Leslie grew up in northern Rhode Island and spent childhood summers on Bonnet Shores Beach in Narragansett. After graduation from Smith College, she spent much of her professional career in Boston, DC and Chicago where she held a variety of senior marketing positions for luxury hotels including Westin and Marriott. Prior to making the leap into real estate, Leslie was Sr. VP of Marketing for the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau.
After moving to Newport, Leslie joined the family brokerage as marketing manager. A year later, she began selling, and 18 months after shifting from marketing to sales, Leslie outpaced 50 of her peers to become the company’s top producing agent. Since that time she has sold hundreds of homes in and around Newport. Today, Leslie is a principal at Hogan Associates – the company she and Matt Hadfield started in 2009. A proficient internet marketer, graphic designer and member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, Leslie offers a wide variety of global marketing tools to luxury home sellers. She has an impressive list of high-end sales, a loyal following of satisfied clients and impeccable references.
