We just closed escrow on our new home in Palos Verdes and cannot recommend George Fotion enough! Even the escrow officer said George is one of the best realtors he’s worked with. His extensive knowledge and ability to negotiate in a competitive market like Palos Verdes was priceless We have worked with many realtors on investments and other properties and finding this type of knowledgeable realtor is rare. Thank you George

I used George to buy a new house, and sell an old one. In both transactions, he displayed prompt and accurate response to every step to keep the process moving. Whether to nudge an escrow agent or find an electrician to fix things just right, George was a great resource

palos verdes real estate agent recommendattionGeorge is a very knowledgeable real estate agent for the Palos Verdes homes area. He has connections to many resources to help make the process smoother due to his experience in the industry. He provides market data and other tools that were not used by other agents which are very helpful such as: market trends and value metrics for Palos Verdes homes. George guided us through with his expertise and also added his brilliant sense of humor, which is well needed in this competitive market landscape.

If you own one of the Palos Verdes homes here on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and are considering selling or merely want real estate information, we endorse and recommend George Fotion of “Call Realty Best Palos Verdes Homes”. We hired him in 2016 to sell our Palos Verdes Estates home. When we met, he laid out a pricing strategy and marketing strategy that in reality, unfolded just like he said it would. In a field of hundreds and hundreds of real estate agents serving the Palos Verdes area, we couldn’t be more pleased.”

 

000blashawreviewGeorge did an amazing job selling our home. He projected a timeline for the sale of the property, and everything came together exactly as he predicted. George’s knowledge about achieving the best outcome gave us a great deal of confidence throughout the selling process. My husband and I could not be more pleased at the results we received. We highly recommend George to anyone needing a real estate expert. And he’s a really nice guy, too!

palos verdes real estate agent recommendationWe are more than pleased with the complete process of selling our home of 52 years, in Rancho Palos Verdes with George Fotion at the helm. From start to finish George listened to our requirements and made them happen. From our point of view, the sale was flawless, and smooth as glass. He had numerous good offers within a few days of listing, we chose our buyer, and every deadline was met. This man worked harder for us than we expected and went beyond anything we could have imagined. We recommend, George Fotion with complete and total confidence when you need any real estate tasks done on your Palos Verdes home.

 

000grace5starMy 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. Sincerely, Grace Hu

000regoWhen we got stuck in a remodel from hell situation we decided to just sell or home and not deal with the hassle. The remodel was already way over budget and a year over schedule causing much financial stress and pressure for my young family. George Fotion stepped up in this most difficult situation and listed our home in Lunada Bay, Palos Verdes Estates. He marketed and SOLD our home when it was demolished to the studs! There was only a shell of a house with beautiful new windows and approved plans from the Art Jury. George not only listed our property he SOLD it in less than 30 days. His knowledge of the market is second to none. He has the networks in place to take on challenging opportunities and execute! I cannot say enough great things about this man!

yelp 5 star reviewReview by Jennifer H: 8/20/2016 George has just helped our family sold our property ABOVE asking price in a slow season! Because of unexpected event happened our property went on market when the slow season in Palos Verdes area started. Two weeks before our property listed in MLS, I checked Zillow and found a nearby house was on the market for over 20 days and had reduced its asking price. So, I was worried that our original asking price wasn’t competitive in the current market. But, due to one of the family members is bound by probate court requirement, we had to stick to our original price. Somehow, with George’s marketing magic we got offers within a week after the property put on the market. Of course “magic” is just the word I use to describe how my family felt for the deal closed so fast and smooth. Behind the scenes are Geroge’s years of experience in the real estate market, up-to-date technical skill to quickly navigate current market situation, and hard working. If you are planning to put your property on the market, you should seriously consider have George represent you.

