S. Elaine's Testimonials
Elaine and Doug were always prompt with answering questions. Doug was a great help with all the side chores that go with selling, especially since I was between Massachusetts and Rhode Island much of the time. Clearly, Elaine and her team are proficient at guiding homeowners through the multiple challenges of obtaining a successful sale.
Diane Hanson - Seller 2019
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 [...]

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
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!

There is no better real estate professional agent out there! Elaine expertly guided us through a difficult real estate transaction. She is incredibly knowledgable about location, market conditions and even home structural issues. Even after we closed, Elaine was there to answer questions and guide us through other challenges. She adds tremendous value and I would enlist her services again with no hesitation.
Suzanne Hermalyn - Buyer 2019
Elaine helped sell my childhood home and when my husband and I started to look for our first house we began looking in a different area we were more knowledgeable about. But when we decided to change the area we were looking we knew we needed someone who knew the area so my mother recommended Elaine. Not only did she provide us with the knowledge we were looking for she found us a house we love that we would never have even looked at if it wasn't for her. She helped us with the whole [...]
Kari Heggie - Seller/Buyer 2019
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 [...]

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.
Jeff and Marilyn Chaffee - Seller 2019
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 [...]
