I would like to thank Lee Markus for helping me with the purchase of my second home. He was referred to me by a good friend who had worked with him previously. Lee Markus is an active listener, very accessible, and extremely understanding. He worked hard to ensure me and my family found a home that was feng shui and met all the other parameters I was looking for in a home. Thank you Lee Markus & thank you for now working with my brother in helping him find his first home.

Bought a home in 2012 in South Corona, Corona, CA 92882.

I have actually worked with Lee Markus two times. The first was to buy a condo as I was a bachelor. The second purchase was for a house that my wife and I could call home. Both times I was very impressed by Lee Markus and his work ethic, high level of professionalism, and his overall expertise. He was very accessible throughout our entire transaction. Some of the homes we were looking at in the Corona area had additional fees outside of the HOA fees that you don't traditionally find in other neighborhoods. Lee Markus always conducted the research to help us make a very informed decision. I recall one of the houses we were considering had an additional fee that would have amounted to over $4,000 per year and this did not include the property taxes. Ouch! He recommended an excellent home inspector who provided us with a report that same day. Lee Markus used his professional expertise to help us decipher the inspection report and whether or not that was a cause for concern. Many Thanks Lee Markus from the Surujbhans.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2010 for approximately $575K in South Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA.

After speaking to Lee Markus, I decided I would make my first home purchase a 4-unit apartment complex. Even though it is competitive out there with all cash investors, it is possible for the regular individual like myself with a conventional loan to also get in on an investment. I appreciated Lee Markus' experience as not just a Broker/REALTOR but also as homeowner and landlord himself. Today I am actually making a profit for every month that goes by! Thanks Lee!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Fontana, CA.

I’ve come to realize that buying a home can be a very trying and stressful process especially if one is not accustomed to such an involved endeavor. Along the way, Lee Markus was true to his profession. His extraordinary knowledge helped me along through the entire process from start to finish. When I had questions or was not sure of something, he was always more than willing to take the time to answer questions and put my mind at ease as he was obviously, truly conscience and well aware that his clients are not just simply investing in a short term purchase, but rather a potential lifetime investment. Having said that, if I had to do it all over again, I would NOT hesitate to seek his valuable real-estate knowledge and skills in helping me along once again. With this testimony, I would whole-heartedly, without hesitation, recommend him to anyone currently in the market in purchasing a home. Part of life is the ability to minimize one’s stress level----- he, without a doubt, did just that!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $400K in West Covina, CA.

We have sincere respect for Lee Markus who represented us in the purchase of our home. I actually found him online when inquiring about a property and my wife and I started working with him from there. He was very professional, provided solid advice during the entire process, and helped facilitate us purchasing our home using a VA Loan. He recommended a good lender who also helped make the process smooth. Thank you Lee Markus, from the Barajas Family!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Fontana, CA.

I was very apprehensive about the purchase of a home. Lee Markus took the time to understand my concerns and the expectations I had. He included me in a process that he could have easily worked closer with my husband. He worked to blend some of the things I appreciated in a home we viewed to build when continuing the search. I was definitely a 'high maintain' house shopper! This is serious business and Lee Markus does not take it lightly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Azusa, CA.

As first time buyers we had no idea on what to expect when it came to buying a home. Fortunately, we worked with a very experienced Broker/REALTOR who knew exactly what he was doing. We got a great deal for our home but it didn't happen overnight. We had a specific budget we were working with and we wanted to stay close to my fiance's family. We looked at several homes but we were finding that we were being outbid to people who were buying homes "all cash." Don't get discouraged. Although it is easier said than done, it was Lee Markus who was always on the lookout to ensure we got to see new listings as soon as they came out. Lee Markus went above and beyond when working with us. He always addressed our questions and concerns- more importantly, he worked around the clock. If I emailed him something after 8pm, I would still receive a same day response. He was always on top of it! If you are looking for a real estate professional in the Downtown LA, San Gabriel Valley and parts of the I.E., I recommend Lee Markus!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Pomona, CA.

My husband and I are grateful to have worked with Lee Markus. He was extremely knowledgeable and helped us buy our first home. The home we ultimately purchased was a bank owned home which was priced well below the comps for that area. To make a long story short, we offered $79,000 above the asking price. This sounds crazy right? But thanks to Lee Markus' diligent work ethic, he showed us the comps and even at the price we offered, we were still the lowest price per square foot in the area! Plus our offering price was still within our price range. In fact, we had seen homes for higher prices and they did not come close to the amenties and potential this home had. I recall Lee telling us the listing agent shared there were over 30 offers on our home! Believe it or not, we won the bid by a hair at $79,000 above asking price. We are glad we listened to Lee Markus' advice and moved forward! We have owned our home for a few years now and we couldn't be happier! A few words to describe our experience with Lee Markus: extremely knowledgeable, diligent, and cares about his clients. Sincerely The Padilla Family.
