    Leanne is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic professional who took away most of the anxiety surrounding the sale of our house. She knows the market very well - especially in the S. Surrey area. She was recommended to us by former neighbours and friends who had used her services. Leanne went above and beyond our expectations and became not only our agent but our friend. The presentation brochure she produced on our house was so beautiful, we would have been keen buyers if we weren’t the sellers! We would highly recommend Leanne to anyone seeking to buy or sell a house.

    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. 

    Michelle Kim purchased townhome June 2022

    Leanne is an amazing realtor. She sold our home quickly for asking price. She is helping us find our new home. She is incredibly knowledgeable, hardworking and a joy to work with. She is such a pleasure to work with. Always available when you need her. Leanne is the only realtor I would recommend.

    Renee Bellefleur sold her townhome in White Rock. June 16, 2022

    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 bought and sold in 2019

    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.

    Leanne is very friendly, kind and caring. She is a good communicator and is very professional. She went above and beyond to help the sale of my condo go smoothly. She did a wonderful job and it was a great experience.

    Helen Olsen. May 2022

    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 Bought And Sold 2021 In White Rock

    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 Bought 2020

    We were so blessed to have Leanne as our realtor. Her bubbly personality, her constant availability as well as her wealth of experience made for a smooth and pleasant purchase of our condo.

    We had only been searching for a few weeks before Leanne found us our new home.

    She listened to what our desires were for a new place and was able to quickly narrow down what she showed us. She was helpful in locating the right place and even went the extra mile and booked the movers, reserved the elevator, and gave us the names of a few lawyers. She was such a blessing and her experience proved to be invaluable in helping us through the entire buying process. She was always checking to see how we were doing and was always available to answer our many questions / concerns.

    We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Leanne to any client looking for their forever home!

    Bruce & Elaine Jackson

    Anjali Chand

    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

    Working with Leanne has been the most surprisedly wonderful experience. Due to Covid, I have had to purchase a B.C.condo from Toronto site unseen. From our first call, i knew i had made the right choice. Leanne has gone above and beyond with her attentive, proactive service. I hope I never move again, but if I do, I would not hesitate to use Leanne's services again. Thank you Leanne!

    Margaret Spence Krewen

    Leanne was wonderful to work with during the recent sale of our house. She was very responsive and efficient. We listed with Leanne on Friday, the pictures and video was completed over the weekend and the house sold on Monday. Her passion and understanding of the real estate market gave us the confidence we were making the right decisions throughout the process of selling our family home. We will be calling Leanne again next time we need to buy or sell!

    Bruce & Mary-Ann

    Leanne was a true professional in a recent transaction. Her knowledge, experience, and expertise were second to none. I would have no hesitation about recommending Leanne. Not only does she have incredible market knowledge, her personality made the entire process of working with her fun. I strongly urge anyone that is looking for a world class realtor to contact Leanne!

    Brent Batten

    It has been a pleasure to work with Leanne with the sale of my parent’s apartment. She has been very patient answering all our questions and helping explain the process. Leanne was very good at keeping us informed and responds promptly to inquiries, also the marketing material was of very high quality. With Leanne you get a true professional with a warm demeanor. Highly recommend!

    Timo Myyra

    Leanne really cares about people and it is reflected in her work. Her upbeat personality provided much needed relief during the current property market craziness. She is very professional and went above and beyond to help with the property search. I swear she never sleeps as she is available at all hours. I highly recommend her.

    Diane Baylis

    "It was our absolute pleasure working with Leanne! She led us to our dream property quickly because she listened carefully to us and knew exactly what we were looking for. She was professional, informed and so very personable. Leanne was always accessible to us for each and every question which we were very appreciative for. Her boundless energy kept us positive and moving forward with a smile and determination. Thank you Leanne! We would and will recommend you to anyone who asks us if we know of an excellent realtor. "

    Rick Dubord

    When it came time for my father to sell his townhome and downsize to a retirement home, we had the good fortune to have Leanne de Souza recommended to us as a real-estate agent for the sale. Leanne was very helpful in the process helping my father through the process of the sale and being understanding of his concerns and needs at a time that can be quite stressful. During the sale my father became quite ill and required hospitalization. Leanne helped us navigate the sale of the townhouse and the difficult process of downsizing while being compassionate about the situation. Add in that during the final closing of the sale Covid-19 began lockdowns it was great to have someone with Leanne’s expertise on our side.


