I spent the majority of the buying process outside of the state of Alaska and this team was able to cater to my needs even from a huge distance. They offered a video walk through of the homes I was interested in guided by their own hands. They were able to send me documents to sign electronically. They also gave me great input about the homes we looked at with the goods and bads of what we were seeing.
Bill had very impressive knowledge of the area and he quickly provided ample homes for us to consider after he learned what we were looking for. He always had great advice and skillfully responded to all of our questions. Bill and his assistant Sara Gee kept us informed and helped us with every step of the process. We are very happy with our new home and would strongly recommend Bill Babylon to anyone needing a realtor in the Anchorage area.
They are responsive and easy to work with. We were able to sell both our homes quickly and efficiently during a time of significant stress. We appreciate their efforts and professionalism and the respect they have for the buying and selling process.
A great journey with a great agent! Bill & Team!
They kept us informed on what the market was doing, suggested better houses to look at than some of the ones we were interested in. When we found a house, they kept the communication open which was great since we were living in another state at the time. I would highly recommend them.
Bill was always readily accessible, and his associate Sara Gee was also always on top of things. I would highly recommend Bill because of his real estate expertise, knowledge of our area and easy-going personality. Excellent service, we can't recommend him highly enough.
After several offers the buyer raised their bid and the sale was completed. The process went very well after the bid was accepted. We were able to move the closing date to fit our schedule.
When the first buyer backed out they had already got a second in the queue and ready to go. This proved to be very helpful and speeded things up. They were very aggressive in selling the first few days and that proved to work great."
He went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor and he treated it as if it were his normal protocol. Pleasant, well informed and a great negotiator are a few of his top qualities. I would highly recommend him.
She answered our questions thoroughly and made us feel very well taken care of. She also demonstrated great knowledge of the current housing market. I would recommend this team to a friend!
During the 3 months between listing and contract Bill scheduled and held 3 major open house showings that kept awareness and interest high. I was away about 1/2 of the time the house was on the market and Bill maintained regular contact, along with quick response to questions and needs that arose. In addition, regular visits to the property ensured its integrity and appeal were maintained while vacant
Bill and Sara are incredibly knowledgeable, extremely thorough, organized and have everything covered from start to finish! Bill and Sara are an incredible team and every question (no matter how small!) or concern was immediately dealt with. Even after closing- Bill and Sara have been available for questions and have gone above and beyond to help me get settled. I cannot recommend this real estate team enough. Thank you!
She was my contact throughout the selling process and was very responsive to our questions and provided sound advise on each step from offer to closing. The photos of my house, arranged by Sara and used for Internet marketing were excellent. I had a solid offer within three weeks of listing. I would recommend this team for your future real estate needs.
We would recommend their services very highly. We moved out of state, and Bill was extremely responsive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with throughout the selling process.
If we ever have anyone looking to buy or to sell real estate, we would only direct them to Sarah and Bill! The best Real Estate agents we've ever worked with. Selling our home had been a nightmare up until we hired them. From there they exceeded every expectation! Thank you!
Has been around forever and knows everything about the market. Provides access to great contractors, home photographer, and stager. Prompt to respond and is a great people person. Very patient, detail oriented, and customer oriented. I have done more than one deal with them and they never disappoint. They even took care of our house and checked in on it/staged it while we traveled for vacation. I recommend them to all of my local Alaska friends.
They staged our house as we were moving and did not have much furniture left, house got multiple offers within 48 hours of listing and we were under contract soon after that. Would recommend to anyone needing to buy or sell a house in Alaska.
Needed the title and closing work done quickly and so I called Bill. He has sold my permanent residence in Anchorage, AK. Great to work with. Sensitive to the clients needs.
Bill and Sara are great!!
He was there for us at ever step of the process, from our first conversations about listing our home, to the house prep, to the listing and, finally, through the sale. He was always on time, fully informed and kept us up on the latest news. Bill was always positive and friendly, a welcome smile during our sometimes crazy move. He helped us sell our home, but I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Anchorage area.
He was very responsive and I would highly recommend him for his trustworthy and knowledgeable approach
He was knowledgeable so many things. His assistant Sara was wonderful also, always took time to answer any questions.
