Lisa Ellis and Company



Lisa has helped me with the sale of two of my homes, and the purchase of my current home. Lisa is amazing to work with! She is on the ball at ALL times, responds to any issues right away. I was traveling when I put my rental home on the market, and Lisa went to the house to make sure all my utilities were turned back on after the tenants had left so the house could be shown right away. She made the entire process seamless and super easy! House was sold within a week of being on the market! I didn't even have to be at the closing, she handled everything for me! Lisa will always be my go-to girl with all my real estate needs.

This is the second house that Lisa helped us sell and we are more than satisfied for both times. She has a great understanding about local real estate market and she is very honest and realistic (in the world where too many people tell you only what you want to hear). Our house had been rented to 4 different families with kids and dogs in the past 10 years so it needed a lot of work before it was put on the market for sale. The first 2 offers we had failed to go through and we felt depressed and thought we were never able to sell our house... Lisa was there for us every step of the way, helping us make repair and improvement decisions, negotiating prices and terms, and offering emotional support. Her patience and perseverance finally paid off and our house was sold after the 3rd offer! If you need to buy or have a house to sell, I highly recommend you hire Lisa to be your agent -- you will be in good hands.

Lisa Ellis and her staff were outstanding to work with! She listened to our views as we tried to determine the optimum list price, she ensured we had top notch photos for our listing, and she was always available, either by phone or in person, to discuss strategy or answer questions. We highly recommend Lisa if you are looking for excellent, personalized service!

- John & Susan B.

Lisa and her team gave us excellent service from listing to closing! We live out of the area and she went above and beyond to handle any thing that we needed or any problem that arose. She was always available to us and kept us informed every step of the way. We highly recommend Lisa and her team!

Lisa Ellis and Company are hands down the best you could ever hope for in a home buying, or selling experience anywhere. They are fantastic. The level of professionalism is amazing. From the initial listing, to the day of closing, they take care of everything. I wish I could add an additional 10 stars to this review. You will not be disappointed. If you are looking to sell, or Lisa Ellis and Company.

I can't say enough good things about Lisa and her team! My wife and I worked with her when buying a house 5 years ago and recently to sell a house. She's very knowledgeable of the area and fantastic when it comes time to negotiate. We sold our house quickly and above asking. I have recommended her many times to colleagues and will continue to do so!

- Drew K.

We've sold two houses with Lisa and she's been great! She arranged all the work that needed to be done on the houses in a timely manner. In both experiences, the houses sold quickly with very little stress on our end.

Lisa was my listing agent for my house in Durham, NC. I had great experience working with Lisa. She struck me as a real estate specialist who delivers her promises. Before hiring her, she promised the house would sell at a price I would accept, and she delivered. She promised my house would sell within one week, and she achieved that. She also promised she would keep me timely informed on each step of the process because I lived remotely, and she accomplished! I trust all of these stem from her confidence, professionalism, and superb experience with the market and the work. She is highly recommended!

If you want a successful sale of your home you have to go with someone who knows the area. Lisa was referred to us by a neighbor as well as a close friend. She was everything they said she would be and more. Her knowledge of the area neighborhoods as well as her network of business associates made for a quick and painless sale of our home. I highly recommend her and her team and look forward to their involvement in the purchase of my next home. A true professional.

- Victor Serrano

Lisa and her very attentive staff kept us informed and up to date during the process of selling our home. She was extremely helpful in negotiating a very difficult inspection report. She is a very experienced, competent, and professional realtor.

- Bruce & Nora

Lisa treats her clients like family, she worries about them, fights for them, and does everything she can to make sure they're treated with love and respect. Hands down the best.

- Mike T

Thank you Lisa & company for assisting us in the sale of our home! I knew we were in good hands from your first visit to the last! If anyone knows the area & all of south Durham has to offer ... I highly recommend Lisa & her team!

- Kathy S

Lisa worked with my mother in law during what was a very difficult transition time after my father in law's extended illness and death. She went above and beyond in helping her with all aspects of her home sale, from staging to the actual sale--assisting her with document signing when her home internet wasn't functional, recommending resources to help her with repairs, and most of all supporting her through the process. Lisa's team also was extremely professional in assisting my mother in law--she just couldn't have been more pleased with the service she got from Lisa.

