Clients are saying:



"Leah was amazing and made this my first purchasing experience a breeze. From keeping me up to date up to the point of signing the paper work to informing me of matters I knew nothing about since it was my first time buying. She was wonderful through it all. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone as well as be using her once again."



"Leah was the best! She was super helpful providing information on the neighborhood and upcoming trends, and it was also great having her perspective on the different units we looked at. She encouraged me to go with my gut and what I really liked, which was always helpful to hear while making a difficult and important decision. She also came up with creative and effective negotiating tactics when I found the unit I really wanted, which helped expedite the process. I would highly recommend that anyone work with Leah!"



"I worked with Leah on both buying and selling my properties and I can't recommend her enough.

In the selling process, she was prepared with the full comps, all of the information regarding the actual process, and could answer all of my questions. She was very honest with me when it came to feedback on what I needed to do to make my place more presentable. Throughout the sales process, she made herself or her team available for multiple open houses, she gave me 24-hour notice of any showings since I work from home and she made sure to also look after my cat during the times. Through each showing, she asked for and got detailed feedback that allowed me to declutter and drop the price. From that, she personally contacted everyone who came through with the right message and that is how I found my buyer. While it was a tough negotiation, she gave me her expert opinion and calmed me down when I didn't understand. During the final days, she even found me a handyman to take care of the last minute items I needed to get done in my property.

On the buying side, Leah was great. While I focused on feelings and what I liked, she would point out practical issues in terms of space, stains, tile, etc. She was able to see the houses for what they were and help me with the negotiations. She was there working with the realtors and making sure I got a fair price but also one that would ensure that I "won" the bid. She helped me negotiate the timing for a closing date so that I would also not lose money as I was trying to sell my other place.

I have a demanding job where I travel a lot and Leah was there for me every step of the way. She is an outstanding realtor and I can't recommend her enough."



"Leah was very helpful in guiding me around the area and showing me places to look at. The process was smooth and I had no problems finding a great apartment."



"Leah was absolutely amazing with helping me get my condo rented. After another agent had it listed for three months and zero results, Leah was able to get it rented in two weeks at the end of December!! A very difficult task! She's is great with communication and very responsive, I would definitely recommend her!"
