The Ellen Saland & Nina Hennessey Team
Working as a team since 2008, and with combined experience of over 41
years, real estate professionals Ellen Saland and Nina Hennessey
earned a stellar reputation as top brokers throughout the city, having sold
in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx.
While Ellen and Nina have known each other years — they met while they
were stage performers cast in the same show — they kept their real estate
careers separate until the opportunity to pitch a major listing together
came along. "During that initial listing, we learned that we work together
extraordinarily well," Nina recalls. "We had an immediate and organic
understanding of collaboration. We both have a shared work ethic, shared
values and a strong sense of what's fair. We were able to maintain respect
for each other and for our friendship, and most importantly, we really
liked working together!"
Ellen and Nina strive to understand exactly what each individual buyer or
seller needs for their unique situation and are committed to standing by
clients as long as it takes. "We are happy to be an emotional support for
our buyers and sellers," Ellen explains. "We are with them the whole way,
and sometimes we are their trusted advisors for years before their purchase
or sale becomes a reality."
Clients benefit from their incredibly well-rounded, full-service team
approach. Nina is a certified staging professional and together at no cost
for this service, Ellen and Nina stage their exclusive listings as needed.

Where Nina is exceptionally detail-oriented, Ellen likes to work at a
quick, efficient pace. As Nina sums up, "We are passionate about being the
best we can be on behalf of our buyers and sellers. Residential real estate
is very emotional territory. Coming from theater backgrounds, we are
adamant about keeping the drama on the stage — not in the transaction."
