Client Testimonials

Out of all of my experiences working with realtors, dealing with Leslie was by far my most positive. Leslie not only knew my targeted geographic area, but understood my likes and dislikes within the properties I wanted to target. Establishing herself as my trusted advisor, her knowledge of the marketshift allowed me to acquire the estate of my choice at the lowest price point possible. Post-sale Leslie has continued to stay in touch to ensure I got what was promised. She has even made suggestions as to what she felt may have room for improvement. I can honestly say without Leslie, I would have spent more for something I wanted less. If all sales people had Leslie’s work ethic, buying things would be a whole lot easier.

Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Leslie. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the Boston area, though her particular expertise (and love!) is for homes in the Dorchester/Milton/South Shore area. Leslie is calm & confident, a masterful negotiator, and really takes the time to get to know your needs throughout both the buying and selling process. We always felt like we had an incredible advocate in her, and trusted her in what ended up being a long but ultimately successful selling & buying experience. Leslie pushed us when appropriate (we hemmed and hawed over properties and neighborhoods), offered insights and alternative viewpoints as we navigated exploring new neighborhoods and locations, as well as kept the house hunting process positive when things did not go our way. She is like a north star in the process — she helps you check and trust your gut and understand the bottom line — buying a home you will love and want to live in. Perhaps, most importantly, when we needed to move fast on a property, she was willing to work at all hours to set up inspections, review disclosures, sign paperwork – everything. Not only does Leslie know the market well, she knows about all of the ‘stuff’ that surrounds a home buying experience (contractors, local insider tips, etc!). She is just THE BEST to have on your team and a true professional. Working with Leslie is like gaining an incredibly thoughtful, smart, and savvy friend. I could not recommend her more highly.

Leslie is with no hesitation the best broker we ever worked with. From the very beginning she made the whole process of selling our condo seem very doable and easy. She took care of every single detail and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The condo got an offer within less than a week from the first OH. We have tenants leaving at the condo and she was great negotiating with them and making them feel cared for. We are very grateful and I will always call her if we ever think of buying or selling again. She is great for the neighborhood!
