Virginia Beach, VA (July 31, 2020) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services is pleased to announce that Leslie Moore, managing broker of the Smithfield office, has been named managing broker of the Peninsula office. Former managing broker Sandy Yoder Wagner, after an illustrious 12-year leadership career with Howard Hanna, will be retiring from day-to-day management to take a consulting role with the company.
“Leslie is a positive force in our business and community. She will do a tremendous job,” said Wagner.
A lifelong native of the Peninsula, Moore began her real estate career as a sales associate in the Peninsula office and became a perennial multi-million-dollar producer. She was then tapped to lead the Howard Hanna Smithfield office. Throughout her tenure at Smithfield, Moore has helped bolster Howard Hanna’s #1 market share in the area, while helping grow the office and its roster of agents.
“I am thrilled to be working closer with the Peninsula team. I have known a lot of these great people for many years, and this feels like a homecoming. Leading the Peninsula office has always been my dream job, and I am excited for the opportunity ahead,” said Moore.
“When you look for a real estate manager and leader, Sandy Yoder Wagner doesn’t fit the model, but is the model. Leslie was mentored throughout her career by Sandy. She embodies a unique skill set of drive and care for her sales associates. Leslie is a bright star in our company, and I know she will take the Peninsula office to new heights,” said Dennis Cestra, President of Howard Hanna Southeast.
Moving forward, Moore will oversee the Smithfield and Peninsula offices. To buy or sell a home in Southeast Virginia, or to join the Howard Hanna team, contact Leslie Moore at LeslieMoore@HowardHanna.com, or call (757) 357-3217 (Smithfield) or (757) 595-8895 (Peninsula).
