About Ellen

Realtor/Buyers’ Agent

Ellen joined Magnolia Realty LLC in March 2009 as a residential home specialist. She has held a real estate salesperson license since the early 1980’s.  She is “your friend in real estate in Auburn, Opelika, and Lee County, AL” and her goal is to provide you with a real estate experience that will exceed your expectations. She offers discreet and attentive service to both buyers and sellers.

Ellen and her husband, Bill, moved to Auburn in late October, 2007. However, she has spent a lot of time in the area visiting relatives and watching Auburn football and basketball since she and Bill lived here in 1968-69.  Bill and both their children are Auburn graduates. Ellen is a graduate of Auburn at Montgomery and the University of Alabama.  Ellen has worked as a business teacher and a librarian along with her real estate work.  

Ellen is involved in the Opelika-Auburn Newcomers Club.  She is Past-President having served from June 2008-June 2010.  She welcomes the opportunity to introduce anyone to the area and to help you feel at home here and to love it as much as she does.  Ellen is also a member of the Campus Club, The Auburn Chamber of Commerce, the Energizers and Auburn First Baptist Church.  She attends the Pilgrims’ Sunday School Class and is the E-mail coordinator for the group.  
Some of her interests include gardening, painting, reading, FaceBook, and most importantly of all being a grandmother.
