Here's a little more about us and how we do things here.
You've probably heard that in real estate, the three most important things are "location, location, location." While location is crucial, in Lamorinda, we've pretty much got that covered anywhere you go. So at Finola Fellner, we put a lot of our focus on building relationships. Here's why: our relationships with our fellow agents in Lamorinda mean that we have access to information and properties that other firms just can't match. And because we develop such close relationships with our clients, we're counted on to be a resource long after closing day. We wouldn't have it any other way.
Born and raised in Orinda, Finola Fellner is a Compass broker with more than 15 years of experience and is the expert on the local market trends, neighborhoods, schools and recreational resources in the Lamorinda area.
As one of the top—and most respected—agents in Lamorinda, Finola gives every client her dedication attention and expertise in even the most complex real estate transactions. She’s renowned for being an excellent communicator (crucial for clients in high-stress bidding situations!), a tenacious negotiator and a savvy marketer. According to one client, “From beginning to end, [you] went above and beyond to make sure that this difficult process was handled with care, compassion and a level of professionalism that was unparalleled.”
Finola graduated from Orinda’s Miramonte High School, received a degree in history from UC Berkeley as well as a master’s degree from St. Mary’s College in Moraga. Before following her passion for real estate and becoming an agent, she spent 10 years teaching in the classroom and then several more as an entrepreneur developing a successful private education business.
She comes from a big family that is deeply rooted in the Lamorinda community—her kids have 31 cousins in the immediate area!—so she knows everything there is to know about schools, sports, and other local resources. In fact, she's an active volunteer for the Orinda schools as well as other community and athletic programs.
When she's not helping you find the perfect house or helping her community, she spends time hiking, skiing and hanging out with her husband Rob and her kids Jack, Betsy and Sally.
