I met Leigh during the course of selling my home which was already listed with a different agent. After only a few minutes of discussing my home and the market, in general, I knew I had the wrong realtor in my corner. If only I had met Leigh a few weeks earlier! Naturally, when it came to buying my next home months later, I didn't hesitate to call Leigh. And even though my expectations were high, she far exceeded them. She helped me find the perfect home for me and my family. I can't say "I couldn't have done it without her," because there are other agents and other homes. But I definitely couldn't have done it with the ease, comfort and confidence that Leigh provided. She carried the burdens that were more than I had time to deal with (inspections, research, etc.). And she guided me through the complex process of buying my home as though I were part of her family. She was extremely knowledgeable. I'm a divorce attorney who deals with home sales on a regular basis as part of my job. But Leigh taught me something new almost every day. I was not an easy client-I asked many tough questions and had evolving goals. Leigh was masterful at pivoting to pursue my changing goals, not to mention incredibly patient, and always contributed a sense of humor and uncommon grace. She also had very good resources when I needed other professionals, such as lending consultant, or a good inspector. I would definitely call Leigh again if I were buying or selling anywhere in the Bay Area. And I highly recommend her.

When we decided to sell our home of thirty years, we knew that we'd need a lot of help. We chose Leigh Klock after reading her online resume. Leigh took us through the process patiently, responding daily to our many calls, texts and e-mails. She knew contractors able to handle the tasks, large and small, that our house required. She called them for us and then made sure the work was completed on schedule. Along the way, she listened, assessed our concerns honestly, and made sure we stayed on a practical and efficient path. When the house was ready she explained how to price it, stage it professionally, and show it to the public. We had serious inquiries right away, and her analysis of each was spot on. We trusted her advice and are glad we did.
Leigh was a nurse and a teacher of nurses. Her sensitivity and understanding built the kind of trust we really did not expect. She knew the emotions that may arise when good offers arrive, and they did arrive because she kept us on task from start to finish. While she was selling the old house, she was searching for our new home. We wanted to be closer to our son's family, and Leigh knew how to do it. She understood us and our needs, probably better than we did.
Read her resume online. It is accurate and true. We highly recommend Leigh Klock.
In a world where many real estate agents only seem to be out to line their own pockets, Leigh is a welcome exception. She is a person of honor and character and someone a home buyer or seller can trust. I have worked with Leigh on 4 separate real estate transactions (2 buys, 2 sells) and have had a positive experience with all of them. Leigh works hard for her clients and earns their respect through her experience and efforts.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Leigh Klock on three separate real estate transactions. I would like to express my respect and appreciation for Leigh, she is nothing but professional and has extensive knowledge of the market. In all three transactions Leigh communicated openly and guided us through the process seamlessly. Hands down Leigh is the best in the business and if I need to move again, she will be my first choice for a real estate agent. I have felt so comfortable with her professionalism that I have referred her to family members and friends.

Leigh Klock is an excellent realtor. We just worked with Leigh on the purchase of our new residence in Walnut Creek and also the sale of our home in Concord. Leigh was well dressed, friendly, and very professional. She was very knowledgeable with the entire process on both homes. Leigh staged and marketed our Family home wonderfully. We got 8 offers within a few days after the 1st open house!-7 were over the asking price! We sold the home in a week after the listing date-and closed escrow 30 days after the initial signed contract. Also she helped us negotiate a very good deal on our new purchase home. So, all in all, a great experience and both transactions went seamlessly. We would highly recommend Leigh to anyone needing a realtor and would go to her again when we have another real estate transaction in the future.
Thank you Leigh Klock for finding our new home and selling my old home! Your guidance and friendship are over the top.

Leigh, Working with you was an enormous professional pleasure. Your enthusiasm, competence and personality make the entire experience so joyful. Thanks for keeping me up to date on all the important steps. Sally and Nancy could not have had more “first-class” service. It reflects on our company, but I know you are the source of such satisfaction.

