Buyers’ agents at Lisa Ellis and Company with Real Estate by Design are hand-picked and recruited by Lisa Ellis and come with exemplary experience and knowledge of area neighborhoods. We listen closely to the wants and needs of each client and stay on top of the constantly changing market.


The name Real Estate by Design speaks to the many individualized services the company offers. For sellers that means ensuring each home looks its best and is priced just right. Learn how we help our clients sell their Triangle-area homes faster and for top dollar.


"We start by designing an individualized selling plan for each client," Ellis says, "which includes making recommendations for painting, upgrades, repairs, staging, and more." When you work with our team, we will make the calls, set up appointments, pick your colors, and even do the staging ourselves when needed.

"Ultimately, each home we represent should look amazing, like a model home. We provide services that deliver," she explains. "And our sellers receive exceptional results."

In fact, Real Estate by Design homes consistently sell for more than 98 percent of their list price and 40 percent faster than the competition.

"Lisa helped us buy our first home, sell our first home, and buy our new house." — Peter


"We are usually aware of new listings as soon as they are available," says Ellis. "In a market this hot, it's important to get our clients in the door first, especially since many properties receive multiple offers and are selling for over asking price."

As a part of the initial consultation, our team talks new clients through the entire process, which includes ways to present as the best possible buyer, including having mortgage pre-approvals in hand and writing personalized letters to their seller.

"I'm a bit of a bulldog on behalf of all our clients—my whole team and I go out of our way to protect the interests of those we serve."

"It was wonderful to work with Lisa on the sale of my home. She gave me a lot of great advice prior to entering the market and then sold my house for a much higher price than I expected!" — Elizabeth

Our Clients Notice the Difference

Lisa Ellis and Company found success by eschewing a corporate culture designed around a more boutique approach to helping others and leaving things better than we found them.

“We don’t do weekly meetings, chili cook-offs, or caravan showings,” Ellis emphasizes. “Instead, we demonstrate a greater respect and appreciation for one another’s time, time that is better put to use serving the needs of our buyers and sellers and saving us time that is appreciatively spent with our families.”

The result is a long list of happy clients who come back to us as their Raleigh-Durham real estate agent again and again. But don't take our word for it. See what past buyers and sellers have to say about working with our team!
