Born and raised on the Central Coast, Leigh enjoyed an active lifestyle as an award winning swimmer as part of the Wyong Swimming Club, gold medallist with Toowoon Bay Surf Club and talented performer on both stage & screen. Some of her happiest memories include learning to ride her first bike on Wombat Street in Berkeley Vale and learning to surf off the shores of Shelly Beach & The Entrance.
With a strong family history in Real Estate on both the Central Coast & Gold Coast her passion for property, interior design & renovations started early. As the owner of Interior Design & Styling brand Babbito, Leigh was inspired to combine her creative experience with a career in Real Estate to guide others towards maximising their rental returns and achieving exceptional sales results.
Having held several positions in Marketing/Sales and Business Development in both Australia and the USA moving back to the coast to raise her family 10 years ago was one of the happiest choices Leigh has made to date. Bringing 30 years of local market knowledge to her role as Business Development Manager with Raine & Horne it is her passionate client management, integrity and professionalism that have become her trademark style.
Leigh currently resides in East Gosford with her husband and two boys who are enjoying an equally active lifestyle whilst studying locally at Central Coast Grammar School.

What a pleasure it has been dealing with Leigh from Raine & Horne. My property was listed with another agent and after 7 weeks of sitting vacant with no tenant applications I moved it over to Leigh and her team at Raine & Horne. Within 48hrs she had found me the ideal tenants for the home. The result was outstanding especially considering there was not even time to take photos, advertise the property or put up a signboard out the front. I would certainly recommend Leigh and her team to other landlords for professional service and premium management results.
Thank you so much for finding a great tenant for our investment property at the price we were after and well within the estimated timeframe. We really appreciate your prompt updates and always following through with all changes and actions required. You are amazing.
“The application process with Raine & Horne was great. All of the staff were very helpful and very quick to get back to you with an answer and any questions you had. It was a beautiful surprise walking into the house and seeing a beautiful note and box of chocolates on the table. I thank them for all they have done and can't wait to rent with them for a long time to come.”
We found our experience with Leigh to be a fantastic one. Having never leased our property before, Leigh was able to provide us with all the guidance and expertise to make sure our property was advertised at a competitive rate, yet still getting the weekly rent we were hoping for. She really cared about making sure we got the best tenants, and ensured we were kept informed during all stages of the application process. Leigh was a pleasure to work with, professional and friendly at all times. Would not hesitate to recommend her attention to detail and professionalism.
“My family and I would like to thank Leigh for the wonderful service we have experienced. Our needs in finding just the right home were precise and Leigh went above and beyond helping us to find just the right one. Leigh's highly professional but also lovely personal approach helped make the whole process enjoyable, thank you!!”
Good Evening Leigh, Just wanted to thank you for all you have done for us. As first time investors we had many questions and nothing was too much trouble for you. You always made the time to meet with us, whether it was at the property or your office, and you were always prompt with any text messages/phone calls or emails. Your knowledge and assistance has been most appreciated and resulted in us leasing the property to our ideal tenants.
The process of leasing my first home couldn't have been easier. There was an impressive 72 hour turn around between the first inspection and the tenants signing the lease! Not only that, Leigh and the team at Raine and Horne helped me to find quality tenants which was so important to me so that the property is well looked after and maintained. A dream result! I am really so grateful for your help, it was an excellent outcome!
Not living in the same city as my investment property, it’s very important to know that you are being well looked after and can trust your agent. Feeling at ease knowing they are treating your property as if it’s their own. Along with great communication skills and positive attitude, Leigh and her team are the perfect Real estate agent for me.
Anyone thinking of doing business with Raine & Horne should only do so if Leigh Taylor is looking after them . For an investor like myself who is out of town it would have been a very stressful investment from day one, yet with Leigh there I'm already making plans to buy another. Nothing is a problem. Attitude is fantastic!! Thank you & Merry Christmas
Leigh and I decided to rent out our property at Toowoon Bay and right from the start of choosing Raine & Horne at Toowoon Bay as our agents to manage the property Leigh Taylor could not have been more helpful or professional in her dealings with us. She was friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. In the screening of prospective tenants - she took everything into consideration to ensure we got the type of tenant that would look after our property and came up with a lovely family who are doing just that and have taken a long term lease. Thank you Leigh for everything you did to make this happen in such a smooth and hassle free professional manner.
Leigh is an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout every process. Right from the start, her warm, caring, positive and professional nature won us over. We could tell that not only would she look after our needs but our tenant's also, which was really refreshing. Her beautifully written "story" about our home ensured she'd attract the right tenant to look after it. Leigh genuinely loves what she does and we trust her completely. We won't hesitate to engage her for our next property. Thank you, Leigh!
Leigh and her team worked hard to find a suitable tenant for my property. I was kept up to date during the entire leasing process. Communication by phone and email was prompt and professional. She was knowledgeable and had an in depth understanding of the rental market in the area. I would have no hesitation in recommending Leigh to manage the properties of my friends or family
Thank you Leigh for the tremendous effort you have put into finding the best tenant for my property. As a first time investor and not living in the same city as my new property, your help with applications and organising services along with your frequent updates and correspondence have been so reassuring. It is fantastic knowing you and your team work so hard and in the best interests of both landlord and tenant. I highly recommend you to everyone; your demeanour and approachable manner make you such a pleasure to work with!
