About Ellen

Providing client success in buying and selling...


I know first-hand what a very special community this is and all it has to offer. I love sharing my excitement and knowledge with buyers moving to the area.  

My Bio:

I became a broker in 2015 after working for the IBM Corporation for 32 years. After living all over the U.S., I moved to Port Townsend in 2010 because it offered exactly what I was seeking – a small town with a big heart, spectacular views at every turn, interesting and engaged people, as well as endless outdoor activities. Selling real estate was a natural next step, combining my business acumen with my passion for bringing people together with the right property.

As someone who has made numerous corporate and voluntary moves throughout my life, I can empathize with clients no matter what motivation is behind your move. I know that even if a move represents your lifelong dream, it's still stressful. My mission is to make your entire transition, not just the real estate transaction, a positive experience. I am keenly aware that people's lives, livelihood, families, friendships, and finances are interwoven into the decision to buy or sell a home. I am committed to being your trusted advisor, fierce advocate, and collaborative partner throughout the journey.

My interests include yoga, pickleball, mah-jongg, cooking, and spending time with friends. I'm passionate about animal rights causes, and donate to local animal welfare/rescue organizations and provide pet food to local food banks. It is my belief that if you get up in the morning working to make the world a better place, you become a better person and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

My Mission:

My mission is to be your trusted advisor, advocating on your behalf at every step of the transaction. I will always have your best interests at heart.

My commitment to you:

  • No pressure. Ever.
  • Patience, persistence, and perseverance.
  • Clear, honest, and timely communication
  • Ethical, confidential, and professional representation.
  • Respect and attention to your individual needs.

My Awards: 

  • John L. Scott President's Elite Award 2018-2022
  • John L. Scott President's Gold Award 2016-2017
  • John L. Scott Emerald Award 2015
