We met with Elaine the day after an unsuccessful and frustrating bid on a condo in Palm Springs. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, and, as we were leaving for home in two days, Elaine posted all of our criteria on the MLS properties for sale. Over the next two months, the computer emailed us many properties closely fitting our needs and finally one came up which we and Elaine decided to offer on. After some negotiating back and forth, we got an acceptance and we closed the sale in February, 2008. Elaine then picked the escrow agent and to our great relief and pleasure, agreed to act as a "general contractor" for a fair fee to do renovations on our new home away from home. Elaine is a realtor who gives the buyer professionalism personified, enthusiasm and a determination to get it done that all buyers expect but don't often get.We don't give referrals out lightly but were pleased to do so for her to two fellow Canadians. - Lyle & Randi - Nanaimo, B.C
I'm delighted to have an opportunity to speak highly of and to recommend Elaine Stewart. She recently acted as my agent in a complex transaction which was characterized by her magnanimity while she also genuinely recognized the positive to some circumstances we encountered. Elaine's intelligence, boundless energy and desire to validate all parties' concerns is a characteristic matched only by her sense of humor and 'can do' spirit. I believe myself to be well qualified to call an impartial review of Elaine's performance due to my own managerial career in a highly demanding and public career. I present with an MBA with undergraduate studies in liberal arts and so I'm always aware of communication skills and especially in the business environment. She utilized usage of paraphrasing, to engage me in verbalizing the very thing we were doing all in the effort to ensure my comprehension of the process. Elaine brings that certain intangible to business without which makes real estate deals unnecessarily complicated and difficult to understand. I will never forget her warmth and her acumen… she is amazing. Elaine will always be held in my highest esteem and gratitude. - C.Tamker
Tracie handled our sale very professionally. She was helpful in all the new requirements and very patient in getting the needed info. We were very pleased. - P & J King
We found Elaine and her staff of Cari and Sergio to be very pleasant, prompt and committed to helping us find exactly what we were looking for in our vacation home. We appreciated that they always responded quickly to all correspondence and provided us with an abundance of information. We would highly recommend Elaine to anyone looking to purchase property. - Brent and Kathy W.
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge a wonderful real estate agent. We had the pleasure of working with Cory Alan recently. We found him to be extremely professional and knowledgeable. My brother has severe Alzheimers and he needed to be placed in a care facility. So the sale of the house involved knowledge of trust agreements and power of attorney. Cory walked us through every step of the way. He sold the house quickly and at a good price. He was caring and aware of the tough circumstances surrounding the sale. We found him to be not only a wonderful Realtor but a caring person who does his job well. We would highly recommend Cory. - Dick and Barbara Rosenthal
