I was born and raised in Fergus Falls, spending my summers at Pickerel Lake in Otter Tail County. Most of my large extended family lives in Fergus Falls and my ties to this amazing community run deep. Within my first year of real estate career, I hit my goal of being a million dollar producer and by my fifth year my sales hit the 6.5 million mark. I attribute my quick ascent to becoming a top producer in the area to an old-fashioned worth ethic instilled in me by my grandmother at a very early age.
I got my professional start in education and marketing which formed my core strengths areas: my negotiating skills, my networking, and my ability to listen carefully to the wants, needs and concerns of my clients as well as communicating every step of all transactions.
I am fiercely loyal to my clients, working tirelessly to ensure the most positive outcome. One of my clients stated it perfectly, “You are a real estate agent that cares; you take care of the people that list with you and you’re not out simply for the dollar." When listing a home, effective marketing is crucial, and my social media marketing is unique and brings results. I am a firm believer in presenting an unforgettable first impression. With 98% of people taking their first view of a home on the internet, professional staging, photography and videography are key components of my listing package.
When working for a buyer, I am thrilled knowing I have helped the client find just the right house to become their home--the place where amazing memories start. A former client says, “Leslie went way beyond the second mile to sell our home in a difficult market and we were able to realize a lifetime dream of buying a home on the water.”
Gregarious by nature, I really enjoy networking and spend my “spare” time volunteering on various local community boards, such as the YMCA, the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center and I have also coordinated the AAUW’s tour of homes. On the state level, I serve on the Minnesota Association of Realtors Forms Committee. I am the recipient of numerous real estate awards for my outstanding service and sales record.
