Was really lucky to find Mike for this transaction. We went into the deal not knowing his background, Mike made us feel comfortable right away with his professionalism and knowledge; Mike did outstanding at negotiating our contract almost four times; he had our best interest at heart. He made sure our requierements were met and our concerns covered. Mike's response time was within minutes of our inquiry which was highly impressive. He put us in touch with First Savings mortgage who was able to provide a bigger and better loan package than USAA was. I would like to recommend this entire team to anyone who's looking to buy a home in the Northern Virginia area, especially Veterans! Thank you, Mike for going above and beyond! We will be forever greateful for helping us find our new home. Less ... More

We recently purchased our very first home with the help of Greg lydell's select team, We had the pleasure of working with Mike Howard, who we came across with thanks to the wonderful reviews left on zillow and other websites. Mike was very easy to talk to and never made us feel as though we were asking too much, he walked us through every step with knowledge and always looking out for our best interest; Mike also referred us to our mortgage lenders at First Savings, where Jerome Jones got us a incredible rate and financing! overall our first time home buying experience was a lot easier than we could have hope for thanks to Mike and Jerome. I will refer this team to all my friends and family!! Less ... More

Ed Torres was FANTASTIC! He works well with first time home buyers. He was very knowledgeable with the Northern VA area. Before we started working with Ed, he was on vacation and took the time to email us to set up the initial meeting the day after he returned. Ed was easily accessed through email, phone, and text any hour of the day. He made us feel like we were his most important clients! He worked FOR us and always had our best interests in mind! Ed was able to get most of our closing costs paid for by the sellers and got us the BEST deal on our new home! It was a pleasure working with Ed and we would DEFINITELY recommend him to family and friends and to anyone else who is looking for a GREAT agent!! Less ... More

The experience I had working with Pinyo was remarkable. truly professional and knowledgeable in every aspect of my home buying process. Pinyo fought for me throughout, helping me deal with a difficult seller. When home repairs were not up to par he stepped in and pushed for proper repairs. He got after the seller to provide us with the HOA report and other documents needed to complete the sale. He stepped in with the lender as well when the process slowed down. He provided outstanding service to me looking out for my best interest every step of the way. He turned what could have been the worst buying experience in my life into a great experience from my direct dealings with him. The times I didn't take his advice on a few things I regretted it if not immediately, shortly thereafter. Thanks Pinyo for your time and effort. I would recommend Pinyo any day of the week. simply amazing! v/r Henry Less ... More

I found this agency just by chance as I was surfing the internet looking for agents to help me do a short sale on my home. There were so many positive reviews it did not take me long to make up my mind. The thing that stuck out the most, is most of the reviews mentioned how quick the process was. My house pretty much went off the market less than two weeks after it was listed. The team handled all of the paperwork so all I had to do after gathering the necessary documents was sign! My coworkers, some of whom have had their houses on the market for almost a year, were so impressed and could not believe that it took less than 5 months to sell and close on my home. The peace of mind I have right now is priceless. Not only do I recommend this team but I will use them again in the future. Less ... More

The Select Realty Team (specifically Ian and Beth) is fantastic! Our property had been on the market for 5 months with another local agent before we contacted Ian. Ian immediately spotted deficiencies in our sales and marketing strategy and gave us simple solutions to correct them. Our property had a solid offer within a week of listing with Ian and we recently closed on the property. We only wish we had gone with the Select Team sooner!

Mike Howard was my agent from Select Realty and I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable professionalism the Alexandria area. He found us the perfect home to suit our needs and handled the entire transaction while I was 3000 miles away. He continues to assist even post-transaction to make our transition smooth.

