I first started my career in real estate in 2004, prior to that I worked in the mortgage industry as a loan agent.  Such experience gives me a tremendous amount of knowledge in both the financial and real estate side of things. My main passion is being a real estate practitioner.  This is reflected in my efforts to stay up to date with ongoing events and current market conditions and why I am an active member of the Board of Realtors of South Pasadena.  I am short sale certified, and bilingual in both English and Spanish.  I have had significant experience assisting clients with distressed homes and offer advice on how to handle real estate during these challenging times. My career has been defined by a consistent commitment to delivering excellent customer service, expertise, and working hard to help my clients achieve their goals.

As a realtor I am offering integrity, honesty, and superior service when assisting my clients in buying or selling a home.  It is these traits that have always driven my real estate career. I sincerely love what I do and the people I help.  I work hard to help my clients reach their real estate goals and everything in between. Unparalleled commitment and trust have created life-long relationships with my clients. I never forget that my success as a realtor has always been referral driven and my clients are my best advertisement.

My experience and background allows me to negotiate the best deal possible and ensure my clients they will be receiving the highest and best service possible from me. I am devoted to looking out for their best interest.  I do my best to make the buying and selling experience as pleasant and stress free as possible. 

As a real estate professional I address any potential problems before they appear.  I prepare buyers and sellers for any possible "bumps in the road" and inform them of their options.  I believe education is one of the fundamental steps in the real estate transaction to help buyers and sellers understand the process and to make it a successful one.  I love to provide 100% support to all my clients and address any of their questions or concerns.  I believe an informed client is a happy one :)  I look forward in helping you with all your real estate needs.

Your neighborhood realtor,

Len C.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $100K in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, CA.

Len Contreras is an excellent realtor. He successfully identified, negotiated, and closed our second home. Len was very attentive; he checked in with my wife and me regularly. Len's persistence ensured that we moved into the house of our dreams. He constantly checked in with the seller's representatives. In fact, the sellers agent told my wife, "your agent is very nice and very hardworking." Len's professionalism is admirable, he was more than happy to answer all our questions, which I'm sure were annoying at times, and meet with us well beyond reasonable business hours. His knowledge on the housing market is very impressive, the increased value of our property is evidence of that. I recommend Len to all my friends/acquaintances interested in in purchasing property. Like my favorite football team, the raiders, he has a commitment to excellence. Len Contreras is great.  More Less

Bought a home in 2010.

I had a great experience buying my first property with Mr. Contreras. When we purchased our duplex everyone was submitting offers. It was tough. We were getting out bid. He spotted a property that needed quite a bit of work and didn't qualify for FHA. FHA would allow us, my wife and I, to put down 3 1/2 %. After speaking to the agent, Mr. Contreras told me that offers weren't being submitted for this property since it needed work and didn’t qualify for FHA. He then suggested that we pay for about $700 dollars worth of repairs to make the property FHA eligible. He went back to the agent and the agent agreed to the terms. The appraisal to the house came in about $25,000 under our original bid. Since we were already in escrow and made the repairs, the bank had no other option than to take our new bid for $185,000 instead of our original bid of $210,000. Thanks to Mr. Contreras' creative and clever negotiating skills, my wife and I were able to purchase our first property. We would call and email him often and would always be available for us. Mr. Contreras is a great agent and I would and do recommend Mr. Contreras to all my friends and family. In fact, Mr. Contreras has helped my parents, my sister, and a close friend with their purchases of their homes. He was great for them too.  More Less
