Marinus Leach


I’m unbelievably proud to call the City of Oaks home, and to be a Raleigh real estate expert representing buyers and sellers alike as they tackle this booming Triangle market. And considering I was born in Oosterhout, Netherlands – I’d argue no one knows more about relocating to Raleigh than Marinus Leach!

I pride myself on my nimble approach, positive attitude and practical advice. I’m fueled by the fast-paced nature of the real estate market and focused on being an active advocate for my clients throughout any transaction. Whether I’m preparing a home to sell, or negotiating a contract to close, I ensure that my clients are informed and involved, from wherever they are in the world. You’ll typically find me working in North Raleigh, Wake Forest, or Cary; however, I’m always happy to hit the road to help out across the Triangle.

I decided to #ChooseChappell because of their connection to upcoming new construction, and the unique architectural aesthetic of many homes they are helping bring to market. (In fact, stay tuned because I’ve got an inside scoop on a pretty impressive community coming Downtown before the end of the year…)

When I’m not managing agreements or advocating for clients, I’m focused on family time. From traveling down the street or across the globe, we always know how to find fun! My husband and I enjoy exploring the Triangle with our son & daughter, breaking a sweat at the gym, or sipping on whiskey flights across our city.

"Marinus Made My Home Selling Process Stress and Worry Free."

Marinus is the absolute best, and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. He was able to step in and get my home, not only listed - but sold and closed within two weeks. He is very knowledgeable and was able to help me understand all of the contract terms and was able to explain what and why I was signing. Marinus made my home selling process stress and worry free, which is exactly what I was looking for. I cannot say enough good things about him and his team.

"I Would 100% Recommend Working With Marinus."

Marinus was so great to work with. He helped me find a new home and also sold my current home. He accommodated everything I asked for which was so nice to have someone who supported my needs. I believe he goes beyond what he should have to do to help and support what you need as a seller and buyer. I would 100% recommend working with Marinus.

"He Was Always Available Anytime We Had Questions Even With the Two Hour Time Difference."

"Marinus was the absolute best! Buying a home while being out of state is stressful and Marinus went above and beyond to find our next home. He was always available anytime we had a question even with the 2 hour time difference. Even after the sale while we are doing renovations he stopped by the house periodically to check the progress for us. Thank you Marinus for being the best realtor we have ever used."
