"Todd Armstrong is a professional of the highest caliber. He is honest, reliable, knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator. He knows his business, and to top it all off, he is a very nice person. I first worked with Todd in 2007, when he helped me sell a house that was part of an estate of which I was executor. In that instance, he helped me find an excellent contractor and then provided invaluable assistance in preparing the house for sale. The house showed beautifully and sold quickly. In March of 2013, I again worked with Todd when he helped my sell my own house. He again did a superb job and my home sold within three days. A month later I bought a beautiful historic craftsman. Todd served as the buyer's agent in that transaction. I hold Todd in the highest regard as a businessman and as a human being. I consider myself fortunate to have had the benefit of his knowledge and expertise." back to top
"What a great experience! Not only did Todd sell our house faster than anticipated, but it was an enjoyable process! In my opinion, Todd's best characteristic is his communication; I always knew that at any time I could call, text or email him and he would respond very quickly- if not immediately. He also did a great job using online tools to market our property and get the word out. Thanks Todd, we have already and will continue to refer you to our anyone buying or selling!
"Todd helped me purchase my first home in 2007 and he was awesome. So when it was time to purchase our second house this year, I never even thought about going with another agent. Buying the second home turned out to be more of a challenge. Todd was able to work through a difficult international transaction (seller lives overseas) with time zone/day of the week differences, tricky international escrow/title procedures, and a very demanding buyer (me). Todd stepped up held the entire transaction together, coordinated almost every aspect of the deal and expedited paperwork/people when it/they needed it. He always answered my call or text, gave me real time updates when there was an important issue we were tracking and just never let up until the deal was closed. NO OTHER AGENT could have done this deal better! He knows his stuff and works hard to make his clients happy. Thanks again Todd!" back to top
"Thank you very much for all of your help along the way and for being patient with me during the whole buying process. I know I could be picky at times but I never felt pressured to buy something I didn?t feel comfortable with and I appreciate that. I also am a big fan of promptness with returning phone calls and e-mails and you guys both shine in that area. You were great, Richard was great, and I?ll definitely send anyone I know from now on who is looking to buy or sell a house your way. Also, when I sell my house and move into something bigger, I will definitely be working with you guys on all ends of the buying and selling process. Thanks again!!!

"Todd Armstrong delivered, plain and simple.
When we interviewed Todd we gave him a very simple requirement: sell our place fast for a good price. The results: We had multiple offers within a week of listing our property, which were well within our selling range. In fact, our property sold so fast we were actually surprised and had to hurry in order to make arrangements for our next move; a great problem to have!
What was his magic? He helped put together a great plan, did a great job marketing, made the place look dynamite, and executed! He utilized the services of Keith Roberti, a professional designer, to stage our property and help seal the deal. Todd even personally loaned us some of his own contemporary furniture in order to add the exclamation point!
We were super impressed with Todd and would definitely recommend him to those in need of a first class real-estate agent. Kudos to Todd and his team!

"We began looking for a home to buy in February 2009 and went through numerous disappointments with our realtor. We finally got so frustrated with our realtor that we quit looking. In February 2010 I talked to Todd Armstrong and he assured me that I really needed to get back in the real estate market and that my negative experience with our previous realtor should not influence our decision to buy. Todd recommended me to his partner, Richard Woods. This experience was like night and day to the previous one. Richard Woods was the consummate professional. He treated us with respect and courtesy. The thing we most appreciated was that Richard did not treat us as if he was superior and had all the answers. He took the time to really understand what we were looking for in a home and provided us a very focused search for that property. His search parameters were so focused that we found our dream home in only the second property we visited.
The superior customer service did not stop there though. Richard saw how much we liked the home we had just visited that he took the imitative to contact the seller even though he was late for another appointment. We informed Richard that we would like to make on offer on the house and he must have worked until midnight putting together an offer for us to present the next morning. The offer was accepted and Richard than went into overdrive to ensure nothing could derail our chance at buying this home. He was proactive on every detail of the disclosures, seller, lender and the title company. Everything looked benign to us, but behind the scenes Richard was working hard to ensure every detail was prepared in advance of deadlines. Our new home closed on the exact day it was supposed to. We are now enjoying our beautiful new retirement home in a golf course community. Thank you Todd Armstrong for the referral and most of all, Thank You Richard Woods for your tireless professional service.

