"Put my knowledge and experience in real estate sales, construction and marketing to work for you."

I have gathered a tremendous amount of real estate expertise owning and operating my own brokerage for 26 years, initially with my late husband Harry Waterhouse, and then solely for 14 years. As a lifetime resident of Litchfield County I know the market place. Additionally I am passionate and extremely knowledgeable about real estate as a product. Decades of experience have lent me knowledge of all parts of a home. With that, in 1986, I took great pleasure in the construction of my own residence. Prior to real estate I worked in advertising for the Waterbury Republican American newspaper giving me a useful knowledge base in marketing and a broadened perspective of the industry.

As your dedicated real estate advisor, you can rely on me to provide you with the information you need to make decisions regarding your most prized asset. I make it a point to be present and represent you for all of my showings and home inspections; a dying art in this business yet an advantage that I feel my clients should not have to go without. I also recognize that consistent and clear communication is of the utmost importance so you will never be left in the dark. Most importantly I always look out for my client's best interests, and I truly go above and beyond to make the transaction stress free and efficient for all taking part.

Testimonials

Ellen Waterhouse did a great job. We enjoyed working with her.

W. Jeffrey Baker

Ellen Waterhouse did a great job. We enjoyed working with her.

W. Jeffrey Baker

Really enjoyed working with Ellen. She was always professional, yet always personable and friendly. Several times she was able to gently talk me down when I'd become agitated over something, and she'd explain why things were happening the way they were. Always helpful and cheerful... ;-)

Brian & Cheryl Ziff

Ellen has been working with us for years to buy a house in Litchfield. She's honest and hard working. A pleasure to have as our real estate agent.

Theresa Durso & Jean-Ives Magnan

Ellen was a great resource to us with plenty of local market knowledge. We worked well as a team in a tough market. She was very detailed, informative and prompt when it came time to close as well. A true partner.

Thomas & Margaret Crichton

We would highly recommend Ellen Waterhouse at William Pitt Sotheby's in Litchfield Ct. We felt confident that Ellen understood the real estate market and advised us accordingly. She assisted us on staging our home and hired a professional photographer which resulted in a great response to our listing. Ellen was always attentive, organized and professional and was present at every house showing to answer any questions from prospective buyers and their agents. This was not our first time selling a house, but it was our first time having an agent that really knew her business. Thank you Ellen!!

Lynn & Brenda Peters, Happy client

Ellen, thank you so very much!! I made the best choice in selecting Ellen to List and Sell my mother's home of 73 years. I knew we had some challenges to overcome in preparing to sell and with her guidance and knowledge they are were resolved quickly. She is a absolute delight to work with and has a special caring character. Her knowledge of the real estate process from start to end... listing to contract to closing... is why she is a true professional and top producer. Thank you from Myrtle, Sherry, Sheila and Vin.

Sherry Dobos Carrigan

Ellen helped us sell our third home, so we have had experience. Ellen couldn't have been any better! She far exceeded my expectations for what a realtor does and far exceeded my prior experience with other realtors. She went above and beyond to help and ensure our property was shown and cared for during the *entire* process. She was always available to answer a question (no matter how silly) and to provide us with frequent updates as the process moved along. I highly recommend Ellen!

N/A

Ellen was an absolute pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable about all facets related to the sale of our house in Northfield Ct.. All of the various realtors, contractors, inspectors, etc. that become involved in the sale of a property commented on how knowledgeable We would absolutely recommend Ellen!

MP

Ellen was awesome! She went above and beyond in showing us homes, working with us, and making sure we knew all the disclosures about each property. She told us the pros and cons of each home we looked at, rather than avoiding the negatives like our previous realtor. She was clearly interested in finding the right match for us and went to great lengths to do so. We would recommend her to anyone!

This is the 2nd time we have used Ellen and absolutely love the way she works. She gets the job done and keeps her clients posted step by step and will help in anyway she can from start to finish.

Kim

Ellen did something most of the other agents in GOSHEN and Litchfield haven't been able to do .... She sold my home and did it with professionalism .... She was there for every showing and through the closing and sale process , she was knowledgable about the area , realistic in pricing and she always followed up with results of prospective shoppers after every showing . I would list any other properties I have in the future with Ellen.

My husband and I looked for the right house for over a year in a wide area from Cheshire to Bantam. Ellen was very patient, made appt to see everyone we wanted to look at. When we finally made a decision, she promptly got the ball rolling and was extremely helpful throughout the whole negotiation process to closing. She's very knowledgeable in her field and most importantly, very responsive to any question or procedure. Highly recommend.

JC

I highly recommend Ellen Waterhouse. She has sold two houses for us and is an excellent agent in all respects. She is thoughtful, caring and extremely knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

JM

Ellen has been my agent for the past 15 years. She's assisted me in closing over 12 transactions of buying/selling homes, land, investment property and foreclosures. I find her to be very dedicated to her profession, extremely knowledgeable and most importantly, very responsive to clients' requests. I will continue to refer and use Ellen as my agent.

Judith

We have had multiple dealings with this agent for buying several types of properties over the years - she is easy to deal with, very knowledgeable about the properties as well as the process and is able to keep things progressing smoothly.

L.L.

I give Ellen Waterhouse my highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell or buy a property. Ellen possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent real estate agent, she knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, professional and personable. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job and has that perfect balance of knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you.
