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. When viewing homes, he left us alone with our thoughts, and had little to say about the home itself. I thought that perhaps he was respecting our space. Elaine was recommended to us by a mutual friend... She was a rock star! When she took us to see these homes, she'd walk us throughout the entire house, inside and out, and would point out every detail that may be a problem, or might need to be replaced and when, possible advantages or disadvantages if we decided to sell in a few years, what could be changed without breaking the bank. She was very responsive and made us feel very at ease when we weren't sure what to do with our nerves. We were impressed by her knowledge and wisdom. There was an opportunity to buy a more expensive home that we fell in love with, but I knew she was looking in our best interests when she explained to us why it would be a bad investment. We finally settled on a home in Sterling that needed a little fixing up. She negotiated hard for us and we were more than satisfied. We were well below budget and had plenty of room for renovations that wouldn't put us upside down. Thank you Elaine!
