We recently purchased our new house and both my wife and I would like to say that we received the most excellent support and guidance from Elena Hood, who acted as our broker in the transaction. Elena alerted us as soon as the house came on the market and negotiated the eventual terms and conditions of sale professionally, efficiently and effectively as our agent and ally. Our innumerable phone calls were always returned immediately and every question we asked was answered succinctly and accurately. Only half in jest I commented to my wife that Elena would be a wonderful person to have as our business partner. Equally important as her invaluable help in the closing, Elena worked patiently with us over the past 10 months as we looked at more houses than I care to recall. I can honestly say that we must have tried Elena’s patience more than once, but she was always pleasant, and more importantly, extremely helpful in offering insight and guidance in our search. In closing, let me note that I rarely write letters such as this as I believe people should always do their jobs well and we should not be surprised when they do so. However , met many brokers over the past 2 years and Elena stands out as the best and I thought everyone at Coldwell Banker should know.
