"In the fall of 2022, Francesca handled the sale of our family home of 54 years, and I can't recommend her highly enough. Francesca is the consummate professional. She has a wealth of experience in the industry, and it shows in her mastery of the process, in her knowledge of the area and the real estate market, and in the many connections that she's established over the years. More than that, it was a real joy to work with Francesca. As someone who places a high premium on responsiveness, availability, conscientiousness and reliability, I was so impressed and pleased. Francesca is a person of integrity, kindness and good humor, and we could not have chosen better." Deborah Goldstine
Francesca did an excellent job selling my mom's home. My wife and I live in the SF bay area and did not know any realtors in the West Hills area. A couple of weeks before we were planning to list, we went to several open houses near my mom's house to meet some local realtors. We narrowed it down to three and then had formal interviews with them. Francesca came to the interview super prepared with a detailed proposal on how she would market my mom's house and we called her an hour later letting her know she got the listing. From day one, Francesca was the consummate professional. Because we live 350 miles away, we relied on Francesca for everything and she definitely performed. From the detailed listing, to the in depth analysis to select the correct listing price, we were 100% satisfied with the entire listing process.. She held an open house the first weekend after the house was listed and just as she expected, we received multiple offers above the asking price. She went over each offer in detail giving us the pros and cons of each. With her superb negotiating skills, we were able to go into contract with an offer $55k over the asking price which we were thrilled with. While in escrow, Francesca texted or emailed every couple days with information on how the transaction was proceeding. One of the things we liked most about Francesca is that we never had to reach out to her to inquire how things were going. Because we were out of town, Francesca always offered to meet people at the house as necessary which was a big assistance. In closing, if you are looking for a realtor to either sell your house or help you purchase one, you will be glad you used Francesca when the transaction is complete "
I AM AN OLDER WOMAN WHO HAS PURCHASED QUITE A BIT OF PROPERTY IN MY LIFE. I CAN SAY WITHOUT QUALIFICATION THAT FRANCESCA IS THE BEST REALTOR I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH.
AT THE TIME I LUCKILY FOUND HER I WAS SELLING ONE PROPERTY AND TRYING TO PURCHASE ANOTHER. THESE PROPERTIES WERE IN TWO DIFFERENT CITIES. I ALREADY HAD A REALTOR IN CAMARILLO THAT I WAS SELLING AND LOOKING TO PURCHASE ANOTHER IN SAN FERNANDO VALLEY. FRANCESCA FOUND A GREAT PROPERTY FOR ME IN LAKE BALBOA AND I PURCHASED IT. PRIOR TO MOVING IN THE TOWNHOUSE IN LAKE BALBOA HAD A FLOOD THAT TOOK A GREAT DEAL OF TIME TO FIX. THE LOGISTICS OF BUYING AND SELLING WITH A TAX EXCHANGE WAS VERY DIFFICULT ON TOP OF HAVING A LONG DELAY ON THE ONE I WAS PURCHASING. THE REALTOR ON THE PROPERTY I WAS SELLING WAS NO WHERE NEAR AS ACCOMPLISHED AS FRANCESCA. SO FRANCESCA HAD TO DO DOUBLE WORK ON TOP OF ALL THE OTHER PROBLEMS. WHAT A PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE REALTOR I HAD THE LUCK TO FIND . THERE WERE SO MANY PROBLEMS THAT CAME UP WITH THIS DEAL COULD HAVE ONLY BEEN HANDLED BY SOMEONE AS TALENTED AS FRANCESCA. I RECOMMEND HER AND AM WILLING TO SPEAK WITH ANYONE THAT NEEDS A GREAT REALTOR.. Fern Weiss
"Francesca is a one of a kind realtor!! She goes above and beyond for her clients!! I lived in a beautiful townhome in Sherman Oaks for 25 years, As I age I knew the steps would be difficult. I was in no hurry and wanted to find that special forever home. Other realtors had tried to talk me into settling for a home that was not my style and did not meet my needs. Francesca was different. She worked with me for over 1 1/2 years She was patient, professional yet persistent. She opened my eyes to moving out of Sherman Oaks and I now own a single level home in Westlake Village! Thank you Francesca!! Francesca communicated with me every step of the way making the process flow smoothly I am thrilled with the results of 2 transactions (selling my townhome and buying my home ). If you need a hard working realtor who puts her clients first Call Francesca!!!"
