Lyle was great. He walked us through all the paper work and at any point that we had questions, he would give more detail so that we understood exactly what to expect. He's very knowledgable about the area and market. He was also patient. We saw many homes, but there were things we didn't like and so he kept looking for us and never got frustrated. He never pressured us to ourchase any hone. His number one concern was for us to be happy.

I would like to thank Lyle and Grace for their professional service. I had the opportunity to work with them in the recent sale of my parents house after they both passed away in a short period of time. I am not from the area, so I need Realtors that new the area and could take care of EVERYTHING that I needed to get done(and there was a lot!) Not only did they save me Thousands of dollars, they got us a whole lot more than we were expecting. Their knowledge and professionalism far exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for absolutely the BEST agents in san Diego I would recommend Lyle and Grace for all of your Real Estate needs. Less ... More

Lyle and Grace Caddell Broker/Owner Lyle May 7,2015 We want to thank you and your entire staff for your marvelous work in taking on and completing the sale of my mom?s house in Clairemont in such a short period of time. You were recommended to us as a person who can get the job done. After our first conversation we were convinced. Then, when we met to let you look over the house and see what you had to work with we were even more convinced. You explained the process, you gave us several sales options to be considered and you assured us that we were in control. If I recall correctly the viewing of the house was on a Wednesday. I told you I would let you know on Friday if you would be handling the sale. On Monday you notified me that you already had a number of telephone calls and a day later you said you had the first offer. Although it seemed to me to be a good offer you said to wait a little and let other buyers jump in. Others did and the amounts offered increased. To make a short story shorter, by week?s end we had a firm offer and were headed for escrow. The whole process only took about two weeks from beginning to end. We would gladly recommend Lyle and Grace Caddell to anyone wanting to sell a piece of property. We were kept in the loop continuously. If we had questions they were answered promptly in a way that made us feel comfortable. Never once did we have to wait on the line or call back because you were unavailable. Again, thank you and Grace for helping us through a trying period of our life. Ken and Lois Wigginton Less ... More

We have known Lyle for many years through his work with youth football, but we had never worked with him in buying and selling properties. We stopped by an open house hosted by Lyle for no other reason than we saw his sign and decided to say hello. We were not actively looking for a home. Slightly over one month later and we were homeowners! Lyle helped us buy a new home and sold our old one. He was fast, responsive, and really helped us in determining what to offer and what to ask for. His knowledge of the area, connections with service providers, and dedicated support staff made our transactions seem effortless. Easiest home buying process we have ever experienced. We are so happy in our new home and we have Lyle And Grace to thank for helping us get here. Highly recommend them. Less ... More

Our house presented some unique marketing challenges but Lyle told us exactly what we needed to do to to promote enough interest in the house for a sale. He knew the best and most cost-effective vendors for us to use on improvements. He uses a professional photographer to insure that home is displayed in its best light. I can't tell you how many people commented on the pictures when they came to view the house! His knowledge and expertise with the housing market in our area helped immensely in pricing it correctly. He was in contact with us almost on a daily basis and always had a positive outlook on the sale. The fact that he has his own title and escrow companies within the same building helped to facilitate the whole process. He also had many helpful suggestions about things like how to handle the proceeds after the sale. I believe that had it not been for Lyle's efforts, expertise and marketing skills our house would still be on the market! Less ... More

I would highly recommend Lyle and Grace. They came out to the house and helped me decide what to list it for, I felt it was a fair listing, and they didn't try to get me to lower the price, just so it would sell. My house was very unusual, but they were excited about the house and it showed. They did open houses and were very aggressive in trying to sell it. When my house went into escrow they were there every step of the way. Everything went according to plan. I would use them again.

Our experience with Lyle Caddell could not have been any better. He is knowledgeable, professional, and easy going, but very on point. He is aware of what it takes to sell a home of our size in this area. He is very dedicated to his clients, that is evident by the results he produces. We really appreciate everything that he and his staff did to make this a great experience for our family. We will definitely recommend him to our family and friends!

