“My experience with Avalar (now Better Homes Realty San Diego) San Diego was great.  Linda Gregory was awesome to work with.  She was always willing to meet on short notice and stuck with me for over a year until I finally found my new home.  Thanks again Linda!”…..Chris

“Linda was referred by my attorney as I do not live in San Diego but had a property to sell there. The property has been a rental for almost 20 years. Linda was honest and gave a fair opinion on what needed to be done to show the property so that I would maximize my offers. Her attention to detail and her responsiveness was tremendous and I felt she truly cared about my needs. Closing went smoothly. I could not say enough about her. She was wonderful.”


“This was the second property purchase for us with Fred & Linda. Both times, they were well-prepared, patient, and thorough. I have recommended them to friends because I know that they won’t disappoint them.” ……Lisa

“Linda was extremely knowledgeable and patient throughout every single process of our home buying experience. Not only did she help us buy our first home, but our dream home as well. She comes highly recommended by my husband and I. She is familiar with all of San Diego and is willing to go the extra mile for her clients.”

“I have had many experiences with real estate agents, both professionally and personally, and none could ever compare with what it was like working with Linda. When we weren’t able to modify our loan and we needed to sell, Linda came highly recommended. I’m so thankful that we began working with her. She is a wonderful person and a most professional agent. She is truly committed to her clients. She was right there with us from beginning to end, remaining in constant contact. I was further impressed during the transaction how she communicated with all the parties of the transaction (i.e. escrow, buyers agents…) Very impressed. I’m very appreciative for all of her expertise and hard work that she put into our deal. It’s a wonderful feeling, also, to know that in the future I won’t be searching for an agent. I’ve already found her!”

 “You come very highly recommended by us.  We have nothing but good things to say about you and Fred.  We are really enjoying living out here!”

“Our neighbors have been so warm and inviting.  They put together a huge Halloween event just for our kids.  It was such a success that it made the local paper!

We decided not to have a New Year’s party…too much still that needs to be done, but we can’t wait to have you guys up to see what we have done!”

“Absolutely.  I was completely satisfied and happy with your work as well as your husbands. “

A Testimonial letter received from a Happy Seller

Dear Fred and Linda,

Janet and I wanted to take this opportunity to formally thank you both for your superb support in helping us sell our home in Rancho Penasquitos.   You will receive a similar note in the mail.

It had been 17 years since we last relocated.  Things had changed during that period and we felt like we were going into this process blind.  You both helped to show the way.

We selected four agents to consider.  We interviewed three of the four.  After much thought, we now know we made the right choice when we asked you to represent us.  Your wealth of knowledge and experience, preparation of a sound and effective business plan, then following the plan, as well as your dedication and responsiveness, proved to be the difference in helping to sell our home.  Based on your thorough and timely research of the market, you helped us establish the right price for our home; the offer came in within the established range.  From the time we listed our home with you until we received the offer, 42 days had passed; beating your own on-market average of 60 days.  Not bad in a depressed market!

Fred, thank you for recommending Judy Myers.  She has proven to be a tireless professional and has been extremely helpful in helping us find a new home.  Going this extra step on our behalf is yet another reason that we now know we made the right decision in working with you.

Linda, we can’t thank you enough for all the “hand-holding” that you did for us; walking us through the process, ensuring us that events we were experiencing were normal and were to be expected.  You always were the voice of reason; helping to calm our nerves when we needed a sanity check, or simply needed to know that we really would get through this process.  When events looked like they were not going in the right direction, you were there to reassure us and to hold things together.  While there were hiccups along the way, we closed escrow within a day of the date originally scheduled.

We are now in the process of looking for a new home in the East Bay Area working with an agent that you recomened, thanks to your efforts.  For us, the hard part is now behind us, and the fun part has begun.  Thank you again for all your efforts.

With our deepest appreciation and our most sincere thanks,

Terry and Janet
