S. Elaine's Testimonials
S. Elaine McDonald was so helpful as a first-time home buyer. She was patient and her expertise about the area was truly a game-changer in finding our perfect home.
Elaine and her team helped us to the successful purchase of our dream house - a lake house! We are very grateful to team up with her and the excellent support team. She is very professional, hard working and patient to guide us through this process. And we won at the end!
My fiancé and I could not be happier with our experience with Elaine. My fiancé and I had been looking for a home for months with another agent, before we'd met Elaine, and although he was nice person, he didn't seem to meet our needs. Often times he was unresponsive or unable to meet because of vacation or dinner plans. I don't expect people to be at my beck and call but we had lost opportunities to put down offers on multiple homes we were avidly interested in. When viewing homes, [...]
Working with S. Elaine McDonald was a very rewarding experience. She took care of every little detail and worked hard to keep our stress levels down. She assured us on several occasions that it was okay to be nervous about the move, she understands that moving is a very emotional experience especially for people our age. She staged our house beautifully. There’s no doubt in our minds that our house would not have sold as fast as it did without her. We will be singing her praises to all our [...]
Elaine McDonald was very knowledgeable and thorough in her analysis. She really knew the area and was on top of everything!! Best realtor experience in selling a house. Great job all around. Elaine and Doug did an amazing job and when it came to inspections, appraisal and showings - they took care of everything as I was out of town. [...]
Elaine, Doug and their team are excellent to work with. They are professional, knowledgeable but also warm and friendly. Highly recommend!
Elaine helped us buy our home 25 years ago, and we always planned on using her when it was time to sell. More than just an agent for us, Elaine and Doug became our friends. The strength of her Team, Elaine's knowledge of the industry and her guidance helping us make decisions of what was required to sell our home. It was the first time we had sold a home in over 35 years, Elaine and Team guided us through the process and gave us all the inputs and recommendations we needed to make it a [...]
Elaine has your best interests at heart. It does not matter if you are a buyer or seller. I have much respect for her in her profession and would refer her to anyone.
We are delighted we chose The S. Elaine McDonald Team to sell our home. Elaine's advice, knowledge, and negotiating skills are outstanding. She has an impeccable reputation. When we met other brokers and attended open houses, we felt they were way too talkative and gave away their seller's personal information that should have been kept private (like why they were selling, sellers were looking for a quick sale, or negative comments about the house, etc.). Elaine is professional and [...]
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 well. In [...]
