“Leslie is tremendously good and focused. She is one of the first agents we have worked with (and we've worked with a ton) who really LISTENS to what the client wants and then rethinks her offerings to meet client objectives. It was great pleasure working with her!”

Regardless of whether I am working with buyers or sellers, I believe in an honest approach. For buyers, I will find you the right home in the right neighborhood that will be perfect for your needs. If you don't love where you live, then I haven't done my job. For sellers, I will make the experience as seamless and painless as possible. I understand that buying and selling a home is one of the most stressful and emotional experiences anyone can go through, and it is my goal to guide you through the process with honesty, integrity, insight, professionalism, and enthusiasm. The greatest reward I receive as a real estate consultant is the referral and repeat clients who represent the majority of my business.
