Nasrin Pez - July 2012
I'm writing this letter to send my first hand experience I had working with Patty Best and Chad Lund which I highly recommend to anyone looking for an agent. They are good listeners and very active participants in the sale process. They are professional, courteous and supportive until the end. Patty and Chad are resourceful and clearly at the top of their field.
I will definitely use their expertise and services in the future and I have recommended them to everyone I know. If you are looking for an agent, look no other than Patty and Chad.
Nancy & Carter - July 2012
When we walked into the condo you were showing that Sunday afternoon, we had no idea of the journey we would be sharing. We thought it would be such an easy process, but boy were we wrong. You were so great in holding our collective hands and helping us not lose sight of our goal. Hard to believe it's already a week since closing our sale of the condo in Westwood. Thank you again for all that you did for us in reaching a successful sale. The sale of the condo seemed precarious at times but with your diligence, tenaciousness and willingness to listen, we made it through. We want to congratulate you and Chad for doing such a professional job. We applaud you! And hopefully we can work together again.
Annette K. - July 2012
I chose Patty and Chad to sell my condo because I observed they had a very strong presence in the Westwood area and I felt this type of market knowledge would give me a competitive edge. Their approach to pricing my listing was right on because not only did they generate a lot of immediate interest, but they also managed to get me more than my asking price. They were very patient, responsive, and personable, which I truly appreciated being a first time seller. I'm excited to work with them again to find another property and I highly recommend this dynamic duo of a team.
Stacie Cohen - September 2011
This was our first time selling a house. And, with two little boys, the task was a little daunting. We needed a broker to help us get our house sold quickly and competently. We knew Chad was the one to go to and he delivered! In this market, we weren't sure what kind of showing we would get, but Chad dispelled all of our fears and had our house flooded with interested buyers and offers in the first week. Moreover, he was wonderful with our family and made the selling process a total positive for our little boys. They were so excited to see Chad that the open house, sign, etc. didn't even phase them. Thank you, Chad!
Timo S. Kissel - September 2011
I hired Patty and Chad to sell my condo in Rancho Park. Since I had limited availability to deal with the transaction myself, I turned over the keys to them, and asked them to take care of anything and everything that needed to get done to sell the place. They did a great job hiring the necessary contractors to make minor repairs and close the transaction with only minimal involvement required on my part. I especially appreciated their
usage of the DocuSign electronic signature system which allowed me to keep the process moving even as I was abroad during parts of the sale process.
Darlene M. Blackwood - June 2011
My parents moved into their Westwood home in 1958. Over the years, many real estate agents came by to solicit their favor towards the day when they would sell their home. So when mother passed in September of 2010 at the age of 98, I was faced with a collection of agents and a big question: out of all of these, who was experienced, trustworthy, and had the integrity to represent my sister and me to sell mother's home, since we both lived out of the area?
I interviewed several agents but did not feel totally comfortable with any of them. It was the owner of the estate sale business I hired who said, "There is only one agent you should use: Chad Lund. I have worked with him for years. He will do a fabulous job for you." I had seen his signs on several homes in our neighborhood, so based on her recommendation and his current listings, I sought him out.
From the first moment I met him I was impressed by his respect for my time and his, how prepared he was for our interview, his depth of knowledge of the community, and his concept of his job. "I will be your buffer," he said. "You don't have to worry. You can trust me."
At the time I thought, "Oh yeah. Everybody says that!." But my out-of-town circumstances evolved so that I HAD to put all of my trust in him. I had to trust his judgment in how and when to market our property. He was absolutely correct. I had to trust his advice on the proper steps to take after marketing. I had to trust his recommendations on the bids. And throughout, I learned that he truly knows his business. We received a price above our wildest dreams and buyers that met our fondest desires.
