What our clients are saying...

The best knowledge of the desert. You will not find any better people for knowledge, skill and to me the most important, personality. They are the best!

by Rick S. Palm Springs, CA

You won't find two people more dedicated to doing everything possible to make buying and selling an excellent experience from start to finish.

by Kris M.K. Mesa, AZ

These two are the best and I'm sure that they continue to enjoy much success.

by Mike Livingston Livingston Home Inspections , Palm Springs, CA

Truly a wonderful source for some of the best real estate services and what to do in the desert!! FIND EM, WORK WITH EM, & EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE!!

by Jacob B. Palm Springs, CA

We bought our home in Four Seasons Community with the help of Frankie and Leslie, they are a great team to work with from start to finish. They were always available to show homes and answer questions about different neighborhoods, options, current market etc. The paper work was seamless and made a easy transition and timely closing. We are very happy with our new home and would recommend them to friends.

by Loni and Art Palm Springs, CA

Frankie and Leslie sell homes.... not houses!!!

by Bill Lavin Bill Lavin Designs , Rancho Cucamonga, CA

If buying the right home is important, these two are about the details and quality. If doing it worry free is as well, then allow me to let you in on something you'll soon find out, Frankie and Leslie epitomize "fun". Be warned however, that you will not only fall in love with your new home, and as well you should, but you will fall in love with them. You will stalk them, you will put on disguises just to follow them unseen, you will buy and sell homes just to hang out with them. Truly I love these two, professionally, and as the biggest hearts that can possibly fit inside humans.

by Lucky Nahum Vluxe Design , Rochester, NY

Great people. They know their product! They understand their market.

by Ed Pedalino Cabinets of the Desert , Palm Desert

Best experience buying a house! Frankie and Leslie are high energy go-getters. They were our agents as we bought our home in Palm Springs. They are professional in every way and have a team backing them up in making sure all the "T"s are crossed and "i"s are dotted. When we became a bit anxious at one point they were the source of calm explanations of whats next. They also have provided us with proven referrals to the professional trades for future needs and repairs. Go with Frankie and Leslie...you'll be happy.

by Jeff and Julie Palm Springs, CA

I first met Frankie by chance at an art gallery in Palm Springs. When he told me he was a realtor I was beyond happy - I was looking for a new home and a realtor to help me. We set up a time for the next day and I met with Frankie and Leslie to view a couple of properties as they wanted to find out exactly what I was looking for. Frankie and Leslie are the best! They were patient and kind, knowledgeable and professional. I returned home to Santa Cruz and kept in contact with them until I returned to Palm Springs. We spent the morning viewing properties and found just what I wanted. They are a great team. I was able to do everything long distance - they stepped up and took care of everything for me. I couldn’t be happier and I recommend them highly. They know the area so well and I felt that they truly care for their clients. I’d give them 10 stars because 5 just aren’t enough!

by Elissa Canepa, Rancho Mirage

Leslie Amick and Frankie Luizza were our agents for a recent home we bought in Palm Springs which in a short time has become our desert dream home. We didn't know if this home could be within our reach but Leslie and Frankie helped make it happen. They couldn't have represented us with greater knowledge and integrity. The whole buying process was smooth, professional and trouble-free. They fast-tracked us and got us the exact home we wanted at a fair price. It was service on a Silver Platter and now in Palm Springs .....Loving my Life!

by Dr. David Draper - Los Angeles

The first thing that comes to mind when you meet Frankie and Leslie is authenticity. Their integrity, attention to detail and tireless work ethic make them the best realtors I have ever worked with. If you’re thinking of buying or selling your desert home look no further, Frankie and Leslie will be there for you every step of the way!

