Liz Bourneuf

Buyer's Agent

Liz Bourneuf

Buying her first home with her husband in Seattle ignited Liz’s interest in real estate. Shortly after moving back to LA, Liz began her career at Coldwell Banker, before meeting Tami Pardee through mutual friends.

She loves the Halton Pardee + Partners family and enjoys going to work every day. Meeting new people and helping clients find the right house to call home is her passion. Her client dedication and love of helping others are what motivate her most.

Naturally, Liz loves the subject of architecture, especially the designs of mid-century modern icon Frank Lloyd Wright. Raised in Ohio, Liz graduated from Ohio State University and remains a loyal fan of the college football team (GO Bucks!). In her free time, Liz is busy baking, reading, and exercising. As a long-time Venice beach resident, she, her husband and their two beautiful children enjoy the beach and great weather all year long.

Katie, Courtney, Liz and the rest of the team at Pardee Properties were incredibly helpful during our search for a home in Venice. Their knowledge of the market…and their expertise and resources helped us find our dream home and ensured that our offer stood out in a competitive market. They really are the best at what they do. If you're looking to buy or sell in Venice, there is no question that I would recommend Pardee Properties!

We had a great experience with the sale of our condo with Halton Pardee but chose to work with another agent since we were moving away from the…Westside. After a horrible experience with an agent who specialized in mid-city properties, we went back to Pardee for help and were introduced to Liz Bourneuf. Liz helped us find a dream home after a long search with a lot of ups and downs. She was always available and patiently walked us through the process and helped negotiate repairs that allowed us to purchase a home in our price range. She also worked tirelessly to help with a squatter situation so we could move in on time. We're so thankful for all her help and whole-heartedly recommend Pardee for both buying and selling. They're the best!

We moved from NYC to LA in November. While we were waiting on our apartment to finish construction we rented a furnished home. Two weeks before we were…due to move in there was a 4 months delay. Meredith Gruszka, Liz Bourneuf, and the leasing team came to our rescue and within 10 working business days found us our dream home that far exceeded our expectation. These two were helpful not only in the search but also ensured we got transitioned with every aspect of the move. We are beyond thankful for the professionalism and personalization that went into helping us find a house to call a home in Venice. I would recommend working with Halton and Pardee + Partners for anyone moving or relocating to or in LA. They truly took the guess work out of it for us. Customer for life! Thank you Meredith and Liz, and everyone else involved!!! Meg

My experience working with Liz Bourneuf at Halton Pardee + Partners buying my first home in Los Angeles was exceptional. Liz is a savvy agent whose intelligence and…passion for the market is only matched by her grace, diligence and poise maneuvering through the daunting and tedious hurdles of buying a property. As a new buyer, my lack of experience meant I needed someone who understood my my wants, needs, finances, and help me navigate through the countless details in the fine print of home ownership. I'd heard horror stories about buying a house in Los Angeles. Real estate prices keep climbing and unless you have 1 mil in cash to burn in order to compete in this market, it’s overwhelming. Liz went to work and immediately I was wildly impressed and made more at ease. I've broken down the following most important aspects to consider when buying a home and why Liz was exceptionally informative and helpful. The Market Liz knows this market inside and out. I think the reason she's so good at what she does is because she is passionate about understanding not only the market, but every single detail regarding owning a home: From the upkeep, to the neighborhoods, to the sentimentality and beauty of home ownership. I think she may even read whatever books are out there regarding the market, architecture, environment, school systems, sanitation systems, commute times, etc etc etc... Because damn this woman knows what she's doing. Location I didn't know exactly where or what I wanted to buy, but Liz was up for the challenge. She was diligent when researching properties I threw her way. Initially I wanted to buy a condo in the Marina or the Westside. Liz showed me several right off the bat. Soon it became clear to me that I wanted to buy a house. We stayed on the Westside and stumbled into a neighborhood 20 minutes from the beach called View Heights. The houses were beautiful and well maintained, the neighborhood was quiet, and the commute anywhere in LA was easy because it was so central. Also, it was clear it’s an area on the rise which is important because you want to make a smart investment as well as find a home. Invaluable insight During each visit, Liz was honest and shared her opinion and the facts surrounding the property. This was really helpful because as she has great taste and knowledge, I trust her instincts. Which to buy: House or condo? At some point we discussed what I really wanted in a home and she urged me to open up my scope and look at houses. That seemed like a huge commitment for a single woman. Nevertheless, Liz rallied together another dozen houses to check out in the Culver and West Adams area's. When you find your dream home... Initially, I was interested in a pricey little property in Mar Vista. It's a hot area and the house was lovely, but tiiiiiny. We decided it wasn't a good fit and a few days later visited a larger property that had been flipped - A beautiful grey house on a corner lot, 3 beds, 2 baths, with an immaculate layout, a 2 car garage, and an exquisite backyard and patio. We drove up and I could tell it was a hot property - Agents were outside with other clients, the house was open and breezy. The neighborhood was peaceful. The price was great. Liz has an amazing way of professionalism that is unmatched. She was cool, collected, and focused on our bid. When I say "our" I mean it. She was so involved and so dedicated, I started to refer to our little team as a "we think" and "our offer". It's like being on a sports team and really feeling supported and backed up by your teammate. Making an offer LA is a hard buyer's market because property is so in demand and inventory is very low. That said, Liz was brilliant and aggressive when making an offer. Lucky for me, that offer won! I had my first dream home. The End Result Because of Liz's dedication, thoroughness, and thoughtfulness, I am proud to say I live in my Los Angeles dream home and have a dog who loves to run around in my backyard. If happiness is measured in a home which leads you to a better quality of life, you could say because of Liz, I am the happiest I've been. I ABSOLUTELY recommend Liz Bourneuf and Halton Pardee + Partners if you're interested in buying a house in Los Angeles and would like to work with a dedicated, diligent, thorough, committed, patient and winning buyers agent! If you want to buy a property in Los Angeles but you don't really know what you’re doing, but you want a place to find sanctuary and build a lifestyle within the scope of whatever budget you're working with, GO WITH LIZ! If you would like more information about Liz Bourneuf and Halton Pardee + Partners and I could be of any assistance in further informing you on my recommendation for her as an agent, please feel free to reach out to me. I promise you, she is every bit as smart as she is wise and nurturing in what could be a very tedious process.
