I have known Lenny Herndon since 1979 when he helped my parents with the purchase of a home in greater Atlanta. In 1984 he helped my parents sell the same property. Then in 2003 he helped my wife and I with our first home purchase in Brookhaven, GA. In 2009 he helped my brother with his first home purchase in Cumming, GA. In 2019 he helped my parents with the purchase of a condominium in Cumming, GA when they moved back into the Atlanta area. Just last month he helped my father sell the Cumming condominium. Bravo-with Lenny we didn't have to worry about any of the details. Jeff G.

First, I feel so lucky and am grateful to meet Lenny to guide us into the right path in our such long and difficult journey to purchase a right house. I would highly recommend Lenny with confidence to any one who is searching for a great realtor whose focus is about what his client needs. Below is a journal of our experience to work with Lenny who has been providing us accurate information to assess the value of a house with his extensive knowledge and experience. After the Covid-19 pandemic created such unprecedented real estate market condition, my wife and I had to move out where we lived and find new home in such limited time frame which puts a lot of mental pressure and stress. It didn’t take much time to realize that we as a home buyer may be encountered so much disadvantage and challenging process not only to find a right house but more difficult to win biding game to buy a house. After going through several unsuccessful bidding process, we were frustrated and loosing hopes to think that it may not be possible to buy the right house. We may have to either lower our expectation a lot or adding much more budget which I thought it was ridiculous number if we wanted to win the bidding war. During this time, number of realtors whom we worked with weren’t much help to guide us. Most of them were only interested in how fast they can sell a house so they can move to next client. I felt that I didn’t get enough advice or help that I was needed. Instead, all I was told was I needed go with much higher number regardless how unreasonable the price tag of a house was. Then, we met Lenny. At the very first meeting at a house, he explained to us about pros and cons of the house. He did not try to persuade us to make quick decision buying into a house that we might be disappointed with down the road. He also explained us with detail about the house condition, such as HVAC, Plumbing, Structure, and so on. He had such immense knowledge when it comes to assessing the condition of a house accurately without missing any detail. That first meeting was so different than our experience with previous realtors. Next time we met at another house, he explained us again about good and not good side of the house assessment which was very informative and educational. I believe over all we looked at ten houses together, and every time, if there is any negative issue of a house, he was not shy to point out why the house may not be good to purchase. I learned so much from him during the time what to look for when choosing the right house. I also learned that buying a house requires multiple stages which a buyer has to take each stage as equally important. Communication with him was so smooth and done in timely manner. I sent him so many emails, texts and phone calls, and he answered all my inquiries and provide me with answers, advice and solutions. Sometimes, I was thinking I am asking too much of his time and questions, but he was always responding my inquiries with professional and respectable manner and I deeply appreciate it. I believe that if we didn’t have Lenny to work with us, we were not able to close the house. His knowledge, experience and caring for his client’s need were how we were able to purchase our house, and we are very happy and grateful with his great effort and dedication to guide us to close the house. In the end, I feel that not only we purchased the right house but also more importantly I truly think that we gained one good friend. I would like to thank Lenny again for all his hard work for helping us, and strongly recommend him to any one who is needing a right realtor for their needs.

We could not have any more good things to say about Lenny. His incredible wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as his refreshing honesty, was very helpful as we worked to purchase our first home. Lenny was instrumental in guiding us through the process and getting us into a great home. A great person to have in your corner!

My wife and I had a great experience working with Lenny. He helped us buy our dream home and sell another property. Lenny is proactive, efficient, and honest. We gave him very aggressive timelines and he took care of everything. I highly recommend his services, especially if you have limited time and high expectations. He is definitely one of the best in the industry.

I cannot disagree more with the previous review. We found Lenny online and he is by far the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure to work with. His approach is thorough, honest, and transparent. That should be appreciated by all even if honesty conflicts with your initial approach. I valued the steady and unbiased advice given based upon his many years of experience. To back the above claim you should know we fell in love with a potential home and Lenny politely pointed out why it was not the home of our dreams even when we wanted to see it three more times! Lenny always had a positive attitude and never complained while showing us more than 10 additional homes until we found our new home. How many realtors show up with all the paperwork they could possibly dig up on a potential home? Lenny does! With 32 years of experience, he is a stellar realtor that I strongly encourage everyone to use. His negotiation skills, referrals, and internal drive brought our deal to a successful close. He is both a true partner and trusted advIsor and we could not ask for more when making the largest purchase of our lives.

Lenny's the BEST! We were referred to Lenny by a friend who knew we were relocating from out of state. It was a very tight market and we felt a lot of pressure to relocate quickly, even if it meant giving-in on some of our family's needs. Lenny didn't let that happen. He gave us all the time we needed to see homes and talk about them. He gave us excellent advice on market value and home styles which shielded us from poor decisions we might have otherwise made. You'll find Lenny to be honest, straight-forward, and a model of integrity. He'll give you his honest opinion about the pros and cons of a home and speak openly with you about why it may or may not meet your needs. Lenny's years of experience and professional reputation will help you find the right home at the right price. In fact, Lenny reached out to both agents and home owners in an effort to help our family find a home. In the end, Lenny's marketing efforts found us a home that hadn't even hit the market. I'm not sure when we'll relocate away from Atlanta, but I don't lose sleep worrying about selling our home, because Lenny found us a great one and, when it's time, he'll sell for us as well. Thanks, Lenny!!

