  • William helped me buy a home

      We are veterans who moved from Washington state, and we started the buying process in late January/early February of 2018. We found Bill through Homelight, and he contacted us within the hour. He was experienced, knowledgeable about the area, market, and lenders, friendly, and always available if we needed something. Once we found a hot home that we loved, he quickly made arrangements to do a video walk-through for us the next day, and made the entire negotiating process easy for us despite it being long distance and a long wait to close. Also, since we loved the style of the home and most of the furniture (it was originally to be an estate sale), he helped us make a great deal with the sellers to get not only the home, but the furniture as well. This has truly been a great experience for us, and I would recommend Bill over and over to anyone.

    • William showed me homes

        I bought 4 different properties from William in the last 6 months few months on land contracts, that Bill was somewhat new too. He did all the research with working with our lawyers and got us the best prices from the seller. He even taught us a few things on buying properties on land contracts, as this type of purchase was new to us too. He was always available via text or phone call within a few hours if not sooner. I would highly recommend him to anybody as he was very honest and sincere and even showed us pitfalls within the properties to look out for and went above an beyond to make sure we had all the proper paperwork in order even emailing us late at night when he should of been sleeping :) - All I can say is Thank You for everything!

      • Please! Please! Please! Take a look at using Bill Thompson as your agent when selling your home. He made me thousands! The other agents wanted to list my home for a lower amount and at a higher commission rate. Bill was not out for a fast pay check like the other BIG NAME AGENTS in my area. He was honest and told me to start at a higher listing price. He suggested 20 thousand more. I got the extra 20 thousand and he charged me less. On top of that he made a substantial charitable contribution to the Cancer Center in Kalamazoo. He is a gem.

      • Bill helped me sell all of my rental properties over a span of 3 years, totaling 8 homes sold. He always had little pointers for us to do to the homes that would help in a quick sale process. He understood what I was trying to do and priced them accordingly. If I had more to sell it would be through Bill Thompson.

        - bevo usmc
      • Bill did an awesome job. He sold our home in less than two months and we got an offer $20k higher than the first realtor we talked to was going to list it for. He is responsive and truly cares about his clients.

        - RickBrown86
      • This is the second time I have used Bill for buying/selling and he has been very helpful and kept me informed. I would recommend him as I feel he is good at following up and getting things done. My condo sold 48 hours after listing!

      • Bill understood the value of the local area and guided us in evaluating offers presented from buyers. He almost always answered his phone but if unavailable returned calls within minutes to an hour.

      • Bill worked nonstop for nine months to help us find the right home as a newly married couple. He turned out to be an excellent negotiater and we are delighted with our new home. We expect to close on another house tomorrow. Bill has taken care of many of the details and given us awesome advice. He has earned every bit of his commission. I have bought and sold about a dozen houses in my life and this is the ONE Realtor I would call upon again.

        - zuser20170506145915159

He was very knowledgeable about the area, the different neighborhoods and the not desirable neighborhoods. - I felt that he really understood my needs in a home, location, distance to my job and that he was up-front with me - He gave his opinion or suggestions when asked. I felt that he was advising me honestly and in my best interest. - If I had to move again, I would call upon him to represent me.

      • I was on the fence about buying foreclosed homes. Was very helpful in giving me information without being a salesperson. I decided it was not the right way to go for me. Once I am ready to purchase a home, I will be giving him a call.

I would recommend him any time to make the process an easy one. He gave me many tips and wise advise along the way to make a good quick sale.

      • Bill looked out for my best interests. He wasn't just trying to sell me a house, he was looking to get me into the right house for me, no matter how long it took. When we found the perfect one, we did not hesitate and Bill made it happen. Hard working and trustworthy.

        - dhlasher
      • We worked with Bill to sell our home in Battle Creek. He was extremely helpful and responsive. Since we currently live full time in Florida, Bill was super in making himself available when we were visiting Battle Creek. Working with him, we established a reasonable asking price and we believe we achieved a good result. Even though our closing process was somewhat challenging because of issues on the Buyer's side, Bill was steady as a rock and provided good counsel and guidance during the process which was successful. I highly recommend Bill to anyone wanting to buy or sale in the Battle Creek area.

      • I've used Bill as my Realtor for my past three homes. He is very professional, knowledgible, and is quick to respond to any concerns you may have during the buying and selling process. I plan to continue a long term business relationship with him.

        - lowriderob
      • Bill was so helpful and immediately responsive to anything we needed. He would reply in a quick timely manner and make the entire house buying process go very smoothly.

        - jayellebee28
      • Bill helped with a very difficult sale experience. He was very responsive and followed through on everything. His commission rate was lower than expected than I have seen with other realtors with my selling/buying experience in the past. I would highly recommend.

        - mellinger38
      • Bill helped us sell our house and buy another. He advised us on preparing for a FHA sale, so we were able to have needed repairs done before the FHA appraiser came in. We had no findings, so no delays in closing. He also gave us excellent advise on staging our home. In our search for a new home, we found him to have extensive knowledge of the area. He was able to alert us to concerns we would never know about. (water contamination, zoning issues, etc.) He also knew what to look for in a house that might cause issues later. He kept us updated and closings went smoothly. We really enjoyed our experience with him and would highly recommend him.

