Elke Cardella

Realtor®

Get To Know Me

Elke is a thoughtful, friendly, and data-driven real estate agent whose priority is to help her clients make successful real estate choices. “My clients are everything, their ability to make smart real estate moves translates directly into my own sense of self-worth.”
 
She has been a real estate agent for five years in the Wellesley and Metrowest markets. Over that time, she has built a strong base of loyal clients who enjoy working with her because of her “integrity, hard work, local knowledge and genuine care for her clients.”
 
One of Elke’s particular strengths is her data-driven approach to making decisions and completing comparative market analysis for her clients both when selling their homes as well as evaluating potential purchases. “There is usually a spreadsheet or two involved.” While buying and selling a home can be a very emotional process, she makes sure the emotional decisions are grounded in reality.
 
After obtaining her MBA in Marketing and Finance from the University of Chicago, Elke 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 and most recently joined Compass, an innovative and tech-driven luxury brokerage.
 
In addition to her role as a real estate agent, Elke 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.
 
Aside from work, Elke enjoys playing squash, running, iPhone apps, and spending time with family and friends. She also speaks French and Indonesian.
