Ratings & Reviews

Listened carefully what we wanted and price range we needed to stay in. Checked into previous projects to see if the owner got permits before we closed on the prospective home so we would not be responsible for and made sure money was held in escrow. Saved us money that would of came out of our pocket to complete the permits with the city of Surprise along with the extra expence's to correct projects that were not done to code. Ellen has followed up with any of our questions and concerns to make our new home a joy to have!

If you are seeking an extremely knowledgeable, professional and realistic Agent -- Ellen is the Agent to have! Our entire experience was NOT about what made her the most money but what was BEST for us and our family. Ellen took the time to learn about us and put together a strategy to help us find the right property. Not something that was over sized or over budget. We had a VERY SMOOTH purchase process. Every aspect of our purchase was understood and coordinated by Ellen. She has a FANTASTIC set up and took great care of us. We were informed of each step along the way and involved in our purchase. Ellen is no-nonsense when it comes to property purchases, we truly felt that she was looking out for our best interests. I simply cannot express how wonderful our home buying experience was and it is all due to Ellen. Knowledgeable, Intelligent, Professional, Honest and just a truly quality person. We won't work with anyone else going forward.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Surprise, AZ.

When we were looking at homes in Arizona and not sure exactly where we wanted to be Ellen was patient with us as we researched and looked in other locations before deciding on Surprise. She showed us many homes and eventually we found the one that was right for us. Ellen walked us through the process of home inspections,and everything we needed to do before closing on our new home. We went back to Illinois before taking possession of the house so Ellen helped us with what we needed to do long distance too! We moved in a couple of months later and now we call Ellen a friend in addition to the best realtor in town! Thanks Ellen!

Ms. Baker is an experienced and professional Agent. She supports her clients in all stages of their process. She is always responsive to requests and questions. We have used her skills in both renting and buying homes. We have also recommended her to family and friends because of her integrity in the business. We are blessed to have her on our side.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Surprise, AZ.

I haven't checked but, I believe if you look up knowledgeable or professional in the dictionary there will be a picture of Ellen as examples of both words.

After days of working with agents to locate the "perfect" property and getting more frustrated with each property, Ellen's name was suggested. I called her one afternoon and after she asked what we were looking for she said "meet me at the office at 9 the following morning." We sorted through the property she had selected for us to see and eliminated ones we had already viewed and ones we chose not to see. She took us to each property remaining, knew about each and told us the background. In one, she even noted the floor was tilted ever so slightly (poor construction). Very impressive.

She found us exactly what we were looking for, perfect home, perfect street, perfect community (Surprise, AZ) suggested the offer dollar amount and moved ahead when the offer was excepted. What could be better?

If you want a professional who works for you and your interests, choose Ellen.

Bought a home in 2013 in Surprise, AZ 85388.

Ellen, is an amazing agent. We are from Canada and wanted to buy a second home. Ellen did everything for us without us having to be present in Arizona, her service and knowledge was amazing, she made us feel at ease through the whole process We are so glad we found her and hope to buy more homes in the future with her. I highly recommend Ellen to anyone who is looking to buy a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Surprise, AZ.

Ellen was our realtor when my husband and I purchased our home in Sun City Grand. She really listened to us and responded to our interests in a home. She always gave very kind and helpful information. She never pushed us to buy a more expensive home but made every effort to find just what we needed in our price range. We really enjoy our home now thanks to her guidance.

Ellen went so far as to provide local information about Surprise. She gave us lists of service providers that we had requested of her. We were new to the community, so her helpfulness saved us a lot of trial and error learning as well as wasted time.

My husband and I would recommend Ellen to anyone who is looking for an honest, responsive, and pleasant realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Surprise, AZ.

Within 15 minutes of calling Ellen she had put together 10 houses for us to tour. With her drive and work ethic we were able to find a home, close on this home and move in within 2 weeks. I would recommend anyone looking for a home in the surprise area to call Ellen.
