We loved working with Leslie to buy our first home. From the moment we called her (which was later in the evening!), she got back to us right away and helped guide us through the entire process. She helped turn the very daunting steps of buying a home into a digestible, helpful and awesome journey. Leslie was particularly helpful in the inspection process, reminding us what was important to focus to make sure we maximized what the sellers covered. She answered all of our questions/calls/e-mails/texts promptly, and made sure we were taken care of when it was time to close the deal. Leslie will have your back, from making sure your offer stands out to making sure you get your new house cleaned before move in. Leslie rocks!
Leslie was great to have as an agent: professional, knowledgeable, honest, courteous and caring. Her response time to any inquiry was phenomenal. She conscientiously guided my husband and myself through the selling process of our home. Our house sold very fast and everything went off very smoothly. I highly recommend Leslie.
I have now purchased two properties with Leslie as my agent, and think she is fantastic real estate agent. She knows the LA market, she knows all the best negotiating angles, and she never gets flustered. If you want to buy or sell a home in LA you would foolish to not consider using Leslie as your agent!
Leslie is an amazing real estate agent. Very professional ! She was extremely patient with me and my tenants . She sold my house in 3 days in 2019 . She also sold another house for me in 2015 , also in 3 days!

Leslie is the best agent we have ever had! She scheduled meetings at our convenience. She knows HOW to promote a house!!!! She kept us informed and provided excellent advice for promoting the sale of the house. The house sold so FAST, and for more than we had hoped for!!!! She answered all of our questions immediately! It was an absolute pleasure working with Leslie! We highly recommend Leslie to EVERYONE!! THANK YOU LESLIE!!!
Leslie was the perfect balance of knowledge, patience and integrity. I never felt pressured by her in the slightest. Having moved from across country, I relied on her heavily to guide us through the process of finding a home in Los Angeles. She worked with me tirelessly over a period of months. Her communications with me and my family were professional and timely. She is extremely poised and I trusted her to represent our best interest. In the end, she came through and now we are living in a dream home! We are especially grateful and highly recommend her.
We recently sold our home in Los Angeles. When we decided to sell, the most important decision we had to make was, which realtor? Leslie Romenesko was highly recommended by a good friend. Listing with Leslie Romenesko was the smartest thing we ever did! She not only showed great expertise in her quick and precise approach to property readiness and sale but helped us in every other way by keeping us informed every step of the way so that we understood the complicated procedure which required great skill and knowledge and experience. The entire process took just 60 days. We recommend her services to anyone interested in selling property. Should the occasion arise in the future for us to buy or sell, Leslie will be our FIRST CALL.
Leslie is both professional and courteous with a shrewd head for business. She was really helpful during a particularly stressful sale and kept me informed throughout the process.
Leslie is an amazing real estate agent. She was extremely patient and diligent in helping us find our dream home. She kept things in perspective and made sure we stayed focused on what we wanted most. She was on top of every detail had our back the entire way. She was a shrewd negotiator during the escrow process, securing us several credits. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who needs help finding a house or selling a house in Los Angeles!
I met Leslie when I stumbled into an open house many years ago. We stayed in touch, but she never did the "pushy agent" game. A few years later, when I was ready to buy, I gave her a call. We looked at a variety of homes in my price range, and just when I thought I'd never find something affordable and quality, she surprised me with a gem. I've lived there for 6 years now. Leslie made the purchasing process seamless, recommended various service companies (plumbers, electricians, contractors, etc). and made the process so easy. The next home I buy will be through Leslie. Cannot recommend her enough. The ultimate professional real estate agent.
Leslie is fantastic! Buying a house is incredibly stressful. Leslie was a great, trustworthy partner throughout the process. I always felt she had my best interest at heart. She has good judgement, she’s honest and is not afraid to address tough issues head on. I recommend her to all of my friends. She will be my real estate representative for life!
Leslie was a phenomenal agent in helping us navigate through the nerves and fear of first time home buying. Never pushy and always supportive, she got us a simply incredible deal on a dream home we really didn’t think we had a shot at. She’s a shrewd negotiator and always had our best interests in mind. She’s also very knowledgeable about everything from financing options to design and contractor questions. To boot, she’s one of the more honest realtors I’ve ever met. I come from a background in real estate and felt completely and totally at ease trusting Leslie in helping us get into a deal we both felt comfortable with and were extremely excited about. We couldn’t have done it without her.
