Contact Leslee at 828-230-5734 for all your real estate questions and concerns. Below are just a few comments from previous clients:
“Leslee advised me on an acquisition of 216 acres with 2 houses on it. She provided comps on other properties which helped establish a value before purchasing. She followed every detail and managed the closing process including finding a 3 acre parcel that the attorney had not been properly recorded. She also provided information on zoning, taxes, and county requirements on placing land in the forestry use program and helped coordinate consultants such as the surveyor and the forester. She made a complicated 30 day closing possible. I have been in the real estate development business in the southeast for 45 years and would put her at the top of all the brokers I have worked with.
