    • Our Realtor Tracy was there for us (Saturday after Saturday...and then some weeknights) every step of the way. The staff as well at Leigh Brown were all courteous and always professional, yet personable and easy to work with! Would definitely recommend them.

    • I have personally known Leigh Brown for 10 years and have used her as my buying agent 3 times, selling agent 1 time. She always goes above and beyond any of my expectations and always keeps her clients' best interests in mind. She is a tough cookie and an expert in all aspects of real estate. If you are a seller, she will promote/advertise your property with a vast array of marketing strategies to ensure potential buyers of all ages or lifestyles can access your property information via numerous websites, automated phone information service, printed booklets in color, and word-of-mouth. She has established an extensive network nationwide and has earned the respect of her fellow real estate agents.Once you partner with Leigh, you will never need to research other realtor/agency qualifications or their client testimonials because she's that good. She will never waste your time and looks for every way to save her clients' money and/or headaches. She is also a very kind and thoughtful person and does great things for her community outside of work.I have so much confidence in Leigh and her work ethic, honesty, and overall experience. Rarely do you meet a person who is down-to-earth, protective of her clients, and not just out for your commission. She has 5-star ratings everywhere for a reason. You will not regret choosing Leigh as your real estate representative

    • I specifically worked with Lawrence Mahool who is an agent with Leigh Brown's team. He was outstanding. I listed a home in Myers Park on Zillow on a whim. The home was tenant occupied for the next 60 days so I knew I would have my challenges if anyone actually wanted to see it. Well they did, I received 32 phone calls and emails that weekend, so many that I took down the listing.I got back with each of the 32 contacts, some individuals and some Realtors. Only Lawrence was proactive. Responded that his client may be willing to place an offer which bought the house and the tenant's lease as they really wanted that location. Of course I said sure, bring me an offer.....and he did. We reached an agreement and the deal was closed in 30 days.Interestingly I received a call from one realtor asking about the status and she responded by saying I should have called her as she would have probably gotten over the asking price from her client. As I shared with Lawrence, his handling of the transaction is what separates a professional from the rest of the pack. He was creative and got the deal done.I am sure some will say well you priced it too low. Maybe but I doubt it as it was at the top of the market for what was selling in that neighborhood. Besides, Lawrence had a cash offer with no contingencies. My belief is take the best deal that makes sense rather than waiting for the dream offer. In this case, I am happy and so are the buyers. Their agent did his job--Thanks Lawrence.

    • Awesome! We got everything we wanted and more with their help. They helped us choose a lender and did all of the grunt work and keep us informed through the whole thing! Their team is fast and really helpful and nice, we worked with Amy Gamble and Terra Patterson and they were amazing!

    • Great realtor and the best in Harrisburg, NC. Leigh and her team advocated for me during the sale of my home. She always kept me in the loop and let me know what to expect during the process. Very knowledgeable and courteous. I will definately use her in all my real estate transactions in the future.

    • In 2011 we sold our home in PA to relocate to NC. Our home sold much sooner than we expected which left us scrambling to find a house in NC. I found Leigh's website and contacted her. I had been reviewing real estate online and had a list of homes I wanted to see. The one home I was most interested in went under contract the same day I looked at it before I was ready to make an offer. Leigh discouraged me from looking at some of the other homes on my list because she was aware of "problems." Leigh showed me three other homes she thought would meet our needs and one was a perfect fit for my husband and I. Every time our son, who lives in the area, comes into our home, he comments how much he likes the house and how glad he is that this is the home we chose. I feel Leigh was very honest and more concerned about finding us the right house than just making a sale. I also felt Leigh gave me the same advice she would give to a family member. I highly recommend her.

    • LOVE LOVE LOVE Leigh Brown and Associates!!!!!! They were great at helping me find me a new home 4 years ago and I'm looking forward to working with them again soon!

    • We used Leigh Brown to purchase a new home, as our management company for our rental and again to sell our rental home. All three times we were very pleased. Our emails were answered promptly and answered our questions. We would highly recommend Leigh Brown and team.

      - user2839807
    • When we decided to move to NC Leigh Brown and Tracy were very knowledgeable. They made our house hunting experience fun. We needed to stay in temporary housing and they knew just the right place. If we decide to move again, we know her team will be ready for us!!

