Leslie Cardone is a licensed real estate sales person and joined Shares of New York in February 2018 as a Sales and Marketing Associate.
In this capacity, Leslie supports the on-site sales efforts at Le Havre on the Water, as well as, farm marketing to the immediate neighboring cooperatives and single-family communities.
After graduating from Franklin and Marshall College in 2012 with a B.A. in Anthropology and Chinese Language, Leslie moved to China to continue her language studies. During her 5 years abroad, Leslie completed the Summer Language Intensive Program at Beijing Foreign Studies University (BJFSU) with the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) in 2012 and completed the Long-term Chinese Language Training at Nanjing University (NJU) in 2013.
Since 2013, Leslie has been the English counterpart voice for the Nanjing Metro subway line announcements. She has also appeared on several short informational skits with the Jiangsu Broadcasting Corporation (JSBC) television network between 2013 and 2014.
Leslie’s pursuit of lifelong learning and spirit for adventure led her to real estate in Shanghai, where she helped North American, European, and Australian families and young professionals secure rental apartments and transition to life overseas. During this time, Leslie also consulted with various Chinese property management companies on renovation projects to help better suit the needs of expatriate renters in the city.
Leslie moved back to her native Long Island community in late 2017. When she is not thinking about real estate, Leslie spends her time rock climbing and playing violin, ukulele, and piano. Leslie speaks both English and Mandarin Chinese fluently.
