Paul H.(Buyer, 2018)
My wife and I were looking to buy our first home, so my father referred me to his real estate agent. Enter Leigh Anderson! We could not have been more fortunate to have her as our agent. My wife and I, being first time homebuyers, really didn't have a clue what we were doing. Leigh held our hands throughout the entire process. She taught us what to look for in terms of resale value. She only showed us homes in good neighborhoods within our budget. She even waved a red flag when my wife and I got too excited about a home that we no doubt would regret purchasing. There are so many things involved in buying your first home it can be overwhelming. On more than one occasion Leigh would talk with my wife on the phone for an hour, helping her check everything off the do list. Leigh found my wife and I the perfect home, and helped us negotiate the best price possible. If we ever decide to move, she will be the only agent we call. -Paul Harrison

I first met Leigh when she showed me a home she had listed, that I wanted to purchase, once our house sold. At that time, I was very impressed with how extraordinary she was at following up with me on our own sale status, which made me feel like she authentically cared, and was really trying to help me get the home I wanted. Although that wasn't the house we ultimately purchased, when the time came to put in an offer, I was confident that she was the realtor I could trust and wanted to work with, and she was extremely helpful and encouraging throughout that process. Purchasing was somewhat of an emotional roller coaster for us, but she assured us we would get a great house, and again, her diligence at staying in touch with us, was superb, and utimately an essential key to us getting our perfect house. She was always very attentive and prompt to respond to all of our many messages and questions, and to obtain the answers we needed. At the time of closing on our new home, her involvement didn't suddenly stop, but she continued to be quick to offer her assistance and respond to our questions. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Leigh as an outstanding realtor for anyone else buying or selling in the area. I could say so many things about how marvellous Leigh was to work with, and how much we appreciated her integrity, knowledge, and professionalism, but perhaps the highest compliment is the fact that I not only found an excellent realtor, but I discovered the kind of person I would also choose as a good friend.

Leigh was referred to me from a good friend of mine who said she was great, amazing, dedicated, etc....the usual compliments one gives. Well they were not lying. I had to sell my house for personal reasons and I don't think I could have gotten through such a tough time if it wasn't for Leigh. I felt she was more of a friend than an agent, so caring and supportive throughout this really difficult time in my life. Leigh was so patient with me and I never felt any pressure to buy. I felt like she took me under her wing,. Leigh was always available to drive me to look at properties - how amazing is that. Unbelievably knowledgeable, compassionate, knows her job inside and out and is an extremely hard working woman. Leigh was so up front if a property or area wasn't for me....she knew the style of house that was for me. The property that Leigh found for me, I couldn't be more happier. Throughout my whole process of selling and buying, Leigh couldn't have done a more fantastic job. I would like to thank my friend for introducing me to this amazing Real Estate Agent called Leigh Anderson.
Deb C.(Seller, 2018)
Dear Leigh, Here are some of our insights about you: We first met at the seller’s property and we felt a connection, confidence and honesty at first sight. You made us feel comfortable and answered all our questions. You also seemed very knowledgeable and offered to help us at anytime including connecting us with reliable service providers whenever necessary. The fact that you were honest, reliable, not pushing for an unnecessary bid and fast on the offer so we wouldn’t loose the opportunity. Plus all the clarification and tips you provided as we were first time home buyers. ¨ absolutely Would you recommend you to your friends and family? We loved that you came by after we moved and you brought a gift, that was very thoughtful and kind. Thanks for everything!
Sharon A.(Seller, 2017)
I was selling a unique business. (Fishing camp in northern Ontario). Leigh was awesome she really did her research. She provided me with all the similar listings in the area over the last several years. Leigh also put together an amazing package for potential buyers. The package included photos and all of the property particulars. Leigh also made a number of great suggestions and had solutions for the issues that arose during the transaction. Leigh was always available to answer any questions or to address any concerns. Our business sold very quickly. The transaction was seamless, thanks to Leigh.
Curtis & Paula M.(Buyer and Seller, 2017)
My husband Curtis and I have now known Leigh for 18yrs. We were first introduced and recommended by a friend when buying our first home and we are so glad we met her! Leigh is very professional and yet so kind hearted and has always been so informative with all of our questions. To date we have bought and sold 3 houses with Leigh. Each and every time she has proven her knowledge of the housing market values and shows us comparables for each of the neighbourhoods we've looked at. For each transaction Leigh was able to navigate us through the negotiations with great ease and confidence, and now with my son looking for his first home I feel confident that she'll help him like he was her own.
Mahmoud Z.(Buyer, 2017)
My wife and I had recently immigrated to Canada and we chose Durham Region to be our next home. Having almost zero knowledge in the real estate market, Leigh Anderson educated and helped us through every step of the process. Leigh was available in almost every part of our transition and by far exceeded our expectations. She made sure we settled in the perfect home and went above and beyond in helping us find a school for our child. We are very happy with Leigh and it was an absolute pleasure to have met and formed our relationship with her. We would recommend Leigh to anyone who is looking at real estate. She will amaze you with her level of expertise and professionalism.
