As a husband-and-wife team, Brian and Leslie offer clients a dynamic set of personal strengths.
Brian has worked in retail and customer service for 15 years and delivers personal attention and care beyond the normal agent-client relationship. Praised for being highly relatable and personable, he has spent a career helping people and cultivating relationships. 

Leslie is a former personal finance reporter and editor who is skilled at doing thorough research, writing clearly and working on a deadline. She easily applies these talents to real estate, whether she is tasked with finding the perfect apartment for renters or buyers or effectively marketing an apartment to sell or rent quickly.
Brian and Leslie specialize in the Upper East Side where they currently reside with their son, but know and have lived in a variety of neighborhoods, including the Financial District, Roosevelt Island and Long Island City in Queens. They have called New York home since 2007, when they moved to the Big Apple from Florida.
Brian is originally from North Carolina, but lived in Florida for more than 10 years. He attended Florida State University and is still an avid fan of their athletic teams. He is also a drummer who has played in numerous bands that have performed both in and outside the New York City area.

Leslie is a Florida native. She graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville with two bachelor's degrees in English and psychology. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and writing fiction, going to wine tastings, exploring New York and discovering new clothing boutiques.
With Brian’s background in sales and customer service and Leslie’s creativity and focus, this duo offers clients a variety of skills to help them buy, sell or rent their next home in New York.

Brian was prompt and helpful on our fast-paced apartment search. He showed us an apartment that matched his description and our price range. He was very knowledgeable about our questions and the NYC rental market, and even answered questions about our current apartment lease. We ended up renting a different apartment, but I would recommend Brian!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Brian and Leslie were absolutely wonderful throughout the entire apartment hunting process. They responded immediately and were available throughout the entire application process with any questions we had. They were honest, friendly, and knowledgeable about the market and found us a fantastic apartment.

While we have worked with other realtors in the past, we have not always had such a great experience and were very happy working with the McFaddens. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking in NYC they really go above and beyond to help you find what you're looking for!

He took the time to figure out our needs/wants to research and show listings accordingly. Would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable agent.

Brian and Leslie got in touch with me and since the beggining they where extremely helpfull and nice! They showed me a lot of apartments and tried to look for more due to my difficult conditions(short term, furnished,location)
I really enjoyed worked with Leslie and unfortunately at the end I found an apartment by myself.. I would really recommend them as agents especially if you are new in the city!
