I met Elisa at an open house. At the time, I was just thinking about buying - but she got me in touch with a great loan guy who helped me figure how much I could afford. As a first time home buyer, I had no idea how important real estate agents were - so I was lucky enough to stumble upon Elisa. She helped me through the process and was always available to answer my questions in a cheery manner. Elisa went above and beyond advocating for me. She recommended a wonderful inspector who found a sewer issue and a roofing issue that was overlooked by other building inspectors. I'm sure it saved me a huge amount of money in the end. She even suggested asking for things I hadn't even thought of myself. To sum it up - I am so happy that I worked with Elisa for my first home buying experience and I would recommend her highly!! Molly, Temescal area of Oakland, 2011

Elisa Uribe has demonstrated thoughtful and practical guidance throughout the process of my property purchase. I have had no prior experience working with a real estate agent, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the anticipated outcome this week of closing weeks ahead of the projected closing. Elisa has maintained constant communication, making herself available 24/7 while tactfully and prudently facilitating the process with all other parties of interest. I absolutely recommend interviewing and considering Elisa Uribe to represent your interests in future real estate transactions. Ken, El Ceritto, CA 2011


Represented the Buyers:

I could not recommend Elisa enough! She worked with us for months to help our little family find the perfect new home. She is a shrewd and masterful negotiator, which was almost surprising because she is so nice, warm and sweet but she really goes to bat for her clients. She went above and beyond also finding us a great loan officer, contractor, home inspector. She took her time to really walk us through the process.- Joe and Justine, El Ceritto, CA 2011

 


Represented the Sellers:

With our short sale case in hand, Elisa was extremely focused, hard-working, fearless, an incredible, multi-faceted, solution seeker who will not take "No" for an answer and does not understand the meaning of the word "Can't". As short sales are a long process, Elisa's perservance and confidence throughout it had instilled great optimism in us to believe that there will be a positive outcome. One of Elisa's greatest talents is her awareness of all the resources available to assist her. She brings confidence to her work, extensive knowledge, and years of experience in her industry which was demonstrated in our successful short sale as the end result. Elisa has earned our highest recommendation! - Jay and Christine Oakland, CA 2010


Represented the Buyer:

Yeah! Thank you so much, words truly cannot express my gratitude, I felt like I had two compassionate women, who I just met, rallying behind me, it's a humbling experience. The support and positive attitude really  kept me going, I will be talking to you soon. Thanks again, and cheers to home ownership!  -  Adanna, Oakland, CA 2010


Represented the Buyers:

Working with Elisa was an absolute joy. She's smart and organized and really on top of her game.  Our "short" sale purchase was anything but short, but Elisa made the process as easy as possible and definitely went the extra mile for us.  We would have been lost without her. We will certainly use her for all our future real estate needs and are planning to recommend her to all our friends.  Thanks, Elisa!  - Sarah & Craig, Berkeley, CA 2010

Late last spring, my husband and I made a very quick life-changing decision to sell our very modest house and move out of the East Bay. We had put a lot of work into the house over the years and it had a great view of the Bay, but we were extremely nervous about selling a house that needed a lot more work in a down market. We were also very concerned about not getting a price we felt good about knowing that if we had taken this step two years ago we could have sold it for considerably more. My husband took over the job of ‘dealing with the realtor’ as he was dealing with selling his mother’s house at the same time with another realtor and had the experience. That is when Elisa entered our lives and what we had expected to be a nightmare turned into a dream! The comparison between selling the two houses was dramatic. Elisa was so incredibly organized and so unbelievably easy to work with. Her recommendations for fixing up the house and advice about pricing were right on target. We probably couldn’t have found a worse time to sell our house but Elisa managed, after one week on the market, to compile 7 offers with the majority well over asking price. The process was like silk and it has taken me a while to write this because it is almost as if it didn’t really happen! Elisa is a joy to work with, so gracious and a real friend. I would happily and highly recommend her to anyone who is in the real estate market. Amy and Billy, Upper Laurel, Oakland CA 2009