Robin T.(Buyer and Seller, 2017)
Leigh was referred to me by a mutual friend and has been a blessing right from the start. I felt confident that I was in good hands as she explained each step in the process of selling my home and in buying a new one. I had many, many questions and a lot of anxiety but she was always available to ease me through the journey no matter what time of day or night it was. I would recommend Leigh to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent that is not only there to help sell or buy a house, but is also there for what can be an emotional experience full of both anxiety and excitement.
Dan C.(Buyer and Seller, 2017)
When my partner and I ended our long-term relationship, we needed to sell our family home and to find two new homes respectively. We turned to Leigh without hesitation, given her strong track record of success and intimate knowledge of the communities within which we were looking to move. In rapid succession, Leigh helped us sell our home and directed each of us to fantastic new homes. Leigh was caring and supportive during what was a difficult time for us, and took away a lot of the worry as we completed new home purchases. Her real-estate knowledge and ability to intermediate successful home buying and selling transactions is unrivaled in my opinion. I know Leigh is very involved in the community and gives back her time and energy to make the areas she serves better places to live. I highly recommend Leigh
Silvana J.(Seller, 2016)
When we decided to sell our house, we interviewed several real estate agents. Leigh had been recommended to us by some friends, but we felt it important to hear different opinions about the value of our house and to find out what we could expect from our realtor. She quickly helped us feel comfortable with the process and her commitment to helping us get the most out of the sale of our home. Leigh was professional and extremely knowledgeable, yet also kind and reassuring when we needed it. We were thrilled with the outcome and highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for an agent. Thank you, Leigh!
Kelly C.(Buyer, 2015)
My fiancé bought his first house with Leigh. What started out as a stressful endeavour turned into a much more delightful experience once she stepped in. She takes the time to figure out what her clients need both functionally and financially. Now that we are looking to upgrade our housing situation she has been very patient with us. Showing us properties and not pushing us into situations that we are not comfortable with. She is very knowledgeable in her field and I truly don't know what we would do without her guidance. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for agent that they can trust.
Chrissy M.(Buyer, 2015)
Leigh Anderson found my family our forever home a year and a half ago. It took over two years of looking at houses though, because we were happy in the current house and neighbourhood we were in. And if we moved, we wanted everything we had plus a pool, a bigger backyard and a finished basement. Leigh never once made us feel pressured to buy or made us feel bad for taking her time to show us another house. We went through the offer process a couple of times with Leigh too but because we also didn’t want to get into a bidding war, so we lost out on a couple of good homes. But things always happen for a reason and Leigh was patient with us. One day I got a call from her and she said she had the perfect house of us, our “forever home”. We did one walk through and she was right, this was the one for us!! Leigh was amazing and professional at every stage of the house buying process. She was always positive and calm and put our needs first. She helped stage our house to sell and she was a tough negotiator when it came down to the final sale. She was very knowledgable about mortgages, real estate lawyers, house inspections, etc. Any question or problem I had, Leigh was fully capable and always willing to help us. And on moving day, we were surprised with a kitchen island full of pool toys!! Thanks Leigh Anderson!
Kevin S.(Buyer and Seller, 2015)
We had known Leigh for many years, so when the time came to list our home and buy another we decided to have Leigh represent us. The top attributes that I really appreciated in Leigh were that she was very professional and very knowledgeable. I had complete trust in her. I would and have, without hesitation, recommend her to family and friends. Buying/selling your home is a very stressful time. I found it comforting having Leigh as my agent, because her ability to do a good job was one thing I didn't have to worry about.
Janice B.(Buyer and Seller, 2015)
Leigh has been our real estate professional for our last 3 real estate transactions, and we highly recommend her abilities. Leigh is extremely knowledgeable in both current market conditions and the real estate industry in general. She takes time to research both the area we are interested in purchasing a home, as well as the market and competition in the neighbourhood we are selling our home in. Leigh is very friendly, professional and hard working. She is a skilled negotiator, always working in our best interest. Leigh is creative and able to effectively stage a home highlighting best features. Her marketing ideas are revolutionary and very successful. We appreciate that Leigh responds to our questions and requests immediately, whether by phone, text or email, any day of the week and almost at any time of day! Leigh is very trustworthy, having spent much time in our homes when we are not present. We have every confidence that she will care for our home and pets while showing it to clients. And Leigh continues to provide excellent service long after the transaction has been formed up. She truly sees relationships as very long term, not simply by one transaction at a time. We have been extremely pleased with the results Leigh has provided.
Jennifer M.(Buyer, 2014)
My husband and I had just started looking for our first home and we were so lucky to have been introduced to Leigh! She came highly recommended from a close friend! Any questions we had were answered quickly and efficiently. In just a couple short weeks we found our first home and couldn't have been more happy! We thank you for the time and effort you spent with us, and thank you for helping us find a home we love!
