Two Palm Beach Realtors Combine Forces to Create Real Estate Records

By Jayne Chase | March 18, 2020 | Home & Real Estate


In the endless competition of Palm Beach real estate, lesson number one is you are always at work… even if you’re just doing your parents a favor. That “ambition never sleeps” attitude is what gave birth to Douglas Elliman Palm Beach’s newest real estate partners, Chris Leavitt and Ashley McIntosh.

The two found a mutual respect for each other’s salesmanship when Leavitt brought in the buyers for McIntosh’s parents’ home on Via Bethesda two years ago. When negotiations suddenly came to a 25th-hour standstill, Leavitt ran over to meet McIntosh’s parents in person and to help get the deal across the goal line. On the flip side, Leavitt admired McIntosh’s calm demeanor during the process, which, considering the family implications of the deal, was noticeable.

The pair says that 2019 was their best year yet. The two pride themselves on using creative marketing powers to help give listings that have lingered on the market fresh momentum and create record-breaking sales. With the Palm Beach real estate market on fire, Leavitt and McIntosh are confident they can double their sales from last year and continue to prove their bona fide real estate expertise on Palm Beach Island. 340 Royal Poinciana Way