George has been our go to realtor for about 10 years now . He has helped our family buy and sell several properties during this time. He is the ultimate professional , and his knowledge of the market is outstanding. We highly recommend him to anyone interested in the real estate market

elisabeth w starsGeorge Fotion is dedicated. He helped us sell our home of 18 years and buy the home of our dreams. His experience and wisdom made both of our transactions run smoothly and without any delay. At every step he was professional, courteous, creative, honest, patient and savvy. His level of customer service was amazing. He is always ready to talk. Plus, his enthusiasm and gentle humor made the challenging moments bearable. In short, I would recommend him to anyone especially, if you want the true facts about the market and a realtor who will work tirelessly for you. I would recommend George to my own mother!

zillow rating recommend highlyMy siblings and I decided to sell our family home in Palos Verdes Estates.  First thing, find a realtor we all agree on, yikes! Turned out not to be a problem. We spoke to several agents. George had, by far, the best marketing strategy and overall knowledge of the market not to mention a very well thought out and informative presentation. So that, along with his honesty, enthusiasm and positive attitude, impressed us all and we quickly decided he was the one for the job. That was a very good decision on our part as it turned out. From beginning to close of escrow George worked really hard for us. He kept us informed throughout and answered our questions as they arose. For every offer he laid out the ups and downs and waited for our instruction. When we accepted an offer was when we discovered that George was a master negotiator. How lucky for us! Turns out you need that ability to secure the right deal. He not only had to negotiate with the buyer but with all of us as well. We all had our own ideas so he had to unite us which he did by presenting the facts for all of us to see and keeping us focused, not an easy task at times smile emoticon We received top dollar for the home and are all very happy. Thank you George for you hard work and dedication! We give George Fotion the highest of recommendations! ~Olsen Family

ivyr_logoWe are currently working with George Fotion on finding a new home.  We met George while he was showing an Open House we visited.  We immediately felt very comfortable with George – he is very warm, a good listener and easy to talk to.  He let us tour the home on our own, which was our preference; however, he was there to thoroughly answer all of our questions. Customer service and great communication skills are just a few of the qualities that makes George so easy to work with.  George is also extremely responsive.  He responds to our questions (texts/emails) in record time even while on vacation (which is not typically expected) and even when we let him know the answer to our question can wait.  George is also very tech ivyrreviewsavvy – (using a new program to us called e-sign) which saves so much time.  Again, when “time” can be extremely important,  whether it’s texting, emails, phone calls, etc. – you can always count on him.  We can honestly say, if you’re looking into buying or selling property in the South Bay area, you should give George Fotion a call.  Thanks George – we are looking forward to definitely find our “dream home” with you!

google 5 starsI would highly recommend George Fotion with Call Realty for your home real estate transaction needs. George recently represented my wife and I in the successful sale of our townhouse and is now assisting us in the purchase of a single family home. In representing us on the seller side, George did a wonderful job of marketing the property and getting the word out, first with a professional photo shoot and drone video flyover, then posting this information extensively on various RE web sites as well as the MLS. We believe George’s impressive marketing strategy and connections with the local realty community were the main reasons we received and accepted a competitive offer so soon after listing. The escrow process went smoothly and we closed the sale basically on time without any significant issues. On the buyer side, George has provided us with prompt, notifications as properties have been listed on the market, allowing us to quickly review the information and determine if the property met our needs. This is important in today’s “seller” market, where desirable properties receive quick attention and multiple offers. With George’s help in crafting and presenting a competitive offer, we are now we are now in the escrow process and anticipate a successful closing soon. Thank you George!!

zillow rating recommend highly06/13/2015 – fmcourey Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $2.325M.  George was my sellers representative for a sale of a home in a trust for which I serve as trustee. He worked with my attorney and accountant for the trust as well as the beneficiaries with honesty and expertise. I have never sold a home before and I had to act in the best interest of the trust and the beneficiaries. George walked me through the complicated process of the sale and through his marketing skills brought the best offer possible to the table and we closed quickly and far above my expectations regarding the final offer. I highly recommend George with enthusiasm for all of your real estate needs!

zillow trulia 5 starPeter Pettler reviewed George Fotion 06/15/2015  George Fotion of Call realty did an outstanding job. I am an attorney. The seller was the trustee of a trust. Such a sale is different than a standard sale of residential realty. George did all of his homework, did everything correctly, and involved me as necessary so that I could do my job properly. I was very impressed with his marketing strategy and organization in approaching the sale. I am sure that we received the highest possible price through his efforts.

