" As first time homebuyers in this crazy market, my husband and I were looking to find someone we could trust to help us navigate the process. Jelena was that person and we felt so taken care of during what can be a stressful time. Jelena helped us at every step of the way and gave us so much time and attention. She put so much energy into helping us find the RIGHT house for us. I really appreciated that she never pressured us into making an offer or offering anything we didn't feel comfortable with. I felt sure she had our best interest at heart. When you see a house with Jelena you immediately see her knowledge of the housing market and houses in general. She can identify future opportunities for expansion or spot potential problems (especially useful in the era of waived home inspections). We ended up in the perfect house because of Jelena's guidance, patience, and encouragement. "
"Jelena is the best! She's knowledgeable and professional but also very personable. What I liked most about her was that she was honestly trying to get the best home for me. As we saw a few houses that didn't click, she got a feel for my personality and what I was looking for. She never pushed me into buying a house that wasn't quite right. Then finally when we found my current house (which I love) she encouraged me to go for it. I knew her recommendation was sincere!." - Shelia
"Jelena was a pleasure to work with. As first time home buyers we were frantic and stressed and had tons of questions and expectations. Jelana was receptive to our constant questions and always composed.
she helped guide us through a tough sellers market to find an excellent home for our family." - Rich
"It was a pleasure to work with Jelena to find and buy my first property. Being a first-time buying in a hot market can be a daunting task. Jelena, however, made the process very simple. She offered great insights and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. With her knowledge, I was able to win the bid on a beautiful condominium. Every day I wake up in my new home is a pleasure, and I thank Jelena for helping me achieve the dream of ownership. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking a new home."
"Jelena is a very personable upbeat person, she was very helpful during our whole process of selling our home and finding another for us. She never made us feel we were a bother when asking questions or asking advise with either the selling or the buying,she is very knowledgeable and was a great resource to us,she knew exactly what our likes and dislikes were and could tell whether the houses we looked at were a good fit for us and our budgets. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family."
