Get to Know Bill Carroll

 In 2002 Bill Carroll was looking for a new start. After serving twenty years in the New York City Fire Department and retiring as a ranking officer, the thought resting on his laurels was not the least bit appealing.

At the suggestion of his wife Donna Bill considered a career in real estate. She reminded him that they had always seemed to root out great values in the purchases they had made for the family, and indeed how much he enjoyed the hunt for just the right property, and then the excitement of the ensuing negotiation and closing of the deal.

All well and good thought Bill, but how would experience serving in the FDNY add value to a sales job in real estate? What could I bring to the table to help people achieve the dream of purchasing a home of their own? Bill listed the qualities and traits that were essential in not only surviving but excelling in a very dangerous occupation.

Ability to;

·        Communicatelisten thoughtfully, speak intelligently

·        Think outside the box- it’s rarely easy, so work it out and create a positive solution

·        Do the right thing- consider others’ needs before your own-

·        Create and follow a plan- essential for long term success

·        Do everything you say you will do, then do a little more

Bill listed the traits that became so ingrained over the years that anything less would just not do

·        Loyalty-to the highest degree

·        Ethical-never less than 100%

·        Teamwork- work as a team, win as a team

·        Trustworthiness- always no matter the outcome

It seems a little obvious now, but it’s the above lists that have guided and shaped Bill’s Real Estate Career Path into becoming one of The East End of Long Island’s most trusted and sought after brokers. Many years and successful transactions later, Bill continues to receive the highest recommendations from his buyers and seller clients alike.

 It is because Bill and his team prefer to work “for” clients instead of “with” customers that Bill's tagline at The Corcoran Group has become “In Real Estate, Representation is Everything”.

 

 

Certifications

 

"“In Real Estate, Representation Is Everything”.  Bill Carroll coined that phrase a few years back after deciding it is a much more rewarding experience working “for” clients instead of “with” customers, and it has been the tagline for him at The Corcoran Group ever since. But what exactly does it mean? In a nutshell it means you get all the information, not just some. It means the broker or agent working on your behalf is willing to put your real estate needs ahead of their own ambitions and compensation. It means your agent has enough strength in their convictions to talk you out of a deal that’s not right for you. It means Undivided Loyalty, Full Disclosure, Complete Confidentiality and more. It means receiving the highest level of service possible.  Whether you’re selling or buying, don’t you deserve to have an agent that’s working in your best interest? Of course you do. Because “In Real Estate, Representation Is Everything”.

Riverhead Chris McHugh 12/2016 It was a pleasure working with Bill, as first time home buyers there was much to learn. Bill was courteous, prompt and always willing to share his wealth of knowledge. We had many questions which he patiently answered and helped walk us through the process. We looked at a lot of houses before settling and never once felt pressured. While looking we always had a good time and plenty of laughs as a bonus. By the end of the process I considered Bill a friend in addition to my broker and would highly recommend him.

Bill went above and beyond for us until we found our perfect home. He's the best - would recommend him in a second!

Bill was the consummate professional. He was spot on with the market and his recommendations were exactly what I needed to get the house sold. He went FAR above and beyond what you would expect from a relator. I was not living near the property and Bill went over and used his chainsaw to take care of large braches that came down during a storm. WOW! That is just one of the many times he came to my rescue. On top of everything else Bill is an honest and hard working person. You will not find a better relator.

Bill was amazing to deal with. I had never dealt with a “buyers broker” before, and will highly recommend Bill's services to anyone in the market for a new home. Bill is a great asset to have on your side. He's even willing to climb fences, just ask. Chris and Debbie S. Wading River NY 12/2015

I have known Bill for many years as a neighbor and friend. I am also employed working in a Govt. building dept. where i am in touch with and have come to know many real estate agents on the east end. Yet when i decided finally to sell my house there was no question as to who i would contact., because Bill far surpasses the level of knowledge and commitment i could have ever hoped to obtain from any other real estate agent. From start to finish it was a truly unbeilevable experience, My husband and I contacted Bill because we had finally (after many years of changing our minds) decided to take the plunge and get into a condo. He started by showing us different places and we fell in love with one particular place. Unfortunately, we had not even put our house up and so in our minds buying our dream home would never come to fruition. but guess what? we listed with Bill and he gave us a reasonable assesment , we listed the house, and within three weeks it sold. Incredibly, as soon as we took the offer we were able to make an offer on the house that we loved and we got it. There was a glitz, however, and it was that we had to be out of our house within a month. How to you pack up and leave 22 years of "stuff" in a months time,, and where do you go when you know you wont be able to get into the new home in time. Once again Bill came through and hooked us up with a friend of his who rented us a beautiful furnished home for a very good price. In addition, he helped move some of our furniture because he had a pickup truck and we had no way to get the big stuff we needed moved out. Througout the whole process he went above and beyond my best expectations. Anytime i called or texted him wth questions, concerns , etc. he got back to me immediately and we worked through any issues. Bill was there from beginnng to end. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with him. If you are looking for an honest, reliable, knowledgeable real estate agent who will give you 100% and more of his time and expertise, you should contact Bill

