Meet Ellie

Raised in Albany, educated at UC Berkeley, and a homeowner in the East Bay, I know deeply what it is to build a life here.
 
As a 6th generation Bay Area native and the daughter of a framing contractor/home inspector father, I’ve been scaling roofs and spelunking through half-framed homes since I was a child. Knowledge of construction and building is a rare skill in this industry, but one I wouldn’t practice real estate without. I educate my clients in the fundamentals of home structures as they house hunt, so they make their purchase armed with confidence and knowledge of the condition of their new home.
 
My offer and pricing methodology is informed by my awareness of the minutiae of our local market. I guide clients through offer strategy with precision because I remain constantly in tune with local transactions; list price of recent sales, how many offers were received, the sale price, and with what terms. The market evolves almost weekly in Berkeley, Oakland, El Cerrito, Richmond, and the surrounding areas, so it’s critical to work with an agent immersed in the local ecosystem in order to win without overpaying and to sell with maximum return.
 
I work closely with my mother, Sarah Ridge, a top 30 East Bay agent, and our shared expertise is a boon to both our clients. Each transaction is deeply personal to us and we treat one another’s clients as though they were our own, pouring over the details of every contract and negotiation from our Solano Avenue office.
 
As you search for your home in the East Bay, a true local real estate agent is the key to navigating and winning in our intense and competitive market. My work is the great passion of my life. Nothing is more important than helping my clients find a corner of the world to call their own.
 
I cannot wait to serve you. Let’s get you home.
