Praise for Elissa Whiteman

Elissa and Ray were great..always kept us informed and up to date on what was happening. They made the difficult process of selling my parents’ condo after their death much easier for my family. Kudos's to them...highly recommended!! (Debbie of Highland Park)

Elissa Whiteman is a wonderful Realtor to work with. She was always professional, answered all of our questions and made selling our condo stress free. I felt she always had our best interest and was always honest with us from deciding on a price (she did intensive research on what condo units sold in my building), sharing feedback from showings and the open house, and then the final sale. I would recommend Elissa to anyone buying or selling a home. (Ellen of Deerfield)

Clients are saying:

"Elissa was patient, honest and so kind throughout the whole process. She really listened to what was important to me in a house, and she didn't waste my time or hers showing me properties she knew wouldn't be a good fit. I would definitely work with her again!"