      - mattchandler76
    • Leigh Brown and her outstanding team helped me to buy a home for a great price, in a great location and with the best customer service of any realtor around! The process was was fast, fun, efficient, honest and a positive experience. Since that time, Leigh and her team have still been there with immediate answers to questions with the real estate market or the home. Honesty is so important and Leigh will always give you the straight answers! Emails and phone calls receive almost immediate responses! Leigh and her team will be our realtors for life!

    • We worked with Leigh and her staff to purchase a house in 2012 in Harrisburg. Nothing but great things to say about her and her team. Everyone was very professional and all questions were answered quickly. I would recommend Leigh and her team for anyone wanting to by a house in the Charlotte or surrounding area.

    • MARCUS NANCE WAS ALL WE COULD ASK FOR IN A REALTOR. ANY QUESTION WE HAD ,HE EITHER HAD THE ANSWER OR FOUND THE ANSWER FOR US.THE BACKUP IN THE OFFICE WAS EXCELLENT,LEIGH STRICKLAND WAS ALWAYS VERY HELPFUL FOR WHAT EVER NEED WE HAD. WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND THIS FIRM TO ANY FRIEND.

      - CHOVIS
    • I was extremely pleased, house had been listed for 7 months with a competitor. I called and had an appointment with Marcus Nance and we had an offer within the month that resulted in the sale. Marcus had done some research on the house before even meeting with me in person and had found that we could expand the viewing audience by listing the bonus room as a bedroom since there was an adjoining bath with closet. I had already had to move out of state and he was able to recommend vendors/contractors to correct the needed issues. He kept me totally informed every step of the way. This was the 9th home I have sold in my lifetime but the market had never been this distressed. I would highly recommend Leigh Brown & Associates.

    • Leigh, thank you for your zeal and enthusiasm demonstrated throughout the sale cycle. You did what you promised and we are very satisfied with the sale price you negotiated. And, most importantly, you found a buyer that loves the home as much as we do. All parties won on this deal! Thank you! I would strongly recommend your services to anyone thinking of selling their home.

    • Leigh Brown and Associates has been very helpful in the purchase and sell of several properties that I have been involved with over the past couple of years. The entire team has been most responsive in all aspects of each transaction. I do recommend them to anyone looking for a quality real estate organization.

      - user32969537
    • Tracy was our buyers rep and she put up with my million questions and was there any time we need her or had a question. They took care of us from start to finish. They set us up with a lender and closing lawyer. Could not ask for a better agent. we purchased our home start to finish in 14 days.

      - Tabarber
    • Leigh and her amazing team held our hands the entire way. we loved iut of state and our former renter destroyed our home. The ladies did an amazing job preparing our home for sale and getting it sold! We would highly recommend them to ANYONE looking to sell or buy a home!

    • My wife and I recently moved from Texas to Charlotte, NC and we worked with Amy Gamble at Leigh Brown and Associates. We had very limited access to the area during our housing search, which could have made the process difficult and frustrating. Instead, Amy and her team did an absolutely terrific and thorough job walking us through each step, visiting properties for us, and making things easy for us. As first time home buyers, we needed an agent who would be willing to explain each step, give solid advice, and keep things as simple as possible. Amy met and exceeded our expectations, going above and beyond what was necessary to ensure a smooth and painless buying process. I have no reservations about recommending her and the entire team over at Leigh Brown.

    • Leigh and her entire team were on the ball from day one! We had already relocated out of town but Leigh was able to conference with us via the web. Before Leigh Brown our house sat on the market off and on for nearly two years and we had two agents that just could not sell our house. Leigh was not intimidated, though, she knew exactly what changes needed to be made to get our house sold. Actions speak even louder than words because we were in a contract within 2 days of listing our house! We closed yesterday!

      - Helmsarefloridabound
    • The Leigh Brown Team was exceptional. We were relocating from out of state. All of our expectations were met. We were pleased with every step of the process. Thank you Amy Gamble for your professionalism and attention to detail. Thank you Tracy and Terra for keeping us on track during this long distance transaction. From the initial phone contact to the closing, all went smoothly. Many thanks!!!

