I had a difficult seller trying to back out of the contract. Lea was instrumental in getting the closing to happen on time. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and always responsive to any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend Lea and Rubin.

My husband and I just bought our first home thanks to Lea. She was very professional, her advice was very on-point, she was always available for us no matter time and she was very knowledgeable. She understood our needs and likes from the very beginning, carried us through the process very patiently and we also learned a lot from her. We'll be eternally thankful and definitely will recommend Ms. Lea Plotkin 1000%.

My husband and I are relocating from New York to Florida and found a home on Zillow that we both loved. My husband was on a plane on Saturday and met Lea Plotkin that same day and by Monday we were in Contract. They helped the entire way through the process until we closed on May 14th. I would highly recommend Lea and Rubin. I only wish they were in NY to assist with the sales process here.

Both Lea and Rubin were extremely patient with me, accommodating and gave me excellent advice in my search. After the contract, Lea was particularly attentive to all the small details needed to get to a successful closing. I would recommend both of them very highly for anyone selling or buying real estate.

I listed my home with Lea and Rubin and had multiple offers in less than 60 days. My situation was very challenging, with several hundred thousand dollars in upgrades in my home, it was imperative to find a buyer who could appreciate the value of the upgrades. Lea and Rubin literally searched the globe for the right buyer executing a global marketing strategy that consistently brought in heavy traffic. Their support went beyond marketing my home; they truly care about their clients, assisting in solutions for mortgages, insurance and moving and storage which saved me significant dollars. Thank you Lea and Rubin for a great partnership and going above and beyond. I highly recommend Lea and Rubin, they get results! Less ... More

Thank you so much Rubin and I always like to these challenges. homes that are really great but may not appraise because the owners have put more into them and decided to move too soon. They always seem to work out for us. we do get the home owner more money in less time! this was a pleasure.

I have purchased and sold homes in the past, but my experience with Lea and Rubin is far superior to any other I've experienced. From my first telephone conversation with Lea I felt comfortable in her extensive knowledge of the area and the market and her expertise was confirmed on our first day out. She is meticulous in arranging viewings and makes sure to Only show you what she knows you'll be interested in to ensure that she is not wasting your time. Needless to say, my husband and I found the perfect home that we both love and Lea took care of all the details from beginning to end resulting in a speedy, smooth transaction. I trusted her expertise so much that days after closing on our new purchase we asked Lea to list our previous home which thanks to her resulted in a contract days after our first showing and a speedy 30 day closing. All in all, a great experience and would recommend Lea and Rubin hands down 1000%! Less ... More

We have been so blessed to have found Lea. She is not only experienced but is very knowledgeable regarding the real estate market. This was a long process, but she was there with us throughout it all. Not only did she get us our dream home, but she also sold our old home. This was our third time purchasing a home, but the first time selling and buying at the same time. She educated us about the process and was always prompt to respond to all our needs. If you are looking for someone who is professional, honest and is all about your best interest, look no further, Lea is the one. We thank you so much for all that you have done for our family. I look forward to working with you in the future. Less ... More

We have had several selling and purchasing experiences with Lea and Rubin. We would never consider using another agent because they are the best in South Florida! Not only did they sell my house in a down market, but also they found us EXACTLY what we were looking for. More recently, they sold another of my properties in less than a month!

Lea Plotkin and Rubin Wites are very knowledge of the area and market trends that allow you to set the proper expectations in completing a transaction. They were able to find me tenants at 2 different points in time for my rental properties in Parkland. Lea and Rubin are always available by cell, text and e-mail with quick responses to any questions/issues. They are true professionals with great knowledge and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is trying to buy/sell/rent a property.

