"May in Marin: Will New Mortgage Changes Make a Difference?"May30
Speaking of bananas, that pretty much sums up the real estate market these days. January marked the start of my 37th year as a real estate broker here. But I will be the first to tell you that every dawn brings a new day to the market. Many of those days make me feel like I'm new to the business. Sure I've picked up a few good negotiating skills, but I have very little insight into what's going to happen or where things are going. In general, that is. On s...

“My family could not have done this without Ted. We live remotely and needed somebody we could trust to manage the entire sales process for us. More than 6 months before we even put the house on the market, Ted got involved with the preparation of the house. This included, but was not limited to: planning the rehab of the home; organizing, negotiating with, and hiring the different vendors that would ultimately rehab the house; doing constant market analysis to let us know where our house would realistically land in the marketplace; obtaining multiple offers; selecting the best offer; and managing the deal while in escrow to make sure we closed in a timely manner without any major delays. There will always be obstacles through the sale process, and you want to make sure you have somebody on your side that you can not only trust, but who also has the experience and know-how to help overcome obstacles. Ted brings a whole new level of meaning to the concept of “service”, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. As people can probably glean from past reviews, working with Ted has been an amazing experience. I have had two transactions with Ted representing me on home purchases and I always felt he was truly representing my best interests. He was super responsive, attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful with giving me all the information I needed to make an informed decision. You can ask him any questions and he will always find the best answer to answer your question. I highly recommend him for anyone searching for a real estate agent; he is a true professional who provides exceptional service Ted made a complex sale run smoothly and quickly for an excellent price. The house needed substantial preparation and Ted had the crews to quickly accomplish the right work to put the house in market ready condition. The house was being sold by a trustee on the east coast. Ted made all that seamless. He was always out in front of the next step in the process with near daily proactive communication. It’s long been said that the keys to a successful real estate sale are to hire the most successful agent, put the property in A1 market ready condition, and price it correctly. It worked beyond expectation. I recommend Ted without reservation and would hire him again. Ted went beyond the call of duty to help us find not just “a home” but “the right home”. The Marin market is complex, and sometimes difficult to navigate and understand due to all the variables at play when looking for a home (schools, level land, walkability, micro-climate, ease of permitting remodeling work, parking – the list is extensive). But Ted has the years of experience and resources to help you find the right house, and then to help make it the right HOME for you and your family. If there were a six star grade, Ted would get it!”
