Backed by numerous 10/10 testimonials, Leah has a proven track record  that speaks for itself.

Leah has now combined her expertise with Michelle de Baugh, another high performer from Team Anton and established Leading Ladies - Bespoke Homes. A proven winning combination, specialising in the sale of residential and lifestyle homes. 

Leah understands the intrinsic nature and importance of thorough communication, the art of listening and giving on point, honest and timely information to her clients.  Her advertising background realises the vital significance of effective marketing to achieve the best possible results.  Known for her strong negotiation skills and result-driven campaigns, she has created some outstanding sales results.

Having selected Ray White for the sale of my property I was delighted to find that Leah Salversen would be one of my sales agents. The journey to closure was not an easy one and at all times Leah remained professionally confident, compassionate and totally committed to the task at hand. I would have no hesitation in recommending Leah to anyone considering selling or buying their next home.

We were impressed with Leah’s tenacity and ability to navigate a difficult negotiation that ultimately lead to the sale of our home.

She has gone out of her way to us help us with our next purchase even when we she wouldn’t be recompensed for it. Leah was transparent, genuine and has an upbeat approach to all challenges thrown at her.

Well we do I start - I will in the new year speak to her boss - throughout a very tough process due to a very toxic split and in particular one of the vendors was indescribable but leah stayed professional and did a great job. Way beyond the normal expectations of an agent.

Vaughan Bayer

Leah Salvesen (Leah) distinguished herself as an exemplar of her profession from listing to closure of sale. I recommend Leah as a thorough, capable, and stellar professional who exceeds the highest expectations. Leah’s commitment was unwavering and her professionalism unrivalled. Compassionate in nature, ethical, respectful and resilient in her approach. The context of selling my co-owned property was atypical with complicating factors many agents would not experience within decades long careers. The inherent challenges within the sale process due to the context was the perfect storm for any agent to take flight from. I honour Leah for being a courageous and tenacious professional within this context and for her endless patience in weathering the storm to deliver a result I did not expect was possible. Leah provided impeccable timely communication and attention to detail throughout the sale process. This included regular detailed written reporting on market activity and next steps. No questions were unanswered. Without Leah's professionalism, experience, relationship management, approachability, trustworthiness and competence, I doubt the buyers would have waited the months required to gain viewing access to the property. With sincere gratitude and relief, I thank Leah for her immeasurable contribution in closing what has been one of the most stressful periods in my life. I have and will continue to make referrals to Leah knowing she will provide a genuine, ethical, client-centred and reputable service- simply first-class.

We cannot recommend Leah highly enough with all the dealings we had with her. Finding us an appropriate property and selling our home. Throughout the many months it took for us to settle our home and move Leah was with us all the way. We were novices at the whole process but Leah made it easy with all her help and advice. You will be in capable and excellent hands if you appoint her services.

Jono & Jo

We had the absolute pleasure of Leah selling our home for us recently. Leah exceeded all our agent expectations. Every step of the way Leah was super proactive in presenting our home in the best possible way to the market. We were blown away by the very detailed reports Leah complied each week so we could gain the best insight into how the marketing campaign was progressing. Nothing was too much trouble. Leah's work ethic is outstanding. She always put maximum effort in and it really paid off. We would recommend Leah in a heartbeat. Leah brought so much warmth, relatability, and professionalism.

Leah was amazing from the outset, she was knowledgeable about the property we were purchasing and helped us secure it in a multi-offer situation. Then kept us up to date when we were selling our own property, with regular feedback from potential buyers and then a fantastic result on auction day. We wouldn't hesitate to engage her services again in the future.

Caroline & Michael

Leah’s communication skills were excellent. She made herself available and kept in constant touch via phone, face-to-face meetings, and text. Her work ethic is astounding. I received texts from her at 10:30 pm at 5 am. I even had a phone conversation with her at 6:50am & 8.45pm. Her attention to detail is astounding. She has an incredibly calming demeanor which is ideal when dealing with stressful situations. She has a very genuine interest in observing her clients wishes and getting the best deal for her clients. Leah really listens to her clients needs and is very intuitive about buyers. She has a constant wealth of knowledge with regards to marketing strategies and conveyancing. Leah goes above and beyond the call of duty. At my request she gave me a tutorial on buying a house. Her time was invaluable and she coached us through the process of not only selling but buying our dream home which we would’ve lost without her advice. Leah is exceptional and has restored our faith in the integrity of estate agents.

Michael & Nicola

10/10 Leah is professional. She looks amazing (making a great impression). She goes the extra mile in absolutely every way. Never flapped at any stage even when the buyer was a bit difficult about settlement. She was clear in communication. Prompt with feedback. Honest. She even dressed the house with her own magnifcant orchid. I would never have imagined getting this kind of service and in such, she has sealed the RayWhite brand in my mind as par excellence.

Catherine Parsons

10/10 Professional and realistic. Good follow up and excellent communication. Always cheerful and helpful.

Robin Adrian Finney

10/10 - I think above all it was the open, full and honest communication that became the hallmark of my dealings with Leah (plus her sense of humour!). She proved to be very knowledgeable, and anything she was unsure about she checked up on and got back to me. She was full of advice, but managed never to be pushy, enabling me to feel I was making the decisions. The whole process was clear, well-conducted and ultimately very successful. I also felt by the end that I had made a friend.
