Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Murrieta, CA.
I will start by saying ...I do not write on-line reviews very often. The service must be exceptional for me to take the time to write a review.(after all.. we paid for this service so you must go above and beyond to receive a review)

We decided to hire Lisa and Goran Forss to sell our home in Murrieta. We noticed the market had started to change and we wanted to have someone who invested a lot in marketing and also had a great experience SELLING homes. They go above and beyond in marketing your home. I do not want to give away all of their trade secrets but they absolutely do everything possible to sell your home. We have used other agents in the past and they blew us away with what they paid out of their own pocket to help sell our home. The transaction went as smooth as it could have and actually closed early. Our home received top dollar in a market that was in decline. We would highly recommend them and we will use them again!

Rebecca and Tim: We had a bit of a challenge as your home on Pepperleaf was facing a busy road (Calle Del Oso Oro) but we're extremely pleased we were able to get you multiple offers, including a full-price offer. We truly appreciate the opportunity to work with you and please keep in touch. Thanks also for referring your neighbor. We're also able to sell his home for top dollar.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Temecula, CA.
We did a search online to find the best agent to sell our home in Meadowview, Temecula. Lisa and Goran Forss popped up as one of the best with great reviews and a very impressive track record. However, what really sold us on them is that they claimed that they would get us 'top dollar' for our property. Within a week we had a full-price offer and it was the price we wanted. The buyers requested a three-week escrow, so it was just one month from the day we put our house up for sale until we were out. What more could we have gotten from a real estate agent? Action speaks louder than words and they delivered! We highly recommend Lisa and Goran.

Jean and Mike: We love to set new records, make our clients happy and walk away with more money in their pocket - and also enjoy a smooth transaction. Everyday we continue to improve how to market homes on every available marketing outlet, giving our seller's and edge through our marketing and technology. We invest tons of money into marketing and we will continue to do so as long as we generate higher sales prices for our sellers. We all see all these websites online and everyone seems to be claiming to be #1. Our local MLS shows who has SOLD most homes. We're so happy to have achieved this position and we're extremely proud to be recognized by Wall Street Journal this year as one of the top realtors nationwide, and that's out of 1.3M active realtors. We hope you enjoy your retirement home and please keep in touch! Thanks for a wonderful review. /Goran and Lisa.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Temecula, CA.
We interviewed several realtors and we decided to hire Lisa and Goran due to their aggressive marketing. We listed it much above the comps in the neighborhood but very quickly we had offers and we accepted a full-price offer which closed within 1 week! Excellent marketing and communication. We strongly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home for absolute top dollar!

Jill and Mike. Your home on Calle Reva was really nice and showed so well. You would not believe how many agents and buyers that called and said we're priced $50K too high. Well, it only takes one buyer to get it sold. We're so excited we were able to bring in multiple offers and sell it for top dollar. I was even surprised! We set a new record in Rancho Highlands community!! Thanks for the great review and best of luck in OC. /Lisa and Goran.

Selling a home can be a very stressful process and finding the right listing agent to market your home and set the right asking price is monument. We did our research and took the time to interview a few agents before making a decision of whom to list our home with. Experience, marketing and a personal connection to your agent were very important to us as we go through this process. We were very impressed with the reviews we read online about Goran & Lisa Forss on various home selling websites. Their experience and state of the art marketing along with their portfolio of previous successes was exactly what we were looking for in an agent. Once we signed with Goran & Lisa they walked us through the process in detail and made us confident listing our house with them was the right decision for us. They listed our home on multiple websites and it was amazing to see our house listed on the top of all other homes in the area. We listed our home in Redhawk at $359,900 and with their marketing skills we have had over 10 offers in 3 days and all more than the asking price. Wow! Because of these marketing skills they reach a wide range of areas and most of our offers were from Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. We are overwhelmed with the responses and the quick sale of our home in less than 1 week, which I might add, sold well over the asking price. Goran & Lisa are dedicated & committed to communicating and keeping you updated every step of the way always making sure you are the driver of the train and offer their guidance as needed. We have nothing but praise for this husband and wife team and are confident you cant find this with any other agent in Temecula Valley. Thank You Goran & Lisa we are forever grateful.

Team Forss is #1 in our book.

Karen and Tom. You made it too easy for us... You had a spectacular home with everything a home buyer wants: Pool, Views, Upgrades, RV parking, NO HOA fees, Low Taxes, excellent schools and the home showed like a model. It was such a pleasure working with both of you. The hard part was to go through all the offers and pick the one with best terms and price. We're really pleased that we marketed directly to Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego as the strongest offers came from those areas. Thank you again for the opportunity and nice review. /Goran and Lisa.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Temecula, CA.
I had a great experience with Lisa and Goran. They always responded to each of my emails or calls promptly and kept me in touch with the selling process along the way. My home was previously listed at $749,000 with another Realtor and it was on the market for 406 days. I interviewed several Realtors and decided to hire Lisa and Goran Forss to sell my home. They listed it at $50,000 higher, at $799,000. I had an accepted offer within 24 hours! My home was prominently featured on all major real estate websites and they also approached their extensive existing client base. They have a unique technology with their come2temecula website where they can immediately tell who would be interested in the home. I would definitively recommend Lisa and Goran with their come2temecula systems to any seller who wants to sell their home for highest possible price.

