"We highly endorse Bill Williams, our real estate agent. Throughout the pandemic lockdown, the fires, heat wave, and uncertainty for all of 2020, Bill has steadily worked toward the sale of our home, communicating with us every step of the way. Our successful sale closed yesterday. "- Terry & Carolyn #501

"I see Bill always selling in my neighborhood. I’m so glad I worked with him. We got the price I wanted. He was a great advisor, and took the right steps to get me the most out of the sale of my home. He made the whole process seamless and smooth. I sold my apartment during the time of the Corona Virus, and any wrong step could have caused the deal to fall apart but we managed to close on time. I will definitely work with Bill again in the future for my real-estate activities, and highly recommend Bill to others!"- Mandana J.

Instead of sales chaos, we’ve been able to focus on our move. " - Joe, Shaul, & Zoe

"I have worked with Bill as both a buyer and seller for nearly 15 years and highly recommend his services. The most recent sale of my condo in SF is the fifth transaction we have completed together, and the whole experience once again exceeded my expectations. Bill is much more than a just an agent. He gets to know you and is a great collaborator. He always responds to my questions immediately, whether or not they are directly related to an active transaction, and once you are involved in negotiations/escrow, you will find that both Bill and his team are totally on top of things and extremely easy to work with. "
- Jennifer F.

He is also a very empathic, good person, easy to relate to and cares. Can be aggressive when needed, laid back when not. Point is, he got us in a SFH in SF, where there were like 100 other families many all cash. It was really the only home we could find of it's equal in the entire city. Job done! Don't look any further. Get Bill on your team. " - Colette & John

"I chose to use Bill to sell my condo because of his vast knowledge of the I lived in. I've known Bill professionally for 7 years and have used him to lease and sell my condo. He was always available when I needed to contact him and got the sale of my condo wrapped up in 5 days! " - Ceri C.

"Bill has a lot of connections with Mission Bay owners/potential sellers, as well as other agents. He's very efficient and professional. Bill was able to found us an off-market home, and it must have to be one of the most stress-free first home purchases - especially in this crazy San Francisco market. I would definitely recommend Bill to help you find a home in Mission Bay. " - Yvonne N.

We truly appreciate the experience with Bill and would work with him again. His sense of humor was similar to ours, and being on the same wavelength is a plus.

Bill was just right for our lifestyle and personalities. "

- David & Barry, Park Terrace owners who sold in 2013

"I was impressed with Bill Williams from the first time I met him. He did an outstanding job listing and selling our unit. He helped us prepare the unit, advertised it, and ultimately sold it for more than listing price. The staff at Climb are very good and well-organized. I highly recommend Bill for buying and selling your properties. He is straightforward and assertive without being too aggressive. "
- Michael, Suzan, & Mary Desing

"Bill was extremely proactive in lining up buyers and a backup even after there was an accepted offer. He made himself available to answer questions and put my mind at rest.

"I have now bought and sold a condo. For the buying we used an good realtor. He did the usual things, he was nice, we liked him. For the selling, we used Bill Williams and the difference was night and day. It's a buyer's market and we knew that selling our SOMA condo at a decent price was going to be tough. Bill stepped up to the plate and took on the challenge with a smile. I have never seen such a thorough, hard-working professional. He kept us up to date on the latest sales in our neighborhood and did tons of background work to make sure we were priced right, that we were hitting the market on the right date, and that our place showed well. He was fair, a straight shooter, and realistic. And the proof is in the pudding. He got our condo sold in three weeks. AMAZING! I really can't recommend him enough. Awesome, awesome person to work with. " - Alison P., Park Terrace resident sold in 2011

"Bill Williams is one of the top realtors in the City. Bill recently sold my loft which he helped me to buy several years ago. While I was doubtful about going to market as my property was in litigation, he convinced me that there was sufficient market demand to obtain my target pricing. Every realtor has their own personality, and Bill is able to get results in a low key methodic way. He was involved in the entire process including staging, minor repairs and closing. I could not be more pleased with the results. While this review is primarily focused on my recent sale, it is important to note that throughout the real estate recession, Bill stayed in touch with me to provide sales comp information and other items that I needed for a refinance, etc. That is the service and relationship level that differentiates Bill from many other realtors. "
- Laurence H.

"Bill Williams helped me to strategically price and sell my apartment resulting in multiple offers and I am pleased with the results. Definitely I would recommend Bill to my friends or anyone buying or selling a home in San Francisco. He is extremely professional, and he always answered all my questions promptly. This is the second time I have worked with him. " - Roberto R.

"We were very fortunate to have Bill help us buy our first home in San Francisco and he was very thorough and resourceful in explaining each step of the process. He was in constant contact with us, which helped us know things were getting done and moving in the right direction. He always responded very quickly and we are very pleased with the results. We also appreciated his style of communication, his professionalism, and his genuine care for us as clients. He was always available to answer any of our questions and he was also VERY understandable with any of our worries and anxieties and would do all that he can to address them. We are now happy homeowners thanks to Bill! Even after we closed, Bill has been so helpful and resourceful in helping us transition into our new home! Now that's a great real estate agent! " - Lee C.

"We met Bill at an open house while looking for a condo in South Beach. Our situation was challenging for a number of reasons. First, we had a huge laundry list of things we wanted in a property. Second, we needed to use a VA loan, which is complicated and extremely rare in San Francisco. For condos, the property has to be approved by the VA (which takes months) and none in the city are. Bill nailed the property immediately. It had everything that we asked for. We wouldn't have to compromise on anything. Bill then submitted the VA paperwork and we waited. Less than two months later the property was approved and two units were for sale. Bill filled out the paperwork for us and helped us come up with an offer which was fair and we hoped would be accepted. The offer was accepted and Bill did a great job of managing the difficult escrow process. We have been in our condo now for about a year and love the property. We highly recommend Bill! " - Jeff M.

"Bill came highly recommended from our mortgage banker and lived up to our expectations and beyond. After losing out on our first bid we had experienced the ineffective hands-off approach of using a realtor that worked for a major website, and we were ready to work with someone that took the time to understand our needs and to truly represent us to the sellers. With Bill the difference was night and day. He drove us around town, showed us all kinds of properties, and got to know the sellers and agents in order to put our best foot forward. In the end we got an amazing home that we love, and Bill continued to work for us and represent us long after we got the keys. A great guy, don't hesitate to work with Bill! "
- John M.

About Bill
Bill bought his first San Francisco loft after moving his design and marketing business from Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1997. It wasn't long before Bill decided to harness his experience with design and technology collaboration, with his new-found passion: working with people buying and selling real estate in San Francisco.

Because of this background, Bill doesn’t see himself as a salesman. His role more closely resembles that of a consultant where his design, marketing, and hyper-local insight are shared in support of his clients’ goals. For this reason, developing a long-term working relationship with Bill is strategic and his loyalty is mutual with clients.

Bill believes that working as a team in collaboration with his clients; by sharing the tools of the trade, can help them save both time and money, making it easier and more fun to buy or sell their home. In 2019 Bill moved to COMPASS for the tools and culture to better enable close collaboration with buyers & sellers.

Bill is the #1 San Francisco agent at Park Terrace (by sales & rental volume), and holds all the records: the highest price-per-square-foot; highest price; most sold; most sales facing all directions, and on every floor.
