Leslie Wessel is a hardworking mother/bonus mother of four, real estate sales team leader, community advocate and entrepreneur! She was raised in Abilene, Kansas where she attended Chapman High School and spent her free time helping with the family farming business, before later moving to Wichita to attend Wichita State University as she awarded the prestigious Fran Jabara Scholarship in Entrepreneurship. Which gave her the tools she needed to complete her undergraduate degree in Entrepreneurship with a focus in Real Estate. She received the designation of Summa Cum Laude from the W. Frank Barton School of Business. Leslie decided early in college that real estate was right for her. She began her real estate career at Ritchie Development Corporation in 2004 where she began helping people build their dream homes as a New Home Sales Consultant Assistant. There, she served in development Chestnut Ridge, Rocky Creek, and Pine Meadow. Leslie joined The Carnahan Group at Weigand in 2006, adding to her skills and knowledge as a Contract Compliance and Closing Coordinator. She worked to ensure that the closing process went smoothly for all of their buyers and sellers from contract to the closing table. In 2008, she became a full-time salesperson with the team and after serving over nine years as an agent with that group, Leslie decided to share her abundant residential real estate experience and knowledge to train other agents. Thus, her real estate sales team Wessel Team Home Sales was born. Together, she and her team want to make their client's lives easier through what can be a difficult process, while providing unbeatable customer service. Leslie and all of the awesome team at Wessel Team Home Sales decided to make the jump to Coldwell Banker Plaza Real Estate in 2021! Eric made the jump to join Leslie in real estate in February 2023 to use his vast home remodeling, mechanic and roofing experience to add to the team as their “Inspection Specialist”.
Leslie and Eric live and bounce between their kids’ schools with their four awesome kids (ages 15, 13, 11 and 8) on acreage with an adorable Schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle) named Caesar Augustus (a lot to live up to for a 9lb dog), 3 Yorkies (Tessa, Remington and Hosmer) and their outdoor cats, Oscar and Chewbacca. And if Leslie’s lucky, she’ll talk the crew into chickens (again) and mini Highland cows anytime now.
