Elyse is an outstanding agent and person. I was serving as administrator for my brother’s estate, and I was dealing with the probate sale of his condo from across the country. Elyse always provided wise counsel about creating the ideal circumstances for selling the property, and she went above and beyond in doing essential groundwork for getting the property ready for sale (e.g., making appointments with contractors for various repairs and being at the apartment to meet with them). She made the process go very smoothly and did a great job with guiding me through the negotiation process. I cannot imagine having had a better agent.
Elyse helped me find and purchase a condo in Brentwood. Elyse is very active in the community, not only as an agent, but as a resident herself and being involved in many of the organizations in the community. Her local market expertise and understanding of the idiosyncrasies of the market put me in good hands throughout the process. Elyse listened and heard what I was looking for and supported me throughout the process. I couldn't have asked for a better agent! I highly recommend Elyse!!!
Elyse was a joy to work with. She's the type of person, who also happens to be an agent, that you enjoy spending time with. It doesn't hurt that she's knowledgeable, fun, extremely well prepared and get's the job done. Despite being in the heart of the holidays, the traffic for our house was incredible and we quickly received multiple offers resulting in a sale. I can think of no one more qualified to help us find our next home! Thanks Elyse!
Elyse was an absolute delight to work with! She represented us in the sale and ultimate lease of our Brentwood condo. She was resilient, always maintained a professional and positive demeanor, and navigated us through some hairy situations. We would recommend her without question for anyone looking to sell.
Elyse found a buyer for us (above asking price) only 3 days after our property was listed before we got a chance to have an Open House. She is the “Brentwood” specialist & represented us as “Sellers” and “Buyers” in previous transactions also. It’s always a pleasure working with her!
She was the one of the best realtor I have ever met in my life. She is highly knowledgeable about the Brentwood area and our condo. She had provided excellent professional advices at the critical and important situations. Thanks to her help and guidance, I could sell my home at the listing price in a month while abroad.
Elyse came highly recommended to me and I was not disappointed. She is professional, responsive, knowledgeable, available and she is extremely personable. I would highly recommend her to anyone of my friends or family members. Thank you Elyse!!
I interviewed several agents before settling on Elyse. She came prepared to our first meeting with all the sales data I could possible want for my neighborhood in order for me to decide how much to list my condo for. She was always professional, her marketing materials were excellent and her skills as an agent top notch. She attended all open houses herself and did not delegate this duty to an assistant. She followed up on every potential buyer and had multiple offers for me within a week of my unit going on the market. I felt well represented and thanks to her, my unit sold for above asking price. If you want a dedicated agent who is not just talk, call her for an interview. You will not be disappointed. She's a unique agent: one who is successful but has got gotten complacent.
It has been a great pleasure working with Elyse. She found us an amazing condo on Westside of Los Angeles. She is lovely, fast, responsive, knowledgeable and transparent. Not only does she provide us with many choices that fits our requirements, she highlights the pros and cons of each property. When it comes to making offers, she is strategic and resourceful. She is a partner that you can trust and reply, someone who goes above and beyond to make things happen. We are moving into our dream home and without her this would not have happened. Thank you Elyse and you are definitely invited to our house party!!
Elyse did a fantastic job selling our condo in Brentwood. She is highly knowledgeable about the area. She went above and beyond to be on site for all showings ensuring that prospective buyers could ask and receive immediate answers to all questions. Elyse also provided detailed and timely updates on all showings and made the closing processes a breeze. She is top notch and if you are looking for a high-quality agent look no further!
When we were getting ready to sell our Brentwood (Los Angeles) Condo last spring we interviewed 3 realtors. Elyse Arbour won our trust and got the listing hands down. Her enthusiasm and energy to get our place sold was key. And her input on how to market and how to declutter to make our space even more desirable was fantastic. We got 45K over asking price. Elyse Arbour is the best of the best!
Elyse represented us in our search for a condo on the Brentwood area. She did several things that made her a valuable asset in our search. 1) She never pressured us to make a decision or change our mind about what we wanted. She showed great patience while we viewed several properties over a period of a few months. 2) She only took us to condos that met our wants. 3) She was extremely knowledgable of the pros and cons of each condo building we viewed. 4) She was very forthcoming when she thought sellers or their agents were trying to take advantage of us. She was by far the best agent we have felt with.
I have had the pleasure to both purchases a condo, and then 13 years later, sell the same condo while being represented by Elyse. Both experiences have been phenomenal. When buying, Elyse was able to convince the sellers that I was the "right buyer," even though I was younger and had a smaller down payment than other prospective purchasers (there were multiple offers). When selling the same condo, we were able to top the market as the highest priced sale ever achieved in the building. I don't need to tell you any more. Those two transactions speak for themselves.
I have worked with Elyse for the last 15 years, She is the most honest, respectful and professional agent I know working in the west side. She has closed several real estate transactions both in rentals as well as purchases and every deal has good through better than its previous one.