by Louise M. - Palm Desert

Frankie and Leslie were amazing!! We sold our condo in Palm Springs in less than one week and it was the cleanest sale we have ever had. It could not have gone smoother. Frankie and Leslie were great communicating with us throughout the process. They go above and beyond expectations. We will definitely use them again for our next sale or purchase

by Todd F. & Quang N. Palm Springs

Recently we decided to sell our existing condo. We had a beautiful mid-century modern condo that was in a desirable complex in Palm Springs but decided that we needed to move to a larger space and a free standing home. We had identified 3 realtors, including a local realtor that is considered the “experts” on mid-century modern real estate. We had scheduled interviews with the 3 realtors when we received a letter from Frankie and Leslie about selling our condo. They had just recently listed a unit in our complex and were looking to see if other members of the community were considering selling. Based on this we figured we would include them in the mix of realtors to interview. We were impressed with Frankie and Leslie when we met them. Of all of the agents we met they were the most motivated and they provided us with a great deal of information on the property and the current market. They were also the only agents that listened to us and understood our needs, both in terms of what we expected/hoped to get out of the sale of our existing condo. They were also the only ones that told us the listing price we were thinking, knowing what price we needed to get to be able to move on, was a good price. All of the other agents suggested a lower price to list the property, which turned out to be lower than the price we eventually got. In addition Leslie and Frankie told us the colors that we had painted, which were popular colors in mid century properties, were fine and that there was no need to repaint. The local expert on mid century properties had suggested that we repainted to a boring beige color. They also told us not to fix some minor superficial issues in the unit, that those could be used in future negotiations. When we listed the condo they understood that we both work from home a majority of the time and worked with to get the property shown a lot with minimal impact on our daily and professional lives. They also gave us plenty of notice of showings and worked to have multiple showings in a tight timeframe reducing the interference in our lives. They always followed up with each potential buyer that came thru the condo to learn what, if any concerns, potential buyers had with the place. In a short matter of time they determined that the biggest negative that many potential buyers expressed was the concern about the traffic noise (we were close to a major thru fare in Palm Springs) and how best to continue to market the place. Not once did they suggest dropping the list price, as many realtors had suggested when we sold property in the past. When we did get an offer they helped us negotiate a better price, while minimizing the amount that we agreed to credit the buyer for the minor repairs that were requested. The unit sold in less time than the average length of time that most properties in Palm Springs sell. As I stated earlier we were able to get more for the property than the other agents had suggested as a list price, thus giving us more money in our pocket. In addition just before the home inspection we had their handyman over to look over the property and make recommendations on items to repair before the official home inspection. By doing this there were fewer items on the home inspection report, and we did not have to offer a larger credit to the buyer. Since we had agreed to use them for purchasing our next place they lowered their commission, thus providing us with more cash in our pockets. When we switched from seller to buyer they really listened to our needs and wants (another mid century modern home and our budget). Unlike other realtors that we had worked with in the past they sent us only properties that met our expressed needs and wants in our price range. Not once did they suggest that why don’t you stretch a little more to get us into a more expensive property than we felt comfortable purchasing. When we found the perfect place they moved very quickly to get our offer in. Once again they helped with the negotiations getting us a better price as well as a larger credit back from the seller to repair things that we found in the home inspection. During the entire process they introduced us to others to help us get a good mortgage ra3 as well as tradesman for repairs. Again this help and the attention to detail helped save us money. If you are looking for a realtor to help maximize the potential in your home as well as sell it quickly we highly recommend using Frankie and Leslie with Capitis Real Estate in Palm Springs. If we were ever to move again in the Palm Springs area we would no question use Leslie and Frankie. Not only were they great realtors but they have become great friends. Palm Springs CA

We were very pleased with the level of care Frankie and Leslie provided. They asked and listened to what we wanted in a home, and did not waste our time with properties that did not have our "must haves" A very unique property came along, and we were able to view the day before it was listed, ultimately buying We feel very fortunate to have secured the property before others and could not have been more pleased with Frankie and Leslie's service DCF of Rancho Mirage

To whom it may concern; My journey to purchasing a property in Cathedral City with the help of Frankie and Leslie began during Modernism Week 2020. During a lull in all of the activities, I decided to visit a few open houses. I was fortunate to meet Frankie at the second open house that I visited. We clicked immediately, and meeting Leslie was an added bonus. Long story short, we found a condo that I loved, and they guided me through to a successful purchase, even as the COVID 19 crisis came crashing down around us. I cannot list enough accolades for these two delightful people. They are energetic, passionate about their work, honest to a fault, very knowledgeable, and perhaps best of all, are fun to be around. I feel that I have gained two great new friends. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them to anyone in search of a property here in the desert. Jack Jewell 7/23/2020