Thanks for all our efforts in helping my family and I sell our family property. You did an amazing job, often over and above your job description as listing agent. You were there for us at every turn. We felt like we had a partner to rely on… when things needed to get done, they got done because of your willingness to see it through. We recognize this is a rare quality and totally appreciate it. Mostly, your advice and your counsel were spot on in guiding us through the Clayton Real Estate Market. It is clear to me you know your stuff. We wish you continued success and envy your future clients who will benefit from your forthright professionalism.
As my family and I prepare to celebrate our first Christmas in our new home, we couldn’t feel more fortunate that we met Leigh Klock as we began our home-buying journey. I first met Leigh when my husband and I were just starting to look for homes in the East Bay. We were not serious about buying yet, but wanted to get to know some of the neighborhoods in the area to further narrow down our search. She was extremely easy to talk to, gracious, down to earth, and it was very obvious she had a strong passion for her profession. More than solely helping people buy and sell homes, Leigh truly cared about finding the right home for her clients and making them happy.
After a few short conversations with her at various open houses (I kept appearing at her open houses!!), I knew that she was the person I wanted to help me and my husband find the perfect home for our family. We searched in various areas and Leigh was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, school districts, and community. She is a well-admired, involved resident of her own community and goes the extra distance to help her clients find the right fit for them. In addition to being very accommodating to our schedules for showings, many of which were last minute or same day, Leigh was patient with our process and encouraged us to keep our options open. She was so wonderful with my little ones and often kept them entertained while I toured the homes! There were many times she would agree to meet me that same night at the home so my husband could also see it when he arrived home from work. Leigh is truly one of a kid and I knew were in good hands. She listened to our feedback, was responsive to every questions/concern, and it was clear she had our best interests in mind. It wasn’t long before we found “the” house
The entire process, from start to finish, was seamless. I attribute that to Leigh’s expertise, excellent connections in the industry, and passion for her clients. We could not have made a better decision than to ask Leigh to represent us and feel grateful for her hard work and intuition to help us find exactly what we were looking for. She treated us like family and, even now, she continues to be an excellent friend and neighbor within our community.
Leigh Klock is not your average Real Estate person. She offers a wide array of services that will help augment the value of a property. Leigh has that ability to immediately size up a property and make recommendations on how to market the property to its maximum value. Leigh offered me a home revitalization program sponsored by Coldwell Bank. This program allowed Leigh to make the necessary renovations thereby increasing the desirability of the property with no up-front costs. Leigh also functioned as the general contractor, establishing a budget for the work, hiring the various contractors, and overseeing their work. Leigh managed this project with the following results. Work was completed within the set timeline and under budget, resulting in the house selling in two days on the market and 12% above the asking price. Should you be in the market for high powered professional real estate person, I suggest you give Leigh Klock a call and let her work her magic for you!
Working with Leigh was a fantastic experience. She is organized, professional, nice, and completely capable. She surpassed all of our needs and expectations. I completely recommend Leigh if you want an Amazing Real Estate experience!
Leigh was with us every step of the way! I have known Leigh for 15+ years on a personal level through our daughters growing up together. When it came time to buy a house, I immediately thought of Leigh, and happy that I did. Leigh was so helpful. From the beginning she found out what we were looking for in a home, and provided open house information in a difficult market at the time. We found our dream house, and with Leigh’s guidance we moved quickly as advised and our bid was accepted. Leigh continued to advocate for us throughout the process, up through our move-in-date. Leigh made this potentially stressful event in our life smooth and successful. We are greatly appreciative of Leigh’s knowledge of the housing market and her integrity throughout the process. Thank you, Leigh.
My fiancé and I could not have asked for a better realtor than Leigh. Being first-time home buyers, we were as anxious as we were clueless about the home buying process. Through the entire process, Leigh took every opportunity to answer our questions and ease our concerns. Despite our limited budget, leigh identified dozens of potential homes for us, often setting up individual tours on extremely short notice. She worked tirelessly to help us achieve our goal of finding and securing the home of our dreams. To put it simple, Leigh does whatever it takes to achieve success for her clients; she treats the like family.
