    What Clients Are Saying

    "We have purchased two homes with Elaine Carlson over the past few years. When we were considering the South Bay beach cities/PV area, her local knowledge was invaluable. She is 100% client focused, meaning that she took the time each time to understand our needs and focus our search effectively. Elaine is extremely professional and responsive, typically returning any message within hours if not live. She provided us great perspectives on properties, amenities, local schools and put us in contact with others who could give additional independent advice. She also helped us rent a property and found us great tenants with excellent personal references. We have recommended Elaine to others and would do so any time."
    "Elaine is wonderful. She is diligent, knowledgeable, professional and very gifted in her craft. She is top of the tier in her field."
    Alison Blasko
    "For over 18 months Elaine diligently searched to find us our new home and she listed and sold our former home. Elaine Carlson is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and the closing process. She is excellent in keeping us informed and making sure the paper work is correct and in order. She gave us daily updates of progress and worked closely with our lender. As a college real estate educator, I have confidence in her and have referred others to her. "
