Celebrating 30 plus years in the Real Estate industry, the bubbly Leanne de Souza has spent most of her life in the Vancouver area and is very familiar with British Columbia’s lower mainland region. Since childhood, Leanne maintains a genuine love for two things: people and houses. Testifying to her giftedness in her career is a track record of consistently selling, no matter the market. In 2003 Leanne and family settled in the South SurreyWhite Rock area and has been there ever since.

Over the years, Leanne has enjoyed working with people from all walks of life, backgrounds and ages. As well, Leanne finds herself in the midst of being in the “sandwich generation”, describing herself as a “pre-senior”, with adult children launching into independence, and parents facing the challenges that come with aging. Leanne has recently obtained her SRES® (Seniors’ Real Estate Specialist designation). A large part of Leanne's clientele has shifted to down-sizers navigating the many aspects towards retirement living. Because of her own experience, she is very familiar with their concerns, like when to move, when to stay, financing, and accessibility. The SRES certification has given Leanne contacts in the senior-living community and the resources to walk through these steps, with empathy for the challenges that come with the downsizing season.

Moving is one of life’s greatest stresses. Understandably, for seniors the years of emotional attachment might add to the difficulty of beginning a new chapter but looking ahead to a lower-maintenance leisurely lifestyle, especially with a Realtor® who understands the unique challenges that come with selling a home, eases the process.

Leanne is always open to meet for a cup of tea with anyone who has questions or concerns about real estate as it pertains to their unique situation. Face-to-face remains her favourite form of communication (as it has been for over 30 years!) with the understanding that it is no-obligation and non-pressure. Ask anyone who has met her, she is the real deal and puts her heart into every transaction and relationship.

Leanne was wonderful! She helped my sister buy a property long-distance from Toronto, and then helped her line up renos. Leanne's customer service went above and beyond. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for both warmth and excellent professionalism. - Barbara Richards

Reply:    Thank you Barbara! What a task it was to help your sister purchase a property without physically being here. I was so grateful that you were her eyes and ears. I am also happy she managed to purchase a condo before the market took off. It was such a pleasure to work with you both. You must love having your sister so close by.

I referred Leanne to my mother-in-law to sell her apartment. which she actually sold 3 times due to two previous buyers who backed out due to financing. She provided awesome communication on progress and assistance in eliminating grinding by the buyers on inspection. Such a PRO! My mother-in-law is so very pleased with her and thankful for such a great realtor. Our recommendation is for any seller (particularly if you are elderly) to call Leanne - she is the best! PS - I'm a Realtor in Calgary since 2005 and I don't hand out praise willy nilly. - Gord Sears

Leanne is the perfect blend of friendliness and professionalism and made the stressful process of purchasing a home all the easier. I have a non-English speaking family with little knowledge on homes and Leanne was very patient with us, never pressuring us into anything, and showed us her knowledgeability by giving sound advice and tips we could never even have thought of. She is extremely responsive, beyond working hours, through illness or injury, and was happy to answer any questions we had. She also was able to connect us with her equally friendly and professional contacts for extraneous work we needed to have done, and supported us in every way, all the way.

We would highly recommend Leanne to our friends or family. Her long career in real estate shows through in her knowledge and how she “took us through the process”. She is very professional and is well connected. “Leanne” was the first name that came to mind more recently when we were worrying over a house sitter. She solved that for us too. Leanne is a wonderful lady to work with! - Heather and Steve Ball

She always keeps her clients needs first in mind and works tirelessly to make sure they are taken care of.

I chose Leanne DeSouza as my agent from this Rate-My-Agent website, and I'm so glad I did! I was looking for someone who knew intimately the local White Rock real estate scene, and who was kind and who would represent MY interests. Leanne was patient - she showed me 38 condos, all of which conformed to my "must have" list and most of my "wish list". Over the weeks that she took me to see condos, she also helped me to downsize and stage my previous condo. I bought a great condo with Leanne's help, and my previous condo was sold in short order by Leanne. It's been eight months since all that happened, and I'm still a happy customer. If I move again, I would go straight to Leanne. Thank you Leanne! - Nancy Coates

As a first-time homebuyer, I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else in my corner. Leanne went above and beyond, every step of the way, to ensure that I had everything I needed to feel completely comfortable with the purchase. Anyone who is looking for a highly knowledgeable realtor who will put your needs first should get in touch with Leanne. I, for one, will be recommending her services to everyone I know. - Marisa Lee

Our family has worked with Leanne for the purchase and sale of three family homes over the past 30 years. She also represented us through the purchase and sale of an investment property. Most recently Leanne guided us through the emotionally difficult process of selling my mother’s home as we moved her to a senior’s facility. Leanne’s commitment to integrity was evident at every turn during the entire process and she showed great sensitivity to the needs of the parties involved. She assisted us before listing with advice about what repairs or changes would be advantageous for the sale of the home and helped with staging. When an offer was made on the property, Leanne handled the negotiation process with honesty, sensitivity and attention to detail. Mom’s feelings about the process were always the first consideration. We will always be grateful for how kind and professional Leanne was during the whole process of selling Mom’s place. Our family would not hesitate to call on Leanne again in the future for the sale or purchase of a home or investment property because of her professionalism, integrity and kindness. Highly recommend! - Kim Navarro

Leanne was the epitome of efficiency, tirelessness, and professionalism and helped us find and purchase our first home together. She helped us navigate the selling and buying process so well that it was very low stress for us. She was very authentic in all her dealings with us which was key in us figuring out what we really needed and wanted, as we didn't know this in the beginning - but she was able to steer us towards a realistic vision. We would definitely call on her again, and highly recommend her as she is a really great realtor and an awesome person, who definitely listens to the needs of her clients and advises accordingly. Thank you Leanne! - Sharon and Gord

