Things, like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls, can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Lester has been a blessing! We had soo many obstacles in our way and he helped us navigate through it all. There were soo many last minute changes during the negotiation process, that I just wanted to throw in the towel and give up. But Lester stayed calm and most importantly was patient with my frustrations and concerns. Special thanks again to him. "
-James Y., Client

-Cheryl I., Client
"Lester is very patient with me, there were time that I snapped at him because every time we put in an offer someone else get. My husband and I hardly have the same days of so when my husband worked night at my days off, he made sure to show us all the properties that I requested. Although we offered to meet him at the locations he insisted to go with him and took us to all of them. The most important thing that I like about Lester is the communication. He gave us head ups about properties and suggestions. There was one that I really like the property and location but the owner want the buyer to rent the it to the owner until they find a place to stay. Thank you for the feedback Lester. It is my first time to buy a house and had no expirience of the stressful situation if buying a house so I thank Lester for his hard work and got us a house within two months of searching "
-Terri Y., Client
"Lester was awesome! So very patient and helpful. He answered all of my questions before I even had to ask. Lester worked. Lester was very accommodating with our busy schedules and would show us places before or after his own family activities. Lester kept us well informed of all the different steps and activities that were needed. Lester was always prompt on all our email, texts and calls. We always got answers to all our questions quickly. "
-James Yamamoto, Client
"I highly recommend Lester as a real estate agent. I am a Marco Polo owner and am displaced due to the fire. Lester was recommended to me so I called him to ask him to help me find a rental property. He sent me listings and gave me contact info for the ones I was interested in. All the while, I thought that this was part of his job and he would get a commission on the unit I rented. I found out that it wasn't part of his job. He helped me out of the kindness of his heart. He always answered my emails and phone calls promptly and was so pleasant to speak with and eager to help. He is not only a great agent but also a good humanitarian. What more could you ask for in a business professional?"

"Need a real estate agent? Then you better call Lester Salazar. Les is fairly new to the real estate game but you wouldn't know it by his expertise and professionalism. From day one he had a plan mapped out as to what we would do and when we would do it. He provided daily updates via text, email, or phone call and goes beyond the call of duty to make sure every need is taken care of. I've had more than a few real estate agents in my life and this is a fact and indisputable: Lester Salazar is the best agent I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and call Les. You won't regret it."
