Client Commendations

“T. and I both felt you handled each detail of the process with professionalism and our best interests in mind. We know how challenging it was to sell a unique million dollar home in a slowing market, but you did it! I was pleased with your initiative in keeping interest in the property as high as possible and with your strategy in working with multiple offers. The sale exceeded our expectations and we greatly appreciate your work."
  -- Tom and Tanya K.
“Our house sold in 17 days first time on the market, no pulling off and re-listing, in a market that was beginning to soften…. We met personally with the sellers of the house we wanted to buy prior to having a buyer for our home… It was that meeting which secured the ‘patience’ enabling us to buy the home we most preferred when the sellers already had an offer on the table.”
  -- Betsy and Tracey M.
“My husband and I have sold 13 homes over the years….From Experience we can say that you have gone above and beyond the call of your professional duty….Your guidance in the process...helped us to get top dollar for the home….”

“You have taught us so much about the market; what to look for in a home and what to beware of; what to expect in the offer process; what to expect in the closing process...! You removed any pain associated with buying property.... Everything that you said would happen has happened.”
  -- Jody and Dan S.
“Your insistence on our conducting the series of inspections that we did improved our negotiating position and convinced us that we got the best possible ‘deal’ in the end, a feat that is difficult to accomplish during such a seller’s market.”
  -- Julie A. and Fred M.
“From her original presentation through post-closing she was in continuous contact with us. She coached us through the pricing process and was incredibly strategic in all aspects of the sale process. As you probably know from the final sale price, her diligence and negotiating skills paid off for us!”
  -- John V.
“We want to thank you for all your hard work, persistence, shrewdness and attention to detail. In the incredible housing market, we know that your efforts were invaluable. We love our new home and look forward to fixing it up.”

“Ellen understood and tackled the complexities of my townhouse to work in tandem with my skilled finance guru through closing, while at the same time she successfully negotiated the purchase of my new house. This particular sale had twelve multiple offers. With her keen sense of the East Bay housing market, extensive real estate background, strategic thinking, and her personal attributes, I was quite amazed at what we accomplished. ...she respected my time, was sensitive to my situation, and clearly understood my needs. …In addition, I found it comforting to know that her reputation amongst her peers and colleagues is outstanding.”
