We have been working with Leslie Dickinson as our real estate agent and are continually impressed with her work ethic, negotiating street smarts, and savvy tastes as our buyer’s agent. As a result of being a great listener and paying close attention to her client’s needs, Leslie has highly developed filters for what might resonate with us vs. what isn’t worth wasting time on. As the CEO of one of the biggest public sites on the internet, I especially value her ability to negotiate on our behalf, while carefully and tactfully maintaining our privacy with the selling party in a way that helps us to not lose leverage. Leslie works tirelessly, and always ‘over delivers’ with robust information about a property, it’s listing history, and potential for resale. She also gets high marks from us with regard to her open communication and ability to be in constant touch. Her ability to be highly responsive during tough periods of negotiation and counteroffering is also most impressive and has made the difference between getting the deal done vs. losing it. I want to make specific mention of Leslie’s integrity. She is someone whom we’ve trusted (and continue to trust) with highly confidential information. We have been highly impressed with her conduct and professionalism with regards to other outside parties. Lastly, I would be remiss if i didn’t mention that on a personal level Leslie is an absolute delight to work with. Her sense of humor, joie de vivre, and optimism are infectious, and for those things and the above, we value her tremendously.

Leslie is personable, knowledgeable and competent - understanding both the market and seller’s perspectives. As a client, we felt respected and valued, informed and updated on almost a daily basis. Leslie is thorough and conscientious, making sure that from start to finish, our best interests were a priority. Leslie goes the extra mile to make sure that in the end you are completely satisfied with the outcome. Consider Leslie as your agent of choice to buy or sell your home. We would use her again for any purchases or sales.

Leslie was hands-on and superior customer service from the minute I met her. I was extremely pleased with her persistence, personality and abilities. Great Job! Above and beyond the call of duty.

We have worked with Leslie twice over the last few years to both buy and sell our home and wouldn’t think of using anyone else if we come to do it again. As sellers, we needed the same experience so we turned again to Leslie and could not have been happier. Her knowledge of the market and perfectly executed strategy ensured we were able to extract maximum value from our house. Her guidance and insight throughout made the process simpler and less stressful for all. As both a buyer and seller, we have been blown away by Leslie’s, services. There is no better agent in the region. And above all, we got a good friend out of the process.

Leslie found our current home and sold our previous home and we couldn’t be happier. She kept us in the loop on upcoming listings that fit our specifics and in the end found us our dream home before it was on the market. She also was amazing in getting us ready to sell our previous home and was fantastic in helping us through the paperwork and all the details of getting ready to sell. She has got a great beat on what is out on the market as well as what is coming up. We’d definitely work with her again and have already recommended her to our friends.

My hope was to find a good fit with a real estate agent who would help me with the enormous decision of buying a home. Now that I have completed my home purchase with Leslie helping me on a daily basis for weeks through the search, offer, counteroffer, negotiations that follow and the mortgage process I know that she has the “right stuff”. If you are looking for an expert,
dedicated, highly available, caring person who will strive to know and understand your needs in a home, you can do no better than to work
with Leslie as your advocate. Would I recommend Leslie to a prospective client? Does she get results? Does she care about her clients? Yes, yes, and YES! I wish you the best of luck in your property search and I hope things turn out as well for you as they did for me.

Leslie did a terrific job. Her strategic guidance was excellent, she worked hard, and was very effective in achieving a prompt sale to a good buyer at a great price. All that, and a pleasure to work with too!
