Hoge Fenton attorneys have deep experience and local knowledge in the Northern California public and private real estate arenas. That local knowledge and relationships with key players can often make the difference in a deal getting done. We have also assisted clients with real estate transactions in other parts of the United States.

We believe strongly that:

  • We must add to our clients’ bottom lines
  • The earlier we can get involved in a transaction, land use proceeding, or controversy, the greater the value we can create for our client
  • Our clients can depend upon our judgment calls
  • We must be masters at deal-making, not deal breaking
  • We appreciate and value the speedy transaction, but never at the sacrifice of quality
