From our first meeting with the bubbly, effervescent, caring Leanne to the conclusion of both our sale and purchase of another property, she has worked tirelessly. I like to refer to her as the “Energizer bunny” as she just doesn’t stop, making sure her clients are happy, even if it means haggling late into the night to get the best for them.
Whereas most realtors I’ve met are there just to get a commission, Leanne actually cares about her client’s wishes and concerns, she brings with her thirty years of experience in the real estate market and a genuine love of the job with dealing with people. Not only do we know we made the right choice to choose her to list our property, but we have gained a life long friend.

I would like to give my perspective on Leanne De Souza’s services as a realtor for my mom. Leanne helped my mom twice: to sell her house and downsize into a condo, and then later, to sell that condo and move into a retirement community.
Leanne always showed herself to be an engaged, available and trustworthy realtor. During this time my mom was starting to get confused about things but Leanne was always helpful. With my mom’s encouragement, Leanne was also in frequent communication with me about how the listing was going, how the market was changing, and kept us updated. A deficiency was recognized in my mom’s suite that took coordination with the strata maintenance people and a contractor to fix. Leanne was very helpful and went beyond what we expected in coordinating with the strata manager to make repairs that were necessary for the sale, which was very helpful, since I was out of town and my mom was starting to get confused and needed help.
I found Leanne to be knowledgeable, helpful and trustworthy and I wish to recommend her to others in similar situations.

I’d like to recommend Leanne de Souza to you as the trustworthy and energetic realtor who can get your home sold. Her insights into timing the current market helped us sell our well-loved family home for full price just one day after the open house and two days after listing. The whirlwind pace of the process didn’t slow Leanne down at all. From helping us get our home ready to sell, to deciding on price, Leanne’s advice has been invaluable. I believe we would not have done so well had we not had Leanne on our team. And now that we are on the other side, looking for a new home to love, she is a patient, no pressure guide. She is willing to listen to all our ups and downs as we make this emotional decision, and always arrives with a big smile. We’ve called on Leanne to sell our last two homes and would not hesitate to do so again.

If you are looking for a caring competent realtor, look no further than Leanne De Souza.
When we decided to sell our house, Leanne came to discuss it with us. We chose to move to a retirement home somewhere is the area; Leanne arranged for us to visit and lunch at five homes in this neighbourhood.
When we had chosen where we wanted to live, we put our house on the market. She held one open house and we sold the house, at more than our asking price, within three days. She arranged with a packer and a mover for us. We are pleased and comfortable in our new home.
We have been delighted with her services; and would highly recommend her to others.

“We first met Leanne over 5 years ago when we first started looking to move. We couldn’t find anything we like and I guess we weren’t totally committed to moving. Over the years Leanne checked in with us and was very understanding and patient while we were looking for the perfect place to live. We got to know each other and became very comfortable with her advice and knowledge of the market. Once we found it Leanne jumped into action and negotiated with the sellers realtor and got us our dream townhouse. As we bought and hadn’t sold she quickly put our house up for sale guiding us along the way on how to present it and deal with our concerns if we didn’t sell.Leanne was successful in selling our house in 3 days and negotiated a selling price we were happy with. Leanne is very hardworking and available anytime we had a question or needed her. She is knowledgeable of all the legal requirements but more importantly she became a trusted friend. We are extremely satisfied with Leanne’s knowledge, understanding, and availability and we have highly recommended her to all our neighbours.”

“I recommend Leanne de Souza to you as the realtor who recently orchestrated the purchase of my “perfect”condo and the sale of my “perfect” home. Because she knows the community so well, I found her to be endlessly resourceful with regard to the details of both the transactions and the details of moving. She has the necessary focus, energy and negotiation skills to facilitate decisions and bring things to closure to the satisfaction of all involved. She is a problem solver. She is dependable and entirely trustworthy. On a personal level, I found Leanne to be a good listener, and an insightful and empathetic guide through the many decisions that need to be made during this stressful time.
Should I require a realtor’s services in the future, I will , without question, call Leanne. I trust her to act in my best interests.”

“My dear Leanne,
I miss you! You have been such a great help to me, way beyond just helping me and my dogs to find exactly the right house and all the stops and starts on the way.

“To whom it may concern,I would like to take this opportunity to compliment Leanne de Souza on her effort given to help me find a home. I came to HomeLife Benchmark Realty knowing only that I would like to have a place to live, and Leanne guided me from there. My price range was quite low, but even with such a substantial restriction she was able to find multiple units in multiple complexes that were within my meager budget. I spent roughly a month looking for an apartment with Leanne, and she was very helpful and happy with all of my requests to see multiple apartments in the evenings when it was convenient for me. In the end, Leanne’s contacts in the real estate industry led us to a very unique opportunity to find an exceptional apartment at a very reasonable price that was available immediately. At that point I still did not know what to do, and Leanne assisted in every step of the purchase procedure, from analyzing the minutes ofthe strata council to finding an excellent mortgage broker. Having enjoyed my home purchase, I am now living happily ever after in my new apartment thanks to Leanne de Souza.”
