Her move to Las Vegas in 2006 to be with her two children has been one of her best decisions. Ellen originally lived in Henderson, on the east side and now resides in Summerlin on the west side of town. She enjoys an active lifestyle and truly believes that Las Vegas offers a more enriched well-being for their residents.

Our success is based on placing you first

We got in touch with Ellen Kaptain four years before our retirement. She faithfully sent us potential listings every month that fell within our parameters and kept in touch. When the time came to buy, she showed us a beautiful townhouse on our first day of going out with her. She had listened to how important it was to be in walking distance of a clubhouse/fitness center, within our price range and with features we would enjoy. Ellen is professional and pleasant to work with, but most importantly, she is responsive. If we had a question, Ellen usually got back to us the same day, if not the same hour. That reassurance was critical to us out-of-state buyers. Thank you, Ellen!

Dream Realtor = Dream House but only if you work with Ellen Kaptain! There isn't enough space to praise the caring, friendly, knowing, competent and fun professional that is Ellen! She actively listened to my "wish" list and educated me about the greater LV area and the 55plus choices that fit my needs. The search went quickly in a competitive market and I am now in my dream home - all in less than a month! Thank you Ellen! Work with Ellen and she will find your dream home!

Good morning everybody, it is my pleasure to talk about my favorite Nevada realtor for the 55 plus communities, Ellen Kaptain. It has been the most wonderful experience because Ellen Kaptain is so gracious and very knowledgeable about the 55 plus community and especially Siena, a golf community located in Summerlin South. With her expertise and knowledge I was able to obtain this beautiful house in the Siena community. There are so many wonderful qualities about Ellen! Very attentive with details to me. Let me know what is going on with my new house. We closed escrow quickly and on a good schedule. She even called a fence company, a reputable contractor to get an idea of a HOA allowed fence for my backyard to contain my 2 dogs. Ellen, how can I ever thank you. You are just the most wonderful realtor I have ever met, and I will always recommend you because I trust you and wish you the best! God bless!

We toyed with the idea of a house in vegas. We found Ellen on 55places.com & she
tirelessly looked for & sent listings we might be interested in. Casually we looked
through the listings for the better part of a year. Never any pressure, she would check in with us to make sure we were on the same page. Then one day, bamm!!! There it was!!! The house that checked off all of our boxes & even some boxes we didn't know we had! It is the house we never knew, we always wanted!!!
Ellen was our secret weapon, our own mover & shaker!!! In one day, we went from a
long distance phone call, placed an offer, she skillfully negotiated around another offer that was on the table & made the deal that took the cake!!!
Glitches came up, none of which even slowed her down. Ellen is the real deal! She is
hooked up with the right people, knows her field like the back of her hand, is savvy &
negotiates a mean deal. Ellen shook the trees that needed shaking & in 4 weeks & 2
days, we closed. Not only did we have the house of our dreams, complete with the big
red bow & bottle of champagne but also... A friend in her for life!!!
Ellen Kaptain is our champion & we are convinced, that is the only way she knows how to be!!! She is golden! Thank you Ellen!

When I unexpectedly needed to buy a house, I got in touch with Ellen; I was looking for a small single story, and she diligently searched from Henderson to Summerlin. She found me a great place I love, and skillfully negotiated a fair offer for me. Her local
knowledge and network of other realtors, appraisers, and loan providers was a great resource, and we were able to close quickly. I would recommend her to anyone needing a competent hard working realtor.

"Ellen Kaptain is a great resource. I was moving to Las Vegas and did not know the market.  She knows the market, understands the area, and listens carefully to my needs.  I was very impressed with her professionalism and ability to work with me, both long distance and in person.  We explored the areas throughout the Las Vegas valley, before I reached my decision.   She put in a lot of time to make sure I was comfortable with my decision.  I would highly recommend Ellen Kaptain."

