It has been six months since we moved in to our new home. This is our first time owning a house and it feels great to have a place to call home. My sister and I rented an apartment since we moved to CA in 2002. After receiving a letter about rent increase in June 2014, we decided to buy a house. We started searching the internet and we found a house that we wanted to purchase. We visited the property and made an offer through the seller’s broker, but we were not able to get the house since there were other people ahead of us that made offers. We proceeded to the second house that we also found through the internet and made an offer, which was immediately turned down by the seller’s broker. After many discussions on whether or not to proceed in buying a house, my sister suggested setting up a meeting with Mia. I was very reluctantly in doing so at first, but I eventually went along with it. We knew it would be very stressful to buy a house and I was not sure if I wanted to go through that while we were both pregnant. After a few weeks of contemplating whether or not to meet up with Mia, we decided to go ahead and set-up the meeting last week of July. Mia and Leonard were very kind and met up with us on a Saturday. They were very detailed in asking questions of what kind of property we wanted to buy, location of the property, how many bedrooms, etc. The following Saturday, we visited properties with Mr. Ted Alcantara and on the same day, we decided to make an offer on the last property we visited. Mia and her team drafted the offer on that Monday and started the negotiations. Moreover, Leonard and Michelle were extremely helpful. They constantly contacted us about status updates and documents that needed to be processed. Leonard even emailed us what was called “sequence of events,” which was helpful in giving us an idea on how the home buying process works and the timelines we needed to be on top of. After 2 months, from the initial meeting, we got the house and moved in. Buying a house is not that difficult after all, even if you are pregnant, for as long as you are working with a competent and excellent team like McLeod & Associates. We strongly recommend them to everyone who wants to fulfill their dreams of owning property(s). We would do it all over again for as long as McLeod & Associates are there to help! Thank you so much, Mia, Leonard, Ted, Michelle and to the entire team, for helping us find and getting us a place to call home!

As you scroll down the list of reviews, you have to wonder how legitimate all these five star reviews are but once you become a client of McLeod & Associates they definitely earn the recognition! When my husband and I decided to sell our home, we knew who we had to call if we wanted it done properly. Mia and Len took care of us from the beginning! I love the level of professionalism and the time they took explaining exactly what the process would be once our home was on the market, but their mini presentation sealed the deal for us. We were very clear from the beginning as to what our goal was and they definitely helped us meet it. Our home was well priced, it sold after a couple of weeks of being on the market. Once we accepted our full priced offer, Mia and her team jumped in and took over.. I have to admit the stacks of paper that had to be signed were endless, nonetheless the process wasn't overwhelming.. Being that we have such busy schedules we were able to sign the majority of the documents electronically and this was huge for us. Both my husband and I have know Mia since high school and are very happy to see all the great things the McLeod team has accomplished and how involved they are in the community. If you are looking for and BEST team of realtors to work with as you get ready to sell/buy your next home we highly recommend them.. We will continue to use their services in the future, we LOVE them so much we have no problem referring potential business their way!

What a pleasure it was to work with McLeod & Associates! In every meeting and interaction with the team, I was met with genuineness, professionalism and a personalized experience. I was in a tough spot with a desire to purchase a condo without having to give up my first house. Mia, Len and team leveraged their creativity and problem solving to make this happen. They stayed in touch with me throughout the whole process, and within weeks of finding my perfect home, my offer was accepted and I was picking out paint samples! Most importantly, I never felt like a "client," but rather a friend they were helping out. I would highly recommend McLeod & Associates to anyone looking to buy a new home.

I knew Mia and Len thru a Filipino Community organization and I've heard about how successful they are in what they do so when I was looking to buy my next home, I didn't have second thought of reaching out to them. My first home buying experience was painless and my first realtor was good as well but since I personally knew Mia and Len, and I've read and heard good things about them, my instinct was to work with them. Even though I kind of knew what I'm getting myself into and what to expect, Mia and her team truly exceeded all the expectations I had, from the very beginning to even after the end of the process. Mia and Len were very detailed, and and will constantly be in touch, providing updates or just checking in. They're not any other realtor out there. They are genuine. They will explain to me everything, including how they work, how the home process works, what the next steps are, including anticipated timeline to what I need to move in. They are even there to keep my spirits up when things are getting frustrating. It's truly amazing and customer service at it's best!!! They deserve more than five stars as they really go above and beyond. I will definitely recommend them and will always go with them for all my real estate needs! Thank you very much again Mia and Len for all your help!... and oh... to Michelle as well! You guys are amazing and a Filipino pride!

