Dear Bill,

Thanks for all you have done to make our real estate relationship a satisfying one. Here are some thoughts I have on the subject!                   

Bill provided me with excellent service in all aspects of the recent sale of my home. His performance resulted in the sale of my home in THREE DAYS. Prior to this experience Bill provided me with professional service in my purchase of a home that met my requirements. Bill is an outstanding realtor with the know how and care to successfully provide a satisfied  customer. He makes you his priority and has an attitude that makes him successful towards his work. I highly recommend him.                                                       

Best regards,

To whom it may concern:

“Realtor Bill Babcock assisted us in our first home purchase. Having a kind and supportive realtor really helps in the process, especially when you’ve never done it before. 

Bill explained the details of the home buying experience thoroughly and worked as an intermediary with our financing company, always keeping things running smoothly. He was able to accommodate our schedule and was a calming presence when the big decisions had to be made. 

We are so grateful for Bill’s hard work and dedication to his clients. Without his positive spirit and guidance, we might never have made it into our own home. Thanks, Bill!”

To whom it may concern:

I am writing to give Bill Babcock my highest recommendation. Bill possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent REALTOR®: he knows the market extremely well; he is most diligent, responsive, and very patient. Bill is both professional and personable. He clearly takes pride in doing a good job and loves what he does.

In my particular case as a buyer of a home, it was a long road due to my circumstances to find a home I could both afford and that was suitable for my needs. Bill found it. He never let me give up and his positive attitude kept me inspired throughout the process. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Bill or being anything but happy in choosing to work with him.

With much gratitude,

Susan and I worked with Bill Babcock for over 2 years to find a property in Santa Cruz. We were looking for a home or condominium in a particular area in Santa Cruz and our requirements were many and very specific.

Bill provided potential properties on an almost daily basis for our review and inspection. Due to our busy schedule, he always made himself available to discuss listings (often late in the evening) and meet us to inspect the homes or condos. He even knocked on doors in areas we were interested in to explore properties that were not yet on the market.

After many open houses and private inspections, he found the exact property we were looking for in the exact location and met our long list of ‘must haves’. We could not be more pleased with the results of his efforts.

I highly recommend Bill Babcock of Keller Williams Realty Santa Cruz, for your Real Estate needs. You can be sure that Bill will work tirelessly on your behalf to not only find your dream home, but make it a reality.

I recently had the pleasure of working with William Babcock from Keller Williams on a transaction. Bill was the listing agent and I was the buyer’s agent. Bill handled the entire selling process with extensive knowledge, skill and compassion. He understands that buying and selling a home is not only a financial transaction but it is also a personal and emotional transaction. He interfaced extremely well with me, my buyer and the sellers, keeping everyone in the loop as the deal progressed. My buyers loan approval was a little troublesome. These issues normally would have possibly caused the sellers to back out but Bill’s interpersonal skills allowed him to effectively calm the sellers fears and set the proper expectations. The transaction was a huge success on both sides with both buyer & sellers feeling extremely satisfied.  If you are looking for an agent with the utmost integrity, compassion and skill please seek out William Babcock.

“I met Bill Babcock totally by accident. I was showing my friend an area of Aptos that he had never seen and there was an open house on the street we were driving through. We stopped and Bill was showing the house. I really didn’t want to look at it as I knew it was not in my budget nor the area I wanted to be in. Bill finished with another couple and stated that I was the only person to come through the house with a frown. He immediately put me at ease and we started laughing and commenting about all the things I loved about the house but just knew it wasn’t for me. Bill politely got me to open up and find out what I wanted. He suggested that he could certainly help me find my dream home. Bill tirelessly spent weekend after weekend showing me different properties, he guided me through different options; Complete homes, Fixer Uppers, even introducing me to Manufactured custom homes and looking at property.

Bill went above and beyond what I would expect. He was always thinking ahead, trying to figure out what I really wanted, what I could really afford, what was really my dream home.

Finally we found it. After what seemed like months and months and properties after property we found the perfect property. I asked him to go back and back just to make sure and always no matter how busy he found time to give me one more look, just to make sure. He researched the property, the comps, the neighborhood and everything possible about the house. Since I recently just lost my husband to an illness, he was such a helpful voice of reason. He was always just a phone call away to help or to bounce a question off of.

I had such a nice time with Bill’s positive attitude that after my purchase I missed our weekly outings. I had a great time looking at houses and when I finally found one, Bill was great at making sure all the T’s were crossed and the I’s were dotted. His attention to detail was fantastic. His focus the entire time was for me, what was right and with an attitude that said that no matter what we’d find the right place. We did thanks so much to Bill.

Not only has Bill become my Realtor, but I consider him a new friend now that I’m back in the Santa Cruz area. If I’m ever nuts enough to move again, I’ll be calling. And once I’m done with all my construction I hope taco outings will happen on a regular basis.

“My Realtor, Bill Babcock, asked me if I would write up my experience as a first time home purchaser.  I am a professional nurse who grew up within Santa Cruz County and have successfully purchased my first home here within a Live Oak neighborhood.

As a first time home buyer I wasn’t sure what to expect at first. I knew the basics of what I wanted in a home like how many beds and baths, but to start I was pretty open to anything. I was very excited to start looking at homes and pick the place I wanted to start a new chapter of my life. As I looked at more and more homes I started to really figure out what I wanted. After looking at many houses that seemed almost perfect there would be at one thing though that was a deal breaker. I tried to look past cosmetic things that I knew could easily be changed to what I wanted and started to really focus on things that couldn’t be changed like the location and the general floor plan. We finally found a home in a location and floor plan we loved even though it needed a lot of updating of cosmetics. I was able to look past things that could be changed that maybe other people would not be able to. We put our offer in and luckily it was accepted. Once the offer was accepted the next big thing was all the inspections. At times it all seemed very overwhelming and I questioned myself if I was making the right decision but I just looked at the big picture and knew it would all be worth it. Once I had the keys in my hand and escrow had closed we began to make the house our home.

Hope this helps you as a first time home buyer. Thank you Bill Babcock, my agent.”
