I'm ready to advocate for you, every step of the way. I act as your guardian, shielding you from the unexpected pitfalls that could occur. I'm your counselor, advising you with informed opinions to help you make the best choices.I'm also your strategist, working with you to determine the right plan for your family.
During the many years I’ve known and worked with Ellen, she has served as a real estate professional with superlative dedication, enthusiasm and integrity. She understands the market. Not only is she very responsible and incredibly creative in her ability to attract buyers and sellers, most importantly, she’s honest. Many real estate brokers and agents will waste their clients’ time by telling them what they want to hear, raising unrealistic expectations. Consequently, their listings sit idle for weeks or months or longer. Ellen won’t waste your time. She’ll do what it takes to get you the best possible price. That’s why she's one of the top real estate professionals in this area. Her reputation speaks for itself. Talk to her. You won’t be disappointed.

Ellen has a truly unique and special ability to bond with people. She gets to know you and then counsels and guides you based on your needs and interests. We've worked together twice now and both times she took the time to understand my situation and offer advice based on my emotional, financial and personal needs. She is absolutely amazing at pointing out pros and cons and guiding me in making decisions. She is also a great sounding-board. I completely trust Ellen and will recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Ellen was our first smiling and positive face that we met being new to Louisville 15 years ago! We were coming from New Jersey and Louisville was going to be our 8th home in 12 years from all over the east coast - 5 different states. We were (still are) very picky!!!! Ellen knew exactly where to hone in our home shopping and even though it took us many weekends to find our perfect home, she exuded professionalism, fabulous negotiating expertise and made home buying FUN! She’s hilarious! We have lived in Louisville (same home) for 15 years! I love our home, our neighborhood and area that we live in! Thank you Ellen! Ellen is our realtor and forever friend! ??
Ellen is just different... in the best of ways! Different in the care she brings to the table, different in how she keeps us engaged, different in how she serves through a combination of caring, advising, supporting and serving. I've already recommended Ellen to people I know and am happy to recommend her to you! She goes way beyond real estate in how she shows up!
We had such a wonderful experience working with Ellen. While we were new to the Louisville area, we relied on Ellen to help us find a home that would best suit our needs and in the right location.. Ellen would give us her honest opinion of the pros and cons to each house that we looked at, that helped us so much. With all her wisdom and experience in real estate she was able to recommend professionals in different areas of expertise that we might need during or after the buying process. She began as our realtor and ended as our friend. We had total confidence in her because of her honesty and great work ethic.
Ellen is the best.When we sell our she is the one we will use Joe
Ellen is the ideal realtor--knowledgeable, easy to work with, and well-connected in the industry. My husband and I have used her services to purchase and sell homes, so we know about her diligence on both sides of transactions. She works tirelessly to get the absolute best for her clients. (Including, in our case, a very early morning visit to sniff out a shower smell the morning of the closing). She is a consummate professional.
I've worked with Ellen for 20 years through 8 transactions (4 buy, 4 sell). She is a complete professional. She knows the market. She pays attention to detail. She will not waste your time with properties that don't fit your requirements because that's also a waste of HER time. Most importantly, in my opinion, is that while she's as tenacious as they come, she is also as honest as they come. I'm sure there are a lot of really good realtors out there. Ellen just happens to be one.
I highly recommend Ellen, she is the best .. she has helped with our home needs and she clearly understand the needs of her clients and finds the right approach to get things done .
If you are reading this, you genuinely care about who you trust to either buy or sell your home. I have used Ellen personally, more than once, and have referred her to many friends as well. Ellen has more than 25 years of experience in this business which is extremely important to help you navigate through the process. She goes above and beyond and is exceptionally responsive to all calls, texts and emails. Issues beyond your control may sometimes arrive. If this happens, it is comforting to know that Ellen has dealt with just about everything.
I can assure you that after your first meeting with her you will feel confident knowing that Ellen is the one to get the job done with your best interests in mind.
Ellen is one of the best realtors you will ever find. She goes above and beyond to help her clients. When we were moving to Louisville, Ellen would spend hours showing me houses, even driving me to the airport!
She is extremely knowledgeable about the area with tips on the best restaurants and businesses. She was always available and happy to help us after we moved into our home with any questions we had or recommendations for contractors, etc. I know I can always call her with questions and she'll be there for me even after 20 years!
I have known Ellen for nearly 20 years, and through now three transactions. She's absolutely a delight to work with. To say thorough, an understatement. To say advocate, an understatement. To say diplomatic yet tenacious, another understatement. She's a true professional; ethical, informative, persistent, poised, and absolutely knows her craft. I highly recommend Ellen to anyone, and primarily those busy professionals, who don't have time to manage the process, and to those less experienced in real estate transactions. She expertly navigates these waters, and educates her clients. And becomes a friend in the end.
Managers
Love these ladies! Look forward to being back in Louisville to find my new home. I know they will take the best care of me.
Ellen goes above and beyond to help with your home purchase. It was, without a doubt, the best home buying experience that we have ever had. Not only is she super supportive and informative during the entire process, but she continues to provide useful information and help with whatever you need even after closing. My husband and I both feel very grateful that we ended up finding her when we were making our out-of-state move. I could not recommend her more!

