Amazing work

“I am completely aware and very thankful for the level of professionalism you both displayed in a less than ideal situation and market. When I consider that I both sold and bought a residence within 8 weeks of initial correspondence with you, it was incredible work. Please remember that you prepared the house for sale including painting, re-carpeting, planting, cleaning, storage and then staging…. it’s amazing work.”

David Knox, buyer and seller

The Right Combination of Legal Background and Real Estate Expertise

“Elaine’s reputation precedes her.  As a family law attorney and broker, Elaine White has all the necessary skills to guide your clients through the selling or buying process.  As a listing agent for divorcing parties, Elaine is able to navigate strained relationships to accomplish the common goal—selling the house for the most amount of money in the shortest period of time.  We consistently receive extremely positive feedback from clients who use Elaine.  Some have even liked her so much that they have hired her as the buying agent to purchase their next home.  We never hesitate to recommend Elaine to our clients.”

Marisa C. Dane & Michèle Bissada 


As Easy As Can Be

“Elaine and Dean made selling our old house and moving to our new house as easy as can be. They had our house read to go on the market in one week, and helped with everything from shopping and installing new fixtures, meeting with contractors, and helping us pick paint colors! As busy parents of three young children I don’t think we could have managed the process without them. Six months after our move I still call Elaine and Dean when I need help with house-related questions, and they still go out of their way to help me. We could not have been happier with Elaine and Dean’s expertise and guidance.”

An Invaluable Partner and Resource

“Elaine is not only an incredibly knowledgeable, professional & dedicated real estate agent, she’s an invaluable partner & resource to our family. When we bought our first home in Menlo Park, Elaine did an amazing job of listening to our needs & desires, working with our challenging schedules & maintaining an impressive pace to help us achieve our goal. Beyond her insights into real estate & the local market, Elaine consistently provided outstanding advice. She even helped us find resources for our remodeling project.”

Chet & Roxanne Bozdog, buyers and sellers

Creative and Persistent

“Most recently, Elaine was instrumental in helping our growing family achieve another goal by finding our dream home in Atherton & selling our home in Menlo Park. To sell our home, Elaine led the efforts to prepare & present the house in the best possible light which provided us with the most favorable price & terms. In buying our new dream home, Elaine was creative & persistent. Ultimately, she even negotiated our purchase of the furnishings & artwork which made our dream home move-in & family ready.

Elaine continues to be there for our family as a trusted adviser, friend & resource. We have & will continue to recommend Elaine to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Her knowledge, negotiating skills, great service, professionalism & outstanding performance truly set her apart.”

Chet & Roxanne Bozdog, buyers and sellers

Available Whenever We Needed

“Elaine, you are completely knowledgeable about the market and what appeals to buyers. Additionally, your ability to coordinate contractors and suppliers to ready the house for market in a cost-efficient manner was invaluable. You were also available whenever we needed you, had answers to all of our questions and are a skillful negotiator, all while maintaining the utmost integrity.”

John Stacey, seller

On Your Side

“When it comes to real estate transactions, it’s sure nice when Elaine is on your side of the table.”

Extraordinary and Exceptional

“Elaine is an extraordinary realtor and an exceptional human being. Coldwell Banker is fortunate to have such an outstanding employee and asset.”

Extensive Preparation Pays Off

“We met Elaine about two years ago when she sold our neighbor’s home. We saw how she did extensive preparation and how it paid off in a great sale price. Although we were not ready to move at that time, we consulted with Elaine about repairs and maintenance of our home with an eye towards a sale in the future. We followed her recommendations and when we were ready to sell listed our home with her. In a short period of time, she coordinated repairing items indicated by inspections, updating of our master bath, installing of new carpet, painting inside and outside, landscaping and staging. The house looked great. We received 7 offers in 5 days and got a great price. We would certainly use Elaine as our realtor again and would recommend her to our friends and family.”

Signe von Verdo, seller

We love it!

“Thanks again for all your help. We really love the house and we love you as well!.”
