Buyer Profile: Leon and Sarah
Acme offers a wide range of knowledge of the neighborhoods in LA, and their realtors share a love of quality, design, and put their buyers before everything else.
NEIGHBORHOOD OF CHOICE?
We started our house search looking in the Mid-City/Mid-Wilshire area because the neighborhoods are central, walkable, and were areas we were most familiar with in Los Angeles. We also thought we would be able to get a little bit more bang for our buck. As we started expanding our search range a bit, we found there were some great houses still in our budget in Laurel Canyon, Beverly Glen, and West LA, plus they are architecturally interesting. We ultimately fell in love with our place off of Beverly Glen because the neighborhood is quiet, and we’re still a quick drive away from great stores and restaurants. We have an excellent balance of having a retreat like feel at our house, while still being close to the city action.
WHAT SOLD YOU ON WORKING WITH ANDREW?
Besides his darling, boyish good looks? We were in stride with Andrew from minute one. He took time to understand our must have items in a house, and offered up a really great overview of the house buying process. This was super helpful as new home buyers. Andrew was proactive in finding us houses without being overly pushy.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE ANDREW TO RECOMMEND HIM TO A FUTURE CLIENT?
Andrew moved at our pace, and was very intuitive with our needs. He made himself available for questions and showings at all times. He became our therapist through more stressful moments, and was able to explain all contract questions we had. It’s clear he has a passion for what he does, and wants to work for and with you to find you a place you’re proud to call home. Oh, and he’s a master at selecting the right emoji at all times.
FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN YOUR NEW ‘HOOD?
We don’t have any trendy hot spots in the new hood, but we do have one restaurant for every ethnicity, which thank goodness, they do pretty well. It’s been great for when we’re too lazy to drive down the hill!
FAVORITE ROOM OR DETAIL IN YOUR HOME?
We have high ceilings in our main living space with tall windows which bring in an incredible amount of light, and views of the canyon and trees surrounding us. It’s breathtaking.
MOTIVATION FOR BUYING?
Like many, we were renters for many many years, moving often. We were ready to have a place to call our own, and to have the freedom to put our own stamp on it.
