Leesa Shilling was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. She attended Endeavor Sports School and the University of New England and then became a para-legal with a prominent law firm in Australia for 17 years. While traveling, she met her husband in Bali Indonesia who has lived in Anna Maria Island since age 12. They both moved back to Bradenton, Florida permanently in 2007. At that time, they opened an import business on the island specializing in imported clothing, jewelry, and furniture.
Leesa started with Duncan Real Estate in February 2013 as a Vacation Rental Booking Agent. She enjoys the island atmosphere, the people she works with, and seeing the guests be happy visiting the island. Leesa has traveled the world extensively and when she is not working she also enjoys paddle boarding and running.
