* "Elaine is incredibly personable, sharp and knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate industry. As a trusted real estate advisor, known for her business acumen, humor and protective concern, she skillfully handled any unexpected issue that arose during our complex transaction, which involved myself and two other investor/partners. Elaine is laser focused on her client's best interests, and exceeded every expectation we thought a real estate professional would be. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is absolutely the best!" -- C. Vega, Buyer

*  "Elaine is not the first real estate broker I have used, but she will be the one I use from now on. She is not only pleasant, she knows what she is doing. Any question you ask, she either has the answer or gets immediately. I have had experience with her where she was working late into the night to get things done and to answer questions. Bottom line, if you want someone who knows what to do and has your best interest as her main objective, then you are going to contact Elaine."  -- Joel Friedman, President & CEO, Mikawaya

* "Elaine was our buyer's broker for our 7th and most complex residential real estate transaction. Throughout our 10 month home search, exacerbated by being geographically separated, Elaine was superb in every step of the process. Her expert knowledge of South Bay neighborhoods, impeccable integrity, professionalism, and warm personality were a perfect match. Her win-win approach got us into our perfect new home and closed a great deal despite a few end-game pitfalls. She is without a doubt the best Realtor we have ever had the pleasure to work with." -- Henry & Stephanie Reed, Buyers

* "As a widowed parent going through a major life change, Elaine made the complex task of selling one house in the Pacific Palisades and purchasing a new home in Palos Verdes extraordinarily easy. In fact, the entire transaction from sale of the old house to moving into our new home was accomplished in just 45 days! Elaine relieved me of both the anxiety and logistics involved in coordinating both high-end sale and move. She also provided invaluable assistance in identifying schools and other critical resources in our new neighborhood. Her ability to coordinate each stage of these multiple transactions with the various principals involved -- and to guide me through what is normally a stressful process -- with such grace, insight and intelligence -- makes it easy for me to recommend Elaine to others. And yes...we really love the house she found us!!!" -- Mark Fine, Seller and Buyer

*  “I had the great pleasure of working with Elaine as my Buyers Broker and cannot recommend her highly enough. What separates her from other agents is her DEPTH OF INTELLIGENCE about the real estate industry, her genuinely warm personality, trusted counsel, high integrity, exceptional negotiation skills, creativity and impressive conflict resolution abilities. Besides her professional acumen, Elaine's personal touch and protective nature made me know she had my best interests at the forefront, which was always reassuring. My "velvet pit bull" is the only real estate professional I will ever use and I recommend her with deep appreciation and respect.” -- Memvy Aquino, Buyer

"I moved in with my elderly mother after my father passed away.  Our biggest task: Selling her 3,000 square foot house and moving into a home half the size.  In stepped Elaine Mallon, who offers a special sensitivity and guidance to 'women in transition.'  She was our listing and buyer’s agent and we couldn’t have been luckier to find her.  I had never been through the process of selling and buying real estate before and she held our hands and guided us through the entire process.  My mother now has a comfortable nest egg to retire on and it was all due to our amazingly incredible real estate agent, Elaine Mallon.  She’s not only caring, energetic, vivacious, uplifting, and super-duper professional, her contagious sense of humor and warm personality made us feel like we had a true friend on our side." -- Natasha and Elizabeth Nebelsky, Seller & Buyer

“I want to provide this positive testimonial regarding my home selling experience with my AWESOME Real Estate Broker, Elaine Mallon. I was impressed by Elaine’s skills and knowledge. She successfully conducted an open house within a week of us signing a contract to sell our investment property in the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The property was prepped and sold quickly, and we had multiple offers on the first and only open house she did, which drove the price higher than the asking price. Elaine was very professional and friendly during the entire process, which helped to ease my anxiety and reduce stress. It was important for us to have a reliable and honest agent because we were conducting business from the East Coast. Elaine kept open and continuous communication with us and she provided updates at all times. Her initiative, creativity and energy were incredible. Even though we never met in person, it was a pleasure to work with Elaine Mallon and I would highly recommend her to anybody as their trusted Real Estate Professional.” -- Gladys Bonilla, Seller

"Elaine recently represented me and my fiancee as our Buyer's Agent in purchasing our new home in Pasadena ($1,750,000).   She really went the extra mile, negotiating discounts, solving problems, such as locating contractors to replace the floors and to move us from Manhattan Beach.   I never felt pushed, nor did I have any doubts about who she worked for -- us, NOT the seller.  At every juncture, it was clear that her overriding goal was to help ensure that we were happy and that we were getting the best deal possible.  She was flexible and when we switched gears mid-stream, so did she without any issues.  I highly recommend her!!!" -- Lauren Roberts, Vice President/Senior Wealth Advisor, CB&T Wealth Management/Contango Capital Advisors
