What People Say About Us
"I had the pleasure of working with Elena Talis for my first home purchase. As a business person, she was very knowledgeable about the market and helped me find the perfect condo in Palo Alto for the right price. On the personal side, Elena showed great sensitivity and discretion to help resolve a delicate matter when it came time to sell the condo. I can't recommend her highly enough, and I will definitely turn to her when I'm in the real estate market again!"
-Jordy, Palo Alto, CA
"They work very hard, and do not stop before they solve every problem that we encountered. And there were a few, so I was quite impressed with their persistency. Also very effective as a team, with effectively divided roles and complementary qualities. I honestly can't think of an area for improvement. My family and I are very lucky to have Elena and Michael represent us in this sale."
-Dusko, Palo Alto, CA
"Elena recently helped us buy our home in the Bay Area in a crazy sellers market, where all properties had multiple bids and were being sold for well over the asking price. In such a market, Elena not only helped us find the home of our dreams, but was also able to negotiate a great price for it - we actually ended up buying for below the asking price! Elena and her husband Michael worked as a great team, and were both extremely helpful throughout what could have been an agonizing experience. Together they were organized, thorough, and very prompt to respond to our many emails, phone calls and texts - any time of the day. Elena has an in depth knowledge of the real estate market in the Bay Area, particularly in the Peninsula and the South Bay. She also has a wide network of contacts with agents, mortgage brokers, and contractors to help her clients during and after the purchase of their home. Finally, since buying a home is as much an emotional decision as a monetary one, Elena is a great person to have on your side because her professional skills are balanced by an extremely supportive nature."
-Tarang and Vishal, Santa Clara, CA
"They (Elena and Michael) were very professional in all their endeavors. We enjoyed them as friends as well as our realtors. They did an amazing job for us! The best team ever!"
-Walter and Margaret, Palo Alto, CA
"I recently made the decision to sell my childhood home that had been in my family since 1965. I needed a realtor that appreciated the emotional impact of this decision as well as a superior understanding of the Palo Alto market and immediate neighborhood. I found this, times 2, in Elena and Michael Talis."
-Pat, Palo Alto, CA
"Elena and Michael found excellent contractors and suppliers who did great work at surprisingly reasonable cost, based on their experience and contacts, getting multiple bids, inspecting suppliers, negotiating, and in general doing whatever was necessary to keep the process moving. They supervised the entire process so that all I had to do was make the decisions and sign the checks. I was kept informed via phone conversations and photographs. I saw the finished product via the virtual tour, and it was amazing. The happy result of Elena and Michael’s hard work and local knowledge was a successful sale of the house at the listed price in a very slow market."
