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. 2015 was the sixth 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 selling a home, please feel free to call me any time!

Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I hired Leon to sell our home in University City. We had previously listed the property with another realtor for 3-4 months with no luck. Leon impressed me right away with his knowledge of the neighborhood and his marketing strategies. By the time he organized his first open house, he had 4 or 5 or 6 offers, which resulted in selling the house for well more than the asking price. Leon is absolutely phenomenal at his business, and he has our unequivocal endorsement.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Clairemont Mesa West, San Diego, CA.

We are so grateful for Leon! He made the stressful buying process as smooth as possible. Leon has a very relax but extremely professional demeanor that guided us through the process step by step. We had to meet a tight timeline from out of town and the market was not buyer friendly. He was willing to meet us early on weekend and always one text or phone call away! It was our first home and we learned so much from him. At the end, we found a great property and he negotiated such a great price for us that our place was appraised above final closing price. Even after the purchase, he offers his help to coordinate repairs and help us find a great deal with painters. All and all, we felt that he went ABOVE AND BEYOND servicing us. I can see us using him for all future property related services. Thank you Leon :) Yvonne and Michelle  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $575K in Clairemont Mesa West, San Diego, CA.

Leon Dienes just sold my parents' home in the desirable Mt. Streets location of Clairemont. He carefully and caringly walked me through each phase of readying the house that had been lived in for 40 years. He was a valued advisor in determining which improvements and repairs would be most important in order to maximize the value of the home. He kept us on track so we could move the property on the market within a time frame that had a small inventory of homes on the market, conducted an open house that resulted in an offer after only being on the market for one week and carefully negotiated with the buyer. Anyone who has been through the loss of both parents within two years of each other and is dealing with cleaning out 40 years of memories and valuable documents knows how difficult this process can be. Leon was always there for us, kept in touch while we readied the house, returned calls within an appropriate time frame, even loaned me his saw to cut down closet doors after recarpeting and gave me valuable sources for contractors in order to make the necessary improvements. He is totally trustworthy, open, kind and hard working. He goes above and beyond in order to close the sale quickly. Years ago I used another broker from the neighborhood to sell my house and the service was terrible. I was lucky to meet Leon as he walked the neighborhood one morning and recognized him from his recipe cards that came to my parents' home. I spoke with him for a quite a while and could see that he was the most knowledgeable realtor in the area. But more importantly, he proved to be of high integrity and so dedicated to our home sale that I felt as if I were his only client. I know consider him a trusted friend that I can rely on in the future. I would highly recommend that you use Leon to have the best results for buying or selling a home.  More Less
