About Ellen

I am a California native, born in San Rafael, and grew up in the East Bay. I moved to Sonoma County when I was accepted into the teaching credential program at Sonoma State University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts, teaching credential, and Master of Arts. I enjoyed teaching elementary school for many years at Wilson School in Petaluma and made a lot of great friends.

I obtained my real estate sales license in 2006 and had two professions going for over six years. I retired from teaching in 2012 and am delighted to have joined Compass as a full-time sales associate in their Petaluma office. I love being in real estate, meeting new people, and helping them achieve their real estate dreams.

For the last 25 years, my husband Dennis and I have lived in Dillon Beach, a special coastal community in Marin County. We enjoy visits from our three grown children and six grandchildren.  

As a licensed real estate agent, I have handled listing and sales transactions all over Sonoma, Napa, and Marin counties. I consider myself a real estate area specialist for coastal communities, especially Dillon Beach, Oceana Marin, and Bodega Bay. Please visit my website, "Living on the Sonoma-Marin Coast"

I bring my great communication skills, honesty, patience, and sense of humor to the table when it comes to buying and selling real estate. But don't be fooled by my sense of humor; I am an excellent listener, a skilled negotiator, and can get transactions closed.

Whether you are looking for that great vacation getaway home or your new residence, I am here to help. I am skilled at representing buyers and sellers separately or both in the same transaction.

Give me a call or send me an email. Let's talk and get started on selling your home and/or finding you a new home!

I am not just your realtor; I am your neighbor!