- Lesley

Many thanks to Lisa and her team for selling our house so quickly. They are a wonderful, friendly, professional team who knows the real estate business. She was recommended to us by a real estate friend who lives outside of our market. Lisa and her company ranked high in our area. Thanks to Lisa, Erin and Sharon for doing a great job of marketing and selling our home.

- Joanne and Joe

Lisa and her team were absolutely great to work with. She helped us not only buy our dream home but also sell the one we were living in. Both transactions occurred seamlessly and in record time. She was very responsive to our calls and always able to answer our questions. She demonstrated a solid knowledge of the local housing market and gave us great advice along the way. We would definitely use Lisa again and would highly recommend her to others.

Lisa Ellis and Company made our home buying experiencing an easy one. Throughout the entire process I felt like I had Lisa by my side helping me ask for what I wanted and getting the work done in a very timely fashion. When I would communicate with her or her team I didn't have to wait for a response back. Someone was always there to guide me along the way. I would not hesitate to pass along Lisa Ellis and Company to any friend of family member in buying or selling a home.

My husband and I decided to downsize from our home in Croasdaile Farms, Durham, NC. After that decision , we had to decide on a realtor. We interviewed 3 realtors. Immediately we felt a connection to Lisa Ellis , Lisa Ellis Real Estate By Design. She came prepared to the meeting with information about our area and the other houses for sale in close proximity. She listened to what we said. She suggested a couple of things we should do before putting on the market. She and her design team member came over and made suggestions for staging, and actually physically rearranged some furniture. She sent over a professional photographer who took some great pictures. Our house pictures went online and we had nine showings in 4 days and sold in 4 days well over our asking price. I highly recommend Lisa Ellis and her team . She represented us very well!!

- Jo Anne and Elmo Yancey

Lisa and her team were amazing to work with - we outlined a plan, which was effective and our home had two offers OVER asking price and went under contract in just 3 days! Lisa's team followed through and communicated every minor detail, making this an easy, seamless and pleasant process. Everyone was beyond just professional, but also personable, and treated us like family. Look no further, Lisa Ellis and her team are your source for home selling and buying!

- Lily Van Dillen

Lisa and her team were great to work with both in selling our house and with buying our new house. We made things a little more complicated than usual, but they adapted and helped us get into a house that really makes us happy. Lisa really does want what's best for her clients.

- Jason Block

Lisa helped us buy our house and acreage in Hillsborough 17 years ago. Now that we are older and our needs have changed, she helped us sell our 7 acres with house. She helped get the house ready and staged so that it sold in a few weeks with several full price offers on the table. Her buyers agent Sharon Carter helped us look for a new house and was extremely patient with finding the right house. Thanks Lisa!

- Ted and Linda Fowler

We are seniors and Lisa first showed us houses 3 years ago when we came to this area from Idaho. We decided to rent for awhile and this summer, while out of state for 2 mos our daughter found a house she said we should consider. We called Lisa who looked at it with our daughter and the short story is Lisa helped us buy it from Wyoming! Scary thought, but with her expertise and our daughter onboard we closed on it Aug 15. Nothing is too hard for Lisa to do!!! We were doubly nervous trying to make decisions long distance but Lisa never made us feel we were being too picky and reassured us all our concerns were legitimate. Hire her!!

Lisa Ells was the broker for selling my home in Old North Durham in July of this year, and I am very happy to highly recommend her for her knowledge of the Durham real estate market, the efficient way she handled my property, and the overall professionalism of her office personnel. During the contract period, she ensured that all issues were amicably resolved, and I believe the buyer was happy with their purchase experience, too. I certainly was pleased with the result, which ended up in having my house sold at an above-asking price!

- Jim Ellenson

Lisa was quite competent in all respects. She was very reliable, and was always available to answer phone calls and texts. She had complete command of the paperwork required for the listing and sale as did her office staff.. LIsa had very helpful ideas for how to prepare the house for sale (painting, staging). Her painters were surprisingly economical. In short, she met or exceeded my expectations. I recommend her unconditionally.
