Lady, you are amazing. Sold my house and pushed for more than what those agents wanted to give. Helped me clean and organize. Dropped stuff off for me and pushed those vendors to do what they said they would. It was fun and I love my new house you helped me by way out of your service area so I did not have to look for another agent. You knew what I wanted and we got it done. Your family now and forever.W. Terry Seller/Buyer
Thank you for lowering your fees to get our offer accepted. Thank you for paying for the home inspection and termite inspection to get it done quickly. Thank you for understanding that my deposit should not be put at risk if I don't feel comfortable. Every time I called with lender complaints you where there for me and got on the phone and straightened it out for me. You explained documents when lenders could not help me understand. You were the best buffer I have experienced. I trust you like family. I will use you again when it's time to buy or sell. Thank you so much.A.Wouldo, Buyer
We can't imagine having a better home-buying experience than the one we had with Leah Stapleton. We were first-time home buyers and were nervous about the whole process. Leah is warm and personable but also extremely savvy and professional. When we first met her, she immediately put us at ease. She showed us houses for 6 solid months and never made us feel pressured to buy. She consistently told us that all she cared about was finding us a home that we loved. We eventually found a house that was perfect for us. Leah helped to get any issues resolved and pushed to get us credits toward our closing costs. We've been in our new home for 2 months now and we absolutely love it. It's the perfect home for us and we're so glad that we waited for the perfect one to come along. We love Leah and miss house hunting with her. We would highly recommend Leah Stapleton for anyone who's interested in buying. J. and B. Smith, First Time Home Buyers