 

zillow trulia 5 starChoider reviewed George Fotion 06/05/2015 Helped me sell a home
George is an amazing agent. He not only helped me sell my home, I bought a home from him as well. It was obvious from the start that George is very experienced and knowledgeable about the South Bay area.
First: George helped me buy a home. He provided ample information about the sellers to help me set my expectations and helped me construct an reasonable offer. He answered all my questions about the property and explained everything to the fullest. I couldn’t have been happier with my buying experience.
Second: I was so confident and happy with George’s expertise and service that I kept him as my selling agent of my home. He did a thorough market analysis, provided me with visibility into every step in his process, and helped me formulate a offer price. He brought in a professional photographer (at his cost) and literally transformed our house with the staging and pictures. Our house sold within 1 week and I’m 100% sure it was due to George’s efforts.
He stayed proactive throughout both processes and had right amount of “push” when needed. He still keeps in touch and I think of George as a resource that I can go to in the future if I ever need.
He definitely exceeded my expectations to the fullest and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

zillow rating recommend highlyGeorge exemplifies the full measure of professionalism. His thoughtful and masterful approach recently helped our family secure our dream home in Palos Verdes. His guidance, coaching and advice has truly made it an incredibly rewarding, enjoyable, and happy memory for us. He will always hold a special place in our hearts and in our home. Do yourself a favor and give him a call without hesitation.
zillow trulia 5 starCarole Maggio reviewed George Fotion 5/25/2015 Helped me sell a home. George was very pro active in representing my property. He called various agents to promote my condo and get them excited to show my ocean front condo. Once in escrow he made sure the selling agent and escrow company were on top of the terms in the contract so that there weren’t any issues in closing the escrow on time. He also is very fun to work with when selling can be a stressful time. Made me laugh thru a few offers.

George is what I would describe as a consummate professional. He really knows his local real estate market and has great knowledge of the entire real estate transaction. This expertise really comes into play when negotiating on behalf of his clients. If you are looking to buy/sell real estate in southern California, I would strongly recommend giving George a call if you are wanting the best terms with the least red tape. He loves going the extra mile to create a client for life. I always look forward to doing business with George!

zillow trulia 5 starGlen Tomkiewicz reviewed George Fotion 04/30/2015 Helped me sell a home  George not only sold our home but also helped bought our new home. George continuously updated us on our area market we were selling as well as where we wanted to buy. This info gave us the the confidence to move forward and make the best deals. George is has the market wired and is one of those guys that listens to your wants & needs. He is your “Go To Guy”.

 

palos verdes real estate recommendationsI have renovated and sold 43 properties over the last 10 years. This transaction was by far the absolute smoothest ever. George started out with an incredible amount of real estate knowledge and a superb execution of marketing (online and off) – but the real talent lies in his people skills. He understands how to talk to buyers and sellers to get the finest results as quickly as possible. His feedback is neutral (he is not thinking of himself) and extremely fair. His is unbelievably honest and generous too. Here are the results of my listing with him: 1. He met with me and gave me detailed information about the area, value and type of buyer that we could attract. 2. He advised me NOT TO SPEND A PENNY renovating the home for sale (this saved me $30,000+) 3. He marketed the listing “offline” for a week before officially listing it. 4. He contacted people that he knows and generated buzz. 5. By the time the he listed the property we got MULTIPLE OFFERS IMMEDIATELY. 6. We had it off in the market in less than two weeks with a $1,150,000 sales price (listed for $1,200,000) 7. Both the buyer and seller were left with feeling great about this transaction. The house was sold in under 5 weeks!!!! He advises, responds quickly and delivers. He is truly an amazing real estate agent.

