WHAT BILL AND MARTHA LEE HAD TO SAY...
"We selected Ellyn and her team after interviewing other, "top sellers" in Ventura because of her initial presentation and appearance. We now rate her as a top-of-the pack realtor for her Team's performance in handling the minute details and the nitty-gritty negotiation elements involved in selling our home at a price within 1/2 of 1% of her suggested listing. The Team approach really works for Ellyn in being on-site continually, using professional photographer, classy but understated ad, open-houses, and paperwork. They did everything perfectly and on-time. My wife and I are so glad we picked the best."
Bill and Martha Lee
WHAT LON HERRERA HAD TO SAY....
"Ellyn provided excellent support as we were looking to purchase a house. She was very responsive to phone calls and I always felt confident that I had the latest info on the house I was purchasing. She is very knowledgeable in all the areas of Ventura and found a house that was exactly what I was looking for on the first day I went out looking. I would highly recommend Ellyn as a realtor.
WHAT DON AND BLANDINA DEARMOND HAD TO SAY...
(When asked how their experience was working with Team Dembowski): "It was wonderful! Someone always kept us informed every step of the way.

(When asked if anyone stood out for exceptional service): "We felt like Ellyn went out of her way to help us purchase the home we really wanted.

Don and Blandina DeArmond
WHAT JULIE AND JOSH JOHNSON HAD TO SAY….
"Working with Team Dembowski was amazing. Buying our first home was terrifying and we expected it to be very stressful. Team Dembowski made the entire process smooth and enjoyable. Kellye showed great patience and Ellyn was so knowledgeable.
Kellye, with whom we mostly worked, was very prompt in getting back to us. She also made us feel very confident in each step of the home buying process. I really cannot think of any way that she could improve, as we felt so confident working with her.
I wouldn't recommend anyone else! They are so pleasant to work with."
Julie and Josh Johnson
WHAT DON AND MELONEY ROY HAD TO SAY….
“During our 35 year marriage, we have been involved in the sale of multiple properties, both residential and commercial. Without a doubt, Team Dembowski is the most professional real estate team that we have ever dealt with. The most outstanding difference was that they maintained their level of attention, energy and responsiveness even AFTER having acquired the listing – which is too often not the case with listing agents. From pricing the house, listing it, staging it, hosting open houses, responding to inquiries and most importantly, closing the deal – the Dembowski team was “on top if it.” Without qualification, I recommend them to anyone intending to sell their property. We also had occasion to work with Ellen Dembowski, as a buyer’s broker, when we were exploring the possibility of purchasing property in the Ventura area. She was able to discern what we were looking for and brought us only to properties that were of interest – not wasting our time. Her energy, enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism are truly appreciated!”
Don and Meloney Roy
WHAT LON AND DEBBIE HERRERA HAD TO SAY…
(When asked how their experience was working with Team Dembowski): “Team Dembowski is ALWAYS there for you. We never had to wait more than 30 minutes to get an answer to any questions or concerns we had. We felt that we were very important to them with any needs we had, not just what they got out of the situation, but what we needed.”
(When asked if there was anything Team Dembowski could have done better): “The finance with Diane was excellent. I can’t think of how it could have gone smoother. Also checking up on us along the way was immensely comforting.”
(When asked if they would recommend Team Dembowski): “Oh yes, because it’s a complete package deal. The care you show to us at each step. We NEVER felt alone or out of the loop.”
Lon and Debbie Herrera
WHAT GREG DEANE HAD TO SAY…
“Hi! Ellyn, I want to thank you for doing such a great job of selling my home. Working with you and you’re team made a normally tough and aggravating process actually fun. Doing it and getting a good price during a down market shows that you are a true pro. I’ll be in touch with you regarding buying those future properties in Oregon and/or Mexico. Again, thanks for all the help.”
WHAT JEFF AND HANNAH SMALARZ HAD TO SAY…
We just wanted to thank you and your team for all of your hard work and time. We love the house and are excited to make it our home. Thank you again for everything.”
Jeff and Hannah Smalarz
WHAT MARK MUELLER HAD TO SAY…
“As an out of town seller I could NOT have been more satisfied with Ellyn and the entire Dembowski team. They were professional, knowledgeable, available and took care of all the little details that would have been hard for me to do from a distance. In this market you really need someone with experience who knows the business inside and out and Ellyn is absolutely that person! I don’t usually write testimonials, but if you’re looking for a first class broker (whether you live in town or out of town) you can be assured you won’t go wrong with Ellyn. She’s great!”
