  • 2021 Ulster County Board of Realtors Top Producer

After spending 15 years living in Brooklyn and escaping to the Catskills for weekends, I decided to take the plunge and purchase a home in Woodstock, New York. It has been both inspiring and eye opening. The area offers a vibrant culture; a thriving food scene and some much needed fresh air. As a lifelong New York State resident who grew up in Western New York and spent most of my adult life in New York City and Upstate New York, I can wholeheartedly say, “I love New York.”

I am a top producing, award winning, global luxury certified real estate agent. Areas of service include Ulster, Dutchess, Greene and Sullivan Counties. I assist both buyers and sellers in a wide range of price points and home styles. I have immense pride for my work and the clients I assist. Prior to transitioning into real estate, I worked as an executive in marketing and merchandising. That experience has allowed me to develop my own unique skill set that gets properties sold quickly. I have a keen eye for design and have the intuition to quickly match buyers with their perfect home. I offer expert guidance in today’s fast paced, ever changing market.

I am a wife, mother of a toddler and a dog mom. I have a wide range of interests including a love of animals, vintage t-shirts, cooking and collecting house plants. Curious by nature, I’m always on the hunt for new local shops, restaurants and activities in the area. I’m putting roots down upstate and am passionate about helping others do the same in this wonderful place I call home.

Testimonials

Leslie Foti is simply the BEST. After viewing several homes with her, she wrote to us one morning with the subject line "Your next house". And she was right. She fought through other offers and wouldn't quit (meeting us several times over various weekends while 8 months pregnant, mind you) and secured our now current dream home. She kept costs down, got us several credits and even made sure the house was nicely landscaped the day we arrived to close. The entire process was not only not stressful, it was fun and easy, all thanks to her. You won't find a better agent so try to snatch her up if you can!

I've passed on Leslie Foti's contact to friends and neighbors. She immediately selected top notched properties in my price range. I made my choice during the first visit. She is knowledgeable about the buildings, neighborhoods, paper filing process and scope of renovations. This is my 3rd home purchase and by far the least stressful. Every step of the process was clearly explained by her and the people she recommended to work with me. Much appreciated experience.

- Phi Nguyen

Leslie Foti was THE BEST. She helped me find the most perfect little house, and was an invaluable guide as I moved through the process of becoming a first-time homeowner. She gave me pro tips on how to move through a bidding war, shared all of her local handyfolk (e.g. plumbers, electricians) with me, and even coordinated visits with them where necessary when I was out of town. Plus, she's just a really fun, lovely person. I can't recommend her enough!

Leslie Foti was knowledgeable about the market and kept us informed about the sale of our home. She was wonderful! Very helpful.

- Mary Lou Chatterton

Selling a home is both an emotional and financial adventure. It helps to have someone who has both expertise and enthusiasm to guide you in the process. Leslie Foti is that someone. She has a keen sense of the market and employs a variety of creative ways to reach buyers. However what is most impressive about Leslie is her passion for architectural detail. She loved every aspect of my home and she shared that love with everyone who came to view it. I am sure it was her passion and perseverance that facilitate a very easy process. I cannot say enough about Leslie’s skills. She is a real gem.

Leslie Foti is amazing. From start to finish she understood what I was looking for as an investor and helped me to find the needle in the haystack. What I appreciate most about her is her access to resources. Not only did she help me find the perfect investment property but she connected me reliable local contractors that could help me do the work. She regularly checked in and was there to help move the process forward when unforeseen delays popped up (issues with survey, etc.). She was reassuring, professional and helped me to close a really good deal in a tight market. I will use her again for sure and have already recommended her to several of my friends. I am lucky to have found her!

Leslie Foti was superb! We were first time buyers in the US and Leslie walked us through the process and supported us at every step. She was so responsive and made the process so much easier and of course found the perfect house for us!

- Zillow User: jennifermstevens js

Leslie Foti was so helpful as we navigated the process of buying our first home. She promptly responded to all emails and answered all of our questions. I would recommend her to everyone. Thanks, Leslie!

- Jacqueline Frances

I highly recommend Leslie Foti as the best agent I have ever worked with. She is not only excellent professional but aslo exceptional person. We were looking for the vacation place in Catskill. She listens to our needs and respected our wish-list. Leslie presented many interesting listing and supported us in choosing the right place. We could always rely on her expertise and support. She help us gather information on the place and did her magic to locate some valid papers. What my husband and I valued the most was her responsiveness. She promptly responded to our every email and every request. She made herself available 24/7.

- Zillow User: zuser20160323161214114

Leslie Foti is the best. Easy to work with. She’s smart and gets things done. She provided easy access and had tips for me during and after the purchase. Straight shooter with a smile. I have recommended Leslie to friends and will continue to do so.

