Wonderful First Time Home Buying Experience
Uzziel made our first time home buying experience a very pleasant one. We went into it nervous & not knowing what to expect. Uzziel took the time to explain the process to us every step of the way, putting our minds at ease. He is informative, caring and goes above and beyond for his clients. We would absolutely use his services again & definitely recommend him to friends & family. Thank you Uzziel!
There are no words
I cannot say enough about Bill and his team! As absentee owners, we have relied completely on Bill as an extension of ourselves and the service and attention to detail is unparalleled.
They are so great to work with and they really care – what more can I say!
My husband and I really enjoyed interacting with Heather as she smiled as soon as she opened the door to the home we viewed. The whole time she was patient and knowledgeable and willing to answer our questions. She was a positive, professional and upbeat realtor the whole time.
Kathy is such a JOY to work with!
When my husband and I were ready to purchase our second house, we were very hesitant and scared from our first home ownership experience. We were looking to buy again and home prices sky rocketing! We weren’t sure we could afford to buy again and were very discouraged. Kathy was our realtor’s transaction assistant and she was such an encouragement during the whole process. She walked us through each step to become homeowners again and we were so pleased with how calm and reassuring she was. We also became great friends and eventually colleagues! I highly recommend trusting her to help you through ANY real estate transaction!
She was pleasant, honest, responsive & very interested in getting us just what we wanted
Heather is professional and very knowledgeable about the market and right on when it comes to the listing and selling price. She does her homework on the market and comparable properties before suggesting a property and evaluates the needs prior to looking at a home. She was very helpful throughout the process. We just moved to Dallas. She baby-stepped us through the entire process of buying the property very patiently.
She was pleasant, honest, responsive, and was very interested in getting us just what we wanted. She is very friendly and will work hard for you. We must have looked at 30 plus houses and she kept looking with us. Very easy to work with.
We would certainly feel comfortable dealing with Heather again, and we are DEFINITELY RECOMMENDING Heather to my friends and family.
Excellent Work during the whole Process
I really appreciate the way Bill Fife managed my rental property in McKinney for around 8 years. His excellent property management service was always efficient and cost effective, as he was focused on keeping maintenance costs within a reasonable budget. He was always able to select the most appropriate tenant in a short period of time. I feel really happy with the entire process since the beginning of the lease to the successful house sale in a very short time. Thanks Bill.
We have worked with Mr. Fife on multiple occasions and always get stellar service – highly knowledgeable and hard working. Very high value individual with great integrity and commitment to his customer. Would NEVER consider working with anyone else!
Best experience ever!
We came to Bill Fife as first time home buyers with a limited timeline and a laundry list of specifications for our future home. This was a tall order, especially considering the aggressive competition in the area we wanted, but he delivered above and beyond on all of our hopes and expectations.
We knew immediately that we were in excellent hands – Bill took the time to thoroughly understand our objectives, pulled his team together to vet out our options, and schedule a marathon of tours. His insightful expertise taught us what to look for, beyond the surface, to help identify a home that was not only beautiful but one that was also ‘bankable’, setting us up for success when we sell in the future.
On our 8th day, having walked through more than 25 pre-qualified doors, we toured a house that was on the market for only one day. By the look on our faces when we took our second lap, it was clear that we had found ‘the one’. Bill instinctively reached out to the listing agent to gather pertinent information to help us prepare an offer, with a personal touch and tailored to the seller’s needs (without compromising on our own), guaranteed to stand out from the competition. On the 9th day of working together, we were under contract and had a new address to call our home.
Bill is a prowess as a realtor, an extremely hard worker, is passionate about his clients and has a fabulous personality. He was a fantastic partner and he comes with our highest recommendation.
Bill Fife has professionally managed my rental properties in the DFW area for over 10 years now
Bill Fife has professionally managed my rental properties in the DFW area for over 10 years now. He has keen insight about the DFW real estate market. His property management service has always been fast, efficient and cost effective. He is focused and efficient as far as keeping maintenance costs within a reasonable budget. And he is always able to select the strongest tenant in a short amount of time.
Christie gave sound advice and put us in a good position
Although we are in our forever home and we have no plans to move again, I would without hesitation hire Christie to go through the entire process again. Christie gave sound advice and put us in a good position to put our house on the market within a week, sell our house within 3 days and close on a new house within 40 days! I cannot express how much we appreciated her work ethics, her honesty and her quick response to every listing we wanted to see and every question we had.
