We had challenges with time-frames and other items as regards coordinating selling our home in Michigan and depending on Elena to represent us in Virginia. One of the major obstacles was that the home were purchasing was a "Sale by Buyer", handled by an Executor for an estate, who also was out of town. Elena worked with us though four quick trips to Virginia and her tireless efforts were fruitful. We are elated with our home. We feel that Elena is a new and caring friend. It is clear that Elena's efforts are not based on a quest for income as much as it is a calling she feels to assist others.
We found her on the internet and struck gold. Elena was on top of everything from the very beginning. She was in contact with us constantly, we never had to stress about getting our calls returned or not having the information we needed. She was happy to meet with us to show the home to family members after we had the contract in. We ended up buying the first home we looked at in person. Elena repeatedly made sure we were okay with that and didn't want to continue looking - she wasn't looking for a quick sale, but a happy client. Elena has been in contact with us twice since we closed on the home to see how things are going. I would highly recommend Elena to anyone searching for a new home. I know you will be happy and extremely impressed!
She was always available day or night to answer questions and follow up on both listings we wanted to see, as well as those we had seen. She worked hard to find us the best house, in the area we wanted, for the money we wanted to spend. Elena always made sure we were not being taken advantage of. She paid special attention to every detail when we were closing the deal on the home we purchased. Not only would Elena's skills and talent be valuable to anybody buying or selling their home, but she is truly someone worth knowing.
