What Our Buyers and Sellers Are Saying


I had a great experience with Ellen and Janis. They work together as a team and I found this to be really seamless, I didn't experience any internal communication glitches. This speaks to the quality of their communication both with each other and in general. I found them easy to communicate with over a variety of topics pertaining to the sale of my condo. When I had questions about the list price they recommended, Janis spoke with me in-depth on the topic, giving me resources to reference, while also validating my viewpoint. When it came time to deal with offers and the navigating requests of the buyers, Ellen was very helpful. My situation had an extra wrinkle in that my condo association had many concerns come up throughout the sale, which made things less smooth and straightforward than they otherwise might have been. Janis and Ellen were very patient, respectful, and offered helpful guidance to me as we navigated those issues. Overall, I was very glad to have them on my team. I think they are great realtors and I would definitely recommend them."


We recently had the opportunity to work with Ellen and Janis real estate team as they worked with us to sell our home. They were so helpful and knowledgeable and efficient that it was a joy to work with them. We had been living in the same home for 58 years and they managed our move in a way that was as special as they were. They put the house on the market at a very auspicious time as it was immediately sold on the first day of our open house. I recommend them to anyone who's interested in working with two outstanding realtors.

When we first started thinking about moving, Ellen and Janis were the first people we called. They helped us buy and sell our previous homes, so we knew they would set the right strategy for selling our home in the current market. We were ready to go on the market just as Covid-19 was hitting Boston, so we had to pause for a few weeks. During that time, we worked with Ellen and Janis to develop a showing plan that would ensure the safety of not only our family but prospective buyers viewing our home. They managed the process meticulously. We had multiple offers that surpassed our asking price and we were under agreement within days of going on the market. Ellen and Janis are truly the best in the business. They always provide an honest perspective and protect their clients. I recommend them to others every chance I get.

Working with Janis was an excellent experience! She was kind and informative from our first meeting where she outlined the home buying process all the way through helping us find our favorite home and close amidst the Coronavirus confusion of 2020. Every step of the process was smooth, communication was always excellent and the entire team made it a breeze. We really appreciated everybody's hard work on our behalf and can't wait to see what the next few years in our new home will bring! We would highly recommend working with Janis and team and if we do move in the future we will definitely be coming back.


My husband and I could not be happier with our association with Janis and Ellen. We dealt with selling our home and moving right in the middle of the pandemic...March, April and May. We could not have dealt with a better team. They were thoughtful, professional, communicative and very responsive to our needs. We sold, closed and moved during this time and could not be happier with their performance. Thank you Janis and Ellen!!!

We first met Ellen and Janis at an open house in 2011 when we were first time home buyers. We knew immediately that they were the realtors we needed to work with. They have been our realtors through the purchase of three homes and the sale of two. They’ve given us great staging ideas to get our home ready for sale and had great advice when it came time to put an offer in on a home. We cannot say enough good things about Ellen and Janis!

Jane and Peter

Thanks for all your hard work! That was a tough one. You were one of our first contacts when we moved to the US and have walked with us through these past crazy 16 years - 3 houses, 3 presidents, 8 puppies, a recession, and a pandemic. You have been great real estate agents and have helped make our new country our home. We can’t believe it is done now after a lot of breath holding. Stay safe and thanks a million (or 899,000)!

James and Ivy

Ellen, Janis, and their team are consummate professionals. We have worked with them to purchase two properties and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are extremely responsive, attuned to the ups and downs of the purchasing process, and are always on top of every detail. We fully recommend the Ellen and Janis Real Estate Team!

Kara and David

Thank you for your incredible guidance, support and professional counsel. We are absolutely in love with our new space, and catch ourselves dreaming about all the wonderful, happy occasions we will get to celebrate while we live here. We could not imagine better guides throughout this process. Thank you both.


We bought our condo in 2012 and Janis Lippman and Ellen Grubert, were the agents who represented the seller. We thought they were so terrific we used them to help us sell the condo seven years later. They know the market, and what needs to be done to get a house sold. Their team was on top of the paperwork, and it made selling the house an enjoyable process.