If you need an agent who will go above and beyond, look no further than Kelly
My wife and I were first-time home buyers, and we were incredibly lucky to have Kelly help us through this process. She was very generous with her time, offered many recommendations and tips that proved very useful, and overall was a pleasure to work with. If you need an agent who will go above and beyond, look no further.
Uzziel is super nice and above all super helpful
Uzziel is super nice and above all super helpful. He helped my girlfriends and I find a home in our budget that we completely adore in a great neighborhood. Uzziel even took me to and from homes in the area! If you want a realtor that is a stand up guy that will work very hard to find a home this is your guy.
Bill Fife has always exceeded my expectations by miles!
I have owned rental property in the Dallas area (and in other states) for many years. I have had great property management companies and not-so-great. What makes the difference to me is the dedication and attention to detail exhibited by a property manager. Bill Fife has always exceeded my expectations by miles; he always does what he says he is going to do! He is direct, efficient and effective. I have worked with Bill for my real estate needs since 1991 and have long respected his judgment and expertise. I highly recommend him to manage your property too and get results!
We could not have been more satisfied with our experience with Christie
We could not have been more satisfied with our experience with Christie. We worked with Christie twice, once from a different city where she assisted us in renting a house without ever meeting us or working with us face to face. Christie made our first transition to McKinney so stress free. Christie went above and beyond our expectations taking pictures of each house we were interested in such a timely manner and sending them to us via email. When we were ready to purchase our own home we absolutely without a doubt knew we would work with Christie again. Christie helped us search for our dream home. She is very knowledgeable and completely honest throughout the entire process. If she could not answer our questions she used her resources and got us an answer. Without Christie the process of building a new home would have been even more stressful than it already was. She continues to check on us even after we closed on our house. In the end we not only found a great realtor but a great friend. If we ever decide to sell and move we would not choose anyone else. I would definitely recommend her.
I would strongly recommend Kelly to anyone!
Kelly is a stellar and outstanding agent. She was consistently engaged in the process of the propery purchase. I truely enjoyed working with her because of her knowledge and expertise in the real estate industry. Thanks again for representing me, your team did an excellent job and alleviated much of the stress involved in the negotiations. I would strongly recommend Kelly to anyone!
Uzziel, thanks for all your help in assisting me in getting my townhome and renegotiating my perks
Uzziel, thanks for all your help in assisting me in getting my townhome and renegotiating my perks. Wished I had asked for more. Lol You rock!
Bill is who you need if you own a rental property and are looking for the best possible return with the least time or effort spent on your part
Bill has managed an inherited property for me since 2011. He is the definition of a professional, courteous, and efficient manager who knows how to get things done quickly and with the least amount of hassle for the homeowner. His network of maintenance and repair contractors has always delivered quality work at more than fair prices, and within timelines that an individual homeowner can only dream about. Because he is such an important client to them, Bill can command much better and faster service. His own fees are extremely reasonable, especially when considering the range of management tasks he takes care of for you. In short, Bill is who you need if you own a rental property and are looking for the best possible return with the least time or effort spent on your part. Thank you, Bill!
Christie was absolutely wonderful start to finish
Christie was absolutely wonderful start to finish. As a first time homebuyer she was patient in explaining each step of the process and walked us through everything so I felt extremely comfortable every step of the way. Even after closing when we ran into issues, she was quick to continue to help. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her!
The dynamic duo of Kelly & Heather
We have been in our new home for three weeks and loving it! It is all due to the dynamic duo of Kelly and Heather. The pair brings superb customer service, infinite knowledge and are genuinely nice people. With the ability for them to work as a team, they were just a phone call or text away – always available. No question was too big or too small.
Thanks to their willingness to go the extra mile, we were able to get our dream home. They were willing to work outside of their area of expertise (McKinney and Frisco) and show us homes in several locations. One town was an hour away, but they did not hesitate to make the drive. All of their advice and knowledge was spot on, every step of the way, from the first phone call on a Sunday morning to the signing of papers and every undertaking in between.
We have worked with countless real estate agents across the country during our lifetime. Kelly and Heather rank right up at the top! Need to sell your home or in the market to buy? Don’t hesitate to give Kelly or Heather a call. You won’t be let down!
Uzziel was the only one that showed us exactly what we had asked to see
We moved to the Dallas area from out of state and worked with 3 different realtors. Uzziel was the only one that showed us exactly what we had asked to see. In addition to this, he set up appointments at a moment’s notice, something the other realtors weren’t able to do. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a place to live (rent or buy) in the Dallas area above any other realtor. Thanks again Uzziel for the great services you provided!
