Happy Clients Are The Key To Our Success!

Chris Evans was excellent to work with! He treated me with patience and was diligent in finding what I was looking for! He treats you like family! I will be using him again in the near future for my specific needs, when I am ready. You cannot go wrong with Chris!

- Russ H.

Having bought and sold many houses in our lifetime, we have a lot of experience with realtors. Chris Evans is the best we have ever worked with. He helped us price our house right and appropriately for the current market. He went the extra mile in all aspects. His communication is second to none. His prompt follow-up is a true gem in today’s world. We wouldn’t consider using anyone else in the future for our buying and selling needs. Douglas hit the jackpot when he became part of your organization!!!

- R. McKenna

We worked with Chris Evans as both sellers and buyers and he has been AMAZING! In addition to everything that goes into selling and buying real estate, Chris also helped us navigate the changing real estate market and unique circumstances of the pandemic. Over the past 25 years, we’ve bought and sold numerous houses across four states and Chris is by far the best agent we’ve worked with on either side of the experience. We met Chris by chance at an open house but we found a fantastic agent we’re lucky to call friend!

- Richard & AJ W.

Thank you Chris. When this is all said and done I will crawl over a mile of cut glass to climb up a tree and tell anybody who will listen that you are a rockstar realtor. We will never work with another realtor.

Shannon did a great job! She listened to our opinions and never pushed for a decision. She let us take our time and find our dream house. We were more than a job to her. I will use her anytime we buy or sell a house. Highly recommend!!

We had the privilege of working with Leslie twice! In 2009, the year we decided to buy a house, we were a bit lost in how the whole process of what to do and how to go about doing it. Thankfully someone recommended Leslie to us and as soon as we started working with her, our worries, concerns, and confusion of the process disappeared. She was extremely patient with us while we went from house to house until we found our first dream house. As soon as we walked in the front door, we knew it was the house for us. Leslie was awesome through the whole process: offer, negotiation, home inspection, etc. Her knowledge and skill allowed us to be completely relaxed during a time that usually gets people worked up and stressed. There is no way we would've gotten the house without her. 

We were so impressed with her work and how she took the time to really get to know us that we decided to use her when it came time to sell. The only reason we decided to sell is because we were relocating to another city. Leslie came by, took a look at our decorations, etc. and gave some suggestions on what to do as far as staging, packing things up, etc. Once we had everything in order she came by and took amazing photos of the house and yard. She listed the house a few days later and it was under contract in less than 24 hours! She worked with us through the selling process just as she had through the buying process and was able to get our full asking price!

Choosing Leslie as our real estate professional was the best decision we made! We couldn't have gotten our first home without her and we certainly couldn't have sold it without her as well. If it was possible to have Leslie work with us when we're ready to buy in our new city, we would ask her in a heartbeat! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Triangle area!

Having never purchased a home before, I had no idea how to do anything, what to expect, or generally what I was getting into. Shannon was a great educator and a great agent. She knows Raleigh like the back of her hand and it was her intuition and skills that actually found the home we fell in love with and purchased! Even while she was enjoying vacation, she always answered our emails and questions. She explained the process very well and generally made sure we were always confident and comfortable in our decisions. If you want the most painless experience possible, go with Shannon! I recommend her to anyone and everyone!

- Ashley Felton

We have used Leslie to sell two properties and buy one. She was the most hard--working agent we have ever encountered. She helped navigate renovations to a run down property before sale, steer the purchase of a condo and, years later, facilitate the sale of that condo when conditions changed. She does whatever it takes, whatever the client needs, and whatever the conditions dictate. She is and will remain our go-to agent.

- Becky & Ed

I'm a first time home buyer and Shannon helped my wife and I tremendously. I was anxious about the whole process and Shannon put my mind at ease. She answered questions almost immediately through text, email, or phone call. I was kept up to date of the process and given realistic expectations of what to expect. I was not shown any house that did not fit our wants or needs. She is great!

- Mike Spears

Leslie is fabulous! I would highly recommend her to anyone! You are making a mistake if you don't go with her.

We were fortunate enough to be able to work with Leslie twice in the past few years. She helped us purchase our house in 2011. As first time home buyers, she was very informative and helpful. She went above and beyond for us. She honestly makes purchasing a house easy because she takes care of so much for you. We had such a great experience that we asked her to help sell our house this past summer (2014). We had to get our house on the market quickly due to a quick relocation move out of state. From the first email I sent her to the very last, she was always on the ball with everything! Leslie not only is knowledgeable in what she does but she is very quick to give you responses , honest and hardworking. No matter what -she always has her clients best interest. She was great at helping us getting our house ready to be put on the market & has many great resources. Furthermore, since we moved out of state right before we listed the house, she did a lot of work for us that honestly should of been my responsibility but she took the initiative anyways. She watched over the house for us an again went way above and beyond! Selling a house remotely with Leslie was easy. We sold our house in record time and got a great price for it! So happy :)

Fast forward a few months and we now just bought a house in Georgia. Unfortunately, we didn't think it would be realistic to ask Leslie to move to GA with us to help us here but we wish we could have! :) We often found our selves talking about how we wish our relator here (who is suppose to be top in the nation) was more like Leslie! I can't recommend her enough!

