My Family

Laura Leiden: My wife is the Pete Rose of Real Estate. Nobody works harder to get deals closed. After over 30 years as owner of Laura Leiden Calligraphy; she decided to go into real estate just in time for the Great Recession. She then proceeded to be voted New Agent of the Year & has earned Circle of Achievement for the past 2 years.

Maria Leiden Jackson: Graduated from the Honors Program at College of Charleston this spring. Maria graduated on time with double majors in Women's Studies & Psychology. She also minored in French and has since learned Spanish. When I watch her teach primary school kids yoga, I feel like I might burst.
