What Our Clients Say

Michele has been absolutely spectacular & supportive throughout our home-buying process. He helped my parents purchase the home that I grew up in over 20 years ago, so naturally I was hopeful that he would be able to assist me throughout my journey as well. We came into contact in early 2018 to begin to search for a condo. However, we determined that we weren’t quite prepared to move forward at that time & put our search on hold. When we reached out to Michele again in late 2020 to resume our search, he welcomed us back with open arms & no hard feelings at previously putting our search on hold. Overall, he was always available for questions, made time to show properties, and was thorough in reviewing disclosure packages. 10/10 stars for my experience with Michele & team – thank you for everything!

When planning for the sale of our late father’s home and multi-unit rental properties in the East Bay, we naturally had the choice of many realtors. We chose Team Manzone based on Michele and Leslie’s very able management of the rental properties over the years. We were not disappointed! Team Manzone stepped in and provided excellent advice, project management and marketing for each of the transactions. From orchestrating works in preparation for selling to navigating through the current tenancies, Team Manzone managed matters with care, efficiency and attention to detail, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. Great peace of mind and confidence were maintained throughout the process based on the experienced counsel and consistent communication received from the team. We are very pleased with the outcomes and would recommend Team Manzone without hesitation!

Highly recommend! I appreciated Leslie and Michele's professionalism in selling our home. They were comfortable to work with as well as attentive, accommodating, and gracious - all of which helped make the entire process easy and less stressful. As an added bonus, I learned some things along the way! Thanks to their knowledge and experience, not only did the property sell within a week, it also sold over market."

I wanted to write and thank you both for what has been several years of exceptional service you have provided to Peggy and I both as property managers of Peggy’s Mom’s home which we had to convert to a rental property in Pleasant Hill in order to sustain her health care needs at an assisted living facility which came up on us extremely quickly. You both then not only helped us get the house rented in a week for the maximum amount possible, but you also both handled all of the paperwork and maintained the leases for us during the time the house was a rental. Once we no longer needed the house as a rental, you both came onsite identified needed upgrades and repairs to get the maximum return and help facilitate the money needed to complete the repairs. You also had a contractor you work with who completed the work in a timely fashion on budget and then got the house on the market and completed the sale in a very short time! After we completed the sale of the Pleasant Hill house, we started looking for a home in the Bay Area since we primarily live in the Lake Tahoe area but both Peggy and I work in the Bay Area. You showed us numerous properties, wrote several offers and finally after a lot of long hours and the most amazing amount of help and knowledge I could ever imagine you found us a great home to buy in the East Bay which required nothing more then a few cosmetic repairs mostly in the back yard for which you again came thru with a crew to do the work and get us in our new home in record time! We cannot express our gratitude for all you have done over the past years for us but also for friends we have referred who are currently using your property management expertise since they moved to Oregon and maintained their family home here in the Bay Area as a rental which you both currently manage. Thank you for all that you two have done for us over the years and I can without hesitation say if you want a real estate transaction that is handled in the most efficient and professional way possible, please use Michele and Leslie. If anyone would like a personal reference, please do not hesitate to call me anytime so I can answer any questions you may have.

“I was Blessed to find Leslie to list and sell my home. The first time I spoke to Leslie I knew she was the realtor for me. She was very knowledgable in her profession and proved to be more than I expected. Leslie was helpful providing me with other experts I needed to have a successful sale of my home. I highly recommend Leslie Dopp-Manzone to sell your property for you. You will have the best experience and the least stress selling your home.”

“Working with Leslie was a wonderful experience, your always told that buying a house is a long grueling experience, but Leslie made the process much easier. She explained everything along the way, if I had any questions I could always reach her. When we found the house that we wanted, Leslie stopped everything on her camping trip to hunt down some Internet to put a bid on our house. She made phone calls, sent emails, negotiated and went over and beyond what a realtor should do and we couldn’t be more grateful. She is a wonderful realtor to work with and I highly recommend her! Thank you so much Leslie, we love our new home and its all thanks to you!”