It's hard to know where to begin when talking about how amazing Elisa was in helping me buy my first house. For a long time I had thought about buying a house, and when I finally decided I was ready I wasn't quite sure where to begin. Thankfully I had Elisa to walk me through the entire process.
Buying a house, for the first time when so much was changing in the housing market and financial sector would have been overwhelming without Elisa. I'm not a patient person by nature, and the "process" wasn't something I was use to and had it not been for Elisa, I might have given up. There was a brief moment when I thought, maybe it wasn't the right time for me. Elisa answered all my questions, walked me through my concerns and before I knew it, I was in my dream house. I will never be able to thank her enough for helping to make my dreams possible. -Christina, Laurel District, Oakland CA 2009


 

Represented the Buyer:  

I find myself erasing and revising repeatedly to get it just right-in the same way Elisa gets real estate...just right. Elisa was beyond professional with uncanny attention to detail. She is experienced, assertive-not pushy, a good listener and in the end knew when she had found the perfect home for us. Months after the fact she is just as attentive to every question, need and detail. Bravo!

Being first time buyers in a crazy market, having Elisa to guide us through the process was very reassuring. Elisa was always available to answer our questions and help us understand our options in a changing market.  Elisa worked closely with our mortgage broker and it was great to know that she was keeping tabs on all aspects of the prospect. Without Elisa's expertise, we would have not have found our wonderful first home!  The Gray-Boero Family, Laurel Heights, Oakland CA

It is hard to put into words how much it meant to us to have Elisa Uribe guide us through the process of buying our first home. My husband and I felt supremely confident having her represent us. Elisa is the complete package. She is the perfect blend of educator, motivator and confidant. She is aggressive, but not pushy. Elisa utilizes her many resources in finding, researching and comparing prospective properties. She had fantastic suggestions about every aspect of home buying as well as home ownership. Elisa was supportive and walked us through our trepidations while being respectful and attentive to our needs and desires.

Elisa provided the epitome of full service by letting us know what to expect every step of the way and reminding us of things that we needed to take care of. Home buying is an overwhelming process anytime and she made our first experience with it an extremely positive one. Any time that we or anyone we know needs a realtor in the future we will call Elisa and we highly recommend that you do, too. J&D Karigaca, Maxwell Park, Oakland CA

 

 


 

Represented the Buyer:


We would like to tell briefly of our experience with Elisa Uribe who was our agent for more than the 7 months it took for us to find the home in the East Bay. Thanks to her dedication, expertise, support, and warm manner, we had a pleasant and successful real estate search. Elisa is not only flexible with her own schedule and always reliable and accommodating. She showed professionalism by seeking out to understand all of our various needs in a home. She got to understand the type of property that would suit us. If something wasn't quite right she understood and could easily tell what worked and what didn't. She was very helpful in guiding us through not just the many options on the market, but also the paper work. She made us feel that our transaction was in competent hands and with our best interest in mind. Aside from her professionalism and ability to handle the business side of real estate, Elisa was not out to sell us a property just so she could make a sale. She had a long term focus keeping our satisfaction a primary concern. When the right property for us did come along, she was with us every step of the way in the negotiation process. She demonstrated her commitment to us, always going above and beyond. After the sale she assisted us with references for various services and even community activities for our family. We are very grateful to have had Elisa as our agent and recommend her highly to anyone who is in the market. Thank you Elisa! -M. Woodruff, Upper Rockridge, Oakland, CA


 

Represented the Buyer:


I can't say enough about how helpful Elisa was for my husband and me.  Although we started out looking for houses on our own, we knew that with our busy schedules we would need professional help when the time came for us to get serious about buying our house.  From a friend's recommendation we contacted Elisa.  She stepped right in and helped us through every step and was always available for guidance and support in our first home buying experience.  We were able to close ahead of schedule as Elisa helped navigate us through the process.  Beyond being a wonderful agent Elisa became a great friend, too! -C. Sue, Harbor Bay, Alameda CA

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with Elisa Uribe. From our first meeting, Elisa was always incredibly helpful and professional. She made our first home buying experience a smooth one and was there to guide us during each step of the process. Elisa made herself 100% accessible and had a way of making us feel like her only clients with her undivided attention. Not only did we find an excellent realtor, whom we'd highly recommend..but, we found a new friend too!! -F. Coy, Near Piedmont Ave, Oakland, CA

I was expecting my first home buying experience to be stressful, but Elisa made the process exciting and positive.  She pairs great knowledge of the area with terrific intuition about what you're looking for.  It didn't take long to find a place I love in a neighborhood I wasn't originally focusing on.  From start to finish, Elisa was always available by phone and email to quickly answer questions and explain things.  I never felt overwhelmed, rushed, or neglected.  Thanks, Elisa!