      - user9414863
    • Amy Gamble is one of the best realtors around. She is very knowledgeable in the process and has a great network of contractors to help facilitate the buying process when repair estimates are needed. She is also very quick with communication and uses technology well - it always seems like she is right there anytime you have a question that needs an answer. Leigh Brown uses the DocuSign process for signing docs online which makes the paperwork side of the process very easy. I never thought I would like using a realtor, but this company changed my mind. Highly recommended.

      - Scotcher3
    • Amy Gamble and her team were great! Amy showed genuine interest in the type of home we were looking for and was always willing to show additional homes until the right home was found. The purchase and closing went very smoothly. It was a great experience and we would recommend her to our friends and anyone looking for a real estate agent.

    • Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills:Leigh & her team have sold 3 properties for us over the last 12-14 months. She's been very knowledgeable about current market conditions & handled our sales very well. She has a good support team that handle the entire transaction from beginning to end.

      - Garrett Jenio
    • Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills:Amy Gamble is on Leighs team and is fantastic! Over the last 30 years we have bought and sold many homes through seasoned highly skilled personnel; yet Amy's professionalism, skill, and personal drive, exceeds everyone else! Amy has also helped us in many ways that have nothing to do with buying a home but everything to do with moving to a new area, and made this much simpler and enjoyable. Amys back-office team was also very helpful collapsing the timeframe and resources needed to get things done. I strongly endorse Amy and her team for anyone buying or selling a home or property. Thank you Amy & Team!

    • If you want to be confident that you are doing the right thing, call Leigh Brown! She tells it like it is, knows the industry and local market, and has a plan for action. After having our home on the market for 6 months, we called Leigh for a change. Unlike our other realtor (and i suspect realtors in general) Leigh had an opinion on EVERYTHING! Backed up by knowledge, experience and specific data. With Leigh we sold in one month. Her entire team is magnificent and everything was covered. I cannot recommed enough! Thanks Leigh!!

    • I can't say enough about Leigh Brown & Associates- and the incredible job they did helping us find our new home. From start to finish, they made the entire process so easy for us... RESPONSIVENESS: I never sent an email or made a phone call that wasn't answered immediately. To me, this is one of THE MOST important things when you're purchasing a home. Leigh Brown and her team know that your time is valuable. They do everything they can to work with you around your schedule. CONVENIENCE: They use the docusign technology, which makes everything so much easier. I didn't have to mail or fax a single thing to them- which made the turnaround time on everything SO much quicker, which is very valuable when time is of the essence in your home buying process. When our move in day approached, we were thrilled to learn that Leigh Brown & Associates let's you use their 20ft moving truck completely FOR FREE! That saved us a ton of $, which couldn't have come at a better time. The truck was extremely nice- and it even included a nice dolly and about 12 thick moving blankets. DEDICATION: They are 100% working for you. We ran into numerous complications with our purchase- related to the appraisal and also dealing with a difficult seller. We feel like we were supported and represented with utmost professionalism during the whole process. Our agent bent over backwards and really went to bat for us to make sure we had every chance of getting our dream home- and it paid off in the end! We feel like other agents might have encouraged us to move in a different direction, but knowing how much we really wanted the house, ours really put in the extra time, effort, research and resources to get the deal done- and we are in our dream house today! INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE: Having an agent who really knows the business is key. Our agent knew the ins and outs of the entire process, the complexities of the legalities, and most importantly she knew how to interpret it all to us so that we could understand how everything was working along the way. Through the negotiation process we feel that she paid extra close attention to the way she worded things- looking at it from all angles and making sure she represented us in the right way.I highly recommend Leigh Brown & Associates if you're looking for an agent. We used them as buyers agents, but I can imagine they would shine on the selling end as well.

    • Easy transaction. The Attorney's for the buyers closing weren't the best. Had to remind them of several things, several times.

      - Ned & Linda Baker
    • Best experience I could have asked for!! I actually had my transaction with Amy Gamble, Leigh Brown's Buyer's agent, since Leigh is a Seller's Agent. Amy was awesome from beginning to end! She always returned my calls promptly if she wasn't able to answer at the time of the call and she was efficient with emails and texts also. From the moment I met her, I knew I would like her. She was always professional in appearance and always kept her word.She is very knowledgable in this ever-changing world of real estate (I am a former agent myself, so I should know). I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed working with her. It's was a bitter-sweet closing for me; I'm happy to be in my new home, but I'm going to miss working with Amy.Kudos to Leigh Brown for having such an attractive, yet knowledgable Buyer's Agent on her team!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them both.

