What happens when a commercial insurance agent and a teacher combine forces? You get the perfect blend for a real estate brokerage, as is true for the Hanscom & Ellison Group. Doug Hanscom’s analytical skills and Judy Ellison’s educational skills work together to provide an excellent resource for their clients.
The Hanscom & Ellison Group gives 110% to every client, meeting whatever needs they have. As a result, clients have commented that they would’ve never made it through their transactions without them and that they’ve gone well beyond their expectations. “It’s important for us to know our clients can rely on us as experts in our field,” the team says. “We sell their homes, provide service partners to them and have been known to water plants, pull weeds and vacuum carpets when necessary!”
Clients appreciate the team’s broad range of skills, knowledge, open availability and attentive engagement. They even took the pandemic in stride, quickly adapting to changes. Hanscom and Ellison can connect with their clients personally and provide the professional and personal support they need. “That individual touch distinguishes us from other brokers,” they say. “We’ve spent innumerable hours, weeks, months showing properties to clients to find the long-sought-after ‘perfect’ spot. Finding that home after a long search is very satisfying!”
Hard work and over 35 years of experience through numerous economic cycles and world events have landed Hanscom and Ellison many industry recognitions, such as Chicago’s Five Star Real Estate Agent award, Coldwell Banker’s International President’s Circle, Coldwell Banker’s International Diamond Society and a RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award.
“We work well with our clients’ specific needs,” the pair says. “We are patient and thoughtful as we provide top-notch service. It’s more than a business to us — it’s a mission to serve our clients.” The pair also likes to give back to the community they serve. Hanscom enjoys working with high school special-needs students through the Young Life organization, while Ellison is actively involved in her church’s programs for children.
