"In this tough market, and with such a life changing purchase, you really need to read the reviews clients are giving their real estate agents. With that said, this review is long overdue as this is the second time Rene assists us with a purchase of a home. Which actually, speaks well of him if we were willing to go through this grueling and excited process with him FOR THE SECOND TIME!
My husband and I sold our first home in Norwalk to move to Whittier. We lost a few buyers for the Norwalk home along the way, as we were not willing to sell until we found a new house. We also lost a few homes in bidding wars, even though Rene sacrificed his portion of the commission, and were honestly highly discouraged a few times to continue searching for our “dream home”. After a numerous amount of showings for the Norwalk house (which was super annoying btw) and a 6 month house hunting endeavor, Rene made it happen! He sold the Norwalk house and closed on the Whittier home within days of each other. Rene is genuine, professional, available, persistent and swift. He always told us the truth regardless of the consequences; always replied to our texts and answered our calls immediately even when he knew we were frustrated; always had the valor to call us when he bared bad news and held our hand through the entire process. Not once, did he attempt to sell us a house we disliked or try to deceive us. On the contrary, he offered to lower his commission to fund our transaction if we found ourselves a few thousand dollars short to close on the Whittier house (too sweet)! Who does that right?! We created such as strong bond, that by the end of it all, I was signing with my eyes closed. Rene exceeded our expectations, went beyond that, and then went a few miles further."

"Even though my plans changed for buying a home I would highly recommend Renee 21 who's looking for an experienced patient and honest person to work c, Friendly and patient really pays attention to detail and worked with our schedule....Grateful and highly recommend."
"If we could give Rene and his team 6 stars we would! First of all they helped us find a house that we loved and we could afford in the very competitive city of Torrance. He helped us navigate a very complicated escrow process due to the fact that we own a business and had mixed our personal and business expenses. He was patient when I lost my cool and got frustrated. But most of all he was very sincere and straight forward, never over promising and always letting us know the reality of the situation, even when it wasn't what we wanted to hear. He was also very accommodating to our crazy schedule even meeting after hours when we got off from work. At the end of it all he managed to get us into our home and we are extremely happy with his service. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house or commercial property in the area."

"Rene was very professional and patient during the entire process. Buying a home is exciting and very stressful on future homeowners. Rene was composed, energetic and ready to cater to us. One big plus is that Rene is very knowledgeable in every aspect of the real estate business! No trick up his sleeves, no hidden fees, no small print agreements. Just honest, hard working, down to earth Realtor who works for you!"

