"Elena Mendelson is a true professional. Her personal and professional qualities deserve highest respect. It is very hard to find someone dedicated to their craft, but with Elena you will not be disappointed. From the moment of our initial conversation with Elena, and until our closing day, my wife and I never felt being pushed to make a rushed decision. She was extremely responsive to our phone calls, texts and emails, and was always on top of all the hurdles during the process and would follow up immediately. Home buying is very stressful, and thankfully Elena was by our side to take the edge off through her confidence, knowledge and responsiveness. In the end we got what we wanted, in the price range we wanted, with the loan and rate that we wanted. I couldn’t ask for more! I would recommend Elena to anyone who is looking to buy a house and needs help. I know I certainly will use her services again in the future." - Eugene
"Elena shepherded me and my fiance through our first home purchase, and were extremely impressed with her expertise, ability to execute quickly, and professionalism. We were psychotically detail-oriented clients with a pretty stringent set of requirements for our first home, and on top of it all were extremely ignorant of the entire process. Elena took the time to explain the full process of buying a house, escorted us to see 80+ homes within a few months, and was always, always kind and patient. We never felt pressured to make any decisions, and she very promptly answered all of our questions. I personally really enjoyed her fluff-free communication style :) -- she's very direct, doesn't sugarcoat, but also has a great read on how to soothe our worries and how to best address our questions. Even after we found a house, she was an excellent partner in a tricky closing, and continued to volunteer her advice and services after we closed on the house. She still keeps in touch :), and I'm looking forward to hopefully working with her again in the future!" - Cantalina
"Elena is an outstanding real estate agent, extremely hard working business professional, and smart well rounded and a great person. We have worked with Elena for the last 2 years and got to know her very well. We are extremely demanding and difficult to please and Elena has exceeded all expectations. After a long search we have finally gotten into contract on a great house in Danville. Not only was Elena objective and patient with us, she was able to deliver by establishing rapport with the largest agent in Danville and beating out 5 other offers and winning the house. It's worth noting that Elena was on vacation in Europe when we finally got into contract and she literally worked the whole trip - showing her unbelievable work ethic. In hindsight, Elena was always spot on her recommendations and calls on the market. Elena is extremely attentive inviting her clients to a lot of events, never forgetting about your birthday, Father's Day and a lot of other occasions. Her personal touch goes above and beyond anything I have received from any professional. When she learned that I needed a new job, she immediately connected me with relevant contacts in her professional network. In fact I now turn to Elena for a lot of things such as recommendation on contractors or house insurance. She is very knowledgable and expert on anything house related. I know for fact that I am going to be calling her our next house purchase or sale!" - Diana & Ilya
"Elena was AMAZING! We want to buy another house just so that we can work with her again. As first time home buyers, she gave us all the advice we wanted and more. She is not afraid to share her professional opinion and it was something that we definitely appreciated and needed. Her depth of knowledge is seriously impressive. Plus, if she doesn't know the answer, she makes sure to track it down. For example, if we had specific questions about certain properties she would email the listing agent the same day that we saw the property in order to get an answer. We like to think of ourselves as pretty on top of things but it seemed like she was always one step ahead of us. We were also very impressed with her responsiveness and attention to detail. I honestly can't think of a time that she responded within more than a few hours. Elena is a realtor for life. Even after we closed and moved in, she is still making sure that everything is going smoothly. I know that if we have any problems she is available and willing to help us however she can. When you are making such a big life decision, you want someone you can trust. Elena is definitely that person and we truly can't recommend her enough." - Maryn & Andrew
"When I started down the path to home ownership, I knew an expert realtor was paramount to finding the perfect home and successfully navigating the purchasing process. As I began searching out recommendations and reading reviews, I noticed a trend of overwhelmingly positive feedback for Elena Mendelson. After our first correspondence and again after our first meeting, I was so impressed with her professionalism, depth of knowledge, and willingness to spend time listening, educating, and advising. It was also abundantly clear from the beginning Elena genuinely cares for her clients and is passionate about her work. Not even two months later, I'm writing this review from the living room of my new home. I am so grateful to have found Elena, and I encourage anyone looking for a true real estate professional and advocate to contact her." - Stacy, Martinez
