" I worked with Ellen to locate a property in the Herndon/Reston area and I was amazed by her knowledge of the local real estate market; of the valuation of comparable properties, and of the wide range of developments in this area. Her opinions on various properties and developments are priceless, and her empathy is truly incredible. Ellen goes out of her way to accommodate her clients' schedules and needs and demonstrates outstanding customer service - and human relations - skills. Ellen makes a real bond with her clients, and I believe that most of us come away thinking of her as a friend, not as a realtor. I had an excellent experience working with Ellen, and would definitely choose to work with her again in any future real estate transactions, and would certainly refer my friends to her when they buy or sell their homes. Ellen is simply terrific."

" Ellen is a real estate agent with a heart! I have finally found the perfect home for myself thanks to Ellen Moyer. This was not an easy task due to my specific requirements but the results are amazing! Even though it took a very long time for me to find what I wanted, at no time did I feel pressured by Ellen into taking a home that didn't feel 100% right for me. Throughout the process Ellen was patient, friendly and really cared about me finding exactly what I wanted. Her expert knowledge of the Reston area also helped so much in locating the areas that were right for me. I am so happy with my new home and I am so happy that Ellen was my realtor. She made the oftentimes overwhelming journey of finding a new home a pleasant one."

" My husband and I were planning a big move overseas and were anxious to rent our house to reliable renters for the best possible monthly rent. Ellen really understood the market, did her research, and found the perfect price point that had the house rented in days. Considering all of the details that we had to manage for our move, and how stressful it was, Ellen made the process of renting our house the easiest part of our process. Thank you Ellen!"
– Ali Polin
" Thanks for your patience, Ellen. I felt bad for making you show us so many homes, but you had no issue with it and wanted us to buy exactly what we wanted and not settle. You are so honest and such a great negotiator. We are so lucky to have had you looking out for our best interests. The transaction went smoothly and now we are happily in our new home! We can't thank you enough!"
– Christina and Marc
" This was my first experience buying a home, and Ellen was a joy to work with! Her professionalism and pleasant personality helped make this intimidating process an enjoyable experience. I highly valued her input, as she is very knowledgeable about this area and the real estate market. Additionally, she was very accommodating to my schedule and always kept me up-to-date on listings and offers. The whole process from start to finish went very smoothly, thanks to Ellen. I highly recommend her!"
– Renee Hadeed
" My husband and I met Ellen at one of her open houses the early half of 2012. After a 30-minute conversation, we knew she was the agent for us! What I appreciate most about Ellen is that she's genuine, honest and very patient. I can say without a doubt that we did not have to settle when it came to buying our home. Ellen found us everything we wanted and more. She went the extra mile to get us the best home for our family and I can't begin to thank her enough. Ellen truly made our home buying experience enjoyable!"
– Jamila and Chris Wanza
" Ellen was a pleasure to work with. When we met her at an open house, we knew she was someone we would feel comfortable helping us find our dream home. She constantly made herself available to look at houses whenever new homes came on the market. Throughout a long and stressful search process, she continually encouraged us not to settle and to keep looking until we found our dream home. Once we finally did, Ellen helped us navigate a tough closing when we thought on several occasions that the contract was going to fall through. In the end, Ellen went above and beyond to help us get our new home, and without her, we can honestly say we might not have gotten our dream home. Thanks Ellen!"
– Jennifer and Adam Reese
" As a first time homebuyer, I was lucky to stumble across Ellen at an open house early on in my search. Right away I could tell that she was extremely personable and knew exactly what I was looking for. Though the process of buying a house can be stressful, Ellen made me feel comfortable and explained every step along the way. And I could tell she truly had my best interest at heart. Ellen is a fantastic person who will work hard to help you find your perfect home, even in this crazy D.C. market."
– Liz Palombo
" Ellen's in depth knowledge of Reston is phenomenal. Her guidance during the selling process was perfect. I was dreading the whole sale thing, and she made it so easy! She helped me find a wonderful house, got a great price for our old one and was really there for me when I needed assurance. Thanks so much,"
– Celina McGinnis
" Ellen is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Her knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. She has a flawless personality and is extremely proactive. Ellen found the perfect suburban D.C. dream home for me. She was instrumental in allowing for a smooth and seamless transition into my new property. I have since recommended her to all of my family members and colleagues."
– Keith Rhodia
" I wanted to write and thank you, Ellen, for coming through for us in a big way! You kept saying you didn't want us to "settle" and we didn't! You used your expertise to find us a FANTASTIC home in Reston, that I know we will be happy in for many years to come! You listened to what we wanted and found exactly that! You were patient with us as we explored different areas and were always open to taking us out whenever we wanted. Of course, while all of this was going on, you were tirelessly trying to sell our home in Ashburn. You really seemed to care that we get a decent and fair price for our house and wanted the best for us. We appreciated your willingness to hold frequent Open Houses and answer all our questions at almost any time of day or night!! We apologize for any gray hairs you may have gotten during our 4 week turn around for settlement! You stayed on top of things and did everything in your power to make sure things would go through on time. Through all this, I am happy, too, that I can call you "friend", and that you continue to be there for me well after the move! Thanks a million!"
