Strongly Recommend Hadley
Hadley has helped us with both purchasing and selling our home all while we were thousands of miles away and under serious time crunches. She was very informative and helped us understand every phase of both buying and selling. We are very grateful for her assistance, particularly preparing and staging our home to sell. We would strongly recommend Hadley or any of the Elston team.

Sunny Made Our Dreams Come True
We just closed escrow with Sunny and her team. This is the 4th in 8 years and her skills made our dreams come true. Hadley even put us on a computer watch program for new listings which gave us a jump on this one. Such knowledge and professionalism, and boy, can she act FAST!

Incredible to Work With
Sunny and her team were incredible to work with. Moving from a sleepy town in New Hampshire to the overheated real estate climate of the Seattle area was challenging to say the least. Sunny, Steve, and Hadley helped us to find the right area and home and successfully purchase and close on it. The process wasn't without its challenges, but we found there was nothing Sunny and her team couldn't handle, and they were on top of every detail. Thank you!

Just Bought our Dream Home
We just bought our dream home with the Elston team. We had worked with Steve for our past real estate purchase. For this recent purchase, Sunny and Hadley we also big help! I was living out of state during our home shopping. So Sunny even FaceTimed with me for multiple open houses. They are always there for you throughout the process. We trusted them 100% and they got us the home we love!

This Team was with us Every Step
Buying and selling a house can be absolutely stressful. This team was with us every step of the way and made it obvious as to why you need a competent realtor to get through this process successfully. Thank you Sunny, Steve, and Hadley!

Repeat Home Buyer
I worked with the Elstons twice for my home search and both the times, I had an amazing experience working with them. They are always on top of things and available for you even if it is a last minute request. They are highly knowledgeable of the market and can provide great insights into properties that have great potential for appreciation. They also have a great network of mortgage lenders, home inspectors, electricians etc whom you can trust making them a great point of contact for all things home related. I am glad I had them on my side during my home purchases!

Great professionalism, market knowledge and sensitivity to clients needs, both buyers and sellers. They have done exemplary work for us in 4 deals, 3 purchases and 1 sale, with things working out great in all 4 cases. I credit their astute market knowledge & ability to spot relevant new listings with a significant enhancement to our net worth and standard of living. Staging skill and guidance during a renovation helped optimize a sale. Attention to detail and skill managing transaction progression has minimized and all but eliminated the anxiety and speed bumps that crop up in 6 digit (and more) price tag purchases and sales. Highly recommended!

Grateful for their Guidance!
We worked with Steve from the Elston team to buy our first property. In a cut-throat sellers' market we feel grateful to have had Steve's guidance. We had an offer accepted for a home in Woodinville in about 2 weeks after starting to work with him. When we first met, Steve took the time to understand our needs. He helped us form realistic expectations and made sure we knew what to expect at every step in the process. Steve and his team made themselves available to us any time of day and responded quickly to our requests to view homes. Steve's experience was apparent when viewing homes as he made sure to look over the house himself and point out pros and cons. And, finally, the offer writing experience was a breeze with the Elston team. Steve sat down with us for over an hour (in the snow) to go over all the documents that went into an offer and made sure we understood the contingencies. Ultimately, we believe it was the strong and well-written offer that the Elston team helped us put together that won us the house. You won't regret working with the Elston team to buy your home.

Hire The Elston Team
Hiring the Elston Team to handle our entire sale/search/purchase escapade (aka Disasterfest 2019) was one of the best personal and business decisions I've ever made (and I've made more regrettable ones than I care to admit). They plan and execute flawlessly, are unflappable under pressure, handle difficult people and situations with endless grace, and provide rational, actionable insight at every critical decision point. Our house prep/sale/search/purchase situation was so fraught with last minute hand grenades and unexpected poop bombs that it became almost comical - and anything other than essentially perfect representation would have scuttled or delayed the transaction. No big deal to Sunny, Steve, and Hadley - they pretty much smashed each curveball out of the park, had a contingency plan in place for every debacle, and singlehandedly prevented me from running away screaming into the forest, never to return. Thanks to the Elstons, my wife no longer has to consider the mechanics of how to periodically coax me out of said forest - instead, we can view and enjoy it together, from the comfort of our beautiful new home!

