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) [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

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 were not only professional in their handling of the marketing and sale of our house, but were very responsive to any issues we ran into. My wife and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to sell a property.

Elaine is the best - period! I would never use anyone else when buying or selling a home in her area! She is the most knowledgeable and professional realtor I know, and is always responsive to any questions or issue!
Cary Corkin - Buyer 2019
Elaine did a great job selling my townhouse condo. She knows the local market area and how to set a price that is fair and will get offers. She went out of her way to help when difficult issues arose during the inspection including helping me hire people to fix things and/or negotiating with buyers. Such as a rear deck that needed repair. She and her team were responsive to emails and calls all the time and were able to [...]
