What Clients Say

This is a small summary of my experience working with Billy Buck and his staff. It recently came to me to sell a property which had been in our family for 65 years. It was a beautiful, well-cared for home located in a highly valued North Arlington neighborhood. It was also a cherished family  home, full of years of memories and emotional ties. The task ahead of me was daunting on many levels as I had no knowledge at all of the process of selling a house and also, as the trustee of our family, a great burden of responsibility was upon my shoulders. I interviewed several realtors. Some people wanted me to do expensive upgrades and when I was not willing, they diminished the value of my home and appeared to have little interest in working with me. Others were excited about the charm of the property and wanted to make many cosmetic improvements but were not knowledgeable in the more weighty matters that housing inspectors are well versed in. It was very draining and discouraging for me. But when I met Billy, within fifteen minutes of our walk through the house, I knew that he was the right realtor. He is utterly respectful and careful. He is keenly aware of the way houses are built, the kinds of problems that can arise from unseen sources and he is astute in his judgment of what needs to be done to make the property have it's best face forward. He is not wasteful of time or money. He listens. He looks. He is impeccable, organized, and he and his staff are efficient and communicate seamlessly between themselves and their client. When situations would arise, especially when there was a need for Billy to convey some information to me, perhaps something I may not have understood or a next step, he always explained and offered me several options, never diminishing what my questions were but advising and encouraging. Buck Realty is a long-standing, family owned Arlington business. If you spend any time at all talking with Billy you can hear it; he knows the real estate business and how it works. And he knows so much of the workings of Arlington in particular. His instincts are right. It’s a trustworthy experience to have his expertise on your side. I’m grateful for having had the chance to do this project with Billy. He was a helper, a guide and a friend. And in these times and seasons, and in this area in particular, to encounter someone with all of those qualities while conducting a business transaction, is quite a find.”

After interviewing several recommended realtors, I chose Billy Buck to sell my mother’s home. He and Heidi Robbins were there from clearing out the house, preparing and marketing the house and representing me at settlement. His knowledge was endless and of great benefit. They were delicate when  need be yet formidable as negotiators on the sale. I live out of state and depended on Billy immensely for updates and feedback. It is without any hesitation that I would recommend Billy Buck to anyone with real estate needs. I already have!!”

J Davis

Billy Buck has a data-driven, analytical approach to the real estate market. He was able to give us details about our target market so that we could make intelligent decisions about our pricing and other items which ultimately got our house sold. We had used another agency prior to Billy Buck and  no one was ever able to tell us who was buying in our neighborhood, what people were looking to spend, etc. Having that type of information to use is invaluable and ultimately saves you time and money.”

J Yaskins

Working with Buck & Associates was a great experience. They were on point and always available to support the timely sale of our home and purchase of our new home. I highly recommend their expertise and look forward to future transactions with the Buck & Associate team.”

Joseph Iojek

Sold a Condo in 2017 for $300K in Alexandria, VA.

We had an excellent experience working with Billy and colleagues. His expertise and knowledge of the area are huge assets for home buyers. He and Buck & Associates went above and beyond to help us find the right home and provided helpful, sage, and patient advice throughout our search.”

Kathy Kelly

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for $800K in Waverly Hills, Arlington, VA.

I highly recommend Billy Buck and his associate Heidi Robbins. Both were assertive without being overbearing; respectful; and extremely helpful in addressing issues that arose during the process. Both went out of their way on all fronts.”

Country Club Hills 2016

I was referred to Buck and Associates from my Uncle who had previously had great success selling three of his properties in Arlington with Billy. As a first-time homebuyer, I wanted to work with someone who had a solid reputation and deep understanding of the market. Both Billy and Phil did not disappoint! At our initial meeting, they walked me through the home buying process and established my search criteria. I was very particular in what I wanted and for over six months, both Billy and Phil were always available by phone or email and willing to accommodate my difficult schedule to view properties on short notice, late on weeknights and over the weekend. Having bought, sold or rented properties in all the condo buildings I was interested in, they had a wealth of knowledge about their details and were able to provide useful feedback from previous clients’ experiences. When I finally found the place, I wanted to make an offer on, Billy and Phil knew how to position it so mine was the most attractive option to the seller within my budget constraints. I would highly recommend Billy, Phil and the rest of the Buck and Associates team to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent in the area!”

