What Our Clients Say About Leigh Shobe
Leigh was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire buying process. She gave us a great variety of homes to look at and always took our feedback into account for showings. She always answers her phone and gets you the answers that you need right away. She really went above and beyond when it came to meeting contractors and inspectors at the house as we lived out of state. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in a heartbeat, she will ALWAYS have your best interest front of mind. - Dawson
Fun to work with. Knowledgeable about the market and pricing of my property. Very helpful with staging and recommendations on how to stage the property. - Anastasia for Leigh Shobe
I moved back home to Richmond in September of 2022, and I was able to find my forever home only with the help and support of Leigh Shobe! She listened carefully to my needs as a condo owner, and made efficient use of my time by showing me only condos that met my requirements. Leigh is an expert communicator, and kept me up to date in a timely manner through out the process of finding a unit, making an offer, and closing. She knows her profession inside and out, and shared her wisdom about the Richmond real estate market, supporting my decisions and answering my many questions! Her enthusiasm and positive attitude were crucial in my search, since there wasn't a lot of inventory in the early fall and I could have been easily discouraged. She is an excellent sounding board. She patiently listened to all my questions, giving me time to reflect and make my own decisions. She was critical in helping me decide on my offer! Moving back home to Richmond after decades in Chicago was my dream for many years. Only with Leigh's support and knowledge of her professions and the RVA market is that dream now a reality. - Chris Kennelly for Leigh Shobe
Leigh was incredible! She went above and beyond to help us become familiar with the Richmond area and was very knowledgeable about what to look for in a house during the process. She even skipped her office Christmas party to submit the offer that resulted in us getting our home. I cannot recommend her more highly. You won’t be sorry. - Deborah for Leigh Shobe

Professional Approach Leigh is a great asset to have on your team when looking to buy a property. Her professional approach, accompanied by market knowledge and acute attention to detail provided for a seamless (as it can be) purchase process. - Douglas
Leigh is Amazing! Leigh Shobe was AMAZING!! I would recommend her to my closest relatives. I trust Leigh. She was kind and competent. - Happy Client
As new people in the area, Leigh was a GODSEND! We needed someone who knew the area and didn't mind fielding an inordinate amount of questions. We were also looking for someone that made us feel comfortable and safe. Leigh made us feel like family. Her kindness was genuine. My family never felt she was putting on an act to be in our good graces. The only reason I put a 5 star rating on responsiveness is because there is not a 6th star! When a question would hit me at an odd hour, Leigh was there to field the inquiry, and never once made me feel like an inconvenience. I have found her to be reliable, trustworthy, and personable. I would recommend Leigh to my own family members - Joe
