    Bill was so great to work with! My husband and I moved into Charleston having no idea what area we wanted to live in, and Bill was very patient with us as he told us the pros and cons of each area. Because of this we were able to pinpoint the perfect town for us. We went with a new build home and Bill came to every single meeting we had with the builder, including the design studio. He was great at remembering the little things that we mentioned we would like and was sure to bring them up during the design studio meeting when we forgot. He also had great recommendations on how to keep our budget in check while designing the house. We were very pleased with Bill's experience and knowledge during the whole process!

    Bill Olsen was thorough, accessible, professional, and well informed with regards the real estate market in the greater Charleston area. He sold our house in a timely manner and he also showed us houses for sale in our area. We are moving out of state but if we ever return to live here we will definitely call him to be our realtor.

    Was a pleasure working with Bill from beginning to end in this process. If I needed to sell, or even buy a house, in the Charleston area in the future, I would definitely give Bill a call.

    This was my first home purchase. Bill was very helpful throughout my entire home buying process. He was courteous and responsive to all of my questions. He scheduled and oversaw all of the required inspections and was able to quickly produce or revise contract documents. I recommend his service to anyone planning to buy or sell a home.

    This was by far my best experience buying a new home. Bill was quick to respond to any questions. He was on top of anything that may hold up the process, working with all parties during the purchase.

    Bill is awesome!!! Being overseas and a first time home buyer, it may be difficult finding a home and trusting the realitor, but from the beginning I felt confident that he had our best interests at hand. He answered all my questions and went above and beyond for me and my family! Even after closing, he continues to help us! I would definitely recommend him to a fri be or family member, buying or selling. We are incredibly greatful, thank you Bill!

    Pete gave Bill 5 stars out of 5
    I was referred to Bill from a friends friend who used to do real estate part-time. I emailed Bill and he responded shortly afterwards and wanted to set up a meeting to discuss my plans and see if we would be a good fit. We met and he went step by step over each phase of the process, which was great for me as a first time buyer. He was extremely good at explaining things clearly for me and patiently answered any of my questions since buying a home was new to me. I felt much more comfortable after the meeting and decided that I wanted Bill to be my realtor. I started looking for houses and Bill also sent me updates on new ones on the market that I would be interested in. Once I had a few that I liked he set up times for us to go view. What I liked about this was that Bill did not try to push any houses on me. In fact at a few of them he pointed out things that he could tell made me hesitant about and reinforced my perspective. He also was extremely flexible with the showings and made everything easy for my part. Within a week I found a home that I really liked and he set up a time with the seller to talk about a purchase. He helped me all the way and made sure everything was in order with all the various parties involved. After a quick three months I ended up closing on the house. It would have been much sooner, but the house was still in construction when we first met with the seller. I am now writing this from my brand new house and I could not be happier with my purchase and with Bills expertise and guidance through the entire process. I would 100% recommend Bill to any of my family or friends. If you are looking for an agent you found one! Thanks Bill!!!

    We have bought and sold several homes over the years, however the customer service, professionalism and support that Bill Olson provided was better than we ever experienced. Mr. Olson went above and beyond during the process of preparing our home to get on the market and helping us get an offer within less than a week of listing the property and although we were out of the state he keep us informed every step of the way. Words do not come close expressing the gratitude and level of satisfaction that we have for Bill Olson.

    Bill was knowledgeable, available, helpful and attentive from the start! We walked us through the process step by step and never made us feel pressured. We were very nervous as first time home buyers to begin this process, but Bill worked hard to answer all our questions thoroughly and promptly. We are thrilled with our home purchase, and will definitely refer Bill to friends in need of an agent. Not a single complaint!

    Laura gave Bill 5 stars out of 5
    Bill was wonderful to work with, we were moving to the Charleston area from a different state and were first time home buyers. Bill did an excellent job with helping us find the best location for us and finding an incredible first home. We were on a tight schedule to come out and actually look at homes and ended up seeing 12 houses in one day! I give him props for being so organized and for having to put up with my family for a 12 hour day of going in and out of numerous homes. We are so glad with the home the Bill found us and couldn't be any happier.

    Bill was a great resource. He provided us with all the tools imaginable to research homes and make the best decision possible. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and he always took the time to reach out to us and assist us throughout the entire process. I enjoyed working with him and couldn't be happier with our home. He made the process both simple and fun.

    If I could rate Bill higher than 5 stars, I would. In a nutshell, Bill is THE best realtor anyone could hope for. The military often throws my family curveballs. Being able to adapt is something we have grown accustomed to. Be it short notice or no notice, we never know what to expect. Bill Olson was the most helpful, cooperative, and dedicated person I've ever worked with. His ability to get things done quickly and efficiently still amazes me. Bill helped my wife and I purchase our first home, and it could not have been a better experience. I highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for a new home. He was a true blessing to have met and worked with and I cannot speak highly enough of him. The process was simple and fast, and he was available 24/7 to answer any of my questions. Bill worked with the seller, their realtor, my bank, and the office who performed the closing, taking a lot of stress off me, and saving me countless hours of searching and scrambling. Were I to sell this house in the future, the first call I would make would be to Bill Olson. I have no desire to work with anyone else. He makes it easy, fun, and an overall enjoyable experience.

    I wish I could give Bill 10 STARS! As first time home buyers and a military family we knew that finding the right house would be a task. Bill is associated with the USAA real estate program which is how we initially started working together. My husband and I were so impressed with how professional and caring he was right from the start. He took the time to get to know us and everything we were looking for in a house. When we found our dream house Bill was very attentive to helping us make the right offer and understanding the process. Right from the start it was very tough negotiations! The negotiations didn't stop there. We were pressed with a very unique situation (due to error on sellers disclosure) which lead to an almost 3 month transaction and the house almost falling through (this house was not a short sale or foreclosure). Bill was great about communicating the entire time and keeping us in the loop. There were times when the odds were against us and we thought for sure that we would have to say good bye to our dream home but Bills dedication and commitment never stopped. He exhausted every resource he had trying to come up with a solution. Bills ability to think outside the box lead to a solution. This is were Bills negotiation skills were really put to the test! Needless to say, we walked away with an even better deal! I strongly believe that if it wasn't for Bill and all his innovative thinking and hard work we would not be in this house right now! Even after closing on the house he still follows up with us to see how our projects are coming along! It is easy to see that Bill is very passionate about what he does and cares for his clients! Thanks again Bill!!!!!

    Bill was very attentive to what we told him we were looking for in a home. He took what we said and helped make it reality. He was very quick at responding to our questions and concerns. When it was time to put a bid on our home he made it very easy to go thru the process. At our home inspection he also walked us thru what the main points we needed to have addressed. Bill will be who we will refer our family and friends .
