From our first meeting to closing day, Elliott gave us confidence and showed us that he cared.
My husband and I moved to Richmond from D.C. with our 3month old daughter, and after renting for a year, we were ready to buy our first home. We asked around and got Elliott’s name from a good friend. We asked Elliott to meet us at a house in which we were interested so we could determine if we wanted to choose him as our realtor. He immediately made us feel at ease and confident in assessing whether the house fit our criteria. Toward the end of the showing, we walked out back and he said he’d check out the crawl space for us. We expected he’d just peak his head in, but he crawled inside! That gesture showed us that Elliott was committed and that he would go the extra mile to help us find our home. Over the next several months, and who knows how many house showings, Elliott stuck with us. He was reassuring when we felt like we’d never find a home. He kept a lookout for us in the market. So when we got busy and couldn’t keep up with the new listings, we weren’t worried we’d miss “the one.” One of our favorite things about Elliott is that he has vision. We were looking for a minor fixer-upper, so when we’d step into a house that didn’t hit everything on our wish list he’d come up with ideas and brain storm with us on how we could make it better. On the flip side, he was honest when he didn’t think the house we were viewing was a good fit. Through our interactions with Elliott, it was obvious that he was very knowledgeable in the Richmond market. He was able to tell us what future buyers might think of each house we considered and connect us with other service providers he trusts. He was also readily available - he even came to all the during-purchase events (like the home inspection - which very few realtors do!). When we finally found our home, Elliott helped us through each step of the process. He negotiated on our be half to get us a great purchase price. He checked in with us to make sure to answer any of our questions. He told us what we could expect as far as a timeline and tasks we needed to complete. He gave us advice. And he reached out after all was said and done to see how we were doing and how we were liking our new home. From our first meeting to closing day, Elliott gave us confidence and showed us that he cared. For first-time homebuyers, this was a huge blessing. We are iincredibly grateful to Elliott and his team for helping us find our home.
