We Are The SAFI Group
Real Estate Experts with a Tradition in Trust
Real Estate isn't about getting a sale.... it's about listening to you, and helping you achieve YOUR goals according to budget.
At The SAFI Group we believe in building a relationship founded on: • Trust • Transparency • Responsiveness • Team Effort
With more than 30 plus years of combined experience, Elie and Deborah truly believe in helping their clients find an experience. We get to know our clients, and often become lifelong friends.
Elie grew up in West St. Paul and began his career in Real Estate after graduating from The Carlson School of Business. He has always had a lifelong passion for business and has sold thousands of homes over his career with his expertise being in negotiations. When Elie is not selling homes, he loves to hang out with his wife and four kids, and training his black lab puppy who adores him!
Deborah is also a native of Minnesota and started her career as a cardiac nurse in a St. Paul hospital. She has a passion for helping others and Real Estate has been the perfect transition. She always tries to put her clients first and communication is number one. In her free time she enjoys spending time outside enjoying Nature! Long walks and bike rides with the kids and her two dogs Piper and Lilly.
