Leontine helped us find the perfect house to purchase 10 years ago, and we were so impressed with her that we recently hired her again to help us when it was time to sell the house. She is always quick to respond and extremely helpful with all types of issues. She knows the area well and was able to help us find the right people to perform minor repairs and fix up the house. She worked extremely hard for us, always kept us informed, and overall was very pleasant to work with. Highly recommended!

Leontine helped us find a home that was the perfect fit for myself and my family and we can not thank her enough! Not only did she have an abundance of knowledge surrounding local areas, but also about individual communities in the area, which made us feel extremely comfortable about purchasing our house in New Bern. Leontine always went above and beyond to help us get exactly what we were looking for both with finding the right home, as well as when it came to making an offer. With such timely responses and hard work on Leontine's part, we were able to close on a house within 2-3 weeks of viewing it, which was incredible, especially considering it was between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. You will not find a better, more helpful realtor than Leontine, and she is an absolute joy to work with, so thank you Leontine were are incredibly grateful for our beautiful home which you made possible, and for the laughs along the way.

Leontine made our home buying experience easy and fun! She is so helpful with every aspect of the process and took the time to explain it to us. She advocated for us, kept us updated, and always returned our calls. We are very satisfied and would highly recommend her!

Leontine is an exceptional realtor and a joy to work with. She was tenacious in watching out for our best interest. She is of the very best we have ever worked with (we are retired military, so we have worked with a few...) and she will be our family’s first choice when they begin their home search.

Leontine went the extra mile, time and time again, to make sure we were taken care of in our first home purchase. She surprised us numerous times by getting us more than we'd expected and made our home purchase a pleasure, despite a few bumps here and there. We really appreciated her experience and go-getter attitude.

Leontine worked very hard to make our sale happen. She stood out from the recommendations from other Military members, and from her impressive expertise. In our specific situation, she was an invaluable point of contact for last minute inspections, local contractors, and repair advice.
Some details with the selling party were also difficult, but Leontine went the extra mile to smooth out the process of getting the deal done. Highly recommended.

She was the best agent you can ask for. She will give objective reviews, and keeps everything about you. She walked through the houses with us, and even will point out problems that I would have missed.
She assisted closing on our house while we were out of town, stayed in the house during a 4 hour inspection, and made herself available at anytime.
We loved her so much that we listed our house with her again 18 months later when we had to move again. You will not be disappointed.

In short- Leontine is hands down, unequivocally, without a doubt the absolute best person you could possibly have on your side representing you. Especially if you are a military member, I cannot begin to emphasize the necessity to work with Leontine in helping you to find your home. She was recommended to me by another military member who told me how impressed he was with her. The moment I hung up the phone after speaking with her for the first time I knew I had a winner. Because my wife and I were stationed out of state, we flew in for the weekend to view homes. Leontine set aside the entire day Saturday and Sunday from 9am- 6pm (with no lunch break) so that we could visit over 40 homes in two counties. That is not counting the time she spent to prep our visit and coordinate with the home owners/ sellers' realtors so that we could see the homes. Then, as if that wasn't hard enough, we threw a few more homes in last minute the day of after seeing some neighborhoods we liked. Leontine never once tired or grew weary. She is like a rock in a sea of home buying emotions. My wife and I ended up finding a home we loved that very weekend and by the end of the week we were negotiating with the sellers. Every single step of the way Leontine not only answered every question I had, but also helped me ask or consider the right questions in the first place. We ended up closing on the house when expected and everything went extremely smoothly considering some of the horror stories that can be expected when buying a home while out of state. Working with Leontine is a first-time home buyers dream come true. She will set you up for success and even help save you from yourself. Interestingly enough, I have recommended her to three more of my friends who are also being stationed out here and they have had nothing but positive remarks to say about her as well. I am telling you, contact Leontine if you are looking for a home. I have absolutely no doubt that you will not only be as satisfied I am-- but you will feel like you owe her for all that she does for you. She is an absolute blessing to the world of Realty and I wish her nothing but success.
