Get to know Leslie Hampton
I was born and raised in Boise and I'm proud to call this wonderful city my home! I've been a licensed Realtor since 1998 and I love what I do.
New Construction: I get great satisfaction out of working with buyers, sellers, builders and developers. A large part of my career has been spent working in new construction and onsite sales. I love promoting builders, their homes and the developments in which they build. It's fun and exciting to watch a new community take shape and to see new home owners select their new homes and move in. Recent additional training includes: New-Home Construction and Buyer Representation: Professionals, Product, Process (ABR) (May 2015)
REO: A large portion of my time has been spent working as a listing agent for Freddie Mac/HomeSteps. It's a privilege to represent Freddie Mac in the disposition of their assets. The goal of my team of Realtors and independent contractors is to put the best looking bank-owned homes (otherwise known as REOs) on the market. My listings look great starting at the curb and right on through the rest of the property! At the height of REO inventory in the Treasure Valley, I handled 75 assets at a time, and in various stages: eviction, prelist, under repair and listed. Recent additional training: Property Inspections (June 2012), BPO/Valuation (September 2012).
Short Sales and Foreclosure Listings: Due to the shift in the housing market, I have spent considerable time working with short sale and pre-foreclosure sellers as well as short sale buyers. I have obtained extra education in this arena and have recently earned the SFR designation. The SFR designation means "Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource" and is the National Association of Realtors' newest certification. I also work as a listing agent for Freddie Mac REO properties.
I've sold homes in all price points, all over the Treasure Valley and consider each and every sale a wonderful thing. It's tremendously satisfying to help sellers sell and buyers buy!

Leslie is an amazing Realtor. She is really knowledgeable and always meets the needs of her clients. Her honesty and integrity are one of the reasons she is in high demand.

My husband and I turned to Leslie late last year after another real
estate agent failed to sell our house during the three months we were
under contract. Leslie came highly recommended but we were still amazed
at the service she provided. From the very first day, she exceeded all
of my expectations (and I must admit, we have high expectations!).
She brought in a lot of people and her marketing materials were
excellent. We were especially impressed with the beautiful flyers and
all of the online buzz she was able to get for our property. She is very
Web savvy and that marketing helped a lot. She understands how to use
myriad sources to grab people, and her pictures and writing will put
your house in its best light. I feel like she did an excellent job of
representing why our house was so lovable without embellishing any
details or exaggerating its merits.
In spite of a falling housing market, she brought in more potential
buyers for us in the first week than our initial real estate agents did
during the entire three months-- and that was before the bubble burst!
She didn't waste our time with too many open houses or bringing by
people or real estate agents who weren't serious about buying. Less than
a month after signing on with Leslie, our home had sold and we were
moving out. The price we got was very fair given the economic reality,
and we were so relieved to not be sitting on the market any longer.
Leslie was also such a wonderful advocate and supporter during the
process. We really trusted her and appreciated her advice and support.
We would recommend her highly to anyone trying to sell in this tight
market. You may be surprised at your luck. If I still lived anywhere
near Boise, I would use Leslie for every transaction.
