Who we are.

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 a 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!

"Leighton made our first-time home buying experience an unforgettable one! She was extremely knowledgeable and honest in her real estate expertise. She was very thorough in showing us every detail in every house we were interested in viewing. We finally settled on a new construction home in the Willows at Bayou Fountain and her experience made the process easy from start to finish. We cannot wait to use her again in the future!"
