What my Clients Have to say…

“Bill Robbins is a great realtor to work with.  I would highly recommend him and would work with him again in the future when selling or buying a house!” - Jennifer, 2013 Upper Arlington Seller & Buyer

 

“ Bill was recommended to us by one of our friends after we had a bad experience with another realtor while searching for our first home in German Village. We knew he was the right choice when he got us into a house that wasn’t even on the market yet the first time we met. When we found our house, we were able to put the offer in from a park just a few blocks away. We are very happy with our house and would definitely work with Bill again in the future. ” - Sarah & Jim, 2013 German Village Buyers

 

“ Thank you so much for all of your help in the sale of our home. You were very thorough and professional. You did a lot more then we ever expected as our Realtor, from last minute showings to follow-ups with potential buyers. We really appreciated how you were on top of everything and how much you kept us informed along the way, especially since we were already living out of state. David and I felt like we were your only clients even though I know we weren’t. We can’t thank you enough!! Any potential buyer or seller would be so impressed by your knowledge and efficiency when they choose you as their realtor. ” - Alyson & David,  2013 Grove City Sellers

 

Amy & Kate's Wonderful Clintonville Home

“My wife and I had such a challenging time finding a house in the competitive market of Clintonville. We had a series of missed opportunities so we decided to find another realtor. Within an hour of meeting Bill, we looked at our first house, and within four days we were making an offer on another house from the seller’s kitchen. He was professional, prompt, knowledgable, and extremely hard working. He would answer any questions we had within seconds of asking them. We are extremely happy in our new home, and we always say that we wouldn’t be in it if it weren’t for Bill. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying and selling a home.” – Amy F, 2013 Clintonville Buyer

Irene & Alex's Dublin Home

 ”Dear Bill, Thank you with our whole heart for your great support and service in the past year. You’ve brought so much joy in our life in Columbus. Hope to keep in touch with you, and hope your career will continue to thrive.”- Blessings, Irene & Alex, Dublin Buyers 2013

Kathleen & Jason's Merion Village Home

“We tried to sell our home in the past and were unsuccessful. We had other realtors that seemed to just put a sign in our front yard then waited to see what happened. This was not the case with Bill. During our first meeting, I could tell immediately that Bill would sell our home. He was so impressive, professional, and such a go-getter; I knew he would be a great realtor for us. Bill went above and beyond to market our home to sell. The house looked so great that we were overjoyed to find it sold in one day! We were so thrilled and blessed to have Bill help us!
Bill also helped us purchase our new home as well. The selling, buying, and closing process can make your head spin, but Bill made it easy for us. He always knew what to do or how to guide us in making some of the biggest decisions of our lives. We would strongly recommend Bill to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! Thanks so much Bill!” -Kathleen & Jason, Merion Village Sellers 2013

Yavonda & Mark's Blacklick Home

 ”Bill was an excellent resource to leverage when my husband and I were in the process of buying a new home upon our moving to the Columbus area in April 2013 . He was personable, patient, accommodating, credible, insightful, and knowledgeable. In fact, he effectively explained the entire process from start to finish, kept the lines of communication open, introduced us to a new application to make the paperwork process more efficient, and paid attention to our specific expectations so as to match us with the house that best fit our needs. We are so thankful to him that we can enjoy our new house — a house we are so proud to call home.” - YaVonda & Mark, Relocation Buyer 2013

Heather & Bryan's Ashville Home

“Bill was easily the best real estate agent we have worked with in our recent moves across the east coast. He consulted with us to get an idea of what we were looking for and showed us the best of the best houses to meet our needs. He was quick, reliable, and always on top of things. He was very knowledgeable about the market and made the process extremely easy. Bill always had great suggestions for improvements to make the house more valuable, and we valued his opinions. He never made us feel pressured or rushed; but, due to his efficiency, we were making an offer (at Starbucks) after a day and a half of house-hunting. Bill’s technology expertise allowed us to negotiate and sign counter-offers on our drive back to our home in Virginia. And his job didn’t stop there. He was always available (even after closing) and in constant communication. He took care of each problem that arose with ease, which really lessened the stress of our out of state move. We absolutely love our house and can’t thanks Bill enough for everything he did to help us get it. Above all, we had a blast working with Bill! We would, without hesitation, recommend him to anyone needing a real estate agent!” -Heather & Bryan, Relocation Buyers 2013

 

Brittany & Russ's Nicely Updated Home

“Bill is informative, reliable, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with when it comes to buying a house and making improvements. He provides you with estimates and ideas for improvents in no time. Bill goes the extra mile as a realtor through the use of technology, finding exactly what type of house works for you, providing you with points of contacts to make improvements, and importantly stays in touch throughout the entire process. Overall, Bill makes shopping for a house enjoyable! When trying to sell your house, Bill is just as enjoyable to work with. He puts time into advertising your house through the use of a great photographer, open houses, and marketing. I have never encoutered a realtor as good as Bill and would highly recommend him and his services for either buying or selling your house.” – Brittany F, Grove City Seller, 2013