- Zillow User: brymullen

Leslie Foti is the best! She showed me countless houses over the last year or more, and my search finally came to an end when she showed me a house a little outside of where I had been looking and it ended up being perfect. She was great throughout the process (I ended up getting the house even with several other offers on the table) and I'm sure we'll have many more encounters both personally and professionally. Use Leslie.

- Nick Marchese

We worked with Leslie Foti on the purchase of our first home in Sullivan County and she was a dream to work with from start to finish. She was always on top of everything, was super responsive, and had our best interest at heart. She put us at ease when necessary and made sure everything went as smooth as possible. We'd recommend her without reservation!

- Zillow User: cmvogel24

Leslie Foti helped us sell our mid century modern ranch in Pleasant Valley after my wife and I moved to California. She was amazing! She knew how and where to market this very specific style house and was there to coordinate with vendors while we were 3000 miles away. She has a wide clientele and would recommend her for anyone who is selling or buying a unique property in upstate NY! We couldn't be happier in our choice to go with her.

- Jason Slack

Leslie Foti was so helpful throughout the whole process. She knew exactly what we where looking for and went above and beyond to find us our dream home upstate. She has excellent knowledge and great contacts.

- Amber Little-Campbell

Leslie Foti is in my opinion the best in the business. She is more thorough and thoughtful than any other broker I've worked with. She was patient in answering any and all questions about the area from engineers to contractors to lawyers to bars and restaurants to antique stores. She painstakingly took me through what could have felt like very complicated and nerve wracking issues with buying a 300 year program old house, answered every email within a 24 hour period and is an honest and kind person to boot.

- Stacy London

I can't recommend Leslie Foti enough. Not only did she listen to everything we were looking for, she suggested listings that we never considered after getting to know us a bit-- and guess what, we picked one of her properties! This was my family's first home purchase and she guided us through the entire process answering any questions we had and assisting where she could. I am grateful for Leslie's help!

- Zillow User: zuser20151205124628359

Leslie Foti is an incredible realtor. My husband & I were all over the place in terms of what we were looking for and in which part of the Catskills. Her keen listening abilities allowed her to hone in on the similarities of what we both wanted in a property. We expected the process of finding the ideal house on the ideal property would take several years, but with Leslie guiding us, it took less than 6 months. Leslie was always quick to respond to our questions, and actively combed through listings and contacting us whenever something came on the market of interest – very important in a market where houses sell quickly. She was honest & straightforward with her opinions on the pros & cons of the houses we viewed and guided us through every step of purchasing our home – even through the closing which took place during NY Pause from Covid-19. We could not have asked for a better realtor than Leslie.

- Zillow User: cirick7

Leslie Foti understood exactly what we were looking for in a home, and found us some really great homes to look at during our search. She was so patient throughout the search, and when we found our dream house, she was beyond helpful throughout the buying process. It has been a pleasure working with her!

- Lisa Foti

Leslie Foti was the best! She actually listened to our needs and budget and only showed us places that fit into that criteria. She also gave us options slightly outside of those as more educational aspects of what could be available. She knows all the people in the area too- plumbers, builders etc. very upbeat and kind. Would highly recommend Leslie to anyone looking in the Hudson Valley!

- Zillow User: user6280945

Working with Leslie Foti was helpful beyond belief. Every house she showed me fit my criteria and I felt all were within reason to buy. She completely understood my aesthetic and need for finding a house easy to do weekend commutes to and from the city. She's extremely knowledgeable about the Catskill region and went above and beyond in helping me get everything inline for the purchase. She really helped ease my mind throughout the whole process of being a first time home buyer. She was very helpful in answering all of my questions very quickly. I would highly recommend reaching out to Leslie if you are considering buying a home in the Catskill area.

- Jessica Smith

Leslie Foti is hands down the best real estate agent we've ever worked with. We really felt like she was on our side during the whole process, from giving honest feedback around the value of a property, to helping with negotiating, all the way to making sure we were completely satisfied with our closing experience. We never felt like she was pushing us to do something we were uncomfortable with just to close the deal. We can't recommend her highly enough!

- Zillow User: user20161130195454256

Leslie Foti was the absolute best thing that could have happened to me when I started this purchase process! I went with every one of her recommendations and am so glad I stayed local for my lawyer, inspector, and even funding. I know that I'm well set up for whatever comes my way at my new home and she has made herself more available than I could imagine. I read so many horror stories in forums during my purchase process and had absolutely no issues at all and I know that Leslie was a huge part of that! Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking in the Catskills area.
