Ellen Hill
Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty
"Ms. Hill is professional, highly knowledgeable, responsive, and a joy to work with. We are new to Atlanta and she was extremely helpful and patient as we navigated unfamiliar real estate laws and urban properties. She negotiated a price and contract we were very satisfied with. We have worked with many REALTORS® over the years and she is one of the finest. Our experience was positive in every way and I highly recommend!"

- Joan Hannan
"Ellen made our long distance relocation a breeze. We were only in town to view houses for two days. The morning of the first day, we struck out big time. She recommended we break for lunch and she'd pull more listings based upon what she learned about or less and dislikes that morning. The afternoon session of house- hunting was so "on point!" We loved everything we saw! We saw a total of 17 homes, which seemed so easy because Ellen did all of the driving. She certainly knows the area well. She was in constant contact with us once we made an offer. Once we were under contract, she kept us up to date with every little step. Or closing was quick and convenient. Having been in our home now for about three weeks, we definitely feel we chose the right home for us. Having the right REALTOR® made the process that much better!"

- Mableton, GA
"Ellen helped us find exactly what we were looking for in a home! Not only was she an absolute pleasure to work with, but she was totally on the ball from the beginning of the home-buying process until the end! Ellen is a wonderful communicator, has great style and is willing to do what it takes to help her clients achieve their goals. We will use Ellen again the next time we buy or sell a home! She is a true professional!"

- Ashley in Roswell, GA
"My family moved from Ohio to Georgia. Needless to say we didn't know anyone in the GA real estate industry. We discussed our search with several local REALTOR®s in the area and it was clear from the start that Ellen would give us the attention and expertise we were looking for. Ellen managed every step of the process in a professional and knowledgeable manner and ultimately found us our dream home! Anyone looking to purchase a home in Atlanta would be lucky to have Ellen working on their behalf!"

- Chris in Acworth, GA
"Ellen is an incredible agent! She was on top of every detail in listing, selling and purchasing our new home! No detail was overlooked! In addition to her real estate knowledge, she has a vast amount of references for any work needing to be done regarding the sale, financing and repair of your home. Do not let her awesome "southern charm" fool you, she can negotiate like no other! I would highly recommend Ellen!!"

- Linda in Marietta
"Ellen was a great help in the whole process of selling my house. She was honest, straightforward in all dealings. She had great ideas in how to present my house in the best way. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her."

- Sandy in Marietta
"Being new to the state, I knew very little about the real estate market and the process of buying a home here. Ellen spent quite a bit of time with me and covered a lot of distance in helping me search for the right home. She was very diligent in her follow up skills. Even after we spent a whole day looking for houses, she would answer any open questions, send documents for review and signature, etc. to my email later that evening. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a home. Based on my experience, it shows why she is one of the top agents for her company and in this area."

- Steve in Marietta
"Ellen helped me with the purchase of a one bedroom condo that was a short sale back in May 2016. I couldn't have been happier with my experience throughout that long process. When the bank finally did accept my purchase offer, they gave us only three weeks to complete the closing. We were ready to close with days to spare thanks to Ellen and her recommended lender. In November 2016, my partner's mother passed and he became the guardian of her minor special needs son. They moved in with me, and I called Ellen to see what the options were to buy a bigger place for my newly expanded family. Ellen listed the condo at a price $24,000 more than what I paid for it just six months before and it sold within a week. Ellen also helped me purchase a bigger condo in the same school district that had more than enough room to meet the needs of my new family...and we got a really great deal. Ellen helped me and my family out more than I can find words to say right when we needed help the most. I couldn't have done it without her. She has my full recommendation. She'll be my agent for the rest of my life!"

- Chuck in Atlanta
"When we listed our home with Ellen, we stressed our desire to sell at the highest price and in the quickest time. She delivered on both requests! We were impressed with her efforts to promote the unique features of our home to other agents, actively seeking out the right buyers. Ellen kept in frequent communication so there were no surprises and resulted in the smoothest real estate transaction we have ever experienced. We enthusiastically recommend Ellen as a trusted partner!"

- David & Kathleen in Smyrna
"Ellen just recently helped us to sell a home and buy a new one. The experience was the smoothest that we have ever had in selling or purchasing a home. Ellen marketed our home and secured a contract for top price in the neighborhood in only five weeks. We wanted to down-size to one specific subdivision and she made all that work perfectly. Ellen is very detail oriented, professional and personable. She responded to messages and questions and kept us informed every step of the way. Our son and daughter-in-law were also extremely pleased using Ellen in the purchase of their first home last September. I would recommend that buyers of any age seek out Ellen Hill as their REALTOR®."

