S. Elaine's Testimonials
Elaine and Doug are a great team. Elaine showed me condos available in the desired area and kept in touch with me. She went the extra mile to do a showing and the inspection by iPhone/iPad when I was not able to actually be in town. She knows professionals in the area and has contacts that help smooth the process. She is kind and thoughtful along with being professional and knowledgeable. She is the best!

Selling a house can be a very personal thing, so it was important to have a personal connection to both Elaine McDonald and to Douglas Palino, her sales manager. We got along well and felt we had a strong partner in this "moving adventure"! Elaine let us set the pace and frequency of our new home search; this was mostly good news, because we were capable of doing the work and assessing good possible fits for us. When we wanted or needed more help, Elaine was [...]

We recently sold our home with Elaine and her team as our realtor. She is very professional, personable, and knowledgeable about the entire buying/selling process. She provided us with contractor names who completed work for us in a timely manner allowing the house to sell quickly. As we had moved out of state during the selling process, her assistance was invaluable to us! She kept us informed, and calm, during the entire process. She has years of experience in real estate and it shows! We [...]
Ann Marie Fantasia - Seller/Buyer 2017
Elaine made our dreams come true. She was referred to me by a co-worker and I was hesitant to call because we already had a realtor working with us. It was our first home buying experience and I didn't know exactly what to expect from our realtor. We met her out of respect for my co-worker and boy was it a good move. When we did walk-throughs of the prospective houses she walked around with us and pointed out all the issues and features. Our other realtor sat on his phone in [...]

Elaine is THE BEST! If I can elaborate, she truly cares about her clients, has the experience and knowledge to lend wise advice, and is completely invested in exceeding expectations. Elaine looks after anybody seeking to purchase or sell with her, lending accurate insight to market value and property maintenance costs. My wife and I were blown away by her attention to detail when assessing our home’s value, and making sure we stick to our guns through the home buying process, avoiding [...]
Jerek Walker - Buyer 2018
To say that Elaine was amazing is truly an understatement. She listened to our needs, advised us with her invaluable knowledge, and always had our best interest in mind. She made the purchase of our first home one that we will never forget. I do not believe that we would have been so well taken care of had it not been for her. Truly the best!

Elaine McDonald is an amazing Real Estate Agent. She is very professional and is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market. Her husband, Doug, is also great with pictures, paperwork, and getting everything in order. He makes you laugh even though you're stressed out beyond belief! This team sold our house in 9 days!!! The process of selling a house is so much easier when you have Elaine McDonald on your side!! I highly recommend Elaine McDonald!!

I have known Elaine for more than 30 years. She is a consummate real estate professional, knowledgeable and client focused. Elaine sold two houses for me and helped us find our present home. Personally, I would not think of using anyone else if I need the services of a realtor.

We've used Elaine McDonald many times over the years to both buy & sell our homes in the area. She's extremely knowledgeable about the area and the entire buying/selling processes. Elaine tells it like it is (without being harsh) and there is no drama or overinflation of an issue when dealing with her. I can't possibly overstate her competence and experience. She's has a great presence on the internet as well and did a great job of getting our listing out [...]

We bought our house with Elaine and sold it with Elaine 7 years later. Elaine is knowledgeable, professional, responsive and always acted 100% with our interests in mind. She was direct and honest with us as we prepared to put our house on the market, and worked with us for months before we put out house on the market so it was "Buyer Ready" by the time the sign went up. We got our first offer within a few days (a low-ball offer that Elaine told us to reject out of hand) [...]
