"Ellen was extremely professional, helpful and easy to work with. As new homebuyers, it was important to have an experienced real estate associate represent us. Ellen's calm demeanor was reassuring during the stressful negotiation process, her organizational skills proved extremely useful with all of the various pieces of information required, and raising two children in Darien, her knowledge of the community is endless. Ellen is now a friend of mine in the community and I would absolutely refer her to a friend interested in the town of Darien!"
