"I first met Elvia Gonzalez at an open house in Mission Viejo. She was hosting the event and approached my family and I with a smile and welcomed us. She was gracious and let my kids take some snacks and drinks from her tray. She asked questions about our situation but was not overly intrusive. I warmed up to her immediately and took her card. My next meeting with her was great. I could tell she is a good listener because she addressed many of my issues and concerns about finding the right house, getting the best loan and putting our then current property on the market, especially as it was the end of summer and the housing market was cooling off. At the end of our meeting, I was confident with her abilities and experience and knew she was the one to help us sell our house for the best price and find us the house of our dreams.
From that moment on, she went to work! I met her husband Eddie and her daughter Haley. We had my in-laws staying with us for the summer but she was very sensitive and considerate with their schedule for open houses and vendors coming and going to get the house ready. She had excellent taste and suggestions that made our house better for the showings and we felt secure knowing that she had very good control on who came to the house and when. She was a good communicator and we touched base several times a day. Her team was hard at work, sometimes doing consecutive open houses five days in a row! By the second week of putting our house on the market, we had multiple offers.We opened escrow soon after (offer being at full asking price, no less!) and all the while, we were still looking for our dream home. In that regards, she also made herself available in the evenings during the weekdays and all day on weekends, all the while working around my schedule. I admire her a lot for her drive and could tell she was passionate with what she does, and rightfully so as she was so competent and knowledgeable in her chosen industry. "
"Elvia and Eddie are a power couple that really puts 110% effort out there to assist you in finding a home and sealing the deal. They truly make it easier and take the pressure off the idea of buying a home.
Last December, I helped my Fiance's parents throughout the process of a home purchase in Mission Viejo. We met Elvia and Eddie through an open house, and they were there for us every step of the way. We attempted the impossible--closing escrow within 14 days, including Christmas and New Years in-between. Even when Elvia and Eddie were on vacation in Big Bear, they were in touch with us hourly to ensure the deal got done. When things got tough--deadlines, requirements, negotiations, and paperwork--Elvia and Eddie stepped in to assist us in ways that real estate agents aren't expected to do. They really know what they're doing in every facet of this industry because they've done it for decades. Every step of the way, their reassurance, support, and effort really proved to be extremely valuable. If you need a real estate agent that will fight for you until the last round, these are your people. Not only was this a pleasant transaction and great experience, but also a new ongoing relationship as Elvia and Eddie are truly human and caring about their clients. They felt like family throughout the entire process, and we're happy to have them as good friends and resources in the future! I can't speak highly enough of these two--they're some of the kindest people I've ever met. It was such a pleasure working with them on a big life-event such as this."
