"I cannot express enough how thrilled and excited we are to have Stephanie Ellis as part of our HPW Family here at the Clayton Office," said Teresa Blasi sales manager and broker-in-charge of the Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Clayton Office. "Stephanie is an amazing agent and we are so blessed to have her continue the journey of building our footprint in the Johnston County Market!"
Upon meeting the Clayton team, Ellis was ready to join in on the fun and become a part of the HPW family. "I am excited to join the Clayton Office because I love the people that work there and the opportunity to rejoin the office in the Flowers Plantation area," said Ellis.
Ellis obtained her real estate broker license in 2015 and has loved it ever since. One of her favorite parts of her jobs is meeting and getting to know people on a personal level. "I love to see buyers reactions when they finally walk into their new home," said Ellis.
Born and raised in Raleigh, Ellis is a native North Carolinian. Currently, she lives in Benson, NC, and loves the small town feel. "I love living in Benson because it is peaceful and quiet but still close to civilization," said Ellis.
Ellis' favorite hobbies include scrapbooking, reading, cooking, playing softball and volleyball. She is also involved with giving back to our community and helping to make a difference. "I give 5% of all my commission for one year to the Ronald McDonald House because of the support they gave my family during a very hard time in our lives," said Ellis. "In May 2019 a new charity will be voted on by my friends and family on Facebook to support for the upcoming year."
We are excited to have you on board, Stephanie! Welcome to the HPW Family!
