My husband and I had been searching for the perfect piece of property in Hampstead for several years. We live out of state so our search was limited to the times we visited. Friends called to tell us of a piece of property they found the day after we had returned home. We searched on-line and found the listing. It was Easter Sunday and there was a chat link. I was hesitant being that it was a holiday but I clicked on the link not expecting anyone to answer. Jeff answered in 5 minutes! He handled everything and was always available. After the sale I emailed Jeff asking for recommendation for a builder. He got back to me right away and after a year and a half still checks in with us! Jeff is awesome!

Jeff helped me purchase my first home, he was very responsive to my emails, always available for multiple viewings, took care of all the details and made sure I was aware/informed of each step in the process.

Bought a home in 2014.

We've been working with Jeff to find a home in Wilmington for our growing family. We have been extremely impressed with him in all regards. He is very knowledgeable of the local market and options, and it took him no time to pinpoint exactly what we wanted (before we did). He is also very courteous and down-to-earth, and he uses a no-pressure approach. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Wilmington area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Wilmington, NC.

My husband and I were so lucky Jeff was on duty when we randomly stopped by a Century 21. We were both very critical of realtors due to past experiences with them, but Jeff crushed our preconceptions to pieces. He's super knowledgeable of the market and was very upfront and honest when setting expectations for us,and we never felt pressured or ignored. When my husband had to leave town for work, Jeff accommodated by taking videos of the houses we looked at so he could see them too. Despite a tight time frame, Jeff found us the perfect first home for a great price... we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a realtor in this area, you will not be disappointed. I just hope he's still here the next time we're in the market!

Bought a home in 2013 in Myrtle Grove Junction, Silver Lake, NC 28412.

My husband and I recently used Jeff to purchase a new home in Wilmington. We began our search with a new construction neighborhood and floor plan in mind. We viewed a handful of homes on the market in hopes that we may find something already constructed. While we did not find anything on the market that we were interested in, the process showed us that Jeff really takes the time to figure out what you want and to understand what features/locations are most important. When he then suggested we look at another new construction neighborhood that he thought we would like - we took his opinion seriously and viewed the neighborhood and some floor plans.....and he was right - we ended up under contract in the neighborhood within a week.

Jeff went above and beyond throughout the process - from getting us under contract with additional incentives (beyond what the builder was advertising), to staying on top of the sellers agent to keep things moving. He is extremely responsive - most times answering emails, texts, or phone calls within minutes. I never waited more than an hour for a response when trying to contact him. He is ALWAYS working!

Our biggest compliment to Jeff is that he extends his service until you are completely happy - not just until he gets his check. We had several outstanding issues with the builder of our home for more than a month after closing and Jeff's attentiveness, responsiveness, and motivation to get us what we wanted was the same after closing as before. My husband and I joke that we made him work harder after closing than we did before!

If we are ever in need of a realtor in the future, he is the only person we will use. I would refer him hands-down to anyone that asks.

Showed home in 2013 in Wilmington, NC.

I have lived in Wilmington since 1997, and have dealt with most agencies in town. In fact, I had constant dealing with various realtors between 2006 and 2012. In 2013, I met Jeff Lesley.

What impressed me most about Jeff was his professionalism, knowledge of the market, and the fact that he wasnt pushing me to buy. In fact, in many instances I found myself asking his opinion of the property, and often he would say it was over-priced, or if looking at an investment, would recommend against if he thought it wouldnt cash flow or if the location or layout of the property would make renting a challenge. I learned Jeff has a degree in finance, and an MBA. He runs his real estate desk as a business, and his customer service is fantastic.

Jeff was always available for me, and although I know he has many clients at any one time, I felt very important to him. I have since referred friends, family, and colleagues.

Jeff will be the only realtor I ever use to purchase a home. When I list my home, I will use Jeff over any others, as his assistant (who is awesome too by the way) is also a professional photographer. My home will be well-marketed when I sell. I have referred friends, colleagues, physicians moving to town, and I would recommend meeting with Jeff before using any other realtor.

Finally, I did not know Jeff prior to being referred by another realtor this year. I own a business dealing wth physicians and hospitals. I couldnt reccomend someone more highly, and in fact tried to hire Jeff to work in my business full-time. You will not be disappointed.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Wilmington, NC.

Jeff helped me and my husband sell our home after trying fsbo and thru another agent. He brought us every offer for our consideration and advised us when we asked for it. He was thorough and diligent- he made us feel like we were his most important clients. We would definitely use him again for our future real estate needs and recommend home highly to others!

Jeff was a fantastic realtor! He knew the area very well, was extremely helpful and knowledgable, proactive in communication, and very responsive to my questions. When working through final negotiations, he worked with me during the process and provided excellent advice and support. I would highly recommend him!

Bought a home in 2013 in Brown Town, NC 28443.

I was dreading the idea of looking at a house through a real estate agent because they are just interested in making money not your best interest. Then I met Jeff Lesley. What a breath of fresh air. Jeff was not pushy, honest and made me feel as if I was the only client he had. He had my best interest at heart and not just making a sell to put more bling in his pocket. I would recommend him to help you in purchasing a new or used home in a heart beat. He still calls to check to see how things are going since I purchased my home 6 months ago and to let me know that he is there if I need him. WOW!!!!! An agent can't get any better than that. I feel very fortunate to have him on my side.