– Margie and John Yandziak
" There aren't enough words in the dictionary to describe how excellent Ellen was during our home search and buying process. Looking for a home was such an easy process with Ellen at our side. The thing we really appreciated about Ellen was her pure honesty, she didn't hold anything back. It was so apparent that she was more concerned with us being happy than just making another transaction. Ultimately, we needed to hear all of her advice. She continued to follow up even after the sale when we had questions. Others have said it and we agree that the relationship is more personal than the typical client/realtor relationship. Ellen is truly a unique gem as a realtor and person, and we are better for knowing her and conducting business with her. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Northern Virginia area."
– Harry and Stephanie Randal
" Ellen, Thank you so much for all the work you did for us when we moved. The brochures you made were fabulous and made our home look like something out of an architectural magazine! When you took us out to see houses, your first impressions were always dead on and helped us quickly find the cozy home in a great neighborhood that we were looking for. We will never hesitate to refer to you anyone we know that wants to buy or sell a home!"
– Ian and Monica Butteriss
" I cannot recommend Ellen highly enough. As a first-time home seller, I was very uncertain about how the whole selling process would play out—from the listing of the house to settlement. But Ellen allayed any fears I had. She was with me step-by-step, always setting me at ease with her professional expertise. Not only is she very knowledgeable about real estate, but she is very personable as well. These qualities—her professionalism and personality—combine to make a super real estate agent to work with!"
– Chuck and Betty John
" Ellen is very personable, knowledgeable, and immediately grasped what we were looking for. While we hesitated to take the big step, she was constantly supportive and suggested areas that might be a better fit for our lives. Her website is also a great resource and you have a sense of someone who knows her community well and wants to provide as much current information to her clients as possible."
– Priya Siriwardane
" Ellen was a great partner in helping us buy our first home. She really got to know us, listen to us and was extremely patient with us as we went thru the whole process. When the time comes, we will call Ellen again to help us go through all the craziness again — she was the calm in the storm of first time home buying!"
– Alicia and Clayton Gehring
" Working with Ellen was simply a fantastic experience from start to finish. As we started the house buying process, she really took the time to sit down and understand our family’s needs and what we were looking for. At every step of the process, Ellen was always available to answer our questions and provide advice. Particularly at a time when housing supply in our desired area was very tight, she was constantly working with others to find out which houses were going on the market and how soon we could get in to see them. I am convinced the only reason we were able to successfully find a house which met our particular needs was Ellen's diligence, market knowledge and personal attention. We highly recommend working with Ellen."
– Les and Bea Young
" As a small business owner, time is money and Ellen Moyer truly understands this concept. After putting in literally 28 contracts on different properties (with previous Realtor), we were giving up on buying a house until we met Ellen through one of our friends. She was able to immediately find the right property that met our budget and within one week we had not a house but our dream home! I couldn’t believe how fast she was able to pull everything together for us at the exact location we were interested in. She made the process very easy and very quick. I didn’t believe it until I had the keys to my home in my hand! I recommend using her for any Residential property services. She actually cares about her job and listens to her client’s needs."
– Farhad and Shereen Farahani
" Ellen was responsive and very sensitive to my set of requirements. The townhouse I eventually bought was outside my expectations and I would never have looked at it and secured such an excellent deal without her insisting that I look at it. She also helped me with a referral to a financing person, who I chose to use and also received excellent service and an excellent result from. I strongly recommend Ellen Moyer as an agent for residential real estate in this area."
– Chris Hartman
" My husband and I were so lucky to be referred to Ellen! We were moving from out of state so we really needed help to navigate the area. Ellen always offered her honest opinion and we felt like we could really trust her. For a while we were getting a little concerned that we couldn’t find anything in our price range in the right location. Ellen knew what our checklist entailed and having a short commute to work was definitely at the top of the list. With Ellen’s experience and knowledge of the area, she was able to find us a place that was much nicer then we expected but still in our price range AND a short commute! We seriously couldn’t believe it and we feel very fortunate to be here. Without Ellen, we would’ve never thought to look in the area that we did and we absolutely love it! I feel like I can’t thank Ellen enough and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone that I know!"

" I had only 5 days to find a place to live when I relocated to Northern Virginia from Richmond. I was referred to Ellen and called her on Monday, and on Tuesday she met with me and showed me 10 houses. I picked one and she made it happen, going the extra mile to make follow up phone calls to the rental company to make sure it all came together in time for my move, and keeping me informed every day of the progress. Ellen met me on Friday to sign the lease and I moved in on Saturday. Ellen made me feel like I was a top priority, and I can’t imagine how I would have done it without her. I’d recommend Ellen to anyone looking for a home to rent or buy."