George provided guidance and expertise all along the way.. His in depth marketing analysis and straight talk were very helpful in determining the list price for our property. His follow up was prompt and the professionals he brought along in the process ( photographer, home inspector) etc were of the highest quality. I would recommend George’s services to anybody with real estate needs in the South Bay of Los Angeles.

I don’t know how many properties I‘ve bought and sold, but everything about this sale was excellent. From his market analysis which was right-on to the multiple offers and a super smooth escrow, this deal was one of the best! I was in residential and commercial real estate for many years, but I even learned a new twist on how to always be the highest bidder. Apparently old Dougs can learn new tricks!

George Fotion is the consummate real estate pro. He is knowledgeable, experienced, organized, detail-oriented and a gentle, but firm, advocate for his clients. He is also a skilled “explainer” and guides the client through what can be a complex, confusing and illogical process. But best of all, he is a really nice person and fun to work with. Whether buyer or seller, if you choose George to represent your interests, you will be working with a real estate professional who is second to none.

palos verdes real estate recommendations

zillow5starGeorge shows a higher level of professionalism and respect for his field and the parties involved in it than I have encountered in all of my many many experiences with many many other real estate “professionals” over multiple transactions in multiple states. George has an uncommon expertise in knowing not only the geographic area of his focus, but most of the people in it, their histories, and what will be happening before others have a clue, as well of course as the macro trends, and all the ins and outs and intricacies involved in these transactions.

From the outset George was extremely responsive, while not once overstepping any boundaries. He provided detailed FACTUAL information relevant to the decision making process, as well as expertise that only years of learning and experience can provide. It was a true pleasure working with George as he actually both cared to help us find the home we sought and WORKED to make sure we got what we were after.

We would most strongly recommend George, and we have never said that about any other agent anywhere. Also, and the btw – we met him via responding to a listing he had. I told him I wanted to be the very first to see it. He made it happen. We’re not socially connected nor related. We were outbid by an all cash buyer on that property the same day it was shown, but George kept us informed, and looked for any and every possible alternative until we landed the one we wanted. Best of the best. Highly likely to recommend. 08/27/2014 – patrickdurocher4 Bought a home in 2014. 08/27/2014 – patrickdurocher4

 

zillow5star“George was recommended to us when we needed to sell our home in the Palos Verdes area. From our first interview, he put us at ease and we could see ourselves listing the house with him. George then proceeded to show the depth of knowledge and experience, as he walked us through the process step by step. He was prepared; he knew our house, our neighborhood, and the market. He listened to our needs and then gave his opinions based on our needs. He is a total professional who communicates easily and he LISTENS. I can not stress that part enough; he listens. Then once he had the listing he actually walked the walk. He kept us informed, he calmed our fears, he did absolutely everything he said he would and he did it with great presence of mind, humor and patience. The sold in time and within our target window. Like I said, he’s a pro. This is what he does for a living and does it well. I can not recommend him highly enough –

“George Fotion never tires and will keep on digging until he sells your property or finds the house you want to buy. He is very pleasant and easy to communicate with. He is very professional, diligent, patient and generous with his time. His extensive knowledge of the real estate market and financing options, based on his 30 years of experience in the business, are real assets to his clients. In addition, his insight into negotiating strategies and contract terms based on current market conditions is very valuable to buyers and sellers alike. George is vey analytical and keeps up to date with current internet and social media applications to the real estate market to reach a wider range of potential buyers and sellers. He has an excellent website where he publishes several reports and a newsletter on current market status and also provides links to several useful resources for market research. George is forthcoming on a timely basis with all the information, data and advice you need to make a sound decision. I highly recommend his services. Essam Diebes 3/19/2014”

George outlined his approach to the selling process in a one hour meeting. It became clear that he full understood the need for a web based approach and he showed several examples of how he had successfully used that previously. We settled on the asking price quickly based on the existing market along with thoughts on the near term future potential. George coordinated all the future activities including the photographer. the pest control and home inspectors and the broker’s open house which was well attended (>100 realtors). Several brokers brought their clients with them to the broker’s open house and one of them made a full price offer that day which we accepted. The escrow was also seamless even though the buyer’s were from out of the country and both the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays intervened. We have bought and sold 10+ houses and this was by far the easiest process in large part due to George and to a lesser extent the electronic signing process.

