Clients Have To Say”
I would like to give a shout out to our Realtor friend, without her and her partner, this deal could not have gone off as quickly as it did. Leslie Paige Hawkins made buying a home in North Georgia so seamlessly easy for Laurie and I. Without her and her partner Tarran Craver, There was never a fuss. Leslie, even with the Covid 19 pandemic in progress, met us within hours of wanting to look at a home. Here is how easy it was - 2 weekends of looking for a home. This home came up on MLS at 10 am March 27 (Laurie and my 21st anniversary). Called Leslie. She setup an appointment at 4:30. Saw the house, put a bid on the house, the selling people accepted the offer by 9am on Saturday morning. Stipulation was that we closed within 30 days. On May 1st (Laurie's birthday), we closed on the house and started to move into our retirement home. We have been here permanently for a bit over a week and couldn't be happier. Thank you to Leslie Paige Hawkins and Tarran Craver for making this transition happen. If you are moving to North Georgia, or are looking for a new home in North Georgia, please reach out to them for assistance in your purchase. Re/Max Regency should be happy that they have a pair of realtors with so much compassion.

Hawkins and Craver are a powerful team! Very friendly, helpful, patient and knowledgeable. I have bought several houses over the years and I wish I had known them then. I will most definitely use them in the future! Look no further for all your Real Estate needs!
BEST AGENTS EVER! These ladies are the most organized pro active agents we have ever dealt with. They were referred to us by a friend who had nothing but praise for this team. From there sales presentation, marketing process, to closing; we were kept informed each step of the way. Tarran and Leslie communicate well with their clients and did not over estimate the asking price for our home. We were excited that we received an offer that was well within our target and so soon after listing. We will definitely use this team in the future.

Thank you Leslie and Tarran for listing and selling our home. You made it so easy for us...planning, marketing, automating and negotiating. We even were able to close by mail from our new retirement home at the beach. You did it all and were a pleasure to work with.
Tarran and Leslie did a wonderful job in representing us during our home buying process. They know the market really well and knew which houses were overpriced and which ones where priced to move. They guided us every step of the way and made sure the closing occurred on time without any last minute problems. I highly recommend them!
-B. Jolly 9/11/19
Tarran and Leslie successfully took us through the home buying experience with an excellent mix of professionalism and friendliness that was unmatched by any of our previous real estate activities. From the setup of the available house program to the visual search of selected properties, we were provided a well explained process that greatly helped to navigate through all of the information and eventually resulted in selection of our new home. We strongly recommend this team to anyone looking to find a home in this area.

I can’t brag enough about Tarran and Leslie. We were out-of-town buyers, but they worked with us the whole time. I chose homes within 3 counties, and they showed them all!! They are awesome!! They truly are the best!
-R. Marshall 6/28/19
Tarran and Leslie were a pleasure to work with. They were thorough in researching the facts in the housing prices in our neighborhood and developed a good marketing strategy for our house. They followed up on showings to get feedback. They guided us through the closing process. I would recommend them to any of my friends looking to sell their home.
Leslie and Tarran have helped me buy and sell twice in the past three years and they are AWESOME. They are so organized, timely, and hard-working. They worked tirelessly to help me get the most out of my sale and purchase homes. I had very difficult buyers this last time and they helped me negotiate the emotions and logistics of dealing with them. They will truly go above and beyond and help you find just the house you are looking for (or sell the one you're ready to leave behind). They are especially good to educators, providing an educator discount. Don't hesitate to give them a call if you're thinking about buying or selling--they won't pressure you and will give you sound advice.

Leslie and Tarran are fantastic to work with! We did a voluntary move from Texas to the Atlanta area. They listened to our wants and needs, provided us with several homes to view online and kept us focused during a marathon long weekend of house hunting. They made the buying process less stressful, even though it was done long distance. They were always available to answer questions and provide guidance. Their personalities complement each other so well that their clients are truly getting two amazing agents for the price of one. We were so blessed to have had them recommended to us and will continue to send friends and family their way.
-S. Smith 6/17/19
Tarran and Leslie rocked the selling of our home and finding our dream house. We can’t think of anyone else we could trust with all the emotions that go into moving.
Tarran was so helpful when I was purchasing my first home! She was very knowledgeable about what to look for in a house and neighborhood. Her website was very user friendly and really helped me narrow down areas and houses that I wanted to look at. She was always able to show me houses asap and was a great help in finding houses to go look at.
-A. Decker 9/26/17
Tarran is the best realtor around. She had our house sold in 48 hours. She was willing to help us if we were willing to put the time and hard work into getting the house ready also. She brought some of her own furnishings into our house for staging! I never could have done it without Tarran. She was fabulous! I highly recommend her for selling your house. I'm sure she would be just as great at finding a house, but we were moving to another area.
-P. Hietter 11/12/16
Tarran was great to work with! I was a first-time buyer looking for a townhouse in the Buckhead/Brookhaven neighborhoods of Atlanta. I was overwhelmed by the home-buying process and felt discouraged watching great places disappear before I even had the chance to look at them. Tarran was awesome. She explained every step of the process and answered all of my questions. She really understood what I was looking for and was able to find me the perfect place within one week of officially starting my search. I've been in my townhouse for a month now and couldn't be happier!

