Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $875K in Moraga, CA.
If you are selling a home in Moraga you owe it to yourself to talk to Elena. We interviewed several agents and were thoroughly impressed with her knowledge of the local market, the profile of prospective buyers and sense of timing. Her experience in our neighborhood and what we needed to do to attract the ideal buyer proved to be invaluable. We had multiple offers, sold at a great price and a Elena managed the entire process efficiently.
My husband and I decided to take advantage of the sellers’ real estate market this summer and listed our home with Elena Hood. From our first meeting with Elena and Larry through the entire transaction, it was apparent that we had made the right decision in choosing Elena. She is the epitome of professionalism, easy to talk to and work with. She assured us continually that she was available at any time and any time was the right time for any reason. Our home was staged beautifully, mostly with items from Elena’s treasure trove, including some pieces from her own home. She treated us with the utmost respect and patience. Within a day of the 1st open house, we had 2 offers! What better testimony that the Elena Hood group knows what they are doing and that they do it well.
The Elena Hood Group is the most knowledgeable, professional team we found in all of Lamorinda. Wonderful people to both work with and spend time with. Thank you for your patience and expertise, we love our home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in San Ramon, CA.
After living in our family home for 35 years, it was a difficult and emotional decision to sell it. Jim and I interviewed several local realtors and decided that Elena was far and above the best of the best. She has the needed expertise, contacts and pulse on the market to represent either buyer and seller. Our home was a very unique home and needed a special buyer. Elena and Larry found that buyer and we negotiated the sale of our home. We thought the hard part of relocating was behind us but finding a new home turned out to be a bigger challenge than we had initially thought. They showed us over 100 homes!! When we decided on the one we finally purchased, it was a short sale. This required patience and consistant follow through. I can only tell others that regardless of whether you are a seller or a buyer, Elena and Larry will do an excellent job for you.

Elena was incredibly patient with us. We initially decided to put our house on the market several years ago and got cold feet at the last minute. Last year, she helped us find a wonderful house in Lafayette and was instrumental in negotiating a great price. But we still had to sell our house in Orinda. Elena advised us on what we needed to do to sell in a challenging economy. She has great instincts for the market; we received two offers immediately and ended up getting more than our asking price. Throughout the process, Elena was responsive and professional. She operates with tremendous integrity and I would recommend her to anyone.
Elena was professional and thorough in selling our house. She listened to our concerns and ideas, made good suggestions and helped us prepare the house for showings. We ultimately sold the house at a price we were pleased with and in a timely manner. We have no complaints about the service she provided and I would recommend her to others.
Elena Hood, and her team, provided far and away the best real estate experience I've had. Elena and Larry know the area extremely well, are smart about the market and consistently gave great advice about strategies and techniques for buying a house. They were very professional and competent, which is extremely important to me in a service industry like real estate. Elena and her team were available at all hours and always very responsive. They came up with creative approaches that uncovered unexpected opportunities in the search for a home. Overall they inspired confidence and I always felt like I was in capable hands. Once we located a property the service didn't stop as they were very well connected with lenders, inspection companies and anyone you need to see the transaction through to completion. Elena and her team were a real pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.525M in Moraga, CA.
Elena sold our home in August of 2010 in Moraga. She did a fantastic job in
staging our home, marketing our home, holding open houses, assisted us in having
pre sale work done to our home, working with potential clients and closing the sale.
She is professional, completely dedicated and focused on the many issues that confront selling a home, and works well with buyers. In Moraga, Elena Hood has consistently sold the vast majority of homes over $1 million for many years, yet she has been very successful in selling many homes under $1 million. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly professional realtor in the East Bay.

Elena helped us sell our parents' home in Moraga, in a very challenging market. She's an expert in the area, particularly in the Sander's Ranch development where the house was located. She was honest with the pricing, and supported our decisions all the way. She made good recommendations that led to a good sales experience and outcome. The house was very well marketed, and she lived up to all of her promises and responsibilities. I highly recommend Elena's group to buy or sell your Moraga home!
