Lisa Ellis
Senior Partner | NC Realtor®

One of the elite Top 5% of agents in North Carolina and has been licensed since 1996. Lisa believes that hard work, market knowledge and a genuine passion for helping people are the keys to her success. These fundamentals will continue to motivate and inspire her in this ever-growing, constantly changing industry – and she loves it!

I was born and raised in the Triangle. I grew up in Durham County but have lived in each of the three counties that make up the Triangle area. I have spent the last 40+ years watching this region grow and change and I’m so proud to be a part of the advancement. I have an extensive knowledge of what each county has to offer. From schools and shopping to restaurants and outdoor activities, it is my job to know what’s going on in town. I have seen thousands of homes throughout the Triangle area. Every house is unique, as are the communities that embrace them.

I love my job as a Realtor! I get to work with so many wonderful people every day. I have a responsibility to provide knowledge, experience and reassurance to those people – an obligation that I always fulfill. I enjoy sharing my expertise. The more I can educate the consumer about the market place, the more confident they are in their endeavors. Since I am well-versed in three counties, I am familiar with more homes therefore enabling a more perfect fit.

Many of my clients recruit me not only to help them find a new home, but to sell their old house first. I thoroughly enjoy this process as I feel I am able to take care of these folks from start to finish. Another distinguishing aspect of my company is that I have a fantastic office staff! They are trained to handle any situation that may arise. They enable me to provide outstanding customer service because when you hire me, you hire us all! I don’t cut my commission because I don’t cut my services. I provide expert representation one client at the time.