My name Forrie H , I live in Bellingham , Wa . There are lots of people in my life , I am a Contractor here in Bellingham , but there are NOT many like Frankie and Leslie . I met them when I was out to dinner in PS , and immediately felt this connection with Frankie , and soon followed with Leslie. I had a house at that time in Palm Springs and was not in love with it and asked them to list it and sell it . I come down like once a month and the process of selling my home was incredible. Being out of town and selling was no issue at all . The “peace “they supply and leadership is above and beyond . Being away , and having the conversations over video and chats was so comforting. And then…they sold it !! Well the best part is to come. Covid 19 hit ... I wanted a mid Century condo ... we searched and viewed and then I could not fly down there to view or walk thru any homes or condos, but that didn’t matter to Frankie and Leslie. They sent me listings of condos and we also did FaceTime when they were touring something I might like ... and then .. we found the “ ONE”!! They described the unit and walked me thru the unit, did the research, did things I didn’t even ask or know of to prepare me for the purchase of my condo. My perfect mid century condo!! But it doesn’t stop there .... I was introduced to a team of incredible professionals that take care of everything... I mean everything. Plus they introduced me to Howard ... the most kind and gentle , mortgage broker.. he put my loan package together with the greatest of ease. Frankie and Leslie kept telling me to just relax and let their team take care of this process and for me to just work and do my thing up here in Bellingham ... and I did . Their team is amazing. Seriously they are . The purchase was great.. but the greatest thing I got out of this was meeting two incredible people . They are my Realtors ... but foremost , they are my friends, I gained two incredible friends, and their team are my friends. .Howard is my friend. It’s not like Frankie and Leslie sell you a home and move on to the next .... they help you furnish it and design it and they have so many connections with the right people that if you need anything done ... it gets done. I just did some upgrades in my condo this month and their team of contractors did the work and it was incredible. Can’t wait to see it all !! Well, I gained two friends for the rest of my life and a beautiful, incredible Mid century condo .. Thank you Leslie and Frankie for all you have done for me . Love you both !! Palm Springs

Leslie and Frankie of Capitis Real Estate came to my Cathedral City condo in Cathedral Canyon Country Club prepared, educated, organized and with an "energy of confidence". I had remodeled my condo and had a higher selling price in mind compared to most comps in my area. Unlike the 3 other agents I interviewed they clearly understood my vision. I listed the condo with Frankie and Leslie just prior to the Covid shutdown. They educated themselves on new procedures during the shutdown and within 21 days we had a very good and solid offer. Escrow, inspections, safety details, and paperwork was extremely efficient and closing was pretty close to our target date. I will definitely call Frankie and Leslie when I can get back to the desert. I want to Thank You both for watching out for my kitties and watering the plants! With out any doubt...a 5 Star🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 Team!

Frankie and Leslie had a solid contract for our Cathedral Canyon Country Club condo in a matter of days. They know the market and they guided us in setting the right price for our home, which resulted in a quick sale for us. Frankie and Leslie promptly responded to our questions and smoothly handled the process. The listing, contract, their communication, and their oversight/help with the inspection, escrow, and close of our property was done efficiently and professionally. We are grateful to them for their expertise and ease of working with them. We highly recommend Frankie and Leslie as competent, quality real estate agents.

My husband and l have dreamed of leaving the harsh Canadian winters to live in sunny Palm Springs. We found a home in a golf community, so we called the realtors Frankie and Leslie. With our first phone call we quickly realized how great they were. They made the buying process easy and were always there to answer any of our questions...day or night, and there were some late night calls. When we arrived at our home we were so excited. They greeted us with gift baskets and champagne. They live down the street from us and have become great friends. You will love their personality, generous hearts, honesty and their energy is contagious. l would highly recommend this wonderful team. Yar and Karin Calgary, Alberta Canada

