I met Elise at an open house while our family was considering getting serious about moving from our suburban home into the city. Almost immediately I was struck by her knowledge of the market, her calm but direct manner and her very understated approach. We listed our home with Elise and immediately there was a noticeable difference from the other agents we had considered. She put a plan into place that was based on our specific family dynamic and situation and ensured that our needs were front and centre. She committed to selling the house in a certain time frame and didn't not waiver from that. We successfully sold our house over asking and immediately engaged her on finding us our city home. Elise was focused on finding us the right house at the right price which fit our specific needs. Her persistence and knowledge came through again, as no later than a week after selling, we closed a deal on a home which was 100% perfect in every aspect. We attribute her success to having a very deep understanding of our family dynamic (especially at different stages), listening and comprehending well what we needed and wanted, having incredible acumen in not only the market but in construction and building and finally, being a strong yet fair negotiator. Should we decide to ever move again, I would not choose anyone other than Elise Stern. We highly recommend her.

 



Many thanks for your firm and positive guidance through my recent real estate sale and purchase cycle. Although I researched the real estate market in the last year or so and I was able to make fast decisions, your help during the cycle critical times is very much appreciated. You always answered my questions with utmost clarity and most importantly you refrained from making probabilistic speculations that would have confused the process.

Prior to contacting you I searched the services other real estate agents had to offer. What made me select to work with you is the fact that at our first meeting you directly addressed all the real estate valuation questions I had in mind without me bringing up details on this specific matter. The Toronto real estate market is complex and is subject to influences from many directions. You have a good understanding of this market’s dynamics. I would gladly provide a recommendation for your real estate services. - Ady Solomon

Elise worked with my sister and I in the sale ofour mother'shome in North York.The housewent on the market at noon and sold that sameevening with multiple offerswhich resulted in a saleabove the listing price due to Elise's professional and personal nature. During a hectic period, she treated everyone with courtesy while ensuring our best interests were looked after. I would sincerely recommend Elise to potential buyers and sellers. - Anne B

 



Elise helped us buy our first house, a two -bedroom bungalow, six years ago when we were newlyweds. With a three-year-old and a toddler sharing the second bedroom, we were struggling mightily with the decision to move or renovate.

Elise calls us up one day saying that she is on vacation, but she has someone interested in buying our house and she can get us a good price for it - are we interested in selling? Skeptical, we go and see two open houses that weekend. One of them is exciting - a space upgrade in a great area - but it has an offer date in five days.

We make a deal with Elise: "If you can sell our house for the price we want before the offer date, you can represent us for the purchase as well." Elise responds that she's coming back to Toronto the next day and she's up for the challenge. Five days later, without ever having put our house on the market, we had sold and bought a house. The purchase and sale took place within 24 frantic hours of each other. We are happy with both the amount we got for our old house and the amount we paid for our new one.

 



Two months ago we were paralysed by indecision regarding our house. Now we are living in a bigger house in a fantastic neighborhood. Thank you Elise for helping us pull it off! - Aaron and Justine
