    My Client Testimonials

    "We were sellers in the middle of the COVID Pandemic while the economy was so volatile! Our anxiety was off the roof but Rene helped us take a rather smooth path to selling our property. We felt we were treated like family with his honest-to-goodness advice. He was always available and was a call and text away all the time. Excellence is an understatement!" Peter & Antonette Jalbuena
    "We started our journey to home ownership over a year and a half ago armed with only basic knowledge in the real estate process. After scouring the web for a real estate agent in our area with the best reviews (as one does), we found Rene Fuentes. We had a lot to learn, and Rene was there for us every step of the way. During our initial meeting and going into escrow, he walked us through all the steps that we should expect in great detail. He was always available to answer any and every question we had and trust me there were a lot. Rene is straightforward and genuine, and we really appreciated that. If you're looking for someone that is patient, kind, and determined to find you your future home, you'll find that with Rene." Dennis & Desiree Wu
    "Part 1: As a buyer from start to finish my wife and I were completely impressed with Renee. His enthusiasm, professionalism and work ethic were among the many traits that made us trust that he had our best interests at heart. He never pressured us, but informed us of what we needed depending on the desired outcome. He was always available above and beyond what we expected him to be, whenever we needed help. He made us feel at ease with the whole home buying process. We were totally blown away by his level of commitment. It was a pleasure working with Renee. We highly recommend him and would definitely work with him again. Part 2: As a seller: Bought low and sold high with a great realtor Renee is an excellent realtor and you can count on him to be professional and honest at all times. He is always available at the most crucial times and gets things done in a timely manner. He found us a great house 3 years ago that we loved living in and only sold to move for new work opportunities. He gave us expert advice when it came to selling our house, found the ideal buyer and helped us sell quickly and make a substantial profit on our investment. On top of all of this, Renee is a great guy and has an amazing family. We are so happy to have had his help with the whole process and wouldn’t use anyone else in the future." Patrick & Karoly Spring
    "Rene Fuentes did an excellent job for me. I was looking for a house and saw some of his properties listed online. He conveniently offered open houses and as soon as I met him he seemed like a great listener, trustworthy and very much on the ball. There was no hard sell and he is busy with so many properties but always gets back to you. I wanted the first house he showed me and he worked closely with me over a two week period to help me get it with terms that worked out for both the owner and me. When I signed the lease and met his whole office I really felt that I had upgraded not only to a better home but I was impressed with the whole agency and the after care- so far so good. I can see why Rene is successful. Sorry to sound cliche but he is a real "people person" and I would think that everyone can feel comfortable with him." Sally Mullins
    "Rene came to us through a co-workers recommendation to which he sold a property to. From the very start Rene was always available to answer all my numerous questions and scenarios. He has a very calming nature that helped us through the process of both selling our condo and purchasing a new home. His experience in the SFV helped us navigate through the neighborhood pockets to see what our $ could get us and we were able to see the differences between the homes in one area vs. another area. He was extremely responsive to all our requests and flexible in making our meeting times work for our busy work schedules, which was a huge help. So glad we got to have Rene as our Realtor and we look forward to using him again when the time calls." Eric Foltz
    "I met Rene through a friend's referral and I was impressed from the first day. He showed us a few houses that we'd been looking at and even suggested a few that we had missed. After patiently meeting with us 4 or 5 times, we found the house we wanted and Rene walked us through the entire process step by step. He gave us his attention at all times and never seemed to be rushing anywhere. Even when there was a hiccup in the loan approval process, Rene had suggestions on how to fix the issues at hand which ultimately worked without incurring costly late penalties. I've already recommended Rene to 2 of my close friends and would do so for anyone else who is in the market for a home or lease." Haim & Sharon Zafrani Address: 5248 Calderon Rd Woodland Hills CA 91364
    "As a co-executor of our Mom's estate, I decided to read the reviews on Zillow in order to find a broker to sell her home. Having read over a number of broker reviews, I was impressed with one in particular, that of Rene Fuentes. After meeting Rene the first time, I had no doubt that he would do an excellent job in a very professional manner. He was very ethical, knowledgeable, and confident, and took into account our concerns and expectations for the sale of the home. During the next few weeks he held two open houses on two separate weekend, and we had two full price offers within about 3 weeks time. We sold the house and Rene did a fantastic job during the escrow process, stayed in constant communication with my sister and I, and was able to work with the buyers broker to complete the sale in record time! I would highly recommend Rene Fuentes to family, friends, and anyone who is planning on selling their home. I am very grateful we found him on Zillow." Robert Friel (Seller) Address: 19549 Bassett St Reseda CA 91335
    "Rene was very professional and worked tirelessly to sell our home in a challenging market, and was able to secure a full price buyer for us.

