"Bill was low key, but thorough and organized, and committed to getting fair market value for the property. From listing to sale, our expectations were met in less than two weeks. We placed our trust in Bill's professionalism and expertise, and he did not disappoint. His dedication, excellent inter-personal and communication skills contribute to his success as a realtor. Based on our experience we would not hesitate to recommend him to others."

"Very thorough and detailed data of real estate activity during the time of my listing. Extremely courteous and considerate from the very first meeting. Thanks Bill!"
"It was a pleasure having Bill as my real estate agent. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patient. As first time home buyers we appreciated that Bill took the time to explain us the real estate process and gave us helpful suggestions to navigate through it."
"My husband and I worked with Bill Keay in Spring of 2017 when the market was going crazy. When we contacted Bill, he immediately helped us to understand our home value, and market values in the area we wished to move into. He informed our thinking about how to prepare our home for sale, he recommended homes for us to consider, and he went with us to see those that we were serious about. Every meeting was informative, easy, and respectful of our needs. His knowledge of real estate also protected us from misguided thinking. Bill’s professionalism makes him very safe to work with. He was thorough and conscientious in the negotiation in both selling and buying transactions. In that busy sellers’ market Bill helped us to sell our property at its highest value and he supported our instincts around a quick decision buy. Bill continues to be an important source of information for our real estate questions."
"My experience with Bill as my real estate agent has been nothing but positive. He helped us sell our townhouse at the beginning of 2009. Everything went very quick. It was handled extremely professionally and speedily. Bill recommended we do a few minor upgrades to get the place ready for sale and these suggestions paid off greatly. We sold a lot quicker than we thought and got almost what we were asking for (list price). We would definitely recommend Bill and use him again in the future. Bill Keay exceeded my expectations of a real estate agent for the sale of my property and the purchase of another."
"Bill is the most honest and ethical person I have ever met. He helps us stay realistic about what we were going to get for the money we had to spend. Bill did not try and get us to buy above what we had. Other agents we had worked with tried to up sell us on houses that were out of our range. Bill listened to what we wanted and showed us houses that fit what we needed. He made sure he knew the neighbourhoods we looked into and how appropriate they were for a young family."
"Bill helped us through the complete process and was helpful with each challenge we had. Bill was able to find our new home taking into consideration our special needs. Finding the best suitable location, we thank him often."
"Bill provided us with great service throughout the entire time we were real estate investors and not just during the purchase and sale times. He understood our needs, responded quickly, was thorough in his research and analysis, and was most pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"Bill Keay exceeded my expectations of a real estate agent for the sale of my property and the purchase of another.
During the entire sale cycle of both, the communication that Bill provided ensured a stress-free transaction. Whenever I had a question, Bill answered it in a very timely-manner. Bill would pay unexpected visiting's to my home just to ensure I felt at ease.
In just a few days on the market, Bill was able to sell my home at 99% of the list price, despite a tough economic period. I received multiple offers in just days, one of which had terms and conditions that were too good to turn-down. The purchase cycle of my new home (with my fiancée) was seamless and I was able to buy it at a reasonable price. During both transactions, Bill's friendliness and hard-work ethic ensured a stress-free transaction within my busy work schedule.
I highly recommend Bill Keay to represent anyone in the sale and purchase of a property."
"Bill exceeded all of our expectations and it was a pleasure to work with him. He listened to our needs and was very knowledgeable."

"Sebastian and I would like to thank you for all your assistance in helping us to purchase our first investment property. Making that first purchase can be scary and confusing, however your patience and your continued support throughout the entire process was greatly appreciated.
Throughout my life I have been involved with many real estate agents, however, no agent has even come close to providing the personalized and timely service which you provided to Sebastian and I over the last year. Accordingly, Sebastian and I look forward to using your services to purchase our next investment property in the short term."
- Sincerely, Ryan Middleton
"It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for our REALTOR®, Bill Keay.
We met Bill through REIN (Real Estate Investment Network). Sharing similar interests and goals, we chose him to assist us with our first investment property. Bill was very thorough and always willing to go the distance to answer all of our questions and concerns.
The process of our first purchase from the offer right through to the closing was relatively pain-free and Bill was a huge factor in this!
We would highly recommend Bill and look forward to working with him in the near future."

"Thanks for the CMA. As a RE Investor for 11 years, I have never received a CMA before. This information is fantastic! The information you have been provided is spectacular, first class, and shows your dedication to the professionalism to our business. You emulate the REIN ideals of integrity, honesty, win/win and helping others. Thank you so much for all your help."
"Bill is great! Always kept me in the loop and looked after anything that came up. Checked back all the time to make sure everything was good."

"We recently had taken on the decision to sell our rental property we had for 4-5 years in Brantford. It was a great idea to buy this property while our son was going to college there but it came to the time we wanted to sell it when our son finished his schooling.
We got a hold of Bill Keay from RE/MAX and he was great. We met with him only to find out how friendly and determined he was to help us out with the sale of our property. He told us what should be done to help make the sale go quickly and he checked out all the surrounding areas to compare prices. We did what needed to be done and the sale sign went up quickly.
Needless to say, our property sold within a few days and we got what we were hoping for.
Would we recommend Bill again? Most definitely.
Thanks Bill for all your hard work and determination to help us out."

“Bill is an outstanding realtor and we would highly recommend his services to anyone in the market to purchase a house. In particular we appreciated his prompt and proactive communication. Throughout the process of buying our new home, Bill was meticulous in passing on key information and was quick to respond to our queries and requests. He has excellent knowledge of the market and the buying/selling process and was a great coach in our endeavour to find a home. Last, Bill has strong negotiating skills, and was able to lend a calm and controlled approach to presenting offers during the negotiating phase of our purchase. He is personable, approachable, patient and honest, and for these reasons we would recommend him as a Realtor, and indeed, would use him again ourselves.”
"Bill has been outstanding in helping me obtain the property that I currently have. He did more work than the actual realtor who listed the property. He really went to bat for me in all the aspects of the transaction. His professionalism was outstanding in regards to all the details involved. Bill was very knowledgeable about houses, problems pertaining to older properties, rural properties with septic systems and other pitfalls that an owner could experience. He did point out problems and areas needing attention. Bill has extremely good, impeccable manners and is very conscious not to say anything off-putting. Although this may be viewed as an asset in most realtors, Bill should perhaps learn to speak a little freer and not worry as much in saying something that the client may not like. Sometimes, brutal honesty can be a source of endearment, and I am sure many clients may appreciate it. It is a difficult balancing act, but I am sure Bill would master this skill, and be an even better realtor than he already is."
