What others say about the Fernwood Group Inc.
Thanks for spending time with me and saving me from a bankruptcy and foreclosure. I was ready to walk away from my house and ruin my credit until you showed me how I could sell it quickly and preserve my credit. Wow-what an eye opener and my situation was resolved in one week. Even my attorney was surprised.
I.J., Gilroy, California
This was the easiest and fastest deal I have ever been involved in. It took less than 2 weeks to close and you handled all the paperwork and we didn't even need an escrow. As a former real estate broker for 20 years, you showed me how to save in commissions and fees and sell my property quickly. My wife and I told you that we plan to sell several properties in the future and we will call you first. Thanks for showing me a new way after all these years.

We were selling our home by owner with very little luck. Your knowledge and professionalism took all the worry out of the sale. You prepared all the documents and made sure that we complied with all the requirements. Thanks to you, we moved on to live out our dream in Hawaii.
J.B. and B.B., Hawaii
You saved my home. I was ready to lose my house, but you spent time going over all that I had invested in remodeling and mortgage payments. Although you had come to buy my house, you convinced me that I had too big an investment to lose and should keep it. Not only was my credit saved, but my house too.
D.K., Lake Hughes, California
Well, our idea to collaborate on the Open House worked great for me. Your ads brought people from all over. Thanks for referring a couple to me-I sold the house that day to them. Who says investors and realtors can't work together. We proved that it was fun and profitable having an open house on the same day.
S.H., Lake Elizabeth, California
Thank you for all you have done. My wife and I know that you could have been much more aggressive. We appreciate your gentleman's attitude.
C.W., Los Angeles, California
We wish that we had met you 6 months ago before we listed. You came to our garage sale and asked how the sale of the ranch was going. We told you that we'd had very few showings. You talked about Internet marketing, we wrote some ads together and within less than 1 week we had two showings. You are discussing buying one of the couple's homes and closing quickly. If you do, they will buy our 13 acre cherry ranch. We are confident that with your marketing expertise we will sell soon. Thanks, neighbor.

My son and I appreciate the degree of patience, understanding and trust you have shown us while we were tenants. You understood that we all fall on hard times and you showed me that even in business some people still follow their hearts. Your faith in me helped me to have more faith in myself so I was able to catch up and stabilize. You went above and beyond what most landlords would do and for that I am grateful.
D.G., Simi Valley, California
I wish we had talked to you before we filed bankruptcy. You showed us how we could have worked with our lender to satisfy our back payments. In spite of our credit problem, you rented to us when no one else would. We are so pleased with the house and being here has allowed our son to be in one of the best high schools around. We are taking good care of the house and hope that this in some way can repay your kindness.
T.G., Houston, Texas
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How do I know I can trust you?
A: We have been in the real estate business for the last 2 decades and have lived in Los Angeles County the entire time. We moved to the Palmdale/Leona Valley area in 1998 and want to stay here. We are definitely not a fly-by-night operation. You will not be forced to do anything. The choice is always yours.
Q: Tell me more about who you are and what you do.
A: We are a group of seasoned investors who buy, sell, and lease residential real estate throughout Southern California. We are not a Realtor's office. Of course, like any other business we are trying to make a profit. We do this while assisting people just like you. That is why we offer so many programs to buyers and sellers. Each person's situation is unique and must be dealt with uniquely. After speaking with you and seeing your property, we will make you our best offer and let you make the decision.
Q: I have a home I need to sell. Why don't I just list it with a Realtor?
A: That is certainly an option for you. If you have a nice house in a nice neighborhood and lots of time on your hands, then that may be your best bet. Please remember that a Realtor (1) will NOT make your mortgage payments for you, (2) will NOT make any repairs to your property, (3) will NOT guarantee to sell your property at all (let alone within a reasonable time period), and (4) will charge you a 6% commission.
Q: I am several payments behind on my mortgage, and just want out. What can you do to help me?
A: This really depends on the amount of the mortgage, the value of the property, and how many payments you are behind. We have several programs including payment takeover, assumption, and mortgage payoff. Each program is different and depends on your unique situation.
Q: I am in a real financial bind, but don't want to lose my house. What do you have to offer me?
A: We do have programs to help you keep your home. We have several equity-sharing programs, where we will become co-owners with you. These programs can actually improve your credit rating. Keep in mind however, that these programs ultimately depend on you. If you don't keep your end of the bargain, then you will most likely lose your house anyway.
Q: My house needs lots of repairs. Will you still buy it?
A: We don't mind making repairs, even major ones like a bad roof, electrical problems, plumbing leaks, bad air-conditioners, or termites. Of course we will need to see the property before we can make a decision.
Q: I need to sell immediately. How soon can you buy it?
A: Again this depends on the situation. Normally we can close as soon as we verify the numbers you have provided us and had the title checked. This usually only takes a few days.
Q: I don't have any equity in my house. Can you still buy it?
A: In many cases, yes. Many times this will be an extended sale though. Using our rent-to-own or lease purchase programs, we can make your mortgage payments and all property repairs.
