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 want to see a house, she'll try to arrange it today. You want to 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 we'll 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 Koontz. If the dream was to move, we can truly say, Lesli made the reality of buying and selling our home amazing. Lesli 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 walkthrough, 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. Lesli 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!

Nathan and I cannot believe how incredibly lucky we are to have had the opportunity to work with you! We want to thank you for being our advocate and helping us get our dream home. It was such a pleasure and a breeze working with you. We could not have done it without you. We will never forget how awesome it was to work with you and the positive impact you had on this journey of ours. I hope we get to work together again in the future. Thank you!
—Bree and Nate
I just wanted to thank you for the guidance you offered my clients Nathan and BreeAnna and to say how nice it was and what a breath of fresh air when you showed concern about dual representation. I have to say that was the first time in many years that an agent has not been focused on the money but rather what is truly best for all parties involved.
Lesli recently assisted us in the purchase of our dream home in PV Estates. She's very professional and trustworthy. She's a great listener who personalized her services to our needs and always went above and beyond to help in any way she could. Lesli makes herself available day, night, weekdays, weekends, and is super responsive. She's quickly become like family to us, and I know we will stay in touch and that we will go to her when we eventually need an upgrade. We feel confident recommending her without reservation to our family and friends.

I had the pleasure of working with Lesli over the course of a few years when she was my account manager at Angels baseball. She thinks creatively, communicates clearly and effectively, and has strong negotiation skills. The opportunities she brought to the table were truly game-changing for our company. Her care for her clients and her willingness to go the extra mile set her apart from others. You can count on Lesli to hit the ball out of the park for you.

As a Realtor in Arizona working with many second-home buyers and sellers, it's important to build a network of other top agents around the globe.

I have known Lesli for close to fifteen years. She, like me, is a working mom, and we connected instantly. We understood the joys and challenges of balancing family and work life. Lesli’s commitment and follow through on every task she took on inspired me, and she soon became one of my go-to people... Read more
