Linda Moore Encinitas Real Estate Testimonials
I enjoyed doing business with Linda Moore when selling my home in Encinitas.
She was competent, cheerful, energetic, dependable, and very informed about the properties in the area. I particularly appreciate her dealing with contractors repairing my home. She kept me informed and was most professional in placing my property on the market and selling it at a good price.
I highly recommend her as an excellent real estate agent.

When it came time to sell my Encinitas home, there was only one person to call: Linda Moore. I recognized Linda for decades of hard work in the neighborhood, and as the #1 Realtor in Encinitas. As a graphic designer, I admired Linda’s marketing expertise, tenacious work ethic, and excellent reputation. My first hand experience with Linda proved to be beyond my expectations. As usual, Linda over-delivered including an exceptional, creative “coming soon campaign” including a professional house video, gorgeous photos, and terrific marketing endeavors.
Linda worked hard from the very beginning, giving great advice as to what things should be repaired or enhanced that were affordable, yet were effective in return for the money. Linda obtained very reasonable bids for painting, staging, landscape, carpet and other items. I was able to move out and leave the rest to Linda. She organized and oversaw each contractor from start to finish.
The end result was better than I could have imagined! 11 offers, resulting in the highest sale in the neighborhood, almost 10 percent over asking price! Linda’s is a tactful, caring, effective negotiator.
It didn’t stop there. During the escrow process, Linda handled and oversaw a very challenging repair issue, and kept the deal intact, closing on time (all cash, two week close!)
If you are thinking of buying or selling a home, Linda Moore is THE ONE TO CALL.
Linda Moore recently sold our home in Encinitas, CA. Her initiative and drive proved to be valuable assets as she aggressively marketed our home with Coldwell Banker’s online presence, as well as her own marketing tools.
Linda’s communication skills were excellent and she proactively guided us through the somewhat complicated process of selling our home. As novices, her advice was sound and proved to be key in the final sale. She was very responsive to all our questions and calls, as well as considerate of our schedule/timing related to showings, open houses, etc.
I would highly recommend Linda Moore as a partner when selling or buying a home.
I have followed Linda's career in the neighborhood for several decades, and always knew she'd be THE one and only Realtor to sell my Encinitas home.
Linda will give you a comprehensive list of the things she promised to do for you when she is representing your house. I have seen her do these things, and she is absolutely amazing. When someone does anything with great ability, it is like an art. Linda is an artist.
I do worry that Linda works too hard, but if she were not available as much as she makes herself (she's always there for her clients anytime of the day or night), you and real estate would be less for it.
I had a great experience with Linda listing and selling my home, and I look forward to many continued years of friendship. I would not hesitate in recommending Linda Moore to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home!
My wife Gretchen and I were highly impressed with the services from Linda Moore and Coldwell Banker for the sale of our house. We first contacted Linda since she is well known in our neighborhood. She impressed us on our first meeting with how she prepared for the meeting. She provided us lots of information on comparable properties in the area that were either for sale or had recently sold. This information included the listing price, the selling price, the days on the market, $/sq. ft., etc. She also provided us information on the services of Coldwell Banker. As w were preparing our house for sale, Linda provided us names of contractors that helped us with painting, carpet cleaning, handyman tasks, window washing, electricians, plumbers, appliance repair techs, etc. She also educated us on the benefits of staging the house for sale. After signing the contract and listing the house, she had the house photographed and put together an excellent flier. She also held an open house for agents and potential buyers. It took only 5 days to get an offer that exceeded our high asking price. We even got a back-up offer. During the inspection period, Linda helped us through some trying times with her experience and expertise. My wife and I sometimes took bets on how long it would take Linda to return a phone call; which rarely exceeded a few minutes.
In summary, Linda was professional, very organized, experienced, well connected, and highly responsive. I would be happy to be a reference for her at any time.
Linda Moore represented us for the recent sale of our home of 22 years in Encinitas, CA.
We had just bought our dream home and, like most buyers in today's market, we needed to buy without contingency on selling our current home. After closing on the purchase, we needed every advantage in selling our home without complexity or delay and at the best possible price.
Linda brought in all the right people to bring the house into order for sale, started the marketing effort, and listed the house. Within a few days of listing, we had multiple, solid offers from well qualified buyers. Linda helped us to reason through the choice of offers so that the offer we accepted went through to conclusion within 30 days AND at our asking price!
We understand that no agent can guarantee a favorable sale, but there is no doubt in our minds that Linda removed all possible variables and optimized EVERYTHING to get us to a smooth closing within 30 days. Linda's ability comes from long experience and an enthusiastic thoroughness with all the details that might usually worry a seller. We knew we made the right decision from the first meeting with her.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to Linda for helping to complete our dreams with hardly a worry.

