"From the beginning Ellen was professional beginning with complete explanation of the listing process. This was followed by having a professional photographer take numerous photographs of the interior of the condo as well as the exterior surrounding complex. In addition Ellen employed a drone photographer to take additional photos of the entire property. Throughout the listing / sale process Ellen kept us apprised of what was going on , concluding with accompanying us to the final closing procedures with the title company. Ellen has a comprehensive knowledge of the Cocoa Beach / Cape Canaveral real estate market as well as a firm handle on the sales listing process. She appeared to work very long hours, as responses came early morning to late evening. Ellen's understanding of the market proved itself early on with her suggested listing price being higher than any research we had done. The sale was eventually completed with the first individual that visited the property. Throughout the entire process , we had complete confidence in Ellen."

Ellen is very knowledgeable about the local market and is a tireless realtor that never takes a day off !Our home sold in 6 days with a full price cash offer from a buyer that received a virtual tour personally from Ellen.
My husband and I knew we were in excellent hands when we met Ellen . She's an exceptional agent and knowledgeable (area, mortgages, taxes etc.) responsive and very responsible. She really cares and finds a solution, that's why my husband and I knew we were in great hands.
Ellen was referred to us by a friend when we expressed an interest in buying a vacation property in the Cocoa Beach area. She was exceptional in understanding what we were looking for and provided three desirable properties on our first trip out, one of which we ended up buying, Ellen knows the area extremely well and is a a great negotiator. This whole process was new to us and she made the process stress free. We are located in New York and it required a lot of legwork on her part to address some of the details that needed to be ironed out. We received immediate answers to any questions we had. Ellen worked very hard to insure we were satisfied. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a reliable, honest real estate professional.
Selling with Ellen and the Rubino Group was a great experience. Ellen utilized all the current social media channels without losing that personal touch. She uses a texting system to schedule showings and always gave us feedback after showings. She and her staff and easy to reach and responsive to any and all questions whenever I called them. I highly recommend Ellen and her team if you need to buy or sell real estate.
We have done several real estate transactions over the years in various states and I have to say that Ellen is the best we have ever worked with. Super friendly yet professional, extremely responsive, and really cares to help find the solution for your needs. We were in excellent hands the whole time. She made great recommendations for lenders and insurance companies to contact. She knows the area very well and even helped us with school options. Thanks, Ellen! We will be working with you again.
Ellen is an awesome realtor. I was the buyer and she represented the Seller but she was available and willing to help me every time. She was very professional and went out of her way to get things done. I would recommend her for either buying or selling. If you are buying a house she listed, then you enjoy the experience even more!
Wow… in all the homes I have purchased I have never met a realtor more on top of things than Ellen Rubino. Ellen was professional from the word go and took care of everything! Never had any worries about anything getting done at the property we purchased and stayed in constant communication with us thru out the process. Her enthusiasm for what she does is amazing. Ellen is simply the best!
Ellen is a wonderful agent and person. Very caring for buyer and seller's needs. Helpful in every aspect, would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a good agent.
When we were tasked with selling my parents home in Merritt Isld. last year, my husband extensively interviewed several agents. We came up with our top 2 potentials, and met with them in person for an even more in-depth interview. Although we loved Ellen's candor and enthusiasm my husband choose to go with the older candidate, thinking this would equate to more experience and professionalism.......HOW WRONG WE WERE!!!
Ellen accomplished in 6 weeks what the other agent could not do in 4 months. Ellen is a tireless worker and a skilled negotiator. She is the ultimate professional, and possesses excellent communication skills. When you hit a roadblock, she is a master at figuring out options and solutions. Ellen will fight for you if she feels you have received an unfair appraisal, and will let you know (and back it up with data) if you have unrealistic exceptions. Her candor is a refreshing breath of fresh air, in an industry that excels in telling you what you want to hear (in order to get you to sign on the dotted line.) Lots of Realtors make promises, but Ellen delivers. Anyone can present offers... thats just paperwork. Its getting both parties to the closing table that represents skill. Ellen Rubino makes it happen.
