About The Speakers

  • renee2
Renee and Maic Friedrich
Renee and Maic Friedrich are co-owners of The Friedrich Real Estate Group brokered by eXp Realty, which is based out of beautiful El Dorado Hills, a suburb of Sacramento, CA. In 2007, right in the midst of Sacramento's major downturn, Renee joined her husband Maic in the real estate business. Maic had been steadily building his business since 2004 by being active in the community and working with their friends and neighbors. Working together as a team created the perfect combination for their clients and their family.
Having purchased and sold several homes over their 20 years together, Renee and Maic know what it feels like to be on the consumer side of the real estate transaction and strive to provide an extraordinary experience to their clients.  Partnering with SAFE credit union to give back to the members has been a passion for the couple in their business as well.  They love the educational approach SAFE credit union takes with their members and it fits in perfectly with their core values.
