Client Reviews and Testimonials


    Peggy H - Sale of CDM Duplex, Sale and Purchase of 2 Newport Coast homes

    If you are buying or selling in the Newport area, look up my friend Ellen Hanson Walker. She has handled all the sales for my family for the past five years. You could not find a better realtor!
    Ellen Hanson Walker is absolutely the best agent a home buyer or seller could wish for. During the last five years, I have sold two homes, leased and purchased a condo and leased two rental properties. Ellen handled every transaction from start to finish. I have been extremely pleased with the outcome of each sale and purchase. On every single transaction, Ellen negotiated excellent terms that not only exceeded my expectations, but kept all parties on excellent terms throughout and after the close of the transactions. Ellen is the ultimate professional. She is not only incredibly knowledgeable, efficient, detail oriented and resourceful, Ellen is a sincere and caring person who works non-stop for her clients.
    With my most recent sale of my home in Newport Coast,  Ellen did an exceptional job of pricing, marketing & selling my home. There were several challenges I had in this situation and she advised me of many factors that may affect my sale and provided solutions to overcome those challenges and receive the highest possible sales price. Ellen worked nonstop and tirelessly on this sale. She was available at all times for any question or request. She went far beyond what I ever expected to make this sale happen.

    The Biglands

    I would highly recommend Ellen Hanson Walker to anyone who needs a fantastic Realtor. She was prompt, attentive, friendly and accommodated my crazy schedule, as I was an out-of-town buyer. My husband has been relocated many times over the past 25 years, and therefore I have had experience with many Realtors. Ellen was by-far the best Realtor I've ever worked with and made this experience one that was fun and easy. I would definitely use her again.

    The Butynskis

    We owe everything to Ellen and very thankful for her services! We wouldn't of been able to make the move from the Bay Area to Orange County without her.  Ellen listened to our needs when explaining the ideal living situation to her and found a property that exceeded our expectations!


    Everything about Ellen's service style was a special effort.  We had a very tight timeline for our move and she made everything so easy.  We especially liked the listing link she put together for us which made our site visits of the properties efficient and we knew what was available.  Ellen took diligent notes after each viewing of what we liked and didn't so she knew what would work for us and respected the price point we were looking for and guided us to realistic expectations.  Not to mention she accommodated our quick trip to view homes within a week.  Lastly, Ellen was available prior to move in to go over a move in check list with us.  This is very valuable to document and something we probably wouldn't of done without her.

    The Garcias - Sale of Newport Heights home

    Ellen was a true pleasure to work with and an extremely hard worker. She was very knowledgible of the local market and helped us list our home for a fair price. Always knowing the current inventory, Ellen was able to defend our price and ultimately brought us the perfect buyer. Understanding the difficulty of having one's house on the market, Ellen always gave us ample notice to show the house. In addition, she was diligent in always "qualifying" a potential buyer before agreeing to show the house. Ellen was friendly, easy to communicate with, and always returned calls/emails promptly. She is an excellent negotiator, closing the sale with all details finalized and both parties happy. Ellen is confident, honest, trustworthy, and extremely professional. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home, as she is one of the best in her field.   - Donna Garcia
     Ellen Walker is the best real state agent my wife and I have ever worked with. She is very professional, ethical, dedicated, hard working, creative, and a pleasure to work with. Ellen definitively goes the extra mile for her clients and respected our privacy. I would recommend Ellen to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. I would also be more than happy to be a reference for Ellen.   - Carlo Garcia

    The Acostas - Sale of 1st Newport Coast home & Purchase of 2nd Newport Beach home

    Ellen has represented us in three different residential real estate transactions including an REO purchase that took 8 months to close. Ellen is personable and professional. She approaches every challenge strategically by keeping the bigger picture in mind. Ellen is a strong negotiator yet a team player who will go out of her way to assist the opposing broker if it means getting the deal done correctly and efficiently. Above all, Ellen is trustworthy and wonderful person. I highly recommend Ellen to serve as your real estate professional. Megan Acosta


    The Baldygas - Purchase of Orange Hills Dream Home

    Signing the loan docs for their dream home with the most amazing view of all of Orange County! I spent over a year patiently showing them every option that met their criteria in Laguna Niguel and Mission Viejo.  Then I introduced them to the view properties in the Rocking Horse Ridge development of Orange Hills and they thank me every time I see them! 
     Ellen masterfully negotiated the purchase of the house of our dreams. Without her personal attention to detail and out-of-the-box thinking, we would still be in search for a home! I STRONGLY recommend Ellen to ANYONE looking for someone that understands the Real Estate market and can assist you with navigating through challenging buyer and purchaser issues.  - Laureen Baldyga
  • The View from Casa Baldyga

    Tom loving his 180 degree Orange County sunset view from the backyard of his dream home.
    Ellen was the very reason that we got the house of our dreams. She persisted with finding the right combination and solution for both parties. Was always very informative, would go the extra mile to find information on all the properties we looked at. She worked very hard and diligently for us for quite a while and it was the very reason we are happy for the rest of our lives. I would highly recommend Ellen as an agent to anyone.  - Tom Baldyga
