Client Testimonials

“Bill did a great job of assisting us with the purchase of our new home. We were a rarity in that we were purchasing the home from out of state and he was able to provide live video for all homes and areas of our interest. We couldn’t be happier in our new home.”


“Bill was great to work with. He made the entire house hunting and buying experience fun and hassle-free! I highly recommend him to anyone listing or buying a home.”


“Bill is the best. Informed, professional, and a joy to deal with, he made the sale of our house a breeze by helping us get multiple offers in just three days (all of which were over our asking price). This was our third time working with Bill. We worked with him as buyers two times and as sellers once, and we would willingly use him again over any other Realtor.”


“Bill Robbins was an exceptional listing agent for the sale of our home. He was professional and courteous, but completely honest with us regarding all of the finer points of selling a home. He was incredibly informative regarding the best ways in which to stage or condominium, and gave recommendations for affordable improvements that could be made to increase the attractive quality of the home. He and his crew also took high quality images of the condo that really showed it in the best light. Bill was always prompt in responding to our questions, and was receptive to any concerns that we had. He was incredibly generous with his time. He fielded text messages, phone calls, and emails, often responding within minutes, even while on vacation. Bill was calm and professional in his dealings with other agents. Selling a home is stressful, and Bill’s expertise and knowledge, couple with his work ethic, went a long way toward relieving some of that stress. After all was said and done, it took less than two months from listing to close of our condo. I believe that he has truly mastered his profession. I would not recommend any other agent for the sale of a home.”


“I can’t say enough about how great Bill was to work with! He was readily available whenever we wanted to look at a house, brought extensive knowledge about the housing market and provided thorough and thoughtful insight into the home buying process. Additionally, Bill was extremely patient with my husband and I, as first time home buyers. He was available by text at all hours of the day and helped us navigate buying a house during a seller’s market. Bill brings all these qualities to the table for his clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. We purchased a home that needed a bit of work and Bill made suggestions of several individuals that did the work for us. Bill’s level of commitment to us was truly service-oriented. If you are looking for a relaxed, easy to work, dependable and well-humored realtor, I would highly recommend contacting Bill!”


“Bill Robbins was the ideal professional as an agent for the acquisition of our home. He was courteous, respectful, and completely open and honest regarding all of the finer points of home buying. He also maintained a collected and professional demeanor when dealing with other agents. He displayed a clear expertise and understanding of how the industry operates, and I believe that this had a direct, positive impact on the purchase and terms of purchase for our home. Most remarkably, Bill was incredibly generous with his time. He placed multiple offers on properties while on vacation, and was always so prompt in responding whenever we had a question or concern for him. I think that he has mastered his craft, and I could not recommend him enough as an agent for the purchase of a home.”


“William Robbins is the best Realtor in Central Ohio. He was ALWAYS available and went to bat for us every time we needed help from our lender, our buyers representative, etc. He still checks in with us on how our new house and neighborhood is for us. He helped us with people for remedies, etc. He’s the best!”


“Bill is great! He is extremely responsive (always responded immediately about scheduling viewings, questions about the process, general advice) and very knowledgeable about the process and the Columbus market. I was a first time home buyer and Bill made me feel comfortable, confident, and supported throughout the process (and made sure I didn’t miss any important steps). In a very competitive market he helped me make an offer that was accepted right away.”


“Bill was great! I heard he was magic before I ever worked with him and he certainly proved it with the purchase of our new house. He moved at lightning speed in a competitive market to ensure we secured the house we wanted. He was nothing but professional but very pleasurable to work with and easy to get ahold of. I’d recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.”


“Bill was very responsive to questions or concerns. He helped with great recommendations for a handyman, electrician and others, even three months after closing. I highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for a new home.”


“If you are in the market for a real estate agent, do yourself a huge favor and go with Bill Robbins of Gledhill Robbins & Talis. Friends of mine recommended him to me and I am SOOOOOOO gla d that they did! This was my first home buying experience, and if I hadn’t had Bill as my navigator, it would have been disastrous. A lot of the other factors in this equation were awful (from a difficult seller’s team, to a mortgage broker that totally dropped the ball,) but Bill definitely had my back! Super responsive, very persistent in making sure those other parties were on task, and highly knowledgeable about the industry…not to mention personable and funny. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with him – truly a Real Estate Superhero. If you want someone who will assertively represent your best interests and get things done right, this is your guy.”


