WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
With Juan and Louise, our first-time home-buying experience was seamless. They spent the time to share and show us so many houses in a range of neighborhoods and styles. Though it took us a bit of time to find the right fit, Juan and Louise walked us through a rather competitive ask/offer environment in 2012. When we found the one, they were there every step of the way from negotiation and inspections to escrow and closing. By providing us with frank and practical advice, and helping us remember a home is also an investment, in the end, we got the perfect house for our needs at a great price. We'll be calling Juan and Louise for sure when we are next in the market.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Louise is a gem. Not only did she find us the perfect house in a difficult market, but she also fought day and night to make it ours. It was my first home purchase and her experience and expertise helped walk me through every step. She even managed to ease my anxiety through it all with her kind and calm nature. I can't recommend her enough.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
With my eye on one of the more desired condo developments here in Hollywood Louise helped steer and suggest options to ensure I get the place. Her experience and kindness really helped ease me into the purchase. Thank you so much, Louise. Do not hesitate to work with her team!

— Andrew P.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
As a first-time seller, I had a lot of trepidation regarding the process and what could be achieved. Juan and Louise guided me comfortably and patiently every step of the way, through the ups and downs in the housing market, ultimately selling my house at a great price. They are very responsive (a necessity with my crazy schedule), knowledgeable, and present themselves impeccably and professionally. They listened to my opinions and provided valuable input, enabling me to make sound decisions and offering great suggestions during negotiations, juggling multiple offers in my favor. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone

— Michael R.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I wish I could give Louise & Juan even more 'stars.' I first worked with Juan 2 years ago when I moved from NYC to LA. He understood what a picky NYer wanted and found the perfect apartment on the first shot. Two years later when it was time to buy my first house, I once again went looking at houses with Juan, he knew me so well, and the 5th house I saw that day is now mine. He & Louise were with me every step of the way, fought to get me the house after a counteroffer was made, helped me secure a terrific loan, inspectors, and handymen, and even helped to make sure an overlooked plumbing issue was fixed after I had moved in. Did I mention that it only took 30 days from when I first saw the house to the day I got the keys in my hands? Truly the absolute best in town!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Where do I start? I owe quite a lot to a close friend and incredible real estate agent, Louise Leach. My husband and two daughters and I were bursting at the seam in a house of 12 years that we had outgrown. Louise led us through the process of prepping, beautifying, staging our house, and guiding us around the streets of Los Angeles in hopes of finding our "dream home". She did quite a lot of behind-the-scenes prep work that was beyond the call of duty! She led us around various parts of Echo Park, Silverlake, and Eagle Rock in the hopes of finding a space that met our various specifications and a seller who'd be willing to take a "Contingency on Sale"- that is all our equity was held up in our house. If you don't already know, "contingencies" aren't the most seductive buyers! It was a rocky road as the market was at an unfriendly stretch and due to our monies being locked up in our house, we fell out of escrow THREE TIMES, (on the same Eagle Rock property we were hoping to purchase). Louise was AMAZING! We found the house that fit us perfectly but the closing was going to be difficult. The sellers were strapped for cash and were close to having to do a short sale. They had decided that if we didn't close before New Year, the house would be taken off the market and given to his Father to rent. The deadline was tight! There wasn't any room for ANY errors or delays. Louise pulled many "rabbits out of the hat", waved her magic wand, and with a lot of skill, dedication, and persistence helped us close on time. We moved into our new home, nestled in a sweet spot of Eagle Rock on New Year's Eve. What a way to celebrate! Thanks, Louise!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Louise helped me purchase my first home. Always available and helpful at every phase. The process almost took a year to find the right property and her patience and guidance were invaluable. I would highly recommend her services and in the event I upgrade, she'll be my first call.

— Marta W.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We cannot speak highly enough about the team of Juan and Louise. They are professional, personable, and extremely diligent. We are convinced their interactions with the seller helped sway the decision in our favor where there were multiple offers. We found out at 3 pm on Friday of a holiday weekend that our offer had been accepted and they had inspections lined up the next day. Additionally, they recommended a mortgage broker who could work within the 21-day escrow that was part of the deal. Their superb communication skills and attention to our unique needs made a potential bureaucratic nightmare a smooth and successful process.
