Client Experience

I cannot begin to say how grateful we are to have had the good fortune to work with Bill and Betsy. From the start of our process, they carefully worked with us to understand our goals and objectives of our property search. Their regular listing updates were extremely helpful, but what was invaluable was their ability to respond immediately about the relative merits of any listed property against our goals and objectives! This was personalized concierge service at its best. They were patient and helped us to be. Ultimately, we found a property that exceeds our expectations and their negotiation skills during the sale were again outstanding. THank you Bill and Betsy, you two are golden. PL Maillard
Bill and Betsy have been awesome in keeping us in the loop every step of the way. This has been a stressful situation but they were great about answering all my questions and addressing my concerns. I had almost daily communication with one or both of them. In addition they were quick to get back to me if I called or texted. I felt really positive about all our interactions and knew they had my best interests in mind the whole time. S. Buffenbarger

Bill maintained his positive attitude and his professional level of service throughout the process. He was a joy to work with and we would highly recommend him! Erinn & Chris C.
Bill and Betsy front Corcoran Global Living were exceptional. They nailed down exactly what we were looking for in a home. They spent heaps of time getting to know us, providing community tours, and really understanding our family. This was our second time around buying a home and really this time around was so much more enjoyable and meaningful than the first. Bill and Betsy slowed down the whole process and made sure we didn’t make any knee-jerk decisions. When it did come time to make an offer they were diligent, organized and strategic from offer to close. Thank you for everything Bill and Betsy. It’s because of you that we have our home! Jamie L.