The way I met Leslie was that a distant friend who lived next door to someone who was having an open house told me to go over and have a look, so I did. It was a great place, three stories, roof garden and studio, and I especially liked the folding window between the kitchen and the brick patio; but no, these weren’t the ratios I needed. What I did need, though, was a real estate agent who said, “Why don’t you come into the office this week and we’ll talk about what you want.” No kidding, a concept meeting? It may sound simple, but of all the agents I had so far worked with, Leslie was the only one who had suggested it. It was a look-no-further moment (for an agent, anyway). I mean, granted, there’s always an element of destiny in any real estate equation, but there’s also no doubt that working with someone like Leslie, who knows the specs on both sides of the sale, has exceptionally good taste, good judgment and impeccable manners, and who stays on top of the paperwork and the listing agents and the bankers and the escrow people because you can’t because you’re busy, you know, earning the money to buy the damn place, working with Leslie puts a person and her real estate destiny in much closer quarters. Anyway, after not too many weekends looking at places that were always terrific in some way because Leslie doesn’t bother showing you anything but what you want, cut to me in my new loft, infatuated with unheard of dimensions of light and space, not to mention unimagined varieties of dishwasher cycles. Besides being grateful for not seeing any more boxes, I’m totally grateful to have run into the distant friend who lived next door to Leslie’s open house.
Some things are just meant to be. My wife and I started working with Leslie when my wife’s business trip got canceled and because of that change in plan, we have our house. She showed us a few houses based on what we liked, but then came the fixer upper. I don’t know what my wife saw in it, but she had a vision. Leslie helped us find our dream home fast and get us a great deal. The process moved very quickly with her guidance and expertise. She was very patient with us, talked us through the whole process and provided us a great education on home buying. She’s down to earth, friendly and straightforward with you and works hard for her clients. When it comes time to sell our house, Leslie will be the one to make it happen.
A friend of mine referred me to Leslie and I couldn't be happier. My circumstance was a bit different in that my entire house buying transaction was handled long distance. Leslie made the whole process easy and stress free. She was encouraging and confident every step of the way and made sure my interests were top priority. I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone that is either looking to sell their home or buying a new home. I totally lucked out in getting the best realtor in LA!
Manna from heaven! Leslie has been an exceptional agent extremely professional, easy to work with, and always, always on top of what is happening. She assisted Mark and I for the past year until we finally purchased our first home. We looked at multiple listings and put in 8+ offers in a very 'low inventory' and demanding market. Leslie was always pleasant and positive, never 'pushy', and available to answer every question we had, at each step. She made the whole process very manageable until we found the right place. In the end, we got our dream home and a great friend. We would quickly turn to her for our next home and we have no reservations to recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in Los Angeles. She has been great!!
Leslie is an expert real estate agent. During the process of selling our house, we had so much confidence in her. We totally trusted her. She gave us good advice on preparing our house for the market. Whenever we had a question, she responded right away. The entire process, right through escrow, went smoothly.
Leslie Romenesko was an absolute delight to work with. From the moment of the decision to sell my home through to the final sale, she was professional, creative, empathetic, and completely trustworthy. Since I travel a lot for work, Leslie was able to step in to manage repair work, staging ideas, and even the relocation of my furniture. She handled every associated step along the way, from dealing with handymen to movers to designers, with finesse and class and expediency. One of the most amazing things about Leslie is her calm and even demeanor. I would only work with Leslie to buy and sell properties in Los Angeles. She is awesome.
"Who can sell a home during the COVID-19 pandemic? Leslie can! Despite enormous instability in the housing market, changes in mortgage qualifications and uncertain home appraisal rates, we closed a sale on our home above asking price. Hurray to Leslie for a successful ending of this roller coaster ride - house sale. This was a testament to Leslie’s personal integrity, clear thinking and quick and elegant decision making. It was a pleasure to work with you, Leslie!"
