Lesley Howard, a realtor with Landmark Realty Group, Inc., worked with us, Joy and Walter Clark, for a number of months in our effort to find a home in the Cashiers area closer to the club to which we belonged while selling our existing home. This project began last year with the consideration of one house that needed some updating and improvements. During that initial phase, Lesley was always, and I mean, always, available to answer questions, to provide professionals to offer ideas and estimates, and contact the owners to request a third, fourth, and fifth look at the house. She spent many hours sitting or answering questions while we brought an interior designer throughout the house to review possibilities. As this process began in earnest, Lesley was positive, helpful, and solutions-oriented at every turn. In the meantime, she kept her ears and eyes open for other possibilities. Contingent upon any purchase of a new home was the sale of our existing home. In no time, Lesley arranged for promotional materials to be effectively created, and various inspections and legal actions necessary to be completed. On the first day on the market, Lesley showed the house to a number of prospective buyers and shared the information with other agents who in turn showed the house. Less than two weeks later, our existing house was under contract, and we offered a contract on the new home. In the meantime, Lesley discovered another home that became available and did not hesitate to suggest we may have an interest in it. She always sought to explore options that might fit her clients' needs. Indeed, the second house provided a better option for us. There were some complications in the purchase of the second house, but Lesley never stopped working with the attorneys and the owner in our behalf. Even when taking well deserved time off to go fishing or play golf, Lesley took our calls and followed up immediately. In the end, we have moved into the new house and made it home with the least amount of trouble we have ever experienced in a move. We cannot thank Lesley enough for her professionalism, expertise, persistence in pursing our goals, and positive attitude throughout this change in our lives. I would most highly recommend Lesley Howard to any other client who is considering real estate business in the Cashiers area.
