Leslie Erickson Cantrell is one of Atlanta’s most respected real estate names.

“This is a journey that I love and enjoy sharing with my clients! It is pure joy for me to craft a plan authentic to the needs of my buyers and sellers,” says Leslie.For this accomplished Realtor, “home” is very personal and should reflect the unique path of those who live in them. ”Hence her brand, “At Home With Leslie” was born.

The Lake Country of Madison and Lake Oconee answer this need because of its natural beauty and accessibility.
“When Jim and I fell in love with the Madison community and environs, my phone blew up with my clients who want a charming weekend retreat! So, I quickly became an expert,” comments Leslie.
An avid hiker and kayaker with a love of gardening, Leslie’s latest restoration as well as labor of love is a bed and breakfast called Farmhouse Inn at Hundred Acre Farm in Madison. “I am an adventurer at heart and when I saw this place, I knew it should belong to Jim and me.
