That I was dealing with a very professional realtor.
I cannot say enough about the quality of service and the performance of Ellen. She is very knowledgeable about her profession and

"When looking to buy in the Waynesville/Maggie Valley area, I reached out to several local brokers. Ellen Sithers was the only one to return my call and she was both responsive and proactive during the entire buying process. She is very knowledgeable about the area and process of buying real estate in the mountains. Their are some unique challenges with building in the mountains. Ellen made sure I knew what those challenges are and found me the right people and resources to find out answers to my questions. I have referred my family and friends to Ellen and will continue to do so!
When my sister was looking for a home in Maggie Valley 2 years ago, I contacted several brokers in the area. Ellen was the only one who returned a call and has been responsive ever since!
I was concerned about the limited building envelop of the lot becasue the prior contract fell through because the buyer couldn't build what they wanted to. Ellen arranged to have a builder meet me a mark out the envelop to show me that I could build at least a 2500/sf home and a 2 car garage, positioned to take advantage of the views."

"During our first meeting with Ellen, we were impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market and her friendly, outgoing personality - traits we think are essential for a good real estate agent. She was clear when explaining how she (and the company) would advertise our home. The comparisons she used in pricing our home further confirmed our thoughts about her: she was up-to-date on the market and knew how to interpret data to come to the right price. Even though she had to go out of town, she was always in contact with the agent who took over and was aware of the progress of our sale. She went above and beyond to help us arrive at the final sale. We would unconditionally recommend her."
Phyllis Small, Waynesville (Seller) Fri, 26 May 2017 07:02:34 +1000
"I am pleased to have the opportunity to highly recommend Ellen Sither of your Waynesville, NC office. Ellen initially became my agent by chance in 2013 when I walked into your Waynesville office after having viewed a listing advertised in your office window. Ellen was on duty at the front desk at the time.
Over a number of years I have purchased and sold 10 homes in various states and have utilized the services of numerous realtors. However, Ellen Sither is the star that stands out above all the others. She is intelligent, articulate, extremely knowledgeable, well organized, meticulous and thorough in every aspect of her job. Additionally she listens to and follows up on all concerns expressed. If she does not have an answer, or the requested information at the time she will conduct research until the issue has been resolved. She always places her clients first and is totally dedicated to their complete satisfaction.
It has been my pleasure and privilege to work with Ellen. I hope to be able to work with her once again in the not too distant future. She is a valuable asset to your office!"

Lana Bowen. Lake City, Florida (Seller) Tue, 27 Dec 2016 10:38:29 +1000
"I was nearly 1,200 miles away when we started. I was shy. I was stubborn. I needed a home immediately, but couldn't give an exact date. I had strict requirements. I wanted my dream home. I wanted to buy a home in a town I had only visited once. If it isn't obvious, I probably wasn't the ideal client. Ellen took me on as a client and I am so thankful for that. She was attentive to my needs. She gave me great advice. She helped make the most of a stressful time in my life. I was a complete stranger and she treated me as if I was family. I highly recommend Ellen."

"I found Ellen on a google search and she was selected( along with 3 others) due to her background in selling both houses and land. I had a need for someone to do both. I met with all 4 that I had originally selected and found that Ellen was far above the rest. She was well prepared, have obviously done her homework, was smart and had a good grasp of reality. She immediately recognized the situation I was in and could not have been more helpful. She took care of everything and made it happen. She has a blend of persuasion, backbone and compassion....kind of all wrapped up in one package! Cant' say enough positive things about her and her abilities."
Brian Smith (Seller) Sat, 02 Apr 2016 00:02:57 +1000
"Ellen is a great asset to your firm and the community. She has to be one of the hardest working realtors I know. The fact she is patient and willing to meet you anywhere anytime was extremely helpful. Her knowledge and willingness to use technology was very important as I live out of town. She is one of the good ones."
Sandi, Waynesville (Buyer) Fri, 19 Feb 2016 04:37:30 +1000

We highly recommend using Ellen when buying or selling real estate!."