I have known Bill Fife for over ten years, and quickly began to rely on him for help with my rental needs as well as the purchase of a condo in the bidding wars market
I have known Bill Fife for over ten years, and quickly began to rely on him for help with my rental needs as well as the purchase of a condo in the bidding wars market. He’s also very knowledgeable about all my maintenance and repair questions, and I know that if he doesn’t have the answer, he can steer me in the right direction. I am not surprised that he has launched his own company and is rapidly expanding his business!
She is one of the most diligent, professional and patient folks I have ever met
Christie is an absolute rockstar! She is one of the most diligent, professional and patient folks I have ever met. She was extremely valuable in our recent purchase of a property. If I every buy or sell a property, I know I will use her and would recommend to all my friends and family as well.

Bill has been a game-changer for us in obtaining quality tenants for a range of price points. Super marketing, screening and lease set-up!
I cannot say enough for his sage advice, creativity and savvy. Really takes great care of us.
She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home.
There are no words to describe how thankful we are of Christie. No matter what she made it feel like we were her only clients! She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. She was extremely knowledgeable and very detailed oriented which was very handy since we were first time homebuyers. She took her time to explain every step of the process and ensured we were comfortable moving forward. She truly has your best interest at hand and would recommend her to anyone needing a realtor.
Uzziel’s negotiations skills were key to lock down our new home!
He adapted to our crazy busy schedule and made the process much easier for me and my family, he looked after my family interests. His negotiations skills were key to lock down our new home!
Bill has been a regular “Johnny On The Spot” in handling every aspect of managing the lease on our home
My wife and I decided to travel in our motorhome and needed to lease our home in North Texas. Bill Fife Realty came highly recommended by none other than another real estate company. Bill quickly located a great couple to lease our home. Bill has been a regular “Johnny On The Spot” in handling every aspect of managing the lease on our home. When someone had been in business as long as Bill Fife has, one must be doing something right.
I’d give her 10 gold stars
Couldn’t be more impressed. I am so happy that I went with Christie and left my old realtor. I was so happy the way she listened to my needs and wants and then made sure that I had all the information I needed to be successful in my home purchase. I’d give her 10 gold stars if the program let me.
Uzziel was quick to answer any question me and my wife had
Uzziel was quick to answer any question me and my wife had. He was knowledgeable with the property. He kept me and my wife up to date with every move between the owner and his office. This was a quick and easy process. Im very thrilled to have gotten to work with Uzziel and will be referring friends and family to him. He was kind and patient with this being our first home expierence.
Bill has a wealth of knowledge in every aspect of the real estate business
I’ve worked with Bill Fife for many years. He manages several of the rental properties that I own. Bill has a wealth of knowledge in every aspect of the real estate business. He is very professional and proactive. Bill manages many rental properties for different owners, and he has his real estate broker’s license. This makes him so much more valuable to me as an income property owner and investor because:
- Bill knows and does business with only good quality contractors.
- Bill knows what investment property opportunities are available in the DFW area.
- Bill knows lenders and sellers who are eager to work with income property owners.
- Bill knows the formula necessary to make for a successful income property.
- Bill knows it’s critical to take care of owner and renter issues ASAP.
Because of his extensive property management experience and background, he has invaluable, inside knowledge that no other ordinary real estate agent could ever have access to. These are only a few of the reasons why Bill Fife is my “go to” guy for all of my investment property needs. If anyone would ever like to talk to me personally about experience with Bill, I encourage them to call me at 972-841-2547.
Christie helped me purchase my dream home recently and made the entire process a total breeze!
Christie helped me purchase my dream home recently and made the entire process a total breeze! She is an ethical and hard working agent, and her attention to detail is incredible. She negotiated a great deal for me, and then walked me through every step of the process. Attentive! Professional! Knowledgable! I strongly recommend her for any and all of your real estate needs!
Uzziel me ayudó para la compra de mi casa
Uzziel me ayudó para la compra de mi casa. Me ayudó a conseguir el préstamo a un interés muy bajo y también consiguió que el vendedor pagará $3,000.00 de mis gastos de cierre. Lo recomiendo a cualquier persona que quiera comprar una casa por primera vez.
Bill Fife was a real lifesaver
Bill Fife was a real lifesaver. I moved from Texas to California with only two weeks to pack up and move. After I left Texas, Bill inspected the upgrades to my condo, suggested some changes, had the unit cleaned, and rented it out all within a month. For the next two years until I sold the property, the unit was always occupied. He handled any tenant calls and scheduled all repairs, and the rent was always deposited right on time. An added bonus was that he was able to sell my unit when the time came. I cannot recommend Bill Fife and Associates highly enough.
