Eleanor’s Clients Testimonials

Zachary Woessner

“Eleanor and her team are amazing! As a first-time home buyer, she answered all my questions, made herself readily available outside of normal business hours, and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and supported throughout the whole process. Eleanor’s most standout trait is her personable nature, followed closely, if not matched by, her professionalism. Pros: – Personable – Professional – Available on your schedule – Efficient & honest about opinions of showings Cons: – None I cannot recommend her enough and will definitely reach out if/when I sell my current home.”

Kathryn Larson

“I would HIGHLY recommend Eleanor to anyone looking to buy real estate in the Lansing, MI area. We were moving from out of state and had very little knowledge about the Lansing area. She was able to help us refine our search based on the criteria we gave her. Since we were coming from out of state we had a very condensed time line to search for houses in person. Over the course of 4 days Eleanor took us on about 30 home tours, she was able to provide detailed information about each of the homes, the housing market in general, as well as the surrounding areas (grocery stores, shopping, schools, commuting routes, etc.). Once we found our house, Eleanor was able to help us close quickly, including helping us find a mortgage lender. Eleanor was also able to recommend inspectors and contractors for all of our needs. She even scheduled and met with all of the contractors at the house prior to closing so that we could start getting estimates and scheduling work to begin immediately after closing.”

Thomas Sheahan

“Eleanor is amazing and super patient. She’s helped me purchase two homes now and I am looking forward to listing with her in the near future. She is extremely knowledgeable, not just about homes in general, but a vast knowledge of the area she works in. Elizabeth and I have appreciated her always going the extra mile and being readily accessable these past five years or so.”

Pilton Mitchell 

“If I could I would give Peter and Eleanor 10 stars, I have done multiple transactions with them and have been pleased every time. Eleanor is extremely patient, her goal is to get the buyer what they want. Her experience shows in the advice she gives, which has enabled me to make the right decisions. If you are looking to purchase or buy property, this is the team for you.”

Mont Roberts

“We had an extremely positive experience with the MacIntyre and Cowen Real Estate Professionals. Things were well coordinated and smooth. We always felt we were in competent hands dealing with pricing issues and house offers. Eleanor Cowen was always immediately available and helped to guide us through areas of potential indecision. The supporting office staff always maintained immediate communications with us regarding any activity on our property. We would recommend this company without reservation.”

Brianna Boring

“I very highly recommend Eleanor! She worked with me for many months while I struggled to find a house and she was very patient and helpful during the entire process. I was a first time homebuyer and she helped make sure I was making the right decisions. I now have a home that I love thanks to her!”

Nancy Curtis

“Fabulous experience. Eleanor was knowledgeable and very quick to respond to any questions that we had no matter what time of day or evening when we had a question. Made the process very easy. We were a bit rusty as we had not purchased a home for 26 years and now everything is electronic; but Eleanor was able to guide us through every step. I would recommend her as an agent to any one who wants an easy and successful experience. Very personable and not pushy at all. We appreciated that.”

Shawn Minarik

“Eleanor is the best there is…. I have never met anyone like her, she knows the business front and back and is extremely reliable. We have used her for several houses and when we refer her everyone loves her. Thank you Eleanor for your hard work and wonderful friendship.”

Daniel S.

“If you need a real estate agent to help you buy or sell, this is the place to go. Eleanor herself is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market as well as the houses themself. She would never pressure you into purchasing any home, especially a home you aren’t completely convinced you want. I have gone through their office to buy 5 homes, as have all of my friends and family to whom I have recommended Eleanor.”

Sara Hawkins

“This summer we had the pleasure of working with Eleanor, who was wonderful. Personally, my favorite qualities were her candidness and honesty. Other than that there are too many positive things to say, so I’ll just leave it at this: we wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again in the future (we’d actually look forward to it) and would recommend her to others in a heartbeat.”

Mike & Liza Secord

“Eleanor was just perfect, especially for us being first time home buyers. She was both patient yet attentive of guiding us through the process. The whole team made the process nearly seamless. Mike & Liza Secord”

Abby Bennett

“Working with Eleanor to buy our house was excellent, every step of the way. We were moving from out of state, and we had only a 48-hour visit to find and put an offer on a home. This was intimidating because houses were selling very quickly in the area. But Eleanor made sure we had a successful offer on a house we loved by the time we left. She dedicated the two days to taking us around to showings, creating a really well-organized and efficient “tour” for us of homes meeting our criteria. Eleanor’s knowledge of the area and the market made it all work – she was able to figure out very quickly what the status was on the homes we were interested in and made sure we didn’t miss an opportunity! Eleanor was also super responsive. I don’t think she ever took longer than a few minutes to respond to email, text, or call, regardless of the day and time. Everything was smooth and successful. Even my two year old daughter loved Eleanor!”


“We worked with Eleanor Cowen, looking for a home in Okemos, moving from out-of-state. This was, hands down, the best real estate experience we’ve ever had. Eleanor was always immediately responsive, helpful in narrowing our search and great about arranging her schedule to give us undivided attention when we traveled from NC to look at homes. She went above and beyond in helping us purchase a home that was in high demand quickly and efficiently and facilitated a long-distance closing. We so highly recommend!”


“This was the second house I’ve purchased with Eleanor. She has gone above and beyond my expectations. She was available when I had questions and was more than happy to help with anything needed. She made the process as easy as it can be and was an advocate for me through the whole process. Thanks again, Eleanor!”

Paula M.

“Eleanor Cowen was premier as our buyers’ agent for our first rental house purchase. She went far and above the minimum and really helped us through the process. We left the closing feeling like we made a new friend.”

