Profile Picture of Elaine Carlson.
5/5
Elaine Carlson was a pleasure to work with on our recent real estate transactions. She is knowledgeable and truly understands the nuisances of the market in the South Bay Area. Her attention to detail and professionalism are unmatched and we highly recommend her as an agent for any and all real estate needs. We would welcome the opportunity to work with her again.

This was my first home buying experience, and I feel extremely fortunate to have found Elaine. Elaine was an absolute joy to work with, and I felt like she really went above and beyond to help me find the best home for my needs. As a first time home buyer, I was initially intimidated by the entire process (especially in today’s current market). However, Elaine quickly alleviated all of my concerns with her kindness and professionalism. From the outset, Elaine took charge and was a strong advocate for me, while simultaneously gently leading me through the process step-by-step. I was extremely impressed with Elaine’s extensive knowledge of real estate, attention to detail and ability to negotiate the best possible deal on my behalf. Elaine was also extremely communicative and patient with answering all of my questions, and never once made me feel like a bother. Overall, Elaine is hands down the best realtor I could have ever asked for, and I am forever grateful to her for helping me close on my dream home. I highly recommend Elaine Carlson for anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Cannot say enough good things about our home buying experience with Elaine Carlson. She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home in PV. So knowledgeable and patient with us.

Elaine was simply the best realtor we have ever worked with in our 35 years of moving around the world and through numerous home purchases. Her recommendation to professionally stage the home paid off tenfold. Her willingness to process the multiple offers we received within 48 hours of her listing while on her vacation was amazing. She offered professional feedback on improvements which would help the property sell. She was in constant contact with our escrow company to ensure the closing went smoothly. The photography, brochure and listing she developed were nothing short of perfection. We have been blessed to have used her both to buy and sell our property in California. In closing Elaine is the gold standard for all realtors!

Elaine Carlson has been our real estate agent since 2010. So far, she has handled four real estate transactions for us. We continue to be impressed with Elaine’s real estate knowledge, organization, attention to detail, communication and tech skills, and her friendly attitude. Elaine worked hard for us in order to achieve the BEST outcome in selling and purchasing our properties. She always kept us updated and was always available to us via text, e-mail or phone. We highly recommend Elaine and intend on continuing to use her for any further real estate transactions.

Elaine was excellent. Whatever I needed done Elaine was there to handle it. Every time I had a question she was there to answer it either by phone call, email or text. She went above and beyond selling our house. If I ever have to sell or buy another house, Elaine will be the first person I call.
by Lori P.
From my first communication with Elaine Carlson, I knew I was working with a knowledgeable realtor. Elaine professionally evaluated the property I was selling, helped me set a price I was happy with and that was competitive for selling quickly, helped me stage the property, and was always available and responsive to my questions and concerns during the very stressful process of selling real estate! With Elaine guiding me I felt I was in very competent hands throughout the process. You want Elaine Carlson as your partner in any real estate transaction.

From our very first conversation to now, two months after closing, Elaine has taken care of every detail to ensure a smooth house hunting, purchase, and closing process. When issues outside of our control arose, Elaine went above and beyond to mitigate them and to ensure we were able to close and move into our home within our timeline. We relocated from out of state and so Elaine was our ‘boots on the ground’ when we couldn’t be there and communicated with us so that we didn’t miss anything. We are grateful for her knowledge and experience, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Palos Verdes.
