Ratings & Reviews

Leslie Slade is the consummate professional, more than that; she is adept in navigating the sometimes arduous process of successfully purchasing the right home. Leslie was always available and answered my questions with presence and clarity. A wonderful surprise in working with Leslie was how proactive she was. She was always 2 steps ahead of me, on top of all the details, and addressed situations before I even had to ask. Leslie definitely made me feel my business was of value to her. Moreover, she treated me like family. I was a first time home buyer and I could not have done this without her! It is without hesitation that I recommend Leslie to anyone that requires a real estate expert who is extremely knowledgeable and has impeccable interpersonal skills and communication. Thank you Leslie!

Bought a home in 2010 in Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles, CA 90031.

Leslie directed me with the purchase of an investment property in Ventura. Her knowledge of the area and rentals was excellent. Her knowledge of the law added to the smooth transition and a fair price. She is trustworthy and diligent. It has been a couple of years since the acquisition I still call her because I feel that she has become a friend and she calls to follow up on me,my family and my investment. Other than her excellent professional attributes, What sets Leslie aside from all others is that she follows up months and years after the closing. She is as diligent with the relationship of her client as she is with the acquisition of real estate. She cares and is truly an agent of sincerity.

Sold a home in 2012 in Boulder Bay, Angelus Oaks, CA 92315.

It’s eight minutes from my house in West LA to Santa Monica airport. Twenty minutes more in my twin-engine 414 to big bear lake. Then, in the old station wagon I park at the airport, a couple more minutes to the house. That means I could be sitting in my living room wishing I was in Big Bear - - and half hour later I’m sitting over-looking the lake!

It’s a three-story house set in a deepwater cove at the edge of the lake. It has a full lake view through it’s 2 ½ story glass walled living room. But, we put it together with spit and string, imagination and nerve. When I bought the house as a bargain , it was a salvage, or a tear down. I flew up every day to supervise a haphazard, rotating crew of workers as we slowly put it together, There were some wild ideas, a mammoth wooden beam we had milled in Northern California and shipped down. Engineering said it was stronger than steel and we structurally hung the entire house on it. It also became the centerpiece of the living room. An indoor-outdoor spa on the deck outside the master bedroom, incased in glass, through which you viewed the lake and the spa-takers from my bed. An eight foot river-rock wall surrounding the property with a wrought- iron gate that whispered ESTATE.

Then I had a heart transplant. That meant I lost my pilot medical certificate and could no longer fly to big bear. The dream was gone. We had to sell.

Fortunately, I commissioned Leslie Slade to do the job. She took a picture of the house that somehow captured the spirit of what it had to offer. She placed it, not only in the local Big Bear press but also in Daily Variety and Ho;;ywood Reporter, a good target audience for Vacation Homes.

Our major problem was the remodeling and reconstruction had never received a final inspection and permit from the city. Nor had the work been done with individual permits or inspections. Leslie embarked merrily on the nightmare task of getting individual contractors, engineers, and suppliers to write affidavits stating that their work had been done strictly according to code. She arranged meetings between contractors and city inspectors to verify the legitimacy of whether the codes were followed. She cheerfully and rapidly worked her way through the maze, until she immerged triumphantly with a certificate of final inspection in hand, proclaiming the house was safe to inhabit and therefore legal to sell.

That was a demonstration of ingenuity, hard work and diligence. But much more than that. “Leslie got it!” She understood why the house was great. And, she was able to communicate that with words to her clients. Maybe it’s because she is also a good attorney, able to argue a case. That’s why, to my surprise, she was able to crack the million dollar mark, with room to spare, selling the property as a highly desirable and unusual mansion.

She has my strong gratitude and admiration.

Respectfully,

Richard Rush

Sold a home in 2007.

Leslie was very helpful to me and to my family in our real estate process. She helped us buy a property, and when we needed to sell, she was amazing. Because she followed through in a difficult situation, I would recommend her to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $425K in East Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA.

Leslie Slade represented us on a transaction in Santa Barbara, CA in October of 2010. She was a true professional throughout, and I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.

Not an easy sale, due to extreme conditions of the property (disrepair) , and the requirement for multiple inspections and estimates to be coordinated with the seller. She put up with all of our requests for extra visits prior to closing, making certain that everything that needed to get done was completed, on schedule. She has excellent people skills.

She's also a detail person, with her background in law. Leslie was acting in a dual agent role - representing both buyer and seller. There's a delicate balance that has to be struck when acting in this capacity, and I give her high marks for treating both sides fairly. There were compromises in which we, the buyer, and the seller had to meet in the middle, and Leslie made both parties feel like her role was simply to facilitate a fair and ethical transaction. She did this with true professionalism.

I've worked with many agents over the past twenty years as an investor and manager of property. Leslie ranks among the very highest.

Sold a home in 2014.

Ms. Slade is an asset to the real estate community. I had a situation where I needed to sell a multi-family building and time was of the essence. Leslie was extremely knowledgeable about the real estate process and was able to get me more then I initially expected.

I have recommended her services to people in my personal and professional network and everyone is extremely happy with her services.

Showed home in 2013 in Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, CA 93041.

Leslie Slade is not only a consumate professional who knows the Ventura County real estate market very well, but she has a number of qualities I consider even more important, such as the fact that she is loyal to her clients, and has their best interests at heart (even when that best interest might not benefit her financially) and she is a very good listener as far as what the client desires. She is also a stickler for the details of the real estate transaction, and since she is also a trained attorney, understands not only the mechanics of the contracts but their meaning as well. As far as the specifics of Leslie's representation of our family, Leslie represented my wife and myself on an attempted condo-purchase in Port Hueneme, California in 2013. We did not end up closing that sale due to a number of defects we found that the seller was unwilling to remedy at his cost. Leslie stood by us even though it meant doing so would not close the transaction. However, due to her integrity, we are still pursuing other Ventura County properties under Leslie's guidance and are confident we will succeed with her very capable assistance. All of Leslie's qualities fit our needs as out -of -town clients who need to rely on a local professional for our real estate needs in Ventura County.

Sold a Single Family home in 2005 in Kittanning, PA.

She was very friendly, efficient & skillful. She made more than one house sale for us & we were totally happy with the results. I highly recommend her. She brought a difficult negotiation between my brother and myself to several successful & profitable house sales. One of these sales was 1948 Phillippi St., San Fernando, CA 91340
