Elena's clients are SOLD on the results she has helped them to achieve!

 
The process of buying a home is one of the biggest financial and personal decisions one can make. We have found the home of our dreams because of your unceasing support, obvious expertise, continuous availability, and reliable advocacy. We appreciate how thoughtfully you guided us every step of the way. I now understand the value of working with a competent realtor – by witnessing your astute attention to our likes and dislikes in a home, assisting us with the negotiation process, and shepherding us through the lengthy escrow process. You helped us anticipate the hurdles every step of the way. Your professional approach helped smoothed  the ups and downs along that path.  What remains for us is a beautiful home to enjoy for a lifetime. How about that!
With thanks and gratitude - Rich and Cathy Payne


Working with Elena and John helped put us at ease concerning all the details surrounding our sale and move to the East Coast. Their experience and local knowledge helped to give us a clear picture of the market for our home so we could price it to sell in our timeframe. Their detailed analysis, planning and handholding at the right times were invaluable not only to selling our home, but in staying sane through a stressful process! In addition, Elena's deep marketing skills were enormously helpful inpresenting our home in the best possible light for potential buyers. We recommend Elena and John to anyone who we know is thinking or selling thier home. - Mark Steele

Elena, Carol and I want to thank you for making our home buying experience a positive experience. We found your dedication and professional approach to real estate a refreshing change relative to the normal real estate agents approach. Having bought and sold twelve houses, we have experienced all levels of real estate agent competency. We can honestly say that your handling of our transaction, in the face of sometimes difficult circumstances, was not only the most professional, but also the most enjoyable. - Ron and Carol Olson
  
Elena:  we are so pleased with the way this transaction has proceeded.  You did a fantastic job of finding a buyer so quickly and at a great price.  And, keeping us all informed during the paperwork challenges. Thanks for looking out for our interests.  You most definitely earned your commission.  Big time. We now know what to expect from an excellent agent. Richard and Kristi Steinberg

She is the best! - Diana Hoppe, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Thanks for all the help.
Robert & Chris Mills

I have sold and bought homes this year and so I have experienced both sides of the transaction and know there is a lot more to a successful real estate transaction than simply processing forms. Elena, you were extremely thorough, organized and punctual in managing every detail. You kept me informed throughout the process. Most importantly, you were my advocate and ensured my interests came first and foremost, even if it meant more work for you. Great job! -Portia S.
 
 Dear Elena, Selling our vacant home, in the challenging real estate market of 2008, was a daunting proposition, but your exemplary professionalism made it all happen for us! You went way beyond our expectations, and we are so thankful for your help with repairs, upkeep, and seeing that everything was well taken care of in our empty home while we were living 2000 miles away. Your marketing ideas helped sell our home and we were so appreciative of your constant updates on potential buyers and the present market conditions in the area. The exceptional personal service you provided should be commended and you can definitely count on our recommendations for your service to anyone who wants their home SOLD! -Lura and Donald Wagner
 
Thank you for your professional help and personal interest in seeing us through the listing and sale of our home in the adverse 2006 market. Your advice based on realistic and up to date analyses of the changing market resulted in the sale of our Leucadia home in a time frame and at a price with which we were very satisfied. We were impressed by your willingness and ability to keep our home highlighted through ads, open houses and realtor presentations-and were surprised at how painless you made the process for us!    - Roger and Sarah Baldwin 
 
Elena was incredibly efficient, precise and pleasant to work with on our recent home purchase. Her intimate knowledge of the coastal communities, combined with her web-based tools, made the search process highly effective. She took the time to fully understand what we were looking for, found it and skillfully negotiated on our behalf with the sellers (since this was a FSBO). Throughout the escrow and closing she followed through on every little detail and never tired of explaining things to us. We love our new house and are grateful to Elena for making this a fantastic and flawless experience! -Reza Kasnavi and Fiona Kaper
 
"Elena "E.T." Thompson is the ideal choice to represent you in the sale of your home. Her marketing and communication skills are unmatched in her field."  -Brian and Lindy Wynn
 
Elena, thank you for making our home-selling process so easy, enjoyable, and profitable. We appreciate your local market knowledge and are grateful for your active, targeted marketing campaign to bring in qualified prospective buyers. You were extremely professional from start to finish and always kept us well-informed about the dynamic real estate market. Escrow coordination was a breeze because of everything you did to manage inspectors, repairmen, and the buyers' expectations. We are very comfortable in recommending you to any of our friends or colleagues with San Diego real estate needs. Thank you for all that you have done for us! -Pelin and Brian Wood
 
Thank you so much for your professionalism and attentiveness with my recent transition moving to New Jersey. I have not had a more aggressive, personal and wonderful Realtor in all of my relocations.  If this is the level of service I can expect from a Realtor, I will always use Elena Thompson!  I will also certainly recommend you to all I know. Thanks again for going above and beyond in helping me sell my home. -Angela T.
 