Used Billy and his team to sell my $1.15MM townhome in Rosslyn. Overall very good experience. In all phases of the selling process – pre-listing prep, listing specifics, marketing, final contract negotiation – Billy’s suggestions were timely and well thought out. He was easy to work with, diplomatic and honest in his dealings and forthright when necessary. As a bonus, I used his truck to move extra furniture to storage during the listing period and plan to use it again to support of my final move. Nice benefit that – pardon the pun – saved me a few “Buck’s”.”

Buck and Associates made the entire home-buying process easy and efficient! Their highly experienced staff was professional, responsive, and knowledgeable about the Arlington market, and they were very helpful in figuring out what properties would best suit my needs. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone searching for a home in the NoVA area!!”

Nisha P.

Fall 2016, Colonial Village

My wife and I had been coming in and out of the real estate market for years never being satisfied with the buying opportunities or just getting frustrated with the process and settling for easy and staying put. That was until we signed up with Buck. The specific knowledge of the area, contacts within the marketplace and of those related businesses/orgs/people that serve it, flexibility, and availability were unlike anything we had experienced before. Importantly for us, it wasn’t just about finding the right property. We were able to find the right broker, inspector, title company, etc. to meet some very tight deadlines to close a deal. In a true testament to something that sets this local business apart from the plethora of corporate shingles around, the process didn’t end at closing. There is such a thing as after sales support in real estate but it is as rare as hen’s teeth. I would never use any other for Arlington.”

Kevin & Pamela M.

North Arlington

My wife and I were very impressed with Billy Buck and Heidi Robbins through every stage of the process of selling our home.  They were responsive, skillful, professional, and understanding of our specific needs and mindful of our preferences.  The work they had done to prepare the house was very cost-effective, done well, and completed on time.  Their communications about the property were attractively done and used all formats – print, electronic, mail, and the traditional flyers and brochures.  Four days after the first open house we received multiple offers and we settled (also smoothly done) two weeks later.  We highly recommend them.”

Mark & Dorothy M.

Arlington

I just wanted to say thanks again for the complete professionalism and manner in which Buck and Associates, and you and Heidi specifically, managed all facets of the sale of our current home and purchase of the new home.  We are now enjoying the long list of items, including unpacking, moving into a new home entails.  Our two sons could not be more excited about the extra space and having a yard to destroy.

The reality is moving into our dream home would not have been possible if you hadn’t successfully sold our old home in under a week, at above what we were asking, as well as negotiated the purchase of our new home at a price well below what the seller was asking.  You encouraged us to trust and follow your advice, and we are both so very happy that we did.  I am still mystified that everything worked out the way it did.

Thank you for being an honest broker and holding our hands in the crazy process that is selling and buying a home.   From the entire family…a sincere thank you!”

Bryan and Jen

Thank you again—you are truly customer-focused, and you went above and beyond!  Not only did you make working at a distance easy for me, but we had a few more complications than normal, and you handled it all.  You helped us deal with a violation notice from Arlington County, as well as with the repairs needed to remove the financial contingency because the sale was “as is,” and even worked with Arlington County to reduce the property tax assessment!  I would be happy to provide a recommendation to anyone considering using Billy Buck and his team to sell real estate in the DC Metro area.”

Laurie W. 2016

Rosslyn House Sale

My heartfelt thanks to Billy and Phil for guiding me through this journey over the past year and a half.  I am so grateful and appreciative to them for their extraordinary professionalism and for the care they showed to me and my family.  From the joy of finding the lot before it was even listed, to the stresses of selling, they were steady and so helpful through it all.  We look forward to welcoming them in our new home as friends this spring!”

Billy and Phil helped us find our dream home. The process was painless. Not only were they patient, they were extremely knowledgable, approachable and available. If we ever move we will definitely use them to both sell our home and find another!”

