About Elke

smallElke Cardella is a realtor helping people buy and sell homes in Wellesley, MA and surrounding towns. “There’s so much to offer here, beautiful residential neighborhoods, a top rated school system, and a friendly and involved population.” With more than 18 years experience in business and Wellesley real estate, she is uniquely qualified to serve the Wellesley community.

After obtaining her MBA in Marketing and Finance from the University of Chicago, Cardella worked in Strategic Alliances at Bank of America and in Digital Media Analytics and Strategy for AOL. Upon moving to Wellesley, she started her real estate business as a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker, Wellesley’s largest and most successful brokerage firm.

One of Cardella’s strengths is her data driven approach to making decisions and completing comparative market analysis for her clients. While buying and selling a home can be a very emotional process, she makes sure the emotional decisions are grounded in reality.

In addition to her role as a real estate agent, Cardella is heavily involved in the Wellesley community. She currently serves as a Sunday school teacher at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, and volunteers at Hardy Elementary School and Wellesley Montessori. She also runs a charity called “Wrap Them in Roses,” a group that makes gifts for pre-mature newborn babies.

Aside from spending time with family and friends, Cardella enjoys squash, running, yoga, and iPhone apps. She also speaks French and Indonesian.

When it came time to sell our first home, we chose Elke as our agent, and couldn’t be happier with the decision.  Buying or selling a home is one of the most stressful events in anyone’s financial life, and Elke’s expert advice helped us navigate this trying time. She made the whole process manageable for us, and was always just a quick phone call away to answer any questions or provide information to us.   Elke showed us how to present our house in the best possible light and helped to make sure the house was in perfect showing condition.  Thanks to her efforts and expert negotiating skills, our home sold for above asking price in 6 days!  Elke worked tirelessly on our behalf from initial listing preparations, through the negotiations and all the many subsequent activities to successfully close the deal.  She has a calming presence about her that made the whole process seem smooth and easy.  It was a pleasure working with her and we would highly recommend Elke to others!

We first met Elke Cardella at an Open House we visited and immediately liked her and her open style. She offered to send us MLS listings of similar homes and followed up with us without being pushy. She was very knowledgeable of the area and homes and clearly did her homework before showings. She was pro-active, punctual, upbeat and very pleasant to work with. She listened to our wishes and suggested homes that met our criteria. She was always willing to jump in and negotiate terms based on our requests. Elke was a joy to work with.

Elke was exactly the right Realtor for us! We planned a move from Minnesota nearly a year out and wanted to secure just the right place. Having distinct housing needs in a market that is not only far away but where good properties go quickly didn’t make us great clients to take on! Elke listened carefully to our wants, walked through various options and really made this all seem normal and natural for how buying a house should be. Working with Elke really lowered the stress of buying a house because of her calm confidence. As first time buyers we never felt out on a limb or alone in the process. We knew she was there for us with recommendations, support, and most importantly being an advocate for our goals and ultimately we got exactly the right place! –

Elke was a fantastic resource in helping my wife and I in finding our first home. Her diligence, responsiveness and knowledge was matched by her caring attitude. Our six month search for our first house was stressful enough, but add to it the fact that my wife was expecting our first child, and at times the process simply felt overwhelming. Throughout, Elke was there with a guiding and calming hand and really did go above and beyond in all phases of the process – search through closing. We could not have been more happy with our experience and have recommended her to all our friends who are looking in the area. It is a testament to Elke and her character that we are still in touch now and consider her a friend more than our realtor.
