Bill Barnhill, superb market leader and friend! Always willing to help and educate a fellow agent!

- Parker Robert LeClaire

Bill periodically came by to evaluate my home during the 7 years I lived in Mount Pleasant and counseled me on remodeling ideas for the value I would or wouldn't derive. Unfortunately for me I didn't turn to Bill when it came time to sell, swayed by glitzy marketing and regret it ever since.

- Joseph Albano

"It was a pleasure working with Bill Barnhill during our house hunting endeavor! He was very attentive to our preferences in helping us locate a home and thorough in all details of the process. He kept us updated on everything!  Bill is very knowledgeable about the area and fun to work with. He even helped us move some boxes! We highly recommend Bill and know you will be pleased."

- Chuck & Beth B.

"We have bought and sold with Bill Barnhill in the Old Village. Experiences on both sides have been great. Bill has a solid understanding of the market and the local dynamics. He also has a unique blend of professionalism with a very personal touch. I’ve appreciated his ability to
communicate a thoughtful action plan, and help keep the process as stress free as possible.
The process was the same if we were there or 2 states away, Bill delivered.
Thank you Bill!"

- Dave & Karen Rosene

"Bill was tireless, creative and tenacious in helping me find the perfect place in Mt. Pleasant.  I spent months trying to decide what I wanted exactly, which meant Bill and I walking a very long list of diverse properties all over Mt. Pleasant.   Bill is a true professional, the quintessential southern gentleman and has the patience of Job. You can’t go wrong having Bill meet your real estate needs in Mt. Pleasant, whatever they are."

- Joel Wilhite

"I could not be happier with the service and expert advice I received from Bill Barnhill in my Charleston home search! His knowledge of the local real estate market was informative! His patience in the decision making process was appreciated, and his thoroughness and guidance from start to finish was invaluable! I have purchased numerous homes throughout the country, but my experience with Bill Barnhill was by far the most successful and enjoyable!"

- Jim Pankovits
"Working with Bill was an excellent experience! Purchasing a home to accommodate our family of eight in Mount Pleasant was no easy task. Bill is professional, and incredibly responsive. His approach is easy to work with, effective, and left both of us knowing we were in good hands. Bill is well connected in the area and has high-quality referrals to every service we needed to confidently close the purchase. Bill literally ran the entire process and kept us well informed at every step of the way. We love our home, but if we ever move again, we will absolutely use Bill." 
- Levi & Alicia Morehouse

"Being an out-­‐of-­‐town seller with a high-­‐end oceanfront home to sell on the Isle of Palms, I needed a real estate agent with the knowledge and expertise to get it sold. I am glad I chose Bill Barnhill. Through Bill’s efforts of his professional & thorough marketing plan, I obtained a cash offer within two weeks on the market with a quick closing time….and very close to my asking price. His attention to detail and professionalism throughout the process was a tremendous peace of mind for me. When you have a home to sell (or buy) in Mount Pleasant or the Islands, I would encourage you to contact Bill Barnhill." 

- Tim Solso, Retired Chairman and CEO, Cummins Inc. (Former Chairman General Motors Company)

"Bill is a true professional and really takes the time to understand his clients needs and circumstances. My Elissa and I first met Bill at one of his open houses over seven years ago when we first moved to Mount Pleasant and were trying to learn the area. Bill took the time to understand what we were looking for and continued to stay in contact, sending us listings that we may be interested in, that met our needs and budget. He continued to do this over the course of three years, dropping a quick note here or telephone call there to check in and see how things were going. He really invested the time to get to know us and really understand what we liked. When the time was right to finally make a home purchase decision, we didn't hesitate to reach out to Bill. His understanding of our family and our needs helped immensely throughout the entire process, making it very smooth. Bill is not the kind of person that is looking for a quick win, he wants to develop those long term relationships and we really liked that. Today, we not only think of Bill as our Real Estate Agent, but we think of him as our friend. We have many times, and continue to, recommend him to anybody and everybody that asks about Real Estate in Mount Pleasant, because I know Bill will provide the same level of care and commitment that he has provided us." 

- Scott & Elissa Chrismer

“Bill’s best quality is his unselfishness. He genuinely kept our best interests at heart. This fact, combined with his ability to listen, his knowledge of the market and his timely attention to detail all factored in keeping us calm, engaged and excited throughout the process of finding our dream home.”

- Mark & Kim U.

"We began looking at homes in a incredibly competitive market. We are so thankful for the accessibility, guidance and experience that Bill provided. We looked in multiple areas in and around Charleston. Bill was with us every step of the way, making himself readily available for every question and piece of advice. We looked at dozens of homes, and without Bill's experience and patience in the purchasing/closing process we very likely would've been burned on a bad decision. We couldn't be happier with our home and highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for a trustworthy and dependable agent."

- Jake and Aly Biles

“As first time home buyers, my wife and I went into the process with a great amount of ignorance and, therefore, proportional amounts of fear. However, thanks to Bill Barnhill, our ignorance was helped and our fears were relieved. From beginning to end, Bill was right there with us, patiently answering all of our questions, giving excellent advice and counsel, and guiding the whole process along. Because of Bill’s experience, knowledge, integrity, hard work, and calm demeanor, what could have been an incredibly stressful time was actually quite enjoyable. He coordinated and attended every inspection and necessary meeting, walked us through the details of each part of the process, lead us away from potential pitfalls, kept us fully informed, and insured that the whole process stayed on track. As a result, we had a very fast and very easy closing, and we are now in a home that we absolutely love! We would be happy if we never had to move again, but if we do, Bill will be our agent. We cannot recommend him highly enough!”

