Leslie was an answer to prayer. My husband and I were relocating for work and had a really short window to house hunt and then move. Leslie made us a priority and right away got ahold of us and started planning home visits. She was super insightful when I came to the city’s that each home was located in and what the taxes would look like. She’s worked on the contractor side of the reality business as well so she’s able to see certain things inside of a house that a normal buyer wouldn’t be looking for. After just two days, we were able to find a house that we loved and she took on the rest. She negotiated with the seller and was able to get us more than we ever thought possible at closing. I would recommend her to anyone and if we ever decide to sell down the road, Leslie will be the first person I call. She truly is the best in the business.
From day one, Leslie has been the most supportive realtor we have ever encountered! Leslie has the perfect team including a professional stager and photographer to make our home shine on the internet and in person. She advised us on making settle changes to our home to create a more neutral feel to attract a wider range of audience when we went to list it. As soon as our home hit the market, we had thousands of views on Zillow and over 1800 saves. Within 3 weeks, our home sold. Leslie is extremely organized and attentive. From start to finish, she made this process a breeze. I would recommend Leslie to all my friends and family.
Second time using Leslie for purchasing and first time for selling, I couldn’t recommend anyone but her for anyone looking for an agent. Not only does she have a ton of experience but, she also was always available for me when we needed her. We will be using her for all future selling/buying.
It doesn't matter if your buying or selling a house, there is no other professional better in this business than Leslie Doran. I was amazed at the amount of knowledge & details she covered throughout the entire process. She worked harder and longer than I did; as if it was her own personal home. I can't say enough about how much I appreciated what Leslie did for me and I strongly recommend her services!
Leslie is a great Realtor, with great track record in what she does. Despite of the market conditions being high or low, Leslie will do all at her reach to get the best possible deal for your property. Thanks Leslie for your great professional work during the sale of our home in Troy, Mi. 100% Recommend!
Leslie definitely knows what she's doing and made the selling process effortless for us. She was able to get us the price we wanted, kept us well informed, was available to answer our questions quickly. She even went to the house to check on our cat and turn on lights/open blinds before a showing when we weren't available to be there. She had our home staged and that turned out so well, her photographer also did an excellent job for presenting our home on line. She has a delightful personality and was a pleasure to have working for us! She should definitely be the gal for you,you won't be disappointed!
I would highly recommend Leslie Doran to anyone in need of a real estate professional. If anyone has given Leslie a lower score, it is because they did not take her advise. Leslie doesn't sugar coat anything but by listening to her, we sold our house within a week. That was not an easy task as it was the week of July 4th and everyone was away!
When I first met with Leslie, she told me exactly what it was going to take to sell the house: Getting all the clutter out, painting a couple of rooms with neutral colors, and her calling in her stager. I did not challenge Leslie and cleaned out my cluttered closets, had the walls painted in beige (should have done that a few years ago)! Feedback from buyers was extremely positive as to how the house showed and I owe that to Leslie. I am most positive the house would have sold in under a week if it had a bigger yard!
When I received an offer, Leslie was right there to provide advice on the negotiations. She had already helped me with setting the list price and she knows the market so well, the final sale price was exactly what I had hoped for. This was my 8th move and 8th time selling a house, and Leslie is the best I have worked with! She came recommended by a coworker and I cannot thank him enough for the recommendation.
I am now on the east coast and may not have a chance to work with Leslie again but if you have the opportunity, I would highly suggest calling her!
Our family has worked with Leslie as a buyer and a seller, and have referred her to multiple co-workers, family and friends. Leslie is extremely knowledgable, motivated, accessable and a pleasure to work with.
Leslie is a real estate rock star!!! In a sellers' market, she managed to not only find us an amazing house, but negotiate a great deal on it at the same time. If there was a Million Dollar Listing - Rochester, she would definitely be the star of the show! She was very responsive, answering every text and call, no matter what the time (even late night), and was professional throughout the process. I would highly recommend Leslie.
Leslie provides excellent service. We are new to the Rochester hills area and she was very helpful in guidance during the purchase process as well as other questions that would arise
Leslie went above and beyond to help us sell our home quickly. We couldn’t have been happier with how she marketed our home. We can confidently recommend her for anyone looking for a realtor!!
If you have found the house of your dreams, or need help finding the house of your dreams, Leslie Doran is the best of the best to help you get that home. You won't find anyone more motivated, knowledgeable, or caring than Leslie. My Fiance and I just bought our first home and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Leslie helped make the buying process easy by always keeping us informed and making us feel comfortable with every decision we had to make. She was a God send! My fiance and I won't use anyone else for our realty needs! Thank you Leslie!!!
