The process of buying or selling a house can be easy and successful. Elaine has over 25 years of professional experience in management primarily with finance, architecture and construction firms involved in real estate ventures. With the knowledge she gained working many aspects of a business deal, Elaine believes that working with informed clients makes for a winning transaction.

Elaine’s goal is to build a relationship with her clients to understand their particular needs so that she can focus her efforts effectively on their behalf. Her involvement with various organizations provides her with valuable information to share with her clients regarding the local communities, schools, town scene, etc. She has listed and sold homes in Montclair, Glen Ridge, Verona, Bloomfield, West Orange, the Caldwells, Short Hills, Millburn, Maplewood, Clifton, Ridgewood and many other towns in Essex, Morris and Bergen counties.

To remain a top expert in real estate, Elaine attends numerous professional seminars annually and keeps current her affiliations with the National Association of Realtors, the NJ Association of Realtors, the West Essex Board of Realtors and is also a member of both the Garden State and the New Jersey MLS.

Elaine moved from Park Slope, Brooklyn to Upper Montclair some 20 years ago and admits that she was concerned about missing the diversity in people, cultures and food that she so loved about the city. She quickly realized that living here gave her the best of city living in a more user friendly environment and she has never looked back!

Elaine resides in Upper Montclair with her partner and son where she enjoys being involved in local and regional organizations including the Montclair Special Education Parent Advisory Council (PAC), Relay for Life, Dress for Success, Rainbow Families of New Jersey (RFNJ), UMDNJ Medial Students & Families Awareness Program, NJ Center for Outreach and Services for the Autism Community (COSAC), Autism Speaks and Autism Now.

Professionally, Elaine is a member of the West Essex Board of Realtors where she has served on several committees, including Realtors Political Action Committee, Grievance Committee and Realtor of the Year. As a relocation director, Elaine is involved with The New York Metro Group and Women in Relocation.

Elaine regularly presents Home Buying and Home Selling classes through the Adult School of Montclair and at area libraries and NYC forums. Elaine has a graduate degree from Syracuse University and is fluent in Arabic.

“I believe that home is sacred and that it is a privilege to assist someone with buying or selling a home,” notes Elaine. “It’s not just about the transaction. My focus is to connect with clients, earn their respect and to be a positive part of their real estate experience. If clients trust our working relationship, they will feel confident to refer their friends and family to me. That is the best acknowledgement of a job well done”. It’s that attitude that people expect and appreciate when working with Elaine.

Testimonials

“Elaine Pardalos is an elite advisor and advocate who has been indispensable in purchasing our new home. From the moment we started exploring houses, we knew Elaine was in our corner. She took the time to understand what we wanted and our priorities for the process. Then, each week, she sent high-quality listings as soon as they came out, mapped a plan for the week, and arranged private viewings in which she made sure we considered all angles. She was ultra-responsive, dedicated, and proactive, taking untold steps behind the scenes to nudge the process along…We had “dated” other real estate agents, and it was obvious from the outset that Elaine brought something different and far superior to the table.

One of Elaine’s great assets is that she is very sophisticated about the market and how to manage the entire process as a buyer. She drew on her strong experience and instincts to give us expert advice about how to price and structure competitive bids, how to conduct thorough and comprehensive inspections, and how to handle post-inspection negotiations. Elaine always gave us information and strategies that were in our best interest. This was often contrary to her own immediate financial interest: pointing out unappealing features of homes that we might have overlooked, avoiding overbidding, and being willing to walk away from a potential deal. This showed such professionalism and integrity and ethics, and it confirmed from an early stage that we could always trust her.

Elaine made us feel secure by charting us through every turbulent water, and it is not overstatement to say she is the reason we have our home. We love her, we are profoundly grateful to her, and we give her our fullest endorsement to family, friends, or strangers looking to buy an Essex County home.” – Jeremy & Dorrie

“As first-time homebuyers, Elaine was exactly who we were looking for. She was effective, professional, and highly responsive to all of our questions.

“It’s easy to recommend Elaine – she’s a terrific agent. I appreciate her work…I’ve not always had good experiences with agents. I now understand that not all agents work in the same way. She is a professional.” - M.K., Clifton

“I worked with Elaine a few times. She helped me buy my first condo and then helped my wife and I sell it and buy a house. She then helped us sell that house and referred us to an agent in No. Carolina when we moved. She made sure we were in good hands and stayed in contact until we were moved in!” - J. M. & R. S.M., No. Carolina
