Ellen + Janis Real Estate
Exclusive Real Estate Agents

The Ellen + Janis Team consists of locally focused, experienced Realtors® and their in-house marketing staff united in a common goal.  “To give exceptional service that exceeds our clients’ expectations and provide them with all the relevant information they need in order to make an informed decision.” 

Founded on the values of honesty, integrity and professionalism, the team has built a stellar reputation as a consistent market leader in the communities it serves. Real estate transactions are complex and have many different facets: sales, marketing, management, communications, and administrative work, among others. Our value proposition is that we offer a team of highly successful real estate professionals all working for you, each having unique skills and roles that complement each other. This creates a much greater service and an end result that is better than the traditional sales model where one agent attempts to be a “Jack of all trades” and juggle everything, whether they excel at it or not. Our team structure benefits both on the listing side, where we offer a dedicated marketing and operations professional who works with you to get your home ready for the market, and the buyer side, where we frequently collaborate on the best strategy to get your offer accepted.