We were EXTREMELY pleased with how she handled the sale of our house. We highly recommend her and would use her again ourselves,
without hesitation. With 8 Realtor transactions (buy/sell) in our lifetime, Ellen is without a doubt TOPS in our opinion!!
Ellen helped us sell our condo and purchase a house to rent through a 1031 Exchange. We could not have purchased the house or got the condo sold as fast as we did with out her.She treats every client as a priority and does not stop until everything is completed and you are happy.
We really enjoyed working with Ellen. Her connections and local knowledge made for a smooth transaction that was completed more quickly than we expected. We were glad to have her on our side when it came to price negotiations. Highly recommended.
Ellen is very knowledgeable in every aspect, whether it be selling a home or purchasing a new one. She is always available to answer any questions, and has the ability and "know how" to get things done.
I have been buying and selling homes for over 20 years. I have to say that Ellen Rubino is "Exceptional" in every sense of the word. She is very responsive, extremely knowledgable, incredible follow up skills and is relentless in all aspects of the business. I look forward to many more years of working together.
Ellen is a consummate professional in all aspects of the Real Estate process. Having worked with her on more than a dozen transactions both acquisition and sell she has always exceeded expectation. She pays particular attention to the timelines of the Deal making sure the myriad of moving parts are being handled (i.e. financing requirements, underwriting, appraisal,...). This facilitates a smooth closing which is a blessing in today's Real Estate Landscape. Highly recommended.
Ellen was amazing. She knew the areas we were looking in and warned us of the bad ones. We were actually just looking at the time to get familiar with the area as we are from out of state and found a home we could not let go. She was able to get the inspection for the home and seawall done within a week so that we could be there. I cant wait to move in. I would recommend her if you were looking to buy or sell.
After moving my mother to assisted living in Michigan, I needed to sell her condo in Cocoa Beach quickly. Having Ellen as my agent was the best thing that could happen. She was so compassionate during a stressful time for me, she made everything so much easier. Start to finish took only a week, and we got even more than my asking price. She's the best!!
Ellen worked real hard on selling the house and she exceeded my expectations, she sold the house in three days for more than we were asking, we also bought our new home from Ellen which she worked equally as hard and had the deal negotiated quickly to our satisfaction, great job from start to closing.
As an out of town buyer, having a quality real estate professional working for us was critical to quickly finding the right home. Ellen exceeded all our expectations. Her extensive knowledge of the local market allowed her to show us properties that were exactly what we were looking for. We quickly settled on a wonderful property and Ellen was fantastic at working the negotiation and getting us under contract. Since we were out of state, Ellen went above and beyond to ensure the process moved along to closing seamlessly. Working with Ellen on the purchase of our Space Coast home made the entire process an enjoyable experience.
I've used Ellen for many investment purchases. She knows the market! She REALY gets to know her clients, and goes out of her way to find the right property for them! After trying to work with many other agents in the cocoa beach area, that could really care less about me, I discovered Ellen.... She was on it from the second we met...she did not care how many properties we looked at and was very knowledgeable about all areas, neaborhoods , and condo complexes!! She wanted me to be extremely happy with my purchase.....not just close the deal, to make a quick buck!
Thank you Ellen! Can't wait to work with you again!!
I picked Ellen at random to help us look for a home in the general area of Cocoa Beach. She and I traded dozens of emails, including some after midnight the night before we arrived, in trying to decide which houses to see. Not knowing the area at all, we provided Ellen with a long list of houses, including homes in Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island, Cocoa, and other areas throughout the county. She gladly took us to all of the properties and assisted us in determining which area would work best for us. Once we made the decision on which location would work, she has been great at keeping us informed of changes in the market and when homes become available. In addition, she has a tremendous help with other items, such as getting us in contact with the right people regarding flood insurance, home rentals and her daily "no see ums" report to me!! I know that when I have a question, I can email her and get a response back very quickly that addresses the question. We have found her to be a true profession! We have looked at and purchased homes in several states throughout the southeastern U.S. If I feel a realtor is not working for me, then I find someone else. I only had to look once for someone in the Cocoa Beach area as I am thrilled to have Ellen as my realtor!
