Bill is a true professional; extremely knowledgeable, understanding and very approachable. He consistently demonstrated excellent interpersonal, communication and organizational skills whenever we talked with him. When we texted or called with a question or concern, Bill would always promptly respond. I would not hesitate to recommend Bill to any of my family or friends who are looking to sell or purchase property in the GTA. In fact, I myself reached out to Bill 2 weeks ago to have a preliminary discussion about a new condo listing in the building where I reside in Aurora; when I decide to purchase, he will be representing me. Thank you again, Bill, for guiding my sisters and I throughout the stressful months of preparing for, and selling my mother's much-loved Millwood Road condo: You helped to relieve so many of our worries throughout the process, and we are truly grateful.
I am a co-executor of my mother's estate along with my 2 sisters. From February to April 2023 we had the privilege of working with Bill Schraeder to sell our mother's Life Lease condo in Leaside. From our first conversations and meetings, we knew that we were in very capable hands! Clearly, Bill is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of both selling, and acquiring real estate, and his in-depth experience in dealing with the specifics of Life Lease properties was invaluable to us all. He clearly outlined all of the steps we had to take for our upcoming listing, and provided us with a complete history of sales over the past 6 years in the building as well as data on pre and post-Covid condo sales in the area. Additionally, he showed us recent real estate sales, facts and trends for the GTA. All of this helped to inform our decisions as we moved through the weeks in advance of the sale. Most importantly, Bill guided us in setting a realistic list price for our mother's condo unit. As there was some pre-list interest in our unit, we opted to list exclusively with Bill for a 2 week period prior to going to a full MLS listing. On the first few days of the exclusive listing there were a number of showings, which resulted in multiple offers being presented. Bill skillfully led us through the process of considering all offers, and within 96 hours of the initial listing, we received a firm offer of purchase on the unit, which was well over our asking price!

"Bill was so helpful with the sale of my Mom's condo and in the search for a place for our daughter. He met us as soon as we found a place we wanted to see and followed up with the sales process and lawyer promptly. Bill is easygoing, friendly and knowledgeable. I would happily recommend his services."

"It was a pleasure to work with Bill Schrader, real estate agent, who helped me sell a friend's condo for whom I was the executor of her estate. Bill was very helpful, and informative, and walked me through each step of the process. He made himself available to explain things and answer any of my questions, and informed me each time there was a showing and each time an offer was made. The process was quick and effortless on my part. I appreciated Bill's professionalism, knowledge, easy communication, and respectfulness. I highly recommend using his services for selling or buying a condo, especially in the senior's market."

We can't thank you enough for helping us get our beautiful new home here at Bethel Green. We simply didn't want to move far from our home of 35 years. This was the right decision or us."

I was extremely happy with how you handled leasing the unit after my father moved into the nurding home back in 2008. Should I find myself needing to tenant the unit, you'll be hearing from me."
“Bill helped us every step of the way and helped us remain positive throughout our search for our new place. I would definitely recommend contacting Bill for all your real estate needs, as he is very knowledgeable, respectful, and fun throughout the process. We would use Bill for our next purchase! Thank you Bill!”
Thank you very much for all that you have done for us in the sale of our house and the purchase of the unit at Leaside Gate. We have appreciated your professional advice and guidance, and your patience and sensitivity in dealing with us."

“What a joyous man to work with, great work personality which every realtor should possess. Bill is the real deal when it comes to securing a great deal buying or leasing.

You work MAGIC in real estates and I will recommend you to all my business associate, friends and family.”
“It was a pleasure working with Bill! He took the time to understand what we were looking for in a unit and neighbourhood, and truly helped make the process an easy one for us. We're loving our new home, and have Bill to thank for that.”
“He is the best sales rep I have ever dealt with, very professional and fast action. The whole process literally was less than a week. I was very impressed and I will definitely recommend him for my other friends and family.”

"Bill was wonderful to work with. He got us the apartment we wanted in a timely fashion and worked with the tenant to get it painted when we were unhappy with the condition it was going to be given to us. Would recommend. Thanks for all your help and efforts Bill!"

"We found Bill online, not expecting too much. As artists and devoted ‘weirdo’s, we have had plenty of negative real estate experiences - agents talking down to us, literally calling us kids (we are almost 50!), judging what we could/could not afford, openly commenting on our appearances and so on. Additionally, we had a tight timeframe, a tiny budget - and were far enough out of town that we couldn’t even come for viewings. Bill was entirely different than what we had formerly experienced. Patient, knowledgeable, friendly, non-judgemental …he made us feel totally comfortable within minutes of meeting. Not only did we find a place in our budget, and within our short timeframe, but we even felt like we were dealing with a friend. AND WE BOUGHT OUR NEW HOME SIGHT UNSEEN! Now, that’s trust! Bill took the time to understand us and what we needed & he did not let us down. We both agree that in the 20 years we share of buying and selling homes, Bill was the best agent we ever had. Absolutely satisfied with our experience! Thanks Bill!!"

"Bill put in the time to help us find a great place. He kept us in mind and didn’t try to get a quick rental just for his cut. I will recommend Bill to my friends."
- Sandy W.
"Bill was extremely helpful in finding a place for me and my friend. He was always quick to answer all my questions throughout the process. Additionally, I liked that he picked up the phone to call me to explain the next steps after signing. He was very easy to work with and enthusiastic. I will be recommending him to my friends and family."
- Mackenzie C.
"Working with Bill has been an absolute pleasure. From his willingness to go above and beyond to answer any questions I may have, to making sure the process and next steps were clear the entire way by providing specific instructions and setting clear expectations. Bill has proven to be a professional and an expert in his field. I would definitely recommend Bill to anyone who is looking to work with someone who is focused on great customer service, as they will be in great hands!"

“Bill is by far one of the best agents I've worked with. Very personable and professional with quick response times. Thank you for finding me the perfect home!”

“I had lived in the same house for over 20 years. As life changed, I decided to move into a condo. I had no idea where to begin. I knew I wanted to be closer to my office downtown and that I wanted something near the waterfront. I had anticipated a long and tiresome search, however, that wasn’t the case. Bill was immediately in tune with my preferences and needs. He knew about the buildings, the neighbourhoods and the general tenant profiles. He helped me find the right location at the right price by diligently monitoring rental inventory as it came online. He accommodated my schedule and requests throughout the process. I would recommend Bill. It only for his professionalism, but also for his kind and responsive manner.”
