REALTOR®  |  DRE# 01944775


The process of buying or selling a home is so much more than just a transaction, it is a life changing experience. Leslie Shafton is a Realtor who truly understands how significant this experience is, which is why she dedicates herself to each and every client, to ensure that they are cared for not only financially, but personally. As a third generation real estate professional, Leslie is a top-producing, award-winning professional who has gained a reputation for being a true advocate for her clients, working tirelessly on their behalf. From the first listing appointment to the last signature on the dotted line and beyond, Leslie works closely with her buyers and sellers so that they feel fully confident and informed in every decision they make.

Before pursuing a career in real estate, Leslie worked as a Clinical Psychologist. It was here that she learned the value and importance of understanding her clients needs, goals, and motivations. After moving to the Bay Area over a decade ago, she realized her passion for helping others lie outside of an office, and decided that she wanted to help others realize their dreams of finding a place to call home. Leslie is an expert of local neighborhoods, schools, and of course, the East Bay real estate market. She has two children who attend Walnut Creek public schools, and is deeply involved in community outreach and programs for change.

When she is not helping clients, Leslie enjoys encaustic art, volunteering in her community, participating in her synagogue, and spending time with her husband David and their two sons, Ben and Leo.


"Leslie was my agent for a purchase, as well as subsequent sale of my home in Walnut Creek, CA and she proved to be OUTSTANDING. Leslie competitively got me a home in a tight market, patiently showing everything available and giving good market guidance. It was during that sale that Leslie really delivered. She executed a marketing and positioning
strategy that delivered 4 excellent offers in only two days on the market. Sold within a week at 9.5% over asking price with great terms. Bottom line: great person to work with, strong market knowledge and savvy marketer."

“Leslie is great! She’s very knowledgeable about the market, she did extensive research work for me,comparing recent sales and pending sales in the area to make sure the price is right, while keeping on top of everything, communicating between us, selling agent and mortgage broker until the deal was signed! Will definitely recommend to anyone! We love our new house, Thank you Leslie!”

“Leslie went above and beyond to make everything as easy as possible as we made trips up from Southern California. I would absolutely recommend her as an agent and would definitely work with her again!”

“Leslie was so helpful! She took the time to understand our needs and the process was so easy! Even as first-time home buyers, we felt informed and knew what to expect through the entire process.”

“Leslie was extraordinary in helping us purchase our home in the insanely competitive East Bay market. She understood our search parameters at a truly personal level. Because she is so in-touch with local properties (listings and pre-list) and is so creative about how to use/improve space, we were very impressed with how well the properties
that she presented met our particular needs and are thrilled with the home we bought. Leslie’s understanding of buy/seller motivations and other “people” insights absolutely helped us negotiate a great value and close without issue. Rarely have I had the pleasure of working with anyone with such professionalism, focus and efficiency.”

“Leslie is very personable, an AMAZING listener, and in truth, understood our vision to precision. She thinks out of the box, is willing to stand by her clients even when the market is really tough, and because of that, she truly found us our dream home.”
