Comment: William Bolls was my rock during the process of buying an apartment in NYC -- not an easy task. It is a tough to find the right fit without compromise, and he helped us stay the course and pointed out many factors we would not have known to consider (based his years of experience!). William was a true professional in every aspect from scheduling viewings to finalizing the paperwork. Plus hes just such a nice human :) and even helped us post-purchase by advising us on protocol and referring industry pros to support the move, and beyond. Cant say enough great things about William as a person but also about how he facilitated the process!

He is incredibly knowledgeable and professional, takes his work seriously but has a warm relationship with his clients and we truly consider him a friend. He is someone we will continue to recommend and work with in the future. Can’t say enough great things about William…He always exceeds our expectations!

Comment: William was the perfect guide for us as we were unfamiliar with Litchfield and Fairfield counties. Over the course of four Saturdays we looked at 24 houses In about 10 different communities before finding one that we love.As we followed him in our car, William would call us, pointing out particular characteristics and highlights Of the towns we were driving through. He always had a great recommendation for a place to get lunch and lots of enthusiasm for looking at the houses.He helped us focus on noticing the things we could change versus the things we could not change about a particular property and thinking about the importance of that. He gave us great advice; we never felt pushed; he was available all the time; and he was just exactly what you would hope for in a realtor. He has a great sense of humor and is extremely kind to boot.Do yourself a favor and work with him. If you do, the process of looking for a house will be as rewarding as finding a house!

Comment: Lately we’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of Realtors in the process of buying and selling homes and land, and we have to say that Will is the best Realtor that perhaps we have ever retained. Glowing reviews typically observe that they can’t say enough good things about the person or service that they are reviewing, but in this case the cliché is absolutely true.We were searching for a home to relocate to from 2,000 miles away. This distance factor made the process cumbersome and sometimes stressful for us, but Will always maintained a good sense of humor and a sunny outlook, took it all in stride, and kept us calm. He was always gracious and willing to preview homes with us via FaceTime. He was (and is) personable, always patient, courteous, professional, thorough, responsive, gave wise and insightful advice, and early on in the process we came to feel that he was a good friend of ours.When we finally found a home that my wife really loved but about which I was a bit hesitant, rather than trying to close us on the deal Will took pains to inquire about my concerns, discussed them, and made it clear that if I wasn’t comfortable with the property he wouldn’t be comfortable proceeding with the endeavor. This sincere personal interest in and concern for client satisfaction over and above one’s own financial interest was so much appreciated, and resulted in a resolution which ultimately enabled a successful home purchase.After that, Will walked us through the process in a very understanding way, and was always available whenever we needed him— and believe me, he had to do a lot of hand-holding!Finally, a telling anecdote: one of the features that we wanted included with whatever home we purchased was some land. At the time we found it, there was still some snow on the ground and to access the view from the land it was necessary to clamber up a high and fairly steep (and slippery) slope. Will wasted no time suggesting we climb up even though he happened to be wearing sub-optimal footwear for such an adventure. This incident cemented our view that Will was definitely an above-and-beyond Realtor… and person.And yet despite all the foregoing, words still can’t say enough. It will have to suffice to say thank you, Will, for everything and not the least for being a great friend.

Comment: I first worked with William about 12 years ago to purchase a condo. When looking for a slightly different environment and a bit more space, I immediately reached out to William to discuss options. William took the time to give me several options I could pursue and what the different options would entail.I eventually did a simultaneous sale/purchase. The circumstances were stressful but William guided everything expertly!William KNOWS real estate.In addition, William has an extensive network of top colleagues to assist with a multitude of needs - attorney, loan officer, insurance agent, and so forth.And most importantly William is a great human being.

Comment: William was patient and helpful in our search. He was great in thinking about valuation and bidding strategy. He was also really helpful in thinking about the purchase of a second home, and using tools like zoom to show us properties when we werent in the area. He was very responsive and a pleasure to spend time with.

Comment: It has been a pleasure to work with William and his team once again.

I recommend him without reservation. Thank you, William!

Comment: I recently sold my apartment in UWS of Manhattan with William. William was reliable, personable, and just a great experience. For context, if I wanted to chat about anything (price, logistics, next steps) he always made time and was a voice of reason. I would recommend anyone to work with William if you want to get your property sold or bought

Comment: William was an absolute pleasure to work with--and this is not only my view, it was shared by our loan officer and attorney! He is transparent, responsive, thoughtful and always optimistic--a key attribute as a buyers agent in the current market. The fact that he lives in Roxbury has also been helpful not just in terms of his understanding of the local market, but hes been very helpful since weve closed in terms of making recommendations / referrals. As an illustrative anecdote to all of the above, a few days before closing he offered to store boxes for us and deliver them after closing in his pick-up! I couldnt have imagined a better agent.

Comment: Working with William Bolls and his team was outstanding. They were friendly and responsive, but most importantly, they were honest and transparent. Trying to sell my NYC condo during a pandemic was a challenge. However, every step of the way their read of the market was spot on, and all changes we made worked out to my benefit. Highly recommend working with Compass and William.

