Testimonials for Bill Bodouva, ABR
My wife and I have been traveling the country for years as a result of my job. We finally decided to settle down back in our native state of New York and start our family. Bill Bodouva made the process of finding a home tailored to our financial and personal needs soo simple it was honestly shocking. He left not a single one of our many calls and inquiries unanswered and consistently operated on a professional level. I have recommended him to a number of my friends and he is in the process of helping my brother find a new home for himself as well. We could not have been more satisfied with the services he provided us and can not wait to bring our baby home to our beautiful new home!
In May 2017, I contacted Bill and three other top rated agents after researching Buyer’s Agents in Port Washington, NY for our home search. My company has relocated us to 3 states over the past 9 years, each time we had a National Assoc. of Realtor’s ABR to help us find our new home and relocate. That said, we were initially disappointed that there weren’t a few ABR’s to choose from, so we interviewed 3 CBR agents who were affable and seemed qualified, but then we met Bill. We were immediately impressed and confident, that we were in the hands of a true real estate professional. Bill answered all of our questions, provided pricing info, incredible market knowledge and a step by step, schedule from our initial meeting to our closing. Bill negotiated price, terms and our offer prevailed in a multiple offer situation because Bill included in our offer that we’d retained all of the pros he’d recommended and that he’d monitor the entire transaction; his good reputation sealed our deal. We are delighted to say that our 4th move in the one decade was phenomenally smooth, Bill’s professional service was all encompassing and among the highest level of service we’ve experienced, bar none. If you’re buying a home on Long Island, NY, We Highly Recommend you contact Bill Bodouva, to act as your ABR Buyer’s Representative.
Thank you Bill, Michael, Alice and Mikey!
Bill is an outstanding person. His knowledge, resources, professionalism and friendly personality above all made the life so much easier for us. He is very thorough and spend so much time with us explaining every aspect of the property. I refuse to deal with anyone else but him in the future. And been referring him to all my friends and family. He is an asset. He is a must have. I can't say enough but I feel so lucky to have found him as he made our dream home come true
He knew exactly what I wanted. I moved to Manhasset from Sands Point and my sons and myself have never been happier. We live in an upscale community with the nicest, most friendly people who I love. Bill was professional had contract signed only 3 days after it was listed, his skillful negotiations and ability to move quickly is why I have this home. I have been here since February 2016 and I love it. Thanks Bill you made me and my sons so happy again! Bill Bodouva best in business!

Bill was a fantastic broker. My husband and I had very specific needs and he was wonderful at working with us to find that perfect property. His negotiating skills are on point and he is very efficient and super responsive at all times.

Thank you Missy and Alex and Congratulations! It was a pleasure guiding you through the First-Time Home Buyer process. I take great pride in knowing I successfully Negotiated your Lowest Purchase Price and Oversaw your Transaction from Property Viewings to Contract to Closing. Please feel free to contact me if you need any assistance with building permits or a Certificate of Occupancy. Bill
Bill's professionalism and knowledge of the entire real estate transaction process is very impressive and hard to come by in a real estate broker. I have worked with and known quite a few brokers and Bill truly stands apart from the crowd.

