We met Elaine five years ago when she helped our daughter buy a condo. We were so pleased with those results that we asked her help in selling a family home last year. Again, we could not have asked for better results — Elaine sold our house THREE DAYS after we initiated the paper work — BEFORE the first open house — for OVER our asking price.
