My wife and I can't say enough nice things about Leo. Before Leo, we had hired another realtor to list our place, however it quickly became apparent that we weren't getting the level of service we needed. We quickly pulled the listing from MLS and decided to hit the reset button, this time with Leo Peak. He put a tremendous amount of time and energy into marketing our place, listening to our needs/wants/preferences, helped with finding additional resources to do a partial stage on our house, and much more. He communicated often, always returned phone calls and texts, and was very easy to work with. All of his hard work resulted in us getting an over ask offer BEFORE the house was officially listed. Amazing work by Leo and his team and we would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Leo listened to our needs and helped set expectations regarding pricing, staging, and timelines. His professionalism is second only to his genuine desire to help his clients achieve their goals. He consistently went above and beyond! We can’t recommend Leo enough!
Leo was very thorough, trustworthy, data-driven and prompt throughout my first home buying process. When I was starting my search, I interviewed six highly ranked real estates agents before deciding to work with Leo. When I mentioned that I was interested in both resale and new construction, most real estate agents have described new construction purchase process as more of handing buyers off to the builder. Leo was only one who said he takes care of his clients to the end regardless of purchase type. And he did indeed deliver on that promise. In terms of technical qualification, Leo was only one out of six who had experience in buying/selling both existing home and new construction. Positive things from my experience: Puts client's best interest first, data driven, friendly and patient, prompt, he understood how new construction sales process worked inside out and leveraged his experience to my advantage. Leo was able to keep me sane and always showed positivity that made first home purchase process enjoyable and a good learning experience.
We cant thank Leo enough. He went above and beyond as our Realtor. He always responded immediately when we had questions, assisted us with his knowledge to get our house sale ready and helped us find buyers in a short period of time. He understood our challenges we had as a family relocating and customized everything based on our needs. We know if we ever sell a house again our first contact will be Leo.
Leo came to us with an unsolicited offer on our home in Oct 2020. It came at a perfect time when we had started thinking about selling. He was honest and knowledgeable and we ended up asking him to represent us as the seller as well. As the agent handling both sides of the deal, he was transparent and communicative through the entire process. He gave us immense peace of mind and got things done efficiently. I can't recommend Leo enough if you want a honest, efficient transaction with no fuss.
Leo helped us buy our first home and we are so glad we had him as our agent. Leo was very prompt in responding to our emails/texts. When we sent him listings we were interested in, he would always get back with the relevant information about those listings within a day! He booked several home tours for us (as there were no open houses due to COVID) and accompanied us to each one of them. He never pushed us to make a decision. Instead he provided us with the pros and cons of each house and helped with making competitive offers. He also built a great rapport with the seller's agents, which really helped with negotiations. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in the Bay Area.
Leo patiently worked with us for literally a decade before my family finally settled on a home we felt was perfect for us. Thank you for being a huge part of making this first-time home buying experience so great!
