Meet Leigh

Leigh has been an agent for 15 years and is also licensed in Florida. In her free time she enjoys painting watercolors. 

My Story

Originally from Williamsburg, I started college at VCU then transferred to the University of Florida where I received a degree in Marketing. After a successful career in Advertising, I was ultimately drawn to Real Estate where my true passion lies. First licensed in 2000, my career includes experience as a Realtor in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, and since 2019, I’m back home to Virginia to represent sellers, buyers and investors.


My grandfather was a developer in Williamsburg, purchasing 26 acres of land a whole mile from downtown when it was only accessible on a muddy dirt road. His friends thought he was crazy, “Who would want to live way out there?” Now it is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Williamsburg. I like to think I have inherited his vision for real estate investing, always thinking of future value in my recommendations to clients.


 In my free time, I am an avid birder, genealogist, watercolor artist and native plant gardener. I often get down to Florida to visit my grandson and son in West Palm Beach where he works as a Yacht Captain.


Please get in touch if you think my insight and perspective would be an asset in your real estate decision making, I would be honored and delighted to assist you!



When work required that we relocate to Charlottesville, we thought at first that we might sell our home ourselves. After all, we owned a renovated house in Bellevue and figured it would be a cinch to sell. With realtors, we’d sold two homes in the past; we thought we probably could figure it out. After doing our research, we changed our minds, and I’m so glad we did! Every sale has its particular quirks and I don’t know what we would have done without Leigh’s help. She assisted us in more ways than I can count. Leigh helped us find contractors before the house went on the market, had our house beautifully staged, and negotiated an awesome deal for us. We moved out before the house went to market, and she watered our plants, weeded our garden, and just took care of the place like it was her own. She was a tireless advocate for us, and really just a true friend in the midst of a what is always a very stressful time. She took so much off our plate so we could just focus on getting settled in our new home. We received a number of offers, accepting one that was far over our asking price, and closing in just three weeks. I really don’t think we would have gotten such a high offer, or had such a seamless experience, without Leigh. She is a tireless advocate for her clients, going above and beyond on a regular basis. She is also a wonderful communicator, giving us daily updates and responding immediately to any questions we had. I really can’t recommend her highly enough!” - Bridgid D.


Leigh was absolutely fantastic to work with when I sold my house. I was going through a lot and she made it easy for me. She kept in constant touch and was always available to help when needed. Once I am ready to purchase a new home I will definitely be contacting her to handle it for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks.” - Frank I.


Leigh was amazing to work with!! She held our hands through everything and went way above and beyond the call of duty! I was in TX while my ex-husband was in VA during the sale of our home. She kept us both informed and up to date and handled every email and phone call immediately. She made it easy. I highly recommend her!” -Faith S.


“Leigh was a great asset in helping put together everything we needed to complete our closing. Dependable and honest, a fighter and now a friend. Would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home and needs reliable help with choosing the correct option available to them.” -Shawn T.


We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Leigh Burleson. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We met with a couple of realtors before Leigh, but we knew instantly that she was the one for us. She is honest and hands-on (even took time to thoroughly explain and point out to contractors about our concerns and became a pit bull for us!), and listened to everything we wanted and needed for our family dynamic. Even through the many changes I personally made in our search she never made us feel like a number. She really helped to take the pressure off of us. We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the "one" and ended up in a negotiation war, Leigh walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we should write a letter to the seller to explain why we thought she should choose us. It was an unconventional approach but it worked and we thank Leigh for that every day! We have several friends looking for homes and thinking about selling, and we always recommend Leigh to them!” - Roxana D.


Leigh Burleson is an extraordinary five-star realtor. If you are planning to buy or sell property, I encourage you to call her immediately!

Our first connection occurred when I was looking to purchase property in North Chattanooga, TN in 2007.  I was naive to the overall realty process and was attempting to do it on my own. Fortunately for me, I encountered a gentleman who described Leigh and encouraged me to contact her.  

She is articulate, is an excellent listener, and is an excellent teacher when it comes to the subject of real estate.  

Whether you are buying or selling, Leigh will thoroughly explain and answer all questions. In a very short time, she located an absolutely perfect property for myself and my daughter.  She negotiated on our behalf with the seller and my offer was soon accepted.  

We lived in that home for thirteen years and decided to sell this past fall. Even though she had moved several states away, I remembered Leigh’s professionalism and once again, I solicited her assistance with the process of selling that same bungalow.  It was extremely comforting to have Leigh back on board!  As before, she was amazingly patient, detail oriented and professional throughout the entire process. With her support, I found myself happily accepting an offer within eight short days of listing the property!

She is exceptional, and is a true professional in the often-tricky process of buying and selling property!” -Donna T
