"A few months ago, we were so desperate in looking for a dream house in the Torrance hot seller market. We made 8 offers, kept our hope high until each offer review day and learned that we lost the bidding war. It was so stressful and our hearts broke so many times... Finally we met Lesli. The more we worked with her, the more we got convinced by her professionalism and her determination to help us to achieve our goal. Even when our offer on the house we love got rejected and we moved on to less desirable deals, she did not lose hope and still followed up with the seller. Miraculously, the 1st choice buyer for that house backed up and our  offer got accepted. Lesli never pushes us to buy but she gave us a very clear picture of the situation, thoughtfully analyzed  the deal and let us decide. Finally we bought the house with Lesli and it is one of the best decisions we made so far. She makes sure the closing process goes smoothly, answers all our questions timely and clearly. Lesli follows up with her heart warming emails and presents after we moved in. She becomes a trusted friend of my family, always there for all our real estate needs. Lesli and her team not only earned our best 5 stars rating but also our hearts. I highly recommend Lesli as one of the best real estate agents you can possibly find."Andrew Truong

"I highly recommend you use Lesli as your realtor. She always kept us well informed and on point with action items.

Leslie helped us sell our home, by arranging for great photos of the space and a targeted marketing campaign, we sold in less than a week, at a price way above what we could imagine!

Leslie helped us by our dream home. In a competitive buyers market she negotiated on our behalf and was able to agree a great price and reasonable terms that everyone was happy with!

5 stars for all round a job well done and she is lovely too! Leslie took good care of us throughout the process and was supportive of the stress and financial challenges of buying and selling your home.
"Charlotte Nelson

"We cannot thank Lesli enough for helping make our dream a reality! In an insanely cutthroat market, she helped us get a home we didn’t imagine we could. She also had the patience of a saint, showing us more houses than I can count. Lesli was very knowledgeable and helped us feel at ease every step of the way. It is evident how much she truly cares about her clients and has their best interest in mind."Kristin Kientz

"Lesli was everything I hoped for in a realtor – patient, knowledgeable, communicative, and responsive.

I feel so fortunate to have had Lesli by my side during the home buying process. As a first-time home buyer, the process was a little bit overwhelming. Lesli educated and advised me along the way and provided me with great resources to make sure I was well prepared to make my dream of home ownership a reality.

It was important to me to find a home in a location that would give my son access to top-notch schools. Lesli patiently helped me explore areas of interest and worked tirelessly to help me find my dream home.

When we found “the one”, Lesli was able to advise me on ways to strengthen my offer for a better chance of acceptance, which is critical in this highly competitive market.

Finally, Lesli kept everything on track, clearly communicating through the entire process, even helping me to close early.

I can’t recommend Lesli highly enough!

"For a first time buyer, entering the home market in the Los Angeles area is difficult. The only part that was easy was working with Lesli to find our home! She is always available and ready to help. You wanna see a house, she’ll try to arrange it today. You wanna do a day-long tour of houses, she’ll graciously take you all over town and buy you lunch.

Lesli listens and remembers what you say like no other. She looks at each house as if looking through your eyes, all while giving gentle guidance that comes from her experience and expertise. As a previous reviewer stated, the home-buying process doesn’t really start until after your offer has been accepted. It was at this point, Lesli proves she’s a super woman. She makes sure you’re aware of the process, listens patiently when you’re frustrated with that process, and fervently advocates for your best interests.

We were extremely lucky to have met Lesli and will most definitely ask for her assistance in our next home move.

"Our dream of moving to the beach for retirement was a long held hope. We started the journey by casually going to open houses in the south bay. Through this process we met Lesli Koonts. If the dream was to move, we can truly say, Lesli made the reality of buying and selling our home amazing. Leslie is knowledgeable in understanding the market, the sale and purchasing process, and how to keep the process moving forward.

Our purchase included her selflessly showing us so many houses. We would call and she would set up a walk through, often the next day. She provided her insight but did not try to lead us to a purchase. Early on she made it clear she was supporting us, not selling us a house.She wanted us to find the house that would be, “our happy place.” After many showings, we settled on a house in Huntington Beach.

Selecting a house is not the end of the story. The purchasing of a home is a complex and cumbersome process. Leslie was very professional with informing us along the way, making sure we were clear of the purchasing process and when needed, she was tenacious on our behalf.

We did not put our selling home up for sale until we were well into the final stages of the purchase. By this time we knew Lesli was a great agent and asked her to be the listing agent on our home sale. She went above and beyond to allow our home to be seen at its best. There were multiple listings, a 360 degree tour and a website that you found by simply searching our address. She has a background in marketing and this was evident by the overwhelming response we had. The home was on the market four days before we accepted an offer. The neighbors described the tours as “a parade with people just waiting to see” This was a daily parade, each day receiving offers which Lesli would review with us and help us evaluate. The offer we settled on was well over the asking price and set the high mark for homes in the neighborhood. Lesli was equally professional and supportive in the selling process as well.

Buying our home and selling our home for a good price with little stress was due to Lesli’s ability and commitment to us as clients. Her kindness, care and concern are evidence of her wonderful character and personality. She listened to our needs, made sure she understood us and in the end was always concerned that we would be happy with the results and process. We are so fortunate to have met Lesli and would recommend her to anyone, without hesitation and with enthusiasm!
