1586 N. Clybourn Chicago, IL 60642



Energetic, knowledgeable and passionate about what she does, Ellen Baren is genuinely a client’s REALTOR®. Through in-depth guidance, personal exploration and attention to details, Ellen has not only earned the trust of her clients, but their friendship and respect as well. These skills and the personal dedication she brings to her work allow her to truly become her client’s trusted adviser.

The world of real estate is one that is always changing. To guarantee her place as an outstanding real estate adviser and negotiator, Ellen is constantly learning about the market, current trends and the many aspects of marketing and technology. Her job is to exceed all client expectations, and by positioning herself with in depth knowledge of Chicago’s real estate market, she is able to do so.

“At no other time in an individual’s life, does a person put more trust in someone they have just met, than when buying or selling a home. The process of buying and selling a home requires empathy, patience and caring. By bringing these skills to the table, I serve as my clients’ adviser, advocate and partner. All people deserve a great real estate agent… an agent that will take the time to focus on the needs and wants of the client while guiding them as needed.”

Ellen guarantees this by keeping her client base to a manageable size and only working with a select number at any given time. She is always reachable, responds promptly via text, email or phone and goes the extra mile to negotiate on her client’s behalf and get the transaction to the closing table. “I believe that much of my success can be attributed to the fact that I am dedicated to this profession and passionate about helping my clients reach their real estate goals…and I love what I do!”


Clients are saying...

"We worked with Ellen Baren to sell our two bedroom condo in Rogers Park. She was extremely professional and also is an out-of-the-box thinker, which served us very well. She was also very knowledgeable about the market and got us a fair price on our condo. She was great to work with and we highly recommend her!Patrick and Kelley Regan"

"Ellen was amazing! She was ALWAYS available, went above and beyond what I had ever expected of an agent and provided me with great advice and guidance throughout this whole process. I recommend her 150% to anyone buying their first place, selling their old place or just relocating. She has a contagious personality and works harder than most people I know. What an AWESOME first home buying experience for me! I couldn't be happier with the whole process and my new home :)"

"When we bought our Historic Bungalow in West Ridge, "Ellen worked tirelessly on our behalf to make sure the deal went through. Her encouragement and calm were instrumental in getting us to closing". This was a multiple offer situation and because of her strategy and negotiation skills our offer was accepted!"
