As first time homebuyers, there was a lot about the home buying process we didn’t know and weren’t prepared for before diving into our search. We were so lucky to find Elisa! From our first conversation, we could tell she was very knowledgeable and was so great at explaining clearly some of the complicated steps and terms associated with home buying. She took the time to really get to know what our needs were and always had that in mind, while keeping us open minded about neighborhoods we were previously unfamiliar with. Elisa introduced us to our lender, who was great to work with as well. Our home search took longer than we initially expected, and Elisa was very helpful the whole time and very understanding with the emotional roller coaster of writing multiple offers. In such an unprecedented time, she was super responsive, organized, and strategic with scheduling showings. Her expertise also guided us in our decision making and we always felt like we were going in with our best and strongest offer in every scenario. She even took the time to go over any concerns and questions we had about specific items in disclosures, which really helped us figure out what mattered the most. In the end, we landed in our dream location (that we honestly had almost lost hope about because of the highly competitive market) and I’m certain we would not have found or considered this home without Elisa promptly scheduling a showing as soon as it was listed. We’re sitting on our cute little porch writing this and could not be happier. We’re so grateful to Elisa!

She is the absolute best. She has helped me buy 2 properties, both under market value. In fact the price I paid for the 2nd one was so good that one of my neighbors said "it was a steal", in this market.

Elisa is a great realtor! She is always professional, a great listener, very responsive. Buying and selling a home is overwhelming, but Elisa always provided suggestions, workarounds and instilled a great sense of confidence and reassurance for my transaction. I would ask her to represent me again in a heartbeat and will recommend her to family and friends. Thank YOU Elisa!

Elisa is the ultimate trusted advisor to help navigate the real estate market, especially during COVID-19. Extremely thoughtful and well informed, even as changes occur on a weekly basis, the combination of her professionalism, great humor, and long-time expertise residing and working in the Bay Area led to purchasing a dream home above and beyond my expectations as a first-time home buyer. I would highly recommend Elisa if you're looking for an agent who will go above and beyond.

I would highly recommend Elisa. I watched how she marketed and sold my BFF's home and I knew that she would be my realtor when my time came to sell. She was knowledgeable about the area having herself owned there. She always kept me informed as to the status which never left me wondering what was happening. Her attention to detail was one of her best qualities, not having me sign a form she felt wasn't in my best interest going into the future. It also didn't hurt that she is a genuinely a nice person. She did an excellent job for me.

Elisa is awesome! She is professional, attentive, and is very detail oriented. She also possesses a wealth of knowledge. I was buying my first home, and she was very patient with me and made the process as painless as possible. I highly recommend her.

Very happy Elisa was recommended to use as she's been amazing to work with. We've sold our house with her and we're now looking to buy (again, using her as an agent). She's aggressive when we need her to be, but also stops and takes the time to explain things when we have questions. I've already recommended her to two family members who are looking to sell/buy in the near future. Would give her more stars if possible - you will feel the same way!

When we decided to purchase a house, out best decision was to have Elisa help us. Right away, she showed knowledge, skill and confidence in the process and was able to put my nerves at ease. This could have been one of the most stressful times in our lives, but with Elisa, the process was calm and seamless. She kept in contact with us every step of the way, and taught us how to understand everything including disclosures and inspection reports. She kept in contact not only with us, but with our Loan team and Title Company, and put us in contact with other professionals that helped us along the way. Elisa's advice and leadership was priceless, and I will be recommending her to anyone buying or selling their home.

Elisa helped us to purchase a new home and sell the home that we had resided in for over 40 years. Elisa was thoughtful, compassionate, and responsive every step of the way. She was also conscientious--she made sure we purchased a home at a fair price and listed our home at a fair price. She also steered us away from homes she felt were overpriced or that would cause us potential problems years down the road. She has continued to be trusted friend and ally almost a year after our business relationship has ended. She has connected us to trusted local professionals to do work on our new home, and she checks in on us to ensure we are well and that we are content in our new home. Elisa a realtor you can rely on and trust.

Professional, nice, and on top of everything. Always available. Helped us buy our home in Oakland. Gave us a lot of good advice, which we even used in our sale of our home in Houston! I wish all realtors are like her. I highly recommend her to anyone.

My spouse and I found Elisa to be extremely prepared and organized from the first meeting. We both felt comfortable putting the sale of our first home into her hands. She was quite practical and strategic when recommending improvements prior to going to market. She was patient with educating us on the entire process, and we are pleased with the resulting sale and smooth close of escrow. Thanks!