 

“We have worked with George over the course of several months, and have found him to be a phenomenal help. We have looked at dozens of properties together, and my spouse and I choose to be “picky” about this big decision. George has never run out of patience, and has never tried to talk us into a home. He’s easy to talk to, listens to our feedback, and tries to work with it, but also doesn’t let it limit him – if he sees something that he finds interesting, he tells us about it and tells us why he thinks we should take a look. He is a bounty of information about the market and the area we are looking. However, in addition to the statistics, he tries very hard to make sure we see the context behind them. He’s a help, pure and simple, and truly sees helping his clients as his business. I would highly recommend George to anyone who wants a real estate agent who’s primary concern is helping them make the right decision.See More” Marilyn Kalty

I have known George for decades and strongly believe in his advice and his work ethic. My family has worked with George on many real estate issues and found him to not only be pro-active in all that he undertakes but also works with the highest integrity. He has done real estate sales, purchases and rentals for us with an engaging manner towards the buyer and the seller. HE IS THE BEST!!!

zillow5starReview by Lisa Levine February 2014

George was recommended to me 16 years ago when we bought our home in PVE. We found his familiarity and knowledge of the area to be quite impressive and his work ethic proved to be unsurpassed. His insight, wisdom and expertise during a complex transaction with multiple offers was the catalyst for us being the winning bid. George is dedicated to providing his clients with the best possible service. His quick email responses, positive attitude and the fact that he delivers what he promises is the reason we have used George multiple times. We highly recommend his services!

Working with George was an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor. George is very knowledgeable, responsive and is not afraid to give you his genuine opinion. I can’t say enough how pleasantly surprised I was with our experience. It was George’s experienced that facilitated us being able to quickly move on a property we liked which was instrumental in us signing a purchase contract.

George is the most expert real estate agent I have ever worked with. His mastery of the South Bay is surreal. George is completely fluent in the low-level contractual details of buying and selling which makes him an excellent advisor. He is super tech savvy which I am convinced help get us top dollar on a home sale. Most importantly, George is an absolute gentleman and wonderful to work with!

imageAmir Desai Chief Technology Officer at Xerox Services I simply cannot recommend George’s services highly enough. He achieved amazing results with respect to the sale of our home in South Redondo without ever formally listing our house. Utilizing various social networks, online real estate sites and other high-tech means, George was able to generate substantial interest in our house, resulting in multiple offers and a sale price well above the appraised value of our home and one of the highest prices for the sale of a home on the Avenues in South Redondo (other than on the Esplanade) in the past several years. In a nutshell, George provides truly exceptional service with the type of personal attention and friendship rarely encountered in any service industry. If you are looking to sell your home in the South Bay, you should definitely speak to George.

zillow5starGeorge Fotion was absolutely fabulous as our realtor! We couldn’t be more pleased and would most highly recommend George to anyone. He was masterful at finding us a home that met our requirements, in a very tough seller’s market, at the price we could afford. Added complexity in our case was that we were relocating from the East Coast and had to sell a home on that end while buying our new home in CA. George navigated that dynamic with ease. George’s recommendations were always on the mark; he was available 7 days a week at all hours of the day and night by text, phone, email, etc.; and he knew and explained the CA real estate process perfectly. Most of all, we truly trusted George and knew that he always had our interests as buyer first and foremost in mind. Very very very well done and most highly recommended.

