From beginning to the end of the process, Leslie was truly fantastic. She took my wife and me around Chicago showing us the various areas. She asked what we wanted and eventually showed us exactly what we needed. She was incredibly knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of real estate. In  addition she is a very personable individual and an absolute pleasure to be with. Her knowledge of the legal, decorative, and geographical aspects of purchasing a home is truly amazing. This is the fifth house I have purchased and by far the best real estate agent I’ve ever had. I cannot say that anything needs to be improved in dealing with @properties and Leslie. My recommendation is without qualification!

Leslie is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, neighborhoods and properties, plus is very easy to work with. And her follow up is excellent. She made the process of finding a property, negotiating the contract and closing on the  purchase really easy and pleasant. Highly recommend using her.

Leslie is one of Chicago's most experienced, well-connected, and fantastic real-estate professionals. She is super knowledgeable in the Chicago market, very easy to work with, super responsive, and very patient! We were looking for the perfect home for about two years and Leslie stood by us along  the way - no problem. She and hear team showed us a number of properties and was constantly and consistently attentive, reachable, and just such a pleasure to work with.

We relocated from CA to IL in 2017. Leslie was one of the first people we met and she went out of her way to help us understand Chicago neighborhoods and the dynamics of the real estate market. She quickly understood our preferences and helped us narrow our search to the types of homes we would  actually buy. Due to the relocation process our availability was limited, but Leslie worked around our challenging schedules and made appointments whenever it worked for us. After we selected our home Leslie helped us through the offer process until the very end. Recently, a friend also relocated to IL and I recommended Leslie to him without hesitation. She is great!

Leslie has a tireless approach when searching for your apt/house. Her knowledge of the city and its amazing neighborhoods is second to none. It is never about her trying to find you a place to live, but finding you a place to call “HOME”. The effort her and Ali put forth is evident in the amount of  quality prospects you will view either online or showings. Your days are not wasted with 1 or 2 places, but a coordinated and calculated schedule which makes the process enjoyable and seamless. She is simply the best in Chicago period!

I have employed Leslie twice— to sell a condo and to purchase one. She is a professional who knows her business She is easy to work with and was always only a phone call or text away. I felt comfortable with her knowing that if problems came up, she would know how to handle them. I highly  recommend Leslie as a great realtor.

We can't imagine working with anyone else but Leslie and Ali to find our new home. Our process had a lot of ups and downs and Leslie's patience gave us the confidence to take our time and find the right place. Personally and professionally, Leslie is positive and extremely experienced, from search  to negotiation and closing. Highly recommend if you're looking for an advisor, rather than a traditional broker whose priority is to sell something.
