I have known William Durfee since 2012. He has always been very professional and helpful in every detail. He sold to me a condo at the Regatta. William has an extraordinary capacity of perceive the needs to show the correct property. He has also leased a property for several years and he is always on top of everything. He is an expertly dealing with the renewal of the lease and/or finding a new tenant. I am very pleased with all the advisory I have received from William.

Shaman W. sold a home in Marina del Rey

William is awesome. He sold my family the property originally before the building was even built back in 1999, and twenty years later he sold it again. My only regret was not listing the property with him in the first place.

Stephen I. sold a home in Marina del Rey

We decided to work with William after we realized that the "other" agent we chose was unable to get the job of selling our Marina Del Rey Condo. William is the expert in MDR high-rise condos, His greatest strength is how he shows a property and how he properly qualifies a buyer prior to a showing. William knows the values, comps, market and works extremely well with the agents, We could not be happier with the results...... bottom line is that William is the reason that we sold for top dollar in Marina del Rey.

Bruce J. bought a home in Marina del Rey

My wife and I have been looking for just the right condo for the past 18 months. William Durfee and his team have been right there the entire time, alerting us to new condos coming on the market, helping us determine what a good value is, finding us the right location. We finally found just what we have been looking for, and the Durfee team helped us through the difficult negotiation process with a very difficult seller. They also got us through the paperwork process quite easily. This is a team that really worked on our behalf. Needless to say, we are quite pleased with our new home. Thanks William and all the supporting cast.

Christina A. sold a home in Venice

We just sold our unit last month with William, and if i have to do the process all over again, i would still pick him as the agent. He was involved from the very beginning, answered all my questions, requests and helped me through with the renovations of the unit and he did it all with friendliness and i would never feel like i couldn't ask him of something. most of all, since i live outside the US, he made the process easy and handle it with such professionalism. from the offer, counter offer, escrow, closing and all, he made sure everything went smoothly from 9000 miles away. he updated us with every details that's going on and our unit sold in less than a month. Again, thank you William, been a pleasure working with you.

Mark S. sold a home in Venice

I would add another star to the rating based on my experience! My husband and I can't say enough about this realtor, William Durfee, along with his amazing team! We recently listed & sold our Marina del Rey apartment. We were given straight forward facts about how the marketing, the value & list price, the repairs, how the staging and process would go. We were told what to expect with regard to the market climate and how long to expect a possible sale. It was a matter of faith & trust we placed in Mr. Durfee and his experience & confidence did not fail us. He exceeded our expectations. From start to finish, we were guided by his assistant, Mirela, who sent many DocuSign papers which enabled us to simply sign official papers from our iPhones & computers making it a breeze. We had some papers to notarize, but the experience could not have been easier through the electronic process.

Fabricia H. sold a home in Marina del Rey

William is very professional, prompt, organized and, most of all, he goes the extra mile to make sure his clients are comfortable and at ease with the process. He keeps the process simple and realistic from the beginning. He gave me an honest assessment of the real estate market and a likely timeframe for when to expect to have my condo rented. That helped remove any unrealistic expectations and make it much easier to deal with. Since I was out of town for the entire process, William was also great to deal with as he was very flexible in his schedule in order to be available to all the prospective tenants. Added to that was his in-depth knowledge of the building and all it had to offer. Most of all, he was great at helping me negotiate the rental terms in a way that worked for both parties, creating a win-win situation.

Harold B. bought a home in Marina del Rey

My wife and I were referred to Mr. Durfee. He helped us find an apartment meeting our needs and desires in the building we were interested in. This was quite an accomplishment given that the building is high end in a sought after location. Once we decided we wanted the apartment he helped us in many ways. First, he negotiated a considerable discount in the price. He then connected us with an appropriate mortgage lender. There are many aspects to purchasing such an apartment, and Mr. Durfee was always available to help in meaningful ways. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. The process was quite involved and Mr. Durfee was there for us. He was a pleasure to work with. We cannot imagine a better real estate professional.

Patricia S. bought a home in Venice

William Durfee is an absolute five star agent. Transactions with him both on behalf of my clients as well as for purchases for myself have been at the highest possible level. His approach to real estate is excellent in every way --- a fully knowledgeable agent, responsive, outstanding at negotiation and 100% responsive!
