"Ida helped our family out with the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current one. She was able to sell our home at full asking price. Our former home was in a prime location, but had less than desirable curb appeal. Ida is a calm, yet completely determined realtor. We felt confident about her abilities every step of the way and would definitely use her again!"
"Ida and Ted did a wonderful job marketing our house. I believe that the Duwe-Olsen Group is the best, particularly in West Fort Worth. They know the market, from years of experience, and they stay on top of all the normal issues that pop up during the process. I highly recommend them."
"Ida has a great knowledge of the market and did an excellent job marketing my house to other Realtors® and the buying community. Her advice about staging, repairs, pricing and negotiating were all solid and she did a great job of getting the house sold despite the market. I will use Ida again for any real estate transaction I do."
"Ted guided us through the process and we were able to get what we wanted for our home. Fast forward three years later and we were back in the market to purchase a home. We were quite pleased with the way Ted handled our previous sale, so we naturally reached out for his expertise in locating our new home. Ted was extremely patient with us as we viewed homes in Fairmount. We love our new home and we loved working with Ted. If you ever have a need for a Realtor®, we would highly recommend Ted Olsen. He is patient, accommodating, knowledgeable, and easy to work with on all aspects of the transaction. Buying a home can be a painful experience and I can honestly say because of Ted, this one was a breeze."
"Ted did a great job for us. He was professional, courteous, and responsive. We’ve worked with 4-5 excellent Realtors® over the past 20 years. However, Ted set himself apart by consistently going the extra mile and providing white-glove service to our family."
"Ida sold me my first home and I could not have been more pleased with my experience with her! She made the process of purchasing my first house so much less stressful. I recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the DFW area. Ida is extremely knowledgeable about the area. Along with being an extremely successful and professional real estate agent, she brings a positive attitude and spirit to every aspect of the process. I will never use another agent as long as I am buying/selling homes in the Fort Worth area!"
"With my first time buying a house, Ida and her team made everything super streamlined. They explained the entire process to me, were very patient with all my questions, and helped me fight for a fair deal. The property I purchased was far from traditional, but Ida, Cassidy and Sophie definitely proved what this professional and experienced group is capable of. This team helped me through negotiations, assisted with setting up inspections, made necessary changes to the contract, and fought for me with the lenders and appraisers. This property may have been a challenge for most REALTOR® groups, but they didn’t falter. Truly thankful for the Duwe-Olsen Real Estate Group - I can honestly say I could not have done it without them."
"Ted was recommended to us and I'm so glad he was. Although our sell was an easy one, Ted was always extremely responsive to all of our questions and needs. We would definitely recommend him for any Fort Worth and surrounding area Real Estate sales."
"Thanks to everyone, especially Ida. It was a pleasure working with you and the rest of your team. Ida and I really seemed to 'click' immediately and that made the process less stressful. Thanks again for everything!"
"We have leveraged Ida’s acute market knowledge, local insight and white glove client experience for both buying and selling homes. Ida’s sophisticated, yet pragmatic approach to assessing the needs and ultimately finding the best fit for her clients is her true strength. A person with high integrity and dedicated client service, I would recommend Ida for buying or selling any home!"
"We moved to Texas from Cincinnati and Ida was referred to us by a friend. As a Fort Worth native, she was so informative on the different neighborhoods and school districts (hardest decision when you’re moving to a new city with school-aged children!). We feel so good about the house we found and Ida made a potentially stressful move so enjoyable!"
