Testimonials for Ellie Shorb
We had had our home on the market a couple of times with other agents and not had any luck - using Ellie Shorb this time around was the best decision we every made! Ellie found great buyers for our $2.2M home, all within the first week or so of being on the market. Ellie grew up in the area and has a vast network of colleagues, friends, and professional contacts which is key. Ellie also has a great sense of style and so was able to help us with 'staging' our home. We have now also bought a small condo ($190k and less than 500 sq ft!) and Ellie was extremely helpful in sorting out all aspects of the negotiations and transaction details - she even helped the property owner clarify the transaction from his side and helped speed things up for him. Ellie is an absolute pleasure to work with; she's beyond helpful and hits just the right balance between friendly and professional. We appreciated the fact that Ellie was able to conduct negotiations, always keeping our best interests at the forefront. If you're looking to make a house sale or purchase (or both!) as painless as possible, while using an agent who will help you realize the full sale potential of your home, Ellie Shorb is the agent we would recommend. We will use Ellie to buy a house next year, when we return from Philly!
Ellie went the extra mile on delivering TOPA documents and working with our tenants to show the condo and make the deal happen within a remarkable time frame. She used technology to have us sign the documents remotely and in general made this a hassle free experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs to sell a property- either a house or a condo.

Our house had been on the market for a long time, with very little interest. We switched agents and asked Ellie Shorb to help. She was creative, helpful, and pro-active. Ellie recommended an appropriate selling price, made staging suggestions, organized a delightful open house 'cocktail hour', and arranged for our house to be featured in an article in the Baltimore Sun. She supervised viewings, as we live a long distance away. The house sold quickly. We highly recommend Ellie Shorb.
I highly recommend Ellie. She made time for me and rearranged her schedule on very short notice when I contacted her to help me look at homes in Bethesda. We had a difficult closing process, including our being out of the country during an especially critical time, and Ellie was extremely helpful. She is very knowledgeable about the area and she continues to provide us with recommendations for local services long after the purchase of our home was complete. Ellie is always energetic and has a wonderful, positive attitude.
Ellie did more to sell our house than any other Real Estate agent we had signed with. She told us she would have it sold by Labor Day and she did. She always answered any questions promptly and helped out in any way she could. I definitely recommend Ellie to sell your home.
Ellie sold our home in Kenwood. She is an incredibly helpful agent. From the moment I first started talking with her, she had not only good suggestions but hands on help. She had excellent suggestions for staging. The day that the movers came to move stuff into storage, Ellie was there the first thing with Starbucks and a smile and spent the whole day packing and assisting with the movers (which she found). She answered all my questions and my calls promptly with endless patience and expertise. She's incredibly energetic, enthusiastic and always optimistic. I recommend Ellie highly!
Ellie Shorb was the most helpful and dedicated agent we have ever dealt with. We were out of town at the time, so Ellie made all the necessary arrangements that needed to be made. She staged our Gibson Island house beautifully and arranged for the movers and what ever was needed in orderly and professional manner. We highly recommend Ellie Shorb and we trust her completely.
Dear Ellie, Thank you for a superb job, expertly executed, and for keeping a cool head when I needed it most. Gratefully Yours, Louise Cromwell"
My wife and I were delighted with Ellie's handling of the recent sale of our home on Gibson Island, Maryland. Ellie's knowledge and experise in pricing the properrty, her attention to detail, and her ability to work with the buyer's agent made the process smooth and successful. We highly recommend her, and we would employ her again should we be in the market for either the purchase or sale of a home. Len Mitchard