Just a quick note to tell you how delighted we were with our experience with your firm and our agent Linda Moore. Linda is a true professional and lives up to her "selling the neighborhood." She understands the market and her thorough research was invaluable in setting our asking price. She is tenacious and always follows through on her commitments. She has great marketing skills and while it is easy to jump at the first offer an agent may bring you our experience demonstrated that a solid marketing plan can yield higher quality and priced offers. While bringing solid credentials and experience to the deal most importantly Linda is a wonderful person who understands how important a real estate transaction is to a family. She has my full endorsement and I would gladly work with her again and recommend her to any seller looking for great representation.
Experience, success, and integrity are some of the qualities that Linda Moore has to offer when assigned the sale of a property. One gets the impression that she is always within reach either through email, text, or phone and if a call goes to the voicemail it is quickly returned. Her expert advice and maturity helped to overcome challenges and make it a smooth transaction/sale.
We wanted to write to tell you about our experience with Linda Moore. We fell in love with Encinitas and decided that this was where we wanted to retire from Northern California. When we contacted Linda, she got started right away sending us listings that she thought would interest us. When we finally got down to Encinitas, Linda went out of her way to spend the afternoon with us to show us the town, neighborhoods and outlying areas. She took the time to get to know us and learn what was important to us. She lead us to neighborhood that we fell in love with.
After returning to Northern, CA Linda kept in contact with us. We were impressed with her expertise and guidance. We were kept informed of new listings. She went to look at homes for us and ended up finding us the perfect house to buy. We could not have done this without her. While still in Northern, CA Linda lead the way through the easiest home purchasing transaction that we have ever had. She took photos, kept us informed, lined up the lender, the escrow, and all inspections. We felt completely taken care of, and everyone that we dealt with had only great things to say about Linda.
Linda has continued to be there for us even after the purchase of our home. She was a trusted resource when we needed advice about the sale of our existing home. She has gone above and beyond in helping us make our dream of living in Encinitas a reality.
We both highly recommend Linda as a professional and extremely knowledgeable Realtor with a reputation to match.

Count on Linda to deliver! She is results-oriented and very well organized, not to mention thorough. My wife and I are very grateful for Linda's hard work and dedication...and our new home! Thanks Linda.

It is really hard to narrow down the number of qualities that Linda possesses. She is capable, honest, energetic, thorough, wise, and savvy. There were several examples when she stood her ground with other agents and made sure they were acting in a proper manner. She is also a woman of absolute integrity. I trusted her completely and soon realized that she had my best interests at heart and that I should follow her advice. We made some minor repairs at her suggestion, stage the property, and received three offers above asking price within 24 hours of listing. My son Jim worked with us and we both agreed that Linda is the most capable person we have ever worked with in any industry. We realize why she receives so much praise, and so many referrals, and why she is so successful.

To Whom It May Concern,
This is a brief testimonial and expression of appreciation for Linda Moore, the most professional and competent realtor in the Encinitas area. Having both purchased and sold homes with Linda’s guidance, I have only praise for her talents and competence. For me, Linda Moore is the Queen of Real Estate.
She does everything with the highest standards. Her presentations are thorough and informative and she answers all questions with a calm demeanor that puts a seller at ease. Her reservoir of information on any topic pertaining to real estate is boundless and impressive. She can explain any and all of the documents pertaining to the sale of a home in San Diego County.
The brochures, advertisements, and video tours she prepares for the homes she lists are works of art that compel buyers to visit the property, but before they are printed, she makes sure the home is staged well, and in impeccable condition. Her team of repairmen, painters and landscapers are all talented and take care of things quickly to ready a home for sale. They know that she will accept nothing less than their best work and they are happy to meet her expectations.
During the complexities of home transactions, Linda is always calm and helpful and ready to talk at any time of day. She always returns phone calls and emails immediately even if she must call again later to discuss an issue. She lets you know that you are heard and are important to her, and that is superb customer service.
Finally, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage must be proud to have her represent them. Jeff Hayes, her Principal Broker is supportive and helpful to her clients as is her transaction coordinator, Holly, who has mastered every detail of the supporting paperwork. When all is in escrow, the West Coast Escrow team is friendly but supremely competent. They all work together to make the Encinitas Coldwell Banker office the finest in the business. Linda Moore would not be there if it were not.
It has been my pleasure to work with Linda and all those mentioned above.
My sincerest thanks to you all,
The purpose of this letter is to share my thoughts in regards to Linda Moore as a real estate sales professional. Linda has been my realtor for 6 years. I had originally met her approximately 7-8 years ago at an open house. My wife and I were taking our time looking for a home as we knew that the real estate market was declining. During that year and a half long process we met numerous agents, all of which were attempting to convince us that we needed to purchase a home soon while the market was down and rates were low. Linda was the one and only realtor who suggested that we take our time because the market was still on a decline. She immediately earned our trust and our business.
Six years ago we finally found a single family home in Cardiff. It was underpriced to be sold “As Is” and had 8 offers in the first week on the market, the week of Christmas. The offers were all within a few thousand dollars of each other and we got the home. Furthermore, the inspector discovered undisclosed previous damage in the attic. Despite our comfort with the issue Linda insisted getting cash back from the seller for the issue. We received $5,000 cash back.