Our experience on our first realtor agent has been a disaster. I wasn't too happy on my first house, location was terrible and they are lots of issue with the house. after living for 5 years I run in to one of Mia's show in Kababayan LA in LA-18, as a matter of fact, my mother-in-law saw the show first and recommended to call the McLeod & Associates. after our first initial meeting, I am very please how professional and knowledgeable Mia and Len, they had given me all the information I needed and what to expect. Everyone in McLeod Team has its special purpose and all are very good at what they do. I could not thank them enough, Patrick made a beautiful high quality pictures and know exactly which part of the house are good to show to the public, they have many tools to showcase the property, they were able to use a social media, website, sign on the house and more beyond my expectations. Len are like a guru in real estate, he is able to explain what type of property I had, when is a good time to sell, and he was strategically suggest what is the best selling price, so we can get as many bid as we can, everything Len tells me is been proven and he has a documents to show me what is current, past, present and historically informations which helps me tremendously for my decision. Michelle from the reception area is very organized and great communicator, she was able to accommodate all the showings to my availability, I believe there are over 70 showings she organized to see the property. This is great so we are able to maximize the price of the property and we have lots of option. Again, Thank you Mia and the team for helping us to sell our house, I am looking forward and excited to work with you again soon, when are ready to purchase our next future house.

Lastly, Mia's team, is Trustworthy, Knowledgeable, Experience and they care. These are the recipe you need to find a great realtor agents.

My husband and I had a terrible experience trying to sell our house for the first time. We were locked in on our listing agreement for one whole year by our agent who happened to be a family friend. We didn’t question the term of the agreement since she is a friend of the family and had complete trust that she had our best interest at heart. Needless to say, she didn’t and we are no longer family friends. After our listing agreement expired, we were apprehensive about putting our house back on the market. We did a lot of research and decided we would interview a few realtors. When Mia and Leonard came over, they were very friendly and professional. They handed us a beautifully prepared booklet that was very informative about what we need to know about selling our house. We had a good feeling about them and after narrowing it down to two final candidates; we felt more comfortable with Mia and Leonard and decided to go for it! Not only were they our selling agent, we decided on having them as our buying agent as well. After two weeks from our initial meeting, our house was sold and a week after that, Mia and Leonard found us our beautiful home! After the difficult time we had with our first real estate agent, we just about lost faith in realtors but Mia and her team restored that faith. Not only did McLeod & Associates make selling and finding our new house very easy, they also made it extremely fun and we can’t wait until we get a chance to work with them again.

McLeod Testimonial It was 2011 when we first met the McLeod Team. From that moment, we knew that they were the one. Kumbaga, “they had us at hello”. Because you can really tell by their aura that they are sincere and they won’t rip you off, so to speak. It was a lot of things that made working with the McLeod Team a very pleasant experience. First of all, with them, it wasn’t all business. They definitely made house hunting fun. Their approach was more of a friendly vibe - sharing house ideas while bringing in some sense of humor to break the business ice. Second, they were honest. They told us directly if something was a little off with the property or if they feel the house did not match both our personalities. After looking at several houses, we decided to hold off on house hunting because we needed to further build up our finances. They totally understood it - no convincing tactics, no pressure. This was another one of their good traits. So 2013, we decided to call them again and see if they can still be our agents. No questions asked, they said “yes”. To make the long story short, we got our single family house with a pool in a great neighborhood at the price we wanted. They told everything there is to know about buying a house, and you can imagine how much explaining that took them since this is a first purchase and we didn’t know anything about it. We know it’s cliché but, but we didn’t just gained an agent – we gained a friend. Up to this day, we still invite each other for parties, celebrations, Pacquiao fights and what not. Also, they haven’t stopped being our confidants when it comes to questions and concerns about our property and taxes. So cheers to the McLeod Team. You guys are the best! Richard and Kat Dano

I'm not sure where to start with this testimonial because my wife Stephanie, our kids and I are so happy with our new (to us) home which was all made possible by Mia, Leonard and Marlene at McLeod and Associates.

To set a little background, this is not the first property I've purchased. Over the past 18 years or so I've worked with several different realtors to help me find both owned and leased properties to live in so I have experience working with other offices. Fortunately, I've never had a bad experience elsewhere but the experience I had with Mia and her team was irrevocably, the best of them all.

Mia and her team's professionalism, attention and customer service has been excellent. I always feel like I'm her main customer whenever I'm dealing with her and I never feel like I don't know what's happening with my transaction. The thing I found most exceptional was how aggressive Mia and her team was with handling our transaction with all parties involved including (but not limited to) the seller, lender and escrow company.

