‟We have known Eric and Robin Fenchel for 6 years and they have assisted us with purchasing a home (2009) and selling a home (2015). Eric and Robin were able to negotiate a deal that saved us a ton of money. They know the market, are always available if you need them and at the same time, a lot of fun to work with! We wouldn't even think of doing a … real estate transaction without them. Petros and Shushan Melkonya” Read More ▾
‟It is always a fun process to buy a new home and usually a stressful experience to sell your home. Eric and Robin changed the home selling experience for me. I have sold 7 homes in my life and this is the easiest transactions that I have experienced. Despite being 2000 miles away most of the time, they did exactly what they said they could do, whic … h was to market and sell my home. Their communication updates throughout the listing period was timely, their advice on market values and activity was exceptional and their negotiation strategy was clear and dead on through the entire process with the buyer. I take my hat off to them, if I had one:-” Read More ▾
‟We were very anxious about the process of selling our house, and even more anxious about the prospect of finding a new one that fit all our criteria in a price range and location we could be happy with over the long term. But Robin and Eric came through for us and made an inherently stressful process as stress-free as possible. From doing an initi … al walk-through where Robin gave us great ideas about how to declutter and stage our home before listing it, to providing a well thought-out pricing and marketing strategy that included professional photos and an online home tour, then sitting for multiple open houses, they provided stellar service. We felt they gave our town home the same amount of attention and effort they would to one of their $1 million+ listings. And at the end of the day, after helping us navigate through several low-ball offers, they found us a solid buyer willing to pay a price we could be satisfied with. They are definitely the go-to experts for real estate in the University Town Center area. Eric seemed to have every sale for the past 10 years committed to memory, which was a little scary... and very helpful! Mean time, they helped us narrow down options for our new house, were patient in showing us many properties, and spent even more time without us previewing houses and weeding out those that wouldn't be a good fit. They understood what we were looking for in a new house and neighborhood, then helped us find it, and gave us the tools to make a successful offer. We are extremely happy in our new home and grateful that Robin and Eric were there to lead us through the process” Read More ▾
‟I definitely got more for my property by using Robin and Eric as my realtor's. The other one I was planning to use wanted me to list for a lower price, and we ended up getting $10k more than that price with a good buyer and terms that worked out well for us. Their marketing and presentation skills were excellent and the whole transaction went smoot … hly and without any problems. We are very happy that we chose them to sell our home” Read More ▾
‟I have dealt with them for many years. They are efficient and always on top of things. They respond well. They keep track of everyone who visit the sites or goes to the property. I highly recommend them.”
‟My property was the most valuable thing that I owned and it was of the utmost importance to find an agent whom I could trust. I selected a real estate agent team who would understand what I needed and could navigate the system for me - and that was Eric and Robin Fenchel. I didn’t feel the need to make inquiries on my agents before I signed with th … em. I didn’t feel the need to ask friends for referrals. I choose my agents based on our ability to get along, I understood what they were saying to me, and they were very knowledgeable about homes and the neighborhood in the community where I was selling my home. My agents explained to me the market place and the market conditions. I didn’t feel that my agents were trying to extract the most substantial commission possible. My agents helped arrange my house inspection and conduct a study of the property's value. My agents disclosed all the material facts of all transactions. My agents worked with my time schedule. Eric and Robin Fenchel are bright, professional, trained and they work in the business full-time. Eric and Robin Fenchel would be considered by me - lifetime business partners” Read More ▾
‟Dear Robin and Eric, Thank you is not nearly enough to say for your kindness, professionalism and enormous assistance with the sale of my Columbia Square townhouse in University Town Center. I have always felt that when selling a property it is best to work with an area specialist whenever possible. I knew of you two because of the wealth of ad … vertising I had seen of yours, which I believe is what sells properties. I went to your website and sent a brief message, saying I was interested in listing my property. Eric called me in under a minute; I was astounded and impressed. We met the next day at my townhouse. I have to admit it was in terrible shape. College students (including my own children) had been living there for years, and it showed. As you remember, I told you I was feeling overwhelmed and really did not know where to begin. Eric jumped on the phone and within a few minutes I had appointments set up for estimates on painting, new flooring and carpet cleaning. You both kindly listened to my story. From that moment on things seemed to fall into place. I heard from you daily, always keeping me in the loop. I can not think of one thing that I could have asked for that you did not deliver--without my needing to ask. I was astounded at your knowledge of the area and every real estate transaction that had ever taken place in University Town Center. You brought in a photographer who did beautiful still photography as well as a virtual tour. Robin, you sat many open houses and showed it more times that I can count. Within a month we had multiple offers, and closed in two. I think I got the best price possible even in a volatile market. I had such a wonderful and positive experience working with you; you two are the perfect compliment to each other, two fabulous agents for the price of one! The whole experience could not have been better. Not only was it a positive business experience, but I also feel I have made two wonderful friends. Thank you again for everything. Sincerely yours, Lorrie Campbel” Read More ▾
‟Robin and Eric have a deep and detailed knowledge of the real estate marketplace in Orange County. I have worked with Robin and Eric on multiple occasions to buy and sell properties and couldn't have been happier with the outcomes on all of the transactions. They worked hard to sell our properties and marketed the properties well getting us top dol … lar. They helped us to find and secure another property that we wouldn't have found without them. Their guidance and negotiating skills were invaluable during our transactions. If you want a real estate team that works hard for you and has the experience to back them up then they are definitely the right team” Read More ▾
‟Dear Century 21 My husband and I would like to let you know how please we were with Robin and Eric during the sale of our home. We have had the pleasure of working with Robin and Eric twice within the past three years, and have been completely satisfied with the service we received. They were able to sell both of our properties at the highest pric … e ever paid for our particular models. Robin and Eric work well as a team. They are good listeners and were very willing to incorporate our requests regarding the sale of our home. They were always available when we needed to speak with them--and they always returned our calls the same day, usually within an hour or less. They were very helpful too in providing contacts for home repair work that needed to be done prior to the sale. They gave us names of a painter and a flooring company which have used on several occasions. They were honest and thorough in pointing out any work that needed to be done prior to placing our house on the market to ensure a speedy sale. Robin and Eric have knowledge and experience working in their favor. They have been in the business for a long time. Their experience was invaluable when it came time to analyze the various offers we received, determining which offer was the most solid. I don't think any other agents know the University Town Center area as well as they do. We strongly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home. You won't be disappointed! Very truly yours” Read More ▾
‟Robin and Eric did an amazing job representing me as the seller. They were the first people I contacted when I decided to sell my town home in Irvine for two reasons: 1 - they are the 'go to' people for University Town Center, and 2 - they represented the seller when I bought my house in 2006. They really know the market and what it takes to sell! … Their recommendations were right on target regarding what needed to upgraded, changed, not touched, etc. Because I was leaving town, I (obnoxiously) demanded that we close by the end of June at the best price possible. Well - DONE AND DONE - as they say!!! Eric is unbelievable at negotiations and process knowledge. Both were gracious as I attempted to micromanage the entire process (my bad :)). If you are thinking of selling your home, you MUST go with Robin and Eric. I've never used them on the buy side, but I would think with their extensive knowledge and negotiation skills, they would be formidable!” Read More ▾