I simply cannot say enough about Lenny Herndon as a person, and a professional. We met Lenny in 2017 while looking for our first home, and he was outstanding. From the beginning, Lenny was kind, professional, and very informative. His knowledge of the Atlanta market, and real estate in general, is remarkable. We had met other realtors who were pushy and it seemed, just interested in making a sale. Lenny was just the opposite; he moved at our speed and made sure we were comfortable each step of the way. When we were ready to move forward, he went to work quickly, advocating for us and making sure we had a fair shot. Because of Lenny, we ended up getting the exact property that we wanted. He has followed up several times since our purchase just to see how things are going and to make sure we know he is here to help if we need anything. We wouldn't want anyone else on our side when it comes to purchasing real estate. Lenny Herndon has earned our highest recommendation.

Lenny was a true professional in every sense of the word. He worked with us for over a year providing us great guidance , information which ultimately led to a wonderful experience. His vast experience and keen insight helped us on both sides of our transactions (selling and buying). He was super responsive and not pushy at all....His approach and filter that would he buy this made us completely comfortable with our experiences. Hopefully we are done with Home Shopping for a bit but if we did end back in the market, my first call would be to Lenny.

Lenny Herndon is the go to guy for residential real estate in the Atlanta area. He has been at this for decades and has experienced many different roles in the business, including sales, rentals, and finance. He has even earned a law degree and license in order to maintain exceptional expertise in all aspects of finding, financing, purchasing, and closing the deal for a new home. My wife and I were very lucky to have encountered Lenny with us having no knowledge at all of the Atlanta area. He was always available to answer our questions, arrange for a walk through, or give his impression of the property of interest. He always came prepared with comps, tax records, and alternative listings for us to consider. Great job, Lenny! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Five Stars for Lenny. I could not have done my move (purchase) with out his expertise. Lenny was very professional, personable, trustworthy, kind, I cannot find enough words to describe what a wonderful individual he is. Lenny went above and beyond his line of duties to ensure that I got every thing in place to make my purchase seamless including the school for my grand daughter. The school that she is now attending is the best in the Atlanta area! nWhat an asset to the real estate world! Thank you Lenny Herndon for everything. nBeverly Fraser Roberts

We worked with Lenny Herndon on the purchase of a home in East Cobb. Our purchasing criteria included a specific neighborhood and schools. Lenny was extremely responsive when homes came on the market and the urgency to see them as quickly as possible. Lenny knew exactly what we were looking for and never gave up until we found the one for us. He was excellent in negotiating with other agents and his knowledge of his business is unsurpassed. Lenny is extremely professional, enjoys sharing his knowledge and a true pleasure to work with.

What a wonderful person to do business with. Lenny gave me confidence through out the entire process. He went above and beyond to make the buying process so easy and simple. Trustworthy all of the above. And when I finally came to Georgia every thing was as he said not mentioning the school that my grand daughter is now attending the best in Atlanta. WOW what an amazing man! nThank you Lenny.

    Lenny is a great realtor and I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a house.  He has a tremendous amount of knowledge of the local real estate market and most importantly, he has the best interests of his customers in mind.  If there was a detrimental factor to a property (close to a flood plain, power lines near by, road noise, etc), Lenny would proactively let us know about these factors.  Lenny definitely put the interests of my family and I above all else.   He was always a phone call away & he went the extra mile for us to make sure we found the perfect property.

    A new home search can be very daunting and there is no better way to begin than gaining an instant trust relationship with your agent. Lenny Herndon was exceptional in helping my wife and me through the complexities of making the largest purchase of our lives together. His experience with people and the market has made him a very personable professional. We always enjoyed seeing our new friend as he would provide fresh information and details of properties. From the first time that I met Lenny, I could tell that he was not going to be the ‘eager for a sale’ guy. Quite the contrary. He encouraged us to take our time and look at many properties and NOT to settle. Lenny provided valuable insight during our search and conversely, would point out elements of a home that he actually did NOT like about the offerings. This helped to broaden our purview and not be overly swayed from the first showings - an acutely professional move on his part. His innate sense of what felt right for his clients was paramount. I was very impressed. His several decades of experience in the real estate field as a broker/agent was in evidence here. Additionally, I have to add that we 3 had a good time together throughout our search, shared some laughs and now have developed a lasting friendship. I couldn’t recommend Lenny Herndon more. Everything went smoothly with the closing and we are very happy with our new purchase. I’m now in the process of having him list our old home as we speak. Lenny is absolutely 5 stars all the way! I’m certain that you will feel the same. RICHARD B

    Lenny was a real pleasure to work with. We were hesitant since we contacted him through Realtor.com but we could not recommend Lenny enough. He was prompt with follow ups and amazing at providing information the general public does not have access to, only realtors. He was readily available to answer my one million questions. He was present and involved in all inspection report details and follow ups regarding things we wanted to have repaired. He is also great at price negotiations. His many years of experience have definitely paid off and make him a realtor expert! Jenny Prinsell

    Lenny was amazing to work with. My family and I are new to Georgia, and Lenny took the time to help us understand the unique circumstances that would impact resale value: elevation, basement, etc. We've been in our house for 6 months, and it's what we love the very most about Georgia! Thank you, Lenny, for helping us find the PERFECT home for our family!! Kristi
    Lenny was fantastic! The most attentive real estate professional I have ever worked with...both during and after the process. My absolute highest recommendation. Christian Leard

    Best realtor I've had. Was extremely lucky to have an honest person that in no way pushed a sales. Was absolutely respectful of my timing, educated me on how to buy a house and the deal was a success. Claudio Menegusso
    Would absolutely work with Lenny again and refer him to any friend or family member. He's phenomenal-- incredibly knowledgeable, exceptionally patient and will always have your best interests in mind. He helped us look for 2 years until we found our dream home. He will tell you what he really thinks, which is invaluable and guide you throughout the process. Susan
    Lenny is the best realtor that we have worked with. He's trustworthy and resourceful. The best part is, he's pickier than me. Very important. Vincent Huang
