“Words cannot express the thanks and gratitude we feel for all that you have done to help us over the past 2+ years. When we thought a short sale was our only option, you came to the rescue with knowledge of the area and confidence in our ability to lease and ride out the low market values. Everything you told us you would do you did and that is such a rare thing these days.
We are so grateful to you for the hard work you (and your team) out into making this all happen for us and even doing it 2 days early. Having your go-to termite company, handyman and carpet cleaning people was a lifesaver for us since we couldn’t be there to do it ourselves. We will miss talking with you, but please know that you are welcome anytime here at our house in Arizona and you can use us as a referral anytime.


Thank you again for everything. You truly are amazing at what you do and we have been lucky to have you in our corner.”

“I’ve known Joey Van Leuven for 13 years. She was the seller’s agent in the first home I bought and she won me over back then by being a good-natured person with a big heart and a winning attitude.

Upon starting to search for my second home in 2011, Joey was extremely pro-active in finding homes early and often for me to look at that matched my needs. The charming house that I ended up wanting was competitively sought after and Joey was instrumental in working with the seller’s and their agent to get them to accept my offer.

What I like about Joey is that she’s problem solver and I’ve yet to encounter a problem that she wasn’t able to solve. In a competitive business Joey maintains an exemplary amount of knowledge and professionalism in addition to a comforting personal touch. This alone would make her qualified experience, the thing that truly impresses me, is that each day she strives to better in all aspects of her life. You can’t ask for anything more than that.”

In the Spring of 2009, my husband and I decided to move forward with a divorce. He wanted to buy me out of our house and offered to help me purchase a new house prior to our dissolution of marriage. Both my attorney and my husband's attorney suggested that we contact Joey Van Leuven with Re/Max for a market analysis on our property located in the gated community of Rolling Hills.  Joey provided us with a detailed market report estimating the value of our property at $3,600,00. Even though my husband was not happy with Joey's market valuation, because he wanted it to be lower, I asked Joey to help me find a new house based on her market value. My husband demanded that we have our Rolling Hills property appraised and the appraisal report had a very similar value to Joey's and we were allowed to continue.

It was important for me to find a property that was smaller in size, but gave my children the same amenities the other property gave them. It was not an easy list for Joey to work with. We wanted the same number of bedrooms with a separate bathroom for each of my three children, in addition to a guest bath off the main living area. Remaining in the same school district was a big requirement too.

After several months of intense searching we located the perfect property at 6412 Corsini Place in Rancho Palos Verdes. This house has a large lot with view of the harbor,  4800 square feet of living space, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and a beautiful gourmet kitchen, which is very spacious and my favorite space in the house. Joey was able to negotiate a good purchase price on the house, along with a quick escrow and was able to move at the start of the school year in 2009. After purchasing my property the court asked for an appraisal report and my property appraised for almost $100,000 more than what I purchased it for.

I love my house. However, when my youngest daughter graduates from high school in two years, I will be placing my house on the market. Joey will sell my house in Rancho Palos Verdes and help me down size and purchase a house in my desired area within Hermosa Beach.

Joey is extremely knowledgeable and detailed oriented, with a driven personality. I highly recommend her.
