“Buying a new home is a stressful experience and such anxiety can intensify when you’re simultaneously attempting to sell your current home. However, the assistance and support of an effective agent goes a long way toward easing that strain. Elaina Sansone is exactly that kind of agent. Elaina was more than just a real estate agent she was an advocate, a mentor and a friend throughout the entire process. Her patience was limitless as she guided us through house after house while we searched for ‘the perfect place’ to call our new home, while we prepared our old house for a showing and sale. Elaina’s experience proved invaluable as she helped us to set realistic expectations and attainable goals. Her advice and suggestions were candid and practical, and her enthusiasm was infectious from ‘day 1’ all the way through to closing. In a word, Elaina was fabulous. We would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone needing an agent”

“As my wife and I began looking for someone to represent the sale of our house it quickly became apparent there were lots of options and approaches for us to consider. So much had changed since we last purchased a home. As with many consumer decisions today, we started our search via the internet.

After narrowing it down to a few of the top agencies in town the next decision was selecting an agent. Because selling a house is usually a significant life and financial event, we felt it was critical the agent we chose was not only well qualified, effective and strong, but just as importantly that we shared a personal connection. After all, this is someone you’re literally inviting into your home and asking them to represent your interests.

Based on their online bios, we quickly selected three agents from two difference agencies to interview. Turns out, they were all qualified and each brought their own unique strengths to the equation. But one of them clearly stood out above the other two—Elaina Sansone of The Koehler Bortnick Team at ReeceNichols. But, although she had lots of great business background, was clearly qualified and we connected with her on a personal level-she hadn’t been selling real estate as long as the other two agents we interviewed. So, that led us to ask the question I opened with… which is more important, the agent or the agency?

Turns out, it was a false choice. We realized we didn’t have to choose either/or. Because by choosing Elaina we got a great agent AND because she was part of The Koehler Bortnick Team we knew she had KC’s premier real estate team to back her up all the way. How could we lose?

Elaina immediately demonstrated to us that we’d made the right decision. She quickly worked through all the administrative details, prepared marketing materials and, after consulting with her team, even helped answer some challenging timing questions regarding when to actually list our house for sale due to some maintenance work we were completing. Her enthusiasm was contagious and we knew right from the start that this partnership was going to pay off. And, it did.

Within 3 days of listing we received multiple offers and reached a great deal. Wanting to sell our house quickly, this worked out perfectly for us and Elaina continues to work diligently to tie up all the loose ends that come with the sale of any house. We couldn’t have done any better than Elaina and would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.

Elaina Sansone, The Koehler Bortnick Ream, and ReeceNichols. For us, a winning combination of agent, team, and agency. We got all three with Elaina.”

“Words cannot describe how thankful my soon-to-be wife and I are to you. I hope this endorsement finds you well.  When we first started our house hunting project my fiance and I were prepared to settle for a house that met our specific needs, but would have required a lot of work. During this process, you saved us from making a mistake. Due ONLY to your passion for customer service and your intuition we are in a home we still can’t believe.  Because of your intuition, experience, and drive to represent your clients to the BEST of your ability you were able to discover a home that wasn’t even on the market yet. You were able to set up a showing for us, and WOW. The house was incredible, everything we could ask for. We put an offer on the house almost immediately.

You’ve been absolutely amazing through the whole process. You were always there to guide us along the way, offering insight during a very stressful inspection / negotiation process. At no time did we ever feel pressured or ‘coerced’ into one decision or another. You always made sure our needs were met and our decisions were our own to make.  Even when you were unable to physically be there for us, Barbara Wolf-Force also did an incredible job of helping us through the process. I have never heard of a company that has had such amazing, attentive, passionate people working for them. The both of you have made what is normally a very stressful process seem almost easy.  So in closing, again, I want to say thanks. Elania, Barbara– thank you very very much. You both have been incredible. You and the whole Koehler Bortnick team have my greatest thanks– and a customer for life. Buying or selling– I’ll be passing your info to anyone who will take it!”

“My husband and I worked with Elaina for almost a year to find our home. Yet still, in that amount of time, her sincerity, amazing energy and patience didn’t waver a bit! We asked a lot of questions, and if she didn’t know the answer, she was on it immediately.  She is on the phone more than anyone else I know, which is pretty awesome when you need your agent to be willing to answer the phone at any time of night or day.  We have the highest respect for her as a person and as a real estate agent; we will recommend her to every single person we can because we have experienced the exceptional service that she offers. She is a rock star agent!”
-Andrea Grieser