We used Tarran for buying and selling. If I could give her more than 5 stars than I would! On the selling side, Tarran walked through our house and gave us her opinions on what to change/fix prior to listing. She also walked our backyard and gave us improvement suggestions prior to posting. Additionally, she staged our backyard, deck and house. All of her improvement suggestions and staging made a world of difference. Additionally, She put together an entire marketing strategy and outlined each step of it to us. Tarran was able to sell and negotiate our house for over list price in 48 hours. On the buying side, Tarran put together an entire afternoon of house hunting. She provided me with a packet of information-including the map of our day, information on each house and additional comments section so I could rate each house as we saw them. She told me we had to exhaust the market before placing an offer on anything (and we did)! She even had snacks and drinks...house hunting can be exhausting, but Tarran was PREPARED! Once we put an offer in, Tarran was ON IT the entire time. She was there with me every step of the way. She provided estimates to us when the inspection came back with all the items to fix, worked directly with our lender and was available to us 24/7. Buying and selling feels daunting...but with Tarran, it was a lot easier than I ever anticipated it being. Additionally, Taran cared about us. She genuinely wanted what was best for my family and me. I would recommend Tarran Craver to anyone looking to buy, sell or both. You won't be disappointed.
-M. Morris 7/31/16
Tarran was absolutely a joy to work with. We felt confident that she was always working for us and looking out for our best interest! We would highly recommend her, and already have!
-W. Lowery 7/21/16
Tarran Craver is very honest, straightforward and organized. She beautifully negotiated getting me an accepted offer as a buyer when there were several offers on the table in this competitive market! She has seriously amazing organizational skills...must have been all the years as PTA president among her many well respected accomplishments. I know first hand that Tarran will go the extra mile for her clients and work very hard so that they will be satisfied. I realized pretty quickly I ended up with a winner and an exceptional person!

I recently picked Leslie to list my condominium out of scores of agents. It was the wisest decision I made in my home selling experience.I was a first-time home seller, and the process can be daunting. I was constantly asking questions about procedure, strategy, realities of the market, logistics, and what subtleties could alter the outcome. Leslie is knowledgeable and instructive, but more importantly, she is patient. There was no question that was too small or request that was too large. I realized, also, that selling a home can bring out emotions and attitudes that are not always helpful to the process, but Leslie was always - always - there to "talk me down from the ledge." Leslie is also very responsive to her clients' desires and suggestions, at all hours of the day. But more importantly, she is honest about them. While every decision was ultimately mine, there were times when my choices were not the wisest, and she gently helped me to move toward what were the right decisions. I appreciated this.I had a specific outcome that I wanted from the sale of my condominium, and Leslie kept me grounded throughout the process so that I never veered from that goal. Leslie listens, she responds, she guides, she "holds your hand," she encourages, and she is, in the end, successful.
-R. Patrick 9/30/15
Leslie is amazing. She is knowledgeable, she is responsive, she is kind and she is just plain fun and nice to deal with! She came to our home fully prepared with comps, worked closely with us as buyers were coming to view our home and helped us close the deal to our satisfaction. Highly recommend her!
-C. Lepore 8/10/15
Thirteen years ago my husband and I bought our first home. The experience was not what I would have expected of a real estate agent. Therefore, we were very apprehensive when we were preparing to list our home and hunt for a new home. We met with Leslie the first time in July 2014 to discuss our plan and wishes. She was a great listener and very supportive. She knew our expectations and knew we were not ready to move fast, but she checked in with us each week and made sure we were pleased with the house website feed. When it was time to get serious she was very encouraging, made time for us when we were available, and did all the leg work. If we had a question she researched it and got back to us in less than 24 hours. When we were out looking at houses she took note of what we wanted and didn't pressure us during our apprehension. Leslie also sold our home for us and was a great buffer between the buyers agent and us. She made sure we sold our house for what we wanted and marketed it for the clients in the area. Our experience was far better than what we expected and would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