Executive Director at Marine Exchange of Southern California George did an absolutely fabulous job helping us buy our home in Rancho Palos Verdes and we give him the highest recommendation. Our transaction was particuarly complicated because we were relocating from MD to CA, I was in CA and my wife was in MD, and we were selling our home in MD at the same time we were buying in CA. George handled this dynamic perfectly. I checked great results, expert, and high integrity as George’s top 3 attributes because they most directly relate to this transaction, but George TRUELY exemplifies all 7. He was available at all hours of the day and night, 7 days a week, by text, phone, and e-mail, which directly contributed to our being able to take advantage of new information and emerging opportunities. His personality made it easy to discuss creative solutions and work through challenges… we always knew that George was working for us and had our needs and desires foremost in mind as he developed alternatives, made recommendations, and executed decisions. We most highly recommend George to anyone, and in particular someone with a particularly complex transation. WELL DONE GEORGE… we love our new home… THANK YOU!less

Summary of their experience

Moving across country is an epic task! That being said, those logistical difficulties would only be exacerbated with the wrong agent. George redefined the term “customer service”! His in depth knowledge of the area aided us in making a confident and well informed decision and he stepped up to the plate in our absence to cover every detail from offer to close and beyond. If you’re considering moving to the area. I would highly recommend George Fotion as the only agent you’ll need to contact.

Summary of their experience Over the past 7 years George Fotion has helped us buy 3 homes and sold 2 of our homes. If you are looking for a realtor in the South Bay, he’s the one you need. His knowledge of the area he serves and of his profession is very impressive, even fun to listen to. He is there for you almost anytime of day it seems and is very responsive to calls, emails and texts. There were many times late at night I’d think of almost absurd questions and I couldn’t help myself, I’d be texting or emailing George about them and he always came through so quickly. He’s very proud of what he does and the area he serves and it shows. He’s a great family man and he’s constantly reminding us he is here to serve. He treats us like we are family. We wouldn’t choose any other realtor as long as George is serving!

Summary of their experience We had the pleasure of working with George about 10 years ago when he sold a property for us, and we were extremely pleased and impressed with him. That is why we decided to call him first when we decided to buy a home now. He is very knowledgeable of the market conditions, neighborhoods, negotiating skills and has excellent open communication. I would (and have) recommended him to friends who are, or will be, in the market to buy or sell.

We interviewed three highly recommended realtors before selecting George Fotion to sell our property in ‘Lower Lunada’ in Palos Verdes Estates. He had just the right combination of skill, knowledge, local understanding of property, laid-back, and tenacious. His insights in prepping our property were invaluable, and it was a pleasure having him as our representative. His photographer did an amazing job of showing our home to its best potential, truly amazing skills. We are so happy to have selected George, and would give him our highest recommendation.

George had come highly recommended to us by a friend and he really came through for us. We weren’t easy as we were living in NY and had decided to move to PV but weren’t sure when that would happen so George patiently showed us homes and guided us for 3 years! He helped us rent a home while the one we purchased underwent construction. He always had the best attitude and happiest demeanor and that made looking for a house extremely pleasant and surprisingly easy. He was incredibly helpful with providing my husband with valuations and statistics as well as letting us know about the various neighborhoods, schools and even micro-climates. Super, easy going and down to earth. Now he’s helping my parents find a home so they can move out to California as well. He’s the best!! Couldn’t ask for a better agent than George. Jennifer Dworman

As it turns out, we also asked a family friend who lives in the area for a referral and, much to our surprise, George Fotion was also their recommendation. We went ahead and scheduled an on-site consult, and we affirmatively knew that we need not look further for a real estate agent. George is a consummate professional! His honesty, tenacity, and prompt responsiveness to all of our needs throughout the real estate transaction from that first hand shake through the close of escrow were something that you do not often experience in today’s self-centered society. George’s level of service is unparalleled. He is always available to answer questions and knows the market so well that it seemed, in our case, that he could predict scenarios before they even happened.

