In the past two years, I have both sold a house and bought another through Bill. In the first instance, my wife was ill and we needed to move closer to her doctors and family. My daughters called Bill and six weeks later we closed on the sale for our full asking price. I am sorry to say that my lovely wife passed away leaving me at loose ends. I decided that I wanted to move to the lake in Hot Springs. My daughters called Bill again and one month later I was the proud owner of the perfect retirement home on Lake Catherine. Through all of this, Bill never left a single detail unattended. He is the best!
If you want and agent who is ethical, responsive, and funny, use Bill Saunders. Although he was dealing with a flat market, he encouraged us to try various approaches to gain the interest of buyers, and he gave us feedback from those who visited the home. Although we considered renting out and rent to own options, he guided us with very thoughtful advice about the pros and cons of those approaches as well. He also was very proactive on sharing online data with us--how many people looked at the house online, how many people visited in depth on line, and he called every time the house was shown as a result of those viewings. We found his responsiveness to be very refreshing in an age that undervalues customer service!
Not only would we be likely to recommend Bill, we already have.
I had a great deal of insecurity about selling my house - it wasn't the perfect house and I've dealt with some people in the real estate business who weren't exactly on the up-and-up. I am very grateful Bill wasn't one of them. He watched my back, and he became the person that I relied on to let me know what speed bumps were coming up. Then he eased the way for me to deal with them. I couldn't have found a better person to help sell my house. He was easy to contact and very responsive, conscientious, honest, and he really exposed my house to the market. I had a lot more prospective buyers come look at the house than I thought possible, and the house sold much quicker than anticipated. In the future, if I was looking to buy or sell any real estate, Bill would be the first person I would call. I HIGHLY recommend Bill to anyone looking to buy or sell a house
My wife and I cold called Bill back in the spring time considering a move to Hot Springs, Bill was very informative and emailed us several listings after finding out what we were looking for. Even though we were just looking he took the time and effort to show us several houses and treat us just like we were actively looking to purchase at that moment. Our house sold quicker than we had planned and a couple months later we were on the phone with Bill needing a house. He found several new listings to show us, as well as, a re-look at a few of the previous homes. Working with Bill was very easy, he communicates well and is quick to get back with you if needed, he truly made the whole process pain free and I will HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a house in this area. I can say that Bill has become a friend after working with him.
Bill Saunders is a true professional! You will not find a better real estate agent than Bill. My wife was in poor health and we needed to move closer to family for support. Our daughters contacted Bill and, in about six weeks, we closed on the sale of our house. I was caring for my wife and had no time to spend worrying about the details of the sale and closing process. That's when I realized how lucky we were to be working with Bill. He did not let a single detail fall through the cracks. I highly recommend Bill. I am in no way exaggerating Bill's performance. He is that good. Thank you, Bill.
Bill Saunders was totally dependable and very fast in his follow up every time that we contacted him throughout the process of listing and then selling the house. He was completely professional, honest and considerate in his interactions with us. We highly recommend him!
My wife and I chose Bill to work with after reading what others had to say about him, reading what Bill has to say about himself, and then getting in touch for a chat. When we finally met Bill, we were impressed with his philosophy of selling real estate, which is low-key on the sales side, but high energy on the buyer advocacy side. His knowledge of the business and the upbeat, forthright manner in which he presents himself is just what we were looking for in an agent to work with. And we could not have asked for better results, from property showings to closing. If you are an “out of town” buyer, (as we were), do not overlook Bill as the realtor to represent you. It’s always a bit more involved when getting things accomplished from separate cities, and Bill consistently went the extra mile to answer our questions, get things done on our behalf, and bring everything to fruition. We have no doubt it’s the same level of service for his local clients. If you believe, (as Bill does), that realtors do not sell properties; properties sell themselves, I suggest you get in touch with him for a chat. We guarantee, next to the property you purchase, it will be the best real estate decision you’ll make.
Bill recently assisted myself and my wife in buying a second home in the Hot Springs, Ar area. Being buyers from out of town Bill spent countless hours researching homes that would fit our needs and scheduled 10 viewings for 1 day because we were only able to be in town on weekends. He did drive bys and took pictures to send to us coming to town to look at properties. In the end he found us a perfect property and closely helped us all the way to closing as well as staying in touch after the closing just to make sure we did not need anything else. Bill is a top notch real estate agent and I would recomend him to any one looking in the Hot Springs area.
I had the pleasure of working with Bill on my recent purchase. He was incredibly helpful and made sure all the details were handled in a timely manner. This was such a help as we closed on the home in less than 30 days. He continually contacted the banker and selling realtor to make sure all details were completed in a timely manner. His expertise was helpful as we looked at a few houses before deciding on the one we purchased. Even his scheduled vacation was not enough to keep him from being available for the questions I had and following up on the offer and counter-offer. He worked diligently with the home inspection team and was presnt for that allowing me to only show up at completion, then proceeded to walk me through the report and help in recommending suggestions as to what to ask for regarding the inspection. I would gladly recommend Bill in the future as someone you could feel confident in using as your realtor.
About two years ago we wanted to start looking at properties in Hot Springs for a future move to this area. Even though Bill knew we would not be buying for a long period of time, he was willing to take time with us and show us the available places that met our criteria. He patiently cultivated our relationship - totally without pressure - until we were ready to make a purchase. He was very sensitive to our needs and wishes. We greatly appreciated his knowledge of the city's various neighborhoods. In the ensuing two years, Bill became more than our real estate agent - he is now our friend, and we would readily trust him to work with us again.

