Testimonials for Rachel Martiens and Kathy Tyndall = The Tyndall Team
We had a great experience with Kathy and Rachel throughout the entire buying process. This includes searching and showing listings to placing an offer, the escrow process, up to the final close. Their greatest strengths are their real estate expertise and their quick responsiveness throughout the experience.
I highly recommend working with them.

Our experience in selling our home of 20 years was made bearable by and through the efforts of Kathy and Rachel. They were a professional team and were extremely helpful when dealing with the various steps in getting the sale signed , sealed & delivered.
They possessed everything a seller would appreciate and look for in an agent, along with being friendly and empathetic throughout the entire process.
We would definitely recommend the Tyndalls!

Rachel & Kathy are the sweetest gals, and so professional..
They were there for us every step of the way, and were very caring..
This is the second transaction the Rachel, aka The Tyndall Team, has helped us with. They actually helped us buy and sell our first home at a profit we are quite satisfied with! We couldn't have asked for a sharper and more astute representative during this involved process. We appreciate their knowledge, due diligence and flexibility to our wants and needs. They really know how to take care of their clients and we truly adore them. We can't wait to tackle our next investment with their expertise!
Originally, my husband and I were looking to buy a home on the Westside with a focus on Culver City. We looked left, right, up, and down. We were passed up on offers three times, and couldn't get a hold on a house we truly loved. Even the ones we put offers on were definitely not our dream home. We constantly felt like we were settling.
Once we decided to expand our search to the South Bay, we asked Kathy and Rachel to help us locate a home that was in our budget and met all of our criterion. It took Rachel one night to come up with a comprehensive list of homes that matched very closely to what we were looking for. Rachel showed us the home we just bought the day after she sent us the list, and we immediately fell in love. It was literally the first house I really felt giddy about.
The home was on the market for 2 days before we saw it and already had multiple offers. We saw it on a Thursday, and we had to leave for New York on Friday! I was in a panic. I wanted the house... badly. Poor K+R had to deal with our texts, emails, and phone calls all Thursday night. They put the offer in that night. We found out that we were in contention with 8 other offers! On the flight to NY, I could only think about the home.
Once we landed in NY, K+R contacted and informed us that she and the selling agent had been negotiating. They established a great rapport with the sellers' agent, and was very well-informed on exactly what they were looking for. They had us write a personal letter to the sellers and gave us a list of what would make us the most favorable buyer.
The sellers asked for a final and best offer from all of the potential buyers, and K+R knew exactly what was necessary to seal the deal. The sellers accepted! We felt like we got an incredible home for a reasonable price in such a competitive market.
Of course, we were still in New York at this point, scrambling to get loan documents together and coordinate the inspections. K+R said, "no problem," and handled the inspections in our absence.
A few days later, and we were back in Los Angeles. We were on a tight loan deadline, and K+R kept us well-informed, put the appropriate pressure on the sellers, bank, escrow and title company when necessary, and despite some tense repair negotiations, got us through escrow with our sanity intact.
One month after close of escrow, K+R are still helping us out with handyman recommendations, making sure we received appropriate closing documents, and even greeted us at our home with a bottle of champagne along with our keys!
K + R were truly amazing. They went up and beyond the call of duty, and best of all dealt with all our neurotic and panicked behavior with grace.
We HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!!!

Dear Kathy and Rachel:
We want to thank you so much for your help to purchase our new house. Today, our whole family went up there; we really like our new house. We really appreciate your great effort and valuable advise in the stressful process of purchase this home. From the beginning of showing us the houses until finishing the transaction, you were always very prepared and were available to answer our questions any time when we needed you. You made us feel very comfortable to work with you. We will always remember you when we step into our new home. We will not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends. We certainly will ask your help again to buy or sell our homes in the future.
When you are making one of the biggest financial decisions in your life, you need someone you can trust and who makes you feel this is just as important to her as it is to you. Rachel does this in every step of process; by doing her homework-she knows her territory well; paying attention to every detail in the transaction-she listens to her clients and follows up in a timely manner. But mostly having genuine enthusiasm and happiness for you and your new home shows her dedication to her work ethic and her clients! I will continue to use her expertise whenever I can!
