I started my real estate career with Bird Realty in July 2008 and was immediately pleased to be part of a team of professionals that offered personal, caring service to all their clients. Their team emphasis was the perfect fit for me to bring my experience to serve both buyers and sellers. I enjoy home repair and remodeling and time with family. I have a lifelong love of learning and I’m an avid reader. My wife and I have always been active in our local church and community events. We have supported and participated in fund raising for the Making Strides event in Albany aimed at eradicating breast cancer. 

My professional background in education and teaching has allowed me to establish a vast network of personal contacts. My experience and training in real estate further helped me to serve my clients (both buyers and sellers). Whether you want to list your home for sale, buy a new home or find the perfect site to build your dream home - I have the expertise to make your endeavor successful. As a Realtor I am a member of the Greater Capital Area Realtors. I am also a member of the New York State Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. I have been an active member of the real estate community since I joined the Bird team. I enjoy analyzing the market to help both buyers and sellers make informed decisions. 

Whether you are buying or selling or if you just have real estate questions, feel free to contact me. My pledge to my clients is to represent them with the utmost professionalism and personal care.

Leanne McCarty, Real Estate Agent




My name is Leanne McCarty and I have been a licensed real estate agent with Bird Realty since 2016. I live in Glenville with my husband and we have 4 adult children.

 I am so happy God led me to this career.  I truly enjoy every aspect of my job.  The main thing that brings me joy in what I do is helping people achieve their goals and dreams.  Whether I am helping a buyer or seller, I realize this is a huge financial and emotional step in their life and I take that very seriously.  I always put my clients wants and needs first and acknowledge that this is not about me, but always 100% about my clients.

I feel I have a great understanding and knowledge of this business, but when in doubt,  I have a great support system at Bird Realty  All of the agents here work well together and we are led by our wonderful broker, Donna, who has been in the real estate business for over 30 years.  I  tell my clients that I have 30 years of experience in my "back pocket" as I always run things by my broker if in doubt about anything!

I realize that choosing a real estate agent is a very personal choice so I encourage people to interview a few agents to see who fits their needs and wants best.  I would consider it an honor if you would choose me to be one of those agents to help you with your real estate needs.

Jen Van Slyck, Real Estate Agent




I grew up in the Capital District, and currently reside in Guilderland with my husband and three children.  I am a graduate of Schalmont High School  and The College of St Rose.  I have been surrounded by real estate and new construction my entire life.  My father founded Hodorowski Homes in 1972, I began working in the business during high school and still work there part time.  My husband and I have also operated our own construction business, Van Slyck Contracting, for the past 18 years. 

Most of my professional career has involved working in various aspects of the building business.  I have experience in customer service, production and design. I was interested in getting involved in real estate sales,  and started working with Bird Realty in 2019.  I have a passion for helping others, so I find that real estate is a great fit with my background.  I realize that the purchase and sale of property is one of the biggest decisions and transactions that most people make in their lifetime, so I take my role very seriously, and will make every effort to educate and assist throughout the entire process.
