S. Elaine's Testimonials
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) [...]

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 [...]

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!

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 [...]

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!!!

I have known Elaine McDonald as a broker for many years. There is no one to match her level of professionalism, integrity, knowledge, and personal attention/care for her clients in her approach in real estate. Elaine's professional approach to buying/selling real estate is unmatched in New England and in the region. I would not consider any other agent/broker in the sale or purchase of any [...]

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. [...]

Elaine and Doug were great to work with. We had certain expectations from a real estate agent and Elaine exceeded them all. She not only sold our home in less than a month, she helped us find a new place in a weekend. She is always available to solve any problem that may come up during the process. We loved her so much we recommended her to our son, who also just purchased his first town house [...]

The Perfect Choice Prior to making the decision to sell our home with the intent to downsize we had to weigh our Realtor options. Go with "someone you know" – In our case there were part timers while others were either new to the field or quite simply didn't sell many houses. Big downside there is they'll likely be mad because you didn't choose them. The other option is go with a proven well regarded veteran. We chose the latter and went with Elaine based on very [...]

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 [...]
