Elie and Deborah Safi – The Safi Group

"A Tradition in Trust"

Whether buying or selling a home our clients are empowered with the tools and resources that we offer to guide you through the process.

We offer an Easy Exit guarantee with no long term contracts in an effort to provide a fully satisfying service for our clients.

With over 28 years of experience in the Real Estate business as Broker/Owners of Re/max Advisors, we are dedicated professionals here to assist you!

Communication and reliability are key with our Team and we pride ourselves in our responsive reputation. We want to always keep our clients updated and strive to answer all questions and concerns promptly.

We want your home to tell a story to potential buyers. Our Team includes an expert Stager/Decorator who collaborates with the homeowner to stage the home; accentuating all the positive attributes. Our professional photographer is also a key component in presentation of your home from an artistic point of view on the Internet and Social Media sites.

We both continue to participate in numerous advanced Real Estate training courses each year which allows us to share the latest market, legal, and technical information with you.

We look forward to working with you and for you.
