Leigh Burns was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. Leigh always responded promptly and never left any questions unanswered. I would highly recommend her. You will receive the best service any agent can provide. I know from experience as we were able to sell our home at the price we wanted. Emily Hill
Having bought and sold 4 homes, leased a home for 3 years and thus, worked with 7 agents in these capacities, I’ve had extensive personal experience working with residential real estate agents. As the owner of an international negotiation consulting firm, I have also had the privilege of training and consulting agents at some of the largest residential and commercial real estate firms in the country. Because of these combined experiences, I am extremely knowledgeable about the roles that agents play and how they can both help and hinder in the marketing and sale of your home or investment property.
Typically I need to manage my agents to get the best out of them (even when they have my best interest at heart) - educating them about my properties value proposition, only sharing information I want conveyed to the other party, and managing the negotiation process myself. I needed to do none of these things with Leigh Burns, instead trusting her with every aspect of the sale of my home. I have never met an agent who I trusted or relied on more.
Leigh offered and successfully managed not only the marketing and sale of my home (which sold for full price quickly), but also managed all of the work needed to prepare my home for sale. More remarkable, Leigh accomplished this while pregnant with and after giving birth to her third child. Who does that - no agent in my experience or to my knowledge has ever gone so above and beyond her job description to help a client. As a result, she not only earned my full trust, she earned my gratitude and loyalty for life.
I will never recommend anyone for the sale or purchase of your next home with a stronger recommendation than I’m giving Leigh. Her youth should not be confused with her extensive knowledge, savvy decision-making ability, decisive nature, tenacity, or dedication, as she has an abundance these. Beyond this she is pure pleasure to work with - always understanding, transparent, warm, and genuinely kind. Leigh is now not only the finest agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with in any capacity, but a friend. Do yourself a favor and look no further. Leigh is the finest agent you will ever find.
