Will helped us get our first home and we're so happy we reached out to him to be our agent. He was very responsive and listened to our concerns as well as answered our countless questions. Buying a new home can be a daunting process, and Will made us feel comfortable and never pressured us into making a decision we weren't 100% about. We are so happy with our purchase and know that it wouldn't have been possible in this market if Will hadn't been there to help us along the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants someone you can rely upon and trust. He is not only a great realtor, but also a wonderful person! zuser20150527235052317
Will Bateson at Sidewalk Homes helped us thru ALL the steps of purchasing our new home. Even helping us with our lender when there were issues with the HOA. He was immediately responsive to our email questions during the closing process and very good at explaining the sometimes complicated processes. He made sure we had every document we needed to get our loan processed to complete the sale. You could really tell he had your best interests at heart. A very nice man and a very hard worker. user1372397
It would be my pleasure to recommend Will to family, friend or anyone in the real estate market. Will has integrity, knows the local market, keeps the client in the loop, responds immediately and is happy to do so. Will also tracks all of the details of your buy or sale, which is extremely important. Will's judgement is sound. When he gives advice he backs up his position with solid reasoning. On a personal level, Will is an honest and frank person and easy to deal with. For us, selling our home was significant, both financially and personally. In the end, you have to trust your agent. We trusted Will and we were not disappointed!
Thank you Perry, it was such a pleasure to work with you and Peggy. Enjoy your new adventures! perryhcarter
Will Bateson from Sidewalk Homes helped me sell my house fast. I had already moved away from the area and he did everything he could to help. Meeting with inspectors and arranging to have trash removed and the yard cleaned. I highly recommend Will if your selling your home. epasillas
Will was great. Hung with me for a long time and worked with me on many things. though I wasn't buying another property he was there when I needed him. glad to have met him thru a few mutual friends three years ago. never had any pressure. I highly recommend him to everyone especially first time sellers, like me. winedrinkingduck
When I was trying to decide which real estate agent to pick I asked my father who sold real estate in the Sierras for 25 years. He had a good contact from Livermore (a former mayor) who suggested Will. I am very glad he did because Will was more helpful and prepared than any I've worked with in real estate. He communicated freqently and was available at any time. He had good contacts for cleaning and repairs. We sold the place at a slightly higher price than we expectedl and it only took about a week from putting it up for sale to accepted offer. davedovik

Will helped us sell our house as we were in the process of moving into another house. He is a good listener, gave us good advice, was easy to work with, and handled eventualities as they came up. He worked with us to strike the right balance and level-set our expectations to the market conditions in our local area. If you are looking for a realtor with local experience, we had a good experience with Will. Wanats
Facts: Will was referred to me by a friend of mine, who just sold their home in San Jose for $120,000 over the asking price, with multiple offers. My home sold for 71,000 over the asking price,multiple offers, no contingincy in 4 days. I feel Will's greatest strength is in his negotiation skills. Although I know other realtors in the area, I feel no one could have done a better job.
Process: The home I was selling had the original kitchen and baths from the 70's. Will was very helpful in guiding me with updates that would be helpful to the home sale. I replaced a carpet in the bedroom, 2 floors in the baths, new front landscaping needed to be done due to the drought. He made it clear to the buyer's agent that the house was for sale "as is", although he did not list it this way, so the buyer had the ability to get the financing they needed. Will also recommended staging the house.Will's strategy worked out very well for me.
On day 3, I was very nervous, no offers yet. Will explained to me that similiar to ebay, no one puts in an offer until the last minute. He was correct. All the offers came in at the last minute and all over asking price. Thanks Will.
Thank you so much Gloria, it was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with the sale of your home. I really appreciate how you trusted me and did everything I asked. malone33

Will did an excellent job helping us find our new home in a tough market. He was responsive to our needs and always had our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend Will for your real estate needs. myronmau
I am a real estate investor and Will has been my dependable realtor for 7 months. He's always quick to answer the phone, inquire about properties and get to the meat of the pros and cons of a property. I have completed one transaction with him which went very well and continue searching for more with his help. hc9045
We moved to Livermore from the Midwest during the summer of 2012 which was a very difficult time for buyers. Will spent countless hours on the phone and via email educating and assisting us in our Livermore property search. He never gave up, even during a time when we were discouraged and the odds were against us. Eventually, we were able to buy a property in the neighborhood we really wanted to live. His vast knowledge of real estate and the local market, and his professionalism enables him to be successful for his clients. I would recommend Will to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.
Will Bateson was an absolute joy to work with! After a very frustrating and long 10 month experience with another realtor Will was like a breath of fresh air. I met with Will on a Monday afternoon, that Saturday he showed us a home, and by the next Wednesday we had heard that we were the winning bid! 9 days! We closed in a month! Will made the whole process fun and easy! I will definitely be recommending him to anyone I know that is looking to purchase a home! Records Lindsey

It is with great pleasure that I write this review for Will Bateson.
He assisted us in the purchase of (2) homes and the selling of (2) homes over the last 11 years, and when it comes time to make our next move it will be Will Bateson to help us in that transition as well.
Will has many strengths. But, what makes him the expert in his field is the fact that he is a top notch listener. He takes notes, asks questions and realy takes the time to get to know you and your goals for purchasing a home. He totally gets how important that processes is and respects it 100%!
If you are looking for a seasoned, extremely conscientious and motivated Realtor Will Bateson is the one! sabrina4953
Will made the selling of my home very easy and stress free. He was very knowledgeable about the market and it helped me not feel the burdens of selling a home in this market where it seems things happen very quickly. steelydan2526

We have bought and sold five properties.I have recommended him to many others and he has represented them well with great success.His calm demeanor is I think his best quality.Your feedback is very important to him and he asks for it.Like others in his field he knows the business,but if you want a stressless and honest broker Will is your guy. retire33
Will is the finest, most knowledgeable real estate professional I have ever used. Short story - He sold my house for $126k over asking, with NO contingencies and a 28 day escrow. (And in case you're thinking he set the opening price too low, the same model house (but newly remodeled!) at the same starting price one street over sold for $40k less.) Will really knows what he is doing. Long story - Will walked me through the entire process; from start to finish I was never surprised or unaware of what was happening or unsure of what the next steps were going to be. As an example, we had an open house on a Sunday and the offer close day/time was Wednesday at 4. He made sure I knew that there probably weren't going to be offers before Wednesday, but not to worry as everyone typically waits until the last minute to submit offers, just like on Ebay. He was right, the offers came pouring in Wednesday afternooon as he promised. Our termite inspector found $14.5k in damages, Will negotiated no contingencies. I could not have asked for a better agent or real estate experience. This was easily the smoothest transaction I have ever been part of. buystuff03
