Whoo ... Are You?
I am Leslie Lang. I was born in Memphis, Tennessee, raised in Little Rock, Arkansas, and have now lived in Asheville, North Carolina for 14 years. When I began my career, I was a single mom. I started out working in Real Estate and my favorite transactions were helping other single moms purchase their first home. Now I work at Givens Estate where I help men and women select their home in a Life Plan community.
