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
