Leslie was fantastic! During a spell where there was a severe stress on inventories, she helped us to frame a proper bid that was not overly indulgent and would thus not become a problem during appraisal, yet aggressive enough to ensure that we closed on the property (we were the first bidders among five total by the end of the first day the property went up for sale). The property has continued to rise in value, and we feel very good about our purchase price. She was also extremely organized and informed. As needed, she appropriately pressed our mortgage broker to ensure he expedited transactions in a timely manner (as he was out-of-state, he was unaware of how fast things moved in our area, and she kept his feet to the fire for us in a professional and diplomatic way). She also lined up a number of comparable homes in very short order (with little notice from me), and drove me around to see them. This helped immensely in allowing me to cement my decision to commit to the purchase. In a phrase, she's top notch! If you're able to work w/her, do so.
