What My Clients Say

Wendy and Michael Filler

Seller
‟Dear Century 21, My husband and I would like to let you know how extremely pleased we were to work once again with Robin and Eric during the sale of our Quail Hill home. We have now had the pleasure of working with them three times since June 2001, and have been completely satisfied with the exceptional service we received. Their diligence with ha ving weekend open houses on a regular basis was key in the sale of our home and they ended up bringing in the buyer themselves. Their experience was invaluable in working with the escrow and title companies in order for us to close on times, as we had purchased a new home and the timing and wiring of funds was critical. Robin and Eric work well as a team. They are good listeners and were very willing to incorporate requests regarding the sale. They are always available and reachable by phone when you need to speak with them. We recommend them highly -- you won't be disappointed. Very truly yours” Read More ▾

‟Robin and Eric, Thanks you, thank you. You two did a great job marketing my wife's rental property in Princeton Townhomes in Irvine. Since it was occupied by a tenant with two dogs, showing the property took a lot of extra time and effort. Presentation is everything, and you did a great job presenting the property in a great light on the internet. I strongly recommend you both as Realtors for the client who wants their property SOLD” 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 ▾

‟To Whom It May Concern: Selling a home in today's economic and financial times, the worse seen since the Great Depression, with inventory levels at historical highs, and the highest record of foreclosures and job losses how could anyone achieve success in selling their home in today's times. The old cliché that when "The going gets tough...the to ugh get going" clearly rings true when it comes to my brokers who sold my home of recent and that is the Eric and Robin Fenchel Team at Century 21. Given these historical times where owning real estate has transformed being the "American" dream to now being the "American" nightmare it takes "proven" professionals that not just understand the market but "tackle" the market each and everyday. It takes a professional that doesn't just list a home and "hopes for the best", but rather develops strategy to sell your home and one that understands the daily fluctuations to make critical adjustments to successfully market and sell a home in today's market - That is what you get with Eric and Robin. As Ronald Reagan once said, "Part of being revolutionary is knowing that you don't have to acquiesce to the tired, old ideas of the past..." And with Eric and Robin they too do not acquiesce to the ideas of the past or the tired ideas, but rather call and say, "Hey this idea is not working, things have changed, we too need to change our strategy..." This is the difference with the Fenchel Team. Lets not wait for the Buyer to come to us, but rather lets go find the "right" buyer for you... And, that's exactly what this Team did for me. As we closed escrow AT FULL PRICE OF ASKING and the transaction went as smooth as glass I cannot recommend more highly that when it comes to picking the right broker for your needs you need to ask the question who is the best broker for today's times. For me, and in the future, that is the Fenchel Team!!” 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 ▾

‟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 ▾

‟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 ▾
