Leslie Kilpatrick

Manager

Willis Allen Real Estate

1131 Wall St.
La JollaCA92037

Leslie Kilpatrick’s career seems to have fallen into place as if it were part of a master plan.
She entered the real estate industry in her early 20s, now manages two offices for Willis Allen Real Estate and is board president of the Greater San Diego Association of Realtors. But her path wasn’t planned; it was the result of accidental meetings and one thing leading to another.
She answered an ad for a secretary at a remodeling company when she was in school, and that led to a job at a fund control. She met contractors who offered her jobs and helped her create her career path.