Lea and Rubin came highly recommended to me by a neighbor whose house they had recently sold. I truly cannot say enough good things about them. As a long time local resident, I wanted to work with realtors who were also local residents and intimately familiar with the homes in my subdivision. From our first meeting through our closing Lea and Rubin demonstrated the highest degree of expertise and professionalism. They were also very objective and very accurate in their assessment of my home's value and estimated time to sell. It is my pleasure to recommend them to the community. Less ... More

My husband and I were so impressed with Lea and Rubin. They quickly got a grasp of what we were looking for and presented us with appropriate properties. They both have great knowledge and experience in the industry and this area. They went well above and beyond just finding us a property by helping us with insurance issues, finding doctors, informing us about parks and entertainment for our children and staying on top of things for the closing. We moved to the area from North Dakota, but had previously lived in Dade County. Lea picked up on this and gave me the information to portable our property taxes from our old property which will save us property taxes on our new property. This frankly blew my mind! Their attention to detail was phenomenal! We would highly recommend them! Less ... More

Lea Plotkin recently assisted me with the sale of my home. Initially, I was certain that it was going to be a short sale. Though the numbers were very close, Lea was able to help me avoid short selling on the property. There was a contract on the house within 3 weeks of it being on the market and the house was sold within 2 months of being on the market. Lea is upfront, with no hidden agendas, she is also very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable about the local market. I am very satisfied with the service provided and I highly recommend her. Less ... More

Lea assisted us with the successful short sale. It was a long and tough process but Lea was extremely knowledgeable about the whole process. If you are looking for a touchy feely person who is going to tell you what you want to hear, Lea is NOT your gal. However, if you want an agent who is going to be completely honest about the market and give you the truth about what it will take to sell your property, then Lea is your agent.

In a challenging housing market, my husband & I were extremely cautious and fearful of the commitment and process related to purchasing a new home. Lea & Rubin helped put our worries at ease. They were extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and patient- listening closely to all of our needs and wants. They spent a lot of time with us throughout the process to ensure we were comfortable with every step along the way. The end result was the perfect home for our growing family. We can't thank them enough for their help through what could have been a very stressful process. Thank you, Lea & Rubin!! We look forward to working with you again. Less ... More

Nor did we know about schools for our kids My husband was going to working in Miami and I would be working in Palm Beach. Lea was amazing she sent us emails with man informative links . Sh spent time on the phone with me prior to us coming down so we could narrow down our search. we found a home and a place to live in a very short period of time Lea was amazing in negotiating the deal of a lifetime. Rubin was also at hand when ever Lea was not available. A great team, they knew their real estate, knew pitfalls with our inspections, and got us an amazing home at an amazing price. Less ... More

Lea Plotkin and Rubin Wites team used their knowledge of the local area and current market trends to help my wife and I set a price for our house which brought in numerous potential buyers which led us to be under contract within one week. Lea and Rubin were always there to answer any questions no matter how small my wife or I had. Lea and Rubin made themselves available either by cell phone, text, or e-mail and usual response time was within the hour even on a weekend or after business hours. My wife and I really appreciate all that Lea and Rubin did for us during our stressful time of selling our house. My wife and I met with multiple realtors before deciding on Lea and Rubin, we chose them for their professionalism, knowledge, and communication skills, and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is trying to sell a house.

I can't say enough about Rubin and Leah. What a GREAT TEAM. They put in an enormous amount of time and effort to help us find an undiscovered gem. We were living in NJ at the time and made three exploratory trips to Florida looking for a house. They were patient with us as we learned more about communities we were unfamiliar with while introducing us to the different lifestyles that Florida living offers. When it came time to negotiate the purchase, they took the bull by the horns and guided us as to what they thought was a fair price ultimately negotiating successfully with the buyer. We loved working with them and love the house!! Less ... More

Leah and Rubin were very efficient and professional when we were looking for a winter property. They had knowledge and understanding of the market that was extremely helpful in aiding us in a decision as to where and what to buy. They steered us away from some of our intial chosen sites which in retrospect saved us much headache and grief. Their understanding of the local markets and the nuances of the different communities helped my wife and myself make a positive choice that we are thrilled with. In an era of uncertainty with real estate both Leah and Rubin were a breathe of fresh air and worked very hard on our behalf to ensure we got good value for the lifestle we desired.
