Print Agent Bio

Originally from England, I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2010, happy to begin calling the Pacific Northwest home. I have traveled and seen many cities and landscapes around the world, and I truly believe we are lucky enough to be in one of the best places to live. With lush green surroundings, four seasons (I couldn’t live without some rain), mountain and river views all around, and the seaside only a short drive away, what is there not to love? 

After working with the Portland Timbers for 4 years since their inaugural MLS season, I was able to connect with the local community and learn a lot about the Portland and Vancouver area. With so much to do, whether you enjoy outdoor activities, trying out some of the incredible local restaurants and breweries, or just watching a show at one of the various venues around the area, there really is something for everyone here!

With that in mind, I now enjoy combining my skills and love for this area, to help you find your new home, while you sit back and enjoy where we live. Having a clear understanding of what buyers and/or sellers are looking to achieve is a key component to my service from start to finish, and beyond. I look forward to meeting you!

Leigh was fabulous to work with! He was very accommodating of our crazy, busy schedule; even meeting with us at soccer practice one night. He is very personable and helpful, fielding our numerous qu estions and concerns quickly. While several agents hounded and pressured us to list with them, Leigh simply sent us a note in the mail, introducing himself, and left the decision to us. I called with some general questions about real estate and he talked with me for nearly half an hour with no indication that I planned to list with him. Leigh simply gave his time and knowledge because he is a kind, helpful, upstanding person. I would work with him again anytime!

Leigh was amazing throughout our home buying process. Its hard to ask much more from a realtor. He was present for each and every meeting, inspection, and bump in the road. Though it was a little scary diving into our first home, Leigh made is so extremely easy and comfortable. Would HIGHLY recommend if you want honest opinions of houses, and someone that is willing to spend the time to get you into the RIGHT home, not just any home. We will absolutely be using Leigh again if we ever decide to increase our family size and need a bigger home.

— Scott A.

We were so fortunate to have found Leigh Calvert when we looking to purchase a new home. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to sell me a house, but that he was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. We highly recommend Leigh to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

— Wendy S.

We lived in Sacramento, CA and when we decided to make the move to the pacific Northwest, a business associate in Vancouver WA referred us to Leigh Calvert to help us find a home. From the time we were introduced, Leigh worked diligently to find out what our specific wants and needs and expectations were for a new home. He did face time walk thrus with potential homes for us and he helped us thru every process from making offers to every step thereafter towards our home purchase. When my husband flew to Portland to view homes we had chosen, Leigh blocked out an entire day and a half to show him every possible home. That's all the time it took Leigh to find our perfect house. I had to remind myself that he had other clients because the attention he spent on us never seemed to be diverted. We are so happy with our home and we have Leigh to thank for that. I whole heartedly and without hesitation, recommended Leigh as the broker you should consider if you are looking for a home to buy or thinking of listing your home. He is a winner!

— Deb & Chris C.

Jason and I were 1st time home buyers when we met Leigh at an open house at the beginning of our search. He took the time to help us understand the entire home buying process and helped us narrow down our search. He made the experience efficient, fun and manageable. He counseled us through a rough inspection and was there for us to answer our questions pretty much any time of day or night. We feel so thankful for having lucked into finding Leigh as a realtor to assist us with our 1st home buying experience. We wouldn’t even think about using anyone else in any of our future real estate transactions. Thank you Leigh! –Kirstie and Jason

— Jason & Kirstie

I cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about working with Leigh. I was very apprehensive about beginning the home buying process and he was there to walk my husband and myself through the entire process. He took the time to help us narrow down our wish list, referred us to a few different mortgage brokers so we could determine what financing options were the best for us and who we felt most comfortable with, regularly sent us listings he thought were good fits based off of our must have list, toured countless homes with us and continued to help narrow down our search, and when the time came that we found THE ONE, he was there to walk us through submitting an offer and helping us with the amount and closing date we felt comfortable with. Leigh also went above and beyond, sending us recommendations for inspectors and making sure he was at each and everyone one of our appointments throughout the process (inspection, follow up inspection, final walk through, loan signing) to ensure all of our questions were answered and we were confident in our decision. Waking up in our new home feels surreal and I can't help but think that we wouldn't be here if it weren't for Leigh's guidance. Thank you Leigh!

— Gwen A.