Adrienne & Keith

McLean, VA – Summer 2015

I can’t say enough about Billy Buck. We first met Billy when he was the listing agent for the home we bought in Arlington. He was professional and courteous, but he also talked us into paying 100% of the asking price for the home. When it came time for us to sell the house three years later, I knew I wanted Billy to represent us. He and his team exceeded all of our already high expectations. Not only did he sell our home in 30 days for 98% of the asking price (this is especially impressive given that our home was on the market for over 2 million dollars, a price point that often requires additional time), but he managed our punch list for us after we moved out of town, meeting with contractors and inspecting the completed work. We are certain that our fabulous experience selling our home would not have been nearly as positive were it not for Billy.”

Olde Glebe, Arlington, VA

As a young, first-time potential homeowner only a few years out of school, I was very nervous venturing into the Arlington/Washington market.  Billy and his outstanding colleague Phil were recommended to me by a long-time Arlington resident — and for good reason.  From the first day they sat down with me and spent two hours patiently answering my questions about the homebuying process to closing-day, when they surprised me with a bottle of champagne after I’d just purchased my first home, they were absolutely outstanding.

Billy and Phil know the local market as well as — or better than — anyone, and that knowledge proved to be incredibly helpful as we collectively formulated a strategy for finding a property that met my requirements.  Not only are they hard-working, responsive, and professional, but they’re also genuine, laid-back, and simply a pleasure to be around, even after a long afternoon of property tours.  Most important of all, though, they had my complete trust throughout the entire experience.  It’s obvious why they have such a sterling reputation, and I have nothing but the highest recommendation for Billy and Phil.”

Arlington, Summer 2015

Billy helped me determine how to present the house to maximize the contract price and minimize the time of the market. Billy toured the property, made suggestions both inside and outside and helped coordinate contractors to get the house ready for sale. He kept me informed of process on all fronts. House went under contract within a week at full asking price. I couldn’t be happier with the process and the result.”

Alcova Heights

Arlington, VA, Summer 2015

When I decided to sell my home in North Arlington in February 2015, as is my practice, I consulted three real estate companies. All provided the same basic information on price, showing and selling. Billy Buck and Phil McGeorge gave the most careful and thorough presentation and so I selected Buck Associates. To be fair, I had met them when I rented one of their properties when my home was being renovated. At that time I also found them helpful. They performed their duties exactly as they had promised. Suggestions to make the house absolutely ready for selling were sensible in both budget and execution. The house sold in April 2015 in a few days with multiple offers. Billy and Phil were always accessible, responded promptly and courteously to requests. There were some minor glitches along the way to the June 2015 settlement, but they showed skill in negotiation and backbone in resisting demands, firmly supported by me. They also worked hard to find the type of condominium I wanted and bore my specifications in mind. They gave me a lot of time in the quest which was, ultimately successful. They never pushed properties and were always up front and honest about the pros and cons. I sum, I was very satisfied with their work and getting two for the price of one was a bonus. Good-humor, patience and a realistic approach to the whole process was a great advantage. I would recommend them without hesitation and am grateful for their work with me.”

Burns

Falls Church, Summer 2015

Billy Buck was my landlord for 3 years and was always fair, kind and responsive to emails, maintenance requests, etc. So when my husband and I decided to make the shift from renting to home-owning, we didn’t hesitate to go with Billy. As first time home buyers, I had many questions and Billy was patient and spent time to clarify anything I felt unsure about. An added bonus is that Phil McGeorge (another real estate professional) was working closely with him so I had two really knowledgeable people to talk to. Through the whole process I felt like I had two people in my corner who I could trust and really had my back. I have been a homeowner now for about 3 months and although I know I will miss having Billy as a landlord when my sink gets clogged or the AC unit stops working, I’m loving owning my new place. I’m so glad we used Billy Buck to purchase our first home and I would highly recommend Billy and Phil to any potential home buyers.”

Rachel & Pete

Park Fairfax, Summer 2015

My wife and I opted to work with Buck & Associates on our recent real estate transaction after receiving a glowing recommendation from friends of ours – and we are so happy that we did. In our very first sit-down meeting with Billy, he impressed us with his encyclopedic knowledge of Arlington real estate by pinpointing, without the benefit of previous research, a potential watershed issue on the property we were interested in. Throughout our fairly rapid process from open house to closing, Billy and Phil were incredibly responsive – both by email and on the phone – and helped us navigate the finer points of real estate transactions in Arlington. We could not be happier with our new home, and with the experience we had working with Billy and Phil. I plan to pass along the same glowing recommendation we originally received to any friends of ours entering the market.”

