also liked that he was willing to select a few homes outside of my ideas that he thought would fit my needs as well.
We were recommended by a mutual friend to work with Bill Sands. As recommended, Bill was very responsive and helpful in our home-search. He took time to understand our needs. He took personal interest in letting us know houses that we will like.
He showed us many houses and gave us ample amount of time in making my decision. He is also helping us after the deal is closed. I would recommend Bill Sands to anyone who is planning to buy home in Berks County.
What can you say when you’ve had a great experience working with this company? They were knowledgeable, creative, and fun to work with, understanding of family needs regarding illness and the willingness to work with family members in unusual circumstances. Their counsel and advice was always realistic and helpful; their interaction with us was always thoughtful.
We felt secure working with them. We felt that we mattered. We felt respected. We were happy to be in their care.. Best of all, of course, the house we loved sold and we felt throughout the process that it, too, had enjoyed great respect and professional skill.
This company is very good. They know the area very well, they are very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the buying process. I felt very comfortable dealing with them and had no problems at all. They even helped me find another lender when my original lender denied my loan.
Josias & Marie Sorel
Bill Sands and his team are highly impressive. Very detailed, organized and strategic in the way they market a home from their multi-media campaign to staging your home just the right way for photography. We highly recommend Sands & Company.
Kevin & Faith Fretz
Sands & Company made our experience a good one. Their knowledge was superior, their personal touch and attention was bar none and our house sold in 17 days from listing. We would definitely use Sands & Company again.
We used Sands & Company to buy our house; they did an excellent job from beginning to end. We received daily emails with houses for sale in area we wanted to be and also had customized lists of homes that had different options we wanted i.e. fireplace, # of bed and bathrooms. They always showed up on time for the open houses and did excellent job of explaining things that were good, or things that needed attention. Very good eye for detail. I would use them again or suggest them to anyone needing to find a home. We thank you for all your help getting our new home.
Thank you, Amy & Travis Dailey
I am pleased to have work with Sands and Company during the selling of my home. They were very professional and knowledgeable about the entire process and made the whole experience go very smoothly during a time when the housing market was at a low.
When deciding to sell our home we knew right away we wanted to go with Sands and Company because of their reputation and reliability. With Bill and Jerry’s expertise, they sold our home in 6 weeks. They made the whole process easy and stress free.
Sincerely, Joe and Siena Smith
Home Seller & Buyer
On day while driving through a development in Kutztown with my wife one day we say that our dream house was for sale. We have talked about buying that house for the last 10 to 15 years and realized this was our chance. That night we called the listing agent Bill Sands from Sands & Company. From the first time I talked to him I knew that if anyone could make this happen, it would be him, and he did not disappoint. When we went to the listed house to view it, I could not believe all of the information he had prepared for us. He handed us a brochure (full color) of the house, a buyer’s disclosure form, and a list of utilities along with monthly costs. Bill is a very motivated person, and we could tell that from our first meeting. After about a day or two, we gave Bill a call to set-up a time to meet to get things rolling. Scheduling was simple, what worked best for us is when he wanted to meet. My wife and I had some concerns about trying to sell a home in a development where all of the homes are more less the same and several homes to choose from that have been on the market for awhile. Bill came into our home, preformed a walk through and talked to us about what we could realistically sell the house for. We felt his advice and price point were right on and decided to sign a contract with him. The next day Bill came to the house with Jerry. Jerry took photos of the house with a hi-def camera and emailed them to use that night. I couldn’t believe how good those photos looked. He also made the brochure and set everything up on various websites. Sands & Company is a unique real estate agency, in that they believe in having open houses. A lot of things I’ve read about open houses are that it is a waste of time. I’m here to tell you that is absolutely not true. Bill is not content with sticking a for sale sign in the front of your yard and hope someone sees it. He and his company are very proactive in getting your house sold, while keeping the home owners best in-tensions first. In today’s housing market, it is not uncommon to see houses for sale for months even longer; Bill had a contract nailed down in 31 days!! I would highly recommend Bill Sands and Sands & Company to everyone. He helped make my families dream home a reality. Through this process we feel like we have gained a friend in Bill. Please don’t just take my word for it, view Sands & Company website and view other people opinions, and you will see some common things FRIENDLY, KNOWLEDGEABLE, MOTIVATED, and CARING.
