Testimonials for Elizabeth Tucker
Home Buyers, 201707/31/2017
“Elizabeth walked us step-by-step through the home buying process so we felt very well taken care of. During our dealings an opportunity arose in our desired area unexpectedly, Elizabeth was able to secure our wonderful new home. Buying a home is such a deep personal experience, Elizabeth took great care to understand our needs and desires; I couldn’t be happier and more at ease with Elizabeth’s guidance with what would normally be a very stressful transaction.”
Home Buyers/Home Sellers, 201703/24/2017
“From the moment we met Elizabeth during a casual visit to an Open House we knew we’d found the right Realtor. From the very beginning she opened our eyes to so many details about the homes we were looking at, using her depth of experience to highlight items we would otherwise have missed through our inexperience.
We were considering a move from big city to smaller town within Silicon Valley. We had not moved in many years. Elizabeth shared with us how to evaluate potential homes with an eye for value, hidden risk, and potential, and educated us on the types of maintenance requirements and long term issues we might expect to see with the types of properties we were looking at.
Elizabeth was always thoroughly prepared. Each time we considered making an offer she read through every report ahead of time then read through again with us, explaining each item. She brought up concerns about potential difficulties in the transaction, helped read between the lines with each situation, and protected us from making mistakes.
Several deals got very complicated, but Elizabeth was able to help us navigate through each, always with detailed and timely communication, helping set expectations and prepare us for what might happen.
Elizabeth was able to read the market and guide us through a fantastic deal on a gorgeous home that was originally way above our price point. She did her homework and negotiated a final sale price that was actually below market! We got into the home of our dreams at an unbelievable price thanks to Elizabeth! Each day we come home we pinch ourselves at our good Fortune!
In preparation for selling our home Elizabeth walked the property and provided an honest, professional evaluation that helped us decide how much and what sort of prep we should do to get our best possible price. She pulled from her team of capable contractors and service providers, negotiated prices, met inspectors and contractors, and made the process as easy as possible for us. She provided fabulous Staging and exquisite professional Photography to market our home to its fullest potential.
The purchase of our new home was contingent upon the sale of our existing home, so timing was critical. Elizabeth guided us on pricing our house in the current marketplace to attract more buyers, and she read the market well as this brought in a high volume of interested buyers that competed for our home, negotiating a professional transaction that ultimately made us and a wonderful young family very happy.
Two weeks before our new home was to close, water got into the home and severely damaged the hardwood flooring. Elizabeth took control and had contractors and inspectors out on site as soon as she heard. Elizabeth handled everything, the floors were repaired and we closed on time. She earned every cent of her Commission!
Elizabeth did not stop working for us when papers were signed and the property Closed. We moved into our new home during a big rainstorm, and the roof leaked the very first night, which was the Friday night of a holiday weekend. We immediately called Elizabeth, and she had a crew on site at 7:00am the next day. The leak was fixed under warranty and didn’t cost us a dime! Without Elizabeth we would not have known what to do or who to call, but she took care of everything.
On the third day in our new home a big rainstorm caused a large Redwood tree to fall over onto a fence and into our new neighbors yard, with a second Redwood leaning right toward our house. Elizabeth got to work right away setting up contractors! The next morning she met contractors, negotiated prices, and the leaning tree was removed the same day before the next storm hit. Even though her work as a Real Estate Agent was complete, Elizabeth never stopped working for us. She took care of everything, using her experience in the industry and her relationships with reputable contractors to get the work done quickly and at a great price.
I don’t know what we would have done without her! Elizabeth is a true Professional and we highly recommend her!

Elizabeth is a pleasure to work with. She's very knowledgeable about the market, very high energy, very organized, communicates well, and very helpful in avoiding pitfalls. We were both selling our house and buying a new one, which made the whole process that much more complicated. She did an amazing job communicating all the details and then guiding us through the process. I can't think of anything else she could have done differently. Very happy with how everything turned out. She had a good appreciation for what an emotional process this was for us, and did a great job of helping us through it. Very solid agent all around.

Elizabeth was a great agent to work with on my complex, time-sensitive transaction. In today's environment, it's hard to find an agent who listens, understands, and works with you to make your dreams come true. Elizabeth worked really hard, stayed focused and got the deal done on both sides, selling my home within a matter of days and at the price I needed, and managing the buyer-agent process. She was not afraid to dive in, was in frequent communication, and was extremely persistent to help me realize my dream of buying a home in Los Gatos.