Leslie did an amazing job as our trusted advisor throughout our home selling process. She was very responsive and gave us outstanding advice that resulted in a successful sale in early June of 2018.
Leslie is the kind of person you want on your side when buying or selling a home, her negotiating skills are next to none and her knowledge of the industry is out of this world. Leslie helped me find the perfect home for me in no time! She's punctual, professional, and reassuring through the entire process. I've already recommended her to friends and family, and plan on contacting her in the future when it's time to buy/sell again!
My wife and I workes with Leslie to purchase our first home and really cannot say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, patient and incredibly generous with her time. Leslie gave us excellent guidance she answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. We hope that we will be in this home for many years to come, but when it’s time to move again we will definitely call Leslie! We highly recommended Leslie!!!!!
We contacted Leslie to list our home of 24 years so we could downsize. It is a great home but our love for wood was not shared by many of today's buyers who seemed to only be looking for white kitchens and woodwork. After consultation with Leslie we decided to "stage" the home but leave the wood without painting it. The late winter weather took a toll on potential buyers willingness to venture out and begin home shopping but Leslie kept our spirits high. We dropped the price to help encourage traffic and still things were a little slow. Finally, the weather turned and Spring arrived. After a couple of weeks and considerable hard work by Leslie, we found the right buyer for our home. The negotiations went extremely well and closing will be in a few weeks. We honestly had second thoughts about painting the woodwork and redoing the kitchen but the right buyer was out there for our home and we just needed to find them. So glad we had the steady hand of an experienced agent to guide us through the slow times! We know the new people will love the neighborhood and they can now complete whatever changes to the home that make sense to them. We had several discussions on what we should do to market our home and in the end patience and good marketing found just the right buyer. We could not be more pleased with Leslie and her team on completing the sale of our home!
We enjoyed working with Leslie. She was very knowledgable and helped us purchase a great home in downtown Rochester. WE have looked with her for about 4 years. She would always find time to show us a house that we wanted to see. We have listed our home in Rochester hills with her and hope to close on the sale soon.
Before meeting Leslie we were working with another agent who was taking days to respond to emails and clearly not making us a priority. Leslie responded to us almost immediately, and took time to assess where we are in the process and what our needs are. Being first time home buyers we asked Leslie to walk us through everything and that's exactly what she did. She had suggestions and pointed out information we wouldnt have considered. She took us to SO many showings, many of which were last minute, and was assertive when necessary with any offers we placed.
She made sure we were comfortable with our decision and made sure we weren't settling. She never made us feel pressured or rushed.
Leslie could not have been more amazing as she helped with every aspect of selling our home! From extensively knowing the market, to her resourcefulness with everything we needed, Leslie is for sure the absolute best! Relocation, moving, and selling can be stressful but having Leslie in our corner every step of the way made the process so much easier!! She is awesome at what she does and would, without any hesitation, recommend Leslie for your real estate needs :)
\u201CReal estate agent\u201D is a title that does not fully credit leslie’s impressive acumen. Her experience, knowledge and true passion for her craft defines her more as a lifestyle strategist than a mere home finder. Without hesitation, she 100% immersed herself in my needs, wants and worries…as if I was her only buyer. She thoughtfully planned a home finding strategy; relentlessly persevered through a difficult and contested marketplace; selflessly and tirelessly offered her time, counsel and expertise 24 hours a day. Frankly I have not encountered in my recent memory that kind of commitment, dedication, and focus. Leslie, is fiercely competitive yet cool, calm and above all positively encouraging. For me the result was a fair deal on an extraordinary home, and in the perfect location. It is not often that I meet someone in my professional or personal life that I endorse so unconditionally, so wholeheartedly, and with steadfast conviction.
Leslie did an excellent job selling my home. From start to finish, she was professional, responsive, and proactive and set us up for a successful and smooth transaction. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Leslie again or to recommend her to friends and family.
Leslie attended closing and did final walk thru for us as we were out of town. She has wonderful attention to detail and was very knowledgable about the home building process
Yes, would highly recommend her.
I interviewed most of the top agents in Rochester and found that Leslie was the quickest to respond, always answering her phone, and gave you a clear understanding of what to do in order to get the home sold. She provided me a checklist and a timeline, and we worked together to get top dollar for my home. She is with you from start to finish and will not pass you off to an assistant or team member. There is a reason why she is recognized as a top agent in metro Detroit! Don't sell a home without her!
Leslie is pleasure to work with! Leslie is extremely professional and very responsive. I would absolutely recommend anyone I know to work with Leslie and we will certainly work with her in the future should a need arise.
