We would like to thank you for the wonderful service as our Realtor on the listing and sale of our home at 9 Ocelot
Trail, Laguna Vista Texas.
We started out our sales process by looking over all the Realtor's in the area and working the list down to two
leading candidates. Both you and the other Realtor meet with us in our home and looked over our property. We
asked both for a comparative market analysis and marketing plan. You gave us a written detailed comparative
analysis and showed us your marketing plan. The other Realtor just called me on the cell phone and gave me a
suggested price and said the price was so low because we were on a busy street. We thought that was odd
since they sold a neighbor a home on the same street describing the great benefit of being on that street being so
close to the clubhouse. Their marketing plan was that they were number one in sales in the area. Finally the
suggested listing price was $40,000 less from the other Realtor. You told us that marketing the house at the right
price was very important to a timely sale. We chose you as our listing agent because we thought your
presentation was better and offered us a better opportunity to obtain a reasonable price for our home.
Within four days we had a written offer. Our advice on the negotiations with the buyer were very timely and helpful.
Within a few days we had a written sale and added all our furniture and golf cart to the deal at a separate price. In
the end we got a fair price for all the property and closed in three weeks.
Your assistance with the inspection process was greatly appreciated. The buyer hired the most detailed inspector
in the valley. Your advice helped us keep on track throughout the process. There were two items on the
inspection list we contracted for when we left town before the closing date. You let the contractors into the house
and made sure the work was done to the satisfaction of the buyer before closing. When the buyer tried to add a
few small items to be repaired after the inspection and just before closing, you handled our reply of no in a
The closing went on time and with no problems. In all we are impressed with your professionalism and the entire
service. The extra $40,000 from the sale due to your advice was just the sweetener any seller would appreciate.
Best of luck in the future and we could not recommend your real estate company any higher to anyone looking for
a listing agent.

Bill was our agent for the pre-construction purchase of our home and later sold our home when we moved to another state. He was a great watchdog over the builder during construction since we were not there and sold the home in less than 2 weeks when we moved. You could not find a better agent in the area
Bill is very knowledgeable in the existing real estate market in the South Padre Island area. He directed us to the properties that most fulfilled our needs free of sales pressure. When we found the property that we wanted Bill negotiated the price to our benefit and stayed we us through the closing. Bill is very personable and remains available to answer questions and give advice when needed.
Bill is the best that I have dealt with in over 30 years of buying/selling homes. He knows his market and he utilizes very effective strategies to maximize the value for his clients. He was individually responsible for me to be able to buy what we wanted and at an extremely good value. He works harder than his competition and he has the experience to make a difference.
We had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to see when we asked Bill to show us some homes in Laguna Vista. Before looking at any homes we sat down with Bill and talked about about what we were looking for and where we were interested. Next, he made the appointments for the homes we wanted to see plus one other that he thought we might be interested in. Before looking at any homes Bill gave us a tour of the SPI Golf Community, and answered our questions about the area. The additional home that Bill showed us was absolutely beautiful, and a very good deal. We were very tempted to buy it, but we decided we wanted something a little smaller. We ended up buying the home that my wife was most excited about. During the home search process, Bill was very low pressure, and showed us exactly what we wanted to see. He listened to what we wanted, and came up with exactly the right places to look at. The negotiation process went very smoothly, and we settled on an offer that made everyone happy. After the negotiation and contract process, Bill continued to be very helpful and responsive to our many questions. We would not hesitate to use him again, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in Laguna Vista / South Padre area.
Our purchase was the most seamless transaction we have ever experienced...all due to the expertise of Bill Bussard. Exemplary, the competent demeanor utilized by Bill through showings, re-showings, prompt attention to our questions, (many of which had to be researched), documentation and, indeed, keeping us informed at every level. A skilled professional, yes. A personable, knowledgeable and efficient realtor...absolutely!! We highly recommend Bill Bussard. John and Betti Marvel
Bill was there every step of the way from the initial offer to closing. During this period, we were out of state during the Christmas Holidays and the sellers as well were out of state during the whole process. FAX's and emails were the norm, and Bill made sure every thing was kept moving with little of no delays.

Fantastic agent. Bill went above and beyond to help us find the right place and secure the right deal. He was always extremely honest and extremely punctual with his responses. Bill's knowledge of the local area is impressive and he continues to answer my questions - months after the property has closed.
You can't go wrong with Bill. I highly recommend him.
Bill was always ready and able to answer my questions which I considered the most important attribute as I was not in the Real Estate field. He also had solutions to the problems I would expierence. I would not hesitate to hire him again. Thanks Bill for all you help, Mary Steffensen
Bill was listing agent for the Seller of the property I eventually purchased and I choose to use him as my agent as well on the purchase side. I felt confident he could affect both sides positively without conflict. I was correct in my assessment finding him honest and truthful without conflict and recognizing the needs of both the seller and me the buyer to consummate a happy and successful purchase for all. I would recommend Bill without hesitation for this area.
It is my pleasure to recommend Bill Bussard as a top Real Estate Agent who helped us acquire our new vacation home in SPI. Bill, I want to thank you for your patience, understanding and care throughout the buying process. Your expertise and knowledge of the South Padre Island Real Estate Market was instrumental in getting us over the finish line. Great Job! Edwards Family, May, 2015
All real estate transactions can become difficult and complicated when you least need the aggravation, and mine was no exception. Bill proved himself a professional by successfully navigating one hurdle after the next. The market was not particularly seller friendly at the time; nevertheless, Bill was able to close a win-win deal for me in record time. I recommend that any potential buyer or seller give him a call and hear what he has to say.
Bill Bussard did a great job in selling 2 condos in south Padre Island, Texas. He kept me informed by email or phone of all activity. Advised me regarding a lot of details that I was not familiar with. I would highly recommend him! Edith Smith
Where do I begin? Our journey began with door to door service when Bill picked me up at the border in Brownsville and dropped me at the Airport after a day of viewing carefully selected homes that matched my criteria in Laguna Vista and Port Isabel. And his prompt and passionate service did not end until we closed on a home nearly a year later. He helped me on all levels of decision making, negotiated extremely well with the seller's agent, and really rolled out the red carpet when we moved in. I cannot rate him highly enough, nor recommend anyone else when considering a real estate purchase in the Laguna Madre bay area or Rio Grande Valley for that matter.
We had our condo on the market for a while. Bill was very persistent in bringing in potential buyers and when we finally had a serious buyer Bill went out of his way to ensure the sale went through. Bill's professionalism is his finest characteristic and I would highly recommend him.
Bill was our listing agent and there were several reasons we chose him. First, he was very knowledgeable of the area and market here. Second and very important to us that unlike some of the other realtors we tried in the past, Bill ALWAYS shut lights off after a showing and locked all of the doors. We only gave Bill the key to the house and he was present at every showing since he had to let the people in. Bill is very trustworthy and honest which is why we did this. He is very professional and never pushed to lower the price we were asking but did show us comps in the area so we knew what we were competing with. He even recommend an excellent Realtor at the location we were moving into which really saved us money and time at this end. We highly recommend him.
Bill was excellent .The process of selling was stress-free.He remained confident and positive in light of today's real estate market and just did the job that needs to be done. Anna Alquiza
