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.

"Leigh came highly recommended from one of my moms friends. We are relocating from California and were having a hard time finding something while living out of the area. We had been looking in the Portland area with no luck and had decided to explore the Vancouver WA area. Leigh was great to work with from the very first phone call - and we were able to set up a meeting with him and my mom to go look at two properties we had our eye on. The second house ended up being “the one” according to my mom so we flew up that weekend to check it out and put in an offer. Leigh picked us up and showed us around a little before taking us to the house. Leigh is very funny, personable and he is a REALLY good realtor. Not one of those run of the mill ones, he really knows what he’s doing and is the kind of person to “get it done” and done quickly. There’s no waiting around, no stress, it’s all handled! We had our offer in and inspections scheduled for the next day. We had a little back and forth with the sellers but He was able to get us everything we wanted and needed in the contract. I forgot to ask to write in the play set in the yard for our son- but he already did it because he knew we would want it. My mom has been a realtor for most of my life and she is a damn good one- so I have seen many over the years and know what quality looks like. Leigh is much the same in how driven and smart he is when it comes to real estate and he is the guy you want in your corner. I wouldn’t even look at anyone else - you will be glad you chose Leigh and his team to help you. Thank you Leigh we adore you and appreciate everything you have done for us! We can’t say enough good things about you!!!"

"Leigh was recommended to me by a previous client of his, so when I decided to look at condos in Vancouver, I contacted him. He returned my call right away and we set up an appointment to view three possible condos. He was very knowledgeable about the area and walked me through each property. What impressed me the most was that he continually asked me what I liked and didn't like in order to understand better what it was I was looking for. I ended up not buying a place but his caring and attention was impressive. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home in the Vancouver area!"

"Where to start... Leigh is the best! We only have been working with 2 realtors one was our friend so we need it will be amazing and when we decided to buy a new house our friend gave us Leigh’s number! We won’t lie we were a bit scared because buying a house isn’t a small thing... but Leigh was there every step of way, he cared so much about what we were looking for. He did everything he could to follow our schedule which isn’t always easy but he did it anyway, so our little could have her naps. And even 2 years later we still see each other he care so much about everyone. We love him!

Thanks again we have the best house for our little family."

"Class act and always seemed available throughout the up-and-downs of home-buying! His knowledge of the market trends and minutiae made it easier for us to focus on running family while also viewing homes rather than doing necessary research and due diligence on the prospective homes. We trust him.

Prior to Leigh and after purchasing two homes previous, my perception of real estate agents was they were charming folks with pleasing personalities that were required to be a part of sale process. But this guy worked for us.

One time I will never forget is when my wife and I viewed a home with Leigh (and our 3 young kiddos) just prior to my daughter's softball game. We loved it but knew our back was to the wall due to finding out an offer was already on the table and seller setting deadline that was up in a matter of an hour. We realized scenario was not going to work due to softball commitment, thanked Leigh for spending the time, and then he said "what are you talking about, I like softball. Let's go." He LITERALLY sat in the stands with my family, explained the paperwork quickly and executed an offer for us in a matter of 45 minutes. Serious!

He knew who to contact for whichever specialist was needed when a concern popped up on a prospective home or when we needed to make a calculated decision based on specialized knowledge whether it was roof specialist, plumber, inspector, or a neighborhood report from a previous client. Defines full-service without us asking.

I still call/text him when I'm needing a referral for random stuff like painting house, handy work, car detailing, etc., knowing full well he's going to know someone that's solid and won't overcharge me. As he said, "my reputation is on the line and you guys need some good help...I'm going to make sure you're taking care of." This was almost a year after our home closed and he STILL takes account for our satisfaction and keeps the same face as when we met him initially. Genuinely cares.

In summary, the guy is an all around phenomenal individual who also happens to be a real estate agent. We couldn't be happier with him and know he's got our back from here on. Agent for life and now also a family friend. What's better than that?!"

"Leigh and his assistant, Erica, were accessible and stayed true to their word during the entire process. Leigh managed to sell our home, find us the perfect new home, and coordinate with the our seller’s seller to create (from what we saw) a seamless transaction. Our 10 year old son put it best when he said, “I hope Leigh is still selling houses when I’m older!”"

He was very helpful in getting me familiar with the areas in Vancouver and showing me points of interest. I was impressed with his depth of knowledge in the local laws and ability to know a good deal quickly.

Since we had been in our home over 24 years, we anticipated that the sale process would be difficult. But from the beginning to the close, Leigh made the process much easier to handle. He listened to our needs and concerns and straightforwardly, but kindly, guided us through pricing, preparation, listing, showing and a quick sale! His preparedness and cheerful confidence in our home’s value was so reassuring. And we were extremely happy with the outcome! Leigh is a terrific person, very generous and fun to work with.

"I've worked with other realtors in the past, but Leigh Calvert is outstanding and is in a class of his own! He is professional and friendly, with a GENUINE approach to customer service which is rare these days. In our first meeting he took the time to really understand what I was looking for as a buyer and jumped in right away showing me homes. His communication and responsiveness was always prompt and included the right amount of details. He was attentive and walked through the whole buying process with me, even gave me a clever closing gift at the end. I highly recommend Leigh to anyone buying a home in the Portland/Vancouver area, you won't be disappointed having him on your team!"

"If you are looking for the perfect realtor, look no further! There are not enough words to describe the positive experience we had in working with Leigh. He is a gentleman of outstanding character. He is dedicated, responsive, full of energy, easy going, funny, non-pretentious, inquisitive to our every need, focused on us and knowledgeable of Vancouver and the surrounding communities (shops, restaurants, brew pubs, and more). A downright perfect realtor and British fellow. Moving from Ohio to Washington was a daunting experience, but finding Leigh made it painless, quick, and easy. We flew into PDX for one week on a house hunting trip and Leigh spent practically the entire week dedicated to helping us find a new home. On day one, he picked us up at our hotel and spent dawn to dusk driving us to a variety of communities in and around Vancouver, explaining the history, culture, and also gaining insight into our preferences in home likes and dislikes. Most importantly, Leigh is “connected” to a multitude of area realtors and was able to find our new home before it even went on the market. We knew from the first day we spent with Leigh that we had found the perfect realtor and person, and that day, we made our first friend in Vancouver."