By early 2013 our family had grown larger and with two small children we were ready to move up. Inventory was extremely low and our prospects of finding a home we loved were slim. Subsequently Linda found us a home. She texted me the day the home was listed, secured us an appointment to see the home the next day, and submitted our offer immediately. After two days, the home had six offers over asking price. Linda presented our offer to the seller and convinced her that despite our offer being $25,000 below the highest offer that we were the perfect family for the home. At the same time she sold our home in Cardiff. We received an all cash offer above asking price and a closing date early enough for us to use the proceeds as part of our down payment for our new house.
I have confidently referred Linda to my in-laws and friends who have all had the same great experiences with Linda. There is no other realtor I would even consider. I know that when Linda is working for me that she is totally committed and engaged. She communicates with us immediately when developments occur, she is an outstanding negotiator, she has great relationships with other realtors (another reason we got our latest home), and does not let any detail go unnoticed.

What makes a good Realtor? Honesty, dependability, knowledge, resourcefulness, cooperative, pleasant disposition, hard worker, clear thinker, flexible attitude.
Honesty - By far the most important quality in any line of service, especially in either buying or selling home properties because so much value is involved, and so much personal attachment is usually present. As a buyer and a seller of nine homes in a lifetime, Alene and I have met 18 different Realtors and Linda Moore is the best of the group. Not only did she shine in the nine attributes listed above in answer to "What makes a good Realtor?", but she was fun to work with.
We met Linda several times when she was handling the "Neighborhood Watch Program" and when she was guiding sales of our neighborhood homes. She lived one block up the street from us and she knew the area extremely well. She was able to guide us very timely in pricing, showing, repairing, and closing our sale. No one could do it better.

Linda Moore was great to work with. I had ongoing dealings with her for over a year through which Linda demonstrated knowledge and expertise in the real estate industry. Professionalism and courtesy at all times. Linda went out of her way in many instances: 1) to put my mind at rest when things were overwhelmingly slow and and complicated and 2) picked up my mail when I was out of town in case paperwork from the lender arrived during my absence. I commend Coldwell Banker and especially Linda for all you do to reach out to people.
Gita St. John
I can't say enough about the service we got from Linda Moore. Her constant professionalism, clarity, attention to detail, and never-ending enthusiasm made this sale a dream. From the (very wise) suggestion to "stage" the property to her always timely responses to calls and emails, she never faltered.
If anyone deserves a Maui vacation, it's Linda Moore! From the minute I signed up Linda seemed to be shot out of a cannon; and before I knew it I was closing a very smooth escrow at a great price!
I would not think twice about hiring Linda to sell my next house and if you "really" want to sell your house, you'll call Linda!
We are providing this testimonial for Linda Moore who we worked with on the recent purchase of our investment property, 7943 Repressa Circle, Carlsbad. Linda is a true professional. She guided us every step of the way and went out of her way to ensure we had the information we needed as quickly as possible. We worked together to ensure that when we traveled from San Francisco for our house hunting trip everything was lined up and ready to go. In one weekend we were able to determine which house was best for us and to put in an offer. Linda immediately called Diana at the Rental Xperts so she could meet with us and also evaluate the houses we were looking at. Linda's quick decision to call Diana, her "can do" attitude, her pragmatic approach, and her positive perspective made it all possible. We trusted her ethics and judgement and we weren't disappointed. She is a truly exemplary agent. We highly recommend her for all of those qualities as well as her deep knowledge of the area and experience in real estate.

To Whom It May Concern,
This letter is well overdue. It slipped between my files and was forgotten. I apologize because Linda Moore deserves all my compliments and respect.
Linda worked hard to help me find my home. She made sure I took the time to look at all possibilities in my price range. She presented me with options I would not have found on my own. I was a first-time buyer and Linda helped to get me a fair price and educated me so I felt confident in my purchase. Her help was invaluable. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Linda Moore!
To whom it may concern,
I am writing this letter to talk about the value of an experienced realtor in the purchase of a home. My family and I recently decided to sell our home of 11 years and purchase a newer larger home within the same community that we have resided for many years. We turned to Linda Moore who had helped us 11 years earlier when we purchased our existing home. At that time, she was helpful and professional in that sale of our home and everything went smoothly and as planned. So when decided to purchase a larger home, we again turned to Linda to help out in this process and expected the same smooth process to occur. Well as it turned out, our new purchase did not go as planned. We had the unfortunate occasion to enter into a purchase transaction with a homeowner who did not feel as though she had to follow the contracted agreement and to make things worse, had a realtor representing her who was unprofessional, confrontational and reluctant (or unable) to get his homeowner to follow the purchase agreement guidelines and timelines. It was in this uncomfortable situation where Linda’s extensive industry experience really shined as she professionally responded to the numerous emails and phone calls from this realtor who tried to bully us into signing off on our contingency agreement prior to having all conditions met. For what seemed like weeks, Linda stood up to this realtor (a younger family member of a well known San Diego realty group) and secured all conditions of our contract under great pressure from this realtor. In the end, Linda used her experience and know how as well as industry relationships to bypass this realtor and reach out to and collaborate with the founding family members of this realty group to resolve all conditions (in our favor) and close the deal. In closing, may I say that if you are in the process of researching realtors to represent you in, look for someone with experience. You won’t realize the value of it until you need it.
