      Goran and LIsa have great local market knowledge and were extremely helpful in providing guidance on fixing up my home to get the maximum price. I was able to sell my property in just a few weeks from listing it. They provide very wide listing exposure on all the top real estate web sites. They are very flexible and easy to work with.

              • Goran helped me buy a home

                  We worked with Davida from Team Forss in buying our home and we were tough looking at houses searching for perfection but Davida was with us at every step always on time and really knew the area we were lucky to meet Davida and have her with us in this process.

                • Goran helped me buy a home

                    I worked with Davida from Team Forss and she is a great realtor. We were moving from Texas to SoCal and knew very little about the area. Davida is extremely knowledgeable, very responsive, and professional. I highly recommend her and her team. Thanks Davida!

                  • Goran helped me buy a home

                      Brian and Lisa Mason are the best buyers' agents you could possibly imagine. They were very responsive right from the beginning. They asked us all the right questions and knew what we wanted and where to suggest that we look. We are moving from another state and didn't know the neighborhoods in Temecula and Murrieta, but they are very knowledgeable about all the strengths and weaknesses of the area. We worked with them over several months long distance, and they were always in touch and responsive over email, phone and text. They set up a dedicated online search site for us where we could add houses we were interested in as well as their recommendations. Once we toured the homes, they helped us with the offer. This is extremely important because the market moves so quickly. We got the house we wanted at a good price. Even after the sale, they have helped us by recommending and contacting service people, such as painters, carpet installers and landscapers. They are a pleasure to work with, and we can't recommend they highly enough. The dream team!

                        Thank you John and Team Forss! My wife and I are so impressed with your professionalism. You stayed in touch with us and always updated us on what you were doing to get our dream home. The updates kept my wife happy. And of course if momma is happy, everyone is happy. I will refer everyone I know that is looking for a home to you. Thank you John!

                      • Deciding on the right realtor to sell your home is not easy but I am very happy that we chose Lisa and Goran Forss.We interviewed several realtors before going with Team Forss.They answered every question we had without hesitation at our initial meeting and throughout the entire selling process. This was enormously helpful whenever we had concerns or needed updates. They also had a more sophisticated and comprehensive marketing plan than other agents proposed, and were able to implement it to our advantage. I was able to see our house was constantly featured on Zillow and other major online real estate sites. Also, I think it's very important to be able to connect with whomever is selling your house on a personal level. Let's face it, it's an emotional process and you should have a good rapport with your agent. Both Lisa and Goran were very personable. Their associates were great to deal with as well. I highly recommend Team Forss! You will be investing your time wisely and putting the sale of your home in good hands!

                      • This is a bit of an unusual review. I'm a San Diego county real estate broker. I have a client who was in escrow on one of Matt Tibbetts listings. He's been an extraordinary professional throughout the transaction. Earlier today, my client' appraisal came in short by a significant amount and unfortunately for both very lovely parties, the transaction had to be cancelled. I try to hold myself to a high standard and it's self-evident Matt does too. It was clear to both of us that the best action was to move on and he handled the matter smoothly and calmly, always ensuring he was acting in the best interest of his client. Not once did he think of the amount of additional work it might mean for he or his team. He just wanted to do the right thing. That's ethical, moral and good business practice. It's too rare. I'm a 26 year veteran of this business, sell a lot of homes, and deeply respect his work. I'd hire him in a New York minute if I had a need in southern Riverside County. First rate all the way.

                      • A huge Thank You to Team Forss and specifically MATT! You sold our home in a week, got us "above ask" $$ and were so professional and easy to work with! Matt was so quick to return our calls and answer questions! I highly recommend Team Forss Realty Group!!!! It was truly an outstanding experience! Lisa and Tony Lingard

                      • We feel incredibly lucky to have had Ryan Phillips of Team Forss to help us through this home buying process. As first time buyers in an unfamiliar area, we had a lot of questions and were uneducated about the process. Ryan was very patient with our inexperience and also just fun to be around. We felt like he was a knowledgable friend helping us and that made this experience so much better! Thanks Ryan!

