We are writing this letter to express are supreme pleasure in working with you Ted. We are especially appreciative of your professionalism and your 20 years experience showed many times.
Ted you were very aggresive in pricing and marketing our home. Your excellent color brochures and virtual tours were the best we have ever seen. Our home sold in a very short time and for the highest price ever in our housing subdidvision. Not only that, Ted you negotiated a 21 day escrow and a 30 day rent back at no cost to us.
Our home sold at such a high value that even when the review appraisal came in $105,000 less than what we sold it for. Ted you still facilitated the sale and the buyers paid our full sales price.
We thoroughly enjoyed you representing us Ted and would highly recommend you for the sale of anyone else's home.

Ted handled the purchase of my home very professionally. He followed through on getting the demands I made on my home purchase and even followed through 6 months after I bought settling a problem in the home in my favor. I would indeed recommend him to sell or buy a home.
Ted Lingenfelter is the only Broker/Agent I recommend to family and friends with the highest level of confidence! Mr. Lingenfelter knows how to close deals in the shortest possible amount of time-our family has known him for approximately ten years and has experienced flawless transactions every time! My family is able to trust Ted's expertise when we have bought, sold and rented our properties.
Each and every transaction has gone so smoothly when Ted is involved-he has an excellent reputation in the community and is able to close all deals in a win-win manner! Ted has assisted my parents in selling a beloved home in Anaheim Hills during a family health crisis-his patience, care, understanding and overall kindness will never be forgotten! Working with family members with backgrounds in finance as well as real estate who are meticulous with details along with family members who have limited concepts of real estate terminology are one of Ted's many skill sets-not to mention an extensive knowledge of legal matters pertaining to homes-trusts/title/law/etc. It is extremely comforting to know that your Broker has such patience and can be reached every day at any time to address issues as they arise-when to be honest, you may not want to hear about it or know how to handle a situation (involving tenants/rentals). Mr. Lingenfelter's paperwork is also perfect!
Mr. Lingenfelter's integrity and honesty as a person is stellar. As an owner of several properties, particularly in Laguna Beach and Orange County, it is critical that the contractors, escrow companies, building departments and other Realtors are comfortable working with a person of moral character. Our family will continue to access Mr. Lingenfelter's services as long as we are lucky enough to have him in our lives. We are happy to personally speak with any clients that may need further information.
Ted Lingenfelter is one of the most professional realtors I have ever known and a pleasure to work with. We utilized his professional services for selling our home and would not hesitate recommending him to the most discriminating clients.
Throughout the entire selling process, Ted was caring, creative, conscientious and motivated. His work-ethic was extraordinary. He was easy to stay in contact with and would return emails and phone calls promptly. Often I would send him an email in the late hours and receive an immediate reply. I always felt as though I was his only client even though I knew he had a very busy schedule.
Buying and selling a home is stressful, yet Ted maintained an upbeat and positive attitude and constantly worked the “comps” in order to ensure we were in the right ballpark as a seller.
When we initially contacted Ted, he was very responsive without being pushy. He allowed us to work through the ups and downs of my nervousness as a seller, while being very helpful. He let me work the way I was comfortable and adapted to my style.
South West Realty is a fabulous real estate company and I can honestly say that Ted’s 25 years of experience exceeded ALL of our expectations!
We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have selected Ted Lingenfelter and Victoria Quinn as our co-listers. They knew the area well and had years of experience in the business. Their connections with other Brokers in the area is greatly respected. All of this paid off to sell our home.
The support and knowledge provided was excellent.
The exposure provided to prospective Buyers was extraordinary. They provided a professional Video Tour, a custom For-Sale sign and numerous listings on the Internet. We received 29,302 Search Views and 1,092 Detailed Views.
Visitors received printed color brochures and detailed handouts on the features of our home for review.
They worked hard with open houses and follow-ups with Buyers showing interest.
They provided excellent advise and also listened to our thoughts and wishes. A true Team Effort.
The entire process of selling a home is very complicated, but their knowledge and expertize resulted in a very satisfactory experience from negotiating offers, handling Inspection Results and the many, many steps in the process to closing.
All Brokers will promise performance. But you can count 100% on Ted and Victoria. Our own experience backs this up. A very satisfactory Team Effort.
I originally had my home listed with another agent. After having no activity whatsoever after a month or so I asked Ted if he wanted to sell my house. Of course he said yes! In less than a month he had 2 interested buyers and my house sold. He even got the buyer to allow me to stay in my house as long as I needed in order to find my new house. Fortunately within a few days Ted found my one story house!! I highly recommend Ted to anyone! He is definitely a professional and a great negotiator. He also has a lot of patience because I was constantly calling him with questions and he was always available and he never got frustrated with me. Most important, Ted is honest , he has integrity and he's a gentleman.
We'd use him again. We thought selling a home long distance would be a nightmare. He did it all! We only had to sit back and sign.
Ted Lingenfelter is a consummate professional. From the moment he listed our house in Dana Point to moving in to our new home in Fallbrook was less than thirty days. He should be wearing a cape, and have an "S" on his chest. These were the second and third Real Estate transactions he represented us for. There is no one I would turn to besides Ted Lingenfelter.
Ted is an attentive and conscientious real estate professional. Because he has been in the business for many years, I feel that Ted brings a high level of experience to the field. My personal experience with Ted was great! I appreciated all of the up to date marketing tools that he brought to the table. The whole transaction happened quickly and we got the price we wanted which was due to Ted's impressive negotiating skills. It was always easy to reach him during the transaction, and if he wasn't immediately available he always responded quickly. Another thing that I appreciated was his ability to keep a cool head in dealing with a wide array of personalities on both the sellers' and buyers' side. I highly recommend Ted if you are in the market to list or purchase a property.
