  • “My wife, my sister and I turned to Ellen to market and sell our ranch that had been in our family since 1850. Ellen spent time getting to understand our desires to market the property, and put together a comprehensive and professional marketing strategy to reach the target markets we had discussed. Before our ranch actually was listed, we had multiple showings and interested parties. Ellen steered us through the entire process from start to finish, in what turned out to be "seamless" experience. We have bought and sold a number of properties, and Ellen made this particular transaction a business case in how to get it done right!” Bob & Gail Brock
  • “My wife and I have bought and sold enough properties to recognize an excellent agent and Ellen Hart is one of (if not THE) best! We had a 'somewhat complicated' piece of property (Ellen would probably say VERY COMPLICATED!) and Ellen dealt with it (and us) very professionally, providing us with expert advice, roll-up-your-sleeves hard work, and sticktoitiveness and determination which combined to deliver a very pleasant outcome for us.
    For any future property needs anywhere between Houston and Austin, Ellen will be our go-to realtor!” Steven N
  • “Having worked with 20-25 agents through the years. This is the first time I have felt strongly enough to endorse any agent! This transaction needed someone with Ellen's professionalism and skill level to make it happen. Being an estate situation in the courts took Ellen's expertise to navigate through all the hiccup's and roadblocks with her persistence. She was able to get us to the closing table for this property.
    The best part of this whole transaction is now I have great new friend for life.
    Thank you Ellen!!!

  • “Ellen Hart is one of the best realtors I've ever worked with. She made an instant connection with me, probed my interests, delivered on every promise, and truly exceeded my expectations. When I needed help off the ledge, she was there. When I needed the cold hard facts, she was there, and even today she continues to be a trusted friend and supporter. I couldn't have asked for more.” Mark C
  • “Ellen was extremely helpful even before I signed a contract with her by finding us a surveyor, answering questions and giving us guidance. I told her from the beginning that I would not seek her advice and then go with another realtor. She overcame the numerous challenges discovered in our 73 year title history which proved to be very difficult at best. She was instrumental in clearing all of the clouds on the title allowing us to complete the sale and handled it very professionally. I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone needing a great professional realtor. She went above and beyond what is required of a realtor. I don't have enough space to describe here how professional, friendly, helpful and patient she was in this sale. The real estate market needs more professionals like her.” Thomas Gause
  • “I work with a lot of different professionals and Ellen is exceptionally easy and pleasant to work with. She did a great job assisting me with marketing and locating a buyer for a ranch property we owed in trust. She and her partner at the time brought to our attention an existing easement which crossed over the property and assisted us in resolving the issue. She understands the local ranch land market and I would highly recommend her. Steven L. Parkhill, CPA” Steve Parkhill
  • “I am a commercial broker in Houston and know that a deal can be made or lost from the first point of contact. Ellen was responsive and helpful from our first phone call and made it very easy for us to schedule a showing of the property she had listed. Ellen was energetic, friendly and had a great working knowledge of the property so we left the showing with a good feel for the property and few questions. Throughout the negotiations, Ellen was upbeat and positive and keep the information flowing as a true professional so we were able to strike a deal and close quickly. I hope to be able to work with Ellen again in the future. Russell Simmons” Russell Simmons
  • “We talked to several realtors over the course of our looking at property in Austin County and chose Ellen. From the very start she was involved in searching property given our parameters and had very strong local market knowledge. She asked the right questions, listened and zeroed in on property we were interested in and not what we weren't looking for. She guided us through the offer process and helped negotiate a very fair price. She stayed engaged throughout the experience, helping with a very challenging mortgage process and was there at closing to help us celebrate. We highly recommend Ellen!” Craig and Kris Willis
  • “Ellen was a true professional to work with when we were selling our family ranch. We interviewed several Real Estate Professionals during our search for someone to list our Ranch. Ellen stood out right away and came prepared with facts and a solid knowledge of the Market in our area. She proved to be the right choice for us. She followed through every step of the way and handled so many things that we felt were above and beyond as we were living out of state. I recommend her to anyone that wants a true Real Estate professional to market their property.” Richard
  • “As an escrow officer I love working with Ellen. She is smart and thorough. She responds quickly to any questions we might have. I have done several closings with Ellen and they all go smoothly because Ellen is prepared and does her homework! -Linda Stall Botts Title Company” Linda Stall