We want to thank you for doing such a great job for us, in both selling our house and helping us to find our new home. Working with you was a world of difference compared to our past experience when buying our first home 10 years ago. You kept us completely informed throughout the processes of selling one house and buying another. The transition couldn't have gone any smoother. You really know your stuff, and we are grateful at how much you went out of your way to make sure we were taken care of and working things out in our best interests throughout all negotiations.
During the sale, you were great at accommodating us and working around our schedules. Your attention to detail when presenting the home made a difference. Thank you for helping us though what could have been a difficult time of showing our home, getting pre-approved, and looking for a new home.
We were impressed at your instincts when helping us to find a new home. You listened to our input at every home we looked saw, and helped us to narrow down our search to houses we were most interested in, and in locations that fit our criteria. Your communication with the seller was definitely a key in working things our for our purchase of the home and working out the details of our move.
Thank you for going above and beyond for us. You're a great agent and a wonderful person."
- Mike and Maria
I want to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us get our new home. We knew it was meant for us as soon as we walked in the door, and you knew it too. I'm glad we made the switch and you became my agent. I could tell right away we were a good fit. You praised the condo and spoke highly about the owner.. making me feel I was investing in a quality property.
From the beginning and throughout the closing process, you were always on top of it, and quickly available when I had questions. You patiently and knowledgeably walked me through any questions I had, no matter how big or small. During the closing period you were even helpful with Roz's apartment search during her relocation.
You made sure that all deadlines were met, and tirelessly stayed on top of the process. I appreciated your upbeat attitude, solid good work and dedication to get the job done from start to finish.
I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a new home, even my mother. Thanks again!!!"
- Hunilla Fodor
As we did few times before, we would like to take a tiny fraction of the time you have spent for us and thank once again.
The kindness, patience, devotion and professional service succeeded our expectations and beyond.
This deal could have not been sold by anyone else considering the complexity, multi owners and miscommunication between them.
YOU ARE THE BEST."
- Doran and Liat
"Francesca was referred by a colleague when I was in need of finding a tenant for my Woodland Hills rental property. Francesca responded promptly in gathering comps on neighboring rentals and setting up showings for prospective tenants. She handled background and financial checks on each interested party quickly and throughly. Just as rapidly Francesca found multiple well-qualified prospects and the unit was rented at fair market value in short order. I could not be more pleased with her overall professional demeanor and handling of the smallest detail with such brisk efficiency."
- Jim Anderson
"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Francesca Luteraan over the last three years. Francesca has been our realtor for three separate transactions. It has been comforting to work with someone so professional and diligent. My husband and I were very picky buyers when searching for our perfect family home. We looked for almost a year with a long list of things we wanted. Francesca was always patient and confident that we would find what we wanted, and she was right. Later, when selling the other two properties she kept everything running on time. Her persistence is what kept the sales on time. She also did a great job of keeping us informed at all times. She helped answer our questions every step of the way and made sure we were getting the best deal possible. She even gave us advice that was not in her best interest, by telling us not to hold the property and not sell it as we were upside down. I would highly recommend Francesca for anyone who is looking to sell or buy , she is without question the very best!"
- Martin and Azy
I wanted to thank you for the incredible job you did in selling my home. The fact that you listed it on MLS on a Monday, had multiple showings that day, had multiple offers starting on Tuesday after very successful open house, and had accepted offer by Thursday, is a true testament to your extraordinary skills and expertise in marketing and selling homes for your clients.
I was also incredibly impressed with your dedication and involvement during every aspect of the escrow process, so that escrow closed in just 30 days. Without your great experience and expertise, I doubt that my home would have sold and closed escrow so quickly.
