Ellen was a huge help to me in taking care of all of the little details of the buying and selling process so that I was not overwhelmed. She listened carefully so that she could offer us the best solutions for our needs. I was extremely impressed with her work in helping us stage our home which we were selling. Because of the attention to detail, we had multiple offers on the home days before we even had a chance to do the open house that we had scheduled for it.
Ellen grew up surrounded by the real estate business. In her immediate family, she has a mortgage underwriter, loan officer, real estate attorney, engineer and Realtor. True to her roots, Ellen is a number-cruncher at heart and takes pleasure in analyzing the financial trends of the housing industry and helping her clients to understand how those trends affect the sale of their property. Ellen’s honest, down to earth approach allows clients to make informed and intelligent decisions to get the most out of their offers and negotiations.
“I love to cook! Especially if I grew the food myself or if it came from one of my farming friends. I spent 4 years on a small hobby farm in Granville County, growing nearly everything our family ate. That experience was transformational for me. Although family circumstances forced us to move back to the city, I hold the memories close, grow what I can on my half acre subdivision lot and live vicariously through my clients, many of whom are realizing their farming and urban farming dreams.”
Ellen lives with her husband, Timothy Pitts, and their four children in Raleigh.
