Lyle & Randi – Nanaimo, B.C., CANADA

“We met with Elaine the day after an unsuccessful and frustrating bid on a condo in Palm Springs. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, and, as we were leaving for home in two days, Elaine posted all of our criteria on the MLS properties for sale.

Over the next two months, the computer emailed us many properties closely fitting our needs and finally one came up which we and Elaine decided to offer on. After some negotiating back and forth, we got an acceptance and we closed the sale in February, 2008.

Elaine then picked the escrow agent and to our great relief and pleasure, agreed to act as a “general contractor” for a fair fee to do renovations on our new home away from home.

Elaine is a realtor who gives the buyer professionalism personified, enthusiasm and a determination to get it done that all buyers expect but don’t often get.We don’t give referrals out lightly but were pleased to do so for her to two fellow Canadians.”
