"I hired Leslie end of September 2016, entered into contract with prospective buyers by mid December 2016 and closed on the house 2/15/2017. I think very highly of Leslie for several reasons of which most relevant to me were her professionalism, knowledge of her field, and attention to detail.
I can state with no hesitation that I would not have sold the house without Leslie's assistance. This is the first house I owned but I have worked with other agents int he process of looking for the house and interviewing in several different states in the United States and Leslie wins hands down. I only regret she cannot assist me find a new house at my new location. I would recommend to a family or a friend without hesitation."
"My husband and I we looking for a second home. Leslie was very patient with us in the 9 months it took to find a home! She knows the lay of the land, the ins and outs of so many communities which she showed most of to us! (Lol) We are in a great location 2 hours from our main home and absolutely love our vacation home! Leslie was there all through the process and you won't be sorry if you choose her as your real estate professional."
"Leslie was absolutely amazing to work with on the sale of our home. The property was a second home and our primary residence is 2 hours away. We needed someone who would be able to stand in for us since we wouldn't be able to easily/quickly get to the property. She was the perfect person and never let us down. We even had a large tree fall that was blocking the driveway. She not only let us know when it happened but also got multiple estimates for us so we could make an informed long distance decision. This is just one example of how Leslie was willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. I would highly recommend her services and if I ever need a realtor in the area again, I will definitely call her"
"You should stop looking around for a real estate agent now. Leslie will be the best agent you can find and I am 100% certain that you won't find anyone else better than her. She is a total professional, very knowledgeable about the market, kind, supportive, and a wonderful person as well. My husband is a very demanding perfectionist, and where other realtors might have thrown up their hands, she was gracious and her timely answers to his endless emails made for an exceptional purchasing experience. Leslie Eason is truly phenomenal!"
-SUZANNE & CARTER THOMPSON; BOONE, NC
"Leslie helped us look for a vacation home in the mountains of NC for nearly a year. We looked in 4 counties and Leslie either had personal knowledge or resources to pick from to find the type of property we were looking for. She showed us one early in the search that we ended up buying. if we had listened to her more closely, we would have saved a lot of time. Leslie was very helpful and was not a pushie agent. We remain good friends which I think says a lot about her methods and success. We highly recommend her."
-JACK & RUTH SPARKS; CARY & BANNER ELK, NC
"Leslie is awesome, she is down to earth and very approachable. She understands the needs of buyers and sellers and helps them come together in a very friendly and supportive way. She is very honest and candid which we liked a lot. She helped us purchase a a property in Banner Elk from long distance and she did it like as if we were there in person."
"Leslie helped us purchase our first home in Boone, NC, and was an absolute dream to work with. She was SO PATIENT with us first-timer home buyers, answering all of our questions graciously, no matter how basic. She was also incredibly generous with her time, showing us lots of different sorts of places when we really didn't have an idea of what we were looking for, what the local market was like, etc. We were struck by her honest assessments of houses we viewed, and really appreciated how much she seemed to be on our side, rather than simply interested in making a sale. I will be recommending Leslie to anyone who needs a realtor in Watauga County or places nearby."
-ALICE WRIGHT; BOONE, NC
"Leslie helped me in ALL aspects of finding my family the right property in NC. Especially, since I am from the northeast. She always was right on top of answering questions or acquiring any information needed. If, it wasn't for Leslie making sure I take the time to really look at the properties she showed me, I would not have purchased the piece I did! She is thoughtful, kind, and extremely efficient. She has great suggestions, and once she has a feel for what you are looking for, she finds it. She is straightforward and no BS!!"
-KATHY GOODALE; WEST JEFFERSON, NC
"Leslie was a pleasure to work with as our Buyer's Agent. She tirelessly drove us to see homes in western NC and had a good eye for knowing what we would like after spending some time with us. W hen it came time for the offer and purchase she was better than any realtor I've worked with: responded instantly to email questions, went above and beyond by helping us find services not directly associated with the purchase (like who is the cable provider for the area, etc.), and offered good advice on negotiation. I really can't stress enough how good she was about staying in communication. We live 3 hours away and it made the process easy at a distance. Last, she has a great handle on technology - she used an easy system for having us sign documents online rather than relying on mail, fax, or other clunky techniques. We signed most of our documents on a cell phone while having coffee! On a personal level, she's interesting and easy to talk to -- made those long distances between houses in the high country pass more quickly. Highly recommend! "
- ANNE MCLAUGHLIN & TOM DREWES; RALEIGH & BOONE, NC
"Leslie rocks! If you need an agent in the Boone area you should seriously consider Leslie Eason. We have both bought and sold a home with Leslie recently. Both experiences were wonderful. Leslie was very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. We live 3 hours away from Boone and could not drive up to handle all the things that needed doing to sell our home. Leslie helped coordinate cleaning and necessary repairs. She recommended vendors, helped with logistics and ran errands for us from a distance! Leslie also worked seamlessly with the buyer’s agent to ensure a smooth and timely closing. Thanks for all your help!"
- DAVIN TALLEY, MELBOURNE, NC
"Leslie Eason is an outstanding real estate agent who was vital to helping me buy my first home in November of 2009. She understood the types of homes that I was looking for and showed me sever al that were within my price range. Over the past couple of years she has stayed in touch in order to ensure that everything was still working out in my new home, and to offer her services in the future if they are needed. Leslie has outstanding "service after the sale" and I highly recommend her services as a real estate agent. You will not be disappointed!"
- RICHARD MYERS
"Leslie helped my fiance and I find the perfect home! We are first time home buyers and Leslie helped make it happen for us. Not only did she do an amazing job with her responsiveness and setting up viewings and finding all the info we needed to know on each house, she also showed persistence at helping make our dream come true! She is a fighter and wont settle for anything but what you deserve, she is without a doubt extremely helpful. Leslie is a badass realtor and I would recommend her to anyone trying to find their perfect mountain home :)"