Steve & Jessica W.

Ballston Winter 2015

Once I made a decision to sell my house, it was already late in the year and getting it listed before the summer ended, was going to be  a feat.  However Billy Buck and Philip McGeorge were the best partners one could ask for. Their  professionalism  helped us get through the minute details as well as the large issues.  They had  a wealth of resources to draw from to handle maintenance items, staging and we had the use of their truck! Gentlemen, thank you, it was  a lot of work but your experience, knowledge and assistance made it easier.”

Berkshire Oakwood, Arlington, VA

Phil and Billy were awesome in helping us find a place to live. They went above and beyond in showing us multiple homes, working around our busy schedules, and even meeting with us on very short notice. They were very quick to respond to our questions and emails. They were extremely knowledgeable of the area and were great at negotiating on our behalf. We would highly recommend anyone to use Phil and Billy if they are looking to buy or a sell a home in Arlington.”

C. Schulz Radnor

Ft Myer Heights, Arlington, VA.

Billy & Phil did a great job marketing the house. They were GREAT to work with, kept in close touch, answered our questions, provided superb prep/repair support through their recommended vendors, hung tough during the sales negotiations, and got a fair price for our place in a very competitive market despite the “architectural penalty” (Billy’s perfect term for the bi-level design). Plus, the Buck Truck turned out to be absolutely invaluable for our local move.  It was a much better experience, we thought, than any of the big impersonal national companies could have possibly provided. We will recommend Buck & Associates with great enthusiasm!

Crescent Hills, Spring 2014

I had the opportunity to work with Billy Buck and Phil McGeorge from Buck & Associates with a very unusual situation. I had to sell 2 properties in the Arlington Area but live about 4 hours away. I was highly impressed with the in depth research they had done and how well prepared they were at our first meeting. Their suggestions on the market value and possible asking prices were as good as I could have expected. After the first meeting everything else was done through email and phone. I truly enjoyed working with them and was more than satisfied with the results. Because of their marketing techniques, we had good offers on both properties in a short period of time. They kept me well informed. Their expertise and professionalism were noteworthy. I would highly recommend them and would definitely use them again if the need arises.”

Lyon Park, 2014

Our family wanted to liquidate a residential investment property in Arlington in order to settle an estate. We could not be more pleased with the advice, service and support we received from Billy Buck and Philip McGeorge. They know and truly understand the Arlington market. We met at the property and within one week, Buck and Associates had an open house, a Broker’s Open, internet marketing (including YouTube) and traditional marketing materials. Four days later, we had seven offers and were able to sell it 4% over the list price. Billy and Philip also helped with a post-closing issue that was not their responsibility, but they were happy to help.”

Arlington Heights, Spring 2014

We turned to Billy Buck & Associates because we figured they would be fully knowledgeable of the market in Arlington. Turns out our hunch was quite right! They guided us carefully through the steps of preparing our townhouse for sale, including exceedingly helpful referrals to workmen and other vendors. The availability of their truck to move large items was also quite beneficial. And we liked the convenience of their office, to boot. Our house sold three days after the initial open house and at a welcome increase over the listing price. Buck & Associates was a pleasure to work with.”

John and Michael

Ballston, VA 

We had a great experience working with both Billy and Phil from Buck & Associates.  They helped us buy our first home back in 2010, and when we started to look for a bigger place we knew we wanted to work with them again.  They both went the extra mile to make the process as easy for us as possible: helping with vendors to get our condo ready for sale, dealing with a difficult set of circumstances on our home purchase, and generally being extremely responsive and reliable.  We would not hesitate to recommend Buck and Associates to anyone buying or selling a home in Arlington!”

Matthew and Stephanie

Ballston, VA

“Billy Buck and Philip McGeorge guided us through our year-long search in a highly-competitive market and neighborhood in Alexandria. Billy and Philip were always available to visit properties and answer our questions via phone, email and text – which is invaluable in a hot market where time is of the essence.  We relied on their expertise to help us compete in bidding situations, which ultimately paid off – we are in our perfect first home! Their positive and realistic outlook and willingness to explain the process to us in detail made our home-buying experience worry-free. The free moving truck was a great perk! We don’t hesitate to recommend Billy and Philip to our friends.”