That really impressed us and when it came time to sell our home we knew we wanted Ellen to be our realtor. She was always so helpful, honest, kind, encouraging, and full of knowledge. We not only sold our home, but bought the house we wanted! Ellen worked diligently to help us in any way possible. She made sure we were comfortable and pleased with all our decisions. If we sell again she is who we want as our realtor, but we won't be selling for a long time we love our new home!!!"

Ellen was very patient and showed us numerous homes throughout the area, in all price points. We ended up purchasing a real fixer-upper, one of the lowest prices in the search, but Ellen continued to work just as hard for us as she would for a million dollar home.
If you're looking for a professional, honest, fun person to search for your next home, there isn't a Realtor better in the Waynesville office."

As there we 3 different owners involved in this sale, Ellen was excellent in making sure each party understood and was informed of everything that was happening. Don't think we could have asked for a better agent.
We recommended Ellen to a friend and will do so in the future. Our overall experience was outstanding!!"

"My wife and I first met Ellen Sither Last summer when she was showing a client a property on our street. Joy and Ellen struck up a friendship from that point and her comment to me was that if we considered selling our unit that she wanted Ellen as our agent.
Ellen has proven to be tireless in her quest to find the right buyer for our unit, while honoring our wishes regarding our lovely summer home for these past eight years. Ellen's commitment to professionalism, maintaining a personal touch, giving us suggestions based upon her experience as to what plan we might consider - we deeply appreciate. She truly goes the extra mile.
The times we either spoke over the phone with someone who relayed our thoughts to Ellen, or met staff when we came to the Waynesville office, they were considerate, helpful and pleasant.
We are pleased to have worked with Ellen Sither and the support staff of Beverly-Hanks, Wayneswville, N.C."
Joy and Lou Mazzie - Sarasota Florida (Seller) Tue, 27 Jan 2015 15:01:05 +1000
"I spoke with a current Waynesville resident that I had met and gotten to know through the tourism industry in South Carolina many years ago. She and her husband had retired and moved to Waynesville. I asked her if she could recommend someone and she referred me to Ellen.
I am a licensed Realtor in SC and I thought our journey to purchase a home in Waynesville would be a fairly simple and straightforward one. I told Ellen what we thought we wanted and where we thought we wanted to be. We ended up buying where we told her we did not want to look and ended up with the perfect house for us to make our home. We met with Ellen on two visits to Haywood County. She showed us EVERY option available to us considering our wants, needs, expectations and preferences. She THEN showed us properties she thought we would like. It is one of these properties that we purchased. The contract and most everything else was handled electronically. Ellen met inspection company personnel at the property and researched any issue that arose as a result of inspections. She made sensible and down to earth recommendations to us based on inspections and handled the issues for us.
Ellen made herself available when we needed her and truly presented us with every possible option for a Waynesville house. She took the time to talk with us, and more importantly, listen as we talked. It is easy to look at properties online and think you like them, but it is much easier to look in an area that you you would want to live. Ellen gently guided us in the right direction. She helped us reason through a number of scenarios and let us make the decision as to what would be best for us. We ended up writing an offer to purchase a house in an area we did not originally want to look at and Ellen helped us negotiate a fair and reasonable sales price. We closed yesterday and have already met with a hardwoods company, electrician, plumber and painter, many of which Ellen met on site and gave the information on the job we needed performed. The hardwooods company already has carpet removed from two bedrooms. Her recommendations have been spot-on!
We have already met several of our neighbors and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives."
Gene and Denise Butler, Charleston, SC (Buyer) Fri, 23 Jan 2015 13:06:51 +1000
"When Ellen took over the selling of our property, we knew right from the beginning we were in good hands. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and thorough with feedback, suggestions, etc. She did a tremendous job selling this property that was a hard sell.
I would recommend her to anyone that needs to buy or sell their property. The whole process went quickly and smoothly.
Always friendly whenever I called.
Ellen had everything in place - new pictures were made, negotiating with the buyers, handling the escrow, inspections, quick closing, etc. all went very smoothly.
I have to give an Excellent grade on all the above.
Ellen did a great job with no effort on my part because of her knowledge, loving what she does, along with a great personality."
Sharon Eickelbeck (Seller) Wed, 03 Dec 2014 08:39:20 +1000

I would go back to her for any future real estate needs without hesitation!!"

