Leara is the absolute best and a true pleasure to work with. She pretty much did everything needed when as I was selling my condo in San Francisco. She brought in contractors, staged the place, and consistence communication. She also is amazing at follow-up with prospective buyers. She is great, if I had to do it again I would choose Leara to represent my interests. I wish she could do it for all my future moves outside of San Francisco too! Expand please Leara :). Thank you again!

Leara was our agent while trying to find a house in San Francisco this past spring. Since the moment we met her, and even before we had committed, she started selecting properties for us and providing thoughtful and knowledgeable feedback on our choices. Once we agreed, she enlisted her resources to help us determine remodeling costs of prospective properties. She guided us through the whole crazy bidding process and when we finally won a bid, her help was critical through the closing process. I cannot recommend Leara high enough and if we ever have to sell or buy a property in SF, we will definitely have her as our agent.

– Christian F.

Leara was our agent for our recent home purchase. We were first-time homebuyers with three small children in this crazy San Francisco market. After losing out on a number of bids with another agent, we found leara. She helped us find a house that fit our family and our budget. She helped us understand what we needed to do to place the winning bid, helped us through the financing, and still continues to provide us with connections as we pursue some minor renovations. She was persistent, calm and always available for us. Can't recommend her more highly.

– Susan E.

Leara helped us find our perfect home (and also sold our San Francisco home above asking, incredibly quickly) Leara was always at the other end of the phone if we needed any advice, or to arrange home viewings and was super patient while we considered four different locations and dozens of possible homes in these areas - she can definitely be relied on for honest, un-biased opinions/advice and a super professional service and really friendly manner For sure contact Leara if you want someone who is really dependable and personable to handle what is one of the most significant purchases (and/or selling decisions) you make! (Leara came highly recommended to us) and we will definitely call upon her again when we next have purchasing/selling requirements

Leara was so helpful and patient with us as we searched for a home in San Francisco. She understood our budget and needs with young children and was available day and night to answer our questions. She navigated the contract and banking process for us and got us the best deals possible. We always felt that she has out best interest in mind. Even after we got our home she was a wonderful resource as to who to use for renovations to the home. I would highly recommend Leara to anyone looking for a home in SF, but who is also hoping for a kind and understanding agent. Leara actually made the home searching process simple and enjoyable and for that we are grateful.

Short version: Leara is competent, thorough and tenacious. Our experience was enlightening and successful. Longer version: Traditional logic and reason do not apply to the process of acquiring a home. The dynamic San Francisco market varies by district and will test one's emotional capacity. My wife and I worked with Leara to translate our parameters (i.e. size, budget, amenities, etc.) into an efficient search plan that steadied our emotions and struck pay-dirt. When the time came to make offers, her strategy was sound and follow-up diligent. The latter point resulted in an accepted bid without a bidding contest plus seller credits. We also benefited greatly from her impartial judgement whilst assessing the risks associated with disclosures and optional inspections.

We could not have asked for a better partner and guide in the home buying process. As first time home buyers, we were nervous, uncertain what exactly we wanted, and intimidated by the San Francisco market. Leara was incredibly patient with us, and throughout the process we felt like she was 100% committed to our best interests and willing to go the extra mile to help us find the best home for us. Leara is very knowledgable and proactive. She had a great understanding of the market in the areas we were interested in and through her connections was able to get us in to see several great off-market listings. She also has a great design/remodel sense and would share ideas for how we could update some of the homes we saw. Leara was always available for a chat or to view a home with us, and she put great effort into doing everything she could to make our offer as strong as possible. I think she has an unusual combination of being tenacious on our behalf but extremely calm and supportive to us. Also, having spent so much time with Leara during high stress moments in our lives, I can't understate the value of having a real estate agent who is just plain nice to be around. Leara was kind, fun, and warm throughout the process; I can't imagine having worked with anyone else.

– Victoria G.

Leara is without a doubt the most thoughtful and dedicated agent we've ever worked with. She listened to our needs and was constantly on the lookout for the best house. We looked at dozens of places, and she didn't miss a beat. In the end, we landed the perfect place -- we couldn't be happier and recommend Leara to anyone, buying or selling!

– Mike Z.

We had a great experience working with Leara - she just helped us close on a wonderful house in the crazy and competitive SF market. We met Leara at an open house and she immediately impressed us with her follow up and responsiveness. She quickly zeroed in on what we were looking for and sent us frequent listings to consider. When we decided to take another look at the property we eventually purchased, she accommodated our schedules and met us at convenient times. As first time home buyers, Leara helped us make smart and reasonable choices. When we found out that several offers were coming in with waived contingencies, she rushed to find a reliable inspector so we could properly and safely understand the home's areas of concern. She also advised us not to waive certain contingencies to ensure that we were properly protected. What we didn't realize was how much follow up and diligence is needed after you're in escrow. For that, Leara was invaluable at guiding us through the process of working with the title company and last minute addendums and negotiations. We highly recommend Leara and continue to seek her advice on the home (making some slight updates) and the area (preschools).

I can't even imagine how we would've managed navigating the San Francisco real estate market without Leara. For background: my husband and I are/were first-time home buyers with a limited budget and a long list of desires. To say we were challenging clients would likely be an understatement. Throughout our home search, Leara was patient yet proactive. She essentially held our hands through the entire process--she gave us feedback on all properties we inquired about, she did walk-throughs with us, helped uncover remodel potential and resale values and had an answer to just about every question one could think of when it comes to buying a home. While we were in escrow, she had great contacts for inspections and was flexible and always available by text, phone, email. Buying real estate in San Francisco is a seriously stressful endeavor, especially for newbies. Leara made it as stress-free as it possibly could be and I can gladly say she found the PERFECT home for us.

– Christine E.

We immediately clicked with Leara. Being new to the San Francisco market we were rather unsure of how to approach things, but with Leara's guidance we were able to obtain the house of our dreams. She was both attentive and proactive and made what could have been a hellish experience rather easy.