You were so great to work with, Pauletta but why did you not give us any Zillow stars :-) haha. Your home showed really well and the views are simply amazing from your home. It reminds us so much of Tuscany, Italy. We received several calls from other neighbors once we listed your home as they noticed it was a different realtor sign. They all asked us how much we dropped the price. Imagine their surprise when I told them we RAISED the price $50,000 and it's already in escrow, after one day on the market! Two other sellers want to hire us to sell their homes now :-) Best of luck with your move and call us anytime if we can help you with anything. We're so happy for you being able to move closer to your daughter.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Murrieta, CA.
We were referred by our General Contractor to Goran and Lisa Forss to list our home for sale. We had an excellent experience. They were responsive and marketed our home extremely well where we had multiple offers right away and we ended up selling our home above asking price. Great communication and great team. They had a professional stager visit our home, at their expense, and she made a big difference in the way our home ended up being presented. Beautiful photos and virtual tours!! First class experience with this team. Highly recommend to anybody looking to SELL their home fast and for top dollar. We will definitely use them again in the future!

We are absolutely passionate about the business and we are looking forward to keep growing our business while striving for 100% client satisfaction.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Temecula, CA.
I enlisted TeamForss to help me find, rehab and sell another investment property. This is the No. One Team in Temecula for real estate. I have used them before with great success and have recently bought my next property thru them in south Temecula. TeamForss is assisting me with the rehab of the home, which should provide the basis for a terrific sale opportunity. They are extremely knowledgeable on the local real estate market and are very flexible to deal with. I am looking forward to closing another profitable deal. Goran and Lisa Forss (and their team) have my highest recommendation.

Demi, you and Jerry have been great to work with. It is a lot more difficult in this market to find great flip opportunities but we're determined to help. We're so happy you both keep coming back to us for more investment homes.

Sold a home in 2013.
My wife and I just completed the sale of our home using Goran and Lisa as our listing agents. I can't say enough about their professionalism, expertise, and their overall competence as real estate agents!

We did extensive research in our efforts to find an agent to list our home. We whittled the list of agents we were considering down to four and then met with representatives from each. When we met with Goran and Lisa, both my wife and I were not only impressed with their enthusiasm and past experience as well as their success as agents, but we were even more impressed with how they go about listing a home for sale.

Lisa and Goran had their work cut out for them when we selected them to represent us. Our home was more expensive than most of the homes they list, and in the preceding months prior to us listing with them, only a couple homes in our area had sold in our price range, so we knew it was going to be a difficult sale.

Although our home was in a separate county than their agency, Goran, who has an M.S. in computer science, assured us that they would list our home in multiple MLSs to give it maximum exposure. Knowing that many people search for homes using internet searches on listing sites such as Zillow, he assured us when individuals researched those sites, our home would appear near or at the top of the listing searches.

Goran and Lisa made the perfect team. Goran's job was to ensure maximum online exposure and Lisa handled all the agent responsibilities such as assisting us with staging, arranging a professional photographer, and coordinating with realtors who were showing the home, etc. The cost for the professional photographer and stager came out of their agent fees and were not separate. When we had questions, Lisa and Goran were always available to assist. They kept us informed of the process from beginning to end and provided us with priceless guidance throughout the sale of our home.

Exposure is everything when selling a home, and Goran ensured we got as many viewings as possible. Very rarely did a day go by that we didn't have someone view the house. On one weekend alone, we had six showings, three of which were families who lived out of state (Arizona, Washington, and Texas)! When we got offers on our home, Lisa and Goran helped us make the best possible decisions during the negotiation process. We ended up getting a cash offer which sped up the process dramatically. Since the buyer didn't need an appraisal on the home for a lender, we didn't have to worry about the appraisal coming in under the sale price.

All-in-all, my wife and I can't adequately express our satisfaction with our decision to use Goran and Lisa to list our home. Anyone considering a home purchase or sale would be well-served by considering them! Their experience and knowledge of the process is quite impressive! I am confident they are the best realtors we could have selected!

Kevin and Kristi: Wow. You mentioned you checked the background and looked up every major top performing agent in San Diego and Riverside Counties. We were very pleased to be selected to the final four and extremely honored to be the agent you decided to go with. You had one amazing home - one of the finest homes in Fallbrook. This was not a typical listing and it required every available marketing outlet with the best systems and people involved. We had your home listed EVERYWHERE with aerial photos, videos and posted at the top of all major websites and on multiple MLS systems. It was a fun project and we're so happy it worked out well. You two were some of the nicest and most pro-active sellers we have ever worked with. You took our staging company's advice and the professional photos turned out excellent. Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. Best of luck in Florida!!

As a Seller, picking your listing agent is an important decision. We've bought and sold homes across the country during our careers and have never been represented by anyone better than Lisa and Goran. They have the marketing expertise and talent to get you the best price on your house. They are very responsive and attentive to the seller and they have many listings going at the same time. EVERY Agent will WANT your listing, but NO ONE will treat you and market your house like Lisa and Goran!!!!

Larry and Kathy. You did excellent and you did exactly what we recommended regarding the preparations. Your home was amazingly nice and we loved the garden with all the trees and plants. You achieved absolutely top dollar and a new record in the neighborhood!! Zillow estimated the value (zestimate) to $400,000 and we sold it for $650,000! We are so excited for you and we thank you so much for such a nice review. We hope you will enjoy your new beach house in Long Beach. The photos look wonderful of your new home. Let us know when you want to sell it :-) We love this business. This is truly our passion! /Goran and Lisa

Showed home in 2013 in Temecula, CA.
Can you give 6 stars? I found Goran and Lisa, of all places, on Zillow! Thankfully they lived up to their reputation after we had a bad run with 2 other Realtors. lots of promises, no follow-through. These guys were completely forthright from the get-go, something that seems like a lost art in this business. We have needed a reality check like so many Buyers, and they did so professionally. We're still in process as a family trust issue is slowing down our purchase but I literally have their team on speed dial. Count on my for referrals Goran and Lisa, and looking forward to getting this purchase hammered out!
