"We Stand Behind Our Service And Ahead Of Our Competion!"

As a lifelong Norfolk resident for generations, I have seen changes from tolls on tunnels and freeways to the removal of those tolls; a struggling downtown to a booming revival of downtown with the creation of our own Norfolk Tides semi-professional baseball team and development of MacArthur Mall and Light Rail.

I am a graduate of Maury High School and Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I began my career in Real Estate in 1986 which has grown and developed along with my family-my husband Randy, son Randall and daughter Jean-Taylor. I am currently a member of the Winner's Circle and President's Club, a former member of the Redwood Junior Garden Club, past president of the Parents Advisory Comnmittee for the swim team at Norfolk Yacht and Country Club and presently enjoy Jazzercise 3-4 times a week.

My partner Jeanette Tinkham and I are an energetic team and have shared our business transactions with each other since 2002. Together we both have combined real estate sales experience of fifty-five years.

Together we pride ourselves with the challenge of matching the right buyer to the right home. And we get results. Meeting your needs and expectations from the first meeting to well after the closing is standard practice. Want Results? Call the experts Betsy Elling and Jeanette Tinkham! They are award winning Realtors who are ready to work for you. We are looking forward to your call.


Dear Special Friend, Words cannot be found to "Thank You" for your caring and understanding during the time you and Jeanette sold my family home, of eighty-three (83) years, in just 15 DAYS!!! I put my "future" in your hands and you "came through" in so many ways. Your knowledge, plus your professional skills, brought a calmness within me. I knew that I had made the right decision to sell Best Wishes Always, Elaine

From the very beginning, you advised us and helped us benefit from your many years of experience in real estate. You worked tirelessly on our behalf and had endless energy during our many outings looking for the best home for us. You answered all of our questions and we trusted her. You are truly a professional. My husband and I found her to be an invaluable resource in our search for a home. I would recommend her to anyone who was making the important decision of buying a home or property. Roger and Angela

Now that the house is sold and settlement is completed, Jay and I would like to express our thanks for all you both did. Everything was handled in such a professional manner. We haven't had any real estate dealings for a long time and your real estate experience and knowledge certainly helped and worked for us. You both were so easy to work with. Jay and Pat

We really appreciate all of your hard work, support and kindness during the acquisition of our new home-We truly love it! You truly are a professional in your field. Eric and Lisa

Tim and I would like to thank you for doing such a wonderful job selling our home. Everything went so smooth from beginning to end. Thank you for always being available to answer our questions. Stacie and Tim

Dear Jeanette and Betsy, I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how MUCH I appreciated all of your hard work in selling Major Avenue! Having purchased the house through William E. Wood as well, I feel as if I really hit the jackpot since the sale was so stress free. Your expertise was invaluable in pricing the house, your wonderful attitudes were helpful in keeping jittery nerves in check, and your SERVICE topped the list! (Especially that critical week when you made sure the contractors were in place to make the repairs we needed while I was off playing in Texas.) Please know how grateful I am that you made the whole experience of selling my home so easy. Rest assured that when the time comes for another real estate transfer, or if anyone I know is in the market to sell or purchase, I feel confident that you will be the first call we make! Kind Regards, Amy

Dear Jeanette and Betsy, Just a little note to thank you all for all the help and advice on the "Operation Real Estate Sale." You all were so much help and the basket of "goodies", oh! my was it a delightful collection. Thanks again and God Bless! Betty and "Toby" P.S. You all will have to come and see my house. Lynn did a wonderful job on everything.
