We enthusiastically recommend Ellyn to anyone needing a top notch broker. She quickly identified what we were looking for in a new home and showed us many properties that fit our needs. Once we found the perfect home, Ellyn worked diligently to navigate us through a complicated purchase. Throughout the process we really appreciated her consistent communication, knowledge of the market and her expertise in handling our purchase.

— John and Jannette Vickers

We have purchased and sold a number of homes in the Vail Valley and elsewhere. In all of many our transactions, we have never had a broker who worked as hard and as effectively for us as did Ellyn. She truly works beyond the call for her clients and offers sound advice and innovative approaches. Her integrity is admirable. We would recommend her to anyone without any reservations.