We LOVE Bill!!! Bill may be the most genuine person you'll ever meet! He is professional, punctual, honest and comes with years of knowledge and experience! Bill helped my husband and I sell our home and got us asking price for it! He also helped us get into our new home. We knew, going into this process, that it could be a tedious and trying one. Bill was there every step of the way to answer any questions we had and offer his advice when solicited and without being pushy. Even when we looked at other homes, he was forthright with the information, but also gave us space to look around and discuss our options. He listened and took into account what we were looking for in a new home and made sure to show us home that met our criteria and stayed within our budget. His advice on staging our home helped tremendously when it came time to show. I cannot say enough great things about Bill! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent. He's the best!!!

Bill has shown my family and me the utmost respect and professionalism during the difficult process of selling my mother's house. His talent for his field of work, along with his willingness to help on a professional and personal level went above and beyond our expectations. He meets people where they are and works hard for them. I'd recommend Bill to my family and my closest friends.

We found Bill to be unique among real estate agents. He was very knowledgeable and his experience was key in helping us purchase our new home. So much so, that we almost certainly would not have been successful without his help. If you are looking for help in buying a new home in this area, you should definitely give him a call.

Dear Bill, The purpose of this letter is to thank you for making the recent sale of my Mother=in-law’s East Quogue Condominium so easy for my wife and I. We also want to let you know how much we appreciate all of your hard work. We knew early on that we were in good hands based on your not wanting to miss an opportunity to hold an open house, and your attention to detail. Your guidance, punctual updates, and recommendations were paramount in making this a quick sale of less than three months from listing to closing, which far exceeded our expectations. Also based on your knowledge of the marketplace we feel very confident that we were able to achieve the maximum return on the final sale price. Again we would like to say thank you for making this sale quick, painless, and profitable.I don’t think a client can ask for any more than that! Best Regards,

Bill was a great real estate agent. Working as a buyer's broker he was able to help us while giving us the confidence that he was working in our best interest. We were first time home buyers and having someone with Bill's knowledge and negotiating skills was very helpful. We were able to negotiate a very good price below the list price. Another thing that I was very impressed by was Bill's ability to find listing that matched our needs. You could immediately tell that Bill was the type of agent who understood his client. I think he would be able to just as readily fulfill the needs of a first time home buyer as someone looking to purchase a second vacation home. Bill went above and beyond his responsibilities as an agent to find us the right home and negotiate the purchase. I have and will recommend Bill to anyone I know looking to purchase a home.

My husband and I worked with Bill at Hampton One Real Estate Group for approximately 2 years to find the “perfect house” in which to raise our family. My husband and I are very particular people and although we didn’t have an exact house or location in mind, we knew we would know that “perfect house” when we found it. Bill was the most patient and professional agent I have ever met. He took us to every house in Suffolk County that we wanted to see (and it was A LOT of houses). Although other agents might just give up on a client after seeing so many houses, Bill assured us that he was in it for the long haul with us. Each time we went into a house that was not the “perfect” house, Bill asked what it was about the house that we did not like so that he could narrow down the pool of houses for us. And after 2 years, that “Perfect House” finally came on the market. Bill was the first to recognize that this would be “THE” house for us. As soon as we toured this house we both agreed that it was indeed THE house for us. Had it not been for Bill’s incredible patience and personal attention to our needs and wants, we never would have found our “Perfect House”. I had worked with other agents in the past and I have to admit my experience with Hampton One Real Estate is one that I have never had with any other agency. This Agency is the BEST in their field and I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a new house! You won’t find this kind of personal attention anywhere else.

My wife and I could never have taken on the incredible task of finding our first home with the guiding hands of Bill Carroll. His attitude, experience, and knowledge made us feel confident and safe every step of the way. He was incredibly receptive to our input on what we were looking for and went above and beyond in making sure we found the perfect home for the perfect price. I cannot recommend Bill highly enough.

Bill, Without your guidance, patience, insight and knowledge, we would not have found our house. You are everything and more one could hope for in a friend and advisor. To call you a real estate agent (even a Buyer’s Broker) does not do justice to you as a person and professional. We know this is not good bye and we will continue to rely on your expertise and generosity in the years ahead. We are glad you came into our lives. Eric, Amy, Madden and Brady

