Ratings & Reviews

Ellen was a dream to work with. After unsuccessfully working with other realtors Ellen came highly recommended by several people and for good reason. If buying or selling in the Livingston area she is an absolute expert and the person you want to work with. Ellen went above and beyond during the entire process. She was always available and helped us navigate a limited and tricky market. Ellen was an excellent negotiator during the offer and even after the inspection to get us a great purchase price. I don't think we would have ended up in the house we found had we worked with someone else. CALL HER!!!

Sold a home in 2014.

Amazing experience with our home purchase and sale - All thanks to Ellen! Her expertise in real estate is second to none! She went far and beyond to negotiate our new home and sell our old home in record time. She is a very sought after realtor, but when you're working with her you really feel like you're the priority. Highly recommend her to all sellers and buyers - She's the Best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Livingston, NJ.

We recently purchased a home with Ellen as our realtor. We did not know the ins and outs of the area and she was a huge help. Ellen has a ton of local knowledge and is always willing to give up time to show a house, talk on the phone or answer a question. She is honest and will always give you her justified and thought-out opinion. It is hard to trust a realtor, but we absolutely trusted her throughout the process and we are very happy we did. We plan on using her again next time.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $950K in Livingston, NJ.

I could not recommend Ellen highly enough. At first I was a little skeptical because Ellen is a friend of my wife and I didn't know Her on a professional level. After our first meeting those concerns were erased. I can honestly say that I can not imagine an outcome between the sale of our old home and finding a new one that could have worked out better. If you don't use Ellen, you are crazy. That simple.

Bought a home in 2014 in Northfield, Livingston, NJ 07039.

Amazing Experience with Ellen Gonik! We decided to move from Hoboken to Livingston, so we didn't know anything about Livingston or its surroundings. She was beyond knowledgeable about the areas on all levels, starting with homes, streets to restaurants. She listened very well to what we were looking for and delivered sooner then we expected. She found the perfect house for the perfect price. She did a terrific job in negotiating and literally I felt that there is someone holding my hand thru this process and is looking out for our benefit. She is always available, never had a problem reaching her. And the people she works with (lawyers, mortgage brokers, contractors) are also amazing, we have used all the people she suggested and we are very pleased with all of their work. Ellen continued to help us from identifying the house to beyond closing.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Livingston, NJ.

Ellen is an outstanding and extraordinary agent, with expert knowledge of the Livingston (and vicinity) market. She's extremely patient during the search phase and expert negotiator and advisor during the buying phase. We aren't an easy customer, our search spanned for more than an year. Ellen made every effort to get us a house of our choice and helped us even after the purchase, in every way possible.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.675M in Livingston, NJ.

Ellen did not only sell our house, she also help us find a rental and is helping us find a new house in a different town. We could not be more happy with how everything is handled by her. Great advise, local knowledge, recommended contractors, moving help and school information at her fingertips.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Livingston, NJ.

In the four years we looked at homes in various neighborhoods, we never stuck with one realtor until we met Ellen. It was love at first showing. She is a talented salesperson and negotiator, whose honesty and humor win you over immediately and she knows everything about the houses she shows. She also knows the area and never failed to reply to my random questions with helpful information (where can my kid take chess lessons?), even after she closed the sale. I recommend her often and would use her again when we are ready to sell.

Bought a home in 2010.

Ellen is a top notch real estate agent. She knows the Livingston/Short Hills and surrounding area inside and out. If you want an honest, knowledgeable, and dedicated real estate agent that has your best interest in mind, Ellen is who you need. Ellen helped me buy my first house in an area with great schools. She listened to what I wanted and found me the best house within our price range. I am thankful to have had worked with her and for having her on my team during the stressful process of buying a home. She is a class act, listens to the needs of her clients, is easy to work with, is not pushy and doesn't waste your time. Once you work with her, she is with you every step of the way. So lucky to have found her!!!

Sold a home in 2014 in Northfield, Livingston, NJ 07039.

Ellen is a total pro. She worked with us from the start all the way through our sale and purchase, responding to numerous questions, emails and phone calls. Perhaps more importantly, when our purchase negotiation almost came to a stop, Ellen demonstrated terrific leadership and got the seller back in track. I would recommend Ellen without any hesitation as she's just terrific to work with!
