What Clients Say About Linda Lederer Bernstein
Linda, thanks so much— you and your team certainly exceeded all our expectations representing our home in Rancho Valencia. Your constant communications and follow-through on every detail were greatly appreciated. Nothing was “too small” for you to handle! Great marketing strategies, photography and advertising. Linda’s personal knowledge of Rancho Valencia (owners & visitors) made a big difference. Also, your team was so “hands on” with us being mostly out of town. Linda is so friendly, knowledgable and positive--everyone likes her. Compass & Linda is a FABULOUS choice.
My husband met Linda at an open house. He was impressed with her informative, intelligent and personal style. She knows the Rancho Santa Fe California market super well. We were considering a second home and she began showing us options in the neighborhood we had determined we liked best. We put a house under contract that had just come on the market. There were differences in the square footage advertised by the seller and the actual square footage along with structural and termite challenges with the property. Linda negotiated the repair work and price reduction requests in a fair and upfront way. She always seemed more concerned with our ultimate happiness than her commission. We live in Texas so we did a lot of this long distance. Ultimately we dropped the contract. Just too many things to fix for the price. Shortly after that Linda came to us with a hip pocket that we loved and ended up purchasing. Sometimes things work out. I would recommend Linda to anyone. Thank you, Linda!
I am writing on behalf of Linda Lederer-Bernstein of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, who recently sold our home in Carmel Valley and sold us our new house in the Whispering Palms neighborhood of Rancho Santa Fe.
Over the past 20 years, my wife and I have worked with many different agents. Linda is no doubt the best real estate agent we have ever had. From the beginning, she provided a comprehensive assessment of recent sales in our neighborhood and was extremely helpful in
In parallel to selling our house in Carmel Valley, Linda also sold us a home in Rancho Santa Fe. Again, her meticulous attention to detail and her experience in real estate made this a very smooth process. In fact, we were able to move into our new home, which had been occupied, on the same day that we left Carmel Valley. This was not
The seamless nature of this process, which can often be very difficult, was no accident. First and foremost Linda is clearly an expert in real estate transaction, with years of experience. In addition, she is an excellent communicator, is very proactive in addressing any issues, is extremely organized and punctual, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone needing real estate services. Our experience both in selling and buying a new home was unsurpassed.

Having purchased and sold a few homes, we can say that Linda Lederer-Bernstein is by far the best real estate professional that we have worked with.

Rosemary & Wally Weidman, 17448 Luna De Miel, Rancho Santa Fe
Linda was the perfect agent for us and we picked her off of the internet! Looking for a home in Del Mar, while living on the east cost, could have been enormously stressful. It wasn’t. Linda made sure that she understood what we were looking for by getting to know what we liked and needed
Julie Saffir, 4588 Vista De La Patria, Del Mar
I am writing this commendation for Linda Lederer-Bernstein. When George Weida decided to sell his house on 7329 La Soldadera, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067, we contacted Linda for her services. From that day on, she devoted 24/7 towards our needs and everything went quite quickly. She not only kept us advised on all of the procedures that had to be taken care of on a timely basis, but she was always there for us when we had questions or concerns. She also was in contact with the financial institution on our behalf to make sure that everything was going smoothly. Due to her knowledge of the market and constant effort on our behalf, the house sold in a short period of time (approximately 7-8 weeks) from the time of our initial contact with her. During the process of selling the Rancho Santa Fe home, she searched for a new home for us and found three possibilities in the area that she knew we were very interested in. She was highly instrumental in the buying procedure of our present home in our area of choice. Here

This is a letter of commendation for Linda Lederer-Bernstein and Jenniffer Taylor. Linda and Jenniffer just completed a short sale for me in Vista, CA. That alone would be miraculous in today’s economic climate. However, they were able to do so with a very compact timeline, and with minimal disruption to
The house sold, literally, after the first showing. The realtors were able to sift through potential buyers to show the home only to those they believed were earnest buyers. This was very important to me since my husband was near death at the time and that circumstance needed to be considered in the showings.
This could only have been accomplished because both Linda and Jenniffer are very knowledgeable about the short sale process, a process that, at best, is confusing and illogical. They both made the process understandable, and their professionalism as seasoned realtors made the process move along smoothly, with very few bumps. I believe their ability to communicate, clearly, every step of the process was a great asset in moving toward completion so swiftly.
I am most grateful for their help and compassion in a time when both

Linda and Jenniffer have been terrific throughout the entire process of selling our home. They have been with me every step of the way, guiding me through the nuances of the process from listing to offer to negotiations and acceptance.

