This ethos permeates every aspect of her work, from her enthusiastic energy to her forthright honesty. She deeply cares for her customers, many of whom have become very dear friends.

Lesley is known affectionately by her sellers, buyers, and investors as a “Florida Dictionary” and she always has her hand on the pulse of the FL real estate market.

My Recent Reviews

As our selling agent, Lesley Barton was spot on with the price point for our home. Her staging suggestions, attention for detaiforand professional photography were key to successful marketing and sale of our home. Look no further for a better real estate pro.

I haven't really "traditionally bought" a house before. I assumed my last home, so the process was intimidating to me. Once my loan was pre-approved, again, lost. On a whim, I asked Facebook. The responses were overwhelming to go to Lesley Barton. So I did. Lesley walked me through everything. Including my ridiculous schedule. After I visited the home (I eventually bought), Lesley took over. If there was an inspection or something needing to be done, she got it. I was constantly being updated on every aspect of home buying process. Look, we missed a closing date by 4 days (VAs fault). I met, for the first time, my step sister. If we closed on the original date, I'd have never met her. It was meant to be delayed. Yeah, y'all go see Lesley and Berlie. It'll be the best home buying experience.

I met Lesley while escaping the brutal Michigan winters in 2019. We were JUST beginning our research into purchasing or building here in SW FL. With her upbeat personality, attention to my every question, and her patience with my lack of knowledge, I knew I had found a good match with our realtor. I spent 2 winter seasons in FL in a fifth wheel and last year in a Cape Coral rental, all the while picking Lesleys brain about building codes, available properties and reputable contractors and tradesmen for our hopeful project. 3 seasons. 3. I asked so much of this highly knowledgeable and extremely motivated woman; she answered every question and guided us toward the best people for our needs. Returned phone calls within minutes, extremely efficient and well connected with local businesses. What a blessing for us! August 2021, we finally tied up our loose ends here in Michigan and began a REAL home search. With the market demanding immediate action and response, Lesley investigated all our homes of interest, steered us clear of the big issues = bad homes and we ended up bidding on and landing the best home for us. Lesleys intuitive guidance coupled with her keen prowess regarding the navigation of complicated Florida real estate was the ONLY reason we won our little slice of palm tree bordered paradise. Accurate, aggressive and quick is essential in this game and Lesley executes this well as the pro that she is. Even after the sale, she has been a GREAT help to suggest and coordinate our tradesmen and contractors for the anticipated improvements of our 50 year old home. I would not hesitate a moment to recommend Lesley and her team for any real estate endeavor. I am very grateful for her expertise and consistently offering her valuable time and advice. We are thrilled to be her clients and now, Florida friends!.

I recently contacted Lesley Barton regarding the sale of a lot I owned in Port Charlotte, Florida. She was very knowledgeable about property market in the area. She explained the whole process of selling the property, the costs involved, and who would be contacting me for the closing. She made me feel very comfortable through the entire sale. I would highly recommend her as the sales agent in selling or purchasing property. I really wish her the best in all future endeavors!

Lesley was amazing! We were looking for some property to buy for a future 2nd home. Lesley was extremely knowledgeable, experienced and knew the area so well. Her expertise really put us at ease. She was so helpful, it took away any stress or worry we initially had. This was the first time we'd ever bought vacant land. I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was, working with Lesley! She definitely puts her clients first!