Friends referred us to them, and we quickly understood why. We were new to Anchorage, so their experience of being longtime residents and their knowledge of the local market was invaluable and spot on. Their attention to house details that could cost or save us money was excellent. We talked about renovation ideas with them, too, which helped us make some big decisions and narrow down what we were looking for. In the competitive market of Spring 2021, we appreciated their candor on making offers, and also not feeling pressured. Bill and Sara are professionals with integrity, and also made it fun to look at houses together! We ended up with a great house that we are happy with and comfortably settling into!
This is the truth. My husband and I have bought houses in the past and actually have fired 2 R.E agents for doing a bad job but Sara really impressed us both. I have to say it was super nice working with her and if we ever need an agent she will be the one we call!
They made the process of selling our condo so painless and I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you so much!
He prepared a binder full of good information for our initial meeting and has left an excellent and professional impression! Bill also kept me in the loop with all the steps and updates regarding the sale of my home. He also did not have to come with me when I signed the final paperwork, but HE DID!! I appreciated that so much. Thank you, Bill, for helping me sell my home in record time! As a first-time seller, I could not have imagined this going any better! I appreciate all your help and guidance. If you are looking for a real-estate guru, Bill is your man!!
He is extremely responsive and a joy to work with. His colleague Sara Gee does a great job with staging. We couldn't be more pleased.
They covered every detail of the selling process from day one, helped me through the stress of coordinating seller-requested updates while I was away from home, and took the time to advise me whenever I had questions. As a longtime Anchorage resident, Bill’s area knowledge and insights proved exceedingly helpful, and both Bill and Sara were highly responsive to all my needs. With the help of their excellent stager, I had an offer within three days of listing. Words cannot adequately express my gratitude and thanks for their successful efforts in selling my condo and I’d use them again in a heartbeat.
Bill Babylon is true real estate professional. His passion for his line of business is shown by the specialist certifications he holds and by his extensive career experience. He made my corporate relocation a seamless process. He provided me with his honest professional opinion when it came down to selecting homes for viewing and did an excellent job scheduling showings. He was very attentive to the home criteria I provided him with and did a great job recommending homes for my consideration. He always was on time and was very thorough with all the paperwork involved. What could of been a very stressful endeavor for me, Bill helped me navigate the home relocation without the stress I was expecting to undergo. With such a low home inventory in the Anchorage/Wasilla market and our current social dilemma due to Covid-19, Bill went above and beyond to make sure I was able to look at the homes I was considering in a safe efficient manner. I never felt like Bill was just trying to sell me home, rather I always felt Bill was trying to find me the right home. I appreciate Bill's patience with me and I am happy to report that Bill found me the perfect home and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely recommend his services to my friends, family and colleagues.
He's very professional as a real estate agent and put forth much effort into helping us find that house that we had in mind. Sara Gee, another agent working on his team, was right along side keeping us informed on the different aspects of this home search. Bill is very experienced in his field and provided us with plenty of helpful advice not only for the house search but also valuable information as newcomers to Anchorage! We would have no hesitation to direct others to him looking for a potential house.
He was professional, enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, and a good communicator and negotiator. Our home had been on the market for several months. He took over the listing and the home was sold and closed within two and a half months. He and his assistant Sara were always helpful and on top of every situation that came up. We give them a 10 out of 10!
We have never had such competent real estate professionals before!
Both have my highest recommendation. After having bad experiences with real estate agents in the past, Bill was a most welcome change. He was always on top of things, and made the confusing & complex process of selling our house a manageable, and even pleasant experience. Many times Bill went well above the call of his duties, to provide us with the very best representation and service. We highly respected and valued the helpful options he offered from time to time. Although no doubt representing a number of others, Bill always made us think that we were his exclusive clients.
When the first buyer backed out they had already got a second in the queue and ready to go. This proved to be very helpful and speeded things up. They were very aggressive in selling the first few days and that proved to work great.
His recommendation for a pre-sale inspection was a great move and his advice on what to fix/repaid prior to listing made the sales process go quickly and smoothly. Very knowledgeable about pricing a house to move it quickly but get a great deal. Will definitely be using Bill and team again!
His assistant Sara was also very helpful in the process.
I’d highly recommend him to others.
He suggested good contacts that he has to ensure the process went smoothly as possible. Both Bill and his associate Sara Gee are excellent.
