Geoffrey Leigh joined the Terra Firma Global Partners Napa Offices in 2013. Geoffrey comes to Terra Firma with a long history in Academia. Having been involved in teaching and research for over 30 years, he is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a M.S and PhD in child development and family studies/sociology, as well as a published author. Geoffrey has served on, and held offices on many national and local university committees. This strong skill set relating to working with people along with his passion of real estate, has led him to making a career change that allows him to help clients realize their dreams.
Making a career transition from Academic/Life Coach/Author to real estate professional for some would seem to be an odd decision. However, Geoffrey Leigh continues to show that learning and passion are life opportunities not to pass by. We are excited to have Geoffrey join the Terra Firma family and believe his business acumen, hard work, and true desire to help others reflect the values we have built our company on, and give him the foundation for success as he moves forward with his real estate career.
“While I have been involved as a consumer several times, only more recently have I transitioned to the professional side of real estate. After living in the Midwest for over a decade, I have enjoyed the West Coast for many years while teaching and participating in research projects for a variety of mediums.
I enjoy helping people. I enjoy gathering facts and figures that will be useful to me and to clients. I bring a long history of working with clients dealing with marital and family challenges (helping them find new solutions). I think this gives me a bit of a different skill set than most real estate professionals—one which will translate well into guiding the transaction and being a trusted adviser. I have always believed that strong relationships and service are the foundation of any strong and lasting business.
Additionally, I have a strong interest in “green living” and will look to offer education and support to help my clients move in that direction. I am a firm believer in the helpful, collaborative and “relationship for life” philosophy of our company, said Leigh.”