Furthermore, his character and positive attitude are exemplary. He does what he says he will, when he says he will, cheerfully. In my opinion, Chad Lund is a model for other real estate agents to follow. Yes, Chad did a 'fabulous job' for us. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Heidi and Eric Kitei - May 2011
Dear Chad and Patty:
I wanted to thank you for your continued support throughout what proved
to be one of the most difficult events in our lives. I'm pleased to
let you know that we closed escrow on Tuesday! I guess the 12th offer
was a charm!! (Seriously, I'm not kidding -- 12 offers!!)
It was a very challenging process for us and we learned many hard
lessons. Most importantly, we should have listed our property with
you. We were trying to be loyal to the agent we purchased our new home
from and lost sight of sound business judgment. We are a bit worse for
the wear and a bit stronger and wiser as well.
You are both so professional, knowledgeable and kind, that I'm honestly
at a loss for words. When you could have refused my calls, you were
both there for me and my family and made me feel so much better. Chad,
I'm so grateful for all of your insight. I honestly cannot thank you
enough. I will, without any hesitation, recommend you to any and all
of my friends on the Westside who are looking to buy or sell a property.
Prosperity, health and the best to you both. I hope the the kindness
you showed to me is returned to you each ten-fold.
Heidi and Eric Kitei (and Arianna too!)
Julie & Lu Romero - May 2011
We can't say enough good things about Chad Lund. He sold our house in a very difficult market while we were out of state and in a different time zone. Within 10 days of our listing, we had multiple offers. Our process was filled with lots of trials along the way, but none of it phased Chad. He has such a calm demeanor that eases tension and allows him to constantly problem solve. He diffuses situations immediately. We had a tree fall on our neighbor's house and before I even got a phone call from our neighbor, Chad was at the house dealing with the problem.
His skill and experience make every step along the way seem effortless. This is truly an advantage from the initial listing to the final negotiation. He is knowledgeable and can work well with other agents. He is great at closing the deal and it is painless. The final escrow process was a breeze for us and it was all handled out of state. His disposition is a pleasure to work with and his professionalism goes unmatched.
Chad always made us feel important and handled all our needs. We highly recommend him. You won't be disappointed. Thank you again Chad.
Tracy and Eric - April 2011
Please know that we are so very grateful to have you as our quarterback in this process. You (and your team) have been terrific throughout! Though we are high strung, your easygoing nature allowed us to get through this process with minimal stress. We recognize that with your relationships and style, we were able to maximize the sale of our home and minimize the purchase of Clarkson. The decision to recruit you onto our team was the best one we made.
So, to you, we owe you a great big THANKS!
Cindy and Blaise Antin - February 2011
We recently sold a house with Chad and Patty. The experience was top-notch from start to finish. Both Chad and Patty were present for every part of the process. The service they provided was honest, attentive and friendly, and their knowledge and understanding of the local market was critically important to our pricing decision and subsequent negotiations with the buyers. Selling a house can be a stressful experience even in the best of times, so it's important to choose agents you can trust to take you through the process with both grace and expertise.
Mary Dashiell - January 2011
What is there to say about Telesproperties, or more precisely, Chad and Patty? They sold my home in ONE DAY, and yes, I got my asking price. Their professionalism and demeanor through-out the process, was just what I wanted. Obviously, I made the right decision.
Elodie Lorenz - October 2010
Chad represented our Rancho Park house during the volatile fall of 2010. He made a great partner throughout the entire process. He gave us lots of helpful (yet cost-effective) suggestions so that the home would show well. The photos turned out brilliantly, making the house look spacious and sunny. He helped us pick a price point that was realistic yet flexible. Chad actively marketed the house to his network and beyond, which resulted in well-attended open houses and daily, private showings. We had three offers within a couple of weeks, and when the negotiated deal threatened to fall apart, Chad hustled and got us a back-up offer, which put us in a much stronger bargaining position. He's a great listener and a great partner. You would do well to list your home with him.
Nancy Donald - August 2010
Chad made the experience of selling my 61 year old house, one I'd lived in for over 20 years, easier than I thought possible, from pricing to marketing, to the final details of successfully closing escrow.
