YOUR NEIGHBORS - TALKING ABOUT TED

After doing a web search for realtors in the area, we came upon Ted’s site www.tedmiller2.com we liked the fact that he had joined his family’s real estate business and had been a full time real estate agent for over 20 years. We scheduled a time to sit down and talk with him. He was one of three agents we were interviewing. Being a tech savvy couple, it was important to us that our realtor have an online presence. Also, since we couldn’t always answer phone calls at work, it was also imperative that we have a realtor that could communicate with us via email and text.

From the moment we met Ted, we clicked. His easy going personality, his ability to listen to what is important to you and then help you weigh the pros and cons was a real asset both in selling and buying. We decided to sign with Ted the night before he was due to go on a week’s vacation. Despite getting ready to leave town, he made the time to get the paperwork done, put a sign in our yard and have our house listed on all the real estate websites. A week later Ted returned and our home was sold.

On the buying side, things were far more difficult. We looked at over twenty houses and Ted was very patient as we tried to decide what would and would not work for us in our new home that we planned to live in for the next twenty-five years. We had wanted to purchase four homes but had the worst luck (everything from owners deciding to pull their homes after negotiating a price with us to sink holes). It was extremely disheartening. But through it all, Ted kept a positive attitude even when we were less than enthusiastic about ever finding a home. He said to us on more than one occasion that we would end up in the home we were supposed to end up in.

And he was right.

On the morning we were due to leave for vacation, we decide to take a look at a house that we had previously ruled out because it didn’t have central air conditioning. It wasn’t love at first sight. We had that experience and it fell through for us. Cosmetically, it wasn’t what we were looking for. But what it did have was good bones. It was the EXACT layout of the other homes we had wanted to buy. It was in a lovely neighborhood with access to shops and restaurants all within a five minute drive. New floors we can put in. Paint we can do. A pool we can add. But location. Location. Location. Location. That is key. It’s the one thing you can’t change when buying a house.

And so we left for vacation and told Ted we’d talk to him when we got back. Instead, we lounged on the beach and talked about the house we initially thought we didn’t want. A few days in, we called Ted and asked him start negotiations. He diligently worked on our behalf and understood that we’d only be able to get back to him after we had tossed off our flip flops at the end of each day.

The negotiations went on for some time and the closing seemed like it was never going to happen, but Ted persevered. Having faith the deal would happen when we had given up. He stayed positive. He stayed vigilant. He stayed with us when the going got tough.

So four months after our journey with Ted began, he handed us the keys to our new home.

We went looking for a realtor and found a friend.

"Thanks Ted for your help and support in selling my parents' house. With my parents passing this Summer, the expedient sale of the house was necessary but the emotional ties were strong making the sale very challenging. As this house was my (and my three brothers) home for 45+ years, we appreciated not only your real estate advice, but your understanding of the true "value" of the house. With that, you were able to walk us through the selling process, inspections, negotiations, etc. with advice that was practical, experienced and kept our emotional side in check. And for that, we truly thank you.

In Ted, we got more than a house sale. He understood our situation and helped us reach our goal of getting the real "value" out of our parents' house. If you are looking for a real estate agent who listens to his clients and will go the distance to do more than just sell your house, Ted Miller is your man."

This is our second time using Ted Miller II for a real estate transaction. His professionalism and knowledge of the industry and current trends made our recent sale and purchase flawless. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in a tough economic market.

Ted Miller was our agent during our relocation from NJ to TX, and we were extremely pleased with the work he did for us. He kept us completely informed every step of the way and was always available to us for any questions or concerns we had during the process. At the time, the housing market had taken a severe downturn, but Ted kept a positive attitude while being very honest with us. He provided us with examples of homes selling in our neighborhood and the surrounding area, and advised us based on that data. His instincts were totally on-target, proving to us that his experience and expertise were exactly what we needed.

Ted is professional and knowledgeable while remaining warm and sensitive to his clients. He instills confidence in his clients by demonstrating an attitude of loyalty to them to get the very best contract possible. And after the sale, Ted has remained in contact with us even though it is not likely we will be able to work with him again. 

We consider Ted our friend back in Jersey, and would highly recommend his work to anyone.

