About Me About Me

"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 understand 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 (or my colleague) and represent you for all 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.

A wonderful professional experience Estate of Lape
Ellen Waterhouse was very professional and stayed on top of everything. It was nice not to have to remind an agent on what to do next, or what is next. She kept in frequent contact until the closing. Was a pleasure to work with her. thank you. Debbie Dunay Deborah Dunay
Working with Ellen Waterhouse was an absolute pleasure, she is an amazing professional, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an exceptional customer service experience. Joan & Nicholas Benevento
Our realtor Ellen Waterhouse was amazingly helpful and effective in assisting us through both the purchase and sale of our house. She helped minimize the stress of the process and made us feel well cared for - as if we were her only clients. We appreciated her professionalism, sense of humor, attention to detail and flexibility. We would recommend her to anyone without reservation. W. Jeffrey Baker
Ellen was excellent to work with. She was professional, knowledgeable and determined to find the perfect house for us. Which she did! She would go above and beyond to determine the quality of the home, including all the mechanical systems, plumbing systems, electrical, finishes, age of items and everything else that she could. Her honesty may be what we truly appreciated the most. She would give her honest opinion when it came to prices, offers, quality of the house/property, etc. This created a trust that you absolutely need when working with an agent. We loved working with Ellen and when the day comes when we are ready to sell or buy again, we know exactly where to go! Chris Rolli

Ellen Waterhouse did an outstanding job. Ellen was always available and went above and beyond to help get my home sold. Rita Damico
Ellen Waterhouse was a professional at all times. She went above and beyond to help make the sale happen. Ellen's cheery smile and pleasant disposition made this transaction seamless and painless. I wish all business transactions would be this way. We used Ellen to purchase our current home in Litchfield four and a half years ago and found her to to exhibit all of the items listed above to be true then, so it was a natural to go back to her for our Real Estate needs. You should be very proud to have Ellen on your team. Estate of Evan Williams
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 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! Hidden
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. Hidden
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. Lucy
