Amazing work

“I am completely aware and very thankful for the level of professionalism you both displayed in a less than ideal situation and market. When I consider that I both sold and bought a residence within 8 weeks of initial correspondence with you, it was incredible work. Please remember that you prepared the house for sale including painting, re-carpeting, planting, cleaning, storage and then staging…. it’s amazing work.”

David Knox, buyer and seller


The Right Combination of Legal Background and Real Estate Expertise

“Elaine’s reputation precedes her. As a family law attorney and broker, Elaine White has all the necessary skills to guide your clients through the selling or buying process. As a listing agent for divorcing parties, Elaine is able to navigate strained relationships to accomplish the common goal—selling the house for the most amount of money in the shortest period of time. We consistently receive extremely positive feedback from clients who use Elaine. Some have even liked her so much that they have hired her as the buying agent to purchase their next home. We never hesitate to recommend Elaine to our clients.”

Marisa C. Dane & Michèle Bissada



As Easy As Can Be

“Elaine and Dean made selling our old house and moving to our new house as easy as can be. They had our house read to go on the market in one week, and helped with everything from shopping and installing new fixtures, meeting with contractors, and helping us pick paint colors! As busy parents of three young children I don’t think we could have managed the process without them. Six months after our move I still call Elaine and Dean when I need help with house-related questions, and they still go out of their way to help me. We could not have been happier with Elaine and Dean’s expertise and guidance.”

Flavia Herrod, Vintage Oaks buyer and seller

An Invaluable Partner and Resource

“Elaine is not only an incredibly knowledgeable, professional & dedicated real estate agent, she’s an invaluable partner & resource to our family. When we bought our first home in Menlo Park, Elaine did an amazing job of listening to our needs & desires, working with our challenging schedules & maintaining an impressive pace to help us achieve our goal. Beyond her insights into real estate & the local market, Elaine consistently provided outstanding advice. She even helped us find resources for our remodeling project.”

Chet & Roxanne Bozdog, buyers and sellers 


Creative and Persistent

“Most recently, Elaine was instrumental in helping our growing family achieve another goal by finding our dream home in Atherton & selling our home in Menlo Park. To sell our home, Elaine led the efforts to prepare & present the house in the best possible light which provided us with the most favorable price & terms. In buying our new dream home, Elaine was creative & persistent. Ultimately, she even negotiated our purchase of the furnishings & artwork which made our dream home move-in & family ready.

Elaine continues to be there for our family as a trusted adviser, friend & resource. We have & will continue to recommend Elaine to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Her knowledge, negotiating skills, great service, professionalism & outstanding performance truly set her apart.”

Chet & Roxanne Bozdog, buyers and sellers


Available Whenever We Needed

“Elaine, you are completely knowledgeable about the market and what appeals to buyers. Additionally, your ability to coordinate contractors and suppliers to ready the house for market in a cost-efficient manner was invaluable. You were also available whenever we needed you, had answers to all of our questions and are a skillful negotiator, all while maintaining the utmost integrity.”

John Stacey, seller


On Your Side

“When it comes to real estate transactions, it’s sure nice when Elaine is on your side of the table.”

Dr. Audrey H. Hurley, buyer and seller

Extraordinary and Exceptional

“Elaine is an extraordinary realtor and an exceptional human being. Coldwell Banker is fortunate to have such an outstanding employee and asset.”


Extensive Preparation Pays Off

“We met Elaine about two years ago when she sold our neighbor’s home. We saw how she did extensive preparation and how it paid off in a great sale price. Although we were not ready to move at that time, we consulted with Elaine about repairs and maintenance of our home with an eye towards a sale in the future. We followed her recommendations and when we were ready to sell listed our home with her. In a short period of time, she coordinated repairing items indicated by inspections, updating of our master bath, installing of new carpet, painting inside and outside, landscaping and staging. The house looked great. We received 7 offers in 5 days and got a great price. We would certainly use Elaine as our realtor again and would recommend her to our friends and family.”

Signe von Verdo, seller

We love it!

“Thanks again for all your help. We really love the house and we love you as well!.”