Linda Moore did an excellent job representing me in the sale of my house in Encinitas. In fact we were all surprised when my house sold in just four days, nothing any of us expected. I had lived in the house for 37 years and was unfamiliar with all the new rules, regulations and paperwork it took to sell a house theses days. Linda did a wonderful job guiding me through the transaction. I had a short escrow and a lot had to be done in a very timely manner. Linda kept on top of things and the escrow closed on the buyers requested date. The only thing I had to do was pack up quickly. My best to Linda and her team and if you need a person to represent you as a buyer or a seller Linda is the person to call. Sincerely Linda Lee
We were extremely fortunate to have Linda Moore as our Realtor! It's not an easy task finding a home in CA for a family that resides in PA, but Linda did it. We were impressed with the way Linda heard what we were looking for and found us a home that exceeded our expectations. Additionally she helped us through the finance process, was an outstanding resource for vendors and local businesses. We were amazed by how focused Linda was on finding us the right home. She was prompt (exceptionally so) at answering our calls and emails. Although we know Linda had other clients, she continually made us feel like we were her first priority. We consider Linda our friend not just our Realtor. Regards, Candice
Dealing with the months of emotions as well as the legal paperwork and physical work needed to sell my parents' home had left me exhausted. It was therefore amazingly helpful to choose Linda Moore (after interviewing several realtors) and have her step in and help guide us through the process of getting the home listed, prepped and sold.
Not only did she take the job of selling a "unique" old remodel during a rather bleak financial market, but she did so with an infectiously energetic positive attitude. She was meticulously thorough with my paperwork, and went above and beyond, giving me tips, phone #s of cleaning crews and electricians, and helping me fill out forms... without such help, it would have cost me a lot of extra time, or worse, I would not have sold the house at all.
She was empathetic to my fatigue and went to bat for me numerous times, negotiating carefully, and often tempering questionable or irrational buyers into rational equitable buyers, always looking for the right fit for both sides. Her decades of experience showed here, and she listened to my requests/needs and tactfully balanced them against what she knew could be accomplished, and offered advice in a professional productive way.
Linda has been a pleasure to work with, and I am extremely satisfied with her service. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional helpful real estate experience.
Thank you so much for everything, Linda, including the photo CD's you dropped off yesterday! The luckiest think I ever did was call you and discover for myself what and outstanding person you are. Thank you for the homes you showed me in Encinitas and for representing me and selling Latana despite all the turmoil. It is hopefully done now since the buyers signed the loan docs and it is supposed to fund tomorrow. Don't want to jinx anything, but to express my appreciation for you in words that don't capture the degree of same. Your competence and utter coolness in volatile emotional situations are unsurpassable. Your knowledge of the market, your professional excellence and your charming personality, low keyed disposition and endless capacity to work to get things done are reflected in your #1 position in North County. Congratulations and may your success continue far into the future. I am so Grateful for all your service in selling my home.
Linda was terrific in handling the two investment properties we purchased. One was bank owned and the other conventional. She also helped us with offers on short sales. Linda was knowledgeable on each of these situations and kept us informed along the way. She was always available and very responsive. She provided good insight into areas, types of properties and what we could expect in terms rental operation (issues, rent values, recommendations on upgrades etc.) While one of the properties was in escrow Linda Even went out of her way to help us show it to a prospective tenant. We had that property rented and occupied just four days after the close of escrow. – The Johnsons

I look forward to the next time we buy a home in San Diego, and we will certainly work with (and recommend) Linda again. She made loyal fans out of us, and we are spreading the word.
You are lucky to have Linda on your team.

We just wanted to take the time to thank you for all your hard work and time that you invested with us.
We appreciated all those times that you drove to all those houses that were in our search critieria (which, pretty much consisted of all of SD county). You were always available to us, even with our odd schedule. Your opinions and input of the various houses was always taken into consideration. You were honest, but never pushed us. You are a true advocate to first time home buyers. Thank you!

After moving four times in four regions of the country the past ten years due to ever-changing music business, we have experienced a wide variety of real estate experiences.
Working with Linda made our transition to San Diego one of the easiest moves we have made. Her intuitive ability to find the right area and house in a short period of time helped us settle in without the usual extended apartment stay.
The transaction went smoothly with no delays. Her referrals have saved us time, money and anxious moments. Thank you Linda.

We have bought and sold approximately fifteen properties over fifty years and have worked a full range of realtors. Recently we wanted to purchase a home in La Costa Valley.
