Lea's most recent endorsements
My wife and I have worked with Lea for 3 years now. She first helped us relocate from Cincinnati to Tampa. From the moment we began interacting with Lea, she exceeded our expectations. Because of our first experience, we knew that we would work with Lea once when we were ready to buy a home. Lea's years of experience was so evident as we went through the home buying process as first time home buyers. She helped us to feel informed, pointed out what to look for in new construction, and gave direction on questions to ask as we all toured model home after model home. To anyone looking for a great realtor, and even an awesome friend, I would endorse Lea 10 times over. Lea, thank you for being awesome from the Nichols Family.– Victor Nichols
A MUST READ!.........HELLO EVERYONE, I have been in the CT home building and real estate business for 35+ years. I met Lea 1 1/2 years ago in St Petersburg. During the course of the first 9 months or so while I was in CT we stayed in contact and she would constantly educate me on the Florida real estate market and go on and above ones standard/typical duties of a real estate professional. I have been selling real estate in CT for many many years and have worked along side hundreds of agents and honestly I have never met any real estate agent like Lea. Any questions I had she would know the answers or find me the answers. Any concerns or questions I had about the Florida market whether it was in regard to home values, home construction, market trends, best value for your dollar,local activities, where to buy materials, list of sub contractors to insurance companies and even the different types of trees and termites, no matter what concern I had or what I needed, she would address it thoroughly, patiently & accurately. Anytime I called her, she would take the time to address any concerns I had with my purchase process. She would view property after property, giving up hours upon hours of her time, sending photos and videos of each property and surroundings to give me a better feel for the purchase.She has documents finalized and ready when needed, she is precise & punctual and knows all the real estate laws. This woman is on top of her game! Without question, she is one of the best, most educated, polite, personable, professional, cheerful, "in your corner" agents I have ever met and without any doubt at all, she will be the one helping me (and anyone I know) purchase and sell any of my future properties. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THE PURCHASE OR SALE OF A HOME OR LAND IN FLORIDA, CONTACT LEA. TRUST ME ON THIS, IT WOULD BE THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO TO MAKE ANY TRANSACTION GO MUCH SMOOTHER AND STRESS FREE. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY A ONE OF A KIND AGENT !....Thank you Lea, David in Connecticut– Dave B
