About Me



LOCAL EXPERT

Born and raised in the Yakima Valley, Lesleigh not only offers new comers insights into local customs and culture but is also able to match that perfect home and area to their personal needs and desires…Sometimes rather quickly!

SHE KNOWS WHERE THE GOOD DEALS ARE….

If you are tired of everyone else getting those great deals, Lesleigh has a strategy that will allow you to be the LUCKY ONE to find that great deal first….make an offer that is a win-win for both you and the seller and lead you step by step through the maze of purchasing a home.

SHE UNDERSTANDS THE COMPLEXITIES Of MOVING

After 18 years residing in Lynnwood, Washington and a 5 year stay in China, Lesleigh has firsthand experience of the difficulties…for the whole family… when trying to move in to another area. Moving from an area where you might understand the market place to a new one that you think is the same has been one of the biggest obstacles buyers face when trying to negotiate for price.  She not only is a LOCAL EXPERT….she is a LOCAL MARKET EXPERT as well—something that has given her clients the advantage in negotiating price for their new Yakima home or property.

HER PHILOSOPHY ….FINISH WHAT YOU START

She never knew that her background in playing instruments such as b flat and e flat clarinet, alto clarinet, guitar and harp would teach her more than just music.  It taught her that once you start a song, you keep going until the end even through the tough parts; something she finds useful when she is in the middle of a tough deal.  She understands that you have to play every note well and finish the piece in order to get the applause.  And it's something her clients give her for her Real Estate Services again and again.

COMMUNICATION- SHE LISTENS WITH HER EARS AND EYES

Lesleigh's training as an interpreter for deaf people, training Chinese students to speak English and her studies in reading, writing and speaking Chinese along with working in a foreign environment has taught her the value of communicating clearly. Misunderstanding happens when someone only listens with their ears. In her Real Estate Business she has found the skill of listening both with her ears and her eyes to be instrumental in winning negotiations for her clients. A Chinese representative once asked me..."I wonder...should I believe my eyes or believe my ears?"
