Hey there! I’m Leanne
I have found my passion in Real Estate, and I love working with people to support their goals and achieve their dreams. I help clients buy or sell homes with my proven processes, practices, marketing strategies, expert and highly informed advice, resulting in a smooth, stress-free closing that will not consume your life.
Real Estate is hard work, but that is probably why I love it! I learned the principles of hard work growing up on a vegetable farm and from my family’s butcher shop, Giles Meats. By the age of 8, I was selling meat behind my Dad’s counter. My first paying job was picking cucumbers in the field. As the saying goes…
“You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.”–Katrina Campbell
In other words, thanks to my small-town roots, I understand hard work.
I moved to Ottawa after high school to study marketing. After college, I grabbed the attention of Coca-Cola Enterprises, who hired me as an Account Manager. I was quickly recognized as one of Coke’s top performers, earning me a promotion to a Business Development Representative in southern Ontario. I loved my time at Coca-Cola, and it gave me the essential skills of sales, marketing and negotiating savvy, and running a successful business, which I now use in real estate.
In 2002, I moved to Cambridge to pursue an opportunity to open a restaurant and catering business. Owning a restaurant expanded my love of cooking and made me realize my true passion for working with the public and helping people.
I have aspired to be a realtor since the age of 16, and after selling my restaurant in 2005, I did. I followed my dream in 2006 to obtain my Real Estate license and have never looked back. In hindsight, there isn’t a more perfectly suited career for me. I use all of my previous life and work experiences to wholeheartedly support buyers and sellers and work diligently and strategically to lead that transaction to a successful conclusion. Add to that, I love all things house and home decor, care deeply for people and, combined with an instilled work ethic, and marketing skillset can negotiate tenaciously and successfully for you. I have extreme dedication to my clients, going that extra mile above the call of duty. I have built my business on referrals which is evident in my reviews.
My success and recognition as a Realtor are because I embody all the skills and adhere to the core values I have honed my entire career. When it comes to something as important as the sale or purchase of a home, you must work with someone that you feel comfortable and trust every step of the way.
I have great success due to this philosophy, especially when it comes to something as important as the sale or purchase of a home. Working with an agent that has proven results and strategies will make you feel confident that the transaction will be completed start to finish with the least amount of stress. I have been recognized by the RE/MAX Platinum, RE/MAX Chairman, RE/MAX Titan, RE/MAX Hall of Fame and RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement.
I am grateful for an incredible team supporting my work as your Realtor. My capable administrative staff work together to make the process as effortless as possible for my clients. With offices in Cambridge and Burlington, I have a broad ability to support your real estate needs in the areas of Kitchener/Waterloo, Cambridge, Burlington, Guelph, Paris, Woodstock, Milton and beyond . Despite the continually changing real estate market, it will not get in the way of helping you realize your vision and achieve your goals.
Honesty is the foundation of my business.
For all the Comforts of Home… Leave it to me.
