“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!”
Elly performance was flawless with our 5th home purchase completed in December 2020 which was the most difficult real estate purchase we ever experienced. Among the hurdles was a tenant occupied property with an owner living out of town. Besides the difficulties of covid 19 hindering communication and property access, the seller chose not to have a realtor represent him. Instead he utilized an attorney friend that added addendums to the traditional buy-sell contract that led to long hours of interpretation and negotiation. We joked with Elly that she was probably now qualified to sit for the bar exam. Also complicating the process was a tenant reluctant to vacate. In order to complete the deal Elly negotiated a creative package to ensure the renter’s exit. Her work also included constant communication with a lender that continually created unforeseen road blocks and had loan officer new to the firm that needed a lot of guidance and prodding. Believe it or not, if you are still reading, I could write a book about the hours Elly had to work and the obstacles she had to overcome with her intelligent insight and problem solving, but the bottom line is she navigated a very difficult purchase with great communication skills, class, and professionalism. We recommend her unconditionally.
