"We really lucked out with Ellen as our realtor! Not only is she amazingly knowledgeable and responsive, but she was also a pleasure to work with. One of the most important qualities in a realtor, when you're looking for a house (or trying to sell one) is that a realtor really listens to you and understands your needs. Ellen is incredible at that and helped us find the most incredible home. I can't recommend her enough—you'll be in the best hands if you choose to work with her!"

"Working with Ellen has been such a pleasure! She was extremely professional, quick on her responses and very detail oriented. Got the best deal I could have gotten. She made the right suggestions to get my condo ready for sale by making some improvements prior to putting it on the market. It paid off! We got two offers in the first two days it went on the market!
She has the best qualities you would want in a realtor."

"If you need a realtor look no further than Ellen! You will not regret having her on your journey for your home buying/selling/renting needs. I am active duty military who is use to moving every 2-3 years but my move to the DMV area was unlike anything I've experienced; it was challenging and overwhelming. We own a home in another state and wanted to rent in the DMV area. I found Ellen on a website for realtors who specialize in military relocations. The first time I emailed her it was a Saturday afternoon and she called me 15 minutes after the email was sent! Ellen suggested cities with great school districts, advised us on what traffic was like etc. She put up with my last-minute request and constant emailing with a professional, pleasant attitude. Not to mention she was responsive! If you call or email her, you can expect for her to pick up and get back to you ASAP! Ellen was knowledgeable, professional and went above and beyond! Y'all, I'm telling you this lady is something special! We drove up to the DMV area to lock down a rental, which meant a marathon of Ellen taking us from one house to another with a teenager and toddler in tow, in a two-day span. She found out it was my husband’s birthday and dropped off cupcakes, specialty treats and a card wishing him a happy birthday at our hotel room *insert crying emoji* In an era where customer service appears to be dead and people tend to let you down, Ellen is a breath of fresh air. Her passion for her craft is evident. If you want to work with a realtor who understands the local market, pays attention to the small details, has a vast amount of knowledge, has an engaging personality, is a great communicator and truly cares about your needs, look no further!"
