While pursuing her corporate aspirations Elena developed a passion for real estate marked by active investments both, domestically and overseas.
Surfacing of two adorable but excruciatingly demanding children, made Elena's transition to a formal real estate career not only logical, but exciting. Elena's background in project management, business administration, negotiation and consulting make a great addition to her expertise in Real Estate.
