|You hear of people going the extra mile........Well Leslie goes the extra 10 miles to sell your property and to complete the transaction. She responds to the phone or text messages when you have questions or concerns. She is never "put out" by the multiple questions a seller/buyer may have.|

|I had Leslie represent my wife and myself as Buyers. I ran a successful Real Estate Brokerage with many agents over 40 years. Since I am a retired Broker I was very pleased with Leslie's knowledge and expertise in her handling our successful search for our new home. Anyone using her real estate talents will be glad they did!|
|Wow - sitting in the beautiful huge kitchen of our new rental home listening to the sounds of 7 college students move in. They are laughing and happy and so thrilled to be living in this beautiful home. And Leslie made it happen. Not an easy escrow - contingency sale, bad initial lender experience, short escrow, concurrent closes, different lender last minute delay.... 7 kids who needed to move in on 8/21 and now escrow not closing until 8/24. But Leslie to the rescue. She and her daughter Angelica were a great team - knew what we wanted, showed us the right places and when we decided, they worked hard to get it going and keep it going. Will always recommend the DeLuca team - small home or multi-million $ - her commitment is the same. Thank you!!!|
|Leslie was very helpful and knowledgable about the Carmel area. Great personality and very professional. House sold in 9 days, cash offer. closed in 45 days. She also delt with my tennants that were always not that pleasant. I would highly recommend her.|
|Leslie was wonderful. She explored all possible options that were available to me and was extremely patient throughout the entire process. She really does care about her clients. I had changed my direction several times, but she steered me into the best possible position. I ended up not having to sell my home and purchasing a second in the area I was hoping for. She truly is a professional who made me feel very comfortable and talked to me like a friend and not just another client. I am glad I teamed up with her and I would definitely work with her again.|
|Leslie DeLuca is a true professional in the real estate industry ! She has lived in the Monterey area her whole life and knows the Monterey Peninsula better than anyone. What is so impressive to me is Leslie's knowledge of the real estate markets and what it takes to get the job done in the best possible way for her clients. She also always goes the extra mile for her clients. To Leslie, it's not just about the commission, it's about people, their homes and their families. Leslie's clients become her friends and her ability to be very successful and grow the last few years proves what a great firm DeLuca really is. There are lots of realtors out there , but choosing DeLuca will be decision you won't regret! So if you are buying or selling-----chose DeLuca first.|
|I have known and been working with Leslie for several years and she is the most thorough, sincere, professional businesswoman in her field. She is so generous with her time and will do whatever it takes to assist you in finding the home of your dreams!!!|
|My real estate career has spanned about 20 years--I have been fortunate to have worked on the Monterey Peninsula the entire time and was raised here too. I have worked at several real estate companies on the Monterey Peninsula. This past January, I joined DeLuca Real Estate with my friend and cousin Leslie DeLuca. In my many years of real estate - and the short amount of time that I have been with DeLuca Real Estate - I would have to say - it is #1. Leslie DeLuca is doing all the right things! She understands the market, studies it daily - I don't know when she sleeps. When a seller places their home in the hands of DeLuca Real Estate - it will be marketed like no other and SOLD faster than others! There is a team spirit within the brokerage and a true family atmosphere created by Leslie DeLuca. At DeLuca Real Estate we work as a team to help sell your home fast! It is my pleasure to be part of this special place from the ground up! Watch out Monterey Peninsula!|
|Leslie De Luca provides exceptional customer service. I needed a Market Analysis completed right away to help me get a refinance loan. Eventhough we only knew each other through Professional Women's Network, she responded immediatley, was extremely resourceful and knew what I needed. If there is a chance I will have the inaccurate appraisal reconsidered, it will be as a result of Leslie's competent and speedy work. Thanks you Leslie!!!|
|Leslie made our home purchase easy and was always there from the beginning to the end|
|Leslie has been understanding of our needs and has spent countless hours attending to every detail for close to a year now and worked relentlessly to find the right home for us. Her knowledge and expertise as a lifelong resident has taken the stress out of a major move. She has a broad range of connections and referrals to help you accomplish your dreams and makes you feel like you are her only focus. Leslie is a lifelong agent! Thanks Leslie, for being there every step of the way!|
|Leslie DeLuca helped my family find and buy their first home. The entire process of house hunting to securing a loan from start to finish was more than 9 months in total. It was the most stressful experience my family had ever been through. Throughout the entire time Leslie was the most professional and generous person my family has ever had the pleasure to work with. There wasn't a day that she wasn't available to help or answer questions in person, email, or phone. Every time a house would become available on the market it was only a matter of hours before Leslie was able to take or meet my family to see the property. Even though she has other clients and is very busy on numerous occasions she would still find the time to meet with us late in the day when my parents were out of work. Throughout the entire process we never ever felt rushed. She is down to earth and is genuinely always looking out for her client's best interest. Any other agent would have probably given up on my family's dream of finding a home that they liked and could afford within a month's time. Leslie was just as motivated on the day we closed the loan working for us as she was on the first day we started the whole process. Throughout my experiences with realtors or real estate agents in the past, Leslie is absolutely the best. You will never find a better human being and professional to work with. We always felt like she was part of the family looking for a house together.|

|You take all the pressure of buying away by giving your clients the knowledge they need.|
