Reviews and Testimonials

-Staci Walker

“My husband and I have bought many properties with this group. They also help us with the rental side of our business. Very professional and never a pushy sales person. Excellent communication and easy to work with. You couldn’t find a better group to make your sale or purchase as easy as it was for us. 10+ transactions and will always be my first call. You won’t be disappointed.”


“Lori is a super realtor. She incorporated into her search for us our desires and requirement for our new home. We were emailed almost daily with homes fitting our criteria and called when anything new was listed. She is the one that found our new house which we are pleased with. She’s a good sport having to show us about 15 or so houses. Choosing her was a excellent decision for us.”

-Chris Haskins

“Lori was patient understanding and on target every time we needed her. Very professional! Lori was our buying agent and should we decide to ever sell our lovely home Lori will be the first agent we call.”


“I happened upon Lori Rathburn when she was listing a house that I was interested in renting. I called her to have her show me. After that showing and talking with Lori, I decided that the best thing for me was to try and see if I could buy a house. She had a loan officer that she highly recommended. I found another house I wanted to look at and Lori was happy to show me. She got me in touch with the loan officer so that all of my financing could be in place once I found a home. Lori worked tirelessly to find me and my two children the perfect house. I could call her any time of the day and she would answer her phone with a happy hello and usually within an hour or so we were meeting at another house for her to show me. I never felt like she pushed me into buying a house because she was tired of dealing with me and that she just wanted her commission. She made me feel like she was in it for the long haul until I found the perfect house. She never tried to push her opinions on to me but after looking at quite a few houses together she could read me. We went back to the same house three times to make sure that it was exactly what I wanted. We put in the offer, I had the financing in place and we were ready to close. The week we were set to close the loan officer called Lori and for some reason decided not to finance my purchase of the house. Lori jumped into action and called another loan officer that she went to a presentation of his company and called him. That same day I was contacted by this loan officer and the date to close was only pushed back by less than a week. Lori has stopped by the house several times to check on me and my children to see if we were still happy with our choice. She still calls me to check up on me and my children and has even been so kind as to make us her blue ribbon banana bread. Lori is not just a realtor she is my realtor for any future plans that I have in real estate. Thank you Lori for your honesty, sincerity, knowledge and caring.”

Ted was awesome to work with. He was patient throughout our search. He is knowledgeable about his profession. Even though I am an experienced real estate buyer/investor, I learned new ideas from Ted. I would easily recommend Ted and his firm.

Over the years we have worked with many real estate agents. Evelyn Krailo stands out as being our favorite one so far! We were moving from out of state and didn’t know the area well. She listened to our needs and carefully researched communities that fit our parameters and then even mailed us a package with information and maps of the area! Her patience and helpfulness, along with her hard work and dedication to finding the right fit for us were all great character qualities. Evelyn was readily available and punctual to appointments, even setting up more viewings on the fly when we were out looking at properties and passed something that looked potentially interesting. When we found the right home, Evelyn represented us very well and worked tirelessly into the night negotiating for us. We never felt pressured working with her; it was more like we had a friend in the business that cared about our family. We would not hesitate to recommend Evelyn to anyone looking for a real estate advocate.

-B.J. Rodgers

We cannot recommend Ted highly enough! His professionalism and attentiveness went above and beyond the expected. Listed on a Friday, open house on Saturday and had a contract that Monday! His willingness to do what was needed and represent us every step of the way made selling our house a true pleasure. Thank you!

–Steve and Karen Powers

My wife and I were driving around Inks Lake looking for property when we met Ted & his wife out walking their dog. On the spot, Ted called some contacts trying to get information for us. From that moment on Ted provided the best possible service in securing and buying our property. Ted’s professionalism, depth and breadth of his experience, his attention to detail coupled with his timely & concise communications throughout the process made this the best real estate buy we have ever been involved with. We were so fortunate to run into Ted that day!

-Seth Woolery

Ted Omohundro of Red Mansions Realty is a genuine, first-class agent. I believe his industry professionalism and knowledge of the area make him a valuable asset to any buyer or seller. Ted assisted my family as a buyer’s agent during our search for a vacation home in the Meadow Lakes / New Braunfels area. He works diligently with his clients to maintain their best interest throughout the entire process. Ted receives my highest regard as a professional and look forward to working with him in the future.

-Stuart & Paula Smith

Ted & Jerry were a delight to work with.
The personal yet very Professional Manner in which they executed every detail of our search for the Perfect Lake Home for us…was awesome!  They were accessible and very helpful.  A Rewarding Experience.

