About

Finding a person that will work hard in today's world is like finding a needle in a haystack. Ellen has been told time again that she is the hardest working agent in Real Estate, and she has had to break down barriers to prove that she isn't just another "agent" sticking a sign in the ground in hopes that another agent will bring a buyer. When moving to St. George, UT from San Diego, CA, Ellen was told she would have difficulty in becoming successful in such a small town where everybody knows one another. One thing you don't tell Ellen is that she can't do something because that's when she will become determined not just to do it, but to do it well. Ellen's accomplishments are from giving 100% in everything she does. Never having played golf, Ellen was able to go from a 36 handicap to a 16 in one year then down to a 9 handicap before getting into real estate. She started playing tennis and was beaten by two older ladies, her husband said, "take two weeks off and then quit". Not being a quitter, she rose to the challenge and was playing at a 4.0 until she had to have rotator cuff surgery. Her love of sports has taken her to Pickle Ball where she continues to win medals, taking Silver in the Huntsman Senior Games in 2014. Real estate has been no different, Ellen has been in the top 1% in sales since starting her business in 2001 and now is the Principal Broker of the very prestigious company, Engel & Volkers St. George. Her husband, Doug Klein, is also in the real estate business focusing on his commercial investments. Ellen's son Ryan, was born in 1995 and loves to play his guitar, golf and make his mom proud. Ellen's credentials speak for themselves as "awards" are not an important part of her life. Ellen loves to give back to her community and to those around her that are in need. Making a difference to those in need is the greatest "award" for her. Ellen is known as a "Tenacious Negotiator," which is to say the Real Estate business is absolutely not for the timid or the fainthearted. No two houses are identical, so if you see the home you and your partner are ready to purchase, hesitation and procrastination are not an option. It's rumored that, when eating her lunch, Ellen has a fork in one hand and her iPhone in the other; point being no e-mail, text, or phone call goes unread or unanswered. Real Estate is a "People Business" so unless you really enjoy talking in person with dozens of people every day, this is not the career for you. When Ellen started her career, the attraction wasn't "money" per se, it was the thought of recreating the energy she had initially enjoyed in advertising. She really enjoyed meeting new people, creating ads, and talking to people on the phone or in person. Ellen discovered that she had a natural predilection for working with people on such a close basis, that's why real estate was such an easy transition. We're not always lucky enough in life to find the perfect career that complements and enhances our personality and character, but there is truly no career that Ellen could have embraced that would have utilized all of her skills and talents she has been blessed with. I feel strongly that I owe my success as an Advisor to the clients, past and present, who trust me and have confidence that I will protect their interests. Choosing an advisor to represent you is one of the most important financial decisions you can make. Call or email me for information on real estate in the St. George area.
