Transaction Completed:

"The entire transaction was smooth and seem less. Ela and her team kept myself and our client updated on the loan process and we were able to close way early which made everyone involved very happy. I love that Ela keeps not only the buyer side updated but also is good about keeping the listing agent updated on everything. Huge bonus!"