We recommended Christie Kocurek to family and they had the same amazing experience
Christie helped us lease the home at a great price. She was very patient and professional even when our search criteria changed many times. She would send us the listing with our new requirements and was able to find the house that we all love. She has great knowledge and attention to detail. We recommended her to family and they had the same amazing experience. She will definitely be our realtor when we will buy our home!
Uzziel was amazing to work with!
Uzziel was amazing to work with! It was our first time buying a home and he was very knowledgeable about the process and each individual home we saw. He always had time for us and responded to our matters quickly. Uzziel was with us every step of the way, guiding us through the process and helping us to get the best at each step. We felt as though he took as much interest in our home-buying journey as he would with his own home!
Bill was knowledgeable, flexible, and incredibly responsive
My Mother hired Bill as a property manager in March. As a new landlord and unfamiliar with the leasing process, Bill was knowledgeable, flexible, and incredibly responsive to every request from us, as well as the tenant. Bill did a fantastic job of selecting a qualified tenant, which has made the entire experience seamless. Additionally, because my Mom had such a great experience leasing her home, my husband and I recently hired Bill to lease our home. He found qualified tenants within only a couple of days of having our property on the market in McKinney. If you are considering leasing your home, I think you’ll find that Bill will exceed your expectations.
Christie knew the market extremely well and always gave us great advice
Christie is extremely knowledgeable and helped us through this process with our best interests in mind. She is very approachable and friendly, and we felt comfortable with her right away. Christie knew the market extremely well and always gave us great advice. We made a quick decision that we wanted to place an offer on a home, and she worked quickly to put together a competitive offer. She’s professional, responsible and very responsive. It was a pleasure working with her.
Uzziel has been the best realtor I’ve ever worked with
On Saturday 3/5/16, I met up with Uzziel Valdiviezo at one of his properties in North Dallas within the sophisticated Bent Tree neighborhood. This 2 bed/1.5 bath rental condo was all I had envisioned. I had searched for a place about 2 months and would not settle. I wanted a place that I would immediately fall in love with. I was mainly looking for a gated community in a prestigious and safe neighborhood, privacy, space/storage, townhouse style, washer/dryer included, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, French style stainless steel fridge with bottom freezer, and upgraded/modern look.
Uzziel has been the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. He ensured that I get exactly what I wanted. He is very informative, patient, and honest. He took his time to answer all my questions. Most importantly, he responded to my emails and phone calls almost immediately even on weekends and after hours. I plan on working with Uzziel when I am ready to buy my first house. He is dedicated to what he does and to you as a customer as well.
He had it sold in a matter of days. I highly recommend Bill!
I worked with Bill for two years. I moved to Washington State and asked Bill to manage my condo since the market was not good, and I wanted a professional to rent and oversee it. Bill was on top of everything, found a very good renter within a couple of weeks. Anytime the renter had a problem, he responded and let me know right away. He contacted someone to fix the problem and sent me all paperwork. When the market was better I decided to sell the condo, and he had it sold in a matter of days. I highly recommend Bill in any endeavor he pursues.
Christie is my go-to girl for all my real estate needs!!
Christie is my go-to girl for all my real estate needs!! Having worked with her for a second round, I can assure you she is the absolute best at what she does. She is proactive and always one step ahead of everyone involved in the process which creates a feeling of effortlessness from the search to the closing table. She is not only knowledgeable and super detail-oriented , but it is evident that she truly has your best interest at heart. There is so much peace of mind because nothing gets past her. When working with her you literally don’t have to think about a thing and that peace of mind is PRICELESS! I cannot recommend her highly enough!!
Uzziel was great to have working for me
Uzziel was great to have working for me. Team player. He went above and beyond what most agents I have dealt with in the past are willing to do. Me and my family were in a bind and we needed to find a rental quickly. Uzziel was able to locate for us a great home for my family within days. We have signed the agreements and we are getting ready to move in.
I highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for an excellent property manager
I met Bill in 2009 when we both worked for the same broker. Word around the office was he was the property management guru. I owned several rental houses and I needed an agent to list one for me. When I met him at my house to get it ready to list we did a few of the typical realtor ‘do it this way, no… do it that way’ go rounds. Then when we went outside I asked Bill why he put the For Lease sign the way he did. He started to laugh and said….”we just had our first real Realtor squabble.” That was so funny I knew right then I was going to love working with him. He’s truly amazing.