Gordon and Melissa

Alexandria, VA

“After a failed attempt to sell my house as a “for sale by owner” I found Billy Buck.  I was immediately impressed with his knowledge of the real estate market and his honest straight forward manner.  I was approached by a number of agents that wanted to list my house, but when I met Billy I knew that he would be a great agent to work with.
After listing the house with Billy the house was sold in two weeks.  YEAH!  Billy was always accessible and responsive to my questions and requests.  I plan to use Billy for my future real estate needs.”

Cathy D.

Country Club Hills, Arlington

“Over the past decade, Billy Buck has represented us four times as both a buyer and seller.  In each case, Billy has demonstrated unmatched professionalism and extraordinary knowledge of the market, providing us with exceptional advice at every step of the way.  Billy and his team worked seamlessly with us and the many other parties involved in the transactions, communicating precisely and professionally.  From the beginning to the end of each deal, Billy was energized and focused on our needs, answering any and all questions day or night.  Billy unfailingly got us the house we wanted at the right price.

After the deal was done, borrowing his truck for the move was convenient and saved us a bundle.   In a heartbeat, I would recommend him to any of my friends looking for the best real estate agent in Northern Virginia.”

Casey & Drew T.

Fairlington, Arlington

My husband and I used Buck Realty to purchase our first single family home in Arlington, Virginia and we highly recommend their services for your reality needs.  We worked with both Billy Buck and Philip McGeorge who provide valuable guidance and advice throughout the home buying process.  They always kept us informed and followed up in a timely manner through both email and phone.  They made themselves available to answer our questions and provide clarification when needed.  Buck Reality made sure our first home buying experience was a positive one and they even provided us with a free moving truck!”

Natie and Renee L.

“We have moved several times and are now onto our seventh house. I can honestly say that I wish Billy had been around to list all of those houses and regret that we didn’t go with him initially on our house in Arlington (which was listed by another Broker for over a year without success). From the get-go, he was very motivated, had a great game plan and even came over for an interview the morning after his new baby boy was born!! I had no question after our meeting that he was going to take care of all of our issues and get our house sold.

Living out of the country, I didn’t really have time or access to worry about burnt out bulbs or if the bathrooms needed a quick wipe-down. He took care of all of that. Snow-shoveling or even issues with a furnace were also no issue as he had it taken care of. Communication was excellent and the traffic he generated throughout a winter season was also impressive. His marketing is strong but local connections even more impressive. In the end, we wound up with multiple offers and, in this market; I credit that all to Billy.

I know we all like the agents that sell our homes, but again, having moved several times, this was different. Billy’s your guy!!”

We only have the absolute highest marks to give Billy. My wife and I have bought and sold probably 15 properties and we would put Billy at the top of the list (alongside a long term friend who is an agent) in terms of realtors that we’ve worked with. He was incredibly responsive to our calls, emails, and text messages. He very closely helped us determine exactly what to do with our current house to prepare it to sell. And, to be honest, I really enjoyed working with a local realty company. In summary, I literally have no areas of weakness to discuss with respect to Billy. He is simply outstanding.”

Billy Buck provided me with a worry-free and satisfying experience in selling my house. He coordinated extensive renovations on my home, and my house had a contract on it 10 days after being put on the market in an amount that was higher than equivalent houses in the neighborhood were selling for. I highly recommend him and plan to use him, again in the future.”

Cynthia O.

Vienna, VA

Billy Buck’s real estate expertise is unbelievable! He made our home buying experience a positive one. Billy referred us to a top-notch lender who pre-approved us for a loan within days. Billy helped us find a house in the Addison Heights neighborhood of Arlington. After finding the perfect home, Billy shined as he skillfully maneuvered us into position to compete against several other offers – including the listing agent’s client. After closing, Billy gave us free use of his moving truck and referred us to some excellent contractors to help us with some improvements. We couldn’t have done it without him. We highly recommend Billy Buck as a Realtor to all of our friends.”

Sue & Steve R.

