The Elsafy Team is…

Making Good Things Happen

Helping you is the most important thing we do.

Experience, knowledge, and accomplishments; we have them all in spades. Others want to talk about how many millions they’ve sold. We want to listen. Others will speak to you in cliches. We will tell you plainly what you need to know. Others will tell you what to think. We will empower you with knowledge so you can make the best decision. That’s what makes us different.

About Us
We’re not number one!

There are hundreds of Realtor choices.
Some even sell more homes than we do.

Being number one is not our goal.
Rather, taking exceptional care of our clients is what gets us excited!

Who we are

We’re genuinely caring people and guardians of your trust.

What we do

We make good things happen! We combine market knowledge, creative marketing, honest insight, and strong advocacy and wrap them together in an experience that feels great.

Why we’re different

Lots of Realtors can transact. But few can help you make important and sometimes challenging decisions with compassion and respect.

Make More. Sell Faster.


Selling your home for top dollar is no accident.  Doing the right things in the right order will have a big impact on your bottom line. We’ve got the plan to get you there.

What our clients say

You all did a wonderful job from start (10 years ago) to finish. With so much going on in life, we were able to trust your team, without reservation, to completely manage our Real estate experience. When we see the Shorewest sign displayed anywhere in our community, there lies an assurance that all will be well.

Christopher J. Stoye and Julie A. Tokarz-Stoye  
Gayl and Dawn and the whole team at Shorewest were incredibly effective and helpful selling my father’s home in Shorewood. What could have been a difficult process was streamlined by people who knew how to remove obstacles and then position us for a tremendous showing and a successful close. The marketing strategy was spot-on and they thoroughly understood the realty climate of the day, suggesting ways to maximize the appeal of the property and then following through with energy and drive when it came time to present the house. I couldn’t have asked for a more enthusiastic or heartfelt group of professionals — they truly love what they do and it shows!
Paul Baron  
The Elsafy Team and Essam were wonderful to work with during what was a very smooth house selling process. There were excellent pointers for getting the house market ready. Steps, process and my responsibilities were clearly explained and he made sure nothing seemed overwhelming. Based on his market knowledge and referrals, he was able to immediately match a buyer to the house, streamlining the sale. I felt he was straightforward, honest, and very ethical. and he was top notch at communication as we moved through the sales steps. I was happy with the process, pleased with the price I received, and would absolutely recommend his team to friends. Thank you!
Deborah A. Strand  

Katie Gnau and the Shorewood team made selling our home so easy! She took extra care to ensure we had a successful sale with no unexpected issues. The whole team was great!

Eric J. Salter and Heidi R. Salter  

Elsafy Team sold our house during a difficult time of year and they were so helpful the entire way. We needed a lot of coaching through the process and they gave great advice because they truly know this market. Highly recommend!

Jean Heffernan  

Jenny was outstanding. This is our second time working with her and each time she provided excellent service. Communication was very timely and she is always available for input, questions and feedback. She made the stress of selling property much more palatable. Jenny is clearly a very knowledgeable and talented professional.
