You may have noticed something a little different if you’ve browsed a Collection, written a review for us on Angi, or exchanged email correspondence recently: we are now Liz & Ellie Local. We’re the same great team and we still hang our hats with Compass; we just answer to a different name. We think it better reflects our expertise in the local markets of Greater Boston, as well as our deep connections to our personal communities of Cambridge and Somerville. To us, real estate is more than helping people achieve the impossible and buy a home in a “hot” zip code (though we do that all the time); it’s also about supporting the communities where we have lived, worked, and played for nearly 30 years. Liz has two kids who went through the Cambridge public schools from K-12, and Ellie knows every dog park and bike lane initiative inside out. We love where we live, and want you to love your neighborhood, too.
Our clients deserve our best.
Liz & Ellie Local is proud to acknowledge that our work often coincides with important moments in people's lives, literally puts roofs over heads, and fulfills dreams. This is a big deal. It means:
Our attention to each client is absolute. We actively listen and respond promptly.
We value honesty and share our insights.
We protect our clients’ interests with no exceptions.
We approach problems as critical thinkers.
We are experts whose ultimate goal is to inform and bring success to our clients.
Compass remains our dynamic, tech-savvy, and supportive home base: we use Compass tools to market a home with style and precision, connect buyers with the home of their dreams, and support buyers and sellers throughout their entire transaction. Read more about how we’re “Powered by Compass” here.
We’re serious about helping everyone find their place.
Compass’s mission is “helping everyone find their place in the world,” and we use this mantra to inspire our work at Liz & Ellie Local. We strive to make our communities more welcoming and supportive of the people living there. Each member of our team volunteers regularly in our own neighborhoods: rescuing, fostering, and rehoming animals, collecting and distributing healthy food, helping resettle an Afghan family, and serving as a Big Sister Mentor. Check out our list of community-based organizations and consider supporting one with your time, effort, or money. Liz & Ellie Local knows that involvement in our neighborhoods strengthens them for everyone.
