Testimonial

  • My partner and I just closed on our house in April of 2022. As first-time home buyers, we needed a lot of guidance through the process. Jodi Elliot was there to help us every step of the way. While we were looking at places she had a lot of great pointers for what to be aware of. She was patient with us while we were figuring out what was most important for us. From explaining and reminding us of next steps to putting us in touch with a great local inspector and other specialists, Jodi’s assistance was invaluable. She was consistently responsive to all of our inquiries. She was able to quickly negotiate a credit for all needed repairs. Jodi really made our first experience of buying a home as enjoyable and stress-free as we could have possibly hoped for.
  • I just can't say enough good things about Jodi. She's organized, smart, personable and also really knows the area well. We've used her as our agent twice now, and would highly recommend her.
  • We were very happy with our experience.
  • Being both laid-back and determined might seem like a contradiction, but that combination is one of Jodi Elliott's strengths. When showing us houses, she gave us the space we needed to evaluate each home on our own terms before chiming in with her own observations. Once we ready to submit an offer, however, she was steadfast in her pursuit of answers to any and all questions we had. I will also add we found that her own experience of living in different communities and even a different country informs her perspective in a way that we found very helpful. I've already recommended Jodi to friends and would not hesitate to work with her again.
  • Jodi was a dream to work with as I planned for a big move and first-time home ownership, all in the midst of our Covid pandemic! Jodi was responsive, listened very attentively and offered multiple options and ways of thinking through big decisions, and approached every situation with wonderful humor. I especially appreciated her willingness to meet with me in person several times and at length when I was in town on a tight timeline when searching for a home (not yet living in Oregon). After I found my ideal home, Jodi was also a terrific partner in recommending ancillary services where I asked. I enthusiastically recommend Jodi!
  • We moved to Corvallis last year from the SF Bay Area. When we initially spoke with Jodi she was honest and informative about what to expect in this market, and at the same time encouraging about the possibilities of finding the right house for us. Jodi is a skillful listener and observer and is very good at identifying the available properties that most closely match her clients needs and preferences. Together we saw a lot of properties, and a few that we strongly considered placing offers on. Each time Jodi gathered the relevant information to help inform our decision and how to best position ourselves if we were to make an offer. Along the way she helped us stay patient until we found our house, where we now happily live. She is exceptional at successfully navigating this complicated market for her clients and is a really wonderful person to boot! We highly recommend her.
  • We recently sold our house with Jodi in a very hot market and with a few unforeseen pressures, but you would not know it. Jodi's professionalism and grace was our guiding light through the entire selling process. After (several) stops and starts and bumps in the road during the sale, she stayed steady and clear on her goal of getting us the best price and the best buyer. I'm grateful to know her and to have worked with her through this process. Her skill and drive cannot be undersold.
  • We are beyond thrilled with Jodi's market knowledge, negotiation prowess and concierge level of service. As a professional REALTOR®, I expect a lot. Jodi totally exceeded our expectations. In addition to procuring a home in a multiple offer situation, we also gained a new friend in Jodi!
  • Unbelievably good REALTOR®. She was able to get a sense for our taste in homes VERY quickly and did a great job guiding our search. We were able to get the home we wanted for under listing and were able to sell our home for way over listing. I also appreciated how she made everything very straightforward for me since I was a first-time homebuyer. I would absolutely request her services again if we end up having to buy/sell in the area in the future.
  • Jodi "got" us right away - and found us the perfect home in a desirable and potentially difficult market, in record time. Realtor.com lists five categories to be rated and Jodi easily rates 5 stars in each. But what really makes Jodi stellar are her amazingly quick and intuitive understanding of her clients and their needs; her honesty, and her genuine care for her clients' wellbeing throughout the process of buying a home. Jodi's sense of humor, her concern, and her attention to detail eliminated so much of the stress of moving to a new state, that the experience has been - dare we say it? - fun! Would recommend her unreservedly to buyers and sellers alike.
  • Jodi is flawlessly professional, working tirelessly for her client. She helped us through a tricky process with many ups and downs, and ended up landing a deal for us to get more than the asking price! She is excellent to work with, knows the area well, and has very valuable connections and advice.
  • We moved to Corvallis during COVID from the Midwest, our goal was to locate a home as soon as possible. A friend of ours suggested a few names, and Jodi was one of them. We looked up her bio from the company website and felt she could be the person helping us in finding our home in Corvallis. She did not disappoint us. Jodi was knowledgeable and offered strong analysis and feedback on the Corvallis real estate market. Jodi was professional throughout the entire process. She was extremely organized during every house visit. Her initial meeting thoroughly explained the contract, and she was detailed and task oriented once we were under contract during the inspection phase. Her efforts and professionalism were present throughout the entire process. This is our 7th house that we have purchased, we have worked with many realtors from the Midwest to the west coast. Jodi certainly exceeded our expectations.
  • Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Jodi was extremely responsive even during odd hours and she demonstrated a strong work ethic (we had some marathon days of house showings, inspections, etc). Additionally, she did a great job negotiating a deal that was beyond what I had hoped. Will definitely be working with her in the future.
  • Jodi did an outstanding job helping us navigate the entire home buying process. She is a great communicator, patient, and always offered sound advice. Her diligence during the inspection and repair negotiations period helped us to finalize the deal. We couldn't be happier with our investment or with the service we received from Jodi.
  • Jodi was an invaluable help in selling our home after we moved a state away and needed a REALTOR® who could be extra hands-on to ensure that the property was kept in good condition for showing and received maximum exposure. She was very attentive and communicative, and we would use her services again in a heartbeat.
  • Jodi was very helpful in working with the seller's representative on the purchase of a rental property. We worked with Jodi and the seller's representative to address house repairs prior to the sale. Jodi was also very responsive for getting access approvals, setting up the property inspection, executing the contract documents, and completing the sale at a local title company. She accommodated our schedule throughout the process.
  • Jodi really shone after we decided to put an offer on our house. She was so laid back and accommodating during all the house showings, and then really shone with all the details and paperwork. She had great communication all the way to the end and made numerous calls on our behalf to contractors/vendors to keep the process moving forward. I couldn’t recommend her more highly, and will definitely be calling her for our next home purchase.
  • I moved to Corvallis and was in a hurry to settle in a new house with my family. Jodi took the time to learn about what we needed, then was able to pinpoint several good options for us. She helped negotiate a tough deal on a house with lots of fixing up required. She was also fun to work with - along with being good at her job, she is a fun person to spend time with. I will recommend Jodi to anybody in Corvallis looking for an agent.
