TOP REAL ESTATE AGENT IN CALIFORNIA SANA SALEH
Top Agent Sana Saleh of Rodeo Realty Fine Estates (SanaSellsHomes) possesses a keen knowledge of the Los Angeles real estate market, gleaned from decades working with major banking institutions in the City of Angeles.
“In my prior career,” says Sana, “I was an executive for major banks, where I ran the the retail business operations. What that also entailed was understanding the various market places and identifying where we would expand our footprint and locations. That gave me a really good understanding of not only the various real estate markets in Southern California, but it also helped me understand the various types of real estate available to the consumer and their needs”. In 2015, Sana decided to make a change. “For my second stage in life, I thought I wanted to try something different,” she says. “So being a person who was already a real estate investor personally, and as someone who always had a passion for that, I made a complete career change. It was nerve-wracking at first, giving up a career of over 25 years with stability and a position I worked very hard at obtaining reporting to the CEO and Board of Directors for a situation where you’re basically self-employed.”
Her gambit paid off, and she quickly found herself to be an overnight success in the highly competitive world of Los Angeles real estate. Selling pretty much the entire city, including from Pasadena to the Beverly Hills, West Side, San Fernando Valley and Ventura County, Sana’s familiarity with the market provides a boon to any client lucky enough to work with her. Many of Sana’s clients express surprise upon initial consultation, when they are confronted with a realtor who is clearly ready and willing to go well above industry norms to make sure they are given the very best service possible. “They see how hard I work,” she says, “and then there’s just this ‘wow’ moment.” With a referred business rate of over 70%, Sana is clearly doing something right. “I truly believe it’s my commitment to my clients,” she says. “My honesty and my integrity”. Those are components you must have to be successful. What also sets me apart is not just the fact that I’m personable and understanding of the needs and wants of my clients, but I think my financial planning background can provide additional guidance that will support their decisions.”
A Premier Agent on Zillow, Sana’s reputation and abilities are made clear by a slew of five-star reviews raving about her services. Reads one: “I have no greater reverence for a professional than I have for Sana. She helped my parents, who had not moved for almost 50 years, with grace, expertise, and the patience of a saint move to the house of their dreams. Not only is she authentically a kind person, but she knows her clients’ needs innately. She is also a fierce champion – our buyer (a savvy builder) wanted to try to get away with a few things – but Sana not only stopped him at the start, she kept the mess away from my mom who would have been anxious by it all. It wasn’t until after the sale that we found out how difficult the the buyer had been. I did not expect someone to go above and beyond and nurture and defend my parents and their best interests. If you have become cynical with customer service and the ethos of experts, Sana will remind you that there are more good people in the world rooting for you. I cannot recommend her enough. In fact, any family member or friend who wants to buy or sell, will absolutely never stop hearing the end of me telling them to call her.”
When she’s not working, Sana sits on the Supervisory Board of the West Side Chapter of the Cancer Support Community, and also volunteers through her church to assist underprivileged children. She also loves hiking with her husband and daughters.
As for the future, Sana is passionate about educating those who are perplexed by the complexities of buying a home. “I really want to create educational workshops to help guide first-time home buyers and those whom have life changes due to a loved one passing or other life changes. I do see people get taken advantage of, or don’t get the right support when they’re going through the process. I like to take my clients under my wings and educate them. My clients appreciate the time I spend walking them through every step of the process of buying or selling a home.”
