Elizabeth was integral to the successful sale of our apartment. She advised at every stage of the process from staging to closing. We got significantly more than asking and I’m confident that it was in very large part due to Elizabeth’s knowledge of the market, expertise and finesse.

We had a complicated Covid home sale, and Elizabeth did a great job getting our house sold quickly and at great price. She was with us every step of the way with sound advice and great service. This was actually the 3rd time we worked with Elizabeth, and every time great.

Elizabeth is great, she makes a big decision easy. She takes the time to understand what your looking for which made the search efficient. I felt from the start she truly wanted me to end up in a home I'd love, and never felt I was being pushed in a direction outside of my zone.

Elizabeth helped us with the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current one, both within the Hoboken community. Her extensive knowledge of the market, diligence and strong relationships in the area produced positive and timely outcomes - all amid a global pandemic. I strongly recommend Elizabeth.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Elizabeth for years and worked with her for several months to purchase a home. She was an expert in her field, knowledgeable of the area and what the market value of homes were. She was patient and honest with her feedback on the homes we looked at. I would highly recommend her to any buyer.

Elizabeth was recommended to me by a family friend in 2012 when my boyfriend and I were looking to buy a condo in Hoboken. She spent hours with us going over the process as first-time homebuyers, and when we were ready to sell in 2019, she helped us through an incredibly difficult sale. Elizabeth knows the Hoboken and JC market incredibly well and has a very direct, informative style.

Elizabeth is terrific! When we moved to Hoboken 7 years ago, a family friend recommended Elizabeth to us and she was fantastic getting us situated in our new home. When it came time for us to relocate, Elizabeth was the first call to list our home for us. She helped with staging recommendations, color schemes, and her knowledge of the market is second to none. Our house was priced well and was sold quickly. I'd recommend her any and every time.

Elizabeth is the best. I was a first time buyer who did not understand anything about the process and little about the market place. Elizabeth took the time to show me different properties to understand exactly what I was looking for. Her patience and knowledge were invaluable. There were no surprises. It was a great experience.