“Best Realtor ever! Leslie helped us find our dream home! She is very knowledgeable in the real-estate field. The process was the normal “short sale” process, it went as smoothly as it could go. She is extremely intuitive and got back to us within minutes of any correspondence that transpired. Her negotiation skills are remarkable! We got our house at an excellent price! I am very happy all around with the services that she provided! I highly recommend Leslie for your Realtor need.”
Bought a Single Family home in Fairfield, CA.
We met Michele Manzone when he helped us rent our apartment in 2016. We discovered that he was a true professional, and our experience renting through him was quite enjoyable. He was prompt and efficient whenever we required any help/repairs in the apartment. When we decided to embark on our house hunt, we realized we did not have to look any further than the Manzone team to help us with the search. Being first time buyers, we relied entirely on their advice and longstanding experience as REALTORS in the area. The Manzone team is reliable, professional and make the effort to provide a comfortable experience for first time buyers. Buying a house for the first time is certainly an intimidating task, but their guidance and patience helped us find a house that we truly loved. Their experience with the area and their expertise in being able to read a house is very evident on a tour. We are more than happy to recommend the Manzone team for your house buying needs, and certainly look forward to working with them in the future should we happen to require realtor services.

The Manzone team did an excellent job marketing our home. Their unique approach to that effort brought the desired result , A QUICK SALE OF OUR HOME AT A SATISFACTORY PRICE. No expense was spared producing a colleague of photos displaying our home both in a brochure and an Internet presentation. This effort was also expanded to the international market. The Manzoneteam ( Leslie and Michel) were always available to answer any question or to give assistance in any way. Their follow through was extraordinary and surpassed my previous experiences with other Realtors. THEY ARE THE BEST.

Leslie and Michele were awesome in helping my wife and I sell our home and also buy our new home. They made sure we were comfortable through the whole process and made sure we got what we were looking for. We highly recommend them!”
Jerry and Annalyssa Shipley
The Manzone’s did such a great job with helping us sell and buy our house! Very professional all the way through and always available. They really took the stress out of the home buying process so that we could go about our days. Communication was great and it was never too late for them to answer a call….or maybe I was keeping them up, ha! Either way, one thing is for sure, we will be using them again when the time comes! My wife and I strongly recommend them! They get it done. Thanks again Team Manzone!
Michael and Tanya Vila
Leslie helped us with the purchase of our first home over 21 years ago and she also helped us sell and move into our second home. Most recently, The Manzone Team helped us sell my parents home and was very supportive and caring throughout the whole process. It sold in less than a week and over the listing price! They are professional, honest and give great advice and customer service. I highly recommend working with The Manzone Team.
Mari Rogers
Michele and Leslie were so helpful throughout the process of my first home purchase. They personally showed me several houses so I could get a better understanding of what I was looking for, and answered my calls and texts no matter what day or time it was to make sure I was comfortable and answer questions throughout the process. If you want someone that will keep your best interests in mind when buying a home, contact Michele and Leslie. Highly recommended!

“Consummate Professionalism” is the hallmark of the Manzone Team - what you need when dealing with so important an investment.
Eileen Barsi
We have worked with Leslie twice and we have been 100% pleased both times. She is professional, motivated, very easy to work with and she is very savvy in the real estate industry. Her attention to detail maximized our success when selling our homes and I am confident our outcome could not have been better. One of our homes was a trust sale, which has to be handled very differently than a standard sale. Leslie was able to take on our trust sale with ease and gave us great advice every step of the way. Highly, highly recommended for all your real estate needs.

Leslie is very professional and made sure we understood the buying process. She helped me and my wife purchase our first home in El Cerrito, she is very detailed and guided us from start to finish, we will refer her to all our family and friends - she is a 1st class realtor.

If you are selling a home or condo you should contact Michele and Leslie!! They are a dynamic duo and were phenomenal in getting me the top price for my condo. This was my first experience in selling a property but with Michele and Leslie in charge it was surprisingly painless and stress free. They were always in my corner working diligently for my best interest. It was great to have someone I knew I could trust who made me the priority. Leslie has an eye for staging that turned my condo into a model home. The photos by the professional photographer they used were incredible and the condo really showed like a model. The virtual tour was spectacular!! I could not have asked for anything more. They are amazing!!
