Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty
“Leigh has such an in-depth knowledge of the Intown market. She also has some of the most experience and knowledge of new construction house sales; she is really hard to beat. She is always thinking two steps ahead to make sure the process goes smoothly for both the buyer and seller. She has done a great job helping sell the houses at La France Walk and helping less experienced agents successfully get their clients through the closing process.”

- Eric Kronberg, Developer Seller
“Leigh is the best agent we have ever worked with, and that includes six properties bought and sold over eight years.”

- Kevin Ament, Relocating Seller
“I have trusted Leigh both when buying and selling properties. She is more than ‘just another agent.’ Leigh is an energetic advocate who knows the true meaning of service. She takes care of everything, proactively removing worries before they become problems. Leigh also understands that ‘big picture’ goals are met only through dealing with ‘small’ details. Add to this an intense work ethic and joyful personality, and it is no wonder she has the client list she has.”

- Patrick Davis, Buyer & Seller
“We had a house that would only appeal to a specific buyer, despite being in a popular neighborhood on the Atlanta BeltLine. Leigh did not rely on those positives to sell our home. She was proactive and aggressive about making sure agents and buyers knew about our home. We had seven offers within 48 hours. She was very professional in handling our multiple bid situation and quickly getting us under contract with the second buyer when our original contract fell through. She has multiple clients but makes you feel like you are her highest priority.”

- Megan Holder, Buyer & Seller
“Leigh managed to get us three offers on our house in a two-day time period, in less than 60 days on the market … Leigh Hays is AWESOME! Now we can go to Maine and realize our dream!”

- Julian Rogers & Jim Beverage, Relocating Seller
“As an agent over the years, I had the pleasure of working with Leigh on several different transactions, each of which presented its own unique challenges and difficulties, but allowed Leigh to showcase her expert negotiation skills and diplomatic abilities in keeping both buyer and seller happy, truly resulting in a win-win for everyone involved. As Leigh’s former Managing Broker, I am extremely thankful and humbled that an agent of her caliber and experience had chosen to affiliate with our brokerage. Leigh’s knowledge of the Intown market is unparalleled, as is her expertise in transactions involving both new construction and resale properties.”

- Steven Busch, former managing broker of Keller Williams Realty Tampa
”Throughout the entire home-buying process and well after its conclusion, Leigh made me feel as if I was the only client in the world! Working with Leigh was a pleasure in every possible way. She understood succinctly what I was looking for in a home, and frequently kept me updated on available properties. As unexpected issues with the lender and seller made the purchasing process unduly complicated, Leigh worked extra hours to clarify problems as they arose. Whereas other agents may have shied away from such challenges, Leigh worked above and beyond her regular duties to ensure that I was able to move into my new home content, satisfied and on schedule! Moreover, Leigh contacted me numerous times after the closing to simply see how I was doing, remind me about important deadlines such as filing for homestead exemption and offered support in organizing utilizes or other necessities. I honestly don’t know where I would have been without her. Thank you so much, Leigh!”

- Jason Litzenberg, Buyer
“Leigh Hays was professional, thorough and aptly engaged during the 2011 sale of my Intown condominium and the subsequent purchase a standalone home in a nearby neighborhood. My experience with Leigh is stellar on all points. Selling a home is stressful, but selling a home in a depressed market can be mind-blowing. Leigh was with me each step of the way to provide suggestions and encouragement, which helped to ease my anxieties. For starters, she took some amazing photos of my home to advertise it well. She scheduled several open houses and a joint agent caravan with a neighboring home that was also on the market. My house had optimal visibility, and we had many showings before the home sold. Leigh actively encouraged me to price the condo to be competitive, and I still walked away with an incredible deal. After my positive experiences with Leigh during the sale of my condo, I didn’t hesitate to have her represent me as my buying agent. During my tour of optional homes, Leigh quickly learned what I was looking for (although I didn’t have it clearly defined in my own mind). She paid close attention to all details and displayed a vast knowledge of ‘home issues.’ During the negotiations on the home I purchased, Leigh was thorough and attentive. She worked closely with me to develop all negotiations and communications. She was forced to play hardball at times, but she did it with finesse and professionalism. I got everything I wanted, and I couldn’t be happier! Before selling my condo and purchasing a home, Leigh and I were acquaintances. We are now close, life-long friends.”

- Brian King, Buyer & Seller
“Leigh Hays is a literal dream come true. I recently bought my first home and I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Leigh was thorough, knowledgeable and incredibly personable. She assuaged any nervousness or anxiety I had about buying a home in a highly competitive market. Leigh took the time to get to know me and understand my lifestyle in order to tour properties that would be a good fit for me. She is amazingly knowledgeable about the Atlanta real estate market. Leigh personally answered all my questions and dealt with my ridiculous demands patiently and professionally. She was almost as invested in my homeownership as I was! When it was time to place an offer, I trusted her professional advice. She guided me through the process, explaining every step, every document and every signature. She reviewed all condo and HOA docs, identifying red flags and taking action to understand anything out of the ordinary. I’ve been singing Leigh’s praises for months and I recommend her without hesitation. I may even buy another place to hang out with her again!”
