"We were so happy to have Leah sell our apartment! She was completely engaged and had great ideas. She made our apartment look amazing, and was always available to chat, talking us through the anxiety-producing experience of selling property in NYC. Though always professional, Leah is extremely friendly and personable. Her hard work paid off - the profit we made was higher than we ever imagined!" - Jane and David
"Leah was a blessing during our apartment hunt. She was always accessible, committed and honest about potential locations and properties. I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future and can only wish most brokers/agents would make the apartment hunt as easygoing as she did." - Esteban
"Leah’s expert advice made the daunting process of selling our home totally manageable. Her flair for staging made our apartment look gorgeous. She sold our apartment in one weekend, getting us far more money than we ever thought possible. Leah took care of the details so I could relax and focus on the next phase of my family’s life!" - Jenn
Leah loves making deals happen. Buying her first apartment in Park Slope in 1998 was one of the most exhilarating times of her life. Leah was moving from Western Canada and had only five days to find an apartment to buy. She started searching in Manhattan, and on the fifth day, ventured to Park Slope, discovering a fantastic neighborhood and apartment. She sealed the deal with the seller on an airplane phone, 30,000 feet above the Adirondacks.
Since then, Leah has purchased and sold over 30 of her properties, including townhouses, coops, condos, and even foreclosures, in numerous Brooklyn neighborhoods. Leah particularly enjoys negotiating, where her experience and steady hand have produced excellent results. Her Master's degree in design gives her an edge in evaluating a property’s potential and in finding ways to best show the property. Many of Leah’s personal properties set sales price records. She guarantees her clients the same level of attention she gives her own properties.
Leah’s extensive, personal experience, as both a buyer and seller, gives her a unique insight into what her clients need and deserve. Her first-hand knowledge of many of the pitfalls of the process and her proactive approach goes a long way toward ensuring things run smoothly.
In addition to her career in real estate, Leah is the co-founder of an internet start-up that uses behavioral economics and social dynamics to help couples save money together for their common goals. Leah loves the Botanic Garden, Prospect Park, and the neighborhoods’ many playgrounds, which she frequents daily with her two young children.
