Glenn Smith

Dear John, I won’t presume to say, “I know what you must have gone through to sell

“The House on Summit.’”  But I will say that every time a problem came up, you would 
tell me, “I’ll take care of it”, and you did.  2015 had been a very difficult year: my 
mother’s failing health, her death, endless estate sales to clear out the years of 
accumulated “stuff”.  Finally, the day arrived for the house to be sold, and I asked Greg 
Murrell “Who can help?”, and his immediate response was, “John Lefferdink.”.  From the 
first moment I met with you and Sharon to discuss the realty process, I knew that “The 
Gods” had decided to favor me for a change…favor me big time!  Throughout all the 
complications that arose with the property your response was always, “I’ll take care of 
it”, and you did.  Thank you.  Thank you for help me and Louise to get on with our life.  
With gratitude, Glenn Smith

Steve & Bonnie Gosselin

Dear John, I want to recognize you and your team for your hard work and dedication to

selling our home in a very difficult market. After having not one, but two, deals in escrow 
fall through, you never lost your optimism or commitment to get our home sold at the 
best possible price. After moving nine times with our company, I can say that we never 
had a real estate agent work as hard on our behalf to bring us an acceptable offer. Your 
above and beyond service to us was truly exceptional.... including the scheduling of 
repair work, the occasional call out for a false security alarm, and helping to complete 
shipment of our daughter's car back to Illinois. I doubt there is any real estate team 
anywhere that provides the high quality, "full-services" you gave us over the past year.  
Sincerely, Steve & Bonnie Gosselin

Brian Ilfeld. M.D.

I am extraordinarily happy with all you did to get the Meadows Del Mar house sold and 

Hunters Glen Drive house purchased... you have rekindled my faith in real estate 
agents after it had been snuffed out three years ago when we originally bought MDM.  
My guess is that I'll be moving again in 2-3 years, and have no doubt you will be the first 
(and only) person I call!
 - Brian Ilfeld. M.D.

Rudy Svrcek

To whom it may concern, As a management director of The Crosby at Rancho Santa

Fe, I hired John Lefferdink and his team to promote and sell the custom lots. He is very 
knowledgeable of this market and did a great job selling the lots. His high energy and 
positive attitude made a difference to the sales success of The Crosby.  Best regards, 
Rudy Svrcek

Christopher & Michelle Calhoun

Selling a house is more than posting a sign in the front yard, accepting the offer and

cashing the check. A successful sale reflects strategic planning to position the property 
for the market, value, staging and messaging to attract the right buyers and bring the 
right offers as quickly and smoothly as possible. The right agents know their markets 
and the respective value and can not only position the property, but leverage that 
knowledge to negotiate the best deal. Then the real work starts which includes all the 
blocking and tackling to insure everything is satisfied in preparation for the closing. 
Managing the details of escrow is significant and the right agent is active, present 
and diligent in everything from the appraisal to the inspections and any corrections or 
repairs to be completed.  The end goal is a happy buyer and a satisfied seller.  John 
connected all the dots from strategic planning and positioning, actively managed the 
process and every detail and smoothly carried to completion the exceptional sale of our 
home. Michelle and I would not only plan to use John again - we are using him again as 
we purchase our next property.  Sincerely, Christopher & Michelle Calhoun

Bruce and Evelyn Ducker

It was so nice working with John Lefferdink.  We feel we have known both you and

Sharon for a long time.  You made the sale of the house very easy with all you did to 
sell it.  We thanked attorney Greg Murrell for recommending you. You are professional, 
dependable and completely trustworthy.  You got results quickly which significantly 
exceeded our expectations.  We had no knowledge of Realtors or of the local market 
and your guidance proved invaluable to us at this difficult time.  Bruce and Evelyn 

Terry Rossworn

John, Thank you so much for everything. The sale was “almost” stress free, because of 

you, your strength, manner and intelligence. You have not heard the last of me. When I 
get turned around, I will be back to do some investing. Meanwhile, keep me in mind for 
a ‘fixer’. -Terry Rossworn

Dave and Maria Olson

Kelley Lefferdink is a phenomenal Real Estate agent.  Kelley and her staff are very

knowledgeable, professional and supportive.  She helped us sell a home in Rancho 
Santa Fe and find a new home in Del Mar.  This was a stressful time because we 
wanted to keep our teens in the same school and inventory was very tight.  Kelley 
worked tirelessly for us and makes you feel like you are the most important couple in 
the world.  She knows the coastal communities inside and out.  She’s terrific before, 
during and after the sale!  Do yourself a favor and call or email Kelley first.  Dave and 
Maria Olson

Robert Reed

I want to thank you for your expert help with selling our Cardiff duplex in such a 

professional and timely manner. We appreciate your efficient staff who are very nice. 
We were very happy with the whole experience and would recommend you to anyone 
who wants to sell their property.” – Robert Reed

Jon and Brittani Gurwitt

John & Sharon, Brittani and I cannot thank you both enough for everything you have 

done to get us into our new home! We are still doing some work on it, but are looking to 
move everything in this weekend and cannot wait to have you over to celebrate.  We 
were also so completely overwhelmed to see the gifts you had given us - just getting us 
into that house was amazing enough.  You guys had gone above and beyond and 
continued to do so with the amazing gift certificate to Ruth Chris and the fantastic 
knives!  (I have attached a picture of us at dinner).   We thank you from the bottom of 
our hearts and will continue to share our amazing experience with any prospective 
buyers we come across. - Jon and Brittani Gurwitt

Patty and Jerry Endler

To all home buyers:  If you’re anything like us, you need to find an agent with a great 

sense of humor about never giving up helping people realize their dreams.  Please meet 
Sharon Belsly of John Lefferdink & Associates.  She showed us through 23 homes with 
great persistence, humor, and a never give up attitude before we found “the one”.  
Sharon was our perfect match.  Sharon was able to negotiate with the owner a win-win 
offer which was accepted and we are not the proud owners of “our place”.  We never 
would have accomplished this without Sharon – she was perfect for us and we know 
she’d be perfect for any home buyer seeking an agent. 
Patty and Jerry Endler

Mark & Nyree Saad

John, We wanted you to know that we are tremendously appreciative of the outstanding

effort that both you and the rest of the great Lefferdink team made in selling our home 
on Rio Rancho.  We know the environment is not the best for sellers and you delivered 
an excellent outcome for us finding a strong buyer who truly valued our home.  You 
expertly managed our expectations and delivered.  We would enthusiastically work with 
you again and can’t thank you enough.  Mark & Nyree Saad

Timothy Salter

My wife and I recently hired Kelley Lefferdink with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services,

to list our home. We were able to get our home under contract as soon as we contacted 
Kelley. Kelley was extremely diligent throughout the escrow period and provided 
invaluable assistance. She was always available for us, often meeting us late into the 
evening. We would not hesitate to recommend Kelley to anyone looking for a real 
professional who will take the time to do whatever is necessary to see the
transaction to its completion.  Timothy Salter

Mike Reed

“John, I wish to express my appreciation for the excellent work you and your staff did on the successful sale of our Cardiff property. All of you were responsive and timely with all of our concerns, especially with the unique seller negotiations.”