Worked with Leslie over 10 years ago and she always had the information we needed when buying a new home. Returned calls. Very professional and knowledgeable. Won't hesitate to use again when time to move on.... which might be soon.
Leslie will exceed your expectations whether she is working for you as a buyer or a seller. In my opinion, she knows the business better than any other agent in the area to her decades of experience. She is very innovative and always adjusting to market needs and changes. Her reputation amongst the community and other agents is very strong. To me, this is the most important thing when it comes to choosing an agent. It makes the negotiation process that much stronger. I would strongly recommend Leslie and is the only agent I would ever work with.
Leslie was incredible to work with! I would recommend her to everyone and anyone looking for a great real estate agent. She always responded fast and found us great houses to look at that met the majority, if not all, of our "must haves". She worked hard to make sure we closed on time and with all the negotiations we wanted. She was also hilarious which is a plus in my book. She made us feel like we were her only clients. We were first time home buyers and she really knew her stuff and helped us feel comfortable with the whole process.
Highly, HIGHLY recommend!
I have worked with Leslie as a buyer and a seller and would not work with any other realtor in Michigan. She is outstanding and always has her clients best interests at heart.
This most recent transaction was our third (Two sales and one purchase) with Leslie. She has always given us good counsel on price, process and any changes needed to our properties to help with a successful sale. In our latest deal, our rental property condo, after some recommended minor improvements were made, sold within 24 hours of listing at 10% above our asking price! With each of our real estate transactions, Leslie's performance has been very impressive and exceeded our expectations. I recommend Leslie without hesitation and have done so to friends on multiple occasions.
Leslie helped me find the perfect house for our family. We had a few neighborhoods in mind that were not close to each other and were very different from where we were currently living. Leslie was very patient and walked us through so many homes, helping with the pros and cons of each. Every step of the way I found myself trusting her more and more, as she was not out to "make a sale". She loves what she does and is only happy when you are in the home of your dreams. I love our home and the neighborhood is perfect. I have referred Leslie to over 20+ friends and all of them have loved their experience and have gone on to refer her to their friends.
Leslie was very knowledgeable of the market, which helped us to price our property right and get is sold at just about listing price in five days. We had multiple offers and Leslie helped us sort them out and come up with the best option for us. She also was great in helping us to get the property ready go on the market. She recommended us the right people to get some items done at the property. She also was very responsive, returning calls and mails very quickly.
Leslie has the experience to navigate transactions in a see less fashion. She helped us locate just the right property. She is most patient and always places the interest of her client above herself.
Leslie is an absolute ROCKSTAR!!! She is truly a real-estate pro in every way. She has great communication skills, is super efficient, and a crazy hard worker. On top of that, she is a great person who is down-to-earth, funny, and easy to talk to... An absolute winning combination of attributes. Of note, Leslie helped us buy (and later sell) our first home. As newbies to real-estate, Leslie was patient with us, thorough, and patiently walked us through every step along the way (both with the buying and later the selling process). She managed both transactions with poise, absolute confidence & professionalism. You know that when Leslie "goes to bat for you" everything will work out just fine and you can sleep well at night. We place our complete trust in her and were continually amazed at how she continually exceeded our expectations at every turn. If you want the job done right, work with Leslie!!!!
Leslie was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. Selling a my home with Leslie was a very pleasant experience. Leslie is patient and takes the time to explain the sales process, she is responsive and answers questions honestly. I felt totally prepared for the home sale experience and there were no unpleasant surprises. I would highly recommend Leslie.
Leslie was recommended from a friend, which turned out to be very appreciated.
Initial meeting and review of scope of services: Clear and concise communicator with strong year over year results. Also very well organized and knowledgeable about the subdivision/market conditions.
Preparation for listing: Thorough process and recommendations provided to prepare the home for pictures. Leslie also didn't try to over or under promise regarding list price, timing to sell and potential buyer traffic (open house).
Open House: Online system used to accept/reject visitors and also accommodated our request for visitors to remove shoes and also not eat any peanuts (son has peanut allergy).
Negotiation of offers: Leslie was working in my best interest and was quick with updates. I expect the realtor to come with offers and then add recommendations as the hired expert. Leslie's style was a good match for me.
Closing: A rather unique buyer/realtor provided some interesting opportunities for the closing to go considerably less than usual. This was a very unpleasant experience for me but Leslie worked hard to navigate the issues and secure a reasonable resolution.
Leslie Doran is a very knowledgeable realtor. I used her to lease, buy, and sell my houses. She is professional and I appreciate her candor. Leslie is intuitive and know what her clients are looking for in a home.
