' Elaine has helped us sell two homes in a difficult for sellers market. One sold in 2010 and the second more recently this year. 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 reccomendations are spot on. I highly recommend her services and would not hesitate to ask her to represent us again if the need arises.:

"As someone who worked (not as a realtor) in the real estate industry I am very weary of realtors in general. It is a low threshold profession that plays a major role in one of the biggest transactions a person can make in their life. There are plenty of agents out there with a license but one that is top notch is not easy to find as a consumer. A good agent is hard to find - this person has to be great at listening to what you want, experienced, technologically savvy, organized, resourceful, responsive, knowledgeable about local markets, ethical and honest. Realtors make a nice commission, but they are only worth that commission if they are a good one. I am a critical person by nature and it is not easy to earn my trust, so I went to trusted sources to get a recommendation. Luckily I have a friend locally who is a wonderful and reputable realtor and I asked her to recommend me an agent who she enjoys working with and specializes in the Fremont and Pleasanton area.
I got in touch with Elaine very early in the game. I contacted her before my husband and I even got a pre-approval and we let her know that we are interested in working with her. Even after I chatted with her on the phone I checked out her website and looked at her pending and sold homes. Even though we are contacting her as a buyer, because I still follow the market I knew that we are in a seller's market that is heating up on account of low inventory so I wanted an agent who is very experience representing the seller as well.
Working with Elaine has been awesome - her experience and professionalism really made a difference for us in this difficult sellers market. She has earned our family's trust and we definitely feel that she completely has our interest at heart. She has been able to counsel us through multiple offer, odd sellers, appraisers and even contractors. She has even checked up on us after close of escrow. If you want to have a highly competent agent who is dedicated to her client's interest then you need to contact Elaine."

“I’ve worked with Elaine on selling two older properties and my own home—and she referred me to an excellent Coldwell Banker Realtor in San Luis Obispo to help me buy a home there. She’s great; I’d recommend her to my friends anytime.”
-Marion Hatland, Client
“We had tight deadlines for completing a number of repair projects because we were leaving the country. Elaine and her staff supervised that work, met the deadlines, and managed our property until it was sold. We concluded the transaction working from the Netherlands, and the constant communication between Elaine, her staff and us made everything go smoothly.”
-Martin and Kim Ebert, Clients
“Elaine and I have worked together on selling two homes and buying two others—that’s four transactions over a 10-year time span. Her performance is always efficient, professional and consistent. We have an excellent working relationship—I trust her completely.”
-Pierre LeBlanc, Client
“We were immediately impressed by Elaine’s professionalism and knowledge. She and her staff took excellent care of us and our transaction went beautifully. So we worked with her on selling a second home and it went just as well!”
-Bill and Diane Strong, Clients
“I worked with Elaine to sell a house in Fremont while living in Virginia. I never had to come to California and we got the job done with no hassle and minimum effort on my part. She did a great job.”
-Jim Ewanisik, Client
“Elaine encouraged us to buy our first house, and I was one of her recommended vendors for years. Her clients that I worked with had only good things to say about her. So do we.”
-Greg and Doreen Pontzious, Clients
“We worked with Elaine for quite a while before putting our house on the market. She advised us on which home improvement projects to do, and we used several vendors she recommended. It helped us sell in 8 days for $16,000 over the listing price. We would recommend Elaine highly to anyone.”
-Tom and Karen Poos, Clients
“Elaine had a strategy for selling our house that included getting all our inspections done early, preparing the property for maximum appeal, and choosing the right time to go on the market. We sold in 6 days for $40,000 over the asking price. We think she’s the best Realtor around and so do our friends and neighbors.”
-Jerry and Anita Atnip, Clients
"Elaine is amazing! Extremely professional, competent and always on top of everything. She worked hard to make meetings and other things fit into our super crazy, busy schedule. Selling and buying a house can be so stressful, but Elaine made everything much easier and enjoyable!"
"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."
"Elaine Arnt is the most professional of professionals. She gave us detailed but easy to understand guidance at every step in the sale of our house. Her help got us more than $50,000 over all comparable sales in the neighborhood. WE are extremely pleased to have the advantage of both her years of experience and her keen understanding of our local housing market. We recommend her without any reservation!"
-Ned Carleton, Client
"Exceptional professional. Elaine is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the local market, well organized, direct and to the point and very responsive to a buyer's needs. WE viewed properties, selected a perfect fit and closed escrow efficiently and effortlessly with her guidance. Elaine will be my agent for any future real estate transactions. Simply, an outstanding Real Estate Agent."
"This is the third home I have sold with Elaine and she is great. She provides you with the support you need, gives up-to-the-minute information, helps with what needs to be done and get the home ready for the market, is always available to answer questions and concerns and guides you along the process until you have closed escrow. She is a person of integrity and professional that I would highly recommend to anyone considering the purchase or sale of a home."

"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 successful Open House we received 12 offers over our asking price!"
-Bob Wreed, 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!"