"It was fantastic working with Ellen to find our home in Sun City Summerlin! Ellen took the time to find out exactly what we wanted to see in our new home, and arranged to let us see all of the properties that matched our criteria. Once we decided on our new house, Ellen helped us with all of the details and documents in a very professional manner. Ellen helped us to arrange our inspection as well as with all of the other things we needed to do to make sure everything went smoothly. Ellen was there every step of the way, and continued to follow up with us following our closing and move in! Ellen knows the 55 Plus Las Vegas market, and goes above and beyond for her clients! Ellen Kaptain is a true professional, and I would highly recommend her as an agent to anyone looking for a home in Las Vegas!"

"Generally speaking, when purchasing a home most realtors do a good job.  However, when you have difficulty throughout the transaction, you want someone who is ABOVE and BEYOND!  Ellen Kaptain is tenacious and will get the job done!"

"I was fortunate to find Ellen on this website. After speaking with Ellen on the phone and meeting with her in person regarding the sale of my home I am confident she was the agent I needed to sell my home. I found her to be a true professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Ellen kept me informed every step of the way. Ellen listed my home and within one day of the listing I had a cash buyer! Thanks Ellen!!"

"Ellen is simply terrific. My family needed to sell a house in Henderson after our oldest sister’s unexpected death. We live in California and Ohio. Ellen met us at the house with all comps, net sheets and other documents at the ready. We were immediately comfortable with her and hired her on the spot. She worked closely with our probate attorney. The house sold for full along price, cash on the first day. She is a great communicator, a hustler and a true professional. I recommend her without hesitation."

"Ellen is a professional and efficient realtor who assisted my family in dealing with a difficult situation. My sister passed away without a will and owned a home in a senior community. All of our family members live in different states . Ellen helped us navigate the idiosyncrasies of the Nevada probate court. We received a full price, cash offer within a week. She is honest, compassionate and goes the extra mile. I highly recommend her!"

"Ellen did a GREAT job with every aspect of my recent purchase of a home in Sienna. From our first meeting to the closing she was knowledgeable, detail oriented and a true professional. First class RE agent all the way!  Ellen Kaptain is great....from start to closing she was on top of every part of the sale. Selling/Buying a home is VERY stressful, Ellen took all the stress and worry out of the entire process. 5 STAR Rating all the way around!"

"My wife and I were looking for a second home in Anthem. I found Ellen Kaptain on the 55 places web site and decided to fill out the on line form. Ellen promptly called me and introduced herself. I explained what we were looking for and gave her a loose time line for when we wanted to purchase by.

Between my wife and I, we made a number of trips from Illinois, where we currently live to Henderson. All I had to do was text Ellen and tell her I was flying in for a day and she put together 6 to 10 properties for me to look at. She was so accommodating, she would pick me up at the Hotel and drop me back at the airport when we were finished looking at the properties.

After nearly a year of looking with Ellen, we found or second home in Anthem. We are thrilled with the home and the service we received from Ellen. She is a true professional and she helped us through each step of the purchase process. Since we are from Illinois, I was not familiar with purchasing a home in Nevada and all the rules and regulations. Ellen explained the process in plain English and made the purchase process very easy.

If you are looking for a really personable and professional real estate agent, give Ellen a call. She was the best and she will take very good care of you and work hard for you to get you exactly what you are looking for."

"I can't begin to convey what a positive experience my husband and I had using Ellen Kaptain as our agent when we bought our house in North Las Vegas. Ellen communicated with us almost daily and walked us through every step in the process that was required. We had not had a real estate transaction in years so we appreciated here conscientiousness. She made the process seamless. I would highly recommend Ellen to anyone considering buying or selling in the Las Vegas community."

"Ellen Kaptain's professional demeanor has made our "new adventure" a great one. After many years of "wishing" my husband and I are relocating permanently from Ohio to Las Vegas. Ellen helped us evaluate and select a 55+ community that fit our lifestyle. We love the home we purchased. Except for one trip to Las Vegas, all of our interaction took place long distance. Ellen walked us through everything required and was with us on the entire journey. She has continued to help us with a few post-closing issues. We’re very happy with her services and would recommend her highly."

"Ellen is a great agent. She is not only professional she is very kind and concerned with all aspects of the sale. She was always there for us, just a call away. We not only had a super agent we now have a friend. Thanks, Ellen, for making a difficult process a pleasant one. Because of her, the joy of buying this home will always be a happy memory."
