Some Client Reviews



We had the pleasure of working with Bill as first time buyers and then later as first time sellers.

Bill's knowledge of the process, the players and area continuously impressed us, and his calm and cool while

thorough and attentive approach kept us at ease during what could have been a much more stressful process.

Bill was incredibly helpful with all details large and small, going out of his way to help us on multiple occasions.

Thanks to Bill our house was in escrow less than two weeks after listing

followed by a smooth escrow and closing.

I highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for a residential broker on the Monterey Peninsula.

We first met Bill as part of purchasing our home in Carmel-By-The-Sea.

Bill was easy and pleasant to work with from the start.

He listened and was attentive to our questions, and providing solid council throughout the process.

His local knowledge was very helpful to us as well as we were new to the area.

Thanks Bill!

Scott & Robbyn L.,  Purchase - Carmel 2015




Bill is a great real estate broker and advisor.

From the beginning to the end he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

He really helped guide me through the short sale process, which was very stressful.

Steve Choulos, Purchase & Sale - Carmel 2010, 2014




I met Bill at an open house he was hosting in Carmel Valley.

My wife and I were very impressed with his

demeanor and knowledge during that initial meeting and decided we would contact him about our home

search in Pacific Grove; that decision was with out a doubt the best real estate decision we have made.

Bill was extremely responsive and listened closely to our requests.

When Bill contacted us about potential properties they were in line with our criteria rather than just

something that happened to be on the market. Having dealt with several other realtors

it was extremely refreshing to not have to wade through properties that had no relevance to our search.

At no time during our house hunting process did we feel pressured nor unimportant.

Bill was great at helping us understand the offer process and the impact of the current local market conditions

but was happy to present any offer we wanted to make.

When it came to the actual purchasing process Bill made it as painless as possible.

He helped guide us through the entire process and went as far as to come to the new home and

help trim back plants in preparation for the home being tented.

I can not imagine finding the same level of commitment elsewhere.

I can recommend Bill with absolutely zero reservation.

If ever we are looking for a home again on the Monterey Peninsula our first call will be to Bill.

I did not know Bill Carmichael personally until I was referred by a person that had

recently completed a successful transaction with him.

I was facing a short-sale situation, and he told me he had a lot of

recent experience with them, so listed my home with him.

Throughout the months of negotiations with buyers and lenders, Bill proved to be a great guy to have on my side.

He was able to navigate the difficult road of getting a short sale completed,

and was always considerately keeping me informed of the process.

I will now use Bill Carmichael for all future real estate needs, and recommend him highly

to others (which I have done a lot of lately)!

He is professional, energetic, and personable.
