Innovative Real Estate Consultant

When you hang around residential real estate expert Elaina Marie Sansone for any length of time, don’t be surprised if she drops a few “F” bombs in your general direction: Family, Friends, and Fun. Yeah, she pontificates with flair like that and is known for her infectious and upbeat personality. Upon meeting her for the first time, if you sense an outgoing, energetic, people-loving, life-living kind of gal who balances professionalism and excitement with equal aplomb and enthusiasm, then please don’t waver from that initial conclusion.

But don’t just take our word for it. Accolades continually pour in from all points of the metro area, all of which propel her stellar reputation further into the spotlight. According to one loyal and satisfied client, “Elaina’s #1 goal is to sell your home and to do so quickly. She is honest and hard-working.”

Elaina honed her real estate skills as a member of the award-winning Koehler Bortnick team at ReeceNichols. After six years, she opted to strike out on her own two years ago and is now the CEO of Elaina Sansone Sales Consulting and Designs. In addition to her excellent real estate services, Elaina also provides staging and design services. After realizing she had a knack for interior design and decorating, she established Sansone Design a year ago, providing added value to her clients. Elaina has been a Senior Sales Executive for the past eight years and remains a consecutive year multi-million dollar producer. Licensed in both Missouri and Kansas, this lifelong Kansas City resident works with buyers and sellers in both resale and new construction.

Elaina has experience across the board, too. She is a specialist in all aspects of new construction, including research and planning, pre-development consultations, architectural review, builder recruitment and design meetings. She has listed multi-million dollar condos, horse properties acreage, starter homes, luxury residences, and nearly everything in between, working with all types of clients, including some high profile professional athletes, influential business owners and local notables. No matter the location or the individual, Elaina is always on full throttle, fully prepared to deliver results that matter.

“Wherever there is a client, that is where I will go,” she smiled.

In reality, Elaina is not simply a real estate agent; she is a consultant, a concierge, a trusted advisor, a confidante and, above all, a friend. She travels with each client from beginning to end … and then some. The relationship doesn’t dissolve at the end of the transaction.

“I am a true extrovert and get my energy from people,” she emphasized. “My clients are amazing and I am blessed with the lifelong friends I have made through this journey.”

That extroverted personality is tempered with an impressive professional background that wasn’t always rooted in the real estate industry. For 18 years, Elaina co-owned and operated a car dealership and grew it to multi-million dollar company, which was built from the ground up. She also owned several rental properties during that time, and from that collective experience she honed her savvy negotiating skills and her impressive financial prowess. If you are looking to purchase a home, Elaina will make sure you are comfortable with all costs associated with your monthly mortgage payment.

“I love working with buyers, especially first timers, walking them through the process and educating them. I want them to be a payment buyer, not just focused on the amount for which they are approved,” Elaina indicated.

But it is not just her personable and welcoming personality that sets Elaina apart. She has a cornucopia of knowledge, insight, and experience that keep her continually at the head of the pack.

“Elaina is incredibly organized and professional. Her excellent communication and negotiation skills helped us to obtain multiple offers, above asking price and on the first day of our listing,” expressed another client.

But let’s just cut to the chase: Elaina gets the job done. Whether a buyer or a seller and no matter the price point or location, she is driven to ensure your success and satisfaction. Her top-notch organization and communication skills are only further enhanced by her savvy negotiating skills.

“I don’t play sides,” she stated. “Whether buyer or seller, I represent whoever has hired me, and I love, love, love to negotiate! That is my strength.”

When not tending to her business, Elaina cherishes every moment spent with her three grown children, Nikki, Sophie and Austin, with whom she is extremely close. She also enjoys time with her parents, sharing weekly Italian dinners with them; adventures in travel; meeting new people; and simply enjoying any and all new adventures and opportunities that greet her each morning.

When you partner with Elaina to buy and/or sell your home, you don’t just get a trusted advisor and proven salesperson; you have round-the-clock access to her. Her thorough and effective lines of communication are never closed. She is an agent who genuinely cares about her clients and will help you find exactly what you are looking for, helping you navigate the entire process as seamlessly and effortlessly as possible. Without question, Elaina has her heart in her business and adds the kind of service that simply cannot be measured in dollars alone.