WHAT BEN CLANCY HAD TO SAY…
“Ellyn and her team did everything they said they would and saved my new family from foreclosure and endless harassing calls from my bank. They communicated everything beforehand and turned my disaster into a success in less than 3 months!
I would recommend that anyone who is facing foreclosure or is trying to do an impossible short sale – they will get it done.”
WHAT MARCUS LOCKWOOD HAD TO SAY…
“Hi Ellyn and Team Dembowski;
I ran across a month-old Ventura County Star over the weekend and saw that you were awarded Top Producer for Prudential California Realty. What a wonderful accomplishment. 63 transactions in 2010 is an impressive achievement. I was the Mortgage Planner for two of those transactions. My clients purchased your listings at 3450 Olds Road, Oxnard and 2319 Chapel Drive, Camarillo. You and your highly organized team were great to work with. Whenever I needed something, DiAnn and Miki got me everything requested and more in a prompt manner. Because of everyone’s professionalism, my loans went through smoothly and my clients were extremely happy with the service I gave them. What I appreciated most was that you told me what you expected and then you allowed me to do my job. My regular updates to you and your team kept you informed and with everyone working together we had two pleasant transactions. I look forward to many more.
Just wanted to write and say congratulations on receiving the Chairman’s Circle Platinum Award. Having worked with you and your team on two of your transactions last year, I know your award was well deserved. Great Job.
Success to You!”
Certified Mortgage Planner
WHAT DAN & VIVIEN CHRISTENSEN HAD TO SAY…
“From the first moment we met Ellyn we knew instantly that she was the right person to help us through the process of finding our dream home. She was friendly yet professional and extremely knowledgeable in her field. As we began working with Ellyn we were able to see her personal integrity come through which only confirmed our satisfaction that she was our agent. We were also struck by the various volunteer work that Ellyn is involved with, because that speaks volumes to us of her character.
Even though we had a modest budget, she was very patient in understanding our needs and taste. She always made herself available and returned all our phone calls promptly.
Amazingly, Ellyn succeeded in finding us a wonderful home which far exceeded our expectations. Thank you for helping us realize our dream, we are thrilled by how much our house fits our lifestyle.
We would be proud to refer Ellyn’s expertise to others.”
Dan & Vivien Christensen
WHAT CHRIS & DOUG PETERSON HAD TO SAY…
“We are pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Ellyn Dembowski. In the fall of 2008 we purchased a home and Ellyn led us through the entire process step by step. Our active search spanned approximately three months, involving approximately 200 homes viewed on-line and 25 walk-throughs. In addition to being very pleasant and easy to work with, Ellyn is a take-charge sort of person who provided us with a continuous line-up of properties to consider until we found just the right one! During the process of making an offer she gave us sound bargaining advice, and presented the various options as well as her own recommendations so that we felt we were able to make good decisions.
Looking for a new house can be both exciting and anxiety provoking, but Ellyn eased us through it all, including the mind-boggling paper work. She was the perfect realtor and we would recommend her highly to anyone beginning his or her search for a new home!”
Chris & Doug Peterson
WHAT THE TAN FAMILY HAD TO SAY…
We can’t thank you enough for making our dream of home ownership come true. As this is our first home purchase, and with a new baby, you made the process amazingly smooth and stress-free. We appreciate your listening to our needs from the very beginning, and not pressuring us in any way. We know we would not have gotten the great deal on our home had you not helped us. From recommending lenders, painters, carpet cleaners, and other services, you really were a one-stop shop for us.
Thanks a million!”
The Tan Family
WHAT MICHELLE ROBERTSON HAD TO SAY…
“Ellyn Dembowski was everything we had hoped a realtor could be and more. She was our “go to” person for so many things during the extensive, and many times, confusing process of buying a home. It took us so long to find our dream home, and we are very thankful that Ellyn never gave up on us. She stuck by us to help us find exactly what we wanted and could afford. She was always encouraging and positive. When an offer of ours was accepted or counter offered, she was always very diligent in seeing that we got the appropriate paperwork signed and taken care of in a very timely manner- even if that meant she stayed late at the office or met us on the weekends. I could go on and on about the “above and beyond” attitude Ellyn had with us in buying our home, because she sure helped our dream come true.”
WHAT THE TUSSEY FAMILY HAD TO SAY…
We wanted to take a few moments to express our gratitude to you, for all of your help in the purchase of our new home. Your expertise, guidance, and advise were essential in obtaining our dream home. Ellyn, you went above and beyond our expectations in the process of purchasing our house; from writing a letter on our behalf to the seller’s agent, to referring us to professionals that helped make our house a home.
