Our house hunting journey was quite a nightmare before we met Elly. We initially worked with another realtor prior to Elly who was sneaky and dishonest. We then switched gears and found Elly through a recommendation by a friend who has worked with Elly multiple times. After our first phone call with her, we blew a sigh of relief and knew we were in good hands. Elly is EXTREMELY responsive and receptive to your wants/needs when looking for a home and is very knowledgeable of the real estate market. We were first time homebuyers and she helped guide us through the entire process, gave us her honest opinion as if she was the one buying a home, a trait we really appreciated (especially after our terrible first realtor whom we couldn’t trust). We are now living in our dream home and couldn’t have done it without Elly.
Elly acted as our agent in a lengthy and difficult negotiation to purchase a condominium in San Clemente. Throughout the process she was professional and very capable in communicating with the seller’s agent and with us. At the final inspection the seller’s agent was extremely complimentary of Elly and her skills. Elly responded quickly to any of our questions and concerns. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and getting to know her. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an agent in the San Clemente area.
I have bought and sold a number of houses over the years (13, by my count) and Elly is, by far, the best real estate agent with whom i have had the pleasure of working. Very knowledgeable about the area, very responsive to my requests and questions, and an ability to stick with things even when it looked like i would never find a home. Given the downturn in the housing market during the pandemic (in terms of inventory, not cost), it took over a year of looking to find a place to my liking; not once did Elly complain or express concern about the length of the process or my “pickiness” in finding the right home; as a result, I DID find the right home, and Elly was largely responsible for it. Can’t thank her enough!
I cannot speak highly enough of Elly! My husband and I worked with Elly over the past few months, as she represented us throughout the purchase of our new home, and in selling our prior home. It was extremely clear to us from our initial conversations with Elly that she is an expert in her craft, has vast knowledge of the local real estate market in San Clemente, and she means business. Elly is extremely friendly, highly professional, to-the-point, and organized. She always kept us informed of what was to come next in the process, leaving us with no surprises. On top of that, her negotiating skills are top notch, making my husband and I feel much more at ease when we were at points in the process of negotiation. Put simply, we TRUSTED Elly through every step of the way, and trust is not easy to come by when working with a real estate agent. I personally feel like I’ve known Elly for years now, and cannot emphasize enough that you cannot go wrong hiring Elly to represent you in your next home pursuit!
“THE GOLD STANDARD –Elly is THE BEST realtor we have ever worked with (and we have competed a dozen transactions). She is professional, knowledgeable, and well connected in the San Clemente area. After one year, we just closed on our dream home in Shorecliffs– only due to her persistence, patience, hard work and relationships– she made it happen during the craziest real estate market ever. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”