Sincerely, Dan & Jaimee Stemko
My experience working with Bill Sands and Sands and Company was phenomenal. He catered to my inexperience when looking for a home and he was always available when I had questions. We found the perfect house for what I was looking for and I can’t wait to make some memories. Thanks to Bill and his team for making my home purchase a great experience.
My wife joins me in our highest recommendation of Bill Sands, our real estate broker, and Sands & Company in the Reading, PA and Berks County, PA areas. At the beginning of September 2012, my wife and I knew we were about to relocate to Berks County, PA, to begin a new job. We were moving from Rochester, NY, and had a window of 5 days to come to the Reading, PA area and locate housing. Someone in my new place of work told me about a very experienced and proven realtor, Bill Sands. So I contacted him and he cleared most of every day for that week to be able to help us find a home. Bill worked as our exclusive agent and I have never felt as cared for or as better represented by an agent as I did with Bill. He listened carefully to my wife and me regarding what we wanted in a house and property. Even as we adjusted our own preferences several times during our search together, Bill was responsive and always prepared the next morning with 10 or 15 more good properties to visit. He was the most professional, careful, genuine, and knowledgeable realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. The house which he finally introduced us to, which became our first choice, met all of our requirements, while adding some things which we had not dreamed about. Bill helped us make an offer, which was accepted, and also introduced to a most professional mortgage broker who treated us with kindness and respect. Because of the fairness and good will that Bill Sands exhibits, our closing was the punctuation on all his good work on our behalf. We wholeheartedly recommend Sands & Company for your real estate needs if you are looking for a well-connected broker in Berks County and southeastern PA who will be your agent and advocate from beginning to end.
Home Buyer/ Seller
Recently, Bill Sands was involved with three transactions for us. Our goal was to sell two homes and downsize to a new one. His outstanding knowledge and skills allowed us to achieve our goals exactly as we planned. He communicated with Barbara Corcoran, nationally known realtor, where she actually showed our home on the Today Show. How’s that for advertising! Bill advised me to make some minor updates to my farmette. I did exactly what he told me to do and priced the property where he thought it might sell quickly and at a fair market price. The farmette sold in two weeks!. His information was “right on”. I would highly recommend Sands & Company Real Estate, Bill Sands, and his outstanding staff. He is honest, reliable, and extremely knowledgeable. He will identify your needs and make it happen.

Vacation Home Buyer/ Investor
Working with Sands & Company Real Estate was the smartest decision I ever made. I was working on purchasing the condo I had been dreaming of my whole life. Bill & Jerry took the time to go look at several properties with me. They gave me excellent advice and helped me through the entire process. Bill found an excellent local Realtor for me who was amazing to work with. Bill & Jerry were with me every step of the way. I was able to keep my focus on my work while they handled all of the details for me. It was such a simple, smooth, stress free process – and I ended up with exactly what I always wanted. I can’t thank them enough! In my line of work, I’m exposed to Realtors all the time – there truly is no comparison to Sands & Company Real Estate.
Thank you Ryan Ott
Bill Sands showed me many houses that met my personal criteria. He was a great asset in my home buying experience from the buyer’s agreement, the home inspection, and also in getting the seller to repair several defects. He also assisted with paper work for the mortgage company. He got the seller to pay 6% of the closing cost. I would highly recommend him and his staff at Sands & Company Real Estate.
Thank You Ron Pennypacker
Bill, this has been a great experience for us. You have been very patient and helped us through the entire process of home buying. We have been very pleased with everything from phone calls to looking at homes. Sharing ideas and thoughts on what might be best and makes the most since. I would recommend your service to anyone; it has truly been a wonderful time working with you and your firm.
