“Michael Repka and his team did an outstanding job selling our home in Palo Alto, and I find it hard to believe that anyone would work with another agent. 1. The marketing materials and strategy were of exceptional quality. The money and the time they spend on this is unmatched by any other Realtor® as far as I can tell. 2. Michael worked hard to get us the best price, even though there was a willing buyer working with DeLeon’s buying team. In other words, DeLeon gave up commission so we could get the best deal for our home. 3. Michael’s training as a lawyer means that he understands negotiating strategy and financial implications of various deal structures in a way that is superior to any other Realtor® I have encountered. I recommend them without hesitation.”
“Michael Repka was our agent and was very impressive. I believe he oversees the entire listing side of DeLeon but, even during the busy spring selling season, when DeLeon had loads of other listings, it felt like we were his only client. Every email, no matter how trivial or anxious, was returned within the hour, and his prediction on the expected number of offers and eventual sale price was spot on.”
“I had a really positive (and successful!) experience with Michael Repka’s team at DeLeon….
Michael had listened to what items of any potential offer were important to me and obtained for me exactly the type of offer I was looking for. I have bought and sold 5 houses in my lifetime, and the DeLeon experience was indeed different than any other experience I have ever had. I would highly recommend them.”
“I can’t say enough about our experience working with DeLeon. Every big and small detail was thought of and executed beyond expectations. The people were warm and totally professional. They have a really great business model—what I call wrap-around, comprehensive services. Everyone integrated their skills and expertise as one finely thought-out system…. DeLeon helped me do everything that needed to get done, including having the best sub-contractors for specialized tasks. We developed a budget and timeline. I kid you not, to the day, by maybe a week, the house sold on time for more than expected. I r ecommend them highly. They were easy to work with and gave me increased respect for what a real estate company can do, big or small.”
“Michael Repka and DeLeon are extraordinary. From our initial contact with him at a seminar to our first individual meeting with him and a few of his team, through the full process of preparing, staging, listing, showing, and selling our house, I have never worked with people as competent, responsive, and courteous as Michael and his people. Selling a house is complicated. DeLeon has specialists for everything, from someone who knows the rental market should we have needed to rent an apartment short term, to the fixup project manager, to their handyman who oversees the contractors, to an attorney to help with our “disclosures,” to running the open house, to managing the title and escrow process. I believe everyone at DeLeon is on salary rather than commission, and they were all, clearly, there to help us. Communication was inevitably prompt and thorough. Michael and Ken DeLeon write about Palo Alto and the adjacent real estate market (check out their interesting and insightful articles even if you’re not a client). They know the area intimately and it really showed…We were VERY happy with our selling price, and, predictably, DeLeon handled everything very smoothly all the way through the close of escrow. I ’ve bought and sold several houses, and have worked with a variety of agents, some superb, some less so. Michael and his team are the best—spectacularly good.”
“It was a pleasure to work with DeLeon Realty. After interviewing several Realtors®, we selected Michael to represent us when we sold our home in Palo Alto. They took care of every step of the sale process with professionalism, never being pushy and aggressive. The sales process was done quickly and they sold our house in Palo Alto within 1 week or so, well above listing price.
This was the first home we have ever sold, and Michael helped us…with his professionalism and knowledge. Their team who handled my listing was professional, attentive, and flawlessly executed the sale from beginning to end. Even though I was not in the state, they would promptly let me know of the updates and I had nothing to worry about.
I would very highly recommend the DeLeon Realty team to anyone selling a home in the Peninsula area, and will definitely recommend family and friends to them.”
“I couldn’t be happier with Michael…and the entire DeLeon Realty team. The team-based model they used to market and sell our home worked like a charm. I don’t know why everyone else doesn’t do it the DeLeon Way.”
“I can’t recommend DeLeon Realty enough. They transformed our property over the course of a week, without calling us every hour. And then, they got us a sale price well above our expectations. This is the future of real estate. DeLeon Realty is playing chess in a field of checkers players. I strongly suggest that you talk to them if you’re thinking of selling.”