When selling our home I couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one I had with Elyse Arbour. Within 2 weeks of our home going on the market we had multiple offers that went above the asking price. I never had to worry about anything because Elyse took care of every detail. I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
The true measure of a professional isn’t how the person handles a simple or trouble-free process. Much as we’d all have preferred that kind of journey, it wasn’t to be. You showed persistence, determination, creativity and patience in continuing to pursue this outcome through all of the seemingly endless slings and arrows. Thank you for being a true professional, and a joy to work with
Hi Elyse, I’m sure you know that the unit next door to me is on the market. I went over to the open house today and let me just say YOU are the BEST. This realtor does not have all the beautiful flyers and slick pictures that you do and did not have the homeowner fine tune the unit the way you advised me. You are an exceptional realtor
Elyse Arbour is fantastic. The selling of our home of 16 years was an emotional and stressful endeavor; without Elyse we could not have made it through the process. The qualities we most highly value were her honest, sense of fairness and straight-shooting. We are so happy to have her as our broker and feel that no one else could have, would have, gotten us through this experience better.
Elyse provided us with a superb professional and timely service. She was knowledgeable, kind, personal and honest. We recommend her services without any reservation and will be happy to serve as a reference for future clients to the excellence of the service quality.
I live out of state and when my brother died in 2012 I was looking for a realtor and was given Elyse’s name by my brother’s neighbor. I cannot tell you the confidence that the Elyse/Anita team has instilled in us with their professional attention to details and explanations of what they had done and what was still to be done. I cannot tell you how vital it is for someone to KNOW that their business is being handled with both confidence and professionalism.
Elyse was AMAZING!! The first time I met both agents Elyse was the one who had a strategic plan to sell the house quickly. Elyse told me agents and prospective buyers would know we were serious about selling and would come in with their top dollars. Low and behold things went exactly as Elyse had said. The house sold within 2 weeks of the first open house and for $350,000 over the asking price. If not for Elyse I don’t believe we would have ever achieved this end result. I was so impressed with Elyse’s dynamic energy to get the job done in my best interest. If you’re selling a home and want to see results hire Elyse. She will make whatever transition you are going through” as effortless as possible.
You have made selling a home feel seamless. Seriously, I know it has been enormously helpful to both of us to have a team we could work with around our schedules and practically around the clock. You ladies are efficient!
My favorite agent in the whole world!!!! I just want you to know how very grateful I am for the fantastic job you did for us with the sale of my mom’s house. You took care of everything so efficiently and timely and with such professionalism. As you know I was having a real hard time dealing with the sale of the house, but you helped me get through it and I so appreciate that
I want to thank you for being such a wonderful, EXEPTIONAL! Agent to work with. Every single day I thank my lucky star that we went with you. You found the right buyer for our property, you looked out for our interests every step of the way.To all your potential clients, I have just one thing to say: Hire Elyse! You won’t be disappointed. There are a lot of agents out there but Elyse is one of a kind when it comes to her work ethic, her positive attitude, excellent marketing and her attention to detail. I am so grateful to you, Elyse for all your hard work!
Without Elyse, we would NEVER have gotten our Brentwood home. We’d been searching and searching for a home in a very specific neighborhood. It took time and a lot of work, but eventually she did it. While she can’t control inventory or the market, I can’t imagine there’s an agent who will work harder.
We first met Elyse Arbour when we asked her to represent us in 2012 on the sale of our deceased cousin’s home in Brentwood, California. Despite the fact that we were unfamiliar with Elyse, we initially contacted her based on our cousin’s request that upon her death, we use Elyse to sell the property. While we first approached the situation with a natural trepidation, any concerns we had quickly disappeared after our first meeting with Elyse. During that initial meeting, Elyse took the time to gain a clear understanding of our circumstances and to listen to our perspective regarding the planned sale of the house. Elyse then offered her view of the situation and diplomatically walked us through her suggestions as to how we should proceed. Elyse took the time to make sure we were comfortable with the suggested approach. Over the next few months, Elyse and her incredible staff worked very closely with us. Elyse never ceased to amaze us as she tirelessly marketed the property and, on a daily basis, kept us up-to-date on any developments. Without a doubt, Elyse’s hard work and guidance played a major role in ensuring the successful sale of our house. When attempting to describe Elyse, certain words come to mind…knowledgeable, dependable, tenacious, thorough, patient, caring and a consummate professional with high integrity. It was truly a pleasure working with Elyse Arbour and, based upon our experience, I would recommend her without reservation to anyone trying to find the “right” realtor.
I would like to express our thanks to you. Your knowledge, accurate assessment, abilities and most importantly genuine and sincere manner made our transaction easy and smooth. I have confidence that we have the best results possible with you
We would like to commend Elyse Arbour. At all times, Elyse was the delightful combination of professionalism, charm enthusiasm and caring. We have come to consider her out friend
It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. We would, without a doubt, recommend you to anyone that we know who needs the services of a real estate agent. I have been involved in over 300 sales and purchases over the years and feel that the level of service you provided to us was above and beyond. You are the best agent there is in the area
You are one of the hardest working real estate agents we’ve ever known and your diligence, professionalism and resources really impressed us. You were always ready, willing and able to assist us in all aspects of our sale
