Our Client Testimonials

Ellen put our house on the market on a Friday and we took off for a weekend in Tahoe, only to return and find that Ellen had 3 solid offers on our house. We sold it that Monday! In addition, Ellen sold us the house of our dreams in the beautiful East Highlands overlooking the golf course and a panoramic view of the Santa Clara Valley. Given our busy schedules, Ellen constantly met with inspectors, plumbers, roofers, etc. and followed the sale of both homes to their completion. Ellen is not only a great Realtor, she has become our neighbor and friend. We would highly recommend her!

The McQuarries

It was a great pleasure to work with Ellen Rauh when recently purchasing our new home. Our decision to use Ellen was confirmed again and again to be the correct decision. Especially when dealing with the selling agent of our new house and buying agent of our old abode. We found Ellen to be far more reliable and knowledgable. A problem arose with the closing of our old home and Ellen had a contigency plan in place before we even had to chance to worry. We highly recommend Ellen as a reputable and efficient real estate agent.

Ellen's been my realtor for 2 purchases and 1 sale. In each case, Ellen went the extra mile for me to get the job done. She cares and it shows. Before meeting Ellen, I had worked with several other realtors. None had the knowledge, drive and great attitude that Ellen does. She is the only realtor I'll ever use in this area in the future.


I want to compliment you on the speed, efficiency, professionalism and performance you did to bring the sale of my mother's home to a quick and happy conclusion. You are a true professional and an asset to the real estate profession. I was very impressed and I can't thank you enough for all you did to bring this sale to a conclusion. Your personality, honesty and hard work make a good combination for your well-earned success.
