I was born in Russia near the Black Sea and majored in Technical Design at College Number 42 in Tallinn, Estonia. The collapse of the USSR and ensuing uncertainty brought me to Portland in 1992. Fast-forward to now and I couldn’t be happier in our perfect city. I love spending time outdoors with my family whether it be family bike rides or chanterelle-hunting in the Tillamook Forest or tennis at Washington Park. I love sipping a Spanish coffee at Government Camp after a powder day on Mt. Hood and biking the Hollywood District on my 1945 Dayton Huffman cruiser.
I came to this city as an outsider and now, after years in real estate absorbing all of the wonderful things Portland has to offer, I am an insider ready to guide my clients through every step of the home buying or selling process. I know the Portland real estate market can be daunting to the casual observer but I can help navigate it and even make it fun!
I have had nothing but positive experiences with all of my clients and I look forward to many more. Give me a call or email today and let’s chat!
Best Regards, Lyudmila (Mila)
My wife and I worked with Lyudmila Leissler for the first time. From the first steps, we understood that she is a very responsive and thoughtful person. She spent a lot of time working with us on different options looking for houses in Portland, Hillsboro, Tigard, Beaverton and Happy Valley. Lyudmila is a very professional realtor, she understands what buyers need and she tries to show exactly what we need. We were very happy to work with her, we found a house of our dreams. -V. Eisen
Lyudmila is awesome! She helped us purchase our beautiful home on Corbett Ave. Because of her expertise we were able to get the seller to pay for $13,000 in closing costs. She also helped navigate a touchy situation regarding an easement with the neighboring property. I would highly recommend her! -S. Kathuria
Simply put, I loved my experience with Mila! As a first time home buyer, I had no idea how involved this was going to be. These old Portland homes have so many issues and she seemed to know about anything that arose or who exactly to call for specifics. Asbestos removal, illegal sewage systems, total kitchen demolitions, easements, you name it! She never told me what to do but she always pointed out pros and cons of each place to consider. These usually involved things I would never have thought of and it always helped my husband and I arrive at a decision. Paperwork was sent to our iphones for easy electronic signature (so convenient!!!) and she was very flexible when meeting with us to see homes day and night. She is extremely professional but she has this hidden little hardcore side to her that I loved so much. Kind of like having a high powered lawyer representing you before going to court, I had zero worries about her negotiating on our behalf. She knew when things were overpriced for the area, even down to the block. She coached us on what she thought was fair and what our next moves should be. When we were losing hope in the hunt, she was hopeful and patient. I absolutely would have settled on something that wasn't quite right for our family if it wasn't for her gentle guidance. The house we found and snapped up within two hours is literally our dream house. We will be eternally grateful for her help and will absolutely work with her again if we ever move. In short, she rocks. -C. Kennedy
Lyudmila is a delightful person and very professional realtor. She was very helpful in suggesting what my home needed in order to be presented to the market, and when we completed the upgrades and she brought the home to the market it sold within the week. I could not be more pleased! -G. Jones
As first-time buyers, Lyudmila was able to put us at ease and take charge of the process. She is knowledgeable and goes out of her way to be helpful. She was very familiar with the area and was proactive every step of the way. We were also out-of-state buyers, and Lyudmila arranged all the signing and negotiations professionally and promptly. We were miles away and yet felt completely comfortable because she was there, representing us. Lyudmila was a pleasure to work with, the purchase was seamless and now we call Portland our new home.… -M. Semionova
I worked with Mila for several months while I searched for the home I recently bought in Portland, OR. She was extremely patient with me while I visited many different properties in the process of trying to figure out exactly what I was looking for. She was always friendly and non-aggressive, yet extremely professional, available, and an overall pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home in the Portland area. -C. Polites
I have been working with Lyudmila for several years now. I as a lender, I have the opportunity to work with many Realtors and I can honestly say that Lyudmila is the best of the best in Portland area. Her professionalism, job knowledge, people skills, and passion for what she does makes her stand out in the crowd. I trust her to take care of my clients, friends, and family. Thanks, Lyudmila!! -R.
