What Our Customers Say

I contacted Jolene for the purchase of our house. She was very helpful and took time to explain every element of the process. I was able to contact her at all times, and our purchase went through very swiftly due to Jolene's attention to detail. I would highly recommend Jolene at McElhinney & Associates.

Following a road traffic accident recently I contacted Jolene Mcelhinney to see if I had any sort of claim. I had bad injuries that kept me out of work for 6 months. I found her very professional and committed. She made sure I was fully compensated for the injuries and that I received back all my lost wages, and she also looked after my car damage. Very happy first class service.