Her choice of photographer was excellent and really showcased our house to its full potential. She kept us well informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend Ellen whether buying or selling property in the area."
John & Rose (Seller) Fri, 24 Oct 2014 04:01:25 +1000
"Ellen's background in Accounting and having moved from a city(Atlanta) to Waynesville gives Ellen a different perspective. I think she understood my reluctance to move too far out and found the perfect area for us.
Finding just the right neighborhood for our family proved to be very difficult. Ellen went above the call of duty- we saw every house in our price range and even toured some neighborhoods that she thought may work. We ended up at the Lake and couldn't be happier."

"I purchased this property from Switzerland through Ellen Sither. Her professionalism, patience and organizational skills made this a comfortable, efficient and successful transaction. Ellen's friendly personality and straight talk added a sense of assurance for what could have been a nerve raking process. She was very helpful providing a list of service providers needed for closing. She is resourceful and very transparent. I will recommend Ellen without any hesitation to my family, friends and colleagues."

"Ellen took over for Donna White and has been so helpful and caring, always available to ans. question at any time. Being the first house we bought - at 80 yrs. of age ( we previously built all our homes) we needed lots of guidance and Ellen is the best. Since the deal has closed we miss her and consider her an awesome agent and a good friend."
Ted & Pat Babinger, Waynessville, NC (Seller) Sun, 03 Aug 2014 02:07:41 +1000
"This is the second home we purchased with Ellen Sither as our Realtor and I couldn't imagine going through the process with anyone else. There are so many factors involved when purchasing a home- especially when purchasing a home in North Carolina while living in Florida. Ellen handled everything from previewing the home to the walk-through & closing and all those details in-between…and there were a lot of them. She was always available by phone, text or e-mail and communicated everything in real time. She went above and beyond what is required, like going to the County on our behalf to pick up reports to sitting around at the house after we closed waiting for DirecTV to show up and hook up our TV’s. Ellen Sither is an asset to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home and I would recommend her to my family and closest friends. Thank you Ellen!"

"I was very happy with Ellen. Even though my home was a challenge to sell, I felt like Ellen made every effort to get the house sold. She was very helpful in getting me in touch with people I needed to talk to in order to get moved out of the house. I live out of state and she just made everything easy! I was very happy with the photos that were taken of the house to be used in print advertising.
She's awesome and I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a realtor in Waynesville!"
Cherie Baird, Huntsville, Alabama (Seller) Sat, 14 Jun 2014 12:30:47 +1000
"I have known some of Ellen's friends and family for 30yr. She is highly regarded among friends and family. She certainly lived up to all I had been told about her.
Ellen showed me many properties over 6 months or more even though she was aware I might not be ready for awhile. She was very patient with me.
Even though I know Ellen is a very busy agent she always treated me as if I could take my time looking.
Everyone else I met in the office were kind and helpful. Amanda, who helped the day of closing was very sweet and energetic.
I hope I'm in my last home, but if I ever sell or buy another home Ellen Sither will be my agent."

"We have used many realtors in the past, some more successful than others. Ellen is a standout among all of the realtors we have used. Exceptional communicator, and made the process seamless."
Michael Douglas, San Antonio, TX (Seller) Mon, 28 Apr 2014 15:54:43 +1000
"I would like to recommend Ellen Sither to anyone looking to sell or buy property in the mountains! Ellen will spend the time necessary to help you get the results you want and be candid as to the expectations of price and budget for the area. Ellen treats you like your house is the most important listing she has even if you know there are bigger things out there and makes you feel comfortable that it is being looked after .
Ellen is extremely good at explaining the process along the way and preparing for the next step in the process! I thought the advertising, photos and description of the property were very nice and inviting to prospective buyers! Ellen spends a great deal of time doing research on properties that effect or would be in competition with yours and this knowledge is power in selling ! I didn't know an agent Waynesville but I lucked out and found the best for me!!

