"If you are looking to move to or within LA, look no further than Nancy Ellin! I moved from London to LA with my husband and three teenagers and there is no way my move could have been so easy, successful and above all, happy, without Nancy. Not only did Nancy take enormous care in helping us find our dream home that was perfect for our family, Nancy also opened up her rolodex and gave me every contact I could ever need in such a move. This included everything from an interior designer to an air conditioning specialist and a plumber. The most special part of working with Nancy was that she took our whole family under her wing and made sure we were all so well looked after throughout our transition to LA. and beyond. She listened to all our requirements and took them all in to deep consideration. I cannot recommend Nancy enough and am honoured to call her my very dear friend. ." - Amanda G.

"Nancy is an incredible agent and a pleasure to work with. She guided us through the sale of our first home while helping us find our current home. Nancy worked diligently in pricing and negotiating our house sale. She was relentless with the purchase of our current home, beating out multiple offers. They say in LA it’s all about who you know and Nancy knows everyone. Understandably, Nancy is well liked and respected by other professionals and her clients." - Melissa W.

"Working with Nancy Ellin is a joy. Spunky, insightful, and professional, Nancy helped us navigate a move from New York to L.A. with tireless energy. No question was too big or too small, and she guided us through every step of the process with a smile. She knows her field inside and out. I look forward to working with her again and would proudly recommend her to anyone in need of a top L.A. broker. /i>" - Isabel R.

"Thorough, solution-oriented, creative and fun, Nancy Ellin is an exceptional broker. She brought a ton of value to the table and I’d recommend her to anybody who is looking to rent or buy residential in the LA area. " - Jeff F.

"Nancy was an awesome broker. She was helpful every step of the way and really took the time to understand what I was looking for and to make sure to only present me with options that would fit. She found my dream home, and even helped to decide how to furnish the home. Finding a home can be a stressful process, but working with Nancy was the exact opposite! Thanks for everything!" - Nick W.

"When I decided to leave Oregon’s cold and wet weather for warmer, sunnier southern California, my first instinct was to reach out to Nancy. I wasn’t sure if she could act as my broker as I was looking in Santa Barbara but if she could I knew I wanted her. Not because she was my friend but because over years of visiting her, I had seen first hand her diligence and dedication in action. I went to open houses with her to scout out potential homes for one or another of her clients. She would make sure the house “fit” the client in reality and not just on paper. She would talk to the listing broker and get the whole story about the property. I have owned several homes and none of my brokers EVER did this for me. When I asked her why, she said she never wanted to waste anyone’s time by showing them a house that wouldn’t work for them. Like not enough space or bedrooms, despite the description. Since I was buying in Santa Barbara, Nancy referred me to a fabulous agent she works with in that area. Nancy’s relationships in areas outside of her LA territory are clearly in parallel to her standards, which is why I would recommend and trust her in any real estate transaction. " - Heather W.

"Working with Nancy has been a great experience! She was extremely knowledgeable about both the Aspen and LA neighborhoods that we were interested in. When we were looking for my son in LA, we were coming from out of town and we had a limited amount of time. Nancy was able to efficiently setup appointments for us to see many properties. She knew the market and neighborhood so she really helped us make our decision. She was extremely skilled at brokering the deal so we got what we wanted. For our Aspen house, we were looking remotely and Nancy was able to find us exactly what we wanted in our price range. She is a warm and wonderful person so it made it so enjoyable to work with her!" - Elyse N.

"When Nancy Ellin helped me find my first apartment in LA, I was working as an assistant at a talent agency and had very small windows each days to see apartments; yet Nancy made it work every time we needed to see something, and quickly found me an amazing apartment, with everything I wanted in it, under budget. The best." - Jake F.
