Leslie Wish

About our Team


Meet Leslie Wish

I began originating mortgage loans in 1987 and still (to this day) love working with clients and figuring out which loan strategies best fit their short and long term goals.  The majority of my clientele is referred to me through experienced real estate agents, divorce attorneys, financial advisors and happy current and past clients. 

I have consistently been recognized as one of the Top 100 Mort­gage Loan Orig­i­na­tors in America* and working at McLean Mortgage gives me the flexibility to help my clients to structure competitive offers as well as close their transactions quickly when required.  My team and I never feel our job is finished until our clients become raving fans – proactive communication and superior customer service are the core values of my team.  I graduated from the University of Florida (Gainesville) where I was a college gymnast.  I have two grown children who have left the nest and my husband and I live in Arlington, VA.  In my spare time I enjoy gardening, reading, exercising and learning about Virginia history.

I am the Loan Manager for The Leslie Wish Team. I have been in the mortgage industry for almost 10 years, and 5 of those years have been at McLean Mortgage. My main focus is centered around keeping in constant contact with every client and walking them through each step of the buying or refinance experience. The best part of my job is seeing our clients get into the home of their dreams. In my time outside of McLean Mortgage, I enjoy watching football, spending time with my 4 children and spoiling my grandchild!

After a ratified sales contract is received and you and Leslie determine your mortgage strategy, I will be actively involved in keeping all parties informed of the loan progress throughout the transaction and up to the closing.  I have many years of experience in managing loans through each step of the process and I focus my time communicating directly with you to ensure a smooth and on-time closing.  I will be sure to keep you updated with each step along the way and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions that you would like answered. 

Leslie Wish and her team made a stressful process so easy. She and her team were always available and willing to walk us through every step of the process. Super professional and knowledgable.
