Native Houstonian Leslie Karpas began her sales career as a travel agent in leisure sales. That experience taught Leslie the importance of impeccable service and market knowledge. It also taught her to remember to respect the sense of occasion that accompanies an important lifetime event such as the vacation of a lifetime – or even more significantly, a new home.
A career in residential real estate was a natural transition for Leslie. “My husband, Hedley, is a broker and I have been living and breathing residential transactions for the past 20 years,” she says. As a Realtor with Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty, Leslie recognizes that the purchase or sale of a home is a major milestone in someone’s life. “My clients’ happiness and satisfaction are on the top of my list,” Leslie says. “Outstanding customer service is a must; all of my clients’ goals are of the utmost importance to me.”
Leslie believes in keeping abreast of trends in the real estate market and has earned the National Association of Realtors Green Designation. She serves on the boards of Seven Acres Jewish Senior Care Services and Congregation Beth Israel Sisterhood. Leslie is also a co-founder of the Young Ambassadors of SEARCH Homeless Services.
Leisure hours for Leslie are spent watching Houston Texans’ football game, enjoying long walks and spending time with family and friends. She and her husband Hedley are the parents of a teenager and a college student.
