I don't think I can put into words how amazing Bill is. All I can tell you is that I have bought and sold many homes but buying and selling with Bill was unlike any other transaction. It was so smooth and easy (at least on my end! ha!). I never had to remind him of anything - he knew what I  needed and how to get it done. It really is as if he is a mind reader and knows exactly how to handle every personality and situation - but always sincere and compassionate. I can't thank Bill enough for landing me my forever home!...P.S. there was multiple offers and Bill wrote up an offer that was accepted within minutes. I still can't believe this house is mine!!! ADDITIONAL NOTE: Bill also sold my house before we could even list it. It was a cash offer (6 figures above asking) with no repairs or inspections. Closed in less than 3 weeks. COMPLETELY AMAZING...Thank you Bill, I'm forever your client!

We decided to call Bill based on his experience in the neighborhood and because our parents were familiar with him. He completely went above and beyond representing us as sellers. He gave us a detailed list of what to do to get prepared. He also went over in detail, on what to expect during the sale process. We had a trip planned that was going to take place while we had the house listed and Bill made sure to keep us updated, met with inspectors & retro-fitters, negotiated on our behalf with the buyers and more. He was absolutely fantastic. We sold for above asking and within a week with a 45 day escrow. I would never use another realtor other than Bill, and I would recommend him to family and friends. He knows this business and will try absolutely everything in his power to get you exactly what you want. Especially (but not only) if you are buying/selling in the San Fernando Valley.

After meeting with several realtors to represent us on the sale of our "home" of 27 years, we knew Bill was the realtor who would represent our interests, sell our home for the best price and be honest with us on what we realistically could expect. Bill came to our initial meeting with information  on the sale process, comps in the area and a host of additional information to ensure we fully understood the sale process. Bill walked us through each step and ensured we understood all that was about to take place once we listed our home. We listened to his expertise on what work we needed/should do before listing our home and he explained what we could expect if we decided not to do any of the repairs. We opted to do some the work and the results were astounding. Once the house was listed things moved quicker than we expected. In our meeting, Bill asked "are you ready to move, because once the home is listed, it will be sold". Once the offers came in, Bill's advice in negotiating the final price and handling the details of the escrow made the closing effortless. We highly recommend Bill to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home.

Selling, buying, and moving can be a very stressful and unnerving experience. However, Bill's experience, knowledge, and negotiating skills were beyond our expectations and so impressive that we now recommend him to anyone who wants to sell or buy a home! When Bill sold our home he guided us  through the process of setting the right contingencies because we also needed to find a new home. He then asked the right questions to narrow down the search for the right type of home and easily made the time for our family to visit several potential homes. When he showed us our current home, we knew we wanted to make an offer right away and he immediately responded, got the paperwork completed, and put his exceptional negotiation skills to work! We were afraid that other offers were going to be accepted on this beautiful home on a large lot, but Bill worked his magic! He facilitated everything seamlessly and with much confidence from us. A true gem in the real estate business!

We had known of Bill Barkley in our neighborhood for 20 years or more. When it came time to sell, he was our first interview. In short , he hit it out of the park. His presentation was professional-including analyses of comparable sales, state of the market in our neighborhood, and recommended  pricing, etc. He guided us in choosing between the pros and cons of various offers....always keeping our interests as a first priority. Once we accepted an offer, Bill thoroughly vetted the prospective buyers, again protecting our interests. He had many contacts in the trades that enabled us to make necessary repairs....all of whom did outstanding work. Bill guided us thru the escrow process and closing. He's OUTSTANDING!!!

I listed my home for sale after my children grew up and moved away. I decided it was time to downsize. Bill Barkley was the listing agent when i bought my home. As the years went by I noticed Bill's signs all over my neighborhood and how quickly he sold homes. I called him and he was a pleasure  since day one, and I knew I could trust him completely, and even agreed to list for more than I thought my home was worth. To my surprise I received multiple offers within 3 days of listing. Bill walked me through the whole process and we closed within 30 days. Bill made the whole process seem effortless. His knowledge, expertise, negotiation skills and responsiveness are truly amazing. I will use him for all real estate needs, whether buying or selling because he is definitely a master at his trade.