We have had several different realtors through the years, but have never enjoyed working with anyone as much as we have Frankie & Leslie. When you hire them you get double the expertise, insight and great advice at every stage of the process; from pricing and listing copy to negotiations and strategy. First, they found us an exquisitely remodeled home with the best fairway and mountain view we have ever seen. Then, they took what could have been a very stressful experience for us making a cash offer on a new home, then listing our existing condo, and made it a quick and painless process. Before closing on our new home we received a solid full-price offer on our condo! They prescreened all potential buyers and hosted each showing, by appointment, to other realtors with their buyers. Even with California’s exhaustive forms and regulations, their team calmly guided us through every step of both closing processes. We whole- heartedly recommend Frankie & Leslie to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in the Coachella Valley. On a scale of 1 to 5, we give them a 6.

Wow! What a difference a good Real Estate Agent makes! Our previous Agent made us feel like we were a number, just a paycheck. Then we found Frankie and Leslie and everything changed. They made us feel like we'd known them forever. They made sure that we got exactly what WE wanted. They researched, gave great advice, and made the process stress free. If you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, who communicates in a timely manner, and who genuinely wants you to be happy, this is the team for you. We give Frankie and Leslie an enthusiastic 2 THUMBS UP!!! Allen & Harry

by Allen and Harry

“Where could we begin?! A friendship of over 40 years culminated in the purchase of our beautiful home in Palm Desert, and we couldn't have imagined it any other way! Our journey had spanned almost two years and Frankie and Leslie were patient and accommodating every step of the way. And when we went from casually looking for our forever home to the task of finding and purchasing a home in 30 days, the true measure of their professionalism kicked into gear. Frankie and Leslie masterfully led us through the process of finding us the right home and then stayed with us through the fast and furious process to get it done on a very tight deadline. They were kind and considerate of our concerns and the calm port we needed as we sped through the process. Every day that we are in our new beautiful home, we are reminded of how well they knew us and how well they knew the market. We can't imaging that we could have found a better home and we know that it was due to the talents and experience of both Frankie and Leslie. We couldn't imagine using any other realtors and, from the beginning, we knew that we were in the best hands possible. If you too are lucky enough to work with this dynamic duo, you will feel that you have gained both extraordinary realtors and friends for life!" Rick & Renee NH

Wow! Frankie & Leslie really made buying our new family home feel like a fun adventure. They are excellent agents! When we first met Frankie & Leslie we felt a real connection because of their warmth, their interest in us and our entire family, and their experience and depth of knowledge in the Palm Springs area real estate market. These folks definitely have a passion for what they do and you can tell that they love their job and the services they provide and they really enjoy getting to know their clients. The best part of the experience was how Leslie & Frankie listened to us and got to know us and our wants and desires, tastes and attitudes, and hopes and dreams. The homes they showed us demonstrated they were looking for a home well suited to our family while also showing us properties that helped us to see things we didn’t even know should be on our wish list. They explained everything in a way that was easy to understand from the making the offer, to working with our mortgage lender, inspectors and HOAs. They allowed us to guide the search so they could learn what excited and motivated us and then offered suggestions about neighborhoods, school proximity, safety, nearby shopping and services, and price points and amenities. We were negotiating buying a house during the COVID shelter-in-place and they guided us through the protocols and made us feel comfortable and safe. We were very touched by the fact that while they were working with us directly, they were also always looking out for the safety and satisfaction of our two teenage sons. We fell in love with the home we purchased the minute we drove up and walked through the door. From the listing, it was not a home we would have even put on our list, but Leslie identified it the minute it came on the market and encouraged us to take a look. It was like magic...it ticked all the boxes on the amenities we were looking for and then some, was in a ideal location with spectacular views, and it was priced right. We immediately knew we wanted to make an offer after the initial tour and we told them and they returned to talk with the sellers and begin the process to make an offer. They guided us every step of the way and we were under contract that same evening. In the end, they helped us find our dream home! We can’t speak highly enough of Frankie & Leslie as our real estate agents. Their professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity, compassion, and hard work ethic were very much appreciated and respected. They introduced us to all of the additional support people int he Capitis Real Estate office who would assist us through the purchase and escrow process. Jenn and Nancy the transaction managers and Carolyn the Escrow Officer were amazing too and made us feel comfortable and informed every step of the way. They are detail-oriented, transparent, good with people and really have a knack for matching the their clients with the ideal home. It was also heartwarming how much interest Frankie & Leslie took in making sure we were settled into our home after the sale. They followed up with us several times and even helped us find reputable vendors and service providers for some minor work and upgrades we wanted to do. Ultimately, we not only had realtors who helped us find our ideal new family home, we made some new friends along the way. Avi Goldberg & Will Garcia

