“After I sent a request for a recommendation for Real Estate Agents in the area on Next-Door, I received a message from Elaine Mallon. I heard from other agents as well and I personally interviewed 6 of them. Two stood out, but Elaine had something extra.
She is smart, knowledgeable on real estate and very quick with responses over text and email. After completing a small amount of paperwork and a tour of our home for ideas on staging, Elaine was ready… to go! Almost immediately she had us scheduled with her professional photographer, which she supplies at no cost to the seller, and had her tasteful sign up at our condo building.
Following the first open house, Elaine received several offers and just a few days later, we had a sale, OVER ASKING PRICE!
Her marketing technique, staging skills, pricing strategy, real estate knowledge and professionalism are unlike any other. I have sold and bought 8 homes to date and in my experience, Elaine is the hardest working, most results driven agent I have ever worked with. I would HIGHLY recommend her to sell as well as purchase a home. She is currently working hard to find me a new home.”
— Barbara Toyama, Seller
“Elaine is incredibly personable, sharp, caring and knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate industry. As a trusted real estate advisor, known for her business acumen, humor and protective concern, she skillfully handled any unexpected issue that arose during our complex transaction, which included me and two other investor/partners. Elaine is laser focused on her client’s best interests and exceeded every expectation we thought a real estate professional would be. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is absolutely the best!”
— C. Vega & Investors, Buyers
“Elaine was our buyer’s broker for our 7th and most complex residential real estate transaction. Throughout our 10 month home search, exacerbated by being geographically separated, Elaine was superb in every step of the process. Her expert knowledge of South Bay neighborhoods, impeccable integrity, professionalism, and warm personality were a perfect match. Her win-win approach got us into our perfect new home and closed a great deal despite a few end-game pitfalls. She is without a doubt the best Realtor we have ever had the pleasure to work with.”
— Henry & Stephanie Reed, Buyers
“Elaine is not the first real estate broker I have used, but she will be the one I use from now on. She is not only pleasant, she knows what she is doing. Any question you ask, she either has the answer or gets it immediately. I have had experience with her where she was working late into the night to get things done and to answer questions. Bottom line, if you want someone who knows what to do and has your best interest as your main objective, then you are going to contact Elaine.”
— Joel Friedman, President & CEO, Mikawaya, Buyer
“I had the great pleasure of working with Elaine as my Buyers Broker and cannot recommend her highly enough. What separates her from the other agents is her DEPTH OF INTELLIGENCE about the real estate industry, her genuinely warm personality, trusted counsel, high integrity, exceptional negotiation skills, and impressive conflict resolution abilities. Besides her professional acumen, Elaine’s personal touch, creativeness, and protective nature made know she had my best interests at the forefront, which was always reassuring. My “velvet pit bull” is the only real estate professional I will ever use and I will recommend her with deep appreciation and respect.
— M. Aquino, Buyer
“As a widowed parent going through a major life change, Elaine made the complex task of selling one house in the Pacific Palisades and purchasing a new home in Palos Verdes extraordinarily easy. In fact, the entire transaction from sale of the old house to moving into our new home was accomplished in just 45 days! Elaine relieved me of both the anxiety and logistics involved in coordinating both high-end sale and move. She also provided invaluable assistance in identifying schools and other critical resources in our new neighborhood. Her ability to coordinate each stage of these multiple transactions with the various principals involved — and to guide me through what is normally a stressful process — with such grace, insight and intelligence — makes it easy for me to recommend Elaine to others. And yes…we really love the house she found us!!!”
— Mark Fine, Seller & Buyer
“It’s been a great pleasure working with Elaine. Her persistence & care put my brother and his fiance in a great home that they will enjoy for a long time. Elaine made the impossible happen. Getting us in the home for viewing when the listing agent had put the home on ‘Hold’ was really impressive. Elaine coordinated an unheard of one-day doc signing, funding of our loan AND recording with the County Recorder’s office — absolutely fantastic. Truly a remarkable job and a highly efficient 18-day close! Elaine truly represents her clients best interests, and her expertise in the business educated me. I have purchased 4 homes, 2 homes I used agents. Elaine is 10 orders of magnitude better (I’m a really hard grader).”
— Tony Tran, Co-Investor/Buyer

“I worked closely with Elaine at the CBS Television Network when she was an Award-Winning Publicist and was representing some of the network’s most celebrated series & high-profile talent.

Elaine’s intelligence, humor, trustworthiness, business expertise and creative deal-making skills, made her a standout in the industry. She is a master at negotiating complex deals. Anyone who works with Elaine will be awed by her myriad of talents, her integrity, and her passion for making great things happen for her clients!”

“I moved in with my mom Elizabeth after my father passed away. Our biggest task: Selling her 3,000 square foot house and moving into a home half the size. In stepped Elaine Mallon, who offers a special sensitivity and guidance to ‘women in transition.’ She was our listing and buyer’s agent and we couldn’t have been luckier to find her. I had never been through the process of selling and buying real estate before and she held our hands and guided us through the entire process.
The first time I met Elaine, she spent 5 hours at my mom’s house staging the inside and out. She dragged furniture around and practically re-gardened our whole yard. All that, in high heels! Every Sunday, Elaine would arrive with her positive attitude and ceaseless energy for an open house.
My mother now has a comfortable nest egg to retire on and it was all due to our amazingly incredible real estate agent, Elaine Mallon.
She’s not only caring, energetic, vivacious, uplifting, and super-duper professional, her contagious sense of humor and warm personality made us feel like we had a true friend on our side.”
