Ellen recently helped me sell my Somerville home of 33 years. I came to value her responsiveness, professionalism and good humor. When I first decided to sell I was overwhelmed with the process of cleaning out my house and deciding how much renovation was necessary before I put the house on the market. Ellen gave me encouragement and advice that helped me empty the house for sale in 3 months. Once the house was ready Ellen devised a selling strategy that got me many bids in just one week and a closing about a month after the house was put on the market. Ellen immediately answered both e-mail and phone requests. She gave me good referrals to people who could help when I needed a dumpster and when a storm knocked over a large tree in my backyard.  Ellen did whatever it took to move the process along quickly. She is a great realtor to work with.
