"Ellen Schwartz was nothing short of spectacular to work with! She laid out a very extensive packaging, marketing and strategy and did everything promised and more. She worked diligently with the home stager to transform the presentation of my home to widen the buyers it would appeal to. Her or her team did an every week. Her insights and knowledge of the local housing competition was extremely helpful. Specific to my pricing and bid negotiations I felt she was always working in my best interests to get me the best selling price possible. Over two years I worked with two other realtors that exhibited half the enthusiasm and effort of Ellen. Ellen gets it DONE!!" - Joe M.
"Ellen Schwartz has been my realtor for over 10 years, having helped us find tenants for a single family home 3 times over 10 years, and then sell the home this spring. Ellen is one of the hardest working people I know, and has always taken every extra step possible to maximize our or sale price. Her service went beyond what was expected, as she made countless trips to the property to meet contractors on my behalf. She has always given us honest advice, even when it might jeopardize her own , making it clear that she put our best interests ahead of her own. She even provided significant help and advice when I purchased a vacation home last year, even though she had no personal stake in the transaction. I am a Raving Fan, and am happy to recommend her without any hesitation whatsoever. " - Barry B.

"Ellen was wonderful--she worked with us to look at houses we had found, and quickly found some other ones that fit our range. She was honest and frank about the pros and cons of each, and knew the right questions to ask sellers. She was also very shrewd when it came to walking through houses and looking flaws or potential problems. Our family has used her before, and we would definitely use her again! " - Jon O.
"Ellen set realistic expectations and was very informative throughout the entire process of selling our home. She helped stage our home and gave great advice on how to maximize its appearance.

The process was handled very professionally and I would recommend Ellen to anyone selling a home .Thanks for the great job!! " - Stephanie and Jon S.