-Samantha Menger

Lori was very helpful when my fiancé and I were looking for our first rental home. From the moment we met Lori she took the time to listen to exactly what we were looking for and went above and beyond to make sure we found a home to rent. She was also very easy to get in contact with! Lori genially cared about us and what we were needing in a home, and she was able to help us find exactly what we were looking for!

-Paul & Barb Moak

Ted Omohundro has been our leasing agent for approximately one year now and we have found that he is very capable of handling any and all of our concerns. We have found him to be truthful in all items and concerns and we feel that he has become a friend rather than an agent. We recommend Ted with honor.

-Kathleen Rockwood

I cannot speak highly enough of Ted Omohundro’s work in assisting me with the purchase of several rental properties, their renovations and their rentals. He has guided me through the purchasing agreements by suggesting appropriate offers. He has made recommendations about repairs needed and what they will probably cost. He has selected good tenants for the properties and takes care to see that everything is in working order for them. Additionally his record keeping is extensive and very helpful to my CPA. All of this has made my properties very easy to manage and I am quite pleased with the return on my investments.
It has been a pleasure to work with Ted.

-Mark Enders

It was a pleasure working with Ted Omohundro. He was always prompt and responsive and was never “pushy”. This was our first home purchase and Ted did a great job of ensuring that we were knowledgable of all aspects of the process. I would definitely recommend Ted to others looking for a real-estate agent.


I was moving from Virginia to Texas about two months ago. Unsure of how to find a house to rent, I googled (like we all do these days) real estate offices in New Braunfels Texas. I came upon Red Mansions Realty, and contacted Ted Omohundro. Within a few hours of leaving a message he had called me back and we began to discuss what I was looking for exactly. In less than a day he had sent me several listings that were in my price range, and was not being pushy like most Realtors I have dealt with in my life. Through a series of phone calls and emails my wife and I were able to find a place we really wanted to rent and applied. I had never seen the house till I arrived in Texas a week later. The only person that had, was Ted, and he had not lied about how nice it was. He was so accommodating and helpful to us in our situation, it being a long distance sight unseen rental, that he has won a customer for life. We are thinking about purchasing this home when our lease is up, and Ted will be the man to broker the deal for us. If you really want someone who is down to earth and will actually listen to what you want and can afford, Ted and Red Mansions Realty is the company to go with.

-Scott and Lorena Wyler

Ted Omohundro has been tireless in his efforts performing duties as both our Real Estate Agent and Property Manager. No questions that Ted goes above and beyond expectations.

-Keith Campbell

Ted Omohundro is an outstanding professional real estate agent! I would recommend Ted to any family who desires to work with an agent who will be timely in his appointments, diligent in his negotiations with other realtors all while carrying himself in a very professional manner. Ted walked us through the offer and helped us make a deal closing counter offer that got us a price that we are very happy with! Ted helped us get dozens of showings and an acceptable offer within 30 days of listing our house. I would and have recommended Ted to anyone who wants to have a great realtor representing their home!

-Debbie W.

Ted Omohundro not only listed our home, but he also sold it by bringing in his own client. From the time we talked to Ted about listing our home he provided us with all the information that we needed to set a reasonable sales price. About 2 months in advance of listing the home he walked thru it and gave us valuable information on how to prepare the home for listing. He is always available and even stopped by personally to help us find new financing on the property that we were buying, even though it was out of his territory. He helped us to sort thru & negotiate the 5 contracts that we recieved on our property in the 10 days that it took to sell it. This whole process has been smooth and painless thanks to Ted’s professionalism and knowledge that he brought to the table. Thank you Ted!

-Ann K.

I strongly agree with Keith Campbell. Ted Omohundro is an outstanding professional real estate agent! He helped us find our home in New Braunfels. He also was extremely helpful in the negotiations process. We were moving from over four hours away and had limited time to look at homes. Ted is very familiar with the area and knows the market. Even though I had spent hours on the internet Ted found us a home that I had not considered. It was perfect! With his knowledge of the market we were able to find a home that met our needs and negotiated a very reasonable price. Ted was so accommodating to our schedule and the purchase went off without a hitch. I highly recommend using Red Mansions Realty. I have used a number of realtors over the years and Ted is simple the best. Thanks again Ted!


