A true gentleman in the real estate industry, Bill is an iconic fixture in the City of Manningham, selling homes and changing people’s lives, since 1976. As a young fellow, Bill was keen to have a career in architecture, as he was and is still in awe of unusual properties. He loves the uniqueness in quality architecture, and prides himself on marketing premier properties of distinction that tell a story. Bill has the kind of experience you can’t buy. He’s been through all the ups and downs of the real estate industry, seen the district go from market gardens to the variety of homes it has today. He loves that there is so much choice in the City of Manningham, from flats to family homes, and apartments to acreage – something for everyone. Bill leaves a lasting impression on his clients. His reputation has been built on loyalty, trust and his positive nature. He’s a quiet achiever, a successful auctioneer and has given back to the community with his charity auctions and his voluntary work with Rotary. Happily married and an adoring father and grandfather, Bill enjoys travelling overseas and spending time on his 10 acres in beautiful Wonga Park.
To face selling my home of 54 years and to search for a new place to live after the death of my husband was traumatic. I am so grateful that Bill came along and from the word go at a very difficult time due to Covid-19 was my agent. He worked tirelessly in order to succeed. Sensing into my needs regarding a new home Bill was able to find the ideal place for me in which I can now relax and enjoy for the rest of my life.
We have owned three homes in nearly 50 years. Bill Thompson has sold every one of them. That might suggest that Bill is old, but he brings experience, trust and quite some wisdom with it. This recent sale is the only one of those three that we initiated the contact with Bill, which was because we know that he will do the best that he possibly can for his clients. He has been in the Manningham area so long that he knows myriads of people and most of the properties as well. We have been delighted with our experience with Bill as our agent.
Bill was a very nice person to deal with and I had a long conversation with him about property prices and suburbs. I found Bill very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to deal with.
Jodi and her colleague Bill Thompson were extremely professional, friendly, communicative and effective in securing the sale of our subdivided lot in difficult economic and pre-election times. Their wise advice to 'go to market' was proven correct, despite our reservations. At no stage were they pressuring us in any way and were always available to answer queries. The whole exercise was relatively stress free and their skills and demeanour gave us great confidence. A job very well done in all respects.
Very enjoyable. Bill displayed wonderful knowledge of the market and was at all time very professional and polite.