- Rosalind in Kennesaw, GA
"Ellen is wonderful lady that is top notch at her craft. Not only was she awesome during my search of finding the right home but she really shined in helping me from contract to close. I had a lot of trouble with my lender dragging their feet and feeding me fabrications as to why they were taking so long. Ellen constantly swooped in like a real estate hammer of justice and kept my lender in line ensuring that I was able to close on time. She's honestly a superhero in her own right and if I were her I'd wear a cape. I highly respect people who work hard for the clients and treat them like people vs treating them like a dollar amount...Ellen will treat you great and do you right. I will recommend Ellen to any friends or family buying or selling in the future. If I ever decide to buy or sell in the future she's my go-to and should be yours too."

- Adam in Marietta
"Our experience with Ellen was great! She is personal yet very professional. As first-time homebuyers, we had no idea how the process worked and Ellen was patient and had no problem going above and beyond to make sure we understood everything. Ellen is great, and I would highly recommend her."

- Ashli in Dallas, GA
"Hiring Ellen Hill to sell our home was the best decision we made! We were relocating to another state and wanted to sell our home quickly. Ellen not only responded to our initial email immediately, but she remained attentive, professional, and completely invested in our move the entire time. In addition, she came prepared with the expertise and skill set needed to sell our historic home. Ellen was there every step of the way, sold our house in record time, and made it possible for us to buy our dream historic home in our new city!"

- Heather in Marietta
"We purchased our first home recently with Ellen as our REALTOR® and let me just say she was not only honest, knowledgeable, patient, and respectful; she made sure to take the time so that we were educated on the process the entire way through! My husband and I had lived in nine other homes being military and stationed all over the globe, that we were picky and wanted something that each of our former homes had to offer (we should have just built something, but were too impatient to do so). It took months (solely on our part) of ups and downs for us to find that forever home, and Ellen stuck by us the entire way. She made sure that we had the tools we needed to be able to weed through the houses on the market to see if it would fit our taste or not. She took the time to show us homes within our busy schedule, and she even entertained our kids with jokes and questions about school so we could look without distractions. She is passionate about what she does in the fact that it's not just a sale for her, it’s her part in a homeowner finding something they will be happy with for whatever length of time they need it for; for us it was our forever home. The sale of our home was peculiar in that it wasn't a traditional close, but Ellen made sure to call us regularly with updates, stand beside us when things got emotional, and made sure we knew everything and that we were in control the entire way! If you are looking for a REALTOR® who not only has experience and knowledge market, but you also want someone who is passionate, loves what they do, and sticks their clients first do not hesitate to call her! You will not be disappointed."

- Nicole in Acworth
"I have invested in real estate for 36 years (since 1980), dealing with many agents over that time. Ellen continues to impress me with her dedication and expertise. In the recent sale of a property I had held for some 13 years, she was helpful in timing the listing to capture a hot market to generate a significant profit over what I had anticipated. Then she spent time with the appraiser to justify the top of the neighborhood price she has gotten. And she was quick to respond to communications, even on weekends. She makes you feel like you are her priority, even though I know she has several other clients at the same time"

- Boddiford in Marietta
"Ellen recently helped us buy a home and sell our home. She was excellent in terms of negotiating a fair price in both situations (never easy) and offering great advice and counsel during the process for both buying and selling. As you know, there are "bumps in the road" in any real estate deal and it is how you deal with them to your satisfaction that is key to any deal. She was very responsive to emails and phone calls 7 days per week. The key differentiator with Ellen is her knowledge and use of social media to drive traffic to your listing an ultimately a buyer. She is excellent at using the internet to drive traffic and to present the home in ways that show off the strengths and key points you want any potential buyer to see. I highly recommend Ellen for your buy/sell of homes."

- Dave in Roswell
"I don't know how we would have found a property without Ellen. She was extremely professional throughout the entire process. Constantly kept in contact with property listings and always kept us up-to-date on any changes. We had multiple snags in the search, but the one thing we could always rely on was Ellen."

- Drew in Marietta, GA
"Ellen was a fantastic agent for my wife and me. She was so helpful with the process, and was always willing to get us into a house and MAKE IT HAPPEN with whatever we wanted to look at. She was never pushy, and was always right there when we needed her. If I could give her six stars, I would."

