Ellen Hart
REALTOR® Associate / Marketing Strategist
I love selling farm and ranch property and always knew that this is what I was meant to do. Walking around on densely wooded land and jumping over creeks, discovering that perfect place for a camp house or a pond or a dream house is just like being a kid all over again and I get to do this every day.” Returning to Texas after 18 years, Ellen was glad to be home, close to her family, and rekindling friendships and her love of the land and nature. Her family has owned a ranch near La Grange in Fayette County for the past 20 years, a place to which she returned for frequent visits, knowing that someday she would end up in the country. When she grew up in the Memorial area of Houston, wandering the piney woods, she dreamed of being a natural science illustrator. Attending the University of Texas at Austin and majoring in biology, she illustrated several text books until she realized she’d better seek a more lucrative endeavor. Ellen pioneered the design of business cases for executive women, a concept so well received that she and her designer partner sold it to Hartmann Luggage, where she then served as Director of Sales and Marketing. Her creativity, extensive research and unique point of view led to the development of luxury goods made from baseball glove leather, for which she negotiated a licensing agreement and began a relationship with Rawlings Sporting Goods that lasted for ten years. Ellen then created the first online store for professional women, a business she sold a few years ago. She was ready for her next career move – selling farm and ranch properties. A creative, self-starting career woman whose tenacity and engaging business style is unparalleled. Her project management and organizational skills, combined with her dynamic personality,make Ellen an exceptional businesswoman and Realtor. Her talent for identifying the needs of her clients as well as the market place, her commitment to detailed research, and her ability to enthusiastically communicate her vision, insights, and the potential that others might not see are invaluable to them. Her strong negotiating skills and her ability to stay on track through closing are yet additional assets. Ellen’s core values, then and now, have always been to make each client feel like they are unique and special, by staying present, listening to their needs and making sure they walk away feeling great about their sale or purchase. Ellen lives in La Grange in Fayette County and loves being out in the country. Ellen was named top producer for her office for Q3 in 2015.

Totally Positive

We have used Ellen to both look for property and most recently, sell property in the Brenham area. She is a very professional, positive, knowledgable agent and and more importantly to me, an interesting human being. You can only talk real estate so long, we had some nice conversations over the course of our working together. She thinks outside the box and is capable of designing beautiful collateral material when selling your property. We are happy as clams our property sold, and who it sold to, and Ellen was responsible for that outcome. Thank you very much, we recommend Ellen Hart for all your real estate needs.!

The Perfect Property

Ellen helped us secure the property and opportunity of a lifetime! Not once but twice! We purchase property and loved it so much that we decided to buy additional land accross the road. We now have close to 50 acres with beautiful trees, water, deer and a business opportunity to retire on! Thank you Ellen for the resources that you provided for us. Had you not insisted on the right attorney the out come of our purchase decision would have been very different. Thanks Ellen! You are a dear friend!

Bought a home in 2016 in Frelsburg, New Ulm, TX 78950.

Ellen's help in purchasing our dream property was indispensable! She took our wants, desires and perimeters and found the perfect realty match for us. She was professional, prompt and precise through every step of the way. She weeded through the properties saving us loads of time and then walked us through property visits, negotiations, inspections, appraisals, loan referrals and finally closing without a hitch! We would highly recommend Ellen Hart to help you find your perfect home!

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2016 for approximately $300K in Schulenburg, TX.

We had a very specific property in mind and Ellen worked diligently to find it, spending many hours of her time scouring the county. She did not give up when many others may have found the task too onerous, always retaining a sense of humor. She found the perfect property for us and the sale went through without a hitch. Our experience with Ellen has been outstanding and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone requiring the services of a thoroughly professional realtor in Fayette and surrounding counties. Job well done!

I had my property for sale for a couple of years with no offers. Ellen Hart contacted me, asking if I would be interested in selling my property, as she and her husband were looking in the area for property to buy. I showed her the property and it wasn't quite what they were looking for, but, she said that if I wanted to sell it she could sell it for me. I listed it with her and the first day it was offered on the market she had 2 cash offers for the total asking price, and had a couple of other buyers that were interested.

To make a long story short, I sold my property for the full asking price for cash and closed with a couple of weeks. Ellen Hart knows how to move a property and is very skilled in your property in front of prospective buyers and getting it sold. I was very impressed with the way she got the job done and the property sold in 1 day.

I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend her for anyone if you want to sell or buy. She really knows her business.

"After looking for almost a year in the Round Top/Brenham area we met with Ellen Hart and felt immediately we had had found the realtor wanted to work with. I can state with confidence that she is not only motivated but she put our requirements above all else. She not only guided us toward potential homes but warned us about some potential problems with a few pieces of real estate. Ellen has a high degree of integrity and when we need an agent in the future, I am sure she will be the first one we call."

"When it comes to country property, skills are essential to successfully complete a transaction with the desired outcome. Ellen Hart has conquered these important skills. She is more than an advocate and adviser; she’s a contact who will feverishly seek and protect your interests. You can count on Ellen during the search, through the purchase period, and very importantly well into the post purchase time-frame when you are busy or occupied. Ellen’s success isn’t secret: She is familiar with the area, knows the people, and understand the culture. I continue to find Ellen reliably resourceful. Ellen Hart is friendly, honest, and interestingly fun. Give her a call, you won’t be disappointed."

Karen and I moved back to Central Texas several months ago and relied on Ellen for her expertise in the area. She was instrumental in helping us locate just the right property that suited all of our needs. If you want a highly skilled professional, Ellen is the agent for you!

My wife and I were referred to Ellen as we began a search for some farm property in the Round Top area. From the very start, she was a motivated advocate on our behalf and took it upon her self to visit site after site, providing us valuable feedback. Being located 100 miles away from Round Top, we became dependent upon Ellen doing the leg-work and found that her taste and judgement was very much aligned with our goals. We not only found a great property thanks to her efforts, but she consistently volunteered her time and energy to help us begin our project. Being new to the area, she helped us immensely by providing contacts for contractors who are now actively involved in the process and by exchanging ideas and experiences. We felt she went above and beyond in helping us not only during the search and eventual purchase, but afterwards as well, with some of the decisions necessary to develop the land. We consider Ellen a good friend and never make a trip to Round Top without trying to spend time with her. She continues to add valuable insight months after our land purchase and we very much appreciate her support and efforts. I highly recommend her for anyone's real estate needs.
