My family had an old house in Rancho Palos Verdes. It was owned by four family members. We lived far away from each other and one lived overseas. We decided to sell the house in the summer of 2016. In our meeting with George Fotion, he listened attentively to our family situation, understood our needs, then he gave us information how we could start the process. George is the agent who has all aspects knowledge of real estate. Knowing what buyers are looking for, he suggested cost-effective ways of remodeling. As the result, the house was attractive to buyers but didn’t cost us a fortune to remodel. We all lived far from the property. He took care of the house so that it stayed in a good condition. Setting a realistic sale price is critical for a seller; George’s market analysis and suggested pricing range were very important to make sure we would not lose money but also to make sure we could get the highest market price possible. With his marketing expertise, he managed to have the house under a contract in four days. He was good at negotiating and the house sold higher than its list price. Getting the tremendous amount of paperwork done on time for escrow can be stressful. Because owned by four owners, the complexity of this transaction was far beyond most residential real estate transactions. George guided us through the entire escrow process step by step. He was very organized and detail oriented in dealing with paperwork, coordinated with the escrow office resulting in closing the escrow in two weeks. George is easy to contact, always prompt at returning our calls/ emails/ text or answering questions. He is resourceful on real estate related issues, such as contractors, legal, accounting, etc. It was a great experience to have Mr. George Fotion as our agent. His professional knowledge and personalized service made the entire selling process smooth and worry-free. I will recommend Mr. George Fotion to anyone who wants to buy/sell houses in southwest ocean side of Los Angeles area. My words are not just enough to describe his excellent service.
