What do Clients Say?

Excellent one stop do it all realtor! Lesley has a vast knowledge of the area, construction, flood levels, etc. We were out of state buyers and she made sure we made a sound decision. She is not overbearing but instead educated us on differences we may not have known about the locality. She went above and beyond with insurance quotes, repair estimates, and lender selections. She worked with all of these folks to make sure all was done. I cannot recommend her enough! Superstar Realtor!

Luxury Buyer on Rate My Agent

We were interested in purchasing a home in Punta Gorda but lived out of state. The current market made it seem impossible to pull off until we contacted Lesley. She walked us through the process. At each step she contacted the service providers we needed. For example, what does insurance cost on a particular home? In 24 hrs. Lesley had us three quotes. She also had the contacts to get quotes and ultimately service providers to fix the issues from the home inspection report. She stayed in close contact with us and ALWAYS returned calls immediately. I didn't have to research anything. I forwarded all my questions to her and she found the answers. It took most of the stress out of the process. She even follows up with you after the closing to continue making the transition to the area an easier process. I feel she definitely earned her money.

Luxury Buyer on Rate My Agent

By far the best realtor! I have dabbled with real estate strictly as a consumer and have never met a realtor like Lesley. She was referred by a friend and I am so grateful for that. I cannot say enough to express how great she is! Buying property in a different state is difficult but Lesley made the process easy! I will always be forever grateful for her! I could list the reasons why but no need it was everything about the process. I looked at 11 properties in 2 days, it was a marathon but the end result I now have a beautiful home in Fla because of her and super happy