He can rent out a house in a day after he does a walk through and quickly tells me what all does and doesn’t need to be fixed to lease it. He oversees all repairs and the final clean up before he lists the houses. He’s got a great team of vendors who are dedicated to him and will fix whatever needs to be fixed as soon as possible and they do excellent work. He charges me exactly what his vendors charge him which is not the norm in his line of business. Bill believes in passing on the great discounts his vendors give him to his clients.
We had to relocate to Austin and he became the property manager for all our houses including the house we left when we moved. Our dream house. Once he took over, he raised the rents on the houses to where they should have been. One of our houses he completely remodeled for us and got several hundred dollars more a month for rent. Not once did I go and check out what he did to the house, which is how much I trust him. He will do what has to be done with tenants even if it is unpleasant. And there were plenty of unpleasant situations going on with our houses when he took them over, which he remedied. After that everything went smoothly.
He does intense background checks on all applicants and did not once put a tenant in to any of our houses that was not a good tenant. He is currently overseeing and making the design decisions on many items needing to be done in our dream house which we are currently preparing to rent out again. He knows how much I love that house as we plan on retiring there. He’s doing a beautiful job on our house. After 6 years of working together we have also become friends and I always enjoy doing business with him. I highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for an excellent property manager for their properties.
Christie Kocurek was consistently available and her follow-up is incredibly timely
Christie always knows the right thing to do, a source of wisdom and direction. A true partner that represents true north better than a compass. There are not enough words to express how much Christie has helped my husband and I from the time we relocated from Atlanta to Dallas and up till the moment we bought our home. She still continues to check on us often to ask how we are doing and settling in our new home. Having known Christie for a couple of years now, she also helped both my brother and sister to buy their new homes in the Dallas market. Christie is a true believer in Treat Others as We Would Like to be Treated. My daughter is also planning to buy her home, and she will also be contacting Christie. I cannot thank her enough for her support and sincerity over the past couple of years. Last but not the least, Christie was consistently available and her follow-up is incredibly timely. Thank you.
Uzziel me ayudo a comprar mi casa
Uzziel me ayudo a comprar mi casa, es un agente que siempre estuvo al tanto de todo el proceso de los papeles, es una persona a la cual le doy las gracias por toda su ayuda.
[Working with Bill] was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a property owner
I was trying to “long distance” manage my property and was stuck with a horrible renter. I contacted Bill Fife who agreed to manage my property for a very reasonable fee. Within 48 hours he not only had that tenant gone, but he had a new one who wanted to sign a multi year lease. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a property owner who lives out of state.
We have had a wonderful experience working with Christie
We have had a wonderful experience working with Christie, who helped us buy our home. During this process, we had to reach out to Christie several times and would always get her response promptly, when she would take the time to explain in detail and put our fears to rest. Buying a house is a challenging process, where you are sometimes you have to dance in the rain, but Christie will always be standing with an umbrella to protect you.
Uzziel remembers all of your requirements when showing new homes and has been very responsive in the bidding process
Mr. Valdiviezo has been assisting my family in finding a new home. We have used several realtors in the past but he goes far above the standards we are accustomed to because is quite knowledgeable about the DFW area. He remembers all of your requirements when showing new homes and has been very responsive in the bidding process, which is very important in this current industry.
Bill brought in several reliable buyers and closed the deal within a month
Bill was my Property Manager for my property at Wylie, TX for a period of one and half years. I left the management of my property in the capable hands of Bill and I was at peace. He took care of collecting the rental fee, transferring the rental fee directly to my bank account and took care of all the repairs of my home during the rental period.
He also proved to be a good listing agent when I sold this property in Wylie. He listed promptly with all the disclosures, brought in several reliable buyers and closed the deal within a month! I will recommend Bill as a very reliable and smart real estate agent to anyone who is looking for one.
I highly recommend Christie for her work ethic and transparency
I was looking for a house to rent with two roommates and I was fortunate enough to come across Christie. Christie helped introduce us to the North Dallas area, and worked very hard on finding out what we were looking for in a home/location. She sent us houses for rent that matched our preferences daily, and she was always available and on time. I highly recommend her for her work ethic and transparency (she was clearly looking out for all parties, wanted what was best for everybody).
Muy amable y listo para ayudarte todo el tiempo
Muy amable y listo para ayudarte todo el tiempo ha sido mi mejor agente teniendo en cuenta q es mi 3 agente este en vedad a sido rl mejor siempre atento y con la mejor cordialidad so pensarlo dos veces!!
