A top salesperson for more than 30 years, Ellen Krantz was born to be in sales, and with both parents working in the real estate industry, residential real estate was almost a given. “Being a native Houstonian with a large circle of influence has been incredibly helpful for me,” says Ellen. “I grew up in Meyerland and graduated from Bellaire High School. I am very knowledgeable about the city and personally invest in Houston real estate. I have owned homes in several different neighborhoods including Garden Oaks, Southhampton, River Oaks, The Heights, and Bellaire where I live now.
For Ellen, being a real estate professional is exciting. “I can find common ground with just about anyone,” she notes, “which is important in establishing a level of trust with your clients. I am fortunate to have built an extensive client network over the years and I have never steered them in the wrong direction. A great salesperson is not interested in only the sale. The client’s best interest always comes first and I work hard to develop trust and respect to ensure that my clients will want to work with me in the future. I am honest, sincere, dependable and detail oriented with a great follow-through.”
Prior to her career in home sales, Ellen was a top salesperson in retail clothing. She was a co-founder of Girl World Sports in 1996 and took that company to more than $2 million in sales within its first two years, generating write-ups from Houston Business Journal and Entrepreneur magazine.
Ellen is a human rights advocate who volunteers and serves on leadership councils for several organizations that support equality and respect for all individuals. She attended the University of Southern California at Los Angeles, The University of Texas at Austin, and graduated from the University of Houston Main Campus with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Leisure time for Ellen is spent with her family and traveling.
