Testimonials for Elyse Berman, PA, CRS
Elyse Berman is very professional and knowledgeable in her field. Elyse was engaged and dedicate to selling my property and the whole process was painless. Elyse has a great personality and I recommend her without reservation.
I contacted Elyse in February 2014 to help us locate a house to rent in anticipation of our relocation from New York. She was so generous with her time and her knowledge of the Palm Beach County market. We have two dogs and a cat. I knew it would be challenging to identify a home that would allow pets. Throughout a period of four months, Elyse and I were in constant communication about available rentals. Finally, in July 2014 we identified a house rental in the area we wanted to live in, that is spacious, has a pool and accommodates our pets, and our family!
Now almost two years later, we are looking to purchase a home in the area. Elyse has been diligent and relentless in helping us with our search. She is knowledgeable, personable and possesses unmatched integrity. I have no doubt that with Elyse's help and expertise, we will soon find our dream home! I highly recommend Elyse to anyone looking to rent or to purchase a house! She is a consummate professional!
Since we were relocating from Pennsylvania, Elyse was invaluable as my representative in purchasing our home in Delray Beach. She answered all our questions and helped buying our house an easy transaction. We are still in touch and she is always ready to answer my questions and guide me in the right direction. I highly recommend her, she's a pleasure to work with

Elyse Berman is a dedicated professional who takes the time to understand her clients' needs and works tirelessly to meet their goals. She knows her makret and shares her expertise which was a real plus coming from out of state. Elyse's sincerity and positive attitude helped us find the house of our dreams.
The Internet is a nice aid when looking for an out-of-state home. However, it does not replace the skills and knowledge of a dedicated professional realtor like Elyse Berman. My husband and I are very fortunate to have found this devoted pet lover during one of our unenlightened Internet searches. We were unaware that many communities do not allow pets at all, limit pet numbers to one or two, or even reject certain breeds. Having three small dogs greatly reduced the number of houses available to us. Elyse is a pro at matching pet owners with the perfect commuhity and home for their unique situation.
It was reassuring to see how well prepared Elyse was every day. Every house and community we saw would work for us with few deletions to our "wants" list. Also, Elyse has an innate ability for understanding what clients want/need. We thougt we wanted an established home, but our facial reactions and comments said otherwise to Elyse after walking thorough homes we requested to see. Hindsight, we are elated that Elyse thew in a new construction complex to view. This pet-friendly community finally made two opposite thinking spouses agree that this was the "one" for our future. It took less than a total of one week of viewing houses to "hit the jackpot" with our soon-to-be home.
Elyse's level of professioanalism, knowledge and warmth is the ultimate. What a world of difference she makes! She graciously continues to answer phone calls to help former clients with a vast range of requests for needed information/suggestions. That is going above and beyond the sale. She is 100% polished professinal and a "constant giver" friend to all fortunate to find her when relocating.
I cannot imagine being as thrilled with any other Realtor.

My wife and I first contacted Elyse when her name came up during an internet search for pet friendly communities in Boca Raton as she herself is a long time pet owner. Initially, we asked her help for a seasonal rental with 2 small dogs. She said that it would be very challenging due to the many restrictions most of the communities have regarding the amount of pets, size and breed. However, she was kind enough to make some recommendations and we started our search. After a couple of months of searching for seasonal rentals that would allow 2 dogs, we realized there were just too many complications and restrictions, especially being out of state residents. Since it was really important to us at this point in our lives to spend more time in Florida with our dogs, we decided to use Elyse's many years of experience and expertise in the Boca/Delray area to help us purchase a second home in a pet friendly community.
We had some very specific requirements regarding location, size of the home and community amenities. It didn't take long for Elyse to help us zero in on two communities which fit most of our needs and ultimately, we chose the very intimate and pet friendly community of Santa Barbara, ideally located in central Boca. We just closed on our new home 10/29/2015. During every step of the process in finding the right home for us, Elyse was always extremely knowledgeable, professional and readily available to us by phone or email. As a court stenographer in her previous career, she is meticulous in every detail. She listened to our concerns about different properties and locations but would never push us in one direction or the other, leaving it up to us to make the final decisions.
In closing, we would highly recommend Elyse as someone honest and trustworthy to help you with your real estate needs. If you're a pet owner looking to purchase in Palm Beach County, then you really must contact her!

Elyse was fantastic from start to finish. She did a great job of putting together the MLS listing with effective photos, descriptions and positive features of the house and community. Once listed, she conducted about 14 showings in a very short time, one of which resulted in an offer and eventual purchase. Elyse's follow up throughout the process was fabulous, keeping everything on track and making sure that we did what we needed to do to move things along and meet our timeframe for closing. She understood the area and I believe presented us with good comparable sales that allowed us to price the property correctly. I would highly recommend her as a Realtor.

She makes the entire process less stressful.

Elyse helped me find my condo, I have a small dog and finding a really nice place that allowed the dog is difficult. She goes the extra step to listen to what the buyer is looking for only shows condos that meet the specific criteria. She worked me threw the hole process.
My husband and I have bought and sold houses around the world. We just recently did so in Florida.
Elyse was recommended by a friend in Los Angeles, and from the first time we met I knew she was a professional. I might add that we had met a few other agents before choosing her.
When an experienced professional takes charge of your home you feel support, understanding and safety.
Every detail was dealt with in advance of any possible problem. Elyse was calm and in charge through out the experience.
Her consideration of our home and belongings was kind and sensitive. We never felt any negativism or impatience.
She had a steady hand in dealing with prospective buyers and agents involved.
We were not in Florida during any of the negotiations, and always felt that Elyse had our interests completely covered.
The sale was fast and fastidious. All documents correct, and she always went above and beyond her professional limits.
I have never enjoyed this experience as much, and never felt so well looked after.
Thank you Elyse for a job extremely well done.
