Recommendation written to Mr. Jay Mitchell Broker:
When my husband Larry and I made the colossal decision to move from our home in Virginia Beach to Florida during a global pandemic, we had our apprehensions. Fortunately, we could not have made a better decision in choosing Bill Kolovani to market our home. I met Bill years ago playing golf with his wife Edna. He was kind enough to share some Napa Valley contacts and vinyard expertise with me for an upcoming trip. Over the years I noticed Bill's real estate successes in the papers and decided to give him a call. He answered the phone! That's a big deal these days and he kept his commitment to us to be available and responsive. So important! From the pre-list house inspection to the stagers and photographers, Bill showed our house in the best possible light. He made us feel comfortable during Covid-19 by providing gloves, booties and hand-sanitizer for the prospective buyers who came through our home. We had a few offers right away and a contract within 2 weeks of listing! From there Bill was always helping by procuring the right contractors to complete work quickly to keep the buyers content and the closing on schedule.
Moving is never fun, but Bill took a huge load of stress off in the home sale process. We couldn't be happier and will recommend him to friends looking to sell without reservation.
Thanks for backing him up with a great team at BHHS Towne Realty.

Bill helped us buy our first home. He made it seem flawless! From the first phone call until the day of closing he was readily available whenever we needed him. Even after, we have contacted him for contractor recommendations because Bill always ‘has a guy’ that can help with any home issue! He is knowledgeable, friendly, negotiates like a shark, feels like part of the family! I know he is very busy and has multiple clients but he always made us feel like we were his number 1 priority! I will recommend him to everyone!
Mr. Kolovani is such a wonderful person inside and out! He was very hands on and walked us through everything for purchasing our home step by step. We would definitely recommend Mr. Kolovani and BHHS Towne Realty to everyone we know and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Recommendation Letter for Bill Kolovani
This missive is to express our thanks for the exceptional job Bill Kolovani did in selling our house in the North End of Virginia Beach. Bill provided excellent guidance, was robust in pursuit of a buyer, and simultaneously kept a calm demeanor in walking us through the process of selling our home.
Bill provided all the assistance we could have hoped for to ready our house for sale especially since we live out of town. He cheerfully acted in our stead on several occasions when we could not be there to address issues relating to home and yard preparation in order to present our home to its maximum advantage.
We would happily do business with him in the future should we ever decide to purchase a property again in Virginia Beach.
Thanks again Bill!

Realtor Bill Kolovani – Letter of Recommendation
To Whom It May Concern:
Realtors like to talk “location, location, location.”
But realtor Bill Kolovani likes to talk “results, results, results!”
In the volatile and complex real estate climate of the post-recession years, Bill Kolovani put his substantial sales experience to work for us. He overcame the obstacles the market put in our way and sold our home at a very good price in a reasonable time period.
Always accentuating the positive, Bill made clear and constant communication his trademark. He stayed close to us before listing, through many showings, and even after closing. Were it not for Bill’s care, attention and unrelenting efforts, things may have “gone south” in our sale.
We’re glad we chose Bill. He’s the results-oriented realtor who brings integrity and experience to every transaction.

I am writing to express my deepest appreciation for your efforts in helping me to find my newest home. Although this was not my first home-buying experience (in fact my third), I had recently moved from San Diego and was unfamiliar with the Hampton Roads region and housing market. You expertly and patiently guided me through the process of finding the perfect home for me!
I had very specific requirements for what I was hoping to find in Hampton Roads, including a home:
Near the waterfront (oceanfront or Bay) and beach;
In a semi-urban and walkable environment close to restaurants and shops;
In an up-and-coming neighborhood likely to appreciate in value;
Able to accommodate frequent visits from friends and family;
And within my budget.
As a type A personality, I did my own exhaustive research and had come to the conclusion that meeting all these requirements would be nearly impossible. I posted questions online about various neighborhoods, looked through numerous listings, and asked everyone I met their opinion on where to move. There wasn’t a single thing I found that you hadn’t already known or shared with me.
Then, you exceeded my expectations. In addition to the above requirements, you found the perfect home that fit my personality, career, and life situation. I truly believe this was because you took the time to get to know me as a person. Your instincts were spot on and I ended up purchasing the second home you showed me!
Incredibly, the home you found met all the previously mentioned requirements and:
Balances my desire for minimal maintenance, while allowing me a place to garden;
Give me the freedom to entertain guests and have overnight visitors, while still allowing me privacy;
Includes a garage, which as a single woman, give me a greater sense of safety when coming home from late-night work engagements (an important attribute I didn’t realize I needed!), and,
Is close to highways so I can easily travel to and from work.
You also helped connect me with outstanding professionals that assisted me in financing, home inspections, and interior design upgrades. I couldn’t be happier or more comfortable in my new home!
While I don’t see myself leaving this wonderful place anytime soon, I wouldn’t hesitate to utilize your professional services again in the future. I am happy to provide the highest recommendation for you. Thank you again!
Bill Kolovani worked with me to sell my property in Heron Ridge Estates. He presented an excellent strategy to market my hone, and in the process, created a very enjoyable experience.
Along the way, he suggested key ideas that made the home very presentable to buyers. I was always given plenty of notice for showings and if I needed his help, he was readily available.
Along with selling my home, he also found my new home, but listening to what I was interested in, and taking care to only show me homes that fit my budget and included my list of “must haves”.
Bill has a very easy going nature, which makes him delightful to work with, yet when we needed to discuss negotiations over offers, he represented my best interests.
I would recommend Bill to anyone if you want an agent who loves his job, brings an element of fun and reduces the stress of selling your home, and purchasing a new one.