I recently sold my home in North Arlington, and Billy Buck was my Realtor and agent. It had been 30 years since I had last sold a home, so I needed and relied on Billy’s strong support. I could not have been more pleased with the help he gave me. All during the time of listing and readying the house for the market, I was living in Seattle, WA. Therefore, the overseeing of the fix-up and cleanup was in Billy’s hands. He did a superb job. He kept me informed about the progress, and he was honest in his assessments of that progress in our frequent phone conversations. I made only one trip back to Arlington and that was primarily to oversee the packing and loading of my furniture. Throughout all the facets of the sale, he was professional, friendly, and dependable. He returns phone calls promptly, and he knows the Northern Virginia market well. He also acted as my agent at closing. Perhaps the best measure of his help and knowledge was that my house sold in one week for the full asking price.”

Sue P.

We highly recommend Billy Buck as a seller’s agent. We found that, through Billy’s aggressive marketing techniques, everyone who is interested in buying a property in a locale is made aware of the offering. Two years ago, we selected Billy as our agent for the sale of our residence in Arlington. The property was listed at $331,500. We received 11 contracts. The winning offer came in at $342,750. Recently, we had another residence in Arlington to be sold. Through Billy’s aggressive marketing of this property, we received 5 contracts, with the winning offer being $510,000 on a listing price of $439,000.”

Bob & Nan L.

After casually searching the real estate market in Arlington for a year, we contacted Billy to help us negotiate the purchase of a new home. We discussed with him our time frame and rather strict housing requirements (we were looking for a home in the Woodmont neighborhood).

Billy provided us with updates as new homes came on the market until we hit on one that was perfect. After Billy, through hard negotiating, arranged an excellent and accepted purchase price, we were faced with the sale of our original home. Given the time constraints presented by the new purchase, we knew we had to have an immediate sale. We were skeptical that a fast sale could be had given our asking price and the time of year (November).

Fortunately for us, Billy guided us through the process with his undivided attention. From providing a full assessment of the property’s strengths and weaknesses to coordinating cosmetic repairs and yard clean-up, the house was ready for showing in two weeks! Moreover, the sale was a huge success. We had a contract on the house within five days and a final sale within the month. We could not have been happier with the result.

We had used other Realtors prior to meeting Billy and have been extremely impressed with his high level of service and dedication. We highly recommend him to anyone either selling or buying a home.”

Tom D.

Billy: I have been buying and selling real estate for twenty years. You, by far, have been the best in the business. You’re the only broker I’ve felt was underpaid!”

John F.

Two years ago, when we worked with Billy Buck on the purchase of our North Arlington townhouse, we were very impressed with his straightforward style and integrity in helping us get the house that we wanted for an amount of money that we felt comfortable spending. This summer, when we looked to move into a larger single-family home in Lyon Village, we knew that we would trust Billy again not only to help us find just the right home for our family, but also to help us prepare and sell our home quickly and at a competitive price. During our home search, Billy made sure that we had all possible resources at our fingertips, and he always made himself available to answer even our most detailed questions. We knew that Billy was always looking out for our best interests.”

Kevin & Adrienne E.

Billy worked with us through each stage of our sale. Billy gave us ideas on how to prepare the house so it would show its best; he provided us with the opportunity to review advertisement language and photographs; he did a great job publicizing the sale in advance, and held the open house at the time we asked. After the open house, he spent time with us in reviewing all offers and explaining how to choose among competing offers. At settlement, Billy ensured us that the sale went through as planned.”

Gene & Louisa A.

I am so pleased with the sale of my house by Billy Buck. I live 160 miles from the property and physically could not do the repairs. He provided painting, repairs by trusted contractors and constant follow up services. We kept in touch daily. He kept me informed of charges and did nothing without my approval. We went to settlement on time, and I ended up with more money than I expected. I would highly recommend him as a Realtor.”

Virginia B.

I would recommend using Billy Buck as a Realtor/Broker without hesitation. He’s hard-working, honest, and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and I found his integrity unparalleled.

He helped us both as a buyer’s agent and seller’s agent. During the buying process, he worked tirelessly with us until we found the right home. When we finally found something we wanted to buy, we had to turn around and sell our house on an unbelievably tight schedule and during an “off” time of year.

