I've had the most pleasant experience with both Chad and Patty. They helped us sell our investment properties, our home for 10 years, and before Patty helped find us the next home, she also helped with the leasing situation. Both of them are professional, trustworthy, and always patient with my millions of questions. I would recommend both of them anytime to anyone is looking for a realtor.

Buying a home is a monumental chapter of life. It can be stressful and fraught with challenges; but, Chad and Patty's wealth of experience, their level-headedness and all-around real estate know-how melt all worries away. They are trustworthy partners that are as determined as you are to find you the right home. It's comforting and reassuring to know that they are on your side. Your search for a real estate agent should start -- and stop -- with them.
~ David & Claire Markus 2014
Chad and Patty embody everything one could hope for in a real estate partner. They're honest, professional, responsive, punctual, insightful, and most importantly, competent. I was a bit worried about being a relatively small fry on Chad Lund's busy plate, but I truly believe I received all of the attention he would offer to a much larger deal. I would definitely do business with Chad & Patty at Teles again in the future, and have referred them to others.

"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 Transacation"
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.
"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!
~ Isabelle & Doug 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.
~ Susan & Kurt Bowerman October 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.
~ Bita Klein September 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!!!
~ Dave Viner & Diana Hardy July 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.
~ Rick Manke June 2008
"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!
~ Chris and Erin Acimovic July 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.
~ Kevin Heffernan & Sue Calder April 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.
~ Carla & Richard Satnick May 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!
~ Arne Schmidt February 2007
Thank you for your professionalism and assistance in selling our home and wishing you a strong year in 2007.
~ Don & Vicki Tyler 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.
~ Allen & Sybille McNamee January 2007
"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.
~ Lou Miller 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!
~ Bob & Debby Newman 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.
~ Kathy Vek October 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!
~ Suzie Kohno September 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.
~ Jan & Wendy July 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!
~ Mike Makofske June 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.
~ Gita Gupta-Garcia and Jorge Garcia February 2006
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.
~ Chris & Jennifer Morris 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.
~ Brian & Gabriela Wilbur September 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...
~ Sam Martinuzzi June 2005
"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!
~ Amy and Andrew Sjoblom March 2005
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.
~ Jill and Richard Rosen December 2004
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!
~ Renee Fox August 2004
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.
~ Rob & Sarah Durand July 2004
I just wanted to say that your were a pleasure to work with on this deal. Thank you for all of your compromises, and for being so patient with all my little requests. I hope your year is successful, and look forward to our next transaction together. All the best to you and yours and thanks again.
~ Carol Lefkowitz June 2004
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!
~ Kathleen DesRosiers March 2004
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!
~ Nancy Lappen March 2004
Making It Easy
Thanks again for the excellent work and for making it easy for us. Let me know if I can serve as a reference on any of your potential listings. I especially appreciate the organization and attention to the small details.
~ Mike December 2003
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.
~ Joanne Tegeler October 2003
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.
~ Thomas E. Smith October 2003
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.
~ Allan & Liz Cohen June 2003
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.
~ Cathy from Orange County April 2003
