Ellen Painter (she/her)

Ellen is a Richmond native and graduate of Hermitage High School and Old Dominion University. Returning to the area in 2015, she found that RVA was much “cooler” than she remembered (and has since been trying to find a better adjective to describe it). The proximity to the beach, the mountains (read, wineries) and professional sports in Washington D.C. are just a few reasons why Ellen is such a fan and advocate for the growth of Richmond and the metro-area. One of her favorite parts about being a Realtor is really getting to know and learn about the interests of her out-of-area clients and introducing them to the diverse and wide-ranging neighborhoods around town. Ellen now lives in Chesterfield with her husband, two step-kids and two doodles and can be found running (literally) around and trying new restaurants on the weekends!

What Our Clients Love About Ellen

Ellen was wonderful to work with. As a first time homebuyer, I had no idea what to expect, and Ellen helped me navigate all the bumps in the road through the entire process. She was always available and always made us feel like her top priority, even when it was a small question or issue. She always got the information we needed very promptly. I will definitely use her again in the future!

Ellen was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and she played a huge role in helping us acquire our dream home. She provided solid advice at every step in the home buying process, while being personable and communicative at all times. I would recommend her services to anyone who is home shopping.
