Ellen is a fantastic realtor! She took time out of her schedule several times over a period of years to show us homes in a 55+ community, even when she knew we weren't yet ready to buy. She set us up to get listings that matched our criteria so we could keep our eye on the market, which was super helpful. When it was finally time to buy, we flew in from over 2,000 miles away and Ellen was very respectful of the limited time we had to look at homes. She organized the properties on our interest list and showed them to us efficiently in a short period of time. In just 3 short days, Ellen made it possible for us to view a long list of homes, make an offer, process a counter offer, sign a purchase agreement and even get the home inspection completed before we had to leave town! She kept us well informed with good communication throughout the entire process and truly made the challenge of a cross-country relocation much more manageable than it could have been. We are thrilled with our new home and have Ellen to thank for making it possible to find it.

We got in touch with Ellen Kaplan four years before our retirement. She faithfully sent us potential listings every month that fell within our parameters and kept in touch. When the time came to buy, she showed us a beautiful townhouse on our first day of going out with her. She had listened to how important it was to be in walking distance of a clubhouse/fitness center, within our price range and with features we would enjoy. Ellen is professional and pleasant to work with, but most importantly, she is responsive. If we had a question, Ellen usually got back to us the same day, if not the same hour. That reassurance was critical to us out-of-state buyers. Thank you, Ellen!

Dream Realtor = Dream House but only if you work with Ellen Kaptain! There isn't enough space to praise the caring, friendly, knowing, competent and fun professional that is Ellen! She actively listened to my "wish" list and educated me about the greater LV area and the 55plus choices that fit my needs. The search went quickly in a competitive market and I am now in my dream home - all in less than a month! Thank you Ellen! Work with Ellen and she will find your dream home!
