Stephanie Ellison
Re/max Right Choice
About Stephanie

While studying economics and finance in college, I took a real estate course and my love affair with the industry started. When my professor asked me to join her firm in 1984, I jumped at the opportunity – even though she warned me that I had to be prepared for making little or no money my first year in business. She was right, but by adhering to a Client-First Philosophy, I am proud to say that I have been able to help over 2500 individuals and families with their real estate needs. To best serve my clients, I need to be out getting my listings sold, finding my buyers the right home in the Milford CT area, and negotiating contracts. However, in this complex world there are many other details that need to be accomplished in order to have a successful real estate transaction – frankly, too many for one person. With this in mind, I have an administrative staff to, among other things, make sure all paperwork is processed correctly, coordinate with the photographer, submit listings to all websites and our two Boards of Realtors for inclusion on their Multiple Listing Services, have For Sale signs put up in timely fashion, coordinate with our client’s attorney and lender, manage internet presence and marketing campaigns, and make sure all contingencies are met. I also have four others on my staff. One is my husband, Dave, who is my business partner. His financial background and analytical approach to things give him a unique ability to assist our clients in making informed financial decisions. The other three are Lisa, Vera, and Chris who specialize in helping our buyers find just the right home. Our team is built to stay on top of market conditions, inventory and all aspects of the transaction, while providing exceptional customer service. My goal is to give my clients an experience they couldn’t find elsewhere, and I would be honored if you were to choose me and my team to become your trusted real estate advisor for the Milford CT area. Since 1990, no one has sold more Milford, CT homes, and I look forward to putting my experience to work for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?
Top real estate agents have more local expertise, prepare in-depth market analyses, and have industry connections that you can’t find by yourself. They know your neighborhood like the back of their hand and use their market knowledge to sell your home faster than the average agent and for money.
Read more
What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Derby?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Derby?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Derby, CT.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Derby?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Derby?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