"Ellen helped us narrow our options, ultimately allowing us to feel secure in our choice. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the buying process made our experience very positive and stress free. I would recommend her unconditionally,"
Leslie Isley, Maggie Valley (Buyer) Tue, 08 Apr 2014 12:39:45 +1000
"Purchasing a second home in North Carolina while living in Florida could be extremely difficult and stressful however dealing with Ellen it was neither. Ellen made us feel like we were her only clients and made the process fun and simple. She went above and beyond what most Realtors would do for their clients and far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Ellen to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home- especially if they are from out of town. Not only do I have a new agent I feel we have a few friend."

"What a fantastic experience we had with Ellen. We are from Chicago trying to buy a house in Maggie Valley. We had to rely alot on Ellen and from day one she continued to impress us. Her knowledge of real estate, the area and the little things we had to think about were something that we relied on from her. She was organized, professional, and detailed-oriented from the first day we met her to the day of closing. She made this experience for us one that we felt very comfortable doing, in a foreign environment. If you work with Ellen you will not be sorry! She is fantastic! And did I mention funny? Thanks Ellen we love you!!!!!"
Denise Nolan, West Chicago, IL (Buyer) Wed, 08 Jan 2014 08:00:51 +1000
"No, no improvement necessary. I can't say enough good about Ellen and Nancy and your entire staff, I think you can tell by my previous comments. :-) Ellen and Nancy are friends for life, can you have a better compliment!
I have said all I need to say in my comments throughout the survey, all good. This is just repetition. Ellen was super good."

"My husband and I were so very happy that we selected Ellen Sither as our agent. I felt an immediate rapport with her from our very first meeting. She was positve and encourating, while at the same time stressing the reality of selling a house in our area. You could see that she liked our house and was interested in representing us. She was clear about the comparables that she had found and described the marketing plan that she was going to use. She made some valuable up front suggestions (like the benefit of having a pre-inspection done) without trying to pressure us to do so. She provided us with month by month feedback as to the amount of traffic, both in person, and online, that our property was receiving.
I think, however, that a huge part of our positive experience with Ellen came during the contract negotiations, and then during the due-diligence period. She walked us through that process very thoroughly, explaining all of the steps that would take place. She was really so helpful when it came to getting various details worked out per the inspection on the buyer's side. Because we were not in North Carolina during all of these negotiations, Ellen provided us with lists of contractors, even going so far as to call some of them to schedule the work and meeting these contractors in the house while the work was being done. It was really difficult to attend to all of these last-minute details while being so far away. I credit Ellen with all the help that she gave us in getting the closing to go so smoothly. Her friendly, soothing personality goes a long way in helping one over the anxieties of closing a deal."

"Thanks to Ellen we managed to buy our home very quickly, had no worries and LOVED the whole experience. Ellen listened to me and we bonded from the start. I had total faith in her and trusted her from the start. My friend was right about how good Ellen was. It couldn't have been any better. I really can't say enough good things about Ellen or my experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Ellen!!"

She faced unique and troublesome circumstances but kept her focus and successfully closed the purchase. We were thrilled with her results."

"We have felt like royalty since we first contacted your offices and Ellen Sither especially. Now we have moved and are having 'withdrawal symptoms" not being in correspondance with Ellen every day. WE LOVE HER!
There were a number of very frustrating occurances that happened during the sale of our home and purchase of another. Ellen Sither handled every stumbling block in a professional and positive manner. She calmed us when we got angry. She always knew the best avenue to solve the problems that arose, and she pulled us through both cloosings in a superb and loving manner. We would use Ellen again and certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy and or sell. Thank you, Ellen."
