I developed my real estate expertise over the past 10 years by successfully working for both buyers and sellers. This success has been the result of providing my clients with an in-depth understanding of the market, current trends, top notch negotiating skills and integrity. I understand a real estate transaction is highly emotional and usually the largest financial transaction a family may undertake. Being a skilled communicator, a good listener and a naturally patient person, are qualities that have been invaluable to my success...

I developed my real estate expertise over the past 10 years by successfully working for both buyers and sellers. This success has been the result of providing my clients with an in-depth understanding of the market, current trends, top notch negotiating skills and integrity. I understand a real estate transaction is highly emotional and usually the largest financial transaction a family may undertake. Being a skilled communicator, a good listener and a naturally patient person, are qualities that have been invaluable to my success. These skills helped me manage expectations for both buyers and sellers. I am particularly proud of my high referral rate from past customers. As a 25 year resident of Scarsdale, Edgemont, and currently Armonk, I have invaluable first-hand knowledge of the schools and surrounding areas. I also have sold and/or listed homes in Scardale, Edgemont, White Plains, New Rochelle, Armonk, Harrison, Rye Brook, Ardsley & Eastchester. As a mother of three children who have gone through both public and private education, I can offer practical insight and experience to families considering a move to Westchester County. My hands-on experience with new construction and home renovation is also another value-added plus for my clients. Having this strong understanding of construction/design has helped me work successfully with local builders, architects, designers and contractors. This knowledge can greatly help a prospective buyer and also works very well for a seller to position their home for a timely and successful sale. I also enjoy being an active leader in my community. I have held past leadership positions in Scarsdale’s United Jewish Appeal’s Woman’s Division, Friends Of Music and the Arts at Scarsdale High School, Learning To Look at The Solomon Schechter School Of Westchester. I also have been a past member of the PTA at The Windward School. In addition to these positions I spent 8 years as a member of the Advisory Council to The College Of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with my family and our Sheep Doodle, Stella who volunteers with me as a therapy dog at The Bristol.

Energetic and passionate, Leslie promises to work tirelessly to get your property sold or to find you your dream home.

Testimonials

I would give Leslie 10 stars if I had the option. My husband and I worked with her to buy a home in the Westchester area. As we are new to Westchester, Leslie spent the first few weeks patiently showing us different areas and the houses on the market, so we could make an educated decision. She asked the right questions and in a couple of weeks knew exactly the type of home we were looking for. She worked closely with us during the entire process, and went above and beyond to get us the home that we liked. Even post purchase, she checks-in and quickly prompts to texts/emails if we have any questions, as we settle down in our new home. I would look no further than Leslie if you're looking for a professional, knowledgeable, proactive, systematic, and hands-on real-estate agent.

I had a fabulous experience with Leslie. I was the executor of an estate and we had to sell a condo in Scarsdale. As I am not in Scarsdale, Leslie handled everything wonderfully, going above and beyond and making herself available for various matters including repairs to the property, inspections and so on. I fully believe that she got us the best price for the property. And the process was a streamlined as possible. I strongly recommend Leslie Shemin-Lester.

Seller - Scarsdale, NY

My wife and I are beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Leslie. She is a consummate professional and has become a close friend of our family. Her extensive knowledge of the Scarsdale market gave us both comfort in our decision and a true advantage in the buying process. She was patient over the many months we searched for our ideal home and provided a constant stream of honest and invaluable insights to guide us to the right decision. I could not possibly recommend Leslie more and if you're lucky enough to work with her, rest assured you're getting the best level of service and knowledge available. We are so deeply appreciative for all you did for our family!

Leslie was an outstanding advisor and we were very pleased with our outcome. She is smart, knowledgeable, empathetic, and very pleasant to work with. Combines great "EQ" with strategic advice. Great work ethic. Would recommend her unreservedly.

Seller - 26 Sheldrake Rd, Scarsdale

"She really is the best and very professional. Her advice was very clear and worked beautifully for me. My house was sold within two weeks. She rearranged and helped stage the house perfectly. I found a buyer very quickly. I would recommend her to anyone. She is the best!"

