Geoffrey Leigh joined the Terra Firma Global Partners Napa Offices in 2013. Geoffrey comes to Terra Firma with a long history in Academia. He has an M.S. degree in Child Development and a Ph.D. in Family Studies/Sociology, having been involved in teaching, research, and family therapy for over 30 years. This work has lead to his recently published new book, as he continues to write. 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 continues to show that learning and passion are life opportunities not to be passed. His business acumen, hard work, and true desire to help others reflect the values of the Terra Firma family and have provided the foundation for success in his real estate career.
“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 to old patterns. I think this gives me an additional skill set not possessed by most real estate professionals—one which translates 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 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.
