As first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place, we met with a couple of realtors before Elena, but we knew instantly that she was the one for us. She is honest and hands-on and has been there every step of the way. Elena has always answered every call, text or email no matter what time of day or night it was. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that Elena was just trying to sell me a house, but that she was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family.
As Buyer agent, Elena quickly mobilized her resources and walked us through every step of the negotiations. Most notably, after several conversations with the lender over a weekend, we secured the coveted loan pre-approval through the expedited process and were able to come in with a strong offer to ultimately secure our dream home.
As Seller agent, Elena brought in a fabulous photographer to showcase our home online, which created much more foot traffic and brought in serious buyers. She also brought in a designer to help stage our home, which helped make it more appealing to a larger group of potential buyers. Her marketing is top notch and can’t be beat! Although we received multiple offers, we ended up working with nervous first time buyers. Elena was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely manner. She was always available to answer our questions (and the buyers!). Ultimately, the condo sold for asking price within 7 days of being listed.
I now consider Elena a friend and would highly recommend her to anyone that is searching for a new home.