“Bill Robbins is the best! We moved to German Village from across the country and were trying to purchase a home in a short time frame when homes were flying off the market. Because we couldn’t be in the area to look at homes, Bill previewed homes for us, took video to share, had all the inside info and was always HONEST in his valuation. He was never concerned about himself…just wanting to find the best deal for us. He brilliantly dealt with bidding wars, negotiated like a champ and found homes for us to view before they hit the market. He was always on top of everything, on time, super responsive and just plain fun to be around. We ended up purchasing a total fixer upper the day it came on the market and Bill dealt with getting the inspection and estimates, The German Village Commission, finding architects for bids, you name it. He made life easier. He is not only our realtor but also a friend! He will take care of you and your family.”


“It was by chance, and good luck, that William Robbins became our realtor. In summary we could not have asked for a better realtor and have nothing but good words to say about him and his profes sionalism. We were house hunting in the spring, in German Village and with very busy work schedules and we were able to find a home that we love thanks to the attentiveness of William. William always had our best interest in mind. Even when we were willing to pay more for a home he kept us practical. Toward the end of our closing William went above and beyond to make the closing happen in a timely manner. Again, we felt very lucky to have worked with William and would highly recommend him.”


“Bill Robbins represented me in a recent home sale and purchase. I love Bill’s wit which was perfect for those several times I started to slide into “stressed out” mode. He was extremely knowled geable about the neighborhood where I sold my home as well as the one in which I bought my new home. I got the deals I wanted on both homes which I attribute to Bill’s guidance.”


“Bill Robbins helped my husband and me on and off for years. Recently we bought and sold with Bill and it was a great experience. He never made promises he couldn’t keep, kept our expectations realistic, guided us through the twists and turns, prepared us each step of the way and was always available to us. He has a great sense of humor too so we enjoyed it on a personal level too! We’ll absolutely be working with him again. I would recommend him and his group to everyone!”


“I would say that Bill has to be THE best realtor in the city of Columbus. He helped my wife sell her first home, was the seller’s agent for the home I purchased, and has now helped us sell that place and buy our new home. He’s beyond helpful throughout the entire process. I don’t know if he sleeps, because he’s always available to text, email, call, drive over to your house in the evening, whatever. Everything is electronic in his world which makes signing paperwork so simple. My wife and I were actually able to put in an offer on a house with our phones over a dinner date.

When it came to the sale of our home Bill was extremely clever how he advertised it. We had a very small home in the German Village area and ended up do very well in the sale. He even cleaned up an accident our dog had just minutes before a showing (although I don’t think he wants to get used to that).

I really could go on and on about the little things that Bill did for us. He is professional, smart, and really listens to what you want…and really funny. Bill was an absolute pleasure to work with and it saddens me that the process is over, because he made home buying and selling so much fun.”


“We could not be more pleased with Bill Robbins and the Gledhill Robbins & Talis Group. We received multiple offers on our home – the first one within thirty minutes of being on the market, and we attribute this completely to Bill’s expertise in real estate, and talent for knowing exactly how to introduce a house to the market. With two toddlers, we were concerned about finding time to get the house ready to list, but Bill offered excellent, realistic, and managable suggestions which facilitated the process. From start to finish, it was always easy and comfortable to work with Bill, and he was available whenever we needed him. When it was time to negotiate, we appreciated his knowledge and confidence. There were similar houses in our neighborhood listed before ours came to market, and they were still listed while we were closing. Bill Robbins is an exceptional agent, and he has our highest recommendation.”


