“Elaine is knowledgeable, professional, helpful, considerate, and committed to a level of customer service we have never experienced before.”
Our experience with Elaine was amazing. We have had the privilege of working with her a couple of times and she is professional and all about taking care of her clients the best possible way. I wouldn’t consider anyone else to make such a big decision with.

“We have utilized the services of Elaine Benson as a Realtor on a number of estate files one in particular was extremely difficult in that property had been poorly maintained by the individuals occupying the residence after the death of the owner. Our clients were very pleased with the ultimate marketing and sale of the property which was handled in an efficient and professional manner by Elaine notwithstanding the difficult situation. We have no hesitation in recommending Elaine's services. ”
This letter is to testify my case of having Elaine Benson doing an excellent job in selling my house. I owned a house in1412 Charlotte Cr., Anmore BC, and I had to sell due toa divorce. I have to be out of Canada most of the time and through the introduction of Royal Bank of Canada, I came to know Elaine Benson. She discussed with me on the selling strategy and once agreed, I practically pack up, moved out and left the whole selling in her hands. She took care and arranged everything from staging of the house, getting the client, fixing up the house so it can pass the house inspection till the closing of the sale. All along she keeps an eye on the house for me and only charges me the necessary expense at cost. I highly recommend Elaine Benson to someone wo needs a one stop shopping for selling a house,
For many months working with Elaine, before purchasing a home in Port Moody in February 2009, Elaine knew - well before we did - the type of home we would eventually buy! She understood what we were looking for and respected that fact that we were 'picky buyers', and worked that much harder to find the perfect house for us. Once we moveed here into temporary accomodations, Elaine spent time with us virtually every weekend, showing us properties and discussing the market. Elaine and Cort were both very generous with their time helping us get oriented with ther Tri-City area, and providing valuable advice and referrals as we got settled into our new home. Elaine was a consumate professional - she is very knowledgeable about the local market and the properties, and just as important, has strong relationsships with other agents inthe area. The fact that Elaine had a very good relationship with the agent who listed the house that we bought made the difference! Most important, Elaine was always honest with us about the potential issues with a property or area and any extra costs, which was greatly appreciated as we were not familiar with many aspects of the home ownership in BC municiplalites. We would not hesitate to recommened Elaine to anyone looking for a home in the Tri City area. A year later, not a week goes by when we don't say how lucky we were to find the house of our dreams, and Elaine was integral in helping us find the perfect home.
We have known Elaine for several years. She is very professional, efficient and answered all our questions in a speedy manner. She is very approachable and excellent at her job. We will definitely use Elaine again in our next real estate transaction and recommend her to neighbours and friends.
I first met Elaine over 2 years ago when I was listing a home and found her to be very efficient and professional. We not only sold that property, she sold 2 more for us this spring, all with efficiency and very timely manner. A results oriented lady, pleasure to have her working for us.
Elaine was thorough, courteous and knowledgeable on how to market our home. She proved herself to be a real “go-getter” without being offensive or intrusive to our family. We found Elaine to be professional but friendly, hardworking and committed.

In June of this year, in anticipation of a possible job transfer, I contacted Ms Elaine Benson to discuss the potential sale of our home. I was aware that Elaine had extensive and long standing experience as a realtor in our area. In October, while we were away on holiday, I learned that I was to be transferred and I contacted Elaine immediately list our house. On the date that we returned home, we had an acceptable offer to purchase. It took Elaine 13 days from listing to subject/condition removal to sell our house, and she obtained the highest price for a townhouse in our complex, ever. In fact, we received a substantially higher amount than we had expected. Elaine recommended a colleague to assist us in our home purchase in Ontario. Her reference was impecable, and this realtor provided us with the same exceptional and efficient service that Elaine did. When it comes to professional and attentive service and knowledge of the real estate business, I cannot speak highly enough of Elaine. If I return to this area, I wouldn’t consider using anyone else as my realtor. I am speaking for my husband in this letter as well, as he completely concurs.
We both, David and Diana Finlay, were and still are most appreciative and impressed with Elaine’s total work ethic and knowledge of this whole process. Her recommendations for certain necessary tasks and jobs made it much easier for us not to have to do the various bits of research. Even in a supposedly sellers market, Elaine did the full court press! Full handouts for prospective purchasers, including floor plans, 3D plans of possibilities, and four pages of pictures to show our home in the best possible way at the open house viewings. Sold in 8 days! Very, very impressive! We can honestly offer our recommendation of Elaine to anyone needing a knowledgeable and classy realtor for either the sale or purchase of a property.

Dear Elaine I just wanted to thank you for your time and assistance in finding our new home in Port Moody. Your knowledge of the area and professional support made our search for our first Canadian home, and ultimately our move from England, as smooth and trouble-free as one could hope for. It was a pleasure having you as our realtor and I would not hesitate in recommending you to other home buyers (or indeed sellers). You’ll be the first to know when we’re ready to move home again. Best wishes
Hi Elaine We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and Cort for the wonderful job you did in selling our house. We can’t say enough about your wonderful service from being able to contact you directly, the open houses you held, your follow ups. .It was really nice to not have a lock box on the house and for you or Cort to be there for every open house and every appointment even with other agents – we felt that was going above and beyond. It was a pleasure having you as our realtor. Although you were very professional in all that you did you felt like a friend. Our only regret is that we did not list our house with you from the start because you did a fantastic job. I told the neighbors that if they are interested in selling their house THAT YOU ARE THE REALTOR. Perhaps you would like to move to Kamloops as the city could always use another good realtor. We wish you both all the best
