Richmond Metropolitan Area Buyer's Agents

Leah V Butler Leah V Butler
LPP Agent

When looking to buy a home, I always recommend using a REALTOR®, someone who can give you the most advantage. Brokers and agents who have earned the right to call themselves REALTORS® have a greater call for experience and training in negotiating, contract construction, and analysis. As one of these well-trained real estate professionals, I can help you understand the real estate market and compose a winning strategy for a Win-Win situation. Start the process of buying your home by letting me make the process easier for you.

I am adaptable to my client's needs and have a wealth of education. I've commenced to becoming the go-to Realtor because I work as your advocate. I believe that everyone deserves a financial education in real estate, and it's my responsibility to see that you get it. That is why I've educated myself to become certified as an ABR®, e-Pro®, SRES®, SFR®, SRS®, PSA®, MRP®, Relocation Specialist, and RENE®. They say when you love what you do it never feels like work. I'm looking forward to working with you. You can't get a better friend.