He worked with me, long distance, and in person, answering every phone call and email with grace, good humor and complete expertise and integrity. There wasn't any question he couldn't answer, or any situation that provoked anything but the most positive response. Nothing fazed him and he always had more than one solution to the contingencies that came up in the complex process of selling a house in today's economic climate.
His sales record and detailed knowledge of the neighborhood is well known, but I had no idea that he'd be such a good listener and able to defuse any emotional issues that came up for me. He handled things that I couldn't deal with because I'd already moved out and left no details unattended.
Chad and his team at Teles did such an expert job that we had multiple offers in the first week the house was on the market and a qualified buyer very soon after that.
He has my highest recommendation and gratitude.
Doug & Katie Stuman - July 2010
My husband and I were selling our first home after having lived there for 13 years. In these uncertain times, our family needed to know that we were going to someone that we could trust to sell our house. Without a doubt that person for us was Chad Lund.
With Chad and his expert team at Teles, you not only get the security of a big, successful brand, but also such incredible personal attention, that Chad will make you feel as if you were his only client. Whether it was the first time he walked in the front door and gave us his expertise about preparing our house to go on the market, a comforting phone call when I was feeling emotional or concerned about any aspect of selling our home, or his closing our deal on a Friday evening at midnight, Chad got it done.
Within less then a week he had so successfully marketed our house that it sold even before the first official Open House that Sunday. While we are no longer clients of Chad (for now) we were so pleased with our whole experience with him, that we are proud to say that he has become a dear family friend. For anyone who is considering hiring Chad, I would simply say "Stop looking & Congratulations you found the right guy for the job!"
Harris Peter - June 2010
I spent several months searching for an agent to sell my house, and eventually narrowed my choice to just four. All were smart and qualified, but, with each one, there was some doubt. Fortunately, I happened across an ad for Teles Properties and Chad Lund. I noticed that Teles had the best statistics for sales closest to asking price and least number of days on the market. I asked around about Chad, and the reports were uniformly positive.
Chad prepared a comparative market analysis. It was clear that his understanding of the market was much deeper and more detailed than any of the other agents. With him, every box on my list of qualifications was checked. Further, his estimate of the sale price was very close to what my research had suggested.
After listing, Chad got his team to work immediately. The house was exquisitely staged and he had a large number of buyers at the first showing. We had multiple offers within a week, and soon had an offer above the asking price.
Throughout the escrow period, Chad managed all of the issues with consummate skill. When the inspection revealed problems that led to a challenging counteroffer, Chad's long experience enabled him to know what was real and what was fluff. The result: in a tough buyer's market, we ended up with a very good sale price, a fact we verified by monitoring subsequent comparable sales in my market.
Chad's degree in economics, mastery of numbers, and long experience in both commercial and residential real estate have given him a deep intuition about the best strategy for selling or buying a house. He has honed his ability to assess the many variables and choose the approach that best suits your individual needs.
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Chad and the Teles Properties team. As for personality, Chad doesn't try to make you like him, but you're going to like him. If you want to have absolute confidence in your real estate agent, choose Chad. You'll get a very good price and you'll sleep well too.
Ron Seeley - May 2010
I highly recommend Chad Lund to anyone looking for first-class representation in connection with Westside residential real estate. Chad and his Teles Properties team handled the marketing and sale of our West Los Angeles property with professionalism, skill and efficiency. Chad coordinated our readying of the property for sale, including advising us on what to spend money on and what not to - - gearing expenditures not only to budgetary concerns but also to doing those improvements that would increase the marketability of the property. His marketing presentation of the property was very appealing and professional. I was particularly impressed with the ease and efficiency with which Chad handled every kind of challenge that the sale presented, from mundane things like garage door and plumbing repairs, to more complicated matters such as title issues necessary to close escrow; nothing fazed him - - he just got things done. His handling of every aspect of our transaction was expert, and he was a pleasure to work with, personally and professionally, from the start right through to the timely and very satisfying finish.
