Ratings & Reviews

Leslie was amazing to work during the home buying process. She was extremely patient with us as we kept changing location between VA/MD/close to the city/far away from the city etc. She was always available no matter what time (me landing from a flight at 8:30 PM and her coming to meet us at a house) and was truly the best negotiator. We won a house over an all cash offer, when does that happen!?

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Kensington, MD.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Leslie on our most recent rental. We have a growing family and needed some space. After conducting a search on our own, we were lucky enough to link up with Leslie. She made the process incredibly quick and easy...which is just what we needed. She was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond our expectations. Not only did she "wow" us through the rental process, she also offered continued support beyond that through the first couple months. I imagine if we need anything in the future, she would be happy to help as well... seems to be her approach. I would without a doubt recommend working with Leslie and her team.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Ashburn, VA.

We've now used Leslie to help us find two rentals, and she has been an incredible help both times! She is very responsive and easy to get in touch with, answered all our questions, and really worked with us to find a place that would suit our specific needs. She was also a great resource to have on our side when we had to deal with a pushy apartment representative! Her input and opinions while looking at places were also very valuable, and she even helped considerably to smooth out the transition & paperwork to get the new lease signed. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for help finding a rental in the NOVA area!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Cleveland Park, Washington, DC.

Leslie was very easy to work with and always made time to either look at a condo or talk about one on the market. While it took us longer then expected to find the place we were really looking for, she was optimistic throughout the entire process. We ended up finding the perfect place right in Cleveland Park, the neighborhood we were set on owning in.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Columbia Heights West, Arlington, VA.

Leslie was a pleasure to work with and top-notch all around! As a first time buyer, I had little knowledge of the home buying process, other than the little online research I had conducted and Leslie was there through every step to help fill in the blanks. Her knowledge was fantastic and she made herself available to me at any time for any question, no matter how basic. Leslie's experience made the home buying process as simple and painless as possible. I love my new home. Thank you Leslie!

Bought a home in 2014 in Twin Brook, Rockville, MD 20851.

As first time home buyers we had a lot to learn throughout the process of buying a home and Leslie was there for all of it. She took us to see a handful of houses every week or weekend for a few months until we found something that met our needs. She made herself very available and was incredibly responsive at all hours, answering our multitude of questions.

The selling agent was more than a bit unresponsive but Leslie did a fantastic job staying on top of them and making sure that we negotiated the best deal possible.

I would definitely recommend Leslie as she is 100% honest in the search process (she won't try and sell you on a home that is not right for you) and is very attune to your needs as a buyer. She flat out told us when a house not perfect for us and I loved that about her. Thanks for all the help Leslie!

Helped me rent a home in Highlands of Darnestown, MD 20874.

Leslie came out to help us on very little notice and, WOW, did she help. We had only a short time to find a rental and she went out of her way to help us find everything that might fit our needs and worked out some agency problems - all within 48 hours! Then she helped so much as we moved in from out of state with info, advice and just plain HELP when it was needed. And all we did was find a rental. She gives 110% 24/7. You won't find better.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Landover, MD.

Leslie has been working with me for the past nine months, helping me turn my home ownership dream into a reality. We've been through quite a few different hurdles in my pursuit, but she's always been there for me whenever I had a concern.

Now, I'm two weeks from closing on my first home. With Leslie's knowledge and expertise, I've got a great deal on a very nice home, and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Leslie!

This was most certainly a difficult task but at the end of the day you are getting a great deal on a beautiful new home, I cannot wait for the house warming!!! Yay!

Bought a home in 2014.

Let me just start with a question: Is there someone better, more knowledgeable, kind, nice, experienced, go-getter (the list goes on) than Leslie? the answer is: NO!

Not only Leslie helped us find the perfect home for our family, but she also put us in contact with the right people to make the purchase a reality when some other doors were being shut. I must say that we found an agent for life. I can't thank you enough Leslie :)

Thank you for making our dream come true :)

Mathias!! So happy for you, Maria, and Isabella! We definitely did our due diligence at making sure that we saw enough homes to find the one that was the ONE for you! Think back to that first house on Yellow Leaf -- it does not even BEGIN to compare to the amazing home that you have now! All of you (esp Maria's madre, jajaja) were such an amazing pleasure to work with to the point that I never felt that I was "working," it was more like I was showing homes to friends, which of course you are now to me forever! Talk soon and I can't wait for one of your BBQ's!
