    I am writing this letter as a personal and professional testimonial to Fred Zuelich.Way back in 1993 my wife and I met Fred when we went to an open house inWestchester, CA.Fred was friendly and relaxed and went out of his way to answer our questionsabout purchasing a home. This was our first time to buy and we wereunderstandably very nervous.Fred talked to us about everything from listings to financing, insurance to escrowand really made us feel more confident in our purchasing decision.Long story short, we bought that very home and still live in it 25 years later.But beyond putting us in our first home, Fred opened our eyes to the possibilitiesthat real estate provides in terms of financial security.Because of his guidance, his contacts and his desire to see us improve our lives, wewent on to make many real estate investments that literally secured our financialfuture.Fred has a heart as big as the Pacific and a pleasant, easy going manner that justmakes all of one’s interactions with him very comfortable.We value Fred’s advice and his friendship and truly appreciate that knowing himhas made a big difference in our lives.Sincerely,Dave and Ronnie Hill.

Add afriendly and kind personality andyou have the perfect agent. I highlyrecommend Fred for all your realestate needs.Bryn Stroyke, Stroyke PropertiesDan O’Connor, Strand HillAnita Saitta

    "Fred's knowledge of the Real Estate Industry showed in every aspect of the sale he did for us. He recommendations as we wrapped of getting the house ready for sale were spot on. While we were in Escrow Fred was on the Sale from early morning to late at night. He was steadfast in meeting his commitments to us as well as the agents for the prospective buyers. His expertise in negotiating were spot on, and it made a lot of things we did not see coming easy to maneuver. I gave him 5 stars in this review, if I could I would give him an extra 3, his manner and experience really came through." holman tech 3013 Glenhurst St, West Covina, CA 91792

    My husband and I were on the hunt for our first home together as a family and were desperately trying to find the perfect place to raise our newborn son. We were originally working with another realtor but when things weren’t quite working out we were referred to Fred by my uncle who has worked with him over the past years. Even though our price range wasn’t what he was used to, Fred assured us the price did not matter and he was going to take care of us to help find the right home. As first-time buyers we had a lot to learn with the home buying process, especially in the ultra-competitive L.A. market. Fred guided us through every step along the way. Many obstacles surfaced, but nothing stopped Fred,he was determined to help us get our dream home. We ended up finding the perfect home in El Segundo where we enjoy walks down Main St. and bike rides to the beach. My family and I can’t thank Fred enough for all his hard work and are looking forward to our next home purchase as our family continues to expand. Not only have we found a great realtor but we have gained a longtime friend in this journey as well!The O’Book Family (Chris, Alyssa & Carson)

    3838 W Carson Street Suite 109 Torrance.CA 90S03‐6703 Phone (310) 540‐1330 Fax (310) 540‐1592www.american‐california.comFred was the realtor on both the sale of my Manhattan Beach property and on the purchase of my Palos Verdes Estates property. When it comes to buying and selling your home, you want Fred to be your realtor. He works to close both transactions as fast and as painless as possible. His experience and expertise is unparalleled. Buying or selling your home is one of the biggest financial decisions a person or family will often make in their life. I wanted someone who would step up and get the job done for me. And, that person was definitely Fred. Real Estate should be treated as a business. I obviously wanted     to make the most money and save the most money, and Fred acc?mplished this efficiently for me. He always kept my best interest at heart. The best part was, I never even listed my house. Fred was able     to find multiple buyers with offers, without having to do an open house. It was great. I am also not       the typical buyer, as I was looking to move quickly (prior to getting married), and I made an offer without stepping foot in my new home. Some may call that crazy, but I trusted Fred and his knowledge of         the area as well as my instincts. Fred was able to acquire my new house before they even had a chance to do the planned open house. In this market you definitely can't move slowly. Fred was able to        move swiftly by selling my previous property and acquiring my new house all in less than 25 days, which was pretty remarkable. Not only am I proud to call Fred my realtor and always impressed by his business savvy, but I am also happy to call him a friend. He is great to do business with.Sincerely,Ryan Hermann

    To say that Fred sold my house and helped me through the process of buying areplacement is like saying Captain Ahab was a fisherman. All the things he did forme - unbelievable. He sold my long time sand street home in a manner that waseasy for me and still got me top dollar. He was attentive to my “wish list” for mynext home and found me the perfect place. He was a great resource thru the moveby helping me find wonderful skilled tradesmen. Fred always made me feel that myneeds were important and that I was not just a commission. I have recommendedhim and will contjnue to do so as he is knowledgeable, honest, principled. a pleasureto work with and truly listens to the client.Terry Cobar Sweeny

    To whom it may concern: We were very happy to have Fred Zuelich as our real estate agen. The very firstday we listed our home, in Manhattan Beach, Fred had a buyer the very next day... well beyond our expectations! Fred scheduled all meetings and interactions atour convenience after work and on the weekends too. He even arranged for ourescrow agent to meet at our home when it was not convenient to get out to theoffice.As Fred had the role of dual agent for us and the buyer throughout the entireprocess he was professional, conscientious, and motivated. Fred had that kind ofrelationship with all the people involved. He assured us he would work to make theprocess easy on our part and that’s exactly what he did. We always felt as thoughwe were his only client.I highly recommend Fred Zuelich as he is willing to go beyond the expectations of apotential real estate buyer or seller.

    Fred,Wanted to take a minute to thank you for the terrific job you did on the sale ofour home at 512 Strand. You got us the highest price, EVER, for an inside Strandlot, and I believe that is still true! You found a qualified buyer within 2 weeks oflisting with you .... with no open houses, no multiple listing. I’m still not sure howyou got us 1 year free rent, after the sale .... but that saved us over $100,000and allowed us to find our new home at a leisurely pace. Your experience payedmore dividends as we used the escrow company and exchange people you hadsuccessfully worked with in the past. Overall satisfaction working with you due toyour experience and professional approach to business. Thanks again.Jerry and Joyce Meyer

    Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Hermosa Beach, California. As a first time buyer, Fred was able to smoothly guide us through the home buying process. Local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills! His professionalism and his knowledge of the area put us at ease and we have been happy home buyers since!
