Client Testimonials

★★★★★
"Leslie was amazing to work with. She was referred by our longtime realtor who had transitioned to sell side activity only. It was a great referral because the limited inventory and significant variations between communities was very challenging. We were uncertain where to settle and considered an area from Oakland Hills to Brentwood. Huge variation, but Leslie was familiar with the areas and did extensive research when necessary. We have not seen an agent as detailed in her research which comes from past experience and education. We quickly eliminated Oakland when we saw 30% overbids as standard practice. As we looked, Leslie suggested a small community we had not considered and it ended up being the perfect fit. There was very limited inventory so Leslie prepared us so when a home became available that we were very interested in we were able to make a competitive offer and acquire the home. We will definitely use Leslie for future transactions because of her thoroughness, her interest in acting in our best interests, and her patience with an emotional process." Buyers - December, 2021

"Choosing Leslie as your realtor will be one of the best decisions you make. I mean this wholeheartedly, we feel so lucky we found Leslie Lomond. She’s not your average realtor; she deeply cares about her clients and spends a great deal of effort to ensure they find the right home - she even talked us out of a few homes because she found things we would have overlooked! She has extensive knowledge about the market and the competitive buying process. Without her we would still be making bids and facing rejection. If you are a first-time homebuyer you will REALLY appreciate having Leslie on your team. She educated us about the entire process. She thoroughly inspected every home we toured, she took the time to walk us through the disclosure packets, helping us understand how to prioritize which items to action first, and she even provided us with recommendations on local service providers that she knows do reputable jobs. She was also there during all our inspections and for the appraisal, making sure we were well represented. She really cares. Helping people find homes is not a transaction, it’s her passion. We closed a few weeks ago and she still checks in on us and provides us with general home ownership advice. I can’t imagine going through this process with anyone else. We will continue to recommend Leslie to all our friends and family!" Buyer, Orinda - August 2021

★★★★★
"I can’t thank Leslie enough for helping us buy our dream home. Her knowledge of the Lamorinda area is immense. She is well connected with other local agents and is very well respected. Leslie knows all the local real estate and property laws, ordinances and rules. She is honest and always had our best interests in mind during every step of the buying process. She is genuinely friendly and has a great sense of humor to boot. I not only had a great realtor but found a welcoming friend. Thank you Leslie for everything." Buyer, Orinda - June 2021

★★★★★
"Leslie was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad/lucky/thankful to have received that recommendation. We had been on the house hunt for a couple of months with another reality company and we were having no luck. Even in the tough market we just did not feel supported. As soon as we started working with Leslie everything changed, the house hunter was easier, we had a better understanding of our options and we felt supported. We have nothing but wonderful things to say and would highly recommend Leslie to anyone house hunting!" Buyer, Moraga - May 2021

★★★★★
"Leslie did a fantastic job selling our property and far exceeded our expectations. From beginning through closing, Leslie and her team did a wonderful job. The staging and photography she included were gorgeous, which was so important when listing a home during Covid. Leslie was there every step of the way, she is extremely professional and thorough with the information she provided us. Thank you Leslie!"

★★★★★
"Working with Leslie was a fantastic experience. We purchased a home with Leslie. We felt that she really got to know us personally while looking at properties, and listened to what we were looking for. She was very communicative with us regarding any property of interest. Looking for housing in the time of COVID was no easy feat, but Leslie made it as seamless as possible by constantly offering to drive by properties and give us her take on the immediate location etc. before we spent too much time on them; and reviewing disclosures with us for those we were very interested in before touring, so we didn’t have to tour them unnecessarily in this uncertain time if we discovered something we didn’t like.

The bidding process for the house we got went very smoothly. Leslie spent a large amount of time going over all of the details of the bidding process with us to make sure we were comfortable with everything. We also felt like she was very informed on what it would take to get a good outcome, and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase.

"Leslie helped me find my new home in Moraga, CA. In getting to know Leslie, I must say she is a true professional, who loves real estate, and prides herself in helping her clients. She is passionate about her profession and is extremely thorough and patient in explaining the process, paperwork, etc. Leslie was very responsive and always available when needed. I highly recommend her services." - Buyer, Moraga June 2020

★★★★★
"Leslie was amazing! We could tell that she was genuinely interested in getting us into the perfect house for us. She was respectful of our desires and budget. We couldn't imagine going through this major life event with anyone else by our side. If our friends or family are looking for a house in the area, we will surely recommend Leslie to them."

★★★★★
"Leslie Lomond is an amazing realtor! She was organized, detailed and patient throughout the entire home buying process. My husband met Leslie while he was looking at homes in the Bay Area during a work trip. We were looking to move from Seattle. We searched for a few months and were flying back and forth from Seattle to the Bay Area searching for a house that fit our needs. Leslie was VERY knowledgeable of the area and was able to give us reliable information everywhere we looked. She was patient and kind as we changed our minds on location (more than once) and really gave great advice once we started putting in offers. We found the PERFECT house for our family - and she was an amazing teammate during the entire process. I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone searching for a home in the area. She's amazing!"

★★★★★
"Leslie was one of the kindest, most honest, and personable agents you can ever find. She listened and kept our wants and needs in mind always. Through the twists and turns of home buying, she always made sure our interests came first. She is extremely detail-oriented, organized, and goes above and beyond in accommodating us. She would always point out things we should pay close attention to as first time home buyers. She made us feel that we were truly guided and assisted to find our dream home. We look forward to working with Leslie again in the future and would definitely recommend her to people we know."

