What Clients Say
“We went to the market in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 with 12 buyers at the house on day one–and had the contract that closed by the end of the day. She guided us through getting our home ready, planning for pricing, and all in accord with our goals, which we achieved. You will not work with a better pro, who brings more to the table, and with whose friendship you value more highly when you conclude the transaction. Our dreams are now before us. And that’s due to Elizabeth and her entire team.” – Tom Lee
“Elizabeth is the best, brightest and hardest working real estate agent I’ve ever seen. She sold my house in less than a week for more than asking price and with multiple offers. She also managed some repairs and staged the house prior to listing.” – David Hirshberg
“Elizabeth is the best real estate agent we’ve ever worked with! Throughout the process of looking for a home, she offered consistent attention, efficient communication and excellent resources about schools, communities and amenities. She was highly organized and strategic throughout with comparison analysis for different housing options. Elizabeth is also exceptionally sharp and talented in advice re: design trends and practical aesthetic appeal. We ultimately won our home in a multiple offer situation and credit Elizabeth and her experience and savvy advice and negotiation skills!” – Amy Hughes
