Hi, My name is James Dean Leonard.
To all of my friends and family I go by "Dean".
Tucson has been my home for almost 25 years. While still working at a local copper mine, I started investing and flipping in Real Estate in 2011. From 2011 to 2017 my wife and I bought, fixed, and sold over 33 homes. In February of 2015 I obtained my Realtor license to help us
with our investments and quickly became a
full-time Realtor. I enjoy sharing my experience, expertise,
and network with homeowners and home buyers.
I am a Marine Corps veteran, and have a deep respect for our armed forces, homeland security, local police, fire fighters, first responders, and educators. It is on the shoulders of these individuals that we have built our society.
In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, fishing, hunting and sightseeing. I am also an avid NFL fan and cheer on the local college
teams as well.
My wife Pamela and I have been married since 2013 and we have a
blended family of 7 adult children and 5 grand children.
