S. Elaine's Testimonials
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 [...]

If you're looking for a true real estate professional then you have to go see Elaine. I have never dealt with a realtor that was more knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient as Elaine and her team. Elaine helped me every step of the selling way and even helped me on the buying end when things started getting sticky. It's been a year now and Elaine has stayed in touch to make sure I was happy in my new home and not just walk away after the sale...THANK YOU ELAINE!!!

Elaine and her team are the best of the best when it comes to buying and selling homes in the Westborough/Marlboro/Hudson area. My girlfriend and I recently bought a home in a very competitive market in Westborough and Elaine was masterful in guiding us through the entire process from start to finish. We are now very happily settled in our new home and are very thankful that we chose Elaine and her team to represent us and help us navigate the intense local real estate market. I personally [...]

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 and Doug are a go-to team for selling your house. They have been in the industry for many years and have a great deal of knowledge about the local area. We had not idea we would sell our home as fast as we did. Elaine and Doug took their time to ensure our home was in ready condition for sale - we had an offer in 2 days. That is exciting, yes. But, we had a very big move ahead of us (out of state) and a lot needed to [...]

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 [...]

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!

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) [...]

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, [...]
Southboro, PA (Seller) Reviewed 2/22/15
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. [...]
