We were referred to Elin by my cousins who only had amazing things to say about her. Sure enough, everything they said was true! We had sold once before, but I feel like we learned so much more this time. Elin was so thorough in explaining every single step. She was so prepared and made everything too easy! To top it off, our daughter made a surprise visit a month early, right in the middle of open house planning. Elin didn't skip a beat, she was there at our house even when we could not be. Our house sold after only one weekend of open house and we could not be happier. If I was in the market to buy/sell another house tomorrow I would call Elin immediately!
Elin is wonderful! She helped us sell our home and buy another. She is on top of the whole process and never let anything slip buy. Elin also communicates with us often and responds to any of our questions quickly. She is reliable and professional. We highly recommend Elin!
Elin went over and above what one would expect from their realtor. She committed to getting the top dollar and communication was superb. Thank you Elin!!
Linda was great to work with. She is very responsive, does her research and gives her clients the personal attention you need when embarking on a home search. She will go above and beyond to be helpful and get you the information that you need to find a home and close the deal.
In 2009, we successfully bought our first home with Linda in San Francisco. Then, due to life changes, Linda & Elin helped us sell it and buy a new bigger home in Oakland in 2013. These two agents made the normally painful processes go so smoothly. They were great in all aspects: joining us on open houses if we wanted, helping us come up with the ideal price quotes, negotiating to make us feel we were getting the deals we wanted, and having a reliable set of contacts for assessments . Linda and Elin definitely made us feel that for each of our home purchases or home sell, they were there solely for our needs. We highly recommend their services and know we'll use them again in the future.
My husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing Linda both personally for many years and working with her professionally several times in the last five years. Linda successfully negotiated the sale of our home in 2009, which turned out to be an unusual and somewhat complicated transaction. Linda represented us as well as the buyers and my husband and I both felt that she was extremely fair, honest, and professional throughout the entire process. When we moved to a temporary rental property, Linda facilitated the entire transaction with the same care and enthusiasm that she had exhibited during the sale of our previous home. We had the pleasure of working with Linda again in the Fall of 2014 when we purchased our new home, and she made the ups and downs of the home-buying process much less stressful for us. Linda Williams is truly a pleasure to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable and professional but also very personable. We always felt like she really listened to us and paid attention to the details. Linda was always very accommodating and flexible when it came to working with our schedules. We can't say enough about her! It's always a pleasure to work with Linda and we would highly recommend her to anyone.
Elin and Linda were the best agents I have had a chance to work with. They were very knowledgable about the local market and helped us get a great deal. Their responsiveness was very impressive too. If I had a question or concern, they would get to it right away, even if it was really early in morning or late at night.
Elin helped my wife and I sell a home several years ago and just last year she helped us buy a home. She made both processes very easy. During our recent purchase, based on her years of working in the San Ramon area, she was able to provide more than just the usual information on homes we were looking at. For example she provided insights into the neighborhoods and their historical benefits and/or issues that could impact on the asking price as well as future resale. More importantly, she understood our needs and was always available to answer questions and provide advice. Without hesitation, we would rely on Elin for our next purchase/sale.
Linda and Elin are the most nicest and patient people on the planet. We were looking at homes for 9 months and they both were patient with us an helped us through the process no matter when we called or met. We trust them and could not be so lucky to have them help us find a home. The experience was like we were working with old friends!
I was planning on selling my house in the spring of 2013. I met with one potential real estate agent but didn't feel they had the local angle I hoped for. I was referred to Linda and Elin by a neighbor and we got together to talk about my house on April 21st. I immediately felt at ease - they lived in the neighborhoods, they knew everything about San Ramon. The neighborhood and the schools are very strong selling points.
We walked through my house and came up with a list of things to be changed. They prepared a detailed action plan with a goal of being ready for the Broker's Tour on May 30th. I was also nicely surprised when their estimate of the asking price was $50K over what I thought I could get. All repairs were completed on time with no delays. The Broker's Tour went off without a hitch and we had an offer over asking. I thought that the changes suggested by Linda and Elin really gave my house the 'pop' to sell immediately. My neighbors were pretty impressed too! Closing went very smoothly. No last minute surprises. I would absolutely recommend Linda and Elin. I had an excellent experience selling my house.
My experience with Elin was the best I could ever expect from a real estate agent. She was extremely professional with every step of us selling our home and buying a new home. Elin was also very patient with me and my husband and responded to our every request. She made a very stressful process much easier. I found her knowledge of the area, the processes of home inspections and contract processes outstanding. Also, her attention to detail was immaculate. I recommend her to everyone I know.
Linda and Elin are first-rate realtors and were wonderful to work with. I was impressed with their expert knowledge of the market and their professionalism. Linda and Elin are well connected, insightful and patient. They are excellent negotiators and our house sold quickly at a great price. I highly recommend Linda and Elin to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
In 2013, Linda helped us purchase a home. She was professional, knowledgeable and a great negotiator. We were able to purchase our home for 20k under the asking price due to her savvy knowledge of the market. She has an excellent reputation with her peers and community. I have referred several family members and friends who have received the same first class service. She is a terrific agent!
Simply put Linda is the best. I have been doing property transactions for over 20 years and she is the best I have worked with. She is professional, responsive, detail oriented and an excellent negotiator. If you work with Linda you will be glad.
