I knew from our first conversation that I would enjoy working with Leslie. I wasn’t sure what to expect when searching for my first home, but she came prepared to our first meeting. We went over some key points in what I was looking for and the location that I wanted to stay in. She made sure we looked in my preferred location. It didn’t take us very long to find my new home. It was a very smooth process and I know that was because of Leslie and all her hard work.
I truly enjoyed working with her. I would definitely recommend family and friends to Leslie. When/if I sale this house and looking for a new one, she will be my first phone call.
We put our home on the market and started looking for houses. We found a home that we wanted to see and contacted the listing agent, Leslie. When we met, she introduced herself and then started explaining details about the home we were there to see. You could tell she wasn’t there to “just” let us in, she was there to explain what makes that particular house a home.
While touring the home Leslie took her time to ask questions about our needs or wants in a home. It was determined that this particular home would not meet our needs, but Leslie went to her office and found a list of homes she felt that would be a good starting point for us to look at.
When we went on tours to see other homes, Leslie went above to find out details about the home and the neighborhood before we ever saw the house. Again, she would always start by giving us a guided tour and explaining details about the house and the attributes that would benefit our family.
We found Leslie to not be “just” a realtor. She provided guided tours, guidance and advice on the homes we were looking at. While spending several hours of her time searching for the “right” home, she never lost sight of what are needs were and being able to work within our time crunch. She found us the right home, in the right location, with everything we were wanting in that prefect home. Thank you Leslie!

We have known Leslie Rainey both personally and professionally for more than 25 years. She has sold every house we’ve owned and guided us through the purchase process each time as well. Leslie recently helped our son purchase his first home and we have referred her to many other friends and family members. All have been very satisfied with every aspect of her services. Leslie goes out of her way to make sure your needs are met and she’s an absolute pleasure to work with. Her experience and knowledge in the real estate business are top notch and she is highly professional.

Leslie Rainey was the realtor that sold our home in the fall of 2016 (when moving out of state.) She took the time for even the smallest and most time consuming details. She knew where we could invest our money and time to make our home not only marketable but competitive. She had an amazing and professional rapport with fellow realtors demanding her respect. Her marketing ideas were innovative. We knew we were in good hands with Leslie.

I originally approached Leslie Rainey regarding my cross country move due to her experience and reputation as being a trusted and experienced realtor in the Kansas City area. I needed someone who could help a first time home buyer find the perfect home in a very limited amount of time. However, what I was not expecting was the unbelievable level of kindness and generosity Leslie exudes with every interaction I had with her. Even being half way across the country, she not only made sure to keep me informed during the buying process but went above and beyond in every way to aid with any and all sticking points with my mortgage and my sellers. She made me feel that when I was working with her she cared about my family and me as friends and partners in this great new adventure, not just buyers or clients buying another starter home. For us, that meant the world while moving to a new state and new city we’d never even visited. Not to mention, our home is perfect for all our needs and was well within our budget! We can’t thank you enough Leslie!

When we needed to buy a home halfway across the country, I was overwhelmed. When I realized that only my wife would be able to afford the time off work to travel and look for said house, I was terrified. However, looking back on working with Leslie, I realize I never needed to be either. She carefully considered all of the “must-haves” our family needed for our new home and always kept my wife and I updated during the process. When I walked into my new home for the first time on closing, I was blown away (in the good way). Leslie is easy to work with, has extensive knowledge of the Kansas City area, and most of all, really takes the time to listen to clients. I could not recommend her more highly to anyone who is looking to move to Kansas City. She will find you the house of your dreams and do everything she can to make sure you get it.
Leslie is wonderful to work with. We told her exactly what we were looking for and she worked nonstop to find it. This was our first time buying and selling a house. Leslie kept us calm and answered all of our questions. The whole process went smooth and stress free. We would highly recommend Leslie Rainey as your realtor.

Leslie is knowledgeable and dependable real estate agent. She is empathetic, understanding and always ready to move forward and meet your needs. Joe and Chheng
We interviewed several realtors before choosing one to work with to buy our home. Leslie was our favorite by far. She listened to the things we really wanted in a home. She stayed on top of the market and notified us of things going on the market. She was always prompt and spent long hours working to find us the perfect home. We were moving from out of state and her attention to detail on things about the areas, schools, neighborhoods, builders, current and past market, and any red flags were priceless. She was professional when making offers, countering, and negotiating.

We have known Leslie for 3 years. In those 3 years she helped us buy our first lovely new home and 2 years later sell that home. This is a fun yet scary time for first time home owners, but Leslie made every step of the way comfortable and enjoyable. Her expertise in the real estate market is very impressive. She has decades of experience under her belt and it definitely shows. Her honest, dependable, energetic personality is sure to help any one with their home buying and selling needs. We are very pleased to have worked with Leslie Rainey, and we highly recommend her to all of our friends and family. She is one of a kind and fabulous!!

My wife and I have had several transactions using Leslie over the past 20+ years and recommended her to friends moving into the KC area. She has always been very professional, available, and is simply the best realtor we have ever worked with. In our most recent purchase we bought a home under construction while we lived our of state. She negotiated the extras we requested, kept us updated by taking pictures of the home and emailing them to us, and addressed concerns we had as construction continued. She was by our sides every step of the way from showing to closing.

I have known Leslie Rainey for almost 30 years. She found four wonderful homes for me and sold three in an amazingly short time each time. Leslie is the kindest and most honest realtor that I have ever dealt with. She is so conscientious that she very quickly learns enough about her clients to know exactly what to show them in search of their new home. I highly recommend her as an amazing realtor.
When we decided to buy our first house, we had enough requirements to scare off any real estate agent but not Leslie! She invested many thoughtful, patient, and efficient hours with us and we pulled it off! We finally found what became our beloved first home.
Six years later when it was time to move, we called her up. She had more than enough experience to walk through our home and tell us exactly what to spend time and money on fixing and improving. She knows what people want to see and what was necessary or optional in fixing and could give sound advice and direction. Our home sold in only three days and for $10,000 more than what we bought it for.
Best of all, she is warm and personable. She is real. She became our true friend and not just a business associate. If we still lived in Kansas City we would use her for life.

Leslie came highly recommended to us by a mutual friend. After just our first meeting it was evident why she was so highly recommended. She was an amazing Real Estate agent who after asking us only a handful of questions had a good understanding of the area and type of home we were looking for. Leslie is very knowledgeable of the various subdivisions and the pros and cons of each. Leslie was very organized and had appointments set up for us to see many homes. It did not take long for her to find us the perfect home and help us negotiate a fair purchase contract. She even recommended a great local lender for us. When it comes to real estate in the Kansas City area Leslie Rainey is the best of the best!