I lived in my home 27yrs. Putting it up for sale was the hardest decision I ever made. Elisa gave me some words of wisdom that I will never forget. You see I am 61 yrs old. She said " better to sell it now while you have the energy and strength. Then, 5 yrs from now when you may not have that". She was so right. I still hear those words today. I know I could not have done this 5 yrs from now. Elisa is the best agent I have ever dealt with. In this age of marketing, you have to think outside the box. Elisa did that and so much more. Very professional. Great input on how to get my home top dollar without breaking the bank. She listened and replied to questions immediately. Does her research before listing a home. Very easy to work with. In the past 6 months, my family and I have dealt with 4 Realtors. Not one of them can compare to Elisa. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is the description of what a Realtor should be. Thanks Elisa for all your patience, input, and guidance on the sale of my home on Lyle Ct. I really could not have done it without YOU. Such a gift you found me. You're the cats, meow...J. Garcia

Elisa was my agent for a recent condo purchase in Adams Point near Lake Merritt. She was incredibly helpful along every step of the way. She was very knowledgeable and would go out of her way to help me. Elisa was also always on top of communication which relieved a lot of the stress of the process. I would recommend her and use her again.

In the spring of 2016, Elisa Uribe was my realtor in the sale of my home in the Montclair section of the Oakland Hills. I chose Elisa because of the excellent service she provided me as property manager for the same home over the years 2011-2016 (I rented out part of the house). In both capacities (property manager and realtor), I give Elisa the highest regard and rating in every possible way. Before hiring Elisa for property management, owning the Montclair home was something of a nightmare as, for financial reasons, I rented part of the house and I had bad experiences in both choice of tenants and of contractors to deal with maintenance issues. Once Elisa became involved, I had three great families as tenants over five years (with little or no vacancy down time) and, because of her knowledge of local contractors, plumbers, and other skilled workers, maintenance problems were always resolved quickly and at reasonable cost. In the sale of the house, Elisa's experience and rock solid professionalism was essential in handling the many details involved in selling a bay area home: scheduling required inspections, contracting to fix problems to local building codes, preparing documentation and the appropriate documents for signature, setting up staging, etc. In addition, Elisa's calm, positive presence kept my anxiety level at even keel. In preparation for the sale, and despite a somewhat limited budget, we were able, based on Elisa's advice, to execute significant, overdue, and necessary remodeling at a price and schedule that I would earlier have been very doubtful of. The sale was accomplished, much to my satisfaction, two or three weeks after the listing date. In closing, I would very highly recommend Elisa for any real estate based services. She is very professional and highly competent and is simply a pleasure to be around. I consider her a good friend and, no matter where it may be, will seek her advice when I decide to buy another home.

We were on a very tight deadline to find a house in a very competitive market. Elisa helped us get into contract on a house we love in less than 2 months. I couldn't have asked for more!

Back in 2009, I had a tough time renting my wonderful little house on my own. I found Elisa based on a recommendation from the Wells & Bennett office. She wasted no time getting me a top quality renter who ended up renting the home for 6 years without a problem. When it was time to sell, I felt like she took my needs into consideration every step of the way. My husband and I called her up to bounce ideas around on a recent purchase of another home, which by the way, closed successfully today, Yay! I would highly recommend Elisa Uribe for any Real Estate transaction; she's smart, knows the business and is in touch with the human spirit!

I have known Elisa Uribe for 5 years. We met when she helped us rent our first house when we moved to Oakland from Pacific Grove in 2010. She has always been honest and straight forward in her dealings with us. In April 2015 we contacted her again to determine if we were in a position to buy a home. From the moment we met with her (she also had a Mortgage Officer in the meeting so that we could gather as much information in the first meeting, saving us time and energy). She took the time to get to know what we wanted in a home; location, cost, size etc. and we felt at ease with knowing what our next steps would be. Within a few days we knew that we could by a home (YEAH!) and the how much we were qualified to borrow. Elisa began giving us ideas in the first meeting, and again , because she knows the market, was very up front in letting us know where we would be able to purchase a home. This was very helpful information to know up front. I must say that I was not that excited about the prospects and had my own ideas about where to look, however in the end, we were able to buy a home that was best for us, in the area she suggested in our first meeting. The process of buying a home, especially in this market, is not easy . With Elisa there to guide and support you in every step; answering questions about all aspects of the process from going to open houses, inspections, disclosures, putting in an offer, and waiting for the acceptance, (this was the most challenging for us), we felt her support by listening to our concerns and helping us to get comfortable with the process. A closer relationship was developed with Elisa during the purchase of our home and I belief that Elisa takes care to develop a unique relationship with each of her clients. Thank you again Elisa, Ardell

Elisa recently helped me sell my home at a challenging time of year - it was listed just before Thanksgiving. I can't recommend her highly enough! She was on top of the whole process, and brokered an excellent transaction on my behalf. I always felt that she did her utmost to make everything go smoothly. When issues came up, she was right there with solutions. Her advice was right on, every step of the way. I put my trust in her and was never disappointed. Her kindness, caring, and understanding got me through what could have been a much more stressful time. When she says, "I'm here for you," she means it! If you want outstanding service from your realtor, go with Elisa Uribe.

I worked with Elisa for the past 6 months on several properties, her local knowledge very impressive, she is always online to respond to emails and text. Elisa took the time to know me and my family very well and understand our needs, more important she has my best interest at heart, when we were going around showing me properties, immediately she let me know the ones will not be of a good fit. I wouldn't ask for a better agent and friend from Elisa.

