Ratings & Reviews

Leslie is the BEST, especially for first time homebuyers. She not only helps you find a house, but teaches you about the process, about what owning a home requires, and even gives ideas for what you could do to improve the house. She is an amazing negotiator, and she is highly involved throughout the entire process. It feels as if she is buying the house with you. I can't praise her enough, nor thank her enough. We'll be her customers for life. She's earned our business several times over.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Strathmore, Syracuse, NY.

My wife and I worked with Leslie this past year (2014). She is very honest and upfront. She did not try to sell us anything she knew we wouldn’t like. Leslie was also personable. She made the experience enjoyable. In fact, there were several times when we were all laughing thanks to her. I Leslie is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with!

My husband and I worked with Leslie to find a house recently. Leslie was such a pleasure to work with. She was fun, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Whenever we had a question, she always got back to us immediately. It was so nice to be able to trust her with our needs and she helped us find our dream house! She was able to help us navigate through some tricky negotiations. I highly recommend Leslie!

Sold a home in 2013 in Elmcrest, NY 13090.

I cannot say enough good things about Leslie! She was a fantastic agent & made our buying (and selling) experience such a positive one, even though we were in PA at the time. She is an honest and straightforward person and we highly recommend her for all of your buying/selling needs. We owe her many thanks for helping us through such an intimidating process.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Syracuse, NY.

For: Leslie Watkin Schoen, R.E. Agent

Selling my property was a tough issue during a very down market. Leslie Schoen stuck with me until the closing and helped me sell my house in a manner head and shoulders above, and more than any other agent would have.

Of course a Real Estate Agent cannot fabricate a buyer, but can only create an invitation to make the property as attractive as possible. She helped me understand that potential buyers cannot clearly see past certain cosmetic changes which may be needed. I made changes as she recommended and potential buyers were no longer distracted by superficial appearances while they admired the better qualities of my property.

Leslie also made special efforts to hold an open-house; not just once or twice, but time and time again as if she were personally involved and cared about the property being sold. Potential buyers came but because of the nature of the market it took time until offers finally materialized.

I have to confess I did have a separate Property Manager. My reasoning was a Manager would facilitate showing the house because I had moved a long distance away from the property. Regardless of my absence Leslie Schoen maintained active and frequent communications with me about difficulties which arose.

Clearly Leslie helped me in making the correct decision concerning the Property Manager and once this individual was removed, showing the house became much easier. I cannot give adequate praise to Ms. Schoen for sticking with me through these difficulties. I suspect other agents might have quit on me in frustration.

When an offer was finally received, there were two at the same time. Leslie helped in deciding which was the most reliable for consummating a sale. She was prompt with transmitting required documents, coordinated often with my Attorney on necessary issues, and reassured the buyer’s agent by actively responding to their needs and inquiries. When hand-holding was needed, she was there to walk through the process. I never felt like I was alone in the matter.

Once a buyer had been selected and the final process was underway, Leslie still remained close with me for final issues which arose. She helped me find laborers for a sweep-through of the house and disposition of some residual materials which needed to be cleared before the final closing. Ms. Schoen was concerned about details even until the day before the signing of the papers. I was never alone.

I truly wish I could have sold the house for more, not just because I wanted the most for my investment, but because I felt my Real Estate Agent, Leslie Schoen had really earned a larger commission than what I had signed up for. I can’t imagine any other agent sticking with me through thick and thin in the manner she did.

Thank you, Leslie Schoen, Real Estate Agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Sedgewick, Syracuse, NY.

My husband and I had a great experience using Leslie as our realtor. We were moving across the country and we didn't have a lot of time to spend looking for a home before my husband started his new job. Leslie organized house showings based on our criteria, and we found our house the second day. She listened and understood our needs, which made the big move so much easier! Plus, she shared her wealth of knowledge of the area which was very much appreciated.

Found a tenant for a home in Far West-Side, Syracuse, NY 13204.

Leslie is very knowledge about people and real estate. She is very experienced and gets right down to business. Also, she is a nice person who is willing to go the extra mile. She was one step ahead of me in knowing what to ask, what to look for, and how to size up a home. I will go back to her next time I'm looking for a place. Highly recommended.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Eastwood, Syracuse, NY.

Absoluteley the best experience we could have had. Between the negotiations and the switching of loans from VA loan to FHA and back to the VA loan, the patience was invaulable. I would and will recommend anyone I know to her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Liverpool, NY.

This was my daughter's first home purchase and Leslie provided her with continuous guidance and compassion. Her questions were answered and Leslie stayed connected from the beginning to the closing.

Bought a home in 2013 in Salina, NY 13088.

This was my first time buying a home and Leslie was wonderful with answering any and all of my questions, no matter how silly I thought they were. She was patient and always made herself available whenever I needed something. When I did find the house that I wanted she was extremely helpful with the negotiating process. I am very happy that I had Leslie during this process and highly recommend her.
