On a more personal note:

 I am in a blended family which is a task in itself.  I have three great kids and Scott, my saint of a husband, has two just as terrific young adults.  So...if you need to bend someone's ear about your kids, chances are we've experienced something similar so I can assure you, you aren't alone!  Some things I enjoy when I'm not working are hiking, traveling, the Napa Valley, great restaurants (always love great recommendations), really "connecting" with someone usually in great conversation and seeing my kids getting along and having a great time.   If there's something else you'd like to know, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to answer whatever questions you may have.

My professional slogan for years has been:

"Exceeding Expectations, One Client at a Time"

And that's my favorite thing to do.

 

 

Client Testimonials: 

What can I say. Leslie was simply amazing I could not have asked for a better realtor. She was exceptional. Leslie has a great knowledge of the area. She also got a feeling of exactly what I was looking for, so we didn't waste time looking at places that didn't fit my needs. She also responded immediately to any of my questions and/or concerns. I will be happy to refer her to any one of my family or friends.  ~ Anita S., Livermore CA

We selected Leslie Alexander after interviewing three different agents. The primary difference between Leslie and the other agents was she listen to our concerns and questions about selling our home after living in the home for 23 years. She skillfully guided us thru the many steps of getting the   house ready to be sold, the open house process and the process of reviewing offers and selecting a strong offer for the sale of the home. We were kept informed of all of the required steps to sell a house in today’s market and when those steps needed to be completed. She adeptly advised of our options explaining the pluses and negatives of our options without pressuring us to go one direction or another. Overall we were very happy to work with Leslie.  ~ Steve & Robyn M., Livermore, CA

Leslie Alexander is a blessing. My mother had just lost her husband of over 50 years, was relocating to this area, and looking to find a new charming home in Los Gatos. The task at hand for the agent was to be responsive in finding suitable homes and be ready to strike when opportunity arose, but all the while remaining sensitive to the personal drama her client was going through, patiently determining when was or was not the right time to ‘press’, and sometimes just being a friend to talk to. Leslie exceeded expectations in every capacity. We found Leslie to be equal parts shrewd professional and empathetic friend. She did not just push what happened to be for sale at the time, but rather sifted through the market identifying candidates that fit the specific needs and wants of her client. Leslie was perfect for us and I imagine she’d be perfect for you.  ~ Frank L., Los Gatos, CA

 

Leslie is one of the best realtors my family has ever been blessed with. I have had 7 executive moves in the last 10 years and Leslie is a consummate professional. She blends an incredibly strong expertise in real estate with a very personal approach to the individual needs of the family. She quickly learned our needs and target markets and helped us find our home immediately. We were so lucky to have found her. -  Michael D., San Jose

No review could possibly do justice to Leslie. I relocated from the East Coast and suffered every possible headache with our agent there. Leslie was the complete opposite. She was organized, smart, thorough and knowledgeable. She spent endless time getting up-to-speed on what was important to my family, worked tirelessly to find options and coached us on every conceivable detail. In addition to being a great agent, she's a sincerely wonderful person. Because of Leslie, we found a great house in the exact neighborhood we desired.  You simply can't do better than Leslie.  -  Dave G., San Jose

My experience with Leslie could not have been better. I was a first time home buyer when I met Leslie in 2004. She worked diligently with me for over a year to find the right property for my needs. In the process I learned quite a bit about the market dynamics in the area and I received very helpful advice from her about home buying in general. She was always thorough and helpful throughout the entire process and she even gave me a great tip on an inexpensive contractor for painting and touch-ups as the sale was closing.  Besides her knowledge and experience, Leslie's personality made her a pleasure to work with. I found her to be a good listener and a good sounding board for my ideas. She was very accommodating to my busy schedule and ultimately her efforts paid off for me. I highly recommend her. -  Alex T., Los Gatos

Leslie Alexander is the consummate professional realtor.  She has helped us buy and sell several properties in the Bay Area, and she has always guided us with good advice.  She really knows her business, and she managed to get us great prices on selling and buying.  She even helped us buy a home in Maui!.  This is a case of a charming, bright, beautiful blonde who is an excellent business person!   -  Gayle C., Los Gatos, CA

