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 dollar. 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! June 23, 2008 Jennifer Kopp

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 Fenchel 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 having 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 ciritcal. 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, Wendy and Michael Filler

01-14-09 To Whom It May Concern: When my wife and I decided to list our home, we wanted to take a thorough approach and interview several top realtors in our area. We were seeking an agent who understood the intricacies of the current housing market, has enjoyed a successful track record as a realtor, grasped the value proposition of our home, and was able to listen and respond to our concerns and questions throughout the process.
During the interview period, we met Eric and Robin Fenchel. They immediately separated themselves from the other agents we had encountered. First, Eric and Robin entered our home with a noticeable respect. They were the first realtors who didn't start the meeting by telling us what we needed to upgrade or improve upon should they take the listing. They listened to our story, and took notice of our thoughts regarding many issues and items within our home. Additionally, they didn't talk about their previous clients' personal stories- as other realtors had done. We weren't interested in working with someone who would share our personal information with their next potential clients after escrow closed.
Second, we were impressed with their extensive knowledge and understanding of the current financial situation, especially during these unprecedented times. They demonstrated an outstanding knowledge that went beyond the typical housing averages, and were able to speak intelligently to current financial markets. I later learned that Eric has an extensive background in this area.
Third, we were surprised that they knew more about our homebuilder than we did. Not only that, but they knew the background and history of the other homebuilders in our neighborhood and surrounding areas as well. To our surprise, this became a key element in the selling of our home.
Finally, and most importantly, we do not believe we would have sold our home in this environment without Eric and Robin. Like many other escrow transactions, we encountered some serious obstacles throughout the escrow period. Because of their extensive knowledge, experience and ability to ‘listen,' they single-handedly overcame every major issue that we encountered with the buyers during the escrow process. Even more impressive, they sold our home during one of the worst financial crisis our nation's history, and sold it for the highest price that anyone has ever paid for our model!
I think the highest complement you can give someone is a referral. Not only would I refer Eric and Robin to an acquaintance or friend, but I would refer them to my own family. I can't think of a better way of saying that we would use them all over again!

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 tough 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 Fenchel -
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!!!
