Leslie Charles is a Partner and Luxury Collection Agent at Accel. She started her real estate career in the San Jose/Saratoga part of the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 1980s. She postponed her real estate career to support her husband’s law enforcement advancements and raise her family. Leslie loves any kind of home with a great kitchen (especially vintage and modern homes). Leslie loves to cook, bake, read and watch the Hallmark Channel. She competes annually in the Grand National Wedding Cake Competition hosted by Kerry Vincent (of the Food Network).
Leslie’s Husband retired from the Boise City Police Department with two Medals of Valor and a State of Idaho Medal of Honor. Leslie has two sons who have both served in the US Armed Forces with deployments to the Middle East. One son completed 8 years in the Idaho Army National Guard and another son is a United States Naval Academy graduate and “Top Gun” pilot in the Navy. Her only daughter is completing her doctorate studies in civil engineering.
Leslie has been a resident of the Collister neighborhood for over 30 years, living off Collister and Hill Road. (Her party planning/catering/cake company is on 36th Street, next to Don’s Auto called Leslie Charles Events & Incredible Edibles Catering.) Leslie loves creating one-of-kind events with her planning and catering company and this has allowed her to provide thousands of Treasure Valley residents, companies, and nonprofits with a unique experience. This same attention to detail translates into real estate where she thrives on finding the perfect home for her buyers or setting up the ultimate listing for her sellers.