She is outstanding. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends. She made the entire process so easy. Anything we needed to get done she provided us easy access to, (e.g. phone numbers, web links, documents, etc.). She reminded us of items we needed to get done by certain dates and made sure everything was followed through. Sara is very personable, organized, and punctual. She helped us sell our home within a few weeks and purchase another. We met her when we stopped to look at the first home of many that she ended up showing us. She then proceeded to help us sell our existing home and find another smaller place just right for us. So glad we met her when we did.
Always available to us for questions, great follow up, extreme patience, great connections to contractors/vendors in the area, and just overall a high functioning team. We are staying put in our new home for a long while, but will definitely recommend them again to friends and family!
Very good with monitoring closing item schedule and keeping the process happening as planned. Very attentive when needed for showings and questions.
They were both very responsive, professional, patient, and gave excellent advice. They were available on both nights and weekends, and often went out of their way to meet with us or call us at convenient times to us. Our recent home purchase went very smoothly, and I can only credit our team, both Bill and Sara, and the excellent loan officer they recommended. I would not hesitate to recommend them, and if we are in need to buy/sell in the future, I will not hesitate to call them. We had an excellent experience, and we appreciated their help and knowledge greatly.
As first time home buyers and a new resident to Alaska, Bill was so knowledgeable and helpful for our process. He made sure that we knew everything about the process to prepare us to buy our house. Sara and Bill were super responsive and quick to answer any questions or set up appointments to see houses. Highly recommended!!
His knowledge, understanding of the process of moving such a huge distance, and patience as we dealt with the sticker shock of Alaska housing prices guided us through to the best possible choice. Later, as we had questions about some remodeling we were considering, Bill advised us on the best choices both for our lifestyle and for resale down the line. Now, ten year later, we are unfortunately moving out of Alaska. We never considered listing our house with anyone else! Should we ever have the opportunity to buy real estate in Alaska again, we will definitely count on Bill, even if we have to drag him out of retirement.
Our go to realtor!
We were very happy with her and Bill efforts in attracting interest in the lot and staying on top of any issues that could affect the sale. Sara was efficient and on top of the market--pro-active in contacting local developers during the period that they may be considering procuring lots. We were also impressed by her competence in taking care of all sale requirement and working for a timely closing of the deal .
Willing to take extra effort to sale the house. Makes himself available as needed and provides recommendations.
He KNOWS his business, he knows the Anchorage housing market, he knows anyone you might need in housing and/or home repair/ maintenance, and he keeps the friendship and great customer service going YEARS after his commission has been paid. Just a really great guy all around. I highly recommend him if you need a realtor.
From this I felt comfortable setting a listing price. The agent (Sara) kept me informed on the number of potential buyers visiting the condo and their comments. During the selling negotiations I was satisfied with recommended strategy and advice on accepting the offers and counter. Sara provided recommendations on services that could address repairs that were required by the buyer. I got a fair price from the recommended businesses. The closing went smoothly and there were no surprises in amounts.
He was professional and attentive and knows the market inside and out.
She made the process of marketing and getting asking price for our home easy. She also had a great command of the local market.
We wouldn’t dream of using anyone else. He knew exactly how to showcase the features of our homes to their best advantage, provided us with any advice or support we needed, and knew how to play our local housing market well. When looking for our new homes, he made sure that we noted not only the good aspects but also any potential problems. He has been working in this area for a long time and is able to network you to the best person for any home related work or need you may have. He is a joy to work with and takes the time to get to know you as a family so he can help you find your right fit.
We received multiple offers in a very short time. I would recommend them to anyone selling real estate in Alaska. Both are always available, very kind, respectful, knowledgeable and ready to answer your questions regarding real estate. Their network of people related to the business is vast and facilitates the process enormously.
They know the market. They know what to look for in a house or condo. They know the best inspectors and have good working relationships with other businesses you may need. They work hard for you.
Sara was extremely wonderful.
We had a great experience with Bill and Sara. They knew the market and our neighborhood comps well. Would highly recommend them!
Very professional and probably the nicest guy you will ever meet!
As a seller that needed to leave town early I was concerned about things getting done on my house so it could be sold. Bill took the lead and had things done correctly. I can't say enough good things about his knowledge of the area and how it helped sell my house.
Thank you Bill