- W. Ross Hodges

"Working with Bill on the sale of our beach house was a real pleasure. He is a great combination of a low key caring personality and responsive, initiative taking professional. His integrity throughout the process was also a great comfort to us."

- Eric Deierlein

"I've worked with many real estate agents over the years. Integrity and competence are often lacking. But not with Bill Barnhill. He is a class act. Unlike many agents, Barnhill demonstrates strong character, seasoned expertise, and true care for his clients. He helped us to find the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood for our family!"

- Rev. Jon D. Payne

“Bill represented our interest with an unmatched level of dedication and care that was second to none.  Once we made our decision to acquire property in Mt. Pleasant, Bill quickly identified a wonderful home, negotiated the sale and closed the deal within a very short period of time.  Needless to say, he is one of the top real estate professionals in the low country.”

- Brice Sweatt

"When working with Bill, I knew that I was getting the highest levels of integrity and commitment.  He made the process of buying and selling real estate much easier.  We listed our home at time when the market was not great for sellers and Bill was able to get our home sold very close to our asking price within 60 days of listing it.  It was a huge blessing to have Bill's help."

- Adam Martin

"Bill Barnhill went above and beyond for us!! We started our quest looking to move to the low country 7 years ago. While initially we were more hopeful than serious about a move, Bill gently guided us throughout the process. He was more than patient and understanding. When the time to move became a more serious matter, Bill helped not only in our efforts to find a new home but he also helped us with our search for short term rental housing. He exceeded our high expectations in our transition to Mt. Pleasant and was an invaluable resource to us well after the purchase of our new home."

- Kirk Paulsen

"Having Bill as our realtor for our out of state move to Mt. Pleasant made the 600 plus miles seem like nothing. Not only did Bill introduce us to all Mt. Pleasant has to offer, but he was able to connect us with local professionals who made the typically stressful parts of the move so easy.  The wealth of knowledge and advice we got along the way from every contact was top notch.   But clearly the most valuable benefit of having Bill on our team was his personal dedication to the new construction.  His eyes and ears on the ground here in Mt. Pleasant kept us connected every step of the way and he was also instrumental in identifying potential concerns early.  Bill went out of his way and we could not have asked for a better person to work with."

- Rob & Karen Meszaros

"My wife and I were new to the home buying process, so we had a lot of questions, and in some ways we weren't even sure where to start.  Bill was patient with us and took the time to explain a lot of things that are probably very basic to a real estate agent, but were foreign to us.  He was extremely reliable and always did what he said he was going to do.  At the end of the day, Bill helped us to find a home that was exactly what we were looking for.  Bill is a man of character and integrity, and someone for whom I have a great deal of respect.  We plan to use him for all our future real estate needs, and I would strongly recommend him to anyone."

- Jeff Gee

"Do you want a realtor that is a good negotiator, that gives attention to the details of your buying or selling a property, and does it all with graciousness?  If so, from our personal experience in recently buying a property and selling another, we commend to you Bill Barnhill!  If you’ve been through these transactions before, you know how stressful they can be and how many ways you can be disadvantaged.  Bill is always ahead of the game, anticipating the next step and addressing each issue; Bill assumes much of that load so the project proceeds smoothly and in a timely fashion, without angst."

- Jack & Barbara Muirhead

"We have sold and bought several houses prior to using Bill. We used Bill both to buy and sell homes in Mount Pleasant and Isle of Palms.  In Mount Pleasant, our house sold in seven days!! He did an excellent job the first time around so when we relocated again we called Bill up to help us sell our house on the Isle of Palms; our house sold in nineteen days!! Bill can estimate what your home is worth and will be fair and honest with you. In both our cases Bill was dead on with his market analysis and what our houses sold for. He appreciates working with other people in the industry and realizes that these people help him, and his clients, when they work together. Bill marketed everywhere for us because he didn’t want to miss any buyers out there. He always answered our phone calls or text messages…….always!  Bill negotiated a commission that worked for us, and let us the sellers determine the final sales price, not the agent (or their commission). If you're selling, your property may be the most valuable thing you own, and it is of utmost importance to find an agent you can trust.  He always kept us informed with what was going on and what our options might be. Bill knows all the processes, procedures & legalities, so he easily handles all the work for you. He always brought any papers that needed signatures to our house, never disrupting our schedule, at our convenience.  Seems like all we had to do was sign papers. If you need a very dependable, talented, punctual, professional realtor, Bill Barnhill is the one!"

- Fred & Laura Yaap

"I highly recommend Bill Barnhill as an excellent realtor to do business with. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the market, but he was also extremely flexible, patient, responsive and personable throughout the process. His professionalism and level of attention to detail did not end on the close date. He also has a network of acquaintances and business contacts that were equally as helpful through the buying and remodeling process after the sale. Being new to the area, this additional information and support was very much appreciated! As someone that has owned 5 homes in the past 15 years in 3 different states, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Bill throughout the buying process and still see him as a trusted resource for real estate related questions."
