Ellen did an exceptional job handling the purchase of my new home. I would give her the highest recommendation for expertise and professionalism. I hope this review will encourage you to purchase or sell your next home using Ellen.
We bought our first home through Ellen. She was extremely honest, patient, and thorough with us. When we decided on a house, she dealt with the seller who was difficult. Even after helping us, she has stayed in touch and answered any questions we have had, as well as made recommendations. She is very knowledgeable about the area and is highly recommended.
Ellen is the only reason we are in our happy home. We were at wits' end trying to deal with a for sale by owner with no home selling experience. The home owners would not negotiate, return calls, or show the property. At last we found Ellen and she made the impossible happen. Thank you for the experience, skills, and knowledge Ellen!

Ellen was my wife and I's real estate agent when we sold our home in Brentwood a few years ago, and was a real pleasure to work with. She thoroughly understood our situation, and goals with selling our home, and helped us to get the house into market ready condition that was pleasing for both us and the buyers. It certainly was a pleasurable experience to work with her, and I will certainly be in touch with her again when we re-enter the real estate market in the future!
Ellen Albright is an absolute pleasure to work with. Ellen takes the time to not only find a home in your price range but also the home of your dreams. Her family oriented attitude makes her approachable and easy to work with when finding the perfect home environment. Her savvy negotiation skills help ease the stress that comes with the sale and/or search of your home. With year’s real estate experience, Ellen's knowledge of the housing market is overwhelmingly competitive. Our experience with Ellen exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend her for future real estate inquiries. Ellen’s work ethic and congenial attitude make her the ideal real estate agent your family has been searching for.

Ellen did an excellent job on behalf of the homeowner, an elderly relative who decided to move back to her home state after the death of her husband. Ellen had to therefore be responsive to 3 people--the homeowner and my husband and me, as the homeowner's representatives. She was familiar with all the legal ramifications of working with title to the home being within a trust. Also, we live in another county and she was always available to be on-site at the home when we were unavailable. She was very helpful with recommendations for presentation for sale, had good contractors who could help with the repairs in a timely and thorough manner, and clean-out procedures. We would highly recommend Ellen.
We had stumbled upon an open house that Ellen had in DB. I felt comfortable talking to Ellen almost immediately and got impressed by her ability to explain complex real estate terms in a simple way. Ellen listened carefully to our needs (a rare skill these days) and was always able and available to answer any questions we had. There were a few hurdles we had to jump throughout the deal, but Ellen was on top of things, calm and professional.
Unlike many other agents that feel that once the deal is closed they are done, Ellen has continued to be there for us even after the closing. She offered us names of contractors we needed for home repairs and made herself available to provide for us in our absence. Thank you, Ellen, for helping us find the house we love!
Our house had been on the market with a previous realtor for 4 long and stressful months. We decided to look into other Realtors and were referred to Ellen Albright by friends of ours. Within a month Ellen had our house in contract as well as negotiated an offer on our new home. She negotiated both transactions perfectly and we are so happy with the outcome. We look forward to working with her in the future and will be referring any friends and family members looking to buy or sell.

Ellen was very knowledgable of the market in Discovery Bay. Ellen helped us find our current home a strike a fair price and terms with the seller. She and her agency provided me a list of contractors for changes to my home and they all have done a good job. I was so impressed with her that I used Ellen to sell my other home in a different market. The other realtor that had provided the buyer for my home was one of those agents that feels once they close the deal they are done and just waiting for their check. Ellen worked with the buyer to help them with arranging contractors to access the house so they could get bids for changes they wanted before close thereby enabling them to do work once escrow closed. Ellen always goes the extra mile.
Ellen, was wonderful. Buying a home is a stressful and confusing time, but Ellen made it a pleasurable experience. She took the time to listen to my wife, son and I and found a home that was perfect for us by getting us everything on our wish list. Ellen took the time to explain all the paperwork and financing to us and worked diligently with our lender to get us the lowest rate possible. Were two weeks into our new home and we couldn't be happier. Thanks Ellen, for finding the perfect home for our family.
I would recommend Ellen to anyone who is in need of a realtor. She not only sold my home but also helped my son find a rental. I found that her suggestions in how to prepare my home to market it were very helpful. I feel she went the extra mile in helping me find the professionals I needed to do repairs as well as stage my home. I have sold a couple homes over the years and by far Ellen has been the best??
Ellen is amazing and is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. She has incredible attention to detail, excellent follow-through, and is extremely kind and personable. She goes above and beyond what any realtor is expected to do. I would highly recommend Ellen Albright to anyone.
Ellen was very helpful in finding a house for us. She was always available to show us homes we were interested in and is knowledgeable in every aspect of home purchase. Ellen provided contractor references for any work we needed on the home. A pleasure to work with.
I have had the pleasure of working with Ellen during the sale of my home at Cove Lane in Discovery Bay. My situation was unique, since I moved out of State and Ellen had to deal with the many issues that appeared leading up to the sale. She was always willing, professional, and no task seemed too big for her, everything was dealt with in a professional matter. I felt totally comfortable the whole time, trusting and knowing everything would be taken care of. I can highly recommend Ellen, if you are looking for a realtor, look no further, just call Ellen Albright, she is truly a fine realtor and terrific person.
Yes I would recommend Ellen, for all of the above reasons. We had some issues with the lender we were using and Ellen was right there to help us navigate through the process and come to a acceptable resolution. She was always ready to answer any questions we had, and went above and beyond to get us to close on time.

My husband and I had stumbled upon a open house Ellen was having in Brentwood. We had tossed around the idea of moving a few times, but never did anything about it. After meeting Ellen for just 5 minutes, I felt what a genuine and caring person she was. That day we set up an appointment with her to look at our house, and set a sell value. We were please with everything, put our house on the market and she sold it in less than 5 days. Ellen also helped us find our new house. She listened to our needs and wants, and kept us on track when we were not. We have been in our new house for 3 weeks now. From the initial meeting to this point, working with Ellen has been a wonderful experience!

Ellen is a great gal! She is sharp, so knowledgeable, and definitely a dedicated real estate agent. She moved the process of our purchase in record time and was on top of the situation every step of the way. She has continued to be there for us even after the closing to ensure every last detail needed to be completed is accomplished. She does not waiver in her commitment to her clients. She has made herself available to provide assistance in whatever way needed to accommodate an easy transition into our new location, even to the extent of stepping in for us in our absence. Thank you, Ellen, for the extraordinary services you have extended to us. You are the best!