Professional, detailed and extraordinary are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of the job that Elena did in selling our home. She was truly awesome. She met everyone one of our individual needs and sold our home in a timely manner. She not only met our needs for excellence, but went way beyond the call of duty. -Cassie and Ryan Gold 
 
Thanks again Elena. You went above and beyond what ought to be expected from a Realtor! You made any problem that arose seem easily fixable and indeed they were! Your marketing, advertising and CD were great exposure and thanks to that, the property sold in a remarkably short time. The whole experience was painless and I'll recommend you to anyone I know needing a good Realtor in North County. -Dr. Robert Jaspan
 
Good job Elena! Thank you very much for your assistance with the purchase of our new home in Carlsbad.  We are looking very forward to becoming part of this beautiful community and you made it happen! It was a real pleasure working with you and we would highly recommend you to anyone who is seeking quality, efficient service.  You promptly our transaction in a very professional manner and always kept us informed.  This was very important because we always knew where we stood throughout the transaction. - The Menchacas
 
We are glad we get to work together with you again Elena (Bought, sold, buy again).  We really appreciate your professionalism and expertise and your willingness to go the extra 50 miles for us!  It also helps that you have such a winning personality. -The Smith Family
 
 I knew that choosing you as my Realtor would lead to terrific results. I had to sell my home at a time when the market was not great and I am happy to say that my experience working with you was phenomenal. The effort was well organized and everything was explained very clearly making the whole process very understandable (and for this Italian, this matters!) I loved to discover that behind a good business person (E.T.), there is also this warm solar person who is pro-active, determined and knows when it is time to push. -Umberto Bossi
 
On behalf of my husband and I, I just want to thank you for referring us to Elena Thompson for our house hunting and also provide you with some feedback on her performance. She has been absolutely wonderful to work with. From our dealings, we can comfortably say that she is experienced, ethical, trustworthy, and fun to work with. She was always conscience of our price constraints/goals when she showed us properties. Once we identified the property, she was prompt at getting us the relevant information so that we could make a purchase decision. During the offer process, she is very insightful and made suggestions on how we could make our offer standout from others in this hot market (e.g., larger deposit) - this proved to be the deciding factor in our offer being accepted. While in escrow, she kept us updated and addressed our concerns via talking to the right people or getting us the appropriate info/documents. It was very clear to us that throughout the whole process, her goal was to help us find a place that we truly liked as opposed to her wanting to do as little work as possible and rush us into making a purchase. Again, we were delighted to have worked with her this time and will not hesitate to use her again should the need arise. What can I say, we just love her!!!!!!   -M/M Holo
 
 Thank you just does not say enough for all of the work you have done for us in the sale of our home Elena. You made the process painless. I never had to worry about the whole process because you made the details and any difficulties transparent to us!  Thanks for much for your help selling our home and for that matter, on the purchase of our new home as well! You are phenomenal! -The Seversons
 
You exceeded our expectations with the sale of our home and assistance with our new purchase. Your pro-active communication and regular updates were great, and your knowledge of North County coastal area and professionalism go unmatched! -The Ebbers
 
Having bought and sold several homes over the years, we feel the treatment that we received was of the highest quality yet! -The Stanleys
 
Thank you for doing such a good job selling our home. We couldn't be happier than to have you handling our sale- its been such a relief having this part of the equation squared away. We feel like we are in good hands, and when we sell our next house we hope you can take it on as well. We'll refer any worthy friends we have to you for sure. -The Huttons
 
"Buying your first home should be fun and exciting!" Being up to my eyeballs in real estate hell at the time, I just couldn’t fully embrace this concept. But my friend, a former real estate agent, seemed so cheerful and enthusiastic about the process, I began to suspect that possibly it was true, and that I was just in the wrong hands. Eventually, I realized that your agent holds your entire experience in her hands - I decided to make a switch, and I asked my friend for a referral. That was the single best thing I could have done. It led me to Elena Thompson. From then on, buying my first home was a breeze. And yes, it was even fun and exciting! From start to finish, Elena was proactive, positive, tireless, expertly informed, and plainly: a joy and a relief. She constantly impressed me with the details she not only caught, but followed up on, and fixed. -M. Berson.
Elena, you are a consummate professional and I am 100% satisfied with the service you provided me during my home purchase/relocation to the area! -C. Handel
 