We used Ted Miller previously when we purchased our first home and were very happy with him. He was never pushy and we never felt he steered us out of what we were looking for. When we decided to sell our house 6 years later, there was no question that we would call Ted. We knew we trusted him and we could work with him. With Ted's great knowledge of a difficult market our home went on the market and sold without a hitch. Thanks Ted!

We met Ted two years ago at an open house across the street from us, and we were impressed that he sold that house in two weeks. Therefore, when we wanted to sell our house, we thought of Ted first. 

Ted sold our house in three weeks in a tough market. The key to selling our house was that we listened to Ted’s advice, and everything that he said was true. Ted knows Roxbury because he has lived there his whole life. My advice for anyone buying or selling a house is to use Ted as your broker and listen to what he says.

If you follow his advice, you will sell your house.

Ted,

We would highly recommend you to any potential buyer or seller of a home, based on our experience in selling our home. Needless to say, we had many challenges during this process including a slow housing market and a buyer who presented many challenges throughout the selling process. Despite these challenges, thanks to your professionalism, patience, dedication and perseverance, we sold our home.

We have met many people here in Florida at The Villages who have recently moved here, and most of them are amazed that we sold our home so quickly in today's real estate market. Like us, most of them have recently retired, and many now have the financial burden of carrying two homes, and are feeling significant stress. In retrospect, we feel blessed to have sold our home so quickly (even though it felt like forever), especially in light of the slowdown in this market.

Your marketing efforts, both in using the power of the internet, and networking with your extensive satisfied client base, is a competitive advantage to any perspective client of yours. Your experience and knowledge of the Morris County communities and in particularly, Roxbury and the surrounding communities is also a major plus, in exceeding the requirements of your clients.

Thanks for your support and efforts in selling our home. Best of luck and success in the future.

Sincerely, Gene & Jo Vogel

Ted Miller II was wonderful in all areas of selling my home. He sold our house really quickly and, no matter what problems came up, Ted helped me handle them with professionalism and caring.  

I would definitely use his services again and would recommend him to everyone.  

Ted is a wonderful person and other Realtors could learn a thing or 100 from him!

Ted Miller is an old-fashioned real estate agent, and, in my opinion, that's the highest compliment an agent can get. 

You see, Ted doesn't just sell houses. He sells homes, and he takes the time to get to know the people who live in those homes. 

I don't think they come any better than Ted. I wish there were more like him.

Ted was simply fantastic from start to finish. His honesty, professionalism and tact proved to be critical factors in the sale of our home. Ted’s friendly, outgoing personality attracts others to him. His experienced approach helped tremendously while negotiating with prospective buyers, other Realtors and attorneys. 

We would offer our most enthusiastic, unreserved recommendation of Ted Miller II to anyone who might be considering using his services.

My wife and I recently decided to sell our home. Actually, we first toyed with the idea about five years ago. It was then that we contacted Ted Miller II for a market assessment. Ted was both prompt and professional. He asked us insightful questions, provided us with sound advice and never put pressure on us to put the house on the market before we were ready.

Five years later, we found ourselves poised to make that difficult decision. After all, it was the house in which we had raised our three kids and the house we considered home. We did not hesitate to call Ted. He set an initial meeting to review the house – we had made quite a few improvements during the five years since we had last seen Ted – and within less than a week, had developed a very professional proposal detailing a market strategy aimed at selling the house quickly and at a price that would maximize our return. Since we had already purchased a new townhouse in the area, a quick sale at the best price possible was very important to us.

We established a target date for putting the house on the market and worked to put the final touches on our home – after all, it was our home and we wanted it to be seen in the best light. Ted provided much needed input to help us finish things up. Ted’s knowledge of the neighborhood was a complete plus. His strategy called for the using leading edge Internet technology prior to the scheduled open house. When the weekend arrived, my wife and I packed up and headed out for the day. By late Saturday afternoon, Ted called us with the good news – five offers were already on the table! By Sunday afternoon, we had a signed contract for almost $20,000 over the asking price!!

Needless to say, we highly recommend Ted Miller II to anyone considering the sale of his or her home. His style is easy, extremely professional and his results effective. You will feel very comfortable that one of the most important financial decisions that you will ever make is in very good hands. I am confident that Ted will be instrumental in helping you to achieve your goals, just as was in helping us to meet ours.

