Ellen was with me through a very long and grueling process, always keeping me up to date, responding to my emails. She worked hard to be sure my house was sold. It was a short sale so it was difficult getting buyer after buyer then losing one buyer and getting another and waiting for the mortgage company to accept. But she was diligent and patient and did a great job.

I just wish we could of negotiated with the seller more on some things we needed done before we bought. This was different for us that we didn't get to talk person to person with the seller and that they did not want to help with any changes we felt they needed to do. I do understand it was a fore-closer and as is but it was bought from a bank that was not willing to help in anyway. That I don't understand they make it very hard for people to negotiate. I do think Ellen did all she could but this would of been worth it to us to be able to talk. Marlena McAleer

From the very first time I met Ellen - a top notch professional. Very kind. Very patient. She knew not to offer unsolicited opinions - even though I like people telling me what they think. She did offer information that was helpful to me and did keep in touch throughout this process. She is a winner.

Ellen is very attentive and knowledgeable about the selling market. She quickly listed our house at a very reasonable price which aided us in selling our home to our first clients! We sold our house basically within hours of posting it on-line. Ellen is very dedicated in getting her clients the money they deserve for the home they are selling!

We recently relocated to the Chicagoland area. Ellen helped us find the most appropriate areas for our family's needs. She patiently showed us house after house and highlighted pros and cons of each house without pushing us to buy. She is really knowledgeable about the whole process and once we found a house, she helped us settle in beyond the call of duty.

Ellen was absolutely wonderful!! I highly recommend her. I was new to buying a home in a challenging market. Ellen brought me up to speed and navigated me through the difficult processes. I ended up in the home and neighborhood I wanted! She was extremely good at identifying focal points in each house both good and bad. I hope to never have to move again but if I do I will track Ellen down!

Ellen exhibited a high level of profesionalism with excellent knowledge of the local real estate market. She has provided us with excellent customer service by answering all questions ASAP relative to the transaction. She had introduced people (legal and financing) that help us pull through a tight closing schedule - less than 35 days from contract agreement. I understand that they are not part of ZIP realty but they are an excellent team. Purchasing a REO property is not complicated as I thought it would be. Thank you very much Ellen.

She was very patient with us even though it was a very long process. Your company should be proud to have her as an employee. We would recommend her to everyone. We want to thank her finding us the perfect home.

We have worked with Ellen recently for both purchasing an investment property and helping us find a tenant for another property we own. Ellen is the best realtor we have ever worked with. She was totally on top of things from start to finish on our recent purchase. She helped schedule our inspection and even called utilities to make sure they were on since this was a foreclosure. She worked with our bank and our attorney, all the time keeping us informed and making sure things were moving along smoothly and on schedule all the way to closing. On our other property Ellen found us a great tenant in less than a month. She is a pleasure to work with and will really go the extra mile for you. We plan on using her again in the future for all our real estate needs.

Buying a house can be very complicated and stressfull. Ellen helped my husband and I every step of the way. She was always available when we had questions and referred us to a great lawyer and inspector. She was on the ball and kept things moving. Thanks to her great negotiating skills we were able to get the house under the apprasial value. I feel greatful to have such a wonderful realtor on my side! She truely cares about her clients. I'm more than satisfied with her and will definitely reccomend her to my family and friends.
