Without a doubt I would recommend Leah to others and in fact, I already have.
"I knew that going into 2015 that this would be the year that I would take the plunge and buy. I wasn't worried about timing the market or worrying about anything other than finding something I loved and feel inspired walking into the door everyday. I've had the pleasure of knowing Leah for the past 15 years so I already know how dedicated, thorough researched and determined she is. For me, buying in the Southern California market there was no other choice I even contemplated making. The very best part was Leah's unwavering belief in finding a home that met all of my core values and must-haves and going far beyond the call of duty to accommodate my schedule for showings or inspections or responding to my emails at the craziest hours. She also has a relentless attention to detail that put me completely at ease. I never once thought that Leah wouldn't find my next home. Without a doubt I would recommend Leah to others and in fact, I already have." --Khalid Jones
I was so thrilled with the result that I wished I had another place to sell!
"Leah is a close friend from law school and was a real estate attorney before becoming a real estate agent, so she was the natural choice when it was time to sell my condo. I purchased it ten years ago, close to the height of the market, and was prepared to sell for a price lower then what I paid, but was hoping to avoid a big loss. Enter Leah and her magic. Selling my condo induced some anxiety for me because I am not an expert in real estate, but knowing that Leah possessed the expertise that I did not, I put my trust in her and am so glad I did. I followed all of her recommendations to get my condo "sale ready" -- did some repairs, painting, and a thorough clean, then staged it using a company she recommended. The result was so gorgeous that I wanted to move back in. Leah thoroughly researched the neighborhood and other condos in my building, and devised a sales strategy to list my condo at a price that would attract a lot of attention. It certainly worked. I received ten written offers before my first open house (all at or above asking price). I was ready to take the first offer (above listing price), but Leah told me to be patient (a trait I do not possess in great abundance). I eventually accepted an offer that matched the price I paid for my condo ten years ago -- all cash with a 15-day escrow. I was so thrilled with the result that I wished I had another place to sell. Leah is amazing and I have already recommended her to several people looking to buy or sell their place." - Paty Young
I knew I had my agent!
"I was looking to purchase a well-priced single family home in an emerging LA neighborhood before prices climbed to levels experienced in adjacent hot-market neighborhoods. Based on an extremely positive experience working with Leah on a downtown LA loft, I knew I had my agent. She has built solid relationships with the agents and other key players in the real estate market, which puts any client in the best position to succeed. She learned my tastes, sent timely listings of desirable properties, and scheduled viewings around my busy schedule, often private and early showings. She's gotten me through doors that were otherwise closed. And, Leah was always at the property ready to greet me with her positive and calming vibe. She made enjoyable an otherwise dreadful process. Leah has my highest recommendation for three reasons: (1) never felt pressured; (2) had the best and most current listings, and access to Leah’s own insights of neighborhoods, sellers, and properties; and (3) when it came time to act, had a highly skilled and persuasive negotiator to seal the deal." - Johnny
If you are looking to purchase a home, I highly recommend Leah Guerra!
"My wife and I decided it was time to move out of her condo and wanted a house that was ours. I focused our search on the Hollywood Hills and started looking for a few months via real estate websites like Zillow and Redfin before getting serious about the search, which is when we retained Leah's services. Leah set up some searches for us and did initial visits to houses we liked, which was really helpful because it did not require us to take time off work. Leah had spent time to learn exactly what we were looking for, so she was able to tell us when a house was not for us (or when it was) and give her reasons, which was a huge time saver for us. When we finally found our house, Leah made the purchase process so easy. She gave us advice on what we should offer, recommended inspectors and set up the appointments (which she attended with me), and even recommended the bank we used to secure the mortgage (making sure that we always had an up to date pre-approval letter to use for making an offer). About 99% of the paperwork was handled online (only the final escrow documents the day before closing required in person signatures), which again saved us time and allowed us to move through the process quickly. If you are looking to purchase a home, I highly recommend Leah Guerra." - Arne Pulle