“Thank you Ted! Your knowledge of the neighborhood made all the difference. Thanks for all your help. We’d recommend you to anyone that’s selling a house our area.”

We recently had the good fortune of working with Ted Miller. Right from the get go, his marketing plans; his recommendations on how to work with potential buyers; his negotiations and closing skills were very impressive. His calm and composed demeanor during the negotiations ensured that we got the best price and not to mention the sale was consummated in less than a week of putting our house in the market. 

Despite the fact that we were in the process of moving out of town, Ted kept us abreast on what was going on and ensured all follow-up actions were completed to our satisfaction. 

To say that we are delighted with Ted's efforts is a massive understatement!! We have no reservations in recommending Ted to people in need of an experienced realtor.

Dear Ted, 

You were highly recommended by friends of ours and we’re glad we used your services to sell our home. We never expected to sell it in 2 days and get asking price! We were very impressed with your professionalism, eagerness and enthusiasm to sell our house. You gave your confidence and trust to us throughout the process of listing and selling our home. We would definitely recommend you to others looking to sell their home.

Dear Ted, 

Staying all the way across the coast in CA, I cannot imagine selling a house on the other coast without the help of a capable and efficient agent like you. You were responsive to our needs and brought results quickly. I appreciate your presentation, you keeping up with technology and the selling tips you provided us that all worked together in making this sale a success. 

Thanks for everything!

In January 2006, I was involved in a corporate relocation from New Jersey to Missouri. My family and I didn’t feel that living apart was the best solution so we packed up a few belongings and headed to Missouri to live in temporary housing. After interviewing several realtors that were sent to us by the relocation company I picked Ted Miller to be the agent to help us sell our home.

His evaluation of the market and his input on pricing the house to maximize our return and also ensure a quick sale were key in my decision to work with Ted. Within days of selecting Ted as our realtor, my family and I left for Missouri. Ted was excellent in how he not only represented and marketed our home, but also in keeping an eye on the place. Ted made sure the driveway was cleared off when it snowed and routinely checked in to make sure our belongings were still there and utilities were working.  

I have been relocated for work to 5 states in 7 years. I can honestly say that I have never worked with any realtor that made me feel more at ease from thousands of miles away then Ted Miller.  

By the way, he also sold my home for full price! I highly recommend Ted Miller to anyone who is looking for a true professional to sell their home.

I highly recommend Ted Miller II for any relocating home seller. Ted was an invaluable resource to me from the beginning, but especially between the time I moved to my new state and began my new job and the time of my closing. Ted rescued me out of multiple situations which were stressful upon learning about them, but completely fine once I talked with Ted and he went into action. Knowing Ted was there to handle things for my sale made me able to start my new job without any worries.

My husband and I recently sold our house through Ted Miller. We could not be happier with the service we received from him and would suggest that anybody contemplating selling their home contact him.  

Ted has a thorough knowledge of the housing market and of Morris County. He knew that it was important for us to sell our house quickly for the best price. After a complete market analysis, Ted Miller priced our house competitively. Our house then sold for full asking price in less than a week. We were thrilled! This was not any easy task to accomplish in this market. 

Ted was there for us through our closing date to answer any questions we had and to assist with negotiations with the buyers. All our calls were answered promptly. Ted provided us with lots of personalized attention and assistance. He made selling our house a pleasant transaction. 

If you would like a realtor who is prompt, professional and gets results, we highly recommend Ted Miller - you won't be disappointed.

Ted, My wife and I wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for all the help you provided our family during our home sale this year. You were extremely responsive, creative and professional in your approach and consistent support. The relationship you created with us was based on trust and you did not let us down.

Selling a home is a very important initiative and we knew we needed to select our Realtor carefully. We ended up selecting you because we knew you were committed full time to this profession, you knew the area, your message was sound and you clearly had a great approach. Your results and support proved that our selection was the correct one. Thanks!

Last, I just wanted to say that we appreciated your style and how you made sure you stayed in touch with us throughout the process. As you know, lack of information and lack of insight during a home sale can be very stressful and you made every attempt to limit those anxious moments and stayed confident and motivated.

Thank you, Allen & Ana LaTournous
