“We cannot think of anything Leslie could have done better in the sale of my late father’s home. While his home was beautiful and in a fantastic location, it was very dated and we live 400 miles away. Leslie knew the local market, gave us a realistic opinion of the value and put a lot of time and thought into what our priorities needed to be in order to sell the house quickly. She respected our thoughts and concerns throughout the process. The contractors she recommended for the updates did a great job. We have never had a real estate agent keep us as up to date as Leslie did. As closing approached, she went out of her way to assist us in tracking down the necessary documentation and signatures which was a huge help as we work and are so far away from Brevard. The most important things to me were that she was a pleasure to interact with and we came to trust her more and more as time went on.”

Florida is a large subtropical state that experiences hurricanes. Although Brevard county is located along Florida’s eastern peninsula, it is less frequently impacted by direct hurricane landfalls than portions of the Panhandle or South Florida. There are two predominant reasons for this. First, westward moving tropical systems often reach an atmospheric ridge weakness in the Bermuda High by the time they approach Florida at a latitude as northerly as Brevard County. Combined with frontal systems that exit the United States’ East Coast, many of these tropical systems are steered northwest and eventually curve northward offshore along Florida’s East Central Coast. A second reason is that hurricanes landfalling along the Florida peninsula Gulf Coast often weaken to a tropical storm by the time they move northeast to affect Brevard County (with some exceptions, such as 2004’s Charley). No major hurricane, defined as category 3 or higher, has ever struck Brevard since 1850, the beginning of recorded climate.
