Howard Hanna Names Leslie Moore to Southeast Management Team

Virginia Beach, VA (November 18, 2019) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, the third largest real estate company in the nation, has named Leslie Moore to the position of Managing Broker of its Smithfield office.

A native of the Peninsula, with her family history dating back to the 1600s, Moore is a graduate of St. Leo University, where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Management. She began her real estate career in 2012 when she joined Howard Hanna as an agent.  No stranger to the real estate industry, Moore has many family members locally in the business.  As an agent, she was consistently a multi-million-dollar producer with a competitive edge that led her in 2017 to open her own residential brokerage.

“We are thrilled to welcome Leslie back to Howard Hanna.  She has the experience of being a top tier producer and a principal broker/owner. Her unique skill set is very hard to find, and her familiarity with our brand and our culture make her even more of an asset to the company,” said Dennis Cestra, Jr., Howard Hanna Southeast Regional President.  “I’m confident Leslie will make what’s already Smithfield’s largest broker, even stronger.”

“I am excited to rejoin my Howard Hanna family as the Managing Broker of the Smithfield office. I look forward to using my experience to grow our office and continue as the top real estate company in Smithfield,” said Moore.
