As a year 30-year full time Realtor in Lake San Marcos and a longtime resident, Elaine is a consistent multimillion-dollar producer.  Her success is attributed to her warm personality, passion, honest communication with her Clients and associates, excellent negotiation skills and her diligence in meeting deadlines.  When you work with Elaine, she tells you, “You are now stuck with me for life”.  She treats you like family and makes her clients a priority, developing lasting friendships in the process.

In September of 1988 a friend from Idaho, whom she had worked with in Idaho real estate, convinced Elaine to move to Lake San Marcos and work with her.  Elaine came to visit the Lake and while here for a short visit, she sold her home in Idaho with a scheduled close in 3 weeks, found a place to live and got the office manager position with the real estate company where her friend was a top Lake San Marcos agent. Elaine was so inspired by the Lake community, yet at that time she was only 38 years old, too young to live in this 55+ community. She was able to work along side her friend, holding several open houses a week.  Her time was spent establishing strong, trusting relationships with community residents which has been the steppingstone to her present day success.

Kohlman and various others.  She also enjoys golfing, kayaking and boating.
