Elly Harris recently oversaw the purchase of our new home in Southern California. In short, I could not have been happier with her service and I would user her again or recommend her in a heart beat. We were first introduced to Elly over a year ago by a cousin. We were living near Seattle, Washington and wanted to move back to California. She showed us a couple homes in a southern Orange County beach neighborhood which gave us a vision for where we wanted to land. The neighborhood seemed perfectly suited to our tastes. Fast forward one year and we had a buyer for our Washington home and we were ready to move. I flew down on short notice and Elly spent a day showing me several homes in Southern Orange county including two in Costa Mesa on our request which she had to drive an extra hour to show. We fell in love with a home very near to where she showed us around in 2018 and quickly opened escrow. However our Washington sale ran into trouble and we had to find an alternate buyer and deal with a sluggish lender extending our Washington closing and thereby delaying the California closing leading to a very anxious and unhappy California seller. Elly handled this entire ordeal with great skill and sensitivity for all sides involved. Along every step of the way I felt well informed of what was happening one thousand miles south of our current home in Washington and also confident that I was getting solid advise. It was crystal clear that Elly had our backs and felt committed to protect our investment. I do not miss the stress of those weeks managing two closings in different states with different ways of doing business but it is taking some getting used to not having a daily call with Elly helping me steer forward through a complicated process.
Elly (who came highly recommended by friends) is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and simply wonderful to work with! She sold a rental property for me quickly and above asking price. I live out of town and her expertise, wisdom, and willingness to go above and beyond made the whole experience painless and easy. I thoroughly trusted her judgement and recommendations for the sale and she kept me updated throughout the process. I was so grateful to work with Elly and would tell anyone looking for a realtor to look no further!
Elly Harris did an extraordinary job in helping us sell a home. She stayed on top of every detail every step of the way, communicating with me all the time. She was professional, knowledgeable, helpful, with great insight while always keeping our best interests at the forefront. She did an amazing amount of legwork that we, as out-of-town owners, needed someone to do. Her knowledge of the local market was especially valuable. At the end, she skillfully guided us to closing, at a time when we needed her experience and know-how the most. We thoroughly appreciate the job Elly did for us
