About Nina
Nina Hennessey & Ellen Saland 

Working as a team since 2008, and with combined experience of over 41 years, real estate professionals Nina Hennessey and Ellen Saland  have earned a stellar reputation as top brokers throughout the city, having sold in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. RealTrends/America's Best recognized them in June 2022 & 2023 as being among the top 1.49% of licensed real estate professionals nationwide. 


While Nina and Ellen had known each other for 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 presentation , we learned that we work together extraordinarily well," Nina recalls. "We had an immediate 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!"

Nina and Ellen 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. COMPASS Concierge can provide the funds for  cosmetic renovation, painting, furniture rental and other related services with a no interest loan to our sellers.

Nina and Ellen are also Certified Negotiation Experts.

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."

Nina lives with her husband in a co-op on the Upper West Side, where she is a member of the board. She has two children. Ellen lives in a co-op on the Upper West Side with her husband and has three children. Ellen's dog, Orzo, is the face of the monthly Ellen & Nina Events Letter. 

Nina is a principal of the Collaborative THKS team which in 2022 was 85th in Sales Volume of mid-sized teams in New York State.
