I find it hard sometimes to stop my busy schedule and recognize outstanding customer service, integrity, and honesty; however, in Elie’s case we had to let him know that we love our forever home and appreciate his diligence in finding the perfect home for our family.

Elie represents what it means to put the customer first. I am a pretty good judge of character and have been in the sales, marketing and customer service field for the past 15 years.

My family and I started our home buying experience without a realtor. We looked at over 50 homes and quickly realized that there is a clear distinction of the kind of realtor we wanted to work with. We came to this conclusion by working with other realtors and for many reasons, which I won’t get into. As fate would have it, we happen to see a home that we were interested in, while out driving around on father’s day. I called Elie, not realizing it was father’s day and he made time to show us the house.

After looking at a few more homes without a realtor, I couldn’t help but think about how impressed I was with Elie. So I asked Elie to show another home to us and he quickly obliged. My wife and I decided we needed to make a decision out of all the realtors we had met and the easy decision was to pick Elie.

Elie is a listening oriented individual, who possesses a high degree of knowledge and a masterful ability to negotiate. His work ethic surpassed all my expectations. He has the ability to really make you feel like you are his only client and very easy to trust.

Thank you Elie,

Elie helped us sell our condo and buy a new one this past year. We have nothing, but roses to speak of Elie. He is so incredibly professional and caring, and just made the whole process of buying and selling not only easy and effortless but even pleasant. Elie was a complete delight to work with. As a young couple we weren't very knowledgeable, and we previously dealt with different realtors who either were slow to respond or on the contrary, were pushing us towards properties actively trying to get a sale. Elie sold our condo in no time and for more money than we expected!

Elie is very knowledgeable on the market, and took time to help us with all the questions we kept sending his way. He is very patient, we were extremely impressed by his work ethic and his expertise.

We also really appreciated how responsive he was, using all the latest technology, having everything signed electronically to make sure we didn't miss on a good deal. He was available at any time by phone, text or email. He is an adept negotiator who was able to save us significantly on our new home.

Above all, he was very ethical always letting us take our time, providing expert advice instead of selling, and letting us sell ourselves the home WE wanted. When the time comes to purchase a family house we will undoubtedly work with Elie.

We could not recommend him enough, if you are looking to buy or sell a property and want to have an easy, efficient and wonderful experience, we recommend working with Elie!!

Thank you Elie!!

We couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent. Elie met all of our needs and so much more. He went way above the bar for our house that we were selling and the one we purchased. He was our agent for both deals. Elie works for you on every single layer. He was also my therapist going through this process!!! Elie is the realtor that I will ALWAYS refer to anyone who is selling or buying a house.

Our experience with Elie as our real estate agent was wonderful. He knew what we were looking for and when the house we had found that hadn't "hit the market yet" hit the market. We had a showing and put an offer in on that house the same day. Elie is easy to work with, always willing to accommodate our any need. Great experience - we won't use anyone else! Big thanks to Elie!

We met Elie when we saw a house we liked. He knew everything about the house GOOD AND BAD and told us everything. He worked hard to get us a good price from the bank. We listed the house we are living in with him. He took care of everything right up until closing. Always returned phone calls quickly. We would recommend The Safi Group to our friends and family.
