Real Estate Agents (562) 493-6601
So mine is a different type of review. I actually bought my place from the agent, Erika Shapiro, she wasn't my buyer's agent. But I wanted to write a review on her anyways because if I ever sell my place, and if she's still in business, I would absolutely have her sell it for me. I also highly recommend any of my friends and colleagues to use her as their agent.
Even as a seller's agent, she was so professional, friendly, and my agent was actually quite Green in the field. She didn't take advantage of him. She was so nice and friendly and was always willing to take his call to answer my questions. Additionally, Erika is an amazing resource for Leisure World as she lives where she sells. That is handy because she knows everybody, she knows the rules, she knows the whole area, and she knows all the idiosyncrasies as well LOL
My friends are jealous that at 56 years old, I just squeaked by purchasing a place in here. It is beautiful, mint condition, everything new, and is actually Erika's condo she was selling/that I purchased. She has impeccable taste and remodeled the whole condo so it was modern, fresh, and it just so happens to have the best view overlooking the green belt. Of course everywhere is a green belt but it at least does not include the view of parking lot.
I have already referred her to quite a few of my friends at the University and they're hoping within the next year to look and purchase in Leisure World. They are excited to use her as they know how much I really enjoyed working with her and still continue to do so! I text her once a week for information and she is more than happy to find out but more often than not she already knows the answer. She's funny, personable, and she is not like the typical resident here, but neither am i!
I highly recommend her as your agent. I cannot say enough good things about her. She made the whole house buying process so smooth and taught my agent a lot LOL. I almost wish she was my agent, but buying from her was just as good as having her represent me!
Seriously, if you are looking for someone who knows everything about Leisure World and will give it to you straight and honest, but yet with an amazing sense of humor, use Erika! She will make the whole buying, or even selling process, so smooth and easy. And she has great taste and can tell you whether the upgrades are worth it or not when you are looking at places. She knows everybody and can put you in touch with her contacts. She's an excellent agent and resident to keep in touch with.
Sure, there are other Realtors around that may be more "well known", but that doesn't necessarily mean more experience. I spoke with them before initially when I was first looking at buying in Leisure World before I had an agent. They were rude, condescending, and didn't know that I was old enough to purchase in here. Which is too bad for them because I would definitely have made them more money than some of the other people buying in the mutuals that they sell. Aaaannnddddd I definitely actively discourage others from using them. So I'm working against them and putting all my recommendations with Erika. I am 1000% about customer service, and that's what Yelp is about. I had the best experience with her, regardless that she was not my agent, but she impressed me so much, I'm absolutely willing to give her name to everyone I know.
Hopefully this review will add more points to your decision to go with her. ~ Carmela S.
Are you going to live in Leisure World, then look no farther than the top sales person, Erika Shapiro. I didn't realize it when I walked in, but lucky me, she was the only one there when I first stepped in. She listens to your needs and takes you to as many places. I was specific with my criteria, and she knew exactly what to show me. She also knew what houses were under contingency and as a result, I end up buying a place that was not listed. I now have my retirement home and it is really nice! ~ Darrell K.
I had a great experience with Carol Friedland. While I am not ready to buy yet she was what I consider a friendly, well knowledgeable realtor. She showed me multiple properties and all the amenities and told me how wonderful it is to live in the complex. She took a lot of time with me and never got impatient. I will definitely go back to her when I am ready to buy! ~ Debbie M.
Joanie Korman made it so easy! Escrow just closed on my mom's apartment. It was a breeze. Joanie helped us prep the apartment for sale, gave great advice on right-pricing it, and pretty much took charge of the full process. She even facilitated some of the necessary repairs and always kept me well informed. She's definitely a 5-Star agent. ~ Hilda S
