Testimonials

Ellen was a wonderful realtor to work with. Refreshing approach to selling homes. She believes the home will sell itself. No fluff no stuff. She is honest and straight forward. We appreciated this about her. She made herself available to us from the start and never let up all the way through closing. She was informative about the area since we were moving from out of state and this was a big help. Our daughter recommended her because she had been her buyer's agent. I appreciated how she had helped my daughter with the purchase of her 1st home. So Ellen thank you on two counts!. Happy Home Owner for Ellen Hough
Our experience with Ellen Hough as our realtor was wonderful. Moving can be a stressful time especially if you are moving from another state. Ellen was very helpful and very knowledgeable about this area. She went above and beyond our expectations. She was always there for us if we had any questions or concerns and made us feel like we were her only clients! Ellen Hough did a outstanding job and I would recommend you to use her as your Realtor. Noi L. for Ellen Hough
Ellen is without a doubt the BEST agent we've ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Not only did she take us around to numerous (14+) houses in the Jacksonville, NC area, she was extremely honest. Ellen was straight forward with her opinions of the places she was showing and we were so happy to have someone so open and helpful. She stuck with us through six weeks of a battle to buy a "short sale" and then put up no fight when we backed out of the short sale and moved on to the home we did eventually buy. I look forward to all of our future business with Ellen and her wonderful team at EXIT Independence Realty. She's not only our buying agent but her company is also our property manager for our rental property. She's amazing. You'll love her...happy home buying! Nikki L. for Ellen Hough

As a first time home buyer I knew I wanted someone who knew the area, had insight into the different neighborhoods, and was an expert in the real estate business. I knew I found the right person when I went to Ellen. I felt overwhelmed with what I wanted and prices and how to make a good deal because I'd never had to do it before. Ellen helped me so much. She gave excellent advice, listened to everything I wanted and still kept my feet planted firmly on the ground. She gave me lots of listings to choose from and didn't seem exasperated or frustrated with me when I couldn't make a decision right away. She went above and beyond for me to make sure I got the house, for a great deal, and even lent me he trailer so I could move my stuff in as soon as possible. I will recommend her to everyone who asks me for a suggested realtor. Happy First Time Home Owner for Ellen Hough
To Whom It May Concern: For three years Jeff and I had been living in a two bedroom/one bathroom home. It was a quaint, charming home just off the waterfront that my fiance' bought before we were together. Once I moved in with all of my things, trying to squeeze our two lives together in an 800 sqf home was testing the limits of our sanity. After bumping into each other for the millionth time, we went to our good friend and awesome real estate agent, Ellen, for help. Ellen had sold Jeff the house we were currently living in, and was more then happy to help us find a home to fit "our" needs. As this was my first home purchase, I wasn't really sure what to expect. Ellen though, was amazing! She listened to all our wants, helped us make some tough decisions, gave us loads of information on the different neighborhoods in the area, worked with my "overly picky" nature, and eased any doubts we had. She found us a great home, filled with everything we wanted and bonus's we hadn't thought we'd love, but couldn't live without now. After settling on a mortgage company, we thought it would be a smooth process. We were surprised at how complicated things became, even with our perfect credit. Ellen took it upon herself, above and beyond the call of "a realtor's duty" in my opinion, to get the mortgage company in gear and get our loan pushed through. After almost 2 months of waiting and hearing from Ellen almost daily with updates and words of encouragement, the loan FINALLY went through. We wouldn't be enjoying the wonderful home we now live in if Ellen hadn't moved "heaven and earth" to get us what we wanted. I would recommend Ellen to every single person in Jacksonville who is looking for a house! She is an amazing realtor who truly goes out of her way to get you into the house of your dreams. If you're looking to find yourself a new home and don't know who to choose...look no further then Exit Jacksonville. Give Ellen a call, and tell her Jeff and Ronnie sent you.

