Best Real Estate Experience EVER!

• Will Bateson is the finest, most knowledgeable real estate professional I have ever used. Short story - He sold my house for $126k over asking, with NO contingencies and a 28 day escrow. (And in case you're thinking he set the opening price too low, the same model house (but newly remodeled!) at the same starting price one street over sold for $40k less.) Will really knows what he is doing. Long story - Will walked me through the entire process; from start to finish I was never surprised or unaware of what was happening or unsure of what the next steps were going to be. As an example, we had an open house on a Sunday and the offer close day/time was Wednesday at 4. He made sure I knew that there probably weren't going to be offers before Wednesday, but not to worry as everyone typically waits until the last minute to submit offers, just like on Ebay. He was right, the offers came pouring in Wednesday afternoon as he promised. Our termite inspector found $14.5k in damages, Will negotiated no contingencies. I could not have asked for a better agent or real estate experience. This was easily the smoothest transaction I have ever been part of. – Dave and Linda Siudzinski, Livermore

My Realtor's Better Than Your Realtor!

• Facts: Will Bateson was referred to me by a friend of mine, who just sold their home in San Jose for $120,000 over the asking price, with multiple offers. My home sold for 71,000 over the asking price, multiple offers, no contingency in 4 days. I feel Will's greatest strength is in his negotiation skills. Although I know other realtors in the area, I feel no one could have done a better job. Process: The home I was selling had the original kitchen and baths from the 70's. Will was very helpful in guiding me with updates that would be helpful to the home sale. I replaced a carpet in the bedroom, 2 floors in the baths, new front landscaping needed to be done due to the drought. He made it clear to the buyer's agent that the house was for sale "as is", although he did not list it this way, so the buyer had the ability to get the financing they needed. Will also recommended staging the house. Will's strategy worked out very well for me. On day 3, I was very nervous, no offers yet. Will explained to me that similar to ebay, no one puts in an offer until the last minute. He was correct. All the offers came in at the last minute and all over asking price. Thanks Will. – Gloria Malone, San Jose

Tracy Real Estate

• The guy is a master. He anticipated my every need, took care of things without bothering me with all the rigamarole, and made the process of selling my home seem effortless. I then bought a condo in Florida, and the real estate agents there are clueless, they made me spend unnecessary money, they gave me bad advice, and acted like they were passive advisors whose job was only to remind me to do all the legwork that, in California, Will Bateson did for me. Thanks, again, Will. – Michael Gage, Tracy

Livermore Realtor who will Fight for You!

• Will Bateson is the best! He was very patient, reassuring and confident we would sell our home while dealing with a nightmare HOA which made our home fall in and out of escrow 3x. He even marched to the HOA office with me - an angry pregnant lady at the time ;) , and my two wild toddlers to light a fire under their behinds to get us the proper paperwork we were due and he did all the talking for me along with my loud toddlers haha. He even carried our loaded stroller up the flight of stairs (with the help of another nice man) because who doesn’t have elevators?! Will was very easy to work with despite our not so pleasant predicament with our lousy HOA and did whatever he could do to help our home sell in a timely fashion without compromising what we thought our home was worth. He even helped us get rid of a few things we couldn’t fit into the moving truck last minute and extra trash which we were incredibly grateful for as we were moving across California that night. I would choose Will again in a heartbeat for our family’s buying/selling needs and would recommend him highly to all my family and friends! - Mark and Melissa Scott, Livermore

Alternative to Redfin Livermore

Will served as our agent during a recent home purchase. He offers an excellent alternative to Redfin. We appreciated that Will listened to our requirements and was not pushy. He will provide his input, but respects that decisions must be made by his clients. - Mehul Patel

Selling My Parents' Home with Will of Sidewalk Homes

When my parents both passed in the fall, we were faced with the daunting task of selling their home. We needed a realtor; Will was recommended by our lawyer handling my parents’ estate. My sisters and I interviewed Will and hired him on the spot. We were impressed with his knowledge and expertise of the present housing market. My parents’ house sold in 6 days and over the asking price. Escrow closed in 3 weeks. Will handled all the inspections, took care of all the details regarding our home, and responded to all my texts in a timely manner. He even helped us move some of our furniture! If I had to do it all over again, I would still hire Will Bateson and I would highly recommend him to a friend or relative or anyone looking for a realtor to sell their home. - Roberta Bandy

Working with Will Gave us Peace of Mind

• We strongly recommend (5 Stars) Will Bateson. Will’s knowledge of the real estate market in the Bay Area was so important in creating a comfort zone for this first time seller. His understanding of pricing, where the market is and what’s your true property value. His acumen of all the in’s and out’s in a market that creates anxiety for first-time buyers or sellers was outstanding. His personality and professionalism was able to keep us calm in stressful situations, anybody that can lift my wife’s spirits is alright with me. His knowledge kept us from making bad/poor decisions. End result, he was able to sell our home within days of open house, (twice) at 100% original asking price and Market value. If you are looking to sell or buying a home in the Bay Area and you need an honest professional person to talk to, call Will Bateson. – Terry and Anita Jackson, Livermore

Selling Our Home Was Easy with Will!

• Will Bateson is our "go to" resource when advice and service are needed for real estate transactions. My sister, who lives in Rhode Island, and I jointly owned a home in Livermore. When we decided to sell, Will had two clients to please; I knew Will quite well and didn't consider another realtor. My sister, who had never met him, trusted my judgement. When it came to the closing details, my sister had many questions which I could not address. Will called her several times and clarified each and every question she had regarding the differing real estate laws between California and Rhode Island. He couldn't have been more helpful with this coast to coast transaction! Sharon and Vaughn Draggoo, Livermore

5 Star Zillow Review

Will Bateson of Sidewalk Homes recently represented us in the selling a rental property in Livermore, Ca. He had a buyer he was working with and ultimately represented both parties. I was very comfortable working with Will, since about a year ago my son-in-law listed a house in Lodi, Ca. with him and that whole experience couldn’t have gone smoother. Well, so I thought. This Livermore transaction went extremely well. Will had everyone on the same page from day one, and was on top of every detail before we even thought there was a detail. The escrow closed very quickly (within about 25 days). I understand the buyers were thrilled but probably not as much as us. The sale of the property could not have gone better. I appreciate Will’s professionalism and his calm demeanor these attributes along with his ability to “work out a good deal” for everybody makes him an exceptional agent.. I have thanked him a number of times in person but would like to thank him one last time – Thank you Will!!. Cassie & Trevor Patterson
