Ellen is a full-time realtor with 17 years of real estate experience in the Florida Keys. As an expert Sotheby's International Realty Advisor, she offers her clients local market expertise, a commitment to quality personal service and the ability to reach buyers and sellers worldwide.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Key West real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently.
Ellen was born in Berlin, Germany. She has a Master’s degree in North and South American Studies and Journalism. During her University years she lived in Berlin; Cambridge, England; and Costa de la Luz, Spain. In 1998, she visited and fell in love with the beauty of the Florida Keys. A year later she moved to Key West and started her real estate career in 2003. She has been a full time residential and commercial real estate agent ever since.
She offers Sellers a comprehensive international marketing program which includes professional internet marketing, print advertising in local and exclusive national and international magazines, virtual tours, Video, Facebook and YouTube exposure, open houses, realtor caravans and more. With buyers, she works exclusively for clients in search of new properties guiding them through the buying process, understanding and knowing the specific needs. She will help you selecting and viewing properties, negotiating on your behalf, managing inspections, and permits, and connecting them to mortgage and insurance experts, contractors, land planners until the closing and after. She is also a designated short sale and foreclosure specialist.
Ellen and her husband have two wonderful boys and they are all very involved in the community of Key West.

I can honestly say that Ellen was the best realtor I have ever worked with! from the first day we met she was on target with everything that needed to be done to sell our home. The property reselling had been on the market twice before with another real estate company an agent. We literally had only one offer in over a year and very few views. When Ellen got our listing she went right to work and produced amazing photographs and a great advertising campaign.We had 3 contracts on this house in less than a year! Due to various buyer issues the first 2 contracts did not go through but Ellen persevered and on November 1, 2019 we sold our home much to our delight! I wholeheartedly recommend Ellen to be your realtor if you are trying to sell your home. I am sure she would be fantastic if you are a buyer as well as she is so well versed in the real estate market in Key West.

Ellen understood our needs in showing us the properties with our requirements. She was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable of areas and honest about the properties pros and cons. She was on top of every detail and was quick to respond to any of our requests. We could not have had a better realtor.