Adam & Staci Miller - February 2010
My husband and I gave Chad Lund a difficult task, and he came through wonderfully. We had recently purchased a new home, and needed to sell our existing home very quickly. The trick was that it was during the holiday season, and we still wanted to get fair market value for our home. We met with and interviewed several real estate agents. Most of them 'local market experts' . Given our time constraints, almost all of the other agents suggested we list our home at a very low price --- much lower than we thought was fair. We felt many of these agents were more concerned with selling us, then selling our house --- i.e., convincing us to list our house at a rock-bottom price so that it would move quickly for them. Only Chad, suggested listing at a higher price --- one that was still competitive, but closer to what we felt our home was worth. We felt he was more genuinely interested in getting a fair price for our house, even if the risk was slightly higher.
Within one week of signing up with Chad as our agent, we had seven offers on our home. Several of them over asking. In the end we selected an offer that was well over asking. My husband and I strongly feel that if we had gone with any of the other agents we would have netted significantly less for our home. In addition, to the bottom line, Chad was a pleasure to work with. From literally 30 showings, to two open houses Chad was always the one we dealt with. He was always very responsive and accessible.
Bottom line for us is that Chad's expertise in the local market, combined with his easy going, but still 'on-top-of things' style was precisely what we needed.
We would be happy to work with him again in the future (although as my husband tells me --- no more houses for a very long time!).
Eddy Kup - November 2009
In addition to being a consummate professional with a very good pulse of the real estate market, Chad was instrumental to helping us sell a house located in a difficult location at a price higher than what we expected.
Cameron & Naomi Gloege - November 2009
Just wanted to say thank you again for all you have done for us throughout the process of selling our condo and buyer our home. You are both great! You made everything so easy and stress-free for us and the process could hardly have gone smoother-especially the timing. Feel free to use us as a reference anytime, we'd have nothing but the best to say about you both. We are so grateful to have worked with you
Trust Sale - August 2009
Thank you very much for helping us sell our parents home. It was a
very hard time for my sister and me. But you and Patty led us
through it step by step. The two of you are great and we truly
appreciate all that you both have done.
Linda Johnson and Karen Hoffman
George and Lory Ishii-August 2009
I hope you don't mind my husband and I cluttering your email box, but we felt it necessary to send you a personal note in highest praise of our Teles agent, Chad Lund. Having lived in the Rancho Park neighborhood for the past 2 years, my husband and I constantly walk by houses being listed by Chad, and he's become a household name amongst the neighbors. When it became time for us to list our house, we had many options and even great personal relationships with many brokers, but in the end, we felt it was the smart decision to list with Chad because we've never seen a listing of his go unsold for longer than what seems like one-week.
To be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first because I didn't want to feel like we were just another one of Chad's many listings, but my husband convinced me it was a good business decision to go with a trusted name. Contrary to my initial feelings, we are completely blown-away by Chad! The amount of time that he spent with us, answering all kinds of questions, listening to our doubts and fears, responding to emails with quickness, coupled with his outstanding competency as a broker (including excellent marketing, pricing, and counter-offer advice) warrant this personal email.
Selling a home--something so personal and precious to a person--is not an easy process. But with Chad as our agent, we have experienced nothing but utmost trust that our interests were being well taken care of. Chad is so friendly, personable, and skillful (without being "sales"-y)! We are so glad we went with Chad as our sales broker/listing agent and are so pleased that our house is now "IN ESCROW" after a week on the market (and for more than asking price in this economy)! Teles Properties will now be a highly regarded name in our books, too, because we know you hire phenomenal people like Chad. We are more than enthusiastic to recommend Chad and also Teles to any and all of our friends and family--which I truly think is the highest compliment we can give.
George and Lory Ishii
Steve and Melissa Lee - August 2009
Chad was everything we hoped to find in a realtor. Most importantly,
he was an invaluable resource when it came time to select the listing
price for our property. His analysis of the comparable homes in our
area was spot on. As a result, in a buyer's market we received an
offer in only four days for our target purchase price. We selected
Chad for his expertise in pricing properties and we were not
disappointed. In addition, he surpassed our expectations for personal
attention and responsiveness. He handled every aspect of our sale,
even coming over to the house to answer our questions about the sales
contract in person. We had high expectations for Chad and he
surpassed them all.
