Client Reviews

Ellie was patient with us during the time we were looking for homes and during the purchase of our house. She listened to us and did not try to over sell us or show us items out of our budget.

She was detail oriented and an amazing partner. There were many hurdles during this process and Ellie was positive, honest and reassuring.
I would recommend her to others and I will 100% use her again.less

Ellie was with us every step of the way in our long pursuit of finding the perfect house in Eastchester.

She helped us through the difficult bidding process and the anxiety filled period before the closing.

She is very friendly and knowledgeable about the real estate market. We recommend her as an agent.

Ellie is an excellent, hard-working and diligent real estate broker.

 

She priced our house appropriately, marketed it with skill (including persuading us to
stage it), and handled the bidding process professionally.  The bottom line is that we sold our house for 50K over asking.

 

She also represented us on the purchase of our new home which we got for a very fair price, again in a bidding
situation.

 

Ellie was very realistic with us on the market on both the buying and
selling side and helped us make a very good down-sizing move.

Thank you so much for all your help with the purchase of our new home andthe sale of our old home this past Spring.

Your experience and savvy added value every step of the way.  When we were looking for homes, you didn't just rely on an e-mailed list of homes, but instead actively brought to our attention homes that met our specifications and that you felt were good value.

When we put our own home on the market, your recommendations regarding timing, list price and how to present our home were spot on.  You generated excitement about our home at a time when buyers were still very cautious.   As you know, we had dozens of showings the first weekend the house was on the market and an accepted offer at above asking price within a week. 

As contracts were negotiated for the purchase and sale, you were there with excellent strategic suggestions when we hit those inevitable snags. 

You did all of this with your usual warmth, calmness, good humor and toughness -- a perfect combination for guiding us through the hectic process of buying and selling a home!

Again, many many thanks!

Angela and Rob

I highly recommend Ellie if you're looking to buy or sell a home/property in Westchester, NY!!! 

 

 

She is an all around fantastic, experienced & resourceful Real Estate Agent that is extremely good at matching and presenting opportunities to her buyer/seller clients. 

 

She's very cognizant of people's time and its importance; optimizing the time & effort of each and every step of the whole process, while constantly ensuring the needs of her clients are effectively addressed. 

 

Ellie successfully helped my wife and me with finding two multi-family houses in Mamaroneck, NY (bought in 1998 & 2011); consistently demonstrating that she's willing and able to go above and beyond her role to help ensure the purchase/sale is done as smoothly as possible to minimize/eliminate any negative impact on her clients. 

 

By the way, she's very personable and always provides, very tactfully, the right amount of consultation, highlighting the pros & cons. 

To put it simply, Ellie’s great!!!

When it was time to sell our home of 25 years, in the most difficult residential real estate market in a generation, we were lucky to have found Ellie. First, she is one of the most positive people we know. But she is also able to balance optimism with realism.

The package of information, including comparables on the market, recent sales, etc. was very thorough and highly professional. She guided us gently to an asking price that both we and she could believe in. She sponsored many week-end and mid-week open houses with an energy, creativity and sense of optimism that was infectious. She was always encouraging, so we were encouraged, even during the worst weeks of the financial crisis (fall of 2008).

Once we found the buyer, Ellie really went into high gear on the negotiations. She stayed with the process every step of the way, even writing a personal check to cover the cost of a final (and unexpected) electrical inspection a week prior to the closing, while we were out of town at our son's graduation.

I cannot say enough about what a highly professional, personal and thorough job Ellie did, with a terrific result at the end. She has our highest recommendation."

 "My wife and I worked with Ellie when we were looking to settle in Larchmont, after many years in Manhattan. Ellie listened closely to our requirements (location, price, house style, etc.) and quickly zeroed in on a short list of properties that matched our needs. Within weeks, we had a signed contract on the house that we've been happily living in for nearly two years.

 

 

Throughout the process, Ellie was a pleasure to work with, and deftly helped us navigate things right through to our closing.”

"Ellie has done a great job for me the three times I have worked for her. She didn't oversell me on my first house, helped me get a great price, 5 years later when I sold it, and was able to quickly understand what I wanted for my next house--which I got at a good price and am very happy with, regardless of the real estate crisis. Ellie is very very good--you should use her!!"

"Ellie assisted us in selling our house in 2007 and was instrumental in getting a fully-priced offer quickly. The key to success was the right pricing and an active marketing campaign that began immediately upon listing. She was thorough and prompt with all follow-up. We were very pleased, especially in view of the fact that the market went into a stall only six months later."

She always wisely assesssed a situation, quickly and efficiently followed through and did it all with remarkable graciousness. "It is my job," Ellie would respond when I commented on her good work.

I have persuaded two friends to call on Ellie when they put their houses on the market and I will recommend her again."

"On Sunday, October 13, we were lucky to have Ellie Ohebshalom show us a great number of homes in Larchmont & Mamaroneck.


Our time frame in New York was very limited and the trip was arranged hurriedly, but Ellie pulled together variety of homes for us to see."

She is a terrific person and a very capable sales representative. We really enjoyed our time with her!