    Tom Caspersen son for seller 1-14888 24 Avenue

    Recently, Leanne guided my two brother’s and I though the sale of my Mother’s townhouse. It was a difficult task for us as we were grieving and dealing with all the things that come with the death of a loved one.

    Leanne worked diligently, gathering information and explaining the process to the three of us. She dealt with multiple communications daily with grace and kindness. Her professionalism and drive got us through the process of sales, offers, counteroffers, paperwork, legalities etc., all with compassion and care.

    Leanne was sensitive to our needs and was gently able to allow us to feel in control while at the same time she wanted the very best for us and strove to close the sale with the best offer possible.

    I will use Leanne again for any real estate need that I have.


    Michelle J. Merry

    Having seen your integrity and professionalism when selling another unit in our building about 18 months ago we said we would go to you if we decided to sell.

    As the real estate agent for our recent sale we found you knowledgeable, passionate, sincere, engaging and professional. Exactly who we wanted.

    Gayle Hogan and Peter McEwan

    From our first meeting with the bubbly, effervescent, caring Leanne to the conclusion of both our sale and purchase of another property, she has worked tirelessly. I like to refer to her as the “Energizer bunny” as she just doesn’t stop, making sure her clients are happy, even if it means haggling late into the night to get the best for them.

    Whereas most realtors I’ve met are there just to get a commission, Leanne actually cares about her client’s wishes and concerns, she brings with her thirty years of experience in the real estate market and a genuine love of the job with dealing with people. Not only do we know we made the right choice to choose her to list our property, but we have gained a life long friend.

    Anthony and Alicia Hadlow

    I would like to give my perspective on Leanne De Souza’s services as a realtor for my mom. Leanne helped my mom twice: to sell her house and downsize into a condo, and then later, to sell that condo and move into a retirement community.

    Leanne always showed herself to be an engaged, available, and trustworthy realtor. During this time my mom was starting to get confused about things but Leanne was always helpful. With my mom’s encouragement, Leanne was also in frequent communication with me about how the listing was going, how the market was changing and kept us updated. A deficiency was recognized in my mom’s suite that took coordination with the strata maintenance people and a contractor to fix. Leanne was very helpful and went beyond what we expected in coordinating with the strata manager to make repairs that were necessary for the sale, which was very helpful since I was out of town and my mom was starting to get confused and needed help.

    I found Leanne to be knowledgeable, helpful and trustworthy and I wish to recommend her to others in similar situations.

    Chris Fjell

    I’d like to recommend Leanne de Souza to you as the trustworthy and energetic realtor who can get your home sold. Her insights into timing the current market helped us sell our well-loved family home for full price just one day after the open house and two days after listing. The whirlwind pace of the process didn’t slow Leanne down at all. From helping us get our home ready to sell, to deciding on price, Leanne’s advice has been invaluable. I believe we would not have done so well had we not had Leanne on our team. And now that we are on the other side, looking for a new home to love, she is a patient, no pressure guide. She is willing to listen to all our ups and downs as we make this emotional decision, and always arrives with a big smile. We’ve called on Leanne to sell our last two homes and would not hesitate to do so again.

    Leanne Tremblay

    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!

    If you are looking for a caring competent realtor, look no further than Leanne De Souza.

    When we decided to sell our house, Leanne came to discuss it with us. We chose to move to a retirement home somewhere in the area; Leanne arranged for us to visit and lunch at five homes in this neighborhood.

    When we had chosen where we wanted to live, we put our house on the market. She held one open house and we sold the house, at more than our asking price, within three days. She arranged with a packer and a mover for us. We are pleased and comfortable in our new home.

    We have been delighted with her services; would highly recommend her to others.