                      • Let's see, where do I start? First and foremost John Cable is phenomenal! He is beyond professional and knowledgeable of the real estate market and your personal interest. I contacted John on a Thursday, and the following Saturday, we were looking at homes. John was prompt, organized, and professionally dressed. We looked at a total of about 8 homes, and upon arrival to each, John provided detailed documentation along with the tax rate and so forth. Now for the icing on the cake. That same Saturday night, we placed a bid on a home and the seller accepted! From then on all was history! The loan officers were great, each were patient with my many questions, and kept me abreast on the progress of the home almost on a daily basis. We closed escrow is less than 20 days! With that being said, if you are serious about purchasing a home John Cable is the realtor for you! I can't thank John and his assistant Natalie enough! Thank you for making my families dreams come true!

                      • My wife and I purchased our first home through Team Forss. Brian and Lisa Mason were incredibly professional, and went above and beyond what either of us was expecting. They answered our questions almost instantly, at any time of the day, even with the time difference from Hawaii. We bought sight unseen, and probably would not have been comfortable doing so had it been anyone else. Both Brian and Lisa made the home-buying process very personal, as it should be. I would recommend them to anyone interested in the market. Thanks guys for all your hard work!

                      • Damien Simon of Team Forss was our realtor and we highly recommend him. He was so helpful and responsive with every question and need. He was with us every step of the way and explained every detail which was so nice since we were first time homebuyers. Two thumbs up from us and five stars all the way. Thank you Damien!

                        - Jane S, Wildomar CA
                      • Team Forss is the best!!! I love how easy it is to communicate with them, including agents and assistants! We sold our first home and bought our second home within a couple months. Our seller agent was Deborah Llambias and buyers agents were Jarred and Jenni Brink. I can't thank them enough for having the patience to deal with my pickiness and being so friendly and communicative the entire time! We had a really hard time with our buyers' lender but Deborah was on his tail the entire process and kept us updated. She would answer every single question I had with all the patience in the world. Jarred and Jenni went above and beyond helping us find the perfect home! Jarred is so easy to talk to and truly had our best interest in mind. We were house shopping with a monthly payment in mind and he didn't try to shove any houses at us above a certain price range that we could qualify for but didn't want the monthly payment. It's not always easy to find people who are honest like that! Even after closing, he followed up and showed genuine interest in seeing how we were doing. If we ever buy a house again, we won't use anyone else besides Jarred and Jenni Brink!

                      • Lisa and Goran Forss Realty earned our trust so much that we actually purchased a home sight unseen through him. Tom is very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and has a keen interest in learning peoples needs. My husband and I met with Tom during a 1 week visit to California from Massachusetts. We found Tom through a search on Zillow. We chose Lisa and Goran Forss Realty, and Tom answered the phone. Since we did not know anything about the area, Tom explained the California real estate process, familiarized us with Temecula and Murrieta, showed us several homes, filled us in about the neighborhoods that he thought we would have an interest in, and answered our many, many questions. Although we did not find the perfect home during that week, Tom earned our trust. Once back home in Massachusetts, Tom would go out and video homes that we showed an interest in. Through that process, we were able to purchase a home long distance. We have since moved to our new home in California and just love it. We would highly recommend Tom, and his wife Janet, who also assisted us and was involved in the process, to anyone in the Temecula/Murrieta area who is in the need for a Realtor. They were there from beginning to end. It takes a lot of trust to go through the process we did with someone we just met during 1 week. But we have no regrets and are very happy.

                      • Team Forss did a great job in selling our home. Their marketing strategy is what made sense to us. As a result of this strategy we had a lot of showings and finally a sale! They even helped us with staging by providing a professional stager to make our home very marketable. A special thanks to Matt T. for all his help.

                      • Team Forss sold my house in Temecula remotely from Northern California and it was a breeze. I have a fair amount of real estate experience (50+ transactions) which means I have high expectations.I know all of the usual brokers (C21, Remax, etc.) but had never heard of Allison James. I included them in the interview process just because of the volume they do.Interviewed 3 realtors all different brokers and I could tell Matt had by far the most experience around the process, what to expect, local market conditions, etc. This far outweighed any concern I had around Allison James.Made the decision to list with Matt Tibbetts and never looked back.Matt got it listed with marketing copy and out everywhere in 48 hours. Trust me that's fast. From there, timely updates, always available, all cash offer, closed in 20 days.