I am a long term resident of the southbay and have worked with George on a few deals. I am in real estate myself and usually work with very aggressive commercial brokers. George is just the right amount of balance between aggressive-ness and nurture. He does not take no for an answer and will break down the hurdles needed to get the deal done, often sacrificing his own personal time and money to help things move forward(he even answered me call when he was on an Easter vacation). He is very knowledgeable on the area, often calling on local residents for off-market deals when i am interested in a house. In addition, he will inform me when he believes my offer was over what the market demanded. There are a great deal of real estate agents in the southbay, however, most are unable to close the deal and get things done. A lot promise more than they can deliver and then you are left sitting in limbo. George, was able to close a short sale deal for me with over 20 offers, where I was not the highest offer. If that is not masterful, i don’t know what is. I would say when you choose an agent, make sure the following: 1. you have a good connection because you may hit conflict and you want to work with someone you are comfortable with and a guy who works forward toward a solution, not just asks you to sacrifice 2. ask the agent for their closing numbers if you are listing/buying your property 3. if you are looking in a specific area, make sure the agent is well connected because he will be able to hear the news before it is public. I would say George accomplished all three for me wonderfully. He has helped me find houses as low as $500k (in PV!!!!) and as high as $6m. He delivers what he promises and will even help you understand your investment return if you are buying an investment property. I would highly recommend George and am currently working on finding another house with him.

The home was in the 1.5MM range in the Palos Verdes area and offered the right client a dream home opportunity but I didn’t feel it would be an easy home to sell. George came in and short order was exceeding my expectations with masterful usage of the Internet and continual updates on the progress of the home. Not only did he find the right buyer but it he did so with a level of honesty and integrity rarely experienced anymore, a hard working guy. I highly recommend George.”
Gary Stokoe hired George as a Real Estate Broker in 2010

“George is absolutely the finest and most diligent real estate broker in the South Bay. He most recently sold an extremely difficult home for us in the $3MM range and achieved incredible results. Highly recommend George for any high end property in the Beach Cities or the PV Penninsula – no way you will be disappointed.” October 31, 2010

Christie Reyes,
hired George as a Real Estate Agent in 2010

“I listed my home in 2008 with a realtor other than George and it never sold. They told me the price I wanted to hear and it never moved. When I began talking with George about listing it in 2009 I was struct by how “frank” he was about pricing. George didn’t inflate the price or tell me what I wanted to hear. He told me what I NEEDED to hear. George priced my house to sell and we got over 5 offers in 6 days. I appreciated George’s candor and the fact that his effort was second to none. He is extremely customer focused and thinks things through. He is very realistic and does not over-promise. George is extrememly good at what he does.” March 19, 2010

Linda Koenekamp,
hired George as a Realtor in 2005

“When we were looking for a realtor in the Rancho Palos Verdes, CA area, we first started with a “Google” search. Upon finding George’s web site, we were thoroughly impressed with the comprehensive level of detail, credentials, research and the overall professionalism of the information available on his web site. As it turns out, we also asked a family friend who lives in the area for a referral and, much to our surprise, George Fotion was also their recommendation. We went ahead and scheduled an on-site consult, and we affirmatively knew that we need not look further for a real estate agent. George is a consummate professional! His honesty, tenacity, and prompt responsiveness to all of our needs throughout the real estate transaction from that first hand shake through the close of escrow were something that you do not often experience in today’s self-centered society. George’s level of service is unparalleled. He is always available to answer questions and knows the market so well that it seemed, in our case, that he could predict scenarios before they even happened. We are still astounded at the ease of the transaction considering we did not have to travel anywhere to sign documents as everything was available for review and signature electronically. We cannot recommend George Fotion highly enough! Thank you, George!” May 19, 2009

George helped us find our first house. He is very knowledgeable about the local market. We were very impressed by his negotiation skills. It took us a while to find the house. During the process, he was always very patient, never pushing. He always responded to our request and inquiries right away by phone, email, or text messages. Even after buying the house, we sometimes still contact him when we have house-related questions. He’s always there to help. Thank you, George, for the great service!
