"We bought in 2006 at the absolute peak, right before the housing crisis, 10 years later we were still under water. After 12 years, we were considering selling but after consulting realtors, we decided against it. Then we met Elena who initially told us the same details as the others, but was the first to work with us and the first to have a positive view that we can get as much for our place as possible, based on her strategy and market expertise. Elena had the in-depth knowledge about fees and price points which put us in an ideal spot, she even cautioned us AGAINST lowering our price. The strategy worked and we were relieved to get the sale for the amount that fit our budget. Working with Elena was a true pleasure-- we NEVER felt neglected and she was more responsive than any realtor we've ever worked with. She also knew how to effectively utilize open houses, and other marketing strategies, and how to effectively utilize staging materials and strategic repairs that wouldn't break the bank. All led to a successful sale. Highly recommend."
"Thank you so much Elena! It has been such a pleasure and you made this whole experience simple and easy for us. We really appreciate it a lot. We do look forward to working with you again in the future!
Elena was super helpful throughout the whole process. She really made it easy for us by explaining everything and checking in on us to make sure everything is good and that we were comfortable. The whole process was so timely and efficient. Elena was professional and is very skilled in the real estate business."
"Elena is a top agent. She found me a renter in less than a month. She also helped me sell the property to the renters! Elena is an awesome agent who is diligent and determined like no one else I've worked with. I highly recommend Elena."

A master with the contract negotiations, Elena came up with a deal that was good for us and made the buyer happy as well. Throughout this home selling process. She managed to sell our condo for an excellent price, especially in the current market situation.

Elena was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our condo to attract buyers quickly, and her advice worked like a charm.

“I have hired Elena’srealestate services on three occasions My husband and I are so impressed with Elena’ s professionalism, experience and knowledge! She has never disappointed us. She guided us step by step on the sale of our condo. And it happened so quickly; in only two weeks!
In the past, Elena had found excellent tenants for a few of our properties with equal speed. On our first meeting, she gave us all the information we needed including her analysis of comparable properties and her assessment of the market. But we also appreciated that Elena heard our opinions and our points of view. She also made herself available to us any time of the day, any day of the week and communicated with us in a prompt manner. Her major asset is her negotiations skills, which are superb. And she knew how to troubleshoot any issue that came along. She always looked out for our interests and respected our requests. I highly recommend Elena for all types of Real Estate transactions. She will never disappoint you and she will exceed your expectations! Thank you, Elena!"
"Elena worked so hard work to sell my condo! It is a weight lifted and she made the process easy, understandable, and really fought for me throughout the negotiations! I appreciate Elena's excellent customer service and negotiation skills. Elena truly made herself accessible for questions at any hour of the day and I feel I received an education working with her! Thank you to Elena for helping me to complete the renovation project with confidence and for ensuring I received the sale price reflective of that work! Elena is amazing!"
"Elena is an impressive professional. Her get-things-done attitude and and ability to back it up with action produced a quick sale above our asking price. From day 1, Elena used data to provide fact-based advice that gave me confidence in our marketing plan, including but not limited to our asking price and the apartment fixes/improvements essential to the property generating timely offers. She always operated with a sense of urgency, which furthered my confidence that she was going to do everything in her power to make the sale. For example, in order to ready the apartment for pictures and an open house, Elena not only provided me advice regarding reliable handymen and cleaners that I should consider hiring, but she also helped me ensure that they delivered in a timely manner. In summary, Elena exceeded my expectations at all turns and would be my first choice should I need a sales associate in the future!"
Thank you so much for helping me with the sale of my condo! Being a former agent myself, I did my research before I reached out to you. After my tenant of 9 years moved out, I decided it was time to sell due to the increasing condo fee and the anticipated rate hike (I have an arm loan). You helped me with the walk-through of my old tenant since I was away on spring break with my kids. You assisted with contacting and scheduling contractors to get the unit ready for sale, by the time I came back, it was a completely new unit! With your guidance, we staged our unit. Most importantly, your knowledge and insights helped me decide on a magical number to sell the unit which I am happy with and which was very attractive to prospective buyers. I still can't believe the unit went under contract at asking price in less than one day! From contract ratification to the settlement, we had some hiccups; for example the buyer's loan and appraisal and the walkthrough items. But your tough negotiating and quick problem-solving skills saved us at every turn.
I feel really blessed to have found you and would like to express my sincere gratitude for all you have done! Thank you so very much!!!