We asked a friend to recommend a realtor and she unhesitatingly suggested Linda Moore. We certainly have not been disappointed! Linda's professionalism, thoroughness with full attention to every detail and relaxed cheerful attitude during what can be for some a tense time, made our transaction smooth, stress free and pleasant.
Linda is a person who obviously loves what she does and enthusiastically gives her clients the best service available. Whether it is late at night or early in the morning she is at the ready to address any detail. For us she even remembered something which was to be included in the purchase which we had forgotten. I also recall that Linda suggested a lower offer than we planning to make and it was accepted.
In addition, it was through Linda that we put in touch with an outstanding "fixit" man who handled many job which required attention before we moved in.
We are extremely grateful for all the help she gave us!
Ted & Sandy Goetz (Buyer)
"I have nothing but praise for Linda Moore and feel that she went out of her way to show us comps in Carlsbad + Encinitas. We wanted to list the house at a bit higher price and Linda supported our decision (even though she estimated that we would sell the house at almost the exact price we sold it for!). Linda is very professional, very responsive, always available and always helpful.
We were so fortunate to sell our home in such a crazy down market and I am not sure we would have been this successful without Linda as out agent."
Lucy Cunningham (Seller)
"Linda Moore aggressively developed a strategy to sell our house. Her recommendations were sound and effective. Her professional behavior with the other real estate agent and bank representatives contributed to the rapid sale of our house and closing of the deal'

Just a note of thanks for all the help in selling our home.
We know this was not a easy 'sell' after we lost the first set of buyers...but you did an excellent job guiding us until we had it sold. I know this was not easy for you when we were faced with a rapid decline in property values and it's negative impact on our goals.
You did an excellent job of showing us we could still sell and complete our objectives with a smaller profit margin. We are sure glad we followed your advise because we couldn't be happier here in North Carolina.

"Linda Moore is an experienced Professional. I interviewed several agents familiar w/my neighborhood & Linda's portfolio & presentation far outstripped that of her competitors.... and I was gratified to find out that it has all time! She has a very even personality & keeps her cool in every circumstance..."
Alison Withe (Seller)
"Last year a friend recommended Linda Moore providing enthusiastic reviews about her unending patience with assisting them in finding a home to their specifications. Based on their recommendation, I contacted Ms. Moore to act as my agent in in selling a property in Oceanside. ... I am thankful for all her efforts"
Vanora St. Clair (Seller)
"Moving from Belgium to California and searching for a home while still abroad did not make us easy clients for Linda Moore. But Linda took our situation in stride, often answering our e-mails at 7 AM in San Diego so that we would have the information we needed before the end of our day in Europe. Linda's commitment to her job is amazing. She is incredibly proactive in following up every step of the way with the listing agents on each of the properties we made offers on, many times late in the day, even during holiday periods. Linda is also skilled negotiator. On the home we ultimately bought, she was able to save what looked like a failing deal by stepping in at the right moment and delivering a powerful argument that turned the negotiations in our favor. We wholeheartedly recommend the Linda to potential home buyers who want a Realtor they can trust and who is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for her clients."
Sebastien and Carolyn Collignon (Buyer)
"We contracted with Linda due to her high sales volume, in order to expedite the sale of our home. After receiving four offers after 40-some odd days on the market, we accepted an almost full price offer. Throughout the process of selling our home, Linda was a consummate professional who quickly resolved most issues in a timely manner.
We were so pleased with Linda's service that we used her to help us find our new home and she again proved invaluable with advice and access to related services, such as lenders, movers, repair people, etc.
We would, and recently have, recommended Linda as a realtor, especially in this challenging market."
When we began the search for a new home, Linda could understand our perspective clearly and kept focused on the type of home we needed.We value her expertise, sensitivity, intelligence and insight. We would recommend her enthusiastically and intend to engage her in the future real estate transactions
Bob and Maura Harvey (Seller)
I have been working with Linda Moore for the past 14 yrs. Linda is the epitome of what a Real Estate Agent should model their business too. Linda stays up on the current market trends and technology and strives to make sure all her clients needs are met before, during and after the transaction. Linda is an asset to the Coldwell Banker Company.
"Linda was our Realtor when we were buying a house during the sellers' market of the late '90s, and I can't say enough good things about how impressed we were with her. She listened to what we wanted, showed us lots of appropriate homes and was flexible with our need to take care of our infant who came along on our house-hunting. When we heard about a house we wanted to see that wasn't even on the market officially yet but was being bid on by another couple, she arranged a showing for us as well and helped us put together an offer (with no available comps!) and gave us advice on how to make it the most attractive. It turns out both offers were for the same amount of money, but ours was accepted because of the other factors Linda included. We have been in the home for over 10 years now and love it and our neighborhood. I would highly recommend Linda as a Realtor - she knows her stuff."
Louise Julig (Buyer)
"Linda Moore is the most confident Realtor I’ve ever met. When she first came to see my mother’s house, which was in dire need of “deferred maintenance” and full of 50 years worth of junk, she said without hesitation, “I can sell this, no problem.” She quickly came up with a plan of attack, which included her team of handyman, plumber, painter, stager and gardener. She assured us that investing money in getting the house ready for the market would more than pay for itself in the purchase price.
