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! Sincerely Jeff.
Your knowledge of the market and real estate acumen was instrumental in finding us a house before it hit the market and entered a bidding war. This really took the stress off! We loved hearing you strategize on how best to approach the sale of our home! We had a dream number in mind and you helped us surpass it with your home improvement plan. What made this even more impressive was the fact the market had dramatically slowed down and there were many other homes listed in our neighbourhood before us that were still on the market. Thanks again Bill!
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.
He came, he saw and he conquered the task at hand! Bill and his team were recommended to me and I quickly saw why. They explained to us exactly what needed to be done to produce stellar results well within our budget. Once listed, my house sold in two and a half days for $40,000 over asking. We were blown away! I was also impressed with their patience and ability to answer all our questions with respect to buying and selling our home. They made us feel comfortable in an otherwise nerve-wracking situation. They took care of us like family and I would highly recommend them.
