Helped me find a home to rent
Lee is acting as the property manager of the condo unit my family is renting. The property manager / renter relationships can often be contentious. However, with Lee, it has been a very fair and agreeable relationship from the beginning. Lee was very forthright in establishing the expectations of the unit's owner. He has also been very prompt in fixing urgent issues such as leaking water. I look forward to this quality of interaction through the duration of our lease.

Have worked with many agents and Lee outshines them all with his knowledge, expertise and service. No reservations. A true Gem! He helped wade through the potential conflicts dealing with the sellers agent and kept everything on steady keel focusing on the end deal and not letting personalities get in the way with unnecessary emotion.

He handled everything! We had an offer within the first week! So so grateful and extremely happy with the outcome. Highly recommended!!

Lee was such a help in listing and selling our parents' condominium. As an out of state seller, I really relied on his market knowledge for both staging and listing. He suggested a very sound pricing strategy which led to a quick offer. He provided a key assessment of the strenght of the offer (mimizing the risk of us having to go back on the market) and worked with us through every stage of escrow right through to closing. I would highly recommend Lee, both for his professionalism and his can do attitude. Less ... More

Lee is the best realtor I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He worked very diligently for my husband and I. He treated us with respect. Lee got issues resolved in a timely manner. Lee responded to all our calls immediately 7 days a week. Lee is very personable and really get to know his clients. Lee will fight for you to make sure to get you what you want from the seller. I had a bad experience with the loan officer and Lee was on top of it immediately. Lee contacted the loan officer supervisor and made things happen. Lee kept us abreast of every single move he made. He called us regularly to see if we had any concerns. Lee even purchased us a beautiful deadbolt lock for our home. I consider Lee a part of the family now.

Lee Harrington represented me as the buyer of a beautiful single family home. He was able to convince the seller to select me among 11 other potential buyers who had submitted competitive offers. This speaks to his communication skills and expertise in negotiations. Once I opened escrow-- with Lee's assistance were we able to close in 21 days. Lee arranged home inspection, appraiser, and termite inspection appointments within 48 hours all for the same day. This allowed me to efficiently manage my time and work responsibilities. Lee's approach is to anticipate the next steps which helps the buyer to move forward with getting loan financing in place and manage the numerous documents and disclosures that needed to be processed. Lee is very accessible and can be reached directly. I remember he had returned my initial call to him within 15 minutes. I strongly recommend Lee Harrington Less ... More

Lee Harrington is a genuine real estate professional. We met with him after numerous phone interviews with a variety of agents. We went with Lee for a basic reason, honesty. He spoke to us realistically and listened to what we needed done. We had tenants break a lease early and we needed to sell a property immediately. Lee put it one the market that week and we had 3 offers in 4 days. The house was in escrow 5 days after that and Lee assured that the sale went through despite the difficulty of dealing with our very problematic tenants. Lee dealt with them and managed the deal around them. the house sold for our asking price and we couldn't be happier with the experience. If you want the best, get Lee Harrington! Less ... More

Lee is a phenomenal agent, and one that I highly recommend. We were so pleased with his attitude and dedication that I recommended him to everyone that is looking to buy homes in the Los Angeles Area. Lee truly has the best interest of his clients in mind. He is patient and never pushes his clients to make choices just to get a deal done. He adjusts his schedule to make sure he meets his client?s needs. When we (my husband and I) described our situation, he gave us several options to go through, he listened to our needs and found us a perfect home, he understood that we wanted to sell our two story home and buy a lower level home. In fact, we looked at many homes in the last 6 months before we made a decision; he never pressured us to speed things up, he made sure it was the right one for us. When we were ready to make a move, Lee was ready and willing to do everything possible to make things happen quickly, despite the fact it is a buys market now, he did everything possible to make sure that the deal worked out for us, from offering the right amount, to the paperwork, negotiating, even with an accelerated close, you name it and Lee is there for you. If you're looking for an agent that will work hard for you and truly do everything possible to make your deal work, then Lee is the person you want to talk to. Lee is true gem***********He deserves a million stars. We couldn?t have done this without Lee.. NR Less ... More

Being a first time homebuyer can be a very stressful and discouraging process without having the right realtor to guide you through it. In every aspect of the process, from finding properties of potential interest to finding a lender with the best interest rate possible, Lee Harrington treated me as more than just a client. He saw my desire to find my perfect home and he made that his desire as well. He made sure I was not being mishandled by any other party involved in the buying process and when I began to be impatient, he reassured me that he would do his best to get me inside of my home as soon as possible--a promise he kept good on. I could not imagine having to buy a home without Lee?s expertise as my realtor. Less ... More

Lee Harrington found me a wonderful house in a great location with all the amenities I desired and kept negotiations going with the seller in order to get our agreement within my means of income. Very efficient. Processed things in a very timely manner and always either answered my calls or called back the same day I left a message.