After several weeks of getting rid of the piles of junk, sprucing up, and staging, it was ready to show. Her professional photographer took pictures that showed it off to best advantage and it was all but unrecognizable to me, my brother and my sister, who had all grown up in this house. When my husband and I sold our last house back in 2001, with a different Realtor, it took six months to sell. Not this time.
With Linda’s experience and comprehensive marketing plan we sold the house in six days and for top dollar, including $1000 more than the asking price. Escrow went without a hitch and closed in 30 days. Now I know why Linda Moore is the most confident Realtor I’ve ever met."
Steve & Miyoko (seller)
"I write regarding the great job that Linda Moore did regarding the purchase my wife Lena and I made of a single family home... I write to express our appreciation for and satisfaction with the services provided by Linda Moore. I intend to work with Linda Moore regarding our future investments in Encinitas California, and I will also recommend Linda Moore to anyone we know who is interested in investing in property in Encinitas, California"
Kenneth Gleria (Buyer and Seller)
"Linda has been our family real estate agent for over a decade. When the time came for me as a young adult to buy my first home, I knew I could count on Linda to help me find exactly what I wanted. In this current rough and tumble market of foreclosures and short sales, Linda had the diligence and patience to spend as much time as I needed finding what was right for me.
Once I found my dream home, Linda went the extra mile to make sure the seller knew who we were, and that this house was meant for me. I am confident I would not be in such a beautiful, perfect home had it not been for Linda and her team.
Thanks so much for everything."
Chris Baldwin (buyer)
"Linda Moore provided beyond adequate Realtor services for me and made my first home purchase extremely easy. She is very nice to communicate with very persistent in finding the absolute best home fit for the buyer. I will definitely recommend her for any home transaction in the future. I would also like to extend my greatest thank you to her and your company for helping me find an excellent home"
Mike McCandlish (Buyer)
"Linda Moore did a great job marketing our home. She was always available and extremely knowledgeable about the market in our area. Linda also stayed on top of any issues that arose during the time our house was on the market and during the closing. We recommend Linda to anyone buying or selling a home in Encinitas"
Ken / Diane Rogoff (Seller)
"Linda did a superior job in finding us our first home! It was a long and difficult road dealing with several short sales, but Linda remained optimistic and driven to the end. She was always available and always promptly returned our emails or phone calls. She treated us like her most valued, Important clients at all times. She made time to show us any home, any day, and time we needed. We were recommending her to our friends after working with her for 2 days! We are thrilled with our new home and positive we never would have gotten here without her expertise and drive. Thank you Linda!"
Nathan & Elisabeth D. (Buyer)
"She presented the property without inflated "commercial talks" focusing on details in an objective manner with sufficient supporting documents and evidences. She was extremely quick and efficient in processing necessary paper work and liaising with the seller. We appreciated her professional integrity very much, which led us to trust in her."
Toshiaki & Sailaja Harada (Buyer)
"I feel your knowledge and experience of both the sale and close process and perhaps even more important, buyer/seller psychology, saved the sale. I know I was not at my most calm during that period and I thank you for your patience. As I was an inexperienced owner/seller, you had to not only guide me through the weeks of negotiations but keep me focused and feeling confident that we would succeed. You did a
Gordon Jones (Buyer/Seller)
“Linda is a very friendly and knowledgeable real estate agent and has served our neighborhood for many years. When we chose to sell she advised us and managed all the basic needs in dressing up the house (cleanup, painting, new carpet, moldings, and ceiling popcorn removal). She attended to it all such that we never had to return from our new home in New Mexico. The sale was quick (two weeks, I think, to find a qualified buyer) and easy in a time of shrinking sales.”
Ronald and Jacquelyn Lynn (Seller)
“David and I recently bought our first house. As first time buyers the process can be a little daunting and even overwhelming. We are so thankful to have had Linda Moore as our Realtor. She has an excellent reputation in the area and for good reason. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and worked very hard to make sure everything we requested was met.”
David and Natalie Emmons (Buyer)
“We really appreciate your diligence, professionalism, creative thinking, and persistence in representing us in the purchase of our home. Little did we realize when we hired you that we would need every ounce of your knowledge and perseverance to get through this transaction.”
Leslie Cohen and Mark Duerst (Buyer/Seller)
“Wow! Three offers were made for our house after the first open house. We went into escrow with two back-up offers and closed in 30 days. We were satisfied with the selling price, which we thought, all along, would be the price that the house would sell for and all this, in the most difficult real estate market in decades. Through the whole process, Linda made herself available 24/7. She was very
responsive. I would send her an email at 10p.m. Sunday night, expecting a reply on Monday, but no more than five minutes later, there was a response from her.”
