Ratings & Reviews

During 2011 we looked at many of properties with Paul & JoAnn and made a few offers that did not work out. Then last fall a short sale property that was in a great location, but was a real fixer-upper came on the market. With Paul's help we were able to see the properties potential and decide that the work ahead was doable. Our offer was accepted and after five months the selling realtors were able to finally get the two banks involved to sign off. Although we still have a lot of work ahead of us we love the property. We would not now own this without Paul and JoAnn's help and encouragement. They are great!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $700K in Penngrove, CA.

Joann and Paul helped us to sell a home in a tough market. We were very impressed with the level of professionalism, customer service, honesty and knowedge of all aspects of the real estate business in Sonoma County. After leaving Sonoma County for one year we decided to return to the area. Due to our pevious experience we had with Joann and Paul Claeyssens, we called Leading Edge to help us find a new home. As we experienced during the sale of our past home, Joann was our best advocate. She found us a great home in a good area and at a SUPER price! The closing process was seamless and easy during both transactions. Joann also connected us with an excellent school for our son. If you are looking for a real estate professional that is caring, honest, hard working, well connected and looking out for your best interests I highly recommend Joann and Paul Claeyssens.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Petaluma, CA.

Our experience with Leading Edge Properties met our expectations to the highest degree possible.

The property we listed with them was unique and required intimate knowledge of the area and a broker with extensive experience.

The result could not have been more positive. The showings were perfectly hosted and the buyer is an ideal match.

Bought a home in 2011 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC 20001.

Leading Edge Property is a spectacularly good company. Paul and JoAnn provide extraordinary service. They are unbelievably focused on serving their clients needs. No task is too small for them to do. JoAnn took detailed, professional quality pictures of the inside of 5 houses that I considered.

Paul and JoAnn know the tools and rules of the real estate business. They gave me access to their invaluable list of independent contractors who have the expertise to do inspections from everything from a very complex structural and soils evaluation to a simple termite inspection. They stand right by your side. I asked them to be buyer's agents. I am so glad that I did. You feel that you have made a friend for life, a true advocate who is looking out for your interests.

They represented me as a buyer in one of the most difficult short sale transactions that you can imagine. They were devoted to achieving the best outcome for me. They were focused and smart. I would have given up many times, but for their support and brilliant mastery of strategy. JoAnn and Paul are experienced negotiators. When they are on your side, they give it their fullest effort and attention. They earned my respect and my highest rating.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Petaluma, CA.

We recently purchased a home in Petaluma that we absolutely love. JoAnn and Paul not only did a great job of finding us our new home but they did a superb job of handling the closing process. We had a lot of issues with the lenders in getting the loan approved because of the large acreage of the property. This was a very frustrating process for all of us but JoAnn and Paul managed to keep both side calm and cool so we can work the issues with the lenders. In parallel, they assembled a great team to help us with this process (e.g. lenders, escrow, well inspection, septic inspection, insurance, etc.). We had backup plan to a backup and at the end it all paid off. Over-all, this deal wouldn’t happen without their hard work and we are very happy that we picked them as our agents.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Petaluma, CA.

Paul (and JoAnn) Claeyssens worked tirelessly to sell our home. They demonstrated superior knowledge of the local real estate market. Throughout the entire process I always felt well informed. This was the first property we sold, and Paul taught great deal about the process of selling a home. I never felt neglected, and always felt as though I was their most important client even though our property probably was one of the least expensive they were selling. I obviously will use them again when it comes time to buy/sell a home, and recommend them unconditionally.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Petaluma, CA.

I give Paul the highest rating. He helped us buy our first home because when we started looking, I had emailed several different agents late one night and he was thf first one to respond. I spoke to other agents but none were as sincere, responsive, or experienced as Paul. He only showed us the best houses in our price range and though there were several offers on our house, Paul's creative strategies put us on top and we now live in our ideal house. I would reccomend Paul to anyone in the market for a reputable, conscientious, efficient real estate agent.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Novato, CA.

This was a great experience for me, Paul had the answers to all of my questions. He was always quick to respond to my email or phone call. He made it very easy to transition into owning my own property and I am very thankful. I will recommend Paul to anyone I know who is either selling or buying a new home. I will ask for him to help me again when I look to moving from my recently purchased one bedroom condo to purchasing a larger home in the future. Thanks Paul, you did a great job!!!!!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Windsor, CA.

Responded almost immediately to my initial request to start looking for homes and then did good searches for homes that met my needs. When it got down to the process of buying the home, he kept up and kept in front of the sellers agent so I had everything needed before it was even needed, thus helping them realize I was a serious buyer and to work efficiently. The people he works with were also great thus with Paul and the lender he works with, the deal was able to go through in about 3 weeks.

If you are looking for someone who is passionate and has a "make it happen" kind of attitude, then Paul is your agent. We were very lucky to have our first home buying experience with Paul. He paid attention to our likes and dislikes and didn't waste our time showing us homes we would have never been interested in. He was always prompt in returning calls and responding to emails which is always appreciated. Paul is a great person and if given the chance, he will help you find your dream home as he did with us!
