I really appreciate you coming far enough into my site to see "who the heck is Les Fohl and why would you even care….what can I do for you that any other agent can't?" Pretty good question to ask when dealing with something as important as real estate.
I opened my own Brokerage at age 25 and have gone on to learn this business inside and out. I've bought, fixed, and sold hundreds of units personally; represented countless buyers, sellers, and investors; and been fortunate to receive nearly every award for production, and earn every designation for professional education possible along the way. In 2001, Re/Max presented me the top award for all 7,000+ of their agents in all of California and Hawaii, and further recognized me as #17 in the U.S. and #19 in the world. As a result of all of this, I've been fortunate to have the exciting opportunity to speak to thousands of agents in several states over the years, and enjoy sharing what it really takes to build relationships that create ‘Client's For Life"!
As a matter of fact, on February 13, 2011 the Bay Area News Group (publishers of the Oakland Tribune, Contra Costa Times, Daily Review, etc.) published an article that said "Les Fohl was recently recognized for his outstanding production in 2010, placing him as the no. 1 Realtor above all other agents in the Bay East Association of Realtors Central County market (Hayward, Castro Valley, San Leandro, and San Lorenzo). This accomplishment was recently independently verified by California's No. 1 Company for managing MLS/Agent data." While I obviously love this kind of recognition, the truth is I have never strived to be No.1. I've just kept educating myself, growing as a person, and working hard to deliver expert service with a caring touch to my friends and clients.
My experience and track record over the past 37 years has provided me with a distinct advantage over most REALTORS in the area when it comes to serving and advising my clients in their real estate endeavors. Heck I own more units here than most agents than most agents will sell here in their entire career. My primary goal for my clients is to provide a "WOW" experience. As my client I want you to feel confident and comfortable knowing that I know how to help you achieve your real estate goals. When you listen to me, and follow my advice, I know I can make your transaction as stress free as possible. Because my foundation is built on client satisfaction, I will do whatever it takes to make it happen! I listen, understand and find solutions.
If you are "under water" on your loan(s), feeling stuck, losing sleep, and have the weight of the world on your shoulders, I can bring relief almost magically. I understand Short Sales forward and backward, and have the resources to provide you with QUALIFIED legal and/or tax advice. I can guide you through the process, avoid foreclosure, and minimize or eliminate legal or tax liabilities. Keep in mind that the laws regarding short sales are currently set to expire SOON. How about Dec. 31, 2013!!
If you simply want or need to sell, you're not under pressure, and your goals are simply top dollar, in a reasonably short time frame, without a bunch of problems, I've built my reputation delivering these things over and over.
If you are a first time buyer, or an investor, you will really appreciate my knowledge of what to do in order to capitalize on the tremendous opportunities available in the midst of all the craziness we're still experiencing.
Once you work with me you'll realize why my clients continually refer their friends and family my way. When choosing a Realtor, just like choosing a Doctor, Attorney, CPA, or any other valuable professional, you have a choice. Work with someone getting to know the business, someone pretty good, or someone proven over time. If you are the type who prefers the latter, you will quickly see the benefits I bring to your table.
Thank you for reading this. It tells me you are taking your Real Estate thoughts and objectives very seriously. When we talk, you will intuitively feel that I take them and YOU seriously as well. Be blessed.
Sincerely and professionally yours,
Les W. Fohl