John and Wendy Greene (Seller)
“Dear Jeff Hayes, Branch Manager, there are not enough words to express my deepest gratitude in having Linda Moore market and sell my house. Her accurate knowledge of real estate, professionalism, and sincere and caring concern for her clients make her the “Nordstrom’s” in every way. You’re the tops as a problem solver, communicator, anxiety stabilizer, and know every facet of the real estate business giving your clients great comfort and security!”
Mavis Bonus (Seller)
“We really enjoyed working with Linda Moore. She is extremely professional, responsive and communicative. We had just visited our home as the market had begun to change and Linda was there every step of the way making sure we were aware of current market conditions and providing solid guidance.”
Kye and Lori Rice (Seller)
“I do not recall one phone conversation, meeting, message, or note which was not positive and firm in her belief that a buyer would arrive to provide a reasonable price for the property. She constantly stayed in touch; not allowing more than two days to pass without hearing from us, or visiting to pickup cards. We have sold two other houses, and we are familiar with agents and the process involved. But, Linda went beyond what we had previously experienced.”
Dan Thompson (Seller)
“Linda has proved to be an outstanding representative of our property, resulting in the sale of our home at a price which was commensurate with our expectations. She was able to negotiate the immense traffic of interested parties to our home with extreme skill and grace; we were extremely comfortable with her abilities to adequate represent out concerns, both in terms of financial sense and general integrity.”
Thomas & Dorothy Gingeras (Seller/Buyer)
“When I think of Linda I think of patience. I am not sure how many years that my husband and I went looking for houses with Linda. It has to be at least 5 years until we finally closed escrow on this home. What also stands in my mind is Linda’s commitment to her clients, going to bat for them when someone might have treated them unfairly. Finally, after years of searching, we closed escrow on a home that had everything we were looking for.”
Andy & Rhonda Oesterle (Buyer)
"Linda Moore is an exceptional, professional Realtor. If you are thinking of selling your own home and you are not a full time Realtor, I suggest you think twice. Things have changed. The buyers and rules are different. One Mistake and the sale could be invalid, or worse it could be illegal. Linda is serious about her profession and representing your best interest. She certainly earned my trust and respect. "
Alan Cone (Seller) Part 1
"You were professional in every sense of word. Our house sold immediately, over the asking price, to a well qualified buyer, and closed with no problems. No surprises, fuss, no muss. I would never have described selling a house as a great experience-but you indeed made it that way. We always felt completely confident in your judgment and abilities. You never let us down. "
John and Mary Sisti (Seller)
“This letter is simply to confirm what you no doubt already know very well: that Linda Moore is an outstanding representative of your firm and an exceptional agent in every respect. Judging by her attention to the big picture as well as the smallest details, you would have thought we were selling a multi-million dollar mansion instead of the smallest model in the first subdivision in the community.”
Ann Sanson (Sellers)
“As a Microsoft employee, I was recently transferred by my company to Seattle, Washington and was referred to Linda Moore with Coldwell Banker. Linda is a certified Relocation Specialist. During the majority of the marketing and escrow period related to the sale of my home, I was out of town. Linda diligently handled every detail each step of the way and kept me continuously informed throughout the process. Linda did an excellent job of marketing my home and protecting my interests.”
Jeffrey Gattis (Seller)
"If anyone thinks that all Realtors are the same, please allow us to speak with them personally. Your attention to detail, compassion, and 120% effort does not exist anywhere that we have seen in your industry. You are the high standard your colleagues should aspire to."
Jerry & Colleen Smith (Seller)
"After we tried for two months to sell it ourselves in a 'hot market' that anything would sell, we soon learned that it wasn't that easy, we got referred to you by a neighbor who said you were the 'miracle worker' having sold their home quickly and at asking price. The rest is history - you sold our house in 3 weeks for asking price and transacted clean as a whistle, no problems or hassles."
Ron & Karen Miely (Sellers)
“First and foremost, Linda never loses sight of the goal and she doesn’t ever drop the ball. We always felt confident that Linda was on top of every essential matter and of every useful detail from start to finish. Linda works hard and she works smart. Linda’s demeanor is always professional, congenial and Linda makes useful suggestions. In addition, Linda knows Encinitas well, she is well organized, and she
conveys a thorough understanding of the local real estate market.”
Zoe and Richard Blaylock (Seller)
“I would like to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks to you for the outstanding manner in which you handled the sale of my home this past May. I could not have imagined or asked for an easier, more hassle-free process and I was very pleased with both the sales price and the multiple offers. I know that it was your expertise and guidance that ensured I got the maximum sales price and the minimum number of buyer contingencies and request.”
Michelle Walker (Seller)
“Thanks much for your expert advice and understanding while helping us sell our home this past November. As you know, we had a three month old baby, and had a much restricted showing schedule. Also, four houses on our block were on sale at the same time and we needed your advice to help us price appropriately and maximize our value. Suffice it to say, we were VERY pleased when the house sold in four days at the highest range of our pricing.”
