Allison W.

We were matched with Ellen Murphy by our Relocation consultant so it was very helpful to have an agent that knew the area so well, especially when we didn’t! She really took the time to get to know us and she understood exactly what my husband and I were looking for. Getting in touch with her was very easy, she was always available to talk or text with me whenever. Ellen knew that the areas of town we thought we wanted to live in weren’t for us and she gently nudged us to look in areas outside of our comfort zone. I think that comes with her knowing the area so well. We are so happy she gave us that nudge, we love where we ended up! You won’t go wrong with Ellen as your realtor. She’ll find you a great house!

Katie has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She has a great knowledge of the area, knows how to work deals, and is responsive! Katie went the extra mile with us and made us feel like we were her only customers when I know she was very busy. I cannot wait to work with Katie on future homes. If you are looking for a realtor that is honest, hard working, dedicated, and a great personality you have to give her a call. I have no doubt you will not be disappointed.

When the real estate agent who helped us find our home when we moved back to Olathe switched professions, we knew we would eventually need to find a new agent. Our friends were very impressed with Suzanne Golomski and we were able to meet her a few times during their house buying process and really  liked her too. Suzanne worked above and beyond with the sale of our house. She even vacuumed the house for pictures while I scrambled to finish changing out curtains and wrangle my two children and dog out of the shots. She helped us understand the entire process and was great at communicating with us about all aspects of the sale. She is the perfect combination of professional yet approachable. She gives honest feedback (on things like how to help the house show better) and was very patient and understanding with the reality of our life with two small kids. She also did a great job of easing my nerves on a number of occasions when I would start to get overwhelmed with the whole process. Our experience was wonderful and we would highly recommend Suzanne to anybody looking to buy or sell their home.

Katie is the best at what she does. She is knowledgeable, always quick to respond and very fun to work with. Going through our first home hunting, she has been in every step of the way, taught us everything about homes and what we should look after, pointing out to the upsides and downsides of  each potential house. We learned a lot from her, and she made the experience enjoyable and less stressful.

Happy Client

Suzanne was incredibly easy to work with. Her knowledge of the market helped sell our house for more then we thought possible. She worked with us to sell (and buy) our home as if it was her home too. Her attention to detail was impressive. She was incredibly professional and a pleasure to work  with. Would not hesitate to contact her again with any and all real estate endeavors.

Bri

Katie is the best! She made the overwhelming process of buying a home easy and was there every step of the way! Katie is incredibly knowledgeable about location, value, and construction, which was awesome when viewing homes! I would recommend her to everyone I know!

Suzanne helped us sell our condominium on the Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. She dealt wonderfully with a buyer who chose not to use an agent. In essence, she performed the work of two agents. Once we sold that condo, we asked Suzanne to help us find a new condo/townhouse further south. Our  primary residence is in Alabama, so she had to rearrange her schedule to meet our needs to locate a new property for us. My husband was in KC for a very short period of time in February and asked Suzanne to show him as many properties as she could find. She did not disappoint. Many to choose from! I then traveled to KC in March to scope out a few that my husband liked and we decided on a townhouse in Leawood, Ks. (which we love). We have our house on the market in Alabama and we just mentioned to Suzanne that we were not very happy with our realtor. She took it upon herself to investigate aggressive realtors in our area and put them in contact with us. We signed a contract with them recently.

Ellen Murphy is real estate genius, and we got whiff of that when we met her at a showing of a house we liked. We were unrepresented, and despite being drawn to her —- we wondered if it would be challenging to have her rep us , while also repping the seller. In some instances, people would say it’s a high risk scenario, because it would be difficult to fairly represent both parties. We didn’t put an offer that time because we had not sorted out our finances and it was off the market the next day. When that house became momentarily available, she immediately contacted me and we were so excited! She navigated the deal on our behalf and she hustled very hard despite we were not yet contracted on paper. That just proves how hard she works. It didn’t work out because it went back to the original buyer (which we knew was a possibility). But ultimately, it worked out way better for us because she aquired “the one” for us in the following month. Ellen has a special inner quality of “je ne sais quoi” that glowsvery few have it. Not only we did we get lucky with that aspect but being long distance– we needed an agent who would “get things done”. That’s Ellen, it gets done fast and WELL! In addition, Ellen Murphy is like a Black Diamond quality real estate agent , whom we are thankful for, because her strengths had to make up for other agent’s weaknesses. It’s a privilege not only getting her to help us, but also getting to know the person, behind the SuperAgent .

