Leslie McDonnell has embraced the “pain is growth” concept. After working two jobs for 6 months at the onset of her career, Leslie has truly learned to enjoy the freedom real estate has to offer. Leslie’s children have watched and learned from her early days of struggling, the long hours Leslie spent as a single mom trying to hold it all together. Motivating herself on a daily basis to keep on going during tough times was something that came easy after being raised by a super-positive father. Knowing that it was up to her to support the family was a contributing a factor in her success. Leslie’s favorite thing to do is “pay it forward” to others in the business as she feels this was an integral part of her success as well. Now she is enjoying life with her immediate family consisting of 16 (including 6 grandchildren)!

I’ve known Leslie for nearly 40 years. She helped us buy or sell all six of our homes, those of our children, and those of too many friends to count. She is professional, fair, and very good at what she does. She knows the market better than anyone, and her experience proved invaluable when she  recently sold my home and for my price in a slow moving market.
