Realtor & Partner at Calusa Bay Properties
CONTACT Leslie Sherman
Meet Maggie, a precious Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is always ready to deliver love to everyone she meets! Maggie is undoubtedly the star of Calusa Bay, which is why we love to feature her with the majority of our new developments. Maggie is primarily loved by her owner Leslie Sherman and lives full time in Pelican Bay. A native of Pennsylvania, Leslie started her career in advertising, a discipline that comes in handy promoting the multi-million-dollar homes that she and partner Taber Tagliasacchi represent up and down Florida’s Gold Coast. With a degree in business, a background in both advertising and capital equipment sales, and a keen eye for residential design, Leslie has compiled the perfect blend of education and experience to support her successful career in residential real estate sales and development.
Add to that 10+ years working in the multi-million-dollar capital equipment sales industry combined with 13 years in luxury residential real estate sales and the result is a skilled negotiator, experienced marketer, and highly qualified salesperson, capabilities that Leslie’s customers appreciate in today’s competitive real estate market. One look at the record-breaking sale prices that she and partner Taber Tagliasacchi have achieved within Pelican Bay over the last four years clearly illustrates the expertise this remarkable team brings to every real estate transaction that they represent.
In addition to her strong background in real estate sales, in the last ten years, Leslie’s business savvy, keen eye for design, and strong work ethic have resulted in the formation of Calusa Bay Development, currently the preeminent residential new construction developer within Pelican Bay. With more than a dozen multi-million-dollar homes to its credit, Calusa Bay Development has transformed the luxury residential new construction landscape within Pelican Bay. In high demand, you’ll find her homes featured on the pages of Florida Design, Home and Design, and Florida Weekly.
This success drove the formation of Leslie’s own full-service interior design business, Calusa Bay Design, which has turned out to be a helpful complement to the brokerage sales team’s resources. Calusa Bay Properties and Design have the ability to work collaboratively to provide a scope of service to customers encompassing everything from staging suggestions to interior design updates to complete renovation recommendations.
Together Leslie and Taber have achieved record-breaking sales for the last four consecutive years in Pelican Bay, each year surpassing the previous year’s record. An avid animal lover, currently Leslie divides her time between the real estate brokerage company, interior design company and development company.