If you want someone that would attend to all your needs as a realtor, then Suzanne Golomski is your person to get the job done. She is excellent with her knowledge through the whole process. Thank you so much Suzanne

Katie waltzed into our lives like a breath of fresh air. She is enthusiastic, upbeat and positive, and knowledgeable about current market trends. She knew the best time to list our home and at the best price point to attract the most viewers and the most competitive offers, driving the selling price up far beyond our hopes. She analyzed all of the offers and explained the differences in terms between each so we could easily compare them. Selling a home is a very personal experience, and Katie understands that. Prior to listing, she told us what we NEEDED to hear (but didn’t necessarily WANT to hear) about what our home needed prior to listing it so it would show in its best possible light and she did that without passing judgement, leaving our dignity intact. Katie has been responsive to our every concern and has been in contact with us through every step of this process. Her guidance and happy disposition have made this experience delightful and I’m so pleased with the ease at which it’s all unfolded. I highly recommend Katie and won’t trust my future business to anyone else. She is sharp, quick, and has been such a joy with which to work! Thanks, Katie!!

Ellen Murphy was generous enough to give us time to show us some houses without making an appointment or commitment during 4th of July weekend. She did not pressure us to become our realtor or even ask for our phone numbers. She gave us both a business card and told us to contact her if we needed help in the future. 1 year later we sold our house and were ready to purchase a home in Kansas. Both my husband and I immediately agreed that we wanted Ellen as our realtor. We love her enthusiasm and her spunkiness. We knew she was always looking out for our best interest. I knew I could count on Ellen to stand in for me in my absence during the final walk through. Her attention to detail is superb! Ellen opened her schedule to show us houses on short notice when I came to Kansas for a house hunting trip. She previewed every house to find the perfect house that met our specifications. She narrowed the search to less than 10 houses because she knew our time was short. After looking at only 2 houses, Ellen found us the perfect house! If and when we move, she will be the only realtor we would consider. We both highly recommend Ellen Murphy to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

Katie is an absolutely fantastic real estate agent! We couldn’t have asked for a better agent to go through the home buying experience with. Katie was always so quick to respond and was always willing to take us to any showing we were interested in. She is very skilled at negotiating and working  with other agents, which is so crucial in this competitive market! She has so much knowledge of the area and was great at pointing out potential upsides and downsides of each home we were considering. We are first time home buyers, which can be a very stressful process, but Katie made everything as smooth as possible for us. She really took the time to get to know us and to find out exactly what we wanted. She is so positive, upbeat, and friendly! We really couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else! We bought our first house with her, my parents sold their house with her, and my brother will be using her to find his first home as well. I would highly recommend Katie without hesitation to anyone looking for a great real estate agent!

Watermann

Did not really have any other contact with ReeceNichols outside of Ellen’s team, she took care of it all.

A true real estate professional.She help guide us every step of the way.

We love Ellen. She is the rare person in Real Estate that makes it about you and not the deal. I would happy recommend her.

Thomas

I knew from past experience that Ellen Murphy would put more effort and enthusiasm into the process than any other real estate agent.

We would not have had the opportunity to purchase this property without the extraordinary efforts of Ellen and Katie. Ellen had the opportunity to speak with the sellers and learn what was important to them. She then tailored our offer to meet the owners needs. Our offer was accepted even though it was not the highest offer. The entire process was easy and fun.

Ellen and Katie both always exceeded our expectations and were super professional in every communication. I would recommend their team to all my friends and associates.

