Ellen is truly the best of the best. She is passionate, experienced, driven, patient, Harding working and also just plain adorable. She had walked through every step with us through every up and down. She takes the time to teach you so you aren't blindly going through the process. She makes time for you whenever you need her and never makes you feel like a burden. She truly cares about the well-being of every client she has. We are so thankful for the opportunity we had to work with her and would recommend her to everyone!
Ellen has been my realtor for many real estate transactions over the last 8 years. She is the only realtor I use and I recommend her to all of my friends and family without hesitation. She is not only extremely knowledgeable of the area and market, but she is honest and hard working, and always has the best interest of her customers in mind. She has gone to bat for me many times and has saved me many thousands of dollars over the course of our relationship. I would not trust anyone else with either end of my real estate transactions. Thank you Ellen!!!
Thank you Ellen, for finding us the house we were looking for she did not waste our time by visiting homes that did not fit our criteria, and then to top it off.... when we unexpectedly had to move two years later was able to get a full price offer within the first 3 days on the market! Our closing was perfect and not a single issue!

Ellen is the best! Honestly, I can't say enough good things about her. She has now helped me close 4 deals successfully. She is very honest and transparent about all aspects of the deal and gives great advice as she knows all areas of Kentucky Real Estate law. On top of that, she is just a fabulous individual with a great sense of humor and an awesome person to have on your side while you make a large house purchase. I strongly recommend Ellen for any real estate needs.
My husband Paul and I have worked with Ellen for several years, through sales and purchases of homes, and one build. Ellen was always there for us when we needed her, always answering her phone or calling right back if she was with a client. She recently sold our house for us while we were purchasing a home out of state. Since we were selling our house and purchasing one at the same time, she handled every detail for us if we could not be there to do it. We knew that when it came time to close, everything would be done, even through the challenging time of Covid. One of my regrets of moving to Florida is that Ellen is not here. If you want a true professional who knows every aspect of the real estate business, then Ellen is the person for you.

Ellen Shaikun served as the realtor in my sale of a condo as executor of the estate of a dear friend. We began the sale just as the Covid-19 virus struck. We were both passing through uncharted territory as we navigated our way through the showings, contract offerings and the signing of a contract. Throughout it all, Ellen remained calm and confronted every issue that came along, keeping me carefully informed throughout the entire ordeal.

Obstacles that were a result of social distancing, virtual signings, and the activities of an awkward buyer were resolved quickly and professionally. Her knowledge of the real estate market and her contacts in the community of lenders, real-estate attorneys, and other realtors kept the sale on track. I honestly don’t think we would have made it without her perseverance, expertise, and stick-to-it attitude. I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor, and would certainly go to her first should I ever need a realtor again. Thank you Ellen!

Having worked with several Agents in the past I had decided most were only qualified to be tour guides. They run you all over town hoping that you will finally find the desired house.
Ellen is different, she asked lots of questions to learn exactly what you want and only shows you houses that meet or exceed your exceptions. Ellen has sold houses for us, found the perfect new one for us and also worked miracles to secure a 40 acre tract for us that we were told there was no chance we would own the land.
Ellen is amazing and the even better part is everyone working with is is also truly
helpful and highly professional.

Ellen’s patience, honesty, and knowledge separate her from the rest.

My wife and I learned so much from her along our house-buying journey, but more importantly she was always there for us. Yes that sounds cliche, but throughout all hours of the day - she was in constant contact with us - explaining various situational circumstances, in a way that we could understand.

She may have several clients, but she TRULY made us feel like we were her only ones. Because she was so phenomenal, we would recommend her to anyone. If you want the best, Ellen is the realtor that will be there for you.
Ellen did such a good job for us. She found our dream home. She is intelligent and hard working, she is straight forward, respectful and candid. She listens to what you say and dont say to help guide you on your home search. Thanks so much Ellen.
Let me just start by saying Ellen is amazing! Being first time home buyers, we knew very little about the home buying process. Ellen helped us every step of the way, and always had our back. She’s knowledgeable of the market, honest, and extremely responsive. She will drop whatever she is doing to help you!
I have worked with Ellen 3 times. She has helped us sell two homes and buy one. She is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. She encouraged us to do what we needed to do to get top dollar for our homes and was very frank and honest, helping us to feel certain we weren't leaving money on the table. She also gets things done when she says she will get things done, which is refreshing. She is genuinely aware of the stress that can accompany buying/selling real estate so she always has a kind approach when working with her clients. With that said, she will be firm and tough on her client's behalf when necessary to keep things moving and to reach the end goal together. I highly recommend Ellen to everyone.