We worked with the team at Realty Executives on a rental unit we owned and needed to sell through the traditional short sale process. It was apparent after our first meeting with Lyle that we were in great hands. Through the process, we were particularly impressed with the team's negotiation skills with the lenders. We also liked the updates we received through the entire process. Random questions were immediately answered, which is comforting when going through a short sale. Overall, we highly recommend their services. Less ... More

Talk about service! My brother and I were recently put in the position of having to sell our parents' house.. Our neighbors, knowing Lyle and Grace from several very successful transactions of there own, both here in La Mesa and in Lake Havasu, recommended them. Good advice. We were having to work through powers of attorney, and even though it meant more legalities and paperwork, Lyle dove right in and provided us with the guidance and communications to easily get ready for the sale. Thanks to an awesome internet ad (interior and exterior extensively photographed), the house was sold in a matter of days after a crowd of potential buyers went through it. Lyle had presented us with a list of what he had determined to be the best deals and we went from there. After a seamless inclusion of the escrow service, we were done. Everybody was a winner. We got a better than hoped for price and the buyer, thanks to housing prices nowadays, has a great investment. I I would like to add my enthusiastic recommendation of Lyle and Grace. Can't go wrong with these guys. Richard Welch (richinlamesa@yahoo.com) Less ... More

We were extremely happy with Lyle Caddell's work to sell our home. He is tremendously hard working, and he was very focused on getting our home sold. He kept us informed at all times, and he was very much involved to get the sale closed. He knows more about the market in our area than any other realtor. We highly recommend Lyle Caddell and the firm of Lyle and Grace.

Lyle and Grace were amazing! Their expertise and knowledge about buying and selling a home was far beyond the abilities of anyone I have ever worked with. Their attention to detail and diligence made the entire process smooth and painless. All of the paperwork was handled efficiently and in a timely manner. They sold our home in less than a day and then navigated the very long short sale process in order for us to get into our "dream home." Because of the great relationships they cultivate with their clients they were able to provide service that was above and beyond our expectations. Less ... More

Lyle and Grace assisted us in selling our home and in the purchase of our new home. Their local knowledge regarding pricing and availability of homes was outstanding. Calls were returned immediately whenever we had a question. With their assistance, this was by far the easiest sale and purchase of a home that we have ever experienced. I would highly recommend them to family and friends.

Best realtor I ever worked with. From the beginning Lyle was working hard to find my wife and I a great house. We had very very very specific wants, and a 5 month old baby that we had to bring along. Lyle did a great job. Within weeks we found the house, and Lyle helped us negotiate a great price. You cannot find a better realtor in the area.

We had met Lyle at an open house in our area and spent quite alot of time with him that day. We learned that he certainly had a pulse on the area and were surprised that we had common friends. After spelling out exactly what we wanted in a house, Lyle showed us several properties, being patient with us along the way. When a potential seller called Realty Executives to come to Alpine and give his opinion on their house, Lyle knew that it was everything we wanted. After seeing it, we made an offer before the sellers signed the listing. The escrow was smooth, Lyle found us a rental tenant for our home, an insurance agent and a painter. Talk about full service! We called Lyle once again when we decided to sell our investment property. We listed in April and closed in June. On the selling side now, Lyle kept us informed all the way. He is our agent for life Less ... More

Lyle and Grace and the entire staff at Realty Executives are AWESOME!! They are passionate about their work and make their clients feel like the most important people in the world. We couldn't be happier with the job they did for us. UPDATE - We were so delighted with the entire process of buying our home working with Lyle and Grace that we knew we would use them when were ready to sell a small investment property. Lyle listed the home, held an open house, had multiple overbid offers and opened escrow all within 3 days. We couldn't be happier and we can't stress enough what a wonderful job they did. We highly recommend them whether you are buying or selling a home. Less ... More

Their knowledge of the area, potential buyers and business savy produced a wonderful outcome for our family with the sale of our home.

