My wife and I have relocated to Maryland from New Jersey. We started looking for property about 2 years ago, and chose Leslie Beard as our realtor. In addition to relocation, this is also a new chapter in our lives, as we transition to "empty nesters". Leslie has been very supportive during our quest to find the right house. We let her know that we were happy to look for houses on the internet, and would tell her when we found places of interest. Leslie would then react very quickly to arrange a viewing, and find out as much as she could about the property and the area. Our search has taken us and Leslie to many properties, some a considerable distance away. Leslie has always found time for us, and appreciated our ever changing demands as we swayed between big or small, town or country, new or old. When we eventually found the right house and decided to put in an offer, Leslie was extremely diligent and thorough to get us the best deal possible, and pushed for a timely closure. Leslie also had great knowledge of the local State and County entitlements/breaks and ensured that we paid minimum closing costs. I recommend Leslie strongly to any buyer, and we would definitely use her again as our Realtor.