My experience in purchasing a home with Ellen Hough was absolutely delightful. She was immaculate in explaining everything, very prompt and responsive when I needed to get in touch with her, and overall open and honest with the properties we walked through. She did not want us to settle for less, and she did not act as though every property was the right home for my wife and I. I would highly recommend anyone purchasing a home in the Jacksonville or surrounding area to look up Ellen. David S. for Ellen Hough
Ellen, Courtney & I appreciate your help greatly. You helped us make finding the house we have been looking for. When we first began house hunting we almost lost hope, but when we were referred to you; you helped us so much. We told you all the things we were looking for to call a house our home and you did it. If we had any question what so ever you were there day and night picking up our calls and solving our problems. THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN!!! Josh M. for Ellen Hough
I was very LUCKY enough to work with Ellen not only purchase but sell my house. When I was looking to purchase I wasn't even in the state but she collected numerous houses to look at. She had everything ready for when I returned so all I had to do was get off the plane and look at the houses. Which was very easy because I told her what I was looking for and every house we looked at was what I asked for, so all I had to do was pick the one I liked the best. Once I picked the house the process was very quick and easy once again I was out of the state working and she closed on the house for me. Then when I was ready to sell the house I called Ellen back, she was ready to help get the house on the market. She was able to have my house sold within 2 weeks and the neighborhood that the house was in had at least 5 other houses for sale. They were on the market for 3-5 months and still on the market when mine sold. This just shows Ellen really knows what she is doing and is there to work for you. Its to bad I had to leave the area do to work but I really wish I could have Ellen in my new destination to help purchase my next house she was GREAT. I would recommend Ellen Hough to everyone to help purchase or sell you house. Jason C. for Ellen Hough
We would like to take the opportunity to thank Ellen Hough for going the extra mile for us. We had the distinct privilege of having her represent us as both buyer and seller. We first moved back to Jacksonville in 2005 and she worked with us to buy a home while we were still living in Georgia. We were on a very compressed timeline and she took us house hunting over a weekend. After looking at about six homes we found the one we wanted and she quickly moved us through the drudgery of closing. Ellen worked very closely with the builders to complete the home on time and to our specifications. Closing was seamless and she continued to ensure our home was finished before we moved in. Over the past five years, Ellen was always checking on us to see if we were still satisfied with our home. We finally had to move again and our first choice for a realtor was Ellen Hough. She was very helpful in getting our home on the market and under contract before we had to leave Jacksonville. We were confident that she would take care of us and allowed her to finalize the details in our absence. Ellen is a class act and she takes pride in taking care of her customers. I would recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell a home. Steve B. for Ellen Hough
Ellen, I would like to take the time to personally thank you for our wonderful experience having you as our Realtor. As you well know, buying a home can be a very challenging time full of the unexpected and unknowns. If you add-in an additional 3,000 miles of separation for out of town buyers, it definitely adds to the frustrations. As soon as we made the initial contact, you were extremely helpful in easing our concerns and were extremely forthcoming in providing valuable information. You were available day and night and always responded back immediately no matter how trivial our questions and apprehensions were. Your willingness to walk us through every step of the way, standing in on our behalf at the closing, conducting the walk-through inspection and genuinely looking out for our best interest was greatly appreciated. Most importantly, you truly understood our family's concept of an ideal home and the difficulties surrounding searching for it from across country. When all of our home selections didn't meet our requirements and we believed that we were out of options, you found our dream home. Again, thank you for your patience, willingness to go above and beyond our expectations as well as finding our dream home. It was a great experience having you as our Realtor. Thank You! Jason B. for Ellen Hough
I am writing this letter to inform you that my experience with Ellen Hough from Exit Realty in Jacksonville NC was amazing! All of the questions I had she answered immediately and made sure that I understood all of my options. She knew a good bit about my personality and what I was looking for and that helped her choose great potentials for me to purchase. She worked around my schedule of two jobs and school to help me find the house I currently bought! I sincerely enjoyed the services she provided including the free trailer to help me move into my new place! That saved me time and money since I could get the trailer days in advance to start packing up my old location and get ready for the move. Ellen was there for me from the day I said I wanted to start looking at houses to sitting in the lawyer’s office signing off on all of the documents for the house. Since I have moved in she has made sure that the house is working out in my favor and that everything was good. The entire team at Exit Realty was extremely friendly and helped to take off any stress that this buying experience put on. When I go through this process again in the future, I will definitely start my search with Exit Realty and hope that Ellen is there to help. A very satisfied client of Exit Realty, and Owner of Leonard St. Jeff F. for Ellen Hough
