Selling a home is a process that we make easy. See what our clients are saying! 

MaryEllen provided excellent guidance in the preparation, listing and selling our home. She was always available for questions and worked with us within the timeline we needed. Best of all she negotiated the desired outcome - price and terms. We were very pleased throughout the entire process. I trusted her judgement and would have her as a real estate agent again.

Martha Williams

My husband and I felt so lucky to have met and worked with MaryEllen during a crazy time in the real estate market. She sat down with us and really listened to everything we were looking for in a new home. She did her homework, walked us through the process of selling and buying and made us feel completely comfortable. She was available whenever we had questions and her confidence in what she does shines through. Selling and buying could have been a very stressful time, but she never made us feel the stress! It almost felt ridiculously easy with her. She is a go-getter and works hard for her clients. You can tell she loves what she does. We would highly recommend MaryEllen when buying or selling a home!


Happy Buyer & Seller

MaryEllen was recommended to us by a friend of ours after their recent sale and purchase of a new home. They had worked with a different realtor early in the process and switched to MaryEllen and we’re immediately impressed.

As we were making our first house purchase we needed a significant amount of guidance and help along the way and MaryEllen was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. In a process where we knew nothing, we never felt like we were packing support in making the right decision. She has continued to help us after the purchase, from helping us find HVAC technicians, plumbers and help navigating an HOA. She has been like an additional warranty for our purchase, over a year since we moved in. Whether your first or 15th house, I would recommend Ragsdale Homes to you.

Happy Buyer
