Client Reviews


Elissa was more than helpful with the purchase of our Miami Beach apartment. She was upfront and kind and was able to match both side's expectations very fast. She was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. We definitely recommend her!"

These are the words that come to my mind to describe the experience of having Elissa as ones realtor: practical, available, down-to-earth, problem-solver, experienced, with a touch of refreshing British sense of humour. All great and necessary qualities you definitely want to have whilst dealing with the Miami real estate market!- EC

Elissa is the best!! She worked so diligently to make sure we got into exactly the right home for us. Elissa stays on top of everything and helps make the really stressful process of home buying as easy as possible. As a bonus, her fun personality makes you look forward to spending endless hours looking at properties, because you get to spend those hours with Elissa! If you want someone to hustle in your best interest, then this is your realtor! - Barb Shimansky

"I was referred to Elissa by a good friend and knew after the first call she was going to be great. This was my first time buying a property and Elissa was so supportive in helping me understand the process. She has such a warm, friendly personality and it was so easy to work with her. She goes out of her way to be available for anything you need and is very timely in her responses. I couldn't be more grateful for my experience and highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor."

Elissa was just amazing. Not only did she find us the perfect property but she got it $110,000 lower than other units listed! She's hard working, fun, friendly, intelligent and a great negotiator. 5 stars!!!

We were fortunate to work with Elissa on our recent condo purchase. We were in town for a just a few days on holiday and had limited time to look. From the start, Elissa was able to identify the right types of places we were looking for. She quickly searched through available inventory and filtered it for us to further narrow our search. We provided our top 10 choices at 1am, and by 8am the next day, we had a list of units to see over the next 2 days. While each of the properties had their merits (there were a few we could have made offers on), our first choice "on paper" ended up being our first choice upon visit. Elissa helped us navigate through the process by encouraging us to think about the important factors and asking the questions, to us AND to the property owners, we may not have been thinking about. Further, she helped us manage the negotiating process, ensuring we weren't offering more than needed. Once in contract, Elissa took care of every detail in managing the process and dealing with the multiple parties involved. She stayed on top of things, and we never had to ask her where things are at. We received regular updates and requests for any outstanding information needed. She made herself available for any calls we wanted to have. All this with a great sense of humor and personal care. We wholeheartedly recommend Elissa and look forward to working with her again, whether it be for managing a rental property or a future purchase.

I cannot complement Elissa highly enough for her help in renting out our unit to our new tenant. I can unreservedly recommend Elissa to anyone looking for help in Miami. Elissa, is professional, personable, knowledgeable, extremely organized and well connected within the community. There is no question in my mind who we will be turning to for help for all of our real estate needs in Miami in the years to come. We manage this property remotely, and having Elissa on the ground was invaluable. From preparing our listing, to providing strategy and pricing advice, Elissa was helpful and highly communicative the entire way. Once Elissa identified our tenant, she seamlessly helped us to identify and coordinate painters, repair and cleaning professionals who were equally as diligent and conscientious as Elissa. In short, Elissa has a great team mate, and helped us to avoid a lot of stress and extra work. Thank you Elissa!

Thanks to God who provided our wonderful realtor Elissa Lithman whose wisdom, persistence and professionalism helped make this happen!
C Batres

It has been over 5 months since my husband and I have been working with Elissa Lithman. She's taken the time to really know what we wanted in a home and always understood how to find the right place for us. Once our home was found she's worked day and night to ensure that all our concerns and inquiries were answered making the transition to our closing date more comfortable then I ever imagined it to be. Honestly I'm grateful and at ease to know that Elissa was there to walk us through the purchase of our first home. Without even hesitating I will contact Elissa for future purchases or even recommend Elissa to others who wish to purchase or rent homes here in Miami. She becomes your friend and not just a realtor spending every moment of the process along side you from inspections to even closings which is really rare for a realtor to do. She's a good egg and you'll be in good hand if you choose to work with Elissa Lithman.

Words cannot describe how good Elissa was to me. After dealing with countless agents who were unorganized and slow to communicate Elissa raised the bar. She was impeccably organized and was able to show me many listings, even driving me to some listings. She didn't stop until she found me the perfect home. She made it all about me and even when I liked something, she insisted on something else that was in fact better. She took me everywhere and helped me in EVERY part of the process, even after I took the lease. I an go on and on, but this is not a normal agent, she is the top of the top. I would HIGHLY recommend her! - J Zurbel

I can’t say enough about the great service I received from Elissa. In addition to being extremely well organized, thorough, and great with follow-up, Elissa is a very savvy agent, knows the market well, and subsequently gives very sound advice. With strong interpersonal and communication skills, she really keyed in to what I was looking for and helped me prioritize needs and wants. To that end, I ended up getting the best of both! Let’s just say that Elissa is a very skilled negotiator and advocate.
Also apparent is that Elissa has surrounded herself with a very solid group of associates, all of whom she is well respected by. She is honest, ethical, and her reputation is second to none. She makes navigating the real estate world seem effortless, though it’s obvious that she works very hard behind the scenes to make things come together. Elissa really made it seem like we were in it together –and we were! As such, I consider her to be a top notch agent and a true friend. For all these reasons and many more, I recommend Elissa very very highly.