Comment: William was the real estate agent for me and my wife from Nov 20 - May 21. He was an integral part in helping us find and close on our dream house in CT. He is extremely knowledgable about all things real estate and was the ideal agent for first time buyers like ourselves. He listened and understood exactly what we were looking for and gave us solid advice. William was early for every appointment and always maintained a level of professionalism while also being personable, kind, and sincere. He was very communicative and quick to respond to our needs. Our closing was delayed for a few months due to personal issues on the sellers end and in the meantime William helped us continue to look for new places WHILE still fighting for us to get our dream home. Our closing went super smoothly and we are so in love with our new home. We felt like we made a friend and would want William again as our agent for any future real estate transactions and will recommend him to family/friends without reservation.-A+I

Comment: William and his team were great. They stand out for efficiency, service, and professionalism. In a difficult COVID-19 market and a difficult transaction, they were on their game. The team and their firm leveraged technology without any excuses. William is a fantastic listener, looking for what is important to me in making a successful real estate transaction, and how I work. I am handling personal real estate activity in several markets, and William stands out across those markets. Thanks William.

Comment: William has helped me find a tenant for my rental not once, but on three separate occasions. He patiently navigated me through the process the first time around and subsequently identified the right fit candidates.He provides fact-based information about the market, experience-based and personalized advice -- and moves with speed, calm, and efficiency on the overall process. Most recently, William and his team managed to help me find and vet a tenant in early Spring 2020 when it seemed nearly impossible to do so. I highly recommend working with William.

Comment: I was the buyer for a Manhattan condo. I did not have a Broker. When I found the apartment I was looking for William was the broker for the seller. I negotiated with William. Once we agreed on a price acceptable to both parties, William and his team worked close with me getting the application process to the Managing agent on a timely and professional way. He made it easy for me to get my questions answered. It took 30 minutes at the closing. I was very impressed with the support William and the team provided. I would be happy to recommend William and his team to other potential buyers or sellers.

Comment: I recommend William and his associate Laura without hesitation. I recently purchased a condo in Manhattan with them. Laura was always punctual and extremely nice when visiting apartments and sent suggestions within my price range. When I settled on a condo William had great suggestions for real estate attorneys and walked m3 through the condo board application with ease. When there were hold ups with building management they were able to work with us to solve whatever problem the presented itself. As a first time home buyer it was fantastic to have such a supportive team in our corner. I could not recommend them enough.

Comment: William and his team helped my sister and I purchase a condo in Manhattan. Laura Ionata came with us to every showing -- and we looked at a ton of apartments. She was flexible with our crazy work schedules, taking time on Saturdays, Sundays or after conventional work hours on weekdays. It was clear they do their research, as after each open house we would receive a detailed email with comps and special insight into the property and any building that interested us. William and his team were extremely responsive and knowledgeable over email (our preferred method of communication). Im sure they would have been great on the phone too. They helped us find a great real estate attorney and sat with us through a grueling closing. We could not have done it without them!

Comment: William and his team were incredibly knowledgeable, responsive to our needs, and highly professional. They were also very kind, supportive, and thoroughly enjoyable to work with over our months long search for the perfect UWS apartment we were hoping to find- and FOUND, thanks to all their help and many hours of assistance!!! They navigated us through the entire co-op purchase process, initially arranging for us to see about 50 different units that all met our criteria, providing us with considered, thoughtful feedback and recommendations, and worked very closely with us on preparation of a comprehensive board package that enabled us to successfully close on our dream home just last week!We would wholeheartedly recommend William and his team to any seller or buyer who wants to work with a truly wonderful broker who gets excellent results, while always maintaining an extremely pleasant, calm, collaborative and totally no-pressure approach to your goals.

Comment: Buying your first apartment in NYC can be a very intimidating and stressful experience - but it wasnt for me thanks to William. William is the most patient, detail oriented, and pleasant person to have on your side representing you and your best interests. I knew nothing about buying an apartment but he walked me through the whole process and, quite frankly, did it all for me. He just made it easy and I will be forever grateful for that. And to quote my co-op board that was the best board package we have ever seen so Im not his only fan. I also count on Williams rolodex of resources to help me out all the time with professional references for anything I need real estate wise and beyond. He has great insight, instinct and an all around good guy.

Real estate buying is not an easy process, especially in New York city. Yet, from the search itself through the negotiation process, document requirements and closing, William’s expertise made the process as seamless as possible. Moreover, William is a gentleman and was a pleasure to work with throughout the transaction.

Comment: William first helped us in 2013 as first time purchasers of a COOP on the Upper West Side. Having come off a less then favorable first attempt with a different broker we were skeptical and thought that maybe purchasing property was just a horrible process. We couldnt have been more wrong. William and his team made the whole process so relaxing and pleasant. When we decided to sell in 2018 there was never a question as to who we would call. All told William and his team have helped us purchase 2 properties now and sell 1, if and when we ever decide to move again we will most definitely seek Williams guidance and assistance!

Comment: I cant imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William. As an out-of-town buyer, we faced additional challenges when we decided to buy an apartment in the city. As cliched as it sounds, William truly made us feel like his only clients. Its not a simple process and we required a decent amount of hand-holding. He was there for us every step of the way, even anticipating a lot of our concerns. One of the most valuable characteristics of a good agent is responsiveness. Any time we contacted William--and it was often--he responded quickly and completely. William will definitely be our agent on future transactions.
