“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.”

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. -Ann R., 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!   -Jeff , Cherrydale 2015

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”.   -Ron P. Summer 2016, North Rosslyn

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.

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
