I have had this tree for four years and only gotten 4 figs on it all before I repotted it. . . after repotting no fruit at all.

It is just now getting old enough to produce fruit. It takes 3-6 years for a fig tree to be mature enough to produce fruit and even then, the first year or so of fruit production will be light.

Another possibility is that the soil has too much nitrogen or too little phosphorous. Add some bone meal to the soil to counter this.

It may also be that late frost is killing the fruit while it is still small.
