After 20 years as a court reporter, Lesley Citarella launched her career in Real Estate with Seven Gables in 2000. She has always had a passion for homes, design and interacting with people, so real estate was the perfect segue into a new career. During her eight years with Seven Gables, she became proficient working with buyers and sellers in the higher end market.
Lesley takes pride in keeping up-to-date and on top of the ever- changing real estate market. After 8 years with Seven Gables, Lesley went to work for ZipRealty. Due to her innate understanding of the intersection of technology and real estate she was acquired by First Team Real Estate to help build their E Commerce Division. Lesley’s goal has been to obtain the knowledge and tools to provide her clients with the service they want and need. With her clients first in mind, she has become an expert in using technology to sell homes.
When returning to Seven Gables this year, Lesley has joined the O’Dell Group and ensures full-time availability to client’s questions during the transaction process, just a call away. Lesley tackles issues head-on and is widely detail oriented. She never lets necessary details slip through the cracks, because she is experienced in understanding client's questions and client's unique needs.
Her direct approach, negotiation skills and integrity, as well as her expertise with both buyers and sellers empowers her to provide the knowledge and support needed to her clients throughout each transaction.
Furthermore, Lesley is a team player. She enjoys the structure and accountability of being part of a team. With The O’Dell Group, she is able to pursue excellent client service with access to award-winning marketing resources, transaction coordinators, and support staff. She is also able to stay true to her belief of leveraging technology for the benefit of her clients with a myriad of apps, platforms, and services to make finding that perfect home a breeze.
When she isn’t working, Lesley and her high school sweetheart Jim can be found traveling to the Central Coast in their RV. The mother of three grown children also enjoys yoga, hiking, travel, and is a food and wine enthusiast.