Matt and Lisa, thanks for your kind recommendation. There were some obstacles and a multiple offer situation. I'm pleased you trusted me and followed my advice, including my mortgage specialist, engineer and attorney. As a result, we closed quickly without incident and you procured the lowest mortgage rate this year. Thank you for taking the time to write this review, if your friends or family need to buy or sell real estate anywhere in the world, please consider forwarding my contact information to them. Welcome to PW, hope to see you around town soon. Bill
D & T: Port Washington, NY Homebuyers10/11/2014
Dear Bill, we know you said to take our time, but we're very appreciative and feel that there's no time like the present!
D and I discussed it and wrote this letter together. You had the answer to all of our questions from the start to the finish and worked above and beyond our greatest expectations! As you stated, statistically, 91% of today's home buyers start their home search on Google, then they select the most user friendly format to search properties and finally, select an agent from that source. We used Zillow, Trulia, Realtor and a few others. The information varied from site to site, but your profile stood out on every site. The feedback you asked us for in the beginning was "what made you select me?" The answer is, it was simple, you had the most recent sales in the past 12 months, most past sales, fourteen 5 star reviews, this will be the fifteenth. We read them all, as you know we were first-time home buyers, (now homeowners), so we did our due diligence and Googled ABR and Buyer Representative for Port Washington, NY and you were Everywhere! We read your advice columns, your blog posts & learned everything thereafter from you.
You know our schedules are extremely busy like yours, but viewing properties in the dark after work was not a deterrent for you. You made time for us, educated us online with properties so when you called us and said "I found your next home, it was just listed today, but you'll have to move very quickly," we knew you did and we both took off from work and met with you 2 hours later at 1pm on Thursday.
You had been right, we loved the house and property immediately. We agreed with you and followed your advice every step of the way. Since you had connected us with Paul Durante your specialist at Wells Fargo two weeks prior we had a preapproval to submit with our offer as well as a mortgage commitment already in the works. This and moving swiftly with terms of 45 days to close was the reason our offer was accepted above other multiple offers.
By 10pm that same night we had an accepted offer, finished the engineer's inspection through your expert, Richard at North Shore Home Inspections. Our mortgage was already in motion and you had e-mailed all of the correspondence to Rich Klein at the Diamond Law Group, again your recommendation before midnight. The next day, Friday at 12pm we signed the contract and the Seller signed it at 5pm. We did as you advised and beat the weekend traffic, when 3 higher bids were presented, but too late, the contract had been signed by us and the sellers; you got the house for us $15,000. dollars below the back-up offers!
You earned our trust early on, so when you told us to just continue living our lives, provide the information that Wells Fargo and Diamond Law Group request and relax, that you'd oversee the entire transaction that it was part of your service we were elated. When our attorney told us that there might be a delay in our closing date because there were 2 open building permits, we called you for guidance. You personally went to the Town of North Hempstead Building Department and worked your magic to close out the 2 open building permits that week.
This is the first document I have written to anyone from my new home and we wanted it to be to you. I could go on, but you asked for a brief recommendation, so thank you so much for being our Realtor for life and new friend. We look forward to raising our children in the Port Washington School system like you raised yours; hopefully ours will earn scholarships as well!
Thank you Bill, you are the most professional Realtor/businessperson either of us have dealt with, bar none. As our buyer's representative, you represented us as first-time homebuyers, crafted and negotiated an incredible offer and subsequent deal and personally oversaw each step of our transaction as our transaction coordinator, you really should charge extra for that service. Thank You:-) D&T
Bill was recommended to me by a friend of mine who works in real estate in another location. I have been extremely pleased with this recommendation.
Bill has been very responsive. Always gets back to me very quickly whenever I have questions and has been on top of everything along the way. Furthermore he led the negotiations with the other side and we wound up at a very good price. Bill has delivered exemplary service all the way through from representing me at negotiations to coordinating the transaction. I feel like I've had the upper hand throughout all of this and that is testament to the job that Bill has done in keeping me comfortable and informed and supported.
Couldn't recommend Bill highly enough. If you want a top notch real estate professional, he is your go to.

Michael, thank you very much for taking the time to acknowledge and appreciate the specific details of the service I was happy to provide to you. Your new home is absolutely beautiful, I wish you and Lindsay the best of times in it. If there's ever anything I can do for you, your family or friends, locally, nationally or internationally, please don't hesitate to contact me. My best, Bill.
I have had numerous experiences with real estate agents over the past thirty years; Bill is in a class all his own. In addition to being exceptionally knowledgeable of the local housing market he very knowledgeable of all the component systems that comprise a house, HVAC, plumbing, electrical etc. He has a alert but calm manner that inspires confidence with all parties to a real estate transaction. He is well groomed, sharply dressed and makes people feel like they are speaking with a friend.
Bill immediately stood out when my husband and I were evaluating real estate agents. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area we were looking in, understood what we were looking for and went the extra mile to get the house we were hoping to purchase, but didn't think we'd be able to. I'm very thankful for his hard work and highly recommend him to anyone searching for a home.