Thank you for your part in making our dreams come true. Our sons are thrilled with their new house and neighborhood full of new friends (not to mention, our big backyard for our big dog). We feel truly blessed with our new home and foresee many years full of countless happy memories. Ellyn, not only are you the world’s greatest realtor, you are a wonderful person that has become a part of our family. You are truly an extraordinary realtor and an angel on Earth!
Once again, thank you for all you’ve done for our family. God Bless You!!”
The Tussey Family
WHAT TIM HAMPSHIRE HAD TO SAY…
“I recently accepted an offer for a plant manager position in Ventura, California. With a new assignment and the demands for time that were placed on me, I had to work with a real estate professional that knew the community well.
Ellyn Dembowski was able to streamline my search process of finding a new residence. After taking time to initially understand my needs, she showed me numerous properties in a short period of time.
She was courteous, professional, and very timely with all requests. She was also a very good advocate for me as a buyer in making sure none of my rights as a consumer were overlooked. Ellyn was further very willing to put time in well outside of normal business hours to assure the process of moving forward as quickly as possible.
I have recommended Ellyn to other personnel who are being transferred to the community. I would encourage anyone else to utilize her as real estate professional.”
WHAT LINDA PETERSON HAD TO SAY…
This letter is important to me and harder to write than I thought it would be. I want to say thanks- and I want you to understand that I mean that in such a deeper way than the word expresses.
You and your team made a difficult process- selling my mom’s home after her death, my childhood home- easier with your compassion for us and your amazing knowledge of the process. You helped us to completely understand what would happen from preparing the home for listing through escrow’s closing. Your professionalism and ability to see through situations was amazing!
Not everyone loves their job and not everyone is competent at their choice of profession- you obviously love what you do and are amazingly professional and a pleasure to work with- I look forward to telling everyone I know to choose you as their real estate agent.
Again, thank you.”
WHAT DAVE & LORI KEEBLER HAD TO SAY…
“Ellyn Dembowski is both a connector and a finisher in her profession.
She stuck with us for almost a year while we looked at houses, made offers, lost offers, and had difficulty finding the right home. We were in a position sometimes where we didn’t qualify for a home we wanted, because we were still trying to sell our home. She helped us work through issues and connected us with Diane Shankwiler who did a great job assisting us with FHA loan requirements.
Ellyn persevered and helped us find a home that we qualified for without having to sell our home. She kept expediting the process to ensure we would close in a timely manner. She is very detail oriented and negotiates well. When she was unavailable because of another client, or on vacation, she always had another agent, Kaye Ford, assist us.
The other thing about Ellyn is that she is a connector. She is well established in the business community and knows a lot of people who can help you in all kinds of areas. She connected us with Wheaton Moving and Storage Company. They did a great job moving our house items from Oregon to California at a reasonable price. She sent us several names and numbers of professionals who could help us with house repairs.
We appreciate Ellyn for her excellent service and professional experience.”
Dave and Lori Keebler
WHAT PAM EDDINGER HAD TO SAY…
“A colleague from work referred Ellyn to us. Ellyn was knowledgeable about the local area, and was able to identify a number of choices for our family quickly. Once we decided to purchase, the process went smoothly. We visited half a dozen houses on one Saturday, and were able to make a good decision that same day. She answered our questions in detail and gave good, honest advice.
The negotiation process was also made easy by Ellyn’s experience. She understood the buyer and our situation, and she advocated for us in a non-confrontational way that resulted in quick closing.
Ellyn also assisted us in our transition by referring us to a good lender, and providing lists of movers, painters, and tradesmen, some of whom we still use today. She fielded numerous phone calls from us when we had questions…even almost a year after the sale.
I recommend Ellyn’s professional services without reservation. It was a pleasure doing business with her.”
WHAT BRYAN JOHNSON HAD TO SAY…
“I have worked with Ellyn in a number of occasions and have been so impressed with her marketing prowess, forward thinking and total service platform for her clients. By my account her listings seem to move faster than anyone else in her market due to vast network, community involvement, unique abilities and aggressiveness in getting things done. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Ellyn in the past and I look forward to many future deals together. I would recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the Ventura area.”
WHAT PATRICIA LYONS-BLUM HAD TO SAY…
“Ellyn is a fabulous Realtor. She is professional, honest, diligent, and efficient. Her experience gives an extra edge to being aware of details and making a sale work for everyone involved. She is the best we have ever worked with in this industry.”
