Joni & Bill Banks "My wife and I have been looking for a vacation home in the HHI area for over 3 years. We have been vacationing on Hilton Head Island for the past decade or more and decided we wanted to own a home there. The real estate landscape is pretty difficult to navigate and understand. We needed a lot of help, once we committed ourselves to the venture. Leslie Gayle turned out to be the perfect individual for us and the task at hand. We dealt briefly with a couple of sales agent, but Leslie had the tact and patience to allow us the full scope of search we needed to go thru in order to feel totally comfortable and certain in our decision making process. It really took a skilled individual like Leslie to allow us the time and space to search the Island without pressure or hindrances; always professional, polite, and UNDERSTANDING thru the whole process. I am sure it took all of Leslie's skill sets and the patience of JOB, but I must say we could not have got the purchase done without her total effort. We are extremely happy with the outcome and the home in PD. We would highly recommend Leslie Gayle's services to any individual(s) looking to buy property in the beautiful Hilton Head Island area."

Pam & Bob Wisnewski "I have worked with Leslie looking for investment property for several years. My wife and I have differing ideas on the ideal property, yet Leslie has a unique knack in bringing us together. Leslie is very patient with us knowing we "need" to look at the property even though we are out of town. She updates us regularly with new listings that she understands we would consider. When given an unusual opportunity she has never encountered, Leslie spends countless hours researching with experts in order to make sure we will not have an unreasonable risk. She also writes a bullet proof contract and knows Hilton Head Island very well. As we build our real estate empire, we will continue to utilize Leslie and her resources." January 2010
Jan Maher If you're thinking about buying or selling a home and you're not sure which agent to work with, I highly recommend Leslie Gayle of Keller Williams Realty Hilton Head Island. I recently had the pleasure of accompanying a close friend during her search for a new home in the Bluffton/Hilton Head Island area. Leslie was her agent, and after spending several days with her it's clear she's a top-notch Realtor. Having been in real estate myself and also bought, built, and sold many of my own homes over the years, I know what it takes to get the job done. It's important to stay on top of the market, have great networking and people skills, be assertive without being pushy, and always act with honesty, integrity, and professionalism. Leslie clearly brings all that, and more! I will definitely choose Leslie as my Realtor for all of my property purchases and sales from now on, and it is without hesitation that I recommend her to assist you with your Real Estate needs.

Nancy Cox "Leslie was very flexible about meeting our unique time requirement and we were very impressed with her ability to quickly pick real estate that conveyed the spectrum of opportunities available on such short notice. She was very knowledgeable about the area's townhouses, villas and single family homes and on top of the taxes for each homes we viewed. Being a long-time resident of the island, Leslie was easily able to navigate us throught the maze of small quiet streets and bigger, busier roadways on Hilton Head while showing us examples of the many types of home were interested in.
We were very happy with Leslie's positive viewpoint, broad knowledge and insightful facts about island life. We look forward to working with he as our real estate needs develop."