    Eleanor & Grant Bracewell

    “We first met Leanne over 5 years ago when we first started looking to move. We couldn’t find anything we like and I guess we weren’t totally committed to moving. Over the years Leanne checked in with us and was very understanding and patient while we were looking for the perfect place to live. We got to know each other and became very comfortable with her advice and knowledge of the market. Once we found it Leanne jumped into action and negotiated with the sellers realtor and got us our dream townhouse. As we bought and hadn’t sold she quickly put our house up for sale guiding us along the way on how to present it and deal with our concerns if we didn’t sell.Leanne was successful in selling our house in 3 days and negotiated a selling price we were happy with. Leanne is very hardworking and available anytime we had a question or needed her. She is knowledgeable of all the legal requirements but more importantly she became a trusted friend. We are extremely satisfied with Leanne’s knowledge, understanding, and availability and we have highly recommended her to all our neighbours.”

    Dan and Heather Northam

    “I recommend Leanne de Souza to you as the realtor who recently orchestrated the purchase of my “perfect” condo and the sale of my “perfect” home. Because she knows the community so well, I found her to be endlessly resourceful with regard to the details of both the transactions and the details of moving. She has the necessary focus, energy and negotiation skills to facilitate decisions and bring things to closure to the satisfaction of all involved. She is a problem solver. She is dependable and entirely trustworthy. On a personal level, I found Leanne to be a good listener and an insightful and empathetic guide through the many decisions that need to be made during this stressful time.
    Should I require a realtor’s services in the future, I will, without question, call Leanne. I trust her to act in my best interests.”

    Elaine Friesen

    “Patient, professional, dedicated, tenacious, bubbly, genuine, warm spirited are just some of the words I would use to describe Leanne de Souza as our Realtor. She is truly an amazing Realtor and who goes above and beyond for her clients, always putting their needs first and putting you at ease through the stressful process of buying and selling your home. Her genuine care of her clients is evident along every step of the way and I would without question recommend Leanne to anyone who buying or selling their home.”

    Jamie and John

    “My dear Leanne,

    I miss you! You have been such a great help to me, way beyond just helping me and my dogs to find exactly the right house and all the stops and starts on the way. I have bought and sold many houses in towns and cities all over the world and I have no doubt that you have been the star realtor of the my real estate world. Your patience and guidance with my many changes of ideas and direction have been exemplary and you even found me a cleaning lady! Thank you so much. You’re the best!”

    Sheila Rimmer

    “Dear Leanne:

    We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for all the hard work that you have done on our behalf. You made the process of selling our home and purchasing a new one quite enjoyable. Indeed, we could not imagine using any Realtor other than you.

    Should anybody come forward to us making inquiries on finding a good Realtor, we will recommend you without hesitation. Your consistent upbeat demeanor and abundant smiles helped us through the daunting challenge of finding a new home. You were patient with us as we looked at home after home, not quite finding what we wanted. You were persistent and kept looking for us until we found something perfect.

    Equally, you did a wonderful job selling our home as well. You sold our home in record time for our building at a higher price than we were expecting. We appreciate all the hard work you did in following up on each viewing and always looking for more prospective buyers.

    I can say with the utmost confidence, that Leanne de Souza will always put her client first and will always strive to make them happy. You will be the first choice for all our Real Estate needs in the future.”

    John & Jamie Wollezin

    “Dear Leanne,

    Now that we are preparing to move I thought it would be a good time to drop you a line and let you know how pleased we are with the service you have provided. We felt like we were dealing with a friend and not just a realtor. The fact that you were able to get us top dollar for our home is very gratifying. When a person sells or buys real estate it can be a very worrisome experience. You took a large portion of that worry off of our shoulders. Your whole attitude gave us comfort in knowing that our property was in good hands. We really appreciate your frequent phone calls to keep us informed how things were progressing. We have enjoyed your pleasant personality and professionalism and look forward to seeing you in the future. We feel that we can highly recommend you and the service you provide to any of our friends and family and anyone else buying or selling real estate.

