Eleanor Dahlin has presented an exceptional professionalism in several of my real estate transactions in Houston, TX, over the past year. She was involved from very beginning to the end of the purchase and remained a great friend thereafter. Purchasing real estate in new town can be a stressful experience. Initially, I “tried out” several RE agents, until I met Eleanor. She is easy going, yet very professional, making sure that I understood every concept and clause on the RE agreements. Eleanor has an extensive professional career in RE, and rich academic and cultural background. So, she was quickly able to relate to my graduate student background, making easier to focus on the listings and deals that fit my fiscal and living preferences well. She is not only very knowledgeable in her work, but also surprisingly accessible. Eleanor always seems to respond within a few hours regardless of the time of the day or day of the week. Since I’m tied to my PC most of my conscious hours, this worked very well. Eleanor is also very social and organizes numerous outings and events that are interesting and entertaining not only for only for new comers like us, but also for the folks who have lived in Houston for years. I feel very lucky to have Eleanor as my friend and real estate agent.
