Bought a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $175K in Midlothian, VA.
I would like to take a moment to describe our transactions with the Ellen Clark Team. Our first transaction was just over twelve years ago. We were relocating here from out town. We called Ellen and her team to help us. We had two days to find a house and 6 weeks to finalize the “move”. Her market knowledge was astonishing, we were able to see over 15 houses and one was the “perfect” house for us. Ellen walked us through the entire process with “kit gloves”. Ellen’s local contacts and referrals provided us with a complete team of professionals (flooring person, painter, plumber, landscape, mortgage person, lawyer, etc.) to handle everything possibly needed for a “move”. Some of the relationships/people from twelve years ago have become my close friends today.
After seven years and three children we decided to move again . . . this time we were staying in the area. Ellen and her team took very good care of both sides of that move, not an easy task in a declining Real Estate market. Over the past twelve years I have recommended Ellen to several friends and relatives each time Ellen has come through with flying colors. I firmly recommend Ellen and her Team to help anybody with a Real Estate transaction. The truth is I am not sure where I would be today if it were not for Ellen Clark and her Team. Simply put a true professional from start to finish.

Ellen provided a great service to me in helping sell my home. She provided routine market updates to help me assess pricing, arranged for a stager to make the interior more welcoming and provided relevant feedback throughout. She is very upbeat and very responsive, and I will gladly do business with her again!

About 16 years ago Ellen helped me find my first house. When I was ready to sell it about 7 years later I was able to sell it the first day on the market at a $50,000 profit. I couldn't have done it without her.
When I built my next house she was always available and had ready answers to my frequent questions about the building process. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone in the Richmond metro area who needs a realtor.
Ellen has been in the business for so long and seems to know everyone. We interviewed two other realtors, but went with Ellen since she appeared to be on top of her game. We successfully sold two houses with Ellen and did not have any issues.

Ellen and her team are fantastic partners for both buying and selling real estate. During one of the most difficult economic environments I had to sell my home. The Ellen Clark team marketed my home very effectively with an outstanding video presentation. The home sold in less than two weeks!
When I was ready to buy a new home I turned again to Ellen and her team and they did a great job in screening potential homes and finding a home and negotiating a contract for a home I am very happy with.
Because of their solid expertise in the marker and great service I have referred Ellen to others who have always been pleased with her work.

Best realtor ever!!! Ellen and her team were knowledgeable, timely, responsive, and attentive to our needs. She came to the home we were selling the same day we called. She gave us a ton of tips on how to make it show and then she sold it in less than 30 days for a ton more than we expected. Ellen knows her stuff. She knew the area and helped us negotiate a fantastic deal on the house we wanted. She was there every step of the way. She gave us awesome contacts from an inspector to the mortgage broker and then to the closing attorney and made us feel well represented through the entire process. I would never even consider using someone else!!!

Ellen sold my house for me in less than a month when the market was very slow. She was very helpful in dealing with the other person's request who were buying my house. She was very good at helping me stage my house for resale
.I didn't have to do anything. She took care of everything.
I would use her services again and always recommend her to others.

Ellen Clark sold a house I was handling as part of my Uncle's estate. It was a stressful time for me and she was very understanding, patient and helpful. The house needed many repairs. Ellen has so many loyal contacts in the area that I didn't have to go searching for the expert help I needed. The house sold in the first few days on the market, for more than the asking price. I really felt secure with Ellen handling this sale and I will use her again for my personal real estate needs. If you want a true expert, choose Ellen and her team!

It was a pleasure working with Ellen as our Agent as we were purchasing our home. She was very knowledgeable and patient as she walked us through the process and ensured we got the best deal possible. I will definitely use her again as our agent and would recommend her to our friends and family.
