Pleshette Business Card Pic_cropped.jpg

Pleshette Moore


Pleshette Moore has been serving the community throughout her career and civic affiliations.  She enjoys helping and working with people so real estate is a natural fit as she assists clients with the purchase and sale of their biggest and most important assets. Negotiation, mediation and investigative skills come natural to her and are required skills for a realtor. As she has supported the public as a probation officer, mediator and investigator in various state and federal court systems across the country, advocating for her real estate clients is inherent in her character and will be of the utmost priority. This sets her apart when representing her clients’ interests whether they are buying or selling their home.

 Moreover, Pleshette has a strong work ethic in every endeavor that she takes on as well as she keenly pays attention to the details. These skills are very instrumental in each real estate transaction. You will see this and much more when you work with Pleshette. Furthermore, respect is earned by the display of your accomplishments. (And she has received many throughout her career.)  Trust is earned by the display of your loyalty to others. (She has gained this from co-workers on all levels including those she served.)  Most importantly, both are attributes that Pleshette plans to earn from her clients as they will quickly see when she guides and represents them in buying, selling and investing.  Her goal is to create win-wins for all of her clients.