Doug K.

Suzanne Golomski and team were amazing. They know the formula for success and knew exactly what levers to pull to see our house. They priced it $10k higher than any house had sold in our subdivision and we got more than our asking within 48 hours. They got information to agents and buys and built upon the value of our house. Cannot say enough about how well they did

Carol W.

Ellen Murphy was responsive to my calls and spent time face to face answering questions. I had watched her market a house near mine and been extremely impressed by the energy she personally invested in making that home more marketable. She and her husband mowed the lawn, pulled weeds and enhanced the landscaping on that property in order to help the owner whose husband had already been transferred.

Ellen has a way of cutting to the chase in a situation without making you feel that she is rushing you. Her Agency sold both my husband’s and my home in very close proximity. While that was great, it was also very difficult to pack up two homes in a month which each had a full basement of “treasures” and two complete homes of furniture. Ellen always came up with ideas to make the process seem less daunting and even provided help to complete the task.

I will definitely contact Ellen the next time I move. My husband and I were recently in an accident and she offered to help if we needed anything. She even recommended a chiropractor, who turned out to be rated in the top 10 in the state of Kansas. The staff in that office refer to Ellen as an amazing woman…and they are right!

Shawn & Bryan

If you’re looking for a real estate professional with a wonderful personality, a wealth of knowledge and a ton of tenacity…look no further than Katie Brooks. We happened upon Katie by referral and couldn’t be more happy with the results. Katie was always there for us, took all the time we needed  to drive us EVERYWHERE and made sure that we were covered from every angle of the purchase of our new home. The best part of our time with Katie, we gained a new friend here in the KC area. Give Katie a call, you will not be disappointed.

Michael C.

I highly recommend Ellen Murphy. She went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. She did everything necessary to alleviate any burdens that we’d had personally and professionally. Ellen definitely changed my perspective on realtors and how polite courteous, and great people they are. Great job Ellen. Thank you so much for helping to change my life.

Cannezarro

We had a great experience working with Suzanne on the purchase of our new home. She
came in with a plan of how best to get our home ready to sell and made all the
necessary appointments with contractors to get the house updated and on the
market in quick fashion. All her hard work paid off as the home sold in less than 24
hours after going on the market! Suzanne was wonderful to work with.

Brit Streebin

We worked with Ellen to purchase and sell our home and have recommended her to our friends and family. She is absolutely amazing and we will never use another broker to buy or sell a home again. She works tirelessly and will not settle if she does not think it is a good deal. We love her and are excited to work with her in the future!

D. Carr

Ellen is a one of a kind agent, she helps with every side of the sale and makes it look easy. She is the kindest person I have met in a very long time. Ellen Murphy will not let you down. Her energy and smile alone will have you sold after meeting with her for a pre listing meeting!

Blakes

Katie was a rockstar throughout the entire process of selling our house! I thought it would be really stressful but Katie took care of everything. Seriously! Katie was the perfect match for us. She is an excellent communicator, completely dependable and she is such a joy to be around. I don’t know anyone else who has had an experience as flawless as ours. Highly recommend!

McMillin

“Ellen, and her assistant Erin, came to our house for a first-time interview and were well-prepared. They had obviously done extensive research and work to prepare for the interview and they were armed with lots of information on sales history and trends in our neighborhood, price comparables, and provided us tips on what we could do to make our house ready for showings without even knowing they had the contract yet.

For as large of a sales transaction as this was, Ellen made it extremely efficient, seamless and easy. She obviously put a lot of work into it behind the scenes that we as sellers didn’t hear about or see because from our end it was very easy.

Since this transaction began, we not only have come to realize what an amazing real estate agent Ellen is, but also what a great friend she is as well. Working with her, you get to hear and see firsthand all the knowledge she brings to her business, business, but you also get to know Ellen personally, which has been a great bonus in working with her.

Ellen’s real estate partner, Erin Dooley, was tremendous and provided great support “behind-the-scenes”, making sure things stayed on track and on time.