Because of Bill Fife, I found the home of my dreams!!
It was such a pleasure working with Bill! As a first time home buyer, I learned quickly the home buying process can be overwhelming but Bill held my hand the entire time and made sure I felt as comfortable as possible. I had dealt with different realtors before finding Bill and most of them took days/weeks to return calls, if they returned them at all. With Bill, I knew I could call, text or email him with any questions or concerns I had and he would get right back to me. I really appreciate his hard work and dedication. Because of him I found the home of my dreams!! Thank you Bill and the entire Fife Team! You guys are awesome!!
Christie is attentive, knowledgeable, ethical, diligent, and a joy to work with
Christie helped me SELL my first home and then gracefully walked me through the process to BUY my second home. She was always available when I needed questions answered and she went out of her way to get me exactly what I wanted at closing on BOTH sides of the table. She made the house buying process (dare I say it) fun. She is attentive, knowledgeable, ethical, diligent, and a joy to work with.
Uzziel went above and beyond to make sure the transition from out of state went smoothly
Relocated to Texas from out of state. Original realtor hired fell through, and with very limited time to view homes for rent, Uzziel quickly set up appointments at a moments notice, and provided lists of houses in the area that met all of our needs while staying within our budget. Uzziel went above and beyond to make sure the transition from out of state went smoothly. He took care of tasks that we could not complete out of state with such a positive and genuine attitude. Uzziel has continued to check in on us and has ensured all our expectations have been met. I would recommend Uzziel to anyone and will definitely be using him in the future.
Whether you are looking to buy, to sell, or need management for a rental property you own, Bill Fife is the best there is
It is with great pleasure, without any reservation or qualification, that my husband and I recommend Bill Fife to anyone who has any need for expert assistance with any aspect of real estate ownership or transactions. Whether you are looking to buy, to sell, or need management for a rental property you own, Bill Fife is the best there is.
I first came to know Bill when I leased a condominium that he managed. Over the several years that I lived in that property, Bill always made sure to have any repair issues taken care of immediately, and I know that if he had needed to, he would have aggressively seen to it that I upheld my end of the bargain. The truth is, I was a “dream tenant” — the kind of person that pays the rent on time, every month.
Bill has been managing rental properties for years, and he has an army of repair specialists that he can call upon for repairs. Those repair specialists respond immediately to his call, because they know how much business Bill has to refer to them, over time, and they know that if they don’t respond quickly to his call, or if they don’t effect the repairs well the first time, they’ll end up eliminated from Bill’s list. Bill ensures that the property owner keeps a happy tenant, and his property properly maintained, without having to deal with the headaches of inspecting, calling the right person, and scheduling the repairs.
As the years went by, my fiancé and I began to look for the perfect home that we might eventually want to buy together. We were in no rush. In fact, we started looking at homes for sale before we were even engaged. Bill went so far above and beyond the call, meeting with us on many Saturdays, and spent the day looking at different houses that were on the market, sometimes seeing as many as 18 homes in one day. Although Bill knew we were not ready to buy yet, he was more than accommodating, and spent many hours, over many months, making the appointments for us to see many houses. The result of spending all that time with us was that Bill came to know our tastes, to know our priorities, and worked diligently to show us houses that fit within our price range, and offered the qualities we were looking for.
Then one day Bill called with the exciting news that he had found our house! He had managed to get a preview of the home on the day before it went on the market. He called us on Friday night and told us what the asking price was, and he recommended that we not even look at it unless we were ready to buy, because this house had literally everything we had been looking for and was “turnkey ready” for move in. In addition, as it turned out, he accurately predicted that it would sell on the first day it was on the market, for the seller’s asking price. He had run the numbers and figured out what the lowest possible figure was as an acceptable offer from the owner/seller’s standpoint, but if we were interested, we should get together with him early the next morning.
Saturday morning we went with Bill to see our house (along with two other prospective buyers who were there with us), and Bill’s glowing descriptions were not adequate to describe how truly perfect this house was. He was right; he had found “our house.” Following his advice, we tendered our offer, which was one of three offers the seller received that afternoon.