- Josh in Dallas
"Working with Ellen was an absolute delight. She was knowledgeable about the community, and had sold a couple of homes prior to listing mine. I was impressed with her professional demeanor, plus she guided me every step of the way. The photography was a plus and helped to sell the home quickly. Within 48 hours I had eight offers! I would definitely recommend Ellen to anyone considering listing their home."

- Peggy in Atlanta
"We were extremely pleased with Ellen's professionalism and knowledge! From listing our property to closing on the sell, Ellen provided EXCELLENT client services that rang all of our doorbells! She is fun, enthusiastic and just plain good!"

- Rocky in Acworth
"Ellen was fabulous to work with. She helped my fiancée and me buy our first house. We completely clueless about the entire home buying process but Ellen made it so easy. She told us exactly what to expect and prepare for each step of the way, which made the whole process very smooth. She definitely had our best interests at heart. Ellen was very quick to respond to text messages, emails, and phone calls. I cannot recommend Ellen enough; she is professional, friendly, personable, reliable and competitive. We will definitely be recommending her to our friends and family!"

- Maddie in Marietta
"I can't say enough good things about Ellen! She was a true advocate and encouraged and advised us thru the whole daunting process of finding our new home. A new home in a new state even! What a blessing it was to find such a great realtor! You will not be disappointed!"

- Jeff in Woodstock, GA
"Working with Ellen Hill was such a positive experience in every aspect of the buying, selling and moving process. She was always accessible, knowledgeable and went above and beyond expectations and duties. Our home was sold within three weeks of going on the market and for the highest price of any home previously sold in the subdivision. We would highly recommend Ellen for the above reasons and many more."

- Karen in Roswell
"I won't waste your time by rehashing the very accurate details others have shared. I have used 10 or so agents over the years from all around the Southeast. Ellen is by far the best I've ever worked with. I'll sum up my experience with Ellen with this; Ellen is not pushy in the least but gives effective feedback throughout the process, from pre-qualification to showings to close. If you want a friendly, effective, supportive expert that is looking out for your best interest, look no further than Ellen Hill."

- Bobby in Marietta
"With three young children and a traveling husband I was very nervous about selling our first home and trying to find something new. Ellen Hill made the whole process of moving so much easier for us! She is incredibly responsive, stayed ahead of anything unexpected that we encountered and was truly our best advocate. Ellen was able to get a contract on our home after only three days on the market (during a holiday weekend at that) and found us a new home during our second trip to look. I have had many family members utilize Ellen's help before and they all have nothing but great things to say. We were very pleased and have already recommended her to others."

- Megan in Powder Springs
"Ellen was very understanding and professional. She helped me through the process with great advice. She is pleasant, creative and very intelligent. I highly recommend her to anyone either selling or buying a house."

- Jeanette in Marietta, GA
"Ellen was quick to respond to my requests. She listened well, heard my needs, catered to my business schedule, and was delightful and professional to be with. I look forward to any time we meet whether in casual or formal settings. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs."

- Diane in Marietta, GA
"Ellen is a wonderful person to work with. She has shown us multiple homes and been patient with us through the whole process. Ellen is prompt and makes home buying an enjoyable experience for her clients. Her interior design background is evident and she has a clever way of knowing exactly what would work for us!"

- Dorsie in Marietta, GA
"Ellen was amazing to work with to sell my house! She is positive, informative, supportive, and could offer constructive criticism. Selling my house couldn't have been a more enjoyable process!"

- Morgan in Marietta, GA
"We would recommend Ellen Hill in a heartbeat! She has an amazing knowledge of the area and neighborhoods/amenities, and she was able to seamlessly walk us through the buying and selling process. Ellen always advocated on our behalf, and she helped to guide us towards making the right decisions for our family."

- Amy in Acworth
"Ellen is a very knowledgeable, professional, and delightful realtor to work with. She always responded to my correspondence in a timely manner. When we needed her to "go up to bat" for us, she was ready and willing. She will do all she can for her clients. I have never had such a great experience working with someone."

- Melissa in Marietta
"Ellen is top notch when it comes to helping young professionals look for their first home. She has gone above and beyond in my search for the perfect home. I highly recommend Ellen, not only is she enthusiastic but she is also considerate of others needs and wants. With Ellen, you can expect the call back and fast replies to emails. Thanks, Ellen!"

