More about Ellen Lancaster

Professional Philosophy

Your house is one of your most important financial investments, but more importantly where you live everyday. Buying or selling your house is a process that should be positive and exciting. I will help you find a house just right for you at the best possible price, or sell your house at the highest possible price. My value to you is in negotiating the best price for you and in making sure you never leave any money on the table. My goal is to do such a good job that you will not want to buy or sell another house without me. I want to be in your real estate life forever!

Personal Background

Exciting, successful consultative sales and marketing in the corporate world and real estate have honed my sales and negotiation skills. Varied experience of living in multiple areas of the USA and abroad, along with home buying, selling in multiple offers, and custom building and remodeling enrich my background further to serve my clients. Work with my church family, local elementary school, Duke Alumni and Habitat For Humanity keep me humble and appreciative of the opportunity to serve others.