Thanks, Tony Jarrett
Home Seller/ Buyer
Bill Sands provided the personal touch that you don’t see with many realtors. He personally hosted my open houses, the inspection of both the home that I purchased and the home that I sold, and attended settlement for both properties. Bill was never to busy to answer my phone calls and to calm any anxieties that might have arisen in the buying and selling process.
Thank you, Jane Hagness, Hampden Heights
Bill words cannot express how thankful I’m that you walked me through the process of finding a new office location for my business. I’m thankful for the way you helped me stay on top of things and finding the right location.
Thank You Bill and Sands & Company

I moved into the Reading area due to a new career opportunity and didn’t know much about the real estate here. Bill was very informative and highly educated on the different neighborhoods. He went well beyond what is expected of a realtor and he never pressured me in any way. I closed on the property that best suits my needs at the present time. Thank You Sands & Company

Dear Future Clients: I met Bill at a Team for Kids fundraising event for the New York Marathon last year. I was so impressed with his Charming personality and impressive Bio. It’s not every day you get the opportunity to work with a real estate star! When we listed our home, which was a unique home, he brought in his design team in who helped us stage the rooms for the best marketing prospective. This is a free service I might add he prepared floor plans of our home and had professional quality photography of own home to capture the natural light. He kept me personally advised through emails/text and personal phone calls which is true customer service! He even Skype with us while we were traveling in Europe. He determined who our buyer would be early on and tailored his marketing to reach that audience. Once a buyer came to the table to negotiate on a purchase price Bill’s professionalism and experience peaked. He kept the parties focused and achieved an unbelievable price for our home! He was our advocate, friend through the entire transaction and was there for us at closing. We did interview a large Franchise firm at the advice of our colleague, but quickly determined that they did not offer us anywhere near the level of talent that Bill and his team brought to the table without all the Broker service add on fees the franchise firm wanted to charge us. I would strongly suggest that you read Bill’s Bio, and interview before you make a decision to sell

“It was a pleasure working with everyone at your company”
Sands & Company Real Estate was nothing short of excellent. Our agent Stephanie’s personal manner, professionalism, punctuality and reliability made her an absolute pleasure to deal with, and we have only praise for her work ethic in every respect. She explained the process step by step and gave us her valued opinion to help guide us in our decisions. Sands & Company Real Estate looks out for their clients and does not charge extra fees as other companies may do. The company works as a team and is very personable. If our agent was not available, just a phone call to the office or an email to Jerry got us a fast response. I recommend them to anyone looking to buy a house or selling a house.
Thanks for everything, Tina

Dear Bill, My wife and I are delighted to send you this e-mail to acknowledge the high quality service you provided to us, and to serve as a token of our appreciation. Without your unwavering commitment to assisting us to achieve this dream of ours which a few months ago was just a foggy dream, we will not be today home owners.
We deeply appreciated your guidance, your educated counseling, and above all, we appreciated your professionalism in respecting our choices and preferences.
Throughout this process in selecting a house, and a mortgage company, you have been not only a Realtor, but a friend.
Thank you Bill Felix & Aude.
Relocation Retiree Home Seller
Bill & Staff, We would like to “Thank you” for the outstanding effort you put forth in selling our home and our parents home as well. While the home market is saturated and buyers are slim, you and your staff did an outstanding job in supporting us. Despite the above difficulties, your assurances kept our hopes high. Your marketing insight, perseverance, open house promotions and the photo’s seemed to also be of great value as they were terrific, koodos to your Administrative Assistant/Photographer. All were a God send and without doubt led to the successful sale of our home quickly and at our hoped for price. We wish you continued success which you’ve proven to us. Your persistence and professionalism has shown that we made the best realtor selection possible.
Best Wishes, Len & Donna Butzer, Myrtle Beach, SC
I’m writing to express my thanks and admiration for the work you did in representing us and selling our home. Pat and I could not be more please.Your marketing strategy was impressive from the beginning. Your approach was not a “one size fit all”, which is typical with most real estate agents. You based your strategy on your keen understanding of the market place and identified the profile of the kind of prospect most likely interested in purchasing our property. The use of your professional photographs and floor plans, along with outstanding marketing elements allowed you to bring the perfect buyer to the settlement table. Even in this difficult market place you had our home sold in matter of weeks.
