Testimonials

"I recently purchased an 8 unit commercial property in Albany, with the help of Bill Hamel and I could not be happier.  Due to Bill’s experience in commercial property management, he was able to find the exact income property I was looking for, at a price that was well under market value.  This is the 3rd time Bill has successfully assisted me in a real estate transaction and I foresee many more on the horizon.  Thank you Bill and I look forward to our next purchase."

I began my apartment hunt in Albany by browsing Craigslist. After seeing a number of places that were small, dark, or flat out not the apartment advertised online, I came across Hamel Real Estate’s website. My roommate and I met with Bill and he showed us two apartments in our price range. When we decided to go ahead and take one of them, Bill helped us to negotiate a lower rent with the property owner. They accepted our offer and a few days later we signed our lease. Bill was helpful in our search, responsive to our requests as tenants, and made the move out process simple, returning 100% of our security two weeks after we moved out. I would recommend Hamel Real Estate to anyone looking for a great property in Center Square.

"I just wanted to say thank you very much for fixing the parking lot holes.  They were indeed a major concern of mine, as well, I'm sure, for many other customers.  It is a much smoother ride now, going in and out of the lot, because of this.
So thanks very much for taking the time to do this.  It means a lot to me and I'm sure to all residents.
Thanks again, and a pleasure being your customer."

"Thank you for being an excellent landlord the past two years.  We will really miss the carriage house."

"I want to thank you for being the best landlord that we have ever had!  It's so nice to be able to call a Landlord with an issue and get immediate results.  When the roadwork was being done in front of our home in Troy and we had our doors kicked in by the Gas Company, your maintenance man was right there to fix them and ensure our security and safety.  I appreciate that you allow us to have our pet and encourage a pet friendly company.  It's also very refreshing to see our Landlord fixing issues and coming out to see how we are and actually caring about tenants and their personal welfare.  I have to admit that the whole time we have leased with you that is has truly impressed me.  Most Landlords don't make time to do this.  Bill and the Hamel Team I want to thank you again for all that you do for us and your positive customer service."

"Thank you Billy for helping Linds and I through the process of buying our first home. Thank you for answering all of my questions and explaining everything.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise too. But most importantly, THANK YOU for looking out for Lindsy and me!  We can't wait for your to see the house after we finish all of the work.  Thank you for all your help in one of the largest things we will do in our lives."

"My experience in doing business with Bill Hamel can best be described as positive.  As a first time home buyer, he was very helpful to me in many ways.  Bill educated me in the home buying process.  He recommended to me people with whom he did business, a home inspector, a mortgage broker, etc.  This was a big help because I really had no idea in which direction to go.  Thank you, Bill.  I really appreciate the small touches, the gift card and the mums.  That giving back was nice.  I have recommended Bill's services to others and will continue to do so in the future.  Not only that but any real estate business I have in the future in the capital district will be with Hamel Real Estate.  As a fellow self employed individual, I respect all that it takes in order to compete with the big boys.  I guess I'll see you in the future when the time comes for me to either buy or sell a piece of property here in the capital district.  Till then, take care Bill."
