Middleburg Realtor Peter Leonard-MorganI am a Realtor® with Hunt Country Sotheby’s International Realty Middleburg, Virginia, raised in London and moving to the United States in 2001.  My wife and I live in the heart of hunt country, Middleburg, where I play an active role in my community as Vice Mayor, as well as the council representative on the Sustainability and Utility committees.

​I was honored to have been the first Hunt Country Sotheby’s International Realty agent to be accredited as a SIR Global Advisor China. With Chinese buyers ever more present in US real estate, this is an important niche for the company.

As a DAAR (Dulles Area Association of Realtors) Board Member, I am responsible for keeping our office updated as to important issues within our area of specialization.

Hunt Country SIR opened its office in Middleburg, where I am based, in 2017 as the authorized Sotheby’s International Realty office for this unique and crucial location. Middleburg is the nation’s horse and fox hunting capital, home to some of the most impressive horse farms in the country. The town itself dates to the mid 18th century when it was founded as a staging post for weary travellers making their way between Winchester in the west, and the port of Alexandria on the Potomac river in the east.

​I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on my clients’ behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.

Q & A WITH MIDDLEBURG REALTOR PETER LEONARD-MORGAN

What Special Expertise Do You Offer as a Realtor?

I enjoy marketing my listing with on camera narration which seems to create additional interest in my listings. I take the same approach to a $500,000 listing as I do with a $5 million dollar listing. Here’s a sample of my videography from a recent listing in Waterford. You can find a more complete library of my property videos on my personal wesbsite: Peter’s Property Videos
