About Us | Leslie McFadden Real Estate | Real Living Northwest, REALTORS®

About Our Team


Leslie became a Realtor® in 2005 in Ohio, and she was full-time from Day 1. She never even contemplated starting out on a part-time basis. She quickly established her business in Columbus, one of the fastest growing real estate markets in the Midwest, and by 2015 she was managing a team of 5.

As a small business owner, Leslie has always been a dedicated member of the local Chambers of Commerce, helping to build and support the community. She has served on boards, run committees, and established new subgroups and networking groups within the chamber organizations.

In 2016, Leslie and her husband, Kevin, decided to make a major change and move the business to the Pacific Northwest in Bothell, where they also reside, truly immersing themselves in the Northshore communities to the fullest.

Leslie grew up in Austin, Texas where she attended Southwest Texas State University and served as a Logistics Specialist in the US Army, based at Fort Hood. Afterwards, she spent 9 years in corporate interior design and sales, where she identified that delivering dedicated, personalized customer service was her gift. She also believed that the sense of security and contentment in life are vitally important, and she became a Realtor to help her clients obtain these things for themselves and their families.

One thing that sets Leslie apart from other agents in the industry is her Certification in Negotiation. Real estate transactions can become extremely complex, and knowing how to strategize and negotiate the best outcome quickly is crucial. There is never a doubt in a client’s mind that Leslie fought for the best result possible.

Leslie enjoys supporting the Northshore communities and is an active member of the Bothell-Kenmore and Woodinville Chambers of Commerce. Leslie and Kevin enjoy biking, hiking, and enjoying the PNW lifestyle.
