"Listed our cottage with Elissa and it sold very quickly for over asking price. Elissa – professional , personable, problem solver, who goes that extra mile to ensure your property listing experience is positive."
"I was fortunate enough to have been introduced to Elissa when I was looking for a cottage in the Huntsville area. She took my priorities and did all the leg work by checking out all properties herself, weeding out the ones she knew wouldn’t be right for me then setting up viewing appointments to see them all in a very time efficient manner. She has a lovely sales approach… never any pressure just advice when asked. Great experience from beginning to end. AND she never forgets to send me tickets for the cottage show every year since … Highly recommended!"

"Working with Elissa was an absolute pleasure. She is very professional and helped us navigate through the process of purchasing a family cottage. Elissa was very in tune with what we wanted in a family getaway and helped us identify the different elements of cottage life that would be beneficial. We highly recommend Elissa as a professional real estate agent who always looks after the best interests of her clients, and we look forward to working with her again in the future."
"It is a pleasure to work with Elissa as our realtor. She listens to our needs and doesn’t waste our time with showings which don’t meet our criteria. She is not pushy or extolling virtues of a property which has obvious faults. She was able to quickly close on our vacation property even though the seller was in Alaska! Elissa is a true professional and a valuable asset in our present search for a retirement property."
"Kim and I just wanted to share our great experience when purchasing our first cottage. Dealing with Elissa Boughen as our agent made the experience extremely easy. We were very selective and she was extremely patient with us. Elissa is very polite, thorough, provided us with great research, readily available, gave us excellent follow up and was extremely helpful. She possesses fantastic qualities as an agent and we would definitely partner with her again. We highly recommend Elissa to anyone that is in need of or selling a home, property and or cottage."
"Elissa, Kim and I would like to express our gratitude in helping us find our dream cottage!!"