"Todd Armstrong and his real estate group was recently published in an article of top business experts in their field in American Chronicle Magazine.
"I was approached to discuss my online marketing approach to San Diego's ever changing real estate market. I emphasized that my focus and majority of my marketing dollars are being spent on internet advertising. Most experts agree that 87% of home buyers begin their home search on the internet. I believe that number is much higher."
Todd continues, "I don't know anyone nowadays that does not use the internet to find their home. I mix some print articles, some postcards with my online marketing to provide my seller clients maximum global exposure of their home. I also utilize the latest technology, social networking and numerous websites to promote my client's homes." It works out for sellers because buyers are finding their homes on mulitple websites. My team loves it because it provides a steady stream of buyer leads looking for a Realtor to help them on their home search."

"We began the home buying process from Virginia where my husband was stationed. We received orders to San Diego the first week of October. So we made a quick trip out here to look at some places. Unfortunately our price range is also the same as many investors and they brought cash to the table that we just didn?t have. We returned to Virginia and continued, with Todd?s help, to search for homes and put offers. Deciding to use Todd as our Realtor was the best decision we made. He offered us personalized service even though we were not in the market for an expensive home. Since the market is very low and investors are beating out first time home buyers like ourselves it took a little longer than we expected for an offer to get accepted. Todd had really wanted to get us into a new home by Christmas and when he was unable to he apologized, even though it wasn?t his fault.
We ended up getting an offer accepted on a foreclosure, which was larger than we thought we would be able to afford. Since it was a foreclosure we had to deal with a lot of waiting on the bank, but we never had to wait on Todd. Even if he had no news for us he would check in to let us know what was going on. I really felt like Todd wanted us to find us a Home as much as we wanted to. He really cared about what we wanted and didn?t want us to settle for anything we would regret. Todd constantly made sure that we were comfortable with what the bank and the mortgage company were asking of us. After getting an offer accepted Todd worked very hard contacting the bank and the listing agent to get all the information needed and push the process through. We would not have gotten this house without Todd?s determination and hard work. It was definitely not an easy deal but Todd worked very hard and never complained or showed any sign that he wanted to give up. Thank you so much for everything you did for us we are finally homeowners and loving it!!

"Buying a home from 3000 miles away could not have been easier. Todd Armstrong is a true professional and a dedicated service provider. During my adventure to find a home in 10 days he delivered quality service and was true to his word. Todd does what he says. My adventure started with three different Realtors all of whom seemed to not have the time to answer their phone much less realize that I needed personalized service due to my situation. His proven 56-step method allowed me to find, write a contract, and close on a property all with in the span of four weeks.
Todd treated me with respect unlike the other agents that only want to sell to a certain upper level clientele or price range. With Todd it did not matter if I had a seven-figure budget or a 200,000 dollar price range, he was more concerned with what I wanted and needed. Together we were able to work as a team and combined with respect and organizational skills, his ability to deliver, blew me out of the water.
He is for lack of better words, a "closer" who possesses the negotiation skills that make other agents look like a chump. I would not hesitate to refer any of my closet friends, colleagues or even my grandmother to Todd to purchase a home. As a first time homebuyer I could not have asked for a better experience.
"Todd helped my wife and I buy our first house a little over a year ago. We are notoriously tough customers and have very high expectations when it comes to getting what we want. We searched for the right house for more than a year. We made multiple offers and counter offers in a negotiating process that took months. We worked with two mortgage brokers that he recommended and got the best interest rate out there. We closed escrow on time which was very important to us. Todd was the right man for the job. He was there every step of the way and was very knowledgeable, patient, and professional. No question was too small, no request was to large. I would recommend him to my closest friends and family. He's the best. Thanks again Todd! R.J. Wackerman" back to top
"Two years ago, as the San Diego market started to soften, Todd helped me trade an investment property for a new and upscale townhouse in a much sought after location. In order to avoid tax consequences, he suggested a 1031 exchange and directed me to the appropriate company for such a transaction.Todd fielded my many phone calls without a whimper. I now have a real estate agent for life." back to top
"Todd Armstrong is a consummate professional and a gentleman. Todd assisted me in selling a house that was part of an estate of which I am executor. Throughout the process, I was impressed with his knowledge of the real estate business, his integrity, and his ability to communicate clearly. He referred me to an excellent contractor, and made valuable recommendations regarding house renovations that were needed. He returned my calls promptly, answered my questions completely, and kept me informed at all stages of the process. He was very well organized and did an excellent job of guiding me through the detailed paperwork. The result of all his hard work was that the house sold in three weeks, and he earned my eternal respect, gratitude, and admiration.
"Todd listed my condo during a very rough patch in the real estate market. He was great in keeping me updated on any activity or interest in my condo, and even went beyond the call of duty by watering my plants and keeping my place tidy when I was out of town. We sold the place in a month (after it had already been on the market with another agent for 4 months). I recommend Todd with the utmost enthusiasm. Thanks again Todd!
