What an amazing experience! My wife and I were looking to sell our townhouse in conjunction with a military move. We had seen Leigh Ann’s flyers selling other units within our complex and went to her next open house to meet her. First impression of her and her fellow agent, Carlos, was that of an enthusiastic, knowledgeable professional ready to bring a full skill set to the task.
From the beginning, Leigh Ann demonstrated her expertise by:
– Identifying exactly what kind of buyer would be interested in our property.
– Knowing the features and upgrades in nearby properties comparable to our own and immediately formulating a price point to list our home.
– Initially doing a walk through and tactfully sharing where we could make improvements to either increase value or buyer’s initial impression; thereby raising the odds of getting an offer.
Shortly after the initial meeting, she provided a printed, full color booklet outlining her team’s recommendations listed in order of precedence. i.e. paint, fixtures, safety requirements. We executed those items that fit within our budget and it was all spot on; to the point we were jealous of the next owners.
As we prepared for the open house, Leigh Ann was always timely answering any of our questions. She checked in on us to see how our improvement projects were progressing and proved to be a constant source of encouragement and positivity.
End result, we had multiple offers the first weekend our property was listed and started the escrow/closing process immediately after. During closing, Leigh Ann was very straight forward about the give and take process regarding the buyer’s conditions. Her advice and knowledge were invaluable towards relieving the stress of trying to navigate through California’s real estate requirements and close the sell of our home.
At the end of all of this, Leigh Ann Elledge dispelled the stereotypes of the ‘typical’ real estate agent being either an unyielding bulldog for their client or just out for the commission. She is a consummate professional who knows her industry. She served us so well as a guide through this entire process; steering us towards well informed decisions through her tact, integrity and a firm stance on doing the right thing for all parties involved.
Because of her, I will be specifically seeking out Berkshire Hathaway for any future real estate needs.
