Elaine King and I go back a little over 8 years. She helped me find a house to rent when I originally moved to Brentwood, CA. She was patient and knew this was going to be a big move for me after living in Concord since 1979. I have learned to love Brentwood and am now a home owner, through Elaine’s knowledge, diligence and with having so much real estate experience.

To get this out of the gate right up front, I highly recommend Elaine as a superb Real Estate professional. My dad's unexpected passing and the prospect of having to put things in order and ready for selling his house, was challenging for me to say the least. She helped put my mind at ease and took care of all the details efficiently, effectively and always in a kind and friendly manner. Her expert advice helped me through a very difficult time and guided my decision making right up to a successful sale. Elaine, thank you!

We were relocating to the outer East Bay area from the Midwest, and connected with Ms. King (Elaine) via her fine website and an open house in the excellent Summerset 55+ community of Brentwood. From the start, she was very understanding of the stress and hassle associated with a cross-country move, and very supportive of us "taking our time" to find just the right house in the right setting. She expertly guided us thru the entire house-buying process and paperwork in California, and provided compassionate counsel the whole time. We would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone interested in a real estate purchase in the wonderful Summerset 55+ community.

Elaine did an outstanding job and I would definitely recommend her for all your real estate needs! She helped us buy our house, managed to get us a good price and was with us every step of the way. Then, when we decided to sell, we chose Elaine to be our agent. She recommended a great price, got us a reasonable offer in short order and was with us every step of the way through closing. You absolutely cannot go wrong using Elaine!

Elaine is wonderful. A good listener, and great at communicating. She returned emails promptly and answered any concerns we had in the buying process.
We relocated from a home we had lived in for 45 years. Her attention to detail was sensitive, and she was quite patient with us.
Thank you Elaine for helping with the process!! WE LOVE OUR NEW HOME!!

Home Seller
If you are looking at selling a home Elaine King is the right person. I was downsizing from my home and knew my neighbor Elaine was a real estate agent and someone I could trust.

She was fantastic to work with from figuring out when to list and pricing to updates on people who viewed my house. I had moved before the sale of my home and Elaine kept me updated the whole time. Her emails were informative with feedback from those who viewed the house to how the process was going.

My house got the offer I took when Elaine had gone on vacation but that didn't delay her at all. She although on vacation kept me informed of the process and we were able to agree on the sale all while she was gone. She really went above and beyond.

When the sale took place Elaine arraigned for me to sign my papers in my new state which made it so much easier. She was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Elaine to anyone who wants great service.

recent beneficiary of Elaine's great help in buying a house
My wife and I will be moving into our newly-purchased house this coming Tuesday. We are a bit overwhelmed with the whole packing experience, but I want to take a few minutes to publicly thank Elaine for her excellent, sensitive, thoughtful, skillful, kind assistance.
Thanks to her, we got to tour several possible choices and, following her advice, we narrowed down the list and came back for a second viewing of the top few. Then after we decided which one to buy, we made an offer which was accepted and got going on planning and getting ready to make the move.
Elaine was extremely helpful at every stage of this complex, emotional and very important process. If anyone reading this is thinking of asking Elaine's help, but needs answers to questions before deciding, you are welcome to call me on my mobile phone which is making the move with me, at 650-703-2644.

Home buyer at Trilogy
Elaine did an amazing job for us in finding the perfect home! We worked with her for over six months, as she assured us the right home would come up for sale, showed us many options, and was very helpful through the whole process. Her experience was KEY in closing our deal. She knew how to handle very professionally some issues that came up during escrow, when an inexperienced agent would not have know how to handle these hurdles. We were relocating from out of town, and she went above and beyond in getting everything done in a timely manner, and even after close of escrow, meeting service and repairmen when we couldn't be there. We have bought and sold 7 homes over the past 35 years, and Elaine was one of the BEST agents we have worked with. We highly recommend her, if you are a buyer or a seller!

Elaine King was wonderful to work with; friendly, patient, and professional. She took us around to see numerous homes on short notice due to our tight schedule from Los Gatos. Elaine personalized our visits based on her interviewing us as to our preferences, likes, dislikes, etc. to cut out wasted time and to look for only those homes that would meet our requirements and interests. Elaine gave us financial information such as Brentwood tax structure, etc. As she lives in the Brentwood area she was well-versed in all four Summersets and the Trilogy complex among other Brentwood area homes. She also offered great restaurant recommendations. Her experience and rapport with other Realtors made it easy to coordinate site visits of any properties. We would highly recommend Elaine be your Realtor of choice to buy or sell your home.
Regards,

Elaine provided us a half day tour of resales, new models and the City of Brentwood. We appreciated her frankness and honesty. She provided an informative comparison of the advantages as well as the disadvantages of both resales and new construction. After her visit, we felt much better about moving forward with a home search. I would highly recommend Elaine for anyone looking for a home in the East Bay.