Amazing! Very honest and hard working. Flexible and will work with you to make sure you get to see the homes you want even if you work insane hours. There was a handful of homes we saw late at night, or would find and call him and go see that day. Honestly we went through 4 realtor before we found Leigh and couldn't of been happier! He was always professionally, never pushy and always went the extra mile to find out any information we had in a property or loan type. Would recommend him to anyone!

— April E.

Leigh helped us Purchase our first home. Leigh was patient and kind helping us through the process and answering all the crazy questions I had, as well as my fiances questions. He was honest and upfront gave us his opinion but ultimately followed whatever we asked of him, His advice was helpful and thorough. Leigh made this experience for us one that we will never forget, He was not only our realtor he was also a friend. We are pleased with the outcome and would recommend Leigh to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Our experience couldn't have been any better. Thanks Leigh for all your hard work and thoughtfulness through this process.

— Michelle A.

What was great about working with Leigh is that he is available, dedicated to our needs and driven. He's not the agent that lists your house and sits back and waits for a call. He's out there finding buyers and doesn't stop until it's sold. Always available and just getting the job done. That's Leigh!

— Laura O.

"I feel very fortunate to have found Leigh for my home buying process. So many realtors are lazy given how hot our area market is. Not Leigh, even after normal work hours he made sure I found what I was looking for and didn't stop until the deal was done. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend him not just as a realtor but as a person."

"Leigh is amazing to work with! This was my first time buying a house and the demands and price point were a challenge. I had been looking off and on for over two years and had worked with two other realtors before Leigh. I recommend Leigh to anyone who is currently trying to sell their home or is in the market for a new house.

Leigh is great at what he does, but it is more than that. He listens to what you want, discusses the logistics of it and is willing to wait until you find exactly what you want. Leigh doesn’t push you into anything and is aware how big of a deal buying a home is for anyone – first time buyer or not. He is great at guiding through the process – the emotional ups and downs, struggling on compromising on some things. He is great at helping you see the big picture and discussing what are big items, what to hold on for and what could be added later. He handles so much of the process and handles as much of the stress as he can. He tends to come to you after he has a solution or something in process to reach a solution, when anything comes up. He was easy to work with, replied quickly at all times, and was willing to do last minute things. He helped make this process exciting and non-stressful, whereas my other experiences were not like this at all.

Leigh’s knowledge expands from the market, homes in interested areas, new constructions, contractors for various items or work to be done, and inspectors. He goes above and beyond to make sure the transaction is as easy and exciting for you as possible. You will not regret working with Leigh!"

Leigh was amazing in communicating with us, helping us find a solution with our sellers, and then all of his referrals for local home service people have been excellent. If you need a realtor in the Vancouver area(especially if you are relocating!) you HAVE to use Leigh."

"Leigh Calvert is a real estate broker who is transparent, results driven, and passionate. All of which is what you want from a realtor.

Leigh helped us sell our house for a price that we thought was fare, when other realtors told us to put it on the market for less. The end result-the house sold in approx. 2 weeks.

Leigh communicated well and made selling the house an easy process.

In addition, we decided to build a new home in Vancouver, WA and now Leigh has helped us through the house purchasing process.

Whether you are selling or buying, Leigh is the guy for you!"

"I don't write reviews, and yet here I am.

I have always been concerned and scared of purchasing my first house. It is a huge purchase with a lot of complexities but within my first call with Leigh I felt at ease. He takes a lot of the burden on himself and makes the paperwork, legalities, protocol, processes, and stress out of the home buying purchase. Whether it is making the tough decisions about what features you want in your home, the neighborhood you are searching within, or even whether you want to make an offer, his guidance was invaluable.

Additionally, I am saying this as a first time home buyer whose house hunt was not simple. I was moving from Seattle, had to do a lot of video conferencing and had one potential sale fall through during inspection. None of these issues caused any concern and Leigh helped to continue to put my wife and I at ease...even while we were managing a newborn.

Without question, I would point anyone looking for a new home toward Leigh Calvert. Home buying is not easy, but he will make it enjoyable. And no matter what happens during your process, as Leigh would say, "Everything happens for a reason.""

"As a first time buyer with my wife, I'm glad I got a referred to Leigh. He was very helpful and determined to find the right home for us. It took us at least five offers before we got our first home and it was worth it. He was always there to answer questions and did all the offers quickly. When I'm going to buy my next home I'm going to use him again. Thank you Leigh."