We've had the good fortune of working with Elin in the past, and would highly recommend her for her complete commitment to her clients, whether in buying or selling. She comes through in ways that you would expect your best friends to, and in ways that are beyond what a realtor normally does.
We had closed escrow on our house, only to find that the owners had left the whole garage a wreck and impossible to use. We had plans to move all of our goods into that garage that night, but found that it was not going to be possible due to the damage. Immediately, Elin found a place for our belongings that we could use to store our stuff that had to be emptied from the truck! The sale had already closed, but she was still there helping us!
She also makes the process easier with her calm demeanor and professionalism. She understands her role in guiding new homeowners and experienced ones alike through a process that can be challenging, and she does an excellent job.
I have known the dynamic duo for over 10 years and they've handled many real estate transactions for myself and referred friends & family. They have always been the most informative, professional and willing to do those extra things that help you sell your house, get more money or negotiate the best real estate deal. I am happy to refer them to all I know and proud to call them my friends. They are awesome!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Linda was my realtor on the purchase of my first home. Being a first time homebuyer I was a lot of work. She was patient, understanding and very professional. She held my hand through the entire process and made sure I understood everything throughout the transaction. She was excellent in negotiation and insightful with regards to the other agents. I am grateful for all of her hard work and would highly recommend Linda and Elin!
Linda Williams is a fantastic real estate professional. Emphasis on the PRO! She has worked with my family on several real estate transactions, and upon my mother's recommendation I worked with her as well. She is knowledgeable, professional, and best of all, responsive. Even through dealing with a seller who was not willing to negotiate at all, she kept everything professional and kept negotiating on our behalf despite the difficulties she was faced with on the seller's side.
Could not be happier. The individual who recommended this team to me described them as ``the best`` - which i agree with. They adapted to my unique requirements, were patient with me as I learned and asked questions about the process, and gave recommendations that were based on making my numbers work. They made the experience very easy and even found me a great tenant within a week! My friends have worked with them and also had a pleasant and successful experience. I see no reason to use anyone else. They were a pleasure to work with and I expect to keep them busy again very soon.
I cannot put into words how thankful I am for Linda Williams for my home purchase. Linda is sincerely the BEST realtor I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Linda's knowledge of real estate, her professionalism and dedication is beyond reproach. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who is in need of an excellent realtor.
Elin is a professional in every sense of the word. From our original meeting to the final signing of papers she was always available, creative with suggestions, beyond helpful in securing services to paint, clean carpets, stage and SO much more. I look forward to my next real estate acquisition with her and I would recommend her above any Realtor I know.
We were looking for a house near the Danville and San Ramon area and came across Elin and Linda. The reason why I choose her instead all other agents was because instead of giving me a link to houses that were in the market and updates on the website, she put in time to give me a call and talked to me what I wanted and that was a plus. Once we decided we wanted to use her service I knew I didn't make a mistake using hiring her. Elin was always there when I had questions and always make time for me when I have unscheduled visit to the area to look at a house. Her network is large as she seem to know everyone there which I bet would help. She is very honest to let me know whether the price of the property is worth what we were going to offer and always have good suggestion on the price. She doesn't pressure in getting a house, if she knows the house is not our right fit she will move onto another house for us. She has been though a while for us as we thought we got a house in the first week meeting her but the owner just didn't accept the deal even when the house was on the market for 100 more days and she advice that we should pursue since we the owner was just very stubborn. We were however finally able to find a house after 4 months and Elin went into action right away to make sure our bid won which it did. After the owner accepted our bid, Elin was always on top of the loan procedure and make sure that everything was in order and the loan was completed in record time.
I will highly recommend using Elin and her team as they are real professional and their knowledge is vast. I think between her and Linda their knowledge of the area is close to 30 years.
I absolutely loved working with Elin in buying our first house. She was so patient with us throughout a long process. But, she kept by our side an we finally found the perfect house for us. Her energy and knowledge is unshakable. It makes the entire experience so much better and gives you, as the buyer, so much peace of mind. I've recommended Elin to all my friends and family. And I still turn to Elin for advice on all home related issues, questions and concerns. I trust & respect her completely.
We LOVED working with Linda! Very responsive, knowledgeable, WONDERFUL personality and she killed it when it came to our negotiations for selling and buying our homes! I only wish we could have made the process longer because we loved working with her so much. She made everything hassle and headache free and she was completely amazing when it came to dealing with a crazy lady expecting her second child (me) on a selling/buying timeline. She kept us informed of everything that was going on and when she took some well-deserved time off, her real estate partner, Elin, took such great care of us! Working with Elin was like working with Linda. The only difference between the two was their hair color! Two amazing women that we would love to work with again. We will truly miss working with both of them and hope that they are still working real estate when we need to put our next house on the market again!
Elin and Linda are simply the best! Very professional and knowledgable and we always felt like we were in good hands with them. They were always spot on with pricing and knew what a property was going to be worth. We will for sure be recommending them to anyone and everyone!
Elin knows her stuff! VERY knowledgeable and knows the ins and out of the current market. Cannot go wrong with Elin and Linda, I highly recommend! I believe if you are going to put you're trust into someone it is important to use someone who knows the current market and stays knowledgeable and informed to the current market forecast and I think this is where Elin really shines. Sometimes realtors I have worked with will use old information and not keep up with what is currently going on, this can create pitfalls and cause for costly mistakes. Elin stays up to date with current climate and stays informed, this is priceless.
