What Our Buyers and Sellers Are Saying


There aren't enough complimentary words to say about working with Ellen, Janis and their team. We were out of state and decided it was time to sell our home. They were able to walk us through the process, clearly outline next steps and conduct market analysis all remotely. They strategically priced, staged our home and helped us determine how to choose from multiple offers to get through the sales process easily. We highly recommend them to all of our friends.


My husband and I are so excited to be part of the Ellen and Janis Real Estate family now that they have helped us buy our first home! Not only did we feel 100% taken care of and in good hands all the way through the first-time-homebuyer process, but their longstanding connections in and around Boston have made it easy to find other local businesses to do things like change locks, get an inspection, etc. In fact, it's taken us 2 months to write this review because we've been so busy doing all the exciting house things we have dreamed about. Janis made sure we didn't have to worry or stress about anything, and that includes ever having to find any other realtor team!

We have worked with Ellen and Janis twice now, both times as sellers. They are simply wonderful to work with. They are incredibly responsive and work as a seamless team. For both our sales they were flexible and understanding around issues that arose related to our young children, which sometimes complicated our plans. They also went above and beyond in making sure that our most recent sale stayed on track, including helping us manage issues with our mortgage broker and attorney and working with us to make the transaction with the buyer we really wanted to sell to work. Their advice is clear and pragmatic and they truly care about their clients. I can’t recommend them highly enough.


Ellen and Janis are the best! We couldn't have asked for better partners in the process of converting our house to condos, preparing them for sale and eventually selling them. They made us feel like we were their only clients, even though they had many at that time. They connected us to a great attorney and had recommendations for all contractors that we needed. They're good humored, know so much about the business and are excellent negotiators. I have worked with realtors in the past and those experiences can't even compare to the expertise that Ellen and Janis bring to their work. I will recommend them to anyone who will listen!


We are repeat clients of the Ellen and Janis Real Estate team and have nothing but great things to say. They are thorough, professional, direct and of course great negotiators. We have and will continue to recommend them as top-notch agents in the Boston area.


I had a rather dire situation. We had been working with a different realtor for months, there was a lack of professionalism and absolutely no results. It was to the point where my best friend (of whom we were trying to get an apartment with) had only seven more days before her lease ended. We were beyond stressed and anxious. I had reached out on a queer Facebook platform to see if anyone had any idea where to look since we just couldn't work with our previous realtor anymore. Logan Jacobs reached out to me. They said that they knew we might be hesitant to work with another realtor, but if we were to open to work with them, they would be happy to help. After a day or two of no results without them, we agreed. Right away Logan went to work! Sending links, calling places, and much more. In about two days they had us submitting an application and helped us get together our cosigner documents. The timeline was incredible. They reached out on Wednesday, we started working with them on either Friday or Saturday, and today (Tuesday) we have officially signed the lease!! Logan Jacobs has been incredibly professional, has responded promptly, and has been an absolute joy to work with. I'm not really one to give recommendations, but their contact information is one I'd happily share. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel toward this person, and there is no one I'd rather work with in the future than Logan Jacobs of Ellen + Janis Team.


Janis has been wonderful since the beginning of our home search. We love her proactive approach and realistic guidance for navigating a very competitive market. Once we started looking in earnest, she helped us find a home and get an offer accepted within three weeks - which was so good because we had a tight timeline!I recommend Ellen + Janis team 100%. They also had really great recommendations for mortgage company and attorney, making everything easy for us.

Having recently gone through the gauntlet of simultaneously prepping, staging, and selling an apartment and buying a house my wife and I are glad to have worked with Ellen and Janis Real Estate Team. Navigating the waters of the current real estate market in Boston, pandemic aside, seems like a heavy lift under normal circumstances but Ellen, Janis, Logan and their team gave us the reality of the situation on the ground and steered us safely away from certain doom. If you’re feeling so bold as to jump into the torrent of Boston real estate you can’t go wrong with this crew. We’re happy customers!


It was genuinely a pleasure to work with Janis Lippman and Ellen Grubert and the Ellen and Janis Real Estate Team. They helped us as first time home buyers in 2008, and, our experience was so positive, it only made sense to work with them again in 2021 as we sold our home and relocated out of state. Proactive, attentive and detailed, Ellen and Janis are a super duo: they understand the market, they are very well connected, and they come with an excellent reputation in the community and beyond. It doesn't hurt that they are warm-hearted, good people who really care for their clients. Our home sold for well above asking price, and Janis and Ellen (and team) made the whole process remarkably smooth and painless. We 100% would work with them again, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone buying/selling in the Boston area.


We just bought a house in JP, and Janis was an excellent guide through this process. We had a rather complicated experience and I am not a relaxed house hunter, so I really appreciated how willing Janis was to talk me through plans and logistics and just help me emotionally deal with the ups and downs of the whole thing. Janis and Ellen were both readily available and a great resource for us.
