S. Elaine's Testimonials
Elaine helped sell my childhood home and when my husband and I started to look for our first house we began looking in a different area we were more knowledgeable about. But when we decided to change the area we were looking we knew we needed someone who knew the area so my mother recommended Elaine. Not only did she provide us with the knowledge we were looking for she found us a house we love that we would never have even looked at if it wasn't for her. She helped us with the whole [...]

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 [...]

I have purchased many homes, in several states, including 4 in 3 states in the past 10 years, so I have a lot of experience working with realtors from both sides of the buying and selling equation. I can say, without hesitation, that I have never had a realtor better advocate for me as a seller. Elaine's evident experience and competence are an enormous asset to a client. Her knowledge of the area, its home values, and its services makes the transition so much easier as [...]

There is no better real estate professional agent out there! Elaine expertly guided us through a difficult real estate transaction. She is incredibly knowledgable about location, market conditions and even home structural issues. Even after we closed, Elaine was there to answer questions and guide us through other challenges. She adds tremendous value and I would enlist her services again with no hesitation.
Suzanne Hermalyn - Buyer 2019
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!

It was a wonderful experience to work with Elaine in selling property on two separate occasions. Elaine is professional, honest, expedient, and knows her market very well. Elaine made both very challenging events move smoothly and stayed true to her time line. Her advise was top notch through out the process!! I could not have asked for a better realtor to work with and would absolutely work with her again!!!! I recommend Elaine without any reservation and with the utmost of [...]

We bought our house with Elaine, and sold it with Elaine 7 years later. In both cases, Elaine was attentive, professional, creative and operated 100% with our interests in mind. When selling our house, Elaine was direct, honest and creative in helping us prepare our home for sale, working with us for months before we put our house on the market so everything was "Buyer Ready" by the time we put the sign in our front yard. We got our first offer (a low ball) within days, [...]

Elaine and Doug are an amazing team who know how to help people achieve their goals when selling and buying a home. Having sold and purchased THREE times we have seen our fair share of issues and hardships. Elaine and Doug were there to guide us through the process, coordinate with the other professionals involved and make our sales/purchases go smoothly. Our most recent move included delivering a child AND closing on a new home in the SAME WEEK!! This could have created an [...]

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 [...]

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.
