We were in an upside-down financial situation in our home because of a weak housing marking and because we hadn’t been living in our home very long. We tried to sell our home on our own for several months. We placed ads in the Columbus Dispatch and also posted flyers at my work. Come to think of it, we spent almost the same in our attempt to get our home sold by our selves as Joan’s total flat fee charge. Wish we would have found her first and saved the time and cost of trying to sell by owner. Within 3 weeks we had an almost full price offer on the home. To anyone living in the Central Ohio area we would strongly recommend selling your home through Joan Elflein. We got better service, advise, and results from Joan than we have from any of our previous full-price (3%) national brand Real Estate agents. Joan was very responsive, anytime we wanted to reach her we could. We either got her directly or she called back within one hour or less. We don’t know how she can afford to do what she does by only charging a flat fee, but we are the beneficiaries of a great decision to list with Joan. Joan is a nice person to work with and will help you to determine the best listing price and teach you anything you need to know to sell your house. We didn’t have to compromise anything we would have gotten from a national brand Real Estate agent. In fact in most cases we got more. We think Joan has got to be one of the best-kept secrets in Ohio . We consider Joan’s services to be one of our greatest blessings of the year.
