Elaine Arnt

Realtor, Senior Sales Assoc.
License #:
CalRE #01046497

I've lived in the San Francisco East Bay Area virtually my entire life, with my husband of 35 years, and have raised my two sons here. I’ve spent my entire 30-year real estate career here. Having sold over 1000 homes in this area, I know the people, the market and the communities, and can help you make the right decisions about buying or selling a home in any of the cities I serve.

To ensure you receive the best client service, I have an escrow coordinator with 25 years of experience to assist me in the administrative details of marketing your property, managing vendors and partners, and monitoring the escrow process.

I have the education, real-estate-specific training, and experience to ensure I can guide you through any transaction as smoothly as possible. But beyond that, I bring to every relationship an ability to "read" people that allows me to adapt my business style to fit with yours. As a result, we work as a team to reach your goals. So, in reality, it's only partly "about me"; it's really "about us" working well together.

"Elaine is a wonderful agent. She helped us sell our home and buy a new home simultaneously. She walked us through every detail either in person, email or text; because she's always available and quick to respond. She explained the market fluctuations and timing, recommended stagers and other service providers and sold our house after one open house weekend. For the house we purchased she put together a very strong contingent offer. It's not easy to sell or buy a home and if I ever go through it again I'm definitely going to work with Elaine."

  -Anonymous, Client

"We sold our last home with elaine 15 years ago, so we knew what a pro she is. Working with her this time only reinforced our opinion. From the very start, she was all about what was right for us. Using market data and her experience we decided the timing to go on the market and a straight forward "to do list" to maximize the value. Not that it wasn't hard work, but she gave us confidence that if we followed the plan, we would be rewarded with the best results... and we were rewarded with 5 offers in the first week and 5% over asking price. We highly recommend Elaine!"

  -Peter Stokes, Client

"We chose Elaine to sell our house and were extremely happy we did. She patiently guided us through the selling process and made sure we fully understood the myriad of details and the legal aspects of selling our house. She has a list of vendors she works with which helped us when we had to get our house ready for sale. Because of her reputation, we never had to wait long for call backs, their prices were fair, and the work they did was very good. Two days after a very successfl Open House we received 12 offers over our asking price!"

  -Bob Wreed, Client

"Elaine has helped us sell two homes in a difficult for sellers market. One sold in 2010 and the second one more recently this year in early 2012. The fact that we asked Elaine to represent us as sellers a second time says alot. She is the consummate professional with many years of experience. She is extremely easy to work with and gently guides her clients to the right decisions while always respecting their needs. Her advice and recommendations are spot on. I highly recommend her services and would not hesitate to ask her to represent us again if the need arises."