Working with Ellen has been wonderful during our home search. We always felt safe going into homes, knowing the surfaces had been sanitized.  We could count on Ellen to be standing at the door with her mask on and little baggies of wipes, booties, and gloves. We are excited to move into our new home soon, thanks to Ellen's support! We highly recommend her to anyone thinking about selling or purchasing a home!
Ellen Shaikun did an outstanding job helping me sell my house and buying another. She was very knowledgeable about my area and the current housing market. Ellen was friendly, polite, considerate and thoroughly professional. She answered all my questions, kept me updated and gave me clear guidance about things I needed to do to prepare my house for sale. Selling your home and buying another can be a stressful time, but Ellen eased my worries and greatly reduced any stresses. I highly recommend Ellen Shaikun to anyone looking for the services of a really competent real estate agent.

This sale had some very unusual aspects of the deal. Ellen worked with the other agent and family members to bring it all together. I have worked with Ellen before and as always her attention to detail is alway spot on

I was delighted with Ellen's service as the selling agent for our home. She was enthusiastic and full of great ideas for marketing the property. She connected us with great stagers, photographers and videographers, and she was very helpful in developing and promoting our listing, both online and through her relationships with other agents. She worked tirelessly on our behalf and gave us great advice through some difficult negotiations, and she even connected us with some terrific contractors to make the repairs requested by our purchasers. Ellen's experience and expertise were both evident and crucial to our successful result of a sale within only 35 days! Then, she guided us through the final negotiations and closing process until all of the relevant documents had been signed and filed of record. Her knowledge and unflagging enthusiasm made what could have been a difficult process seem easy. I was very impressed and therefore recommend her highly to anyone seeking an agent. She was outstanding!

She is extremely flexible I. Her schedule and goes the extra mile to give you options. She is concise and on point with everything you need. Make no mistake, Ellen gained my highest recommendation. A true professional.
Self employed
I owe Ellen a lot. She was able to close on my house even though at times it looked impossible to do. She never gave up and was very helpful with everything I needed. She was prompt to respond to my calls or texts and she was very confident she would get the job done, therefore making me feel calm. Thank you Ellen
Domestic Director
If you are looking for a realtor who's primary goal is to make the selling of your home as stress free as possible, Ellen Shaikun is the realtor for you!
We were being relocated to another state due to my husbands' work. Cartus, the relocaton company, has many rules... About 36 pages worth! Ellen was already certified and an approved Cartus relocation specialist which was one less huge thing I had to concern myself with.
In the rare occasion Ellen could not answer a question, she would find the answer and get back with me promptly. Anytime I would email, text or leave a voicemail for her, I would always get a response ...even if the response was "I'm with a client and will get back with you shortly". She never left me hanging. Most importantly, to me, was Ellen's calm approach to whatever issue arose. There was never any drama, ever!
Ellen is one of the most professional, honest and knowledgable realtors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. If you ever have a need for an excellent realtor, look no further than Ellen Shaikun.

Ellen has the know how of closing a sale. Any agent can put a house on the market, but that's just the beginning. Following through with the sale is what I think Ellen is a master. We were pleased with her services.
I could not ask for a better advocate in my real estate transactions than Ellen. She is honest, caring, extremely knowledgeable, and tremendously devoted to attaining the best possible outcome for her clients. There is no one I would trust more to represent my interest when buying real estate.
We could not be more pleased with Ellen's service in the sale of my mother's house. She is energetic, insightful, resourceful and always sensitive. She knows her markets and how to optimize the value of your home. She listens to people carefully and, when discussions between buyers and sellers seem to go sideways, she skillfully keeps her client's interest in focus and brings the parties back to center. I would be very surprised if anybody experienced "Buyer's Remorse" or "Seller's Remorse" when they had Ellen in their camp.

If you are looking for a realtor knowledgeable about Louisville and the many areas surrounding Louisville, call Ellen Shaikun. One year ago I retired and wanted to move to Louisville from Michigan. I checked out Realtor.com and Zillow.com and looked at homes on-line. I finally sent a notice to realtors with a list of homes I wanted to see. I had several realtors call me and I spoke with each one on the phone. Ultimately, I picked Ellen. BEST choice I could have made. Ellen was wonderful. She worked around my schedule because I was still living in Michigan. Ellen made great recommendations and she told me, many times, that the house I was touring and considering was NOT THE ONE for me. She was ALWAYS right. She is a true professional and is always looking out for her client. She is not in a hurry to sell you a home, she wants you to pick the right home. When I was down and tired of looking she kept her head up and guaranteed me that we would find a home. Again, she was right. I found the perfect place--in my chosen area--that matched exactly what I was looking for. She was always looking out for what I wanted and where I wanted to be. I would recommend Ellen to anyone who is considering moving to Louisville.

Ellen has been our agent for many years in Kentucky and helped us when we moved out of state and back. She has always been professional and has worked endlessly to help us find just the right house. Her determination and knowledge of the house buying/selling process has been invaluable. She has become a good friend and we know she will always be there when needed. We can't thank her all she has done for us. We always look forward to seeing her. We would never think of using another agent, we just wouldn't move! She has been there for us on every issue that comes up and has found us the right home.
