For my husband and me, Leslie Hogan of Hogan Associates (hoganassociatesRE.com) personified the three most important attributes in buying and selling a home – knowledge, competence, and professionalism.
Her knowledge of the real estate market in the greater Providence and Newport County areas ensured us that she would search and access the properties that suited not only our specific tastes and needs but also our budget. Even more so, she explored alternative opportunities such as buying property and/or building a home. Because of her background and experience, she was able to connect us with the “right” people to explore such options.
Secondly, Leslie Hogan demonstrated her skill as a marketer, negotiator, and closer of deals. In a span of twelve months, she was able to schedule viewings of multiple properties in various locations – all of which were in alignment with our stated needs and budget. In addition, she arranged for us to see “new” properties in their initial stages of development for comparison. What was most impressive was Leslie Hogan’s ability to ask the right questions of us and to guide us from start to finish in making a decision to sell our home in one state and buy a home in another – a major move and lifestyle change!
Lastly, Leslie Hogan is the personification of professionalism. Her demeanor, attitude and style bespeaks an individual who has years of experience in meeting with and learning about people and in helping people clarify and prioritize what they want and then, moving them in the right direction for shopping for a home and making a significant life decision.
At this time my husband and I have moved into the “perfect” home for this transition stage in our life. I can think of no other realtor with whom we have worked previously that possesses the combination of knowledge, competence and professionalism of a Leslie Hogan of Hogan Associates Real Estate. I would trust her to achieve similarly with any individual, couple, or family in looking to sell or buy a home or property. For us Leslie Hogan represents the Gold Standard of Realtors.