We appreciated Elaine’s thoroughness with details and guidance through the entire process from house hunting to closing. She never complained about our many questions and I’m sure, repeats. When she said she would do something you could count on her to follow through. She was encouraging and supportive. She is a very detail oriented person. We would be happy to use her again or recommend her to friends.

We've moved quite a few times through the years, and must say that Elaine King was overall the best realtor we've worked with. Several things that made her stand out were her knowledge of the market, her honesty, a non-stop work ethic, and her connections with other quality resources to help in the process of moving. We enjoyed great open dialogue with her and always found her willing to listen and provide quality feedback. We would highly recommend her to our family and friends.

My husband, Gary and I have worked with Elaine for over two years. We were transitioning from living in TN to moving to CA. We hoped to find a rental property while searching for a home to buy. Elaine prepared properties for us to view to as well as good info about the new CA community. We found Elaine to be very knowledgeable about the homes in Brentwood, as well as honest and kind. We currently are renting while looking for our forever home. We give Elaine our highest recommendation.

Elaine was our realtor in purchasing our beautiful new home. She was gracious and spent many days and hours with my wife and I in finding the perfect home. She is a true professional, knows the marketplace well and very attentive to detail. Highly recommended!

Elaine did a great job. Always communicating everything we needed to keep on top of. We have used her previously and would highly, highly recommend her.

I highly recommend Elaine as your buying agent if you are interested in the Over 55 community of Trilogy at The Vineyards in Brentwood, CA. After considering new construction at Trilogy, I was attracted to Elaine's blog because of her focus on the community and reached out to her to help us navigate 10 years of Trilogy builds and several Villages. Elaine worked with us for a year, allowed us to "kick the tires" and steered us to on dream home, based on the priorities on our wish list. Elaine listened to our needs, coached us to be patient until we found the "right one" and made the administrative side of the process seamless. We are so happy to have purchased a home overlooking the vineyards in the original Bordeaux Village, with its high ceilings and vineyard lot. Thank you Elaine!

When you get good advice then get a full price, no contingency offer on the first day—what more is there to say? Elaine is professional, knowledgeable and totally willing to do whatever needs to be done to make the process easy and totally successful. I wholeheartedly, and without any reservation, recommend Elaine.

We worked with Elaine to sell a property in the Summerset community, and found her to be a truly invaluable resource. In addition to being extremely pleasant and professional, she went out of her way to do any and everything to make the stressful process go smoothly and make the sale happen! She went above and beyond the “norm”, introducing us to numerous service people and companies that we needed to bring the house up to speed and help us invest our dollars wisely. When we were unable to meet with service and repair people, inspectors, etc., she would volunteer her time on even the shortest of notice. She’s an outstanding communicator who always kept us informed. Selling a home can be an overwhelming process, but Elaine made all the steps more manageable and made us feel we were in good hands with her on our team. We can’t thank or recommend her highly enough!

Elaine was a delight to work with in selling my home. It was obvious when she represented me in the sale of my home that she has a great amount of training and experience, and, most importantly, sound judgment. Elaine thoughtfully came up with a marketing strategy and personally took steps to implement her ideas to present my home in its best light. Without exception, Elaine replied to my emails and text messages within an hour. I have to rank her service to me as a 10 on a scale of 10.

Elaine King really goes above and beyond for her clients. She knows the market, and can give great advice about how to ensure the home you are selling comes across in the best light. We were in a time of mourning, as we had lost our Mom, and needed to sell her home. Elaine was caring, supportive, and helped us navigate this difficult time with kindness. She took care of details that made the whole process so much easier. She earned my trust quickly, was fully transparent, and a total professional. We highly recommend Elaine. She will take good care of you, no matter the situation you are in.

Elaine went the extra mile for us. We were living in San Jose at the time and we never worried about meeting inspectors, workmen and anyone else who needed access to the property - she was always "Johnny on the spot". We definitely would recommend Elaine to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home.

Thank You

We first contacted Elaine in the summer of 2014, requesting information about rentals and/or homes for sale in Summerset. Over the next 20 months, she patiently worked with us to understand our interests and budget. She assisted in making a couple offers and counter offers but at no time did she ever pressure us to make a decision or get frustrated with us during the process. In the end, we finally negotiated a fair price and although it was a time consuming process, she was with us all the way. I would definitely recommend Elaine, especially for homes in the Summerset subdivision!

Elaine helped my wife and I buy our home in 2009. We looked at least a hundred homes in various cities in Contra Costa County and ended up buying a home in Summerset III, Brentwood California. Elaine was professional, patient and helpful in all aspects of the process. Since the purchase she has regularly kept us informed about the marketplace. Best of all she has become our friend and neighbor.
