Les Fohl

Broker/ Owner

Thanks for this moment of your valuable time. I’m Les Fohl. If you’re thinking of selling your home, especially if it’s here in beautiful Hayward, California, I hope you’ll take the time to google and yelp my team and see what clients have to say about their experience with our service, and their great satisfaction with our results. I’ve been in this profession since February of 1977, and it’s a fact that there is no other active agent in the entire business with my experience, or my in-depth knowledge of this market.

I was born and raised in the Lockwood Housing Projects on 65th Avenue in Oakland, CA., and after moving to San Lorenzo in 1968, I graduated from Arroyo High School in 1973. Starting out quite young, I bought my first two homes before my 21st birthday, before deciding to “give real estate sales a try” in February of 1977. I’ve never looked back.
I obtained my Broker’s license in 1980, after completing my Advanced Broker Development Program via the University of Southern California, and opened my own office (Century 21 Adobe Realty) on Jackson Street in 1981. Years later I owned a RE/Max franchise, and thereafter, decided to fly my own flag, which I’ve done ever since. You’ve probably noticed my For Sale signs all over town. My office is located downtown on Main Street and I also own rental properties throughout this great city. My money is literally where my mouth is, and I LOVE Hayward. Having built a loyal base of clients with hard work, expertise, and dedication, I’ve been blessed to be recognized for many achievements. #1 top agent in the Bay East Association of Realtors. #1 agent in California (and Hawaii), #17 in the United States, and #19 in the world. My mom was so proud…my dad would have been too.

If experience REALLY MATTERS to you, you’ll want to know this fact. I started buying, fixing, and selling homes and multi-unit properties in 1977, as I stated. Since then, I’ve never stopped. I’ve done hundreds. As a matter of fact, I have bought, fixed and sold more homes on my own behalf than the great majority of all real estate licensee’s will ever do, in an entire career, for themselves and all of their clients combined. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
You’re getting ready to entrust someone with the enormous responsibility of representing you in what is most likely the most expensive business transaction of your life. Do you see the benefit of having an agent and team with this kind of experience working for you? I’ve taught my team where to spend money when getting a home properly prepared for the market, and equally important, where NOT to spend it. We know what things will make you money, and what things don’t. We will listen to you, understand your wants and needs, and then recommend the best way for you to achieve the most money possible, in the time frame that works best for you, and we will protect you, and eliminate stresses and worries that are a natural part of buying or selling a home. My team is proven negotiators, master marketers and Hayward Experts. This is where all of these years of experience pay off for my clients!
