Hi everyone! My name is Eric Leadbetter. Currently I am the co-owner of the Iron Valley Real Estate office in Bethlehem. I was licensed in 2014 and quickly began The Eric Leadbetter Team. My team has grown from just a small 2-man team with my brother to 13 members. We pride ourselves on our ethics, commitment to our clients and a strong team bond. I got into real estate after years of working for underpay and companies that undervalued their team members. I vowed to always treat others with respect and if I ever had my own team, I would be the team leader I always wanted. I have served on GLVR’s Grievance Committee for the last two years and am an advocate for agent rights. Education is huge for me and I believe that we can always learn more and do better. During the pandemic I created a group called “Friends of Realtors” and raised over $1,000.00 from a GoFundMe page to help, in our small way, our local agents who were struggling financially with both gas and grocery gift cards since we didn’t know early on which way the pandemic would take us. My small but mighty family is made up of my partner Jason, also a REALTOR®, and our two dogs, Thelma and Zimmerman. Being able to contribute to GLVR’s Board of Directors is an honor and I promise to uphold my duties not only as an advocate but as a friend.
