    Lisa Levin is a consummate professional. She is thoroughly knowledgeable in her field and successfully imparts her expertise to the layperson in very understandable terms. While she serves many people and works with many properties simultaneously, she made us feel as if we were her only clients, always putting our interests and concerns first and foremost. Her engaging and personable manner are so welcome in the difficult task of selling a home. Our transaction was a somewhat difficult one - with the owners being 2 family trusts. She handled this without a problem and when a concern came up, she dealt with it efficiently and expeditiously. She found us top-dollar buyers and got us a price well over asking. I would enthusiastically recommend Lisa Levin to anyone who wants an outstanding realtor.

    I would leave a thousand stars if I could, Lisa is beyond awesome!!!!! If I ever had a question Lisa was always there to explain it. Her team works on a different level of professionalism. I’m so happy I put my trust in her, she always went out of her way to be there for me. I’m only upset we’re not going to bump into each other around town from time to time her smile made me smile, Lisa is amazing!!

    I don't even know where to start....there are no accurate words to express how wonderful Lisa is, or how exceptional our experience was in working with her. After losing my mom, we began the painful process of selling her property. Lisa went above and beyond to minimize the stress and anxiety throughout the entire process. She managed EVERYTHING. I kept hearing from her "I will take care of it - you don't need to worry". And she did. Selling a property is not a 9 to 5 thing - she worked long hours and weekends - whatever was necessary. We are over the moon to have found Lisa, and should we need to do this again in the future would only want to work with her - she has spoiled us for anyone else. Without hesitation recommend her highly!

    Lisa was referred by a work colleague for a corporate relocation from Houston to LA. Initially we were going to rent in the South Bay, and ended up purchasing a home in Long Beach. Lisa reduced the stress of finding a place to live in such a competitive market. We had limited time to look at showings. Lisa (along with her assistant Ashima) put together an complete schedule in a tight window so we could see as much as possible. Once we found a home, she streamlined the entire process and was constantly working to make sure we were happy. She helped us put together a reasonable and competitive offer to guarantee we got the house. She recommended valuable inspections beyond the traditional inspection to make sure we knew the condition of the house in and out. She worked with the sellers and their agent to get the house in tip top shape after walkthrough. As this was a corporate relocation, she worked seamlessly with the relocation team and made sure everything was done correctly. After the horror stories we had heard about house hunting in LA, we were so thankful to have her as an advocate for us. It was a relief to have her in our corner, especially while we were trying to purchase while out of state. HIRE HER.

    Lisa is very dedicated & easy to work with. She helped my husband and me find what we will develop into our dream home in the Pacific Palisades. We started looking for complete homes and after she showed us a wide range of options we changed up our desires completely and decided we wanted to build our own dream home on a lot or from a tear down situation. She didn’t even blink at the shift in priorities and immediately started looking for the perfect fit. She was very easy to get a hold of. Throughout the entire process of looking for a home, whenever I called or text she would either immediately pick up or reach out within minutes. She is very committed to her clients day or night. She was very on top of the details during escrow and made purchasing a home fun and not stressful. She is someone who works hard to understand what you want and dedicates herself completely to making her clients happy. You can tell she cares about her clients outside of just a business transaction which makes working with her such a positive experience.

    Lisa is amazing. We met her in 2015-16. We were living in Florida and decided to move to CA. A long time friend of more than 50 years living in Long Beach recommended someone he knew in the business. After a month with him we realized he knew absolutely nothing about LA real estate. My nephew living in FL recommended Lisa, as he has been friends with her husband for years and she was in the real estate market in Manhattan Beach. We met her and fell in LOVE!! She was honest, knowledgable and helped us narrow down our search area which was much too broad and found us our dream CA house in North Redondo Beach. We loved the house, location and the area. Absolutely perfect for us. Five minutes from the 405 and any number of stores and markets. We lived there for four years and then due to Covid, we decided to move to the East Coast to be near our kids who live in Brooklyn and our new granddaughter. When we told Lisa we were moving she was devastated but sold our house in a flash and with hugs and tears we all said good bye in August 2020. Now let me tell you about the inner Lisa. Back to when we started looking in CA with the first agent who knew nothing and was not even knowledgable about filling out the final sales documents in order for him to get his commissions, Lisa offered to show him how to do it or even offered to fill it out for him. This is someone that Lisa shared the commission with but he did absolutely nothing in helping us to find our house. That's truly, the incredible Lisa. Love you!