A Big Difference in My Life

“Earlier this year you recommended Elaine White to us to help us sell our parent’s home in Redwood City. We ultimately chose Elaine and Coldwell Banker and I am happy to say that we had the most terrific experience. Elaine, as you said, is an excellent agent! She made recommendations on the property, what to fix up and what not to, provided competitive vendors to do work, managed the work and ultimately we sold the property over market in 7 days. With all the turmoil of managing my parents’ health, their move to Santa Rosa, and all, having an agent like Elaine was a God-send. Thanks so much for the excellent recommendation, it made a big difference in my life this year.”

John Hirsekorn, seller


Attention to Detail and High Standards

“Thank you for the professional treatment and approach to your responsibilities. Your judgment, attention to details and high standards were a significant contributor to the success of this transaction.”

Simon Bloch, seller

Unflagging Energy

“Thank you for all the hard work you put into selling our house. It was a long road in a difficult market but your advice and counsel were invaluable and your energy unflagging.”

Pam and Jay Hussey, sellers


Challenges Conquered Head-On

“Working with Elaine to sell our house was a great experience. She orchestrated a series of overlapping efforts that included arranging and following up on inspections, necessary repairs, cleaning and staging (even selecting the right paint!)–and did this all with an eye toward minimizing expenses. Further, even in a market which has proven trying for sellers, Elaine negotiated a deal over the asking price within 3 days of our going on the market. Whatever challenges arose, Elaine conquered them head-on. In short, Elaine certainly earned her commission.”

Amy and Bill Hsieh, sellers


Creativity and Competitive Spirit

“Elaine . . . Two of your most remarkable attributes from our perspective are your creativity and knowledge around the fine points of remodeling, and your fierce competitive spirit and art of influence during negotiation. . .Your “closing of the deal” was quite impressive. I would not want to be negotiating against you.”

Mathai and Anna Mammen, buyers and sellers


Perfect Balance: Professionalism and Personal Flair

“Elaine White strikes the perfect balance between professionalism and personal flair. From the moment we sat down to discuss whether we were ready to put our house on the market, to the moment we closed escrow, Elaine’s devotion, energy and experienced wisdom shined. We recommend Elaine without question. Our only criticism: She sold our house so fast we hadn’t even ordered our moving boxes! Simply put, she’s amazing!”

Ellen and Marvin Mouchawar, sellers


All the Skills of a Top Exec

“You’re super–very professional! I’m very impressed. I admire your work ethic, organization, preparedness, customer relationship focus, integrity–you have all the skills of a top exec!”                                     

Pat Pekary, seller 


Outside The Box Thinking

“Elaine’s thinking “outside the box” has given us great results as both sellers and buyers. As sellers, Elaine provided insightful advice to prepare our home for sale as well as tactical expertise in negotiating multiple offers, and we got a great price on our home. As buyers, Elaine’s creativity and negotiating skill got us our first choice house against 12 other bidders! We recommend her without reservation.”

Tom and Linda Buiocchi, sellers and buyers

The Gold Standard

“Elaine is a pleasure to lean on during the trying times of selling and buying a home. Her integrity and the attention to detail in her representation of my family allow me to, without hesitation, recommend Elaine as an exemplary professional. I consider the quality of her representation to be the “Gold Standard” in her profession. Elaine is someone whom I would recommend to my family and to my closest friends.” 

G. Marie Gomez, seller and buyer

No Longer Wandering in the Real Estate Market

“Recently, much to our amazement and delight, we moved into our first home. After devoting over one year to this effort in this hectic real estate market, we were finally successful. I do not consider it hyperbole to say that our success was due to our agent Elaine White . . . She assumed our role as home buyers and fully engaged the seller and her agent in what turned out to be a tough fight. There were times when we thought that Elaine was the buyer of our home as evidenced by her persistence in taking care of issues. Elaine worked tirelessly to ensure that the issues with the roof, chimney, furnace, etc. were resolved fairly. After what seemed to be endless inspections and re-inspections, the repairs were performed to our satisfaction. For us, as inexperienced first time buyers, we consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have been associated with Elaine as our agent. Without her assistance, it is likely that we would still be wandering in the real estate market or be in much less of a house.”

James I. Fann, M. D. and Andrea B. Hutchinson, M. D., buyers