Mr. Greg Lydell and his Select Realty Team are awesome and are the consummate professionals. I worked with Greg a few years back to purchase my first home in VA and he made the home buying experience a true joy. Greg was the epitome of an advocate and went above and beyond to ensure I received the very best deal. More important, Greg demonstrated that it was more important for me to find the right house that would truly be a home, and the numbers; meaning profit, was secondary. Greg understood then, and has continued to demonstrate that the most important thing is to have a satisfied customer. I recently wanted to sell my initial home after living in it for almost 8-9 years. The very first person to come to my mind was Greg and his Select Realty Team. This time around Greg referred me to one of his upcoming and superstar realtors, Mr. Paul Almeida. Paul was professional, thorough, well informed, and very responsive and attentive to my needs and quickly understood the desires of what I was seeking in a new home. While purchasing my new home, I had to leave the area to attend to matters pertaining to the loss of my mother. During this time Paul worked closely with me via e-mails and phone calls to place my initial home on the market, and to work with me to find the new home which met my needs. Paul and the Select Realty Team were superb. They staged my home perfectly and did an extraordinary job of marketing my home. Because of their efforts my initial home was on the market just under 2 weeks before I received an offer and the home was sold. With the same tenacity and professionalism, Paul and the Select Realty Team was able to find and secure me a gorgeous second home which far exceeded my expectations and met all of my needs. Before I was able to say yes to this new home, Paul was kind enough to go out of his way to personally video this new home and send the video to me while I was still away tending to family business. Because of his efforts and constant communications, I was able to quickly assess and make the deal on this new spacious home. Words cannot adequately express my satisfaction with Greg, Paul, and the Select Realty Team. The home buying experience with this team is a breeze, educational, and void of stress. They take care of everything for you and have the right contacts to ensure any need associated with the home buying process is taken care of quickly. If you are in the market to buy a home and you are not working with the Select Realty Team, then you are not doing yourself justice. I recommend Greg and the Select Realty Team with confidence.

Jason Swaney was my real estate agent from Select Realty. He was absolutely outstanding with listing my house, dealing with the sale of the house, and at the closing. He made some very good suggestions at the beginning of the sale of the house such as consolidating the two parcels of land and getting an appraisal done before I listed the house since it was a custom made home. He totally understood my emotional attachment to my home since my husband and I had built it and had been there for 31 years. Any time I called him or sent him an email or a text, he responded within just a few minutes. He knew exactly what needed to be done throughout the process and kept me informed and up to date on everything. He is very knowledgeable, personable, professional, responds in a timely manner, and communicated often to keep me informed as to what was happening throughout the entire process. Thanks to Jason, the transaction went very smoothly and quickly. Less ... More

Ed was an amazing realtor from start to finish. He went above and beyond his responsibilities and was available to help and answer our questions at all times. When we could not close on our home before I moved due to my job, he hired someone to mow our lawn out of his own pocket so my wife did not have to. He did a great job to help get our home ready to sell and even got our asking price within a few days. We really appreciate Ed's efforts and would recommend him to anyone.

I had the distinct pleasure of working directly with Greg Lydell when purchasing my first home. After a negative experience with an inferior realty company, Greg and "The Select Team" were exactly what I was looking for: professional, knowledgeable, helpful, available, expeditious, and most of all, proficient. I walked into Select Realty relatively late on a Friday evening & asked for help. Within 15 minutes after walking out, I recieved a call from Greg who was ready to show me a property the very next morning. He immediately set a standard of superior service which he maintained and even improved upon during the selection, offer, negotiation, and closing process.

Pinyo was an excellent realtor for a first time home buyer. He was very patient and knowledgeable, which was crucial for understanding the complicated process of purchasing a home in the US. Pinyo uses modern communication techniques, is always responsive and reachable by phone, text, and email. I particularly like his use of online signatures to sign documents. This made the paperwork intensive process much smoother in saving time required to save, print, sign, scan, and email signed documents.

The Select Realty Group was instrumental in helping my family purchase a home just in time for the holidays. Ian's exceptional knowledge of the area was a great help in making sure our first option was not our only one (but ended up being). I discovered areas within a few miles I never new of. Claudia referred us to Ian as she was representing the seller & in good faith, she wanted to make sure that the transaction was ethical/fair. They teamed up & provided a world of resources to make sure we had all the ground work in place to make an educated decision. The process was seamless & they both exemplified everything that we imagine a world class real estate group to be. Communication was very fluid & all the scheduling of the necessary services to ensure closing prior to the settlement deadline were executed flawlessly. I commend you both on demonstrating the utmost professionalism & teamwork. You have a very satisfied client in us. I highly recommend Claudia, Ian & the entire group at Select Realty.

I initially started the home-selling process as a For Sale By Owner, considering that I'm a pretty savvy market-watcher and understand the industry pretty well. Little did I fully-understand all the negotiation, representation, timeliness, and expertise it really takes to sell real estate. Ed and the Select Realty Team represented me with top-level service as a seller and buyer! Ed is extremely knowledgeable, professional, timely, and thoughtful of his buyer's and seller's needs. Ed's initial presentation was confidant, well-researched and forward-thinking; I thought it was a tall order to fill, however I now realize it was nothing in comparison to the execution that Ed and the Select Realty Team will deliver. Here's the big difference between choosing Select Realty, specifically Ed Torres and any other realtor....you can be a "prospective" buyer or "prospective" seller with any other realtor for many months/years or will BE a very satisfied buyer and/or seller with Select Realty in no time at all. They are CLOSERS, plain and simple!! I will not let any other friend or family member looking to buy or sell their home choose none other than Ed Torres because I can genuinely say that he will represent them fully and he'll be saying "Congratulations" before they know it. I"ll close with these ever-ringing four words that Ed always reassured me with "We'll Make it Happen!" Thank you, Ed! Words can never really fully express how much I appreciate your dedication and persistence in the sale and purchase of my dream home! Less ... More