Leslie continues to prove her unmatched professionalism, tireless work ethic and profound knowledge of home buying/selling. Leslie has purchased and sold for me. In my experience, she has the uncanny ability to sensibly navigate the sometimes chaotic and uncertain real estate business, providing clear, confident and sensational options. Leslie demonstrated extraordinary efforts in truly understanding my needs wants and worries. Leslie's modest, delightful and introspective approach is only outmatched by her unrelenting pursuit for the best deal for her clients. She mines and leverages market data, trends and insights that support her sage advice, and to identify the most exciting opportunities. I will continue to put my trust in her.
Best Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with. She was always available which was very helpful throughout the whole process. I can highly recommend Leslie and I will for sure work with her in the future.
Over the course of the last 12 years I dealt with many different real estate agents. Leslie was by far the best agent I worked with. I was dealing with her on buying and selling a house and her help throughout the whole process was perfect.
I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone selling or buying a home. We knew we were in great hands through the entire process. Leslie knows the area, walked us through everything we needed to know for selling our house, and always quickly responded to any of our questions or concerns. Leslie has strong negotiating skills something we were very impressed with. I will recommend Leslie to anyone looking for a realtor!
Leslie Doran exemplifies the utmost in high standards for professionalism and customer service. She has a masterful control of detail, fully understands the local areas and market values, and has a wonderful sense of intuition when it comes to house presentation. She demonstrates integrity and responsiveness to customer questions and concerns. Our home was presented at its finest and sold extremely quickly. We are so happy that we followed her sage advice, and she has our highest recommendation.
Leslie was very professional, helpful, and responsive in the sale of our house. She was always available and follow up in a timely manner to ensure all the logistics and coordination were taken care of for a smooth transaction.
Leslie did solid research to help set the right starting price and develop strategies to get the house sold. Leslie brought great ideas to help stage the house from the beginning to position it in the market. Always responsive to questions.
Crazy smart and profoundly knowledgable
Knows her craft, passion for the business, and astutely aware of the most current opportunities to market a home
Leslie's tenacity, resolve, savvy and sheer will is unmatched by any agent I have ever had encountered.
Leslie listens carefully, executes flawlessly and demonstrates uncanny agility with unexpected challenges.
Leslie also is approachable, affable and possesses an innate instinct for business.
I run $390m of business with 40 people in my group. I have high expectations for a high performance team. Leslie just raised that bar
Leslie has worked with my wife and me for more than 6 years to find the right home in downtown Rochester. We had a long list of essential criteria and most agents would have politely walked away years ago. Leslie has shown us at least 30 homes and finally we found one that met all of the criteria. She was instrumental in completing the very difficult negotiations for the house we ended up buying and was always available for discussions along the way. Without her, we would never have accomplished our goal of finding the right house in Rochester. I don't believe you will ever find an agent more professional, knowledgeable, patient and fun to work with.
Leslie was there for us every step of the way. She's does her research to help you set the right price as well as to negotiate from a position of strength
Leslie was amazing! She helped us find our dream home on an all sports lake and was able to list and sell our current home in a very short timeframe. I always felt like she had our best interest in mind and answered any question we threw at her. I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone!
Leslie was always readily available to show a home and communicated quickly back and forth via email, text, and phone. She was prompt with amending contracts and was a great advisor during the entire process. We were grateful to have her on our side of our deal, as it was more complicated than most. If you want an agent who will go to bat for you especially against a difficult agent, she is the agent for you. She can hold her own when negotiating any deal and will fight with you til the end. She cares about her clients and I highly recommend her! :)
It was incredible experience.
We were first time buyers and had little to no knowledge about the process and how things work.
Leslie make the entire process smooth and nice. She knows all the market well, gives reasonable suggestions and has perfect negotiation skills.
When it will be time to sell the house or purchase another one - Leslie gonna be my agent.
Leslie is an incredible realtor. My sister used her a number of months back and raved about her diligence, professionalism and determination in the home buying process. I started down the path with Leslie not even sure if I was in the market or not. She made sure she understood my motivations, needs and desires in the process. I had very specific requirements and she stayed engaged and kept looking for the correct "fit" for me. Once we found the right place, she was determined and helped me through the negotiation process and to eventually strike a deal that made sense for all. With almost any home transaction there are always surprises and challenges (at least that is my experience). Leslie was amazing, going the extra mile to get all the required approvals and documentation to close on time. I am thrilled with my purchase and she really made it easy. I respected her throughout the process and now consider her a friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in the buying or selling process.
