Leesa Haire has been involved in the healing arts for over twenty years. Her ability to connect with clients is wonderful. She is excited about every transaction and there is often a celebration she’s arranged at the end. Her community involvement as a board member of the Mimbres Regional Arts Council and a director and president of the Dos Griegos II Homeowners Association connects her to people and the community in a way that benefits her clients and helps them find ways to join the community. She is intuitive and supportive and wants everyone involved in a transaction to be smiling at its conclusion.
Justin Wecks has a Bachelor's degree and has been Hacienda's top producer in real estate since he started. He joined the team after a career as an educator, where he spent 11 years in the classroom as an elementary teacher. Justin focuses on educating his clients with a belief that this empowers them in situations that would otherwise be challenging. His teaching background has given him amazing patience and he can push everything else aside to focus on his clients’ needs and dreams, and their timeline. He is knowledgeable and professional. He recently brokered transactions for over 2.5 million in just one quarter.
As you will see, my team of brokers at Hacienda are educated, knowledgeable and experienced, and all of them love working with people and building relationships. They are highly-motivated but are able to focus on the needs of others and work at their pace, which enables them to educate and empower our clients in situations that arise, even when they could be confusing and difficult otherwise. They will walk you through negotiating a contract, guide you through the home inspection, and sit beside you at the settlement table, working to be sure you maintain your sanity and have a smile on your face at the end.
