Accrediated Luxury Home Specialist
Marketing a luxury home is completely different from your average home. You need an agent experienced in handling complicated transactions, the "art" of negotiating with the proper marketing plan.I have had extensive experience working in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the United States, Rancho Santa Fe. I started my career working at Fairbanks Ranch Realty; one of the first real estate offices established in "The Ranch". Additionally, I have represented several luxury buyers and sellers in my own neighborhood of Mission Hills. I offer "honest" assessments of property values. I give you facts backed up by data, not fluff and speculation. Interview at least 2 other agents and then interview me so I can show you how my marketing plan of action works to sell your luxury property in this tough market. I offer confidentiality, privacy and professional representation for buyers and sellers.

Testimonials for Todd Armstrong
"Todd Armstrong is a professional of the highest caliber. He is honest, reliable, knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator. He knows his business, and to top it all off, he is a very nice person. I first worked with Todd in 2007, when he helped me sell a house that was part of an estate of which I was executor. In that instance, he helped me find an excellent contractor and then provided invaluable assistance in preparing the house for sale. The house showed beautifully and sold quickly. In March of 2013, I again worked with Todd when he helped my sell my own house. He again did a superb job and my home sold within three days. A month later I bought a beautiful historic craftsman. Todd served as the buyer's agent in that transaction. I hold Todd in the highest regard as a businessman and as a human being. I consider myself fortunate to have had the benefit of his knowledge and expertise."
"What a great experience! Not only did Todd sell our house faster than anticipated, but it was an enjoyable process! In my opinion, Todd's best characteristic is his communication; I always knew that at any time I could call, text or email him and he would respond very quickly- if not immediately. He also did a great job using online tools to market our property and get the word out. Thanks Todd, we have already and will continue to refer you to our anyone buying or selling!
"Todd helped me purchase my first home in 2007 and he was awesome. So when it was time to purchase our second house this year, I never even thought about going with another agent. Buying the second home turned out to be more of a challenge. Todd was able to work through a difficult international transaction (seller lives overseas) with time zone/day of the week differences, tricky international escrow/title procedures, and a very demanding buyer (me). Todd stepped up held the entire transaction together, coordinated almost every aspect of the deal and expedited paperwork/people when it/they needed it. He always answered my call or text, gave me real time updates when there was an important issue we were tracking and just never let up until the deal was closed. NO OTHER AGENT could have done this deal better! He knows his stuff and works hard to make his clients happy. Thanks again Todd!"

"Todd Armstrong delivered, plain and simple.
When we interviewed Todd we gave him a very simple requirement: sell our place fast for a good price. The results: We had multiple offers within a week of listing our property, which were well within our selling range. In fact, our property sold so fast we were actually surprised and had to hurry in order to make arrangements for our next move; a great problem to have!
What was his magic? He helped put together a great plan, did a great job marketing, made the place look dynamite, and executed! He utilized the services of Keith Roberti, a professional designer, to stage our property and help seal the deal. Todd even personally loaned us some of his own contemporary furniture in order to add the exclamation point!
We were super impressed with Todd and would definitely recommend him to those in need of a first class real-estate agent. Kudos to Todd and his team!
"Buying a home from 3000 miles away could not have been easier. Todd Armstrong is a true professional and a dedicated service provider. During my adventure to find a home in 10 days he delivered quality service and was true to his word. Todd does what he says. My adventure started with three different Realtors all of whom seemed to not have the time to answer their phone much less realize that I needed personalized service due to my situation. His proven 56-step method allowed me to find, write a contract, and close on a property all with in the span of four weeks.
Todd treated me with respect unlike the other agents that only want to sell to a certain upper level clientele or price range. With Todd it did not matter if I had a seven-figure budget or a 200,000 dollar price range, he was more concerned with what I wanted and needed. Together we were able to work as a team and combined with respect and organizational skills, his ability to deliver, blew me out of the water.
He is for lack of better words, a "closer" who possesses the negotiation skills that make other agents look like a chump. I would not hesitate to refer any of my closet friends, colleagues or even my grandmother to Todd to purchase a home. As a first time homebuyer I could not have asked for a better experience.
"Two years ago, as the San Diego market started to soften, Todd helped me trade an investment property for a new and upscale townhouse in a much sought after location. In order to avoid tax consequences, he suggested a 1031 exchange and directed me to the appropriate company for such a transaction.Todd fielded my many phone calls without a whimper. I now have a real estate agent for life."
