Leah received her real estate license in 2004 and her Brokers license in 2008. Before getting into real estate, she attended the University of Georgia where she studied film and theatre studies. She is currently an Associate Broker with Greater Athens Properties focusing on residential real estate representing buyers and sellers on a day-to-day basis in the Greater Athens area.
Leah has lived in Athens since 1999 and is thankful to call Athens home for all the same reasons her clients have come to appreciate. Whether you love music, theater, great food, sports, community, or nature, the Athens area offers tremendous diverse options. What she loves most about being in real estate is the opportunity to meet new people from all walks of life. Relationships are the backbone of Leahs business, and her clients are her primary concern in every transaction. She strives to provide her clients with the highest level of customer service while staying up to date on our ever-changing industry. This philosophy has afforded her loyalty and referrals from past clients throughout her career.
Plus, her local market knowledge is a valuable tool for both buyers and sellers to guide in pricing, offers, negotiating, and market trending. She also takes a different approach to real estate, one that is built on personal touches, win-win deals, and positive results. More importantly, she listens and that means finding solutions that are tailored to you.
She has received many awards over her career including the Realtor of the Year award, the State and the Local Entrepreneur of the Year award, the Good Neighbor award, the Rising Star award, the YPN Young Achievers award, the Circle of Achievement award, the Circle of Distinction award, and the Circle of Honor award.
She has served on several state and local real estate associations and councils. She was the 2014 State President and the 2015 State Governor of the Georgia Womens Council of Realtors. She was the 2016 President of the Athens Area Association of Realtors. She served as a State Director of the Georgia Association of Realtors for many years. She is also a 2015 graduate of the Georgia Association of REALTOR Leadership Academy and continues advancing her knowledge of the real estate profession by attending various conferences, and classes and earning real estate designations including the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Council of Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), Military Relocation Professional (MRP), Short Sales and Foreclosure Specialist (SFR), and Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) among others. She considers education an important part of her role as a Realtor, and educating first-time homebuyers is one of her passions within the field.
Leah also lends her time and talents to her community. She has served on the board of directors for several local non-profits including Keep Athens Clarke County Beautiful (KACCB) and Athens Canine Rescue (ACR). While serving on the ACR board she personally rescued 13 dogs from local animal shelters and found their forever homes. One of her biggest accomplishments is her commitment to giving back to the community by volunteering her time and donating money each year to local charities.
