Leslie Pate - Office Administrator

Though Leslie grew up next to one of the most beautiful oceans in the world, she is absolutely terrified of fish. But don’t let that taint your opinion of her. She is a hard working, mother of four animal babies (one scaly, three furry), and she is happily married to her husband for over a year now. Leslie studied psychology in college and is always looking for ways to help the people around her. Working previously as a receptionist and coordinator for a pressure washing and lawn care company, Leslie brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the Blue Ocean Luxury Home (BOLH) team. She is devoted to working closely with people to help create an ambiance for the Lowcountry for those who are building with BOLH. She promises to do her job to the best of her ability and acquire skills in the professional field to best serve every customer who walks through the BOLH doors. When asked why she chose to work for BOLH, she wrote, “It started out as just helping out Deb and Doug, and have some additional side cash flow. But then I started to get more responsibilities and I really enjoyed working with the customer and become close to them with my work. So I decided to go full time and haven’t looked back.”

Though she’s only lived in the Beaufort County area for five years, she comes with a wealth of knowledge in the building industry, having worked with her husband, Chip, in their own custom home building company for almost thirty years. After Chip started working for Blue Ocean Luxury Homes, she was able to meet and get to know the owners, Deb and Doug Durrant. From this interaction, she discovered how down to earth they are. She respected their honesty and how transparent they are to everyone they come in contact with. Linda knew immediately she would fit right in and she has proven to be an incredible asset to the team.
