"Moving is always stressful. A lot to do and a lot of questions. With Bill's knowledge, guidance and professionalism, we worked through all of the obstacles in both the sale and purchase of our new home. Thank you for all of your great work in making everything go smoothly!" Don and Karen B.
"Bill was wonderful when we sold our horse farm in Tewksbury Township. He brought many horse clients through, including the ones that actually bought our home. He was great at suggesting how we could improve the property for sale without spending too much money. He was always responsive and a true pleasure to work with. We recommend him without hesitation." Jim McGinnis and Laurie A.
"Bill, you were amazing from start to finish through this entire process. I can't thank you enough. Your experience and professionalism certainly shines through the way you easily handle the listing process of determining our value, to staging advice and the secure safe system you provide for the showings was superb. The fact that we sold so quickly just shy of the list price was exciting but finding us our new house and how smoothly it all happened was certainly all due to your skill in the process and always being one step ahead. Thank you so much Bill for being an instrumental and valuable part in our next chapter in life." Karen E.
"Bill really pays attention to detail, and is extremely organized. He was always available and we always felt he had our best interests at heart. I would definitely recommend him and he would be my first choice in buying or selling a house." Nancy P.
"Bill Landesman was a fantastic partner in our search for a new home. He was attentive to our criteria we wanted in a home and worked diligently to ensure we were provided with suitable data and able to visit houses in a timely fashion. We truly appreciated Bill’s honest opinion and guidance which showed in his every interaction with us. Having his knowledge base on the areas we were searching was invaluable and helped us narrow down the perfect town for us and eventually the perfect house. Bill stands out among the competition and not only would I highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a home or property but we would absolutely work with him again." Roger and Daniele V.
"Bill has helped me buy and sell 2 homes. He is highly personable, professional, accessible, responsive and goes well beyond the textbook requirements of his job. He very knowledgeable and has a particular expertise in equine properties. When I hear the tales of woe that my friends relate about their realtors, I realize how wonderful Bill is." Louisa S.
"My husband and I found Bill Landesman through the internet based on his equine background and the area for which he served. We were longtime horse lovers but never horse owners so we needed appropriate guidance to find a home with an existing barn or property that could accommodate a barn in the future. We had no idea we would get so much more from a Realtor than just houses to check out at and what to look for in a barn. Bill enlightened us to the two little words so very important in our area ... impervious coverage. He explained that homeowners in our area are only allowed to build on a small percentage of their property. This meant we needed to have an idea of how large we wanted our barn to be if we had to build. And I wish I could have chosen ten stars instead of just five for Bill's responsiveness rating because when you're an anxious home buyer and emailing questions at 1:00 in the morning the wait time for a response can seem like an eternity. But if Bill was up at 1:00 in the morning, he'd reply. If he was sleeping, like normal folks should be at that hour, an email reply would come first thing in the morning. We never ONCE had the feeling that we were waiting on information or a callback. We have lived in our home for three years and have referred Bill to countless people. We love our home and are in the early stages of having my dream barn built. Oh, and did we mention he's just a very nice guy?! Conscientious, knowledgeable, kind ... bottom line, we wouldn't use anyone else." Don and Ann R.
"Bill is the consummate professional. His assistance over the past year as we relocated to New Jersey from Florida was invaluable. His knowledge of the local area, his network of professional contacts from home inspectors to attorneys to contractors and his awesome negotiation skills make him a truly remarkable realtor. He carefully listens to your needs and goals and doesn't waste time showing you homes that won't fit your lifestyle. We have bought and sold l houses in several states over the years and I can honestly say that Bill Landesman is truly the best of the best in real estate sales." Bill and Ann F.