“Elaina did a fantastic job for us. It had been a while since we engaged an agent so we were a bit rusty on what was needed. Elaina walked us through her recommendations to help us get top price for our property. She offered great advice and insight into what home buyers in our area want to see. After we implemented her recommendations our house went on the market.  Elaina kept us up to date on any input from agents or potential buyers. Then, we found ourselves reviewing multiple offers within days of the property hitting the market. We highly recommend Elaina. She is just a real go-getter who knows the market and what buyers and agents are looking for. She is a true professional, very responsive and just a great person to work with. We will definitely use Elaina again!”
-Kathleen Fasone

“Elaina is a consummate professional with excellent negotiating skills.  She is able to build bridges between buyers and sellers, and was able to make  a difficult situation comfortable for everyone involved.  When buying or selling a home she is someone who will always look out for her client’s best interests.  Thank you Elaina!”
– Kelly Privitera

“My husband and I had a wonderful experience selling our home with Elaina. She was persistent and on top of the process the entire time. She listened to our wants and always put our request first! We would highly recommend her!”
-Jess & Sam Jeffries

“Elaina was great to work with!  She made buying our first home easy and walked us through the process.  She was always quick to respond to our questions with an honest answer.  We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home!”

“We recently relocated to Kansas City, MO from Texas with our three school aged kids.  We quickly realized that buying was our best option and through a friend we were introduced to Elaina Sansone.  She was able to work with us on a very tight schedule to find a home that fit our budget in a great school district.  She did not disappoint and was always available.  If you are looking for a home in the KC area, my wife and I can’t recommend Elaina enough.  She is a great agent, but more importantly became our first friend in KC!” Tim and Teresa Bryer

“Recently, my husband and I needed to sell our home in the Historic Northeast because of a job related move. Unfortunately, we had a negative experience with our first realtor that left us unsure of who to trust. Hesitantly, we agreed to meet Elaina and talk with her. In our initial meeting, we were so impressed with her positive attitude, business sense, and go-get ‘em attitude that we signed a contract with her. I’m so glad that we did! Elaina surpassed all of our expectations! She stayed in close communication with us, but took so much off our shoulders by the way she handled the details, which made the process very smooth. She was always available and responded quickly to all of our questions. Plus, she worked hard to make sure we were happy with our final contract. My husband and I were sad to move away from KC because we would prefer to use Elaina for all of our future real estate needs. I would highly recommend her services. You will not be disappointed!” Sarah Patrick

“Elaina Sansone was a great agent for us while we were looking for our new house. There were many options in many different areas, and finding that perfect home can be challenging. As we were looking we were either unable to find what we wanted, or the house was gone before we could react. Elaina helped to navigate the many pitfalls of not only finding the house but the actual buying process. She was there when we had questions, and she was there when we needed a voice. During the buying process we needed different services, Elaina was able to always provide at least one contact, sometimes two that we could use if we wanted. It made the entire process easier.”
-M. Smith

“I happened to mention to a friend, over lunch, that my husband and I were wanting to sell our house, She said she knew of the perfect person that had helped them with the sale of their house and gave me her phone number. We met Elaina Sansone and knew that we would be in good hands. She listened intently to what we wanted and didn’t want when it came to selling the house and all of our expectations. Elaina then showered us with her expertise and suggestions to ready the house. She thoroughly explained the process we should expect and all fees, so that there would be no surprises. In the days and weeks ahead, we were never alone or forgotten. Elaina checked in all the time with updates and anytime we had a question or concern, she got back to us almost immediately and if she didn’t have an answer, she didn’t stop until she did or the issue was taken care of. Elaina is a real go-getter, full of positivity, has goodconnections with contractors, above and beyond helpful, easy to work with and a great asset to ReeceNichols.”

Greetings! My name is Elaina Marie Sansone. I am a native of Kansas City, and I was born, raised and have lived in the Northland my entire life. I attended St. Patrick’s Grade School and St.Pius X High School. I am extremely fortunate to have so many friends and family in my life. I have three children that I adore, and I cherish every minute with them. (Well, almost every minute!) Nikki is 15 years old, Sophie is 13, and Austin is 10 . They are the reason I work so hard for my clients!

I am a woman who strives for excellence in everything I do. I have started an automotive dealership in the greater Kansas City area from the ground up. The doors opened in August of 1992 and it has grown to approximately 20 employees. We’ve had thousands of satisfied customers, with a large number of them purchasing several autos over the years. The sales, management, and overall interaction that I have learned can be attributed to owning, operating, and succeeding in business.

I am truly grateful and excited to be with the #1 Koehler Bortnick Team. The Koehler Bortnick Team welcomed me with open arms and provided more knowledge and insight than I ever dreamed existed. THANK YOU to the entire Koehler Bortnick Team!

I have chosen to be in real estate because homes are a passion of mine, and I enjoy decorating and staging. I have owned several homes and have conquered the decorating job often; I have many friends that have flattered me by wanting my advice, and have found that to be a treat. I would love to assist in the sale of your home, and help with anyone looking to purchase.
