Hi, my name is Leigh Haake (pronounced Lee Hockey). I am a realtor for The Curtis Johnson Team, brokered by eXp Realty. I love everything about real estate; I love looking at homes; I love watching HGTV; I love decorating, staging furniture, remodeling, building, but most of all I would love helping you. I am super organized and detail oriented. My whole goal is to work for you and listen to you to find you your perfect home.
My husband and I have bought and sold 6 homes over the last 24 years. We have had easy transactions and we have been through a nasty one. We have moved from Seattle to Denver and then 7 years later from Denver to Gilbert, AZ. Our move to Arizona was miserable. The buyer in Colorado caused us to have 11 extensions, many tears, and lots of expense – I vow to not let that happen to one of my clients. I truly understand the amount of stress moving interstate can cause. I will help you, so your experience is smooth.
I knew growing up in Seattle, with the clouds and rain, that one day I would end up in Arizona. With my husband’s transfer, we made it! I love the sun and have thoroughly enjoyed living in the East Valley. We have lived here since 2016 and I have already seen how the valley has changed and grown. The businesses that have moved into the area makes this a great location to live. It is a very family oriented area, with great schools and easy access to all the freeways and the airport.
When I’m not working my family is number one. Team Haake includes my husband of 24 years, Jeff; our 16yo son Brady, who plays competitive golf, our 13yo daughter, Peyton, our Llaso Apso, Mykie, and our Holland Lop Bunny, Thoren. I love to hike, kayak, read, workout, travel, volunteer at Feed My Starving Children and United Food Bank, and knit. I have traveled to 28 states, sailed around the world on Semester at Sea, and been to 37 countries. I look forward to working with you – let’s do this!