★★★★★
"Leslie Lomond is terrific! She is one of the most thorough and dedicated agents I have ever worked with! I met Leslie through an online inquiry in 2017. I wanted to move back to the Bay Area from Nevada and was just beginning my search.Over the next six months I really got to know Leslie. As I searched hundreds of properties online, hopped on last minute flights to see them, lost out on a number of properties (through NO fault of Leslie’s I should add!), Leslie was tireless in not only her professional support, research and analysis, but her kind emotional support through this exhausting process. After a hiatus of a number of months I decided to begin my search again. Leslie could not have been more positive and welcoming when I contacted her! I made a trip up and again, sadly, no luck. Soon after getting back to Las Vegas, the right property became available! At long last! Leslie’s attention to detail, care and true concern for her clients’ interests was apparent throughout the whole buying process. I’m so grateful she was in my corner! I can not recommend Leslie Lomond more highly."

★★★★★
"Leslie invested a lot of time with me to find me a home in the Bay Area. She took the effort to view properties and surrounding areas before showing them to me to evaluate if it is a decent property and investment. She is very professional in her demeanor and written communication, timely in her communication, transparent and honest. Her strong interest in her work is apparent as you work with her."

★★★★★
"Leslie recently helped me buy a condo in the very competitive Walnut Creek market. I am a first time home buyer. Leslie made sure I felt comfortable throughout the whole process. We actively searched for a month until we found the perfect condo. There were 9 offers including mine and Leslie made sure my offer stood out. I put my bid and got the condo on my first try! Unheard of! Even after closing, Leslie makes herself available for questions. I would say Leslie is more of a friend than just an agent. The best part is Leslie will give you binders with all your documents printed and a USB with the saved documents for easy access when you need to review. Overall, I would recommend Leslie to anyone looking to buy in the Bay Area due to her responsiveness and knowledge of the area."

★★★★★
"Leslie and I started talking over a year and a half ago when I was looking to relocate from the mid-peninsula to the Walnut Creek area. During that expanse of time I looked at hundreds of properties and spoke to several realtors. When I finally made the commitment to move and look for a home, I ultimately chose Leslie as my realtor and I’m glad I did. Leslie has a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding communities and a good understanding of the ever changing market. She is accommodating and extremely professional. She shepherded me through the entire home buying process and made it painless because she was always on top of all the steps required to close. Ultimately I ended up with the home of my dreams and feel I received an excellent value for my money. This is all due to Leslie; her superb negotiation skills, attention to detail and professional integrity. Oh, and she is kind. I recommend her highly."

★★★★★
"I strongly recommend Leslie. She and her team at Alain Pinel Realtors, Orinda did an exceptional job listing and helping us sell our home. We had a complex process starting with remodel all the way through closing. Lafayette, CA is a very competitive market. Her guidance, local knowledge, attention to detail and commitment to supporting us were key to our success. Her personal contribution is truly appreciated. We have moved nine times. Leslie has set a new standard in excellence for what we will expect from all future realtors."

★★★★★
"We were referred to Leslie by some good friends of ours who had recently worked with her. Like our friends, our experience with Leslie was overwhelmingly positive and professional from start to finish. We came to her as first-time home buyers and definitely had a lot to learn. Leslie was incredibly helpful and supportive of us from the very beginning. We were so appreciative of her honesty and straightforwardness, but never once did we feel pressured or intimidated. She went above and beyond to get to know us, understand what we were looking for, and to get us any and all information to help us make informed decisions. We truly felt like Leslie had our best interests at heart, and was rooting for us every step of the way. We could not have asked for a better realtor to have worked with, from both a personal and professional level."

★★★★★
"We met Leslie at an open house when we were casually exploring the housing market as first time home buyers. The moment we began speaking with her, we just clicked and we knew we wanted her to help us find our dream home. The home buying process was very intimidating for us as first time buyers, however Leslie did a wonderful job of helping us navigate the rocky waters. There were many times where we wanted to see a home but our schedules were hard to align and she went out of her way to show the home to us at odd hours of the day/night. She gave us a ton of information about the market and house buying process and was extremely patient as we learned. Getting approved for our loan was another beast in itself. We had initially gone with another lender who had us chasing our tails for weeks when we finally decided to let them go and go with the lender Leslie recommended. As soon as we jumped ship everything started to move so much quicker for us and the professional, she recommended was amazing at their job. Leslie helped us find our dream home in our dream neighborhood with amazing schools! She loves what she does and is always available to help with advice, vendor recommendations, and much more. By the end of our journey, Leslie was no longer just our agent, but also our dear friend. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is trying to purchase a home!”

★★★★★
"Having Leslie as an agent was like having an experienced friend helping you through the process. As first-time home buyers, we needed a lot of help with the mechanics of buying a house: reading & understanding disclosures, preparing & making an offer, reaching out to the right people at the right time, etc. And Leslie was a wonderful help; she put us in contact with tradespeople, walked us through technical documents, talked with our lenders, and helped with all the befuddling things that is the home buying process. On the flip side, she was the perfect degree of hands-off as well. We decided, without pressure from Leslie, what houses we liked, how much we wanted to offer for them, what contingencies we were and weren't willing to waive, etc. In essence, we had the time and freedom to figure out our preferences, and Leslie was patient throughout. Finally, Leslie works incredibly hard -- you can expect responses even when she's out of town -- and is incredibly organized. If you do or don't like something about a home and tell Leslie about it, she'll never recommend to you another house with that feature. We really appreciated her help. Cliche but true: we couldn't have done it without her."
