My Client Reviews
Jo Ann K.
From the moment she entered our home, Leslie was friendly and professional. We were moving out-of-state in October, so not the best time of year to sell a home. Leslie helped us price our home fairly, without giving it away, to facilitate a quick sale. The photos were amazing. Leslie's follow-up with other realtors was exceptional. We were under contract in just over 30 days and closed the sale in the next 30 days. Leslie is, by far, the best realtor we have worked with over the years.
Working with Leslie to buy my first home was an amazing experience! She was very responsive and knowledgeable in answering all of my many questons!
I couldn't ask for a better realtor and why I chose to go with Leslie again for my second purchase/sale. She will go out of her way to ensure the purchase/sale goes as smooth as it possibly can.
Leslie Layne is a top notch, A+ Real Estate Agent that keeps her clients best interest in mind, no question! I have worked along side Leslie with many of her buyers, and they ALL have nothing but great things to say about her! You can't go wrong putting your trust with Leslie!
Mrs. Leslie Layne is a top tier real estate agent who I have used twice; to purchase and sell a home. She was so good the first time I sought her services when it came time to sell the home she sold me. There was never another option even though seven (7) years passed from the first time she provided service. In 2011 I purchased a home in Plano, Illinois while living overseas in Japan. The entire transaction completed without an issue thanks to depending on Leslie to work with my local family members. She assisted in everything from finding the right home to the inspection and closing, without me ever being physically present! If this does not impress you, please wait, there is more. Although I never met Leslie in person she continued to send my family holiday cards (multiple, not only Christmas). She is personable, approachable and no non-sense because she is highly regarded and savvy. When it unexpectedly came time to sell my home I called Leslie to ask if she was available without hesitation. From the moment she became my agent I knew I was in good hands again. Her recommendations of what to do to the home to prepare it for listing, the agreed on listing price, advise on how to respond to offers and subsequent negotiations with the eventual buyer were all spot on 110%! I sold my home to the first couple to look at it even though we were approaching the Thanksgiving holiday! Impressed? Read on more! Leslie pays a professional photographer to photograph your home and she does it from her own funds! she will not charge you! Home photographs may be the single most under rated supplement to buy/sell a home, but it is most likely the very thing to get a buyer to visit your home in the first place. The property received top quality photos set up in a way to help potential buyers visualize the home as if they were there. The photographer also provided wonderful aerial photos to show off the property size! Further, Leslie will print out fantastic flyer handouts for potential buyers to take home and again it is from her own funds as she knows what it takes to sell a home. Leslie will recommend a phenomenal supporting team to help finalize the purchase or sale of your home. No pressure, but I recommend taking her advice because a team who has worked together before and willing to do so again results in grade- A quality service. The lawyer she recommended was always available to answer questions and to guide me through counter-requests from the buyer. I was able to speak my mind and no one was impatient to explain to me a process when I did not fully understand it. The contractors who Leslie can recommend are all highly regarded and each did their part to make my home sale a reality. If you are looking for a knowledgeable realtor, look no further because Leslie has proven she can accept out of the ordinary relationships and still succeed to satisfaction because it what a professional is capable of. I highly recommend Leslie and would not hesitate to use her again in the future, thank you for all that you have done and do Leslie! Very respectfully, JA & MT Lund
