I had just accepted my dream job in what seemed to be our dream location, but the situation forced me to commute between San Diego, CA, and Columbus, OH for almost a year. As anyone not knowing a new area, we were overwhelmed with the search for a home that fit my family’s needs. Our Ohio Realtor® and a very good friend set us up with a relocation specialist through his agency, and we were offered several introductions. In the end, Vince answered all of our questions and returned our phone calls promptly, and ultimately Vince stayed with us unwavering with Herculean strength and found us the perfect home. It was clear when first meeting Vince that he had done his homework and had a good breadth of knowledge of the areas that we had narrowed our search to. As my family was on the other side of the country, we had to do many walk-throughs via webinar (i.e. Skype and/or Facetime). My family…

I had just accepted my dream job in what seemed to be our dream location, but the situation forced me to commute between San Diego, CA, and Columbus, OH for almost a year. As anyone not knowing a new area, we were overwhelmed with the search for a home that fit my family’s needs. Our Ohio Realtor® and a very good friend set us up with a relocation specialist through his agency, and we were offered several introductions. In the end, Vince answered all of our questions and returned our phone calls promptly, and ultimately Vince stayed with us unwavering with Herculean strength and found us the perfect home. It was clear when first meeting Vince that he had done his homework and had a good breadth of knowledge of the areas that we had narrowed our search to. As my family was on the other side of the country, we had to do many walk-throughs via webinar (i.e. Skype and/or Facetime). My family was able to visit and look at a few houses in several areas, but unfortunately no luck during their visit. Vince drove us around and toured the houses with the family’s toughest critic, our 9-year-old daughter. He made her feel included and actually managed to get some worthwhile opinions and feedback from her (hard to imagine). As fate would have it, literally within hours of when my family boarded the plane, the house we ended up buying came on the market. Vince had arranged for us to be the first appointment, but the seller’s Realtor® really turned me off and I left. We went and looked at two more houses, and Vince convinced me to go back and look at the house again when the Realtor® wasn’t there. It made all of the difference. Unfortunately, we ended up being in a bidding war with three other potentials and were faced with a selling agent who was anything but accommodating. Vince remained calm and kept the communication channels open. He found out that the seller’s situation and ours were very similar and brokered the deal with my family’s full confidence. Vince’s natural relationship-building demeanor allowed for all of this to occur without my wife and daughter ever-stepping foot in the house. As soon as the previous owner moved out and we took over the property, we encountered a few problems such as the refrigerator, A/C, and pool pump all stop working over a period of a month. We had many disappointments dealing with our home warranty company and their lackluster contractors. Vince and his team stayed the course helping solve these and other issues even after my family moved into our new home. Vince is professional, even-keeled, steadfast, and heady. He knows the strategy and tactics of the game. We persevered and are extremely grateful and very much satisfied with our home and location. Many gracious kudos to Team Crudo!

We are not first time home buyer but nothing prepared us for the crazy market condition when we bought in the Rancho Bernardo area in May 2021. We are so glad to have Alida Crudo as our buying agent. She is very responsive, knows the market well, and leaves no stones unturned looking for the best of our interests. She worked with us to come up with the best strategy and is super resourceful (from local lender to contractor recommendations), and is able to present us as the top buyer. Her service is really A to Z and we are so lucky we have her as our buying agent. We would highly recommend her.

If you want buying a home to be seamless and easy, Vince is your guy! My husband and I knew nothing about buying a home or the housing market except that all of our friends, who were also looking to buy, had been looking for at least 6 months or more. With a long road of looking ahead of us, we thought we should get the buying and loan process started. Boy, were we wrong about the time frame! After a little over a week, we were approved for loan and in Vince's office discussing where we wanted to live and what we were looking for. During that visit, we started getting listings sent to our phone, and there were a couple of houses we wanted to see. We went to see both places two days later, and made an offer on the second house. The next day, the listing price went up so we made a second offer. In the meantime, Vince was doing his homework on the seller and other real estate company. This …

After a little over a week, we were approved for loan and in Vince's office discussing where we wanted to live and what we were looking for. During that visit, we started getting listings sent to our phone, and there were a couple of houses we wanted to see. We went to see both places two days later, and made an offer on the second house. The next day, the listing price went up so we made a second offer. In the meantime, Vince was doing his homework on the seller and other real estate company. This made our experience more personal. We felt like we stood out more to the other party. The same night we made the second offer, we received an email about the seller requesting a final offer. The owner wanted to close the deal and there were several offers on the table, including some for all cash. We gave Vince our final offer and he submitted it that night. The next day, we waited but no decisions had been made. Vince contacted their agent to slip in one last and final offer for us. 2 hours later, our it had been accepted-even beating out some cash offers! Within a month, we were moving in! My husband and I love our new place! Since then, we have received follow up emails answering any questions we have. Even though the process of buying the house is finished, our relationship with Vince is strong. We would recommend him to anyone who is ready get into their new home with ease and satification!

Alida Crudo did an amazing job helping us buy a home in Carmel Valley! She is extremely proactive and went above and beyond to help us land exactly the home we wanted. She advised us on making a competitive offer in an extremely difficult market and even helped us craft a letter to the seller that ultimately led to the seller choosing our offer. Throughout the escrow process she stayed on top of the details, advised us on negotiations, and made sure everything ran smoothly. I highly recommend Alida Crudo to anyone looking for a real estate agent who will take the initiative to get things done!

With Vince’s help, we found a home in one weekend and since we didn’t live in the area yet, he basically did all the homework, walk throughs and inspections for us. We were sweating bullets before flying down to look for homes, but with Vince’s help, it was pretty easy and straightforward. We gave him a few listings that seemed to have potential and he drove us to each one all over the SD area. Patient, professional and not pushy at all. He’d ask us how we felt without being judgmental on our high expectations and looked out for us too as he cautioned us on some poorly flipped houses. Super polite and easy going, even with two sets of parents and a baby in tow. When we made our final decision, Vince did the homework, did the comps and put in our offer as we went to the airport. At the gate, the seller came back with a counter and we agreed. When we landed, we were told they accepted. In …

At the gate, the seller came back with a counter and we agreed. When we landed, we were told they accepted. In ONE weekend, we found a home! All the paperwork was digital and Vince answered all our questions. He prepped everything, made sure everything on the inspection report was fixed and even met with the previous owner on a walk through to show us how to work certain things around the house. When we finally moved to the area, Vince met up with us, gave us a walk through, even up into the hot attic on a 95 degree day and welcomed us to our new home. Professional, polite and very knowledgeable, we are so glad we were connected with Vince in purchasing our first new home. Highly recommend him for the San Diego area.