Bill is so much more than just a realtor. He is the best realtor there is in the Dallas area, due to his many years of experience and his knowledge of the market. The reality is that we didn’t just do business with a realtor; we made a new, dear friend in Bill. Long after the business was over, we continue to count Bill as a special friend. We’ve been to dinners with him, and we have included him for a July 4th BBQ at our home — the home we never would have found, if it hadn’t been for the extra hours he dedicated to getting to know us and watching the market for new properties. Only because he put so much effort into caring that he found our dream house for us, we were poised to be the first in line to view our home that first morning that it was on the market. We submitted our offer that afternoon, and by about 7PM, we had the news that our offer had been accepted. Less than a month later we were in our new home, entertaining extended family for Thanksgiving. None of this would have happened with just any realtor, but Bill made it happen due to his passion, and he did it all while still scheduling showings for other buyers, managing expectations wisely for both buyers and sellers, and managing all of the rental properties he was in charge of. After all, we were certainly not Bill’s only clients, and he had yet to see one dime of profit from all of the work he was dedicating to us. Our dream only became true because of Bill Fife.
Not a day has gone by since that my husband and I don’t say to ourselves and each other, how lucky we are to have had Bill on our side. We count our blessings every single day as we deal with the traffic of Dallas during our commute to and from work, but once we arrive home, we say, “I love our home.”
Our daily happiness with our home is all entirely due to Bill Fife. I highly recommend, I implore you, before you go down that road with someone else and hope that you’ll wind up happy, to instead give Bill Fife a call and meet with him. He is a rare breed, because he genuinely cares about making sure his clients are happy at the end of the road. His sincere passion is equaled only by his energy.
Bill never once pushed us to buy something that wasn’t perfect. In fact, there were many times that he pointed out faults that his expert eye detected, which were invisible to our uneducated eyes. It was abundantly clear that he wanted us to be happy, and that was his number one priority, not just wanting us to buy something so he could get that commission check. His commission would come, he knew, by working with us, but I honestly believe that was not as important to him as it was to have us be happy with our home. He patiently took the time to know us, to know our “must haves”, and in the end, he not only produced the perfect home for us, but he created lifelong friendships. If you don’t put your trust in Bill to produce for you, you might even end up satisfied with your purchase. However, you’ll never know what it’s like to have the very best working for you, and there will always be days when you’ll wonder how much happier you could have been, if you’d put your trust in Bill Fife!
Christie was awesome to work with and I recommend her 100%!
My son and I actually had the pleasure of working with Christie on the selling and buying side of the fence recently. I had finally made my mind up to sell my house in Keller about a year after first contacting Christie. She made the sales process very easy and did an excellent job providing me with the market analysis, local comps and negotiating the sale. My house sold in two days! On the buying side, our experience with Christie just got better. My son and I had very specific needs/wants in our new home and Christie worked very diligently to find what we were looking for in a very tight market. We probably looked a nearly 20 homes over a period of a month and Christie never got frustrated with us. In fact she would always remind us that we should not get discouraged and just settle on something we ultimately might not be happy with. That was a great feeling to know we were working with a realtor that cared about what we wanted. And it paid off! We found the right house in Denton with a great view from the backyard and an awesome pool! Thanks Christie! Christie was awesome to work with and I recommend her 100%!
Uzziel is amazing, and he really will do whatever it takes to help you!
Uzziel is amazing and he really will do whatever it takes to help you! If you make him your realtor he will find you a home. He’s been extremely helpful even after the process is over! He has helped me figure out what is, and what isn’t in our current contact. Uzziel was even kind enough to drive me around house to house when we were looking. He knew a lot about each property and what and wasn’t allowed. I would highly recommend Uzziel! Hopefully he’ll be in the same area when it comes to finding a new home in the future!
I would highly recommend Bill Fife to anyone for all of their real estate needs
My wife Deanna and I first met Bill Fife when we were first moving to Dallas and we were looking to rent a home while we searched for one to purchase. We rented a home through his firm and found his property management to be excellent and his online portal very easy to use. Requested services were handled very promptly. He was always there personally by phone or email if needed. We told him that when we were ready to search for and purchase a home, we would be calling and we did.
Bill showed us no less than 60 homes over the course of a month. He was very efficient with the process and would many times have 12 or more homes lined up back to back in one day. He was extremely knowledgeable of the Dallas area and market and was able to guide us into the right area for us. Once we got a home under contract, he had loan processors, inspectors , title company folks all lined up to efficiently take us through the process until closing. He is just extremely knowledgeable, efficient and professional. I am relocating 10-12 employees to the Dallas area and I have recommended Fife and Associates to all of them for their rental or buying needs. He can handle it all as he did for us. I have been involved in many, many real estate transactions and I would highly recommend him to anyone for all of their real estate needs, whether buying or selling.
