Leti Vandensteen

Broker / Owner


After 25 years and over 750 homes sold, Leti Vandensteen has created an award winning track record for success through delivering clients superior results. A Los Angeles native, graduating from Cal State LA with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Minor in Marketing, Leti began investing in real estate in the mid 1980's. After working with her, Leti's real estate agent recognized her undeniable passion for houses and encouraged her to become an agent as well.

Leti took her advice and never looked back. Once she received her license, in 1990, she not only found her calling, Leti took real estate by storm; instantly winning Rookie of the Year honors and quickly establishing herself as one of LA's top agents.

Today, as the founder of the Vandensteen Group, Zillow premier agent, and trusted community leader, Leti's only continued to build upon her reputation for making the most out of every opportunity and exceeding the standard for client satisfaction. Best of all, with decades of experience and countless loyal clients, Leti Vandensteen may have a storied history, but she's really only just begun.
