My husband and I were looking to purchase our first home, and a coworker recommended Lelani as our realtor and I'm so glad she did. We had one of the most difficult home buying processes when it came to getting approved for a VA home loan, and Lelani really helped us jump through so many hoops to get the loan and to purchase the house I absolutely loved! In the end we were so grateful. She was so responsive and patient when hiccups came up. We really appreciate Lelani and I would recommend her to everyone I know, especially if they're first time home buyers like we were.
If you are looking for a realtor that listens to you, cares for you, and fights for you, then look no further than Lelani Clayton! I am so thankful that she was representing me through this process! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a competent, trustworthy and diligent realtor to contact Lelani! She is the best!
Lelani was very professional and went out of her way to go above and beyond in the extra little details to make sure our home sold for top dollar (which it did).
Previous review from Christopher A.
What an amazing experience. Lelani truly goes above and beyond when it comes to taking care of her clients. Not only did she show us an extremely high number of homes in a short time (40 in 3 weeks), she also provided exceptional local knowledge. After our house hunting experience I'm proud to call her friend.
When I think about someone going out of their way to understand and assist their clients, I think of Lelani. The home buying process may be a rollercoaster but it was a smooth ride with Lelani on our team!
My husband and I are beyond pleased with Lelani. As first-time home buyers moving to a new state and being very new to the military life, we could not have done this without her assistance. She was able to provide excellent advice while we were trying to make offers on homes, always responded in a timely manner, and just went above and beyond for my husband and I. We are truly blessed and thankful that we had her in our corner.
I am a first-time home owner who needed to find a home in a short time window and via long distance due to a military move. I had very specific needs due to my family size and make up. Lelani came to the rescue! She did not waste my time with a generic home search; rather, she carefully detailed my property listings for review, always recommending the top 3-5 homes. She is extremely detailed oriented, reading all my feedback and notes and finding quick answer whenever I had questions, which was often as this was all a new process for me. She got viewing appointments right away, even at times when homes had barely come on the market. She accommodated 'virtual' home viewings when feasible, which was extremely helpful. When it was time to fly in and view properties in person, she booked every single property I wanted to see and made a lot of time for me. Once we selected a home she expertly guided me through the paperwork and made great recommendation on third party services needed to close on the home. She made a complex and stressful process easy, and I am eternally grateful. Her professionalism is above and beyond.
Lelani is the best realtor anyone could ever have. She walked us through the process and was very informative about what we needed to do which was a lot. After many improvements she had the house staged which was a great idea and made it sell quickly. I would highly recommend her.
We couldnt have asked for a more responsive and deligent agent. The process of selling a house is stressful and having to do it remotely even more so. Lelani made it infinitely easier for us and significantly reduced that stress. She did an outstanding job and we can't be more grateful.
Lelani was great in helping me sell my Newport News condo. I held the property for over a decade as a rental property and her suggestions on how to best repair and prepare the property for sale were great. Selling a home remotely from several states away during a period of economic turmoil had me very apprehensive, but Lelani's communication throughout the entire process was incredible. She was great in helping coordinating repairs and inspections. I never had unanswered questions or felt like I was unsure of where we were in the entire sales process. That, for me was incredibly valuable, and not something I've found in previous real estate transactions. The listing and marketing plan brought many viewers and led to a great offer within a week of listing. The property sold and closed promptly. Lelani, Thank you so much for the great experience. I would highly recommend Lelani to anyone seeking a real estate agent!
This is simply a brief note acknowledging the ongoing remarkable assistance given in my search for the perfect new residence. Mrs. Clayton worked endlessly to assure me that all options were explored and that I was comfortable with my decisions. In the end, I had no regrets that Mrs. Clayton's high energy profile had covered all bases in my rather challenging search.
Lelani = Integrity, Good listener, trust- worthy, very thorough, and goes an extra 100 miles for you! My brother - in- law wanted to downsize and move closer to family. Lelani listened to all our needs as a family. She's personable and so quick to get things done! We are truly so happy our family is closer! Thanks Lelani for your professionalism with Love! We are forever Grateful!