Seller, Scarsdale, NY

"Leslies passion was evident from the start. She explained the whole process clearly. From save the date to the staging, the photo shoot, everything was seamless. She negotiated an above asking price and closed the deal in three days, easy when you have the know how and experience. So glad we chose her to represent us, I highly suggest you do the same... Gordan Rafajac"

Seller, Scarsdale, NY

Leslie was an extraordinary real estate agent in all aspects of the sale of my home. She took the time to understand the details of my home so she could articulate a strong story to other agents and potential buyers.

I would 100% recommend Leslie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area!

Leslie is very professional, pleasure to deal with and most importantly - she knows her stuff. Leslie makes an effort to understand your needs and then methodically delivers. We highly recommend Leslie for all your real estate needs. Look no further!

Seller- New Rochelle, NY

Leslie was extremely easy to work with and extremely professional. We hit some bumps in the road with our buyers and she was able to navigate them with ease. She also worked well with the buyer's agent and that made things easier to get to closing on a timely basis.

Seller - New Rochelle

Leslie is an outstanding broker and was a real pleasure to work with. She understood our needs and priorities and and helped find the right house for our family. Leslie is honest and straightforward. She is professional and knowledgeable and is on top of the market. She has a good eye and is creative and as such provided valuable input on small changes with big impact that we could make in some of the properties we considered. She made the entire process fun.

Seller - Scarsdale, NY

Leslie is pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable realtor, skillful negotiator. Knows all the bells and whistles of real estate transaction. Very dedicated to her clients, we could address our concerns or any questions in the morning or late at night and Leslie was always there for us. We not only bought our house with Leslie, but also sold it with her when time was right for us to sell. Thank you Leslie for all your help, time and support.

Seller - White Plains, NY

Leslie did an incredible job selling our home. She is a consummate professional from start to finish. She is very honest, knowledgeable about the market, and dedicated. She provided us with great advice and guided us throughout the entire process. She also has an accurate sense of the market and provided realistic feedback along the way. Leslie is also a great problem solver and negotiator. I truly cannot recommend her highly enough. Anyone working with Leslie will be in the very best hands in the business!

Namee and Darren Oberst - Scarsdale

Just a note to say thanks for all your help selling our home. It was really a pleasure to work with you. Although it was not the easiest home to sell it was ours and while rationally we knew its drawbacks, emotionally it was hard especially for me. Leslie you made things as easy as possible for us and always had a positive attitude. There was nothing you could not solve oil tanks, soil contamination-hurdles that were discovered and all solved. Again out many thanks!

Roberta & Phil - Scarsdale

We got to know Leslie through a random encounter and she immediately impressed us with her professionalism, attention to detail, passion about her job, and her thoughtfulness for her clients. Leslie worked patiently with us for a long time. Through her interactions with her we felt we could fully trust her knowledge, experience and professionalism. Even when we backed out of an Accepted Offer one time she was very understanding. We did eventually buy a home we like very much. We feel very thankful that Leslie patiently worked with us throughout the entire process and stood by our side whenever we needed her.I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone who is looking to buy a home in Westchester area.

Jessie- Rye Brook

Leslie was a pleasure to work with. She quickly honed in on what we were looking for and knew our tastes to a T. Her breadth of understanding on the market and the area was invaluable. As recent transplants to the suburbs from Manhattan, we had an abundance of questions and Leslie was always there with the answers and an immense source of information. She was our guide not only in finding us a new home but also a new community.

Doug and Jen Edgemont

Full disclosure, Leslie was my very caring neighbor during some very stressful times. When I thought about selling she made some suggestions for landscaping and mentioned a builder she thought may be interested. A year later she when I decided to sell, went into action and in two calls my house was sold to the builder for the price we all agreed was fair. That was the beginning of her full service operation rather than the end. I now needed an apartment. She searched every possible condo and rental opportunity in lower Westchester, even accompanying me to some buildings where she knew she would not get a fee. She recommended a real estate lawyer, mover, tag sale operator and handyman all who were terrific. Ironically, the easiest part of this entire saga was the sale because of her knowledge of the community, and her net working skills, but she more than earned her broker's fee, getting me out of the house, into the apartment, and dealing with emotional moments of uncertainty, panic and genuine sadness at leaving the home I once loved.