Leslie has excellent communication skills that contributed to the purchase of our new home. Leslie works endless hours to ensure a smooth transaction between both parties. Leslie is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and is always available to answer questions about the process. She did a good job assisting us with selling 2 condos and buying a new home. I would recommend Leslie for your next real estate needs.
I have recently worked with Leslie regarding my purchase of a new home. At the time I started the process my interest in both location and type of property were quite diverse. I was very pleased with Leslie's knowledge of the market and patience in giving me information and offering guidance during my selection process. That was the beginning. Leslie proved just as valuable in the process of offering and negotiating the sale agreement on my behalf. Leslie's responsiveness is extraordinary. I am entirely happy with Leslie's work and that of the office staff that supported her.
-D. Ribaric 7/21/15
I have had the opportunity to sell and purchase a total of 5 homes and by far Leslie has been the most efficient and professional Real Estate professional I have ever encountered. She went above and beyond to get the job done in a timely manner. She assisted with everything from finding a reputable home inspector to a loan institution and much more. There was nothing that I requested of her that she did not follow through on successfully. Leslie has creative ideas, is flexible, energetic and definately a team player. Leslie's knowledge of the area served, responsiveness and negotiating skills is at the highest level.
-J. Norford 7/21/15
Leslie was very professional and accommodating. Anytime I/we contacted her, she responded right away. She was always available for showings and willing to show new listings whenever we found one we're interested in. She communicated and explained the process every step of the way. No question was a dumb question. I felt she was honest and looking out for our best interest. I would definitely recommend her.
-L Edwards 7/20/15
Leslie made a nearly impossible deal happen. Working with a tight set of parameters and difficult circumstances she directed me to a program that helped my family and I get into a home in the school district I wanted and in budget. She was patient, highly knowledgeable, an expert negotiator, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure my family and I were able to get into a home using the Home Partners of America Program. Even though there were many obstacles, she never gave up. She is a true professional and provided direction throughout the entire process. She knows the North Fulton and Forsyth areas exceptionally well and was able to find homes in my budget as well as provide options for other areas that were comparable. I would recommend using Leslie as I am completely confident she can also help you find a home!

My wife and I had the fortune of running into Leslie Hawkins at an open house. The house was more than we could ever afford, but wanted to see how the upper half lived. When we walked in we were greeted with this wide smile and charismatic personality. Since that first meeting, we met several times to look at homes and find something that suited our needs, as well as our wallets. Leslie took the time to determine our exact needs and found several options. Through the entire process, Leslie was a superior real estate agent, and worked with us on finding a home, rather than try to force a home down our throats. We closed on our house yesterday. We are grateful for Leslie, and will continue to be friends with her and her family. She has great values and judgments that surpass any other realtor that we have worked with in the past. If you are looking for someone that can be your friend, while being a salesperson, Leslie is for you. We call her Friend today.
-R. Bottini 12/23/14
Leslie is very on top of things and very responsive to my requests, the kind of things you want in a realtor. I was never left in the dark about anything and her negotiation skills are excellent. The most impressive thing is that she always had my best interest at heart, a rare find today. She always made me feel as though my transaction was her most important and we were always in constant communication.
It was my lucky day to find Leslie and I would highly recommend her you won't find any better.

Leslie Hawkins was our listing and buying agent. She had a contract on our home in 6 days for our exact asking price! Leslie provided outstanding guidance and support in the sale of our home. She was quick to respond to all questions and concerns. Leslie also assisted us in the purchase of our new home. She is skilled in the art of negotiation and developed a collaborative rapport with our seller's agent. My husband and I highly recommend Leslie for the sale or purchase of your home. You will not be disappointed!
-A. Scheifflee 12/8/14
Leslie has been amazing in helping me shop for a new home. Even before I was "seriously" shopping, she put an alert on the prices the homes in my neighborhood were selling for & kept me alerted every time a house sold (and the trend of prices). She's given me practical advice on what to spruce up in my home (and what not to spend $$ on for buyers in my price range). As far as shopping, she has been flexible with locations, very helpful with web searches, and willing to explore any neighborhood. She appears to do a great deal of research prior to visits/conversations. She is an amazing agent!! I recommend her to everyone I know.
