My husband and I were so lucky Jeff was on duty when we randomly stopped by a Century 21. We were both very critical of realtors due to past experiences with them, but Jeff crushed our preconceptions to pieces. He's super knowledgeable of the market and was very upfront and honest when setting expectations for us,and we never felt pressured or ignored. When my husband had to leave town for work, Jeff accommodated by taking videos of the houses we looked at so he could see them too. Despite a tight time frame, Jeff found us the perfect first home for a great price... we couldn't have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a realtor in this area, you will not be disappointed. I just hope he's still here the next time we're in the market! Less ... More

My husband and I recently used Jeff to purchase a new home in Wilmington. We began our search with a new construction neighborhood and floor plan in mind. We viewed a handful of homes on the market in hopes that we may find something already constructed. While we did not find anything on the market that we were interested in, the process showed us that Jeff really takes the time to figure out what you want and to understand what features/locations are most important. When he then suggested we look at another new construction neighborhood that he thought we would like - we took his opinion seriously and viewed the neighborhood and some floor plans.....and he was right - we ended up under contract in the neighborhood within a week. Jeff went above and beyond throughout the process - from getting us under contract with additional incentives (beyond what the builder was advertising), to staying on top of the sellers agent to keep things moving. He is extremely responsive - most times answering emails, texts, or phone calls within minutes. I never waited more than an hour for a response when trying to contact him. He is ALWAYS working! Our biggest compliment to Jeff is that he extends his service until you are completely happy - not just until he gets his check. We had several outstanding issues with the builder of our home for more than a month after closing and Jeff's attentiveness, responsiveness, and motivation to get us what we wanted was the same after closing as before. My husband and I joke that we made him work harder after closing than we did before! If we are ever in need of a realtor in the future, he is the only person we will use. I would refer him hands-down to anyone that asks. Less ... More

I have lived in Wilmington since 1997, and have dealt with most agencies in town. In fact, I had constant dealing with various realtors between 2006 and 2012. In 2013, I met Jeff Lesley. What impressed me most about Jeff was his professionalism, knowledge of the market, and the fact that he wasnt pushing me to buy. In fact, in many instances I found myself asking his opinion of the property, and often he would say it was over-priced, or if looking at an investment, would recommend against if he thought it wouldnt cash flow or if the location or layout of the property would make renting a challenge. I learned Jeff has a degree in finance, and an MBA. He runs his real estate desk as a business, and his customer service is fantastic. Jeff was always available for me, and although I know he has many clients at any one time, I felt very important to him. I have since referred friends, family, and colleagues. Jeff will be the only realtor I ever use to purchase a home. When I list my home, I will use Jeff over any others, as his assistant (who is awesome too by the way) is also a professional photographer. My home will be well-marketed when I sell. I have referred friends, colleagues, physicians moving to town, and I would recommend meeting with Jeff before using any other realtor. Finally, I did not know Jeff prior to being referred by another realtor this year. I own a business dealing wth physicians and hospitals. I couldnt reccomend someone more highly, and in fact tried to hire Jeff to work in my business full-time. You will not be disappointed. Less ... More

Jeff helped me and my husband sell our home after trying fsbo and thru another agent. He brought us every offer for our consideration and advised us when we asked for it. He was thorough and diligent- he made us feel like we were his most important clients. We would definitely use him again for our future real estate needs and recommend home highly to others!

I was dreading the idea of looking at a house through a real estate agent because they are just interested in making money not your best interest. Then I met Jeff Lesley. What a breath of fresh air. Jeff was not pushy, honest and made me feel as if I was the only client he had. He had my best interest at heart and not just making a sell to put more bling in his pocket. I would recommend him to help you in purchasing a new or used home in a heart beat. He still calls to check to see how things are going since I purchased my home 6 months ago and to let me know that he is there if I need him. WOW!!!!! An agent can't get any better than that. I feel very fortunate to have him on my side. Less ... More

Couldn't have asked for better representation, especially as first time home buyers. Jeff went the extra mile for us every step of the way. Even my parents, who were sceptical of us buying without their help have been won over by Jeff and are planning to use him to look here in the future.

If you are looking for a home, Jeff is your guy! He is motivated, positive, and very knowledgeable. He responds to you as a customer and does not rush you to an underwriter before learning your needs. All of the paperwork was done seamlessly by the agent. We were able to close on a home in less than 30 days with no problems. We are thrilled with the level is of service Mr. Leslie provided and recommend him for anyone looking for a home. He is with century 21 off oleander and wrightsville ave. We were referred by a friend and truly amazed how exceptional he is as an agent. Less ... More

My wife and I would cdertainly recommend Jeff and we would engage his services again if needed. Our house went under contact with 10 days of listing and the closing had to occur within the next 30 days. Jeff was able to negotiate between us and the buyers under pressure and in a short window of time.

We have worked with many agents over the years and Jeff is an excellent real estate professional. He was a wealth of knowledge and experience that really helped us find the perfect house for a great price. Jeff knows a lot about the area, specific neighborhoods, and is well connected with area realtors. He wasn't pushy or overly aggressive. We were most impressed with his negotiation skills and in the end, we got a fantastic price! Thanks Jeff, we will definitely work with you again.

Having dealt with several brokers over the years, I can without any reservations say that Jeff Lesley was the best I have ever worked with. Our sale was complicated due to it being a short sale, and Jeff handled every hurdle (presented by others!) with ease and confidence and managed to keep me calm and confident that he had everything under control. No matter when I called, emailed, texted (and I do mean early in the morning, evenings after work), Jeff was quick to respond and answer my questions. Jeff made me feel as if I was the only client he was working with and I can honestly say that he is the quintessential broker, and I would want him to always be my agent. Less ... More

My wife and I have moved way too many times (this house Jeff helped us find was the 4th we've bought in the last 7 years!), but Jeff was hands-down the best Realtor we have ever worked with. He did truly everything right... He was always punctual and professional, he was amazing in his knowledge of the New Hanover County area (and we looked from Carolina Beach up to the Ogden area), and he was truly in tune with us and what we needed in a house. Did I mention the patience of a Saint as my wife and I changed direction numerous times on him - he re-directed immediately without complaint. When it came time to close the deal, Jeff was everything we needed and nothing we did not want him to be. Do yourself a favor and give Jeff a try. I had never met him before we started working together, but we now would consider him a friend! Less ... More

My experience with Jeff during the search and purchasing processes were absolutely phenomenal! He was extremely knowledgeable in all areas and was truly interested in helping me find a home that was just right for me. As a first time buyer I was quite inexperienced as to what the process would in tell and Jeff took the time to explain everything that would happen. He was also very patient in answering all of my MANY questions. He was absolutely professional and wonderful to work with! Jeff is a wonderful person and it shows through his work. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone!! Less ... More

I've worked with many realtors in VA and NC, bought and sold land and homes. Jeff is the most (overall) hard working and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend anyone buying or selling in Wilmington to use Jeff. He has always answered my calls and worked hard for me both buying and selling. Most importantly he is ultra professional.
