As a first-time buyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better agent than Ellen. I first contacted Ellen last summer when I saw a condo that I liked, but in reality I wasn’t quite ready to buy yet, and in addition I had very specific tastes. Ellen understood this and continued to send me listings very selectively, but never pressured me to see any place I wasn’t interested in. When my perfect home finally came on the market last January and I wanted to make an offer quickly, Ellen worked with me at midnight to make sure that everything went through. All of her recommendations for lenders, lawyers, inspectors, and everything else were spot-on, and I never felt the stress of homebuying that some of my friends have described because Ellen made everything easy. In addition to all that, she was a lot of fun to work with and made my entire experience very positive. I recommend Ellen wholeheartedly!
