Get to know Ken Leath
I have been a Realtor for more than twenty years and have been in the housing industry for more than 30 years. As a Realtor I have served as the President of our local Trade association, the Elmira-Corning Association of Realtors. And, I have had the distinction of being named the 2016 Realtor of the Year, as I was back in 2003.
In 2010, with my partner Tricia DeCerbo, I was the #1 agent in the entire region (more than 265 Realtors) with more than $10 million in closed transactions for the year. I have, consistently, been a top producer in this market, successfully helping my clients buy and sell houses every year.
I have a unique set of knowledge that really lets me help my clients understand everything from the basics of the house through the financing, home inspection and closing. This puts Buyers and Sellers at ease, knowing that their Realtor is watching out for them.
As an example, I have an education and B.S. Degree from Penn State in Finance. That helps with understanding the financing of buying and selling a property. I have worked as a carpenter, electrician and as a General Contractor for two houses. I owned and operated a home inspection company and wes certified to do radon and environmental testing as well as radon mitigation. These are not the typical credentials of a Realtor.
Whether you are looking to buy, build, or sell, I can help make the process go a lot smoother. Give me a call and I'll be happy to sit with you and to formulate a plan together.
I specialize in listing homes for sale, and in the marketing and advertising of those homes. I also spend a lot of time with Buyers, and am very familiar with the ever-changing inventory of homes in this market.
When I work with first-time home Buyers I can guide them through the entire process, from choosing a house, to making an offer, understanding their home inspection and, eventually, through the closing. There is nothing better than buying your first house!
I also specialize in helping newcomers relocate to this area. I offer area tours, house hunting trips, and can take you to look at rental housing, schools, shopping, etc. You might even talk me into a trip to one of our local golf courses!
If you are in need of a Realtor who can knows about houses, who is well connected within the community, and who will work hard for you whether buying or selling a house, give me a call. I'm available 24/7 unless I'm with another client.
