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