Team reviews

I have had the great pleasure of working with Elaine Golden-Gealer and I must say she is a top notch agent with all the experience, knowledge, ethics, and negotiating skills any buyer or seller would need. If you want an agent that understands the market, understands your needs, and can best represent you I would highly recommend that you contact Elaine to help you buy or sell your next home. As a buyer she was able to provide quick feedback on the properties I was interested in and knew the local market like the back of her hand. She was a sharp negociater and knew very well what the homes would sell for despite the listed prices. I couldn't have done this without her.

Sold a home in 2011.

Elaine has exceptional locl knowledge and resources. Her process expertise is highly professional and highly skilled. Responsiveness is "Johnny on the Spot", always, no matter what time, day or night. Most impressive of all is her diplomatic negotiation skills having played a vital part in selling some 18 of 24 condos, most as a soul agent in just six (6) months time! Yes, I would hire her again.