Stan and Karen Chao - August 2009
Chad Lund and Patty Best were excellent realtors to work with. They provided high quality service and were both professional and personable. They are very knowledgeable about the market and real estate trends and were able to use this information to help us sell our house quickly. They accommodated our schedule for showings and made the process very easy for us. Every stop of the process was clearly explained and wonderfully handled by Chad and Patty. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
Shannon Dashiell - July 2009
When I met Patty and Chad years ago, I knew that if I ever needed to sell my home on Fairburn Avenue that they would be the team to do the job. Their professionalism, organization, can-do attitude, positive and patient demeanor as well as their extensive knowledge of the westside was a no-brainer in my decision to choose them over their competing agents in the neighborhood. I knew I would be treated as if I was their only client - and I certainly felt that way throughout the process.
They sold my sweet home quickly and efficiently - all the while listening to me as my heart broke selling the 1st home I ever bought on the street where I grew up! Patty and Chad are top-notch professionals who I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to sell their home.
Joe & Denise Traboulsi November 2008
'When you need an agent, it starts and ends with Chad Lund'
If you are looking to buy or sell a home, and you need an agent , it starts and ends with Chad Lund. We worked with other agents that were either not interested enough or willing to go the extra mile to make sure we got what we were looking for. Once we started working with Chad, that changed, and we were able to find the house we were looking for. Chad's patience and willingness to go the extra mile paid off for us. Chad was there for us from start to finish, and made sure everything was taken care of. Chad thank you for everything!!!!!
'You Were Great Through the Whole Transaction'
Paul and I wanted to thank you again for the great job you did helping us to sell our home on Overland. By my count, the house was on the market about 3 weeks when we accepted the offer that resulted in the sale of our home. You were great through the whole transaction. The current financial crisis added to our anxiety about whether the house would close, but you brought us a qualified buyer and then guided us through to the end. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone who is thinking about engaging your services. We couldn't be more pleased.
Isabelle & Doug October 2008
'We Appreciate All That You've Done'
Thank you very much for helping us find our new home! We're looking forward to watching our kids grow up in such a nice neighborhood. You've truly been wonderful to work with and we appreciate all that you've done. Please keep in touch!
Susan & Kurt Bowerman October 2008
'You Were The First Agent We Called - And the Only One'
We can't thank you enough for everything you and your team did for us in order to get our house sold this summer. You were the first agent we called - and the only one. After our first meeting, we knew that the sale of our house was in the right hands. You understood and respected our goals and laid out a specific plan for how to achieve them - and your strategy worked beautifully. Despite the down real estate market, you and Patty helped us get the house ready, marketed it to the max, brought in a flood of people the first weekend, and present us with seven offers after only six days. That would be a remarkable accomplishment under any circumstances, but in this down market is was nearly a miracle. And if that weren't enough, we sold the home at well above asking price. Escrow was quick and painless, and through it all you were the voie of calm and reason. You never got rattled and it was truly a pleasure to work with you and your team. Thanks again for everything - we're so happy we called you.
Bita Klein September 2008
'Had Our Best Interest in Mind During the Whole Process'
Chad Lund sold our home for us in Westwood. We wanted to sell our home quickly, and get the best possible price. Chad helped us to do this. We found that not only was he a good negotiator in the sales process, but also throughout the period in which we rented the house back. We felt he represented us well, and had our best interest in mind during the whole process. He was very straightforward in his dealings with us. I think you you will be as happy with your selection of Chad as we were.
Dave Viner & Diana Hardy July 2008
'It Was Patty's Knowledge, Experience & Professionalism that Made the Difference'
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Patty. We put our condo on the market during a tough period for real estate. You'd never know times were tough though because Patty had our place sold and our family moved into a wonderful new townhome in no time. Patty had a solution for every hiccup the market thew our way. Amazing! In this real estate economy, we know that it was Patty's knowledge, experience and professionalism that made the difference. Thank you, thank you, Patty!!!
