Testimonials

Will consummately blends his extensive market knowledge and attention to detail with keeping things simple and in a lay-person’s terms. His skill, confidence and familiarity with all aspects of the process ensured that my home purchase as convenient and effortless as possible. I will no doubt use his expertise again and I unequivocally recommend others do the same.Tom Peirce
I have known Will for over 15 years. We met while working for an organization that teaches people with disabilities to ski. I agree with the previous testimonials that are singing his praises, and I would add loyal and conscientious. He truly cares about treating people right and standing by friends.Jason Schetter
Will was a real treat to work with…professional, experienced and he sold our home the first weekend it was on the market. We had a difficult buyer and if it wasn’t for Will “talking me off the ledge” a number of times, I’m sure I would have blown the sale. He’s calm and cool under pressure and made selling our home easy. Thanks Will.Christie Walker
We have used Will on several properties and have found him & his staff to be very knowledgeable & courteous to me and our staff. Closings go smoothly which we like very much and Will & Nicki follow up with escrow to make sure there are no loose ends. We are happy, satisfied clients!Portia Frost
I have known Will for over 20 years. You will not find a real estate professional with more integrity, honesty and knowledge of the Big Bear area than Will. He is the first person I call when I need investment advice and/or have questions about real estate.Paul Skip Sjoberg
I’m writing this letter to let you know how pleased we were about Tarl’s caring attitude. Tarl exceeded our expectations. He took time to find out our needs & knew which homes we’d like to see. He gave us his personal knowledge of the area including restaurants, activities & winterization. We feel Tarl is a great person and cares for people’s needs. Thank you!Juan & Irma Orozco
Lisa, John & I have bought and sold over ten properties with eight different real estate people. You by far exceed them all in every way. You simply are the best and a wonderful person.  John & Karen Schofield
Will was a pleasure to work with!Travis Martinez
Thank you very much! We had a wonderful experience of buying land with Tarl Wood. He provided excellent services and he was always prompt, helpful and informative. I would not hesitate to recommend Tarl’s services to anyone we know. We also loved the easiness & convenience of signing all documents online.Glenn & Vera Savage
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Rahill Team, especially Rick & Lisa Seifert. At first the sale of our cabin seemed like a daunting task. Rick & his wife dug in and helped us prioritize what needed to be done.  They were constructive….never pushy. We were amazed at the difference de-cluttering made.  Rick patiently helped us through each step of the process.  The last time we entered an escrow was in 1992. The computer made it easier in so many ways …Dan & Delayne Stotts
I decided to sell my house in Big Bear, so I contacted a few realtors.  After looking at Will’s marketing plan to sell my house and his realistic evaluation of the market value of my house, I decided to list my house with Will’s team.  Other realtors gave me decent evaluations, but no one had such a strong marketing plan as Will’s team.   Within a week after it hit the multiples, I received a strong offer.  After brief counter offers the property was put into escrow.  …James Evans
Will never quits and keeps looking for the best possible outcome. Thanks to Will’s integrity, tenacity, and compassion, we were able to sell a family home.Lisa L. Magnuson
Will was very good to work with.  He was knowledgeable, about the market, candid about the process, reliable in his communication.  I recommend him.Rob Drew
Will, we had heard your real estate team was great, but now I can say firsthand I know why your company is considered the top real estate group in Big Bear.  I am someone who owns a service business, and did specialized studies in service delivery in graduate school. I really value great service. I am serious when I say that Tarl Wood is the best service provider I have worked with this year (and possibly ever, but I’d have to go way back …Colin & Cathy Walker

Tarl Wood was awesome and I had a great experience with The Rahill Real Estate Group and the progress. Thank you!Rick Pathi
Best experience I’ve ever had! From day 1 through escrow closing & beyond, Rick of Rahill Real Estate was there for “me”……….Sheila Pitts
My wife and I bought a house in Big Bear Lake from Will Rahill in 2008. We love our home here.  Will, made the experience wonderful.  He is very knowledgeable and he knows how to do his job in a quick and efficient manner.   Will also gave us a lot of pointers on the town and people here and he gave my son his first set of skis and boots. We would highly recommend him.Paul & Andrea Columbis
This letter is intended to give thanks for an excellent job done by Jonathan Vasquez, part of Team Rahill, Keller Williams Realty. I first met Jonathan on May twentieth after seeing various properties to get an idea of what I was looking for. He managed to locate the house next door to my brother’s cabin which was exactly what I was looking for. We put a bid on the house which was immediately accepted. The process went very smoothly thanks to Jonathan and his …Oscar Menendez
Seldom does one receive customer service as satisfying as was provided by our agent, Tarl Wood. He was professional & personable and made a process that might otherwise have been stressful, progress smoothly & efficiently. His warm and friendly personality made him a pleasure to work with and I would whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone in need of a competent agent. Thank you Lisa Seifert for referring us to one of your best.Sandy Smith
Lisa, my son Joe was spot on when he recommended the Rahill Real Estate Group. It was comforting to have a person who could understand the emotional problems in having to give up my dads cabin. Thank you for being so sweet.Lois Lillibridge
This was our first home purchase since we retired 2 years ago. During my 35 year career, we were moved 7 times domestically and 6 times internationally. The property purchase in your area was, by far, the easiest one we have experienced. We were guided through the process by our agent, Lisa Seifert. Lisa was patient with our ever changing goals, as we viewed dozens of properties and learned more about the area. She provided concise guidance, communicated with us on a daily basis, …Mike & Roseanne Mollere
When my wife & I started getting interested in purchasing a vacation home in Big Bear, we really didn’t know for sure what we wanted & weren’t entirely sure with the area, so I started searching the web to find a real estate agent to help answer our questions. The first real estate agency I emailed replied a couple days later and then I didn’t hear back from them for over a week. Therefore, I decided to try a different agency. However, I never …Brad Gilpin
I’ve known Will for 25 years, and there is nobody I would trust or recommend more highly.Mark Spurlock
Our experience with Team Rahill was very positive at all times. We worked with Tarl Wood over several months. Tarl provided advice & important knowledge of the area which helped us make decisions. As a result, we made a purchase we are very happy with.Max & Julie Perdue

How to Pronounce Rahill

I love, love, love, this Framed "Rahill" sign my team gave me as a gift. It is hanging over my fireplace in my office and it reminds me of my awesome team every time I look at it. The Rahill graphic was originally designed by Skip Sjoberg my college room mate and then my team paid Andy Meadors to colorize it and jazz it up and finally David Strandberg built the frame and hung it for me. Skip ingeniously designed the graphic as my real estate company logo with meaningful symbolism that few people likely grasp. Those who know the correct pronunciation of my ...read more
