Leslie’s Bio

Leslie Thorup Century21 realtor

A Brief Background on Leslie

Leslie and her husband John have been successfully selling homes in the Salt Lake Valley and surrounding cities since 1977. In 1985 when John became critically ill and nearly died during a 55 day hospital stay, Leslie’s positive attitude and commitment to succeed took over. It wasn’t long after Leslie had to completely take over their real estate business, that her natural skills and talents (and a lot of education and hard work) turned Leslie into one of the top Realtors in Utah. In fact, John states that if he had known how great a real estate salesperson Leslie would become, he would have become sick much sooner.

“You Deserve the Best”
is Leslie’s motto. She won’t disappoint you!

Recently, Leslie and John were awarded “The #1 Sales Team” out of nearly 800 agents in 2011 and 2012. She is also one of only a very few agents who has earned the prestigious “Salesperson of the Year” award, which is only given to one Realtor each year out of over 5,000 agents in the Salt Lake Board of Realtors. This award focuses on exceptional real estate sales production and an extraordinary business reputation.

Leslie takes her commitment to her sellers and buyers very seriously. You won’t find her sitting around waiting for her phone to ring. She spends countless hours each week actively marketing and “prospecting”, looking for qualified buyers and sellers for her clients. Furthermore when you work with Leslie, you not only receive the very best in personal attention, you also receive superior service from her own exclusive and private team of real estate professionals. In addition to being very hard working and extremely experienced, Leslie is also known as exceptionally honest and trustworthy. Leslie lives up to her promises. “Expect the Best” is Leslie’s motto. You won’t be disappointed by Leslie!

Leslie is married to John Thorup, who has an MBA and also a degree in Finance. John serves as Leslie’s marketing and office manager. Together they have four married children and eight grandchildren. Leslie loves traveling, jeeping, cooking, spending time with her family, and giving church service including recently learning to play a pipe organ. Also, about 8 years ago she started scuba diving with John and has well over 150 ocean dives to date. But mostly she eats, breaths and thinks “Real Estate”.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that all real estate agents are the same. They are NOT. The facts show that less than 20% of all agents sell more than 80% of all real estate. Leslie is in the top 1% of all agents. Please allow Leslie to interview with you for the job of getting your home SOLD and let her experience, training, skills and talents work for you!