Rick Manke June 2008
'Sales Track Record Has Been Extremely Impressive'
When I was ready to sell my house, I knew Chad was the one reeal estate agent to call. His sales track record has been extremely impressive. Thanks to Chad and his team, my house was in escrow after just one week on the market. Chad was there for me during every step of the process from listing to clos of escrow. Chad demonstrated to me the highest level of professionalism and real estate expertise that I could have hoped for. It has been a pleasure to be on of Chad's many clients.
Chris and Erin Acimovic July 2007
'You Were There For Us Every Step Of The Way'
Chad, We could not thank you enough for all that you did to help make our dream of home ownership come true. You were there for us every step of the way with unwavering patience, encouragement, and guidance. There were moments when we thought the deal was going to bust but you kept us on track and remained positive. Your reputation in the industry no doubt made the deal happen as well and we are grateful that you agreed to represent us. Lastly, we know how much time and energy you put into this transaction. You are the man!
Kevin Heffernan & Sue Calder April 2007
'They were Available for Us At Any Time'
We were first time home buyers and really didn't know much about the process. We went with Chad and Patty basically because we thought they were nice people with a great knowledge of the area. They ended up being that and a lot more. They were smart, attentive and professional. Chad and Patty quickly helped us find a great place in Mar Vista. From the time we first met with them to the time we moved into our new house, it was just 3 months. We were truly rookies and they guided us through every step of the process: negotiating price, inspections, escrow, etc. They were available for us at any time. (Frankly, a month later, we're still callin gthem for advice on vendors and other 'new house' related stuff and they keep coming through for us.) Chad and Patty were Great. We really made the right choice. We couldn't recommend them more highly.
Carla & Richard Satnick May 2007
Patient, Supportive and Professional
Thank you, Patty, for having the patience to help us find just the right place. From the moment we started our search, you assured us that you could find us just the right place - and you did! You stuck with us through the many 'almosts and maybes' until the perfect place came on the market. Your advice was always on target. Thank you for your openness and support throughout the entire process, making this major life event as easy as possible.
Arne Schmidt February 2007
'Your Extensive Knowledge of The Neighborhood'
I just wanted to thank you for your helping selling my mom's house on Parnell. As you know, mom is 86, and the thought of selling her house of 40 years was daunting. You helped us price it right and market it right for a quick, painless sale. I interviewed one other Westside realtor before going with you, and his suggested asking price was almost $100k lower than yours. Your extensive knowledge of the neighborhood is why I decided to go with you instead of him and it really paid off for us. It only took eight days to make the sale! Thanks again!
Don & Vicki Tyler January 2007
Thank you for your professionalism and assistance in selling our home and wishing you a strong year in 2007.
Allen & Sybille McNamee January 2007
'Honesty, Integrity & Professionalism'
Even in a tough market, we received an acceptable offer in less than thirty days. Thank you Chad and Patty for helping us sell our house in a minimal amount of time with minimal hassle. We really appreciate your honesty, integrity and professionalism throughout the process. We highly recommend your services to anyone who is considering selling their home.
Lou Miller October 2006
'You were able to lift the burden'
Dear Chad, I have to say selling ones house is not usually a happy experience. Because of your personal attention, I found I was able to place everything in your hands. You were able to lift the burden from me and make me feel like I had a partner and a friend. Thank you so much.
Bob & Debby Newman October 2006
'Level of Professionalism and Integrity that is very rare to find'
After meeting Chad, I had a gut feeling that he was the one to sell our house and it was an absolute pleasure working with him! Chad provided a level of professionalism and intergrity that is very rare to find these days. We highly recommend Chad and his team and wish him all the best!
Kathy Vek October 2006
'You got us through it'
I want to thank you both for all your hard work and efforts to get the house sold. I know it hasn't been easy, dealing with 5 people (trust sale family members), but you got us through it, the both of you. I'm going to keep your email addresses so that if any of my friends need to buy new property or sell their property, I'll give them to you.
