Mrs. VonCannon is very knowledgeable about the local market as well as the home buying and selling process - two of my experiences using her services. She is responsive to questions and dedicated to matching your needs with the right resources. I will continue to recommend her to those I know for their real estate needs!

I have known Elaine for 20 years and have used her to buy 2 homes. I never thought to ask anyone else to help me with my most important purchases. Knowing very little about the process, I couldn't have been in better hands throughout. Whether you're buying or selling, I highly recommend using Elaine, as she always gets the closing done.

We had the opportunity to work with Elaine in selling a Townhouse for us which was located in Williamsburg, Virginia. She was very honest with us. She respected our position and did her best to accommodate us. She was time conscious in meeting us on time and performing the transaction to the best of her ability. She sold our property in three days. We were happy with her performance. Andrew and Yvonne Cypress

Elaine is a very professional agent. She knows real estate. I had a house a few years ago that just would not sell and Elaine sold it in three (3) months. She is now in the process of selling my home in Lancaster and I feel sure she will find a buyer soon. She is wonderful to work with. Thank you Elaine.

Thank you to Elaine Von Cannon! She has not only been my property manager, she has been an advocate for making necessary repairs to the property I rent. Elaine is very hard working and I've valued her help.

I have worked with Elaine for more than 18 years. I am an investor and we have purchased homes, flipped homes, sold homes and she handles my property management for me. I do not worry about anything that has to do with my transactions as when we flip properties, Elaine chooses everything that goes into the property, as well as she oversees the contractors who are doing the work. Elaine also goes and checks in on the properties every 10 days. In property management she sends in contractors to do work if needed, gets the home rented in a timely manner so there is little or no gap between tenants. Elaine keeps me informed on all areas of our transactions. I refer Elaine to anyone who talks to me about real estate. You can not go wrong if you use Elaine for all of your real estate needs.

Over the 12 years we have had the privilege of working with Elaine, she has become more than a property manager to us. She is knowledgeable, professional, treats matters confidentially, and has the best interest of us the tenants as well as the property owners at heart. That is sometimes a tricky situation for her, but she remains unflappable. Elaine values you, your money and your time and will work hard for you. We enjoy working with Elaine and if ever in a position to do so, would buy a house through her without question. We certainly would rent through her again.

I was very happy with the way I was treated throughout the whole process. Being a first time buyer there was a lot of things that i didnt know and Elaine was very patient with all the questions that I had. We found the house I wanted and she was very helpful in making it a fast and easy process all the way through closing and moving in. I would recommend Elaine to anyone that is interested in buying or selling!

Not only is Elaine VonCannon knowledgeable in Real Estate she is an awesome property manager too! She saved me thousands of dollars on my home purchase through her wonderful negotiation skills. She keeps you informed and up to date from contract to close. When is comes to property management she works hard for her landlords. She keeps the properties top notch and is fast with repairs. She is the agent you want and need to have on your side when it comes to any aspect of Real Estate.

Elaine has been my property manager for almost 8 years now and I couldnt be any happier with her. She always takes care of everything to the point I worry about nothing. I would enthusiastically recommend her services to anyone.

Elaine helped me find the property of my dreams and was on top of everything from start to finish. I found that she very rarely has a closing not happen, because she knows how to handle every situation. She is one of the most dedicated people in the industry and seems to love what she does. I have used her for property management for 11 years now and found that she will answer the phone anytime of the day immediately addressing any situation that comes up for me or the tenant. She checks my property every quarter to make sure the tenants are taking care of it. I highly recommend her to anyone one that needs residential or commercial real estate and property management.

Elaine has been my real estate agent for quite some time now. She handles my property management, as well as any transactions for investing that I have been interested in.

Bob and I just adore Elaine. She helped us find a home with lots of room and acreage. We also used her to sell our home in the Colonies. She was a great neighbor to have, and an even more wonderful friend. She was always looking in on our home while we were away and kept us up to date on any changes during the sale of it. We are satisfied with her as a realtor and still keep in touch! -Barb S.

Elaine has sold us a house and sold a house for us as well. She is one of my dearest friends and keeps me updated on all the market trends when it comes to selling and buying homes. I have relied on her several times for answers to the overall changing trends and rules in real estate. I always look forward to learning new information about real estate as well!

Elaine sold me my first home. I was so excited and nervous at the same time that I nearly didn't sign the deal! I love my new home! Elaine was dedicated and professional about finding me a home that not only fit my needs but also met my budget. Best of all I fell in love with it before I even went inside! -Saniiya

Elaine helped me and my sister buy our first home. It was difficult because of a language barrier. Somehow, Elaine understood what we were asking even when we didn't know the words in English. Thank you!

Elaine has not only sold my husband and I, our most recent home, but is also selling our previous home. She kept us updated when we bought our new home on what was needed and answered all of our questions. She continues to keep us updated on showings and details about the sale of our previous home while we finish with the sale process.