Bought a Apartment home in 2017 in Wynwood - Edgewater, Miami, FL.
Excellent real state professional who will Listen and advocate for her clients. Had the best experience thru my home buying process.
Truth to my requests Elissa was prompt and accurate on the properties she searched for me She is also a skilled negotiator who will fight until the price is right for you.

I met Elissa through a listing on Trulia. She showed me two apartments in South Beach that met my criteria for a new rental place. She was warm, friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. She interacted with the other realtors showing the apartments that I was interested in. Elissa asked them important questions that helped me make my decision.
Unfortunately, I experienced a horribly stressful situation as the landlord's realtor was dishonest. The apartment I chose was advertised to me as having an assigned parking space, and that was also stated on the first few documents I signed. However, somewhere along the way, the landlord's realtor changed her story and the documents, and subsequently denied that she had told me about a parking space. Thankfully, I had emails and documents proving what was said to me.
Elissa came to my rescue and consulted her lawyer. They emailed the landlord's office on my behalf. Elissa went above and beyond! She helped me out so much with this nightmare so I'm forever grateful. Even when I had to meet with the realtor who lied to me, Elissa made sure to look out for my best interest. Elissa treated me as a family member would, and spoke on my behalf (to the liar) as I too uncomfortable, anxious, and angry to do so.
I will certainly use Elissa's services when I need them again. I trust that she will give me the best treatment. Thank you for all you did for my husband and I!

Elissa was my hero during my purchase!!! She knew exactly what I wanted and didn't waste any time finding it for me. Honest, professional and just GREAT. I am in Construction and deal with many realtors but without a doubt Elissa is the top 1%
Thank you so much again!!!!

Sold a home in Flamingo Lummus, Miami, FL 33139.
Elissa has been amazing through the entire process, from listing the apt to the day of the closing. Her expertise, knowledge of the market and professionalism are highly recommendable.

From agent to family. Without a doubt, the only reason I have my dream home today is because if Elissa (the best agent in the world). As a first time, highly complicated and picky home owner, I was looking to purchase a condo on Miami Beach. Elissa listen and made note of all the things I was looking for and all things I was not looking for. Not only did she find the perfect condo she did everything she could to save me from myself making bad decisions. She took control of the entire deal by negotiating with the seller, keeping in constant contact with my attorney and following up with my lender. She is highly organized and efficient when it comes to process, documents and follow-up. She held my hand and made sure I was informed of all the risks and opportunities every step of the way. After waiting the mandatory 2 months to close (a requirement from a lender that I picked), the loan was denied because of the condo association. I am sure that you can imagine the type of melt down that this news caused a week before my closing. At this point I didn’t want anything to do with lending ever again. After letting Elissa know about the terrible news (while she was out of the country on vacation), she asked me if I would mind if she spoke to another lender in my behalf to see if they could help. I said that I didn’t mind but that I was over it. This all happened on Friday night, by Sunday I spoke with the new lender who had a great plan that ultimately lowered my original loan amount by $300 a month. I know it is hard to trust people you don’t know but I wish I would have used ALL of Elissa’s resources from the beginning. If I did, I would have closed the deal in 30 days not 100 days and with a lot less stress. Do yourself a favor listen to Elissa, she has your best interest in mind. She is an amazing agent, friend and now family member. Elissa, I love you Jody (and her team) and the last minute hero Robin. Thank you for my amazing dream home!
I recommend her to everyone now!
M. Gonzalez

Elissa goes the extra mile to provide a first class service. Nothing is too much trouble for Elissa, she is prepared to help in any way shape or form to make sure your selling/buying experience with her goes a smoothly as possible. A true professional!
J Davidison

Elissa Lithman was our realty agent in closing on a condo in South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach. I have never had a more professional and positive experience in my multi interactions over a fifty year period of buying and selling homes. She spent many weeks finding the perfect place for my wife and me. She helped in overcoming a number of issues which could have been road blocks to our purchase. Besides her professionalism, she is a personal delight.