    The term World-class gets used far too often but in the case of Lisa Levin it doesn't go far enough! Having lived in different continents, countries and states we have had the opportunity to work with many realtors, all good in their own way. In addition, we have several friends who are realtors here in LA. We therefore have high expectations, extensive experience, and lots of options when it comes to working with real estate professionals. Put simply, and with the utmost respect to all of them, Lisa is peerless. Her professionalism, commitment, insight, knowledge and work ethic make her a truly World-class operator. We have brought, sold and rented multiple properties in the South Bay, and since finding Lisa have only ever worked with her. On our most recent purchase Lisa not only found the right home, helped with negotiation, oversaw the inspection process and provided introductions to anyone and everyone we needed to turn our house into a home, she also chased, prodded and guided the selling agent, developer, title company and mortgage company to make sure we closed the sale in the (ambitious) timeframe that all parties had originally agreed to. We cannot recommend Lisa highly enough, and if you are in two minds about which agent to go with, we promise that you will NEVER regret the choice to go with Lisa Levin.

    Lisa is just the best. We are so grateful that she came into our lives to help us get our dream home. There aren't words to describe the passion and kindness she shows to her clients. We're lucky to know her.

    Lisa helped my husband and I get our dream house in a very, very competitive market. Not only was she incredibly informative, very dedicated and always willing to answer our questions (whatever time of day!) but she was always honest with us. We love her so much that we have referred her to numerous friends and late last year she help my parents close on a beautiful house in Palos Verdes! More importantly, Lisa has become a good friend to us whom we can always depend on when in need. You won't ever go wrong with having Lisa in your corner!

    Lisa is hands down the best realtor in the South Bay. She is always willing to go the extra mile for her clients and consistently went above and beyond on our deal. She found us our rental when we first moved here working with us across the country. This year she helped us purchase our first home in California. On top of being an excellent realtor, she is a lovely person and wonderful to work with each day. Lisa makes what is often a stressful experience that much better.

    Lisa came highly recommended and exceeded all expectations. She knows her stuff, is highly service oriented, keeps her clients up to date, is ethical and has excellent judgment. we will seek her assistance again, and I recommend her without reservation to anyone searching for excellence in a realtor.

    Our experience with Lisa was just amazing. She was terrific! Always had a smile. Always willing to help and make things easier. Always using her expertise and experience to move us to our close. We are so glad we went with Lisa to sell our Hermosa Beach condo. Thanks so much!

    Amazing realtor, wouldn't deal with anyone else. I refer all of my friends and family to her!


    Lisa was wonderful. We were new to the area, so she offered so much information about schools, lifestyle, property proximity to things that could be concerns that I wouldn't have thought about. And she made sure we followed all of the California real estate timing rules -- coming from out of state everything was different. Most importantly, she held to a crazy accelerated timeline for us!

    There are a lot of things to look for in an agent; for us it came down to trust and knowledge of the South Bay. After working with multiple agents, we placed our trust in Lisa and couldn't be happier. While other agents focused on what they wanted to sell us, Lisa focused on what we wanted and then worked hard to get us exactly what we wanted

    We could not be more pleased working with Lisa! She is always very professional, accommodating, and takes pride in making her client's needs her first priority. We were extremely impressed with her attentiveness and flexibility. She is very connected in the community and provides her clients with the best solutions for their circumstances. Lisa makes you feel at ease and approaches every situation with a pleasant demeanor. It has been a pleasure working with her!

    Lisa is the consummate professional who is a creative and determined deal maker. Lisa makes her career a priority. Her background in both commercial and residential real estate play well together. She is savvy, but oh so very easy to work with. This was the smoothest real estate transaction because of her ability not only to put the deal together, but to follow up. She has an incredible group of vendors who are able to accommodate her needs in an immediate fashion. She'll also brighten your day with her upbeat personality and constant smile.

    After being transferred from Australia to Los Angeles, I was absolutely delighted to have had Lisa help my wife and I friend a place to lice. Lisa is professional with a deep understanding of the market and an ability to listen and understand our needs. It made the whole process easy. It's clear that Lisa really ares about providing the best outcome for her clients and she was not satisfied until she delivered on a home that met our needs.

    Beyond your friendship, kindness and generosity, you are also a consummate professional. We have brought and sold five homes, each time working with a different realtor, and you stand alone in terms of customer service, network, dedication and determination. You made clear to us that you would be there at every step of the way and you were, in a meaningful way.
