Graduating from Appalachian State University with her Bachelor of Science in Communication with a Public Relations concentration and a double minor in Marketing & Business, she then enrolled and acquired her Real Estate License in 1999. License in hand, she launched her career as a Site Acquisition Agent for cell tower companies such as Verizon, Alltel, and AT&T.
After purchasing her first home in South Charlotte in 2001, her interests and career shifted toward residential Real Estate. Serving both Buyers and Sellers as an individual agent, Leigh collected various accolades; ABR-Accredited Buyer Representative, CNHS-Certified New Home Specialist, and CRS-Certified Residential Specialist.
Throughout her first 10 years as as individual agent, she averaged 4-6M per year without much leverage to speak of. By her 10 year agent in real estate (2010), Leigh had married and become a mother to 2 boys. With a goal and a need of finding leverage and building a Mega Team, Leigh joined Keller Williams South Park. The transition sparked her Leadership interests and opened up opportunities within the training and coaching sectors. The KW Models ignited her career growing passions of supporting other agents to develop their businesses and define their dreams, using her gifts in counseling, experience, and perspective. Leigh has been on the ALC Board five times in her tenure with KW and she has graduated BOLD twice. She has attended Coaching Skills Camp three times.
Leigh grew a Mega Team shortly after joining KW which consistently produced 20-23M in volume with consistent admin support. During this time, she was asked to develop the Productivity Coaching program at a Top 10 Market Center which she happily accepted and excelled at for 2 years, becoming part of the Leadership Team. This Leadership Team sat on a Panel at KWFR in 2017 regarding their PC program’s success. Present day, at 19 years of residential agent experience in Charlotte, she has found her niche as the Director of Sales and Real Estate Coach for the same Mega Team she started in 2010 – On The Move Charlotte. Her Team currently has 3 agents in production, a transaction coordinator, and 2 administrative assistants in addition to Leigh.
