"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.

★★★★★
"I met Ellen through a referral and was immediately attracted to her enthusiasm, knowledge, and selling strategy. I was impressed by her professionalism, confidence and strategic understanding of the marketplace. I found her candid, trustworthy and a strong negotiator, who understood and appreciated the uniqueness of my home and determined to sell at full value. As a local in the Katonah/Lewisboro community, Ellen priced my home to meet the demands of the market and we received an offer in 7 days upon being listed. My home was treated as if it were her own, knowing every detail about the house and how to convey this to all prospective buyers. Her vast network and digital ingenuity helped her navigate through pandemic logistics in order to strategically reach our target market. Ellen knows what it takes to get things done, and goes above and beyond in accomplishing the goals. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling their home. " - Suzy S.

★★★★★
"Ellen is extremely professional and gets the job done. She is honest and knowledgeable with the numbers when it comes to pricing a home and doesn't just tell you what you want to hear. Because of this she was able to sell our home quickly after signing with her. Ellen goes the extra mile to get the job done. She went to the Town to retrieve paperwork me when I couldn't get there to ensure that the closing would take place in a timely manner. She gets back to you quickly and is always on top of the situation. I would definitely recommend Ellen! " - Remy H.

★★★★★
"Ellen is the consummate professional. We have moved 4 times in the last 5 years and we have dealt with several real estate agents in the process. No one compares to Ellen- she's in a league of her own. She is prompt, courteous, efficient, knowledgeable, personable and attentive to detail. She has an uncanny ability to see what each client wants and helps you look it. I am not one to write reviews online but wanted to make sure to write this Ellen because she deserves it more than anyone I know. Thank you Ellen! " - Allison and Andres L.

★★★★★
"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. During negotiations Ellen informed us that the price we originally asked was not realistic and to readjust it to make the home more decirable to buyers. 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.