"Leslie is wonderful. Her knowledge and expertise are remarkable and she is so personable and friendly. She really cares about her work, and the people with whom she works and serves. Leslie helped my husband and I find the perfect home for us.. our dream home and she worked so hard for us to make sure everything was done and done correctly.

"Ms. Eason made my real estate purchase effortless and enjoyable. She is a highly capable professional whose knowledge of our local real estate market made my search for an appropriate property efficient and nearly effortless. Ms Eason's friendly personality combined with her ability to give honest and direct feedback about all aspects of my real estate purchase, made this one of the easiest and most pleasant real estate transactions I have experienced."
- MARIAH BURNE
"Leslie was perfect. She spent a lot of time and effort into getting us our first home. She listened and was patient with us. Leslie was understanding and made sure that we were in our new home on time. Leslie was understanding and got us a great deal. I could not have asked for a better agent. Thanks Leslie for all your hard work and dedication!"
"Leslie is an excellent realtor and provides superior service whether you are a first time home buyer on a budget of $100,000, like us, or buying your second home with a budget way above that. We were looking to purchase our first home and weren't currently living in the area even but about 3 hours away. We would come up for a day and she would schedule us so that we could see multiple houses each time and make the most of each trip up. In total she showed us probably close to 30 houses before we found the one that became ours. She was excellent at guiding us through every step of the process including making our offer, inspection and closing. Being first time home buyers we had tons of questions along the way but she was never irritated by our long emails asking them and normally responded the same business day too. She even went above and beyond to help entertain our 2 year old son as we looked at each house. She provided us superior service for sure and has even became a dear friend of ours. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the High Country of NC."
- DANNY PROCTOR
"We contacted Leslie from out of state to look at some houses. She was very flexible and spent an entire Saturday looking at houses with us because we had a very limited amount of time available. She is very knowledgeable on both the housing trends and the area. Leslie was also straight forward on her concerns about properties that we viewed and potential issues we might run into buy purchasing them. Leslie isn't just out to sell you a property she is out to sell you the right property. I would recommend her to anyone."
- JOE MECHELE
"Leslie did a phenomenal job helping us to sell my grandfather's home. We were out of town and needed her help to manage repairs and the property itself and she was right there along the way. We very much enjoyed working with her."

"She was very helpful if finding us a house. She did her homework as we looked at 23 homes in 3 days. She was always on time in meeting us. I would use her again."
-DOUG & JANE CLAYTON
"I highly recommend Leslie Eason as your real estate agent for the High Country. She was instrumental in making our dream of owning land in the mountains possible. Leslie specializes in luxury properties; yet she treated us like VIPs, even though we are on a tight budget with difficult requirements and are quite possibly the most difficult clients on earth. Leslie expertly guided us through the now even more restrictive lending process, contract negotiation, finding surveyors, lawyers, etc. Through all of this Leslie has prove herself to be the best real estate agent I could ever hope for. She has been patient, kind, knowledgeable, proactive, and willing to go/hike the extra mile (even in the snow). Not only that, she has become my dear friend. If you choose Leslie as your real estate agent you are sure to find your dream home or THE SPOT you are looking for and will have fun while you are finding it. And you may also make a good friend. Happy Home Hunting!"
- DONNA & WILLIAM SAFLEY; RALEIGH, NC
We hired Leslie as a Buyer's Agent even though we have lived in the area for 25+ years. Leslie was always available and promo with answers to our questions. Her structural knowledge is impressive and she thinks nothing of climbing down into a dark crawl space to "check things out". When trying to decide between two homes, Leslie listened carefully to our wants and needs and helped us make an informed decision based on facts, not emotion, which was helpful during negotiations, a true professional.
-KIM & PETE CATOE; BOONE, NC
Leslie takes care to ensure your questions are answered and went above and beyond during the purchase process in a variety of areas. You definitely will be getting a dedicated person if you choose Leslie Eason.
Leslie took an interest in selling our home early on, and was confident that she could sell it --and she did. She always kept her appointments, and always returned my phone calls or e-mails within a reasonable time frame. Although she has vast experience in this business market, she took special interest in my unique situation. I have no hesitation in recommending her to prospective sellers or buyers.