    • I can not say enough good things about Leigh Brown and her amazing team. We decided to sell our house to pull the equity out to prepare for our daughters heart surgery. Emotional sell, Bad economy, hard combination. Leigh and Virginia are AMAZING, very knowledgeable. Once we put our unknowledgeable ego's to rest and we realized just how well Leigh knew the market, things moved fast. She was right on in everything she suggested to do. I would TRUST her with any house at any value to sell at this point. She is genus about the market. We made our goal in the sell of our house and we are able to complete what we set out to do. Let Leigh and her team take the stress off your back. We got great exposure, tons of showings and we sold for a fair price. Thank you Leigh and Virginia we could not have done this with anyone else.

    • In the spring of 2011, I made the decision to sell a second home that I owned in Charlotte, NC. For a variety of reasons, this was a very difficult and emotional decision for me, but once I made the decision it was no turning back. One evening I sat down in front of my laptop and did a Google Search on Real Estate Agents; Charlotte, NC; Short Sales; Experienced. The first website that popped up was Leigh Brown and Associates. I was so impressed by her professionalism, experience, and commitment to her clients. I sent her an email through her website requesting more information on her services. Within MINUTES I received a personalized response directly from Leigh. And that was the day that changed my life forever. Each buyer and sellers process will be unique and different. But, the one thing that is fundamentally consistent with Leigh Brown and Associates as your trusted real estate team is their professionalism, extreme attention to detail, A+ customer service, and commitment to your goals. The expertise that Leigh Brown and Associates consistently showed was like no other professional services I have ever received. Selling this home as a short sale was a very new process for me, but her team never left my side and gave me the continued confidence that this home would SELL and CLOSEand it did! There was never a time in my 7 month journey from official listing to closing that I did not feel that Leigh Brown and her team were not handling the sell of my home as if it was their only sell. They remained organized, persistent, consistent, and true professionals. I also live outside of the state of North Carolina and their swift and factual responses to email and phone were impeccable. There are not enough THANK YOUs and accolades that I can bestow on this fantastic team. When you are ready to buy or sell your home, only make ONE phone call or send ONE email, and send it to Leigh Brown and Associates. You will not be disappointed.

    • After meeting with a previous realtor who helped us buy our first house, we were less than impressed with that realtors promptness and knowledge of our local market, and particularly the way she dismissed our conversations because she knew what we wanted better than we did. Jamie and I decided we needed to reach out for another opinion, and we found Leigh Brown and Associates through Dave Ramseys Endorsed Local Provider program. We set a meeting at Leighs office, and she spent over an hour with us during the first meeting we went through every house listed for sale or that recently sold in our neighborhood and those immediately surrounding. We left with a crystal clear understanding of which houses were selling, in what price range, and why. As soon as we walked out of her office my wife and I looked at each other and knew the only decision was to hire Leigh and her team to sell our home. Once we were ready to list our home, Leigh came out, walked through the house with us and detailed everything she thought we needed to do in order to show the house as best we could. Ranging from repainting baseboards to deep cleaning carpets to rearranging furniture, to de-cluttering; we covered a lot of territory. We took some time and followed all of Leighs suggestions to prepare the house to list. When we officially put the house on the market Leigh brought in her marketing specialist, Virginia. Virginia prepared flyers for the yard, brochures to leave out for prospective buyers, and marketed our home on what seemed like every web site ever created. We had 3 showing requests the first 24 hours the home was on the market one of them even came back through for a second showing right away! Their marketing never died down, we averaged a couple showings every week the whole time our house was on the market. Leigh and Virginia kept in contact with us on a weekly basis with marketing reports showing how our house was marketed, real estate trends in our local area showing us how similar homes were being bought/sold, and other frequent communication on how to handle questions that we had from time to time. When we had an offer we wanted to accept, Leigh Strickland took over she handled all of the details from that point with regard to the contracts, scheduling the inspectors, and coordinating everything with the buyers agent. She did a great job preparing us for the closing, we never felt overwhelmed or in over our heads we always knew what to expect and how to handle each step of the process. We are also using Amy Gamble, another of Leigh Browns amazing team members, to work with us in building our new home. Amy has been nothing short of amazing, but Ill save that review for when that house is complete. Overall our experience was phenomenal, when we are ready to sell again, we will absolutely call Leigh Brown and her team. The entire process was exactly what we needed they constantly fed us information and answered questions we didnt even know we should be asking! Please leave a comment for me if you have any questions or would like to speak with me about our experience, I HIGLY HIGHLY recommend Leigh and her team! Thank you Leigh, please feel free to use me as a referral any (and every) time!!!

