About Ted Strodder
Ted Strodder is one of the most experienced, dedicated, hard working Real Estate Brokers in Marin County, helping clients achieve maximum results with unmatched detailed effort and follow up. Ted works in the #1 Real Estate Office in the county for Decker Bullock Sotheby’s International Realty. He has been a licensed broker for over two decades and has received numerous awards for client service and sales, including being named the #1 agent in his company for homes sold, off and on over the last twenty years.
Ted started out building fences and moved into fixing up houses in the mid 80’s. He ultimately traded in his tool belt for a tie though, finding he hit his thumb with the hammer more than he did the nail. He went on to become a busy agent, helping friends and new clients with 22 home sales his first year. He personally remodeled 25 homes over his long career, though ultimately gave up that aspect of the business to focus on helping clients with their projects. He is still considered to be one of the county experts on fixer uppers and construction.
Ted is the co-founder of the Marin Platinum Group, a network comprised of the Top 100 Agents in Marin County. He is a native to the Bay Area and can answer any question you may have about specific property values, schools, weather patterns, commute times and recreation. He is always just an email, text or phone call away at 415.377.5222, or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a strong chance he will pick up the phone, but if not, he will respond quickly, guaranteed.

Ted Strodder has been interviewed each of the last three years by Marin Magazine for their “Backstory” segment, which tells the tale of a local couple with a story to tell about their recent purchase. In each case, Ted’s clients had purchased a fixer upper, which he assisted them in reconstructing at no charge.
He has also received numerous certificates and placards, becoming the #1 Agent for the (then) top real estate company in Marin: Frank Howard Allen, where he had worked for 20+ years. In a first for the company, in 2006 he sold more homes and for a higher combined dollar volume than any of their 500+ agents. He then did it again in 2007, repeating for a second year in a row, which to this day is a record that’s never been broken.
The company hired Ted to teach others and ultimately becoming a known Motivational Speaker in the county, earning this in 2010:
Ted is also EcoBroker certified, though honestly I don’t recall anyone asking about this distinction or hearing much about it in the offices.

This shot above was used by The Republic of Tea on a tin of their Double Green Matcha. Ted mentioned to his client Ron, who owns the company, that he needed two bags of their green tea in the morning as one wasn’t usually strong enough. Next thing you know, they launch a double strength version!
