    Rapheal was professional, organized and most importantly kind in selling my mother's home after her passing. He was able to sell a difficult house. He was wonderful in guiding me in cleaning out the house and what needed to happen to ready the property. He negoiated a fair sale for our family. I have only wonderful things to say about Raphael. He sold our family home and became a friend.

    Raphael is a FANTASTIC real estate agent! My husband and I were in a bind and a rush to purchase a home and we were first time home buyers. Raph immediately made himself available to sit down and look at options and lay out a proper time frame for us to purchase in. We found our house on our first day of looking at properties. He found us a home that was in great condition, at a great price, and close to our jobs. He was able to negotiate the price down on the house for us and helped us secure the house. I was TERRIFIED of the home buying process, and he made it a smooth and simple process. We have been living in our home for 2 years now and still cannot get enough of it! He made himself available whenever we had a question and was able to answer promptly. His professionalism and dedication was top notch! Raphael Elison will always be the only name out of my mouth when someone is looking for an agent. THANK YOU Raph!

    Raphael Elison helped us find our forever home in a very tight housing market. When we ran into some problems during the sale he stayed with us and went out of his way to resolve the issue. Raphael listens and communicates well and has a friendly and supportive style. We are very happy with our new home and grateful for Raphaels assistance.

    Raphael accompanied us through a 15 month, 11 month, pandemic-marred ordeal until we finally found our forever home. Throughout it all, Raph always had a smile on his face, always said yes, and never pressured us. His past as a contractor has given him a wealth of knowledge about construction and homes and we trusted his professional opinion completely. We can't recommend Raphael highly enough.

    Raphael was my agent when selling my parent's home after they had to unexpectedly move to assisted living. He was professional, knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, prompt - all of the things that you would expect a good real estate agent to be. But in addition, he was was kind, understanding, flexible, and eager to help. It was not an easy transition given the circumstances, and what could have been a supremely difficult and stressful transaction was made so much easier with Raphael's support. I felt like he really cared about our situation, and made the extra effort to make sure we were taken care of. I highly recommend Raphael and would use him again without hesitation.

    Do You Have Enough Homeowner's Insurance?

    Most mortgage lenders require homeowner's insurance. They want to make sure that if anything happens to your home, the balance of the loan is paid. But many people don't realize that they may need more coverage than what is required by the lender. Homeowner's insurance covers the actual structure of your home. Most policies also automatically cover your belongings that are in the home, up to a specified amount. But there are many factors to consider when determining whet...
