Elaine's Clients Say...
"Elaine had a strategy for selling our house that included getting all our inspections done early, preparing the property for maximum appeal, and choosing the right time to go on the market. We sold in 6 days for $40,000 over the asking price. We think she's the best Realtor around and so do our friends and neighbors."
- Jerry and Anita Atnip

"We worked with Elaine for quite a while before putting our house on the market. She advised us on which home improvement projects to do, and we used several vendors she recommended. It helped us sell in 8 days for $16,000 over the listing price. We would recommend Elaine highly to anyone."
- Tom and Karen Poos

"Elaine encouraged us to buy our first house, and I was one of her recommended vendors for years. Her clients that I worked with had only good things to say about her. So do we."
- Greg and Doreen Pontzious

"I worked with Elaine to sell a house in Fremont while living in Virginia. I never had to come to California and we got the job done with no hassle and minimum effort on my part. She did a great job."
- Jim Ewanisik

"We were immediately impressed by Elaine's professionalism and knowledge. She and her staff took excellent care of us and our transaction went beautifully. So we worked with her on selling a second home and it went just as well!"
- Bill and Diane Strong

"I've worked with Elaine on selling two older properties and my own home - and she referred me to an excellent Coldwell Banker Realtor in San Luis Obispo to help me buy a home there. She's great; I'd recommend her to my friends anytime."
- Marion Hatland