He took the time to show me a property I was interested in. He answered my questions and also was willing to show me more properties. I haven't bought any yet because I haven't found the right one in my price range and also because I wasn't aware that one has to bid against other buyers (like an auction). I am still in the market and will most likely contact Lee Harrington again.

This was my first home purchase, and I am so happy that I had Lee on my side to guide me through the complicated process. He was always knowledgable, professional and prompt. I first called him back in September, and only a couple weeks after that, he helped me make multiple offers on a few great condos in the West LA area. He guided me towards places that truly fit my needs, and he made me consider issues that I would have never even thought about. I ended up purchasing a condo that was under construction, and construction took a lot longer than expected. Lee kept me calm, answered all my questions, and guided me through frustrating interactions with the seller. Even after the contract was signed, Lee was constantly advocating for me when dealing with the seller, mortgage broker and escrow company. He even visited the condo several times to check on the construction progress, and he did this without me asking him to. I appreciated this very much because was I lived too far away to visit all the time. I felt like he truly wanted me to be happy with my purchase, and he did everything in his power to make sure that I got what I wanted. Lee has truly been a blessing, and I could not have achieved my dream of becoming a home owner without his help. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an agent, and I will definitely be calling him for all my real estate needs in the future. Thank you for everything, Lee! Less ... More

There are no words that would describe the tremendous level of professionalism performed by Lee Harrington with the listing and quick sale of my house. Lee was always prompt in returning calls and answering questions, in the brief time he represented me and was very helpful. My experience was seamless. My house was listed and within a couple of days of being shown I had an offer by the seventh day that was accepted with escrow closing in three weeks. I had a phenomenal experience and highly recommend using Lee. I wish I had more property to sell. Lee would be the first person I would call. Sincerely, Cheryl Carter Runnels Less ... More

Lee was amazing and patient. As first time buyers we had a lot of questions. We had a very specific budget and Lee worked with us and stayed in our budget. Lee is very professional, follows through and would meet us at a moments notice. We didn't expect to actually get the first house we REALLY wanted- but we did! Lee was insightful in many aspects of his business including the loan and escrow portion- which he helped us out with. I would highly recommend him!

Lee assisted me in selling my deceased mother's house. As I live in a different city, Lee was very helpful and sensitive to my concerns, as my brother still lived in the home and I wasn't going to be able to be as "hands on" in dealing with a transaction such as this. He always kept me informed as to what was going on, as well as taking care of the variety of issuses needed to sell a home in this day and age that was built in the 1920's. I really appreciated his knowledge of the industry, as he answered the multitude of questions that my brother or I would bring up, in a manner that individuals with different life knowledge/experiences that my brother and I possess could understand. For that, I truly appreciated his understanding, patience, and professionalism. You will be satisfied by having Lee represent you! Less ... More

We were immediately impressed with Lee's knowledge, and expertise of the neighborhood that we were searching in. We were even more impressed with his excellent customer service. Lee listened intently to what we were looking for in a new home, and personally contacted us with MLS listings which only fit into that desired wish list. This is quite different from our past experiences with other real estate agents (all of whom seemed more interested in a quick sell). On the contrary, Lee did not pressure us to buy, and instead encouraged us NOT to settle. As a result, we found a home, which checked every box on our wish list!!! We didn't have to settle after all! :) We L-O-V-E our new dream home! And now we are ready to start a family!! Thanks Lee, for going that ?extra mile? for us. God bless :) Less ... More

Lee helped facilitate the purchase of my first home. What impressed me the most about Lee was his patience and easy going personality. Some might have described me as the client from hell because of my demanding tendencies and sometimes unrealistic expectations. But Lee never broke a sweat, and remained professional throughout the entire process. He always was on time to scheduled viewings and easliy accessible via cell, text, or email. His expertise in the field was strongly evident as he able to clearly explain all the steps of the purchase transaction, even after I probably asked him the same questions over and over again. I will definitely use Lee for all of my furture realestate transactions. Less ... More

Lee was very professional from the moment I met him. He payed attention to homes I expressed an interest in and started to narrow my search. I really appreciated his honesty and knowledge of the area. He never went into a home and expressed his views of the home. He listened to my opinions first then gave advise if appropriate. Lee answered my phone calls or call me back in a timely manner. That was very important to me. I hope I was not his only client but he made me feel as though i was. Thank you Lee.