How do you thank someone for making a dream, you didn’t know you had, come true! My husband and I met Leslie and Frankie through a mutual friend. We were taking a snow break in Palm Springs and met them. We had been trying for about 6 months in our home state of Washington to find a new home. We were very disappointed in the Real Estate agents as we had worked with a few both residential and commercial. We found them to be disinterested and unwilling to show us things in the price range we requested. They could never answer our questions regarding the property, neighborhood and covenants. When Frankie and Leslie wanted to show us a few homes and neighborhoods I didn’t expect to see much! After looking at only 3 homes we made an offer, the offer wasn’t excepted and they both seemed genuinely upset for us. We had dinner and we found that we had new friends! We left Palm Springs the next day to ski but I knew we would be back in the fall & looked forward to seeing Frankie and Leslie again. A week later they called us and said we have the perfect house for you… They sent us pictures and a video a day later and we were both in Love. We made our offer having only seen the pictures and the video…. the next day my husband said “Lets go back and see it”. They offer was excepted by the owner but he also thought we should see it. We drove 2 days back to Palm Springs to see the home and meet the owner. It was everything and more!!! A completely different style than our old home but it was absolutely perfect. Frankie and Leslie took time to get to know us, what we were trying to accomplish in establishing a home in Cathedral Canyon Country Club. They never pushed, there was no pressure…. Even when they sent us the video they told us if this isn’t it, we will find the home for you. Frankie and Leslie go out of their way to make getting a new home all about you. They connect with you…. and connect you to the resources you need. We have seen them buy furniture, take deliveries and meet friends for their clients. Now that we have our beautiful home, they have taken the time to introduce us to neighbors so that we will become a part of the community. I didn’t know I wanted a home here , I didn’t know I wanted modern… They did! Thank you Leslie and Frankie for making our Dream Come True…. Thank you for being more than our agent and Thank You for the wonderful friendship. Bob & Debra Taylor

A++ By chance, My husband and I met Frankie and Leslie at an open house they were holding in Rancho Mirage. From the moment we met, they were so incredibly welcoming, warm, fun and true professionals. We not only hit it off, but knew we would become lifelong friends. That day, after their open house, we invited them to our home in the Movie Colony of Palm Springs, where we hired them on the spot to list our home for sale; in addition, they were enlisted to help us located an interim home in the desert. Once we signed the listing agreement, they were off and running, leaving no stone unturned to locate a buyer, while they were also previewing and showing us other properties to purchase. They never rushed us, always took their time with us, listened to our needs and responded quickly. They quickly sold our Palm Springs home, making the process seamless and without stress. Prior to selling our home, they located our interim home and both went to work negotiating on our behalf; they struck a deal well below the seller's asking price. While the deals were both in motion, Frankie and Leslie didn't let that slow them down in seeing that every detail of each deal was followed through and completed in a timely and professional manner. A few years later (2021), my husband and I wanted to purchase a smaller pied-à-terre in Palm Springs in addition to our current home, something that would be a lock-and-go; we immediately phoned Frankie and Leslie! After just a few weeks, we located a property, they represented us in making a fast and successful offer; which was accepted immediately, the listing agent and their seller commented on how impressed they were with not only how the offer was written, but also presented. So, after representing us on the sell and purchase of three properties, we have to say that we would never work with anyone else. With Frankie and Leslie, they have your back, they are not looking to make a quick buck, only to make sure that their clients are fully represented and 100% happy with their services. They go to bat for you every time, as they are securely in your corner ! We HIGHLY recommend this fabulous duo, and are proud to call them our dear friends.
