    My Client Testimonials

    "We tried to sell our property using other realtors for seven years. No one could sell it but Bill did." Eugene Holmes Lindale tx (Seller)
    "Bill is fairly new to the real estate market, but he was very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and if there was something he didnt know or was not familiar with he got help from other I20 team members. He was a pleasure to work with, very accessible , and polite. His video of my house and property was incredible. My house sold within one week!" Jill Bond, Hideaway Lake (Seller) 10 months ago
    "Every single dealing I 've had with I20 Realty gets better and better. They are professional at marketing and selling in this area. I have recommended them and will continue to do so. Bills marketing sold my house in 45 minutes. Can't get easier than that. Even on a Sunday Bill Childress would answer his phone and answer any question I had. Thats excellent service . He never made me feel like I was bothering him about the small things. I consider Bill Childress my friend and my one and only real estate agent." Rhonda & John Crosby (Seller) 10 months ago
    "Bill has the knowledge, experience, and patience to correctly market property. He has the ability to "think outside the box" and shares these thoughts with you. He utilizes many resources other than the classic old school approach to ensure that the property was before the eyes of prospective buyers. He is backed by an outstanding team at I-20 with many years of experience and commitment to the community. I would, have, and will continue to recommend the I-20 team to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Hideaway / Lindale area." Don Miller - Hideaway, TX (Seller)
    "Bill is very diligent and professional in his dealings with us. He was prompt on answering questions and/or obtaining information on the property. Very Satisfied." Don Miller - Hideaway, TX (Buyer) about a year ago
    "Each time we went by or called the Hideaway office the office staff was pleasant and helpful. Bill was very personable and we always enjoyed our conversations with him. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us excellent advice during the negotiations process. He made our purchase and closing a seamless hassle free procedure. We would definitely call on Bill again should we need realty services in the future." The Sharps (Buyer) about a year ago
    "Couldnt have asked for a better agent! Bill you rock." Cassie Dunn, Hideaway, Texas (Seller) about a year ago
    "Bill Childress listened to what my wife and I wanted. He was willing to take us to all of the houses we thought we might be interested in. When he saw us struggling in our decision, he helped guide us in a direction he thought we might be interested in. Since he listened to our requirements, he knew exactly where to take us. The only reason we didn't make an offer on the first house he showed us was it didn't have enough yard for me. We jumped on the second one and never looked back. Buying a house is a difficult process. Bill could tell when we were struggling and played the role of counselor to take the edge off. When we just needed to see the house we made an offer on, he was always willing to take the time to let us see it one more time. I am very grateful we found Bill as an agent, and would highly recommend him to my friends." Danny Tabb (Buyer) 2 years ago
    "Bill took the time to understand what we needed and were looking for in a home. He is so patient and so knowledgeable. We were so blessed to get to work with him and we have found our realtor. I HIGHLY recommend Bill Childress and the I-20 Team. They are the best." Jon Frank, Rockwall, TX (Buyer) 2 years ago
    This is our 4th dealing with I-20 Real Estate . However our first with Bill Childress which we enjoyed so much we are letting him list a house we are wanting to sell. Personal service was excellent. My husband and I consider Bill a friend now , not just someone we did business with." John & Rhonda Crosby Ben Wheeler ,Texas (Buyer) 2 years ago
    "Bill Childress was patient, knowledgeable and fun to work with." Nicole Fowler (Buyer) 2 years ago
    "He was awesome in every respect." Alan Patton (Buyer) 2 years ago
    "My husband and I purchased a home in Hideaway and Bill Childress from I-20 Realty was our agent. After looking at 3 or 4 homes, Bill had a good idea of what we were looking for and took us to see the home that we purchased. In actuality we were not planning on buying for another couple of years when we both retire. We both really liked the home and we made an offer on the spot. Bill followed up on every detail and was available to answer our calls at all times. He was truly OUR agent in this process and we felt very comfortable with him. I would recommend Bill to anyone purchasing a home in the Lindale/Hideaway area." Chris and Candace Moseley, Springtown, TX (Buyer) 3 years ago
    "Bill was very helpful and pleasant to work with. He was very patient no matter how many times I wanted to view a house. He was always available to meet me whenever I needed. He was also very knowledgeable with regards to the process of buying and selling a home. Bill grew up in Hideaway, therefore he was very familiar with the area . I would use Bill again and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Hideaway or the Lindale area." David Head Hideaway, Texas (Buyer) 3 years ago
    We have tried buying a house over and over again through the past 2 years and something would always come up that would be totally out of our control. Bill has been by our side through the whole ups and downs. He told us from day one that its not an easy process at times but just keep the faith and when the right property/home came up everything would work out like it was meant to be. Today, our dreams of being homeowners has finally come true! Thank you Bill for everything you have done to help make this possible!!! Jerry Burns 11 Months ago
    Bill has been very helpful and patient showing us houses and we look forward to finishing the hunt with him. Kenneth Williams 11 months ago
    Our whole experience with Bill has been extremely easy. His knowledge and expertise with the process is unmatched. We have had a Realator before that just went through the motions but was not involved. Since the first time we met, he made us feel welcome. I feel that I have made a friend. As we toured homes, he gave us his opinion on the homes , pros and cons. Bottom line is that I highly recommend Bill and if ever I need a realtor Bill will be my choice and anyone that asked for a realtor Bill will be who I recommend. Carnes Family 2/29/2020
    Bill was awesome to work with. He was able to work with us as we navigated issues along the way that had nothing to do with him. He is knowledgeable on all things Lindale and helped us out tremendously. He is always available to take your call. Deann Evans 8/15/2019
