About Leighton:

Choosing a REALTOR® is much more than finding help to write an offer or oversee a closing. As a REALTOR®, I represent what you want, expect and deserve when buying or selling property. I have experience representing high-end builders and assisting with developments and also working closing with relocation companies who are transferring clients into Baton Rouge, or moving them out of Baton Rouge.
I have expertise in all aspects of real estate, representing buyers and sellers of distinctive properties. Building on a reputation through hard work, client advocacy and innovative thinking, I set my expectations high. As a savvy negotiator, I manage the transaction through closing with confidence and ease. Born and raised in Baton Rouge, I have strong ties to this great city and believe my knowledge of our capital and surrounding areas is without bounds! Having an education in Art History at Louisiana State University and worked in Interior Design, my services go beyond finding a house to make your new home. I am the past chair of the Image and PR committee of the Greater Baton Rouge Board of Realtors, and a graduate of the Louisiana Realtors Leadership Program.                
What sets me apart from other REALTORS®, is that I do more for my clients. My goal is to understand your needs, desires, and expectations of your real estate transaction. I strive to go above and beyond, while providing my clients with what you deserve.                                                                                     
 Let me be your guide for a professional approach, personal touch, and positive results. From first time home buyers to seasoned shoppers, I can assist you with any transaction in the Greater Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. Whether buying or selling, call me today and we can preview homes tomorrow!

I have many years experience of buying and selling both rural land and residential homes. Never in all of my real estate dealings, have I had someone represent me that is so detailed and dedicated to their career. When my wife Rebecca and I first met with Leighton at our home in Santa Maria, the first thing we noticed is how personable she is and how outgoing. She makes you feel like you have known her forever. She did a tour of our home and then sat down with us after and told us everything she would do for us if we were to list with her. She came to our meeting totally prepared with printed data showing previously sold homes, as well as other homes currently listed we would be competing with. Then with much confidence, she suggested an initial listing price. A listing price that was MUCH higher than we thought our home was worth. Leighton sold our home in just a few short weeks, and not only did she do EVERYTHING exactly as she said she would, she was also spot on with the value of our home! She successfully sold it at full listing price with the first offer she brought us. Anyone considering buying or selling in the Baton Rouge area, would be doing themselves a huge injustice by not using Leighton as their Agent. She is the absolute best!!!
