The following reviews are both real and verifiable. I am happy to provide further contact info for any of these clients below, all of whom submitted these on their own volition. I have helped many of them multiple times over the years I’ve been doing this and worked hard to receive whatever stars they felt I deserved. Their testimonials here are honest and 100% in their own words. Given how much is available online about invalid or unauthentic Yelp reviews, I just wanted to mention this. Feel free to ask me anything you want about these clients or what real estate transaction(s) they were involved in. I’ll happily provide dates, prices and addresses of the properties involved.

Ted has helped us with several real estate transactions.  Every one was seamless and painless. He has given us excellent advice on where and what to buy. Each of these transactions has been financially and personally favorable for us.  He has also steered us away from homes that would not have worked out as well for us. He is a true professional, extremely responsive and available.  And most of all he is a great guy which makes what can seem for most of us an overwhelming and intimidating experience actually a pleasant one.

"We can’t say enough about his professional and warm demeanor"

Working with Ted was a wonderful experience!  We had a somewhat complicated situation, selling my father’s house remotely.  From our first meeting, Ted put us at ease.  He listened carefully to our needs and concerns.  Ted assured us that he could manage everything locally, while keeping us informed throughout the process.  Ted more than delivered on everything he promised, and we could not be happier!

Although we initially wanted to sell the house with a minimum of work to spruce things up, Ted suggested that if we made some small improvements, we would realize a better return on the sale.  Ted managed all of the work, finding very reasonably priced contractors to come in and complete the work within a very tight time frame.  Ted was a true partner, helping us to make informed decisions about which improvements would really improve the sale value.

Ted was the absolute best broker we could have had!  His personal involvement, guidance, attention to detail, and wonderful sense of humor helped us through what otherwise could have been a difficult process.   All of the energy and dedication Ted provided, helped us to realize a far greater sale price than we ever imagined possible.

"Ted is always reachable by phone, text, and email"

We first met Ted over 10 years ago when we moved to the area and have relied on him not only for our first purchase in Marin, but also the sale of that property and the hunt for a new home.  Since he is established and works well with all of the people involved to complete the transaction we were able to quickly close the transactions.  Most of the paperwork was electronic which worked well for us and our busy schedules.

Ted is always reachable by phone, text, and email.  Since he always follows through you know that he is doing everything possible for you to complete the transaction.  If we ever need to refer someone or need real estate services again Ted is our first call.

"He always ensured that we were comfortable and felt respected."





From the moment we met Ted, we felt very comfortable working with him.  He immediately seemed very sincere and trustworthy. That was a huge relief considering that this was to be a complicated project of renovating and selling a home owned by my aging mother. She was experiencing extreme overwhelm and I live far away.  Ted set us at ease, asked all the right questions, and really struck a balance between listening to our ideas and suggesting those of his own.  More than anything, Ted displayed a kindness and level of consideration that is rare in a business environment.

Ted and his crew worked on this project for over 5 months.  In that time we were very pleased with the extremely detailed level of communication.  He kept us informed of everything going on and helped us to understand trade-offs of the decisions that were to be made.  He always ensured that we were comfortable and felt respected and involved as much as we wanted to be.  We honestly feel that Ted approached this project with the care and consideration that he would use if it were his own home (or that if his own mother), and we felt privileged to be represented by him.

Ultimately, we feel that without Ted at the helm of this project we would not be where we are today.  In fact, we would probably still be overwhelmed and stuck in the middle of a renovation nightmare!  We are EXTREMELY satisfied with the dedication he presented to us, and with the end-result of a home that received multiple offers, over asking, within a few short days of being listed.  We feel that Ted did an amazing from beginning to end and yielded marvelous results.  It is our sincere expression that NO OTHER agent could have done the job that Ted did, and we look forward to any opportunity that would allow us to partner with him in the future.

"He made it so easy that we couldn’t wait to upgrade years later."





Ted has been our broker for 10+ years, and we have never even though about using anyone else. He found us our home in Corte Madera as first time homeowners coming from SF with no knowledge of the Marin market. Looking back, I realize just how great he was at handling all the intricacies of homeownership here in Marin, and we never felt any pressure! He made it so easy that we couldn’t wait to upgrade years later knowing he would sell our home at the price we wanted, when we wanted, and find us our dream home in Larkspur.  All in the course of a few months! His ability to negotiate on your behalf and put together a flawless deal is an absolute necessity in this crazy, competitive, multiple offers over asking, Marinreal estate market. When you find the house you want to buy, Ted will get it for you.  And he will work 24/7 in the process.  His wealth of experience, market knowledge, unbridled enthusiasm and great sense of humor makes him a pleasure to work with.  5 Stars for Ted because he has consistently been one of Marin’s top producers in the volatile world of real estate. That says a lot! AND he’s a really great guy. I guarantee he will become a life -long friend in the process.

"I would highly recommend Ted to anyone!"





Just want to say how pleased I am – once again – with Ted Strodder.
He is the perfect broker…he listens to his clients and while he is pleasant to work with he has just the right amount of practicality to make the CLIENT listen.

This particular transaction was a difficult one that required a lot of creativity.  Ted stood by me all the way making sure that I understood all my options including advice on getting timely inspections, changing strategies, moving quickly when necessary and thinking things through.  Although he did not give me tax advice he encouraged me to talk to my CPA which was important.

I would highly recommend Ted to anyone!

"It was great to work with Ted and we would recommend him highly!"





We have been working with Ted over the past few months and would like to comment.
We found Ted pleasant, efficient and easy to work with.  He was always accommodating and when we were having problems with our computer printer for Docusign he was obliging by getting copies to us by mail or at his office.
Of course we were impressed when the limited amount of money we spent on an upgrade, at the urging of Ted, resulted in a quick sale $40,000 above our asking price!
All in all it was great to work with Ted and we would recommend him highly!

"Ted is bright and so knowledgeable about the market."






Ted helped us buy our condo in Tiburon.  He knew exactly how to present our offer to the seller and thanks to Ted, we were successful!  He has been so attentive with a search in Sonoma, and I know that we will find something soon!  Ted is bright and so knowledgeable about the market.  He is kind and thoughtful and we consider him a friend that we can trust as well as help us with our real estate needs.
He also worked with our son and helped him find a house in Corte Madera.
A First Class person and agent!!