Working with Lalani was such a pleasure. I had to sell my mother's home using a power of attorney and I lived in a different state. Lelani walked me through the process and stayed in touch with me through each step. She also helped me to find contractors to do the repairs to my parents home. The house was put up for sale quickly and I was able to receive a fair price for my parents home. I recommend anyone to use Lelani for the sale or the purchase of their home. She knew I needed to sell the home quickly to help fund my mother at a Memory Care Facility. She helped me solve all issues and get this house so quickly at a fair price. She made me feel as if she truly cared about my situation. I would use her again and recommend her to my friends who live in Virginia. Thanks again Lelani for all your help.
Lelani made my first-time home buying experience exceptional! Every step of the way, she remained engaged, knowledgeable, professional, available and trusting. I am fortunate to have had her as my agent. She took time to understand holistically what I wanted in a home, showed grace when I changed my mind, and genuinely (and patiently) educated me through each and every process. I absolutely recommend Lelani for your next home purchase. God Bless!
I found Lelani to be very responsive and patient in answering all of our questions. She anticipated our needs so information was quickly provided. She offered advice when needed and negotiated a great sale that went quite smoothly. Lelani has a warm, friendly personality, truly delightful and I would highly recommend her for professionalism!
Lelani is the consemet professional. She is empathetic and pays attention to detail. Lelani works to understand your needs and identify the homes that best meet your criteria and requests. Lelani is also a great advisor and will guide you in discerning the housing market options. I highly recommend Lelani and Coldwell Banker Realtors when looking for yourhome.
Outstanding assistance! When our landlord unexpectingly decided to sell, we found ourselves in in urgent situation to find a new home. Uncertain whether to buy or rent, we needed an agent that was knowledgeable of the market and able to walk us through all the options. A coworker recommended Lelani and she was more than we could have ever expected. She identified with our situation and aggressively pursued opportunities that aligned with our needs. Amazing responsiveness and flexibility! We're a busy family and Lelani worked tirelessly around our schedule (often during the evening and weekends) showing properties and engaging with owners and property managers to ensure we had all the information we were seeking. In the end, we found exactly what we were looking for and I credit Lelani for ensuring we knew we were making the right decision. Sprint through the finish! She continued to notify us of new listings until we signed the lease. We're very grateful for everything she did for us. It was the best house hunting experience we've had. If you're looking for great representation, Lelani is your solution! She has our highest recommendation! - Clair and Les Begin (military family)
My husband and I had the pleasure to work with Lelani on the purchase of our 1st home. From the beginning to the end, she made the process simple. She met with us initially to explain what to expect, answered our questions, and made us feel at ease towards such an overwhelming process. When we had questions, she answered them immediately and was very knowledgeable. She also went above and beyond to reach out to third parties that we couldn't contact since both my husband and I work. We appreciate Lelani and all the hard work she put in so that we could move into our 1st home. Thank you again Lelani!!!
I'm speechless. And I am honored to have the team of professionals organized by Lelani who guided me in the processes of the purchase of my new home. The entire experience was awesome; the home is awesome; and so is my agent Lelani. I can't wait to do this again.
Lelanie was wonderful to work with. She walked us through every aspect of our purchase of our home on Williamsburg. She was professional but very personable. She returned calls promptly and was so patient with us concerning the paperwork involved. She was there to answer our concerns but I never felt pressured to make decisions. She made our purchase of our home a great experience
Lelani was very professional in her dealings with me. She was attentive, responsive, and very sensitive to everyone's needs. In a day and age in which real estate agents do the bare minimum if anything, Lelani is the complete opposite. She is involved in the real estate process in all steps. She also takes the time to go over all the details and educate in the process. Lelani's standard is a standard to fool for real estate agents to be successful in the real estate business. I will definitely use her services again.
We were very pleased with Lelani's service and availability to help every step of the way as we purchased our new home!
Lelani is the best in the business, she is very intelligent and informative. She made my first time buying experience very easy and the process went super fast. She’ll find you exactly what your looking for and meet your schedule needs. Over all a great experience with Lelani and would recommend to everyone!
Lelani was wonderful and very helpful with explaining things and taking needs into consideration.
