Thanks for taking the time to read my profile!

Although I've sold hundreds of homes over the years and consistently rank among the top 1% of all San Diego Agents, the thing I'm most proud of are the cards, letters, reviews and referrals I've received from my past clients. Many of whom have become dear friends. 2012 was the third year in a row that I was featured in San Diego Magazine as one of their Five Star Agents, an honor they bestow on only 3% of the Realtors in the area.

Many Real Estate Agents tout their foreclosure experience, but very few have bank clients and actually list REO properties. I do and it's through this direct experience with the banks that I'm able to navigate my clients through the very challenging foreclosure market that we're experiencing right now.

Whether you're interested in buying or sellin a home, please feel free to call me any time!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA.
    Leon was amazing! My Grandmother and her Sister were selling there home and Leon was there every step of the way to make sure They were getting the best deal and taken care. Leon went above and beyond when it came to taking care of us. He visited us multiple times throughout the process, got us a price above our asking price and made sure everything went smoothly. Other than that Leon is an amazing person with the biggest heart. Who is willing to do everything he can to make you feel comfortable confident and satisfied with the sale of your home. I highly recommend Leon as your real estate agent. He will not let you down. I plan to use Leon's services when it comes time to buy my own home.  MoreLess

    Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA.
    My husband and I recently sold our condo in San Diego with Leon and were incredibly pleased with the entire process. As a tenant was residing in the property, the process was a bit more complex and Leon was a crucial element in making the entire transaction seamless and easy. In addtion we had previously listed this property with 3 different realtors with no success. It is a testament to his ability and hard work that we able to successfully sell the condo. His combined knowledge of the area, engaging personality and real estate expertise provided an absolutely top-notch experience! My husband and I will definitely be using him for any future real estate transactions.  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2013.
    Leon has been my agent for almost two years, during which he helped me find and purchase a property in San Diego. It took so long because the number of homes for sale in this period was unusually low and because my requirements were rather difficult. I wanted a condo or townhome that I liked for myself but that would also serve me well as a rental unit. Moreover, I was willing to consider only a few locations in University City and Clairmont. However, I was not in a hurry and this long experience with Leon convinced me that he is an excellent and highly professional real estate agent. Despite my difficult requirements, Leon has always been patient and optimistic about my chances of finding the right property. He promptly e-mailed me any new relevant listings and, over time, he allowed me to visit dozens of properties. Whenever showing one, he was both interested and informative about the details of the unit: age of the water heater, quality of the plumbing under the sinks, the texture of the ceiling, and so on. He also helped me avoid potentially bad deals. In one instance, he provided evidence of widespread water intrusion and mold problems in a condominium complex that I was considering. In another instance, after placing an offer for a nice attached home, we discovered signs of water leaks from the roof, and Leon, drawing from his experience with similar issues, supported my choice of backing out from the deal. In the fall of 2013, I finally purchased a town-home that exceeded my expectations. In a period of high demand and low supply, Leon’s quick response following the initial listing was essential to ensure a successful deal. Indeed, Leon coordinated and executed in a timely manner the many steps involved in this purchase, from e-mailing me the listing, to submitting offers, addressing counter-offers, arranging home inspections, and facilitating the escrow process. Through Leon’s mediation I was even able to negotiate the price down a few percent. Also, he recommended a very good home inspector (HouseMaster) and he coordinated the clearing of the seller’s cluttered garage to allow a second inspection in search for water intrusion. Working with Leon for a long time allowed me to appreciate his professional qualities. He communicates with clients effectively, using e-mail, phone, and text messages as appropriate. He always replied to my emails according to their urgency. Nevertheless, he always kept interruptions to a minimum while showing properties for sale. Leon is very thorough and careful about details, as when listing acceptable escrow companies in a purchase offer, instead of leaving the choice to the seller. Leon consistently strives to make things easy for his clients. Once he stopped by my place to review and sign on offer, thus saving me a trip to his office. Later, he adopted DocuSign, an Internet-based service that greatly simplifies the signing of legal documents. He even gave me rides to the escrow company, when important milestones had to be reached. Leon wants the client to be happy with every aspect of the transaction. In fact, he continued to help me even after the close of escrow, offering quotes from his trusted contractors to re-carpet and re-paint the property, and following up on some jobs that seller’s agent promised as part of the sales contract. My overall experience with Leon makes me confident that he is one of the best agents in San Diego. He is hard-working, positive-minded, proactive, experienced, thorough, prudent, and honest. I am very glad that he helped me buy a home in San Diego, and I definitely recommend him to anyone as a real estate agent.  MoreLess
