    My Client Testimonials

    It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Ellen Gesell in the listing and sale of our home. Ellen possesses all of the attributes necessary to be an excellent agent: she knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with her clients. Ellen is both very professional and personable and the balance of these two qualities could not have made us feel more comfortable to have our home in her hands. The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as the outstanding photography Ellen arranged of our home, the prompt and very attractive MLS listing she put together, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, integrity and grace and thus we were able to sell our home in less than a month within the exact price range we had in mind. Therefore, we give Ellen Gesell our highest recommendation for any residential real estate needs as we could not have imagined a better experience!
    We are so grateful to Ellen for her expertise, experience, and professional performance. We met Ellen while looking for a downtown Sarasota condo, she listened to our needs and wants, and she provided us quickly with exactly what we wanted. We were able to get an immediate contract on the property and close extremely quickly even though we were out of town. We never could have done it without Ellen! Beth and Rian Sarasota, FL
    "Ellen is a true professional that doesn't miss a detail throughout what is often a trying and stressful process.  Ellen handled the sale of our home and assisted us for the build of our new one. Many times she was on top of what the other parties should have been doing to ensure that the transaction went to closing.  She has successfully sold and helped us purchase multiple properties!" Anthony Palmetto, FL