    "We would like to express my genuine appreciation to Rene Fuentes for the excellent manner in which he handled the entire process of purchasing our house. Rene was courteous, efficient and diligent in helping us find the right property for our family. He was always receptive and fast to respond to our questions and concerns about the property. His cheerful manner and friendly approach made it easy to deal with him. Rene has exceeded all our expectations and we are certain, we will use his expertness again in the future." Eduardo Lemus (Buyer) Address: 2714 E 4th St Boyle Heights CA 90033
    "I recently relocated from South Florida to Woodland Hills. I was fortunate to have local family who helped me shop for a home rental. Rene and his team followed up on all matters, negotiated rental terms/conditions on my behalf, took the time to explain everything (even if he was out on another appt), and facilitated a process that did not require me to step foot into Southern California until the day of my final walk-through and move in. He is patient, kind, and most importantly, knows the real estate market in the valley. It was a great experience working with him, and I look forward to it again should the need arise" Charles Rosado (Tenant) Address: 22942 Leadwell St West Hills CA 91307
    "I am a real estate broker and a real estate appraiser. I hired Rene to represent me as my real estate agent to sell my home because of his knowledge and experience of knowing the ins and outs of the real estate business . He did an outstanding job in keeping me informed on a daily basis of the progress and negotiations taking place, especially during the opening and closing of escrow. I am extremely pleased on how he handled my escrow and especially the price I received for the sale of my home. If you are looking for a real estate agent that knows the real estate business and can get the job done to your satisfaction, I would highly recommend Rene" RICHARD JANISCH (Seller) Address: 6629 Mammoth Ave Valley Glen Ca 91405
    "Did a great job selling my condo. I moved out of town during the time my home was for sale, Rene always kept me in the loop as to what was happening with my CA home. Should I need real estate services again in CA, Rene's my go to guy! Outstandind in every facet of the business." Linda Colquette (Seller) Address: 8435 Burnet Ave #407 North Hills CA 91343
    "While deployed to Afghanistan Rene help me find the perfect home for me to return to after my 15 month deployment. Rene took the time to understand what I was looking for and was prepared for me when I returned back to the US. I was able to find a home within the first two weeks of my return" CPT Eric Jackson Address: 27277 Blue Spruce Pl Valencia CA 91354
    From day one to closing date, Rene was on top of every single detail of the propriety sale. I'd definitely recommended his services to friends and for further personal real estate matters." Eduardo & Andrea Lemus Address: 12563 Byron Ave Granada Hills CA 91344
    "Rene Fuentes sold my home for me. I was at first, very concerned about the entire process having never sold a home before, but I wanted to work with someone who I thought would know what they were doing in this unusual market place...Rene was FLAWLESS!! His support team made everything run smoothly and efficiently. He kept me updated every step of the way and if I had a question, he returned all my calls in short-time. He is a profession, knowledgeable, and caring person. He made the entire process simple and stress free for me. I cannot fully express my gratitude to him and his team of experts, except to say, I would always choose Rene for all my real estate needs, (be it a home rental or sales). He is the right man for the job." Eleanor De Silva
    "We just finished buying our first investment property with Rene. We are not first time buyers and based on our prior experiences I can tell you that this time we couldn't have chosen a better agent. He did all the hand-holding that any buyer can possibly dream of, was always available for us, answered all of our questions and showed a knowledge a sense of responsibility not often seen. The home buying experience is one of intense stress for all of us that are not in the business, however thanks to Rene we were able to buy our property and the transaction went as smoothly as it can possible go. We have already recommended Rene Fuentes to our family and friends. Rene is a professional that we do not feel embarrassed to recommend since you can not go wrong by having him on your side." Andrew & Cecilia Mellon Address: 13126 Bromont Ave #27 Sylmar CA 91342
    "Rene, you are the best agent I ever seen! you are honest, patient, and loyal to your client.

God bless you and wish you the best in your carrier." Homa Bayraghi (Buyer) Address: 22100 Burbank Blvd 262g Woodland Hills Ca 91367
    "Rene was very helpful from start to finish! I just bought a 2 bedroom/2bath foreclosure and Rene was super knowledgeable throughout the entire process. He was always easy to reach and was very professional. Even though it took longer than expected (due to some of my own issues) Rene was patient with me and he got the job done. He kept me well informed throughout and most importantly I always felt he was performing in my best interest. I couldn't be more happy with my buying experience." Mark Hammelman (Buyer & Investor) Address: 6300 Shoup Ave #9 Woodland Hills CA 91367
    "Rene was very patient in our experience. We are first time buyers and looked for a particular house for a particular price. We were looking for a year or so. We'd had other realtors who gave up on us after a week. . that was a drag. . . but Rene was great, kept in touch with us every week and took us out a number of times to look at houses and finally we found one thanks to him. . . I highly recommend this fine human being and knowledgeable realtor. . . " Joe & Maria Mastro (Buyers) Address: 7718 Whitsett Ave North Hollywood CA 91605
    "Rene did a great job and was very accommodating to my wife and I. My wife's job gave her an option to transfer to La from the East Bay to which we accepted only allowing us 2 weeks before we were to move. That being said we had 3 days to physically find a place to live. I called Rene about a property late the second night we were in town to find housing and he made sure we were able to see the place the following day. Immediately after we contacted him and went to his office to fill out applications and provide the necessary paperwork. He was more than helpful in getting everything taken care of between the property owner and accommodating our needs as well. Throughout the entire process he was very reachable and answered any and all of the questions we had. Nevertheless, I would not hesitate to work with Rene again in the future. Thanks Rene for all your help!" Just & Angel Fischer (Tenants) Address: 7300 Lennox Ave Van Nuys CA 91405
    "The best thing about Rene is he is not pushy at all. He helps you as long as you feel comfortable and confident that you find your favorite property. Besides, Rene is always available, even in weekends, and he returns your call shortly. if I want to do any transactions on property, Rene is the one whom I go to..."

We were interested in placing an offer on a few homes during that time but our realtor was too slow to respond and react. After doing some research, we found Rene Fuentes! Within a month of contacting him, we were able to see multiple properties, made a couple of offers and entered escrow on a home that we love.

I recommend Rene 100% for your buying and selling real estate needs." Karina Jimenez
