I obtained my Real Estate salesperson license in August 2005 and my Broker's License in 2010. During that time I focused on Luxury Homes, Lake Properties, REO Properties, First Time Home Buyers and Short Sales. In 2011 I moved to Keller Williams Realty as a Team Leader where I focused teaching, consulting and training agents and how to take their business to the next level, as well as, handling the role of broker within two different market centers. It was a great experience and exposed me to some of the most creative and successful minds in the industry. While my role as Team Leader was fun and insightful, I am ready to get back in touch with my buyers and sellers. I have a true passion for Real Estate and helping people with the biggest investment of their lives! So, I have made the decision to bring all my skills, back to serve you, your friends, and colleagues as they make the largest investment of their lives. I will present a more powerful platform to list, market and sell properties, effectively and taking my work with my clients to the next level.
My mission is to professionally deliver first-class service in every aspect of buying and selling Real Estate. Additionally I am committed to being on “your side” beyond the sale with my core values of honesty, integrity, superior service and a contribution back to our communities.
Since I started my real estate career in August 2005 I have specialized in the following areas:
Lake Lanier Specialist
First-Time Home Buyers
Luxury Residential Homes
Active Adult Communities
|We worked with Leighann on our last home purchase, she was fantastic and very helpful at finding a perfect fit for our family in a short amount of time. She is very professional, courteous and accommodating to her customers, I highly recommend her|
|Ms. Leighann Russell has listed two of my rental homes for sale in the last 6 months. She sold both within two weeks of listing. Her market analysis was spot on easy to understand. The method of listing demonstrating features and benefits of the homes was well done and the photography was exceptional. Much detail to the way she approaches the sale of a home. While both buyers were agent represented, I watched her work closely with the buyers and agents in completing the transaction. Her interpersonal skills leads me to believe that not only is she a dynamic listing agent, but also would be a tremendous asset to anyone looking to buy a home as well.|
|My husband and I have been extremely satisfied with Leighann Russell. She is very knowledgeable and very professional. We completed the closing on one of our homes (without any problems) and she currently has our other home on the market. Leighann is always extremely responsive and always willing to help in any way she can.|
|Leighann was wonderful to work with! Always honest when we needed it, and took the time to check in with us during the selling/buying process. Would definitely use her again or recommend her to a friend!|
|Bryan & Jennifer Rodriguez|
|When we decided to list our home, we "interviewed" multiple organizations and parties. Leighann from the get-go was prompt, organized, and a professional. Before my wife and I met with her, she had already done her homework of what our house could go for prior to our meeting, and brought some documentation to review to help us figure out what to list for. During the sales process she was very responsive and worked well with scheduling viewings of our house. We would HIGHLY recommend working with Leighann Russell to help sell or find your next home!|
|Leighann is an incredibly goal oriented person. Imagine if selling your home or finding you the perfect home becomes her next goal? She will make it happen! Her experience, hard work, and her genuine concern for others makes real estate a pleasant experience. The worst mistake I made in selling/buying a home is not begging her to be my agent.|
|Leighann was really great to work with. She was so patient and knowledgeable about the real estate process.|
|Leighann, you did a wonderful job on selling my home so fast. You answered all my questions, kept me from loosing my cool many times and you were very polite and remained cool headed when dealing with me cause I'm not a easy person to deal with when things don't go as I planned it in my head. I have and will still continue to refer your skills and knowledge to other sellers/buyers. You truly are the best Realtor ever. Thank you so much.|
|Leighann was a great help in locating, negotiating and closing on our Lake Lanier property in July 2013. She gave us plenty of personal attention, support and just the encouragement we needed to move forward at the right time. Her knowledge of the Lake Lanier community is a real asset for clients, and she has been very helpful to us pre- and post-closing in identifying local resources for various things we needed done on the property. We highly recommend Leighann to anyone buying or selling on the lake!|
|everal years ago my wife and I purchased a house for her mother in Suwanee Georgia. In January of 2007 we put the house up for sale. Our original contact left the agency and Leighann Russell became our agent sometime in the second half of 2007. Two factors have made the sale of our house very difficult. One is the stagnated real estate market in general and the second is that we live in the northeast. As a result we have had to depend on our agent a tremendous amount for information on the local market and the maintenance on our house. Leighann Russell is very knowledgeable about real estate. She is unselfish in her approach to the transaction, and professional in every aspect of her work. If I had to pick the most important word between a client and a real estate agent its trust. I only met Leighann once but I trust her completely. She is a high quality person. I recommend her without hesitation.|

|Leighann performs responsibilities with utmost professionalism and the strongest drive of any Realtor that I have ever encountered. She believes in doing things the right way and only having to do it once. Her ability to view herself as a partner with her clients buying and selling gives her an incredible edge over all others.|
|Anne Marie Jacobs|
|Leighann helped my family relocate from Ohio to Georgia almost four years ago. She was extremely helpful, always available, and absolutely fundamental in creating a seemless move for us. She left no detail unattended, and even helped us locate a kennel to board our dog during the transition. I would highly recommend her, and know that any perspective client will receive her expertise and friendly assistance from start to finish!|
|Thank You so much for assisting us with the purchase of our first home! You made the stressful process of buying a home stress free! Your knowledge of the real estate market and professionalism were superb! You made everything so easy and it happened in the blink of an eye. You were extremely accommodating; meeting us after work and on the weekends to look for our perfect home. We look forward to working with you again in the future. I would without hesitation recommend you to anyone looking to enter the real estate market!|
Committed to communication and helping you through the entire process!
