Jim & Leslie Read, Realtors®
Hi, this is Leslie, half of Jim and Leslie Read. Thank you for supporting the ministry of WAY FM. Below is an overview of who we are and what we do. Jim is a commercial Realtor® and I am a residential Realtor®. We work at Keller Williams Realty assisting people with their real estate needs. We enjoy connecting and collaborating with other like-minded agents as well. Our mission: We help people move forward in life!
Over 15 years ago, Jim and I became a team… Jim worked in the mortgage business and I worked as a FL Realtor. Over the years, we rode through the ups and downs of the real estate rollercoaster and went through some major family crises. We had to go through the lowest of valleys to understand that God can pull us through anything. (Matthew 6:33) Our life lessons have been very valuable in helping others.
Jim and I have extensive experience in our industry individually and collectively- going on 3 decades. We are networkers and connectors; we believe in teaming up with others as there’s power when people share their gifts and experiences.
Our connections extend from family to church to the business community; it’s our desire to keep God front and center in all areas. We are strong advocates of Financial Peace University and Malachi 3:10.
Jim’s background includes real estate, teaching (he has taught real estate, mortgage, business and networking classes), recruiting, mortgage lending, commercial lending and banking. Jim is a designated KW Commercial agent and has a broker’s license. He has a MA Degree in Education and an instructor’s license in real estate.
I have experience and training in real estate, senior/social services, sales and management. I work in general real estate; however, I am often called to sell properties for elderly adults and those who have lost loved ones. I am a designated Seniors Real Estate Specialist® and have a broker’s license. I have a BA Degree in Communications and a Graduate Certificate in Geriatric Care Management (care planning for aging adults).
On a personal note, Jim and I are very blessed to have many relatives, 2 daughters, 2 sons-in-law, 4 grandkids and a very large extended church family. Jim loves to coach and mentor people. I love to write and sing praise music. We love being with people. Church is not a building; it’s the body of Christ…we hope to meet you soon.
Keep smiling and keep the faith… Leslie for Jim and Leslie Read
