California Oaks Realtors, a long time fixture in Real Estate was re-established in 1994. It is family owned and operated by Bob and Linda Freeny. Bob and Linda, who had both worked before in corporate offices viewed the chance to re-open California Oaks Realtors as an opportunity to good to pass up. Leaving the corporate world was the best thing they ever did. California Oaks is one of the few independent offices left in Ventura County, as most independents are now selling out to the “BIG “names.
The atmosphere at California Oaks is best described as people friendly. Clients who walk through the doors immediately feel at home. The real estate agents are not high pressure but are extremely successful in serving their client’s needs. They do not charge “garbage” fees” like the large corporate offices under the guise of a processing fee. All of our fees, and services are included in the real estate commissions…no extra, or add on charges. Their clients know that they are in good hands when they are warmly welcomed and not just viewed as “as a paycheck”. Their realtors have pride in their profession and look to make every transaction a pleasure for all concerned. Many valuable friendships have been formed, with trust and communication being key to every transaction.
The office is a full service, one stop shop. They have a lender, Alexis Andrews with Hillhurst Mortgage who maintains a desk there so that potential clients are pre-qualified , or know what they can qualify for to buy. When not at his desk he is always available by phone at ANY time of day.
They have an on-site, property manager, Michele Shelton, with Seaward Property Management, who has been in the business for over 15 years and really knows her stuff. Both landlords and tenants know they have someone who understands both sides of the lease relationship, and her friendly attitude puts all who sit at her desk at ease. This is a great quality, which is not outweighed by her experience and her understanding of what both landlords and tenants not only expect, but are pleased to get.
The receptionist, Lissa Wilson, who does just about everything else, is the first person a potential client sees. Her smile of welcome is echoed by everyone in the office. Her always cheerful attitude is an influence and boon to all who work here. If she ever has a bad day, it never shows.