Shawn M.

“Where do I start well Eleanor of course is the most awesome real estate agent ever. There are many things that make her special from knowing things about a house that other people may not know and pointing things out to you that are very important she’s always staying in contact and following up with you I don’t know what I’d do without her we have used her more than once and are very happy with her and her company.”


“Highly Recommend Eleanor. I already bought several houses with her. She is an expert. If she is not with me, I never give an offer out. I was impressed by her accurate evaluation of a property. The price always goes as she expected. She is very knowledgeable about houses. She told me how much I would spend to fix the house. Finally, the cost would be very close.”


“We had an amazing experience working with Eleanor to buy our house. This was our first time buying a home, and she made the experience incredibly easy! She came highly recommended, and we couldn’t have been happier. Definitely the best choice we could have made!”

Brad T.

“Eleanor was incredible with helping us every step of the way. She gave us ideas for financing, improvements, and was a professional. I can’t say enough great things to express how well she did her job. Thanks a bunch Eleanor!”


“Well all I can say is that Eleanor is the best out there. She worked with us for a few years & I always felt bad to pull her to a house and it didn’t work out for me. She is such a trooper & totally there for you. We finally found our house & she made the whole process almost worry free. We have told everyone we know about her & how great she is to work with & if they’re thinking about selling she’s the one you want as your realtor!!! Thank you Eleanor you truly are the best & so is your whole staff!!”


“Eleanor is the best!!!!!!!!!! She got us into every house we wanted so see ASAP. When you look at as many houses as we did, you have to see your agent a lot, which means you need to be comfortable around them. Eleanor is now considered part of our family. She found every flaw and made sure the house we wanted was what we got. The closing process was fairly quick and she updated me as often as she could. I will never use any other agency. They are the best!”


“I can’t rave highly enough about Eleanor and her team. During every step of the process she went above and beyond. I was not in MI for the majority of the process and she walked me through every step. Never getting frustrated with my million questions. Eleanor is patient, always available to clients, and a tremendous source of knowledge.”

Cindy P.

“Great team, professional, helpful, photographer wonderful work. From start to finish.”


“Fantastic service, very professional; made the whole process as smooth and painless as possible.”


“I was extremely impressed by the level of service provided. Eleanor is experienced, professional, hard working and a pleasure to work with. It was refreshing to work with someone so customer oriented and accommodating. The only thing I regret is that I did not also use her as my seller’s agent or take her recommendation regarding lenders since she networks with other outstanding professionals. She definitely sets the standard for the industry. You could not find a better realtor!”


“Eleanor has been very helpful in identifying opportunities for investment properties!”

Chelsea and Dillion

“We recently sold our home and bought a home with the help of Peter MacIntyre and his team. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Peter was our sellers agent and priced the home appropriately. We had showings requests within a few hours and offers coming in within a few weeks that were at or above asking price. Eleanor was our buyers agent and we cannot say enough good things about her. We looked at a lot of homes before we found the right one. She was very patient with us and VERY knowledgeable whenever we had questions. Her expertise goes way beyond what a “typical” agent does. There were a few hiccups during our sale and purchase that neither party could control, but having them on our side made the process so much easier. If you’re looking for a team that you can rely on and will go the extra mile to make it happen if needed, this is it! We are now enjoying our dream home and couldn’t be happier with our decision. Thanks guys!”

Richard & Yolanda

“I want to thank you and your staff for your professional services. Your cooperation and keeping my wife abreast of any current developments facilitated not only a smooth closing but extreme satisfaction. We would without any hesitation recommend your services to any of our friends. Every detail was handled promptly which is the reason why any enterprise should and receive full recommendation. Your staff and personal interest were most appreciated.”

Andrea & Todd

“Eleanor, we want to thank you for all your help with our purchasing of our new home! Your patience and expertise has been invaluable! We will recommend you to anyone we may meet that is house hunting or selling and we know they will be in excellent hands!”


“We interviewed the most highly rated Realtors in the greater Lansing area. Our decision to choose MacIntyre and Cowen proved to be the absolute best choice. Peter was our selling agent and we had multiple showings within the first 48 hours and 1 offer. We accepted a 2nd offer (over asking price) within 4 days of sale. We had previously had the house on the market the year prior for a lessor price with another Realtor with no success. Peter is focused on their firm being the very best it can be giving their associates training in many fields for their success and yours.
Eleanor was our buyer’s agent. Although our home purchase was not on a grand scale I really cannot say enough of the attention she gave us looking for a new home. As someone that is knowledgeable with the building trades I was amazed at the construction/mechanical knowledge Eleanor possesses. She answered every question we had and they were many. She and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with and were with us every step of the way.. Eleanor once mentioned to me about wanting to be someone’s Realtor for life. I am that someone.”

Tyler C.

“We worked with both Peter MacIntyre and Eleanor Cowen on selling and buying our house. Peter was our selling agent and did a fantastic job in helping us price the home and prepare it for viewing to sell fast. Our home was on the market for a total of 48 hours before we had 3 offers, all at or over our asking price. Eleanor was an amazing buying agent. She was patient, willing to answer the (many) questions that we had throughout the process and even helped steer us towards our new home when we thought the numbers wouldn’t work. Together, the MacIntyre & Cowen team was excellent and made the selling and buying process as stress free as it could possibly be. Highly recommend!”

Deb K.

“Eleanor Cowen was my agent and I would use her again in a heart beat. It was a very fast and easy purchase. Eleanor was quick to respond to any question and made sure that everything was taken care of so that I didn’t have to worry about anything.”