I'll never do it alone again!
I’d never considered an agent before and now after working with Sunny and team I’d never do it alone again. I was worried about who they were working for, but the number of properties sunny walked me out of because the price was too high, or the property had an issue I didn’t know to look for they earned my trust 100%. They were literally with us through the process and being new to the US they endured and answered all of our questions about a process we knew nothing about. I’d recommend them to anyone that would listen.

Steve is a great Realtor
Steve is a great realtor. When we met first, he listened me very well to understand what I am looking for with to the point follow up questions. It made me feel very confident to work with and I wasn’t wrong. The houses he sent to me for my review were aligning with my needs. He and his family team is super responsive, none of my questions hung on the air. After I decided on a house, all the process was super smoothly handled by Steve. I trusted him and I wasn’t wrong. I highly recommend Steve and whole Elston team to work with.

We Loved Working with the Elston Team!
There’s almost too much to share about how much we loved working with and would highly recommend the Elston Team for any of your real estate needs!
Hadley, Sunny, and Steve truly went above and beyond throughout the entire process of us finding and ultimately buying our first home in Everett. From the very beginning, Hadley accommodated every last minute showing request, answered every question we had, and gave her honest opinion on the homes we looked at when we asked. She reached out to every listing agent to gain insight on other offers and what the sellers might be looking for in an offer. When it came time to build one of the few offers we made on a home, Hadley walked us through all of our options to make our offer competitive and even prepared CMA’s (comparable homes) for us when we were trying to decide what to offer on a home. She facilitated several calls with title companies to make sure no easements or issues were present on the titles of homes we liked. On top of all of that, Hadley provided recommendations on our lender, home inspector, drain specialist, and more.
Whenever Hadley wasn’t able to show a home to us, either Sunny or Steve would step in. We can’t stress how useful that was in this crazy market where showings are limited and homes go pending in a blink of an eye. Sunny is extremely knowledgable about important aspects and details of a home and even shared her wisdom on investment/remodeling opportunities for houses we saw.
Steve was actually who showed us the home we ultimately had our offer accepted on. As someone who has always wanted to own an old home, Steve had a flashlight in hand and explained to me some of the good and not so great parts of our home, which was extremely helpful and appreciated. Before that showing, we actually put in an offer for another old home (100+ years old) that needed a lot of work; Hadley set up a call with us and Steve to go over the inspection report together and get a better idea about what repairs costs might look like from his personal experience.
When we got our offer accepted on our home, Hadley prepared us a calendar on when we could expect parts of the home closing process to occur; she even had the idea to take a photo of us in front of our new home! During packing, she was kind enough to let us borrow her dolly and even dropped off some packing supplies! On our closing date, Hadley personally dropped off the keys along with a curated, sweet gift basket that included items that really showed how much she listened and got to know us.
I can guarantee that the random realtor your mom or friend recommended to you is nowhere close to the Elston Team in terms of service, knowledge, and genuine care about finding you the perfect home.

Steve Elston and the entire Elston team brought over 25 years of combined experience in the Seattle / Puget Sound / Pacific Northwest market, and delivered clear, concise, ethical and trusted advice.

Highly Recommend Working with the Elston Team!
I cannot say enough about the amazing experience we had buying our first home with Hadley! It was mid-pandemic and we were searching from another state.
Hadley was flexible and accommodating, always available to answer questions or look into a new home. We made a last minute trip to the Seattle Area and she was able to set up a bunch of tours for us.
When we weren't able to see the houses in person, Hadley would facetime us and send photos and updates constantly.
House buying is such a stressful process but Hadley and her family made it so smooth!
I would highly recommend working with them.