We found Bill as first time homebuyers. We had zero knowledge of homebuying and really didn't have an idea of just what we wanted. Bill patiently spent several months looking at homes with us, answering questions with us, teaching us, and showing us all the homes we wanted to see. We never felt rushed or pressured or that we were wasting his time. Bill is honest, helpful, knows the area very well, and was able to find a house that met our wants and needs in our budget. I highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for an agent in this area. You will be well served and not disappointed.

We were shopping in Hot Springs, long-distance as we live in Alaska, and Bill was extremely helpful, actually going to houses and taking better pictures than had been posted on MLS, offering good advice, etc. In the end we decided to buy in Hawaii but anyone looking in Hot Springs would be well advised to choose Bill as buyer's agent.
WoW! My husband and I just recently sold our home to move closer to his job. Unfortunately my husbands schedule was changed recently and now we are not sure where and if we want to buy. There was a home that caught my eye and Bills number was on the sign, so I called. He answered immediately and was very upbeat. We talked maybe 10 minutes about what I wanted and could afford. Within an hour he had sent me several pictures of homes, each with a summery of what I would like about it. After everything, my husband informed me that my price range was too high. Nervous because I had changed my mind, I called Bill back to tell him. He didn't even hesitate to tell me it was ok and we will look in my price range. Then because of our uncertainty, I decided to stop looking to buy in Hot Springs. After ALL that, Bill was Still very upbeat and willing to help me if I ever needed it again. I have been in sales a long time and it is hard to impress me, though Bill did the job! I Highly recommend him!

Helped us look at homes..we are still on the hunt. He doesn;t make us feel bad if we can't look at stuff. He is willing to go preview properties and take pictures knowing our crazy schedules. I truly believe he has our best intrest at heart and understand the market in the area!
Bill is very personable and professional realtor. We did enjoy working with him as he was very helpful, patient and placed no pressure on us. Now we consider him a friend instead of our realtor.
Bill was very knowledgable and flexible in everything that we did. With having already looked at around 60 houses before we found Bill, he was very helpful and enthusiastic to help us find our first home. With our busy schedule, and his, he found the time to show us homes. The one we bought we got lost trying to find, but with all of our determination, the next day we found it and fell in love. Bill was a joy to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Very honest and trustworthy man.
Bill is helping me find my forever home and it has been a great journey. Bill is one of those rare salesmen (Agent) who cares about his clients and really listens to us. I have never felt any pressure but did feel he was working in my best interest. We haven't found that special home yet but Bill is always ready with information and alternatives. He is amazingly patient! Work with this guy -- you'll love him.
We could not have asked for a better agent. Bill responded quickly to every communication and was very thorough. He even took dozens of photos of a few houses that my husband and I couldn't go see right away and emailed them to us. He was incredibly knowledgeable of our area and sensitive to our needs. He took the time to really get to know us, find out what made us tick, and help us find the perfect house. I recommended him to my boss, who also used Bill and bought a house 6 months after we did. I continuously recommend him. He's fantastic!
Bill is the best!!! I was so impressed with him, if I ever in the future need the services of a real estate agent, there is no question that Bill will be the one I go to. He is extremely knowledgeable about housing in general, he knows what to look at/what to investigate and is extremely patient, willing to take the time to get you into the house you want, I felt no pressure from him at all to just get me into "any house". You really can't do any better!!!
We had the very difficult situation of trying to shop for and purchase a home while my husband and I were both living in different parts of the state. Mr. Saunders was more than willing to go the extra mile to preview and photograph homes for us to try to help us best utilize our limited time and resources. After puchasing the home he has even contacted us to ensure that we were settling in well. We are. And we love our new home!
Bill was professional and at the same time, light-hearted, which made the whole home-buying process a little less stressful. He was always honest and hard-working in our behalf. We highly recommend him.