Ellen was enormously helpful in helping me find and purchase a home in the area. I was moving from Palm Beach County, so it was often difficult to get up here and check a house out. She went out of her way to check them out for me, take pictures, and even do extra research on them I did not even ask for. She consistently went above and beyond what I expected or even hoped for. The end result is that I love my new home. I give her my absolute highest recommendation.
Ellen searched for just the right property to suit our needs. It took a year but she was persistent and diligent. She is honest and pointed out things we were blind to. She is smart, always thinking about what is best for her clients, knowledgable, objective, and caring. She has us as clients and friends for life!
Ellen is an caring and dedicated real estate professional who has the right amount of wisdom, skill, and knowledge to help you pursue your real estate dreams. She takes this profession to the next level. I feel honored to work with such talent!
Our family needed to sell a Cocoa Beach condo from long distance. Ellen's local knowledge of the current market and total understanding of the process made the transaction quick and easy. She handled all the details from setting a current market price thru negotiations and closing. We closed at a slightly higher price then our target. The family was pleased and would highly recommend Ellen as an agent.
Ellen is a very caring, knowledgeable, and thorough agent. She has sold two properties for us and is now working on another venture for us. We are very pleased with her results.
She is very business friendly. She was very helpful in selling 2 pieces of property for me and helped me with all the local needs since I am not a resident of Florida. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.
Very personable with a wealth of knowledge. She is very pleasant to work with and had my best interest in mind at all times. The properties she showed me were very representative of what I was seeking and the one I picked was perfect for me.
From showing us houses just as we asked to holding our hands though a protracted closing, no fault of hers, we always were able to count on great information and on the spot advice. She had helpful referrals for all the things that come with buying a house including lender, home inspection and handyman. We have bought lots of houses and she has been the best realtor yet!
Ellen Rubino is an exceptional Real Estate Agent. She has that perfect balance of caring, professionalism and tenacity needed in today's competitive market. I really felt comfortable knowing I could sit back and let Ellen handle everything and she never let me down. Everything she did, she did well. She gave me great advice as to how to make the home the best it could be and quickly reported potential buyer feedback so I knew how the home was being perceived. The home was a moderately priced home and I was concerned it might not get the personal attention from a realtor that other higher priced homes (with bigger commissions) might get, but I was wrong about that. Ellen treated me like a million dollar customer with a million dollar home. She made me feel like my home was the most important home on her client list. I knew she was really looking out for me. I would recommend Ellen to anyone needing a Real Estate Agent. She is truly outstanding and she will be a blessing to you as she was to my family.
The very best agent. She is so motivated to sell your property, she listed my home took beautiful photos. She priced it just right and sold my home in two weeks. Ellen even helped me secure a rental house to move to. She treats you as if you are her only client and day or night she seems to always be available. She made a my experience easier than I could of imagined.
Ellen was very helpful throughout the entire process. Answered questions day and night, 24/7 and was full of positive energy and guidance. Buying a house, a first home is very stressful but I can honestly say as someone who stresses out ALOT the whole process was very smooth and I would even dare to say easy. I would definitely recommend Ellen to anyone and I plan on using her again in the future in terms of renting or reselling down the line. I would give Ellen a 10/10. I feel she went above and beyond to help me and I would definitely trust her to watch over my home or to help my friends or family find a home. I am sure I will be contacting her in the future with any questions and/or concerns I may have and I know she will be right there waiting to answer me. Thanks a lot for your time and help with the entire process.