“Bill is honestly the best realtor my husband and I have ever dealt with. Bill sold our home in Bexley in December 2014 – not exactly an ideal time to put a home on the market. Nevertheless, Bill priced our home competitively and strategically negotiated with potential buyers, selling our home over asking price without our even having to hold an open house! As I mentioned, this was all in December, right around Christmas – when homes typically do not look great or sell quickly. In addition to obtaining a great result, which we attribute to his professional photos, knowledge of the neighborhood and market, and aggressive sales approach, he is also a pleasure to work with. He is responsive, trustworthy and conscientious. My family was moving from our home in Bexley out of state – Bill assisted us in a multitude of ways that were well beyond his realtor job description. He met with repair people to ensure remedies were completed. He checked our pipes to ensure nothing froze. He even sent us items that we forgot in the dishwasher. Bill is a professional and he is very good at what he does. I would not for one second hesitate to recommend Bill to sell or buy a home in the Columbus area.”


“Bill was very easy to work with. We are out of the country, so different time zones made communication a challenge. He listed the house and brought us an offer almost immediately. He went over and above to assist since we were not available to do a number of things. He is immediately responsive via email, which was the best way for us to communicate. I recommend Bill without hesitation for any of your real estate needs.”


“Bill Robbins was wonderful to work with! We relocated to Columbus from out of state in August 2014. We did a lot of online searches and could tell that homes in Columbus were selling very quickly. We first contacted Gledhill Robbins through their website on a Sunday morning, not expecting any response until Monday. Bill actually called us that same day, quickly gained an understanding of what we were looking for, and we made arrangements to view a few properties later in the week when we were in Columbus. The next day our plans changed and we ended up having some time to look at houses that Monday. Bill was able to get us into 4 houses that were not even on the market yet!

He even showed us a couple houses on the 4th of July because we happened to be in town and available to look. He never wasted our time showing us homes that would not work for us. He has vast knowledge of the Columbus area (we were focused on Bexley and German Village) and his advice on neighborhoods and pricing was invaluable. He was always very timely in his responses to our numerous questions. He is honest, ethical, and thorough in his explanations. His use of email and web based documents made it so easy to sign offers and other documents quickly from several states away. We highly recommend Bill, and we will definitely be using him in future real estate endeavors!!”


“Bill suggested I see a property that he thought was built for me. It was exactly what I described to him that I was looking for. He worked diligently to get my offer accepted. Meanwhile prepared my house for sale within a weeks time. Bill marketed the house well and it was in contract immediately. Great attention to detail during the entire process and strong advocate for his clients.”


“We’re first time buyers and Bill was so nice and helpful! He was always available and answered our (many) questions honestly and straightforwardly. He knows the area incredibly well and gave us great advice. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in Columbus.”


“Bill Robbins was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend him and his group to help you buy or sell a home. He helped us through all of the hurdles of being a first-time home buyer and we now own our “forever” home thanks to his guidance and quick response time to new MLS listings. He set up a filter for us for the MLS and also made sure to email us if anything especially promising came on the market in our style. That is how we were able to get the house that we did. The market in Upper Arlington is so crazy everyone fights over houses. We were the first ones into the house and we put an offer in before anyone else even saw it, thanks to Bill’s close attention to new listings. Not every Realtor is going to be this attentive, and we are so lucky that we had Bill on our side!”


“Bill was great to work with and was always available to answer my questions and discuss the next steps in the process. He was especially helpful in executing all of the details between when the agreement is initially signed to when it finally closes. He made this potentially stressful time very manageable for me.”


“We worked with Bill Robbins who tireless showed us dozens of houses in a two month period. With his help, we were able to find the perfect house in a relatively short amount of time.”


We worked with William Robbins to purchase a home in Columbus. Bill was great, and I cannot say enough good things about him. He understood our needs and our wish list, he got us into a house that was the right size, location, and price for us.
Bill was informative, responsive to our questions, and always kept us informed. He was great during negotiations and helped us (as first time home buyers) understand what we needed to do to inspect, purchase, and own a home. I would recommend him to anyone.”


“Bill was great! He was incredibly responsive to calls/emails and very upfront about the whole process. We ended up in a house that we absolutely love! Would definitely recommend.”


“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!”


“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. ”


“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!”


“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.”


“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.”


“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.”


“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.”


“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!”


“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!”


“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.”


“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!”
