Let's face it, there have been many changes in real estate and the lending industry in the past few years. Lending practices have tightened up and new qualification standards will make it difficult for many buyers to qualify for a loan. Home buyers will have to show employment history with consistant income and a good credit history. Interest rates will become "risk-based" and those people with credit above 720 will be rewarded with lower interest rates. Borrowers will be required to save money for a down payment. Conventional, FHA and VA loan programs are available for those who qualify for the payment. We can continue to do business, it will be conservative compared to the past few years.
Buying a home can still be one of the best ways to build wealth. Today's buyers have an advantage over buyers two years ago. There is more inventory to choose from and and you have the luxury of time. A couple of years ago, buyers had to make buying decision in less than 24 hours or risk losing the property to another buyer.
Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make a good buying decision. Our knowledge of the area and our real estate market can help you make a good investment in a home or income property.
As a 20 year veteran of the real estate industry, I have seen the gambit in real estate markets. I have the experience to help buyers though all types of transactions, but I am fond of first time buyers and new construction . I love helping folks find a home that fits both their needs and their budget. The devil is truly in the details and I work very hard to provide each client with excellent customer service.
I am native Oregonian and I consider myself a "Canyon Girl," living most of my life in Mill City. My family includes my husband Scott, daughter Kendra, her husband Josh, granddaughters Quinn and Scarlett and youngest daughter Kelsey who is continuing her education at OIT in Klamath Falls. The rest of the crew is rounded out Loki a Yorkshire Terrier. I believe "Chocolate" is a food group, especially dark chocolate and had time to check out several varieties of European Chocolate on memorable trip to Germany, England and Holland. I love to read and I usually have 3 or 4 books going at once. I adore James Bond and Danny Kaye movies, enjoy gardening and when time presents itself, I keep the road warm from Mill City to Klamath Falls visiting my parents. My husband and I just purchased kayaks and we are enjoying ourselves, paddling around Detroit Lake and other spots in Oregon and Washington.
The Santiam River Falls in Mill City (Oregon). It's a perfect day to kayak!

My experience as a buyer's broker will save you money. My goal is to provide my buyers with the knowledge they need to make an informed and educated decision during the buying process. As an canyon-area resident for many years, my knowledge of the local market and neighborhoods will be beneficial to you as a buyer. I believe communication is key in any relationship, business or personal.
Our team is a dedicated group of brokers and together we have 60+ combined years of experience to pull from. Brenda and Sandy take excellent care of sellers and Mary and I work strictly for buyers. Brenda and Sandy have put together a fabulous marketing plan designed to get your home sold, in the least amount of market time and for the highest possible price! Doesn't that sound great?
We market residential properties, new construction, residential with acreage properties and we specialize in North Santiam Riverfront properties. We love a challenge and are not afraid to take on unique properties that need a little extra "marketing" to get sold. Give us a call today and let us show you why we are the 'Go-To Team!'

I fully understand the nervous jitters of new home buyer's. Before any offer is made, I walk them through the process of a home purchase, from pre-qualification and approval, the importance of writing a good offer, the inspection process and repair negotiation, mortgage process, what will happen in underwriting, and the complete closing process. My experience has taught me that if buyers know what to expect next, they have less apprehension about the transaction process. First Time Buyers have many questions and are so excited about their prospective new home. I love working with first time buyers and I get deep satisfaction knowing I helped them purchase the right home at the right time.
My other passion is new construction purchases. I have many years of experience working new construction and helping a buyer through the construction process.
I love referrals! Rest assured your referrals will be handled with the utmost care and diligence. Whether you are buying or selling a home, call me today.
I have a passion for Oregon. My family and I spend many hours exploring much of what Oregon has to offer her residents and visitors. If you are looking for something todo, check this out:

"Leslie was a pleasure to work with... always returned our calls... answered all our questions... a real professional! She loves her job and it shows." - Roy Townsend
"We are thrilled with our new home! Thank you for making the process smooth and understandable. We will definitely recommend you to other people!" -Caleb & Annie Burlison
"I would like to take this time to thank you for your courteous and professional help as a real estate agent. I highly recommend you to anyone in our area who needs your services. Mary Ann and myself have had some sour experiences in the past with other real estate agents by being pressured and misled into buying the home that wasn't meant for us. Your help was straight forward and honest, with no pressure. We will surely use your services in our next home sale and purchase." - John & Mary Ann Smith
