Leslie has extensive knowledge, expertise and a keen understanding of the Austin real estate market, having a proven track record as a successful realtor for the past 24 years. Leslie excels in “going the extra mile” to serve her clients real estate needs, assisting with their buying, selling and leasing of both residential and commercial properties throughout the Austin metro area as well as the hill country communities surrounding Austin.
A native Texan, Leslie grew up the daughter of a prominent homebuilder in Houston, so she says: “I’ve had real estate in my blood from an early age!” Leslie and her husband have lived in Austin since 1985, are proud of their four grown children and five grandkids. The Vandivier’s have enjoyed being real estate investors themselves, having “flipped” properties in Austin since 1992. Resourceful and diligent, Leslie enjoys helping others find “fixer-uppers” with good rehab potential.
An Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), she’s comfortable with all types of buyers, from first-time homebuyers to seasoned investors, luxury home buyers and seniors. Leslie does the extra work to be sure her buyer clients are fully educated in the market areas they are interested in, from property tax issues, schools, recreation, proximity to their work and neighborhood pricing trends, empowering them to make a wise buying decision.
Leslie is also an astute listing agent. As an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP), Leslie assists sellers with often-overlooked details that can make a true difference in accurately assessing the home’s value and sales potential. Leslie is able to make recommendations and assist with home staging that result in the home selling for a higher price with often very little out-ofpocket cost to the seller.
Above all, Leslie is a seasoned real estate professional and now a broker with her own company. Leslie values her client and peer relationships and is committed to the highest standard of ethics. She endeavors to keep the client’s best interest in mind at all times and has developed loyal friendships over the years with her clients. Leslie’s business motto she strives to live by is: “people don’t care what you know ‘til they know that you care.” She’s excited about the momentum continuing to build in the Austin real estate market for 2018. It’s a great time to buy or sell in Austin and the Highland Lakes Area!
