Welcome to my Website

My goal as a Real Estate professional is to make your search for a new home or sale of your current home go as smoothly as possible.  My knowledge of the local communities and my commitment to finding you the home that truly meets your needs is what makes me the Real Estate Agent that you need.

I care about each and every client that I work with.  Trying to make what can be a very stressful time a little less stressful.  I try and give each client the information that they need to make one of the biggest decisions they are going to make.

My hope is that each of my buyers moves into their new home and looks back and is happy about the time we spent together searching for this perfect place.  And that my sellers feel a sense of calm while I help them navigate the process of selling their home in the current market.

Please call me today and let's get started on this road ahead together.


Just a few comments from previous clients:

"Ellen is truly the best real estate agent I have ever met! She works very hard, follows up immediately, and is extremely knowledgeable and honest.  I highly recommend her to other clients.  I hope I have the pleasure of working with her again one day.  I wish she could sell my house in Florida!  Warmest regards, Jill

"It was obvious to us that Ellen was very knowledgeable about the towns and properties she was showing us.  She offered valuable insight into what we were seeing that we never would have received from a less experienced realtor.  More importantly, Ellen was a calming influence on what we are now realizing has been the most stressful time in our lives, thus far.  She was patient with us and with our sometimes excitable children.  I completely underestimated the impact this move would have on my family.  There were a few days during our first week here, when Ellen was one of the only positive aspects of the experience. .... If anyone I know needs an agent in the area, I'll gladly recommend her.  There is nothing Ellen could have done better.  Please know what a valuable asset you have in her.        Sincerely, Gabriel"

"Ellen was tremendous.  She made our relocation to NJ so much easier!  We can't thank her enough for all of her assistance in finding us a home!"  Erin

Travel to New York from my Target Area

NJ Transit trains and buses to New York City are easily accessible from all the towns of my targeted market.  The future of our local rail systems will be improving in Union County.  Please visit the NJ Transit website at WWW.NJTRANSIT.COM to see plans to make the train commute to New York shorter.  These changes should increase property values in towns like Fanwood, Westfield and Cranford.
