LeAnne Thrasher-Chang, a Managing Partner at The Agency Naples, is a bi-coastal real estate expert who serves clients in Naples, Florida, and Los Angeles, California. Her passion lies in connecting clients to their dream home, whether it be a lease on the ocean, a first-time purchase, or their forever home. Launching her real estate career in 2011, real estate has become completely interwoven into her life as she is married to Blair Chang, Founder, and Partner at The Agency and a leading agent across the industry.
At the center of LeAnne’s real estate business is the fulfilling process of working closely with people to help them find their dream home. To her, real estate has never felt like a job, rather like a calling. One of her greatest strengths is her ability to get along with all kinds of people and connect them to others or a particular property. Some of her closest friendships have grown from working with her incredible clients.
Having grown up in Naples, LeAnne lends insight that only a local can offer. She has a vast network of longtime friendships and connections in the area and knows the waterways, the canals, the streets, and the golf courses. Her father was in real estate finance, so she grew up with an insider understanding of the Naples market and has now been in homes in virtually every neighborhood.
Prior to working in real estate, LeAnne attended NYU and Pepperdine while pursuing modeling. Her successful modeling career included traveling and meeting a breadth of diverse and extraordinary people, working with some talented photographers, designers, editors, and clients. Learning to navigate this world helped LeAnne to both hone her people skills and build an expansive network of contacts.
Outside of real estate, LeAnne lives a busy life with two sons, ages eight and five, who have inherited her and her husband’s love of sports and the outdoors. You can often find the family on a golf course, tennis court, baseball diamond, soccer, or football field. Their “happy place” is on Estero Bay, fishing for snook and snapper. Outside of their active life, the family spends time with friends and enjoys their community. Additionally, LeAnne volunteers with Children’s Hospital, Giveback Homes, Much Love Animal Rescue, and Hilton Heroes.
