Paul & Stephanie H

Ellen has years of experience and has been an active member of the community. She has extensive knowledge of the real estate market and is able to clearly explain the buying/selling process to her clients. She is professional and very detailed oriented. Ellen helped me stay focused on the important tasks needed to get my house on the market and was a great teammate. She sat down with me and went through the market analysis she had done to determine the listing price of my home.

Trisha Z B.

What can I say about Ellen?! She is the best realtor there is!!! She was very caring and thoughtful of our needs when it came to searching for our condo. We had a smaller budget, but Ellen came through for us!! Ellen went above and beyond her call of duty!! She was always there for me at any time of the day or night, texting back and forth. We have a great condo now, and it's all due to Ellen Knowlton!!
