Lenore Wilkas


Lenore, born in San Francisco, and raised in Palo Alto attended colleges in the Bay Area receiving a BA from San Francisco State University with a TV Production major/Music minor. She spent 32 years in the broadcasting industry, culminating her career at National  Public Radio in Washington, DC  before making her first career change. From broadcasting she moved to the Internet industry and was involved for 10 years working with startups, during the infancy of this exciting business.

Real Estate has always been an interest and an industry she wanted to migrate into, and did so in 2002, where she now works with her husband, Alex, helping people find the perfect home. Lenore’s philosophy is that looking for a home is like courting. You know when you’ve found the right one. And, because of this, she has tremendous patience working with her clients in this courting process.

Lenore counted up how many times she’s moved as an adult and it is 20 times. In fact, they just moved from the San Francisco Peninsula to North San Diego County to be closer to their kids, so the pain of moving is fresh. Lenore has a good idea what it is like to move from a familiar community into one where it is a challenge to find a bank, doctor, dentist, cleaner and hair dresser. She’s had to get rid of boxes from a large move, figure out where to put things ahead of the un-packers, and decorated multiple homes. She’s walked the walk, and talked the talk and knows first-hand what it is like to resettle.

Alex and Lenore live in San Marcos with their two cats, Boris & Natasha. They have 4 children (one daughter who lives in the bay area with her family, and 3 sons with one in Los Angeles, one in Santa Barbara and one in Costa Mesa).

Their motto is to “Making Your Real Estate Dreams a Reality!” and they mean that. Most real estate transactions have bumps along the way and it is their job to make sure things go smoothly. They like being a resource to their clients and take very good care of them. The relationships with their clients are like jewels – to be treasured and taken care of.

She is a member of:

  • NSDCAR – North San Diego County Association of Realtors
  • SAMCAR – The San Mateo County Association of Realtors
  • CAR – California Association of Realtors
  • NAR – National Association of Realtors

Lenore has earned the following designations with hundreds of hours of class work:

  • GRI:  Graduate Real Estate Institute
  • SRES:  Seniors Real Estate Specialist
  • SFR:  Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource
  • RCS-D:  Certified Real Estate-Divorce Specialist

Lenore has served on the board of directors of Career Closet of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, Peninsula Cantare, for six years and is the chair for SAMCAR Foundation.