Without Billy’s fantastic knowledge of the market, his generous office support from Buck & Assoc. and his ability to go above and beyond the typical responsibilities of a Realtor, we would not have sold our house as quickly as we did (28 days from listing to closing). For example, he was able to provide us help with everything from the mundane: yard work & hauling over-sized trash away, to the critical: recommending dependable home inspection, home improvement, moving and mortgage companies, and making sure we stayed on schedule. Most telling of our trust in him is the fact that my husband and I were out of the country when we sold our house and Billy agreed to act in our absence at the closing. We gave him our power-of-attorney and left with confidence that there wouldn’t be any problems–and there weren’t.

Returning to Arlington without a “For Sale” sign on our house any longer was a huge relief and we really owe it to Billy’s professionalism and hard work. “

Billy and Christina were able to give us the edge we needed to find the perfect house in a very competitive marketplace. Not only is their knowledge of the real estate market unparalleled, their patience, understanding and attentiveness made us feel as though they were working for us 24 hours a day. When we finally saw the house we knew we just had to have, we found ourselves in a TEN contract situation. Billy and Christina knew just what to do to put us in a winning position, and we credit them with getting our family into our “dream house.” We would recommend Billy and Christina without reservation to any prospective home buyer looking to buy a home in Arlington County.”

Dear Billy,
Whoopee, it is sold! I can’t thank you enough for all you did. You took that sale and single handedly saw it all through from us moving to the day of settlement! Do you have any idea what that meant to me? The wonder of it all was that is happened so fast. And I never had a thing to do!

The couple who bought it are going to love it. It was a good house for me for almost twenty years, and it now has a new young couple to put their love into it.

Thank you again for being so kind.
Most sincerely,”

Thank you again for lending Northern Virginia Parents of Multiples your company’s moving truck. In the past, it took multiple trips and many hours for our volunteers to bring the clothing racks and equipment from our storage unit to set-up our semi-annual consignment sale. This year, you kindly lent us your truck at no cost and we were able to reduce our set up time by three hours. In the world of parents of twins and triplets three hours is HUGE! Thank you! Your generosity made a big difference in the success of our sale.

Our club provides support to local families with twins, triplets, and quadruplets. We also donates thousands of dollars worth of clothing and equipment to local charities who support families with small children.

Its wonderful to have generous local businesses, like yours, helping us to achieve our goals!”

Thank you, thank you, thank you. At a time when the real estate market in Arlington, VA is not quite as vibrant as it was in 2005, you were able to get my condo sold. Yes, it took five months. Yes, I had to reduce the price. And no, unlike the people on the television who tell you that if you paint your place and put in granite countertops there will be multiple offers over the asking price, I was fortunate to get the one offer that was solid and I accepted it.

But before all of that happened, you were there to guide me; to tell me that my location was excellent, not only within Arlington but also within the condominium building; and to advise me what improvements I needed to make and what improvements were unnecessary. You understood the intrinsic value of the size of the unit and the secure parking spaces as well as the non-tangible benefits such as being able to see the 4th of July fireworks from the unit.

You were helpful in your use of technology with faxing and e-mailing documents to minimize the cost of next day delivery services. You anticipated the concerns I would have at different times during the process from the initial offer to the final closing and addressed them before I had time to be worried about them.

You were timely and responsive to my phone calls and e-mails including answering many tedious questions. Your experience in all things real estate demonstrated to me the mark of a true professional in every sense of the word. Throughout the process you were pleasant to deal with, intelligent, and thoughtful. In short, you are the best.

I have recommended you to several of my friends who are selling and/or buying. Given the need or opportunity, I would definitely list with Buck & Associates, Inc. in the future.”

Billy,
I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism and going well beyond the job requirements to bring about the sale of my mother’s house. I also appreciate your sensitivity to the concerns I had as Trustee to the Trust which owned the house and helping facilitate the clearing from the house of all my mother’s possessions, and the offer to help to my brother, who had been living in the apartment over the garage, to move to other accommodations once the house was sold. In a very difficult market, you were a great comfort in helping get the house fairly appraised and suggesting the manner in which it would show the best. You understood my timetable in selling the possessions, providing people to rid the house of unsold items, and securing house cleaners, saving me untold anxiety and hours of searching for the right people. You had a great marketing plan which built interest in the house before it went on the market. Your plan certainly worked as we had the house under contract within weeks of it being put on the market. Every week the house remained unsold was significant to my mother’s financial well-being, and the clean, quick sale made my life as Trustee much easier. All I can say is thank you, again. Your good spirits, prompt response to each of my inquiries, and sage guidance made a task I had dreaded much easier than I had believed possible. Thank you.”

