After renting together for nearly 10 years, my partner and I decided it was time to purchase a home together. Leslie was referred by friends who had utilized her expertise.
Right from the start, she was extremely proficient and patient with us. We looked at many areas including Edgewater, Clifton Historic Neighborhood and West Park seeing 5-6 houses a day. Leslie was very flexible with our schedules. Once we found the home on West Blvd., she encouraged us to act quickly. We submitted our offer that evening and it was accepted the next day!
Leslie helped us to keep our patience as we continued through the banking and underwriting process which can be quite frustrating. Upon word we were ready to close our transaction, Leslie met with us and helped guide us through the enormous amount of paperwork. She never left our side and even assisted the next day in dealing with a glitch with the title company.
We cannot tell you enough how grateful we are to Leslie. In the beginning we started with a real estate agent. At the ending we had made a great new friend. As we continue to plan our future and talk about purchasing rental property, we know it will be with Leslie again. Simply put, it's her personal care that makes her different from many of the other big brands. We highly recommend her!
Leslie made our home buying and selling experience wonderful. This is the second time we have sold a home and the third time we have bought a home. Previous times we went with a large real estate company and each time we felt lost in the shuffle. We met Leslie while viewing a home she had listed in Olmsted Falls. We immediately appreciated her professionalism, passion for real estate and her eye for home décor and staging. Even though we did not place a bid on that property, we knew we wanted Leslie to represent our home in Strongsville and our interests. The first time she entered our home she not only gave us positive feedback on our house, but also offered creative and cost effective ideas to improve our home's chances of selling. Within the first month we had 25 showings and an open house. Her persistence, fantastic photos of our home, and relationship with other realtors made our home attractive to buyers and agents alike. We got an offer in a short period of time that was equitable for us. Leslie represented us every step of the way including through the stressful time of closing and moving. She was in constant communication with us and empathized with our stress levels. She never made us feel like we were pressuring or annoying. Leslie answered every question we had and even ones we didn't know we should have. We wholeheartedly recommend Leslie. Home buying will be stressful, yet it should be fun and exciting, too!
