Meet Ellie

With a proven track record of successful transactions and happy clients, Ellie prides herself on her tenacious, organized and results-driven work ethic. She feels the ultimate sense of satisfaction being able to guide her clients through some of the most important financial decisions of their lives, building equity and wealth.

Ellie is well versed in the nuances of SLO County real estate, from urban to rural, coastal to inland, residential to agriculture. She worked under one of SLO County's most successful Real Estate Brokers for 4 years before venturing off on her own. She was bit by the real estate bug back in 2010 when she bought her first property, the ugliest duplex in her favorite neighborhood. Since then, Ellie's been buying and managing properties for more than a decade, with expertise in both owner-occupied and investments, and long term and short term rentals. Before her real estate career, Ellie worked in marketing and public relations for nearly 20 years, and in college studied Journalism, Communications and Psychology, which she taps into constantly, from skillfully marketing her Sellers' listing to negotiating contracts and navigating the intricacies of great communication to get her clients the best deal.

Deeply involved in the local community, Ellie enjoys volunteering her time and talents with local organizations. She serves on the Board of Directors for SLO Repertory Theatre, volunteers with the local NPR-affiliate KCBX and is the CFO for her Homeowners' Association. She is a member of the San Luis Obispo Association of Realtors®, the CA Assoc. of Realtors®, and the National Assoc. of Realtors®.

A Cal Poly '02 alum, she couldn't resist when the opportunity arose to return to the SLO life in 2013. She lives in San Luis Obispo with her husband, who teaches Architecture at Cal Poly, and their child. They love calling the Central Coast home and enjoy hiking, biking and wine tasting in their free time. She looks forward to working with you on achieving your real estate goals.