 We wanted to thank you again Elena for all of your help in finding our first dream home.  We absolutely love it here! You definitely made our first home-buying experience great. Everything seemed to work smoothly and timely.  Everything went well and we have to thank you for the positive experience Elena.  -M/M Sellers
 
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am in my house. You knew just what I wanted and found the perfect home for me! Thanks for all your special attention and as Erika says, "Elena makes you feel like you're her only client!" That's quite a feat when you're as busy as you are, Elena. You always responded to my calls in a timely manner and I appreciated your well-rounded service. Thanks for being a great friend AND a great realtor. If I ever have property needs in the future, you'll be the first one I'll call. Thanks again for everything. -S. Union
 
 My first impression of Elena was that she is extremely organized, prompt, knows how to read people and most importantly knows the North County coastal area in San Diego unbelievably well.  When it came time for me to buy a condo/home, E.T. was an easy choice to use as a realtor.  Elena understands that the key to both her and customer's success is knowing and understanding their needs and preferences.  She asks a lot of questions and spends time getting to know you and your likes/dislikes.  She involves you in the process from the beginning....if you're a first time buyer, she will give you honest feedback on what you can/can't afford as well as educate you on the process as well as the do's and don’ts of home buying.  Being extremely busy in my job at the time when E.T. and I were home shopping, it was comforting to know that she was at the wheel and driving the process (I didn't know E.T. could drive!).  At the same time, she wasn't afraid to let me know when something needed to be done on my end.  Although extremely busy herself, she was in constant touch and walked me through everything, step-by-step.  She also wasn't afraid to give homework assignments (listings for drive by's, reading material) as well, which was great because it got me up to speed in the basics of home buying as well as providing me the opportunity to learn more about my own likes/dislikes.  The drive-by's we did were well thought out and got progressively better each time out as she fine tuned our properties to fit my developing tastes. I firmly believe she is to credit in the fact that I have never second guessed my decision in that she did an outstanding job as my agent. -M. James
 
I am so excited about my new little home Elena! It seems like some invisible string led me to your open house on Chinquapin. If it were not for you and Helen, I would probably still be looking. I have been reading a book called "There are no Accidents". And I believe it now. Thank You... Thank You again for all of your help. I will definitely keep in touch. -M. Grabo
 
In January 2003 we decided to embark on a search for a new home in San Diego area and contacted Elena Thompson through a referral from a work colleague. We were living in Bucks County, Philadelphia at the time and set up a vigorous telephonic & e-mail correspondence with Elena. Elena was most accommodating during this early contact asking penetrating questions regarding our knowledge of the San Diego area, what our preferences might be for a home and the "right" neighborhood etc. Elena immediately profiled a number of homes to meet the intended specifications and set up delivery of listings we could visit via the Web. This proved to be a significant step in the process because we were able to give her detailed feedback over a period of time and she winnowed the candidates down. During the entire time Elena was patient, accommodating, proactive and assertive. She always had our interests at heart and never once pushed her own agenda with the result that we are extremely happy with our purchase. Elena’s contact did not only extend to the search process but she covered a lot of extra ground regarding house inspection, recommendation of financing, scouting the neighborhood for suppliers that we would need and post-closure has been very warm and personable. Rosemary and I would recommend Elena without hesitation as being a most professional and personable realtor and it has been a real pleasure dealing with her. -M/M Webster
 
Elena has provided us with outstanding service through 3 real estate transactions, including the purchase and sale of our first home. Her thorough knowledge coupled with patience and dependability was just what we needed.  And she continued to exceed our expectations as she helped us find and purchase our wonderful home in the troubled waters of the current 2007-2008 real estate market.  The entire process, from just starting to search to the first champagne toast in our new home, took over 7 months and Elena continually pushed to get us the best house at the best price, while also making it seem almost effortless.  She continues to improve her real estate business through careful study of current research and trends as well as adopting new technology to improve her client's experience.  Elena always surprises us with her willingness to go above and beyond her duties as a real estate agent and has provided us with valuable advice on income from rental property, landlord/tenant relationships, and real estate documentation, pulling from her personal experience as a real estate investor. And, Elena always provides all this with a warm, friendly attitude and a smile! -Kyle and Matt Barre
