We are first time home buyers and a friend of ours recommended Bill. We started by visiting open houses with Bill and he was very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of each based on our needs. These visits helped us refine and prioritize our requirements. Bill understood our needs and would give us a prioritized list of potential houses that we could visit. He patiently answered all our questions, some of which were very basic. It was a long process for us and it took almost 8 months to find the house that we really liked. Bill was very patient and never pushed us to make any hasty decision. He would answer our calls any time and responded to emails promptly. Once we finalized the house, Bill walked us through the complete process and was with us in every step of the way till closing. It was a pleasure working with Bill. Thank you very much Bill! You have helped us find our dream home!

I would just like to say thank you to my husband Bill for his patience and dedication in finding us our new home in Boston. After looking for more than 2 years we finally found the perfect place. There were many homes we looked at that he knew were a good bargain, but he never pressured me to make a quick decision. He gave me the time to look at many properties and familiarize myself with the different areas of the city. His attention to detail made the process from offer to close stress free. While you may view this as a biased review, I assure you he treats all his customers with the same level of care he treats his family.

Our experience with Bill was excellent! From the beginning he has listened and reassured us of our concerns through every step of the buying process. As a first time home buyer, I really felt he was looking out for our best interest. He recommended a terrific contact person who is part of great lending team. He helped us pick the right home by breaking down what the total (mortgage, condo fee, and property tax) payment would be monthly. He provided us with valuable information on what we needed to be aware of such as lead paint (we have a 2 year old). He expressed his opinions in areas we did not fully understand its importance, but listening to him helped us get our home for an even lower price than we had originally agreed to pay. I like his professionalism. He made himself available to respond to our early morning, day, and night emails and calls. He knew how to communicate and get the information he needed from the sellerís agent. Throughout the whole process he stayed informed with all parties involved and he helped us stay calm with humor! I highly recommend Bill, especially to first time home buyers! As a result of our happiness we will definitely refer Bill to our friends, family, and anyone who is looking to buy! Thank you Bill.

Bill could not have been more knowledgeable about fulfilling our housing needs and more accommodating at helping us get into the perfect home. It was a real pleasure to work with someone whose primary interest was to find us what we wanted, rather than trying to get us into something that was easy for him. My wife and I really appreciated his help in navigating the myriad of paperwork needed to close the deal within our short time frame and to answer all of our questions, stupid or not. Thank you for being the consummate professional and for all of your help.

Bill was a great realtor. He was very knowledgeable of the area and was able to understand exactly what I was looking to buy. As a first time home buyer he was able to teach me exactly how the process went, and I never once felt that I didn't understand what the next steps would be. I feel that he was definitley dedicated to finding a home that worked for me as opposed to just any home. I would recommend Bill to anyone.

Bill was great. Very responsive and knowledgeable. My girlfriend is using Bill and feels the same. I already referred two friends to Bill as a result of how happy I was with his service.

We did not find Bill several years back otherwise we would have bought a house long back. We had a great experience in the journey of our house hunt. In simple word to say we are admired by Billís professionalism and attitude. I believe by nature Bill is very friendly. If anyone looking for a new house I strongly recommend Bill is the right person to get the job done.

I still remember when we approached Zip reality for our first home visit, when we had very little knowledge on home search. Bill has guided us in each and every step very patiently answering all our questions. He did not let us compromise on what we needed at any point. Thank you bill for your wonderful support and being there for us and making our dream come true!!! Also Thanks for educating us in every step of our home search and showing us where we can look for basic to high level information about what to look when searching for a property.!

I am writing this in praise of Bill Farino. My husband and I began our search for a new home with little knowledge about the process and with a tight deadline to find a place before my husband had to return to school. Bill was amazing. He walked us through all the steps of the process and was available for showing us various properties. Every place he showed us fit into our needs, we never once felt like we were just being shown places willy-nilly. Having Bill as our agent felt like having a trusted family member representing us. Bill helped my husband and I to find the perfect home for us in only four weeks. I never imagined the process could happen so smoothly and quickly. I would recommend Bill to anyone searching for a new home, and especially to first-time home buyers. We are so appreciative for all that Bill has done for us.

Bill helped us choose our first home, which took us several months, but we never felt rushed by him or pushed toward something we don't like. He listened, proposed options, and gave valuable advice on every property we went to see with him. He was available any time we needed, often sending updates late at night or early in the morning. Once we found what we were looking for, Bill suggested the winning tactics that allowed us to drop the price sufficiently and get the place we wanted. And besides all this, Bill is very pleasant to work and talk with, and our 2 year old bonded to him instantly. I would definitely recommend Bill as an agent for anyone in need of great quality service.

Bill was great, I have had some not so great experiences with a realtor before where I always felt pressure to move ahead. Not at all with Bill he still stuck by us even though we looked at about 25 houses all over the place. It took 5 months! But now we are in a place where we are happy and I could always count on Bill's advice.
