Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $275K in North Park, San Diego, CA.
I can't express in words how wonderful Lenna is. I met her at an open house about a year before I started seriously looking, and she kept us on her email list in a very non-aggressive manner. When I started looking seriously, my husband & I were actually kind of working with a few other agents, but she was the only one I felt we could be honest with about our price range and down payment, and had our best interests at heart.
She sat us down and explained the Ins & Outs of real estate and was willing to work with our budget & in the limited area we wanted to live. She said as long as we were patient, she didn't mind helping us. When something came on the market, she would jump on it, willing to meet us on our time (including before work) to check out a place. She would try to talk to listing agents even when the owners/banks were asking for cash or a down payment we couldn't afford. Through her diligence in looking for new listings and ones that came back on the market, we found a condo in our price range in the area we wanted relatively quickly. She was also aggressive in talking down some of the transfer fees on the HOA docs and was willing to (almost literally) hold our hands during the entire process. After the inspection when we realized we would need repairs, she brought in second opinions and contractors to give us estimates of the repairs so we knew exactly what we were getting into. She even followed up after we moved in when we had some unexpected repairs!
Later on, she also remembered that we were looking for a dog & forwarded us info on a rescue that we ended up adopting! Lenna really cares about her clients and has definitely changed our lives!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Carlsbad, CA.
First, I would like to say Lenna Doyle found us our dream home in a very competitive real estate market!. Lenna was referred to us by a friend and we would highly recommend working with Lenna to buy/sell your property. Lenna is very easy to work with and responsive - she answers all phone calls and emails. She is also knowledgeable, creative and has superb negotiation skills!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Ramona, CA.
Having dealt with a number of agents for our three home purchases and sales, I would have to say that Lenna is one of the BEST! There was never a time where I felt pressured, annoyed for lack of response, or lost for lack of knowledge/input. She always seemed to be in sync with our thought process and knew just what we needed at any particular moment in time. Her advice was always "spot-on" and led to us getting THE house - even though it was already under contract by the time we were ready to make an offer! I have nothing but good to say about Lenna, and would not hesitate in any way to recommend her!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Spring Valley, CA.
Lenna was extremely helpful when we bought our house. Her knowledge and expertise made the process go much quicker and smoother. She never gave up and worked with us to make sure we found the home of our dreams I would highly recommend her.
Showed home in 2012 in La Jolla, San Diego, CA 92037.
Lenna, is an associate in the La Jolla office of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty. My dealings with her on a personal and professional level have been exceptional. She works hard for her clients to get the maximum benefit. I would highly recommend her as a buyers or sellers agents. Working with Lenna will get you the results you desire.
Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $225K in Bay Park, San Diego, CA.
Lenna was my agent when I bought my condo in San Diego in 2010. This was my first-ever real estate transaction, and Lenna helped me make sense of the bewildering mass of paperwork involved. I was really glad to have her overseeing things because I knew I could trust her judgment and expertise. It took me a long time, and a lot of searching, to find the property that was in the right location at the right price. It took a lot of time and patience on Lenna's part - finding this perfect "fit"! She was very helpful through all stages - from searching, to putting in the offer, to closing the sale, even to helping me find contractors for the necessary fix-up work. I am 100% satisfied with my new home and Lenna's service!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Del Cerro, San Diego, CA.
We hired Lenna to represent us as a buyers' agent when we wanted to purchase a home. She patiently showed us many properties and ultimately found the *perfect* home for us. Because it was a foreclosed property, the handling required extra work and attention, which Lenna handled professionally from start to finish. I would (and do!) recommend Lenna for all your real estate needs! She is very thorough and responsive, is an absolute pleasure to work with, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!!"
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA.
I have nothing but good things to say about Lenna. I felt totally comfortable with her from the moment we first met. It felt like I was looking for a home with a friend rather than a real estate agent. Lenna was always responsive to my needs and willing to work with my schedule. I never felt any pressure and with each home we looked at felt that I gained more valuable knowledge and insight into the San Diego real estate market. I absolutely love my new home and wouldn't be here without Lenna's help.
