Donna McElwee works with Scott McElwee as a husband and wife team with a combined 28 years’ experience in real estate in the Sound Shore Area. Donna grew up in Rye on Milton Point and then Donna & Scott returned to raise their family here and have lived in Rye for over 31 years. They have an in-depth knowledge of all that Rye and its surrounding communities of Harrison, Rye Brook, Port Chester and Greenwich have to offer. Donna & Scott find that working as a team they can offer their clients a unique opportunity to always be available to meet all of their needs when buying and selling a home.

When working with Buyers this team can easily accommodate their clients’ schedules with two agents able to show properties, be present at time of inspections and help facilitate the contract and closing process. Donna & Scott are both well versed with the inventory in their market areas and can offer valuable market analysis when negotiating. They feel it is very important to keep their buyers well informed with immediate Market Updates alerting their clients to new listings, price improvements, homes that have gone into contract, as well as closing prices. Donna & Scott want to find you the house of your dreams and to make the process as painless as possible along the way.

When working with Sellers, their goal is to present your home to the market at its very best, from a pricing standpoint as well as the actual presentation of the home. Donna & Scott with financial backgrounds from previous careers take a very analytical approach to pricing your home. They assess the overall current market, the local market and the location and condition of your home relative to others currently on the market and those that have recently sold. They feel pricing your home properly is imperative to a successful sale. Donna, a Certified Staging Professional, can make suggestions that will ensure that your home will be showcased at its very best for photography& videos, open houses and showings. Buyers are very particular today and have high expectations when they step through the door of your home.

You will find Donna & Scott on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram as they believe in sharing interesting information and resources to enhance your lifestyle and enjoyment of your home here in Westchester County and Greenwich. They recognize that social media is a major driving force in the way we all interact today. When listing your home they know how to maximize these social media platforms to increase your exposure online and target potential buyers of your home.

Most of all, the most important thing you need to know about Donna & Scott is that they are committed to helping you achieve your real estate goals with the highest level of professionalism, integrity and confidentiality.