– Ron and Kate, Siete Leguas, Rancho Santa Fe January 2011
Linda was the Realtor who handled our house sale in 2009 and we would both highly recommend her.
Her style is to give a personal service, by this we mean she takes an active interest in everything to do with the transaction. This includes showing the home personally and conscientiously and energetically following up with other agents, lenders, appraisers. She is also very straightforward, honest and timely in her communications. We found Linda to be very knowledgeable and smart, enabling us to be creative in our negotiations and dealings.

Karl and I would like to thank you for selling us our beautiful house on Noche Tapaptia. You were very professional in every aspect and buying our house couldn’t have been easier. You were always there for us whenever we needed you, either by phone or in person. We were especially pleased in the way that you worked with the builder made the entire real estate transaction come together so smoothly. We have bought several properties throughout the years and we can say that by far, you have been the easiest and most pleasant to work with always maintaining your professional and friendly ways from the offer through the closing of escrow. We would never hesitate to call you again if we ever needed real estate
Again, our many thanks for being the fine agent that you are.

Our experience with Linda Lederer-Bernstein was superb! We have been working with Linda for the past 18 months involving our property in Rancho Santa Fe. Linda’s integrity, work ethic, industry knowledge and extensive professional experience
A huge thank you to Linda for all of her time & great effort selling my modernized & charming home in Olde Del Mar. I was very impressed, she was professional in every aspect and brought a personal & human element throughout the transaction. I appreciated her stopping by to hand deliver
documents and visiting with me. She was knowledgeable & savvy with her pricing of Del Mar and kept me informed of the market trends. Her marketing
materials were phenomenal- the photography was outstanding and the ads she put out were fresh every few weeks. Her ads reached markets out of state- and that’s where we found our buyer! She really made our property stand out from the rest. Linda was communicative & very creative with her marketing & advertising campaigns and social media presence. She truly cared about our interest in selling our home in a timely manner and at the best possible price!

I was referred to Linda by a colleague and dear friend who hired her to sell their home in Rancho Santa Fe. I currently live in Texas and wanted
reassurance of hiring an agent with experience and who offered a hands on approach. I was dealt the task of selling my parents house in Rancho Santa
Fe, which was vacant and in need of a remodel/updating before putting it on the market for sale. Linda with her team of experts handled every aspect to complete the remodel, including overseeing various contractors, all necessary inspections, and home staging. Linda was diligent in her
communications to keep me informed every step of the way. Her recommendations and approach in selling my parents home was incredibly
valuable and financially rewarding. I highly recommend Linda, I was truly impressed by her concierge service, knowledge of current market trends, and
her creativity with her various marketing & advertising campaigns. My parents home sold quicker and for more money than we originally expected!
- A. Hamerman
Linda and her team know the Rancho Santa Fe area best! They were so helpful and professional and handled every detail with expertise. Linda was easy to work, good with communication and very diligent. I would recommend her to my family, friends and colleagues.
- Jean J.
Linda was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. Linda has great expertise and I have known about her for over 12 years. During the sale
cycle, she was always responsive, proactive and never left any questions unanswered. Always took actions promptly. Her marketing campaign,
advertising, home staging and open houses were very impressive. I would highly recommend her over any brokers in San Diego area. She is very
experienced and knows the area very well. You will receive the best service any agent can provide. I know from experience as we were able to sell our
home in best possible way using Linda . She deserves the highest praise. I will definitely be referring my family
- H. Ahmadi
Our family was planning a complicated relocation from San Francisco to San Diego, and we needed the smartest, most patient, and well connected agent
in the area. Luckily, we found Linda, who was all that and more. Our family had several needs and requirements, including finding the right house for
our growing family, a great neighborhood and school district for our kids, and a timeline that allowed us to sell our house in San Francisco and move
into our new home without a hitch. It was amazing to watch Linda and her team work their magic with us and line up perfect visits to the area, a
first-rate set of showings each time, and provide the best advice as we narrowed our selection. Like all complicated moves, you hit bumps along the
way, but far from throwing Linda off balance she not only took everything in stride but provided the right reassurances at each step and carefully
walked us through the process. There was not a single email or phone call from start to finish that Linda did not answer immediately. Whenever we
needed her or just wanted to bounce ideas off her, Linda was on the phone to chat and was focused, patient, and understanding. As we moved toward the closing, Linda was by our side at every step and showed up at the house to ensure everything moved as smoothly as possible. Even after we took possession of the house, Linda was still in touch with us to be sure all was good, that we had names and contacts to maintain the house property, and that all our questions were answered. I cannot imagine going through this experience without Linda by our side. Simply put, there's not a better informed, smarter, or better prepared agent in the area. If you want the best, Linda is the clear choice!
