Clients are saying:
"There aren't enough stars for how likely we are to recommend Elliot! Choosing Elliot to help us find and buy our first home was the best decision we could have made.
From the beginning, he provided all the tools, the knowledge and guidance possible to make us feel confident and secure throughout the entire process. The home search process can be exhausting and overwhelming, but Elliot was always beyond prepared during our showings and meetings, detailing everything and providing instrumental suggestions, always making us feel encouraged and supported. There were never any small details missed, we never felt scared or misunderstood and by the time we were ready to close on a property, we really felt like we knew the neighborhood well due to Elliot's extensive knowledge.
While all of this speaks to Elliot's professionalism and overall commitment to providing the best service, what was most important to us was his commitment to listening and understanding– our preferences (big or small), us as a couple and what would make a home perfect for us."
"We are so glad that we chose Elliot and her partner, Lindsey Delrahim, first to find us and land our dream home, and then to sell our home in under 30 days in the worst conditions for sale that we have ever seen in our neighborhood. Lindsey and Elliot were insightful and proactive in taking the steps to make our house look like the gem we thought it was and were involved at every step to achieve such success. We've never worked with realtors that put in even one fourth this effort. We wouldn't consider any other realtors for future purchase or sales."
"Elliot far exceeded my expectations. I was considering not using an agent, because I’m in business and felt like I could handle it. Not only was I very wrong, but I wouldn't have bought my home without him. He was amazing during the negotiation process and helped me think about a lot of things that a first time buyer would have otherwise missed. He even put me in touch with a great attorney, mortgage broker, contractor, and architect. Elliot had my business for life - you should hire him!"
"Elliot was an amazing agent! Despite having to manage many different clients, he always made me feel like I was his only one. He was so great at fitting my search to my vision for a home. He even helped me get set up with local contractors and decorators that he was experienced with and trusted. Elliot and his agency partner Lindsey were an amazing team for me and they made sure I clearly understood every step in the home buying process along the way (I am a first time buyer). I will definitely be referring any friends in the market for a new home to Elliot. Thanks for everything Elliot and Lindsey!!!"
"Elliot was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about various neighborhoods and what a good deal looks like. He always had our best interest in mind (never felt any pressure). He did a great job negotiating on our behalf and helping us work to a successful close. I would absolutely recommend him and hope to work with him again in the future."