John and Teresa Hogenesch (Seller)
“Linda Moore is an exceptional, professional realtor. If you are thinking of selling your own home and you are not a full time realtor, I suggest you think twice. Things have changed. The buyers and rules are different. One mistake and the sale could be invalid, or worse it could be illegal. Linda is serious about her professional and representing your best interest. She certainly earned my trust and respect. Linda took a “difficult” property (due to road noise) that been on the market for 10 months and sold it for full list price in only 6 weeks.”
Alan Cone (Seller)
"Linda Moore is an extremely competent and professional Realtor. Linda, as expected, has a very extensive knowledge of the neighborhood and surrounding markets and had all the information we needed to make very informed decisions in selling smartly. Linda brought an extremely solid team of people with her; including but not limited to, home staging, landscaper, inspector and other contacts that assisted us tremendously. What I really like about Linda was her responsiveness. We had our house under contract at a very food price in just a few short days because of the fact that we spent time (2+ months) and effort upfront with her team preparing and getting the house ready for sale. The result was better than we had hoped for. The negotiation and advice was very straightforward and I am very comfortable with how everything transpired. The follow up of escrow through the closing was painless, thanks to Linda and her team."
Bill & Elise Bindseil (Seller)
"Coldwell Banker is chock full of real estate agents. I know I've gone through several of them and other from various agencies until I happened upon Linda at an open house. I had already lost 2 houses, one 2 weeks before escrow in Encinitas - so I was extremely skeptical. Linda was there, but more importantly she was really there - she knew every property in Encinitas and she would preview any one you would be interested in... She didn't overload you with properties, but I didn't feel I was missing anything. I trusted her all the way. So much so that when she referred me to a really good agent in University City, I still felt I needed her representation. She did just that and everything went without a hitch. CA alone is a different RE mkt w/ multiple offers, and how getting loans, short sales, etc that you need a person like Linda. She has the help she needs plus works 24/7 and she will connect you with any resource you
need (that by the way will be the best in the industry). Plus I know if I call Linda today she will be
Lisa Brezina & Mike Burg
"It is my pleasure to write this letter of endorsement on behalf of Linda Moore, Real Estate agent for Coldwell Banker. Linda has been absolutely wonderful to work with – both during the sale of our first home and the purchase of our second. We were extremely satisfied.
During our home sale, I feel that Linda was the best agent for the job. I feel that there is a strong possibility that other agents would not have been able to close the sale, but Linda guided the novice selling agent through the process with ease. We had to sell at a price that was representative of the market, but, probably like all sellers, was much lower than we expected. Linda was very upfront with us about this and her estimate about five months prior to sale was pretty spot on.
Linda’s knowledge of the broader areas we were looking to buy helped us narrow down to specific neighborhoods to concentrate our efforts on during the search for a new home to purchase. Linda showed us what I can only imagine was well over the average number of homes during our long search for a home to purchase. Each time we viewed homes, Linda was upbeat and professional; happy to show us more homes with our two young kids (3 and 1) in tow. We frequently brought our two young children with us to view homes. Linda was always very patient and while looking at new home construction even stayed in the car and read them stories while Anne walked through the model homes.
Linda has an excellent balance of kindness and professionalism when dealing not only with us, but also other agents and home owners. The home that we did end up purchasing, we never would have gotten without her interaction with home owners and selling agent. The home we are in was taken off the market with multiple offers within a day and when counteroffers began, her guidance and knowledge landed us in the house we now call “home”. She advised us to submit a letter to the selling agent and, at the final walk-through the former owner revealed to Anne that the letter brought tears to his wife’s eyes and ultimately closed the deal.
Overall, we were very happy with Linda and would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
Jesse and Anne Kolb (seller)
I have been thinking about you. My friend Dan in Utah, a professional sales executive, has been trying to sell his mother's home through a "sell it yourself" program. He has been at it unsuccessfully for over 11 months. Remember when I tried to sell my mother's home on Elmbranch Drive. I tried the same thing and failed miserably. The people coming to my open houses were either not qualified or bottom feeders.
As my long time friend, you offered good advice and encouragement, but my frustration level just grew as I just kept paying the mortgage payments, utilities and taxes with no sales success. Finally when I asked you to sell my mother's home you went right to work with a plan based on your experience in selling so many homes in our neighborhood... and you sold my mother's home and closed escrow in 47 days... to a cash buyer who paid more than the listing price... because you attracted several qualified buyers who bid more than the list price to get the home.
Later, when I sold my home on Witham Road, you patiently sought the right buyer who again paid more than the list price. I understand first hand how you "sell the neighborhood" by building the value of our neighborhood one home sale at a time. Over the years you benefited so many of our neighbors selling their greatest asset... and we all still consider you a wonderful friend.
I told Dan about you. My friend asked if you would come to Ogden. I told him you are "ours", but he could still look for the same high quality character and professional skills in a local Utah realtor to get the job done correctly. He agreed. I hope Dan is as fortunate as all of us have been over the years with you.
I know that these are challenging times for you and America, but the best rise to the occasion and you are the best. Judy and I send you and your fine family our best wishes for continued health, happiness and prosperity.