    We wish you every success possible. You deserve it. “

    Larry & Shirley Lamothe

    “Throughout the entire process, from filling out the listing documents, to accepting the sale, you were extremely professional and attentive. You conducted your open houses in a professional manner with good results, and always followed up promptly with feedback information from all of the realtors that showed our home. You are also very well respected by the strata council members in this building……

    The listing information that you provided was very informative. We appreciated your use of the “virtual tour” as it is an excellent tool for presenting properties to buyers. We noticed that many other realtors that were selling units in our building did not even put pictures on their listings.

    It was a pleasure working with you on the sale of our home, and we are very happy with the final results which gave us a sale in a timely manner at an excellent price. We will recommend you as a realtor to anyone wishing to deal with a professional and will certainly be contacting you when it is time to sell our next home.

    Thank you for selling our property, and we invite you to come visit us when we finally get to our new place. ”

    Doug & Connie Scott

    “I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the exceptional job you have done regarding the sale of my home. To my astonishment, my unit was sold in less than 3 weeks from the time it had been listed. As a result of your web site exposure and the personal attention you have provided, my property sold for a larger amount than the asking price.

    I will not hesitate to call on you for any of my future real estate needs and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone who may require this service. “

    Renee Dow

    “Dear Leanne:

    Please accept my sincere thanks for your friendly, professional help during my recent home purchase. I appreciated your down-to-earth approach to the whole process which, I imagine, could have been much trickier, especially since it was a case of dual agency.

    Thank you also for your prompt follow-up on every detail. You were very efficient and it was a pleasure doing business with you! “

    Celina Owen

    “To whom it may concern, I would like to take this opportunity to compliment Leanne de Souza on her effort given to help me find a home. I came to HomeLife Benchmark Realty Corp knowing only that I would like to have a place to live, and Leanne guided me from there. My price range was quite low, but even with such a substantial restriction, she was able to find multiple units in multiple complexes that were within my meager budget. I spent roughly a month looking for an apartment with Leanne, and she was very helpful and happy with all of my requests to see multiple apartments in the evenings when it was convenient for me. In the end, Leanne’s contacts in the real estate industry led us to a very unique opportunity to find an exceptional apartment at a very reasonable price that was available immediately. At that point I still did not know what to do, and Leanne assisted in every step of the purchase procedure, from analyzing the minutes of the strata council to finding an excellent mortgage broker. Having enjoyed my home purchase, I am now living happily ever after in my new apartment thanks to Leanne de Souza.”

    Andrew Ball

    “We have known Leanne for over 10 years. Leanne will be our one and only choice. Working with Leanne means you’re her top priority available for all details of buying or selling. We have never met any other realtor whose integrity and honesty come close to hers. If we were rating hotels, Leanne would be 5 star.”

    Roland & Eden Tamaray

    “I know from past experience that very few agents take the time to explain all the details the way you did. I was very gratified that my wishes regarding price and what I was willing to include remained paramount importance in your negotiations on my behalf.”

    Nancy Fehr

    “Leanne de Souza, just recently performed miracles for us…

    Leanne is one in a million…

    …never stopped smiling

    We would recommend her, unconditionally to anyone, who needs the service of a realtor. We would never use anyone else.”

    Scott & Shelly Johnson

    “Thank you a lot for your cooperation in the sale of my property. I’ll remember you and pray your family [sic] blessed by God forever. And also I wish your business and company would be flourished not only in the current but also the future.”

    Sung Tae & Young Si Kim

    “In September we began our search for a real estate agent. There were many unsuccessful interviews with a variety of agents who worked for numerous real estate companies. As our search continued, it was by shear chance that we met Leanne de Souza of HomeLife Benchmark Realty Corp. We had called her to view one of her listings. As we sat and talked afterwards, we realized that she was an extremely boisterous person and best of all an “honest” one. From that moment on she had won our trust. It was with great pleasure that she assisted us in the sale of our townhouse, and then with the purchase of our new home. She is a sincere, caring individual who honestly loves what she does for a living, and it shows. Never, for us, has a real estate agent worked so hard and made it seem so effortless. We never felt as though our requests were a “bother”. She will always remain our real estate agent of choice, but we like to consider her a new family friend. In the future, we will continue to recommend Leanne de Souza to our friends and family.”
