“The reason we chose Leah is her outstanding reputation for selling Glenn Lakes properties. We were not wrong in our choice. Leah exhibited outstanding qualities throughout the selling and closing process. Her communication skills were exceptional, always keeping us updated, and getting back to us in a timely manner. Leah’s desire to please the seller as well as the buyer was very much appreciated. Leah’s help at closing was extremely helpful to both parties since the buyer had limited English skills. We recommend her highly to others looking for an outstanding agent to handle their sale.”
