"Ellen is an amazing person. She really listened to what we wanted in a home. She has also been very informative about many different homeowner "things". I feel like she was much more than a Realtor and would consider her a part of our family" Brandon & Lindsey O
"Ellen went above and beyond with everything!!! We were absentee owners. She helped manage repair people getting into the house without issue. She was so prompt, professional, kind and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend her!" Colin & Stacy C.
"We were worried about looking for a home. We didn't have a clear vision of what we wanted...only what we DIDN'T want. Ellen was extremely helpful by showing us a wide variety of possibilities, helping us to narrow our focus, and finally find the home we LOVED! She was patient, low-pressure, and honest. We would do it all over again...but only with Ellen and Mel Foster Co." Marty M. & Danielle H.

"Ellen was AMAZING. She treated my family like we were her own and respected our HOME and not just a house. I was always able to reach Ellen and she was very considerate of our time. My family and I moved to another state and this was emotionally difficult. Ellen was ALWAYS kind, listened, and would ask with a thoughtful heart on how we were all doing. She was THE BEST!" Tricia C.

She was very upfront with potential problems, and went the extra mile to ensure the house would be a good investment. She made the home buying process easy and stress free. Would 100% recommend!"