Leslie is the most professional Realtor my husband and I have ever worked with and we have worked with a lot since we move around frequently in the corporate world.  She really pays close attention to what your exact needs are and works arduously and effortlessly with and for you.  She has extensive knowledge in all aspects of real estate and the area which is extremely advantageous. Her positive, bright and cheery disposition makes you so delighted  to work with her.  I only wish the Realtor world were filled with people like her.  Whether you are selling or buying, Leslie will do an outstanding wonderful job for you, I promise you!  -  Penelope D., Chicago

Leslie has a great sense of humor, and is so patient. The short sale process can be very stressful, and she kept it as good as it can be. We were informed every step of the way, and she did her utmost to make the process pleasant and understandable.  -  Carol E., Livermore

Leslie was my first experience with a Realtor, so I did not have much to compare her with in the profession. However with that said the experience was so exceptional that I truly don't believe there is any better Realtor in our greater Bay Area. She demonstrated vast knowledge of realty and would explain things with clarity answering my questions and concerns in simple terms that a first time buyer as myself could appreciate. I needed a quick purchase and she was able to find property in a high demand area and still meet my strict time line. For that I am most grateful and highly recommend her to all in the market whether buy or sell.  -  Carl A., San Jose

We were moving from the State of Maine and found the San Jose, CA market somewhat overwhelming.  Leslie spent the time with us and listened to our need for good schools and a nice neighborhood.  She worked hard to find the right area for us.  I have already recommended Leslie to friends and wouldn't hesitate to suggest her to anyone looking for a home.  She has an easy to use website and the all the qualities you want and need in a great real estate agent.  -  Becky S., Maine

I must tell you that I have never been so impressed with an "agent" in my life.  Mrs. Alexander is truly a professional and respresents Seville Contempo in the best way possible.  -  G.C, San Jose

Although we have known "our" agent for many years, if we were to sell another piece of property, we would definitely ask Mrs. Alexander to represent us....again, she was not our agent but we truly wish she was and maybe one day in the future we will make sure we have the pleasure of dealing with Mrs. Alexander, this time for us!  -  M&M Pratt, San Jose

Ms. Alexander is the consummate professional.  She is well organized and thorough in her presentations as well as "straight to the point" and forthright.  -  Chris J., San Jose

I would like to commend you for having such a person on your staff at Coldwell Banker.  -  Carol G., Saratoga 

Leslie is an excellent agent and absolutely amazing.  She really looks out for her clients and with her personal touch and commitment, made the sometimes overwhelming process of purchasing a home easy.  Leslie guided me through the endless paperwork and was always available to clarify or answer questions.  She has a great rapport with other agents and I was able to see properties before they came on the market.  Leslie has the integrity, patience, an the experience to find the right place for you.  I have already recommended her to several of my friends.  - Sonja K., Los Gatos

Leslie did an amazing job helping us relocate halfway across the country on short notice.  She coordinated so that we could view the houses on our wish list over the course of a weekend visit and was proactive in finding us additional houses to view that were new listings while we were in town.  She was responsive and very supportive during the whole process.  I will recommend her to friends!  -  Laura M., Mountain House

If you're thinking about listing or buying a home and you're not sure which agent to work with, I strongly suggest that you go with Leslie Alexander.  I have dealt with many real estate agents in Los Gatos to San Jose and surrounding areas but none came even close to Leslie.  She is one stop solution for all your real estate needs.  Leslie worked with me on each and every property that I was interested in a diligent manner and her commitment to accomplishing my goal was second to none.  She went above and beyond my expectations of what a real estate agent should be.  Leslie is very knowledgeable in real estate market, she understood my specific needs and provided the best possible solution for buying the properties in Los Gatos area.  She is as honest as real estate agent as there is out there and she is very loyal to her customers thus I highly recommend Leslie!  - Ted P., Los Gatos

Leslie takes the time to really listen to what her clients want and goes the extra mile to make sure they are happy.  She constantly provides great service.   Megan S., Felton
