Our History

In 1967, Bob Lesser, then an architect and developer, was asked to evaluate the potential uses for the center of the new town of Thousand Oaks, California. In carrying out this assignment, he found that the creativity and financial imagination required for the study were extremely stimulating—so much so that he started Robert Charles Lesser & Co.™ (now RCLCO).

Today, our team of experienced professionals still shares that original enthusiasm and eagerness to solve challenging real estate questions and add value to our clients real estate activities.
