Client Reviews

Here are some examples of how we have made a positive change in the lives of our clients:

"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 had me complete a survey about the house to give feedback to the owner. I had never been asked to do that before. What a great idea!

She was not pushy by any means, but always there to help and answer questions, even before we asked her to formally represent us. At the time, we didn't know where we wanted to live, but she set up a personal website for us and would put homes in it for us to look at. This process lasted almost a year an a half until we were at a place in life where we could actually seriously start looking for our forever home. 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."

Don and Nina F. / Buyer in San Juan Capistrano/ Seller in Irvine

"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

"Jaleesa listed and leased our Laguna Beach house. 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

"Moving to California as a multi-generational family, we had many boxes to check to meet everybody’s requirements. Jaleesa is knowledgeable and she patiently helped us to find our new home as she guided us through each step in a market that is currently not a buyers one. We highly recommend Jaleesa to help you find your new home in a smooth and professional manner."

Kimy M. / Buyer in Ladera Ranch

"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

"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."

L. Tanattanawin / Tenant in Laguna Beach

"Over and Above!!! Jaleesa is a amazing at what she does! She is patient, kind and really listens to your needs. This entire home purchasing process was a breeze for me and I credit all of that to her. Jaleesa helped me find exactly what I was looking for and negotiated the best deal and absolutely had my best interest in mind the whole time. If you are looking for an amazing realtor to represent you for all of your real estate needs look no further!"

Allison K. / Buyer in East Side Costa Mesa

"Excellent experience with Jaleesa in renting my town home. Very professional and I was able to get a qualified candidate within a few days. Unit posting was very good, showing my place in a very good light. I would definitely use Jaleesa again and would recommend her to anyone."

Bill S. / Landlord in Irvine

"Jaleesa cares and shows amazing attention to detail, so I didn't have to. Here's my story. Our home in Laguna Beach was flooded by a broken pipe and we needed a rental for one month for our family of 5 (Plus two golden retrievers.)
I randomly happened upon Jaleesa, and boy are we grateful i did. We couldn't find anything to meet our needs, and she happened to be one of the people who represented renters in the area. The house(s) she represented didn't fit our schedule needs, but she took my number 'in case anything came up.'
And Wow! She was not passive, but went way out of her way to make calls for me, to set up appointments, to show up at the property we ended up renting for our walk through. Her service was impeccable!
I kept thinking, 'She makes less than $100 doing this, and yet she is working so hard for us.' Turns out, there are some people out there who sincerely care about meeting people's needs, recognizing that all clients should get the same treatment. This is, of course, a smart way to do business, and Jaleesa has won our business for future bigger needs.
I wholeheartedly recommend her to you, regardless of your needs. You will be in great hands, and will come away feeling like you have a new, very smart friend.
She will go over and above for you too. I don't think she can help herself.
We are grateful, Tyler Durman."

Tyler D. / Laguna Beach Tenant

"We cannot rave enough about the care and service we've received with Jaleesa as our Realtor and property manager in Laguna Beach. Jaleesa is simply the best property manager and real estate agent we have found in our 20 years of renting our home in Laguna Beach.
Jaleesa is from Holland and has a strong sense of loyalty and commitment to long term relationships. This is rooted in her background, coming from a country where honesty and care is part of life. This is a contrast to many real estate agents we have met who are not always concerned about their clients as much as their commissions.
We have only positive things to say about Jaleesa: She is extremely KNOWLEDGEABLE about everything real estate-related. She is very RESPONSIVE almost to a fault (answering emails and calls), and is constantly working to make sure her clients are taken care of. Jaleesa is super FRIENDLY, caring, and truly looking out for your best interests.
Jaleesa is amazing and always looking out for you in every way! She is always one step ahead of things. If there are any issues she will will be sure to contact the right people to resolve the problem quickly.
We feel so grateful to know that Jaleesa is watching over our home and our guests. Our current renter just wrote me an e mail to tell me how nice Jaleesa has been to her during her summer stay.
We hope we can continue to work with Jaleesa as we spend every summer in Sweden. Knowing that she is there makes our life so much more peaceful. I am happy to speak with anyone who is looking to hire Jaleesa Peluso as their real estate agent in the Laguna Beach and Dana Point area!"

Ann Millang / Owner & Landlord in Laguna Beach

"Jaleesa is a classy young woman. I was attracted to her from the first time I met her at a beautiful Laguna Beach open house. She was generous, and willing to share of her time and expertise. She always got back to me right away when I called or emailed and spent time analyzing properties and doing spread sheets for me.
Jaleesa was very professional and also extremely encouraging, sincere and listened compassionately to help me work through my needs.
I would strongly recommend Jaleesa to anyone looking for property in Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente. She made my experience with her fun, educational and fulfilling."

Leslee Allen / Buyer & Investor in South OC

"Jaleesa, when we first got together, spent the whole day driving us through all the areas of Laguna Beach, explaining in detail the pros and cons as we drove through the whole community. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional and detailed in her explanation of the various properties she was showing us."

B. Owen / Buyer in Laguna Beach

"Jaleesa assisted me with leasing a furnished rental while transitioning from Colorado to Laguna Beach. She was very competent and responsive, quickly assessing my needs and providing several properties meeting my needs. She gave her full attention to the smallest details.
Jaleesa has an open, warm manner. She intuitively provided local publications and referrals for services.
Jaleesa exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend her!"

Nancy K. / Tenant in Laguna Beach

"Jaleesa was a great help in finding an investment property!
She understood my particular demands as a buyer and worked tirelessly to find viable options for consideration. She is very bright and eager to learn. Jaleesa is extremely well organized, especially when it comes to document signing and review. Perhaps an even better attribute is her ability to quickly assimilate and utilize newly gained knowledge.
I would most definitely use her again for any future investment property acquisitions."

Markus I. / Buyer & Investor in Venice Beach

"I am a local Real Estate Broker. I recently had the pleasure of working with Jaleesa on a Sale Transaction in Eastside Costa Mesa. Jaleesa was absolutely fantastic to work with!! She is so responsive, communicative, and friendly. It was so very evident how much she cared about her Client throughout the process. Jaleesa is a terrific Real Estate Professional, and I wish that there were more agents like her out there!! Jaleesa, thank you for making our Transaction such a smooth one. I hope to work with you again in the near future!"
