Recommend without Qualification”
Cynthia is a wonderful realtor who has gone above and beyond in finding me a 55 plus community to purchase a home in.  Her patience and expert advice made a complex and important decision easier to make.  She handled the offer and negotiation for my home in Cortesa in Esencia brilliantly, assisted with my loan and escrow process with a willingness to forward documents and communicate with the Shea Homes sales team when I was unavailable to do so, and was present at all the inspections.  She has even been there for warranty appointments after I took possession of the home when I was unavailable.
This is the realtor you want when buying a home.  I can recommend her without qualification!
As further qualification I met Cynthia a year before I was ready to sell my home in Malibu and to purchase a home in Orange County.  We met every 3 months so she could take me to all the 55 plus communities so I would know where I would want to purchase.  She created a personalized website for listings by area,  price, size, and photos so that I could pick the ones I would like to see.  When I put my house on the market she even listed it on her website.  I am so glad that I found Cynthia. She really cared that I find the right home in a 55 plus community in Orange County which I was not familiar having lived and worked in the LA area most of my adult life.  I cannot thank Cynthia enough for making my purchase the right one.

“Knowledge, Time & Patience!”

Cynthia LeMay is a professional with both intelligence and insight. She showed us as many houses as we needed to see to recognize the perfect home when we entered it. She then guided us through the process of making the right Offer all the way through Closing Escrow. We are relocating from a state where the entire Real Estate transaction is done differently and can’t imagine we would have purchased this home without her knowledge, time and patience. Cynthia is an expert on the homes located in Active 55+ communities and most importantly, the activities and amenities!

“My Hero!”

During a time of uncertainty for me with my difficult home situation Cynthia was a very gracious yet clear guide for me in selling my home. Her knowledge far surpassed any prior real estate dealings I’d had in the past. And if not for her expertise, this sale would not have closed. She oversaw every aspect of the process with her wealth of knowledge that kept all in check, all the while being my very best advocate. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a trustworthy RealEstate Broker.

 ” She Works For The Client, Not For The Sale!”
I would be remiss in not writing this unsolicited letter of referral for Cynthia LeMay,
Broker/Realtor – Allure Properties. Last November, my husband and I sold a rental property in San Diego and thought we would take the profit from the sale and use it towards our retirement savings. That was before we spoke to our accountant who informed us that there would be a very large amount of money due to the government. We immediately had to find a knowledgeable realtor who thoroughly understood the immediacy of a 1031 exchange. We had 45 days upon our San Diego closing on November 13th to identify another property we wanted to purchase in order to avoid this huge tax payment. Needless to say, we had to act quickly in the ‘hot real estate market’ of southern CA.
Through a referral, we met Cynthia LeMay on November 19th and instantly had a strong
connection to her; we were impressed with her knowledge of a rental exchange to avoid tax
penalties. With that being said, she implemented a serious search for properties in our price range.
Within a few days, after gathering pertinent information, we met with her and began the long,
tedious process of finding a rental property in a safe community in a high-achieving, academic
school district. After numerous emails with MLS attachments and meeting with Cynthia at many
sites, we finally found a place. Cynthia put in an offer with a 24 hour stipulation of acceptance or
rejection. Because of her tenacity, the offer was accepted on December 17th, less than one month from initiating our difficult search. At every step of the way, Cynthia used her knowledge to help us to
navigate the complexities of a real estate purchase with its rules and regulations imposed by the
state and financial institutions. Her professional ability ensured our smooth transition from
purchase offer to closing. After closing, she went beyond the call of duty, giving 100% effort by assisting us in securing a new tenant for our rental. She did this gratis, only wanting us to vet a financially sound, reliable rental candidate. Our renter took residency on April 20th, the final end to a long, arduous journey.
Cynthia LeMay is a one-of-a-kind realtor and will forever be in our gratitude. She works for the
client, not for the sale! I offer this unsolicited recommendation without reservation. I would highly recommend her to any potential buyer or seller.

“Trustworthy Go-Getter!”

My wife and I relocated out of southern California and were faced with the daunting task of selling 3 rental properties within a very short period of time. We were privileged to have had the opportunity to work with Cynthia throughout each of these sales, as her timeliness, communication, professionalism, and attention to detail were critical to making these sales happen quickly. I especially appreciated her direct, no nonsense communication style- Cynthia tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear, saving you time, money, and aggravation in the long run. I would highly recommend her services to anyone selling or purchasing property in southern California!

I do not take these recommendations lightly. I give them only when they are really deserved. Cynthia Le May is a wonderful, remarkably knowledgeable real estate agent and executive. She is hard working and gets amazing results. She knows the real estate profession in/out and always has her client’s best interest in mind when making recommendations which are designed to help the client and not necessarily just to make a sale. She is warm, compassionate, on-time, and tenacious. Her knowledge of the profession is incredible. I would again engage her professional services when necessary. She is truly an outstanding real estate professional. Sincerely, Terry Kolasa



I have no words to express my gratitude towards Cynthia, she has been an excellent realtor, lovely friend, very professional when it comes to purchasing a home or selling it. I have bought and sold my home with her, and while doing so was out of state, but I had peace of mind knowing that my home was in safe hands. I trust her knowledge about the industry and can recommend her to all my friends… I cannot thank her enough for all the help she extended without being pushy….if I have to buy again I will do so only with her.  Thank you Cynthia for all your help😊😊.

Over the years we have dealt with many realtors, so we consider ourselves quite fortunate to have found Cynthia LeMay on 55places.com. As we planned our move from N.J. to Southern California, Cynthia made herself available every step of the way. Using her knowledge, professionalism, honesty and experience she was able to find us our home at Del Webb at Gavilan in Rancho Mission Viejo. Cynthia was available and supportive during the entire moving process making it as stress free as possible. We cannot speak highly enough of Cynthia and totally recommend her if you are moving 5 miles or 2,500 miles away.


Chuck Weisbin 

My wife and I greatly benefitted from the guidance offered by Cynthia, who is warm, cooperative, professional and highly competent.


Gary And Gerry Eldred 

Cynthia guided us through the process of buying our new home through Standard Pacific Builders in the Gavilan 55+ community of Rancho Mission Viejo in Orange County, California. She was available every step of the way and took a personal interest in our “wants.” She was prompt in our meetings at the development and in answering our questions via email or telephone. We would highly recommend her for future buyers.


Linda Nicholudis 

Cynthia is an exceptional broker. Her knowledge, experience, negotiating skills and personality put us at ease while selling our home in San Clemente. She was, “spot on” with her information and is now helping us find our dream home. I would always recommend having Cynthia on your side of a real estate transaction.
