I don’t even know where to start. Jaleesa has been a complete blessing to my husband and I! We met her at one of her open houses a couple of years ago. She was not pushy by any means, but always there to help and answer questions, even before we asked her to formally represent us. Jaleesa helped us define our priorities and found some homes for us to look at that we would never have given a second thought about. She was very patient as we kept changing our minds….
After about 6 months, we found our home. It was a pocket listing in San Juan Capistrano. A beautiful home that met all of our needs and more! And the price was less than what we had been looking at for a much newer home in perfect condition. Jaleesa made the escrow process painless. She kept us updated on the escrow progress and answered all of our questions promptly. She is highly responsive, organized, and detail oriented. She sent us almost all documents electronically, which saved a great deal of time.
It was because of Jaleesa’s professionalism, her sweet and kind spirit, her integrity and her great taste, that we asked her to list our former home.
Again, our experience was nothing less than wonderful. Although it fell out of escrow once, it was only a matter of hours before Jaleesa had found us another buyer. Even at the end of escrow when things can get very volatile and tension is high, she had such a calming spirit. She even went to our home and fixed a few things herself!! She went far beyond the call of duty to help close the deal seamlessly! I don’t know what we would have done without her.
She is the best realtor I have ever worked with and can’t speak more highly of her.

Jaleesa Peluso helped my boyfriend and I rent a home in East side Costa Mesa. She made the process super easy and went to bat for us to make sure we stood out as the perfect tenant for her owner. She also helped us negotiate all our needs along with the needs of the owner. Not the usual for renters this day! Jaleesa is our go to girl!

– M. Falk (Tenant in Costa Mesa)

Jaleesa was wonderful. Early on, before we were even really ready to begin looking for a home seriously, and without any strings attached, Jaleesa began sending us links to available homes that met our initial criteria. Because we started early, she quickly learned our likes/dislikes and began modifying the search criteria to help zero in on homes we would really be interested in. When it was time to select an agent, our choice was clear. This strategy would end up making our search time out looking at houses much more time efficient. We found Jaleesa to be extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and just a pleasure to work with. She always responded to our our texts and emails quickly when we had questions, and took the time to teach us along the way. Most importantly, she provided honest feedback and opinions to help us make good decisions. If/when we sell this home, she will definitely be our agent. I highly recommend Jaleesa to be your agent.

– S. Caro (Buyer in Lake Forest)

She’s wonderful. Professional, friendly and full of knowledge. She knows her area and has a lot of good advise. Jaleesa is local and knows the Laguna Beach area well. We used her to rent our home in Laguna Beach and she did a great job finding the tenant and screening them thoroughly.

– T. Zimmerman (Landlord in Laguna Beach)

I had a great experience finding a rental in Laguna Beach thanks to Jaleesa. She was attentive to what I wanted, patient with all my questions and acted quickly on opportunities due to knowledge of the market. More over, she genuinely wanted to help me find a home that was right for me. Jaleesa made the entire process very easy and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.
