Testimonials

Ellen was awesome and extremely helpful every step of the way. Wouldn’t have been possible without her.

Najeeb Ali

Ellen was fantastic to work with and I've work with her again on any real estate transaction! She guided me through quickly preparing my home for the market and once I identified a new property, was extremely helpful in the mortgage process. I really appreciated her no nonsense style and assessment of the marketplace. I'm a Fan!

Mary D. Houghton

Outstanding in all respects. Helped us tremendously in buying and selling our house and getting us moved in. A real superstar

Charles and Naomi Porten

Ellen was phenomenal -- such a pleasure to work with, incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable! We will buy our future homes through Ellen!

Ryan and Ashley McManus

Ellen is amazing. My wife and I moved to Rye in September 2019 and could not have done it without Ellen's expertise and knowledge of Rye and the surrounding areas in Westchester. She is extremely committed to her work and was available to us 24/7 - even taking calls on vacation. We simply would not have been in as good of a situation without her. Additionally, she's knowledgeable across a variety of transactions and we have purchased as well as rented with her as our representation. A+ and highly recommended.

Charles Luke

Ellen Stern is the best real estate broker I have ever worked with, and I have worked with many. Throughout our entire search for a county house which spanned ten months start to finish, Ellen was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, patient and really had a wide range of expertise to share. She understood completely what we were looking for and never wasted our time on anything that didn’t have potential for us . She never tried to push us in to anything that would have not made sense for us, and was really open to exploring many types of houses so that we could really understand what would most meet our needs . She was never pushy but always straightforward in a way that any client would want . My husband and I could not have been happier with her services as a broker and highly recommend Ellen to anyone looking to buy a home in any of the areas Ellen works . She is honest , fair , and also a lovely person to be around during what can be a stressful, though ultimately rewarding experience . We could not give her a higher rating ! 5 stars for sure !

Margaret B

Ellen helped make our move from NYC to the suburbs seamless. Her knowledge of the area, amazing personality and diligence to find us the best home was unmatched. We will use her (and recommend) her without question. We love Ellen!

Sarah

Ellen is fantastic! High energy, smart and very knowledgable of the market. She analyzed our property and was able to accurately price our house to generate serious interest and buyers. Her commitment of her time, personal attention and presence for open houses was greatly appreciated. Her follow up with potential buyers and her professionalism make her a pleasure to work with. Anyone looking to sell or buy a house should give her a call!

Rye Seller and Buyer

Ellen recently sold my home and was an absolute joy to work with. She knows the area's real estate market like no one else. I worked with and interviewed other realtors and Ellen was by far the best. She sold my home in a timely manner and for price that made me and family very happy. Ellen will be my go to realtor on all my future real estate transactions.

Rye Brook Seller

Ellen truly embodies the word “professional”. An excellent broker, Ellen represented and mentored us as we made our journey out of NYC to Westchester. Ellen is very knowledgeable of the area, resourceful, comprehensive, methodological, strategic, straightforward and never pushy – characteristics and an operating style that we certainly appreciated as two busy working professionals (with two young children) in NYC. Ellen was quick to assess and understand our needs, and went far and beyond to educated us on how to best conduct our search and transition to a suburban lifestyle. From day one, we always felt assured that Ellen had our best interest at heart and kept us on track to find and contract our home in just a few months. We can honestly say that the best part of our home search is finding our “perfect” home (after looking at over 30 houses in the tri-state area) and working with Ellen as our broker and advocate during our search.

Rye Brook Buyer

Without a doubt, Ellen Stern is the most professional, hard working, and insightful agent with whom I have worked over the last two decades on multiple home transactions. Now more than ever, with the complexity and competitiveness of the market, it matters who you use. Ellen has exceptional knowledge of the marketplace but what truly separates her is her unique ability to understand the specific needs and wants of my family from the beginning. I know that I would not be in my current home without her experience and skill. I don't know when my next move will be but I know exactly who the agent is.

Rye Brook Buyer

Ellen is the hardest working, smartest broker out there. She works tirelessly on your behalf and is knowledgeable about all aspects of the business, beyond just showing houses. She is a great negotiator and makes all aspects of the process go smoothly. In fact, we were out of the state when we bought and sold a house. This is all due to Ellen's tireless effort and round the clock service. I do not hesitate to recommend Ellen for all your real estate needs. She is fantastic!
