I think you’ll like my honest no nonsense, and empathetic attitude, and my years of business negotiation experience.
I'm an agent at Prime Real Estate Group, where I specialize in working with great people from “away” ready to make a lifestyle change, first time home buyers, as well as with local-area sellers and buyers. I am a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and subscribe to its strict Code of Ethics.
I can give you up to date about the local market conditions, whether you are buying or selling, just curious, and just looking.
My previous career was in small businesses in Seattle , in manufacturing, and in marketing,. In 1984, I founded, and for over a decade, successfully ran a souvenir company ELPHA. Concurrently I worked in Real Estate, doing apartment management. Later, I worked in manufacturing, doing cost estimation and contract negotiation. These experiences gave me the foundation for strong negotiation skills and relationship building. While I loved my work, I spent what seemed like a lot of time commuting. After some summertime traveling, I recognized Idaho as my next adventure.I moved, tutored math and science, then worked for a few years the Coeur d ' Alene school district teaching computer technology.
Today, I love my North Idaho life —and being a Realtor®. I traded funky Fremont for tall fir trees, in this place that feels like home. I love Idaho! I live i just outside of Coeur d' Alene , where I am excited and grateful to be involved in community service. I love playing music, and have enjoyed playing at the community Thanksgiving meal for the last 3 years.
All the Best, Ella Ellinghausen
