What is your typical process for working with a new client?

Good listening is so important. There is a lot of nuance in helping buyers understand all the options out there, both in terms of location and inventory, and to set priorities. A detailed in-person or virtual meeting before the search begins can really help my clients establish the right search parameters and to demystify the buying and selling process. Compass' amazing technological tools make it easy for me to communicate well with clients and for their searches to evolve over time. It also allows me to give sellers real-time insights about the traffic and feedback their property is getting. With so many great tools available, it helps to meet and get connected as early in the process as possible so as to make the best possible use of my clients' valuable time. My goal is always to help clients find the best fit over the long-term, as so much of my business comes from happy repeat clients and long-standing personal referral networks.

What makes your business stand apart?

With more than fifteen years' experience in the industry, I am a keen negotiator with in-depth knowledge of the market. However, I also bring warmth and a sense of humor and compassion to the process. Real estate is a major life event for most people, and there is a lot of nuance in helping people pinpoint what is going to feel like home for them, and also reconciling their vision of home with their partner's. My goal is to make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible, and hopefully even fun!

What do clients have to say about you?

"As first-time buyers in Brookline, we couldn't have been more grateful to have had Elisabeth on our side throughout the whole process. From day one, when we were still figuring out exactly what we wanted, through to closing (and even afterward!) she was there for us with the right advice--or asking the right questions--to help us find and secure the perfect first home. When we met with her, we felt like she really listened to us and had thoughtful suggestions...It was a pleasure to work with Elisabeth---her encouragement and good humor were as invaluable as her knowledge and professionalism."

"Both of us work full time and travel frequently, and Elisabeth was flexible and accommodating of our busy schedules. When the time came to make an offer, she helped us craft it to maximize its appeal to the seller, talking us through different contingencies and other aspects of the purchase. She truly exceeded our expectations with her warmth, competence, and expertise; we'd recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat."

What geographic areas do you serve?

I have extensive experience throughout greater Boston, with a particular focus on Brookline, Newton, Needham, Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, and Boston's MetroWest area. I also offer experience with Cambridge, Somerville, and various points north and northwest of Boston.
