BUYING? I love the Fox River Valley and I'd love to share it with you. Tell me what you envision for you and your family....how you want to live your life. I work in St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia and the surrounding communties. My job is to help you find the community and house that you'll love.
My job is to serve you, not make you adapt to me. You make the schedule. You choose the search sites you want to use: Realtor.com, Trulia.com or Zillow.com, or any of the broker sites (shameless plug, try the award-winning bairdwarner.com).
You want to be 100% mobile? So do I. I'm crazy excited about how the iPad has changed how we work. From automated document management to being 100% online all the time, I can't imagine doing this job without my iPad.
One of my specialties is working with relocation clients. It's hard, but I'm an expert at helping you make the change. I am certified with many of the nation's largest relocation companies including SIRVA, Weichert and Odyssey.
I'm a data nut and a skilled negotiator, and I'll get you the best possible price for the house you decide to buy. SELLING? My job is to help you make the most money in the shortest time possible. It's a lot of work to sell your house but I'll be there to help you think like a buyer.
Yes, it's a price war and a beauty contest. I won't list a house without professional staging and photography. If you have a vacant house to sell, I'm now incorporating virtual staging into the program.
The hub of our listing strategy is our award-winning site Bairdwarner.com. My listings are featured on the nation's leading search sites: Realtor.com, Zillow.com and Trulia.com. Listing syndication done right here is complicated and time-consuming, but I'm an expert. I'll make it work to sell your house.
I'm Committed to Improving the Real Estate World I write blog posts here on ActiveRain that I hope will inspire or challenge agents and brokers become better at their jobs. Take a look at some of my blog posts here on ActiveRain.
St. Charles Home Seller "After working with two previous realtors, Leslie was a breath of fresh air. She quickly analyzed the reason why my home was not selling, and marketed it to the right audience. She created a fantastic portfolio and my home was sold in under a week. I would recommend Leslie to anyone who wants to work with someone who knows the real estate business and gets the job done. I only wish I'd known of Leslie's talents earlier. She would have saved me many months of disappointment and worry. With Leslie, she made selling our home painfree. Thanks Leslie." Batavia Home Buyer "Leslie was extremely professional and a joy to work with. She knew the area and quickly zeroed in on the type of home we were looking for. Leslie has also continued to be a resource long after we closed on the home. I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone moving to the area."
St. Charles Home Buyer "Leslie is so easy and fun to work with. She is knowledgable, knows everything there is to know about buying or selling. Leslie is always available . She gets back to her clients right away, no matter what time, day or nite. She has a great personality which is the reason we chose her as our realtor. We will definitely hire her in the future. I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone looking for an expert realtor."
Geneva Home Buyer "Leslie is the most responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with real estate agent I have had the pleasure of working with. My wife and I found her while looking for a new home in the western Chicago suburbs (Geneva, St. Charles) area and I was lucky enough to find a home listed by Leslie that caused me to reach out to her during our relocation. From my first call with her I could tell she was going to be great to work with as she responded very timely...Every area she showed us was spot on to our needs."
Wayne Home Seller "We listed our house with Leslie in the spring of 2012. We had been trying to sell our property since early in 2009 and had not had a large number of showings in a difficult market. Once we listed with Leslie the number of weekly showings increased dramatically and we had a buyer in 90 days, something we had begun to think impossible. Leslie is a really hard worker who puts her heart and soul into her customers, and if we ever list a house again I truly hope she'll be our listing agent. She really is the best at her job, plus she's a lot of fun to work with. A+"
Batavia Home Seller "Leslie was our agent for both the buying and selling of our home in Batavia, IL. We've moved a lot (4 times in less than 10 years) and have never used the same agent for both transactions. Leslie was our exception because she was so good! I was also very impressed with her negotiating skills. She was a great agent to work with and I would highly recommend her!"