I will remain forever grateful for all your great efforts and the results that exceeded my every expectation, in connection with sale of my home."

"My wife, Annette, and I had lived in our West Hills home for 20 years, raised three children there, and hosted dozens of holiday events there. We had designed the backyard to be an entertainer’s dream – and we’d enjoyed morning coffees to the sight of all kinds of birdlife, as well as late evening meals accompanied by the sound of a gentle fountain. So, for us, deciding to sell our house was both a big decision and an emotional one.
We couldn’t have found a better representative for the sale of our home than Francesca Luteraan of Rodeo Realty in Calabasas. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market – our house sold within three days, for more than the asking price. She is promptly responsive to her clients’ needs – our phone calls or emails were returned within 60 minutes without fail. She is tireless when it comes to helping find your next home – we looked for months, and Francesca never grew weary of what seemed to us an endless search. She found us the house of our dreams, by the way. Dedicated to her clients one hundred percent, Francesca is a great colleague and ally whose unflagging optimism is truly infectious.
Simply put, you can look – but you will not find a more attentive, engaged, caring, or financially savvy representative to list your home for sale than Francesca Luteraan. She has been a great partner to us – but more importantly – she has been a great friend."
- Kelly Ward
"There is no-one better in the valley! Francesca puts in more effort, is more knowledgable and more patient than any realtor I've ever met. I can also vouch for her complete integrity and honesty - if something is not right she would rather see her client walk away than make a mistake - these are rare qualities indeed!"
- Rob Archer
I appreciate the 110% effort I received from you in order to purchase my first home. I could not have done it without your help. It was a learning experience and you were there the whole way.
Keep in touch with me and let me know how things are going."

"To One and All:
If you are considering working with Francesca Luteraan in either the selling of your home or in the purchasing of a new one, Congratulations! You need look no farther because you have found the most outstanding Realtor!
It does not get any better than having Francesca on your side. To start, when we were looking for a home, Francesca was right there, supplying us with leads, patiently waiting through our on-again, off-again desire to purchase property as well showing us many properties, all with no pressure. It quickly became clear that it was her desire to find us the right home with the right fit for us, not the fastest home she could sell us.
The real estate market at the time we were looking was so aggressive that a home on the market on its first day was getting multiple offers. When Francesca showed us a home that was exactly what we were looking for (the first day it was on the market!), Francesca helped us secure this home by helping us package our offer, aggressively presenting our offer in person, and by utilizing her many professional skills to ensure that we got the home of our dreams. She did not let us down. We were in a multiple bid situation and because of her immediate, personal negotiation of the deal as well as her skill and expertise (not to mention her personable approach), no bidding war began and we were immediately the winning bidder on our dream house.
Francesca continued to patiently and competently guide us through the escrow process every step of the way, always getting back to us immediately with answers to our questions and surrounding us with an amazing team of professionals to assist us. With our consent, Francesca initiated and successfully negotiated (in a sellers market) monies to come back to us from the seller during escrow. We finished escrow and obtained our dream home in an amazing 20 days, only because we had the most competent, patient, knowledgeable, and personable Realtor, Francesca Luteraan, working with us.
Thank you, Francesca, you are truly one in a million! ANYTIME we need a Realtor, or a family member or friend needs a realtor, we are recommending you!
So once again, to the prospective buyer or seller considering utilizing Francesca Luteraan as your Realtor, look no farther because you have found the best!"

"Francesca was completely knowledgeable in all aspects of selling our home and helping us purchase our new home. She has many contacts and relationships for all the inspections needed. We even used her recommendation for the person who helped us finance our new home. She kept us in the loop constantly and was always extremely responsive. We did notice other agents who were coming to view the house just wouldn’t show up or call and that is NOT Francesca. We would call her at night and she would get us scheduling scheduling to view homes the next morning. It was an outstanding experience for something that should’ve been extremely stressful. Thank you so much Francesca!"
"Francesca is really professional and helpful in many aspects of buying our house.She answers our call immediately and also quick with the text and email too.She is a very good adviser and very good in documenting and follow ups."