"Extremely pleased and grateful! Rene has gone out of his way to help me in my home purchase. He has been very informative, guiding me and showing me the best options, he has helped me in everyway of the process. His knowledge of the market and the business side of it is impressive and reassuring. I came to him after having worked with another agent for a whole year without any progress. Working with Rene has been very educational, I have learned a lot, he is very patient in explaining and advising. He was very quick to return my calls, regardless of its insignificance. At the end of the whole process, I bought a house that is more than I expected and within my budget, and that is important. I would highly and with great pleasure recommend Rene Fuentes as your agent, he is very helpful, kind, and professional. A pleasure to work with."
"LIKE EVERY FAMILY WE ALWAYS HAD IN MIND OUR DREAM HOME. WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY OF ACHIEVING OUR GOAL CAME WITHIN REACH, WE WERE FORTUNATE TO HAVE SOMEONE WITH THE KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE THAT DREAM COME TRUE.
I WILL LIKE TO THANK RENE FUENTES FOR HIS INTEGRITY, HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO MAKE THE WHOLE PROCESS UNCOMPLICATED AND FOR GIVING OUR FAMILY THE HAPPINES OF HAVING OUR DREAM HOME.
THANK YOU RENE FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT OPPORTUNITY!" - THE GARIBAYS
"Rene came highly recommended by a partner of mine. After meeting with him and asking him specific questions about the short sale process, he did not only answer my questions, but went further deep into details, different scenarios and obstacles that we'll need to overcome. He was right on, 9 out of 10 times. I was very impressed with his knowledge to the short sale and the his timely manner response to sensitive responses required. He walked me through every step of the way during the sale of my property. He followed up daily with the applicable parties and his communication on keeping me in the loop through the process exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Rene without reservation!"
"Since the first day we meet with him he impress us with his experience on the business. He is very professional and always had an answer for us. We have a excellence service and he was always on top to follow up on the process since the moment we put the offers he follow up and after our offer was accepted he inform us step by step how the process it will be. We are very happy with his services and we recommend him for any needs regarding to buy or sell a home."
"I initially began to work with Rene Fuentes in November 2011. I must emphasize that he was extremely patient with me throughout the entire process. After having cold feet and being undecided about where I wanted my first home to be, I aggressively began my search again in November 2012. Rene Fuentes fully understood my needs and wants as far as what was on my wish list, i.e., location, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, backyard, etc.
My search finally took me to make an offer in late January. I must admit that the process did hit its bumps BUT thanks to Rene Fuentes’ hard work and dedication, being a homeowner finally became a reality for me. From the initial moment of making the offer, to the home inspection, to the close of escrow, Rene Fuentes was always keeping me informed and in the loop of everything that was going on with the process. I would receive daily updates from him and he was always available to answer any questions that I had. Rene Fuentes truly went above and beyond for me and he really made me feel appreciated as a client. Even after closing escrow there are some issues that he is still helping me resolve. His professionalism and expertise have made the process of purchasing a home easy for me.
I highly recommend the services of Rene Fuentes to anyone that is looking to purchase a home. He makes his clients’ needs a top priority and is truly a star agent. He has been in the business for more many years and the bumps we had in this process have shown me his extensive experience in the business. You will be very pleased when you choose Rene Fuentes as your next agent."
"After coming across a very unscrupulous real estate agent who was trying to take advantage of my situation I was referred to René, after sitting down with him and discussing my situation he was able to tell me what was going on with my property and why the short sale wasn’t closing, he canceled my previous agreement with the other agent toke over the short sale, found a buyer and was able to close my short sale within three months. After dealing with the uncertainty of not knowing what was going on with the other agent which had been working on it for over a year I’m glad that I was referred to René and now I’m able to move on with my life knowing that things got done right .thank you René, I would recommend anyone who is thinking about selling their home or doing a short sale to call René he is truly a professional."
"The Best in the Business! When Buying and Selling a home we all worry that it might be stressful and full of worries... That is one thing I never had to deal with! I was on the edge of Foreclosure, getting no where with Banks and no one would help, untill Rene Fuentes came to my Rescue, once he explained the process of SHORT SALE I was sold! Rene was in full control and his knowledge an expertise with the Foreclosure and Short Sale process was phenominal! He saved my Credit and put me at ease with all the process. I have delt with a couple of real estate agents in the past, but I had never felt so worry-free! I will recommend Rene Fuentes 100% and I have to all my Family and friends!
A very happy client!"

"Rene is an awesome realtor. I'd hear people saying how stressful it was to purhase a house, but with Rene as our realtor I am glad I never felt that way. He is very knowledgable at what he does, not only does he have years of expertise, but enjoys helping people purchase their dream home. Rene was very patient with us and was always looking out for our interests. He always went out of his way, going the extra mile for us. I was extremely pleased with his services and professionalism. Rene is by far the best realtor anyone can ever ask for. There are no words I can say that can express the gratitude for all he did. I have recommended Rene to a few family and friends of whom always come back to me saying only positive things, thus not even thinking of looking for someone else as their realtor."
"Rene helped my wife and I purchase our first home together. It was a short-sale, I was expecting delays and frustrations as with any short-sale, but leave it up to Rene to get us into our house within about 60 days. He took care of all the hassles and negotions. He is always responsive and keeps his word. He took care of us from beginning to end and even after we moved in to make sure everyting was taken care off. I highly recommend his services. He is a seasoned real estate professional with a knack for closing difficult deals."