    • My family recently sold our home in the South End Charlotte area with Leigh. We are so pleased with the sale considering the economic climate. In addition the staff in Leigh's office could not have made the experience more pleasant than they did. I will continue to give Leigh's name as a reference!

    • Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills:Leigh and her team made our terrible short sale situation as close to a positive thing as possible. They were always on top of the ball, and helped our family transition as much as possible. In the end, she was able to get a short sale done in 6 months, with us owing no extra to the bank, and no other hitches. I felt totally supported and protected. Leigh is awesome and her staff are great teachers. I never felt stupid or confused; I felt like they gave me the power to take control of a very terrible and confusing situation.

    • Leigh, Marvin and I were overjoyed at the Sale of our home. Your staff was very professional, empathetic, patient and most of all they got the job done (very fast)!. Your Associates were fast, kept the buyers coming through our home and kept it in the forefront. I have worked with many Realtors in the past, but you far exceeding my expectations and have raised the bar. I can't wait to work with you again we purchase another home, nor can I wait to tell my freinds and family how wonderful our experience was with you and your office. Many Thanks and I hope you have a Prosperous New Year!

    • Leigh and her team ROCK!!! Thank you so much for all your assistance, guidance, and support during the sale of our home. We were so pleased with the entire process from listing it, showings, and the closing process your insights were invaluable. Did I mention that it was only 90 days from listing to closing and with close to our asking price?!? Only someone that understands todays market can deliver this success for their clients! Thank you so much. We are telling anyone that will listen to contact you if they are looking for a high octane team to sell their home : )

    • Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills:My husband and I are sticklers for superior customer service & follow-through. Mrs. Brown far exceeded our expectations with her prompt follow-up, knowledge of the real estate market and the incredible ability to merge our family home desires into a reality while meeting our budget. I highly recommend her professionalism and hope to work with her again.

    • Terra Patterson could not have provided a more comprehensive service when helping us buy a house for the first time. She was there with us from start to finish and was extremely patient and helpful. She and her team have house buying down to a science!

      - Jeff
    • Very good experience - exceeded expectations. Realtors Lawrence Mahool and Amy Gamble were extremely knowledgeable and professional. Lawrence presented an offer to us on the same day our house was listed. Amy demonstrated superior diligence and patience in showing countless homes to us, and helped us through the process almost on a daily basis. Amy and Lawrence were courteous and responsive, and did an excellent job in helping us handle the rigors of simultaneous selling and buying, resulting in us closing both our selling and purchasing transactions on the same day, one hour apart. Also kudos to Terra Patterson and Leigh Strickland in helping us navigate through the transactions. Would highly recommend Leigh Brown & Associates. Best real estate firm we have ever worked with......period.

    • Mandy Almond was awesome! we were new to the area, she showed us around, showed us houses in our price range and style, listened to us and didn't waste our time. She was available when we needed her and really did a great job for us.

    • Could not have gone better. Extremely pleased.

      - Fred Campbell
    • Leigh has sold one of our homes and helped us purchase two! She has helped several of my friends and family purchase homes in the area. I would not even think of going to another realtor. Leigh not only knows the area and selling aspect, but she's great with the lending and money part too! She's very honest and lets you know what she thinks in order to make sure you're happy and getting the best possible deal. She responds within hours, no matter what form of communication you choose. Negotionation is her expertise and doesn't let anyone pull one over on you!! Thanks for being such a trustworthy, hardworking individual!!