To whom it may concern, I had the pleasure of working with Bill Carroll during a difficult sale process shortly after the death of my father in November 2010. The winter of 2010-2011 was a difficult one economically, especially in terms of real estate and home sales. Unfortunately, my father’s estate was largely held in his Remsenburg, New York property; we needed to sell the home in order to settle his affairs as quickly as possible. I live in Connecticut and my brother lives in Georgia. As busy professionals with families, the challenges involved to disposition my father’s estate across long distances seemed enormous. We knew we would need an exceptional real estate agent. Bill stepped into our lives on the referral of one of my father’s neighbors. She spoke of Bill very highly in reference to a real estate transaction she was working on. I am very pleased I listened to her recommendation. For us, Bill organized charitable donations, cleaning, trash removal, lawn care, repairs, painting and countless other tasks necessary to make my father’s house presentable for sale. Once ready, he worked diligently to get us the best possible price in a very difficult market. Despite a depressed housing market, Bill was able to sell the house in 7 or 8 months. In addition, his willingness to manage numerous upkeep and property issues was invaluable to my brother and me, making it possible to minimize our trips to eastern Long Island. Throughout our interactions, Bill maintained his friendly affect and high degree of professionalism. I wholeheartedly recommend Bill as an agent who will work honestly, diligently and tirelessly to complete the best possible real estate transaction for his clients. We had a challenging situation and timeline and Bill was precisely the right individual for our needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information or comments.

Being first-time homebuyers can be a very intimidating task. The task becomes harder when you are a middle class family on Long Island looking for a suitable home in a good school district. It was a long road for us to find the right home for our family. For years we dreamed of owning a home, and when we were finally ready to buy, Bill was there with as much enthusiasm and hope as we had. It was very reassuring to find someone who cared as much about finding the right home as we did. Despite all of our hope, we admittedly fell into despair with the real estate market and we almost gave up. Bill was always patient, genuine and beyond all else, hopeful and encouraging. He stuck with us even when we were losing hope. His patience, real estate savvy and extreme professionalism lead us to the home we enjoy today. Without him, we would still be living in a small apartment, dreaming of a home for our family. As a buyer, having Bill on our side, looking out for our interests was invaluable. Without him we would not be in our wonderful new home today. He helped us reach the “American Dream” and we are very thankful. -Teri & Sean Harling

I highly recommend Bill Carroll to anyone looking to either buy or sell a house in the Westhampton area. He is extremely hard working, has great knowledge of the local market, did a good job of marketing the property in an aweful market, made meaningful staging suggestions and assisted me in preparing the house. His personality is low-key, professional and honest. You won't be disappointed - I certainly am a happy client. 2011

I had the pleasure of both buying and selling properties with the help of Bill. His advice is well thought out and he allows you time to make your own decision. Bill is highly educated about the real estate market, he pays attention to details and provides incredibly attentive service. I was impressed by his negotiation skills when it came to buying my condo- he is kind, prepared, and persuasive while getting the job done, but most of all he wanted what was in my best interest. Bill went far beyond his duties as a realtor to become a trusted friend and advisor throughout the purchase. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone! Robert Hallam

– Several weeks ago we closed on a house on Dune Rd. in Westhampton Dunes. We wanted to take this opportunity to communicate to you how fortunate we feel that we lucked out in finding Bill Carroll as our broker. Bill is thoroughly professional - prompt, responsive, savvy and always glad to try a little harder to make things happen. He definitely made our deal happen! And with a sense of humor. Even past the closing he continues to offer help as we plan to begin the process of fixing, arranging, and moving. In short, Bill is a real pleasure to not only work with, but to know. Sincerely

Dear Bill, Now that we are settled in our new home, we would like to thank you for the long and tireless hours you spent with us not only for buying a new permanent residence in Hampton Bays but also for selling our secondary residence of 38 years. It is very unusual to see someone so dedicated to his profession, so courteous and gracious, to the point that you will remain a dear friend. This year will end well for us thanks to you.

- Dear Bill, We felt it notable to write to you commending you for your work as a real estate agent. Though you were the agent for the seller on the waterfront real estate purchase we recently made, you were equally as caring and concerned to details for us as the purchaser. No questions went unanswered our ignored. You were truly a professional in your field, along with having a genuine and honest concern for both the seller and the purchaser. This is the 4rth home purchase we have made over the years, and it was the best with regard to the good interactions between yourself, our real estate agent, the seller, and ourselves. Issues that did need prompt attention through closing were often resolved by your personal interaction and knowledge. Wishing you the very best in the real estate business,

Dear Bill, It is my pleasure to acknowledge in writing the enormous service you provided to me in selling my house in Shinnecock Hills. What you did was far more than I had expected from a real estate agent which included considerable contracting work to prepare the house and it’s grounds for the Open House you conducted.This was so successful that the house was sold within a very short time for my asking price. Your honest, friendly and open attitude combined with the hard work you put into each and every detail inspires confidence and complete trust, which in my case was rewarded with a successful closing much sooner than I had expected. I will remain grateful for all your efforts on my behalf. Sincerely,
Steve M, Westhampton

- Dear Bill, we want to express our appreciation of your help and the subsequent selling of our summer house on Dune Rd. in Westhampton. Your integrity in all phases of our working relationship was outstanding. We are appreciative of the extra things you did prior to the sale. Your frequent updates as to the success you and the rest of the staff at Coldwell Banker was having with the sale made us comfortable with our choice of real estate broker. We wish you a long and successful business career. It was our pleasure working with you. If you treat others as you have treated us, you will do very well. Best regards,