Leslie was awesome to work with. In the depths of COVID, she was highly respectful of our space during this unique environment. She took a creative approach to marketing the condo, using high quality photography, a virtual walk-thru, plus video. She was always available to connect through the process including many evenings. She became an excellent sounding board through negotiations of the offer and the entire closing process, often walking the fine line of pushing the buyers but not scaring them away. I was always impressed with her attitude, her advice, her professionalism and very much valued her partnership through a deal that was not always easy.
We reached out to Leslie on a lark after we saw one of her mailers advertising two of her recent sales in our building. She proved time and time again that her earlier success was not a fluke. Leslie approached our sale with a strong concept of the property's relative worth and the marketing materials that should accompany it. Leslie really impressed us in the interval between receipt of our first offer and closing. She had an incredibly strong procedural vision for our sale that helped us navigate a fickle buyer, issues with our building at large, and the whims of the marketplace. Always sharp and highly communicative, Leslie is exactly the agent you want on your side. She advocated for us at every turn.
Leslie and her team were great to work with!! She is knowledgeable, kind, level-headed, and patient. As a first-time seller, my experience was as easy and stress-free as one could hope for. I lived in my West Hollywood studio for 10 yrs before moving to Northern California. Then, I turned it into a successful long-term vacation rental. But after a few years of managing that from afar, I was ready to sell. I had lots of questions about the process. Leslie offered top-notch advice about upgrades and counters and when someone needed to be physically onsite for various reasons, she / someone on her team stood in for me. If you're looking for an agent you can trust will have your back, call Leslie Romenesko!
She's incredibly trustworthy, honest and will advise you on the best ways to maximize the sale price for your property. She has represented us for two home purchases and two sales and in all four cases, her steady hand allowed us to get the best deal possible. Her masterful knowledge of the marketplace allowed us to price at exactly the right place to give us the opportunity to earn top dollar, and that's why we ended up receiving over asking offers in both cases.
Leslie and her entire team were exceptional. From the beginning of the search all the way through close, the experience was seamless, professional, and fun. My fiance and I were first time homebuyers and knew very little about the process prior to working with Leslie. She helped set expectations, was incredibly responsive, and was able to guide us through every step of the way. In the search process, she was able to quickly grasp what type of home we were looking for, our price range, guide us around which properties to see, and quickly get us into any home that was a potential fit. During the offer period she guided us at every step, and was able to help us win on an extremely competitive, multiple offer home. The close process was super efficient, and Leslie and her team were knowledgeable and a great support every step of the process. We will be recommending Leslie to any friend or family member buying in LA! It was a wonderful experience working with her and her team.
Leslie’s style is kind, direct, & realistic, honed by her professional experience, natural intelligence, & warm patience. We learned that the tone of negotiations in this process vary with each step. We had top notch representation every step of the way, as Leslie expertly balanced the delicacy of the buyer/seller relationship with our needs & goals at the forefront. Her team is professional & equally great. Leslie listened to our needs and landed us our dream home. 5 stars. Highly recommend.
I cannot recommend Leslie highly enough. She is extremely knowledgable, responsive and highly capable. She helped us find and buy our first condo and walked us through every ounce of the process so we felt well taken care of every step of the way. Then, 8 years later, she helped us sell the same condo (for twice the purchase price and we closed escrow within 30 days of it going on the market!) and, once again, Leslie was there to go above and beyond with advice and support. We can't imagine working with someone more capable or lovely.
As a first time home buyer in Los Angeles I quickly learned that relationships were critical in making a deal. After losing out on multiple offers with another agent due to being outbid, Leslie helped me close the deal on my new home. She was a pleasure to work with and there's no doubt her demeanor was well received by the sellers. She also successfully helped me get some credits off the price. I would highly recommend using Leslie.
Leslie Romenesko is hands-down the best real estate agent ever! She has a remarkable capacity to handle any issue that can possibly arise in a real estate transaction with enthusiasm, elegance, and ease in order to achieve the quickest possible resolution. Not only did Leslie handle the sale of my property last year and all the associated elements from repairs to preparation to staging, but she also helped me find the next home of my dreams this year. Once found, she worked around the clock to make sure that it took less than a month to close. Since I was overseas for most of that month, she covered every detail from inspections to escrow and trust, to collaborating with my designer and contractor. I have complete trust in her judgement, business sense, and sheer ability to get things done. She is also a wonderful person and an absolute joy to work with.
