She also won second place for the highest gross commissions in the Halstead East Side office for January of 2018.

Ellen started her career in 2002 doing onsite work with new construction buildings through the Brodsky organization throughout the Midtown area. She also worked onsite in the exclusive Gramercy Park area in a well-known building at 280 Park Avenue South. Currently, Ellen has been with Halstead since 2007 and is consistently in the top ten East Side agent list every month since she joined the firm. Prior to Halstead, Ellen worked at a small boutique firm downtown. It was there that she learned the rental real estate market as completely as she does today. Her experience has led to a great knowledge of the product in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island City, as well as creating a large network between fellow brokers and working with landlords. This is very valuable to any client or customer Ellen works with.
Ellen's knowledge of neighborhoods spans from Battery Park City all the way uptown to Washington Heights and also Brooklyn and Queens and Long Island City. Since her onsite experience, she has done hundreds of rental deals in co-op, condo, and luxury doorman buildings throughout Manhattan. She has also closed many sales while working at Halstead in both co-ops and condominiums. Her clients often refer Ellen to friends because she is so approachable and hardworking.
Ellen's approach to rentals and sales has a lot to do with her previous background in theatre, being a successful Broadway actress for many years. Being an actress, Ellen has learned how to see things from her client's point of view, which makes her ability to meet her client's goals much more effective.
Ellen holds a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Michigan. She records and sings music on a regular basis and performs regularly at many venues in Manhattan. Ellen lives in Midtown West with her husband Kelly, but originally hails from a beautiful town along the Hudson River called Irvington, NY. Growing up so close to the city, Ellen has a long history with NYC! She could never be happy living anywhere else!
