Thanks for all your help. What you did was far beyond any reasonable expectation of a real estate agent and Merrill and I very much appreciate it. I truly hope there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for all your efforts.

From the first day we met and discussed the listing, we both felt that we had found our Realtor. After accepting an offer, you guided us through the minefield of forms and inspections that were required and even that was relatively painless.  Even the few times when we were concerned about something, we knew that we would soon be getting a call from you telling us to "relax and let me do the worrying".  Well, that we did, and now we are sitting in our new home and wondering  how it all happened so fast!

I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend you to anyone looking to sell (or buy for that matter) a home.  Just call Ellen and relax...

On behalf of Heather and myself let me say how grateful and appreciative we are for everything you did to put us into our first home. Your professionalism and expertise never faltered, even through the "normal" ups and downs of (especially) this market. Particularly for us as first time buyers; depending on you for all of the usual things one needs from an agent plus the additional occasional sessions as teacher and even therapist, you informed, updated, and managed expectations efficiently but always with a human (and often humorous) touch that showed us both time and again that your primary concern was Us - your clients.

Having had two rather unsuccessful agent experiences before being recommended to you, we could not imagine working with anyone else.

Thank you,

Brian and Heather Schlichter


My husband and I recently worked with Ellen Katzman as our agent to purchase a house in Woodland Hills, CA.

I just wanted  to tell you how pleased we were working with Ellen as our agent.

She was nothing short of EXCEPTIONAL. We saw over 30 houses and scanned 100’s more over a 5 day period. She worked diligently and patiently until we found a house of our liking (we were extremely particular and wanted a lot for a tight budget.) When we found one, she was very firm with the sellers to ensure we got the best price possible. Although she was firm, she was very diplomatic with the sellers, to keep them at the table negotiating with us through several offer iterations.

She worked hard to point out to us the advantages and disadvantages to the house to ensure there were no unpleasant surprises later on. She had a very sharp eye for value and helped estimate well in short order what it would take to get the house to our eventual liking.

She also had dozens of reliable and reputable contacts that she shared with us to give us a “leg up” on transitioning smoothly into the new house (she recommended all the inspectors, pool repair, painters, kitchen renovators, roofers, and numerous others). We found each to be competitively priced and of exceptional work ethic and quality. This helped us enormously through an otherwise stressful relocation, given that we were completely new to the area with no contacts of our own.

We respect Ellen’s professionalism so much, we would continue to recommend her to anyone.  My husband and I have worked with over a 15 agents in our history of house buying and selling, and Ellen is clearly THE BEST.

We not only consider her a valued business partner, but also have become close friends through this process. Both Frank and I came to love Ellen so much we invited her to our wedding a few weeks after closing.

I feel that I must write regarding our recent real estate transactions with Ellen Katzman.

Ellen Katzman represented my husband, daughter and me in a recent sales contract.   We met with Ellen and one other agent and we were completely blown away by Ellen’s presentation.  From the moment she walked into our home, we knew we were dealing with a professional.  She had taken the time to research our area, prepared the comps and was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the process we were embarking on.  She presented us with a well crafted, informative brochure about her company, her experience, our neighborhood and won our trust with her helpful approach.

Not only did she aggressively market our home, she did what we felt she would do – she sold our home in one week!  She didn’t stop with the sales contract either.  She actively worked with us and the buyer’s agent, ironing out problems before they became major, coordinated with the relocation company and in a word made the whole process appear seamless.

We were so impressed with her, that we subsequently listed our condo with her and my daughter and son-in-law listed their home with her.

I must say, she didn’t disappoint.  The buyer for the condo had some problems with their lender, and if it hadn’t been for Ellen’s diligence, we believe we would never have closed.  The lender’s delays, and the seeming lack of concern on the part of the buyer’s agent, almost cost us another property in Texas that we were purchasing. We were at the point that we were ready to pull out of escrow. She encouraged us to bear with the process, and she would try to bring the sale to conclusion.  We were thirteen days late closing, but she did it!

Ellen Katzman is a treasure, as I am sure you must know, but we felt we had to add our heartfelt thanks to Prudential for recognizing her talent and making her a part of your sales team.
