About Me

I was born in Scotland and emigrated with my family to New Jersey when my father, a Tool & Die Maker with IBM, found a new job in the United States.  My parents thought we could have a better life in the US and my father's skills were highly in demand at that time.
My husband, Barry, is a Vietnam Veteran and a Marine.  We have been married since 1976 although no children of our own we have many nephews and nieces.  And my great nephew is currently serving in the US Navy.
It is my goal is to be my client's Agent for Life.  To achieve this goal the first step is to listen to my client's needs and then do my best to help and protect them through each step of their search whether buying or selling a home.
I was first licensed as an Agent in 1982 and then as an Associate Broker in 1984.  So far, in my long real estate career, I have spent 29 years as an Associate Broker with Century 21.
During this time I became a US Citizen and also graduated from NOVA, Summa Cum Laude, with an Associates Degree in Legal Assisting in 1999.  Although I have never worked as a paralegal, my education has made me a better agent as I have more understanding of the law and can guide my clients as to pitfalls and keep them on the right track.  And, of course, know when it may be time to consult an attorney.
I have received many awards for sales throughout the years, but more importantly has been my dedication to each client's needs.  Clients come back to me over and over again and now send their children to me for real estate help as they know I will ensure they are treated fairly and honestly.
As an active, local agent, I am available to address all of my client's real estate needs whether town or country, condo, land or mansion, my decades of experience ensure all my client's real estate needs are met.

“One couldn't ask for a more professional, competent and friendly realtor. Lesley Goodnow is a "real pro" and works very hard for her client!”
Mary Louise Harrison (Buyer)
“If it wasn't for Lesley we never would have gotten the home we wanted. She went above and beyond in providing professionalism and knowledge about the whole ordeal. Seeing how incompetent the agent from ReMax was showed us how lucky we were to find someone like Lesley. When we decide to move again. She'll be the first person we call. See previous comments. But also... Lesley listens. We've dealt with other agents who try and monopolize us with their agendas. Lesley listens and provides what we're looking for. It's refreshing. ”

Angie, Manassas (Buyer)
“Lesley gave us great advice throughout the process and was dead-on about the price we could expect to get for our home. Many times she "talked us off the ledge" when we were anxious about various aspects of the process, remaining calm and sensible and providing us with information that ultimately saved us time and money. We were also extremely impressed with her handling of the contract negotiations with the prospective and final buyers. Her savvy -- and attention to detail -- enabled us to get the best possible outcome of the two offers we received. Thanks so much, Lesley!”
Gina Ash, Gainesville, Virginia (Seller)
“Lesley kept in constant contact with me with phone calls and emails. This was a "crazy" sale/purchase. Being a tri-state sale/purchase there were many hoops to jump through. We had never used a realtor before and she walked us through each step of the way. As I was browsing the internet for houses, Lesley contacted me; sent me info on possible housing; and met with us when it was convenient for us as we visited VA. Lesley was superb! Lesley guided us through the many hoops we had to go through. Was always there when we needed her help. She was very easy to work with!”
Judy and Rich Obrokta, Goldvein, VA (Buyer)
“Lesley is fantastic - she was our landlord for 2 1/2 years when we rented a unit locally, and we loved her so much we made her our broker. She was always exactly on time, always pleasant, well informed, always made time for me and my husband. We had a great experience with her and would absolutely recommend her to our friends!”
Vanessa Perez, Bristow VA (Buyer)

Karen Gilbert, Westminster MD (Seller)
“Lesley took the time to show us many houses until we found the one that fit us. there were several houses that i had on my list and Lesley took the time to research each house for our needs so we could either continue to look at them or remove them from our list, VERY important so we didn't waste time looking at something that just wasn't going to work for our needs. Lesley was always available day or night to answer any questions i had!! You can't go wrong when you have someone that goes above and beyond for you.”
Pam Day - Culpeper, VA (Buyer)
