I have worked with Leslie since 2004. She has helped us buy and sell several properties (houses and a lot) in Corolla and Duck, NC. Leslie is a first rate agent. She has a deep knowledge of the Outer Banks real estate market. Leslie's expertise and broad base of contacts in the Outer Banks real estate industry enables her clients to perfectly prepare properties for sale and to close transactions smoothly and quickly. Clients also benefit from Leslie's creative and effective marketing. I wholly endorse and recommend Leslie as a superior real estate agent in the Outer Banks. M. R.  Arlington, VA

 

We thought about looking for the perfect vacation home in OBX after vacationing in there 3 years ago! We don't live locally (3 hrs or less); we live in PA which made house hunting really difficult, so we thought........Leslie has impressive local knowledge of the OBX, she was never pushy and was very patient during our search, no matter how many times we needed to see a house. Once we finally found "the" house, Leslie helped us negotiate to the price point we were willing to go. Since we are located remotely, Leslie handled almost everything for us....all we had to do was pretty much give our OK. The closing process was almost flawless, it was much easier to close remotely with Leslie's help than it was to close locally at our primary home. Leslie was very responsive, in fact she took our phone calls way after business hours, I think one of them was at 10:00PM (sorry about that). If your are looking to buy a home in the OBX we would definitely recommend Leslie! J.G. PA

 

 

It has been a pleasure building a solid professional relationship with Leslie over the last 6 years. It was great teaming with her when we decided to invest in the Outer Banks as her expertise led us to a very lucrative property that we currently own. Leslie is extremely knowledgeable of the local market including specifics on individual properties, beach communities, local players and vendors, as well as area trends -- all necessary to make an informed purchase decision and to ensure that the transaction process goes smoothly. She is also very competent with numbers and backs up all of her recommendations with numerical analyses, which is particularly important in the investment arena. Leslie is friendly, responsive, and also very patient as it took many rounds over a number of years to secure just the right property. Even post-sale, Leslie still provides us up-to-the-minute market information applicable to our investment and we're looking forward to continuing to work with her on future transactions over the coming years.

Leslie was always available, very patient, never pushy, and would and will use her again. Have a couple of friends who have also had the pleasure of working with her. She always knew the history on all the properties that we looked at, and I believe she really has a passion for her work. J.H. Elizabeth City, NC

 

I recently sold a property in the OBX and Leslie was such a great realtor to work with. Her knowledge and expertise in real estate and the area, along with marketing the property, legal documents and finance made the sales process easier. If you are trying to sell or purchase, definitely contact her. J.E. Virginia Beach, VA

 

Leslie has stuck with me over a long search process for a second home and for various investments. She is responsive,knowledgeable, pleasant and honest. Our communication continues to this day. Look no further for a partner in your search for a beach house. T. D. Medford, NJ

 

Leslie worked with us to find the perfect vacation/investment home in the Outer Banks. Her knowledge of the local real estate market is fantastic, including what to look for in an investment home and what each of the different areas in the Outer Banks has to offer. In addition, she is familiar with many of the rental management companies, their strengths and weaknesses and which ones are strongest in particular areas. On top of her vast knowledge of the real estate market, what really sets Leslie apart is that she truly loves what she does and brings a fun and energetic approach to the whole process. There is no one else I would go to for assistance in finding or selling a home in the Outer Banks. C.B. Virginia

 

My husband and I love the Outer Banks and want to move/retire down there and put a plan in place to make it happen. Even though buying our home is a couple years out, Leslie stays in communication, sends information, keeps us abreast with what's available and reaches out about our progress (that motivate me to keep running my business on days I don't feel like it.) Knowing there is somebody I can trust when it comes time to make our purchase let's me focus on doing what I need to do make this happen. A. R. Cleveland, OH

 

I have been communicating with Leslie on Outer Banks real estate opportunities in recent years. Leslie, has extensive knowledge of the marketplace, provides invaluable property information on new opportunities, and is prompt and courteous in her efforts. I encourage anyone looking to pursue Outer Banks opportunities to work with Leslie. N.B York, PA

 

Leslie did a fantastic job finding the perfect home for me in Corolla, NC!! We had worked together for over a year mostly just online reviewing listings. I had one other trip to view homes that didn't result in one that I liked, but at least it planted the seed in her mind for what I was mostly interested in. When this home became available she immediately contacted me, told me that she thought I'd love it, asked me to come down asap to see it, and the rest is history. Leslie was very personable, attentive, answered my numerous questions, guided me throughout a somewhat difficult short sale process, and a real pleasure to work with. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Leslie as a terrific agent to work with in buying a home. D.W. Shamokin Dam, PA