Great move for me! Glad I found Greg here while searching. Looking for a home, searched for days, then inquired about one of the homes that interest me. Was contacted within 5 minutes by Ed... it took me off guard when my phone rang, He told me he was the team guy in this area. Honestly, I did not expect a response from an agent that quick. Anyway, very impressive. We met at the home, I did not like it. Ed told me there were 6 others similar. I asked when we could see them. Ed then pulled out a folder with the other 6 and said Do you have time now, or do you want to schedule another time? I had time, we looked at them. I did not like any of those either! Ed then worked with me for over a month. Finally found the home I loved! Thanks Ed! Less ... More

This team did a great job selling our townhouse. Greg and Anthony worked together to make it a successful sale. Even though the buyers had issues at the last minute, Greg and Anthony handled it perfectly to make it smooth. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Honestly we had an awful experience with the Lydell team. We worked with an associate from the team, Roberto. He was incredibly inexperienced. Whenever we had questions about any of the homes we were interested, Roberto could not answer anything for us. We spoke to Greg Lydell a couple of times and he was just rude and uncooperative. We were very much dissatisfied with the Lydell team and we will never go back to them again.
Response fromGreg Lydell's Select Team
Wow! Just a quick point from me prior to a formal response... This review cannot possibly be from the actual buyer, and I will state all the facts tomorrow, but in nutshell... Must be from someone else trying to disparage us, because one simple fact is this: I, Greg Lydell, and this Purchaser, were in constant contact for 120 days prior to purchase over 60 days ago. This Purchaser always said "Thank you Greg, I appreciate your calls, help and advice. Thank you for your professionalism". Never, ever once did this client say anything that indicated a problem. This is what makes me suspicious of this review. (additionally, we are suspicious because this client, at end of settlement, stated that they were going to refer anyone they knew to us) (again, very odd review) -Greg Lydell, Team Leader, Call or Text anytime, 703-863-0157, 7 days per week 9am to 9pm!

Our experience with Greg Lydell's Select Team was outstanding! From the very first walk through of our house, the team was available for us. They gave us advice on how to get the house ready to sell which included referrals of who could help us. They were always responsive when the negotiations began and always kept us in the loop. They were always available for questions and discussions. Being a military family, we have moved a lot, and this has been the best experience we have had. I would highly recommend the Greg Lydell Select Team without hesitation. Less ... More

This team really works well together and their drive and work ethic is again truly impressive. They really know their business and are driven. I cant say enough about how great my experience was.

Working with Pinyo was a great experience. His profesionalism and personalty was Exceptional. Pinyo is knowledgeable about the housing market in the area. It didn't take us to long find a home. Giving Pinyo a description of what we wanted in a home helped him line up homes for us to see. Once we found the home, the process from putting in an offer to negotiating (agressive but fair) all the way to the closing, was the smoothest transaction I have ever experienced.

Completely knowledgeable about each and every step of the process. Volunteered to take care of things I didn't expect an agent to do. As soon as Kevin stepped on board a stressful situation became smooth and streamlined. Kevin's skill set, customer service and dedication were exemplary. Highest possible recommendation.

When another property in the neighborhood came up Mike Howard was my first phone call and before I knew it I had a second property. What I liked about him is he listened to what I wanted/needed and he got it for me. He held my hand through the first one as I had no idea what I was doing and he even had recommendations for a loan officer, property manager and painter. I have 100% confidence in him.

We contacted Greg Lydell's team to ask for a realtor who can help us buy a house in King George/Fredericksburg VA area. Realtor Mike Howard responded to us, and he's the best realtor we have had, or seen, or heard. He's extremely responsive to our questions, gave us detailed instructions and explanation, went above and beyond to even anticipate and address our needs before they came up. He really made us feel taken care of, and very comfortable in every step. This is especially important since we had to do everything remotely. We only had 2 days to spend in the area looking for houses, and Mike guided us through the offering, negotiating, inspecting,... processes remotely. He also recommended a Mortgage agent who did a fantastic job for us too. We highly recommend Mike Howard and will definitely ask him to be our realtor again in the future. Less ... More
