Setting the Price

The price is the first thing buyers notice about your property. If you set your price too high, then the chance of alienating buyers is higher. You want your house to be taken seriously, and the asking price reflects how serious you are about selling your... Read more

Testimonials

"We found Ted and Gloria through a google search for realtors in the Monterey Bay Area. We got lucky. These two individuals are some of the most kind-hearted people we've ever had the pleasure of working with -- they treat us (not past-tense as we are still in touch!) like family! They not only helped to answer the infinite questions we had throughout the process, they made themselves available just about 24 hours a day; I'm not sure when they got any rest. They showed us a ton of homes and because of how quickly they respond and how flexible they are, we finally found "the one" and it likely would not have happened any other way. We were eating dinner and Ted responded to an e-mail I sent him about a home on the market, he called back in less than an hour with a viewing available made exclusively for us. Long story short, they helped us to negotiate a fair deal for both parties so that our offer was accepted and we now have the keys. Thank you Bindel's! We are really grateful to have become friends and we look forward to when other family/friends of ours get the chance to work with you!" Michelle and Anthony ..19 Spoleto Cir, Salinas, CA 93905
