We used Ellissa Bowen to sell our home in Forest, Virginia last year and she was outstanding.

Before choosing a real estate agent, we talked with a number of other who were familiar with Ellissa’s work. Based on the conversations and research, we concluded that Ellissa was the best choice based on the investment she was willing to make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how she was committed to work and promote our home.

We spoke with Ellissa and then met with her at our home. She spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info on comps in the area. We were somewhat concerned that our house, in a slow market saturated with similar homes would be tough to sell. Ellissa made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like having a pro come and give us staging tips, having lots photographs taken, and a lot more.

When we saw our listing we were blown away. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The third buyer that saw the property put in an offer.

Our house went under contract within 30 days after we put it on the market at less than 3% under asking price. We accepted and Ellissa walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience.

I would recommend Ellissa Bowen to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She's a true professional, genuinely nice, and extremely hard working. I realize it won't always be this easy for everyone to sell their home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.

I came upon Ellissa's name through a general listing. I didn't have a buyer's agent at the time and she agreed to assist me in my search. We scheduled a meeting soon thereafter and I could tell right away that she has a keen insight and knowledge of our local real estate market. But a buyer needs more than just a listings expert. A buyer also needs a partner and advocate who is genuinely concerned about making sure the client finds the perfect place. I was fortunate to find all of those things for me with Ellissa Bowen. With her help and expertise I was able to close on a great property in Dec. 2015. I would definitely seek her out again if I ever sell and/or I want to look for a second property.

I started working with Ellissa Bowen at the end of October 2014 to find a home in the Central Virginia area. By December 5th, I had closed on a single family home I had always envisioned myself living in. Ellissa was very instrumental in this and sent me listings on a regular basis. She then took me around to numerous properties on several occasions once I had narrowed down my choices. Since I was relocating from NC, she even drove by a lot of the properties before I got there to check on the location and exteriors of the homes. When I finally found my home, she was extremely instrumental in negotiating repairs and followed up with me every step of the way. I would highly recommend Ellissa Bowen. She also has a great personality, and very easy to get along with

It is so easy to work with Ellissa and made finding our first home a breeze. She makes notes of what you're looking in for a house and gives you a selection of houses that she feels best fits you or has the potential. Whenever my husband or I had a question, she was very responsive and answered our question the day of or early the next day. She is also very flexible in working with you. My husband and I work during the weekdays and she accommodated meeting us right after work. She is very knowledgeable of the Lynchburg and surrounding areas. We looked in places in Forest to areas in Appomattox. Any concerns you have, she addresses them promptly. I highly recommend her.

I have been wanting to buy a piece of commercial property but couldn't find much information on line. I contacted Ellissa and she immediately sent me lots of information on properties for sale. She also gave me several numbers of people to call that could help me with the financing. I loved how she made me feel like she really cared about my success on finding the right location. She was very prompt and professional. I would highly recommend her, you won't be sorry
