Testimonials:“Do you know anyone who would tour neighborhoods with you at 10pm, with flashlights, because that was the only time you had to look for properties? We do! We’ll never forget our nocturnal drive with Leslie Hillel through the Devon section of Amagansett, our very first time with her as our real estate agent.

We love our centuries-old saltbox, and we couldn’t have found it without Leslie’s tenacious, supportive, and creative work.” – Barbara and Jonathon M.