- Taylor in Sandy Springs, GA
"Ellen was an Angel sent from above. She reduced all stress that we occur from other REALTOR®s. Her extensive knowledge in real estate with a southern charm sold our house just a few short weeks. I hope she has her Florida license so I can use her for my next purchase in Florida. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Ellen for your REALTOR®. Ellen, I can't thank you enough for the GREAT work you have done."

- Patrick in Dallas, GA
"We had the privilege to work with Ellen twice: once when we were buying our home and later when we sold it. She is not only professional, she is knowledgeable about the procedures and knows the area well too. We needed help finding lawn care, an exterminator, etc. and she helped us with everything. Her attention to detail gave us an edge when we were buying and selling a home. We highly recommend her!"

- Deanna in Marietta, GA
"I cannot say enough good things about Ellen! She was incredible through our home buying process. As first-time homebuyers, there was so much we did not know and Ellen took the time to explain and talk out every detail. She was professional, honest and worked so hard for us. She updated us constantly and was always one step ahead of where we needed to be in the process. Ellen genuinely cared about helping us find the perfect home and helped us negotiate for a great close. You will not find a better agent than her; Ellen is the best of the best!"

- Sara in Acworth
"Overall an AMAZING experience for being my first time buying a home. I was told that home buying was going to be stressful and exhausting, but Ellen took the time to make it very painless. She was there thru every step of the process. If you're looking for a knowledge and Responsible person for your home-buying experience I would recommend Ellen to anyone."

- Javier in Woodstock
"We were retired and wanted to move from the Memphis TN area to some place closer to our son in Atlanta. We put our house on the market and when it sold we only had 30 days to find a house and make all the arrangements to move out of the old house. After giving Ellen what we wanted and needed to do she took over. She made a list of houses that met our criteria and we selected several to look at. She had done so well we were able to select a house and make an offer the first day (something totally unprecedented in all our previous moves). With her excellent advice, we quickly got a very acceptable contract. In addition to guiding us through all the necessary steps required for closing, she was able to facilitate the closing in Tennessee and the one in Georgia on the same day. This enabled us to move out of the old house and into the new one without having to store our furniture. Thank you. Ellen!"

- Jim in Rome
"It was a pleasure working with Ellen Hill from start to finish. We met Ellen at an open house when we were first looking for a house, and were quickly impressed with her friendly demeanor, professionalism, and knowledge of the area. We ultimately decided to buy a house in a different area, but remained in contact with Ellen as we needed the right agent to sell our condo in Marietta. Once the condo was renovated, Ellen went to work! Within three days of listing, we had a signed contract for far more than we expected to make, and well above the selling price of similar condos in our complex. And we closed within two weeks. Ellen walked us through the process, dealt professionally with a very difficult buyer and buyer's agent (saving us that headache!), and we are very, very happy with the result. Ellen is friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and a consummate professional. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"

- Susan in Marietta
"We could not have been happier with our decision to have Ellen as our agent while searching for our home. We interacted with two others before finding her and we are so glad we did. She was extremely professional, responsive, friendly and truly looked out for our best interests in finding the perfect home for our needs. I can't imagine using anyone else in the future for any real estate needs and would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends!"

- Gwen in Marietta
"Our experience with Ellen was better than we could have ever dreamed! The process of selling a home was new to us, but Ellen made it all very easy. She was so knowledgeable about the area and the other houses on the market, as well as the ones that had already sold. She advised us on a list price (which was more than we thought we could get), and she did an amazing job marketing our home. We were under contract after multiple offers in just FIVE DAYS for FULL ASKING PRICE!! She worked just as tirelessly for us to find our new home to buy. She was always so easy to get in touch with and was updating us daily on new listings and price changes on houses we were interested in. I don't know what we would have done without Ellen to walk us through the process of selling and buying from beginning to end. She is an amazing person, the best realtor that you will find anywhere, and someone who we would recommend to family, friends, or anyone looking to buy or sell a home. It was truly our pleasure to get to work with her!"

- Amanda in Dallas
"Ellen is the most gifted real estate professional I have ever had the privilege of working with. You will be blessed by her pleasant personality, her amazing flexibility, her insightful knowledge of properties and locations... I could go on and on. We just purchased a home in Marietta, Ga and Ellen was a huge part of finding the perfect home for our family."