What's great about working with Mia and her team is that our relationship with them didn't end when our transaction closed. I still reach out to Mia whenever I have a question relating to my loan or when I need a referral for an area outside of Southern California and I still get the same quality service from her. The biggest benefit of all is that she makes us feel like we're more than just clients!

I can say with confidence that when I'm ready to move into my next home Mia and her team will be the one I choose to handle our transaction. Hands-down, there's no better choice!

Being a first time home buyer, I didn't know what to expect or where to start. It's also a scary adventure to walk on, but as long as you educate yourself and find the right agent to help you on your journey, it'll go well. Here's where McLeod and Associates comes in...

I am a good long time friend of Mia McLeod, and when the time came to look for that home, I didn't hesitate to reach out to her for help. Her success has really made their company stand out above the rest, and that's important when choosing the right agent to help you out with your real estate journey. They will walk everything over with your from start to finish. If you didn't understand or needed more information about something, they're glad to answer your questions. There's a lot of information that will be presented to you during the process, and it can be intimidating. However, The McLeod Team knows how to keep your mind at ease through the process. You let them know what you're looking for, what budget you intend, and what area, and they will do their absolute best to find what you're looking for.

My fiancee (at the time) and I were originally looking at one house, but due to conflict of interest on the seller's part, we didn't go through with that first house. Mia worked her magic, and we were LUCKY to find an even better house in the same community for cheaper! Plus it was mostly remodeled before hand (the first place had quite a bit of work to be done), and had a bigger backyard (something that most town houses these days do not have). All the pieces were coming together, and we're glad Mia got us in at "the right place at the right time".

The McLeod Team - I am extremely grateful to have worked with them on this home buying adventure. You're the nicest, most knowledgeable and respectable people that I have ever worked with. You guys know your stuff, and will help other people on their real estate adventure.

I highly recommend McLeod & Associates. Kudos to the team: Mia, Len, Marlyne, Patrick and Diana.

As first time home buyers, my wife and I were reluctant in even starting the transaction; as we were unnerved by the uncertainty of the market, overwhelmed with the financial scrutiny and the burden that comes along with the purchase process; and also fearful of being taken advantage of by sellers, agents, and loan providers. All that apprehension quickly turned into hope, excitement, and the promises of our first home when we met Mia and the Mcleod Associates. Right from the start, Mia and team demonstrated their genuine care, quality service and personal investment in our journey to finding our first dream home. Ultimately that's what makes the difference. Thanks to Mia and team, they transformed what could have easily been just a financial transaction into a special journey, into a memorable milestone for my wife and family. And at the end that journey were keys to an even more beautiful and hopeful future that we could have even imagined, under the roof of our dream home. Quite frankly, Mia and team are bar none the best in the industry -- efficient, knowledgeable, resourceful and solution-oriented; making our journey not about the $$$ or even about the physical property of the house but rather the importance of finding the right home, personalizing each step of the process and satisfying our family's specific needs. While they made it look easy throughout the entire process, as their client, I can admit that I certainly didn't make it easy or simple to meet all my expectations. Essentially, I asked Mia to find my family the perfect home that meets all of our requirements (relatively new home with upgraded features in a safe neighborhood with a distinguished school district within a commuters distance to LA, in our price range with minimal down and closing costs PLUS do so all in ONE week's time). Literally, I walked in her office on a Monday morning with my long and requiring list of specific expectations; and seven days later had an accepted offer to the first house my wife had fallen in love. Fast forward appx 35 days later, we closed escrow. Mind you, at no point during the process did we have to settle for anything less than our high expectations. And although they made it look easy, the journey was met with a few challenges due to the seller; even then, Mia and team were quick to resolve every issue and without having to burden us with each and every roadblock. They were proactive; followed up repeatedly; always kept us informed; and most importantly, always preserved and protected our best interest. Coupled with their genuine compassion and steadfast commitment to their clients, Mia and her Mcleod associates (Len, Marlyne, Patrick & Diana) are exceptionally the best in the industry. Hands down. And better yet, they do it all. They can even service your loan needs; ultimately with rates equally competitive but best of all, it's part of fully integrated package, personalized by Mia and team, all under one roof. One stop shop, making it easy, efficient, and effective for every client and their individual needs. There are no words to sufficiently express our gratitude and complete satisfaction of their services provided; in fact, we have already referred a close friend of ours to Mia and their experience was equally satisfying; they've already moved into their first home as well. Now it's your turn and rest assured you are in the best of hands with Mia & the Mcleod Associates.