When my husband and I were looking for a home in Louisville, we noticed a home on the internet. We booked a showing, and that’s when we met Ellen Shaikun. We really liked her right away. She knew the area, the real estate business, and had a great attitude and sense of humor. She took us around various neighborhoods in Louisville. And within a few days, we purchased the first house we saw. Ellen walked us through the process, connected us with contractors and other handy people. We moved into the house about a month later and started our new jobs at U of L. I couldn’t ask for better service. Since that time, Ellen has kept in touch, and I would definitely work with her again, and I recommend that you do, too.
Ellen helped us sell our house and buy a new one all being very professional and knowledgeable. When it came time for us to need someone for remodeling she also was very helpful on getting us names of contractors. All and all I would give her 5 stars and recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

I feel extremely fortunate to have Ellen Shaikun as my realtor. Her integrity is apparent in every phase of the buying process. She has assessed our needs and requests for our property search and has screened available homes to present only those that fit our criteria. She has provided helpful advice regarding property issues that we may have missed. She has worked within our time constraints and has demonstrated to us that her goal is to help us find the absolute best property for us. Ellen has become our family realtor and is currently helping my daughter find a new home. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family.




Ellen will be with you on every step of your journey. She is honest and straightforward. It is apparent she has a passion for helping others! Thanks Ellen!
There isn’t enough room in this recommendation body to share all the great things about Ellen. She will go to bat for you on every single thing and take care of you in the best way possible. I could not recommend her highly enough.
But the help and care doesn’t just start and stop with real estate. She is your forever aide and confidant in so many matters. As she puts it youre in “the family.” Stop your real estate searching and find Ellen!!
Ellen was very patient with me and my husband as we searched for our very first home. She was candid with us regarding our expectations and helped guide us through our home-buying journey. It truly felt like we were working with a trusted family member, and she continues to show her appreciation years after our home purchase. While we are very happy in our home, I almost wish we weren't so we could go on another adventure with Ellen!

In 2018 my daughter used Miss Ellen Shaikun as her realtor when she decided to purchase her home. She had such rave reviews about her experiences with Miss Ellen. Couple of months later I contacted Miss Ellen to be my realtor when I decided to purchase my home. We looked at many homes, some of which I thought were great but she was able to point out the many down sides. She assured me that she wouldn’t recommend anything that she herself wouldn’t buy. At one point I thought that she might get upset with me because she was showing us so many homes and I was not able to make a decision. With a smile on her face she keep assuring my family that we will continue looking until we find just what we were looking for. Within a few weeks we got our ideal home. I would not hesitate to recommend Miss Ellen to anyone so desirous of her services. Another quality I admire about her is that she doesn’t just sell you a house and forget about you. She continually keeps in touch with you letting you know about the latest in the real estate business and giving tips on different ideas on ways you can make your home comfortable and increase its value. In using the services of this wonderful and caring realtor, you will be having A FRIEND FOR LIFE.
Can't imagine trusting anyone else as our real estate agent. When my husband and I were preparing to move to Louisville, we actually interviewed multiple agents who'd been recommended to us by family and friends. We clicked with Ellen right away, and she shepherded us through a pretty stressful summer of house hunting in a seller's market. We are hopefully in our "forever home" now, but have continued to seek Ellen's counsel when making decisions about our house. And of course we recommend her to our friends and family every chance we get.

Ellen Shaikun has provided us with excellent real estate service for over 20 years! She has the utmost ethical character along with a caring, warm
personality. She has provided us with useful information regularly over the years. Ellen is a very knowledgeable and dedicated realtor.
Ellen was amazing! She was hard working, very accommodating to my schedule, always responded quickly to my texts, and very knowledgeable. I was a first-time home buyer, and she was very patient and thorough with me through the entire process! She had also found a house for my parents, and sold my grandmother's house in the past, so she already came highly recommended to me. I can't think of enough good things to say about her, and I wouldn't use anyone else!
Ellen Shaikun is absolutely the best for buying and selling you the home of your dreams. She will tell you the truth, even thought you may not want to hear it. She is level headed and thorough and always working in your best interests. There is none best in the Louisville market than Ellen Shaikun.