Ted Omohundro was awesome! Knows his stuff and was very easy to work with. We relied on him to know what we should list the house at, and he priced it perfectly – We sold in three weeks! High standards, prompt responses and attentive service were the normal experience with him. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

-Dixie and Christian

Ted recently helped us buy a home and things could not have run smoother! He did a great job of explaining everything and helping us get the best deal possible. He is very quick to answer calls and texts, and works very efficiently. We look forward to using him as our property manager, and would highly recommend him to any other family searching for a real estate agent.

-Vicki Ragsdale

Ted Omohundro and his staff have been a pleasure to work with. Ted was always prompt to answer any questions and very attentive to the rental property. I would highly recommend this realtor for housing or rental needs.

Ted was the first experience we had selling a home. We didn’t totally know what to expect or how long it would take. We were excited and nervous at the same time.

The first time we met with Ted, he put our minds at ease. He explained everything thoroughly and even contacted people during our first meeting to get some feedback on where we were thinking of buying. We trusted Ted from the start.

We had a ton of interest on our home and it sold in a good amount of time! The sale of our home was complicated and toward the end, became very trying due to some issues on the buyer’s side. Through it all, Ted was with us every step of the way. He was great at communicating every detail to us and kept such a positive attitude. When we became overwhelmed with the process, he lifted us up and reassured us. He went above and beyond. Ted was not just an agent to us. He is a friend.

If you’re looking for an agent that you can trust and is going to work hard, then Ted is who you want handling your real estate. We have been blessed to experience this with someone who really cares for his clients. We are in our new home and loving it!

Thank you, Ted!

-Joanne and Jorge Lozano

Ted was our property manager for our rental house. During our time renting, Ted was readily accessible for any problems that arouse. With that in mind, we used him as our agent for purchasing a new house. He listened to our “wish list” and kept us alert to any new homes that came on the market that he thought we would be interested in without giving us any undo pressure. In the end, we came upon a house that was exactly in area where we wanted to purchase. He was involved in the entire process We are not “first time” home buyers and would without a second thought use Ted as our agent. He was a joy to work with and made our buying experience a positive experience.

-Lynn S.

I wanted to thank you again for your steadiness, willingness to dig for the facts, unshakeable personality as we went through the process of finding the perfect place after the rough start in the vulture-haunted log home. Your honesty and sense of humor made it a pleasure to work with you. I will always be grateful for the series of random connections that made it all happen.

-Leslie Redwine Burch

Ted went above and beyond the call of duty to sell my home. He helped with every detail off the sell, from recommending a well researched price point to offering guidance as to how I could make the home more presentable. My home sold within weeks and at an excellent price. I am very thankful for all Ted’s hard work and personal attention.

-The Montenegro’s

Lisa was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional, polite, eager, and most of all fun!! The buying and selling process can be a big headache as many of you may find out. Lisa made the process run smoothly and kept us well informed. She was always a step ahead and made sure our interest came first. If you are looking to buy or sell, don’t let Lisa slip by. You will be missing out on a great opportunity to work with a Professional. Thank you for helping us find our Gem.”

-Vicki Williams

“Ted is the most honest and hard working realtor we have ever worked with. He went above and beyond in making our house close. We ran into many many obstacles, but Ted calmly worked us through each one to a very profitable end. I would recommend him to anyone.”

-Matthew McHazlett

“From the beginning Ted was awesome and he only got better as the process went on. He was punctual with communication, sincere in all conversations and above all he knows his real estate and he was able to help provide valuable experience throughout our purchase. This purchase is the 6th house that my wife and I have made over the years and it was by far the best experience we have ever had. If you are looking for a great realtor to work with, look no further than Ted, he will get the job done.”

-Russell and Sherry Caddell

“Ted Omohundro has been a very professional and hardworking realtor for us.  He gave us excellent advice on how to make our home more marketable as well as listed it on several sites.  Anytime we had a question he was quick to answer our calls, even if he was on vacation.  He goes above and beyond what is required of him by applying his years of experience in the real estate industry.  Ted gets the job done!  We highly recommend him and we will use his expertise again in the future.”

–Maria E.

“Hey Ted, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the time you spent with me today. You were the epitome of what a real estate agent should be. You were highly responsive, flexible, knowledgeable, organized, honest, and patient. I am sure there is something I am forgetting.. Even when halfway through the day I mentioned that it was a possibility that my husband might stay on at his job past December, you continued to treat me as if I were your number one priority. (A lot of real estate agents might’ve found an excuse to quit showing me homes after knowing that was a possibility) It meant a lot to me that you took my search and needs seriously. You were awesome!”