      • Best realtor ever!!! We had 2 realtors before hiring Bill that were unable to sell our house. Listed our house with Bill and had 2 offers within the first 2 days our house was on the market. He saved us thousands on commission. Bill is creative, persistent, knowledgeable, and will look our for your best interest.

        - becbosworth16
      • Bill was never more than a phone call away and helped us clear all the hurdles that come with buying a home. He negotiated a price we did not believe we could get and saved us thousands on the price of the home and the closing costs. At one point just before closing the bank needed a repair before going any further. Bill found a contractor on a weekend and even helped the contractor complete the repair to the satisfaction of the bank. Bill advised us in the sale of our home and ended up selling within the first month. We had originally planned to sell our home ourselves but ended up saving more money by having Bill as our agent. A very positive experience in every respect.

        - hardinnorm
      • Bill listed our home in May, we had a buyer in June, and had the closing of the property in August. Bill is competent and is very knowledgeable in the real estate field. He is quick to respond and always cheerful. We would be happy to recommend him to others in need of his services.

        - bsage23
      • I had a question about a property that was in a bid situation and he answered my questions. He responded within hours of my email. I will use him when I purchase a property in Michigan. Nice service.

        - richard knapp
      • I was so impressed with Bill Thompson. I will recommend him to all of my friends and family!! We explained to him what we were looking for in a home and asked him to sell our house. The same day he came to our house, he said "I think I know someone that may be interested", and they are now living happily ever after in our old home that we just out grew. Bill worked hard to find us a new home that would meet all our needs and he was successful. He negotiation skills were excellent!! We were able to sell our house for the full price that we were asking and he helped us save $15,000 off the price of our new home!! But that's not all...He only charged us 3% commission to sell our old house. That says a lot about a person!! He is such a giving individual. We can't thank him enough for all his dedication and hard work.

      • Returned my initial call on New Year's Eve which was impressive. Pulled together a few homes in a short span and was helpful discussing the community.

        - kdwilliamson77
      • Bill was the best choice in Realtors we could have made. We had a short time frame and were looking for a pretty specific first home and Bill found exactly what we were looking for! His knowledge and professionalism helped us through our very first home purchase with ease. And at the same time he found a new home for the owners we just bought the house from and lowered our total commission charge. It doesn't matter what kind of home you are looking for, I would always recommend Bill Thompson.

        - beth 0904
      • Bill always answered questions quickly and seemed very professional during the buying process. He knew who to contact for inspections and etc. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is buying a home. Thank you Bill for your services, Troy Reed

      • As a first time home buyer he was very easy to work with, very helpful with all questions, great response time when we contacted him. He was especially helpful when a lean was found on the home we were looking to buy, he made sure that they got the lean taken care of before purchase. Great guy to work with, I would recommend him to anyone especially first time buyers.

        - tjaypetzold
      • Bill was very helpful in all aspects of finding the house and in closing on the house. In addition, He took time out during his off duty time to let us in the house to take measurements and make final plans on the house. This in my view was above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate professional. I would definitely recommend him to others.

        - MarkPote
      • Bill was very helpful during my first home buying experience he answered every question that came at him and if he didn't know he made sure I got an answer ASAP. Mr. Thompson made sure I understood the realtor jargon and was very honest and up front which can be very hard to come by. He made sure before he handed my keys over that everything was in working order the central air conditioner stopped working as I was signing all the paper work to be handed over the keys to my home and he made sure it was working when I put those keys in door! He took care of me that's for sure:)

        - astergonzales22
      • Mr Thompson had a great understanding of what my wife and I wanted in our new home. No time was wasted looking at properties that would not have worked for us (that was a first) had we not wound up having to move to Florida for my wife's job we would have definitely saw a deal through with him. Coming from a lifetime sales background his honesty and sincerity were very refreshing. Very highly recommended

        - user50260400
      • I contacted a couple Realtors and met with them at my mothers home that needed to be sold and the proceeds to go for her care in an AFC home. The realtors priced the home at $100,000 to 105,000. I felt this was very low and contacted Bill Thompson. Bill explained the market for my mothers house, provided listings that would be competing in the market and homes that have sold in this area. Bill came up with a price that would place it in the marketplace for a quick sale. The listing price was $125,000 and we accepted an offer of $118,000 within 3 weeks of the listing. Bill Thompson's professional knowledge of the market helped us sell the property with a increase of $18,000 for my mother. NO OTHER REALTOR WOULD LIST THIS HOME FOR THIS PRICE AND EVEN STATED IT WOULD NOT SELL FOR THIS PRICE! It was a pleasure dealing with Bill Thompson, the sale closed without any problems and I am very grateful to him for maximizing the monies for my mother's care. I highly recommend him!

        - user26884292
      • I went to Bill Thompson to look at a home in the country near Battle Creek. When we looked at the property that I called him about, it turned out to be totally different from what I expected, and not up to the standards I wanted. The house, he informed me was overpriced for it's condition. He apparently went back to his office and went through listings, because he called me within a few days with three other houses that he thought might be more to my liking. He showed me the houses, and then helped me to get the price down on the one that I liked. If I remember correctly, I bought the house for 15% less than the asking price.
