    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Mcminnville, OR.

    I have worked with Lea on 3 home purchases and two home sales. She is the best! Her attention to detail and overall customer service is outstanding. She has an incredible wealth of knowledge from her many years in the industry. I would not put my trust in anyone else.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Rainier, OR.

    Lea was amazing! She stepped us through the entire process on our new home and we couldn't be any more pleased! Her assistance in finding our new dream home was invaluable. She always responded to our questions right away and never kept us in the dark about anything. Her knowledge of the local area is especially helpful. We don't plan to buy or sell again any time soon, but if/when we ever do, she will be the first agent we call!  More Less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Saint Helens, OR.

    Working with Lea was a great experience for my husband and I. We had just been going through a nightmare of an experience selling our home in a different county and city. We were staying with my parents in St.Helens and ready to start house shopping to find a home for my husband and I along with our two young kids in the area. Our previous relator and seller of our home was not knowledgeable in the new area so we decided to "interview" realtors in the area and pick one to work with. We asked friend and family and heard many good reviews about Lea. So we invited her over to discuss the next step, we had already had a lender and were pre-approved. But we were not sure if we wanted to get a manufactured home, build, or just do a standard home purchase. Talking with Lea was very comfortable for my husband and I, she was very understanding of your previous situation and the stress we were under. She gave us a ton of insight and was able to help us narrow in on what would be best for us, thinking and telling us things did not know about and had not thought of. She was considerate and worked with our busy schedules, me being a daycare provider and my husband a construction foreman. She didn't seem to mind taking my mom and I to preview homes, then another trip with my husband and sometimes on the ones we were really interested my two sisters also! I really valued her opinion and out look on the homes we looked at. She was careful to give a little but no too much so we were able to really form our own opinion. She is a great listener, kind, caring and it truly shows when working with her that what is most important to her is what is best for you. After months of shopping, one home we were out bid, another had issues found in inspection and our third and final is the place that is Best suited for our family! She was great at keeping us positive and having a good out look. I believe it to be true that everything happens for a reason. We couldn't be happier in the house we found to call home. All thanks to Lea, her time, patience and our best interest at heart.  More Less