Lyle and Grace have put together a fantastic team of people that helped me buy a wonderful home. Lupe Padilla was my Loan Officer, she works in the Realty Executives office. Lupe processed my VA loan in two weeks. My loan was not easy to process, I had a previous divorce, forclosure, and bankruptcy. Lupe is pleasant to work with, professional, knowledgeable, experienced and she kept me informed the entire time. Once I had my VA loan approval letter I sat down with Lyle, we went over the details of what I was looking to purchase. 30 minutes into our meeting Lyle said, "I have a home that matches your liking, it will be going on the market in three days, if you like it you have a good chance of getting it". I walked through the home with Lyle, I liked it and I got it. Lyle was awesome to work with, he is positive, knowledgeable, experienced, always smiling, easy to get in touch with even on weekends. Lyle knows all the right people to help you get throught the home buying process in a quality manner. Such as Home inspector, Roofer, Structural Engineer, Structural Concrete. I needed all of these people for my purchase and all the people Lyle recommended were top notch. They made the whole thing go smooth. Listen folks If you read this and you are still not sure just drive through the Jamul area and see how many Lyle & Grace signs you can find (a whole lot). There is a reason for that and I just gave you a brief description of why. The Escrow company that Lyle and Grace use is awesome as well, they are located very close to Realty Executives. They will also keep you informed along the way. I will work with Lyle & Grace anytime !! Less ... More

To Whom It May Concern: Lyle and Grace Caddell were thorough, honest and productive in the process of listing and selling our home. Lyle had three offers in three days and sold it at the full price we were asking. His diligence and forthright action got us through a stressful and difficult time. The sale funded in 57 days from the date we listed the house. We have made a friend from this experience, and plan to utilize the professional team at Realty Executives in the future.

Let me start by saying that Lyle and Grace are amazing! After 2.5 years of trying to negotiate with our bank, we had no other option than to short-sell our home. We had the most difficult bank to deal with, by far. Lyle and Grace jumped to the challenge and were able to close the deal without any expense to us. We didn't have to do a thing. I would definitely recommend Lyle and Grace to anyone in our situation. We will be using them again the future.

Lyle Caddell was wonderful to work with. He is definitely the person to work with in the East County of San Diego. He was able to bring qualified buyers to our home and was able to find a buyer when other agents had failed to attract interested parties. Lyle did a very professional job of advertising our property and worked hard to sell our home in a very difficult market. We would highly recommend Lyle and Grace to East County buyers and sellers!!!

Well this has been our second experience with Lyle and Grace in the past 10 years. I would not go any other route. Ten years ago Grace helped us deal with an agent from hell. She held our hand every step of the way, in order for us to get out of the evil mess that agent had put us in. When it was time to purchase again, after seing firsthand what can happen out there, I didn't think twice. I went back to the only people that I trust. On this ocassion we were able to work with Lyle, and I have to say, he knew what we wanted and needed even before we did.Although we tried to jump at every single opportunity of a home purchase, he would talk us through the good and bad of the property. It didn't take too long before he found us the pefect home. We are now so happy and proud of our home, that we could definetly not have done it without him. He patiently looked and found exactly what we always wanted. We couldn't be happier. Honest, smart, straight, and trustworthy is what these people are. The best out there Less ... More

Anyone who lives in East County has to see all the SOLD signs around town by Lyle and Grace. Their success is nothing more than basic math.

Lyle and Grace are a fantastic team. They helped me purchase two homes, and sell two homes. When I think real estate I only think of Lyle and Grace. They know the area, the buyers and the market. It is important for me to trust my agent, I honestly believe that the team at Real Estate Executives wants to see all of their clients succeed and achieve the home of their dreams. I get the feeling that they are family and actually care about the clients. I am sure there are hundreds of clients at any given time at Realty Executives, but I was always felt like I was the most important client. My calls were returned immediately, both Lyle and Grace pass along their cell phone numbers and encourage questions and communications. My most recent transaction was very difficult emotionally and my home fell out of escrow just two days before closing, the buyer simply changed their mind. I am not sure who was more upset, but Lyle sat me down, and told me we would get through it. He held an open house and had the home back in escrow (successful this time) in less than two weeks. He let me know all of my options and stayed a tremendous source of support through many tears and fears. I simply would never consider using any other agents...ever. Less ... More
