From my days at Mizzou studying Housing Design and working for a custom builder, I knew I loved real estate and would always find joy being involved with housing. SLU School of Law and a few years honing my contract and negotiating skills with a fortune 500 company sharpened my skill set, and opening and operating a Residential Real Estate Appraisal Company with my husband for nearly two decades has given me invaluable insight into valuing property.

Ellen listed our house for sale. She came for a interview first and blew us away with her knowledge of the area houses for sale, market and strategy for sale. she gave suggestions when asked. When we needed advice, or knowledge, she was right there to give guidance. She was helpful is decreasing my anxiety during the entire sale process.

I was a first time home buyer and really had no idea what I was getting into when purchasing home. Ellen quickly responded to texts and was always available to contact via cell phone. I trusted Ellen to help me make this very big decision and in the end her professionalism and intelligence helped me find the perfect first home. Words cannot express how grateful I am for her and now I have a beautiful home that is exactly what I was looking for! She is very well versed in the legal side of purchasing a home and understands the market thoroughly. She was fun to work with and very easy to understand. Now my sister is looking for her first home and I have no reservations recommending her to my own family. Please consider her for your next realtor, you wont regret it!
Couldn't have been a better experience/relationship!!!! Very knowledgeable, hard working and nice to work with, would highly recommend, and would use again in a heartbeat!!!!!
Ellen was the best to work with! Everything was extremely easy and streamlined and we are happy in our new home! I would absolutely recommend! The home buying process was very stress free thanks to Ellen!
Thanks for your patience as we figured out our home needs, and thanks for your determination as we went through a difficult purchase. We appreciate you and your professionalism.

Ellen was (and is) a professional at every phase of the process for us. She helped us navigate all of the obstacles, pitfalls, speedbunps, as well as the thrills and excitment of buying a new home and selling out former one. It could not have been a better experience. We got we wanted for our house and we ended up with the home of our dreams. Grateful.
Michael and Heidi Leopold
Ellen was amazing to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the industry and market. Ellen had to help us in several unique and stressful situations. All of which she handled for us with ease. Ellen assisted us to price our home to sell, sell our home quickly, and buy our new home in the exact location we wanted. I have recommended her to everyone I know who is selling/buying a home. I cannot stress enough how much Ellen did for us and how pleased we were with our experience.
Jeff and Sarah Keuhnle
She did a masterful job of educating us in the home-buying process. She listened but offered her advice at key moments. She was very responsive and communicative. She effectively used e-signing, which streamlined much of the work. She recommended many good contacts to help us with inspections and post-buying resources. We highly recommend Ellen without any reservations.
James Comninellis and Tiffanie Fowlkes
Extremely knowledgeable in real estate and the greater St Louis area. Always ready to take my many calls! Highly recommend her!! Ellen had many contacts such as painters, electricians and plumbers which came in very handy.
Ellen is so knowledgeable about St. Louis. We were new to the area, and we're so thankful we chose Ellen to help us house hunt. She was so thoughtful, quick to respond, and eager to answer our questions. We loved working with her!
Josh and Melissa Hatcher

Top Listing Agent CBG-Chesterfield West
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
