"My motivation is to find a place my clients can call home; a home where they create lasting memories. Given my design background and passion for connecting people, it is gratifying to collaborate with my clients in finding them their special space."-Leslie
After graduating from UCSB with a degree in Communication Studies, Leslie fell in love with all that Santa Barbara has to offer and decided to plant roots in the community. She worked at local companies, married a Santa Barbara native and raised her family in the Hope Ranch area. Leslie was a dedicated volunteer in her children's schools and has remained active in the Santa Barbara philanthropic community. Her volunteer work spans from the Dream Foundation and The Friendship Paddle to Hospice of Santa Barbara. She was also a board member and chairman of several events during her participation in the National Charity League of Santa Barbara.
Leslie joined the Santa Barbara real estate world after working in the design field for over a decade where she collaborated with a design firm located in Santa Barbara and Pacific Palisades. Her projects have involved highly complex design solutions ranging from the restoration of a mid-century modern home to the complete remodel of a 1920's Spanish estate. Leslie also has comprehensive experience in Marketing, Human Resources, Licensing and Securities Compliance, which all entail a high level of organization, attention to detail, and confidentiality.
Leslie appreciates the Santa Barbara lifestyle, fostering lasting relationships and connecting old and new friends. With her ability to network, extensive knowledge of the Santa Barbara area and its amenities, coupled with her design sense, Leslie can find that special place from a small cottage to a large estate for her clients to call home.
