BERLIN - From her support for hometown heroes to the personal service she gives all clients, it’s no wonder that local residents have continually declared Elaine Pavasaris and her company, “Home Sweet Home Realty,” Best Real Estate Agent in Berlin.
“I work really hard at what I do and I try to give the best possible service to my clients,” Pavasaris said. “Selling a home can be stressful, I try to make it as easy as possible for clients. I take a lot of pride in what I do.”
Her hallmark has been the personal service she’s provided clients, whether they are buying, selling or leasing a home, during the 12 years since she started “Home Sweet Home Realty” located at 359 Main St., Berlin.
Her firm can provide all the services a large company can but with an extra personal touch.
“It’s very rewarding to work with people who are buying their first home,” she said. Pavasaris is very community oriented and is a past president of the Kensington/Berlin Rotary Club where she now serves as the membership chairwoman.
She has continually volunteered within the community and sought donations of food and clothing for organizations like the Salvation Army where she and other volunteers serve lunch the first Sunday of every month from November to March.
She is also instrumental in the fundraising drive to raise money to purchase every local third grader in town a hardbound dictionary which they can keep. They give away 200 to 300 each year, she said.
Pavasaris has a special connection to veterans. This Veterans Day she will be in Washington, D.C., to read the name of her brother and 29 others who died in the Vietnam War as part of the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Wall Memorial.
She recently started a Heroes Home Advantage program which allows veterans, teachers, firefighters, police officers, health care professionals and first responders to buy a home with the help of a team including an attorney, a Realtor, a loan officer, a title company, a home inspector and a homeowners insurance company that are all willing to give qualifying area residents a discount on their services.
She’s worked with seven or eight “hometown heroes” in the first year she participated in the program.
She was recently voted “Best Real Estate Agent” by the readers of the Berlin Citizen.