As a first-time home buyer, I particularly appreciated Billy’s in-depth understanding of each of the neighborhoods I was interested in – as well as my needs as a new buyer. He took the time the time not only to show houses, but to help me fully understand what to look for and what to watch out for. He helped make the whole process – from start to finish – a great experience. I also appreciated his keen attention to detail, both in the home and in the contract. I have highly recommended him to all my friends who are similarly looking to take advantage of the current market for first-time buyers.”

Billy listed our house in the Dominion Hills neighborhood in N. Arlington. Since we no longer live in the DC Metro area, he provided us with the additional support we needed for coordinating our Tenant’s post-occupancy inspection, the necessary updates to get our house ready to put on the market, in addition to meeting with contractors and negotiating the repairs needed prior to listing the property and once it was under contract. He even met with Arlington County’s building code inspectors to be sure we were in compliance with the repairs specified in the sales contract.

From the time the Listing Agreement was signed to the end of the entire process, we found Billy to be extremely accessible and responsive. We actually closed and signed all the documents remotely and ended up selling our home for 98.8% of the sales price in December 2010. We highly recommend Billy as a Listing Agent in Arlington, VA area.”

We met with Billy in June 2010. After interviewing a few agents who were active in the Arlington area we decided to list with Billy. Billy’s help with pricing our home and his recommendations for staging proved to be immensely valuable in a challenging buyer’s market. He hired a professional photographer to photograph our home and generate a full set of floor plans, which were available on multiple local and worldwide internet sites. Our home sold in less than 1 week, with 2 offers ultimately yielding 100% of the list price. He coordinated all of the Purchaser’s mandated home inspection repairs and was diligent throughout the entire process, making our move as seamless as possible. Without hesitation we have since passed his name along to our neighbors and friends.”

We give Billy the highest recommendation! He helped us find our first single-family home in our ideal neighborhood. He listened to exactly what we were looking for, and we put an offer on the very first house he showed us – because it was perfect for us! He was in “lock-step” with us each step of the way. He was incredibly responsive, hard-working, dependable, and truly cared about our long-term happiness. He made us feel like we were his only client, and went out of his way to make sure we were informed throughout the entire process. Even after the purchase, he stayed in touch with us to make sure everything was okay. Thanks, Billy!!”

Our experience working with Billy Buck was a positive to say the least. A lot went into buying our first home. We got into a competitive bidding situation as our house was sold via Auction, and Billy was instrumental in using various tactics to help us win the house. Billy returned every voice message and email promptly. He was patient with us as we had a lot of questions. Even if Billy was unavailable (due to his wife giving birth to their second child) he had his team of realtors informed and ready to assist in the process. We spent about a year looking for just the right house and not once did we feel pressured to make a decision. Billy gave unbiased and objective advice throughout the entire process. It was a pleasure working with Billy and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or even sell a home. He has a perfect mixture of energy and experience. His knowledge and experience were vital to us winning the house at auction as the property was “buy as is”. He got a team of professionals into the house prior to us making an offer to examine the roof (which has a gaping crack), a home inspector, and other various professionals to help us make an “as is” offer that was competitive to win the house, but making sure that we didn’t buy a house with major structural damages that could have buried us financially. He then made a strategic offer minutes before the deadline so as to not give our competition any chance to use our information to win the house. He also built in various contract clauses to protect us and actually help us win the house. Through his service, ability to coordinate a team of professionals into a house being sold by an estate by a team of lawyers “as is” in historic Old Town, his ability to return every phone call or email or text message quickly, ability to make a fair and equitable offer which actually gave us a strategic advantage, and various clauses that would help us come in slightly higher if outbid (which did end up being necessary), we now live in our charming home in Old Town, Alexandria.”
