Primary point of contact: Ian McVeigh & Claudia Thomas
The Select Realty Group was instrumental in helping my family purchase a home just in time for the holidays. Ian's exceptional knowledge of the area was a great help in making sure our first option was not our only one (but ended up being). I discovered areas within a few miles I never new of. Claudia referred us to Ian as she was representing the seller & in good faith, she wanted to make sure that the transaction was ethical/fair. They teamed up & provided a world of resources to make sure we had all the ground work in place to make an educated decision. The process was seamless & they both exemplified everything that we imagine a world class real estate group to be. Communication was very fluid & all the scheduling of the necessary services to ensure closing prior to the settlement deadline were executed flawlessly. I commend you both on demonstrating the utmost professionalism & teamwork. You have a very satisfied client in us. I highly recommend Claudia, Ian & the entire group at Select Realty. Very much appreciated. Rippon Sub-Division bought in late November 2014

Ian was awesome. He found us exactly what we were looking for. He was quick and always available to assist us. He also helped us with our financing by putting us in contact with First Savings to ensure we closed in a timely manner. On a scale of 1-5, we give him a 10!

In two months, the Select Team assisted our family with the sale of our house and the purchase of our next house. Throughout the stress, home improvement efforts, and anxiety of finding our next house, Greg and his team's composure calmed us and talked me 'away from the ledge'. I feel like they've seen it all before, because they answered all of our questions immediately and offered sound advice that proved true. Their professionalism and can-do work ethic is the reason we used their services in 2008 and 2014 and will definitely use again, when the need arises. If you are selling or purchasing "anything", I highly recommend Greg Lydell's Select Team.

We had an amazing experience with Select Team, specifically realtor Jason Swaney. He was so informative and quick to respond to any and every question we had, no matter what time of the day or night it was. We told him what type of home we were looking for and found multiple properties for us to go see. He offered amazing feedback for us when we asked for it and did so with a smile on his face. I would HIGHLY recommended Jason Swaney to anyone looking for a realtor!!!!

Primary point of contact: Ed Torres
I found Select Realty through my credit union (they came highly recommended). I worked with Ed Torres from the team, and from day one it was a fantastic experience. Ed helped my wife and I find our home in only three days of looking, and helped negotiate a fantastic deal with the sellers. Ed called and emailed us daily with status updates and communications from the sellers. Ed didn't hard-sell, pressure, or push. He explained every part of the process, and stayed on top of paperwork. Ed really cares for his clients, and really made us feel like we were his *only* clients - always making time for us, and working around our schedule. I hope to do business with Ed and Select Realty again!

I would never take the time to write a review unless I found it absolutely necessary to share my experience with others. I had the best experience with the Select Realty Team, specifically realtor Ed Torres! Ed is like no other, he truly values his client and works around the clock to put your concerns (nothing too small or too big) as his top priority. I initially started the home-selling process as a For Sale By Owner, considering that I'm a pretty savvy market-watcher and understand the industry pretty well. Little did I fully-understand all the negotiation, representation, timeliness, and expertise it really takes to sell real estate. Ed and the Select Realty Team represented me with top-level service as a seller and buyer! Ed is extremely knowledgeable, professional, timely, and thoughtful of his buyer's and seller's needs. Ed's initial presentation was confidant, well-researched and forward-thinking; I thought it was a tall order to fill, however I now realize it was nothing in comparison to the execution that Ed and the Select Realty Team will deliver. Here's the big difference between choosing Select Realty, specifically Ed Torres and any other realtor....you can be a "prospective" buyer or "prospective" seller with any other realtor for many months/years or will BE a very satisfied buyer and/or seller with Select Realty in no time at all. They are CLOSERS, plain and simple!! I will not let any other friend or family member looking to buy or sell their home choose none other than Ed Torres because I can genuinely say that he will represent them fully and he'll be saying "Congratulations" before they know it. I"ll close with these ever-ringing four words that Ed always reassured me with "We'll Make it Happen!" Thank you, Ed! Words can never really fully express how much I appreciate your dedication and persistence in the sale and purchase of my dream home!

Great move for me! Glad I found Greg here while searching. Looking for a home, searched for days, then inquired about one of the homes that interest me. Was contacted within 5 minutes by Ed... it took me off guard when my phone rang, He told me he was the team guy in this area. Honestly, I did not expect a response from an agent that quick. Anyway, very impressive. We met at the home, I did not like it. Ed told me there were 6 others similar. I asked when we could see them. Ed then pulled out a folder with the other 6 and said Do you have time now, or do you want to schedule another time? I had time, we looked at them. I did not like any of those either! Ed then worked with me for over a month. Finally found the home I loved! Thanks Ed!

This team did a great job selling our townhouse. Greg and Anthony worked together to make it a successful sale. Even though the buyers had issues at the last minute, Greg and Anthony handled it perfectly to make it smooth. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.