Suzie Kohno September 2006
'Able to Work in Tougher Environments'
Chad has quite a good reputation in the industry which is why I hired him as my agent. He was professional, reasonable and patient throughout the process. Chad also proved that he was able to work in tougher environments, as I had the unfortunate and unusual experience of having my house fall out of escrow just days before it was to close. Not only did he take me through this nerve-racking process and handle all the details, but Chad found another buyer within days after falling out of escrow. It was a pleasure working with him!
Jan & Wendy July 2006
'Expertise & Understanding'
Thanks for all you did to sell the condo. We both appreciated your expertise and understanding of what it took to sell our place.
Mike Makofske June 2006
'He has a great track record in Westside Real Estate'
I am very happy with the job Chad and his team did helping my sister and me sell our family home in Cheviot Hills after our dad died. I knew it would be a bumpy ride - separating 50 years of junk from 50 years of treasures, getting the place spruced up for sale, figuring out the right price, getting it on the market, etc. I interviewed about a dozen agents for the job. I picked Chad because he has a great track record in Westside real estate and -- perhaps more important -- he has the kind of positive, upbeat, helpful, team-oriented personality we needed to keep our spirits up and our effort moving forward. Our open house was incredibly well attended; we had three offers within 24 hours and ended up selling at a nice premium over our asking price. I love it when a plan comes together -- and it came together beautifully with Chad leading the way!
Gita Gupta-Garcia and Jorge Garcia February 2006
'You Truly Brought a Level of Professionalism...'
We are so thrilled with the excellent service we received from you and Patty in the recent sale of our home in Westwood. You have raised the bar in our expectations of what a qualified, caring, and dilligent agent (who really knows an area) can provide. You truly brought a level of professionalism that we have unfortunately not encountered in our previous real estate transactions in the area and we will be pleased to refer our friends and colleagues to you and Patty in the future. It's clear that the two of you are in business for the long-term and value relationships and reputation -- it was a pleasure for us to have a partner on our transaction who shares the same objectives as we do. Thank you again for your high level of service and attention to detail.
Chris & Jennifer Morris September 2005
Really Appreciate The Work You Have Done'
Thanks for all your help with the purchase and now the sale of our first home in Rancho Park. You made this process as smooth as possible and were very informative. We really appreciate the work you have done for us.
Brian & Gabriela Wilbur September 2005
Speaking on behalf of Brian and myself, I'd like you to know how incredibly pleased we've been with your service. We thank you for being patient, tough, responsive (I thought I had the fastest email turnaround time) and extremely professional. You should know we plan to send anyone and everyone your way for future business. We have a lot of friends who are accomplished professionals who want to find a significant other before they buy a home. We hope to deliver them to your doorstep! Thanks again.
Sam Martinuzzi June 2005
'Exceeded My Expectations'
What can I say. Your service exceeded my expectations on every level and in every area. I never could have imagined that half of Los Angeles would show up to see my open house! Though any transaction involving this kind of money is going to be filled with details, potential road blocks and lots of nervous negotiation, you managed to keep me insulated from almost all of it. My only job was to pack the furniture and move - you handled everything else! My daughter says she wants to be a realtor one day...hope you will be open to having an intern in a few years...

'Super-Fast, Super-Smooth Sale'
Out of all the realtors we interviewed, Chad and Patty actually made us excited about selling our home. Their great energy really set the stage for a super-fast, super-smooth sale. Their knowledge of the LA market was spot on, and we were wowed by what we achieved. Thank you!

Chad & Patty Helped Us Win 'Our House'
Only a week or so after we signed on with Chad and Patty, Chad left the following message on our phone: 'I found your house!' And here's the good part - he had. He had found our house. And you have to know that in order to pull off this feat, he had to have listened very carefully to our list of requirements and to our wishes. That, alone, would be grounds to highly recommend this crew, but that's not all. After Chad and Patty helped us win 'our house' away from 17 other bidders, they very patiently and kindly coached us through the maze of escrow and were even available after escrow to field questions and soothe jangled nerves. We do, without reservation, recommend these dedicated, competent, understanding realtors to all of you.