It was a pleasure working with you and your staff. Please use this as a testimonial as you see fit, you earned it.
Thank You Ron Roth Wyndham Hill Drive
COMMERCIAL BUILDING SALE
Thank You Sands & Company
We wanted to be sure to thank you for the wonderful expertise you delivered as we moved though the process of selling our commercial property. Your advice on preparing the building for sale, pricing and the property correctly, along with using marketing techniques that ultimately worked to get us to the settlement table. We are looking forward to working with you as we search for our new location.
Best regards, Jean Seelig and Diane Vottero
Potential Clients, I want to thank Bill and his staff for selling my parents home in less than a week on the market in this poor economy. He worked tirelessly meeting my sister and my busy schedules. Bill was able to answer my unending questions. He even worked holidays and during his vacation. He went above and beyond my high expectations in numerous situations. I don’t know if I can properly express his mixture of professionalism and friendliness, but he can provide both extremely well. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. I will definitely keep his number if I ever decide to sell my home. Thanks again for everything!
FIRST TIME BUYERS
Hello Everyone, Jordon and I came to Bill looking for our first house. Not only did he make it an easy process, but it was obvious he knew what we were looking for and was willing to go the extra mile to make sure we got into the perfect first house. We really didn’t know what to expect and were nervous in the beginning, but Bill put us at ease and made it a fun and painless adventure. We got everything we wanted and more thanks to Bill and the Sands & Co. Team. We are so thrilled and will certainly come to him in the future and recommend Sands & Co to anyone looking for a house.
RETIREE RELOCATION HOME SELLERS
We would like to tell you how happy we are in Texas. We found a house that meets all of our needs. It is situated on a golf course which makes Dick very happy. Each morning we watch the golfers pass by as we have breakfast and relax over a second cup of tea. When the weather cools Carolyn will enjoy our porches and patio, and Gretchen has a wonderful space just perfect for a “writer’s retreat”. Most importantly we spend two/three days a week interacting with our daughter, Heidi and our three grandsons. Life is good!
Of course, none of this would be possible if you hadn’t worked your magic and sold our house in Pennsylvania. We can’t thank you enough for your care, vision and professionalism. Through your experience and expertise you produced a contract in only three days after listing the property. Certainly your work did not begin or end with that. You compiled a team of outstanding support staff to help us lead up to that listing date and guided us throughout the process until settlement.
Bill it has been our pleasure and good fortune to know and work with you. You are not only a realtor but a “Life Enhancer.”
Sincerely,Dick & Carolyn Oklas
RELOCATION HOME SELLER
To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to express my complete and total satisfaction with Bill Sands as a realtor and Broker of Sands & Company. Recently Bill assisted us in selling our house in Reading, PA. In the current economy, it was nearly impossible to sell this very expensive house. Throughout the entire process Bill was professional, conscientious, and motivated. He guided us through this tough process, arranged all the showings and open houses, and kept us informed in the changes of the housing market. He worked tirelessly countless hours to help us sell this house. I always felt as though I was his only client. He was a great friend throughout this entire ordeal. The amount of effort Bill put in this process far exceeded the commissions he received. My wife and I owe Bill a great amount of gratitude. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have Bill on our side.
Very grateful Marat Goldenberg, MD

Since my first encounter with real estate in 1989 this was undoubtedly the easiest and most pleasant sales transaction I have ever done! Bill you and your staff went out of your way to assist in the sale while I resided out of State. Bill always kept me informed and I truly believe that he took care of me. Even though there were some rough spots with the Buyers your sales psychology proved to be beneficial and successful in the sale of my Earle Gables home. I will never forget what you did how you did it and the expeditious manner by which you wrapped things up for me, If you ever need a referral please contact me.
