From Luke Eisenhauer 8/3/22

Bill was helpful, hardworking, and readily available at any time of the day. Bill really puts the homebuyer first, I would absolutely recommend Bill to anyone thinking of buying or selling.

From Melissa Pittman 7/28/22

He is very helpful. He helped me find my home. I am so glad I had him as realtor. He stands out from the rest. I consider him a friend. Thank you Bill. I would give you 10 stars if I could.

From Joe & Rita Rivlin:

If you need someone who really knows Virginia Beach, you need Bill! He is a wealth of knowledge about neighborhoods and, if needed, repair vendors. We enjoyed spending time with him during our home search and imagining the possibilities for each home.

Bil was amazing. Best experience ever.

From Marionette P.

Bill is a phenomenal agent - every aspect of working with him was top notch.

From Angelika

Bill helped my parents buy their first house! He has an amazing team working with him!:) had great experience!!! Thank you for everything!

From David & Sara Zelinskas

Bill is the most professional and caring agent I have ever worked with. He will make the sale and process of selling a home very easy. He will always look out for you as his client. There is a reason why he is in the top 1%. If you are fortunate to work with him, you will not be disappointed.

From Jennifer and Daughter Julie:

Bill was absolutely wonderful! He hit the ground running for me when we had to sell my property quickly and took care of everything. I am so grateful to have had him as my realtor during such an important and major life event. Couldn’t be happier with how it all went. I highly recommend him!

From Steven Carder

Bill was outstanding in all respects.  On initial outreach, he asked pointed questions to ensure he understood all aspects of my unique ownership situation.  He then offered viable Courses of Action that were based on his personal knowledge of the neighborhood and current market conditions.  Bill walked me all the way through home inspection and minor repairs to setting of an asking price, open house, offer consideration and closing.   He made the sales process as stress-free as it could be -- and he kept me in the loop throughout my personal move from Maryland to Texas.  Can't ask for better service than that!

From Timothy Perez

Excellent agent with good communication skills.

From Carol & Bill Ueckert
We are very pleased with our contact with Bill. We highly recommend him to any new home buyers! He was also very helpful on locating a renovation contractor with whom we are pleased. Bill has been very responsive to any area of interest we expressed.

From the Llanes Family

Some folks do not have any idea as to how much effort it takes buying a home, especially in today’s market where sellers are in control. Houses are flying off the market even before the “For Sale” sign gets posted. This is where the going gets tough, and the tough gets going.However, thou shall not fear, "Bill" is here! I can’t speak highly enough of Bill Kolovani as our real estate agent. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethics are very much appreciated and respected. He is a gentleman with a “can do attitude” which contributed to the successful and less painful process associated with home purchase. I'm proud to say we now have a place to call home. Thanks to Bill. I highly recommend Bill Kolovani for anything real estate. He is just a phone call away.

Wayne and I are grateful that you are an excellent listener.  We were starting to feel that the majority of realtors don’t listen to their clients and therefore ultimately end up with clients moving on to the next agent.  Everything we were looking for in an excellent realtor we found in you.  We know folks at the complex where we live who are interested in buying a home at which we will definitely pass your information to them.

Thanks again for all of your assistance.  You are a GOD send and a blessing. Feel free to use our message in your bio.

Kind regards,
Wayne and Mina Lewis

To Whom It May Concern,

Bill Kolovani effectuated the closing on my home within a month of my first speaking to him about it.  During that month, Bill was able to arrange and complete a multitude of upgrades to my home including kitchen countertops and cabinets, A/C installation, bathroom vanities,  plumbing, roofing, painting, and landscaping while consulting with me every step of the way.

Bill's professional and easily approachable demeanor contributed to a hassle-free, house-selling experience.

I highly recommend Bill Kolovani and will definitely seek his expertise and assistance in any future home transactions.

My wife and I listed our home with a local real-estate firm that advertised themselves as Hampton Roads #1 company with a guarantee that they would sell my house or they would buy it. None of the promises were true and the two sales people they assigned to the sale of our home in my opinion lacked motivation to actually sell but instead sat back for six months doing nothing. A friend of ours heard about our dilemma and recommended Bill. I had inherited my family home and had decided to sell it so I called Bill and he immediately came out and made an assessment of the property and gave me his opinion on what we should ask. Jokingly, I asked how long he thought it would take to sell? He answered by the end of the week I'll have it sold. Three days later he called with the good news and better yet he sold it for over the asking price. Since he sold my family home so quickly we had been shown a home that my wife fell in love with so I told Bill to get my wife that house but we needed to sell our current home first.  Again, I asked him how long do you think it will take because my wife's happiness depends on the sale of our home. He said one day. He sold it with multiple offers in six hours. I highly recommend this man not only because he was successful in the sale of our home but more so because he is a great human being that actually cares about his clients and not about just making money. Some people have dubbed Bill the Pitbull of real-estate and there's a reason for that. He latches on to a property and doesn't let go until it's sold. He is the man!

We can’t say enough kind words about Bill Kolovani.  He’s the total package.  Great realtor, neighbor, and friend.  We met over the phone in response to our Zillow request for a house tour.  We were lucky to get the next agent in line….Bill!!  We refer to it as our lucky spin on the Wheel of Fortune!  We felt immediately comfortable with Bill and were impressed that he was able to set up a house viewing within 30 minutes of our call.   We had been eyeing a particular house for many months and were excited Bill could get us in so quickly.  We immediately built a rapport and friendship with Bill and instantly, and without hesitation, became one of Bill’s out of town clients. Bill always accommodated our last minute visits.  Patience, time, availability, and making sure we were totally comfortable with all our decisions were all the variables Bill provided to make our home shopping experience an absolute joy.    Albeit multiple months… and house tours later…the first house we toured with Bill was the house we would end up purchasing.  His client’s needs are first priority to Bill and he goes above and beyond to meet those needs.  He did that with us.  No strings…no pressure…no sales pitch.   Bill’s objective was to make sure we were always 100% satisfied with our experience and decisions.   Upon hearing about our home buying experience with Bill, many of our friends and family plan to use Bill for future selling/purchasing needs. My husband is an attorney and has dealt with many residential and commercial real estate agents/brokers throughout his career. Bill is, by far, and unequivocally,  the best real estate agent he has ever encountered.  Our only regret is that we didn’t know Bill earlier for the sale of our previous home.  2 buck Bill…..2 good to be true.  But TRUE!!!

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!

Terri Swannee-Gardiér

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.

Most sincerely,

A F Marra

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.
