WHAT HER CLIENTS SAY…
“Elisabeth has style, energy and attention to detail, and great integrity in everything she does. Elisabeth came on recommendation and she lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Her experience showed through and particularly at some difficult points in our less than ordinary sale process and knowledge of the market was invaluable in securing a sale for us.”
“Our family couldn’t have been more fortunate than to find Elisabeth. She guided us through a home search, both rental and purchase options, in Santa Monica and beyond with grace, intelligence, wisdom and a welcome dash of wit. Hallmarks of working with Elisabeth are excellence, attention to detail, thoughtful conversation and constant professionalism.”
“We are from Europe, and Elisabeth has guided us with her good taste, great personality, and dedicated professionalism in our search for several houses. Each house was spot on. The transaction was seamless every time, and she took good care of us even after the deal was done. We highly recommend her.”
“Elisabeth is the most creative agent I have ever met. She saw the unique magic and beauty in our house because she has impeccable taste and was able to market it and execute the sale in a way that nobody else would have had the creativity to do. I knew from the moment I met her she was the only person who could handle the sale of our special house with the kind of attention to detail it deserved. She is kind and patient and really smart. She made me feel so comfortable and taken care of during a difficult process. I am so grateful to her and can’t imagine working with anybody else!”
“Elisabeth knew exactly what my husband and I needed and wanted in a new home. She paid attention to, and was mindful of my children’s needs as well. Not only did she find our new home quickly, she also sold our old house smoothly during the holiday season so that we could concentrate on school, work, family, and holiday preparations with zero worries. Now that we are settled into our new home, I am extra appreciative and grateful for Elisabeth’s expertise and consider her a blessing to our family.”
“When dealing in real estate, especially when it’s your own, we become so deeply invested. It is a very emotional, ego-driven aspect of our lives. The reasons for selling or buying or renting are rooted deeply to our core because a change is about to happen in our lives. Elisabeth understands this with great compassion and handles it with great empathy. Warm, spiritual, truthful, knowledgeable: those are just four of the words that come to mind when working with Elisabeth Halsted. She has handled my real estate dealings in a professional manner. She is extremely well- researched, detail-oriented, she doesn’t stop until every “t” is crossed, and her follow-up is amazing. And most of all, she’s straight. She’s straight with you. You can trust what you hear. I wouldn’t deal with anybody else for my real estate needs.”
“Elisabeth defies expectations with her exquisite taste, thorough knowledge of both her client and the marketplace and calm yet fierce follow through once a transaction is in process. Her intelligence and patience are surpassed only by her good humor. Inevitably, one feels like family with Elisabeth by the time her knowing guidance leads you to a new home.”
“We would love every person we know to use Elisabeth when they need a realtor. She is smart, cares so much about how her clients experience the process of buying or selling their home, and she has the most effortless and graceful way of bringing all aspects of a deal together. She never gets ruffled– even when the negotiating gets tricky. We love her and can’t imagine using any other broker, ever. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
“Elisabeth has been our go to real estate agent since the first day we met her. We love the time we have spent with her. She is completely professional and trustworthy. We always feel that she has our best interest in hand. She goes out of her way to make sure everything goes smoothly. We have recommended her to friends who have been thrilled to work with her as well. We feel very lucky to have her on our side!”
“Working with Elisabeth Halsted on my real estate transactions was effortless- she has the keen eye and intuition of space, like an artist, and tailors her search to each client.

“Elisabeth Halsted is a committed and trustworthy partner. We have worked with her several times and I always feel safe and excited about the possibilities she facilitates. We highly recommend Elisabeth.”
“Elisabeth has flair, energy and attention to detail, a great combination in a Realtor. Elisabeth represented us in a difficult market; her experience and knowledge of the market were invaluable in securing a quick sale for us.”
“Elisabeth became our agent after I called her about one of her listings. We had just moved to LA and Elisabeth could hear my desperation over the phone. From that call on she worked extremely hard to find us just the right house. I had two children in elementary school at the time, so finding the right school and the perfect house was a challenge. We had high expectations and were not going to settle. Elisabeth remained active, involved and optimistic throughout our search. Thanks to Elisabeth we found a great home!”
“To be an excellent real estate agents requires a keen understanding of the market, attention to detail and an ability to listen. When purchasing a home, emotional intelligence and details mean everything.
Elisabeth takes great pride in her work and strives for seamless transactions. Through the process of moving from New York to Los Angeles and the subsequent purchasing of our home, Elisabeth was there for us. I now consider her a close friend. As our family broker, Elisabeth consistently exceeds my expectations and has worked tirelessly to find not only the perfect home but also to ensure we are happy well beyond the sale.
Elisabeth views clients as long term partners with whom she will participate in some of the most important decisions of their lives. I highly recommend her.”
“Finding a home can be a grueling endeavor, but Elisabeth made our experience delightful. Not only does she have great taste and a beautiful aesthetic, she is also honest, kind and patient. She helped my husband and I find the house of our dreams and believe me, it wasn’t obvious at first. She saw the potential before we did but she let us discover it for ourselves, at our own pace and on our own terms. She also helped negotiate a great deal that fit our budget and left room for the necessary renovations. We love our home more and more each day and its all thanks to her!”
” I worked with several real estate agents to find a home in Venice over the past few years without any success and was relieved and delighted to meet Elisabeth Halsted. She presented us with exactly what we were looking for and at the price we had expected to pay. She is well informed because she is smart and an excellent listener. Every encounter with her was informative, fun and a good use of time. When we entered into negotiations she was calm, loyal, thorough and resourceful. I offer a strong recommendation without reservation.”
“Working with Elisabeth Halsted has been a seamless real estate experience. I was selling a condo that my family had owned for decades and I knew I wanted someone who cared. Elisabeth not only took care of all the paperwork, contact with the buyers and contract details, she was a great interior decorator. She prepared the condo to be viewed by buyers and it looked fantastic.
I didn’t want to deal with any last moment requests and she sealed a deal exactly when it was at hand. I would recommend Elisabeth to any friend or family member.”
“Our family couldn’t have been more fortunate than to find Elisabeth. She guided us through a home search, both rental and purchase options, in Santa Monica and beyond with grace, intelligence, wisdom and a welcome dash of wit. Hallmarks of working with Elisabeth are excellence, attention to detail, thoughtful conversation and constant professionalism.” L.W.