- Ryan & Vanessa

Leslie made moving from out of state so easy!! She first had us write out our wish list for our new home and I remember her saying don't worry how long the list is, be as detailed as possible! We didn't hold back, the list was long and she went over everything we envision for our new home. We had to fly in from out of state and she had each day all lined up and organized. By day three she found us our dream home and made the whole progress a breeze! We have been here almost 6 months and we couldn't be happier!! We have worked with other realtors in the past and have never had such a flawless experience with a true professional!! We highly recommend Leslie Douglas!!! :)

Leslie was amazing. She helped me buy my first home solo, and even when there were snags, she was totally in my corner, fighting for me. She definitely knows her stuff too, and walked me through it, every step of the way. I never had any doubt that she did her absolute best for me, and I love my new home! Thanks Leslie!

- Martha

Leslie was incredibly committed to helping me and my family find our perfect home. We had some very specific details that we wanted in our new home, and Leslie was able to help us search for and find exactly what we were searching for. Leslie also helped us to sell a rental home during a difficult time for the selling market. We were so happy with the service she provided to us and would certainly recommend her to any of my friends and family.

- Pam

My wife and I were looking to buy our first house in 2013. We had a lot going on in our lives at the time, and it seemed like we'd never find the right place for our new family. My wife contacted Leslie Douglas after months of looking at houses on her own. Within a week we had seen 2 great houses, and had signed on our first home! It is in a great GROWING area in Holly Springs, and is perfect for the two of us. Leslie handled the entire process perfectly, taking the pressure off of us and guiding us along the way. She was very knowledgeable of the whole process, and helped us make the best decisions. We would highly recommend her to anyone, and will more than likely be reaching out to her again when the time comes for us to move!

I have been a residential Builder as well as Commercial Builder. I have known and worked with Leslie since her beginning. What truly impresses me the most about her, is she has NEVER lost her roots. She knows how she got here and where she wants to go, but EVERY client is her most important client. In todays business environment, Leslie is a rare flower indeed. If she gives you her word and says she is going to do something, consider it done. Those are traits that cannot be bought, only taught, believed in and carried by the heart. A major reason why Leslie is my "Go To" person, when I have real-estate needs.

- Rod

As first time home buyers we had a LOT of questions! Leslie was there for us months before we started looking answering our questions about the whole process. She fought for us! When we went to closing she wouldn't let us sign until she saw paperwork proving a certain job in the home had been completed...I was ready to throw in the towel and just sign but Leslie was our rock and made sure everyone stuck to their word. We will definitely look to her when it's time to sell and buy our next home!

Leslie Douglas is the best realtor I have ever worked with. She went above and beyond to help me and my husband find our current home. I was not an easy client to take on because I was selling my house in Massachusetts and I had less than two weeks to find a new home in North Carolina. Naturally I was stressed. Leslie took on the challenge and made the whole process stress free from beginning to end. She showed us true southern hospitality and made it fun to explore new towns and find the right spot to settle down. It was important for us to have a home that we love, but also an investment for our future. Leslie made it possible for us and we now have a new friend and a realtor for life.

- Katie & Chris

Leslie's incredible talent, hard work and diligence lead to the sale of our house. She not only provided a clear outline of the entire process, keeping us in the loop 24x7, but essentially made this happen, and in the end even acted in project manager fashion by pulling together a range of contractors, to get work done before closing. She embodies 'going the extra yard for the client'. We are beyond impressed. Regards, Johannes

Dear Leslie, Thank you so much for all you have done to make this house-buying process a cinch! We could have never done it without you! You are really awesome at what you do & we are so happy you were our realtor! Thanks again!

- Amanda & Joe

Leslie, Yes, the new "chapter" in life has been extremely physically & emotionally hard, but I could not have possibly made it without you. There are not enough words to express my appreciation to you for making it easier. You are outstanding in your profession & go above & beyond. I admire you for that and still do so much volunteering in the community. The album is beautiful & I will cherish it forever. That was so thoughtful. See you soon.

- Gail

Dear Leslie, Many many thanks to you for ALL the blood, sweat & tears (& patience & miles) required to make this house happen. We are really excited about the final result. Please come & visit sometime & have lunch. Much love & thanks.

- Diane & Marshall

(An email written to Leslie's Managing Broker, Josh Swindell)

Dear Mr. Swindell,

I wanted to tell you what a treasure you have in Leslie Douglas. My husband and I are relocating to the Raleigh area from Pennsylvania and have bought and sold many properties over the years and have had to relocate in several of these moves. We have never met or worked with a realtor as hardworking, thorough, organized, honest and pleasant as Leslie. She is truly amazing.

We know, without a doubt, that she has out best interest in mind and will work as hard as she possibly can for us. We will continue to use Leslie for all out real estate needs and will recommend her to anyone who needs a Realtor once we have relocated. 

- Peter & Becky B.

Dear Leslie, Thank you so much for helping us purchase our 1st house! You made it fun & easy, while never pushing or pressuring us in any way. When all we could see were the roadblocks, you were there to help us navigate with ease. You helped us understand the process, answering all of our questions with complete patience. Now the experience is over, don't become a stranger! You have found your calling & I will continue to refer you to our friends & family for years to come. We will never forget you & all that you have helped us accomplish! Thank you!

- Jessika H.

Dear Leslie, WOW! I don't even know where to begin to thank you for all of your hard work getting my house sold & moving me into a new place so quickly and with practically no problems. I couldn't believe the house was under contract in 9 days! It was definitely all of your preparation & time spent helping me get the house ready to sell that made all the difference. Even though the closing on my new house was delayed, I didn't even have time to get upset about what happened because you had accommodations for me & all expenses, including my moving & storage, covered by the builder. THANK YOU for everything. I couldn't have made it through this without you!
