Testimonial - The Pines at Boca Del Mar in Boca Raton FL "As I shared in my previous review of June 2016, Elyse and I have known each other since 2014.  At that time, we had relocated from NY to Florida, and she helped us find a wonderful house to rent.  Having lived in Boca Raton for almost three years, and become familiar with the different communities, my husband and I had very specific criteria of the home we wanted to purchase.  We were looking for a home in one of two communities - where homes seldom come up for sale.  The house had to have 4 bedrooms, at least 2 bathrooms, more than 2000 square feet, a pool and an open lay-out.  I was set on finding a home where I could see straight through to the pool when I walked in the door.  Tall order, I know.Luckily, not for Elyse!  She di...

Hey there, we're Gundi, Tash and Boris.  We moved to Boca Raton, Florida because our mom and dad told us that's where we were going. Who were we to argue?  They surfed the web and found a pet-friendly Realtor in Boca who loves dogs.  So they emailed her.  Mom and Dad and the pet-friendly Realtor really liked each other, so they went to look at some pet friendly gated communities in Boca Raton FL  See, there are three of us, so this was not an easy task.  As the lady Realtor told us, pet friendly housing can sometimes be hard to find.  Many gated communities only take two dogs, but we're a trio.  And  gated communities have all kinds of restrictions.   Mom and Dad went to look at some pet-friendly homes for sale in Boca Raton FL.   Nothing seemed to fit the bill until they saw this one g...

Setting the stage for your buyersStaging your home refers to the presentation you want your home to show prospective buyers. First impressions go a long way and you want to leave a positive one. There is a lot of advice out there on staging your home for a quick sale. Let's keep it simple and basic: Remove excess personal items Clear away the clutter Clean Fresh Paint Remove excess personal itemsRemoving any excess personal items will help the buyers envision themselves in a new home. It's not inappropriate to have some pictures of the family around. However, remember that you want your house to appeal to potential new owners, not just yourselves. Even an impressive and neat collection of, for example, items from your favorite sports team, can be a distraction and take the focus away fr...

Great Realtor Experience in Palm Beach County, FL       How would you feel if you referred a client to a Realtor outside of your area, and at the end of the client's home purchase, they described the Realtor like this: "She was absolutely amazing.  I'm so glad you referred her to us, she was God sent!"      I bet you'd feel pretty good, happy for the client, and sure that you've found a great Realtor to work with. If you need a Realtor in Palm Beach County, FL or the surrounding areas, you can rest assured that ActiveRain's own  Elyse Berman, PA, CRS is an option you will not regret trusting clients, friends, and family with.        In this scenario I had pre-approved the buyer last summer, but they needed a good agent to guide them through the process as first time buyers that were uns...

On Monday morning, we put Buttons to sleep.  She became critically ill and went downhill very fast.  Buttons came to us at 5 months old.  She just celebrated her 14th birthday on January 1st.  We took her to our vet who asked to do an X-ray and some blood work before we made any decisions.  She had acute pancreatitis, fever of 105, was breathing on one lung and some other issue with her stomach, that we feel was cancer. She was in terrible pain. Vet told us even if she was able to stabilize her from the pancreatitis and bring her fever down, we would then have to deal with her lung issue, which could be fluid or cancer, as well as her stomach issue, which could be the same.  She went on to say that given her age, mortality was high. We really had no choice.  Buttons hated being poked, p...
