About Leslie C.
Born and raised on Long Island's North Shore, Leslie C. French acquired an appreciation for the Gold Coast's fine estates and rich history at an early age. This lifelong interest, combined with an entrepreneurial spirit and a solid background in marketing and business, eventually led her to invest heavily in real estate both in Long Island and Manhattan. Her career experience marketing luxury goods broadened her understanding of, and appreciation for, the sales, purchase, rental and property management aspects of the real estate business. After experiencing some dissatisfaction with the current level of attention offered, Leslie and partners laid the groundwork for their future company and a higher standard for the real estate industry.