Represented the Seller/Buyer:


Thanks for staying so patient with us through the long 4.5 month process! Working with you has been a great learning experience for me. Not only did I learn more about how to buy/sell a home, I also improved my skills in reading contracts, negotiating, following up on issues, and staying sane through all the road-bumps along the way! J. Wong, Emeryville, CA


 

Represented the Buyer:


Dear Elisa, This letter is to express my appreciation for the wonderful service I received from you. I began my search for a home that would fit my budget, lifestyle, and particular interests several months ago without representation from an agent and without success.

 

When I was introduced to you by Kate Phillips, you began working with me to assist me in finding a home that would meet my most important needs and that my daughter and I could happily and safely call home.

Almost immediately you provided me with lists of homes and you were available to show them to me on my difficult and limited schedule. Each time we met you were supportive and I felt assured that the home for me was out there and together we would find it.

After a few weeks of working with you, we in fact found my new home. You were quick to write an offer that was accepted immediately by the seller. During the process of closing you continued to professionally deal with any issues that presented challenges. More importantly throughout the process you remained in constant communication with me regarding the status of my purchase.

I appreciate the efficient and professional attitude that you demonstrated and I would highly recommend your services to any of my friends or colleagues. K.S. Wiggins, Allendale, Oakland

Elisa Uribe at Wells and Bennett made selling and buying a house so much easier on us, especially since we started this process when my husband and I were six months pregnant! First, she sold our house in a matter of days, kept us up to date on when ads, tours and open houses would be and was always accommodating when things weren’t convenient for us. She also booked and attended all of the appointments with our various inspectors, agents and title companies.
Elisa’s wonderful service didn’t stop when she sold our property. No matter when or where we wanted to see a house, she was there, same day, to show us the property. Which is no small feat, as we looked at over 50 homes! And when we did finally close on our house, Elisa volunteered and met with painters, roofers, and other contractors we hired to fix up our house when we were at work. She always made us feel as we were her only clients.

We cannot express enough, our gratitude to Elisa Uribe and Wells and Bennett for everything they’ve done for us.  A. Montemayor & M. Leefers, San Leandro, CA

"Thank you Elisa! I cannot tell you how much both my wife and I appreciate what you did for us by helping us sell our home and find a home to buy when timing was so critical. It took perseverance and negotiating skills to find our new home and strategic marketing skills to time the close on our current home, thus saving us a lot of money and headaches. I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a professional Realtor." A. Farbod, Oakland. 


 

Represented the Buyer:


"Elisa, how can we ever thank you enough. You really made our first home buying experience enjoyable and fearless as well as educational. Thank you so much for your tireless efforts in ensuring the entire process went smoothly. Even when bumps in the road came up you were able to answer all our questions so that we could make the best informed decisions. You always listened to our hopes, desires, dreams and concerns, and then making them your own. We are more than happy to recommend you to everyone we know looking for a new home or getting ready to sell. They would be lucky to have you as their Realtor." H & J Berger, Oakland 

 


 

Represented the Buyer:


After discussing my needs with Elisa she assured me with a bit of perseverance we would find the investment property I was looking for. She was right. Before the year was over I purchased two properties and through both transactions Elisa demonstrated her exceptional skills as a Realtor.

 

Since I do not live in the area, communication via email worked great for us both in the beginning.  Elisa was consistent in viewing properties and sending me the details which saved me a considerable amount of time. Once in escrow, Elisa’s consistent follow up helped secure that we closed on time, and I would not hesitate in recommending her to an investor who is looking to purchase in a market that is tough for buyers. Thanks Elisa! I’m looking forward to working with you in 2005!" P. Millenbah, San Francisco Investor  


 

Represented the Buyer:


"Thank you for leading me down the path of homeownership. You have the knack in finding a good match with regards to property, price and neighborhood. And the patience in putting up with a first time homebuyer and all the hoops that various local, state and federal bureaucracies put in the way. Despite my nervousness and self doubt you were organized and kept things in perspective and knew when to focus on certain properties. T. Martin, Oakland
