Our Philosophy

Our goal is to get the best results possible for our clients, while making every home sale or purchase a smooth and seamless experience.

While every home is unique, what real estate transactions have in common are the dozens of details that require thoughtful organization, smart negotiation and painstaking attention.

Our clients are typically busy professionals who rely on us to manage every step of the process and get them the best possible value. We feel privileged that our clients entrust us with the most important purchase or sale they will ever make—and that so many of them tell their friends to work with us as well.

Our Expertise

While we are well qualified to handle the full range of real estate transactions, we’re also often called on by clients whose situations require special expertise.

Divorce Sales
As a former family law attorney and Special Master in divorce cases, Elaine has a unique understanding of the challenges associated with this type of transaction. She is often recommended by divorce lawyers, accountants, and financial planners as the agent of choice to help divorcing couples with their real estate needs.

Probate and Trust Sales
Elaine’s experience with probate law and estate planning makes her the right choice to handle these specialized, often complicated real estate transactions.

Relocation
Relocation can be a stressful experience. That’s why it makes sense to have an agent like Elaine who has extensive experience both selling properties for families that are leaving the area, as well as helping newcomers find the right place to call home in the Bay Area.

Investment Properties
Looking to buy a property as an investment? Considering the pros and cons of various options, such as 1031 Exchanges? Let Elaine help you find the right property to meet your investment requirements.

Green Building
As they become more and more aware of environmental issues, many homeowners want to incorporate sustainability and green building principles into their homes—from photovoltaic solar panels to sustainable flooring and energy efficient design. Dean is a certified LEED contractor, who is available to advise clients on all their green building needs.

Out of Area Referrals
Need an agent in another area? Elaine can draw on her extensive personal and professional network to find the right professionals to add to your team.

Vacation Homes
Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Whether you’d rather head for the slopes, lie on the beach, or just relax in a quiet getaway, Elaine can help you find and own that vacation home you’ve been dreaming of owning.
