Full time real estate sales with eighteen years. USMC vet. Networking and new business drives me. My customers derive the benefit of my hard work and skill that goes into every aspect real estate.
I I am very conscientious, and I will always return phone calls in a very timely manner, and I will always be able and willing to problem solve whenever the need arises. I am a trusted professional amongst my peers and associates, and network of friends and associates. I love what I do and could not imagine a more satisfying career.
I was born and raised in New England and worked for Metropolitan Insurance Company for many years, in the Rhode Island and Tampa head offices. I am a military veteran and served our country in the United States Marine Corps for over a decade. I have relocated several times while in the military, so I have a personal understanding of military relocation and the strain that it puts on families. My mother spent nearly 40 years in her successful Real Estate sales career and I believe that I have gained experience from her as well. My goal is to make your transition to our area run as smoothly as possible.
In today's market (2011 and 2012) it is essential to stay attuned to current market trends within my area. I employ old school principles along with new data every day. I consider my job to be that of serving you the customer. The only way to accomplish that is to analyse new listings and sales trends every day.
Over the recent past, although some of us have done short sales years ago, before most knew what they were or what they entailed, today most of us in the Real Estate field have at the very least, gotten a general working knowledge of the mortgage default industry. I personally have an electronic equivalent of an entire Rolodex for each mortgage company short sale dept on hand when needed.>There are also many helpful websites that can be utilized for updated information.
Consider that even on the very simplest transaction, on the surface has no obviously particular issues, however upon final close examination, many issues to overcome are the norm, rather than the exception. A successful Short sale just requires a few more steps in the process,and some additional patience, having some advantage actually at times. We as a profession are wise to adapt to the market now just as had been done in the past decades by our more senior agents, with every shift and turn in the economy comes knowledge and experience.
There are several things I can say about my wonderful colleagues: they are resilient, resourcefull, intelligent, and patient at times when needed. We are, for the most part, tireless and motivated to get the job done (and right the first time) and when we have been successful, the gratitude is in the accomplishment. Does this sound like a great way to earn a living, right? Actually only if you possess, cultivate, and nurture those and other qualities I previously mentioned.
We are constantly learning, and no transaction is the same. Why? As each home or property is unique, and people are different in style as well. Add to the mix, the constantly changing government and local regulations, and there you have it, no two days are ever the same.
I work for a great company which is very supportive and top notch. Anything I need to be successful is right there, and the training and updates are constant.
We are conveniently located near the Orange Park Mall and I 295, with Clay County/Duval County line nearby. We service the entire Jacksonville, Florida area including Duval County, Clay County, Saint John's County, Flagler County, Nassau County, Baker County, and Alachua County. And we can show any listing within the area of which listing brokerage coops.
We are active in the community and welcome new projects to benefit this community, where we work and live. We often have fundraisers and especially during the holiday season, collecting food items, participating in Toys For Tots, and other needed items. We have a drop box for "Cell Phones for Soldiers" currently. So, bring your unused old cell phone.
If you are interested in a rewarding career in Real Estate, please contact us for the details. The training and tools are structured to ensure your success. We would be happy to hear from you!

2/17/13 From Martha in Middleburg: I have known Ellen since we walked into her office in May of 2001. We bought our first house in Jacksonville then and we have considered her a friend ever since. We since sold that home and bought another a few years later. So we used Ellen to short sale our home this time and as always, she got the job done! Enough said!
12/14/12 From Mike & Carle: Thank you and we really appreciate all your hard work and what you have done to help us sell our home!

She showed me everything I wanted to see and found me comparable homes as well. GREAT agent. Best I have ever worked with. I would absolutely recommend Ellen. She made me feel as important as a million dollar customer.
El Ellen, Thank you for all of your help. This sale would have not closed had it not been for your hard work! I hope to do
business with you again soon.
From Sutton in Bear Run: Ellen was a true professional. Ellen was understanding of my concerns and needs. She was professional and analytical, understanding human and most importantly got the job done, sold my house.
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful work you have done for us as difficult as this process has been. We have been so very lucky to have such a fabulous realtor working for us. I hope that we can work together on the future sale of our other homes.
