ELLEN KRANTZ

A top salesperson for more than 30 years, Ellen was born to be in sales and, with both parents working in the real estate industry, residential real estate was almost a given. Being a native Houstonian with a large circle of influence has been incredibly helpful for her. Ellen grew up in Meyerland and graduated from Bellaire High School. She is very knowledgeable about the city and personally invests in Houston real estate. She has owned homes in several different neighborhoods, including Garden Oaks, Southhampton, River Oaks, The Heights, and Bellaire where she lives now.

For Ellen, being a real estate professional is exciting. “I can find common ground with just about anyone,” she notes, “which is important in establishing a level of trust with your clients." Ellen believes the client’s best interest always comes first and she works hard to develop trust and respect to ensure that her clients will want to work with her in the future. She is honest, sincere, dependable and detail oriented with great follow-through.

Prior to her career in home sales, Ellen was a top salesperson in retail clothing. She was a co-founder of Girl World Sports in 1996 and took that company to more than $2 million in sales within its first two years, generating write-ups from the Houston Business Journal and the Entrepreneur magazine.

Ellen is a human rights advocate who volunteers and serves on leadership councils for several organizations that support equality and respect for all individuals. She attended the University of Southern California at Los Angeles, The University of Texas at Austin, and graduated from the University of Houston Main Campus with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Leisure time for Ellen is spent with her family and traveling.