Christie Kocurek was a life saver, always made herself available, and made me feel valued as a customer even though it was only lease
I first met Christie when I was trying to find a home to lease in a short amount of time. I was out of town dealing with a family emergency, and I had a hard time getting other realtors to call me back. I had the feeling that because it was a lease, most realtors were not interested. Christie listened to my needs and was able to find a place for me and advocate on my behalf when I was out of town. She was a life saver, always made herself available, and made me feel valued as a customer even though it was only lease. She’s a consummate professional and willing to go the extra mile for her clients. I have recommended her to family and friends without reservation and will be using her services when it’s time to buy.

Bill Fife… always professional, responsible, reliable, smart and witty
My husband and I have known and worked with Bill Fife for over 13 years. He was our property manager at a rent house in Plano and helped us find and purchase our first home together. And now we come full circle. Bill is currently selling our home in Allen as we move away. It has been a challenge at times but the magic he has worked has been amazing to watch. Always professional, responsible, reliable, smart and witty. I could go one and on. Bill Fife is and always will be our Realtor of choice.
Bill has kept it rented for me the entire time with excellent tenants
I have owned my small condo for 12 years and Bill has kept it rented for me the entire time with excellent tenants. I have also recommended Bill to friends and family that have property to rent. If anyone ask me about renting my place, I won’t answer any questions. I tell them they have to go through Bill.
Bill is an expert negotiator and master creator of opportunity!
I wanted to give a personal testimony for my client and business associate, Bill Fife. He and I have worked together steadily for over 5 years and regularly close several transactions a month together. As a Broker, he lists and sells Real Estate and we close and insure these transactions. Obviously, this description is oversimplification and the reality is, Bill is an expert negotiator and master creator of opportunity! He is a top notch problem solver, thinks outside the box and will always work honestly and ethically on every aspect of the real estate transaction. He also has the ability to zero in on potential problems and offer solutions before they become bigger issues, which is a rare quality in our business.
Together, we have successfully helped many Sellers, Buyers and Investors navigate the rough waters of a tough real estate transaction. Bill has finessed many a difficult situation into a win/win for everybody and it is a joy and pleasure to witness the master at work. As a title professional for over thirty five years, I have literally closed thousands of real estate transactions in my career and without a doubt, Bill Fife stands head and shoulders above his competition. As a result, he has my referrals and most of all, my utmost respect.
Bill added more $$ directly to our bottom line
My wife and I own 4 rental homes. Just before we met Bill Fife, we were about to give up on being landlords. We had a terrible experience getting bad renters, and the properties would stay vacant for 1-3 months between tenants as we repaired the last tenants damages and tried to find new, quality tenants. We were referred to Bill Fife by a friend. Our first thought was ‘oh great, another expense’. But after meeting with Bill, and especially after signing up with him and experiencing his services for 3 months, we were sold. We’ve hardly ever have a vacancy between tenants of more than a week or two. This alone more than pays for his services when you compare our vacancy periods of 1-3 months. Bill also adjusted our monthly rents to reflect market rates, and that added more $$ directly to our bottom line.
Bill is firm but fair with the tenants. We rarely experience late rent payments. Bill is sharp, on time, returns calls, and does what he says he will do. Our life as landlords went from a nightmare to something we enjoy, and we’re now looking to add more properties. I would recommend Bill highly to anyone looking to improve their life as property owners/landlords.
Don’t settle for a good realtor – get the best, Bill Fife!
I first met Bill when I came to see a property he had for lease, and as of then we started doing business. At that time, I expressed my future intentions of purchasing my own place. Needless to say, Bill found me the right place and the best of deals. I can’t stop singing his praises and recommending him to my friends. Don’t settle for a good realtor – get the best, BILL FIFE!
Mr. Fife is extremely thorough and meticulous
I have worked with Bill Fife for over 4 years, and I must say it has been an absolute pleasure. I was referred to Mr. Fife by my cousin, and she had nothing but great things to say about him. Everything she said about Mr. Fife was absolutely correct.
Let me explain to you why Bill is such an incredible realtor. Mr. Fife is extremely thorough and meticulous in selling and managing properties. His expertise, knowledge, and timing in the market have proven to be very accurate and valuable.
Bill not only became my realtor but has proven to be a friend as well. I highly recommend Bill Fife for all of your real estate needs. He will certainly help you achieve your goals and much more.
Bill responds quickly to solve any problem
Bill Fife is a terrific property manager. He has successfully managed our first property for four years, and that is what motivated us to purchase another property for him to manage. Bill responds quickly to solve any problem. He communicates clearly, so we always know what is going on with our properties. We highly recommend Bill Fife to anyone looking for a property manager.
