Client Testimonials"I had the pleasure of working with Leo and Michelle when I needed help renting out my condo in SF. They are both very knowledgeable about the real estate/rental market and great to work with. They found me some great tenants in the time frame I needed and I would definitely use them again! I would highly recommend working with Leo and Michelle!"- Nara C.
"Selling a house remotely can be challenging. Michelle and Leo helped make it easy from start to finish, including managing not only staging but also a number of repairs needed to get the property ready. As a result, I was able to remain in New York while the property was efficiently sold in San Francisco. I would recommend Michelle and Leo wholeheartedly."- Jeffrey P.
"I listed my house with another brokerage firm and had no success, so I moved to Climb and the very talented and responsive team of Michelle Stephens and Leo Petroni. They coordinated a restaging and major repurposing of the outdoor area which changed the appeal of the house. Throughout the sale process, they promptly and efficiently resolved the hiccups. The house sold for over the listing price. I strongly recommend this talented team."- Jim N.
"After having worked with a variety of real estate agents for past purchases, hands down, Leo Petroni is my favorite. Not only is communication prompt and informative, but he does a fantastic job at making you feel like a priority. He gave as much attention to the crummy West Oakland lot I was eyeballing as to the $4 million home he was listing concurrently. I was shopping for something in the East Bay, which is a market Leo was less familiar with, but he buckled down and did the research needed to determine a fair offer on my dream home. Not only that, but he helped me avoid a few lemons along the way and spotted all the potential contractual issues with my new property. Overall I'm very pleased with the work Leo did and he would be the first person I'd contact for any future real estate needs. I recommend him all the time."- Ana P.
"We would like to thank Leo Petroni from Climb Real Estate for all his help with the entire process of buying and renting our investment property in San Francisco. Leo has a very friendly and positive attitude. We reside in Southern California and Leo was tremendously helpful with all the logistics of getting the condo ready for a new tenant and dealing with all the little builder issues post closing of the sale. He was willing to go over and above the call of duty and made numerous trips to the condo after we closed to allow contractors to access the condo post-closing. He saved us from numerous trips to San Francisco and we are very appreciative of that. We respect Leo's professionalism, positive attitude, and friendliness. We wish him all the best and would not hesitate to use him in future transactions in the city."- Rick & Jay D.
"It is with pleasure that my husband and I would like to commend the team of Leo Petroni and Michelle Stephens of Climb Real Estate Company. We recently hired them to assist us with a rental turnover on our property on Connecticut Street in San Francisco. They were very organized, helpful, and diligent throughout the process, showing our flats whenever clients were interested and holding open houses several times to engender more interest in the property. We had previously worked with Michelle and knew her to be an excellent resource for us." - Gail R. and Blaise C.
