If you would like a complimentary price analysis of your present property, Lea would be pleased to discuss with you what your home is worth in today's market. This service is a normal part of our business: you come to understand the value of your property, and we have an opportunity to present our credentials.

Grateful to Lea for helping us purchase our dream home in a very short time frame. With her experience she helped us overcome many hurdles and made the sale process smooth, predictable and reliable.  Accommodating and professional way beyond our expectations is how I would like to describe her.

I have worked with Lea Cohen for 5 years in the Brookline area. She helped me purchase a condo and a house as well as sell a condo. Lea is an exceptional agent with knowledge to locate good properties and skill to negotiate with the other brokers. I look forward to working with her again when we sell another condo this Spring.

"When my mom passed away and it was time to sell her home in Brookline, I contacted Lea Cohen. Lea IS Brookline. She’s lived there all her life, and knows all the ins and outs of every inch of the town. This was a bit of an emotional process for my brother and me, as this was our childhood home. Lea made the process smooth and easy. She was able to tell us what comparable houses in the area had sold for, and gave us an idea of what to expect. She did not pressure us, she prepared us, and finally sold the house for more than we had anticipated, providing valuable advice from beginning to end. Lea is honest and straightforward, professional, and knows her stuff. I would absolutely work with her again should the opportunity arise."

Lea represented my husband and me a few years ago in the purchase of a 3 bedroom condominium in Brookline. We met Lea at an open house she was showing and instantly connected with her professional demeanor and friendly, relaxed style, as well as her command of the market. The "shopping" process wasn't always easy and it took some time to find the right property, but through it all, Lea was knowledgeable, supportive, and reassuring. Lea consistently gave us excellent and practical advice, so when the condo we happily live in came along, we were able to act on it quickly. We couldn't recommend Lea more highly!

"Lea is first class. If you follow her advice to the letter you will be very happy. She sold my condo in Brighton in 2014-15 and the price per square foot set a record in the BC area which stood unchallenged until mid 2018."

Thank you so much for all your help with prepping and selling our condominium. The entire process was seamless and you are a pro and a pleasure to work with. We’ll miss Brookline and especially all the wonderful neighbors, but definitely looking forward to settling into the new house.
Matt and Jen F.,
This offer is simply just plain stunning and well beyond my imagination.

Thanks again so much, this was awesome.  Funny thing is that I had talked to five other Realtors and you were the only one who came prepared so my gut instinct was spot on right then and there.

We just wanted to thank you for all of the assistance, encouragement, and support you provided us in purchasing our first home. You not only quickly understood precisely what type of home we were looking for, but with good humor, patience, and responsiveness led us through the process of finding the perfect home, negotiating a great price, and closing the deal quickly and simply. Your business background and attention to detail ensured that we ended up with a home that not only looked good in pictures, but was also a sound investment for years to come. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we cannot imagine having gone through this process with any other realtor. Thank you again, and we will miss our frequent calls and e-mails with you!