Hassle Free Delight
I would like to thank the wonderful 'Tag Team' of Patty and Chad. Their combined expertise and professionalism made the entire process of 'For Sale' to 'Close of Escrow' a hassle free delight. Thanks again -- you two are the best!

We Credit Chad For Making it All Happen
When a job relocation forced us to leave our home in Westwood, Chad was the first agent we called. We had met him months earlier at an open house, and his honesty and energy stuck in our minds. He was definitely the right man for the job: With Chad's marketing strategy and clear communication with potential buyers, we were able to sell our house within days, at a price that far exceeded our expectations. We credit Chad for making it all happen, and thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

Selling My House of 27 Years Was a Piece of Cake
Thank you for your tremendous help in sellng my home. Your indepth knowledge of the neighborhood and its sales history was initially very impressive and why I chose you to handle the sale. And that knowlege played out in your correct pricing of the property and marketing plan, which resulted in a quick sale at a maximum price. But in addition to your professional knowledge, I appreciated how you and your associate, Patty, treated me as if I were the only client you had, even though my property was probably one of the smaller ones you've handled. You were always quick to respond to my questions and generous with your counsel. Oh, and not that it matters, but you and Patty are also fun!
Because of you, selling my house of 27 years, which should have been traumatic, was a piece of cake!

Service Beyond My Expectations
Finally, an easy business transaction that was not only personal but comforting along the way. From the time I asked Chad Lund to list my house, until only 2 months later, I had service beyond my expectations. Appraisal, pricing, listing, marketing selling and closing were done in RECORD TIME. The price was right, the paperwork light, and I made a new friend in the process. What a pleasure it was, to work with the person as well as the business he so well represents. CHOOSE CHAD, for selling or buying your most prized posession. He's a champ!

Thanks for the Dedication
Thank you for your Dedication. It certainly shows. You made a difficult time less difficult for me. I appreciate all the extra trips to the house and your help with all of the large and small issues. This Zinfandel is from family Sonoma - I hope you enjoy.

Quick & Painless Sale
Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for all you did in making the sale of our house as quick and painless as possible. You were able to get several offers on the table after one week of marketing. Even after our original buyer backed out, your tenacity put a new buyer in excrow within 2 days for the same selling price. My wife Kristie and I were very impressed and would gladly recommend your services to any of our friends. Thank you and we look forward to doing business with you in the future.

We Recommended You To Our Neighbors!
Patricia and I want to express our gratitude for the guidance you and Patty provided us throughout the ordeal of selling our home. It was comforting to have the benefit of your experience and expertise. And, you were always accessible. For all these reasons we were pleased to recommend you to our neighbors who may now also experience your professionalism.

The Edge To Prevail!
We retained Chad Lund to sell our home and find our new home. When we were selling our home we apprciated the fact that Chad kept us informed regarding the feedback received from both the open houses and private showings. Chad was always ready, seemingly at a moments notice to meet a prospective buyer at our house. The service Chad provided continued during and after the close of escrow, as he was always available to answer our endless questions. In our home buying search Chad, and Patty were energetic in previewing potential homes and providing us with the information we needed to determine if a house was a potential match. When we identified the house on which we wanted to make an offer, Chad's advice provided us with the edge to prevail over three other bidders. In short, we were very pleased with the assistance we received on both ends of our transaction.

Savvy Real Estate Advise
Chad is wonderful to work with. I relocated from out of town and had to do house hunting and follow-up long distance. He showed me neighborhoods and houses in my price range that were perfect for me and he went out of his way to help me with items I couldn't handle because I wasn't living in the area. He gave me savvy advise in a competitive bidding situation, which resulted in me getting the house I wanted. I highly recommend Chad - he is concerned about what will make you happy in the long run, not just making the sale.
