Recently my wife and I had the pleasure of again working with Bill Hollingshead on our real estate transactions. I say again because our first experience with Bill, selling our first house and then purchasing another, was facilitated so well through Bill, we knew we would use him again as our agent. When it came time to sell our most recent home in New Westminster we did not hesitate to contact Bill Hollingshead. Bill’s knowledge of local trends, current points of interest of potential purchasers, as well as an outstanding network of other successful realtors and purchasers, shows his professionalism and outstanding abilities. For our most recent sale he not only put together a package of relevant and up to date real estate data and information, that was both easy to read as well as interpret, but he also took the time to go over the finer points of his research and how he felt these points would affect our sale. Selling and purchasing a home can be a very stressful time and one of the best ways to alleviate stress during this process is to be informed and communicated with. On this front Bill scores top marks. There was not a moment where my wife and I did not know what feedback Bill was getting about our home and what potential purchasers were saying. I always felt that I could contact Bill at any point with a concern or just to chat about how the process was going along. He never shied away from communicating with me and always took the time to follow up on any questions or concerns. The last house we sold in New Westminster was our last home in British Columbia. My wife and I decided it was time to see other parts of Canada and this is an example of what makes Bill Hollingshead
such a dedicated agent that one can trust. Though we were moving out of province we asked Bill if he could help us out with any leads in the province to which we were headed. Without hesitation Bill assisted us with finding a reputable realtor and helped to put the parts in motion for our future/current purchase. Due to interprovincial licensing restrictions he did not make one cent off of this interaction, but as a result of his professionalism and respect for his clients he did not hesitate to help us out. That is
what truly sets him apart. Whether in New Westminster, Vancouver or any of the other municipalities in the Lower Mainland one
needs a professional with the skills and abilities to get the job done. My wife and I went through two sales and one purchase in BC with Bill, and as stated, he helped facilitate our purchase out of province.
Without a doubt he would be the first person we would contact in the event we were to move back to the Lower Mainland. I encourage anyone looking to sell or purchase to sign up with Bill as your first endeavour in the process. You will be in good hands and with Bill’s assistance you will end up exactly where you want to be.
Our experience with Bill was exactly what we’d hope the sale of our home was going to be. Bill was approachable and available to us with whatever questions or concerns we had with our sale. He prepared us as to what we could look forward to, gave us great advice, and followed through on what our expectations were. Right from the start, whether it was his Social Media approach, or the more traditional path – such as the gorgeous photography of our home and stunning flyers …Bill got the word out about the upcoming sale and built up a lot of excitement in the area. We had great open houses because Bill is so professional and knows what he’s doing!
We were thrilled with having chosen Bill as our realtor and recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat! He’s professional, conscientious and he stays on point and focused which we found to be refreshing in the real estate environment of the Lower Mainland. Our successful sale was due to our choice in a successful realtor. Well done Bill!

After trying to sell my two bedroom condo with another realtor, for the better part of two years, I enlisted Bill to sell my condo, on the recommendation of a neighbor. From the very start, I was impressed with Bill's professionalism and responsiveness. He always answered my queries in a prompt manner, and he was able to offer sound advice. I certainly appreciated the fact that he never pressured me to make a decision; instead, he presented the facts, and I then made my own choice. I was so pleased that Bill was able to get a large amount of traffic in to view my suite, due to his social media savvy; the frequent showings ultimately resulted in a successful sale and a very happy customer. I have already recommended Bill to many of my friends, and I will certainly use Bill as a realtor for all of my future real estate needs. If you want a realtor who is going to work hard for you to find a property or sell your home, Bill is the one!.

Billy listened to what I was wanting in my first home purchase. He prepped me for what was needed in buying a home. When the time came and I found the perfect place I knew exactly what to expect. Very smooth process!
Chris North Burnaby
Bill was great to work with. He took the time to work with me every step of the way. I never felt pressured to lower my price for a quick sale. In the end my place had some unique challenges to sell due to some pending special assessments. Bill never lost his positivity about the sale. He must have shown it to over 100 people during that time. We ended up getting the sale for the top price per square foot in the complex. I owe that to Bill and his hands on approach to marketing and his patience with the process. Highly recommend, would definitely use Bill again in the future.

I have no hesitation recommending Bill Hollingshead as a realtor. Thanks to his advice and assistance our townhome sold within days of listing; $1,000 less than asking. And this in a very difficult real estate market in Vancouver. Bill was particularly good at providing advice on pricing; providing the staging of the home, which was empty; negotiating with the purchaser's realtor; and advising us on negotiating the offer. He is very easy to work with, and knowledgeable about how real estate transactions work.

Bill Hollingshead has been our realtor for approximately 2 months. During that time he has served us in a very professional manner and with the utmost courtesy. Any questions we had were answered promptly and in a clear, concise fashion. Bill was ready when called upon for property showings, offering reliable advice, anticipating our needs and providing us a 'vision into the future' throughout our property search. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to friends and family and we will certainly rely upon his expertise in any future real estate endeavours.

Jim and Kelly Mount Pleasant West Vancouver
When we decided to move, our mortgage broker recommended Bill to help us find our new home in the city. It was an excellent recommendation; Bill was extremely helpful throughout the entire process of our move. He is professional, friendly, proactive, knowledgeable and he has excellent customer service skills. We went through a major downsize from a large home in the suburbs to the condominium we purchased in Mount Pleasant. We were new to the city and its’ neighborhoods and to the Vancouver market as well. Bill was instrumental in orienting us with the various neighborhoods we were considering. We worked with Bill for over five months to find our new home. He was always available to take our calls, respond to our emails and to view properties, and he took the initiative on many occasions to call us and check in on the sale of our home and to suggest properties to view. He offered excellent advice regarding condominium living, including building location, amenities and strata considerations. Bill was there every step of the way through the contract, endless paperwork, including strata minutes and by-laws, and the building inspection as well. I would not hesitate to work with Bill again in the future and I will definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Bill was always professional and available any time I had any questions or concerns. He made me feel very comfortable and confident going forward with my largest purchase.
Due to Bill’s strong negotiating skills I believe that I received incredible value for the home I purchased.