Elisa was a big help to us when we purchased the home we had been renting for the previous two years. We were in a time crunch because the seller wanted to move quickly and she had us in escrow within 26 hours with all of our inspections booked. In addition, she kept on top of our loan company when the appraisal hadn't been set up in a timely manner. All in all, our experience was very smooth and we would highly recommend her.

Elisa provided excellent, enthusiastic and professional real estate expertise in the Berkeley and extended area for us. She was always available and had ready answers to most of our questions and was able to quickly find the answers to the rest. I felt that I could totally trust Elisa throughout our search, offer negotiations and closing. When it comes time to sell, Elisa will be the first person we turn to.

Elisa was a wonderful representative! Being a first time buyer, she really took the time to meet and understand mine and my family’s needs. Elisa provided a thoughtful questionnaire, which covered topics both my partner and I needed to answer, which made us aware of what each other were looking for and streamlined our search. She understood the market climate and was patient with all of our requests to find out details about houses we were interested in. When it came time for us to sit down and bid on our home, she explained each detail on what to expect and timing, plus answered all our questions along the way. After we won the bid (thanks, Elisa!), she explained again all details surrounding title, loan, appraisal, contingencies, inspections - even having the inspectors on call in the event we did in fact win the bid and everything else in-between! Elisa certainly went above and beyond to the point after all transactions were complete, my loan officer extended his appreciation and noted her as one of the best he’s ever worked with. She is truly amazing and I look forward in working with her again in the future. You won’t be disappointed!

Let's start by saying A+! When it was determined that I should hire a residential property manager in Oakland, I must admit I was rather apprehensive about the prospect of hiring the right person for my needs. I'm fair, honest and loyal and was looking for the same. From the get go Elisa was simply masterful. I had questions, and Elisa had the answers and communicated them to me in such a way that I knew that she would be perfect. I would highly recommend Elisa for property management. I am hopeful that when I look back at this review 10 years from now, Elisa is still my property manager. I will conclude the way I started, A+!

Elisa was absolutely wonderful with me. She was incredibly supportive, kind, and patient with my questions. As a VA home buyer, I had a little idea of the process, but Elisa walked me through the process and made it feel easy. She worked well with the lender and scrow to make sure everything went smoothly. She was truly dedicated in representing me, and I always felt she was on my side looking out for my interests. I highly recommend Elisa, and I would have her represent me again in the future. RZ

We were referred to Wells & Bennett Realtors by a good friend. Elisa Uribe was the agent assigned to us. We called, set up an appointment and met her at our home a week later. We immediately liked her and felt at ease as we discussed the plans for putting our house that we have lived in for over 30 years for sale. Throughout this whole process she has been resourceful, thorough, knowledgeable and very professional. We appreciate everything she has done for us. We recommend Elisa to anyone interested in selling their house. I used Elisa Uribe a second time to help me purchase my first home before I travelled aboard. It was stressful trying to get the purchase completed before vacation however Elisa was so helpful and hard working that we were able to accomplish the purchase before my travels. I truly appreciate her efforts. Elisa is very professional, skillful and energetic. I highly recommend her.

Elisa is on top of her game and easy to work with. She recently helped me sell a my contemporary Oakland Hills home with: 1) a smart and timely sales/marketing strategy; 2) attention to detail regarding how to present the house and property; and, 3) attentive research and understanding of the current market. She is professional and her client service is prompt, honest, and straightforward. There were no guessing games with the status of the transaction at any stage. As the opportunities arise, I will be recommending Elisa to the people I care about: family, friends, and colleagues.

I found Elisa almost by accident several years ago as I was looking to rent the home my grandmother could no longer live in. After managing a renovation on the home from a distant town, I called Wells &Bennett realtors (the realtors my grandparents and parents had used many years ago) inquiring whether they did property management and was connected to Elisa. After a short time talking with her and meeting her at the house, I knew she was the right person for the job. I found her to be amazingly straightforward, knowledgeable, and professional as well she beams with an enthusiastic can-do attitude. She quickly found quality tenants. She is a great communicator and has a very common sense approach to addressing issues that arise as well as being proactive on those items that can be addressed ahead of time. She is very responsive and she makes taking care of rental property from a distant location very easy. Recently, my grandmother’s long time rental property was vacated. The moment I found out the tenants were leaving, I contacted Elisa giving her this second property to manage. She has an arsenal of contacts and did an amazing job updating the house, getting it ready to put back on the rental market after a continuous 30 year rental. She is highly organized and efficient and had contractors lined up in succession based on the type of work being conducted. Once the house was ready for viewing, she marketed it and again quickly found quality tenants. Elisa is a professional in every sense of the word. All of my correspondence with Elisa has been timely, productive, effective, and very professional. I HIGHLY (!) recommend Elisa for property management services.