Elissa was absolutely fantastic. She knew the ins and outs of South Beach and could tell us everything about getting around, parking, best areas to live with convenient businesses, commute times into Miami proper, and general living. I was househunting in Miami over Memorial Day weekend and she even came out on a holiday Saturday with places to show me. She didn't rest until I had found the perfect spot, and she facilitated all paperwork and issues while I was back home. I will be recommending Elissa to everyone I know moving to this area, and if I move again she'll be the first person I call.
A. Thompson

Elissa is amazing. Really knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. She listened to all of our needs and found us the perfect home in our budget and preferred neighborhood. Second time we've worked with her and the only person we would work with in Miami.
Syd Towne

Elissa is a very professional and kind person who will always help you at anytime with everything! For me, she is definitely the best realtor I have met in Miami. Thanks to her I have found the perfect place to live! I strongly recommend her!

Elissa is such a nice person and she was incredibly helpful during my search for an apartment in Miami. She really understands what you are looking for, so you can find your new apartment or real-estate quickly. I would definitely recommend her!
Jeanette Rieger

Bought a Condo home in Oceanfront, Miami Beach, FL.
Simply put, Elissa exceeded our expectations as a real estate agent. Her elegant charm and lovely British accent, along with her comprehensive understanding of the Miami Market made working with Elissa a simple process for us. Elissa has tremendous integrity, which means, she follows up and puts herself in your shoes as the buyer (since Elissa was once a buyer too); so she understands your needs AS a buyer. She's a great listener who went out of her way to meet our needs and schedule viewings around our busy schedule. This was our first purchase in Miami Beach so we didn't know what to expect. Elissa surprised us! She will surprise you too!

first meeting Elissa was a pleasure ! She's Very pleasant and warm hearted, Elissa was also very knowledgeable and answered the question we had pertaining to different areas..I would not hesitate to recommend Elissa to anyone, she is great !
Richard Brandon

Extremely professional and knowledgeable on the miami beach area pleasant, with appropriate manners and capable of understanding the client's needs she helped and was patient in encountering the perfect match and I am sure that if I will need some additional support in the future she will be available.

Sold a Townhouse home Oceanfront, Miami Beach, FL.I have worked in the property business for approximately 30 years, and I can attest that Ms. Elissa Lithman is probably one of the best realtors that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Ms. Lithman is very professional, caring about the customer, and went way beyond the normal level of service that you would expect from a realtor. I will be using Ms. Lithman for all my future real-estate transactions.

Home in Wynwood - Edgewater, Miami, FL. Despite the sheer number of realtors in Miami, it's very difficult to find One you can count on. It's taken me years, but I finally found Elissa. She is dependable, organized, tech savvy, and always responsive. She found my dream home the day it was listed, and then negotiated down the price to under my budget. Can't ask for more. A+++ -

Home in Flamingo Lummus, Miami Beach, FL. Words can't explain she was awesome very down to earth.. Gots us the best deal in a short time. We needed something right away and she pulled a rabbit out the hat.. Loving the beach life.-

"We worked with Elissa on finding a new condominium in South Beach. From our discussion about our needs all the way through close, we found working with her was a pleasant experience. Most importantly, with her help, we found a place about which we’re super excited. In particular, we found Elissa very patient with our many questions, showed us a lot of options that helped narrow down our priorities, was prompt for our appointments and with follow-up which was respectful of our time, and was a good sounding board for our thinking as we progressed through the process. Her infectious laugh was a joy to hear, and yet she wasn't shy when needing to get an answer or push the process along. Towards the end of the transaction we hit a few snags caused by a lender dragging their feet. We found Elissa to be extremely calming and reassuring at a time we most needed those qualities."

"A joy to work with Elissa was professional and helpful in our home search in South Beach. She worked with us in honing our needs and desires for a new home- and went about searching and leaving no rock unturned per se. Despite some challenges with a long closing and issues with our lender, she stayed on top of the process and her calming manner gave us confidence that the deal would get done. She was punctual on all of the showings as well as always reachable when we had questions, And her sense of humor, throaty laugh and British accent were an added bonus to the whole experience. Thanks to Elissa's good work, we look forward to many wonderful moments in our new home. "

"The Wonder Woman Elissa had already helped buy a condo, of which she went out of her way to handle multi issues with the purchase. So of course, we went to her when we wanted to buy a large unit. She found the perfect unit for us, and then Covid. We never would have made the purchase if she had not been our agent. I could go on for paragraphs on the problems that came up because of Covid restrictions. She smoothly and calmly got us through it. She also helped us rent our old condo for a higher rental than we thought possible. "

"What has made Elissa stand above other real estate agents we worked with( we had 18 moving in four different continents) is that she took our decision to sell our apartment like it were her own. sparing no efforts, ideas, acquaintances, marketing tools to get it done. In the aspect of communication she never missed to respond almost immediately to any call, request or clarification we submitted to her. She managed the whole process of selling our apartment like she was acting has a helping friend instead of a professional real estate agent. "

Because our transaction was handled remotely rather than in person, she went above and beyond to accommodate our requests in showing properties via Facetime as well as helping guide us through negotiation and inspection issues.
