The Foley Real Estate Story

In 1957, long before Santa Clara Valley was Silicon Valley, Eugene F. Foley (Gene) opened a small mortgage loan office on Lincoln Avenue in San Jose (Willow Glen). Gene got his California Real Estate Brokers License in 1966 and incorporated his business in 1980. Gene’s daughter-in- law, Pam Foley, joined the company and got her Real Estate Sales License in 1987. Pam then earned her Real Estate Brokers License in 1990 and quickly took a leadership role in the San Jose Real Estate Board and the California Association of Realtors.


Mike Foley, Pam’s husband and Gene’s son, was instrumental in helping rehab properties in preparation for sale. In 1993, Mike & Pam Foley bought E. F. Foley & Co., Inc. from Gene.

Foley Real Estate Group – Today

Over time, as E. F. Foley & Co., Inc. grew, it became clear to both Mike and Pam that they could best identify the company by splitting and branding the mortgage and real estate businesses separately. So in 2015, E. F. Foley & Co., Inc. began doing business as Foley Real Estate Group.

We are still the same trusted Foley family owned company that generations of clients have come to count on. Whether you are making an offer or listing your home, do not underestimate the value of a well-known, respected and professional team.