Lee Harrington is an excellent professional real estate agent I have ever seen. I have dealt with different agents before; I haven?t seen anyone with close quality that lee has. Most of the agents I dealt with will set you on their own criteria and then they tell you they know everything for you, if you deviate your interest then they are not happy. With Lee it is totally different, he listens to you as you are the one who is going to leave and take all responsibilities for the home you purchasing. Lee will help you to make a decision by bring his professional expertise when you need it. He is well rounded very knowledgeable about the business. He is calm, not slaw, not rushing you in any of the decisions you have to make. I don?t know what to say more he is everything. When I say these words I don?t say it easy, because I am very picky person and with a lot of ideas and alternative in my mind when I look for the home I am going to live in, and I don?t want people to stop me form thinking and setting my alternative to benefit me. Lee was the only one that understood me well and worked with me to get this beautiful home that I ever dream for. He did it in a very short period of time. Go with Lee you will never regret you did.

While the cash back incentive is a strong one, I only met with Lee once. It seemed to me that this incentive might be drawing a lot of interested parties. A good strategy for Lee since he could potentially make up the difference in volume, but I ended up working with a different agent who was not so weighed down with other clients and could be very responsive to look at many properties and strike quickly when I found those of interest.
Response fromLee Harrington
She contacted me looking for an investment property. We did meet once but the properties were not a good fit. I explained to her about the rent control issues and areas of preference that many investors that I have worked with prefer and why. She did send me a long list of properties but many in my professional opinion were not the right investments. Finding a good property takes time but the right property is well worth the wait. I did find a nice property and emailed her and she emailed back that she had made an offer on another property with another agent. I wished her the best of luck. Less ... More

I am a senior and I lived in my home for more than 40 years when I decided to sell.  I listed my home with Lee Harrington of Diamond View Realty and had three offers within the first five days. We opened escrow shortly thereafter and closed within 35 days. Lee Harrington was professional and accessible every step of the way. He was also patient in explaining each phase of the process as we went along, and he even helped me with referrals to move out when the time came. He went above and beyond in so many ways.

From our first meeting with Lee Harrington we were very impressed with his professionalism and comprehensive knowledge of the real estate business. He is consistently punctual and personable. These qualities were very important to us as the broker/agent we wanted to work with would need to represent us and our interests well, especially in our absence. Rather, than simply taking stock of our real estate needs and wants, Lee invested much time and energy in getting to know us as people. This helped immensely as we felt very well represented on a number of different levels as we felt that he protected our interests in all phases of our recent home purchase. Further, Lee freely shared his wealth of knowledge garnered over many years in the business. He did this before, during and after the conclusion of our business together. In fact, because of the professional services and high degree of integrity demonstrated by Lee during our home purchase, we have already referred a close family member to him and we would not hesitate to do so again at any time in the future. We would highly recommend Lee Harrington and Diamond View Realty to anyone who is serious about either buying or selling real property in a professional and timely manner. Thanks, Lee!!! Less ...

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I made the mistake of falling for the other reviews. This agent could not confirm how his cashback work or the amount on my property. Could not put an error free offer together by the deadline required so that I lost the property I was interested. I should have known that nobody gets 5 stars all round in just one year.
Response fromLee Harrington
This client contacted me online from a local California phone number. She said she wanted to make a cash offer on this property and asked me to prepare the offer. Once it was time to prepare the offer I was told that she lived in the United Kingdom and decided not to pay cash wanted it written through a company in the United Kingdom and did not want her name to appear anywhere on the offer. I was totally uncomfortable with doing so and decided not to represent her.

My husband and I found Lee after several frustraing months working with other agents. After reading Lee's reviews, we thought he'd be the person to get us in our first home. What struck us most about Lee initially was his extreme honesty. After we described our desires and non-negotiables, Lee was able to come up with a list of homes that he thought fit our description and advised us against some of the neighborhoods we had previously (and naively) considered. In the end, Lee found us a wonderful house in a family-friendly, safe neighborhood. From the time we first entered the house, Lee was on the phone with the listing agent and was able to find out important information before advising us on our offer. Our first offer was accepted, thanks to his advice, and we were closed and moving in the new place within 30 days. Lee was always responsive, he was very organized, and he advocated for our best interests throughout the process. We always felt like he gave us honest, immediate feedback and advice throughout the process. After having worked with other agents unsuccessfully, we were shocked with the speed, efficiency and apparent effortlessness with which Lee handled all aspects of the transaction. He is extremely professional, while also taking into consideration that this is a huge and very personal deal for the prospective buyer - he is assertive on your behalf while also making you feel understood and cared for. We couldn't be more happy to say that we are homeowners and to begin our family in the new house -- all of which we could not do without Lee Harrington. We enthusiastically recommend him! Less ...

Lee Harrington is knowledgeable, thorough and professional. He is a broker who does things right the first time. Because he cares about his clients, he literally guides them through the process of home ownership, taking time to explain and put his clients at ease. Where other agents are satisfied with doing just the basics, Lee always gives his best, which is why his customer service is so excellent. I give him my highest recommendation because he earned it.
