"I like to think of Ellen as someone akin to Henry Clay (The Great Compromiser), but in more of a real estate sense. In a past transaction it felt as if both Buyer and Seller were at an impasse. She addressed a complicated situation from a new, creative, veteran perspective which added value and allowed both parties to walk away happy and successful. That's what you want in a Broker."