Ellen made the very emotional and lengthy process of selling our wonderful home as easy and painless as possible. We greatly appreciate all the work, focus and commitment Ellen put into the sale of our home. ”

Cook

I could not believe how easy Suzanne made the entire process from listing, staging,
photographs, advertisements and open house to eventually the sale and close of our
home. She followed up with every showing and made our job as owners so easy. She
would be up on the weekends at 7 AM at the office making sure everything was as
it should be and the job got done. Her response time was immediate as well which
means a lot to me as I am so busy. A phone call, email or text was always returned
within seconds. Suzanne was first class, professional and responsive and I can’t
imagine finding any other realtor that would make the task of selling a home easier
than she did!

Lori V.

Ellen Murphy and her team were all rock stars when it came to selling our home and purchasing a new one. We couldn’t have had a better experience.

Yazmin R.

Katie Brooks helped us buy our first investment property. Katie gave us (my husband and I) an outstanding service from start to finish. I emailed her for the first time asking for some info on a property on a late evening and she reply back immediately. I was very impressed how soon she was up to speed and gave me all the inputs and research on the property. She is very resourceful ,even after the sale, I touched base with her to find some info on renter resources and she replied back. Katie is a very organized realtor, that kept us on track and I always felt that she was looking up on how to meet all of our needs perfectly and have our best interest too.

Justin & Noel

Ellen is not only one of the best realtors on the planet, she is also one of the nicest human beings I have ever met. She is extremely good at what she does, she is very knowledgeable in every aspect of real estate, and she is always there when you need her. You will not find a better real estate experience anywhere else, or a better group of people to work with. Her expertise, advice, and overall approach to buying and selling are top notch, and it eliminates so much stress from the process. I can’t say enough good things about Ellen, and about her office. Highly, highly recommend.

Monique

After 6 weeks with minimal action with our first realtor, Suzanne Golomski was a
light at the end of the tunnel. She assessed our needs and gave us a frank appraisal of
what we needed to do to sell our house. It was sold within 4 days of being re-listed.
Suzanne was extremely accessible during this entire process. Suzanne went above
and beyond when it came to communication and accessibility. We actually told her to
take a break over Father’s Day to enjoy her family and not worry about the sale of our
house! Closing went frighteningly smoothly

M.Noll

Katie was a wonderful realtor with which to work. I found her to be skilled and smart when it comes to real estate and perhaps just important, she was an excellent listener. I highly recommend working with Katie!

Steve O.

Katie did an amazing job getting our investment property ready for sale. She assisted in staging the property as it was vacant and it had multiple offers straight out the gate. We were out of town quite a bit while the home was listed and she went out there before and after every showing to turn the lights on or off when we were not able to. The sale and the negotiations went smoothly through offer, inspections, and closing. Great realtor!

Gary J.

Ellen Murphy helped to create a very positive sales experience for us. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and handled our sale in a confident, professional manner. The “team” concept was a plus and her associate, Erin Dooley, also provided excellent service and value. We are now looking to buy a new house and we are again looking to Ellen to help us through the process.

Zach & Mackenzie

My fiancé and I began our search in hopes of finding our dream home! We had a lot of wants and I feared we would never find the perfect home and thought we would just have to settle. We were referred to Ellen by a family friend. After meeting Ellen I knew this process was going to be a lot easier. She has a lot of clients and somehow makes time to answer every phone call, every text, every question and every need! After seeing several homes we finally found the perfect home, but so did several other families. I was crushed because I thought no way we could get this house with all the other offers. Ellen reassured me she would take care of it. That next morning we had beat out the other families! Our offer was below asking pricing but somehow Ellen worked her magic and we got this house. I tell everyone in the home buying process to at least give her a call! She is amazing!!

Anne & Gary

We chose Ellen because we had worked with her previously and found her and her team to be very professional. She offered her expert advice and steared us away from properties with issues.

Our experience was made stress free thanks to Ellen and her team.

We love Ellen and her team and will use her any time we need a realtor.
