"William sold 2 houses for us and we were very satisfied with his results. One was through a trust where William ended up being a consensus builder with four of us to come to a decision on exactly what to do to get the house ready for sale. He actually had a buyer before for the house was listed. The second house he sold he gave us great advice on what improvements to do and more importantly what improvements not to do in order to sell the house. The sale price on both houses was more than we anticipated, so on that account we were very happy. William or his assistant would always get back to us in a timely manor and make sure anything we had a question about was answered. I would definitely use William again."

"It was such a pleasure to work with William and his team to buy our new home. He was creative, supportive, and patient. He had wonderful ideas and was dedicated to answering our questions and address our concerns. Marlene on his team was very professional, kind, and was there to help and make sure we had what we needed. We are very grateful for their service and help. Amazing team!!"
"I’d like to extend my appreciation and recommendation for William Smith’s services. I’ve contacted him many times over the years and have always received clear informative answers and good information. I believe he has very keen insight and often has brought helpful information into the conversation which broadened my perspective and contributed to more confident decisions on my part. I’ve noticed a few instance when the information was given with my best interest in mind even while going somewhat in opposition to my listing the property for sale. I very much appreciate this. All our conversations have been very helpful. While I’ve never made the decision to list or sell my property, William has consistently offered friendly advice and generous helpful discussion whenever I’ve called with my concerns. When I am ready to list my home, William is first choice for listing broker. Thank you William Smith. Best regards. Bill DeLap"

"If you are looking to sell, or buy, a house, I would HIGHLY recommend William Smith and Marlene Wilson! William's expertise and follow-up was way beyond my expectations of a broker. Not only did he and Marlene do a fabulous job staging my house and giving suggestions that would lead to a fast sale, he followed up with me on the house that I bought in Oceanside, and helped me with directions and suggestions that the broker down here was not doing. If I had any type of question at all, I would call William, and he would give me the correct direction for me to go in. He became someone that I smiled and looked forward to receiving his call each day, whether I was in Pacific Grove, trying to sell my old home, or I was in my new home in Oceanside! When I was tired and stressed (which comes normally with a sale and move), he would cheer me up with his "stories" and his wonderful sense of humor. Marlene Wilson, his right-hand-gal, was equally as fabulous! "
