About John Leonardi
John grew up in the suburbs of New York City, moved to California in 1993 and he’s been a Folsom resident since 2000. He started his real estate career in 1996 and his diverse background in real estate includes a degree in architectural drafting, residential construction, title services and natural hazard disclosure.
John became a Realtor in 2006 and began selling real estate with one of the nations largest real estate companies.

John became determined to redefine the real estate client experience so he earned his real estate Broker license in 2014, left the large corporate big-box and founded Leonardi Real Estate. John’s focus is to offer a superior level of service, innovative marketing and a highly personalized, boutique-style experience to his clientele. Clients of Leonardi Real Estate can always expect discrete first-class service, transparency, honesty and integrity. John is also dedicated to giving back to the community and supports a multitude of charities.
Since starting his own brokerage, John has been named by local publications as one of the best real estate agents in Folsom and El Dorado Hills – Style Magazines ‘Best of’ awards voting him one of the Best Real Estate Agents for three consecutive years (2016-2018).