 

Lynette & Rob's Charming 1912 2.5 story brick

 ” Will~ Thank you so much for going above & beyond to sell our house. You did a lot of extra’s for us to save us time and we really appreciate it. we appreciate how fast you were in getting back to us after showings and being “on call” to us! You were a great realtor for us & we will recommend you to everyone we know who is buying & selling. Here’s a token of our appreciation to help you celebrate the sale and have a nice evening on us : ) IT has been great working with you! Thank you so very much” -Rob & Lynette, Schumacher Place Sellers, 2013

 

Lauren & Eli's Beautiful Bexley Home

“Bill goes above and beyond what was required. This seems an easy thing, but it is not. This is especially true when you have two first time home sellers who are eager, nervous, and excited to buy their first home together and sell the bachelor pad. Bill promptly responds to emails, text messages and phone calls. In short, he is available and he makes you a priority. Additionally, he is honest. Bill will provide you with his opinions, when asked (we begged for them!), on both how to ready your home for selling and suggestions related to the purchase of a new home. He is experienced and he is knowledgable about real estate and about home renovations. Additionally, what Bill does not know, he tends to know someone who knows – for example, Bill suggested we fix an overhead light that had unsightly visible cords and do a little ceiling work in our home prior to selling, he also suggested the handy man and electrician to cheaply and correctly perform the work. These suggestions made an impact in our sale and served to assist us in getting the work done. Bill even met workers at our home when we were unable to do so to ensure the work was completed before a showing! Bill eases home buyer/seller tensions with honest feedback and his hard work. I would and I do recommend Bill Robbins as a realtor – in short, Bill is the consumate professional and a genuinely nice guy.” - Lauren & Eli,  Merion Village Sellers/ Bexley Buyers, 2012

 

Nicole & Ryan's Elegant Upper Arlington Home

“Bill, Thank you so much for all that you did to help us find the perfect house!  We are so happy with the one we ended up with, thank you so much for all of your hard work!  You were so amazing to work with and we will be singing your praises to everyone we know! … You are so on top of things, I can’t imagine any Realtor being better at their job!  Thanks again for everything.  Keep in touch. -Nicole & Ryan P.S. You had better be the first to come and see our new kitchen!” – Nicole & Ryan, Upper Arlington Buyers, 2012

 

Vicki & Erich's Beautiful Marble Cliff Townhome

“Moving in from out of State puts particular pressure on buying a home. You have limited time to pick a place, you are not available to be there during a build out to keep an eye on the contractor and communication through the process is critical given the distance involved. There are so many homes on the market you really need a pro to help filter the selection to what you are really looking for and Bill was fantastic. He listened well to our wants and needs, watched us as we reacted to our first showings and adjusted what we saw appropriately, not wasting our time. Once the selection was made he was available by phone every time we called, no voice mail or secretaries. He has an extraordinary eye for décor and helped us pick finishes. He spent time every week during the build out of our unit, sending us pictures and monitoring the contractor’s progress. I felt very comfortable not being there knowing what he was doing. I have moved 9 times in the last 25 years and Bill is the best realtor I have ever had.” –Erich W., Marble Cliff buyer, April, 2011

 

Karen & Ted's Pristine Historic Home

“Bill Robbins is not your standard real estate resource – he is extraordinary. I didn’t find him through a recommendation either, because I am new to Columbus. But my first contact with Bill (about a listing of his on the internet) developed quickly into a solid partnership, based on all the things you look for but don’t always find. He quickly grasped what we were looking for (without much explaining on our part), watched our pocketbook (didn’t want us to buy a lovely, but over-improved home), was responsive and worked around our schedule – not his, saw us through the buying process including finding and scheduling workmen for improvements before we moved in, and was always light and easy to be around. Bill’s knowledge of the market is deep, he is highly networked, and he works really hard. And then Bill did what really counts – he found the right home for us, one that wasn’t even on the market at the time. A caution: Bill has a big voice (and I say that with great affection) – he’s just so energetic, he can’t be otherwise! Bill Robbins is the realtor we will go back to – like many of his other clients. And in my mind, that’s the best confirmation you can ask, for how good he is.” – Karen L., Merion Village buyer, March, 2011

 

Sheila & Tobin's Beautiful 1920's Historic Home

“Bill of Gledhill Robbins & Talis is fantastic. He does a great job of understanding what you want as a client. He finds and shows homes that match those wants and then he works very hard to help you close the house in a timely manner.” -Tobin, German Village Buyer , 2010
“One word to describe Bill Robbins as a real estate agent.  AWESOME! He helped us find a home in 2 weeks for a great price in German Village. Also, he was diligent in following up with lenders, lawyers, and everyone involved in the process.  He works very, very hard for his clients (I would even get emails from him at 2 am sometimes!)  We could not have done it without him.   I would recommend Bill to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.” - Sheila, German Village Buyer, 2010
