Meet the Team

Leigh Brown

CEO and Dream Maker

 

I stepped into the real estate world in 2000, joining forces with my father (Darrell Thomas) who had a successful residential real estate company. As a native of Cabarrus County, I have a thorough understanding and knowledge of the Queen City and the thriving, unique communities that surround our fair city. My business thrives on repeat business and solid client relationships, and I am not ashamed to tout that over 70% of my clients are referrals.

 

I live in Harrisburg, a NE suburb of Charlotte, with my husband Steve and my two middle school children. In my (rare) free time, I enjoy running, playing piano, and volunteering for Meals On Wheels.

 

A proud graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, I feel that continuous education is of the utmost importance.

 

My current designations include:

– ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), AHWD (At Home With Diversity designation), CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), CLHMS (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist), CIPS (Certified Internation Property Specialist), MilRES (certified to assist with military housing), CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert), ecoBroker (knowledge of green building options), ePRO (technology skills), FiveStar (foreclosure expertise), SFR (Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource), SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist).

Spending time with my clients to best understand what is in their best interest is fun for me. I enjoy showing off the real estate in the Queen City and all of her surrounding communities – it is where I have lived since 1994 and I love it! I have over 20 years’ experience in real estate and new construction and have been told that I am a savvy, skilled negotiator. Wanna put me to the test?

I am an avid dog lover and am partial to my sweet rescue pup, Chili. My husband, Bill, and I live in the great community of Harrisburg. We have one partially grown son, Noah, who is currently in college.

Denise Pagano

I have lived in the Queen City for almost 30 years – time flies when you are having fun! Initially “city life” was an adjustment, having grown up on a farm. Looking back, I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I obtained my NC and SC broker licenses in 2000 and I have extensive experience and knowledge in both new home sales and resales. Both have given me invaluable insight into the home selling process. Every client deserves my best effort and I approach each transaction with a genuine desire to help others accomplish their goals.

When not working, I spend time with my husband and two (grown) children, plus my sweet Pomeranian, Lacy. I believe strongly in giving back to my community, therefore, I volunteer regularly for Samaritan’s Purse, Friendship Trays, and Habitat for Humanity.

Jennifer Campbell

Working as Wanda Holsclaw’s Showing Partner, I have a blast helping people find the home that is ideal for their situation. As a former Registered Veterinary Technician, I have the innate ability to nurture and guide my clients. Their needs and concerns are my number one priority.

I’m an avid equestrian and am proud to say that I was “raised in a barn” having grown up in Cedar Square (a dairy farm district in Randolph County, North Carolina). Most of my free time is spent riding my horse, reading, or enjoying the outdoors with my family which includes my husband, James, and our two children, Vivian and Colton.

Virginia Halter

With the love and support of my wonderful husband, Jonathan, I have been a full-time Realtor for 13 years. I joined the team in 2010 and haven’t looked back. I am passionate about educating buyers and sellers on the Leigh Brown Experience and I feel that every transaction should receive the best service imaginable.

When I am not in the office I can be seen running around town or cooking up a good meal to distract me from our newly empty nest (it really is an adjustment). I am one of those elusive NC natives; the few and the proud!

I joined the team in the Fall of 2010 and have loved every minute of it! As the Client Care Manager, I am the go-to person when it comes to coordinating the closings for our clients. I also work closely with our bank partners to ensure smooth short sale transactions.It is my goal to make our client’s purchasing/selling process seamless!

My son, Nathan, and I live right in the heart of friendly Harrisburg, NC. We have a frisky pup (who wants to remain anonymous) and spend football season rooting for the Panthers!

Pia Torres

Born and raised in the great state of New York, I never thought I would leave. But then, my parents moved South and my family and I quickly followed! I have enjoyed living in Charlotte since 2014. My avid interest in real estate is what enticed me to come work with Leigh Brown & Associates and I have thoroughly enjoyed being the Quality Control Manager & Event Coordinator for the team.

Exploring Charlotte with my family fills my free time, as does spending time teaching children at our church, cooking, and reading.

Ryan Pagano

Born and raised in the Queen City, I am proud to say I am a TRUE Charlotte native! I attended UNC-Asheville and found that my Bachelor of Arts degree was supplemented by the fact that I excel at building relationships. Having grown in up in a real estate family, I have a true understanding of how the sale and purchase of a home can impact someone’s life and I wanted to be a part of that! I am thrilled to be working alongside my mother, Denise, as well as working as a Judicial Sales Associates for a law firm in South Charlotte where I coordinate the sale of real and personal property from estates, guardianships, and partitions. This experience has provided me with a unique skillset in which I am able to assist people who find themselves in difficult or complicated real estate situations.

When not spending quality time with my overly emotional (and attached) dog, I can often be found acting as a free mechanic to my friends or filling up my Amazon cart with random things.