I'm the sister who was wingman when my sister Nancy sold her condo on Thrift and bought a condo on North Bluff, both in White Rock. I found Leanne on Rate-My-Agent and had high hopes. Wow! First, Leanne (and her wonderful helper Elsa) staged the condo, and that involved some major shuffling. Leanne prepared high quality marketing material, including professional photos and someone who measured and made the floor plan. She began showing the place - and there were interested people that same day! Meantime, she took us (including yet another sister) to six or eight places to look at in a day, and there were many days. What patience! We had prepared a list of "must haves", "want-to-have" and a budget. Leanne took us to places that met those criteria, and even showed one that was lower budget and one that was higher budget, just so we would know the difference. At last, we entered a condo that was just a little different from our list, and THAT WAS IT! And Leanne's job was not nearly finished. Now she finessed all the details, from inspection, to lawyer, to making the deals for both the sold and the bought condo, and the timing. Oh my. Quality! And then, she had contacts for everything else - from packing help, to moving, to handyman services. So YES, we recommend Leanne, whether you are selling, buying, or both. She knows the area of White Rock, she knows buildings and builders. And I don't' know how she manages to stay so cheerful and optimistic - we surely appreciated her! I wouldn't consider anybody but Leanne for our future real estate transactions! Pamela and Nancy - Pamela Baxter

Leanne is the best realtor we have ever had! We initially contacted her based on the huge volume of excellent online reviews. When you work with Leanne, it is quickly apparent how experienced and knowledgeable she is in the world of real estate. She is very friendly, upbeat and has good rapport with other agents. This greatly helped us succeed in purchasing a property in our price range during this overly competitive market. Leanne responds very promptly with communication and she was quite helpful in working around our availability when we were viewing properties. We would not hesitate to recommend Leanne! - Brendan Keith & Simone Salazar

What a pleasure working with Leanne over these past few years! Leanne heart shines through and it’s so clear she cares about her clients – not just about buying or selling another property. When Anna and I recently got married and decided to purchase a condo, Leanne was there for us, guiding our way through the multitude of options in White Rock and Surrey. Her personal experience in this market was invaluable – as was her patience with our lengthy search. Leanne’s personal touch and dedication really helped us find our dream home in Edgewater. As a matter of fact, we held our reception right in the fantastic amenities center here! Leanne even helped us set out our catering during the wedding! Talk about personalized service! When the time came for Anna and I to buy our dream home – on Vancouver Island, we immediately called Leanne. On an extremely tight deadline, Leanne prepared an amazing feature sheet and write-up. She gave us just the right advice on pricing and how best to present our condo for sale. She wisely had a floor-plan professionally taken – which confirmed our unit was indeed larger than our strata documents specified. Leanne told us she would do her best to have our home in Edgewater sold by my birthday (November 25). Two showing later, we had an offer on November 28! And a second offer on November 30. Today (December 3), we had our final subject’s removed and we are on our way to our island home. Well Leanne, you are a few days late, but what an amazing job you have done!!! We can’t thank you enough for your hard work, professionalism and wise advice! Warmly, - George and Anna

December 05, 2020

Reply:    It was an absolute pleasure to assist you with your real estate needs. I am so happy we were able to stick to your deadline. It was my goal to get your home sold quickly in time for your birthday. As you told me, you are use to celebrating your birthday for a whole week - thus I was keeping this in my mind. :). I wish you a belated Happy Birthday; Merry Christmas and joy and good health Island style for 2020.

As a first time home buyer I found the whole process overwhelming but Leanne's knowledge and thorough research helped me immensely. She also pushed us to look at properties that we would not have normally chosen - based on her experience and insight - which ended up in a successful purchase for myself and my husband. Leanne was diligent and extremely hard working in accommodating our needs and wants and we are so grateful to her. We are now happy home owners! - Sharon Arwick

Reply:    It was fun finding the right home. I remember we started our home search thinking a one level townhome would be desirable. We ended up finding the perfect 2 story with basement. Now you have a place for all those hobbies and games Gord enjoys! I am so glad you are enjoying your home and privileged to help you find just the right place to call home.

Leanne has been my trusted realtor for almost 30 years. With patience and expertise, she guided my husband and I through the process of purchasing our starter home, a townhouse in Richmond. When our daughter was born, and we decided to move nearer my parents, Leanne was there once more. Tirelessly multitasking and networking, she secured us a successful sale. Then, using her excellent communication skills, Leanne gained a detailed understanding of what we wanted in our next home, and used this to search out suitable listings for us to view. Thus, it wasn’t long before we walked into the house that would be home for the next 20 years. When it came time to downsize in 2016, there was no question of whom we wanted to assist us. I was teaching full-time and feeling overwhelmed. Leanne went above and beyond, helping get our home ready to show, skillfully marketing it, and securing us an excellent price. Leanne is a realtor, and person, whom you can trust absolutely to put your needs and interests first. Furthermore, she employs her wealth of experience and skill to create a positive process and outcome for her clients. Needless to say, I recommend Leanne without hesitation. - Tamsin McKenzie

From the first time we met Leanne, when we didn't have an agent, we knew that she was the one that we wanted to list our property and to help us find a new property. She wasn't pushy, and listened to our needs and wants for both the buy and sell. She worked tirelessly to help complete our sale and didn't let up on showing as many properties that were on the market for our particular requirements. Even once the sale and purchase went through she provided references for some excellent trades people to help with the remodel of our new property. - Tony Hadlow

As a first-time homebuyer, I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else in my corner. Leanne went above and beyond, every step of the way, to ensure that I had everything I needed to feel completely comfortable with the purchase.

Once the sign was up by 9 am we got the first call. This person bought the house in an hour time. I would recommend her highly. She is excellent; kind and considerate.