Orla K.(Buyer, 2011)
Myself and my family moved to Canada eight years ago. Leigh Anderson was our Realator we found Leigh very professional and honest and knew exactly what we wanted. My husband has very discriminating taste in what type of home he wants to buy, he is very particular and Leigh was able to tick every box. Leigh was well able to meet the needs of my husband and I and our family.she exceeded our expectations. Leigh has assisted us and has been our realtor twice. I would not hesitate in using Leigh again if the need arises in the future.
Tasha A.(Buyer, 2011)
My husband and I chose Leigh to help us with buying our first house. We chose her because she was so down to earth and honest and truly felt like part of the family during our hunt for our dream home. She helped us go through many houses, never letting us wavier from what we truly wanted. She helped us navigate a sellers market and bidding wars and inevitably helped us to find our first house and when our family grew our second home too! Leigh is amazing, kind, patient, thoughtful and she really knows her stuff, I would most defiantly recommend her to my friends and family. Thanks for everything Leigh!
Maura M.(Buyer and Seller, 2010)
As a repeat customer for Leigh it is my pleasure to recommend her to any persons wishing to sell and/or purchase a home. Leigh represented me on two real estate transactions. She helped me receive the best price for my listed properties, as well as, my purchasing properties. Leigh listened to my needs to find the perfect home for me. She gave 110% of her time and energy into finding my next new home. She has extensive knowledge and experience and I completely trusted her judgement. I loved my last home and I really love my new home! Thanks again Leigh!
Donna F.(Buyer and Seller, 2009)
My Husband and I chose Leigh because she was confident, knowledgeable, dedicated 110% and reliable. As an agent, we felt fully tended to and cared for in every aspect of our difficult Commercial Sale. It was a very stressful, long process to sell our Property and Business, but Leigh made us feel completely at ease, helped us through all of the mounds of paperwork and difficult processes with great ease. She accomplished the endeavor with professionalism and confidence. There isn't one thing she could have done better. The sale was just perfect. We would always recommend Leigh to our friends and family!!! She thrives to achieve and measures up to one of the greatest agents to be found.
Sherri B.(Buyer, 2008)
Due to a job transfer from a different city, we found ourselves needing an agent in the Durham Region. Lucky for us, our agent did her homework and suggested Leigh. My Aunt was also transferring and we decided to travel together to meet with our agents, me with Leigh, her with an agent that had a house listed she was interested in. So much was running through my mind, the move, the kids adapting to a new city and school, my new job. It was a very emotional time but all my worries and fears subsided after meeting Leigh in the boardroom to plan our day. She has such great energy and confidence that I felt immediately at ease. She came prepared with a list of homes that had all of the key points we were looking for!! I was handed a list with room to take notes, as she made it clear that I would have a hard time trying to remember the points of each place. “Just jot down key points,” she said, “like it smells like basement, or great yard”. She educated me on neighbourhoods and was mindful of the schools the kids would be going to. Unfortunately our home wasn’t found that day but as I went to pick up my Aunt I felt extremely confident that Leigh was on the right track and it was just a matter of time. That was made abundantly clear after hearing of my Aunts day with her agent. The lady had nothing more to show her than the house she had found online. After hearing of my day, she quickly converted to team Leigh! It was just a matter of a couple of weeks before She found both myself and my Aunts perfect homes. About ten years later my husband and I were separating. It was a very emotional time and so many decisions needed to be made that would require a rational, business savvy approach. Leigh was my first phone call, I needed someone I could trust, that would know what the best next steps would be. She made a very difficult situation a lot more bearable. I appreciated not only her advice, direction but also her encouragement and support. I have stayed in contact with Leigh and have asked advice from time to time, and referred friends when I can. Never once did I ever feel that I was part of a business transaction. Leigh understands the importance of building relationships and listening to the customers needs.
Charlene W.(Buyer and Seller, 1999)
We were first referred to Leigh back in 1999, when we were looking to buy a new home and sell our existing one. We hit it off right away as she is so friendly and professional. She was patient with us and listened carefully to our wish list. Leigh would print off the new listings, deliver the envelope to us, then set up our chosen showings for that evening. Her knowledge and negotiating tactics were outstanding as she cleverly negotiated the purchase of our new home. She was able to sell our existing home in a just a few days and the transition was flawless. Years later, we decided to downsize and purchased a private sale home. She listed our current house and once again it was successfully sold. When Leigh says “helping is what I do” she really means it. I have called upon Leigh many times since then to help me in other real estate matters and she is always willing to assist. I also look forward to reading her monthly newsletters and enjoy being updated about current market trends and community events. If you are looking for a passionate, highly skilled, knowledgeable, and very dedicated real estate agent then Leigh Anderson is the agent for you!
Rhoda W.(Buyer and Seller, 1995)
Leigh has been selling and buying my homes for over 20 years. I would never use anyone else. Her expertise, honesty, and hard work has paid off for me every time. Helping you is really what she does.
